These represent an increase in revenue of $33.5 million, or 13.7%; and decreases in operating income of $5.1 million, or 5.8%; and in net income of $2.2 million, or 4.0%, respectively, from the same quarter last year.

Fully diluted earnings per share for the nine months ended April 30, 2013 were $1.07 compared to $1.04 last year, an increase of 2.9%.

The operating results for the third quarter were adversely affected by abnormal costs incurred as a result of hurricane Sandy. These costs include the additional towing, payroll, equipment, travel, housing and facilities expenses directly related to the operating conditions created by hurricane Sandy. Also included are costs associated with our international expansion and the incremental towing and processing costs tied to the 21% year over year growth in inventory.

Included in general and administrative cost for our third quarter are the non-capitalizable costs associated with the implementation of our ERP system and the incremental costs associated with the outsourcing of our network infrastructure and our technical support functions, which together totaled $1.7 million. These costs are expected to abate upon completion of the implementation, which is currently expected to occur sometime in our 2014 fiscal year. Also included are the costs associated with our expanded international operations which totaled $1.4 million and will continue.

On Friday, May 31, 2013, 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 A replay of the call will be available through June 30, 2013 by calling (888) 203-1112. Use confirmation code #8903126.
