Advance Auto Parts Q2 profit rises 6% but misses estimates

Advance Auto Parts (NYSE: AAP) reported a 6% growth in earnings for the second quarter helped by lower costs and expenses. However, the results missed analysts’ expectations. Further, the automotive aftermarket parts provider narrowed its net sales and comparable store sales guidance for the full year 2019.

Net income rose by 6% to $124.82 million or $1.73 per share. Adjusted earnings increased by 2% to $2.00 per share. Net sales moved up by 0.2% to $2.33 billion. Comparable store sales were flat for the second quarter of 2019.

Looking ahead into the full year 2019, the company narrowed its net sales outlook to the range of $9.65 billion to $9.75 billion from the prior range of $9.65 billion to $9.80 billion, and its comparable-store sales estimates to the range of 1% to 2% from the previous range of 1% to 2.5%. Adjusted operating income margin guidance is narrowed to the range of 8% to 8.2% from the prior range of 8% to 8.4%.

Advance Auto Parts Q2 profit rises 6% but misses estimates

Capital expenditures are still anticipated to be in the range of $250 million to $300 million. Free cash flow is now expected to be at the minimum of $700 million compared to the previous estimates of a minimum of $650 million.

The company is expected to deliver meaningful progress against its transformation plan in 2019. In addition, Advance Auto Parts expects to deliver sales growth and margin expansion in the back half of the year, resulting in second consecutive year of top and bottom line growth.

For the second quarter, adjusted gross margin declined by 42 basis points to 43.3% due to channel and product mix, in addition to planned supply chain wage investments. These headwinds were partially offset by continued improvements in utilization and management of inventory. Increased material costs due to both inflation and tariff related costs were fully offset by pricing actions in the quarter.

On August 7, the board of directors authorized a $400 million share repurchase program, which replaced the balance portion of its $600 million share repurchase program that was authorized in August 2018. The company’s board declared a regular quarterly cash dividend of $0.06 per share, payable on October 4, 2019 to all common shareholders of record as of September 20, 2019.
