CarMax Reports Third Quarter Fiscal 2021 Results

December 22, 2020

RICHMOND, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- CarMax, Inc. (NYSE:KMX), the nation’s largest and most profitable retailer of used cars, today reported results for the third quarter ended November 30, 2020.

Highlights:

  • Net earnings for the third quarter increased 35.9% and net earnings per diluted share increased 36.5% from the prior year, driven by strong execution in a dynamic environment.
  • Total used units sold increased 1.0%, while used unit sales in comparable stores were down 0.8%; gross profit per used unit of $2,151 was similar to the prior year quarter.
  • Total wholesale units increased 10.8% driven by a record third quarter buy rate; wholesale gross profit per unit decreased slightly to $906 despite sharp depreciation in the broader market.
  • CarMax Auto Finance (CAF) income increased 54.7% due to the combined effects of favorable loan loss performance, higher net interest margin and an increase in average managed receivables.
  • Enthusiastic customer response to omni-channel experience with majority of customers progressing more of their transaction online.

CEO Commentary:

“We delivered strong EPS growth this quarter thanks to solid execution by our teams,” said Bill Nash, president and chief executive officer. “Despite the near-term market challenges due to the trajectory of the pandemic, our fundamentals remain robust and reflect the strength of our diversified business model spanning retail, wholesale, and auto finance. This strength, combined with our emerging omni-channel experience, is a unique advantage in the used car industry that firmly positions us to continue growing our market share while creating shareholder value over the long-term.”

Nash continued, “We have an incredible platform with unmatched scale and strength across buying, selling and inventory management. The foundation of our success remains providing a world-class experience for our customers, no matter how they interact with us. Our omni-channel capabilities give customers the flexibility to seamlessly connect and transact with us in more ways than ever. We are pleased with the increase in online engagement we are already seeing, and, with the further digital enhancements and offerings we are rolling out, we are creating a customer experience we believe will be unrivaled in the used car industry.”

Third Quarter Business Performance Review:

Sales . Total used vehicle unit sales increased 1.0% while comparable store used unit sales decreased 0.8% compared with increases of 11.0% and 7.5%, respectively, for the prior year’s third quarter. For the first part of the quarter, we achieved mid-single digit comparable store sales growth, continuing the positive momentum from the second quarter. However, demand softened and sales trended down in the latter part of the quarter. Some of the factors that we believe impacted sales were the surge in COVID-19 cases, which constrained demand and resulted in tightened occupancy restrictions and shelter-in-place orders from state and local governments, as well as the uncertainty around the election and future stimulus programs. Total used vehicle revenues increased 4.5% due primarily to average retail selling prices rising nearly $700 per unit versus the prior year quarter. This largely reflected higher vehicle acquisition costs resulting from strong wholesale industry valuations.

Total wholesale vehicle unit sales increased 10.8% compared with the third quarter of fiscal 2020. Our wholesale sales benefited from a record third quarter appraisal buy rate, partially offset by lower appraisal traffic.

Other sales and revenues declined 2.3% compared with the third quarter of fiscal 2020, reflecting a decrease of $6.9 million in other revenues. The decrease in other revenues was partially offset by EPP revenue growth of 4.8% largely reflecting a $5.0 million increase from favorable adjustments to cancellation reserves and profit sharing revenue recognized in the current quarter.

Gross Profit . Total gross profit increased 2.9% versus last year’s third quarter to $631.4 million. Used vehicle gross profit rose 1.3%, reflecting the increase in total used unit sales. Used vehicle gross profit per unit remained steady at $2,151 compared with $2,145 in the prior year’s quarter. Wholesale vehicle gross profit increased 7.1% versus the prior year’s quarter, largely reflecting an increase in volume. Wholesale vehicle gross profit of $906 per unit was down modestly from $937 in the prior year quarter. Other gross profit increased 5.0%, reflecting the growth in EPP revenues.

SG&A . Compared with the third quarter of fiscal 2020, SG&A expenses decreased 1.2% to $478.8 million. SG&A per used unit was $2,461, down $57 year-over-year. Factors contributing to the decline in SG&A expenses included a $15.6 million decrease in stock-based compensation expense and a $14.8 million decrease in other overhead costs due primarily to pandemic-related cost reductions and lower litigation expenses. These decreases were partially offset by a $7.0 million increase in advertising, the 5% growth in our store base since the beginning of last year’s third quarter and continued spending to advance our technology platforms and support strategic initiatives.

CarMax Auto Finance .(1) Compared with last year’s third quarter, CAF income increased 54.7% to $176.4 million, reflecting a decrease in the provision for loan losses to $8.2 million from $49.0 million in the prior year quarter, plus an increase in net interest margin and average managed receivables. Our loan loss experience in the third quarter was favorable to the expectations we set at the end of the second quarter, which resulted in the lower provision. As of November 30, 2020, the allowance for loan losses of $431.6 million was 3.17% of ending managed receivables, down from 3.23% as of August 31, 2020.

CAF’s total interest margin percentage, which represents the spread between interest and fees charged to consumers and our funding costs, improved to 6.3% of average managed receivables from 5.7% in the prior year’s third quarter, primarily due to lower funding costs. After the effect of 3-day payoffs, CAF financed 45.7% of units sold in the current quarter, up from 43.3% in the prior year’s third quarter.

Share Repurchase Activity . We repurchased 1.2 million shares of common stock for $109.2 million pursuant to our share repurchase program during the third quarter of fiscal 2021. As of November 30, 2020, we had $1.40 billion remaining available for repurchase under the outstanding authorization.

Store Openings .During the third quarter of fiscal 2021, we resumed construction activity on new stores following the pause in our store expansion strategy in the first quarter due to the pandemic. We anticipate opening between 8 and 10 stores in fiscal 2022.

Although CAF benefits from certain indirect overhead expenditures, we have not allocated indirect costs to CAF to avoid making subjective allocation decisions.
