Greg Johnson, O’Reilly’s president and CEO, commented, “Our second quarter comparable store sales increase of 4.3%, and the corresponding three-year comparable store sales stack increase of 30.4%, are clear indicators of our team’s ability to grow our business and take market share. After experiencing volatility in our sales results in the first quarter, the trends in our business improved and were steady throughout the second quarter.”

Johnson continued, “We continue to be very pleased with the strong growth in our professional business, which performed in line with our expectations for the second quarter, while our DIY business faced more pronounced pressure from the impact of high fuel prices and continued significant broad-based inflation. Even facing these macroeconomic challenges, we are pleased with the strong sales volumes our team is generating in 2022, against comparisons to record comparable store sales results the past two years. We are extremely proud of Team O’Reilly’s ability to deliver continued growth on top of the strongest years in our company’s history, and I am grateful for the unrelenting focus each of our team members places on taking care of our customers.”

Year-to-Date Financial Results

Johnson concluded, “The pressure on our DIY customers from heightened inflation and fuel prices has impacted our year-to-date performance, and we have factored the current environment into our expectations for the second half of the year. As a result, we are reducing our full-year comparable store sales guidance to a range of 3% to 5%. Despite these pressures, we remain confident in the strength of the core underlying demand drivers of our business. We are pleased with our start to the third quarter in July and are extremely confident in our team’s ability to execute our business model and provide the excellent customer service that drives our success as we finish out 2022.”
