Highlight of Business Operations:

New vehicle retail sales revenue increased $77.5 million, or 5.8%, from 2009 to 2010. The increase is due to a $51.9 million increase from net dealership acquisitions, coupled with a $25.6 million, or 1.9%, increase in same store revenues. The same store revenue increase is due primarily to a $2,839, or 8.8%, increase in average selling prices per unit which increased revenue by $110.5 million, offset by the 6.3% decrease in retail unit sales, which decreased revenue by $84.9 million.

Retail gross profit from new vehicle sales decreased $0.5 million, or 0.4%, from 2009 to 2010. The decrease is due to a $4.5 million, or 4.0%, decrease in same store gross profit, offset by a $4.0 million increase from net dealership acquisitions. The same store decrease is due primarily to the 6.3% decrease in retail unit sales, which decreased gross profit by $7.1 million, offset by a $66, or 2.4%, increase in the average gross profit per new vehicle retailed, which increased gross profit by $2.6 million.

Retail gross profit from used vehicle sales decreased $2.4 million, or 4.0%, from 2009 to 2010.

Distribution segment revenue decreased $25.4 million, or 56.6%, to $19.5 million in 2010 due largely to the reduction in wholesale unit sales. As a result, segment gross profit decreased $5.4 million, or 88.5%, to $0.7 million in 2010. During 2010, the distribution segment recorded $1.6 million in pre-production costs related to its efforts to procure a vehicle from Nissan for distribution through smart USA.

We allocated $2.5 million of the total consideration to the reacquisition of the equity component of the Convertible Notes. In connection with the transactions, we wrote off $0.2 million of unamortized deferred financing costs. As a result, we recorded $0.6 million of pre-tax gain in connection with the repurchase.
