Results of Operations and Financial Condition

OnAugust 9,2018, Motorcar Parts of America, Inc. (the “Company”) issued a press release announcing its earnings for the fiscal quarterendedJune 30, 2018which is being furnished as Exhibit 99.1. The information contained herein and in the accompanying exhibit shall not be incorporated by reference into any filing of the Company, whether made before or after the date hereof, regardless of any general incorporation language in such filing, unless expressly incorporated by specific reference to such filing. The information in this report, including the exhibit hereto, shall not be deemed to be “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section or Sections 11 and 12(a)(2) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended.

The attached exhibit includes non-GAAP Adjusted net sales, non-GAAP adjusted net income (loss), non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP adjusted gross profit and non-GAAP adjusted gross margin. The Company believes that these supplemental non-GAAP financial measures, when presented together with the corresponding GAAP financial measures, provide useful information to investors and management regarding financial and business trends relating to its results of operations. However, non-GAAP financial measures have certain limitations in that they do not reflect all of the costs associated with the operations of the Company’s business as determined in accordance with GAAP. Therefore, investors should consider non-GAAP financial measures in addition to, and not as a substitute for, or as superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP.

The Company makes adjustments to the following items to calculate its non-GAAP financial measures:

Initial return and stock adjustment accruals related to new business. In connection with new business, the Company may establish initial return and stock adjustment accruals to account for the anticipated increased levels of business activity. The Company excluded these initial up-front accruals from net sales because they do not reflect the Company’s operations on an ongoing basis and excluding such accruals enables period-over-period comparability.

Customer allowances related to new business. In connection with new business, the Company may purchase cores from customers, may purchase the customer’s prior supplier’s inventory, or may provide certain customer allowances. The allowances are granted on a negotiated basis, and the Company excluded these allowances from net sales because they do not reflect ongoing product pricing or net sales and excluding such allowances enables period-over-period comparability.

New product line start-up and ramp-up costs, and transition expenses. These are start-up costs incurred prior to recognizing sales for the launch of new product lines and costs of ramping up production. Transition expenses are costs incurred in connection with the expansion of the Company's operations in Mexico. The Company excluded start-up and ramp-up costs, and transition expenses because they do not reflect the Company’s operations on an ongoing basis and excluding such costs enables period-over-period comparability.

Lower of cost or net realizable value revaluation- cores on customers' shelves and inventory step-up amortization. On a quarterly basis, the Company revalues long-term core inventory based on lower of cost or net realizable value in accordance with the Company’s accounting policies. The impact of this revaluation is reflected in cost of goods sold. The Company excluded the lower of cost or net realizable value revaluation for cores on customers’ shelves because the core inventory on the customers’ shelves is not consumed or realized in cash during the Company’s normal operating cycle. Additionally, amortization of inventory step-up relates to an acquisition and is excluded because it is not ongoing. Neither is used by management to assess the profitability of its business operations.

Cost of customer allowances and stock adjustment accruals related to new business. As described above for the adjustments to net sales, the Company also adds back the cost of customer allowances related to inventory purchases and stock adjustment accruals to cost of goods sold because they do not reflect the Company’s operations on an ongoing basis and excluding such costs enables period-over-period comparability.

Acquisition, financing, transition, severanceand other costs.The Company has incurred acquisition, financing, transition, severanceand other costs that are not related to current operations. The Company excluded these costs to enable period-over-period comparability.

Share-based compensation expenses. These expenses primarily consist of the cost to provide employee restricted stock and restricted stock units, and employee stock options. The Company excluded share-based compensation expense because it is not used by management to assess the profitability of its business operations.

Mark-to-market losses (gains). The Company excluded mark-to-market gains and losses because they are unrealized and are not reflective of actual current cash flows and operating results.

Write-off of debt issuance costs. The Company excludes the write-off of debt issuance costs because they are not related to the Company's ongoing business operations or financing arrangements.
