Commentary
David Smith, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Sonic Automotive, stated, “Our quarterly results reflect another period of solid financial performance, including record third quarter revenues, gross profit and earnings per share. During the third quarter, we continued to see persistent consumer demand for new vehicles and sustained growth in our parts and service business, driving all-time record Fixed Operations gross profit. These trends have carried over from the first half of 2022, in spite of a challenging used vehicle environment and macroeconomic headwinds such as inflation, rising interest rates, and ongoing global new vehicle supply chain constraints. We believe Sonic’s ability to successfully navigate this environment demonstrates the strength of our diversified model and our unwavering commitment to generating long-term value for our key stakeholders.”
