Avis Budget Group Reports First Quarter 2013 Results

Business Segment Discussion

The following discussion of first quarter operating results focuses on revenue and Adjusted EBITDA for each of our operating segments. Revenue and Adjusted EBITDA are expressed in millions.

North America (Consisting of the Company's U.S. car rental operations, Canadian vehicle rental operations and Zipcar business)

  2013 2012 % change
Revenue $1,100 $1,038 6%
Adjusted EBITDA $90 $93 (3%)

Revenue increased 6% primarily due to a 1% increase in volume and a 4% increase in pricing, including an 8% increase in leisure pricing. Adjusted EBITDA decreased 3% primarily due to a 28% increase in per-unit fleet costs largely offset by higher pricing and reduced vehicle-related interest expense. Excluding the acquisition of Zipcar, revenue increased 5% and Adjusted EBITDA decreased 4%. Adjusted EBITDA includes $3 million of restructuring costs in first quarter 2013.                                        

International (Consisting of the Company's international vehicle rental operations)

  2013 2012 % change
Revenue $515 $510 1%
Adjusted EBITDA $14 $22 (36%)

Revenue increased 1% primarily due to the October 2012 acquisition of Apex Car Rentals. Volume increased 2% and pricing declined 4%. Adjusted EBITDA declined $8 million primarily due to lower pricing and inflationary cost increases. Adjusted EBITDA includes $3 million of restructuring costs in first quarter 2013 compared to $7 million in first quarter 2012.
