Fenwick Automotive Products Limited Bankruptcy Filing Expected

LOS ANGELES, June 10, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Motorcar Parts of America, Inc.
(Nasdaq:MPAA) today said it expects the company's separately capitalized
subsidiaries, Fenwick Automotive Products Limited and Introcan ("Fenco"), will
file for bankruptcy.

Fenco is currently being managed by a chief restructuring officer and a board
not affiliated with Motorcar Parts of America, and Fenco will make any
decision as to the timing and process for any bankruptcy proceeding.

"While Fenco had made progress in its transition plans for the undercar
segment since the acquisition, the cost savings and operational efficiencies
were not sufficient for Motorcar Parts to continue its involvement with Fenco
under the current financial structure. Motorcar Parts of America has written
off its investment in Fenco, which will be disclosed in the company's fiscal
2013 year-end results. The separation of the control of Fenco from us will
result in the deconsolidation of Fenco from our financial statements," said
Selwyn Joffe, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Motorcar
Parts of America.

He emphasized that Motorcar Parts of America's rotating electrical base
business continues to be strong. "We expect to report record sales of
approximately $213 million for rotating electrical when the company files its
fiscal 2013 year-end results this month," Joffe said. He noted that the
company's liquidity remains strong.Motorcar Parts of America expects to
report a cash position of approximately $19.0 million, and approximately $18.0
million available under the company's revolving credit facility at March 31,
2013. He added that the company will realize tax benefits as a result of the
losses incurred through Fenco. These benefits will be realized in stages,
based on the availability of refunds from past taxable periods and reductions
in tax payments on future earnings.
