CHICAGO, July 28, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- LKQ Corporation (Nasdaq:LKQ) today reported record revenue for the second quarter of 2016 of $2.45 billion, an increase of 33.3% as compared to $1.84 billion in the second quarter of 2015. Net income for the second quarter of 2016 was $140.7 million, an increase of 17.6% as compared to $119.7 million for the same period of 2015. On an adjusted basis, net income was $169.2 million, an increase of 34.0% as compared to the $126.3 million for the same period of 2015. Diluted earnings per share for the second quarter of 2016 was $0.46, an increase of 17.9% as compared to the $0.39 for the same period of 2015. On an adjusted basis, diluted earnings per share was $0.55 in the second quarter of 2016 reflecting a 34.1% increase over $0.41 for the same period of 2015. See the reconciliation of net income and diluted earnings per share to adjusted net income and adjusted diluted earnings per share included with this press release.

“Despite tough comparable periods and the carryover impact of the mild winter in North America, organic revenue growth for parts and services was a respectable 5.4% during the quarter, demonstrating the resiliency of our operating and diversification strategy," stated Robert Wagman, President and Chief Executive Officer of LKQ Corporation. “We improved gross margins in our North American operations, which included 40 basis points of improvement from the aftermarket procurement initiatives implemented during 2016. Our European segment continued to show solid improvement in the second quarter, with its segment EBITDA margins increasing 40 basis points sequentially and 30 basis points year-over-year, even after absorbing the incremental cost associated with the new distribution facility in Tamworth, England. I am also pleased with the overall earnings growth achieved in the quarter, which is partly attributable to the smooth integration of the Rhiag and PGW acquisitions we completed earlier this year.”

On a six month year-to-date basis, revenue was $4.37 billion, an increase of 21.0% from $3.61 billion for the comparable period of 2015. Parts and services organic revenue growth for the first six months of 2016 was 5.8%. Net income for the first six months of 2016 was $248.5 million, as compared to $226.8 million for the first half of 2015. Diluted earnings per share was $0.81 for the first six months of 2016, reflecting a 9.5% increase as compared to $0.74 for the comparable period of 2015. On an adjusted basis, diluted earnings per share was $0.97 in the first six months of 2016 reflecting a 22.8% increase over $0.79 for the same period of 2015.

Balance Sheet and Liquidity

Cash flow from operations totaled $355.2 million on a six month year-to-date basis, of which approximately $102 million was invested in capital expenditures and other long term assets. As of June 30, 2016, the balance sheet reflected cash and equivalents of $273 million and outstanding debt of $3.3 billion.

(1)Loss on debt extinguishment is considered a component of interest in calculating EBITDA.
We present EBITDA as we believe it is a supplemental financial measure that offers investors, securities analysts and other interested parties useful information to evaluate our operating performance and the value of our business. EBITDA provides insight into our profitability trends, and allows investors, securities analysts and other interested parties to analyze our operating results with and without the impact of depreciation, amortization, interest (which includes loss on debt extinguishment) and income tax expense. We believe EBITDA is used by investors, securities analysts and other interested parties in evaluating the operating performance and the value of other companies, many of which present EBITDA when reporting their results. EBITDA should not be construed as an alternative to operating income, net income or net cash provided by (used in) operating activities, as determined in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States. In addition, not all companies that report EBITDA information calculate EBITDA in the same manner as we do and, accordingly, our calculation is not necessarily comparable to similarly named measures of other companies and may not be an appropriate measure for performance relative to other companies.

The key measure of segment profit or loss reviewed by our chief operating decision maker, who is our Chief Executive Officer, is Segment EBITDA. Segment EBITDA is used by management to compare profitability among our segments and evaluate business strategies. We also consider Segment EBITDA to be a useful financial measure in evaluating our operating performance, as it provides investors, securities analysts and other interested parties with supplemental information regarding the underlying trends in our ongoing operations. Segment EBITDA includes revenue and expenses that are controllable by the segment. Corporate and administrative expenses are allocated to the segments based on usage, with shared expenses apportioned based on the segment's percentage of consolidated revenue. Segment EBITDA is calculated as EBITDA excluding restructuring and acquisition related expenses, change in fair value of contingent consideration liabilities, other acquisition related gains and losses and equity in earnings of unconsolidated subsidiaries. EBITDA, which is the basis for Segment EBITDA, is calculated as net income excluding depreciation, amortization, interest (which includes loss on debt extinguishment) and income tax expense.

We present Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Diluted Earnings per Share (“EPS”) as we believe these measures are useful for evaluating the core operating performance of our business across reporting periods and in analyzing the company’s historical operating results. Additionally, these measures are used by management in its decision making and overall evaluation of operating performance of the company and are included in the metrics used to determine incentive compensation for our senior management. In the table above, Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Diluted EPS are defined as Net Income and Diluted EPS adjusted to eliminate the impact of restructuring and acquisition related expenses, loss on debt extinguishment, amortization of acquired intangibles, the change in fair value of contingent consideration liabilities, other acquisition related gains and losses, and the tax effect of these adjustments. The tax effect of these adjustments is calculated using the effective tax rate for the applicable period. Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Diluted EPS should not be construed as alternatives to Net Income or Diluted EPS as determined in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States. In addition, because not all companies use identical calculations, this presentation of Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Diluted EPS may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies.

The following unaudited table reconciles consolidated growth for Parts & Services Revenue and Total Revenue to constant currency revenue growth for the same measure:
Three Months Ended Three Months Ended
June 30, 2016 June 30, 2016
Parts & Services Total Revenue
Revenue growth as reported 36.8% Revenue growth as reported 33.3%
Less: Currency impact (1.4%) Less: Currency impact (1.3%)
Revenue growth at constant currency 38.2% Revenue growth at constant currency 34.6%
We evaluate growth in our operations on both an as reported and a constant currency basis. The constant currency presentation, which is a non-GAAP measure, excludes the impact of fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates. We believe providing constant currency information provides valuable supplemental information regarding our growth, consistent with how we evaluate our performance, as this statistic removes the translation impact of exchange rate fluctuations, which is non-operational. Constant currency revenue results are calculated by translating prior year revenue in local currency using the current year's currency conversion rate. This non-GAAP measure has limitations as an analytical tool and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for an analysis of our results as reported under GAAP. Our use of this term may vary from the use of similarly-titled measures by other issuers due to the potential inconsistencies in the method of calculation and differences due to items subject to interpretation.
