WESTCHESTER, Ill., Aug. 4, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Fenix Parts, Inc. (Nasdaq:FENX), a leading recycler and reseller of original equipment manufacturer ("OEM") automotive products, today filed its required Form 8-K/A providing the first quarter 2015 financial results of the other founding companies (Eiss Brothers, Inc., GO Auto Recycling, Jerry Brown, Ltd., and Leesville Auto Wreckers, Inc.). The company previously reported financial results for Fenix Parts, Inc., the designated accounting acquirer, as well as the financial statements for its accounting co-predecessors (the combined Beagell Group and the combined Standard companies) in the 10Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2015 filed on June 29, 2015. The 8-K/A also includes the pro forma statements of income for Fenix and all of the founding companies for the year ended December 31, 2014 and for the three months ended March 31, 2015, and a pro forma balance sheet for Fenix and all of the founding companies as of March 31, 2015.

As reported, the first quarter results are for a period in which the other founding companies were private companies and operated on a standalone basis. The other founding companies' revenues for the three months ended March 31, 2015 were $14.3 million compared with $13.2 million for the first quarter of 2014.

"Since our May IPO, we have been focused on bringing together our management team, integrating our founding companies and executing our expansion strategy," said Kent Robertson, CEO of Fenix Parts. "Art Golden and John Blaseos recently joined Fenix as Chief Operating Officer and EVP-Supply Chain, respectively, completing the formation of our senior management team. They provide a demonstrated history of execution with consolidation, business process improvement, logistics and customer service."

"As we further integrate the businesses, our expanded inventory of quality parts, broader distribution network and focus on service has been well received by our customer base. In addition, we are pleased that our acquisition pipeline continues to grow as more auto recyclers recognize that Fenix Parts presents an opportunity for like-minded companies seeking long-term growth," Robertson concluded.
