While I acknowledge that the 2018 results didn’t live up to our initial expectations due to operational challenges in parts of the business and economic headwinds, particularly in Europe, I believe that we are taking the necessary steps to position the Company for continued success,” stated Dominick Zarcone, President and Chief Executive Officer of LKQ Corporation. “As we look forward to fiscal 2019, we will continue to execute on our productivity initiatives across each operating segment and remain focused on profitable revenue growth, margin enhancement, excellent cash conversion, and optimizing our capital allocation strategy.”
