Compared to the fourth quarter of 2012, which included an additional week of operations, we reported the following results:

Excluding the impact of the additional week in 2012, which provided approximately $21.5 million of additional revenues and approximately $4.1 million of additional income before income taxes, we reported the following results:

  • Fourth quarter 2013 revenues of $387.9 million represented a 12.2% increase
  • Fourth quarter 2013 net income of $18.8 million represented a 27.7% increase

Full year 2013 net income was $69.5 million, compared to 2012 net income of $61.7 million, an increase of $7.9 million or 12.8%.
