PHILADELPHIA—September 19, 2007
Will Restate its Supplemental Guarantor Information Footnote. No Impact on Consolidated Balance Sheets or Statements of Operations
The Pep Boys - Manny, Moe & Jack (NYSE: "PBY"), the nation's leading automotive aftermarket retail and service chain, announced that its Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended August 4, 2007 contains a corrected presentation of its accounting for certain inter-company subsidiary investments in its Supplemental Guarantor Information footnote.
The Form 10-Q also included certain other immaterial corrections to the Company's financial statements. For a complete description, please see the Form 10-Q publicly available through a link on the Company's Web site at www.pepboys.com.
The corrected errors have no impact, for any previously completed period, on the Company's (i) consolidated balance sheets, (ii) consolidated statements of operations, (iii) net cash flows from operating activities, investing activities or financing activities included in the consolidated statements of cash flows or (iv) the balance sheets, statements of operations or statements of cash flows for the Non-Subsidiary Guarantors or the Consolidated entities which are included in Supplemental Guarantor Information note.
The Company will amend the appropriate filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission to include restated financial statements for the three-year period ended February 3, 2007 and for the first quarter of fiscal 2007 to reflect these corrections. As a result of the restatement, the financial statements contained in the Company's Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended February 3, 2007 and the Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended May 5, 2007, previously filed with the SEC, should no longer be relied upon.
