Third Quarter Operating ResultsGross profit in the third quarter of 2013 was $40.1 million, compared to second quarter 2013 gross profit of $46.0 million, a decrease of 13%. The decrease in sequential quarter gross profit was primarily attributable to the timing of a health insurance dividend that was recorded in the second quarter of 2013, an unfavorable swing in insurance reserve estimates related to prior years, volatility at some of the Company's leased locations and an unfavorable sequential quarter fluctuation in deficiency payments at Bradley Airport as a result of a large repayment to the Company in the second quarter and a large payment by the Company in the third quarter. The $18.7 million year-over-year increase in gross profit was primarily attributable to the addition of Central Parking operations.
