STANDARD PARKING CORPORATION

NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED INTERIM FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

(In thousands except for share and per share data, unaudited)

 

1. Basis of Presentation

 

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements of Standard Parking Corporation have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States for interim financial information and with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and notes required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States for complete financial statements.

 

In the opinion of management, all adjustments (consisting only of adjustments of a normal and recurring nature) considered necessary for a fair presentation of the financial position and results of operations have been included. Operating results for the three month period ended March 31, 2012 are not necessarily indicative of the results that might be expected for any other interim period or the fiscal year ending December 31, 2012. The financial statements presented in this report should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and footnotes thereto included in our 2011 Annual Report on Form 10-K filed March 15, 2012.

 

Principles of Consolidation

 

The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company, its wholly owned subsidiaries, and variable interest entities in which the Company is the primary beneficiary. Noncontrolling interest recorded in the consolidated statement of income is the interest in consolidated VIEs not controlled by the Company. We have interest in thirteen joint ventures and one limited liability company. The thirteen joint ventures each operate between one and thirty parking facilities. The limited liability company was formed to collect and distribute parking facility data for a fee. Of the fourteen variable interest entities, seven are consolidated into our financial statements, and seven are single purpose entities where the Company is not the primary beneficiary and therefore the Company does not control these entities as power is shared. Investments in variable interest entities where the Company is not the primary beneficiary are accounted for under the equity method. All significant intercompany profits, transactions and balances have been eliminated in consolidation.

 

Financial Instruments

 

The carrying values of cash and cash equivalents, notes and accounts receivable and accounts payable are reasonable estimates of their fair value due to the short-term nature of these financial instruments. Long-term debt, including capital lease obligations, has a carrying value that approximates fair value because these instruments bear interest at market rates.

 

Interest Rate Caps

 

We do not enter into derivative instruments for any purpose other than cash flow hedging purposes.

 

On February 22, 2010, we entered into interest rate cap agreements with Wells Fargo Bank N.A. (“Wells Fargo”) and Fifth Third Bank (“Fifth Third”), allowing us to limit our exposure on a portion of our borrowings under our senior credit facility (“Rate Cap Transactions”). Pursuant to two separate letter agreements between the Company and Wells Fargo and Fifth Third, respectively, we will receive payments from Wells Fargo and Fifth Third each quarterly period to the extent that the prevailing three month LIBOR during that period exceeds our cap rate of 3.25%. The Rate Cap Transactions became effective March 31, 2010, and settle each quarter on a date that is intended to coincide with our quarterly interest payment dates under our senior credit facility. The Rate Cap Transactions cap our LIBOR interest rate on a notional amount of $50,000 at 3.25% for a total of 39 months. These Rate Cap Transactions are classified as a cash flow hedge, and we calculate the effectiveness of the hedge on a quarterly basis. The ineffective portion of the cash flow hedge is recognized in current period earnings as an increase of interest expense. The fair value of the interest rate cap at March 31, 2012 is $2 and is included in prepaid expenses.

 

2. Stock-Based Compensation

 

We measure share-based compensation expense at the grant date, based on the fair value of the award, and the expense is recognized over the requisite employee service period (the vesting period) for awards expected to vest (considering estimated forfeitures).

 

7



Table of Contents

 

The Company has an amended and restated Long-Term Incentive Plan that was adopted in conjunction with our initial public offering. On April 22, 2008, our shareholders approved an amendment to our Long-Term Incentive Plan that increased the maximum number of shares of common stock available for awards under the Long-Term Incentive Plan from 2,000,000 to 2,175,000 and extended the Plan’s termination date. The Plan now terminates twenty years from the date of such approval, or April 22, 2028. Forfeited and expired options under the Plan become generally available for reissuance. At March 31, 2012, 121,493 shares remained available for award under the Plan.

 

Stock Options and Grants

 

We use the Black-Scholes option pricing model to estimate the fair value of each option grant as of the date of grant. The volatilities are based on the 90-day historical volatility of our common stock as of the grant date. The risk free interest rate is based on zero-coupon U.S. government issues with a remaining term equal to the expected life of the option. For options granted prior to 2008, the expected life for options was calculated using the simplified method. The simplified method was calculated as the vesting term plus the contractual term divided by two.

 

There were no options granted during the three months ended March 30, 2012 and 2011.

 

The Company recognized no stock-based compensation expense related to stock options for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011, as all options previously granted were fully vested. As of March 31, 2012, there were no unrecognized compensation costs related to unvested options.

 

Restricted Stock Units

 

In March 2008, the Company’s Compensation Committee and the Board of Directors authorized a one-time grant of 750,000 restricted stock units that subsequently were awarded to members of our senior management team on July 1, 2008. In November 2008, an additional 5,000 restricted stock units were awarded. The restricted stock units vest primarily in one-third installments on each of the tenth, eleventh and twelfth year anniversaries of the grant date. The restricted stock unit agreements provide for accelerated vesting upon the recipient reaching their retirement age.

 

The fair value of restricted stock units is determined using the fair value of our common stock on the date of the grant, and compensation expense is recognized over the vesting period. In accordance with the guidance related to share-based payments, we estimated forfeitures at the time of the grant and revise those estimates in subsequent periods if actual forfeitures differ from those estimates. We use historical data to estimate pre-vesting forfeitures and record stock-based compensation expense only for those awards that are expected to vest.

 

During the first three months of 2012, 104,000 restricted stock units vested and no restricted stock units were forfeited.

 

The Company recognized $361 and $496 of stock-based compensation expense related to the restricted stock units for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011, respectively, which is included in general and administrative expenses. As of March 31, 2012, there was $5,716 of unrecognized stock-based compensation costs, net of estimated forfeitures, related to the restricted stock units that are expected to be recognized over a weighted average remaining period of approximately 6.6 years.

 

3. Net Income Per Common Share

 

Companies are required to present basic and diluted earnings per share. Basic net income per share is computed by dividing net income by the weighted daily average number of shares of common stock outstanding during the period. Diluted net income per share is based upon the weighted daily average number of shares of common stock outstanding for the period plus dilutive potential common shares, including stock options and restricted stock units using the treasury-stock method.

There are no additional securities that could dilute basic earnings per share in the future that were not included in the computation of diluted earnings per share, other than those disclosed.

 

4. Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements

 

In September 2011, the FASB issued updated accounting guidance related to testing goodwill for impairment. The amendments provide entities with the option of performing a qualitative assessment before performing the first step of the two-step impairment test. If entities determine, on the basis of qualitative factors, it is not more likely than not that the fair value of the reporting unit is less than or greater than the carrying amount, then performing the two-step impairment test would be unnecessary. However, if an entity concludes otherwise, then it is required to perform the first step of the two-step impairment test by calculating the fair value of the reporting unit and comparing the fair value with the carrying amount of the reporting unit. If the carrying amount of a reporting unit exceeds its fair value, then the entity is required to perform the second step of the goodwill impairment test to measure the amount of the impairment loss, if any. The amendment also provides entities with the option to bypass the qualitative assessment for any reporting unit in any period and proceed directly to the first step of the two-step impairment test. This guidance is effective for interim and annual periods beginning after December 15, 2011. We test for impairment annually during the fourth quarter of the fiscal year. Although the Company has not yet performed the annual impairment test for fiscal year 2012, we do not believe that its adoption will have a material effect on the Company’s financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

 

On January 1, 2012, we adopted the updated accounting guidance related to the presentation of comprehensive income. This accounting update eliminates the option to present the components of other comprehensive income as part of the statement of shareholders’ equity. Instead, comprehensive income must be reported in either a single continuous statement of comprehensive income, which contains two sections, net income and other comprehensive income, or in two separate but consecutive statements. The adoption of this amendment did not have a material effect on our Consolidated Financial Statements as the amendment impacts presentation only; we have elected to present the components of total comprehensive income and components of net income in two separate consecutive statements.

 

On January 1, 2012, we adopted the amended provisions of fair value measurement and disclosure requirements. The guidance amends certain accounting and disclosure requirements related to fair value measurements to ensure that fair value has the same meaning in U.S. GAAP and in IFRS and that their respective fair value measurement and disclosure requirements are the same. This amendment changes certain fair value measurement principles and enhances disclosure requirements, particularly for level 3 fair value measurements. See Note 14 of the Notes to Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements for disclosures related to fair value measurements.

Cost of contracts represents the contractual rights associated with providing parking services at a managed or leased facility. Cost consists of either capitalized payments made to third parties or the value ascribed to contracts acquired through acquisition. Cost of contracts is amortized over the estimated life of the contracts, including anticipated renewals and terminations.

 

The balance of cost of contracts is comprised of the following:

Agreement

 

We entered into a 25-year agreement with the State of Connecticut that expires on April 6, 2025, under which we operate the surface parking and 3,500 garage parking spaces at Bradley International Airport located in the Hartford, Connecticut metropolitan area. The Company manages the facility for which it is expected to receive a management fee.

 

The parking garage was financed on April 6, 2000 through the issuance of $53,800 of State of Connecticut special facility revenue bonds, representing $47,700 non-taxable Series A bonds and a separate taxable issuance of $6,100 Series B bonds. The Series B bonds were retired on July 1, 2006 according to the terms of the indenture. The Bradley agreement provides that we deposit with a trustee for the bondholders all gross revenues collected from operations of the surface and garage parking, and from these gross revenues, the trustee pays debt service on the special facility revenue bonds outstanding, operating and capital maintenance expenses of the surface and garage parking facilities excluding our management fee discussed below, and specific annual guaranteed minimum payments to the State. Principal and interest on the Bradley special facility revenue bonds increase from approximately $3,600 in lease year 2002 to approximately $4,500 in lease year 2025. Annual guaranteed minimum payments to the State will increase from approximately $8,300 in lease year 2002 to approximately $13,200 in lease year 2024. The annual minimum guaranteed payment to the State by the trustee for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011 was $2,567 and $2,514, respectively.

 

All of the cash flow from the parking facilities is pledged to the security of the special facility revenue bonds and is collected and deposited with the bond trustee. Each month the bond trustee makes certain required monthly distributions, which are characterized as “Guaranteed Payments.” To the extent the monthly gross receipts generated by the parking facilities are not sufficient for the trustee to make the required Guaranteed Payments; we are obligated to deliver the deficiency amount to the trustee. Additionally, the Guaranteed Payments are required to be paid before we are reimbursed for deficiency payments or management fees.

 

The following is the list of Guaranteed Payments:

 

·             Garage and surface operating expenses,

 

·             Principal and interest on the special facility revenue bonds,

 

·             Trustee expenses,

 

·             Major maintenance and capital improvement deposits, and

 

·             State Minimum Guarantee.

 

However, to the extent there is a cash surplus in any month during the term of the lease, we have the right to be repaid the principal amount of any and all deficiency payments previously made, together with actual interest expenses and a premium, not to exceed 10% of the initial deficiency payment. We calculate and record interest income and premium income in the period the associated deficiency payment is received from the trustee.

 

Deficiency Payments

 

To the extent that monthly gross receipts are not sufficient for the trustee to make the required payments, we are obligated pursuant to our agreement to deliver the deficiency amount to the trustee within three business days of being notified. We are responsible for these deficiency payments regardless of the amount of utilization for the Bradley parking facilities. The deficiency payments represent contingent interest bearing advances to the trustee to cover operating cash flow requirements. To the extent sufficient funds are available in the appropriate fund; the trustee is then directed by the State to reimburse us for deficiency payments up to the amount of the calculated surplus.

 

In the three months ended March 31, 2012, we made deficiency payments of $779 and we did not record or receive any interest and premium income related to deficiency repayments from the trustee. In the three months ended March 31, 2011, we made deficiency payments of $550 and we did not record or receive any interest and premium income related to deficiency repayments from the trustee. There was no receivable from the trustee for interest and premium income related to deficiency repayments as of March 31, 2012 and 2011.

 

11



Table of Contents

 

The deficiency payments, if any, are recorded as a receivable by us for which we are reimbursed from time to time as provided in the trust agreement. As of March 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011, we have a receivable of $14,186 and $13,407, respectively, compromised of cumulative deficiency payments to the trustee, net of reimbursements. We believe these advances to be fully recoverable and therefore have not recorded a valuation allowance for them. We do not guarantee the payment of any principal or interest on any debt obligations of the State of Connecticut or the trustee.

 

The Construction, Financing and Operating Special Facility Lease Agreement, which governs reimbursement of Guarantor Payments, places no time restriction or limits on our right to reimbursement.

 

Compensation

 

In addition to the recovery of certain general and administrative expenses incurred, our agreement provides for an annual management fee payment that is based on three operating profit tiers calculated for each year during the term of the agreement. The management fee is further apportioned 60% to us and 40% to an un-affiliated entity. To the extent that funds are available for the trustee to make a distribution, the annual management fee is paid when sufficient cash is paid after the Guaranteed Payments (as defined in our agreement), and after the repayment of all deficiency payments, including accrued interest and premium. However, our right to the management fee accrues each year during the term of the agreement and is paid when sufficient cash is available for the trustee to make a distribution.

 

The annual management fee is paid after the repayment of all deficiency payments, including accrued interest and premium. Therefore, due to the existence and length of time for repayment of the deficiency amounts to the Company, no management fees have been recognized. Management fees will be recognized in accordance with SAB 104 when “collectability is reasonably assured.”

 

Cumulative management fees of $5,550 have not been recognized as of March 31, 2012 and no management fee income was recognized during the three months ending March 31, 2012 and 2011.

Senior Credit Facility

 

On July 15, 2008, we amended and restated our credit facility.

 

The $210,000 revolving senior credit facility will expire June 29, 2013. In addition, the revolving senior credit facility includes a letter of credit sub-facility with a sublimit of $50,000 and a swing line sub-facility with a sublimit of $10,000. The $50,000 letter of credit sub-facility does not limit the maximum actual borrowings on the revolving senior credit facility.

 

This revolving senior credit facility bears interest, at our option, at either (1) LIBOR plus an applicable LIBOR margin of between 2.00% and 3.50% depending on the ratio of our total funded indebtedness to our EBITDA from time to time (“Total Debt Ratio”) or (2) the Base Rate (as defined below) plus an applicable Base Rate Margin of between 0.50% and 2.00% depending on our Total Debt Ratio. We may elect interest periods of one, two, three or nine months for LIBOR based borrowings. The Base Rate is the greater of (i) the rate publicly announced from time to time by Bank of America, N.A. as its “prime rate”, or (ii) the overnight federal funds rate plus 0.50%.

 

Certain financial covenants limit the Company’s capacity to fully draw on its $210,000 revolving credit facility. Our senior credit facility includes a fixed charge coverage ratio covenant, a total debt to EBITDA ratio covenant, a limit on our ability to incur additional indebtedness, issue preferred stock or pay dividends, and certain other restrictions on our activities. We are required to repay borrowings under our senior credit facility out of the proceeds of future issuances of debt or equity securities and asset sales, subject to certain customary exceptions. Our senior credit facility is secured by substantially all of our assets and all assets acquired in the future (including a pledge of 100% of the stock of our existing and future domestic

 

12



Table of Contents

 

guarantor subsidiaries and 65% of the stock of our existing and future foreign subsidiaries).

 

We are in compliance with all of our financial covenants as of March 31, 2012.

 

The weighted average interest rate on our senior credit facility at March 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011 was 2.5%. The rate includes all outstanding LIBOR contracts, interest rate cap effect and letters of credit. The weighted average interest rate on outstanding borrowings, not including letters of credit, was 2.6% at March 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011.

 

At March 31, 2012, we had $17,823 of letters of credit outstanding under the senior credit facility, borrowings against the senior credit facility aggregated $86,700, and we had $44,381 available under the senior credit facility.

 

We have entered into capital leases and other various financing agreements, which were used for the purchase of equipment.

 

10. Business Unit Segment Information

 

An operating segment is defined as a component of an enterprise that engages in business activities from which it may earn revenue and incur expenses, and about which separate financial information is regularly evaluated by our chief operating decision maker, in deciding how to allocate resources. Our chief operating decision maker is the Company’s President and Chief Executive Officer.

 

Each of the operating segments is directly responsible for revenue and expenses related to their operations including direct regional administrative costs. Finance, information technology, human resources, and legal are shared functions that are not allocated back to the four operating segments. The CODM assesses the performance of each operating segment using information about its revenue and operating income (loss) before interest, taxes, and depreciation and amortization, but does not evaluate segments using discrete asset information. There are no inter-segment transactions and the Company does not allocate interest and other income, interest expense, depreciation and amortization or taxes to operating segments. The accounting policies for segment reporting are the same as for the Company as a whole.

 

Our business is managed based on regions administered by executive vice presidents. The following is a summary of revenues (excluding reimbursed management contract revenue) and gross profit by regions for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011. Information related to prior periods has been recast to conform to the current region alignment.

 

The Company has provided this business unit segment information for all comparable prior periods. Segment information is summarized as follows (in thousands):

12. Income Taxes

 

For the three months ended March 31, 2012, the Company recognized income tax expense of $1,528 on pre-tax earnings of $3,796 compared to $2,479 income tax expense on pre-tax earnings of $6,344 for the three months ended March 31, 2011. Income tax expense is based on a projected effective tax rate of approximately 40.3% for the three months ended March 31, 2012 compared to approximately 39.1% for the three months ended March 31, 2011. The Company’s effective tax rate increased due to the expiration of the Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC) Program and other similar tax credit programs on December 31, 2011.

 

As of March 31, 2012, the Company has not identified any uncertain tax positions that would have a material impact on the Company’s financial position. The Company recognizes potential interest and penalties related to uncertain tax positions, if any, in income tax expense.

 

The tax years that remain subject to examination for the Company’s major tax jurisdictions at March 31, 2012 are shown below:

13. Legal Proceedings

 

We are subject to litigation in the normal course of our business. The outcomes of legal proceedings and claims brought against us and other loss contingencies are subject to significant uncertainty. We accrue a charge against income when our management determines that it is probable that an asset has been impaired or a liability has been incurred and the amount of loss can be reasonably estimated. In addition, we accrue for the authoritative judgments or assertions made against us by government agencies at the time of their rendering regardless of our intent to appeal. In determining the appropriate accounting for loss contingencies, we consider the likelihood of loss or impairment of an asset or the incurrence of a liability, as well as our ability to reasonably estimate the amount of loss. We regularly evaluate current information available to us to determine whether an accrual should be established or adjusted. Estimating the probability that a loss will occur and estimating the amount of a loss or a range of loss involves significant judgment.

 

14. Fair Value Measurement

 

The Company applies the accounting standards for fair value measurements and disclosures for its financial assets and financial liabilities. The guidance requires disclosures about assets and liabilities measured at fair value. The Company’s financial assets relate to the interest rate cap of $2 and the Company’s financial liabilities relate to contingent earn-out payments of $5,171 as of March 31, 2012.

 

The accounting guidance for fair value measurements and disclosures includes a fair value hierarchy that is intended to increase consistency and comparability in fair value measurements and related disclosures. The fair value hierarchy is based on observable or unobservable inputs to valuation techniques that are used to measure fair value. Observable inputs reflect assumptions market participants would use in pricing an asset or liability based on market data obtained from independent sources while unobservable inputs reflect a reporting entity’s pricing based upon its own market assumptions. The fair value hierarchy consists of the following three levels:

 

15



Table of Contents

 

·             Level 1: Inputs are quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.

 

·             Level 2: Inputs are quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities in an active market, quoted prices for identical or similar assets or liabilities in markets that are not active, and inputs other than quoted prices that are observable and market-corroborated inputs, which are derived principally from or corroborated by observable market data.

 

·             Level 3: Inputs that are derived from valuation techniques in which one or more significant inputs or value drivers are unobservable.

 

The significant inputs used to derive the fair value of the contingent earn-out amounts due to seller include financial forecasts of future operating results, the probability of reaching the forecast and the associated discount rate. The probability of the contingent consideration ranges from 95% to 10%, with a weighted average discount rate of 12%. The following table sets forth the Company’s financial assets and liabilities measured at fair value on a recurring basis and the basis of measurement at March 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011:

For the three months ended March 31, 2012, the Company recorded adjustments to the original contingent consideration obligation recorded upon the acquisition of Gameday Management Group U.S and Expert Parking. The adjustments were the result of using revised forecasts and updated fair value measurements that adjusted the Company’s potential earn-out payments related to the purchase of this business.

 

For the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011, the Company recognized a benefit of $169 and $117, respectively, which is included in general and administrative expenses in the statement of income due to the change in fair value measurements using level three valuation techniques.

 

The carrying and estimated fair values of the Company’s financial instruments at March 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011 were as follows:

The carrying values of cash and cash equivalents approximate their fair value due to the short-term nature of these financial instruments. Long-term debt has a carrying value that approximates fair value because these instruments bear interest at variable market rates. The fair value of the capital lease and obligations on Seller notes and other obligations were estimated to not be materially different from the carrying amount.

 

15. Stock Repurchases

 

In June 2011, our Board of Directors authorized us to repurchase shares of our common stock, on the open market, up to $20,000 in aggregate and cancelled a prior authorization from 2008.

 

There were no stock repurchases for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011. As of March 31, 2012, $12,467 remained available for stock repurchases under the June 2011 authorization by the Board of Directors

third anniversary of the closing of the Merger, to the extent not used to satisfy the Central Stockholders’ indemnity obligations that may arise under the Merger Agreement (the “Cash Consideration” and together with the Stock Consideration, the “Merger Consideration”).

 

Commitment Letter

 

Bank of America, N.A., Wells Fargo Bank, N.A., and JPMorgan Chase Bank, together with certain other financial institutions (collectively, the “Lenders”), have provided a senior debt commitment letter and related joinders, each dated February 28, 2012, to provide the Company with $450,000 in senior secured credit facilities consisting of (i) a $200,000 five year revolving credit facility and (ii) a $250,000 term loan facility. In conjunction with the Merger, the Company will assume approximately $210,000 of Central’s debt, net of cash acquired, which will be repaid at closing using the proceeds of the $450,000 senior credit facilities. In addition, the proceeds from these borrowings will be used by the Company to finance in part the Merger, the costs and expenses related to the Merger and the ongoing working capital and other general corporate purposes of the Company. The obligations of the Lenders to provide the debt financing under the senior debt commitment letter is subject to a number of conditions that the Company believes are customary for financings of this type. The termination date for the commitments under the senior debt commitment letter is 180 days, subject to extension by the Lenders.

Merger Agreement

 

On February 28, 2012, the Company, KCPC Holdings, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Central”) and the ultimate parent of Central Parking Corporation, a Tennessee corporation, Hermitage Merger Sub, Inc., a Delaware corporation and a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company (“Merger Sub”), and Kohlberg CPC Rep, L.L.C, in its capacity as the Stockholders’ Representative, entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Merger Agreement”), providing for the merger of Merger Sub with and into Central, with Central surviving as a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company (the “Merger”).

 

Pursuant to the Merger Agreement and subject to the terms and conditions thereof, at the effective time of the Merger, the stockholders of Central (the “Central Stockholders”) will, in aggregate, be entitled to receive 6,161,334 shares of common stock of the Company (“Company Stock”), subject to reduction under specified circumstances as provided in the Merger Agreement (the “Stock Consideration”). In addition, each Central Stockholder will be entitled to receive a pro rata portion of $27,000 of total cash consideration (subject to adjustment as provided in the Merger Agreement) to be paid on the third anniversary of the closing of the Merger, to the extent not used to satisfy the Central Stockholders’ indemnity obligations that may arise under the Merger Agreement (the “Cash Consideration” and together with the Stock Consideration, the “Merger Consideration”).

 

The Merger Agreement contains customary representations, warranties and covenants of the Company and Central, including, among others, covenants of each of the Company and Central not to engage in certain significant actions without the prior written consent of the other party (e.g., declaring dividends and incurring additional indebtedness).

 

Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, the Central Stockholders have agreed to indemnify the Company for a number of items, including, among others, adverse consequences resulting from breaches of representations, warranties and covenants and certain identified liabilities. These indemnification obligations are in certain cases limited to claims that in the aggregate exceed a specified “deductible” amount and, in the aggregate, do not exceed a specified “cap” amount.

 

Additionally, the Merger Agreement provides that, immediately after the closing of the Merger, the Company will increase the size of the Company’s board of directors (the “Company Board”) from five to eight members and will appoint

individuals designated by the Stockholders’ Representative on behalf of the Central Stockholders to fill those vacancies. Following the Merger, the Stockholders’ Representative (as defined in the Merger Agreement), on behalf of the Central Stockholders, will continue to have rights to designate members to the Company Board in accordance with the Merger Agreement.

 

The Merger Agreement and the other transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement have been approved by each of the Company Board, the board of directors of Central and the Central Stockholders. Additionally, pursuant to NASDAQ listing standards, which require stockholder approval prior to the issuance of securities in connection with the acquisition of stock of another company if the issuance would constitute more than 20% of the total number of shares of common stock outstanding before the issuance, the stockholders of the Company (the “Company Stockholders”) must approve the issuance of Stock Consideration before the Merger and the other transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement can be consummated.

 

As described in the Company’s preliminary proxy statement filed on April 27, 2012, the Company will hold a special meeting at which the Company Stockholders will be asked to consider and vote upon the proposal to approve the issuance of the Stock Consideration in the Merger.

 

In addition to obtaining the approval of the Company Stockholders as described above, the consummation of the Merger is subject to various closing conditions, including, among others, antitrust and other regulatory clearances and the consummation of the financing as discussed below.

 

The Merger Agreement also contains certain termination rights for both the Company and Central, and further provides that, upon termination of the Merger Agreement under specified circumstances, a party would be required to pay the other party’s fees and expenses in an amount not to exceed $6,000 or, in one case, a termination fee of $7,500 payable by the Company to Central.

 

The Merger Agreement provides that, on the closing date of the Merger, the Company will enter into a registration rights agreement (the “Registration Rights Agreement”) with the Central Stockholders which will require the Company to file a shelf registration statement, registering for public sale by the Central Stockholders the Company Stock acquired by them at the closing of the Merger. The Registration Rights Agreement will also provide the Central Stockholders with piggyback registration rights with respect to underwritten public offerings that the Company may effect for its own account or for the benefit of other selling stockholders.

Overview

 

Our Business

 

We manage parking facilities in urban markets and at airports across the United States and in five Canadian provinces. We do not own any facilities, but instead enter into contractual relationships with property owners or managers.

 

20



Table of Contents

 

We operate our clients’ properties through two types of arrangements: management contracts and leases. Under a management contract, we typically receive a base monthly fee for managing the facility, and we may also receive an incentive fee based on the achievement of facility performance objectives. We also receive fees for ancillary services. Typically, all of the underlying revenue and expenses under a standard management contract flow through to our clients rather than to us. However, some management contracts, which are referred to as “reverse” management contracts, usually provide for larger management fees and require us to pay various costs. Under lease arrangements, we generally pay to the property owner either a fixed annual rent, a percentage of gross customer collections or a combination thereof. We collect all revenue under lease arrangements and we are responsible for most operating expenses, but we are typically not responsible for major maintenance, capital expenditures or real estate taxes. Margins for lease contracts vary significantly, not only due to operating performance, but also due to variability of parking rates in different cities and varying space utilization by parking facility type and location. As of March 31, 2012, we operated approximately 91% of our locations under management contracts and approximately 9% of our locations under leases.

 

In evaluating our financial condition and operating performance, management’s primary focus is on our gross profit, total general and administrative expenses and general and administrative expenses as a percentage of our gross profit. Although the underlying economics to us of management contracts and leases are similar, the manner in which we are required to account for them differs. Revenue from leases includes all gross customer collections derived from our leased locations (net of parking tax), whereas revenue from management contracts only includes our contractually agreed upon management fees and amounts attributable to ancillary services. Gross customer collections at facilities under management contracts, therefore, are not included in our revenue. Accordingly, while a change in the proportion of our operating agreements that are structured as leases versus management contracts may cause significant fluctuations in reported revenue and expense of parking services, that change will not artificially affect our gross profit. For example, as of March 31, 2012, we operated approximately 91% of our locations under management contracts, and for the three months ended March 31, 2012, we derived approximately 90% of our gross profit under management contracts. Only approximately 56% of total revenue (excluding reimbursed management contract revenue), however, was from management contracts because under those contracts the revenue collected from parking customers belongs to our clients. Therefore, gross profit and total general and administrative expenses, rather than revenue, are management’s primary focus.

 

General Business Trends

 

We believe that sophisticated commercial real estate developers and property managers and owners recognize the opportunity for parking and related services to be a profit generator rather than a cost center. Often, the parking experience makes both the first and the last impressions on their properties’ tenants and visitors. By outsourcing these services, they are able to capture additional profit by leveraging the unique operational skills and controls that an experienced parking management company can offer. Our ability to consistently deliver a uniformly high level of parking and related services and maximize the profit to our clients improves our ability to win contracts and retain existing locations. Our location retention rate for the twelve-month period ended March 31, 2012 was approximately 91% and did not change compared to the twelve-month period ended March 31, 2011.

 

For the three months ended March 31, 2012 compared to the three months ended March 31, 2011, average gross profit per location increased by 5.2% from $9.5 thousand to $10.0 thousand due primarily to an increase in same location gross profit, as well as gross profit from new business in excess of contract expirations.

 

Summary of Operating Facilities

 

We focus our operations in core markets where a concentration of locations improves customer service levels and operating margins. The following table reflects our facilities operated at the end of the periods indicated:

Revenue

 

We recognize parking services revenue from lease and management contracts as the related services are provided. Substantially all of our revenue comes from the following two sources:

 

·             Parking services revenue—lease contracts. Parking services revenue related to lease contracts consist of all revenue

 

21



Table of Contents

 

received at a leased facility, including parking receipts (net of parking tax), consulting and real estate development fees, gains on sales of contracts and payments for exercising termination rights.

 

·             Parking services revenue—management contracts. Management contract revenue consists of management fees, including both fixed and performance-based fees, and amounts attributable to ancillary services such as accounting, equipment leasing, payments received for exercising termination rights, consulting, developmental fees, gains on sales of contracts, as well as insurance and other value-added services with respect to managed locations. We believe we generally purchase required insurance at lower rates than our clients can obtain on their own because we effectively self-insure for all liability and worker’s compensation claims by maintaining a large per-claim deductible. As a result, we have generated operating income on the insurance provided under our management contracts by focusing on our risk management efforts and controlling losses. Management contract revenue does not include gross customer collections at the managed locations as this revenue belongs to the property owner rather than to us. Management contracts generally provide us with a management fee regardless of the operating performance of the underlying facility.

 

Conversions between type of contracts (lease or management) are typically determined by our client and not us. Although the underlying economics to us of management contracts and leases are similar, the manner in which we account for them differs substantially.

 

Reimbursed Management Contract Revenue

 

Reimbursed management contract revenue consists of the direct reimbursement from the property owner for operating expenses incurred under a management contract, which is reflected in our revenue.

 

Cost of Parking Services

 

Our cost of parking services consists of the following:

 

·             Cost of parking services—lease contracts. The cost of parking services under a lease arrangement consists of contractual rental fees paid to the facility owner and all operating expenses incurred in connection with operating the leased facility. Contractual fees paid to the facility owner are generally based on either a fixed contractual amount or a percentage of gross revenue or a combination thereof. Generally, under a lease arrangement we are not responsible for major capital expenditures or real estate taxes.

 

·             Cost of parking services—management contracts. The cost of parking services under a management contract is generally the responsibility of the facility owner. As a result, these costs are not included in our results of operations. However, our reverse management contracts, which typically provide for larger management fees, do require us to pay for certain costs.

 

Reimbursed Management Contract Expense

 

Reimbursed management contract expense consists of direct reimbursed costs incurred on behalf of property owners under a management contract, which is reflected in our cost of parking services.

 

Gross Profit

 

Gross profit equals our revenue less the cost of generating such revenue. This is the key metric we use to examine our performance because it captures the underlying economic benefit to us of both lease contracts and management contracts.

 

General and Administrative Expenses

 

General and administrative expenses include salaries, wages, payroll taxes, insurance, travel and office related expenses for our headquarters, field offices, supervisory employees, and board of directors.

 

Depreciation and Amortization

 

Depreciation is determined using a straight-line method over the estimated useful lives of the various asset classes or in the case of leasehold improvements, over the initial term of the operating lease or its useful life, whichever is shorter. Intangible assets determined to have finite lives are amortized over their remaining useful life.

Results of Operations

 

Segments

 

An operating segment is defined as a component of an enterprise that engages in business activities from which it may earn revenue and incur expenses, and about which separate financial information is regularly evaluated by our chief operating decision maker, in deciding how to allocate resources. Our chief operating decision maker is our president and chief executive officer.

 

Our business is managed based on regions administered by executive vice presidents. The following is a summary of revenues (excluding reimbursed management contract revenue) by region for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011.

 

Region One encompasses operations in Alabama, Connecticut, Delaware, District of Columbia, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Virginia, and Wisconsin.

 

Region Two encompasses our Canadian operations, event planning and transportation, and our technology-based parking and traffic management systems.

 

Region Three encompasses operations in Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Louisiana, Nevada, Texas, Utah, Washington, and Wyoming.

 

Region Four encompasses all major airport and transportation operations nationwide.

 

Other consists of ancillary revenue that is not specifically identifiable to a region and insurance reserve adjustments related to prior years.

 

The following tables present the material factors that impact our financial statements on an operating segment basis.

Parking services revenue—lease contracts. Lease contract revenue increased $2.3 million, or 6.5%, to $37.5 million for the three months ended March 31, 2012, compared to $35.2 million for the three months ended March 31, 2011. The increase resulted primarily from increases in revenue from new locations, partially offset by decreases in revenue from contract expirations and conversions. Same location revenue for those facilities, which as of March 31, 2012 are the comparative periods for the two years presented, increased 5.9%. The increase in same location revenue was due to increases in short-term parking revenue of $1.7 million, or 7.6%, and increases in monthly parking revenue of $0.3 million, or 2.9%. Revenue associated with contract expirations relates to contracts that expired during the current period.

 

Parking services revenue—management contracts. Management contract revenue increased $2.0 million, or 4.3%, to $48.0 million for the three months ended March 31, 2012, compared to $46.0 million for the three months ended March 31, 2011. The increase resulted primarily from new locations, which was offset by the decrease in revenue from contract expirations. Same locations revenue for those facilities, which as of March 31, 2012 are the comparative periods for the two years presented, increased 4.5%, primarily due to increased fees from reverse management locations and ancillary services.

 

Reimbursed management contract revenue. Reimbursed management contract revenue increased $2.8 million, or 2.8%, to $103.9 million for the three months ended March 31, 2012, compared to $101.1 million for the three months ended March

31, 2011. This increase resulted from additional reimbursements for costs incurred on behalf of owners.

 

Lease contract revenue increased primarily due to new location revenue in regions one, two and three, combined with same location revenue in all four operating regions. This was partially offset by decreases in contract expirations in regions one and three and conversions in region one. Same location revenue increases for the aforementioned regions were primarily due to increases in short-term parking revenue and monthly parking revenue.

 

Management contract revenue increased primarily due to new location revenue in all four operating regions and same location revenue in regions one, two, three and other. This was offset by contract expirations in all four operating regions.  The increases in same location revenue were primarily due to an increase in fees from reverse management locations and ancillary services. For comparability purposes, revenue associated with contract expirations relate to the contracts that expired during the current period.

Cost of parking services—lease contracts. Cost of parking services for lease contracts increased $1.9 million, or 5.7%, to $35.4 million for the three months ended March 31, 2012, compared to $33.5 million for the three months ended March 31, 2011. The increase resulted primarily from increases in costs from new locations, which were offset by a decrease in conversions from management contracts and decreases in contract expirations. Same location costs for those facilities, which as of March 31, 2012 are comparative for the two years presented, increased 5.6%. Same location costs increased $0.2 million due to payroll and payroll-related expenses, $1.9 million due to rent expense, primarily as a result of contingent rental payments on the increase in revenue for same locations, partially offset by a decrease of $0.3 million related to other operating costs.

 

Cost of parking services—management contracts. Cost of parking services for management contracts increased $1.0 million, or 3.6%, to $28.5 million for the three months ended March 31, 2012, compared to $27.5 million for the three months ended March 31, 2011. The increase resulted from increases in costs related to new reverse management locations, which was offset by the decrease in costs from contract expirations. Same location costs for those facilities, which as of March 31, 2012 are the comparative for the two years presented, increased 2.0%. Same location increase in operating expenses for management contracts primarily resulted from increases in costs associated with reverse management contracts and the cost of providing management services.

 

Reimbursed management contract expense. Reimbursed management contract expense increased $2.8 million, or 2.8%, to $103.9 million for the three months ended March 31, 2012, compared to $101.1 million for the three months ended March 31, 2011. This increase resulted from additional reimbursements for costs incurred on behalf of owners.

 

Cost of parking services for lease contracts increased primarily due to new locations in regions one, two and three, combined with same locations in regions one, three and four, which was partially offset by contract expirations in regions one and three and conversion in region one. Same location cost increased primarily due to increases in payroll, payroll related costs, increases in contingent rent payments on the increase in revenue, partially offset by other operating costs.

 

Cost of parking services for management contracts increased in all four operating regions due to new locations, combined with increases in same locations for regions two, three and four. Partially offsetting, were decreases due to contract expirations in all four operating regions and same locations in regions one and other. Same location cost increases primarily resulted from increases in costs associated with reverse management contracts and the cost of providing management services. The other region amounts in same location primarily represent prior year insurance reserve adjustments and costs that are not specifically identifiable to a region.
