ATLANTA, July 22, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Genuine Parts Company (NYSE: GPC) announced today its results for the second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2021.

"We are pleased to report a strong financial performance driven by the consistent execution of our strategic priorities and the ongoing recovery in the global markets. The second quarter was highlighted by strong sales trends, gross margin gains and improved operational efficiencies that drove margin expansion and record quarterly earnings. In addition, we effectively deployed capital for growth and productivity investments, bolt-on acquisitions, the dividend and share repurchases," said Paul Donahue, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Genuine Parts Company.

Second Quarter 2021 Results

Sales were $4.8 billion, a 25.1% increase compared to $3.8 billion in the same period of the prior year. The improvement is attributable to a 19.5% increase in comparable sales, a 4.1% net favorable impact of foreign currency and other and a 1.5% benefit from acquisitions.

Net income from continuing operations was $196.5 million, or a diluted earnings per share of $1.36. This compares to a net loss from continuing operations of $363.5 million, or $2.52 per diluted share in the prior year period. The Company's adjusted net income from continuing operations was $252.6 million, an increase of 33% as compared to $190.5 million a year ago. On a per share diluted basis, adjusted net income from continuing operations was $1.74, an increase of 32% compared to $1.32 per diluted share last year1.

"Our 25% total sales growth reflects the benefits of a strengthening global economy and positive sales environment in both our Automotive and Industrial businesses," Mr. Donahue said. "Automotive posted our strongest growth, with record sales and double-digit sales comps in each region of our operations. Industrial sales were also strong, highlighted by an accelerated recovery and its fourth consecutive quarter of improving sales trends. Our team also executed well and produced our 15th consecutive quarter of gross margin expansion while further improving our productivity via ongoing expense initiatives. Our global teamwork and disciplined focus in these areas enabled us to report strong operating results."

Non-GAAP Information

This release contains certain financial information not derived in accordance with United States ("U.S.") generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"). These items include adjusted net income from continuing operations, adjusted diluted net income from continuing operations per common share and free cash flow. The Company believes that the presentation of adjusted net income from continuing operations, adjusted diluted net income from continuing operations per common share and free cash flow, when considered together with the corresponding GAAP financial measures and the reconciliations to those measures, provide meaningful supplemental information to both management and investors that is indicative of the Company's core operations. The Company considers these metrics useful to investors because they provide greater transparency into management's view and assessment of the Company's ongoing operating performance by removing items management believes are not representative of our continuing operations and may distort our longer-term operating trends. We believe these measures are useful and enhance the comparability of our results from period to period and with our competitors, as well as show ongoing results from operations distinct from items that are infrequent or not associated with the Company's core operations. The Company does not, nor does it suggest investors should, consider such non-GAAP financial measures as superior to, in isolation from, or as a substitute for, GAAP financial information. The Company has included a reconciliation of this additional information to the most comparable GAAP measure following the financial statements below.

Comparable Sales

Comparable sales is a key metric that refers to period-over-period comparisons of our sales excluding the impact of acquisitions, foreign currency and other. The Company considers this metric useful to investors because it provides greater transparency into management's view and assessment of the Company's core ongoing operations. This is a metric that is widely used by analysts, investors and competitors in our industry, although our calculation of the metric may not be comparable to similar measures disclosed by other companies, because not all companies and analysts calculate this metric in the same manner.
