CarMax Reports Record Fourth Quarter and Fiscal Year Results

RICHMOND, Va.--()--CarMax, Inc. (NYSE:KMX) today reported record results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended February 28, 2015.

  • Net sales and operating revenues increased 14.2% to $3.51 billion in the fourth quarter. For the fiscal year, net sales and operating revenues increased 13.5% to $14.27 billion.
  • Used unit sales in comparable stores increased 7.0% in the fourth quarter and 4.4% in the fiscal year.
  • Total used unit sales rose 12.4% in the fourth quarter and 10.5% in the fiscal year.
  • Our data indicates that in our markets, we increased our share of the 0-10 year old used car market by approximately 5% in calendar year 2014.
  • Total wholesale unit sales increased 12.3% in the fourth quarter and 9.8% in the fiscal year.
  • CarMax Auto Finance (CAF) income increased 11.8% to $90.4 million in the fourth quarter. For the fiscal year, CAF income rose 9.3% to $367.3 million.
  • Net earnings increased 44.3% to $143.1 million in the fourth quarter and 21.3% to $597.4 million for the fiscal year. Net earnings per diluted share rose 52.3% to $0.67 per share in the fourth quarter and 26.4% to $2.73 per share for the fiscal year. During the fourth quarter, net income was increased by $4.2 million, or $0.02 per diluted share, related to an adjustment to capitalized interest expense.
    • For the fourth quarter, year-over-year comparisons were affected by (i) the previously reported correction to our accounting for cancellation reserves for extended protection plan (EPP) products recorded in the fourth quarter of the prior year and (ii) the adjustment to capitalized interest expense in the current year’s fourth quarter. Excluding these items, fourth quarter net earnings grew 19.7% and net earnings per diluted share increased 27.5%.
    • For the fiscal year, year-over-year comparisons were affected by (i) the previously announced receipt of proceeds in a class action lawsuit in the second quarter of the current year and (ii) the fiscal 2014 correction to our accounting for EPP cancellation reserves. Excluding these items, fiscal 2015 net earnings grew 15.9% and net earnings per diluted share increased 20.3%.

“We had another great year, achieving several new milestones,” said Tom Folliard, president and chief executive officer. “Since opening our first store in 1993, we’ve now retailed well over 5 million used cars and 3 million wholesale cars, which is a testament to the strength of our brand. In fiscal 2015, the continued strong performance of our used, wholesale and CAF operations, along with the growth of our store base and our ongoing share repurchase program, contributed to our record earnings per share.”

Fourth Quarter Business Performance Review

Sales. Used vehicle sales growth remained strong, with total used vehicle unit sales climbing 12.4% and comparable store used unit sales up 7.0% versus the prior year’s fourth quarter. Comparable store used unit sales growth benefited from several factors, including increased customer traffic and 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, was 17.0% in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015 compared with 17.6% in the corresponding prior year period.

Our data indicates that in our markets, we increased our share of the 0- to 10-year old used vehicle market by approximately 5% in calendar year 2014.

Wholesale vehicle unit sales grew 12.3% compared with last year’s fourth quarter, primarily benefiting from improved appraisal traffic and the growth in our store base.

Other sales and revenues were up significantly compared with the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014, primarily due to our previously disclosed correction in the accounting related to EPP cancellation reserves, which reduced last year’s fourth quarter results. The correction related to cancellation reserve activity for fiscal 2014, fiscal 2013 and fiscal 2012. The portion related to periods earlier than the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014 was $27.5 million, or $0.07 per diluted share. The portion related to fiscal 2013 and fiscal 2012 was $19.5 million, or $0.05 per diluted share. Excluding this correction, fourth quarter other sales and revenues increased 17.4% to $76.9 million and EPP revenues increased 16.0% to $67.3 million, primarily due to the growth in our retail unit sales.

Gross Profit. Total gross profit increased 23.9% to $475.8 million. Excluding last year’s correction to the EPP cancellation reserves, total gross profit rose 15.6%. Used vehicle gross profit rose 12.7%, driven by the increase in total used unit sales. Used vehicle gross profit per unit remained stable at $2,148 versus $2,141 in the prior year’s fourth quarter. Wholesale vehicle gross profit increased 22.0%, reflecting the combination of the 12.3% increase in wholesale unit sales and an increase in wholesale vehicle gross profit per unit, which climbed $83 to $1,036. Excluding the prior year’s EPP cancellation reserve correction, other gross profit rose 23.1% in the fourth quarter.

SG&A. Selling, general and administrative expenses increased 10.9% to $330.0 million. The increase reflected a combination of factors, including the 14% increase in our store base since the beginning of last year’s fourth quarter (representing the addition of 18 stores), a $9.3 million increase in share-based compensation expense and higher variable selling costs resulting from our 7.0% increase in comparable store used unit sales. SG&A per retail unit declined $23 to $2,186 in the current year’s fourth quarter. For the full year, fiscal 2015 SG&A expenses were reduced by $20.9 million, or $0.06 per diluted share, representing the previously disclosed receipt of settlement proceeds in a class action lawsuit.

CarMax Auto Finance.(1) CAF income increased 11.8% to $90.4 million, driven by an increase in auto loan receivables, partially offset by a lower total interest margin. CAF income continued to benefit from favorable loss experience. Average managed receivables grew 17.8% to $8.30 billion. The total interest margin, which reflects the spread between interest and fees charged to consumers and our funding costs, declined to 6.3% of average managed receivables in the current quarter from 6.6% in last year’s fourth quarter.

In January 2014, CAF launched a test originating loans for customers who typically would be financed by our third-party subprime providers. Through February 28, 2015, we had originated $72.2 million of receivables in this test, of which $15.5 million were originated in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015. We plan to extend this test at a similar rate of originations while continuing to evaluate the performance of these loans.

Interest Expense. Interest expense declined to $2.2 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015, from $7.5 million in the prior year’s quarter. We capitalize interest in connection with the construction of stores. During the current quarter, we capitalized $8.9 million, of which $6.9 million, or $0.02 per diluted share, related to earlier quarters of fiscal 2015. Excluding this adjustment, the year-over-year increase in interest expense largely reflected the $300 million term loan entered into in November 2014.

Store Openings. During the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015, we opened one store, entering the Cleveland market. In total, we opened 13 stores in fiscal 2015, bringing our used car store count to 144 as of February 28, 2015. Subsequent to the end of the quarter, we entered the Minneapolis/St. Paul market with one store and opened a third store in the Philadelphia market.

Share Repurchase Program. During the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015, we repurchased 3.4 million shares of common stock for $210.6 million pursuant to our share repurchase program. For the fiscal year, we repurchased 17.5 million shares at a cost of $912.8 million. As of February 28, 2015, we had $2.37 billion remaining available for repurchase under the program.

Fiscal 2016 Capital Spending Plan

We currently plan to open between 13 and 16 stores in each of the next three fiscal years. In fiscal 2016, we plan to open 14 new stores and relocate one store whose lease is expiring. We also plan to remodel approximately 15 older stores. We currently estimate capital expenditures will total approximately $360 million in fiscal 2016.

(1) Although CAF benefits from certain indirect overhead expenditures, we have not allocated indirect costs to CAF to avoid making subjective allocation decisions.
