James A. Wilhelm, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, "2012 was a momentous year in our Company's history. Following the close of our merger at the start of the fourth quarter, we have been diligently working on the smooth integration of the two companies. I am pleased to report that we have made significant progress in the integration process and remain on track with our internal goals and timelines. A merger of this kind could have proved a distraction, but it is gratifying to see that our dedicated team has maintained focus on our business, which is shown by our solid financial results during the quarter and consistently high client retention rates."

Fourth Quarter Operating Results

Gross profit in the 2012 fourth quarter was $41.7 million, compared to $22.2 million in the 2011 fourth quarter. The increase in gross profit was primarily due to $21.2 million of gross profit from Central Parking's operations. Excluding gross profit attributable to Central Parking's operations, gross profit decreased by $1.7 million compared to the same period of 2011. This decrease was attributable primarily to several large contract retrades in 2011 that took effect in 2012, and an unfavorable swing in insurance reserve estimates for the fourth quarter of 2012 compared to the same period in 2011, in addition to the impact of the National Hockey League lock-out. On a same location basis, excluding Central Parking's operations and the impact of the contract retrades, fourth quarter gross profit was up 1%.

Fourth quarter general and administrative (G&A) expenses for 2012 and 2011 were $42.9 million and $13.7 million, respectively. Excluding $17.4 million of merger and integration related costs in the 2012 fourth quarter, G&A expenses were $25.5 million, of which Central Parking's operations represented $14.5 million. Excluding G&A from Central Parking's operations and all merger and integration related costs, fourth quarter 2012 G&A expenses were $10.9 million, a 4% decrease compared to fourth quarter 2011 G&A expenses of $11.4 million excluding $2.3 million of merger-related costs.

Net loss attributable to the Company for the 2012 fourth quarter was ($4.8) million, or ($0.22) per share, compared to net income attributable to the Company of $3.6 million and $0.23 per share for the 2011 fourth quarter. Merger-adjusted net income attributable to the Company was $4.1 million, or $0.26 per share, compared to net income of $5.1 million, or $0.32 per share, for the fourth quarter of 2011 excluding merger-related expenses. Merger-adjusted net income attributable to the Company for the 2012 fourth quarter assumes a 34.2% tax rate for 2012, which was the actual effective tax rate for the 2011 fourth quarter.

Full-Year 2012 Operating Results

Gross profit in 2012 was $109.8 million, compared to $88.6 million in 2011. The increase in gross profit was attributable to $21.2 million of gross profit from Central Parking's operations. The Company's gross profit for 2012, excluding gross profit attributable to Central Parking's operations, was flat as compared to 2011, primarily due to the full-year impact of several large contract retrades in 2011 and an unfavorable swing of $1.5 million in insurance reserve estimates for 2012 compared to 2011. On a same location basis, excluding Central Parking's operations and the impact of the large contract retrades, gross profit was up 2% from 2011.

G&A expenses for 2012 and 2011 were $86.7 million and $48.3 million, respectively. Excluding $28.0 million of merger and integration related costs in 2012, G&A expenses were $58.6 million, including $14.5 million from Central Parking's operations. Excluding Central Parking's operations and all merger and integration related costs, 2012 G&A expenses were $44.1 million, a 2% decrease, compared to 2011 G&A expenses of $45.2 million excluding $3.1 million of merger and acquisition related costs.

Net income attributable to the Company for 2012 was $3.9 million, or $0.22 per share, compared to $17.9 million or $1.12 per share for 2011. Merger adjusted net income attributable to the Company would have been $20.1 million, or $1.27 per share, compared to 2011 net income of $19.8 million, or $1.23 per share, excluding merger and acquisition related expenses. Merger-adjusted net income attributable to the Company for 2012 assumes a 38.1% tax rate for 2012, the same as the effective tax rate for 2011.

The Company generated $4.0 million of free cash flow, compared to $28.9 million in 2011, as costs incurred in 2012 for merger and integration significantly impacted free cash flow.

Central Parking Integration

The integration of Central Parking and Standard Parking commenced immediately upon the merger's closing on October 2, 2012. The integration focuses on two aspects: field operations and support office platforms.

The field organization integration has been substantially completed. All actions necessary to achieve the projected 2013 cost synergies have been taken, as duplicate or overlapping roles have been eliminated or modified. The combined operating team is working well together, client retention has remained strong and the Company continues to win significant new business.

The process of integrating the Companies' support office platforms and processes is on track. Development of the software conversion programs is continuing as the Company prepares to commence its formal conversion program. The conversion, which will be implemented in geographically-based phases, remains on schedule to begin in July 2013.

Strategic analysis and planning regarding the Company's long-term branding strategy commenced promptly upon the merger's closing. The Company expects to announce its new brand strategy in the second quarter of 2013.

Marc Baumann, the Company's Chief Financial Officer and President of Urban Operations, stated, "We're extremely pleased with the integration progress made so far. The high level of engagement and enthusiasm shown by all members of our team, whether in the field or support office, has contributed not only to the significant empirical progress we've made, but also to the wonderful spirit and collegiality displayed throughout the process. In addition, we've nearly completed our determination of the impact of Central Parking's closing net debt and working capital balances on the total purchase consideration under the merger agreement's adjustment mechanism."

2013 Outlook

Based on the Company's 2012 results and expectations for the coming year, the Company is initiating 2013 full-year earnings per share guidance in the range of $0.75 to $0.85, which excludes expected 2013 merger and integration related costs of $5.5 million, or $0.15 per share. The Company estimates that $17 million of G&A, representing $0.47 per share, will be eliminated during 2014 and 2015, an increase of $6 million over previous estimates, resulting in total net post-merger synergies of $26 million by the end of 2015. The Company continues to believe that the merger will be accretive to earnings per share by 2015.

The Company expects 2013 free cash flow in excess of $30 million after the payment of $17 million for liabilities accrued as of December 31, 2012 for severance, divestiture and legal costs.

Reflecting confidence in the Company's growth strategies, the Company has established its long-term financial goals to achieve a 5% compound annual growth rate in gross profit, and to drive G&A as a percentage of gross profit to 45% by 2015.

Reflecting on the Company's near and long-term goals, Mr. Wilhelm said, "2013 will be another important transitional year for the business as we move towards completing the integration, adopting a long-term brand strategy and achieving organic growth. At the same time, we're devoting human and capital resources to leveraging our scale for the longer term with enhanced marketing, advertising and consumer-friendly transactional capabilities. We will also place a focused emphasis on continuing development of so-called 'P3' initiatives involving public and private partnerships, which Standard Parking and Central Parking each pursued successfully prior to the merger. Based on our work to date, the long-term prospects for the Company are consistent with the vision and objectives anticipated when we signed the merger agreement a year ago. Building upon this, the opportunities for the Company to generate substantial additional shareholder value are strong."

For a detailed discussion of factors that could affect the Company's future operating results, please see the Company's filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including the disclosures under "Risk Factors" in those filings. Except as expressly required by the federal securities laws, the Company undertakes no obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, changed circumstances or future events or for any other reason.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement its consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with GAAP, the Company considers certain financial measures that are not prepared in accordance with GAAP, including merger-adjusted gross profit, G&A excluding merger and integration related costs, merger-adjusted G&A, merger-adjusted net income, merger-adjusted net income per share (also referred to as merger-adjusted EPS), EBITDA and merger-adjusted EBITDA, and free cash flow.

The Company uses these non-GAAP financial measures, in addition to GAAP financial measures, to evaluate its operating and financial performance and to compare such performance to that of prior periods and to the performance of its competitors. Additionally, the Company uses these non-GAAP financial measures in making operational and financial decisions and in the Company's budgeting and planning process. The Company believes that providing these non-GAAP financial measures to investors helps investors evaluate the Company's operating performance, profitability and business trends in a way that is consistent with how management evaluates such performance and consistent with guidance previously provided by the Company. Merger-adjusted gross profit, G&A excluding merger and integration related costs, merger-adjusted G&A, merger-adjusted net income, merger-adjusted net income per share, EBITDA and merger-adjusted EBITDA, free cash flow and merger-adjusted free cash flow should not be considered as alternatives to, or more meaningful indicators of, the Company's operating performance than gross profit, G&A, net income or net income per share as determined in accordance with GAAP. In addition, the Company's calculation of such non-GAAP measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of another company.

Merger-adjusted gross profit. Merger-adjusted gross profit is a non-GAAP financial measure of gross profit adjusted to exclude Central Parking's gross profits. This non-GAAP measure is used to evaluate the Company's gross profit without the impact of the gross profit from Central Parking's operations, as the management analyzes the Company's performance both with and without the impact of this recent merger. The Company believes this measure helps management and investors assess how well the Company has used its internal resources to expand its profits.

G&A excluding merger and integration related costs; merger-adjusted G&A. G&A excluding merger and integration related costs is a non-GAAP financial measure of general and administrative (G&A) expenses excluding merger and integration related costs. Merger-adjusted G&A further adjusts G&A excluding merger and integration related costs by excluding G&A expenses attributable to the operations of Central Parking. The Company believes these financial measures provide useful information regarding the underlying operating performance of the Company and improves comparability of financial results because it excludes the impact of the Central Parking merger.

Merger-adjusted net income; merger-adjusted net income per share; EBITDA and merger-adjusted EBITDA. The financial items that have been excluded from the Company's GAAP net income to calculate merger-adjusted net income and merger-adjusted net income per share are (i) merger and integration related costs, (ii) amortization of merger related intangible assets, (iii) additional interest expense attributable to the Central Parking merger (representing the Company's determination of interest expense incurred by it during the applicable period above the interest expense that would have been incurred had the Central Parking merger not have occurred) and (iv) the operating results of Central Parking. Additionally, the Company subtracts an assumed provision for income taxes to arrive at merger-adjusted net income. The Company assumed an income tax rate equal to the Company's actual effective tax rate for the comparable prior year period.

Merger-adjusted net income per share (also referred to as merger-adjusted EPS) is a non-GAAP financial measure that represents merger-adjusted net income divided by the weighted average number of diluted shares or basic shares, as applicable, outstanding during the applicable period assuming no shares were issued in connection with the Central Parking merger.

EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure that represents GAAP net income attributable to the Company before (i) interest expense net of interest income, (ii) provision for income taxes, and (iii) depreciation and amortization. Merger-adjusted EBITDA further adjusts EBITDA by excluding merger and integration related costs and the operating results of Central Parking.

The Company has presented EBITDA because it believes EBITDA is helpful for evaluating the operating performance of the Company's core business without regard to potential disruptions as well as a useful financial indicator of the Company's ability to service debt. Additionally, the Company believes that EBITDA is a common alternative measure of operating performance used by investors and other external users. The Company has presented merger-adjusted net income, merger-adjusted net income per share and merger-adjusted EBITDA to allow more direct comparisons of its financial results to historical operations. The Company does not routinely engage in transactions of the magnitude of the Central Parking merger, and consequently does not regularly incur transaction-related costs with correlative size; therefore, the Company believes presenting such non-GAAP financial items, which exclude merger-related costs and Central Parking's operating results, provides investors with additional measures of the Company's underlying operating performance, including measures regarding organic changes in the continuing operations of the Company. Excluding Central Parking's operating results and associated merger-related costs from the Company's GAAP measures, helps management and the Company's investors evaluate the Company's ability to utilize its existing internal processes and ultimately the ability to use those processes to generate long-term value from the acquired assets.

Free cash flow: The Company defines free cash flow as net cash from operating activities, less cash used for investing activities (exclusive of acquisitions), less distribution to noncontrolling interest, plus the effect of exchange rate changes on cash and cash equivalents. The Company believes that the presentation of free cash flow provides useful information regarding its recurring cash provided by operating activities after certain expenditures. It also demonstrates the Company's ability to execute its financial strategy. The Company's presentation of free cash flow has material limitations. The Company's free cash flow does not represent its cash flow available for discretionary expenditures because it excludes certain expenditures that are required or to which the Company has committed, such as debt service requirements. The Company's definition of free cash flow may not be comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other companies.

For reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures, see the accompanying tables to this release.
