07/27/2011


  • Q2 EPS from Continuing Operations Up 36% to $0.79
  • Q2 Comparable EPS from Continuing Operations Up 59% to $0.92
  • Q2 Total Revenue Up 18%; Operating Revenue Grows 15%
  • Full-Year 2011 Comparable EPS Forecast Raised $0.43 to Range of $3.33 to $3.43

MIAMI--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Ryder System, Inc. (NYSE:R), a leader in transportation and supply chain management solutions, today reported earnings per diluted share (EPS) from continuing operations of $0.79 for the three-month period ended June 30, 2011, up 36% from earnings per diluted share of $0.58 in the year-earlier period. Earnings from continuing operations were $40.9 million, up 34% from $30.6 million in the year-earlier period. Earnings per diluted share and earnings from continuing operations for the second quarter of 2011 included a charge from a tax law change of $0.10 or $5.4 million and acquisition-related transaction costs of $0.03 or $1.5 million. Excluding these items, comparable earnings per diluted share from continuing operations for the second quarter of 2011 were $0.92, up 59% from $0.58 in the second quarter of 2010. Comparable earnings from continuing operations of $47.8 million for the second quarter of 2011 were up 56% from $30.6 million in the year-earlier period. The increase in comparable earnings primarily reflects better organic performance in commercial rental and used vehicle sales, the benefit of acquisitions, and growth in supply chain business.

Total revenue for the second quarter of 2011 was $1.51 billion, up 18% from $1.29 billion in the same period last year. Operating revenue (revenue excluding Fleet Management Solutions fuel and all subcontracted transportation), was $1.19 billion, up 15% compared with $1.04 billion in the year-earlier period, reflecting the benefit of acquisitions and organic growth. Fleet Management Solutions (FMS) business segment total revenue increased 14% due primarily to higher operating revenue and fuel services revenue. FMS operating revenue increased 10% due to higher commercial rental revenue and the benefit of acquisitions. Supply Chain Solutions (SCS) business segment total and operating revenue increased 26% largely reflecting the favorable impact of an acquisition. Dedicated Contract Carriage (DCC) business segment total revenue increased 22% and operating revenue increased 19%, reflecting an acquisition and the pass through of higher fuel costs.

Net earnings per diluted share (including discontinued operations) for the three-month period ended June 30, 2011 were $0.77 versus $0.56 in the year-earlier period. Earnings per diluted share from discontinued operations (previously announced in 2009) totaled a loss of $0.02 for both periods. Net earnings for the second quarter of 2011 were $40.0 million versus $29.8 million in the year-earlier period.

Ryder Chairman and CEO Greg Swienton said, “Although the economic environment remains challenging and inconsistent, we have been very successful in taking advantage of market opportunities to deliver second quarter and first-half earnings that exceeded our plan. In Fleet Management Solutions, our commercial rental and used vehicle sales continued to perform extremely well and we saw improvement in full service lease retention and new sales. As anticipated, improved FMS performance was partially offset by higher running costs on a relatively older lease fleet. In Supply Chain Solutions, we benefited from improved volumes across all of our targeted industry sectors, and new business wins. While the Japan natural disaster reduced earnings by $0.02 per share in the second quarter, this impact was lower than we had anticipated. In addition to our organic growth, all of our business segments have benefited from the strong performance of acquisitions, including last month’s Hill Hire acquisition as well as Total Logistic Control, which was completed in December of 2010. Additionally, our continued financial strength allowed us to recently announce Ryder’s seventh dividend increase since 2005.”

Year-to-Date Operating Results

Revenue for the six months ended June 30, 2011 was $2.94 billion, up 17% from $2.51 billion in the same period of 2010. Operating revenue (revenue excluding FMS fuel and all subcontracted transportation) for the first six months of 2011 was $2.32 billion, up 15% from $2.02 billion in the first six months of 2010. Ryder’s 2011 year-to-date earnings from continuing operations were $66.8 million, up 54% compared with $43.5 million in the year-earlier period. Earnings per diluted share from continuing operations were $1.29 for the first six months of 2011 compared with $0.82 for the same period of 2010. Comparable year-to-date earnings from continuing operations were up 71% to $74.2 million, and comparable earnings per diluted share from continuing operations were up 74% to $1.43. Year-to-date net earnings, including discontinued operations, were $65.2 million, compared with $42.2 million in the year-earlier period. Net earnings per diluted share were $1.26 for the first six months of 2011 compared with $0.79 for the same period of 2010.

Second Quarter Business Segment Operating Results

Fleet Management Solutions

In the FMS business segment, total revenue in the second quarter of 2011 was $1.06 billion, up 14% compared with the year-earlier period, due to higher operating revenue and fuel services revenue. Fuel services revenue in the second quarter of 2011 increased 29% compared with the same period in 2010 due to higher fuel prices passed through to customers. Operating revenue (revenue excluding fuel) in the second quarter of 2011 was $778.9 million, up 10% compared with the year-earlier period. Full service lease revenue increased 3% in the second quarter of 2011 due to acquisitions. On June 8, 2011, Ryder acquired U.K.-based commercial vehicle leasing and rental company Hill Hire plc, which added approximately £90 million (approximately $147 million) in annual revenue, as well as 4,000 heavy duty vehicles, and 10,000 trailers to the FMS business segment. Commercial rental revenue increased 38% reflecting improved global market demand and higher pricing.

The FMS business segment’s pre-tax earnings were $67.5 million in the second quarter of 2011, up 46% compared with $46.2 million in the same period of 2010. This increase primarily reflected significantly better commercial rental performance, improved used vehicle sales results, and the benefit of the four FMS acquisitions closed in 2011. As expected, these items were partially offset by lower full service lease results, increased compensation-related expenses, and planned higher spending on growth initiatives. Commercial rental performance improved as a result of increased market demand and higher pricing on a 19% larger average fleet (16% excluding acquisitions). Rental power fleet utilization was 78.7% for the second quarter of 2011, an improvement of 100 basis points from the year-earlier period. Used vehicle sales results were favorably impacted by higher pricing, as well as lower average quarterly inventory levels compared with the prior-year period. Full service lease results continued to be adversely impacted by higher maintenance costs on a comparatively older fleet. Business segment pre-tax earnings as a percentage of operating revenue were 8.7% in the second quarter of 2011, up 220 basis points compared with 6.5% in the same quarter a year ago.

Supply Chain Solutions

In the SCS business segment, second quarter 2011 total revenue was $389.6 million, up 26% from the comparable period in 2010. Second quarter 2011 operating revenue (revenue excluding subcontracted transportation) of $315.1 million also increased 26% from the comparable period a year ago. SCS total revenue and operating revenue comparisons benefited from the acquisition of Total Logistic Control (TLC) in December of 2010. Operating revenue also benefited from higher volume across all industry sectors and new business. These benefits were partially offset by the anticipated decline in automotive volumes related to natural disasters in Japan.

The SCS business segment’s pre-tax earnings in the second quarter of 2011 were $17.2 million up 37% from $12.6 million in the same quarter of 2010. The improvement was driven by the TLC acquisition and higher volumes across all industry sectors, new business, and favorable insurance development. Second quarter 2011 results were negatively impacted by approximately $2.7 million from automotive production cuts related to the natural disasters in Japan. Second quarter 2011 pre-tax earnings for the business segment as a percentage of operating revenue were 5.5%, up 50 basis points compared with 5.0% in the same quarter of 2010.

Dedicated Contract Carriage

In the DCC business segment, second quarter 2011 total revenue of $150.4 million was up 22% compared with $123.0 million in the second quarter of 2010. Operating revenue (revenue excluding subcontracted transportation) in the second quarter of 2011 was $141.7 million, up 19% compared with $118.6 million in the year-earlier period. Total revenue and operating revenue increased due to the acquisition of The Scully Companies (Scully) in January 2011 and the pass-through of higher fuel costs.

The DCC business segment’s pre-tax earnings in the second quarter of 2011 were $9.8 million, up 16% compared with $8.4 million in the second quarter of 2010. Business segment pre-tax earnings were positively impacted by the Scully acquisition and favorable insurance claims development. These benefits were partially offset by lower operating performance. Business segment pre-tax earnings as a percentage of operating revenue were 6.9% in the second quarter of 2011, down 20 basis points compared with 7.1% in the year-earlier period, reflecting the comparative impact of higher fuel costs.

Corporate Financial Information

Central Support Services

Central Support Services (CSS) are overhead costs incurred to support all business segments and product lines. Most CSS costs are allocated to the business segments. In the second quarter of 2011, CSS costs were $51.8 million, up from $45.6 million in the year-earlier period reflecting increased compensation-related expenses, and information technology investments.

Restructuring and Other Items

Pre-tax restructuring and other items from continuing operations in the second quarter of 2011 totaled $1.7 million ($1.5 million after tax), or $0.03 per diluted share. The charge represents transaction costs associated with the Hill Hire acquisition. In the second half of 2011, Ryder expects restructuring and other items of approximately $4.5 million ($3.3 million after tax), or $0.06 per diluted share, related to the integration of the Hill Hire acquisition.

Income Taxes

The Company’s effective income tax rate from continuing operations for the second quarter of 2011 was 45.5% of pre-tax earnings compared with 41.4% in the year-earlier period. The increase in the tax rate for the second quarter of 2011 reflects a tax law change in Michigan, of $5.4 million (7.2% of pre-tax earnings), which reduced earnings per share by $0.10 in the quarter. Excluding this impact, the tax rate decreased due to a higher proportionate amount of earnings in lower tax rate jurisdictions and lower contingent tax accruals.

Capital Expenditures

As planned, year-to-date capital expenditures from continuing operations increased to $880 million through the second quarter of 2011, compared with $630 million in the same period of 2010. Net capital expenditures (including proceeds from the sale of assets) from continuing operations were $737 million, up from $527 million in the same period of 2010. The increase in capital expenditures primarily reflects investment to refresh and modestly grow the commercial rental fleet.

Cash Flow

Operating cash flow from continuing operations through June 30, 2011 was $473 million, down from $531 million in the same period of 2010, due to increased working capital needs. Total cash generated (including proceeds from used vehicle sales) from continuing operations through June 30, 2011, was $646 million, compared with $668 million in the same period of 2010. Free cash flow from continuing operations through June 30, 2011 was negative $172 million, down from $123 million for the same period of 2010, primarily due to increased vehicle investments. The Company now forecasts full year 2011 free cash flow to improve by approximately $50 million from its previous forecast due primarily to higher earnings and increased proceeds from used vehicle sales. The new mid-point of full year 2011 free cash flow is forecast to be negative $215 million versus a previous forecast mid-point of negative $265 million. The full-year free cash flow forecast primarily reflects planned higher investments in growing and replenishing the Company’s vehicle fleet.

Leverage

Balance sheet debt as of June 30, 2011 increased by $495 million compared with year-end 2010, due primarily to recent acquisitions and increased investment in vehicles. The leverage ratio for balance sheet debt as of June 30, 2011 was 222%, compared with 196% at year-end 2010. Total obligations to equity as of June 30, 2011 were 228%, compared with 203% at year-end 2010. The Company now anticipates total obligations to equity at year end 2011 to be approximately 220%, below its target range of 250% to 300%.

2011 Outlook

Commenting on Ryder’s outlook, Mr. Swienton said, “We expect continuing positive trends and progress in many areas of our business through the remainder of 2011. In Fleet Management Solutions, this includes very strong performance in our commercial rental and used vehicle sales product lines, as well as some organic expansion of lease fleet levels in the second half of the year. In our Supply Chain Solutions business, we expect volumes and performance trends to continue to strengthen, aided in part by the recovery of production levels that were previously impacted by natural disasters in Japan. Our financial strength through the downturn has enabled us to invest in five acquisitions since December of last year. Thanks to the excellent work of our integration teams, these operations are already contributing and are expected to deliver greater synergies and increasing results going forward. Our recent and ongoing investments in efficient technologies, product improvements and innovations, and expanded sales and marketing capabilities are also showing a positive influence on our business. Ryder is very well positioned to drive substantially improved results in the near term while advancing our competitive position and ability to leverage higher earnings in future periods.”

Taking all of these factors into consideration, we are raising our full-year 2011 comparable earnings forecast by $0.43 to a new range of $3.33 to $3.43 per share. This includes the benefit of the Hill Hire acquisition, lower than previously anticipated impacts from natural disasters in Japan, as well as continued strong performance in commercial rental and used vehicle sales. Additionally, we are forecasting third quarter 2011 earnings to be in the range of $0.98 to $1.03 per share.”

About Ryder

Ryder System, Inc. is a FORTUNE 500® commercial transportation, logistics and supply chain management solutions company. Ryder’s stock (NYSE: R) is a component of the Dow Jones Transportation Average and the Standard & Poor’s 500 Index. The Company’s financial performance is reported in the following three, inter-related business segments:

  • Fleet Management Solutions – The FMS business segment combines several capabilities into a comprehensive package that provides one-stop outsourcing of the acquisition, financing, maintenance, management, and disposal of vehicles. Ryder’s commercial rental service offers customers a method to expand their fleets in order to address short-term capacity needs.
  • Supply Chain Solutions – The SCS business segment offers a broad range of innovative logistics management services that are designed to optimize a customer’s supply chain and address key customer business requirements. These solutions involve strategically designed processes that direct the movement of materials and related information from the acquisition of raw materials to the delivery of finished products to the end user.
  • Dedicated Contract Carriage – The DCC business segment provides customers with vehicles, drivers, management, and administrative support, with the assets committed to a specific customer for a contractual term. DCC supports customers with both basic and sophisticated logistics and transportation needs, including routing and scheduling, specialized driver services, and logistics engineering support.

Pre-Tax Earnings: Ryder’s primary measurement of business segment financial performance, pre-tax earnings from continuing operations (pre-tax earnings), allocates Central Support Services to each business segment and excludes restructuring and other items.

Capital Expenditures: In Ryder’s business, capital expenditures are generally used to purchase revenue earning equipment (trucks, tractors, and trailers) primarily to support the full service lease product line and secondarily to support the commercial rental product line within Ryder’s FMS business segment. The level of capital required to support the full service lease product line varies directly with customer contract signings for replacement vehicles and growth. These contracts are long-term agreements that result in ongoing revenues and cash flows to Ryder, typically over a three- to ten-year term. The commercial rental product line utilizes capital for the purchase of vehicles to replenish and expand the Company’s fleet available for shorter-term use by contractual or occasional customers.
