  7. 4th quarter comparable store sales increase of 1.3%, full-year increase of 1.4% 36% increase in 4th quarter diluted EPS to $3.52, includes a $0.62 benefit from revaluation of deferred income tax liabilities Announces Executive Leadership Succession Plan Springfield, MO, February 7, 2018 – O’Reilly Automotive, Inc. (the “Company” or “O’Reilly”) (Nasdaq: ORLY), a leading retailer in the automotive aftermarket industry, today announced record revenues and earnings for its fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2017. The results represent 25 consecutive years of comparable store sales growth and record revenue and operating income for O’Reilly since becoming a public company in April of 1993. 4th Quarter Financial Results Greg Henslee, O’Reilly’s CEO commented, “We generated comparable store sales of 1.3% for the fourth quarter, as we faced tough comparisons from a very favorable demand environment in the prior year, as well as calendar headwinds. As we discussed on our third quarter earnings call, December of 2016 was a very strong month, driven by extreme winter weather across the country. We also faced unfavorable calendar shifts in the fourth quarter of 2017, due to the timing of the Christmas holiday, which fell on a Monday in 2017 versus a Sunday in 2016, and one additional Sunday during the fourth quarter of 2017. Sunday represents our lowest volume day, and these combined calendar shifts resulted in a 70 basis point headwind to our fourth quarter 2017 comparable store sales results. Despite these challenges, Team O’Reilly’s hard work and dedication to providing unsurpassed levels of customer service drove our comparable store sales results above the mid-point of our guidance range, and I would like to thank all of our Team Members for their unwavering commitment to our long-term success.” Sales for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2017, increased $92 million, or 4%, to $2.19 billion from $2.10 billion for the same period one year ago. Gross profit for the fourth quarter increased to $1.16 billion (or 52.9% of sales) from $1.11 billion (or 53.1% of sales) for the same period one year ago, representing an increase of 4%. Selling, general and administrative expenses (“SG&A”) for the fourth quarter increased to $756 million (or 34.5% of sales) from $707 million (or 33.7% of sales) for the same period one year ago, representing an increase of 7%. Operating income for the fourth quarter decreased to $403 million (or 18.4% of sales) from $408 million (or 19.4% of sales) for the same period one year ago, representing a decrease of 1%. Net income for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2017, increased $56 million, or 23%, to $302 million (or 13.8% of sales) from $246 million (or 11.7% of sales) for the same period one year ago. Diluted earnings per common share for the fourth quarter increased 36% to $3.52 on 86 million shares versus $2.59 on 95 million shares for the same period one year ago. The U.S. Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, enacted in December 2017, significantly reduced the federal corporate income tax rate, and required the Company to revalue its deferred income tax liabilities based on the lower enacted federal corporate income tax rate. The Company’s Net Income for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2017, includes a one-time $53 million benefit related to the revaluation of its deferred income tax liabilities, and the Company’s diluted earnings per common share of $3.52 for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2017, also includes a one-time $0.62 benefit from the revaluation. The Company adopted a required new share-based compensation accounting standard during the first quarter of 2017, which requires excess tax benefits from share-based compensation payments to be recorded in the income statement. The Company’s diluted earnings per common share of $3.52 for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2017, includes a $0.15 benefit from the adoption of the new accounting standard.

  11. The Mighty Auto Parts franchise brand has been named one of the top 50 franchises for 2018 by Franchise Business Review. Mighty Auto Parts is the franchise network of Mighty Distributing System of America Inc., which is based in Norcross, Ga. Franchise Business Review surveyed franchisees on 33 benchmark questions focusing on critical areas of their franchise systems. Topics ranged from training and support to operations, to franchisor/franchisee relations, and financial opportunity. Mighty was one of 307 franchise brands participating, representing over 28,000 franchise owners across North America, according to Mighty Distributing System. "There are thousands of successful franchise companies operating in North America, but many of those companies do not offer a solid investment opportunity for the actual franchise owners," says Eric Stites, CEO of Franchise Business Review. "As an independent research firm, we rate the franchise companies in the marketplace today and identify those that have the highest levels of satisfaction and performance among their franchisees in order to help entrepreneurs when choosing which franchise to invest in. The companies on this year's list are the top performing brands in the areas critical to their franchisees' success." Mighty Distributing System is a Georgia-based franchisor with a network of distributors that provide inventory management solutions and preventive maintenance products to automotive service providers, including tire dealers, quick lubes, independent shops, car dealerships, and fleets. The company says its continued franchise growth includes recruiting high-quality entrepreneurs as well as forming strategic partnerships with prominent automotive service companies. Mighty franchises provide owners a way to improve operational efficiency and diversify their current business portfolio. Ken Voelker, Mighty Distributing System's president and CEO, says, "As a full-service franchisor, Mighty provides its franchisees with a suite of products and services designed to help them be successful. Mighty's business model of licensing exclusive territories, providing leading-edge training, and helping franchisees monitor and improve financial performance has been a successful formula for over five decades. It is gratifying to see the research by Franchise Business Review validates our commitments to franchisee satisfaction and positive franchisor-franchisee relations." This is the 13th annual ranking of the top 200 award-winning franchise opportunities by Franchise Business Review, a franchise market research firm that performs independent surveys of franchisee satisfaction. Franchise Business Review publishes its rankings in its annual Guide to Today's Top Franchises. Mighty Distributing System supports 109 U.S. distributors in 44 states and four international markets.

  12. The online market for after-market car parts, by some estimates expected to top $10 billion in the next few years, represents an interesting opportunity both for established retailers that could grab market share as consumers move online—and companies like Amazon, that will look to grab those same shoppers. Investors have been sensitive to the threat Amazon presents for a while now. Early last year, when news broke that the company was targeting the market, sector stocks took a tumble. Is it useless to resist the oncoming behemoth? Perhaps not. In a Friday report, Raymond James analysts reviewed some of the major players’ sites, comparing those of Advance Auto Parts, AutoZone, O’Reilly Auto Parts, Amazon and privately-owned RockAuto. By their measures, Advance holds up best. ILLUSTRATION: RAYMOND JAMES “Advance’s and O’Reilly’s websites offer a slightly more attractive alternative to Amazon’s,” the analysts wrote, “particularly for DIY customers that are either 1) looking for useful browsing features, 2) seeking information on parts, or 3) wanting to buy online and pick up in store.” More generally, investors seem to like the business. Earlier this month, Credit Suisse predicted improved sales in 2018 and a boost from tax reform. And on Friday, JPMorgan called it “one of the best sectors in retail,” adding Advance to its “Focus List” with a $138 price target on the shares, about 12% above current levels.

  15. The e-commerce automotive aftermarket is expected to cross $30 billion USD by 2025, according to a new research report by Global Market Insights Inc. The global e-commerce automotive aftermarket is expected to generate a demand of more than 1 billion units till 2025. Increasing age of vehicles across the globe, specifically in developed countries coupled with shifting consumer preference towards online purchase of auto components will primarily drive the industry growth over the forecast timeframe. Changing style preferences of consumers and increasing customizations in vehicles will further strengthen the industry penetration. Steering and suspension is anticipated to dominate the e-commerce automotive aftermarket share over the forecast timeframe. This can be credited to rising demand of components such as control arms, coil springs and bearings. Availability of numerous options at reasonable price and choice will positively impact the product demand. Spark plugs are expected to exhibit more than 21 percent CAGR till 2025 owing to recommendation of vehicle manufacturers for product replacement after every 30,000 miles. Increased accident rates along with cheaper product availability as compared to its counterparts will further propel the segment’s growth. Online platforms have gained prominence among the automotive aftermarket industry players to launch their auto-parts portfolio. The manufacturers are increasingly launching their products on online platforms through third party retailers, such as Amazon and eBay, or via their own online portals, positively impacting the industry growth. However, lack of efficient standardization for e-commerce businesses may lead to easy counterfeiting of products, posing a threat to the industry growth over the forecast timeframe. Rising production of electric and hybrid vehicles across the globe has resulted in increased complexity of the intricate parts. This has led to increased production of automotive aftermarket parts owing to proliferating DIFM customers. The e-commerce automotive aftermarket players are forced to expand their portfolio, to cater to the rising demand, inducing immense potential to the industry size till 2025. Third party retailers are likely to account for highest revenue share crossing $29 billion USD by 2025. Rising popularity of these retailers such as eBay and Amazon will primarily drive the industry growth. High revenue generation also can be attributed to the distinct services. Moreover, provision of benefits such as same day delivery will further strengthen the e-commerce automotive aftermarket penetration. Direct to customer will exhibit approximately 21 percent CAGR from 2018 to 2025. This can be attributed to high brand loyalty of the customers and provision of appropriate service facilities. The automotive aftermarket players such as Bosch are expanding their online platforms to enhance their visibility among the customers. B2C will account for maximum revenue share crossing $13 billion USD over the forecast timeline. Shifting preference of customers towards online purchase of these auto parts will primarily support the industry dominance. This can be attributed to the cost effectiveness of the online portals as compared to conventional stores. Fast query solving, and provision of technologically advanced products will further escalate the revenue generation. B to big B will exhibit more than 19 percent CAGR owing to provision of benefits such as fast delivery services. North America e-commerce automotive aftermarket size is anticipated to exhibit a CAGR of approximately 17 percent by 2025. Well-established internet infrastructure will pave stable growth prospects to the region’s growth. Presence of prominent e-commerce leaders such as Amazon will strengthen the industry growth over the coming years. Asia Pacific is likely to exhibit considerable share of more than $9 billion USD over the coming years. The substantial revenue generation can be attributed to growth in automobile industry along with rising internet penetration across the region. Napa Auto Parts, DENSO Corp., Amazon, eBay, Auto Zone and Advance Auto Parts are among the prominent participants in e-commerce automotive aftermarket. Partnerships and collaborations with online aftermarket players are among the strategies adopted by the industry players to enhance their visibility. For instance, in 2016, Hella Group collaborated with online auto-parts supplier, iParts.pl in order to expand its product line.
