TA’s net income of $29.9 million for the second quarter of 2012 reflected an improvement of $8.0 million as compared to the net income in the 2011 second quarter. TA’s results also reflected improvement in EBITDAR, which increased by $11.2 million, or 13.5%, over the 2011 second quarter to $94.1 million in the 2012 second quarter. TA’s fuel sales volume decreased by 0.6 million gallons, or 0.1%, in the 2012 second quarter compared to the 2011 second quarter. During the second quarter of 2012, TA experienced a 2.2% decrease in same site fuel sales volume, compared with the second quarter of 2011. TA believes this decrease is a result, in part, of capital projects to replace fuel dispensers and install diesel exhaust fluid dispensers that required TA to take certain fuel dispensers out of service during the 2012 period. Nonfuel revenues for the 2012 second quarter increased $19.2 million, or 5.8%, above the 2011 second quarter. Total gross margin increased $17.5 million, or 6.4% in the 2012 second quarter above the 2011 second quarter. These improved results in the second quarter of 2012 resulted, in large part, from the travel centers acquired or opened since April 1, 2011, increased fuel margin per gallon and increased customer spending for nonfuel products and services in TA’s travel centers.
