Rush Enterprises, Inc. Reports Third Quarter Results And Announces Agreement To Purchase Ohio Dealerships

"In addition to growth through acquisition and facility expansion, we believe our network of Rush Truck Centers also provides us a unique opportunity for growth in our industry. We remain committed to expanding our service solutions, to meet the evolving needs our customers, whatever they may be," explained Rusty Rush.

Operations

Aftermarket services accounted for more than 65% of the Company's total gross profits for the third quarter of 2012. Third quarter parts, service and body shop revenues increased by 15%, compared to third quarter 2011. This resulted in another record aftermarket revenue quarter despite fewer working days during the period. Third quarter absorption ratio was 113%.

"Our commitment to providing the innovative solutions to serve our customers' unique business needs continues to drive our record setting parts, service and body shop revenues," Rusty Rush said. "These solutions include our fleet of mobile service units, mobile technicians working in our customers' shops, dedicated natural gas service bays with natural gas certified technicians along with our Custom Vehicle Solutions' up-fitting and body installation services. Service needs resulting from aging fleet vehicles along with continued activity in the energy sector also contributed to record aftermarket revenues this quarter," Rusty Rush added. The Company expects parts, service and body shop operations could experience a sequential decline in fourth quarter revenues due to reduced seasonal activity and fewer new truck deliveries.

Rush's Class 4-7 medium-duty truck sales increased 16% over the third quarter of 2011, outpacing the U. S. Class 4-7 market, which increased approximately 11% during the same time period. Rush's Class 4-7 market share accounted for 4.1% of the total U.S. market during the third quarter. "This continues to be the result of medium-duty truck sales to national fleets across the country, solid execution by our Peterbilt, Navistar, Hino, Isuzu and Ford locations and our ability to quickly deliver vehicles to our vocational customers," explained Rusty Rush.
