Capital Allocation

"With significant cash flow generation and a healthy balance sheet, AutoNation continues to deploy capital to enhance shareholder returns while further positioning the Company for long-term sustained profitability," added Manley. 

AutoNation today announced it has signed an agreement to acquire Brandon Dodge on Broadway, Colorado Springs Dodge, Pikes Peak Acura and City Auto Plaza, from Moreland Auto Group with approximately $320 million in annual revenue. This transaction is subject to customary terms and conditions, including manufacturer approval, and is expected to close in the fourth quarter of 2022.

In October 2022, AutoNation completed the previously announced acquisition of CIG Financial, an auto finance company headquartered in Irvine, CA. The acquisition of CIG Financial aligns with AutoNation's strategic business model and extends AutoNation's relationship with its Customers throughout the vehicle ownership life cycle.

Additionally, during the third quarter AutoNation opened its twelfth AutoNation USA store in Kennesaw, Georgia. Although the pace of new store openings has been inhibited due in part to the challenging construction market, the expansion of our national footprint remains a core part of our strategy. We currently have two dozen facilities in differing phases of development. Our long-term strategic goal remains to own and operate over 130 AutoNation USA stores from coast to coast.  

During the third quarter of 2022, AutoNation repurchased 3.8 million shares of common stock, or 7% of shares outstanding for an aggregate purchase price of $428 million. Year-to-date through October 25, 2022, AutoNation repurchased 13.6 million shares of common stock, or 22% of the shares outstanding at the beginning of the year, for an aggregate purchase price of $1.5 billion. As of October 25, 2022, AutoNation had approximately 50 million shares outstanding, down from 83 million shares at the end of 2020. AutoNation today announced that the Board of Directors authorized the repurchase of up to an additional $1 billion of AutoNation common stock, bringing the total available authorization to $1.4 billion.

Liquidity and Leverage

As of September 30, 2022, AutoNation had $2.2 billion of liquidity, including $443 million in cash and approximately $1.8 billion of availability under our revolving credit facility. The Company's covenant leverage ratio was 1.5x at quarter-end, or 1.3x net of cash and used floorplan availability. AutoNation had approximately $3.5 billion of non-vehicle debt outstanding as of September 30, 2022.

Segment Results

Segment results(1) for the third quarter 2022 were as follows:
