Penske Automotive Group, Inc. (NYSE: PAG), an international transportation services company, announced today that adjusted fourth quarter 2014 income from continuing operations increased 13.8% to $71.0 million, and adjusted earnings per share increased 14.5% to $0.79 when compared to the same period last year.  As more fully described in the attached tables, adjusted income from continuing operations and adjusted earnings per share exclude a non-cash $16.0 million, or $0.10 per share, gain on an investment.  On a reported basis, fourth quarter income from continuing operations increased 29.3% to $80.7 million and related earnings per share from continuing operations increased 29.0% to $0.89.

"Our retail automotive dealership business produced another strong quarter across both the U.S. and the U.K.," said Penske Automotive Group Chairman Roger S. Penske.  "Same-store retail revenue increased 8.3% and we had a 90-basis-point increase in our service and parts gross margin to 59.7%, which helped drive another record quarter for our business.  Strong results across the retail automotive dealership business and our U.S.-based commercial vehicle dealership business were partially offset by our Australian operations which were impacted by challenging economic conditions and post-acquisition restructuring costs within the Power Systems business."

Total revenue increased 16.3% to $4.4 billion. The revenue increase was driven by a 10.5% increase in total retail unit sales, including a 6.8% increase on a same-store basis. Gross profit improved 15.4% to $659 million while operating income increased 11.6% to $119 million.

For the twelve months ended December 31, 2014, total revenue increased 18.9% to $17.2 billion.  The revenue increase was driven by an 11.0% increase in total retail unit sales, including 6.7% on a same-store basis.  For the year, same-store retail revenue growth was 11.7%.   Adjusted twelve months 2014 income from continuing operations increased 18.9% to $295.7 million, and related adjusted earnings per share increased 18.9% to $3.27, when compared to the same period last year.  As more fully described in the attached tables, adjusted income from continuing operations and adjusted earnings per share exclude a non-cash $16.0 million, or $0.10 per share, gain on an investment.  Reported income from continuing operations increased 22.7% to $305.4 million and related earnings per share increased 22.9% to $3.38 per share when compared to the same period last year.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Caution Concerning Forward Looking Statements

These forward-looking statements should be evaluated together with additional information about Penske Automotive's business, markets, conditions and other uncertainties, which could affect Penske Automotive's future performance.
