KAR Auction Services, Inc. reported unaudited consolidated earnings results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2014. For the first quarter of 2014, the company reported revenue of $583.8 million as compared with revenue of $557.6 million for the first quarter of 2013, an increase of 5%. Operating profit was $84.4 million against $78.1 million last year. Income before income taxes was $30.5 million against $46.1 million last year. Adjusted EBITDA for the quarter ended March 31, 2014 increased 8% to $147.1 million, as compared with adjusted EBITDA of $136.2 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2013. As a result of the refinancing activities in the first quarter of 2014, net income decreased 29% to $20.7 million, or $0.15 per basic and diluted share, as compared with net income of $29.1 million, or $0.21 per basic and diluted share, in the first quarter of 2013. Adjusted net income per diluted share for the quarter ended March 31, 2014 increased 32% to $0.41 against adjusted net income per diluted share of $0.31 for the quarter ended March 31, 2013. Adjusted net income was $58.3 million against $43.6 million last year. The company has updated its guidance to reflect the recent refinancing of its credit agreement.

The company expects its 2014 effective tax rate to be approximately 40%. Adjusted net income per share for 2014 represents GAAP net income per diluted share excluding excess depreciation and amortization and stock-based compensation, both resulting from the 2007 merger, and the loss on extinguishment of debt, all net of taxes. Additionally, the company expects 2014 cash taxes of approximately $105 million - $115 million, cash interest on corporate debt of approximately $61 million and capital expenditures of approximately $105 million.
