STANDARD PARKING CORPORATION
NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED INTERIM FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(in thousands, except for share and per share data, unaudited)
1. Basis of Presentation
The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements of Standard Parking Corporation have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States for interim financial information and with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and notes required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States for complete financial statements.
In the opinion of management, all adjustments (consisting only of adjustments of a normal and recurring nature) considered necessary for a fair presentation of the financial position and results of operations have been included. Operating results for the three-month and six-month period ended June 30, 2009 are not necessarily indicative of the results that might be expected for any other interim period or the fiscal year ending December 31, 2009. The financial statements presented in this report should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and footnotes thereto included in our 2008 Annual Report on Form 10-K filed March 13, 2009.
Principles of Consolidation
The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company, its wholly owned subsidiaries, and joint ventures in which the Company has more than 50% ownership interest. Noncontrolling interest recorded in the consolidated statement of income is the joint venture partner’s non-controlling interest in consolidated joint ventures. We have interests in twelve joint ventures, each of which operates between one and twenty-two parking facilities. Of the twelve joint ventures, nine are majority owned by us and are consolidated into our financial statements, and three are single purpose entities where we have a 50% interest or a minority interest. Investments in joint ventures where the Company has a 50% or less non-controlling ownership interest are accounted for under the equity method. All significant intercompany profits, transactions and balances have been eliminated in consolidation.
Variable Interest Entities
                     
    Commencement of   Nature of        
Equity   Operations   Activities   % Ownership   Locations
Other investments in VIEs
  Sep 93 — Jun 08   Management of parking lots, shuttle operations and parking meters     50 %   Various states
The existing VIEs in which we have a variable interest are not consolidated into our financial statements because we are not the primary beneficiary.
Financial Instruments
The carrying values of cash, accounts receivable and accounts payable are reasonable estimates of their fair value due to the short-term nature of these financial instruments. Other long-term debt has a carrying value that approximates fair value because these instruments bear interest at market rates.
2. Stock Split
On December 4, 2007, the Board of Directors declared a 2-for-1 stock split in the form of a 100% common stock dividend to stockholders of record as of the close of business on January 8, 2008, which was distributed on January 17, 2008. All share and per share data included in the consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes have been adjusted to reflect this stock split.
3. Stock-Based Compensation
The Company accounts for share-based payment awards in accordance with SFAS No. 123R, “Share-Based Payment,” as interpreted by SAB No. 107. Under the provisions of SFAS No. 123R, share-based compensation expense is measured at the grant date, based on the fair value of the award, and is recognized as an expense over the requisite employee service period (generally the vesting period) for awards expected to vest (considering estimated forfeitures).
The Company has an amended and restated Long-Term Incentive Plan that was adopted in conjunction with our IPO. On February 27, 2008, our Board approved an amendment to our Long-Term Incentive Plan, subject to shareholder approval, that increased the maximum number of shares of common stock available for awards under the Long-Term Incentive Plan from 2,000,000 to 2,175,000 and extended the Plan’s termination date. Our shareholders approved this Plan amendment on April 22, 2008, and the Plan now terminates twenty years from the date of such approval, or April 22, 2028. At June 30, 2009, 123,149 shares remained available for award under the Plan. In most cases, options granted under the Plan vest at the end of a three-year period from the date of the award. Options are granted with an exercise price equal to the closing price at the date of grant.

Table of Contents

Stock Options and Grants
We use the Black-Scholes option pricing model to estimate the fair value of each option grant as of the date of grant. The volatilities are based on the 90 day historical volatility of our common stock as of the grant date. The risk free interest rate is based on zero-coupon U.S. government issues with a remaining term equal to the expected life of the option. For options granted prior to 2008, the expected life for options was calculated using the simplified method. The simplified method was calculated as the vesting term plus the contractual term divided by two.
There were no options granted during the six months ended June 30, 2009.
On January 24, 2008, we issued vested stock grants totaling 1,084 shares to a director. The total value of the grant was $25 and is included in general and administrative expenses.
On April 22, 2008, we issued stock grants totaling 18,900 shares to certain directors. The total value of the grant was $385 and is included in general and administrative expenses.
The Company recognized $30 of stock based compensation expense related to stock options for the three and six months ended June 30, 2009. The Company recognized $385 and $411 of stock based compensation expense for the three and six months ended June 30, 2008, respectively, which is included in general and administrative expense. As of June 30, 2009, there was no unrecognized compensation costs related to unvested options.
Performance-Based Incentive Program
In December 2006, the Board of Directors adopted a performance-based incentive program under our Long-Term Incentive Plan. This new program provided participating executives with the opportunity to earn a combination of stock (50%) and cash (50%) if certain performance targets for pre-tax income and pre-tax free cash flow are achieved. On February 23, 2007, certain participating executives became entitled to performance restricted stock based on the stock price at the commencement of the three year performance cycle (2007-2009) and as a result 16,404 shares were issued subject to vesting upon the achievement of the performance goals. On April 13, 2007, an additional 13,294 shares of the performance restricted stock were issued subject to vesting upon the achievement of the three year performance goals to the remaining participating executives. On December 31, 2007, 3,849 shares were released free of restrictions in accordance with the achievement of the first year performance goals. On December 31, 2008, 7,072 shares were released free of restrictions in accordance with the achievement of the second year performance goals.
In accordance with SFAS No. 123R, recording of stock-based compensation expense for awards with performance conditions is based on the probable outcome of that performance condition. The Company recognized $11 and $27 of stock-based compensation expense and $11 and $27 of cash compensation expense related to the performance-based incentive program, for the three months ended June 30, 2009 and 2008, respectively, which is included in general and administrative expenses. The Company recognized $21 and $54 of stock-based compensation expense and $21 and $54 of cash compensation expense related to the performance-based incentive program, for the six months ended June 30, 2009 and 2008, respectively, which is included in general and administrative expenses. As of June 30, 2009, there was $42 of unrecognized compensation costs related to the performance-based incentive program which is expected to be recognized over a weighted average period of 0.5 years.
Restricted Stock Units
In March 2008, the Company’s Compensation Committee and the Board of Directors authorized a one-time grant of 750,000 restricted stock units that subsequently were awarded to members of our senior management team on July 1, 2008. In November 2008, an additional 5,000 restricted stock units were awarded. The restricted stock units vest in one-third installments on each of the tenth, eleventh and twelfth anniversaries of the grant date. The restricted stock unit agreements provide for accelerated vesting upon the recipient’s retirement age.
The cost of restricted stock units is determined using the fair value of our common stock on the date of the grant, and compensation expense is recognized over the vesting period. In accordance with SFAS No. 123R, we estimate forfeitures at the time of the grant and revise those estimates in subsequent periods if actual forfeitures differ from those estimates. We use historical data to estimate pre-vesting forfeitures and record stock-based compensation expense only for those awards that are expected to vest.

The Company recognized $504 and $1,022 of stock based compensation expense related to the restricted stock units for the three and six months ended June 30, 2009, respectively, which is included in general and administrative expense. As of June 30, 2009, there was $10,799 of unrecognized stock-based compensation costs, net of estimated forfeitures, related to the restricted stock units that is expected to be recognized over a weighted average period of approximately 7.54 years.
4. Net Income Per Common Share
In accordance with SFAS No.128, Earnings Per Share (“EPS”), basic net income per share is computed by dividing net income by the weighted daily average number of shares of common stock outstanding during the period. Diluted net income per share is based upon the weighted daily average number of shares of common stock outstanding for the period plus dilutive potential common shares, including stock options and restricted stock units using the treasury-stock method.
A reconciliation of the weighted average basic common shares outstanding to the weighted average diluted common shares outstanding is as follows (Unaudited):

Weighted average shares issuable upon the exercise of stock options, which were not included in the diluted earnings per share calculation because they were anti-dilutive, were 19,068 for the three and six months ended June 30, 2009. There were no anti-dilutive options for the three and six months ended June 30, 2008.
For the three and six months ended June 30, 2009 and 2008, 18,777 and 25,849 shares, respectively, of performance based restricted stock were not included in the computation of weighted diluted common share amounts because the number of shares ultimately issued is contingent on the Company’s performance goals, which were not achieved as of that date.
There are no additional securities that could dilute basic EPS in the future that were not included in the computation of diluted EPS, other than those disclosed.
5. Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements
Accounting Standards Not Yet Adopted
In June 2009, the FASB issued Statement No. 168, The FASB Accounting Standards Codification and the Hierarchy of Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“Statement No. 168”). Statement No. 168 will become the single source of authoritative nongovernmental U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”), superseding existing FASB, American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (“AICPA”), Emerging Issues Task Force (“EITF”), and related accounting literature. Statement No. 168 reorganizes the thousands of GAAP pronouncements into roughly 90 accounting topics and displays them using a consistent structure. Also included is relevant Securities and Exchange Commission guidance organized using the same topical structure in separate sections. Statement No. 168 will be effective for financial statements issued for reporting periods that end after September 15, 2009. All other nongrandfathered, non-SEC accounting literature not included in the Codification will become nonauthoritative. We are required to adopt Statement 168 in the third quarter of the current fiscal year. As the Codification does not intend to change or alter existing GAAP, the adoption of Statement 168 will not impact our future results of operations and financial condition.
Accounting Standards Adopted
During the second quarter of 2009, we adopted the provisions of Statement No. 165, Subsequent Events (“Statement No. 165”). Statement No. 165 requires entities to disclose the date through which they have evaluated subsequent events and whether the date corresponds with the release of their financial statements. In accordance with Statement No. 165, the Company has evaluated subsequent events through the date and time the financial statements were issued on August 7, 2009, and have made the necessary disclosures in footnote 17, if any.

In June 2009, the FASB issued Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 167, Amendments to FASB Interpretation No. 46(R), or Statement 167. Statement 167 changes the approach to determining the primary beneficiary of a variable interest entity, or VIE, and requires companies to more frequently assess whether they must consolidate VIEs. We are required to adopt Statement 167 at the beginning of 2010. We are currently evaluating the impact, if any, of adopting Statement 167 on our future results of operations and financial condition.
In June 2009, the FASB issued Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 166, Accounting for Transfers of Financial Assets—an amendment of FASB Statement No. 140, or Statement 166. Statement 166 eliminates the concept of a qualifying special-purpose entity, creates more stringent conditions for reporting a transfer of a portion of a financial asset as a sale, clarifies other sale-accounting criteria and changes the initial measurement of a transferor’s interest in transferred financial assets. We are required to adopt Statement 166 at the beginning of 2010. We are currently evaluating the impact, if any, of adopting Statement 166 on our future results of operations and financial condition.
In April 2009, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) issued three FSPs related to fair value measurements. The first, FSP FAS 157-4, Determining Fair Value When the Volume and Level of Activity for the Asset or Liability Have Significantly Decreased and Identifying Transactions That Are Not Orderly, provides guidance on determining whether a market is inactive and whether transactions in that market are distressed. The second FSP issued, FSP FAS 115-2, FAS 124-2, and EITF 99-20-2, Recognition and Presentation of Other-Than-Temporary Impairments, provides guidance on how to assess whether an asset has experienced an other-than-temporary impairment and, if so, where the impairment should be recorded in the financial statements. The third FSP issued, FSP FAS 107-1 and APB 28-1, Interim Disclosures About Fair Value of Financial Instruments, requires that disclosures currently required under SFAS No. 107, Disclosures about Fair Value of Financial Instruments, be presented for interim periods as well as annual periods. The Company adopted these FSPs during the second quarter of 2009. The adoption of these FSPs did not have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.
In September 2006, the FASB issued Statement of Financial Accounting Standards, Fair Value Measurements (“Statement No. 157”). Statement No. 157 defines fair value, establishes a framework for measuring fair value in generally accepted accounting principles and expands disclosures about fair value measurements. The statement does not require new fair value measurements, but is applied to the extent that other accounting pronouncements require or permit fair value measurements. The statement emphasizes that fair value is a market-based measurement that should be determined based on the assumptions that market participants would use in pricing an asset or liability. Companies are required to disclose the extent to which fair value is used to measure assets and liabilities, the inputs used to develop the measurements, and the effect of certain of the measurements on earnings (or changes in net assets) for the period. On January 1, 2008, the Company adopted the provisions of Statement No. 157 related to financial assets and liabilities, as well as other liabilities carried at fair value on a recurring basis. These provisions did not have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements. On January 1, 2009, the Company adopted the provisions of Statement No. 157 related to nonfinancial assets and liabilities. The adoption of these provisions did not have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.
On January 1, 2009, we adopted the provisions of Statement No. 141 (Revised 2007), Business Combinations (“Statement No. 141R”). Statement No. 141R establishes principles and requirements on how an acquirer recognizes and measures in its financial statements identifiable assets acquired, liabilities assumed, noncontrolling interests in the acquiree, goodwill or gain from a bargain purchase and accounting for transaction costs. Additionally, Statement No. 141R determines what information must be disclosed to enable users of the financial statements to evaluate the nature and financial effects of the business combination. The adoption of Statement No. 141R did not have an impact on our consolidated financial statements, but will have an impact on the accounting for future business combinations.
On January 1, 2009, we adopted the provisions of Statement No. 160, Noncontrolling Interests in Consolidated Financial Statements—an amendment of ARB No. 51. (“Statement No. 160”). Statement No. 160 requires entities to report noncontrolling (minority) interests as a component of shareholders’ equity on the balance sheet; include all earnings of a consolidated subsidiary in consolidated results of operations; and treat all transactions between the parent and its noncontrolling interest holder that increase or decrease the noncontrolling interest as equity provided the parent does not lose control. The adoption of Statement 160 is reflected in these financial statements.

6. Acquisitions
During the year ended December 31, 2008, the Company completed two acquisitions. Consideration for all acquisitions was $8,505 of which $6,008 was paid in cash and $2,497 in a discounted non-interest bearing note to be paid in annual installments of $600, commencing February 2009 and an estimated $187 to be paid in the future based upon financial performance compared to forecast. On March 31, 2009, we entered into a settlement agreement with the principals of G.O. Parking which amended the installment payment agreement, provided for a termination fee and a reimbursement of legal fees we incurred for post acquisition disputes. On April 14th we paid G.O. parking $1,680 in lieu of the original installment payment obligation. In addition, the Company paid and capitalized $310 in acquisition costs. A summary of the acquisitions follows:
   
In November 2008, we acquired certain assets of Downtown Valet, LLC, a valet parking operator in Seattle, Washington.
   
In February 2008, we acquired certain assets of G.O. Parking, a parking operator in Chicago, Illinois.
The acquisitions of Downtown Valet, LLC and G.O. Parking represent acquisitions of businesses, as defined by EITF Issue No. 98-3.
These acquisitions consisted of goodwill of $3,007, cost of contract of $5,314, intangible assets of $233 and equipment of $261. At December 31, 2008. As of June 30, 2009, we have made contingency payments of $259 related to acquisitions, of which $225 had been accrued at December 31, 2008.
The acquisitions for 2008 were accounted for using the purchase method of accounting. The Company financed the acquisitions through additional term borrowings under the senior credit facility and existing cash. The results of operations of these acquisitions are included in the Company’s consolidated statement of income from the date of acquisition. None of the acquisitions, either individually or in the aggregate, is considered material to the Company.
7. Leasehold Improvements, Equipment and Construction in Progress, Net
A summary of leasehold improvements, equipment, and construction in progress and related accumulated depreciation and amortization is as follows:

          $ 17,825     $ 17,542  
 
                   
Depreciation expense was $964 and $1,930 for the three and six months ended June 30, 2009, respectively, and $1,073 and $2,067 for the three and six months ended June 30, 2008, respectively. Depreciation includes losses on abandonments of leasehold improvements and equipment of $96 and $193 for the three and six months ended June 30, 2009, respectively, and $171 and $175 for the three and six months ended June 30, 2008, respectively.
8. Cost of Contracts, Net
Cost of contracts represents the contractual rights associated with providing parking services at a managed or leased facility. Cost consists of either capitalized payments made to third parties or the value ascribed to contracts acquired through acquisition. Cost of contracts is amortized over the estimated life of the contracts, including anticipated renewals and terminations.
The balance of cost of contracts is comprised of the following:
                 
    June 30, 2009     December 31, 2008  
    (Unaudited)          
Cost of contracts
  $ 15,905     $ 15,303

Amortization expense related to cost of contracts was $402 and $799 for the three and six months ended June 30, 2009, respectively, and $335 and $640 for the three and six months ended June 30, 2008, respectively. The weighted average useful life is 10 years for 2009 and 2008.
9. Goodwill and Intangible Assets
In accordance with FASB Statement No. 142, “Goodwill and Other Intangible Assets”, goodwill was assigned to reporting units that we now present based upon the specific Region where the assets acquired and associate goodwill resided.
As a result of the prior acquisitions, as of June 30, 2009, our contingent payment obligations totaled $1,387, on an aggregate undiscounted basis, which may be paid over time provided certain performance criteria is achieved. Such contingent payments will be accounted for as additional purchase price if the performance criteria is achieved; accordingly, the contingent payment obligation is not recorded at December 31, 2008, pursuant to previously existing purchase accounting rules that allowed for such capitalization.

Agreement
We entered into a 25-year agreement with the State of Connecticut that expires on April 6, 2025, under which we operate the surface parking and 3,500 garage parking spaces at Bradley International Airport located in the Hartford, Connecticut metropolitan area. The Company expects to receive a management fee for managing this parking facility.
The parking garage was financed on April 6, 2000 through the issuance of $53,800 of State of Connecticut special facility revenue bonds, representing $47,700 non-taxable Series A bonds and a separate taxable issuance of $6,100 Series B bonds. The Series B bonds were retired on July 1, 2006 according to the terms of the indenture. The Bradley agreement provides that we deposit with a trustee for the bondholders all gross revenues collected from operations of the surface and garage parking, and from these gross revenues, the trustee pays debt service on the special facility revenue bonds, operating and capital maintenance expenses of the surface and garage parking facilities and specific annual guaranteed minimum payments to the State. Principal and interest on the Bradley special facility revenue bonds increase from approximately $3,600 in lease year 2002 to approximately $4,500 in lease year 2025. Annual guaranteed minimum payments to the State will increase from approximately $8,300 in lease year 2002 to approximately $13,200 in lease year 2024; $9,731 is the guaranteed minimum payment for calendar year 2009. The annual minimum guaranteed payment to the State by the trustee for the six months ended June 30, 2009 and 2008 was $4,823 and $4,724, respectively.
All of the cash flow from the Parking Facilities is pledged to the security of the bonds and is collected and deposited with the bond trustee. Each month the bond trustee makes certain required monthly distributions, which are characterized as “Guaranteed Payments.” To the extent the monthly gross receipts generated by the Parking Facilities are not sufficient for the trustee to make the required Guaranteed Payments, we are obligated to deliver the deficiency amount to the trustee. Additionally, the Guaranteed Payments are required to be paid before we are reimbursed for deficiency payments or management fees.
The following is the list of Guaranteed Payments:
   
Garage and surface operating expenses,
   
Principal and interest on Bonds,
   
Trustee expenses
   
Major maintenance and capital improvement deposits
   
State Minimum Guarantee
However, to the extent there is a cash surplus in any month during the term of the Lease, we have the right to be repaid the principal amount of any and all deficiency payments previously made, together with actual interest expenses and a premium, not to exceed 10% of the initial deficiency payment. We calculate and record interest income and premium income in the period the associated deficiency payment is received from the trustee.
Deficiency Payments
To the extent that monthly gross receipts are not sufficient for the trustee to make the required payments, we are obligated pursuant to our agreement to deliver the deficiency amount to the trustee within three business days of being notified. We are responsible for these deficiency payments regardless of the amount of utilization for the Bradley parking facilities. The deficiency payments represent contingent interest bearing advances to the trustee to cover operating cash flow requirements. To the extent sufficient funds are available in the appropriate fund, the trustee is then directed by the State to reimburse us for deficiency payments up to the amount of the calculated surplus.
In the six months ended June 30, 2009, we made deficiency payments (net of repayments received) of $1,540 and we did not record or receive any interest and premium income deficiency repayments from the trustee. In the six months ended June 30, 2008, we made deficiency payments (net of repayments received) of $851 and we did not record or receive any interest and premium income related to deficiency repayments from the trustee. The receivable from the trustee for interest and premium income related to deficiency repayments was $0 as of June 30, 2009, compared to $52 as of June 30, 2008.

Table of Contents

The deficiency payments, if any, are recorded as a receivable by us for which we are reimbursed from time to time as provided in the trust agreement. As of June 30, 2009 and December 31, 2008, we have a receivable of $7,501 and $5,961, respectively, compromised of cumulative deficiency payments to the trustee, net of reimbursements. We believe these advances to be fully recoverable and therefore have not recorded a valuation allowance for them. We do not guarantee the payment of any principal or interest on any debt obligations of the State of Connecticut or the trustee.
The Construction, Financing and Operating Special Facility Lease Agreement, which governs reimbursement of Guarantor Payments, places no time restriction or limits on our right to reimbursement.
The following table reconciles the beginning and ending balance of the receivable for each period presented:
                 
    June 30, 2009     December 31, 2008

Compensation
In addition to the recovery of certain general and administrative expenses incurred, our agreement provides for an annual management fee payment which is based on three operating profit tiers calculated for each year during the term of the agreement. The management fee is further apportioned 60% to us and 40% to an un-affiliated entity. To the extent that funds are available for the trustee to make a distribution, the annual management fee is paid when sufficient cash is paid after the Guaranteed Payments (as defined in our agreement), and after the repayment of all deficiency payments, including accrued interest and premium. However, our right to the management fee accrues each year during the term of the agreement and is paid when sufficient cash is available for the trustee to make a distribution.
The annual management fee is paid after the repayment of all deficiency payments, including accrued interest and premium. Therefore, due to the existence and length of time for repayment of the deficiency amounts to the Company, no management fees have been recognized. Management fees will be recognized in accordance with SAB 104 when “collectibility is reasonably assured”.
Cumulative management fees of $3,900 have not been recognized as of June 30, 2009 and no management fee income was recognized during the six months ending June 30, 2009 and 2008.

Senior Credit Facility
On July 15, 2008, we entered into an amended and restated credit agreement which restated our credit facility.
The $210,000 revolving senior credit facility will expire in July 2013. The revolving senior credit facility includes a letter of credit sub-facility with a sublimit of $50,000.
This revolving senior credit facility bears interest, at our option, at either (1) LIBOR plus the applicable LIBOR Margin ranging between 2.00% and 3.50% depending on the ratio of our total funded indebtedness to our EBITDA from time to time (“Total Debt Ratio”) or (2) the Base Rate (as defined below) plus the applicable Base Rate Margin ranging between 0.50% and 2.00% depending on our Total Debt Ratio. We may elect interest periods of one, two, three or six months for LIBOR based borrowings. The Base Rate is the greater of (i) the rate publicly announced from time to time by Bank of America, N.A. as its “prime rate”, or (ii) the overnight federal funds rate plus 0.50%.
The senior credit facility includes a fixed charge ratio covenant, a total debt to EBITDA ratio covenant, a limit on our ability to incur additional indebtedness, issue preferred stock or pay dividends, and certain other restrictions on our activities. We are required to repay borrowings under the senior credit facility out of the proceeds of future issuances of debt or equity securities and asset sales, subject to certain customary exceptions. The senior credit facility is secured by substantially all of our assets and all assets acquired in the future (including a pledge of 100% of the stock of our existing and future domestic guarantor subsidiaries and 65% of the stock of our existing and future foreign subsidiaries).
We are in compliance with all of our financial covenants as of June 30, 2009.
The weighted average interest rate on our senior credit facility at June 30, 2009 and December 31, 2008 was 3.3% and 3.6%, respectively. The rate includes all outstanding LIBOR contracts, interest rate cap effect and letters of credit. The weighted average interest rate on outstanding borrowings, not including letters of credit, was 3.4% and 3.8% at June 30, 2009 and December 31, 2008, respectively.
At June 30, 2009, we had $18,884 of letters of credit outstanding under the senior credit facility, borrowings against the senior credit facility aggregated $122,750, and we had $25,887 available under the senior credit facility.
We have entered into various financing agreements, which were used for the purchase of equipment.

13. Business Unit Segment Information
SFAS No. 131, Disclosures about Segments of an Enterprise and Related Information (“SFAS 131”), establishes annual and interim reporting standards for an enterprise’s operating segments and related disclosures about its products, services, geographic areas and major customers. An operating segment is defined as a component of an enterprise that engages in business activities from which it may earn revenues and incur expenses, and about which separate financial information is regularly evaluated by the Chief Operating Decision Maker (“CODM”) in deciding how to allocate resources. The CODM, as defined by SFAS 131, is the Company’s President and Chief Executive Officer (“CEO”).
Each of the operating segments is directly responsible for revenue and expenses related to their operations including direct regional administrative costs. Finance, information technology, human resources, and legal are shared functions that are not allocated back to the four operating segments. The CODM assesses the performance of each operating segment using information about its revenue and operating income (loss) before interest, taxes, and depreciation and amortization, but does not evaluate segments using discrete asset information. There are no inter-segment transactions and the Company does not allocate interest and other income, interest expense, depreciation and amortization or taxes to operating segments. The accounting policies for segment reporting are the same as for the Company as a whole.
The Company is managed based on regions administered by executive vice presidents. Three regions are generally organized geographically with the fourth region encompassing major airports and transportation operations nationwide. The following is a summary of revenues (excluding reimbursement of management contract expenses) and gross profit by regions for the three and six months ended June 30, 2009 and 2008. Information related to prior periods has been recast to conform to the current region alignment.

15. Income Taxes
For the three months ended June 30, 2009, the Company recognized income tax expense of $2,692 on pre-tax earnings of $6,920 compared to $3,612 income tax expense on pre-tax earnings of $8,889 for the three months ended June 30, 2008. For the six months ended June 30, 2009, the Company recognized income tax expense of $4,266 on pre-tax earnings of $10,892 compared to $6,590 income tax expense on pre-tax earnings of $16,144 for the six months ended June 30, 2008. Income tax expense is based on a projected annual effective tax rate of approximately 39.8% for the six months ended June 30, 2009 compared to approximately 40.8% for the six months ended June 30, 2008. The change in the Company’s effective tax rate resulted primarily from an increase in the Company’s benefit from federal income tax credits and a decrease in the Company’s U.S. tax liability related to foreign earnings.
In July 2006, FASB issued Statement of Financial Accounting Standards Interpretation No. 48 (“FIN 48”), Accounting for Uncertainty in Income Taxes. FIN 48 clarifies the accounting for uncertainty in income taxes recognized in an enterprise’s financial statements in accordance with SFAS 109, Accounting for Income Taxes. FIN 48 also prescribes a recognition threshold and measurement attribute for the financial statement recognition and measurement of a tax position taken or expected to be taken in a tax return. The Company recognizes potential interest and penalties related to uncertain tax positions, if any, in income tax expense. Upon adoption, the Company completed a detailed analysis of its tax positions and determined that the implementation of FIN 48 did not have an impact on the Company’s financial position or results from operations. As of June 30, 2009, the Company has not identified any tax positions that would have a material impact on the Company’s financial position.
The tax years that remain subject to examination for the Company’s major tax jurisdictions at June 30, 2009 are shown below:
         
2004 – 2008

16. Hurricane Katrina
On May 2, 2008, we entered into a definitive settlement agreement with our insurance carrier to finalize all of our open claims with respect to Hurricane Katrina. The settlement agreement was for $4,225 of which $2,000 was received previously. We were required to reimburse the owners of the leased and managed locations for property damage of approximately $2,228. After payment of settlement fees, expenses and other amounts due under contractual arrangements, in the second quarter of 2008, we recorded $1,997 in pre-tax income, of which $1,360 was recorded as parking services revenue lease contracts and $217 was recorded as parking services revenue management contracts, and $420 was recorded as a reduction of general and administrative expenses.
17. Subsequent Event
On July 1, 2009, the Company acquired the assets of Gameday Management Group, U.S., an Orlando-based company that plans and operates transportation and parking systems for major stadium and sporting events.
As stated in Note 5, we adopted the provisions of Statement No. 165, Subsequent Events, during the second quarter of 2009. The Company has evaluated subsequent events through the date and time the financial statements were issued on August 7, 2009.

Overview
Our Business
We manage parking facilities in urban markets and at airports across the United States and in three Canadian provinces. We do not own any facilities, but instead enter into contractual relationships with property owners or managers.
We operate our clients’ properties through two types of arrangements: management contracts and leases. Under a management contract, we typically receive a base monthly fee for managing the facility, and we may also receive an incentive fee based on the achievement of facility performance objectives. We also receive fees for ancillary services. Typically, all of the underlying revenues and expenses under a standard management contract flow through to our clients rather than to us. However, some management contracts, which are referred to as “reverse” management contracts, usually provide for larger management fees and require us to pay various costs. Under lease arrangements, we generally pay to the property owner either a fixed annual rent, a percentage of gross customer collections or a combination thereof. We collect all revenues under lease arrangements and we are responsible for most operating expenses, but we are typically not responsible for major maintenance, capital expenditures or real estate taxes. Margins for lease contracts vary significantly, not only due to operating performance, but also due to variability of parking rates in different cities and varying space utilization by parking facility type and location. As of June 30, 2009, we operated 90% of our locations under management contracts and 10% under leases.
In evaluating our financial condition and operating performance, management’s primary focus is on our gross profit, total general and administrative expense and general and administrative expense as a percentage of our gross profit. Although the underlying economics to us of management contracts and leases are similar, the manner in which we are required to account for them differs. Revenue from leases includes all gross customer collections derived from our leased locations (net of parking tax), whereas revenue from management contracts only includes our contractually agreed upon management fees and amounts attributable to ancillary services. Gross customer collections at facilities under management contracts, therefore, are not included in our revenue. Accordingly, while a change in the proportion of our operating agreements that are structured as leases versus management contracts may cause significant fluctuations in reported revenue and expense of parking services, that change will not artificially affect our gross profit. For example, as of June 30, 2009, 90% of our locations were operated under management contracts and 89% of our gross profit for the six month period ended June 30, 2009 was derived from management contracts. Only 52% of total revenue (excluding reimbursement of management contract expenses), however, was from management contracts because under those contracts the revenue collected from parking customers belongs to our clients. Therefore, gross profit and total general and administrative expense, rather than revenue, are management’s primary focus.
General Business Trends
We believe that sophisticated commercial real estate developers and property managers and owners recognize the potential for parking and related services to be a profit generator rather than a cost center. Often, the parking experience makes both the first and the last impressions on their properties’ tenants and visitors. By outsourcing these services, they are able to capture additional profit by leveraging the unique operational skills and controls that an experienced parking management company can offer. Our ability to consistently deliver a uniformly high level of parking and related services and maximize the profit to our clients improves our ability to win contracts and retain existing locations. Our location retention rate for the twelve month period ended June 30, 2009 was 89%, compared to 91% for the year-ago period, which also reflects our decision not to renew, or terminate, unprofitable contracts.
For the three months ended June 30, 2009 compared to the three months ended June 30, 2008, average gross profit per location decreased by 11.3% from $10.6 thousand to $9.4 thousand, primarily due to the economic downturn and a negative fluctuation in prior years insurance reserve adjustments, in addition to the Hurricane Katrina settlement received in 2008 that did not recur in 2009.
Summary of Operating Facilities
We focus our operations in core markets where a concentration of locations improves customer service levels and operating margins. The following table reflects our facilities operated at the end of the periods indicated:

Table of Contents

Revenue
We recognize parking services revenue from lease and management contracts as the related services are provided. Substantially all of our revenues come from the following two sources:
   
Parking services revenue—lease contracts. Parking services revenues related to lease contracts consist of all revenue received at a leased facility, including parking receipts (net of parking tax), consulting and real estate development fees, gains on sales of contracts and payments for exercising termination rights.
   
Parking services revenue—management contracts. Management contract revenue consists of management fees, including both fixed and performance-based fees, and amounts attributable to ancillary services such as accounting, equipment leasing, payments received for exercising termination rights, consulting, developmental fees, gains on sales of contracts, as well as insurance and other value-added services with respect to managed locations. We believe we generally purchase required insurance at lower rates than our clients can obtain on their own because we effectively self-insure for all liability and worker’s compensation claims by maintaining a large per-claim deductible. As a result, we have generated operating income on the insurance provided under our management contracts by focusing on our risk management efforts and controlling losses. Management contract revenues do not include gross customer collections at the managed locations as this revenue belongs to the property owner rather than to us. Management contracts generally provide us with a management fee regardless of the operating performance of the underlying facility.
Conversions between type of contracts (lease or management) are typically determined by our client and not us. Although the underlying economics to us of management contracts and leases are similar, the manner in which we account for them differs substantially.
Reimbursement of Management Contract Expense
Reimbursement of management contract expense consists of the direct reimbursement from the property owner for operating expenses incurred under a management contract.
Cost of Parking Services
Our cost of parking services consists of the following:
   
Cost of parking services—lease contracts. The cost of parking services under a lease arrangement consists of contractual rental fees paid to the facility owner and all operating expenses incurred in connection with operating the leased facility. Contractual fees paid to the facility owner are generally based on either a fixed contractual amount or a percentage of gross revenue or a combination thereof. Generally, under a lease arrangement we are not responsible for major capital expenditures or real estate taxes.
   
Cost of parking services—management contracts. The cost of parking services under a management contract is generally the responsibility of the facility owner. As a result, these costs are not included in our results of operations. However, our reverse management contracts, which typically provide for larger management fees, do require us to pay for certain costs.
Gross Profit
Gross profit equals our revenue less the cost of generating such revenue. This is the key metric we use to examine our performance because it captures the underlying economic benefit to us of both lease contracts and management contracts.
General and Administrative Expenses
General and administrative expenses include salaries, wages, payroll taxes, insurance, travel and office related expenses for our headquarters, field offices, supervisory employees, chairman of the board and board of directors.

Depreciation and Amortization
Depreciation is determined using a straight-line method over the estimated useful lives of the various asset classes or in the case of leasehold improvements, over the initial term of the operating lease or its useful life, whichever is shorter. Intangible assets determined to have finite lives are amortized over their remaining useful life.
Valuation Allowance Related to Long-Term Receivables
Valuation allowance related to long-term receivables is recorded when there is an extended length of time estimated for collection of long-term receivables.
Seasonality
During the first quarter of each year, seasonality impacts our performance with regard to moderating revenues, with the reduced levels of travel most clearly reflected in the parking activity associated with our airport and hotel businesses as well as increases in certain costs of parking services, such as snow removal, both of which negatively affect gross profit. Although our revenues and profitability are affected by the seasonality of the business, general and administrative costs are relatively stable throughout the fiscal year.

Parking services revenue—lease contracts. Lease contract revenue decreased $4.3 million, or 10.8%, to $35.7 million in the three months ended June 30, 2009, compared to $40.0 million for the three months ended June 30, 2008. The decrease resulted primarily from a decrease in same location short-term parking revenue, conversions, and a decrease of $1.4 million related to the Hurricane Katrina settlement received in 2008, which did not recur in 2009, included in contract expirations, which was partially offset by increases from our acquisitions and new locations. Same location revenue for those facilities, which as of June 30, 2009 are the comparative periods for the two years presented, decreased 5.5%. Revenue associated with contract expirations relates to contracts that expired during the current period.

Parking services revenue—management contracts. Management contract revenue increased $0.9 million, or 2.5%, to $37.3 million for three months ended June 30, 2009, compared to $36.4 million for the three months ended June 30, 2008. The increase resulted primarily from same location revenue, new locations and acquisitions, partially offset by decreases in revenue from contract expirations, which includes a $0.2 million decrease related to the Hurricane Katrina settlement received in 2008, that did not recur in 2009. Same locations revenue for those facilities, which as of June 30, 2009 are the comparative for the two years presented, increased 8.6%.
Reimbursement of management contract expense. Reimbursement of management contract expenses decreased $1.7 million, or 1.7%, to $97.6 million for the three months ended June 30, 2009, compared to $99.3 million for the three months ended June 30, 2008. This decrease resulted from a reduction in reimbursements for costs incurred on behalf of owners.

The decrease resulted primarily from decreases in costs related to contract expirations, same locations and conversions, partially offset by increases in costs related to new locations and acquisitions. Same locations costs for those facilities which as of June 30, 2009 are the comparative for the two years presented, decreased 4.3%. Same location rent expense for lease contracts decreased primarily as a result of contingent rental payments on the decrease in revenue for same locations.
Cost of parking services—management contracts.

The increase resulted primarily from increases in costs related to same locations, new locations and acquisitions, partially offset by decreases in costs related to contract expirations. There was no impact on costs for those management contracts which converted to a lease contract. Same location costs for those facilities, which as of June 30, 2009 are the comparative period for the two years presented, increased 22.0%. Same location increase in operating expenses for management contracts primarily result from negative fluctuations in prior years insurance reserve adjustments increases in costs associated with reverse management contracts and the cost of providing management services.
Reimbursed management contract expense. Reimbursed management contract expense decreased $1.7 million, or 1.7%, to $97.6 million, for the three months ended June 30, 2009, compared to $99.3 million for the three months ended June 30, 2008. This decrease resulted from a reduction in reimbursed cost incurred on the behalf of owners.

Gross profit—lease contracts. Gross profit for lease contracts decreased $2.5 million, or 47.2%, to $2.8 million for the three months ended June 30, 2009, compared to $5.3 million for the three months ended June 30, 2008. Gross profit percentage for lease contracts decreased to 7.8% for the three months ended June 30, 2009, compared to 13.3% for the three months ended June 30, 2008. Gross profit lease contracts decreases on same locations were primarily the result of a decrease in short-term parking revenue, without an equal and corresponding decrease in costs. Gross profit lease contracts decreases on contract expirations were primarily the result of the Hurricane Katrina settlement of $1.4 million received in 2008, that did not recur in 2009.
Gross profit—management contracts. Gross profit for management contracts decreased $0.8 million, or 4.4%, to $17.4 million for the three months ended June 30, 2009, compared to $18.2 million for the three months ended June 30, 2008. Gross profit percentage for management contracts decreased to 46.6% for the three months ended June 30, 2009 compared to 50.0% in the three months ended June 30, 2008. Gross profit for management contracts decreases were primarily the result of our same locations and our contract expirations. Gross profit percentage on same locations accounted for most of the decline on a percentage basis, primarily due to negative fluctuations in prior years insurance reserve adjustments, increases in cost associated with reverse management contracts and the cost of providing management services.
General and administrative expenses. General and administrative expenses decreased $1.7 million, or 14.2%, to $10.3 million for the three months ended June 30, 2009, compared to $12.0 million for the three months ended June 30, 2008. This decrease resulted primarily from decreases in payroll and payroll related expenses of $1.0 million, a charge of $0.4 million related to post-retirement benefits in 2008 that did not recur, a decrease of $0.1 million related to training, a decrease of $0.1 million related to accounting and audit fees, a decrease of $0.2 million related to outsourcing fees, decreases in other costs of $0.3 million, partially offset by $0.4 million related to the 2008 Hurricane Katrina settlement, which did not recur in 2009.

Interest expense. Interest expense increased $0.4 million, or 40.7%, to $1.5 million for the three months ended June 30, 2009, as compared to $1.1 million for the three months ended June 30, 2008. This increase resulted primarily from increased borrowings.
Interest income. Interest income was $0.1 million for the three months ended June 30, 2009 and did not change significantly compared to the three months ended June 30, 2008.
Income tax expense. Income tax expense decreased $0.9 million, or 25.5%, to $2.7 million for the three months ended June 30, 2009, as compared to $3.6 million for the three months ended June 30, 2008. A decrease in our pre-tax income resulted in a $0.8 million decrease in income tax expense. Our effective tax rate was 38.9% for the three months ended June 30, 2009 and 40.6% for the three months ended June 30, 2008, which resulted in a $0.1 million decrease in income tax expense.
Segments
SFAS No. 131, Disclosures about Segments of an Enterprise and Related Information (“SFAS 131”), establishes annual and interim reporting standards for an enterprise’s operating segments and related disclosures about its products, services, geographic areas and major customers. An operating segment is defined as a component of an enterprise that engages in business activities from which it may earn revenues and incur expenses, and about which separate financial information is regularly evaluated by the Chief Operating Decision Maker (“CODM”) in deciding how to allocate resources. The CODM, as defined by SFAS 131, is our President and Chief Executive Officer (“CEO”).
The Company is managed based on regions administered by executive vice presidents. Three regions are generally organized geographically with the fourth region encompassing major airports and transportation operations nationwide. The following is a summary of revenues (excluding reimbursement of management contract expenses) by region for the three months ended June 30, 2009 and 2008. Information related to prior years has been recast to conform to the new region alignment.
Region One encompasses Delaware, District of Columbia, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Kansas, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Rhode Island, Tennessee, Vermont, Virginia, and Wisconsin.
Region Two encompasses Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, and Ontario.
Region Three encompasses Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Louisiana, Nevada, Texas, Utah, Washington, and Wyoming.
Region Four encompasses all major airport and transportation operations nationwide.
Other consists of ancillary revenue that is not specifically identifiable to a region and reserve adjustments related to prior years.
The following tables present the material factors that impact our financial statements on an operating segment basis.

Lease contract revenue decreased primarily due to our same locations, contract expirations and conversions. Regions one, three and four recorded a decrease in same location revenue. Same location revenue in region four decreased compared to prior year due to the economic impact of reduced travel. Same location revenue in region one and three decreased primarily due to decreases in short-term parking revenue and contract expirations. Contract expirations in region three includes the $1.4 million Hurricane Katrina settlement received in 2008, that did not recur in 2009.
All regions recorded increases in management contract revenue from new locations. Contract expirations in region three includes the $0.2 million Hurricane Katrina settlement received in 2008 that did not recur in 2009.

Same location costs decreased primarily due to decreases in rent expense primarily as a result of contingent rental payments on the decrease in revenue for some locations and a reduction in payroll and payroll related.
Cost of parking services management contracts primarily increased due to same location costs, primarily related to increases in costs associated with reverse management contracts and the cost of providing management services. The other region amounts in same location costs primarily represent prior year insurance reserve adjustments.

Gross profit for lease contracts declined primarily due to same locations and contract expirations. Region one, three and four experienced a decline in same location profit primarily due to a decline in revenue that exceeded the decline in costs, primarily associated to decreases in short-term parking revenue. Region three experienced a decline in gross profit contract expirations due to the Hurricane Katrina settlement recorded in revenue for 2008, that did not recur in 2009.
Gross profit for management contracts declined primarily due to our same locations in region three and our contract expirations in region one. Region three experienced a decline in gross profit contract expirations due to the Hurricane Katrina settlement recorded in revenue for 2008, that did not recur in 2009.

General and administrative expenses on a segment basis represent direct administrative costs for each region. The other region consists primarily of the corporate headquarters. The other region decreased primarily related to payroll and payroll related and post-retirement benefits, partially offset by the Hurricane Katrina settlement received in 2008 that did not recur in 2009.

Lease contract revenue decreased $7.3 million, or 9.4%, to $70.4 million for the six months ended June 30, 2009, compared to $77.7 million for the six months ended June 30, 2008. The decrease resulted primarily from a decrease in same location short-term parking revenue conversions, and a decrease of $1.4 million related to the Hurricane Katrina settlement received in 2008, which did not recur in 2009, included in contract expirations, which was partially offset by increases from our new locations and acquisitions. Same location revenue for those facilities, which as of June 30, 2009 are the comparative periods for the two years presented, decreased 6.7%. Revenue associated with contract expirations relates to contracts that expired during the current period.
Parking services revenue—management contracts. Management contract revenue increased $3.3 million, or 4.6%, to $75.6 million for the six months ended June 30, 2009, compared to $72.3 million for the six months ended June 30, 2008. The increase resulted primarily from same location revenue, new locations and acquisitions, partially offset by decreases in revenue from contract expirations, which includes a $0.2 million decrease related to the Hurricane Katrina settlement received in 2008, that did not recur in 2009. Same locations revenue for those facilities, which as of June 30, 2009 are the comparative periods for the two years presented, increased 10.0%.
Reimbursement of management contract expense. Reimbursement of management contract expenses increased $1.4 million, or 0.7%, to $200.2 million for the six months ended June 30, 2009, compared to $198.8 million for the six months ended June 30, 2008. This increase resulted from additional reimbursements for costs incurred on behalf of owners.

Cost of parking services—lease contracts. Cost of parking services for lease contracts decreased $3.7 million, or 5.3%, to $65.9 million for the six months ended June 30, 2009, compared to $69.6 million for the six months ended June 30, 2008. The decrease resulted primarily from decreases in costs related to contract expirations, same locations and conversions, partially offset by increases in costs related to new locations and acquisitions. Same locations costs for those facilities which as of June 30, 2009 are the comparative for the two years presented, decreased 5.3%. Same location rent expense for lease contracts decreased primarily as a result of contingent rental payments on the decrease in revenue for same locations.
Cost of parking services—management contracts. Cost of parking services for management contracts increased $5.1 million, or 14.5%, to $40.3 million for the six months ended June 30, 2009, compared to $35.2 million for the six months ended June 30, 2008. The increase resulted primarily from increases in costs related to same locations, new locations and acquisitions, partially offset by decreases in costs related to contract expirations. There was no impact on costs for those management contracts which converted to a lease contract. Same location costs for those facilities, which as of June 30, 2009 are the comparative for the two years presented, increased 27.0%. Same location increase in operating expenses for management contracts primarily result from negative fluctuations in prior years insurance reserve adjustments, increases in costs associated with reverse management contracts and the cost of providing management services.
Reimbursed management contract expense. Reimbursed management contract expense increased $1.4 million, or 0.7%, to $200.2 million for the six months ended June 30, 2009, compared to $198.8 million for the six months ended June 30, 2008. This increase resulted from additional reimbursed cost incurred on the behalf of owners.

Gross profit—lease contracts. Gross profit for lease contracts decreased $3.6 million, or 44.4%, to $4.5 million for six months ended June 30, 2009, compared to $8.1 million for the six months ended June 30, 2008. Gross profit percentage for lease contracts decreased to 6.4% for the six months ended June 30, 2009, compared to 10.4% for the six months ended June 30, 2008. Gross profit lease contracts decreases on same locations were primarily the result of a decrease in short-term parking revenue, without an equal and corresponding decrease in costs. Gross profit lease contracts decreases on contract expirations were primarily the result of the Hurricane Katrina settlement of $1.4 million received in 2008, that did not recur in 2009.
Gross profit—management contracts. Gross profit for management contracts decreased $1.8 million, or 4.9%, to $35.3 million for the six months ended June 30, 2009, compared to $37.1 million for the six months ended June 30, 2008. Gross profit percentage for management contracts decreased to 46.7% for the six months ended June 30, 2009, compared to 51.3% for the six months ended June 30, 2008. Gross profit for management contracts decreases were primarily the result of our same locations and our contract expirations. Gross profit percentage on same locations accounted for most of the decline on a percentage basis, primarily due to negative fluctuations in prior years insurance reserve adjustments, increases in costs associated with reverse management contracts and the cost of providing management services.
General and administrative expenses. General and administrative expenses decreased $0.3 million, or 1.5%, to $23.1 million for the six months ended June 30, 2009, compared to $23.4 million for the six months ended June 30, 2008. This decrease resulted primarily from decreases in payroll and payroll related expenses of $0.2 million, a decrease of $0.4 million related to post-retirement benefits in 2008 that did not recur, a $0.4 million credit related to the settlement agreement from a prior year acquisition, a decrease of $0.2 million related to outsourcing fees, decreases in other costs of $0.1 million, which was partially offset by increases in legal-related expenses of $0.6 million, related to the sale by the Company’s former majority shareholder of its stake in the Company, and $0.4 million related to the 2008 Hurricane Katrina settlement, which did not recur in 2009.

Interest expense. Interest expense increased $0.4 million, or 13.8%, to $3.0 million for the six months ended June 30, 2009, as compared to $2.6 million for the six months ended June 30, 2008. This increase resulted from increased borrowings.
Interest income. Interest income increased $0.1 million, or 95.2%, to $0.2 million for the six months ended June 30, 2009, as compared to $0.1 million for the six months ended June 30, 2008. This increase resulted primarily from an interest bearing receivable that did not occur in the prior year.
Income tax expense. Income tax expense decreased $2.3 million, or 35.3%, to $4.3 million for the six months ended June 30, 2009, as compared to $6.6 million for the six months ended June 30, 2008. A decrease in our pre-tax income resulted in a $2.1 million decrease in income tax expense. Our effective tax rate was 39.2% for the six months ended June 30, 2009 and 40.8% for the six months ended June 30, 2008, which resulted in a $0.2 million decrease in income tax expense.
Segments
SFAS No. 131, Disclosures about Segments of an Enterprise and Related Information (“SFAS 131”), establishes annual and interim reporting standards for an enterprise’s operating segments and related disclosures about its products, services, geographic areas and major customers. An operating segment is defined as a component of an enterprise that engages in business activities from which it may earn revenues and incur expenses, and about which separate financial information is regularly evaluated by the Chief Operating Decision Maker (“CODM”) in deciding how to allocate resources. The CODM, as defined by SFAS 131, is our President and Chief Executive Officer (“CEO”).
The Company is managed based on regions administered by executive vice presidents. Three regions are generally organized geographically with the fourth region encompassing major airports and transportation operations nationwide. The following is a summary of revenues (excluding reimbursement of management contract expenses) by region for the three months ended June 30, 2009 and 2008. Information related to prior years has been recast to conform to the new region alignment.
Region One encompasses Delaware, District of Columbia, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Kansas, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Rhode Island, Tennessee, Vermont, Virginia, and Wisconsin.
Region Two encompasses Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba and Ontario.
Region Three encompasses Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Louisiana, Nevada, Texas, Utah, Washington, and Wyoming.
Region Four encompasses all major airport and transportation operations nationwide.
Other consists of ancillary revenue that is not specifically identifiable to a region and reserve adjustments related to prior years.
The following tables present the material factors that impact our financial statements on an operating segment basis.

Lease contract revenue decreased primarily due to our same locations, contract expirations and conversions. Regions one, two, three and four recorded a decrease in same location revenue. Same location revenue decreased compared to prior year primarily due to a reduction in short-term parking revenue and contract expirations. Contract expirations in region three includes the $1.4 million Hurricane Katrina settlement received in 2008 that did not recur in 2009.
Regions one, two, three, and other recorded increases in management contract revenue from same location revenue compared to prior year. Regions one, two, and three added new services to existing contracts, which accounted for the increase in same location revenue. Contract expirations in region three includes the $0.2 million Hurricane Katrina settlement received in 2008, that did not recur in 2009.

Same location costs decreased primarily due to rent expense for lease contracts, as a result of contingent rental payments on the decrease in revenue for same locations and reductions in payroll and payroll related
Cost of parking services management contracts primarily increased due to costs associated with reverse management contracts and the cost of providing management services for same and new locations.

Gross profit for lease contracts declined primarily due to same locations.

Region three experienced a decline in gross profit contract expirations due to the Hurricane Katrina settlement recorded in revenue for 2008, that did not recur in 2009.
Gross profit for management contracts declined primarily due to our same locations and contract expirations in regions one, three and other. The other region declined in gross profit due to changes in prior years insurance reserve activity.

General and administrative expenses on a segment basis represent direct administrative costs for each region. The other region consists primarily of the corporate headquarters. The other region decreased primarily related to payroll and payroll related and post-retirement benefits, partially offset by legal fees related to the sale by the Company’s former majority shareholder of its stake in the Company. Region three increased primarily related to legal fees, partially offset by the Hurricane Katrina settlement received in 2008, that did not recur in 2009.

Liquidity and Capital Resources
Outstanding Indebtedness
On June 30, 2009, we had total indebtedness of approximately $126.6 million, an increase of $1.5 million from December 31, 2008. The $126.6 million includes:
   
$122.8 million under our senior credit facility; and
 
   
$3.8 million of other debt including capital lease obligations and obligations on seller notes and other indebtedness.
We believe that our cash flow from operations, combined with availability under our senior credit facility, which amounted to $25.9 million at June 30, 2009, will be sufficient to enable us to pay our indebtedness, or to fund other liquidity needs. We may need to refinance all or a portion of our indebtedness on or before their respective maturities. We believe that we will be able to refinance our indebtedness on commercially reasonable terms.
Senior Credit Facility
On July 15, 2008, we entered into an amended and restated credit agreement which restated our credit facility.
The $210.0 million revolving senior credit facility will expire in July 2013. The revolving senior credit facility includes a letter of credit sub-facility with a sublimit of $50.0 million.
The revolving senior credit facility bears interest, at our option, at either (1) LIBOR plus the applicable LIBOR Margin ranging between 2.00% and 3.50% depending on the ratio of our total funded indebtedness to our EBITDA from time to time (“Total Debt Ratio”) or (2) the Base Rate (as defined below) plus the applicable Base Rate Margin ranging between 0.50% and 2.00% depending on our Total Debt Ratio. We may elect interest periods of one, two, three or six months for LIBOR based borrowings. The Base Rate is the greater of (i) the rate publicly announced from time to time by Bank of America, N.A. as its “prime rate,” or (ii) the overnight federal funds rate plus 0.50%.
The senior credit facility includes a fixed charge ratio covenant, a total debt to EBITDA ratio covenant, a limit on our ability to incur additional indebtedness, issue preferred stock or pay dividends, and certain other restrictions on our activities. We are required to repay borrowings under the senior credit facility out of the proceeds of future issuances of debt or equity securities and asset sales, subject to certain customary exceptions. The senior credit facility is secured by substantially all of our assets and all assets acquired in the future (including a pledge of 100% of the stock of our existing and future domestic guarantor subsidiaries and 65% of the stock of our existing and future foreign subsidiaries).
We are in compliance with all of our financial covenants.
At June 30, 2009, we had $18.9 million of letters of credit outstanding under the senior credit facility, borrowings against the senior credit facility aggregated $122.8 million and we had $25.9 million available under the senior credit facility.
Interest Rate Cap Transactions
We use a variable rate senior credit facility to finance our operations. This facility exposes us to variability in interest payments due to changes in interest rates. If interest rates increase, interest expense increases and conversely, if interest rates decrease, interest expense also decreases. We believe that it is prudent to limit the exposure of an increase in interest rates.
In 2006 we entered into a Rate Cap Transaction with Bank of America, which allows us to limit our exposure on a portion of our borrowings under the Credit Agreement. Under the Rate Cap Transaction, we receive payments from Bank of America each quarterly period to the extent that the prevailing three month LIBOR during that period exceeds our cap rate of 5.75%. The Rate Cap Transaction caps our LIBOR interest rate on a notional amount of $50.0 million at 5.75% for a total of 36 months. The Rate Cap Transaction began as of August 4, 2006 and settles each quarter on a date that coincides with our quarterly interest payment dates under the Credit Agreement. This Rate Cap Transaction is classified as a cash flow hedge, and we calculate the effectiveness of the hedge on a quarterly basis. The ineffective portion of the cash flow hedge is recognized in current period earnings as an increase of interest expense.
At June 30, 2009, the fair value of the Rate Cap Transaction was immaterial. Total changes in the fair value of the Rate Cap Transaction for the six months ended June 30, 2009 was also immaterial.

Deficiency Payments
Pursuant to our obligations with respect to the parking garage operations at Bradley International Airport, we are required to make certain payments for the benefit of the State of Connecticut and for holders of special facility revenue bonds. The deficiency payments represent contingent interest bearing advances to the trustee to cover operating cash flow requirements. The payments, if any, are recorded as a receivable by us for which we are reimbursed from time to time as provided in the trust agreement. As of June 30, 2009, we have a receivable of $7.5 million, comprised of cumulative deficiency payments to the trustee, net of reimbursements. We believe these advances to be fully recoverable and therefore have not recorded a valuation allowance for them. We do not guarantee the payment of any principal or interest on any debt obligations of the State of Connecticut or the trustee.
We made deficiency payments (net of repayments received) of $1.5 million in the first six months of 2009 compared to $0.9 million in the first six months of 2008. We did not receive any payments for interest and premium income related to deficiency payments in the first six months of 2009 and 2008.

Daily Cash Collections
As a result of day-to-day activity at our parking locations, we collect significant amounts of cash. Lease contract revenue is generally deposited into our local bank accounts, with a portion remitted to our clients in the form of rental payments according to the terms of the leases. Under management contracts, some clients require us to deposit the daily receipts into one of our local bank accounts, with the cash in excess of our operating expenses and management fees remitted to the clients at negotiated intervals. Other clients require us to deposit the daily receipts into client accounts and the clients then reimburse us for operating expenses and pay our management fee subsequent to month-end. Some clients require a segregated account for the receipts and disbursements at locations. Our working capital and liquidity may be adversely affected if a significant number of our clients require us to deposit all parking revenues into their respective accounts.
Our liquidity also fluctuates on an intra-month and intra-year basis depending on the contract mix and timing of significant cash payments. Additionally, our ability to utilize cash deposited into our local accounts is dependent upon the availability and movement of that cash into our corporate account. For all these reasons, from time to time, we carry a significant cash balance, while also utilizing our senior credit facility.
Net Cash Provided by Operating Activities
Our primary sources of funds are cash flows from operating activities and changes in working capital. Net cash provided by operating activities totaled $7.8 million for the first six months of 2009. Cash provided included $13.3 million from operations which was offset by a net decrease in working capital of $5.4 million. The decrease in working capital resulted primarily from an increase of $1.5 million in notes and accounts receivable which primarily related to Bradley International Airport guarantor payments as described under “Deficiency Payments”, and a decrease of $3.9 million in other liabilities which primarily related to a reduction in accruals related to payments under employee incentive program.
Net cash provided by operating activities totaled $17.2 million for the first six months of 2008. Cash provided included $16.5 million from operations and a net increase in working capital of $0.6 million. The increase in working capital resulted primarily from an increase of $3.6 million in accounts payable which primarily resulted from the timing on payments to our clients and new business that are under management contracts as described under “Daily Cash Collections,” offset by a decrease of $2.5 million in notes and accounts receivable.
Net Cash Used in Investing Activities
Net cash used in investing activities totaled $3.1 million in the first six months of 2009. Cash used in investing activities for the first six months of 2009 included capital expenditures of $2.2 million for capital investments needed to secure and/or extend leased facilities, investment in information system enhancements and infrastructure, cost of contract purchases of $0.6 million and $0.3 million for contingent payments on previously acquired contracts.
Net cash used in investing activities totaled $8.2 million in the first six months of 2008. Cash used in investing activities for the first three months of 2008 included business acquisitions of $5.5 million, capital expenditures of $2.5 million for capital investments needed to secure and/or extend leased facilities, investment in information system enhancements and infrastructure, and cost of contract purchases of $0.2 million.
Net Cash Used in Financing Activities
Net cash used in financing activities totaled $2.5million in the first six months of 2009. Cash used in financing activities for 2009 included $3.9 million to repurchase our common stock, $0.6 million for payments on capital leases, $0.1 million in distribution to noncontrolling interests and $0.1 million for payments on long-term borrowings, partially offset by $2.2 million from our senior credit facility.
Net cash used in financing activities totaled $5.8 million in the first six months of 2008. Cash used in financing activities for 2008 included $12.9 million to repurchase our common stock, $0.9 million for payments on capital leases, $0.1 million for payments on long-term borrowings, $0.1 million in distribution to noncontrolling interests, $0.1 million for payments of debt issuance costs, offset by $7.5 million from our senior credit facility, $0.3 million from the exercise of stock options and $0.5 million in excess tax benefits related to stock option exercises.
Cash and Cash Equivalents
We had cash and cash equivalents of $10.5 million at June 30, 2009, compared to $8.3 million at December 31, 2008. The cash balances reflect our ability to utilize funds deposited into our local accounts and which based upon availability, timing of deposits and the subsequent movement of that cash into our corporate accounts may result in significant changes to our cash balances.

Item 3.  
Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures about Market Risk
Interest Rates
Our primary market risk exposure consists of risk related to changes in interest rates. We use a variable rate senior credit facility to finance our operations. This facility exposes us to variability in interest payments due to changes in interest rates. If interest rates increase, interest expense increases and conversely, if interest rates decrease, interest expense also decreases. We believe that it is prudent to limit the exposure of an increase in interest rates.
In 2006 we entered into a Rate Cap Transaction with Bank of America, which allows us to limit our exposure on a portion of our borrowings under the Credit Agreement. Under the Rate Cap Transaction, we receive payments from Bank of America each quarterly period to the extent that the prevailing three month LIBOR during that period exceeds our cap rate of 5.75%. The Rate Cap Transaction caps our LIBOR interest rate on a notional amount of $50.0 million at 5.75% for a total of 36 months. The Rate Cap Transaction began as of August 4, 2006 and settles each quarter on a date that coincides with our quarterly interest payment dates under the Credit Agreement. This Rate Cap Transaction is classified as a cash flow hedge, and we calculate the effectiveness of the hedge on a quarterly basis. The ineffective portion of the cash flow hedge is recognized in current period earnings as an increase of interest expense.
At June 30, 2009, the fair value of the Rate Cap Transaction was immaterial. Total changes in the fair value of the Rate Cap Transaction for the six months ended June 30, 2009 was also immaterial.
We do not enter into derivative instruments for any purpose other than cash flow hedging purposes.
Our $210.0 million senior credit facility provides for a $210.0 million variable rate revolving facility. In addition, the credit facility includes a letter of credit sub-facility with a sublimit of $50.0 million. Interest expense on such borrowing is sensitive to changes in the market rate of interest. If we were to borrow the entire $210.0 million available under the facility, a 1% increase in the average market rate would result in an increase in our annual interest expense of $2.10 million.
This amount is determined by considering the impact of the hypothetical interest rates on our borrowing cost, but does not consider the effects of the reduced level of overall economic activity that could exist in such an environment. Due to the uncertainty of the specific changes and their possible effects, the foregoing sensitivity analysis assumes no changes in our financial structure.
Foreign Currency Risk
Our exposure to foreign exchange risk is minimal. All foreign investments are denominated in U.S. dollars, with the exception of Canada. We had approximately $3.3 million of Canadian dollar denominated cash instruments at June 30, 2009. We had no Canadian dollar denominated debt instruments at June 30, 2009. We do not hold any hedging instruments related to foreign currency transactions. We monitor foreign currency positions and may enter into certain hedging instruments in the future should we determine that exposure to foreign exchange risk has increased.

Controls and Procedures

Based upon their evaluation, our chief executive officer, chief financial officer and corporate controller concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures were adequate and effective and designed to ensure that material information relating to us (including our consolidated subsidiaries) required to be disclosed by us in the reports we file under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the required time periods.
Changes in Internal Controls Over Financial Reporting
There have been no significant changes in our internal control over financial reporting that occurred during the last fiscal quarter that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal controls over financial reporting.

Limitations of the Effectiveness of Internal Control
A control system, no matter how well conceived and operated, can provide only reasonable, not absolute, assurance that the objectives of the internal control system are met. Because of the inherent limitations of any internal control system, no evaluation of controls can provide absolute assurance that all control issues, if any, within a company have been detected.
PART II. OTHER INFORMATION
Item 1A.  
Risk Factors
The following risk factor supplement the Company’s risk factors as disclosed in Item 1A of Part I of the Company’s 2008 Annual Report on Form 10-K, filed on March 13, 2009, and in Item 1A of Part II of the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, filed on May 7, 2009:
The offer or sale of a substantial amount of our common stock by our largest stockholders could have an adverse impact on the market price of our common stock.
In February 2009, we were informed by our majority stockholder at that time, Steamboat Industries LLC, that Steamboat intended to sell a majority (and potentially all or substantially all) of its stake in the Company. This proposed sale was intended to raise sufficient proceeds to repay a loan that Steamboat had with third-party lenders. The loan was secured by a pledge of all of Steamboat’s common stock in the Company and was in the amount of approximately $119 million as of May 15, 2009. Such third-party lenders provided Steamboat with extensions of the loan to May 15, 2009 to permit Steamboat sufficient time to effect such sale. Steamboat was not able to raise sufficient proceeds to repay the loan. Accordingly, on May 15, 2009, 7,581,842 shares were transferred by Steamboat to the following third-party lenders: GSO Special Situations Overseas Master Fund, Ltd.; GSO Special Situations Overseas Benefit Plan Fund, Ltd.; CML VII, LLC; GSO Special Situations Fund LP; and GSO Capital Opportunities Fund LP (collectively, the “Lenders”). Steamboat also transferred demand and piggy-back registration rights with respect to such common stock to the Lenders in connection with the foreclosure. The offer, sale, disposition or consummation of transactions involving substantial amounts of our common stock by the Lenders could have a significant negative impact on our stock price, particularly if such offers, sales, dispositions or transactions occur simultaneously or relatively close in time.
