MEMPHIS, Tenn., May 23, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- AutoZone, Inc. (NYSE:AZO) today reported net sales of $2.6 billion for its third quarter (12 weeks) ended May 6, 2017, an increase of 1.0% from the third quarter of fiscal 2016 (12 weeks).  Domestic same store sales, or sales for stores open at least one year, declined 0.8% for the quarter. Net income for the quarter increased 1.3% over the same period last year to $331.7 million, while diluted earnings per share increased 6.2% to $11.44 per share from $10.77 per share in the year-ago quarter.  As previously reported, the Company adopted a new accounting standard on August 28, 2016, related to stock option exercises.  For the quarter, the adoption of the new standard increased EPS by $0.32.  Excluding this adjustment, EPS would have increased by 3.2%. For the quarter, gross profit, as a percentage of sales, was 52.6% (21 bps deleverage versus the same period last year).  The decrease in gross margin was attributable to higher supply chain costs associated with current year inventory initiatives (-28 bps) and higher inventory shrink results (-20 bps), partially offset by lower acquisition costs.  Operating expenses, as a percentage of sales, were 32.4% (25 bps deleverage versus the same period last year).  Operating expenses, as a percentage of sales, were higher than last year primarily from fixed cost deleverage due to our comparable stores sales decline, higher self-insurance cost and increasing wage pressures, partially offset by favorability from last year’s discrete legal charge and lower incentive compensation. Under its share repurchase program, AutoZone repurchased 396 thousand shares of its common stock for $284 million during the third quarter, at an average price of $716 per share.  At the end of the third quarter, the Company had $1.051 billion remaining under its current share repurchase authorization. The Company’s inventory increased 7.3% over the same period last year, driven by new stores and increased product placement.  Inventory per location was $653 thousand versus $629 thousand last year and $665 thousand last quarter.  Net inventory, defined as merchandise inventories less accounts payable, on a per location basis, was a negative $47 thousand versus negative $69 thousand last year and negative $36 thousand last quarter. “I would like to thank all AutoZoners across the organization for their dedication to serving our customers throughout a very challenging spring sales season.  Our sales performance for the first five weeks of our quarter was significantly below our expectations, challenged by the well-publicized timing delays in IRS tax refunds.  The last seven weeks of sales demonstrated improvement, but not enough to make up for our soft start.  While this quarter’s results were below our expectations, our AutoZoners’ ongoing commitment to providing customers with Trustworthy Advice has us well positioned for the summer ahead.  Notwithstanding macro headwinds, including increasing wage pressures, we are confident in our long term positive fundamentals for sales growth, and we remain committed to driving shareholder value,” said Bill Rhodes, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer. During the quarter ended May 6, 2017, AutoZone opened 35 new stores and relocated two stores in the U.S., opened eight new stores in Mexico, and none in Brazil.  As of May 6, 2017, the Company had 5,381 stores in 50 states in the U.S., the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico, 499 stores in Mexico, 26 IMC branches, and nine stores in Brazil for a total count of 5,915. AutoZone is the leading retailer and a leading distributor of automotive replacement parts and accessories in the United States. Each AutoZone store carries an extensive product line for cars, sport utility vehicles, vans and light trucks, including new and remanufactured automotive hard parts, maintenance items, accessories, and non-automotive products.  Many stores also have a commercial sales program that provides commercial credit and prompt delivery of parts and other products to local, regional and national repair garages, dealers, service stations, and public sector accounts.  IMC branches carry an extensive line of original equipment quality import replacement parts.  AutoZone also sells the ALLDATA brand diagnostic and repair software through www.alldata.com. Additionally, we sell automotive hard parts, maintenance items, accessories, and non-automotive products through www.autozone.com, and accessories, performance and replacement parts through www.autoanything.com, and our commercial customers can make purchases through www.autozonepro.com and www.imcparts.net.  AutoZone does not derive revenue from automotive repair or installation. AutoZone will host a conference call this morning, Tuesday, May 23, 2017, beginning at 10:00 a.m. (EDT) to discuss its third quarter results.  Investors may listen to the conference call live and review supporting slides on the AutoZone corporate website, www.autozoneinc.com by clicking “Investor Relations,” “Conference Calls.”  The call will also be available by dialing (210) 839-8923.  A replay of the call and slides will be available on AutoZone’s website.  In addition, a replay of the call will be available by dialing (203) 369-1211 through Tuesday, May 30, 2017, at 11:59 p.m. (EDT). This release includes certain financial information not derived in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”).  These non-GAAP measures include adjustments to reflect return on invested capital, adjusted debt, adjusted debt to EBITDAR, and cash flow before share repurchases.  The Company believes that the presentation of these non-GAAP measures provides information that is useful to investors as it indicates more clearly the Company’s comparative year-to-year operating results, but this information should not be considered a substitute for any measures derived in accordance with GAAP.  Management targets the Company’s capital structure in order to maintain its investment grade credit ratings and manages cash flows available for share repurchase by monitoring cash flows before share repurchases, as shown on the attached tables.  The Company believes this is important information for the management of its debt levels and share repurchases.  We have included a reconciliation of this additional information to the most comparable GAAP measures in the accompanying reconciliation tables.

Government on Wednesday ordered that Brian Molefe’s return to the helm of Eskom be rescinded and conceded that it had inflicted reputational harm on the country and the power utility. Public Enterprises Minister Lynne Brown told a media briefing she had met with the Eskom board and instructed it to remove Molefe from the post, following a decision by an inter-ministerial commission that considered the circumstances surrounding his controversial reappointment earlier this month. Brown said she would appoint an acting CEO within 48 hours, and hinted that she could also remove the board next month over the debacle that drew criticism from the ruling African National Congress and sent the opposition to court to demand Molefe’s removal. She said she would, however, wait until after Eskom’s annual general meeting in three weeks’ time. She would not act sooner so as not to cause “more scurrying in the markets”. Finance Minister Malusi Gigaba concurred that “there obviously has to be some consequences for this situation that we have come out of”. Brown said it was not clear to her at this stage whether Molefe would receive a termination pay-out, and she would discuss the issue with the board. “I have an idea in my head but I can’t put my head on the table,” she said, adding that she had not spoken to Molefe, but left it to the board to inform him of government’s decision. Molefe left Eskom under a cloud in November last year after he was implicated in former Public Protector Thuli Madonsela’s report on State capture. He was reappointed to his old post two weeks ago, for the stated reason that he had mistakenly been granted early retirement which would entitle him to a pension pay-out of R30-million, a move that was vetoed by Brown. The ministerial committee said on Wednesday it was of the view that the board could have corrected the administrative errors relating to Molefe’s contract in other ways than reinstating him. “We are saying that the decision that was taken was unfortunate,” Gigaba said. “The events of the last three weeks have been quite painful in a number of ways…. the board, if it sought to correct the anomalies in the issues that arose when the group CE resigned or retired, they could have done so administratively without having taken the decision that they took. “It has caused government a lot of harm… it has caused Eskom itself a lot of reputational damage, it has caused board members a lot of reputational damage.” Gigaba stressed that government’s decision should not be seen as a reflection on Molefe, who previously headed Transnet and served as an ANC MP for a few months this year. “He is well capable. He has proven himself in a number of his previous responsibilities. We believe he still has an enormous contribution to make to the country, in whatever way it will be.” He added: “There is no decision on our part of where he is going, there are no plans to appoint him anywhere else.” Justice Minister Michael Masutha, who led the media briefing, said Eskom had been forced to make serious concessions in the papers it filed in opposing the Democratic Alliance’s court application to have Molefe removed, including that his contract wrongly allowed him to retire at the age of 50, his current age. He said, however, the IMC’s decision should not be read as any reflection on what the outcome of the application may have been. After the announcement that Molefe’s contract was terminated, the DA’s public enterprises spokeswoman, Natasha Mazzone, said it was imperative that a full-scale parliamentary probe be instituted into the state of affairs at Eskom. Brown last week announced that she would be asking the Special Investigating Unit to investigate procurement problems at Eskom from 2007, to review all evidence gathered in the scope of seven separate investigations in recent years. This would include an investigation by PricewaterhouseCoopers that found that Eskom had failed to do due diligence when it hastily awarded a coal contract to the Gupta family’s Tegeta Exploration in 2015. Molefe and Eskom chairman Ben Ngubane on Tuesday assured Parliament’s Standing Committee on Public Accounts that there had been nothing untoward about the deal as Eskom frequently concluded coal contracts without a competitive tender to prevent load-shedding.

Proactive learning strategies to boost staff performance when using software applications London/Saarbrücken, Wednesday 23rd September 2015 IMC, a provider of bespoke e-learning content, learning management and compliance solutions, has released a new whitepaper titled, "Informal Learning and Electronic Performance Support: A guide to cutting internal helpdesk costs by 40 percent". The whitepaper aims to help organisations significantly reduce their training and helpdesk support costs as well as the time their employees waste on 'how to' questions. According to Gartner, many organisations can save as much as 40 percent a year* on helpdesk and staff time spent on ‘how to' queries by using an effective EPS system. This could equate to 152.000 Euros based on a workforce of 200 people or 835.000 Euros based on a 1,000 employee workforce. Enquiries to help desks typically revolve around the need to know how to carry out a function on a software package or data entry on a CRM system. Valuable time is also lost by searching on the internet, reading manuals or asking colleagues for help. The IMC whitepaper looks at addressing three key elements: 1. How organisations can implement proactive informal learning strategies and technologies to help reduce the need for helpdesk support 2. The pros and cons and some examples of formal and informal learning 3. How L&D professionals can support informal learning, measure results and save money whilst improving on the job support. IMC has also scheduled a lunchtime webinar on Wednesday 14 October 2015 at 12.30pm GMT to discuss Electronic Performance Support Systems (EPSS) and Informal Learning. Participants to this webinar will be given exclusive access to the whitepaper before it is released. To register for the webinar and to access the whitepaper please visit our website or for enquires please e-mail info@im-c.com. Dirk Thissen, IMC UK Managing Director, comments, "Organisations are increasingly required to adapt to change. This may include a number of factors such as a high turnover of products, services or staff, or meeting compliance and regulatory requirements. As a result of this may impact how staff are required to record information. Informal and formal learning may nowadays include a mix of Electronic Performance Service Support (EPSS), mobile bite-sized learning and mentoring programmes. Our whitepaper aims to provide some guidance on what HR and L&D professionals should consider when supporting staff without impacting on the quality of training." Notes to editor *Calculations based on data and reports which are available on http://www.gartner.com/ research and which set the optimum ratio of employees to helpdesk staff as: 45:1 if using more than one IT system, and 70:1 if using only one IT system. The formula then considers how much of the helpdesk staff members' time will be spent on assisting colleagues with ‘how to' queries (estimated to be approximately 40 percent of helpdesk time according to Gartner research). This and other press releases are available for download from our website: http://www.im-c.com/. Opinions and proposals regarding HR, IT and eLearning can be found on the IMC Blog.
