Digital Engagement Drives Sustainable Advantage
The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated a shift in consumer behavior towards digital engagement. Our goal is to provide a peerless customer experience, while empowering the customer to engage with us on their terms.  Our AutoNation Express online selling tools enable customers to buy and sell vehicles online, and our store-to-door delivery option allows customers to completely avoid visiting a showroom if they choose.  Through our digital capabilities and physical stores, we have empowered the customer to do as much or as little of the transaction online as they choose.

AutoNation is also investing in data and analytics.  The Company's proprietary Equity Mining Tool leverages its millions of sales and service transactions into a central system that enables business development. The Equity Mining Tool automatically appraises customers' current vehicles and identifies a newer replacement vehicle they can upgrade into for a similar or lower payment. Additionally, it shows household vehicles, service history, propensity to purchase and Customer Financial Service product history. AutoNation's Equity Mining Tool is leveraged in our dealerships' sales process and direct marketing campaigns.

AutoNation's proprietary Equity Mining Tool was foundational for the recently launched Customer 360 application. Customer 360 provides a more complete picture of our customers, enabling us to provide a customized experience for each of our customers, while strengthening our relationship and identifying additional sales and service opportunities.

Expense Control
Over the last two years, AutoNation has taken an aggressive approach to streamline the business. The Company's continued investment in digital created greater efficiencies, including position eliminations and a reduction in advertising expenses. Additionally, in 2018, AutoNation implemented a restructuring plan that reduced costs annually and consolidated its region infrastructure from three to two. This year, the Company made further reductions to headcount, advertising, and discretionary spending.  These efforts allowed us to deliver adjusted SG&A as a percentage of gross profit of 68.2% in the second quarter of 2020, which represents a 520-basis point improvement compared to the second quarter of 2018. AutoNation will continue to target operating below 69% SG&A as a percentage of gross profit on a long-term basis.

Capital Allocation
AutoNation is prioritizing its investment in capital expenditures towards opportunities with the greatest return potential. The Company today announced the planned expansion of its AutoNation USA stand-alone pre-owned vehicle sales and service centers. AutoNation plans to build at least 20 additional stores over the next three years and will provide details of the roll-out schedule in the third quarter of 2020. The stores will allow the Company to continue providing customers a peerless experience with its 'One Price' model and its customer-centric selling processes. This expansion will also allow the Company to leverage its brand, scale, 'We'll Buy Your Car' sourcing initiative, and digital capabilities to capture a larger portion of the used vehicle market.
