MIAMI--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Ryder System, Inc. (NYSE: R), a leader in commercial fleet management, dedicated transportation, and supply chain solutions, today reported second quarter earnings and revenue. Results for the three months ended June 30 were as follows:

2017   2016   Change 2017   2016   Change 2017   2016   Change

In the second quarter, the Company reported record total revenue and record operating revenue (a non-GAAP measure excluding all fuel and subcontracted transportation). Total revenue increased due to higher subcontracted transportation and operating revenue, reflecting new business and higher volumes. Total revenue also grew due to higher fuel costs passed through to customers, partially offset by negative impacts from foreign exchange. Operating revenue increased due to higher contractual ChoiceLease (lease) revenue and higher revenue in the supply chain solutions and dedicated transportation business segments, partially offset by lower transactional rental revenue and negative impacts from foreign exchange. Total revenue and operating revenue for the three months ended June 30 were as follows:

Commenting on the Company’s second quarter results, Ryder Chairman and CEO Robert Sanchez said, "We delivered earnings above the high end of our forecast range for the quarter, driven by our Fleet Management Solutions business segment. In FMS, we realized better than expected ChoiceLease and SelectCare results, as well as stronger rental performance. We're encouraged that rental utilization improved during the quarter, reflecting the benefit of our right-sizing actions and modestly better than expected demand. Although used vehicle sales pricing came in somewhat better than anticipated, overall results were lower than expected, driven by valuation adjustments made to better position inventory for sale.

"With the continuing benefit of secular trends that favor outsourcing, year-to-date we have grown our ChoiceLease fleet by 1,400 vehicles. We continue to tap into non-outsourced markets, with over 40% of our lease fleet growth now coming from customers that are new to outsourcing. We also grew the number of vehicles under SelectCare contracts by 2,700. Although down from a year ago, our Dedicated Transportation Solutions business performed in line with our expectations. Supply Chain Solutions results came in below expectations, due to lower than anticipated production volumes with certain automotive customers. During the quarter, we continued our anti-dilutive share repurchase program, including completing the repurchase of 500,000 shares that were not purchased under a prior plan. Additionally, we are raising our long-term target for debt to equity from a range of 225% to 275% to our historical target range of 250% to 300% which, based on our recent review, still maintains our solid investment grade credit ratings."

Second Quarter Business Segment Operating Results

Fleet Management Solutions

In the Fleet Management Solutions (FMS) business segment, total revenue was $1.16 billion, up 1% from the year-earlier period. FMS operating revenue (a non-GAAP measure excluding fuel) was $1.0 billion, consistent with the year-earlier period. Lease revenue increased by over 2% reflecting a larger average fleet size. The lease fleet (excluding U.K. trailers) increased by 1,100 vehicles year-to-date. As previously noted, in recent quarters the Company has had an elevated number of vehicles being prepared for sale. Adjusting for a reduction in these vehicles during the quarter, the lease fleet grew by approximately 1,400 units over the same period. Commercial rental revenue decreased by 7% from the year-earlier period due to lower demand.

FMS earnings before tax were $68.1 million, down 39% compared with $111.2 million in the same period of 2016. Decreased earnings reflect lower used vehicle sales results, $8 million of accelerated depreciation, and higher maintenance costs on certain older model year vehicles. Used vehicle results declined primarily due to a lower market pricing environment and increased inventory valuation adjustments to better position the fleet for sale. Commercial rental performance declined primarily due to lower demand, partially offset by improved utilization, reflecting the Company's fleet right-sizing actions. Rental power fleet utilization was 75.6% for the second quarter, up from 74.7% in the year-earlier period. FMS earnings before tax as a percentage of FMS total revenue and FMS operating revenue (a non-GAAP measure) were 5.9% and 6.8%, respectively, down 380 and 440 basis points, primarily reflecting lower used vehicle results.

Dedicated Transportation Solutions

In the Dedicated Transportation Solutions (DTS) business segment, total revenue was up 6% to $273 million and operating revenue (a non-GAAP measure excluding fuel and subcontracted transportation) was up 3% to $200 million compared with the year-earlier period. DTS total revenue and operating revenue growth reflect new business.

DTS earnings before tax of $14.8 million decreased 10% compared with $16.5 million in 2016, primarily due to higher maintenance costs on certain older model year vehicles and higher insurance premiums. DTS earnings before tax as a percentage of DTS total revenue and operating revenue (a non-GAAP measure) were 5.4% and 7.4%, respectively, down 100 and 110 basis points from the year-earlier period.

Supply Chain Solutions

In the Supply Chain Solutions (SCS) business segment, total revenue was up 17% to $471 million and operating revenue (a non-GAAP measure excluding fuel and subcontracted transportation) was up 8% to $359 million compared with the year-earlier period. SCS total revenue and operating revenue growth reflect new business, increased volumes, and higher pricing.

SCS earnings before tax of $25.9 million decreased 9% from $28.4 million in 2016, primarily related to higher costs incurred during the start-up phase of certain new accounts. SCS earnings before tax as a percentage of SCS total revenue and operating revenue (a non-GAAP measure) were 5.5% and 7.2%, respectively, down 160 and 140 basis points from the prior year.

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 2017, unallocated CSS costs were $12 million, up from $11 million in the year-earlier period.

Items Excluded from Segment and Comparable Earnings

Non-operating components of pension costs are excluded from both segment earnings before tax and comparable earnings (a non-GAAP measure) in order to more accurately reflect the operating performance of the business. Non-operating pension costs totaled $6.6 million ($3.8 million after tax) or $0.07 per diluted share in the second quarter of 2017, down from $7.8 million ($4.4 million after tax) or $0.09 per diluted share in the year-earlier period. Second quarter 2017 results also reflect a gain on sale of properties of $2.6 million related to prior year restructuring activity.

Income Taxes

The Company’s effective income tax rate for the second quarter of 2017 decreased 20 basis points to 36.4%. The comparable income tax rate (a non-GAAP measure) from continuing operations increased 50 basis points to 37.4%, primarily due to the mix of earnings in higher tax rate jurisdictions.

Capital Expenditures

Year-to-date capital expenditures decreased to $933 million, compared with $1.01 billion in 2016. The decrease in capital expenditures reflects lower planned investments in the lease fleet, partially offset by higher planned investments to refresh the rental fleet. Proceeds, primarily from used vehicle sales, of $206 million decreased 18% compared with $252 million in 2016, due to lower vehicle pricing and volumes. Net capital expenditures (including proceeds from the sale of assets) were $727 million in 2017, down from $763 million in 2016. The Company's full-year 2017 forecast for gross capital expenditures has been revised from $1.97 billion to $1.87 billion primarily related to greater use of used vehicles to fulfill new lease sales.

Cash Flow and Leverage

Year-to-date operating cash flow was $732 million, down 4% from $763 million in 2016. Total cash generated (a non-GAAP measure that includes proceeds from used vehicle sales) was $971 million, compared with $1.06 billion in 2016. Free cash flow (a non-GAAP measure) was $115 million, compared with negative $61 million in 2016, reflecting lower net capital spending. The Company’s full-year 2017 forecast for operating cash flow is $1.6 billion. The Company's full-year free cash flow forecast remains unchanged at $250 million.

Debt decreased by $6 million compared with year-end 2016. Debt to equity was 256% compared with 263% at year-end 2016. The Company remains focused on maintaining a solid investment grade credit rating and periodically reviews the Company's long-term target range for debt to equity, which is currently 225% to 275%. Based on its most recent review, the Company has revised its target range to 250% to 300%, which is consistent with the Company's historical target range in effect prior to 2013. The year-end debt to equity forecast remains unchanged at 240%.

2017 Earnings Forecast

Commenting on the Company’s outlook, Mr. Sanchez said, "Our overall earnings outlook for the second half remains on track with our prior expectations. We anticipate a somewhat improved outlook for Fleet Management Solutions. We remain on track for ChoiceLease fleet growth of 3,500 vehicles for the full year. In commercial rental, we are expecting stronger utilization levels for the second half of the year. We anticipate Ryder's used vehicle inventories to be near the midpoint of our target range by year end, which will better position the Company for 2018. Our outlook for used vehicle sales pricing remains unchanged. Improved performance in FMS is anticipated to be offset by modestly lower performance in Supply Chain Solutions and Dedicated Transportation Solutions. In the second half, we expect SCS results to be impacted primarily by lower automotive production volumes and increased investments in technology. In DTS, we expect results to be impacted by higher insurance premiums. Based on these factors, our EPS expectation for the balance of the year remains unchanged."

In view of better than expected performance in the second quarter, Ryder is increasing its full-year 2017 GAAP EPS forecast to a range of $4.03 to $4.23 from a prior forecast of $3.90 to $4.20. Additionally, the Company's full-year 2017 comparable EPS forecast has been revised to a range of $4.38 to $4.58 from a prior range of $4.25 to $4.55. The Company is also establishing a third quarter 2017 GAAP EPS forecast range of $1.15 to $1.25, and a comparable EPS forecast range of $1.25 to $1.35.

Notations

Earnings Before Tax (EBT): Ryder’s primary measurement of business segment financial performance, earnings before tax (EBT), allocates Central Support Services to each business segment and excludes restructuring and other items, as well as non-operating pension costs.

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 ChoiceLease product line varies directly with customer contract signings for growth and replacement vehicles. 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.
