Summary

This is the second part of U.S. Auto Parts Network analysis.

Recent M&A activities hot up in the aftersales market.

U.S. Auto Parts Network provides an established online channel for pure bricks-and-mortar competitors.

The company trading at a fantastically cheap price for a buy-out.

Although with operation inefficiencies, in better hands, this could be a great acquisition target.

This is the second part of the analysis of U.S. Auto Parts Network Inc. (PRTS), it lays out a more speculative scenario where PRTS is proposed as a potential acquisition target. Please, read Part I for the background and fundamental analysis of the company.

PRTS as a potential acquisition target

Evaluating PRTS and the industry revealed to us that the company is, in fact, a great acquisition candidate. The main reasons are thanks to the highly active M&A activities in recent years, especially from a particular billionaire - Carl Icahn, and what PRTS can bring to the table. However, we need to remind investors that the opportunity that PRTS can be sold for a premium is purely speculative.

Recent M&A activities

As we have alluded to you in the first part of the analysis that even though new cars are coming in slower to the market, we must not forget that older cars are on the road for longer, and these owners are also spending more than ever to maximize the lifetime value of their vehicles. This rising demand for aftermarket parts and services is spurring new growth and revenue opportunities for a wide range of businesses operating in the automotive aftermarket industry.

The last few years saw many M&A activities. Most recently, Parts Authority, the US automotive and truck parts company agreed to acquire Interamerican Motor Corporation, a leader in European and Asian branded replacement parts, from AutoZone (NYSE:AZO) in February 2018. The deal allows Parts Authority to expand product offerings, customer touch points, and geographies.

      We are setting up this topic to share information on any impact the current COVID-19 virus has on the auto parts industry. Sourcing, distribution, parts availability, and business impact. General questions and sharing of knowledge are welcome.
      The WHO has designated this a global pandemic that is already affecting many industries, including most sectors in the automotive industry. Corporate and Independent automotive parts stores are being impacted by repair shop businesses slowing down. As you know, many parts come from China and other parts of the world, which are affected by the current pandemic.
      Please share how this is impacting you and what you are seeing.

      Who else is seeing industry shortages and inflation issues causing price and availability issues on auto parts? Manufacturers are short staff, supplies, and materials. Containers from China are backlogged and getting more expensive and add on top of that inflation, prices have and will continue to go up. 
      Chip shortages and user car prices going up, means more more for everything. New car prices are getting over sticker in some cases. Its all relative because even groceries are going up in price. Gas and oil prices as well.  🥵
