Revenue for the full year of 2020 was $11.6 billion, a decrease of 7.0% as compared to $12.5 billion for the same period of 2019. For the full year of 2020, parts and services organic revenue decreased 7.6% (8.2% on a per-day basis), while the net impact of acquisitions and divestitures decreased revenue 0.5% and foreign exchange rates increased revenue 0.5%, for a total parts and services revenue decline of 7.7%.

Dominick Zarcone, President and Chief Executive Officer said:

“Our focus throughout the COVID-19 crisis has been the health and safety of our employees as well as our customers. Despite the headwinds we faced throughout 2020, we were able to execute on our key operating initiatives of pursuing profitable revenue, enhanced margins and free cash flow generation. Additionally, the cost reductions our teams implemented in 2020 to confront the pandemic’s impact on demand are lessons that we will apply to our operations in 2021 and beyond.”

He added: “We again delivered strong quarterly results, with the fourth quarter 2020 being the second-highest quarterly earnings, and highest fourth-quarter earnings, in the Company’s history.

Additionally, we achieved our highest level of annual free cash flow at $1.3 billion and North America’s highest annual segment EBITDA margin of 16.8%. Europe completed a strong second half with a Segment EBITDA margin of 8.9%, above the range of 8.0% to 8.5% presented at our September 2020 Investor Day. As we look to the year ahead, I am confident that the strength of our operations, balance sheet and free cash flow all position LKQ for solid growth and value creation for our stakeholders.”
