O’Reilly Automotive, Inc. Reports Second Quarter 2020 Results

  • Second quarter comparable store sales increase of 16.2%, total sales growth of 19.4%
  • 57% increase in second quarter diluted earnings per share to $7.10

/EIN News/ -- SPRINGFIELD, Mo., July 29, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- O’Reilly Automotive, Inc. (the “Company” or “O’Reilly”) (Nasdaq:  ORLY), a leading retailer in the automotive aftermarket industry, today announced record revenue and earnings for its second quarter ended June 30, 2020.

2nd Quarter Financial Results
Greg Johnson, O’Reilly’s CEO and Co-President, commented, “During the second quarter and through the date of this release, the communities we serve faced significant, ongoing challenges from the COVID-19 pandemic, and our top priority continues to be the protection of the health and safety of our Team Members and customers.  After experiencing significant COVID-related sales headwinds in the first two weeks of the quarter, we saw an immediate and dramatic improvement in our business and sustained robust, record-setting sales volumes throughout the remainder of our second quarter.  Our DIY business was extremely strong and the bigger contributor to our 16.2% increase in comparable store sales for the quarter; however, our professional business also improved significantly as we progressed through the quarter, generating robust comparable store sales above our expectations in May and June.  It is clear there were several positive macroeconomic factors that supported the strong demand in our industry in the second quarter, including, among others, the government stimulus and unemployment benefits and the re-opening of consumer activity as stay-at-home orders began lifting.  As beneficial as the market conditions were in the second quarter, we know our record-setting financial performance would not have been possible without outstanding execution by our dedicated, hard-working Team.  We are extremely proud of the outstanding job our Team has done to implement safety measures while still providing the outstanding service that has been so critical to our customers during this pandemic.”

Mr. Johnson further commented, “Our Team’s performance in the second quarter is even more impressive in light of the cost control steps we executed to conserve cash and align our business with the severe headwinds we were experiencing at the beginning of the second quarter.  We were very pleased to see our business rebound, as our customers began to benefit under the CARES Act in the middle of April, but we maintained a prudent, cautious approach as we progressed through the second quarter, taking into consideration the high level of uncertainty regarding how our business would perform week to week.  The combination of strong sales and strong expense control resulted in an incredible operating profit margin of 23.8% during the second quarter, which exceeds our previous best single quarter performance by well over 300 basis points.  While we recognize this remarkably strong leverage of SG&A expense is not sustainable over the long term and expect our per-store dollar spend to increase as we continually match service levels to the business environment, our Team’s ability to deliver such an outstanding quarter is an incredible accomplishment, and we want to offer our sincere thanks to Team O’Reilly for their selfless dedication to our customers.”

Sales for the second quarter ended June 30, 2020, increased $502 million, or 19%, to $3.09 billion from $2.59 billion for the same period one year ago.  Gross profit for the second quarter increased 20% to $1.64 billion (or 53.0% of sales) from $1.37 billion (or 52.8% of sales) for the same period one year ago.  Selling, general and administrative expenses (“SG&A”) for the second quarter increased 4% to $901 million (or 29.1% of sales) from $870 million (or 33.6% of sales) for the same period one year ago.  Operating income for the second quarter increased 48% to $736 million (or 23.8% of sales) from $498 million (or 19.2% of sales) for the same period one year ago.

Net income for the second quarter ended June 30, 2020, increased $178 million, or 50%, to $532 million (or 17.2% of sales) from $354 million (or 13.7% of sales) for the same period one year ago.  Diluted earnings per common share for the second quarter increased 57% to $7.10 on 75 million shares versus $4.51 on 78 million shares for the same period one year ago.

Year-to-Date Financial Results
Sales for the first six months of 2020 increased $568 million, or 11%, to $5.57 billion from $5.00 billion for the same period one year ago.  Gross profit for the first six months of 2020 increased 11% to $2.93 billion (or 52.7% of sales) from $2.65 billion (or 52.9% of sales) for the same period one year ago.  SG&A for the first six months of 2020 increased 4% to $1.77 billion (or 31.8% of sales) from $1.70 billion (or 34.1% of sales) for the same period one year ago.  Operating income for the first six months of 2020 increased 23% to $1.16 billion (or 20.8% of sales) from $943 million (or 18.9% of sales) for the same period one year ago. 

Net income for the first six months of 2020 increased $157 million, or 23%, to $832 million (or 14.9% of sales) from $675 million (or 13.5% of sales) for the same period one year ago.  Diluted earnings per common share for the first six months of 2020 increased 29% to $11.06 on 75 million shares versus $8.56 on 79 million shares for the same period one year ago. 

2nd Quarter Comparable Store Sales Results
Comparable store sales are calculated based on the change in sales for U.S. stores open at least one year and exclude sales of specialty machinery, sales to independent parts stores and sales to Team Members, as well as sales from Leap Day in the six months ended June 30, 2020.  Online sales, resulting from ship-to-home orders and pick-up-in-store orders, for U.S. stores open at least one year, are included in the comparable store sales calculation.  Comparable store sales increased 16.2% for the second quarter ended June 30, 2020, on top of 3.4% for the same period one year ago.  Comparable store sales increased 7.5% for the six months ended June 30, 2020, on top of 3.3% for the same period one year ago.

Share Repurchase Program
In order to conserve liquidity in response to COVID-19, the Company suspended its share repurchase program on March 16, 2020.  The Company continued to evaluate business conditions and its liquidity and, as a result of this evaluation, resumed its share repurchase program on May 29, 2020.  During the second quarter ended June 30, 2020, the Company repurchased 0.2 million shares of its common stock, at an average price per share of $417.79, for a total investment of $77 million.  During the first six months ended of 2020, the Company repurchased 1.7 million shares of its common stock, at an average price per share of $390.14, for a total investment of $651 million.  Subsequent to the end of the second quarter and through the date of this release, the Company repurchased an additional 0.1 million shares of its common stock, at an average price per share of $423.09, for a total investment of $36 million.  The Company has repurchased a total of 77.9 million shares of its common stock under its share repurchase program since the inception of the program in January of 2011 and through the date of this release, at an average price of $165.10, for a total aggregate investment of $12.87 billion.  As of the date of this release, the Company had approximately $882 million remaining under its current share repurchase authorization.

Continued Suspension of 2020 Guidance
As previously announced, the Company withdrew all previously issued 2020 guidance, and given the ongoing uncertainty related to COVID-19, the Company is not resuming 2020 guidance at this time. 

Non-GAAP Information
This release contains certain financial information not derived in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”).  These items include adjusted debt to earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, share-based compensation and rent (“EBITDAR”) and free cash flow.  The Company does not, nor does it suggest investors should, consider such non-GAAP financial measures in isolation from, or as a substitute for, GAAP financial information.  The Company believes that the presentation of adjusted debt to EBITDAR and free cash flow provide meaningful supplemental information to both management and investors that is indicative of the Company’s core operations.  The Company has included a reconciliation of this additional information to the most comparable GAAP measure in the selected financial information below.
