Fourth Quarter Operating ResultsGross 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%.
