KAR Auctions reports $14M quarterly loss

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Used and salvaged vehicle auctioneer KAR Auction Services Inc. said it lost $14.3 million in the second quarter due to the early payoff of debt.

The loss, of 11 cents per share, compared with a profit of $28.6 million, or 21 cents per share, in the April-June period a year ago.

Carmel-based KAR announced in May that it redeemed $450 million worth of notes using a new $1.7 billion, six-year term loan and a $250 million five-year revolving credit facility. Without the costs of premiums to redeem those notes and other charges, KAR said it would have made 32 cents per share, which was in line with Wall Street's estimates.

KAR said revenue was flat at $470.6 million. Analysts polled by FactSet expected revenue of $488 million.

KAR said it adjusted net income of $1.20 to $1.25 per share for the year. Analysts are forecasting $1.22 on that basis.

The company said it expects used car volumes to remain tight through the rest of the year thanks to the auto industry's sharp downturn three years ago.

Shares slipped 29 cents, or 1.8 percent, to $16.41 in extended trading following the release of the earnings report. They finished the regular session up 4 percent, or 70 cents, at $16.70 amid a broad rally on Wall Street.

  1. In reality, Lilly is maintaining profit by cutting costs such as Indiana/US citizen IT workers by a significant amount with their Tata Indian consulting connection, increasing Indian H1B's at Lillys Indiana locations significantly and offshoring to India high paying Indiana jobs to cut costs and increase profit at the expense of U.S. workers.

  2. I think perhaps there is legal precedence here in that the laws were intended for family farms, not pig processing plants on a huge scale. There has to be a way to squash this judges judgment and overrule her dumb judgement. Perhaps she should be required to live in one of those neighbors houses for a month next to the farm to see how she likes it. She is there to protect the people, not the corporations.

  3. http://www.omafra.gov.on.ca/english/engineer/facts/03-111.htm Corporate farms are not farms, they are indeed factories on a huge scale. The amount of waste and unhealthy smells are environmentally unsafe. If they want to do this, they should be forced to buy a boundary around their farm at a premium price to the homeowners and landowners that have to eat, sleep, and live in a cesspool of pig smells. Imagine living in a house that smells like a restroom all the time. Does the state really believe they should take the side of these corporate farms and not protect Indiana citizens. Perhaps justifiable they should force all the management of the farms to live on the farm itself and not live probably far away from there. Would be interesting to investigate the housing locations of those working at and managing the corporate farms.

  4. downtown in the same area as O'malia's. 350 E New York. Not sure that another one could survive. I agree a Target is needed d'town. Downtown Philly even had a 3 story Kmart for its downtown residents.

  5. Indy-area residents... most of you have no idea how AMAZING Aurelio's is. South of Chicago was a cool pizza place... but it pales in comparison to the heavenly thin crust Aurelio's pizza. Their deep dish is pretty good too. My waistline is expanding just thinking about this!
