Standard Parking Corporation Announces Fourth Quarter And Full-Year 2012 Results

Fourth Quarter Operating Results

Gross profit in the 2012 fourth quarter was $41.7 million, compared to $22.2 million in the 2011 fourth quarter. The increase in gross profit was primarily due to $21.2 million of gross profit from Central Parking's operations. Excluding gross profit attributable to Central Parking's operations, gross profit decreased by $1.7 million compared to the same period of 2011. This decrease was attributable primarily to several large contract retrades in 2011 that took effect in 2012, and an unfavorable swing in insurance reserve estimates for the fourth quarter of 2012 compared to the same period in 2011, in addition to the impact of the National Hockey League lock-out. On a same location basis, excluding Central Parking's operations and the impact of the contract retrades, fourth quarter gross profit was up 1%.

Fourth quarter general and administrative (G&A) expenses for 2012 and 2011 were $42.9 million and $13.7 million, respectively. Excluding $17.4 million of merger and integration related costs in the 2012 fourth quarter, G&A expenses were $25.5 million, of which Central Parking's operations represented $14.5 million. Excluding G&A from Central Parking's operations and all merger and integration related costs, fourth quarter 2012 G&A expenses were $10.9 million, a 4% decrease compared to fourth quarter 2011 G&A expenses of $11.4 million excluding $2.3 million of merger-related costs.

Net loss attributable to the Company for the 2012 fourth quarter was ($4.8) million, or ($0.22) per share, compared to net income attributable to the Company of $3.6 million and $0.23 per share for the 2011 fourth quarter. Merger-adjusted net income attributable to the Company was $4.1 million, or $0.26 per share, compared to net income of $5.1 million, or $0.32 per share, for the fourth quarter of 2011 excluding merger-related expenses. Merger-adjusted net income attributable to the Company for the 2012 fourth quarter assumes a 34.2% tax rate for 2012, which was the actual effective tax rate for the 2011 fourth quarter.
