Motorcar Parts Of America Reports Fiscal 2014 First Quarter Results

LOS ANGELES, Aug. 9, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Motorcar Parts of America, Inc. (Nasdaq:MPAA) today reported results for its fiscal 2014 first quarter – reflecting a one-time gain on the deconsolidation of assets and liabilities of the company's previous undercar business.

Net sales for the fiscal 2014 first quarter increased 7.4 percent to $50.2 million from $46.8 million for the same period last year. Net income from continuing operations was $103,000, or $0.01 per diluted share, compared with net income from continuing operations of $2.4 million, or $0.17 per diluted share, a year ago. Net income from continuing operations in the current year was impacted by a mark-to-market non-cash loss of $2.3 million related to warrants and forward currency contracts, and approximately $2.4 million in expenses related to the company's previous subsidiaries. Excluding certain costs and non-cash expenses noted in the Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures tables below, adjusted net income was $3.2 million, or $0.22 per diluted share, compared with $2.0 million, or $0.14 per diluted share, for the same period a year earlier.

Net income for the quarter was $101.0 million, or $6.94 per diluted share, reflecting a one-time gain from deconsolidation of $100.9 million, compared with a net loss of $9.9 million, or $0.71 per basic share, a year earlier.

Gross profit for the first fiscal quarter was $16.0 million compared with $14.8 million a year earlier. Gross profit from continuing operations as a percentage of sales was approximately 32 percent for both periods.

Excluding certain costs and non-cash expenses noted in the Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures tables below, adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations for the first fiscal 2014 quarter was $9.8 million compared with $7.8 million for the same period a year earlier.

"The automotive aftermarket continues to be robust, particularly for rotating electrical products and other non-discretionary parts. Moving forward we anticipate continued momentum in our base business, and in our new wheel hub assembly business. We are off to an excellent start for our new fiscal year with all of our products. We expect strong growth supported by a cash position of $15.2 million and an available credit line of $18.0 million at June 30, 2013," said Selwyn Joffe, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Motorcar Parts of America.

Joffe noted that the company expects to realize tax benefits of approximately $30 million as a result of the losses incurred through its previous subsidiary.

Use of Non-GAAP Measures

We define adjusted net loss as net loss adjusted for matters affecting net sales for our undercar product line, financing, consulting and other fees, share-based compensation expense, undercar product lines not supported, and other matters. We define Adjusted EBITDA as adjusted net income (loss), plus interest expense, income tax expense and depreciation and amortization. We calculate those measures for the entire company as well as the rotating electrical segment. Adjusted net loss does not reflect many items that affect the company's net loss, including many items related to Fenco.  Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect the impact of a number of items that affect the company's net income, including financing, transition and acquisition-related costs.  Adjusted EBITDA and adjusted net loss are not measures of financial performance under GAAP, and should not be considered as alternatives to net income or income from operations as a measure of liquidity.  Adjusted EBITDA and adjusted net loss have significant limitations as analytical tools, and should not be considered in isolation, or as a substitute for analysis of the company's results as reported under GAAP.  For a reconciliation of net income (loss) to Adjusted EBITDA and adjusted net loss, for the company and the rotating electrical segment, see the financial tables included in the press release.

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement the consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"), the Company has included the following non-GAAP adjusted financial measures in this press release and in the webcast to discuss the Company's financial results for the fiscal 2014 first quarter and fiscal 2013 first quarter. Each of these non-GAAP adjusted financial measures is adjusted from results based on GAAP to exclude certain expenses and gains.  Among other things, the Company uses such non-GAAP adjusted financial measures in addition to and in conjunction with corresponding GAAP measures to help analyze the performance of its business. 

These non-GAAP adjusted financial measures reflect an additional way of viewing aspects of the Company's operations that, when viewed with the GAAP results and the reconciliations to corresponding GAAP financial measures, provide a more complete understanding of the Company's results of operations and the factors and trends affecting the Company's business. However, these non-GAAP adjusted financial measures should be considered as a supplement to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, the corresponding measures calculated in accordance with GAAP.
