Genuine Parts Company Reports Third Quarter 2021 Results

ATLANTA, Oct. 21, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Genuine Parts Company (NYSE: GPC) announced today its results for the third quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2021.

"We are pleased to report strong financial results in the third quarter, as the combination of our growth initiatives and the global market recovery drove positive sales trends, gross margin gains and improved operational efficiencies. Consistent execution of our strategic priorities also led to margin expansion and a second consecutive quarter of record earnings. The GPC team was largely able to manage through supply chain disruptions, allowing us to deliver quality customer service. In addition, we further improved our balance sheet and generated strong cash flow which allows for the ongoing deployment of capital for growth and productivity investments, bolt-on acquisitions, the dividend and share repurchases," said Paul Donahue, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Genuine Parts Company.

Third Quarter 2021 Results

Sales were $4.8 billion, a 10.3% increase compared to $4.4 billion in the same period of the prior year. The improvement is attributable to a 7.6% increase in comparable sales, a 1.8% benefit from acquisitions and a 0.9% net favorable impact of foreign currency and other.

Net income from continuing operations was $228.6 million, or a diluted earnings per share of $1.59. This compares to net income from continuing operations of $232.9 million, or $1.61 per diluted share in the prior year period. The Company's adjusted net income from continuing operations was $270.5 million, an increase of 14% as compared to $236.8 million a year ago. On a per share diluted basis, adjusted net income from continuing operations was $1.88, an increase of 15% compared to $1.63 per diluted share last year1.

"The positive momentum in our Automotive and Industrial operations is encouraging," Mr. Donahue said. "As expected, our Automotive sales comparisons normalized to the mid- to high-single digit range, with our U.S. Automotive business generating the strongest growth among our regional operations. Industrial posted very strong sales growth, generating mid-teen sales comps for the second consecutive quarter, as the industrial economy continues its steady rebound. We also produced our 16th consecutive quarter of gross margin expansion and took additional steps towards a more productive operating structure."

Third Quarter 2021 Segment Highlights

Automotive Parts Group

Sales for the Automotive Group were $3.2 billion in the third quarter, up 8.2% from 2020 and representing 66% of total Company revenues. The improvement was due to a 4.8% global increase in comparable sales, a 2.4% benefit from acquisitions and a 1.0% net favorable impact of foreign currency and other. Segment profit of $281.2 million was up 5.6% and the profit margin was 8.8% compared to 9.0% in the same period of 2020.

Industrial Parts Group

Sales for the Industrial Parts Group were $1.6 billion, up 14.5% from 2020 and representing 34% of total Company revenues.

The Company ended the quarter with $2.4 billion in total liquidity, consisting of $1.5 billion availability on the revolving credit facility and $919.1 million in cash and cash equivalents.

"Through nine months in 2021, we are pleased with our progress in driving profitable growth, strong cash flow and shareholder value. As we look ahead, the Company is well-positioned with the financial strength and flexibility to pursue strategic growth opportunities via investments in organic and acquisitive growth, while also returning capital to shareholders through the dividend and share repurchases. We are optimistic for the continued recovery in our Automotive and Industrial segments and improving fundamentals, and we are confident in our strategic plans to deliver long-term growth and margin expansion," Mr. Donahue said.

Non-GAAP Information

This release contains certain financial information not derived in accordance with United States ("U.S.") generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"). These items include adjusted net income from continuing operations, adjusted diluted net income from continuing operations per common share and free cash flow. The Company believes that the presentation of adjusted net income from continuing operations, adjusted diluted net income from continuing operations per common share and free cash flow, when considered together with the corresponding GAAP financial measures and the reconciliations to those measures, provide meaningful supplemental information to both management and investors that is indicative of the Company's core operations. The Company considers these metrics useful to investors because they provide greater transparency into management's view and assessment of the Company's ongoing operating performance by removing items management believes are not representative of our continuing operations and may distort our longer-term operating trends. We believe these measures are useful and enhance the comparability of our results from period to period and with our competitors, as well as show ongoing results from operations distinct from items that are infrequent or not associated with the Company's core operations. The Company does not, nor does it suggest investors should, consider such non-GAAP financial measures as superior to, in isolation from, or as a substitute for, GAAP financial information. The Company has included a reconciliation of this additional information to the most comparable GAAP measure following the financial statements below.

Comparable Sales

Comparable sales is a key metric that refers to period-over-period comparisons of our sales excluding the impact of acquisitions, foreign currency and other. The Company considers this metric useful to investors because it provides greater transparency into management's view and assessment of the Company's core ongoing operations. This is a metric that is widely used by analysts, investors and competitors in our industry, although our calculation of the metric may not be comparable to similar measures disclosed by other companies, because not all companies and analysts calculate this metric in the same manner.

Genuine Parts Company will hold a conference call today at 11:00 a.m. Eastern time to discuss the results of the quarter. A supplemental earnings deck will also be available for reference.
