Crowley has decided not to stand for re-election to the AutoNation Board and will retire from the AutoNation Board effective upon completion of AutoNation's 2013 Annual Meeting of Stockholders, which is expected to be held in May 2013, so that he may focus on other professional interests.



"It has been an honor and pleasure to have served with the Board of AutoNation," said Mr. Crowley. "I remain a significant shareholder, and I have great confidence that Mike Jackson, his leadership team, and the rest of the Board will continue to improve the business and create value for shareholders."
