  • Agreement signed on February 12, 2013 to sell Supply Chain Operation for $97.0 million.

For the year ended December 31, 2012, Vitran posted revenue of $702.9 million or 2.4% increase compared to $686.2 million for the 2011 year. Vitran reported a net loss from continuing operations of $42.6 million, or $2.60 per share for the year ended 2012 compared to net loss from continuing operations of $20.8 million, or $1.27 per share for the year ended 2011.

For the fourth quarter of 2012, Vitran reported consolidated revenue decreased to $164.3 million compared to $172.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2011.

At the end of the fourth quarter of 2010, in accordance with FASB ASC 740-10, Vitran temporarily discontinued recording an income tax recovery and deferred tax asset for its U.S. operations.
