Commentary

David Smith, Sonic’s and EchoPark’s Chief Executive Officer, commented, “During the second quarter, our team continued to execute at a high level, driving record performance in our franchised dealerships and a fourth consecutive quarter of record revenue and retail unit sales volume for our EchoPark business. Given the increasing consumer demand we’ve experienced, our success in maximizing operating efficiency at our franchised dealerships and continued expansion of the EchoPark brand, we believe we can sustain our strong operating performance throughout the balance of 2021 and well into 2022. Longer-term, we’re confident of attaining our goal of more than doubling total revenues to $25 billion by 2025 while continuing to significantly increase profitability.”

Jeff Dyke, Sonic’s and EchoPark’s President, commented, “We are pleased to report that we are halfway through our nationwide EchoPark distribution network & digital expansion plan for 2021, and expect to achieve 25% population coverage by the end of 2021 and 90% population coverage by 2025. At 10% share of our segment of the market, which we already exceed in our more mature markets, this represents a 2 million vehicle annual sales opportunity at maturity. Complementing this, we are making excellent progress with our new, proprietary digital retail platform and are on track for a fourth quarter 2021 launch. In the meantime, our guest-centric EchoPark buying experience continues to drive market share gains and we anticipate our market penetration and brand recognition will continue to grow rapidly in tandem with our nationwide network.”
