U.S. Auto Parts Network Is Now CarParts.com

The company decided it needed a name that reflected the tech-forward business it has become.

U.S. Auto Parts Network, Inc. recently announced it has formally changed its name to CarParts.com, Inc. Following its sales growth and its inclusion in the Russell 2000 Index, the company decided it needed a name that reflected the tech-forward company it has become. The company, which has been a leader in online aftermarket auto parts for more than 20 years, has built a strong brand identity and loyal, engaged consumer base under its flagship brand – CarParts.com – and decided its official corporate name should reflect this progression.

“CarParts.com is a tech company,” said Lev Peker, CEO of CarParts.com. “Like the best tech firms, CarParts.com’s value is in its people, expertise, supply chain, proprietary software, parts catalogue and consumer brand. The new name speaks to the way we have used technology and e-commerce expertise to increase sales and profitability.”

As an e-commerce auto parts company, CarParts.com has carved a niche in the tech sector. CarParts.com is transforming the way drivers shop for auto parts in order to benefit today’s digital consumer. Through its simple and convenient website, CarParts.com enables consumers to connect with the parts that they need to get their vehicle on the road.

The U.S. Auto Parts NASDAQ ticker (PRTS) will be retained. CarParts.com, Inc. common stock has been assigned the CUSIP number 14427M107. Trading under the new name will begin at market opening on Tuesday, July 28, 2020. Holders of common stock are not required to exchange currently outstanding stock certificates for new stock certificates.

CarParts.com remains committed to maintaining the customer-centric strategy that has drawn consumer trust and respect for over two decades. The updated corporate identification reflects the company’s customer-first mentality in making the process of purchasing car parts online reliable, fast, cost-effective and easy. Through continued innovation and growth, CarParts.com is dedicated to improving the e-commerce customer experience for drivers.
