"Results for the quarter and nine months reflect continued positive momentum in our rotating electrical segment. We have made continued progress in our transition of the company's undercar segment -- highlighted by the commencement of new undercar product shipments from Torrance, California; exiting the third-party operated distribution in Pennsylvania; the identification of further cost-reductions and streamlining opportunities; and, the relocation of accounting personnel to Torrance from Toronto along with the implementation of our new ERP system. While the transition is progressing well, we are adapting to the new challenges of a downsized Fenco," said Selwyn Joffe, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Motorcar Parts.
