Lithia Motors Reports Adjusted Second Quarter 2011 Earnings of $0.54 per Share; Increases 2011 Outlook

Lithia Motors Declares $0.07 per Share Dividend for Second Quarter 2011

MEDFORD, OR--(Marketwire - Jul 27, 2011) - Lithia Motors, Inc. (NYSE: LAD) today reported 2011 adjusted second quarter net income from continuing operations of $14.6 million, or $0.54 per diluted share. This compares to a 2010 adjusted second quarter net income from continuing operations of $7.0 million, or $0.27 per diluted share. Second quarter 2011 revenue from continuing operations increased $158.9 million, or 30% to $689.1 million, compared to $530.2 million in the year-ago period.

Second Quarter Year-over-Year Operating Highlights:

  • New vehicle same store sales increased 24%
  • Used vehicle retail same store sales increased 16%
  • Service, body and parts same store sales increased 5%
  • Adjusted SG&A expense as a percentage of gross profit declined 560 basis points, to 71.4%

As shown in the attached non-GAAP reconciliation table, the 2011 second quarter adjusted results from continuing operations exclude a non-core benefit of $0.01 per share due to a tax item, and the 2010 second quarter adjusted results from continuing operations exclude a non-core charge of $0.33 per share on asset impairments and reserve adjustments. Unadjusted, net income (loss) from continuing operations for the second quarter of 2011 and 2010 was $14.8 million or $0.55 per diluted share and $(1.6) million or $(0.06) per diluted share, respectively.

"We had a better than expected quarter, with revenue up 30% year over year, and the highest second quarter earnings per share since 2006," said Sid DeBoer, Chairman and CEO of Lithia. "We continue to build on the momentum we have created over the past 24 months through our philosophy of continuous improvement."

For the first six months of 2011, revenue from continuing operations increased 31% to $1.3 billion as compared to $1.0 billion in 2010. Same store new vehicle sales increased 32%, used vehicle retail same store sales increased 17% and service, body and parts same store sales increased 7%. For the first six months of 2011 adjusted net income from continuing operations was $0.88 per share as compared to $0.36 per share in 2010. Unadjusted, for the first six months of 2011, net income from continuing operations was $0.87 per diluted share, compared to net loss from continuing operations of $(0.01) per diluted share for 2010.

Mr. DeBoer continued, "The outlook for the remainder of 2011 remains volatile. Gas prices have fluctuated over the past three months, unemployment remains high and the supply disruption that affected Japanese manufacturers will reduce vehicle availability through the third quarter. We anticipate new vehicle inventory will recover to normal levels by the first quarter of 2012."

Balance Sheet Update
Lithia ended the period with $61 million in immediately available funds, including $12 million in cash, $8 million in availability on its revolving credit facility, and $41 million in unfinanced new vehicle inventory.

Dividend Payment
Lithia announced that the Board of Directors has approved a dividend of $0.07 per share for the second quarter 2011. Lithia will pay the dividend August 25, 2011 to shareholders of record on August 11, 2011.

Updated Outlook for 2011
Lithia projects its 2011 third quarter earnings guidance within a range of $0.45 to $0.47 per diluted share. Full-year 2011 earnings guidance is projected within a range of $1.67 to $1.73 per diluted share. Both projections are based on the following annual assumptions:
