Fenix Parts Announces First Quarter 2015 10-Q Filing

WESTCHESTER, Ill., June 29, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Fenix Parts, Inc. (Nasdaq:FENX), a leading recycler and reseller of original equipment manufacturer ("OEM") automotive products, today filed its first quarter 2015 10-Q for Fenix Parts, Inc. (the designated accounting acquirer) and for the Beagell Group and Standard (the designated accounting co-predecessors), as such companies were described in the prospectus dated May 14, 2015 for Fenix Parts' initial public offering (IPO).

As reported, the first quarter results are for a period in which Fenix Parts, Inc., the Beagell Group and Standard were private companies and operated on a standalone basis. As previously announced, financial results for the other founding companies (Eiss Brothers, Inc., GO Auto Recycling, Jerry Brown, Ltd., and Leesville Auto Wreckers, Inc.) are not included in these first quarter results but will be provided as part of the company's required Form 8-K/A to be filed in early August.

Fenix Parts, Inc. did not generate any revenues for the three months ended March 31, 2015 and incurred costs of $2.6 million during the quarter related to the audits of the founding companies and other pre-IPO costs. Fenix Parts, Inc., did not have any activity in the prior year period. Beagell Group revenues for the three months ended March 31, 2015 were $7.1 million compared with $7.4 million for the first quarter of 2014. The Beagell Group's net income for the first quarter of 2015 was $0.4 million compared with $0.8 million for the first quarter of 2014. The Standard companies' revenues for the three months ended March 31, 2015 were $5.6 million compared with $7.5 million for the first quarter of 2014. Standard's net income for the first quarter of 2015 was $0.2 million compared with $0.1 million for the first quarter of 2014.

As reported in the May 14, 2015 IPO prospectus, the Beagell Group and Standard each experienced lower revenues in the first quarter of 2015 due to lower scrap prices, which negatively impacted their self-service operations, and to Standard's decision to accumulate scrap with a view to selling it when scrap prices stabilized. Despite the negative effect of lower scrap prices and the deferral of scrap sales, Fenix Parts, Inc.'s pro forma revenues – which includes all of the founding companies – remained stable, at approximately $26 million for the first quarter of 2015.

Kent Robertson, CEO of Fenix Parts, said, "After completing the IPO and closing on the acquisition of our eight businesses on May 19, we have now begun to operate as a combined entity under the Fenix Parts umbrella. Following the combination, we met with our managers and employees at each facility to communicate the benefits of our business combination, including increased parts availability, a broader distribution network and our focus on customer service. Our leadership team is largely in place, including a dedicated team focused on expansion into new markets, and we are coordinating our vehicle procurement process within the group. We have brought together eight industry leaders to create a premier auto parts recycler and remain excited about the many opportunities that lie ahead for Fenix as we work to deliver long-term value for our customers and shareholders."
