    interstate net lease oreilly auto parts

    O'Reilly Automotive Inc. ORLY

    O'Reilly Automotive Inc is a specialty retailer of automotive after-market parts, tools, supplies, equipment and accessories in the United States, selling its products to both do-it-yourself customers and professional service providers.


    In 2008, O'Reilly ORLY solidified its position as one of the top national auto-part retailers by acquiring CSK Auto. This transaction added over 1,300 western stores to O'Reilly's store base, and substantially strengthened the firm's scale advantages. Now, O'Reilly operates over 4,000 stores throughout the United States and made inroads into the Northeast (the one remaining hole in its domestic store base), through its acquisition of VIP Auto at the end of 2012. Unlike its retail focused peers, O'Reilly's roots and core expertise lies in the commercial, or do-it-for-me, or DIFM, market. This market is more fragmented than its do-it-yourself counterpart, and we expect O'Reilly will be one of the industry's main consolidators, due to its commercial expertise and distribution infrastructure lead.


    With over 4,000 stores, O'Reilly is the second-largest auto part retailer in the United States. After acquiring over 1,300 CSK Auto stores in 2008, O'Reilly gained a major presence in the Western market. The firm now has a strong nationwide footprint, and has recently gained a small toehold in the Northeast through its acquisition of VIP Auto. O'Reilly started as a commercially focused retailer but has since adopted a dual market approach that also targets do-it-yourself retail customers.


    interstate net lease auto zone

    AutoZone Inc.


    AutoZone, Inc. (AutoZone) is a retailer and a distributor of automotive replacement parts and accessories in the United States. As of August 25, 2012, AutoZone operated 4,685 stores in the United States, including Puerto Rico, and 321 in Mexico. The Company operates in two segments: Auto Parts Stores and Other. The Auto Parts Stores segment is a retailer and distributor of automotive parts and accessories through the Company’s 5,006 stores in the United States, Puerto Rico, and Mexico. The Other category reflects business activities that are not separately reportable, including ALLDATA which produces, sells and maintains diagnostic and repair information software used in the automotive repair industry, and e-Commerce, which includes direct sales to customers through www.autozone.com. During the fiscal year ended August 25, 2012 (fiscal 2012), the Company opened 193 stores and relocated 10 stores.


    AutoZone has been the most efficient operator among the specialized auto parts retailers. The firm has benefited from superior scale and "sticky" customers who rely on the retailer when purchasing maintenance and failure auto parts. Because of the necessity of auto parts transactions, demand has been consistent throughout numerous economic cycles, allowing AutoZone to generate steady returns on invested capital well above 20% for the majority of the last decade. We believe AutoZone's scale and valuable proprietary brands, combined with the firm's industry-leading position in the attractive DIY auto parts retail market, create a narrow economic moat that should allow the company to generate excess economic returns over the foreseeable future.


    AutoZone is the leading after-market auto part retailer for do-it-yourself customers in the United States. The DIY market targets older vehicles that are no longer covered by manufacturer warranties. As of November 2012, AutoZone operated over 4,700 domestic, 320 Mexican, and 1 Brazilian store. The firm also runs more than 3,000 commercial centers in domestic outlets, which deliver auto parts to professional garages, dealers, and service stations. AutoZone owns and sells ALLDATA, automotive repair software, to professional repair shops.
