FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., July 27, 2011 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- AutoNation, Inc. (NYSE: AN),America's largest automotive retailer, today reported 2011 second quarter net income from continuing operations of $73 million, or $0.49 per share, compared to adjusted net income from continuing operations of $62 million, or $0.38 per share, for the same period in the prior year, a 29% improvement on a per-share basis. Adjusted net income from continuing operations for the second quarter of 2010 excluded debt refinancing costs of $12 million after-tax, or $0.07 per share, as disclosed in the attached financial tables. On a GAAP basis, second quarter 2010 net income from continuing operations was $50 million, or $0.31 per share. There were no adjusting items for the second quarter of 2011.

2011 second quarter revenue totaled $3.3 billion, compared to $3.1 billion in the year-ago period, an increase of 8%, driven primarily by higher retail new and used vehicle average selling prices. AutoNation's new vehicle unit sales decreased 4% on a same store basis and were flat overall. Based on CNW Research data, in the second quarter, total U.S. industry new retail vehicle unit sales decreased 2%.

AutoNation's 2011 second quarter retail used vehicle revenue increased 12%. Parts and service revenue increased 5%, and finance and insurance revenue increased 12% compared to the 2010 second quarter.

2011 second quarter gross profit totaled $583 million, compared to $529 million in the year-ago period, an increase of 10%, primarily due to an increase in retail new and used vehicle gross profit, as well as an increase in finance and insurance gross profit. Gross profit in the second quarter of 2011 was favorably impacted by $1.4 million related to incentives on premium luxury vehicles previously sold. On a per-vehicle basis, gross profit per new vehicle retailed increased $539 or 26%, while gross profit per used vehicle retailed increased $174 or 11%, as compared to the year-ago period.

Mike Jackson, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said, "We delivered solid double-digit growth in operating income in the second quarter, which was driven by strong new and used vehicle gross profit." Mr. Jackson added, "This quarter we once again demonstrated the strength of our diversified business model, and our ability to react quickly and execute effectively in a changing marketplace."

Commenting on the automotive retail environment, Mr. Jackson added, "We estimate that vehicle shipments from the Japanese manufacturers were approximately 40% below planned levels in the second quarter and that, by September, they will be approximately 10-15% below planned levels. Margins on vehicles from Japanese manufacturers benefitted from constrained supply, and while we believe that they will remain strong in the third quarter, we expect that the improving supply environment will result in lower margins on those vehicles as compared to the second quarter. We believe that the new vehicle sales environment will begin to normalize in the fourth quarter of 2011, and we continue to be optimistic about the long-term recovery for the U.S. auto market."

AutoNation has three operating segments: Domestic, Import, and Premium Luxury. The Domestic segment is comprised of stores that sell vehicles manufactured by General Motors, Ford, and Chrysler; the Import segment is comprised of stores that sell vehicles manufactured primarily by Toyota, Honda, and Nissan; and the Premium Luxury segment is comprised of stores that sell vehicles manufactured primarily by Mercedes, BMW, and Lexus. Segment results for the second quarter were as follows:

  • Domestic - Domestic segment income(2) was $46 million compared to year-ago segment income of $42 million. Second quarter Domestic retail new vehicle unit sales increased 14%.
  • Import - Import segment income(2) was $66 million compared to year-ago segment income of $52 million. Second quarter Import retail new vehicle unit sales decreased 12%.
  • Premium Luxury - Premium Luxury segment income(2) was $57 million compared to year-ago segment income of $49 million. Second quarter Premium Luxury retail new vehicle unit sales increased 10%.

For the six-month period ended June 30, 2011, the Company reported net income from continuing operations of $144 million, or $0.95 per share, compared to adjusted net income from continuing operations of $121 million, or $0.72 per share for the same period in the prior year, an improvement of 32% on a per-share basis.
