FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


O’REILLY AUTOMOTIVE, INC. REPORTS FIRST QUARTER 2022 RESULTS


First quarter comparable store sales growth of 4.8%, two-year stack increase of 29.6%
34.4% two-year compounded growth in first quarter diluted earnings per share
CFO transition plan announced

Springfield, MO, April 27, 2022O’Reilly Automotive, Inc. (the “Company” or “O’Reilly”) (Nasdaq:  ORLY), a leading retailer in the automotive aftermarket industry, today announced record revenue for its first quarter ended March 31, 2022, and announced the transition plan for Tom McFall, Executive Vice President and CFO.

1st Quarter Financial Results

Greg Johnson, O’Reilly’s President and CEO, commented, “We are pleased to report another profitable quarter, highlighted by a 4.8% increase in comparable store sales, which is on top of the record 24.8% comparable store sales growth we delivered in the first quarter last year, resulting in an incredible comparable store sales two-year stacked increase of 29.6%.  Historically, our first quarter can be volatile, as we see weather impacts from winter conditions early in the quarter and the timing of the onset of spring at the end.  This year was no exception, and we saw choppiness in our business that coincided with inclement weather at the beginning of our quarter and the slow start to spring, along with other macroeconomic pressures.  However, we continue to be pleased with the core, underlying strength of our business and our solid first quarter comparable store sales results, which, on top of last year’s performance, are clear indicators of our Team’s ability to grow our business and take market share.  During the quarter, we launched our professional pricing initiative, which created the expected pressure on gross profit, and our Teams continue to effectively manage the ongoing inflationary cost pressures.  I would like to thank each of our over 84,000 Team Members in the U.S. and Mexico for their relentless focus on providing unsurpassed levels of customer service, and their ongoing efforts continue to drive profitable growth.”

Sales for the first quarter ended March 31, 2022, increased $205 million, or 7%, to $3.30 billion from $3.09 billion for the same period one year ago.  Gross profit for the first quarter increased 4% to $1.71 billion (or 51.8% of sales) from $1.64 billion (or 53.1% of sales) for the same period one year ago.  Selling, general and administrative expenses (“SG&A”) for the first quarter increased 9% to $1.04 billion (or 31.5% of sales) from $950 million (or 30.7% of sales) for the same period one year ago.  Operating income for the first quarter decreased 3% to $670 million (or 20.3% of sales) from $691 million (or 22.4% of sales) for the same period one year ago.

Net income for the first quarter ended March 31, 2022, decreased $20 million, or 4%, to $482 million (or 14.6% of sales) from $502 million (or 16.2% of sales) for the same period one year ago.  Diluted earnings per common share for the first quarter increased 2% to $7.17 on 67 million shares versus $7.06 on 71 million shares for the same period one year ago.

1st Quarter Comparable Store Sales Results

Comparable store sales are calculated based on the change in sales for U.S. stores open at least one year and exclude sales of specialty machinery, sales to independent parts stores and sales to Team Members.  Online sales for ship-to-home orders and pick-up-in-store orders for U.S. stores open at least one year are included in the comparable store sales calculation.  Comparable store sales increased 4.8% for the first quarter ended March 31, 2022, on top of 24.8% for the same period one year ago.    


Share Repurchase Program

During the first quarter ended March 31, 2022, the Company repurchased 1.2 million shares of its common stock, at an average price per share of $664.15, for a total investment of $775 million.  Subsequent to the end of the first quarter and through the date of this release, the Company repurchased an additional 0.2 million shares of its common stock, at an average price per share of $694.70, for a total investment of $106 million.  The Company has repurchased a total of 86.9 million shares of its common stock under its share repurchase program since the inception of the program in January of 2011 and through the date of this release, at an average price of $202.88, for a total aggregate investment of $17.63 billion.  As of the date of this release, the Company had approximately $1.12 billion remaining under its current share repurchase authorization.

Executive Leadership Transition

Effective May 9, 2022, Tom McFall, O’Reilly’s Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, will step down as Chief Financial Officer and continue his employment with the Company in the role of Executive Vice President, and at that time, Jeremy Fletcher, O’Reilly’s Senior Vice President of Finance and Controller, will be promoted to the position of Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer.

“After 16 years of dedicated service, Tom has communicated his desire to transition into a different role with the Company,” Mr. Johnson stated.  “Tom has provided exceptional leadership to our Company since joining Team O’Reilly in 2006, and we are pleased he will continue to provide valuable guidance and mentorship as he shifts to this new role.  Tom will retain his existing responsibilities in the areas of Information Technology, Real Estate, Legal and Risk Management, and will continue to provide key strategic and executive leadership.  Succession planning has always been an important component of our Culture, and Tom has done an extraordinary job preparing Jeremy for his new role.”

Mr. McFall commented, “It has been a privilege to have been a part of our success over the past 16 years, and I am very excited to continue my career with O’Reilly in a different role.  Our consistent and profitable growth is the result of our Team working together and continually striving for the next level of success.  During my entire tenure as CFO, Jeremy and I have worked very closely together, and he has been a trusted partner and advisor.  I am highly confident in his ability to


successfully transition into his new role and, along with our long-tenured executive management team, build on the Company’s impressive record of 29 consecutive years of comparable stores sales growth and record operating income.”

About Jeremy Fletcher

Mr. Fletcher, age 45, has been an O’Reilly Team Member for 16 years.  Upon joining the Company in 2005, Mr. Fletcher served as Financial Reporting and Budgeting Manager and progressed through the roles of Director of Finance, Vice President of Finance and Controller and has served in his current role as Senior Vice President of Finance and Controller for over five years.  Prior to joining O’Reilly, Mr. Fletcher worked as a Certified Public Accountant in public practice and in a financial reporting and planning role for a Fortune 1000 corporation.  In his new role as Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, Mr. Fletcher will assume full responsibility for all Finance, Accounting and Treasury functions for the Company.

Non-GAAP Information

This release contains certain financial information not derived in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”).  These items include adjusted debt to earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, share-based compensation and rent (“EBITDAR”) and free cash flow.  The Company does not, nor does it suggest investors should, consider such non-GAAP financial measures in isolation from, or as a substitute for, GAAP financial information.  The Company believes that the presentation of adjusted debt to EBITDAR and free cash flow provide meaningful supplemental information to both management and investors that is indicative of the Company’s core operations.  The Company has included a reconciliation of this additional information to the most comparable GAAP measure in the table above and the selected financial information below.
