Chicago, IL—February 24, 2011—LKQ Corporation (NASDAQ: LKQX) today announced results for its fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2010.

“I am very pleased with the quarter and the year, as we continued our stellar financial performance, with revenue for the year growing 20.6% to $2.5 billion,” commented Joseph Holsten, Vice Chairman and Co-Chief Executive Officer of LKQ Corporation. “We continued to see increased usage of alternative collision parts in 2010, which has allowed us to grow despite challenging economic conditions. Our organic revenue growth rate for parts and services was 7.0% during the fourth quarter.”

Mr. Holsten added, “We also continued to grow through acquisitions. In 2010 we completed 20 acquisitions, which helped us to continue to build out our North American footprint and to add depth and breadth to our product offering. Revenue growth attributable to acquisitions was 10.7% in the fourth quarter of 2010. I expect 2011 will be another busy year for acquisitions.”
