COLMAR, Pa., May 01, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Dorman Products, Inc. (NASDAQ:DORM), a leading supplier in the automotive aftermarket, today announced its financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2018

1st Quarter Financial Results
The Company reported first quarter 2018 net sales of $227.3 million, up 3% compared to net sales of $221.6 million in the first quarter of 2017. Included in net sales were approximately $10 million of sales from MAS Automotive Distribution Inc. (MAS) which was acquired in October of 2017.

Net income for the first quarter of 2018 was $30.6 million, or $0.93 per diluted share compared to $29.2 million, or $0.85 per diluted share in the prior year quarter.  Adjusted net income in the current year first quarter was $31.7 million, or $0.96 per diluted share, up 13% compared to $29.4 million or $0.85 per diluted share in the prior year quarter.  Please refer to the Non-GAAP Financial Measures reported in the supplemental schedules.  We recorded income tax expense of $9.5 million in the first quarter, or 23.7% of income before income taxes down from $15.9 million, or 35.3% of income before income taxes recorded in the same quarter last year.  The reduction in tax rate is primarily a result of the recently enacted U.S. tax legislation known as the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. 

Matt Barton, Dorman Products President and Chief Executive Officer, stated: “Overall, year over year customer sell through (our customers' sales of Dorman product to end users) was up mid-single digits in the quarter signaling steadying end market conditions. However, we continued to feel customer inventory destocking pressure throughout the quarter.   From an orders perspective, order rates accelerated in the latter half of the quarter with March posting the strongest order rates of the quarter.  Also, we experienced a year over year sales decline for sales transacted over the internet, a result of brand protection pricing policy changes made in early Q4 of last year. 

Despite these short term headwinds, our business fundamentals remain strong.  We launched 1,600 new SKU’s in the quarter, a 24% increase over last year and our Dorman Heavy Duty Solutions lines experienced solid growth of 31% in the quarter.   The introduction of two new industry-leading programs – Air Suspension Systems and Loaded Steering Knuckles contributed to the growth of new SKU’s.  The integration of MAS continues to go well and is on plan.  In April, we combined our Dorman and the newly acquired MAS chassis programs with the introduction of the most comprehensive chassis offering in today’s aftermarket.  The program includes Dorman Premium Chassis for extended life maintenance-free driving, Premium RD, extreme-duty parts for fleets and our MAS line for value conscious customers.  We are extremely excited about the sales opportunity this presents Dorman Products and our valued channel partners.”

2018 Guidance
The Company re-iterated that its full year sales growth is estimated to be in the 6%-9% range for 2018, which includes the net sales contribution from MAS.    Fiscal 2018 EPS on a GAAP basis is expected to be in the $4.00 to $4.23 range.  Fiscal 2018 Adjusted EPS is expected to be in the $4.10 to $4.32 range or a 22% to 28% growth rate. 

Share Repurchases
Under its share repurchase program, Dorman repurchased 128.9 thousand shares of its common stock for $9.0 million at an average share price of $69.84 during the first quarter ended March 31, 2018. The Company has $67.7 million left under its current share repurchase authorization.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
(in thousands, except per-share amounts)

The Company’s financial results include certain financial measures not derived in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP).  Non-GAAP financial measures should not be used as a substitute for GAAP measures, or considered in isolation, for the purpose of analyzing our operating performance, financial position or cash flows.  Additionally, these non-GAAP measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies.  However, the Company has presented these non-GAAP financial measures because management believes this presentation, when reconciled to the corresponding GAAP measure, provides useful information to investors by offering additional ways of viewing the Company’s results, profitability trends, and underlying growth relative to prior and future periods and to our peers.  Non-GAAP financial measures may reflect adjustments for charges such as fair value adjustments, amortization, transaction costs, and other similar expenses related to acquisitions which the Company has determined are material as well as other items that are not related to the Company’s ongoing performance.

[ 1 ] – Pretax acquisition-related inventory fair value adjustments result from adjusting the value of acquired inventory from historical cost to fair value.  Such costs were $0.9 million pretax (or $0.7 million after tax) and were included in Cost of Goods Sold.

[ 2 ] – Pretax acquisition related intangible asset amortization results from allocating the purchase price of material acquisitions to the acquired tangible and intangible assets of the acquired business and recognizing the cost of the intangible asset over the period of benefit.  Exclusion of this amortization expense facilitates more consistent comparisons of operating results over time between our newly acquired and long-held businesses, and with both acquisitive and non-acquisitive peer companies.  We believe it is important for investors to understand that such intangible assets contribute to revenue generation and that intangible asset amortization related to past acquisitions will recur in future periods until such intangible assets have been fully amortized.  Such costs were $0.5 million pretax (or $0.4 million after tax) and were included in Selling, General and Administrative expenses.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
(in thousands, except per-share amounts)

[3] – Pretax acquisition related transaction costs include external costs incurred to complete and integrate a material acquisition as well as accretion expenses related to contingent consideration obligations.  Such costs were $0.1 million pretax (or $0.1 million after tax) and were included in Selling, General and Administrative expenses.

[4] – These adjustments represent the aggregate tax effect of all nontax adjustments reflected in the table above of $0.4 million.  Such items are estimated by applying the Company’s overall estimated tax rate to the pretax amount, or, by applying a specific tax rate if one is appropriate.  Also included in Provision for Income Taxes for the 13 weeks ended April 1, 2017 is a tax charge related to pre 2016 tax matters.
