U.S. Auto Parts Network, Inc. operates as an online source for automotive aftermarket parts and repair information. The company principally sells its products, identified as stock keeping units (SKUs), to individual consumers through its network of Websites and online marketplaces. The company’s Websites provide customers with a selection of approximately 1.1 million SKUs with product descriptions and photographs. It has developed a proprietary product database that maps its SKUs to product applications based on vehicle makes, models, and years. Products The company offers a selection of aftermarket auto parts. It classifies its products into three categories, including body parts, engine parts, and performance parts and accessories. Body Parts: The body parts category primarily comprises parts for the exterior of an automobile. The company’s parts in this category are typically replacement parts for original body parts that have been damaged as a result of a collision or through general wear and tear. The majority of these products are sold through its Websites. In addition, the company sells a line of mirror products, including its own private-label brand called Kool-Vue, which are marketed and sold as aftermarket replacement parts and as upgrades to existing parts. Engine/Hard Parts: The engine parts category comprises engine components and other mechanical and electrical parts, which are often referred to as hard parts. These parts serve as replacement parts for existing engine parts and are generally used by professionals and do-it-yourselfers for engine and mechanical maintenance and repair. Performance Parts and Accessories: The company offers performance versions of various parts sold in each of its product categories. Performance parts and accessories consist of parts that enhance the performance of the automobile, upgrade existing functionality of a specific part, or improve the physical appearance or comfort of the automobile. International Operations The company has its offshore operations in the Philippines. It ships auto parts through a freight forwarding partner worldwide. In 2013, the company shipped auto parts to approximately 147 different countries. Sales Channels The company’s sales channels include the online channel and the offline channel. Online Sales Channel: The company’s online sales channel consists of its e-commerce channel, online marketplaces, and online advertising. Its e-commerce channel includes a network of e-commerce Websites, supported by its call-center sales agents. The company also sells its products through online marketplaces, including third-party auction sites and shopping portals, which provide the company with access to additional consumer segments. The majority of its online sales are to individual consumers. Offline Sales Channel: The company sells and delivers to collision repair shops from Carson, California and Chesapeake, Virginia warehouse facilities. It also markets Kool-Vue products nationwide to auto parts wholesale distributors and serves consumers by operating a retail outlet store in LaSalle, Illinois. Seasonality The company experiences higher sales of body parts in winter months when inclement weather and hazardous road conditions typically result in more automobile collisions. Engine parts and performance parts and accessories experience higher sales in the summer months when consumers have more time to undertake elective projects to maintain and enhance the performance of their automobiles and the warmer weather during that time is conducive for such projects. Competition The company’s competitors include national auto parts retailers, such as Advance Auto Parts, AutoZone, Napa Auto Parts, CarQuest, O’Reilly Automotive, and Pep Boys; online marketplaces, such as Amazon.com and sellers on eBay; and wholesale aftermarket auto parts distributors, such as LKQ Corporation. History U.S. Auto Parts Network, Inc. was founded in 1995. The company was incorporated in 1995 in Delaware.
