CARPARTS.COM, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (UNAUDITED)

(In Thousands, Except Per Share Data)

Note 1 – Basis of Presentation and Description of Company

CarParts.com, Inc. (including its subsidiaries) is a leading online provider of aftermarket auto parts and accessories. The Company sells its products primarily to individual consumers through its flagship website located at www.carparts.com and online marketplaces. Our corporate website is also located at www.carparts.com/investor. References to the “Company,” “we,” “us,” or “our” refer to CarParts.com, Inc. and its consolidated subsidiaries.

The Company’s products consist of replacement parts serving the wear and tear and body repair market, hard parts to serve the maintenance and repair market, and performance parts and accessories. The replacement parts category is primarily comprised of body parts for the exterior of an automobile as well as certain other mechanical or electrical parts that are not related to the functioning of the engine or drivetrain. Our parts in this category typically replace original body parts that have been damaged as a result of general wear and tear or a collision. In addition, we sell an extensive line of mirror products, including parts from our own house brand called Kool-Vue®, which are marketed and sold as aftermarket replacement parts and as upgrades to existing parts. The hard parts category is primarily comprised of engine components and other mechanical and electrical parts including our house brand of catalytic converters called Evan Fischer®. These hard parts serve as replacement parts that are generally used by professionals and do-it-yourselfers for engine and mechanical maintenance and repair. We also offer performance versions of many parts sold in each of the above categories, including parts from our own house brand, JC Whitney®. Performance parts and accessories generally consist of parts that enhance the performance of the automobile, upgrade existing functionality of a specific part or improve the physical appearance or comfort of the automobile.

The Company is a Delaware C corporation and is headquartered in Torrance, California. The Company has employees located in both the United States and the Philippines.

Basis of Presentation

The consolidated financial statements of the Company have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“U.S. GAAP”) for interim financial information and with the instructions to U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) Form 10-Q and Article 10 of SEC Regulation S-X. In the opinion of management, the accompanying consolidated financial statements contain all adjustments, consisting of normal recurring adjustments, necessary to present fairly the consolidated financial position of the Company as of July 3, 2021 and the consolidated results of operations and cash flows for the thirteen and twenty-six weeks ended July 3, 2021 and June 27, 2020. The Company’s results for the interim periods are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for any other interim period, or for the full year. These unaudited consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements and the notes thereto included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended January 2, 2021, which was filed with the SEC on March 16, 2021 and all our other periodic filings, including Current Reports on Form 8-K, filed with the SEC after the end of our 2020 fiscal year, and throughout the date of this report.

During the thirteen and twenty-six weeks ended July 3, 2021, the Company generated net income of $2,072 and incurred a net loss of $650, respectively, compared to net income of $1,568 and $590, respectively, during the thirteen and twenty-six weeks ended June 27, 2020. Based on our current operating plan, we believe that our existing cash, cash equivalents, investments, cash flows from operations and available debt financing will be sufficient to finance our operational cash needs through at least the next twelve months.

Note 2 – Borrowings

The Company maintains an asset-based revolving credit facility ("Credit Facility") that provides for, among other things, a revolving commitment in an aggregate principal amount of up to $30,000, which is subject to a borrowing base derived from certain receivables, inventory, and property and equipment. Our Credit Facility also provides for an option to increase the aggregate principal amount from $30,000 to $40,000 subject to lender approval. As of July 3, 2021, our

8

outstanding revolving loan balance was $0. The outstanding standby letters of credit balance as of July 3, 2021 was $1,435, and we had $0 of our trade letters of credit outstanding in accounts payable in our consolidated balance sheet.

Loans drawn under the Credit Facility bear interest, at the Company’s option, at a per annum rate equal to either (a) LIBOR plus an applicable margin of 1.25% to 1.75% per annum based on the Company's fixed charge coverage ratio, or (b) an “alternate prime base rate” subject to a reduction by 0.25% to 0.75% per annum based on the Company’s fixed charge coverage ratio. As of July 3, 2021, the Company’s LIBOR based interest rate was 1.38% (on $0 principal) and the Company’s prime based rate was 3.00% (on $0 principal). A commitment fee, based upon undrawn availability under the Credit Facility bearing interest at a rate of 0.25% per annum, is payable monthly. Under the terms of the credit agreement with JPMorgan Chase Bank (the "Credit Agreement"), cash receipts are deposited into a lock-box, which are at the Company’s discretion unless the “cash dominion period” is in effect, during which cash receipts will be used to reduce amounts owing under the Credit Agreement. The cash dominion period is triggered in an event of default or if excess availability is less than the $3,600 for three consecutive business days and will continue until, during the preceding 45 consecutive days, no event of default existed and excess availability has been greater than $3,600 at all times (with such trigger subject to adjustment based on the Company’s revolving commitment). In addition, in the event that “excess availability,” as defined under the Credit Agreement, is less than $3,000, the Company shall be required to maintain a minimum fixed charge coverage ratio of 1.0 to 1.0 (with the trigger subject to adjustment based on the Company’s revolving commitment). The Company’s excess availability was $25,764 as of July 3, 2021. The Credit Agreement requires us to obtain a prior written consent from JPMorgan Chase Bank when we determine to pay any dividends on or make any distribution with respect to our common stock. The Credit Facility matures on December 16, 2022.

Options and RSUs that were antidilutive and not included in the dilutive earnings per share calculation amounted to 899 for the thirteen weeks ended July 3, 2021, and options, RSUs and/or preferred stock were antidilutive for the thirteen and twenty-six weeks ended June 27, 2020 amounted to 239 and 3,172, respectively. For the twenty-six weeks ended July 3, 2021, all outstanding potentially dilutive securities have been excluded from the calculation of diluted net loss per share as the effect of including such securities would have been anti-dilutive.

Note 5 – Income Taxes

The Company is subject to U.S. federal income tax as well as income tax of foreign and state tax jurisdictions. The tax years 2016-2020 remain open to examination by the major taxing jurisdictions to which the Company is subject, except the Internal Revenue Service for which the tax years 2017-2020 remain open.

For the thirteen and twenty-six weeks ended July 3, 2021, the effective tax rate for the Company was 5.2% and (34.9%), respectively. The effective tax rate differed from the U.S. federal statutory rate primarily due to state income taxes, income of our Philippines subsidiary that is subject to different effective tax rates, certain employee compensation, share-based compensation that is either not deductible for tax purposes or for which the tax deductible amount is different than the financial reporting amount, and a change in the valuation allowance that offset the tax or benefit on the current period pre-tax income (loss).

For the thirteen and twenty-six weeks ended June 27, 2020, the effective tax rate for the Company was 7.0% and 20.7%, respectively. The effective tax rate differed from the U.S. federal statutory rate primarily due to state income taxes, income of our Philippines subsidiary that is subject to different effective tax rates, share-based compensation that is either not deductible for tax purposes or for which the tax deductible amount is different than the financial reporting amount, and a change in the valuation allowance that offset the tax of the current period pre-tax income.

The Company accounts for income taxes in accordance with ASC Topic 740 - Income Taxes (“ASC 740”). Under the provisions of ASC 740, management is required to evaluate whether a valuation allowance should be established against its deferred tax assets. We currently have a full valuation allowance against our deferred tax assets. As of each reporting date, the Company’s management considers new evidence, both positive and negative, that could impact management’s view with regard to future realization of deferred tax assets. For the twenty-six weeks ended July 3, 2021, there was no material change from fiscal year ended January 2, 2021 in the amount of the Company's deferred tax assets that are not considered to be more likely than not to be realized in future years.

10

On December 27, 2020, the Consolidated Appropriations Act (“CAA”) was enacted in further response to the COVID-19 pandemic, in combination with omnibus spending for the 2021 federal fiscal year. The CAA extended many of the provisions enacted by the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (“CARES Act”), which did not have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements for the thirteen and twenty-six weeks ended July 3, 2021. On March 11, 2021, the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 ("ARPA") was enacted in still further response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Company is evaluating the provisions of ARPA, but does not expect it to have a material impact on the Company's consolidated financial statements for the 2021 fiscal year.

Note 6 – Commitments and Contingencies

Legal Matters

Asbestos. A wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company, Automotive Specialty Accessories and Parts, Inc. and its wholly-owned subsidiary Whitney Automotive Group, Inc. ("WAG"), are named defendants in several lawsuits involving claims for damages caused by installation of brakes during the late 1960’s and early 1970’s that contained asbestos. WAG marketed certain brakes, but did not manufacture any brakes. WAG maintains liability insurance coverage to protect its and the Company’s assets from losses arising from the litigation and coverage is provided on an occurrence rather than a claims made basis, and the Company is not expected to incur significant out-of-pocket costs in connection with this matter that would be material to its consolidated financial statements.

Ordinary course litigation. The Company is subject to legal proceedings and claims which arise in the ordinary course of its business. As of the date hereof, the Company believes that the final disposition of such matters will not have a material adverse effect on the financial position, results of operations or cash flow of the Company. The Company maintains liability insurance coverage to protect the Company’s assets from losses arising out of or involving activities associated with ongoing and normal business operations.

Note 7 – Product Information

As described in Note 1 above, the Company’s products consist of replacement parts serving the wear and tear and body repair market, hard parts to serve the maintenance and repair market, and performance parts and accessories. The following table summarizes the approximate distribution of the Company’s revenue by product type.

Overview

We are a leading online provider of aftermarket auto parts, including replacement parts, hard parts, and performance parts and accessories. We principally sell our products to individual consumers through our flagship website at www.carparts.com and online marketplaces. Our proprietary product database maps our SKUs to product applications based on vehicle makes, models and years. Our corporate website is located at www.carparts.com/investor. The inclusion of our website addresses in this report does not include or incorporate by reference into this report any information on our websites.

We believe by disintermediating the traditional auto parts supply chain and selling products directly to customers online allows us to efficiently deliver products to our customers. Our mission is getting drivers back on the road and our strategy consists of the Right Part, Right Time, Right Place, as outlined below:

Right Part means ensuring our customers can find a solution to fix their vehicle on our website. Our efforts to accomplish this include curating our proprietary catalogue, creating a fast, mobile-friendly user experience, building world class data science and inventory forecasting teams and investing more heavily in our logistics and merchandising capabilities. We continue to take steps to improve our product offerings and offer customers premium products at value prices to assist customers on finding the right part.

Right Time means getting the customers back on the road quickly. We added new distribution centers over the past two years, and plan to add more in the future, to continue improving the customer click to delivery time so that we can keep meeting our customers’ evolving expectations. Our goal is to continue to make investments to improve delivery times by getting closer to our customers to provide them the parts they need in adequate time to get back on the road quickly.

Right Place means empowering our customers to choose how they want to repair and maintain their vehicle. Whether the customer is a Do-It-Yourself (“DIY”) or a Do-It-For-Me (“DIFM”) customer, we intend to continue offering them the resources, tools, and turn-key solutions to get back on the road. Our vision is to provide customers an experience where they can order their repairs or maintain their vehicle and never leave their house. Whether we send a mobile mechanic or refer the customer to a trusted auto repair shop, we intend to be there to solve the customer’s needs and make investments in our technology, or other platforms, to bring this vision to reality.

Industry-wide trends that support our strategy and future growth include:

1.Number of SKUs required to serve the market. The number of automotive SKUs has grown dramatically over the last several years. In today’s market, unless the consumer is driving a high volume produced vehicle and needs a simple maintenance item, the part they need is not typically on the shelf at a brick-and-mortar store. We believe our user-friendly flagship website provides customers with a favorable alternative to the brick-and-mortar shopping experience by offering a comprehensive selection of approximately 854,000 SKUs with detailed product descriptions, attributes and photographs combined with the flexibility of fulfilling orders using both drop-ship and stock-and-ship methods.
2.U.S. vehicle fleet expanding and aging. The average age of U.S. light vehicles, an indicator of auto parts demand, remained near record-highs at 11.9 years during 2020, according to the U.S. Auto Care Association. In addition, IHS, a market analytics firm, found that the total number of light vehicles in operation in the U.S. has increased to record levels, and should continue to rise through 2021. We believe an increasing vehicle base and rising average age of vehicles will have a positive impact on overall aftermarket parts demand because older vehicles generally require more repairs. In many cases we believe these older vehicles are driven by DIY car owners who are more likely to handle any necessary repairs themselves rather than taking their car to the professional repair shop.
3.Growth of online sales. The U.S. Auto Care Association estimated that overall revenue from online sales of auto parts and accessories would reach over $21 billion by 2023. Improved product availability, lower prices and consumers’ growing comfort with digital platforms are driving the shift to online sales. We believe that we are well positioned for the shift to online sales due to our history of being a leading source for aftermarket automotive parts through our flagship website and online marketplaces.

Impact of COVID-19

The COVID-19 pandemic created uncertainty and challenges on the United States and global economy and some challenges continued through the second quarter of 2021. Since the onset of the pandemic, our top priority remains the health and safety of our employees as most have continued to work from home, in addition to ensuring our customers continue receiving our high-quality, personalized service. Our distribution centers continue to remain operational while our safety protocols direct employees onsite to continue to adhere to, and follow, the COVID-19 safety guidelines recommended from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

We continue to monitor and proactively mitigate risks in our supply chain because of the global supply chain disruption and port congestion. We may incur additional freight and container costs as well as increased costs relating to workforce shortages, overtime charges, and detention costs at one or more of our distribution centers due to the continued effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. However, the ultimate extent of the effects from the COVID-19 pandemic on the Company, our financial condition, results of operations, liquidity, and cash flows will be dependent on evolving developments which are uncertain and cannot be predicted at this time. See the “Risk Factors” section set forth in Part II, Item 1A for further discussion of risks related to COVID-19.

Factors Affecting our Performance

We believe that our performance and future success depend on a number of factors that present significant opportunities for us but also pose risks and challenges, including those discussed in Part II, Item IA, of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q and in Part I, Item IA, in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended January 2, 2021.

Executive Summary

For the second quarter of 2021, the Company generated net sales of $157,536, compared with $118,930 for the second quarter of 2020, representing an increase of 32.5%. The Company generated net income of $2,072 for the second quarter of 2021 compared to net income of $1,568 for the second quarter of 2020. The Company generated net income before interest expense, net, income tax provision, depreciation and amortization expense, amortization of intangible

assets, plus share-based compensation expense (“Adjusted EBITDA”) of $8,345 in the second quarter of 2021 compared to $5,557 in the second quarter of 2020. Adjusted EBITDA, which is not a Generally Accepted Accounting Principle (“GAAP”) measure. See the section below titled “Non-GAAP measures” for information regarding our use of Adjusted EBTIDA and a reconciliation from net income (loss).

Net sales increased in the second quarter of 2021 compared to the second quarter of 2020 primarily driven by continued strong demand, the expanded capacity from our Grand Prairie distribution center and additional product offering of branded inventory from our partner network. Gross profit increased by 30.7% to $53,349 and gross margin decreased 40 basis points to 33.9% compared to 34.3% in the second quarter of 2020. The decrease in gross margin was primarily due to continued pressure from inbound and outbound freight as well as a shift in mix in branded products, which typically carry a higher selling price but lower gross margin percentage.

Total expenses, which primarily consisted of cost of sales and operating expense, increased in the second quarter of 2021 compared to the same period in 2020. The changes in both cost of sales and operating expense are described in further detail under — “Results of Operations” below.

Non-GAAP measures

Regulation G, “Conditions for Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures,” and other provisions of the Exchange Act, as amended, define and prescribe the conditions for use of certain non-GAAP financial information. We provide EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA, which are non-GAAP financial measures. EBITDA consists of net income (loss) before (a) interest expense, net; (b) income tax provision; (c) depreciation and amortization expense; and (d) amortization of intangible assets; while Adjusted EBITDA consists of EBITDA before share-based compensation expense.

The Company believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide important supplemental information to management and investors. These non-GAAP financial measures reflect an additional way of viewing aspects of the Company’s operations that, when viewed with the GAAP results and the accompanying reconciliation to corresponding GAAP financial measures, provide a more complete understanding of factors and trends affecting the Company’s business and results of operations.

Management uses Adjusted EBITDA as one measure of the Company’s operating performance because it assists in comparing the Company’s operating performance on a consistent basis by removing the impact of share-based compensation expense as well as other items that we do not believe are representative of our ongoing operating performance. Internally, this non-GAAP measure is also used by management for planning purposes, including the preparation of internal budgets; for allocating resources to enhance financial performance; and for evaluating the effectiveness of operational strategies. The Company also believes that analysts and investors use Adjusted EBITDA as a supplemental measure to evaluate the ongoing operations of companies in our industry.

This non-GAAP financial measure is used in addition to and in conjunction with results presented in accordance with GAAP and should not be relied upon to the exclusion of GAAP financial measures. Management strongly encourages investors to review the Company’s consolidated financial statements in their entirety and to not rely on any single financial measure. Because non-GAAP financial measures are not standardized, it may not be possible to compare these financial measures with other companies’ non-GAAP financial measures having the same or similar names. In addition, the Company expects to continue to incur expenses similar to the non-GAAP adjustments described above, and exclusion of these items from the Company’s non-GAAP measures should not be construed as an inference that these costs are unusual, infrequent or non-recurring.
