Autonation Inc
AutoNation, Inc. is the largest automotive retailer in the United States. Our stores, which we believe include some of the most recognizable and well-known in our key markets, sell 35 different brands of new vehicles. The core brands of vehicles that we sell, are manufactured by Ford, General Motors, DaimlerChrysler, Toyota, Nissan, Honda and BMW.

We offer a diversified range of automotive products and services, including new vehicles, used vehicles, vehicle maintenance and repair services, vehicle parts, extended service contracts, vehicle protection products and other aftermarket products. We also arrange financing for vehicle purchases through third-party finance sources. We believe that the significant scale of our operations and the quality of our managerial talent allow us to achieve efficiencies in our key markets by, among other things, reducing operating expenses, leveraging our market brands and advertising, improving asset management and sharing and implementing best practices across all of our stores.

Each of our stores acquires new vehicles for retail sale either directly from the applicable automotive manufacturer or distributor or through dealer trades with other stores of the same franchise. Accordingly, we depend in large part on the automotive manufacturers and distributors to provide us with high-quality vehicles that consumers desire and to supply us with such vehicles at suitable quantities and prices and at the right times. Our operations, particularly our sales of new vehicles, are impacted by the sales incentive programs conducted by the automotive manufacturers to spur consumer demand for their vehicles. We generally acquire used vehicles from customer trade-ins, at the termination of leases and, to a lesser extent, auctions and other sources. We generally recondition used vehicles acquired for retail sale at our stores' service facilities and capitalize costs related thereto as used vehicle inventory. Used vehicles that we do not sell at our stores generally are sold at wholesale through auctions.

We provide a wide variety of financial products and services to our customers in a convenient manner and at competitive prices. We arrange for our customers to finance vehicles through installment loans or leases with third-party lenders, including the vehicle manufacturers' and distributors' captive finance subsidiaries, in exchange for a commission payable to us by the third-party lender. Commissions that we receive from these third-party lenders may be subject to chargeback, in full or in part, if loans that we arrange are defaulted or prepaid or upon other specified circumstances. However, our exposure to loss in connection with arranging third-party financing generally is limited to the commissions that we receive. Since our mid-1999 exit from the vehicle lease underwriting business and our December 2001 exit from the retail auto loan underwriting business, we have not directly financed our customers' vehicle leases or purchases. In July 2003, we sold the remainder of our finance receivables portfolio with respect to auto leases and loans that we had underwritten and received proceeds equal to the net carrying value of the financing receivables and servicing liabilities at the close of the transaction.

We also offer our customers various vehicle warranty and extended protection products, including extended warranties, maintenance programs, guaranteed auto protection'(known as 'GAP,' this protection covers the shortfall between a customer's loan balance and insurance payoff in the event of a casualty), credit insurance, lease 'wear and tear' insurance and theft protection products at competitive prices. The vehicle warranty and extended protection products that our stores currently offer to customers are underwritten and administered by independent third parties, including the vehicle manufacturers' captive finance subsidiaries. Pursuant to our arrangements with these third-party finance and vehicle protection product providers, we primarily sell the products on a straight commission basis; however, we may sell the product, recognize commission and participate in future underwriting profit, if any, pursuant to a retrospective commission arrangement. Commissions that we receive from these third-party providers may be subject to chargebacks, in full or in part, if products that we sell, such as extended warranties, are cancelled. We establish an estimated liability for chargebacks against revenue recognized from sales of finance and vehicle protection products during the period in which the related revenue is recognized.

Our stores also provide a wide range of parts and vehicle maintenance and repair services, including warranty work that can be performed only at franchised dealerships and customer-pay service work. Additionally, we operate collision repair centers in most of our key markets that provide paint and repair services. We have developed relationships with national insurance companies that establish our stores and collision centers as preferred providers of collision repair services.


We operate in a highly competitive industry. We believe that the principal competitive factors in the automotive retailing business are location, service, price and selection. Each of our markets includes a large number of well-capitalized competitors that have extensive automobile store managerial experience and strong retail locations and facilities. According to the National Automotive Dealers Association, Manheim Auctions and reports of various industry analysts, the automotive retail industry is served by approximately 22,000 franchised automotive dealerships and approximately 54,000 independent used vehicle dealers. Several other public companies operate numerous automotive retail stores on a national or regional basis. We are subject to competition from dealers that sell the same brands of new vehicles that we sell and from dealers that sell other brands of new vehicles that we do not represent in a particular market. Our new vehicle store competitors have franchise agreements with the various vehicle manufacturers and, as such, generally have access to new vehicles on the same terms as us. Additionally, we are subject to competition in the automotive retailing business from private market buyers and sellers of used vehicles.
