REPORT OF INDEPENDENT REGISTERED PUBLIC ACCOUNTING FIRM

To the Plan Participants and Plan Administrator of

Penske Automotive Group 401(k) Savings and Retirement Plan

 

Opinion on the Financial Statements

We have audited the accompanying statements of net assets available for benefits of Penske Automotive Group 401(k) Savings and Retirement Plan (the “Plan”) as of December 31, 2017 and 2016, the related statement of changes in net assets available for benefits for the year ended December 31, 2017, and the related notes (collectively referred to as the “financial statements”). In our opinion, the financial statements present fairly, in all material respects, the net assets available for benefits of the Plan as of December 31, 2017 and 2016, and the changes in net assets available for benefits for the year ended December 31, 2017, in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

 

Basis for Opinion

 

These financial statements are the responsibility of the Plan’s management.  Our responsibility is to express an opinion on the Plan’s financial statements based on our audits.  We are a public accounting firm registered with the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States) (PCAOB) and are required to be independent with respect to the Plan in accordance with the U.S. federal securities laws and the applicable rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission and the PCAOB. 

 

We conducted our audits in accordance with the standards of the PCAOB.  Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement, whether due to error or fraud.  Our audits included performing procedures to assess the risks of material misstatement of the financial statements, whether due to error or fraud, and performing procedures that respond to those risks.  Such procedures included examining, on a test basis, evidence regarding the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements.  Our audits also included evaluating the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall presentation of the financial statements. We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion.

 

Report on Supplemental Schedule

 

The supplemental schedule of assets (held at end of year) as of December 31, 2017 has been subjected to audit procedures performed in conjunction with the audit of the Plan’s financial statements.  The supplemental schedule is the responsibility of the Plan’s management.  Our audit procedures included determining whether the supplemental schedule reconciles to the financial statements or the underlying accounting and other records, as applicable, and performing procedures to test the completeness and accuracy of the information presented in the supplemental schedule.  In forming our opinion on the supplemental schedule, we evaluated whether the supplemental schedule, including its form and content, is presented in compliance with the Department of Labor’s Rules and Regulations for Reporting and Disclosure under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974.  In our opinion, such schedule is fairly stated, in all material respects, in relation to the financial statements as a whole.

Penske Automotive Group 401(k) Savings and Retirement Plan

Notes to Financial Statements

1. Description of the Plan

(a) General

The following description of the Penske Automotive Group 401(k) Savings and Retirement Plan, as amended through December 31, 2017 (the “Plan”), is provided for general information purposes only. Participants should refer to the Plan document for a more complete description of the Plan.

The Plan is a defined contribution savings plan (401(k) plan) covering all eligible employees of Penske Automotive Group, Inc. (the “Company” or “Plan Sponsor”) and its subsidiaries, including eligible employees of Premier Truck Group (“PTG”), in the United States who elect to participate in the Plan. The Plan is subject to the provisions of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (“ERISA”). The 401(k) Savings and Retirement Plan Committee (the “Committee”) is the designated administrator of the Plan, and has responsibility for reviewing the performance of the Plan’s investments. Certain asset based fees are paid by the Plan participants. Wells Fargo (the “Trustee” or “Recordkeeper”) serves as the trustee and recordkeeper of the Plan. Participants with balances from plans merged into the Plan due to acquisitions by the Plan Sponsor may retain certain rights of such merged plans.

(b) Eligibility

Full-time employees in the United States, and part-time or temporary employees in the United States who are scheduled to complete 1,000 hours of service in a twelve consecutive month period beginning with their date of hire, are eligible to participate in the Plan on the first day of the calendar month following the date they have completed sixty days of service.

(c) Participant Accounts

Individual accounts are maintained by the Recordkeeper for each of the Plan’s participants. Such accounts include the participant’s contributions and related Employer Match Contributions (as defined below), as adjusted by the net investment return on the participant’s holdings. Participant accounts are also charged with recordkeeping administrative fees.

(d) Contributions

Under the provisions of the Plan, participants may elect to defer, through payroll deductions, a portion of their compensation to the Plan in an amount generally from 1% to 20% of gross earnings on a pre-tax basis. Highly compensated employees (“HCEs”) are limited to deferring up to 8% of gross earnings on a pre-tax basis. Such contributions may not exceed Internal Revenue Code 402(g) limitations ($18,000 in 2017). The Plan also permits participants who are 50 or older to make additional contributions (up to $6,000 in 2017). A participant’s elective contributions and any related Employer Match Contributions are invested at the direction of the participant. If a participant does not make such an election, he or she is deemed to have elected to invest in an age-appropriate target retirement fund. 

During 2017, the Plan Sponsor funded discretionary matching contributions at a level of 37.5% of the first 4% of eligible salary for most participants and at a level of 50% of the first 6% of eligible salary for participants of certain subsidiaries (“Employer Match Contributions”). Eligible salary used to determine discretionary matching contributions may not exceed Internal Revenue Code 401(a)(17) limitations ($270,000 in 2017).  Employer Match Contributions are invested based on participant investment elections or in the default investment if the participant did not make an election.

In 2018, the Plan Sponsor elected to increase discretionary matching contributions from 37.5% of the first 4% of eligible salary to 62.5% of the first 4% of eligible salary,  effective January 1, 2018.

During 2017 and 2016, certain HCEs deferred a portion of their compensation in excess of the Plan limit. The Plan intends to refund the excess contributions and has recorded a participant refund payable of $120,146 and $153,909 at December 31, 2017 and 2016, respectively, relating to these excess contributions.

(e) Notes Receivable from Participants

Participants may take loans from their accounts from a minimum of $1,000 up to the lesser of a defined amount or $50,000. Loan terms range from one to five years, or up to fifteen years for the purchase of a primary residence. The loans are collateralized by the balance in the participant’s account and bear interest at a rate commensurate with prevailing rates. Principal and interest are paid ratably through payroll deductions. Repayment of the entire balance is permitted at any time. Participants are limited to having only one loan outstanding at any point in time, and participants are restricted to initiating only one loan in any consecutive twelve-month period.

(f) Vesting

Employee contributions to the Plan vest immediately. Employer Match Contributions vest upon the attainment by the participant of three years of credited service.

(g) Investments

As of December 31, 2017 and 2016 participant investment options consisted primarily of common collective trust funds, employer securities and mutual funds. Participants are generally permitted to change investment options daily.

(h) Payment of Benefits

Upon retirement, death, disability, termination of employment, or attainment of age 59 1/2, the participant or beneficiary may elect to receive a benefit payment in the form of a lump sum distribution. Participants may also make a hardship withdrawal in certain cases of financial need as established by Internal Revenue Service regulations.

(i) Forfeited Accounts

At December 31, 2017 and 2016, forfeited non-vested assets totaled $97,141 and $62,671, respectively, which may be used to pay Plan administration fees and/or Employer Match Contributions. During 2017,  approximately $364,358 of fees and matching contributions were paid by the Plan Sponsor using forfeited amounts.

2. Significant Accounting Policies

(a) Basis of Accounting

The accompanying financial statements are prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”).

(b) Investment Valuation and Income Recognition

The Plan’s investments in Company common stock and mutual funds are stated at fair value as determined by quoted market prices. The Plan’s investments in common collective trust funds are stated at net asset value as determined by the issuer of the funds and based on the fair value of the underlying investments held by the funds, discussed further below. The Plan’s investment in the Wells Fargo Stable Return Fund (the “Fund”) is stated at net asset value and is valued based on the underlying investments in the Fund. The Fund holds synthetic and other fully benefit-responsive guaranteed investment contracts, which are recorded at contract value because they guarantee a minimum rate of return and provide for benefit responsiveness. Contract value represents contributions made to the Fund, plus earnings, less participant withdrawals and administrative expenses. While there are certain Fund and Plan level restrictions that may affect the Fund’s ability to transact at contract value, Plan management believes that the occurrence of events that would cause the Fund to transact at less than contract value are not probable of occurring. 

The Plan’s investments in common collective trust funds are divided into units of participation, as determined daily by the Trustee. The daily value of each unit of participation, or net asset value (“NAV”), is determined by dividing the total fair market value of all assets in the fund by the total number of fund units. Under provisions of the Plan, interest and dividend income and net appreciation or depreciation of the fair value of each investment option are allocated to each Participant’s account based on the change in unit value. There are no restrictions on redemptions or unfunded commitments as of December 31, 2017 and 2016.

Table of Contents

See the supplemental schedule of assets (held at end of year) for the title (investment strategy) of each investment held by the Plan as of December 31, 2017.

Purchases and sales of investments are recorded on a trade date basis.  Dividends are awarded on the ex-dividend date.

(c) Notes Receivable from Participants

Notes receivable from participants are measured at their unpaid principal balance plus any accrued but unpaid interest.

(d) Payment of Benefits

Benefit payments are recorded upon distribution. There were no amounts allocated to accounts of persons who had elected to withdraw from the Plan, but had not yet been paid, at December 31, 2017 and December 31, 2016.

(e) Use of Estimates

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, additions, deductions and the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities in the accompanying financial statements. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

(f) Risks and Uncertainties

The Plan provides for various investment options. The underlying investment securities are exposed to various risks, such as interest rate risk, market risk and credit risk. Due to the level of risk associated with certain investment securities and the level of uncertainty related to changes in the value of investment securities, it is at least reasonably possible that changes in risk factors in the near term could materially affect participants’ account balances and the amounts reported in the statements of net assets available for benefits and the statement of changes in net assets available for benefits.

3. Fair Value Measurements

The Financial Accounting Standards Board has established a single authoritative definition of fair value and has established the following three-tier hierarchy that requires an entity to maximize the use of observable inputs when measuring fair value:

Level 1: Inputs are unadjusted quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities that the reporting entity has the ability to access at the measurement date.

Level 2: Inputs are observable inputs other than quoted (Level 1) prices for similar assets or liabilities, quoted prices in markets that are not active, or other inputs that are observable or can be corroborated by observable market data for substantially the full term of the assets or liabilities.

Level 3: Unobservable inputs that are supported by little or no market activity and that are significant to the fair value of the assets or liabilities.

The availability of observable market data is monitored by the Plan’s management to assess the appropriate classification of financial instruments within the fair value hierarchy. Changes in economic conditions or model-based valuation techniques may require the transfer of financial instruments from one fair value level to another. Plan management evaluates the significance of transfers between levels based upon the nature of the financial instrument and size of the transfer relative to total net assets available for benefits. For the years ended December 31, 2017 and 2016, there were no transfers between levels.

4. Exempt Party-in-Interest Transactions

As of December 31, 2017 and 2016, the Plan (through investments in Penske Automotive Group, Inc. Common Stock) held 739,527 and 691,274 shares, respectively, of Penske Automotive Group, Inc. Common Stock with a cost basis of $27,630,617 and $23,720,835, respectively. The fair value of Penske Automotive Group, Inc. Common Stock held by the Plan was $35,386,367 and  $35,835,644 at December 31, 2017 and 2016, respectively. In addition, certain Plan investments are shares of various funds managed by Wells Fargo, which is the trustee of the Plan, and therefore these investments and their related transactions are considered exempt party-in-interest transactions.

5. Plan Termination

Although it has not expressed any intention to do so, the Company retains the right, if necessary, to terminate the Plan. Any such termination of the Plan would be subject to the provisions of ERISA. In the event of plan termination, participants would become 100% vested in their account balances.

6. Federal Income Tax Status

The Internal Revenue Service (“IRS”) has determined and informed the Company by letter dated March 23, 2016 that the Plan and related trust are designed in accordance with applicable sections of the Internal Revenue Code (“IRC”). The Plan has been amended since requesting the current determination letter. While the plan is subject to IRS review, none have taken place and the Plan Administrator believes that the Plan is designed and is currently being operated in compliance with the applicable requirements of the IRC. Therefore, no provision for income taxes has been included in the Plan’s financial statements.

Accounting principles generally accepted in the United States require plan management to evaluate tax positions taken by the Plan and recognize a tax liability if the Plan has taken an uncertain position that more likely than not would not be sustained upon examination by the IRS. As the Plan is tax-exempt, the Plan Administrator has concluded that as of December 31, 2017 and 2016, there are no uncertain tax positions taken or expected to be taken that would require recognition of a liability (or asset) or disclosure in the financial statements. The Plan is subject to routine audits by taxing jurisdictions; however, there are currently no audits for any tax periods in progress. The Plan Administrator believes the Plan is no longer subject to income tax examinations for years prior to 2014.
