On a same-store basis, reported retail new vehicle unit sales in August 2014 were up 5% as compared to August 2013. Industry reporting for August 2014 includes one less calendar day than in August 2013. AutoNation expects to report September 2014 retail new vehicle unit sales on October 2, 2014.
(1) As compared to prior total retail new vehicle unit sales recorded in accordance with GAAP on a continuing operations basis.
The information provided in this news release is based on unaudited sales reports provided by our stores to the applicable automotive manufacturers and is provided on a continuing operations basis. These reports are prepared based on the standards established by the applicable automotive manufacturers, which differ from GAAP revenue recognition and other requirements. For example, the classification of certain transactions under the standards established by certain such manufacturers differs under GAAP. Reported retail sales also includes vehicles placed into certain manufacturer-approved demonstrator vehicle and service loaner programs, which vehicles may be sold as new or used vehicles under GAAP in subsequent periods. In addition, the sales reports are based on the time periods set by the automotive manufacturers for reporting monthly sales, which generally differ from the calendar month. As a result, our operating results calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP, including our new vehicle unit sales, may differ materially from any results expressed or implied by the information provided in our monthly sales reports and summarized in this news release and future news releases. In addition, reported retail sales are subject to seasonal trends. Consequently, reported retail sales for a particular month are not necessarily indicative of results to be expected for a full quarter or year. Please refer to our public filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, including without limitation our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2013 and our subsequent Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q and Current Reports on Form 8-K, for additional information regarding our business. Investors should not assume that our disclosure of the information in this news release means that we have determined that such information is material to the Company.
