Chicago, IL (July 25, 2019) -- LKQ Corporation (Nasdaq:LKQ) today reported revenue for the second quarter of 2019 of $3.25 billion, an increase of 7.2% as compared to $3.0 billion in the second quarter of 2018. For the second quarter of 2019, parts and services organic revenue declined 2.1%, (1.3% on a per day basis), and acquisition revenue growth was 12.6%, while the impact of exchange rates was (2.5%), for total parts and services revenue growth of 8.0%.
Net income1 for the second quarter of 2019 was $150 million, a decrease of 4.2% year-over-year. Diluted earnings per share1 for the second quarter of 2019 was $0.48 as compared to $0.50 for the same period of 2018, a decrease of 4.0%. The second quarter 2019 results included a $25 million non-cash impairment charge, net of tax, related to an expected recovery below carrying value of our previously announced assets held for sale. On an adjusted basis, net income was $204 million, an increase of 6.3% as compared to the $192 million for the same period of 2018. On an adjusted basis, diluted earnings per share for the second quarter of 2019 was $0.65, an increase of 6.6% as compared to $0.61 for the same period of 2018.
Dominick Zarcone, President and Chief Executive Officer of LKQ Corporation, stated, “We continued to make progress on our key productivity initiatives during the second quarter, which are having a positive impact on our financial and operational performance. We delivered this performance notwithstanding difficult revenue growth comparisons across all of our operating segments, a soft collision environment in the U.S. and the ongoing macroeconomic challenges and the impact of one less selling day in Europe. Against this backdrop, our continued focus on integrating and simplifying our operating model to drive cash conversion resulted in LKQ generating the highest quarter of operating cash flow in the Company’s history. Additionally, in North America we produced Segment EBITDA margins of 14.4%, a 130-basis point improvement over last year and the highest level since the second quarter of 2017.”
