(3)Adjusted free cash flow excludes cash used for non-routine structural and other repairs at legacy Central Parking lease locations.

(4)Refer to accompanying financial tables for a reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures.

James A. Wilhelm, Chief Executive Officer, stated, "We achieved solid third quarter results based on our strong execution across our business, which helped generate substantial year-over-year gross profit growth. During the quarter we saw a resurgence of activity in New York City and some other large markets, as well as improved performance at some of our airport locations. This strong operating performance coupled with our continued focus on accounts receivable resulted in solid free cash flow in the quarter."

Mr. Wilhelm added, "Following two years of diligent work, I am pleased to report that the merger integration process is nearly complete and we expect all locations to be operating on one system by year end as scheduled. The fact that we were able to successfully complete the integration on schedule is a testament to the unwavering dedication and perseverance of all of our operating and administrative support teams, who I commend for this substantial achievement. 

"We also recently announced a new joint venture with Parkmobile USA that we believe will become the leading provider of on-demand and prepaid transaction processing for on- and off-street parking and transportation services. 

"Finally, as we announced last week, we will implement our leadership succession plan at the end of the year, when Marc Baumann will become CEO and President and I'll assume the role of Chairman of the Board. Marc has demonstrated outstanding leadership across the business during the last 14 years with a proven track record of operational and management expertise. I have full confidence in his ability to lead the Company and look forward to working with him to capitalize on the exciting opportunities we have to accelerate our growth."

Third Quarter Operating Results

Gross profit in the third quarter of 2014 was $43.6 million, compared to $40.1 million in the third quarter of 2013, an increase of 9%. The quarter's reported gross profit growth benefitted from a year-over-year increase of $0.5 million in the net accretion on acquired lease contract rights and a partial payment of $0.5 million received regarding the Company's Hurricane Sandy insurance claim, the benefit of which was partially offset by $0.2 million of non-routine structural and other repair costs incurred in the third quarter of 2014. The resulting underlying gross profit increased $2.7 million, or 7%, in the third quarter of 2014 as compared to the 2013 third quarter. 

Third quarter 2014 general and administrative (G&A) expenses were $24.1 million, including $3.0 million of merger and integration related costs, as compared to $20.5 million in the third quarter of 2013, which included $1.9 million of merger and integration related costs. Adjusted to eliminate these merger and integration related costs, third quarter 2014 adjusted G&A expenses were $21.1 million, an increase of $2.5 million from the third quarter of 2013 due primarily to changes in the Company's annual performance based compensation plan accruals and other compensation and benefit costs as well as legal fees incurred in connection with the Parkmobile joint venture. On a sequential quarter adjusted basis that eliminates merger and integration related costs from both periods, third quarter 2014 G&A decreased by 14% from the second quarter.

Net income attributable to SP Plus for the third quarter of 2014 was $4.3 million as compared to $3.7 million for the third quarter of 2013. Excluding merger and integration related costs and costs incurred for non-routine structural and other repairs, adjusted earnings per share was $0.28 an increase of $0.06 per share as compared to the third quarter of 2013. 

The Company generated free cash flow of $9.3 million for the third quarter of 2014, which reflects the use of $0.7 million of cash for non-routine structural and other repairs, as compared with negative free cash flow of $1.0 million for the third quarter of 2013, during which the Company did not use any cash for non-routine structural or other repairs. The 2014 third quarter's free cash flow generation benefitted primarily from the Company's solid underlying business performance as well as a reduction in accounts receivable.

Recent Developments

The Company recently announced that it has entered into an agreement with Parkmobile USA, Inc. to establish Parkmobile, LLC, a joint venture that will be a leading provider of on-demand and prepaid transaction processing for on- and off-street parking and transportation services. The joint venture will be first to market with a comprehensive solution that addresses all parking verticals and consumer needs by leveraging the Parkmobile on-demand payment brand and the Click and Park white label parking prepayment transaction engine.

Noteworthy contract and new business activity during the third quarter included the following:

Year-to-Date Operating Results

Reported gross profit for the first nine months of 2014 was $126.8 million, compared to $126.4 million in the first nine months of 2013, an increase of $0.4 million. Reported gross profit growth was negatively impacted by a $1.7 million year-over-year decrease in the net accretion on acquired lease contract rights, $1.2 million incurred in 2014 for non-routine structural and other repairs, and the non-recurrence of a $2.7 million gain from the 2013 sale of a long-term contract right. The reported gross profit impact was partially offset by the $0.5 million Hurricane Sandy insurance payment received in 2014. The resulting underlying year-to-date gross profit increased by $5.4 million, or 4%, despite the severe 2014 winter weather impact on the first quarter of 2014. 

G&A expenses for the first nine months of 2014 were $75.2 million, including $5.0 million of merger and integration related costs, as compared to $75.3 million in the first nine months of 2013, which included $9.2 million of merger and integration related costs. Adjusted to eliminate these merger and integration related costs, adjusted G&A expenses for the first nine months 2014 were $70.2 million as compared to $66.1 million for the first nine months of 2013, an increase of 6% partly due to increases in compensation and benefit costs as well as legal fees incurred in connection with the Parkmobile joint venture.

2014 Full-Year Outlook

Based on the year-to-date results, the Company continues to expect adjusted earnings per share to be at the lower end of the range of $0.77 to $0.87, which excludes expected full-year 2014 merger and integration related costs as well as the one-time, $0.28 per share tax benefit from the first quarter 2014 reversal of a valuation allowance for deferred tax assets.

In addition, through the first nine months of 2014 the Company has expensed $1.2 million for non-routine structural and other repairs at legacy Central Parking leases, and expects to incur additional amounts for such purposes throughout the remainder of 2014. These expenditures will impact 2014 earnings per share and free cash flow. All 2014 guidance continues to exclude these items.

The Company still expects to generate free cash flow of $35 to $40 million for the full-year 2014, excluding the impact of cash used for non-routine structural and other repairs.

Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

This release and the attached tables contain forward-looking statements as defined in the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, including the statements under the caption "2014 Full-Year Outlook," the statement regarding expectations for integration of Central Parking locations and other statements regarding expectations, beliefs, plans, intentions and strategies of the Company. The Company has tried to identify these statements by using words such as "expect," "anticipate," "believe," "could," "should," "estimate," "intend," "may," "plan," "guidance," "will," "are to be" and similar terms and phrases, but such words, terms and phrases are not the exclusive means of identifying such statements. These forward-looking statements are made based on management's expectations and beliefs concerning future events affecting the Company and are subject to uncertainties and factors relating to operations and the business environment, all of which are difficult to predict and many of which are beyond management's control. Actual results, performance and achievements could differ materially from those expressed in, or implied by, these forward-looking statements due to a variety of risks, uncertainties and other factors, including, but not limited to, the following: the Company's ability to integrate Central Parking into the business of the Company successfully and the amount of time and expense spent and incurred in connection with the integration; the risk that the economic benefits, cost savings and other synergies that the Company anticipates as a result of the Central Parking merger are not fully realized or take longer to realize than expected; the Company's substantially increased indebtedness incurred in connection with the Central Parking merger, which may reduce available cash flow, increase vulnerability to adverse economic conditions, and limit flexibility in planning for, or reacting to, changes in or challenges related to the Company's business; the loss of customers, clients or strategic alliances as a result of the Central Parking merger; losses, or renewals on less favorable terms, of management contracts and leases, and costs of non-routine structural and other repairs incurred by the Company under certain lease contracts; adverse litigation judgments or settlements;  unanticipated Central Parking merger and integration expenses; intense competition; the impact of public and private regulations; changes in general economic and business conditions or demographic trends; financial difficulties or bankruptcy of major clients; insurance losses that are worse than expected or adverse events not covered by insurance; labor disputes; extraordinary events affecting parking at facilities that the Company manages, including emergency safety measures, military or terrorist attacks, and natural disasters; information technology breakdown, invasion, destruction or interruption; the risk that state and municipal government clients sell or enter into long-term leases of parking-related assets to competitors or clients of our competitors; availability, terms and deployment of capital; the Company's ability to obtain performance bonds on acceptable terms; and the impact of Federal health care reform.

For a detailed discussion of factors that could affect the Company's future operating results, please see the Company's filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including the disclosures under "Risk Factors" in those filings. Except as expressly required by the federal securities laws, the Company undertakes no obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, changed circumstances or future events or for any other reason.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement its consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with GAAP, the Company considers certain financial measures that are not prepared in accordance with GAAP, including gross profit excluding costs incurred related to non-routine structural and other repairs at legacy Central Parking leases (also referred to as adjusted gross profit), general and administrative expenses excluding merger and integration related costs (also referred to as adjusted G&A), net income attributable to SP Plus excluding merger and integration related costs as well as costs incurred related to non-routine structural and other repairs at legacy Central Parking leases and eliminating the reversal of a valuation allowance for deferred tax assets (also referred to as adjusted net income attributable to SP Plus), net income per share excluding merger and integration related costs as well as costs incurred related to non-routine structural and other repairs at legacy Central Parking leases and eliminating the reversal of a valuation allowance for deferred tax assets (also referred to as adjusted EPS), EBITDA and EBITDA excluding merger and integration related costs as well as costs incurred related to non-routine structural and other repairs at legacy Central Parking leases (also referred to as adjusted EBITDA), and free cash flow and free cash flow excluding cash used for non-routine structural and other repairs at legacy Central Parking leases (also referred to as adjusted free cash flow). Adjusted gross profit has been further adjusted to exclude for the net accretion on acquired lease contract rights, net asset sales and proceeds from a partial payment of the Hurricane Sandy insurance claim to get to underlying gross profit.

The Company uses these non-GAAP financial measures, in addition to GAAP financial measures, to evaluate its operating and financial performance and to compare such performance to that of prior periods and to the performance of its competitors. Additionally, the Company uses these non-GAAP financial measures in making operational and financial decisions and in the Company's budgeting and planning process.The Company believes that providing these non-GAAP financial measures to investors helps investors evaluate the Company's operating performance, profitability and business trends in a way that is consistent with how management evaluates such performance and consistent with guidance previously provided by the Company. Adjusted gross profit, underlying gross profit, adjusted G&A, adjusted net income attributable to SP Plus, adjusted EPS, EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA, and free cash flow and adjusted free cash flow should not be considered as alternatives to, or more meaningful indicators of the Company's operating performance or liquidity than, gross profit, G&A, net income, EPS or net cash provided by operating activities, as determined in accordance with GAAP. In addition, the Company's calculation of such non-GAAP measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of another company.

Adjusted gross profit and adjusted G&A are non-GAAP financial measures of gross profit and G&A expenses, respectively, excluding merger and integration related costs as well as costs incurred related to non-routine structural and other repairs at legacy Central Parking leases. Underlying gross profit also excludes the net accretion on acquired lease contract rights, net asset sales and proceeds from a partial payment of the Hurricane Sandy insurance claim. The Company believes these financial measures provide useful information regarding the underlying operating performance of the Company and improve comparability of financial results. Adjusted net income attributable to SP Plus and adjusted EPS (including in the Company guidance for 2014) are non-GAAP financial measures of net income attributable to SP Plus and EPS excluding merger and integration related costs as well as costs incurred related to non-routine structural and other repairs at legacy Central Parking leases and eliminating the reversal of a valuation allowance for deferred tax assets. The Company believes its presentation of these financial measures improves comparability of financial results.

EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure that represents GAAP net income attributable to the Company before (i) interest expense net of interest income, (ii) provision for income taxes, and (iii) depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA further adjusts EBITDA by excluding merger and integration related costs as well as costs incurred related to non-routine structural and other repairs at legacy Central Parking leases.

The Company defines free cash flow as net cash from operating activities, less cash used for investing activities (exclusive of acquisitions), less distribution to noncontrolling interest, plus the effect of exchange rate changes on cash and cash equivalents. Adjusted free cash flow also excludes the cash used for non-routine structural and other repairs at legacy Central Parking leases. The Company believes that the presentation of free cash flow and adjusted free cash flow provides useful information regarding its recurring cash provided by operating activities after certain expenditures. It also demonstrates the Company's ability to execute its financial strategy. The Company's presentations of free cash flow and adjusted free cash flow have material limitations. The Company's free cash flow and adjusted free cash flow do not represent its cash flow available for discretionary expenditures because it excludes certain expenditures that are required or to which the Company has committed, such as debt service requirements. The Company's definition of free cash flow and adjusted free cash flow may not be comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other companies.

For reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures, see the accompanying tables to this release.
