Lithia Reports First Quarter 2020 Results

Declares Dividend of $0.30 Per Share for First Quarter

MEDFORD, Ore.--()--Lithia Motors, Inc. (NYSE: LAD) today reported first quarter 2020 revenue of $2.8 billion. First quarter 2020 net income per diluted share was $1.97, a 19% decrease from $2.42 per diluted share reported in the first quarter of 2019. Adjusted first quarter 2020 net income per diluted share was $2.01, an 18% decrease compared to adjusted net income of $2.44 per diluted share in the same period of 2019.

First quarter 2020 net income was $46 million, an 18% decrease compared to net income of $56 million in the same period of 2019. Adjusted first quarter 2020 net income was $47 million, a 17% decrease compared to adjusted net income of $57 million for the same period of 2019.

As shown in the attached non-GAAP reconciliation tables, the 2020 first quarter adjusted results exclude a $0.04 net non-core charge related to insurance reserves and acquisition expenses partially offset by a net gain on sale of stores. The 2019 first quarter adjusted results exclude a $0.02 net non-core charge due to acquisition expenses and an asset impairment partially offset by a net gain on sale of stores.

First Quarter-over-Quarter Operating Highlights:

  • Same store new vehicle sales decreased 10.6 %
  • Same store used vehicle retail sales increased 2.7%
  • Same store F&I per unit increased 6.1% to $1,557
  • Same store service, body, and part sales increased 0.5 %
  • Same store total gross profit per unit increased 2.3% to $3,697

"First quarter results were driven by strength in January and February, with same store new, used, F&I and service, body and part sales up 4%, 22%, 18% and 6% respectively," said Bryan DeBoer, President and CEO. "These results continued through early March before being negatively impacted by varying levels of shelter in place policies enacted in most states due to COVID-19. Our decentralized operating structure has allowed our teams to respond independently to these differences with decisive actions aligned with their local market conditions."

Corporate Development

During the quarter, we acquired the two exclusive Lexus stores in Sacramento and Roseville, California, which are anticipated to generate $160 million in expected steady state annual revenues. We are working closely with our future acquisition partners to restructure transactions in order to preserve capital. In addition, we are also deferring closing until the second half of this year to gain greater insights into earnings quality and market conditions.

Balance Sheet Update

We ended the first quarter with over $550 million in cash and availability on our revolving lines of credit. Our unfinanced real estate could provide additional liquidity of approximately $500 million. In the current environment, we are actively managing our capital utilization to preserve cash through deferring approximately $65 million in capital expenditures, suspending share repurchases and restructuring acquisitions. Additionally, our $2.8 billion syndicated credit facility was renewed in December for five years with a maturity date of 2025 and we have no significant debt maturities until that time.

"We have the strongest balance sheet in our history, with the lowest leverage in our industry and liquidity to be strategically acquisitive and weather this period of uncertainty," said DeBoer. "In addition, we are more diversified than ever with a network covering 92% of our country and no single manufacturer making up more than 18% of our revenue."

Dividend Payment and Share Repurchases

Our Board of Directors approved maintaining our dividend of $0.30 per share. We expect to pay the dividend on May 22, 2020 to shareholders of record on May 8, 2020.

Year to date, we have repurchased 563,953 shares at a weighted average price of $81.71 per share under our existing share repurchase authorization. After accounting for these repurchases, approximately $188 million remains available. As previously announced, we have suspended all share repurchases until further notice.

Forward-Looking Statements

Certain statements in this presentation, and at times made by our officers and representatives, constitute forward-looking statements within the meaning of the "Safe Harbor" provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Generally, you can identify forward-looking statements by terms such as "project", "outlook", "target", "may", "will", "would", "should", "seek", "expect", "plan", "intend", "forecast", "anticipate", "believe", "estimate", "predict", "potential", "likely", "goal", "strategy", "future", "maintain", and "continue" or the negative of these terms or other comparable terms. Examples of forward-looking statements in this presentation include, among others, statements regarding:

  • Future market conditions, including anticipated car sales levels;
  • Anticipated impacts on consumer demand or governmental restrictions related to the COVID-19 pandemic or otherwise;
  • Expected level of business interruption due to shelter in place policies or lifting of those restrictions, and when volumes and consumer demand will return;
  • Continuation of our sales and services, including in-store appointments and home deliveries;
  • Expected operating results, such as improved store performance; continued improvement of selling, general and administrative expenses ("SG&A") as a percentage of gross profit and all projections;
  • Anticipated integration, success and growth of acquired stores;
  • Anticipated ability to capture additional market share;
  • Anticipated ability to find accretive acquisitions;
  • Expected revenues from acquired stores;
  • Anticipated synergies, ability to monetize our investment in digital innovation;
  • Anticipated additions of dealership locations to our portfolio in the future;
  • Anticipated financial condition and liquidity, including from our cash, availability on our credit facility and unfinanced real estate;
  • Anticipated use of proceeds from our financings;
  • Anticipated allocations, uses and levels of capital expenditures in the future;
  • Expectations regarding compliance with financial and restrictive covenants in our credit facility and other debt agreements; and
  • Our strategies for customer retention, growth, market position, financial results and risk management.

Because forward-looking statements relate to the future, they are subject to inherent uncertainties, risks and changes in circumstances that are difficult to predict and many of which are outside of our control. Forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance, and our actual results of operations, financial condition and liquidity and development of the industry in which we operate may differ materially from those made in or suggested by the forward-looking statements in this presentation. Therefore, you should not rely on any of these forward-looking statements. The risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from estimated or projected results include, without limitation:

  • Future economic and financial conditions (both nationally and locally), including as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic;
  • Changes in customer demand, our relationship with, and the financial and operational stability of, vehicle manufacturers and other suppliers;
  • Risks associated with our indebtedness (including available borrowing capacity, compliance with financial covenants and ability to refinance or repay indebtedness on favorable terms);
  • The adequacy of our cash flow and earnings and other conditions which may affect our ability to pay our quarterly dividend at the planned level;
  • Disruptions to our technology network including computer systems and software, as well as natural events such as severe weather, fires, floods and earthquakes or man-made or other disruptions of our operating systems, structures, facilities or equipment; and
  • Government regulations, legislation and others set forth throughout "Part II, Item 7. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations" and in "Part I, Item 1A. Risk Factors" of our most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K, Item 8.01 in our Form 8-K filed on April 13, 2020, and from time to time in our other filings with the SEC.

Any forward-looking statement made by us in this presentation is based only on information currently available to us and speaks only as of the date on which it is made. Except as required by law, we undertake no obligation to publicly update any forward-looking statement, whether written or oral, that may be made from time to time, whether as a result of new information, future developments or otherwise.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This presentation contains non-GAAP financial measures such as adjusted net income and diluted earnings per share, adjusted SG&A as a percentage of revenue and gross profit, adjusted operating margin, adjusted operating profit as a percentage of revenue and gross profit, adjusted pre-tax margin and net profit margin, EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, leveraged EBITDA and adjusted total debt. Non-GAAP measures do not have definitions under GAAP and may be defined differently by and not comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies. As a result, we review any non-GAAP financial measures in connection with a review of the most directly comparable measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. We caution you not to place undue reliance on such non-GAAP measures, but also to consider them with the most directly comparable GAAP measures. We present cash flows from operations in the attached tables, adjusted to include the change in non-trade floor plan debt to improve the visibility of cash flows related to vehicle financing. As required by SEC rules, we have reconciled these measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures in the attachments to this release. We believe the non-GAAP financial measures we present improve the transparency of our disclosures; provide a meaningful presentation of our results from core business operations, because they exclude items not related to core business operations and other non-cash items; and improve the period-to-period comparability of our results from core business operations. These presentations should not be considered an alternative to GAAP measures.
