Selling, general and administrative expenses (“SG&A”) increased from 2016 to 2017 due to a $42.5 million increase from net acquisitions, coupled with a $22.4 million, or 3.9%, increase in same-store SG&A. Excluding the $2.3 million increase related to foreign currency fluctuations, same-store SG&A increased 3.5%. The increase in SG&A is primarily due to an increase in variable personnel expenses as a result of the 10.5% increase in gross profit compared to the prior year. SG&A as a percentage of gross profit was 78.5%, an increase of 40 basis points compared to 78.1% in the prior year. SG&A expenses as a percentage of total revenue was 11.7% and 11.3% in the three months ended September 30, 2017 and 2016, respectively.

Floor plan interest expense increased from 2016 to 2017 due to a $3.9 million, or 32.8%, increase in same-store floor plan interest expense, coupled with a $0.6 million increase from net dealership acquisitions. The overall increase is primarily due to increases in the amounts outstanding under floor plan arrangements, due in part to increased levels of inventory, and increases in applicable rates.
