CARMEL, Ind. (Inside INdiana Business) — Carmel-based KAR Global (NYSE: KAR) is reporting full-year net income of $66.5 million in 2021, up from $500,000 the previous year. The company says the results were driven in part by strong growth in its digital dealer-to-dealer businesses.

KAR Global has developed a platform that provides wholesale vehicle remarketing services for dealers, buyers, fleet operators and more.

The company is also reporting fourth quarter net income of $5.1 million, compared to a loss of $17.1 million during the same period in 2020.

“Though commercial seller volumes remained constrained in the fourth quarter, I was pleased with our performance in the face of this challenge,” KAR Global Chief Executive Officer Peter Kelly said in written remarks. “We have maintained – and in some cases slightly increased – our share with commercial sellers while achieving strong double-digit growth in our digital dealer-to-dealer businesses. We believe our digital transformation strategy and leaner cost structure position us for faster growth and higher profitability as volumes return.”
