ADVANCE AUTO PARTS, INC. (NYSE:AAP) Files An 8-K Results of Operations and Financial Condition
Item 2.02 Results of Operations and Financial Condition.

On November14, 2017, Advance Auto Parts, Inc. (the "Company") issued a press release setting forth its financial results for its third quarter and forty weeks ended October7, 2017. This release includes forward looking statements including, but are not limited to, statements related to the Company's 2017 fiscal year.

The Company's financial results for the third quarter and forty weeks ended October7, 2017 and October8, 2016 include General Parts International, Inc. ("GPI") integration costs, store consolidation costs, amortization of GPI acquired intangible assets and transformation expenses. As a result of these expenses, the Company’s financial results for these periods include certain non-operational expenses. Thus, the Company’s financial results have been presented in this press release on both a generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") basis and on an adjusted basis to exclude the integration costs, store consolidation costs, amortization and transformation expenses recognized in the respective periods. The Company has provided the required reconciliations of the financial results reported on an adjusted basis to the most directly adjusted GAAP basis and has provided an explanation as to why the financial results presented on a non-GAAP basis are useful to investors.

The press release is attached as Exhibit 99.1 and incorporated by reference herein.

Item 5.02Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.

(e) On November 12, 2017, the Compensation Committee of Advance Auto Parts, Inc. (“the Company”) approved certain changes to the compensation arrangements of Thomas B. Okray, the Company’s Executive Vice President, Chief Financial Officer, including an annual base salary of $600,000, effective immediately, and an additional equity incentive grant with an aggregate value of $1,000,000, based on the closing price of the Company's common stock as reported by the New York Stock Exchange on November 20, 2017, consisting of time-based restricted stock units (“RSUs”) that will vest on the third anniversary of the grant date, so long as Mr. Okray continues to be employed by the Company through the vesting date. If Mr. Okray’s employment is terminated prior to the vesting date on account of death or disability or is terminated by the Company other than for Due Cause or by Mr. Okray for Good Reason, as those terms are defined in his employment agreement, a pro-rated portion of the RSUs will vest immediately based on the portion of the vesting period that he was employed. Mr. Okray’s target bonus opportunity will continue to be 90 percent (90%) of his annual base salary; however, his annual bonus opportunity for 2017 will be based on his base salary in effect prior to the increase.
