How to reach CSK Auto Corporation



We are the largest specialty retailer of automotive parts and accessories in the Western United States and one of the largest such retailers in the United States; based on store count. We have the number one market position in 22 of the 32 geographic markets in which we operate; based on store count. As of December 19; 2005; we operated 1;263 stores in 22 states under four brand names: We offer a broad selection of national brand name; private-label and generic automotive products for domestic and imported cars and light trucks. Our products include new and remanufactured automotive replacement parts; maintenance items and accessories. Our stores average approximately 7;200 square feet in size and typically offer a store specific mix averaging approximately 17;500 stock-keeping units; or SKUs. We also operate a highly efficient network of strategically located depots to provide approximately 75% of our stores an additional 65;000 SKUs on a same-day delivery basis. Through our extensive on-line vendor network; we make available up to an additional 250;000 SKUs on a same-day delivery basis to approximately 75% of our stores and up to 1;000;000 additional SKUs on a next-day delivery basis to substantially all of our stores. We serve both the do-it-yourself (DIY) and the commercial installer; or do-it-for-me (DIFM); markets. The DIY market; which is comprised of consumers who typically repair and maintain vehicles themselves; is the foundation of our business. Sales to the DIY market represented approximately 83% of our net sales for fiscal 2004. The DIFM market is comprised of auto repair professionals; fleet owners; governments and municipalities and is forecast to account for over 72% of the annual sales in the U.S. automotive aftermarket industry in 2005; according to statistics published by the Automotive Aftermarket Industry Association. Sales to the DIFM market represented approximately 17% of our net sales for fiscal 2004. In 1994; we began targeting the DIFM market to leverage our existing store base; fixed costs; inventory and in-store personnel. We believe we are well positioned to effectively and profitably further penetrate the highly fragmented DIFM market because of our sales force dedicated to DIFM customers; experienced in-store sales associates; level of customer service; conveniently located stores; efficient depot delivery network; attractive pricing; and ability to provide timely availability of a broad selection of national brand name products.
