2013 second quarter revenue totaled $4.4 billion, compared to $3.9 billion in the year-ago period, an increase of 13%, driven by stronger performance in all of our business sectors – new vehicles, used vehicles, parts and service, and finance and insurance. AutoNation's retail new vehicle unit sales increased 11% overall and 7% on a same store basis.

Mike Jackson, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said, "We delivered double-digit growth in operating income in the second quarter, driven by year-over-year gross profit growth in all of our business sectors."

Commenting on the automotive retail environment, Mr. Jackson added, "The automotive industry continues to be a bright spot in the U.S. economy. We are particularly excited about our customer care business, where increasing units in operation should continue to support solid growth in the business for the next several years."

AutoNation also announced that Mercedes-Benz has awarded a new franchise to AutoNation in the Atlanta, Georgia market and earlier in the second quarter announced the award of a new Mercedes-Benz franchise in the Tampa, Florida market that is expected to open in early 2015. The new Atlanta franchise, to be constructed by AutoNation, is subject to customary conditions and is expected to open in early 2015. This will be AutoNation's 19th Mercedes-Benz franchise.

During the second quarter of 2013, AutoNation completed the acquisitions of SanTan Honda Superstore and Hyundai of Tempe in the Phoenix market, and Don Davis Toyota Scion in the Dallas market, now operating as AutoNation Honda Chandler, AutoNation Hyundai Tempe, and AutoNation Toyota North Arlington.

Over the previous 12 months, AutoNation has acquired 10 franchises and has been awarded four new franchises by manufacturers. The 2012 annual revenue for the 10 acquired franchises together with the anticipated annual revenue of the newly-awarded franchises, once the stores are fully operational, is approximately $1 billion.

  • Domestic - Domestic segment income(2) was $66 million compared to year-ago segment income of $54 million.
  • Import - Import segment income(2) was $73 million compared to year-ago segment income of $67 million.
  • Premium Luxury - Premium Luxury segment income(2) was $76 million compared to year-ago segment income of $68 million.

For the six-month period ended June 30, 2013, the Company reported net income from continuing operations of $173 million, or $1.41 per share, compared to adjusted net income from continuing operations of $155 million, or $1.21 per share, for the same period in the prior year, an improvement of 17% on a per-share basis. On a GAAP basis, net income from continuing operations for the six-month period ended June 30, 2012 was $153 million, or $1.19 per share. Reconciliations of non-GAAP financial measures are included in the attached financial tables.
