Management Commentary

"We began to execute on our new operating plan during the second quarter, which led to sequential improvements in gross profit, gross margin and adjusted EBITDA," said Lev Peker, CEO of U.S. Auto Parts. "In fact, this was our strongest quarter of gross margin since Q1 2018, reflecting our renewed focus on private label sales. In just over six months at the company, we have rebuilt and strengthened our team with key personnel, further consolidated our websites, and are now in the process of realigning our inventory and cost structure to better match our new directives.

"Last week, our new 125,000 square foot distribution center (DC) went live in Las Vegas, Nevada, approximately one month ahead of schedule. This is now our third DC, which will enable us to provide two-day delivery or less to 94% of the country while realizing savings in freight costs.

"As we look ahead, we will continue building out our team within merchandising, engineering, planning and operations. We believe we have a good handle on margins and are now turning our focus to operating expenses, where we expect to make significant reductions over the next six months. We will also continue to focus on better utilizing our resources to sell our highest margin products—private label—through our highest margin channels—CarParts.com, JCwhitney.com, and AutoPartsWarehouse.com. The journey for the new U.S. Auto Parts is just beginning. There is still much to improve, particularly with inventory optimization and in-stock rates, however we are taking the necessary steps to deliver positive adjusted EBITDA in 2019 and look forward to maximizing value for all shareholders as we execute on our operating plan."

Second Quarter 2019 Financial Results

Net sales in the second quarter of 2019 were $73.7 million compared to $77.0 million in the year-ago quarter. The decline was largely driven by a 13% decrease in e-commerce sales attributable to the company's proactive reduction of lower margin sales.

Gross profit in the second quarter of 2019 increased 6% to $21.8 million compared to $20.5 million in the year-ago quarter. As a percentage of net sales, gross profit increased 280 basis points to 29.5% compared to 26.7%. The increase was primarily driven by a greater proportion of higher margin private label sales and improved pricing strategies.

Total operating expenses in the second quarter were $23.0 million compared to $21.0 million in the second quarter of last year. As a percentage of net sales, operating expenses increased to 31.2% compared to 27.3% in the year ago quarter with the increase primarily driven by increased marketing spend and investments in marketing platforms and new employees.

Net loss in the second quarter was $1.5 million, or $(0.04) per share, compared to a net loss of $0.8 million or $(0.02) per share in the year-ago period.

Adjusted EBITDA in the second quarter of 2019 was $1.4 million compared to $2.8 million in the year-ago quarter.

At June 29, 2019, cash and cash equivalents totaled $0.9 million compared to $2.0 million at December 29, 2018. The decrease in cash is primarily a result of employee transition costs, technology capital expenditures, marketing, and setup costs for the company's new distribution center in Las Vegas, Nevada. U.S. Auto Parts also had no revolver debt at each of June 29, 2019 and December 29, 2018.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Regulation G, and other provisions of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, define and prescribe the conditions for use of certain non-GAAP financial information. We provide "Adjusted EBITDA," which is a non-GAAP financial measure. Adjusted EBITDA consists of net income before (a) interest expense, net; (b) income tax provision; (c) depreciation and amortization expense; (d) amortization of intangible assets; (e) share-based compensation expense; (f) costs associated with our customs issue; and (g) costs associated with the executive transitions.

The Company believes that this non-GAAP financial measure provides important supplemental information to management and investors. This non-GAAP financial measures reflect an additional way of viewing aspects of the Company's operations that, when viewed with the GAAP results and the accompanying reconciliation to corresponding GAAP financial measures, provides a more complete understanding of factors and trends affecting the Company's business and results of operations.

Management uses Adjusted EBITDA as one measure of the Company's operating performance because it assists in comparing the Company's operating performance on a consistent basis by removing the impact of stock compensation expense and the costs associated with the customs issue, as well as items that are not expected to be recurring. Internally, this non-GAAP measure is also used by management for planning purposes, including the preparation of internal budgets; for allocating resources to enhance financial performance; and for evaluating the effectiveness of operational strategies. The Company also believes that analysts and investors use Adjusted EBITDA as a supplemental measure to evaluate the ongoing operations of companies in our industry.

This non-GAAP financial measure is used in addition to and in conjunction with results presented in accordance with GAAP and should not be relied upon to the exclusion of GAAP financial measures. Management strongly encourages investors to review the Company's consolidated financial statements in their entirety and to not rely on any single financial measure. Because non-GAAP financial measures are not standardized, it may not be possible to compare these financial measures with other companies' non-GAAP financial measures having the same or similar names. In addition, the Company expects to continue to incur expenses similar to the non-GAAP adjustments described above, and exclusion of these items from the Company's non-GAAP measures should not be construed as an inference that these costs are all unusual, infrequent or non-recurring.

Safe Harbor Statement

This press release contains statements which are based on management's current expectations, estimates and projections about the Company's business and its industry, as well as certain assumptions made by the Company. These statements are forward looking statements for the purposes of the safe harbor provided by Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended and Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended.
