CarMax Reports 33 percent Drop in Q1 Profit, Misses on Revenues

CarMax (NYSE:KMX) reported a significant drop in first-quarter profit, with a 33% decline due to continued pressure on vehicle margins in the used-vehicle market. The company posted a net income of $152.4 million, or 97 cents per share, for Q1, down from $228.3 million, or $1.44 per share, in the same period last year.
Revenue also fell short of expectations, coming in at $7.11 billion compared to the consensus estimate of $7.2 billion.
CarMax’s first-quarter performance was further marked by a 3.1% decline in retail used unit sales and a 3.8% drop in comparable store used unit sales from the previous year. Wholesale units saw an 8.3% decrease compared to the first quarter of the prior year. Despite these declines, gross profit per retail used unit remained steady at $2,347, matching last year’s figures, while gross profit per wholesale unit hit a record high of $1,064.
