Motorcar Parts of America Provides Clarification of the Delay in Filing its Fiscal Second Quarter 10-Q

November 12, 2018

LOS ANGELES, Nov. 12, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Motorcar Parts of America, Inc. (Nasdaq: MPAA) today announced the company is continuing to evaluate its accounting policies related to new business contracts.

As announced on Friday, the company has delayed the filing of its fiscal second quarter Form 10-Q while it reviews its accounting practices primarily related to the timing of recognizing certain expenses incurred in connection with new business. These expenses are primarily allowances for core inventory purchase obligations at the start of a new business relationship.

Notwithstanding the delay in filing its Form 10-Q for the fiscal 2019 second quarter, the company expects to report record adjusted net sales for the first half. In addition, orders for the current fiscal third quarter are strong and the company anticipates record adjusted net sales for the second half. Adjusted net sales include adjustments for customer allowances and initial return accruals related to new business. The company is currently unable to reconcile adjusted net sales to GAAP net sales due to the issues discussed above.

The company does not believe this review of the accounting for new business contracts will affect its liquidity, operations or strong growth momentum.
