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

The field organization integration has been substantially completed. All actions necessary to achieve the projected 2013 cost synergies have been taken, as duplicate or overlapping roles have been eliminated or modified. The combined operating team is working well together, client retention has remained strong and the Company continues to win significant new business.

The process of integrating the Companies' support office platforms and processes is on track. Development of the software conversion programs is continuing as the Company prepares to commence its formal conversion program. The conversion, which will be implemented in geographically-based phases, remains on schedule to begin in July 2013.

Strategic analysis and planning regarding the Company's long-term branding strategy commenced promptly upon the merger's closing. The Company expects to announce its new brand strategy in the second quarter of 2013.

Marc Baumann, the Company's Chief Financial Officer and President of Urban Operations, stated, "We're extremely pleased with the integration progress made so far. The high level of engagement and enthusiasm shown by all members of our team, whether in the field or support office, has contributed not only to the significant empirical progress we've made, but also to the wonderful spirit and collegiality displayed throughout the process. In addition, we've nearly completed our determination of the impact of Central Parking's closing net debt and working capital balances on the total purchase consideration under the merger agreement's adjustment mechanism."

2013 Outlook

Based on the Company's 2012 results and expectations for the coming year, the Company is initiating 2013 full-year earnings per share guidance in the range of $0.75 to $0.85, which excludes expected 2013 merger and integration related costs of $5.5 million, or $0.15 per share. The Company estimates that $17 million of G&A, representing $0.47 per share, will be eliminated during 2014 and 2015, an increase of $6 million over previous estimates, resulting in total net post-merger synergies of $26 million by the end of 2015. The Company continues to believe that the merger will be accretive to earnings per share by 2015.
