CarMax Reports Record Third Quarter Results

RICHMOND, Va.--()--CarMax, Inc. (NYSE:KMX) today reported record results for the third quarter ended November 30, 2014.

  • Net sales and operating revenues increased 15.8% to $3.41 billion.
  • Used unit sales in comparable stores increased 7.4%.
  • Total used unit sales rose 14.0%.
  • Total wholesale unit sales increased 10.0%.
  • CarMax Auto Finance (CAF) income increased 6.9% to $89.7 million.
  • Net earnings grew 22.2% to $130.0 million. Net earnings per diluted share rose 27.7% to $0.60.

“We had another great quarter,” said Tom Folliard, president and chief executive officer. “Continued strong performance in our used, wholesale and CAF operations, along with the growth of our store base and our ongoing share repurchase program contributed to our record third quarter earnings per share.”

Third Quarter Business Performance Review

Sales. Total used vehicle unit sales grew 14.0% and comparable store used unit sales increased 7.4% versus the prior year’s third quarter. Comparable store used unit sales benefited from a combination of factors, including our sixth consecutive quarter of growth in customer traffic, as well as improved conversion.

The percentage of retail vehicles financed by third-party subprime providers (those who purchase financings at a discount), combined with those financed under the previously announced CAF loan origination test, declined from 17.7% in the third quarter of fiscal 2014 to 15.2% in this year’s third quarter.

Wholesale vehicle unit sales grew 10.0% versus the third quarter of fiscal 2014. Wholesale unit sales primarily benefited from increased appraisal traffic and the growth of our store base.

Other sales and revenues increased $17.3 million, or 30.2%, year-over-year. Extended protection plan (EPP) revenues (which includes extended service plan and guaranteed asset protection revenues) rose $12.9 million, or 26.5%, versus the prior year’s quarter. Last year’s third quarter EPP revenues were reduced by an adjustment to the reserve for estimated cancellations of $8.8 million ($0.02 per diluted share). The remainder of the increase in EPP revenues reflected the growth in our retail unit sales, partially offset by a somewhat lower EPP penetration rate. Net third-party finance fees improved $2.5 million versus last year’s third quarter primarily due to the reduction in the percentage of sales financed by third-party subprime providers.

Gross Profit. Total gross profit increased 17.0% to $446.6 million. Used vehicle gross profit rose 15.2%, primarily driven by the 14.0% increase in total used unit sales. Used vehicle gross profit per unit rose $23 to $2,172. Wholesale vehicle gross profit increased 14.8% versus the prior year’s quarter, driven by the combination of the 10.0% increase in wholesale unit sales and an improvement in wholesale vehicle gross profit per unit, which rose 4.5%, or $40, to $927. Other gross profit rose 30.9% reflecting the improvement in other sales and revenues.

SG&A. SG&A expenses increased 11.3% to $316.6 million. The increase primarily reflected the 16% increase in our store base since the beginning of last year’s third quarter (representing the addition of 20 stores) and higher variable selling costs resulting from our 7.4% increase in comparable store used unit sales. SG&A per retail unit declined $52 to $2,243, as our comparable store unit sales growth generated overhead leverage.

CarMax Auto Finance.(1) CAF income increased 6.9% to $89.7 million, driven by an increase in average managed receivables, partly offset by a lower total interest margin percentage. Average managed receivables grew 17.9% to $8.03 billion as CAF loan originations have continued to grow. The total interest margin, which reflects the spread between interest and fees charged to consumers and our funding costs, declined to 6.4% of average managed receivables in the current quarter from 6.8% in last year’s third quarter.

We continued our test to originate loans for customers who typically would be financed by our third-party subprime providers. During the third quarter of fiscal 2015, we originated $12.3 million of loans in this test, representing 0.5% of retail unit sales. As of November 30, 2014, a total of $56.7 million of loans had been originated in this test.

Store Openings. During the third quarter of fiscal 2015, we opened four stores, including two stores in new markets (Tupelo, Mississippi; and Reno, Nevada). We also added stores in the Portland, Oregon and Raleigh, North Carolina markets. Through the first nine months of the fiscal year, we opened 12 stores.

Financing Activities.

Our third quarter financing activities included the following:

  • We closed on a $300 million term loan, due November 2017.
  • We increased the capacity of our unsecured revolving credit facility by $300 million, to a total of $1.0 billion. The terms and expiration date of this facility were unchanged.
  • We increased the capacity of our warehouse facilities by $200 million, to a total of $2.3 billion. These facilities represent our initial funding source for CAF auto loan receivables.
  • We repurchased 6.2 million shares of common stock for $327.2 million pursuant to our share repurchase program. As of November 30, 2014, we had $2.58 billion remaining available for repurchase under the program.
