BLOOMFIELD HILLS, Mich., Feb. 10, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Penske Automotive Group, Inc. (NYSE: PAG), a diversified international transportation services company, today announced fourth quarter and full year 2020 results. For the three months ended December 31, 2020, the company reported a 97% increase in income from continuing operations attributable to common shareholders to $200.1 million, and a 99% increase in related earnings per share to $2.49. This compares to income from continuing operations attributable to common shareholders of $101.6 million, or $1.25 per share in the prior year. Fourth quarter income from continuing operations and related earnings per share include a net benefit of $0.2 million, related to a gain on dealership sales, partially offset by a loss on debt extinguishment and U.S. and foreign tax legislation changes. Excluding this net benefit, adjusted income from continuing operations increased 96.8% to $199.9 million, and related earnings per share increased 99.2% to $2.49. Foreign exchange positively impacted earnings per share by $0.02. Revenue was $5.8 billion compared to $5.9 billion in the same period last year.

Commenting on the company's results, Chairman Roger Penske said, "I am very pleased to report 97% earnings growth for the fourth quarter. Our results were driven by same-store retail automotive margin expansion, growth in our commercial truck dealership profitability, and continued strong performance from Penske Transportation Solutions. Coupled with the benefit from expense reductions, adjusted selling, general, and administrative expenses as a percentage of gross profit declined 800 basis-points. Additionally, in 2020 our business generated $708 million in earnings before taxes, an all-time record. Our strong cash flow during the year provided us with the opportunity to paydown $670 million of non-vehicle long-term debt and reduce our debt to total capitalization to 34% from 46%."

For the twelve months ended December 31, 2020, the company reported income from continuing operations attributable to common shareholders of $543.2 million, or $6.74 per share, compared to $435.5 million, or $5.28 per share in the prior year. Foreign exchange positively impacted earnings per share by $0.03. Revenue was $20.4 billion compared to $23.2 billion in the same period last year. For the twelve months ended December 31, 2020, income from continuing operations and related earnings per share include a net benefit of $8.3 million, or $0.10 per share, from an income tax benefit related to various U.S. and foreign tax legislation changes and a gain on dealership sales, partially offset by a loss on debt extinguishment. Excluding this net benefit, adjusted income from continuing operations increased 22.8% to $534.9 million, and related earnings per share increased 25.8% to $6.64.

Operational Highlights – Fourth Quarter 2020

  • Retail automotive same-store revenue increased 0.6%
  • Retail automotive same-store gross profit increased 5.7%
  • Retail automotive earnings before taxes increased 126.5%
  • Retail automotive same-store variable gross profit per unit retailed increased 24.5%
  • Total gross margin increased 80 basis points to 15.5%
  • Adjusted SG&A expenses declined $46.6 million and SG&A as a percentage of gross profit declined 800 basis points to 71.1%

Long-Term DebtDuring 2020, we reduced our long-term debt by $670 million. We repaid in full, at scheduled maturity, our $300 million 3.75% senior subordinated notes and redeemed our $300 million 5.375% senior subordinated notes due in 2024. We also redeemed our $550 million 5.75% senior subordinated notes due 2022 with the proceeds of the newly issued $550 million in aggregate principal amount 3.50% senior subordinated notes due 2025. We expect the payoff and refinancing of these notes will generate annualized interest expense savings of approximately $27 million. As of December 31, 2020, non-vehicle long-term debt to total capitalization was reduced to 34% from 46% at the end of the prior year.

Used Vehicle SuperCentersPenske Automotive Group opened a greenfield used vehicle SuperCenter site in Nottingham, U.K. during the fourth quarter and now operates seventeen Used Vehicle SuperCenters. For the three months ended December 31, 2020, same-store variable gross profit per unit retailed increased 20.4% to $2,351. Retail unit sales decreased by 22.6% to 11,923 while revenue decreased by 16.4% to $244.7 million largely as a result of COVID-related government-mandated closures in the U.K. For the twelve months ended December 31, 2020, SuperCenter retail unit sales decreased by 25.0% to 53,207 and revenue decreased by 17.0% to $1.0 billion.

Retail Commercial Truck Dealerships Penske Automotive Group operates twenty-five medium and heavy-duty truck dealership locations in the U.S. and Canada offering primarily Freightliner and Western Star brands. For the three months ended December 31, 2020, earnings before taxes were $26.5 million compared to $21.0 million in the same period last year. During the quarter, total units retailed increased 16.0%, including a 1% increase in new units and a 106% increase in used units. For the twelve months ended December 31, 2020, earnings before taxes were $78.2 million compared to $86.5 million in the same period last year.

Penske Transportation SolutionsPenske Transportation Solutions ("PTS") is a leading provider of full-service truck leasing, truck rental, contract maintenance, and logistics services and is an integral part of the North American supply chain, providing supply chain and transportation services to its customers. The company has a 28.9% ownership interest in the PTS partnership and accounts for its ownership interest using the equity method of accounting. In addition to equity income, the company receives cash distributions and may recognize cash tax benefits from time to time. For the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2020, the company recorded $56.5 million and $164.5 million in earnings compared to $36.4 million and $142.4 million for the same period last year. The 55.2% increase in the fourth quarter was principally driven by improved operating results in full-service leasing and logistics and a reduction in operating expenses.

Growth and ExpansionCurrently, we are constructing new franchised dealerships and have identified acquisition targets which are expected to add $600 million in estimated annualized revenue. Specifically, in January, we opened our second Porsche dealership in the Washington D.C. market that is expected to generate $50 million in annualized revenue. We also have an Audi dealership under construction in Southern California and a Honda dealership under construction in Texas. Both are expected to open by the end of the year and collectively generate approximately $100 million in annualized revenue.

During the fourth quarter we opened one used vehicle SuperCenter in Nottingham, U.K. As we look out across the next three years, our goal is to grow the used SuperCenter operations from 17 locations to 40 by the end of 2023. We expect our used SuperCenters operations will generate at least 150,000 in unit sales and $2.5 to $3.0 billion in total revenue, more than doubling the size of the existing business while generating earnings before taxes of approximately $100 million. 

Dividend and Share RepurchasesOn January 26, 2021, we announced an increase in the quarterly dividend to $0.43 per share, payable on March 1, 2021 to shareholders of record as of February 10, 2021.

For the twelve months ended December 31, 2020, the company repurchased 1,027,736 shares for $34.4 million. Approximately $170.6 million remains available to repurchase shares under the company's existing share repurchase authorization.
