Copart Reports Third Quarter Fiscal 2019 Financial Results

DALLAS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Copart, Inc. (NASDAQ: CPRT) today reported financial results for the
quarter ended April 30, 2019.

For the three months ended April 30, 2019, revenue, gross profit, and
net income were $553.1 million, $251.6 million, and $192.7 million,
respectively. These represent an increase in revenue of $74.9 million,
or 15.7%; an increase in gross profit of $32.5 million, or 14.8%; and an
increase in net income of $65.4 million, or 51.3%, respectively, from
the same period last year. Fully diluted earnings per share for the
three months were $0.81 compared to $0.52 last year, an increase of
55.8%.

For the nine months ended April 30, 2019, revenue, gross profit, and net
income were $1.5 billion, $655.7 million, and $438.2 million,
respectively. These represent an increase in revenue of $142.9 million,
or 10.5%; an increase in gross profit of $81.8 million, or 14.2%; and an
increase in net income of $130.1 million, or 42.2%, respectively, from
the same period last year. Fully diluted earnings per share for the nine
months were $1.82 compared to $1.28 last year, an increase of 42.2%.

The operating results for the three and nine months ended April 30, 2018
were adversely affected by abnormal costs of $7.4 million and $79.7
million, respectively, incurred as a result of Hurricane Harvey. These
costs included temporary storage facilities; abnormally high costs for
subhaulers; increased labor costs due to overtime; travel and lodging
due to the reassignment of employees to the affected region; and
equipment lease expenses to handle the increased volume, as well as cost
of vehicle sales. These costs, net of the associated revenues of $3.5
million and $66.9 million, respectively, generated pre-tax loss for the
three months ended April 30, 2018 of $3.9 million and a pre-tax loss for
the nine months ended April 30, 2018 of $12.8 million.

Excluding the impact of income taxes on the deemed repatriation of
foreign earnings, net of deferred tax changes, discrete income tax
items, disposals of non-operating assets, foreign currency-related gains
and losses, certain income tax benefits and payroll taxes related to
accounting for stock option exercises, and the effect on common
equivalent shares from ASU 2016-09, non-GAAP fully diluted earnings per
share for the three months ended April 30, 2019 and 2018, were $0.66 and
$0.52, respectively. Non-GAAP fully diluted earnings per share for the
nine months ended April 30, 2019 and 2018, were $1.64 and $1.31,
respectively. A reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures to the
most directly comparable financial measures computed in accordance with
U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) can be found in the
tables attached to this press release.
