LKQ Corp. Offers Fast Growth At A Solid Valuation

Julie C - Friday, March 02, 2012

LKQ Corp. (LKQX) was incorporated in 1998 and went public in October 2003. Since that time, the company represents the quintessential example of a recession-proof business. LKQ Corp. provides replacement parts and components to repair wrecked cars and light trucks. It has primarily operated in the United States, but recently announced that it has purchased Euro Car Parts, the largest distributor of automotive after-market parts in the United Kingdom. Although LKQ Corp. has derived significant growth through a combination of acquisitions and organic growth, this acquisition provides an opportunity for significant additional growth as it expands beyond the U.S. market.

Three years later,

after the Sabols had established a brisk business selling the league

films of itself, Ed Sabol persuaded it to buy his company, originally named Blair Motion Pictures, after his daughter and Steve’s sister. The deal called for him and Steve to run it. Ed was the resident until 1987, when Steve,

who had the titles of creative director and co-founder, succeeded him.

“I may have started it, but he has been the engineer

behind it,” Ed Sabol said of his son in a 2008 interview. “He comes up with these great ideas and is a great student of the game.” Of the sports Emmy Awards won by NFL Films, 107, including two this year, Steve Sabol was

cited on more than a third. The films have impressed Hollywood. The director Ron Howard said in an interview with The New York Times in 2000 that NFL Films highlight reels had an effect on how movies are made, “particularly

not the first company to make game films, but its innovations are widely considered to have elevated the genre. Mr. Sabol put more cameras on the field than others had and used them to provide new perspectives. One, called the mole,

was a hand-held camera that roamed the sideline in search of spectacular close-ups. He used ifferent speeds in different cameras.He used film, not tape, for greater clarity. (This year, NFL Films made its first all-digital

feature, on the Miami Dolphinstraining camp.) He interspersed

the smacks and whistles with the sounds of a 60-piece orchestra playing Tchaikovsky. He highlighted emotional themes like comebacks and underdogs. He persuaded players and coaches to wear microphones. He made some of the first funny films of players’ “bloopers.”
And he wrote scripts, often rhyming ones.
