In 2013, AutoNation reported record revenue of $17.5 billion, up 12%, and net income was $368 million. The company sold 183,372 vehicles in 2009, a 24.8% decline.

The company said in September it signed agreements to acquire Audi, Mercedes-Benz, Porsche and Volvo stores in the Seattle, WA area from Barrier Motors.

History

AutoNation's roots trace back to 1996, when current Chairman H. Wayne Huizenga invested in an Atlanta-based waste management company that later became Fort Lauderdale-based Republic Industries, Inc. Republic Industries would go on to acquire most of the more than 370 new vehicle franchises the Company operates today, as well as several waste management and vehicle rental companies, before changing its name on April 6, 1999 to "AutoNation, Inc."

In 2000, AutoNation spun off its rental car business made up of Alamo Rent-A-Car and National Car Rental into publicly-traded ANC Rental Corp.
