Under Acquisitions for the Fiscal Year 2022 Transactions, the report states: “On July 5, 2022, the Company acquired 100% of the voting stock of ILT Project Limited which conducts business primarily as Hills Motors (“Hills”), a leading parts recycler in the United Kingdom. Hills predominantly sells recycled parts to the public. The purchase price paid for Hills was $106.6 million.”

The report continued: “The Hills acquisition was undertaken for the strategic fit to the Company. This acquisition has been accounted for using the purchase method in accordance with ASC 805, Business Combinations, which resulted in the recognition of goodwill in the Company’s consolidated financial statements. Goodwill arose because the purchase price reflected a number of factors, including future earnings and cash flow potential; the comparable multiples of earnings, cash flow and other factors at which similar businesses have been purchased by other acquirers; and the complementary strategic fit and resulting synergies brought to existing operations.

Goodwill is calculated as the excess of the consideration transferred over the fair value of the identifiable net assets acquired and is not amortized for financial reporting purposes. The acquisition of Hills is currently undergoing review by the U.K.

Competition and Markets Authority. Given the timing of the acquisition the Company has not completed its determination of the fair value of assets acquired and liabilities assumed and the amount shown in the table above are preliminary amounts. The estimates and assumptions used in the preliminary purchase price allocation are subject to change if additional information, which existed as of the acquisition date, becomes known to the Company. However, the Company believes any changes to the preliminary purchase price allocation will not have a material impact to the Company’s consolidated financial position and results of operations.

The Hills acquisition did not result in a significant change in the Company’s consolidated results of operations; therefore, pro forma financial information has not been presented. The operating results have been included in the Company’s consolidated financial position and results of operations since the acquisition date.”
