Copart, Inc. (NASDAQ: CPRT) today reported financial results for the quarter ended January 31, 2014.

For the three months ended January 31, 2014, revenue, operating income and net income were $286.4 million, $71.5 million and $45.3 million, respectively. These represent increases in revenue of $20.2 million, or 7.6%; in operating income of $8.7 million, or 13.9%; and in net income of $5.7 million, or 14.4%, respectively, from the same quarter last year. Fully diluted earnings per share for the three months were $0.35 compared to $0.31 last year, an increase of 12.9%.

For the six months ended January 31, 2014, revenue, operating income and net income were $566.3 million, $136.4 million and $86.8 million, respectively. These represent an increase in revenue of $61.3 million, or 12.1%; a decrease in operating income of $0.7 million, or 0.5%; and an increase in net income of $1.3 million, or 1.5%, respectively, from the same quarter last year.
