CHICAGO, April 25, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- LKQ Corporation (Nasdaq:LKQ) today reported record revenue for the first quarter of 2013 of $1.20 billion, an increase of 15.9% as compared to $1.03 billion in the first quarter of 2012. Net income for the first quarter of 2013 was $84.6 million, an increase of 4.4% as compared to $81.0 million for the same period of 2012. Diluted earnings per share of $0.28 for the first quarter ended March 31, 2013 increased 3.7% from $0.27 for the first quarter of 2012. The Company noted that the first quarter 2013 diluted earnings per share included a loss equal to $0.01 per share resulting from restructuring and acquisition related expenses and the change in fair value of contingent consideration liabilities. Earnings per share in the first quarter of 2012 included a gain equal to $0.02 per share that resulted from a favorable legal settlement.

"I was particularly pleased with our results this quarter because, adjusting for the legal settlement in 2012 and other charges, diluted earnings per share grew by 16% compared to the prior year quarter. We also delivered strong organic revenue growth for parts and services of 9.6% despite the quarter having one less selling day in the US and two less selling days in the UK," stated Robert L. Wagman, President and Chief Executive Officer of LKQ Corporation. "I am also proud of our ability to deliver bottom line growth, with the first quarter of 2013 producing record earnings."
