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

Full-Year 2012 Operating Results

Gross profit in 2012 was $109.8 million, compared to $88.6 million in 2011. The increase in gross profit was attributable to $21.2 million of gross profit from Central Parking's operations. The Company's gross profit for 2012, excluding gross profit attributable to Central Parking's operations, was flat as compared to 2011, primarily due to the full-year impact of several large contract retrades in 2011 and an unfavorable swing of $1.5 million in insurance reserve estimates for 2012 compared to 2011. On a same location basis, excluding Central Parking's operations and the impact of the large contract retrades, gross profit was up 2% from 2011.

G&A expenses for 2012 and 2011 were $86.7 million and $48.3 million, respectively. Excluding $28.0 million of merger and integration related costs in 2012, G&A expenses were $58.6 million, including $14.5 million from Central Parking's operations. Excluding Central Parking's operations and all merger and integration related costs, 2012 G&A expenses were $44.1 million, a 2% decrease, compared to 2011 G&A expenses of $45.2 million excluding $3.1 million of merger and acquisition related costs.

Net income attributable to the Company for 2012 was $3.9 million, or $0.22 per share, compared to $17.9 million or $1.12 per share for 2011. Merger adjusted net income attributable to the Company would have been $20.1 million, or $1.27 per share, compared to 2011 net income of $19.8 million, or $1.23 per share, excluding merger and acquisition related expenses. Merger-adjusted net income attributable to the Company for 2012 assumes a 38.1% tax rate for 2012, the same as the effective tax rate for 2011.

The Company generated $4.0 million of free cash flow, compared to $28.9 million in 2011, as costs incurred in 2012 for merger and integration significantly impacted free cash flow.
