For the quarter, revenue increased 1.5% to $7.4 billion.

First Quarter 2024 Performance
The Company's financial results for the first quarter of 2024 were driven by a resilient performance in the retail automotive and retail commercial truck segments. Income before income taxes, net income, and income per share, however, were negatively impacted by higher interest costs of $17.4 million, driven primarily by an increase in interest rates and higher inventory levels which increased borrowings under our floorplan arrangements combined with lower equity earnings from the Company's investment in Penske Transportation Solutions ("PTS"). Lower equity earnings from PTS were primarily due to lower commercial rental utilization, lower consumer rental revenue, higher interest rates and average debt balances, and lower gains from the sale of revenue earning vehicles partially offset by improved operating results in full-service leasing and distribution center management when compared to the same period in 2023.

Commenting on the Company's financial results, Chair and CEO Roger Penske said, "Our retail automotive service and parts revenue grew 9% to a quarterly record of $746 million. During the quarter, we experienced a recovery across our used vehicle retail automotive operations with profitability improving sequentially by $428 per unit retailed. Further, I was pleased with our focus on controlling costs as selling, general, and administrative expenses as a percentage of gross profit improved by 30 basis points sequentially to 70.7%."

Retail Automotive Dealerships
For the three months ended March 31, 2024, total new and used units delivered increased 4% to 126,864, and total retail automotive revenue increased 3% to $6.5 billion. Same-store new and used units delivered increased 1% to 122,060, and same-store revenue decreased 1%. Same-store service and parts revenue and gross profit increased 5%. Total retail automotive gross profit decreased 1% to $1.1 billion, including a 4% decrease on a same-store basis.

Retail Commercial Truck Dealerships
As of March 31, 2024, Premier Truck Group operated 43 North American retail commercial truck locations. Retail unit sales declined 12% largely due to the lack of availability of inventory in the first quarter of 2024 when compared to the same period last year. For the three months ended March 31, 2024, revenue was $791.8 million compared to $895.6 million in the same period last year while a stronger sales mix drove a 190 bps increase in gross margin. Earnings before taxes was $50.5 million compared to $57.1 million in the same period in 2023.

Penske Transportation Solutions Investment
Penske Transportation Solutions ("PTS") is a leading provider of full-service truck leasing, truck rental, contract maintenance, and logistics services. PTS operates a managed fleet with over 442,000 trucks, tractors, and trailers under lease, rental and/or maintenance contracts. Penske Automotive Group has a 28.9% ownership interest in PTS and accounts for its ownership interest using the equity method of accounting. For the three months ended March 31, 2024, the Company recorded $32.5 million in earnings compared to $80.8 million for the same period in 2023.

Corporate Development, Capital Allocation, Liquidity, and Leverage
During the three months ended March 31, 2024, we repurchased 0.2 million shares of common stock for approximately $32.9 million under our securities repurchase program. As of March 31, 2024, $182.6 million remained available under the Company's existing repurchase authority. As of March 31, 2024, Penske Automotive had $1.7 billion in liquidity, including $117 million in cash and $1.6 billion of availability under its U.S. and international credit agreements. The Company's leverage ratio at March 31, 2024 was 1.1x.

As previously announced, in January 2024, the Company completed the acquisition of Rybrook Group Limited consisting of 16 retail automotive franchises in the United Kingdom, including four BMW franchises, four MINI franchises, four Volvo franchises, two Land Rover franchises, one Jaguar franchise, and one Porsche franchise. Three of the BMW locations also retail BMW Motorrad motorcycles. The acquired dealerships represent estimated annualized revenues of approximately $1 billion. We also acquired one Ford dealership and one Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep/Ram dealership in the U.S. Additionally, in April 2024 we signed an agreement to acquire two Porsche dealerships and one Ducati motorcycle dealership in Melbourne, Australia with estimated annualized revenues of approximately $140 million.
