On October 29, 2019, the Company disclosed that "our residual value estimates likely exceeded the expected future values that would be realized upon the sale of power vehicles in our fleet."
As a result, Ryder recorded $177 million in additional depreciation expense in connection with the significantly lower residual value estimates.

Then, on February 13, 2020, the Company reported that it had incurred a total of $357 million in additional depreciation expense for 2019 due to lower residual values of its fleet, as well as a loss of $58 million on the sale of used vehicles. For fiscal 2020, Ryder expected to incur an additional $275 million in depreciation expense and an additional $20 million estimated loss on used vehicle sales.
On this news, the Company’s share price fell $10.07 per share, or 20%, over two consecutive trading sessions to close at $40.12 per share on February 14, 2020, thereby injuring investors.
