Group 1 Automotive Announces Record First Quarter 2022 Financial Results

  • Record Quarterly Diluted Earnings Per Common Share from Continuing Operations; $11.78 per share
  • Record Net Income from Continuing Operations; $201.1 million or 99.3% Increase

HOUSTON, April 27, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Group 1 Automotive, Inc. (NYSE: GPI) ("Group 1" or the "Company"), an international, Fortune 300 automotive retailer with 202 dealerships located in the U.S. and U.K., today reported record first quarter 2022 financial results.

Current Quarter Results Overview — Continuing and Discontinued Operations

First quarter 2022 ("current quarter") net income was $202.9 million. Current quarter adjusted net income (a non-GAAP measure) was $186.4 million.

Current quarter diluted earnings per common share was $11.88. Current quarter adjusted diluted earnings per common share (a non-GAAP measure) was $10.92

"Our record profit performance this quarter was the result of continued strong consumer demand and outstanding operational performance across all business segments in the U.S. and U.K. Our 2021 acquisitions, especially the Prime Auto Group, performed far above our expectations in the first quarter and our U.K. operations achieved an all-time profit record. Service growth and cost leverage were noteworthy in both the U.S. and U.K. with U.S. service growth of 18.6% over last year on a same store basis and consolidated adjusted SG&A down 381 bps over last year. We expect our strong vehicle sales margins to continue this year in both markets as new vehicle supply is expected to remain constrained for the remainder of this year," said Earl J. Hesterberg, Group 1's President and Chief Executive Officer. 

Reconciliations for financial results, non-GAAP metrics, and diluted earnings per common share between continuing and discontinued operations are included in the accompanying financial tables. 

Current Quarter Results Overview — Continuing Operations

Current quarter total revenues were an all-time record of $3.8 billion, a 30.1% increase compared to total revenues of $3.0 billion for the first quarter of 2021 ("prior year quarter"). 

Current quarter net income from continuing operations was an all-time record of $201.1 million, a 99.3% increase compared to net income from continuing operations of $100.9 million for the prior year quarter. Current quarter adjusted net income from continuing operations (a non-GAAP measure) was $184.6 million, an 81.6% increase compared to adjusted net income from continuing operations of $101.7 million for the prior year quarter.

Current quarter diluted earnings per common share from continuing operations was an all-time record of $11.78, a 115.3% increase over diluted earnings per common share from continuing operations of $5.47 for the prior year quarter. Current quarter adjusted diluted earnings per common share from continuing operations (a non-GAAP measure) was also an all-time record of $10.81, a 96.2% increase over adjusted diluted earnings per common share from continuing operations of $5.51 for the prior year quarter.

Corporate Development

In March 2022, the Company acquired Toyota of North Austin, which is ranked in the top 20 nationally in Toyota new vehicle volume. The dealership is expected to generate $435.0 million in annualized revenues. In April 2022, the Company acquired a Toyota dealership in New Mexico, which is expected to generate $115.0 million in annualized revenues, bringing year-to-date total acquired expected revenues for the Company to $550.0 million.

"The acquisition of these two large Toyota dealerships in growing markets where we already operate is a major growth opportunity for our U.S. operations. We can integrate and leverage these new businesses immediately," said Daryl A. Kenningham, Group 1's President of U.S. Operations.

In February 2022, the Company disposed of one Honda and one Toyota dealership in the New England area. These stores generated approximately $125.0 million in annualized revenues. 

The Company also announced the pending sale of its Brazilian operations in November 2021. This sale is expected to close in the second quarter of 2022. 

Share Repurchase

During the current quarter, the Company repurchased 638,696 shares, representing approximately 4.0% of the Company's current quarter beginning outstanding common shares, at an average price per common share of $180.30, for a total of $115.2 million. The Company has $103.3 million remaining on its Board authorized common share repurchase program. As of March 31, 2022, the Company had an aggregate 16.7 million outstanding common shares and unvested restricted stock awards. Future repurchases may be made from time to time, based on market conditions, legal requirements, and other corporate considerations, in the open market or in privately negotiated transactions, and subject to Board approval and covenant restrictions.

FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

This press release contains "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, which are statements related to future, not past, events and are based on our current expectations and assumptions regarding our business, the economy and other future conditions. In this context, the forward-looking statements often include statements regarding our strategic investments, goals, plans, projections and guidance regarding our financial position, results of operations and business strategy, and often contain words such as "expects," "anticipates," "intends," "plans," "believes," "seeks," "should," "foresee," "may" or "will" and similar expressions. While management believes that these forward-looking statements are reasonable as and when made, there can be no assurance that future developments affecting us will be those that we anticipate. Any such forward-looking statements are not assurances of future performance and involve risks and uncertainties that may cause actual results to differ materially from those set forth in the statements. These risks and uncertainties include, among other things, (a) general economic and business conditions, (b) the level of manufacturer incentives, (c) the future regulatory environment, (d) our ability to obtain an inventory of desirable new and used vehicles, (e) our relationship with our automobile manufacturers and the willingness of manufacturers to approve future acquisitions, (f) our cost of financing and the availability of credit for consumers, (g) our ability to complete acquisitions and dispositions and the risks associated therewith, (h) foreign exchange controls and currency fluctuations, (i) the impacts of COVID-19 on our business, (j) the impacts of any potential global recession, (k) our ability to maintain sufficient liquidity to operate, (l) the risk that proposed transactions will not be consummated in a timely manner, (m) our ability to successfully integrate recent and future acquisitions, and (n) the impacts on our business resulting from Russia's military action in Ukraine and the imposition of sanctions on Russia. For additional information regarding known material factors that could cause our actual results to differ from our projected results, please see our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including our Annual Report on Form 10-K, Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q and Current Reports on Form 8-K. Readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date hereof. We undertake no obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements after the date they are made, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES, SAME STORE DATA, AND OTHER DATA

In addition to evaluating the financial condition and results of our operations in accordance with U.S. GAAP, from time to time our management evaluates and analyzes results and any impact on the Company of strategic decisions and actions relating to, among other things, cost reduction, growth, profitability improvement initiatives, and other events outside of normal, or "core," business and operations, by considering alternative financial measures not prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. In our evaluation of results from time to time, we exclude items that do not arise directly from core operations, such as non-cash asset impairment charges, out-of-period adjustments, legal matters, gains and losses on dealership franchise or real estate transactions, and catastrophic events, such as hailstorms, hurricanes, and snow storms. Because these non-core charges and gains materially affect the Company's financial condition or results in the specific period in which they are recognized, management also evaluates, and makes resource allocation and performance evaluation decisions based on, the related non-GAAP measures excluding such items. This includes evaluating measures such as adjusted selling, general and administrative expenses, adjusted net income, adjusted diluted earnings per share, and constant currency. These adjusted measures are not measures of financial performance under U.S. GAAP, but are instead considered non-GAAP financial performance measures. Non-GAAP measures do not have definitions under U.S. GAAP and may be defined differently by, and not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by, other companies. As a result, any non-GAAP financial measures considered and evaluated by management are reviewed in conjunction with a review of the most directly comparable measures calculated in accordance with U.S. GAAP. We caution investors not to place undue reliance on such non-GAAP measures, but also to consider them with the most directly comparable U.S. GAAP measures.

In addition to using such non-GAAP measures to evaluate results in a specific period, management believes that such measures may provide more complete and consistent comparisons of operational performance on a period-over-period historical basis and a better indication of expected future trends. Our management also uses these adjusted measures in conjunction with U.S. GAAP financial measures to assess our business, including communication with our Board of Directors, investors, and industry analysts concerning financial performance. We disclose these non-GAAP measures, and the related reconciliations, because we believe investors use these metrics in evaluating longer-term period-over-period performance, and to allow investors to better understand and evaluate the information used by management to assess operating performance. The exclusion of certain expenses in the calculation of non-GAAP financial measures should not be construed as an inference that these costs are unusual or infrequent. We anticipate excluding these expenses in the future presentation of our non-GAAP financial measures.

In addition, we evaluate our results of operations on both an as reported and a constant currency basis. The constant currency presentation, which is a non-GAAP measure, excludes the impact of fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates. We believe providing constant currency information provides valuable supplemental information regarding our underlying business and results of operations, consistent with how we evaluate our performance. We calculate constant currency percentages by converting our current period reported results for entities reporting in currencies other than U.S. dollars using comparative period exchange rates rather than the actual exchange rates in effect during the respective periods. The constant currency performance measures should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, the measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. The Same Store amounts presented include the results of dealerships for the identical months in each period presented in comparison, commencing with the first full month in which the dealership was owned by us and, in the case of dispositions, ending with the last full month it was owned by us. Same Store results also include the activities of our corporate headquarters.

Certain amounts in the financial statements may not compute due to rounding.  All computations have been calculated using unrounded amounts for all periods presented.
