Copart, Inc. (NASDAQ: CPRT) today reported financial results for the quarter ended April 30, 2014.
For the three months ended April 30, 2014, revenue, gross margin and net income were $309.7 million, $132.3 million and $40.9 million, respectively. These represent increases in revenue of $32.1 million, or 11.6%; and in gross margin of $16.7 million, or 14.4%; and a decrease in net income of $12.4 million, or 23.2%, respectively, from the same quarter last year. Fully diluted earnings per share for the three months were $0.31 compared to $0.41 last year, a decrease of 24.4%.
For the nine months ended April 30, 2014, revenue, gross margin and net income were $876.0 million, $351.6 million and $127.6 million, respectively. These represent increases in revenue of $93.4 million, or 11.9%; and in gross margin of $33.8 million, or 10.6%; and a decrease in net income of $11.1 million, or 8.0%, respectively, from the same period last year. Fully diluted earnings per share for the nine months were $0.97 compared to $1.07 last year, a decrease of 9.3%.
Included in operating results of the current quarter is an impairment charge of $29.1 million. In a prior fiscal year, the Company initiated the development of a third-party enterprise operating system to address its international expansion needs and to eventually replace its proprietary operating system, which is currently utilized in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom and the United Arab Emirates. During the quarter, the Company reassessed this strategy based on the projected cost to complete, deployment risk and certain other factors. As a result of this assessment, the Company decided to cease development of the third-party enterprise operating system and address its international technology needs through an internally-developed proprietary solution. Accordingly, during the quarter, the Company recognized an impairment charge resulting primarily from the abandonment of work previously capitalized in connection with the development of the third-party solution.
Included in the operating results of the third quarter of the prior fiscal year were the incremental revenues and operating expenses associated with incremental unit volume generated by Hurricane Sandy, which were estimated to be $12.7 million and $7.2 million, respectively.
Excluding the impacts of the impairment charge during the current quarter and the effects of Hurricane Sandy during the same quarter last year, for the three months ended April 30, 2014, non-GAAP revenue, gross margin and net income were $309.7 million, $132.3 million and $60.3 million, respectively. These represent increases in non-GAAP revenue of $44.8 million, or 16.9%; in non-GAAP gross margin of $22.1 million, or 20.1%; and in non-GAAP net income of $10.6 million, or 21.4%, respectively, from the non-GAAP results from the same quarter last year. Non-GAAP fully diluted earnings per share for the three months were $0.46 compared to $0.38 last year, an increase of 21.1%. A reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable financial measures computed in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) can be found in the tables attached to this press release.
For the nine months ended April 30, 2014, non-GAAP revenue, gross margin and net income were $876.0 million, $351.6 million and $146.6 million, respectively. These represent increases in non-GAAP revenue of $124.5 million, or 16.6%; in non-GAAP gross margin of $29.4 million, or 9.1%; and in non-GAAP net income of $5.0 million, or 3.5%, respectively, from the non-GAAP results from the same period last year. Non-GAAP fully diluted earnings per share for the nine months were $1.12 compared to $1.09 last year, an increase of 2.8%.
On Thursday, May 29, 2014, at 11 a.m. Eastern time, Copart will conduct a conference call to discuss the results for the quarter. The call will be webcast live at http://22.214.171.124/conferenceamerica. A replay of the call will be available through July 28, 2014 by calling (877) 919-4059. Use confirmation code #17312559.
