2012 fourth quarter revenue totaled $4.2 billion, an increase of 13%, driven primarily by stronger retail new vehicle unit sales.  AutoNation's retail new vehicle unit sales increased 17% on a same store basis and were up 18% overall. Based on CNW Research data, in the fourth quarter of 2012, total U.S. industry retail new vehicle unit sales increased 13%.

Launch of AutoNation Brand
AutoNation announced today that it will be marketing its 210 Domestic and Import franchises across the country under the AutoNation brand.  The brand transition involves 23 manufacturer brands and will roll out beginning February 1, 2013 in South Florida and will be completed in all markets by the end of the second quarter. Commenting on the branding initiative, Mike Jackson, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said, "The launch of the AutoNation brand unifies us under one flag, AutoNation, rather than as local market brands.  We have worked to provide a peerless customer experience across the enterprise.  AutoNation is a brand that stands for leadership, transparency, and peerless customer care. This is an incredibly important moment for us as a company and has the full support of our manufacturer partners who approved the change to the AutoNation brand. Since my arrival we have laid a foundation for this transition by investing more than $3.7 billion in facilities, developing best practices in our stores and Shared Service Center and completing strategic acquisitions across the country while focusing on the customer as our number one priority."

Commenting on the quarterly results, Mr. Jackson said, "We are very pleased with our strong year-over-year growth across all areas of our business.  We have delivered two consecutive years of over 30% growth in earnings per share, and this quarter we set another record for the highest ever annual and quarterly adjusted EPS from continuing operations." Mr. Jackson added, "We are looking forward to a robust new vehicle selling environment in 2013, as consumers enjoy an unprecedented array of attractive product options and continued access to affordable credit. We are expecting industry new vehicle sales to be approximately mid-15 million units in 2013." 

Share Repurchase
During the fourth quarter of 2012, AutoNation repurchased 1.3 million shares for an aggregate purchase price of $49 million, at an average price of $39.21 per share.  For the full year ended December 31, 2012, AutoNation repurchased 16.6 million shares for an aggregate purchase price of $581 million, at an average price of $34.89 per share.  AutoNation has $319 million remaining Board authorization for share repurchase.

Acquisitions of Texas Stores
During the fourth quarter, AutoNation also completed the acquisitions of Boardwalk Audi, Boardwalk Porsche, Boardwalk Volkswagen, McKinney Volkswagen, Park Cities Volkswagen, and Spring Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram.  Together, the stores sold approximately 14,000 new and used retail units in 2012 with approximately $590 million of revenue.

--------------------------------------------------

(1)   As compared to adjusted EPS from continuing operations in prior periods.

(2)  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, Nissan, and Hyundai; and the Premium Luxury segment is comprised of stores that sell vehicles manufactured primarily by Mercedes-Benz, BMW, Lexus, and Audi.  As of March 31, 2012, we revised the basis of segmentation for our Import and Premium Luxury segments to reclassify our Audi franchises from the Import segment to the Premium Luxury segment.  In connection with this change, we have reclassified historical amounts to conform to our current segment presentation.

(3)  Segment income for each of our segments is defined as operating income less floorplan interest expense.

As of March 31, 2012, we revised the basis of segmentation for our Import and Premium Luxury segments to reclassify our Audi franchises








from the Import segment to the Premium Luxury segment. In connection with this change, we have reclassified historical amounts to conform to








our current segment presentation. We reclassified revenue of $50.9 million and segment income of $3.6 million during the three months ended








December 31, 2011, and revenue of $187.7 million and segment income of $13.2 million during the twelve months ended December 31, 2011








related to the five Audi franchises we held during these periods.
