Encore une très bonne année pour cette belle compagnie exceptionnelle :
Mr. Henslee commented on O'Reilly's 2012 full year results by stating, "2012 was another very successful and profitable year for O'Reilly. Our continued focus on managing our working capital, coupled with our focus on profitable growth, resulted in $951 million of free cash flow for the year, representing a 20% increase, on top of very strong 2011 free cash flow of $791 million. For the year, our dedication to excellent customer service and relentless expense control generated a record operating margin of 15.8%, surpassing the goal we established in 2008 of 15% operating margin one full year earlier than we had originally anticipated. As a result of our strong free cash flow and prudent leverage growth, we were able to return $1.4 billion to our shareholders during 2012 by repurchasing over 16 million shares. These repurchased shares, along with our very profitable growth, resulted in a 25% increase in adjusted earnings per share to $4.75, representing four consecutive years of 20% or greater earnings per share growth."
