Spin-off of Arcosa

On November 1, 2018, we completed the separation of Trinity Industries, Inc. into two public companies: (1) Trinity Industries, Inc., comprised of Trinity’s rail-related businesses, which are leading providers of rail transportation products and services in North America, and (2) Arcosa, a new public company focused on infrastructure-related products and services. The separation was effected through a pro rata dividend to Trinity's shareholders of all outstanding Arcosa shares and was structured to qualify as a tax-free distribution for federal income tax purposes. Following the distribution, Arcosa became an independent, publicly-traded company on the New York Stock Exchange. Trinity did not retain an ownership interest in Arcosa following the completion of the spin-off transaction. Arcosa's results of operations are reflected within discontinued operations for all periods presented herein.

Consolidated Results

Trinity Industries, Inc. reported net income from continuing operations attributable to Trinity stockholders of $27.6 million, or $0.19 per common diluted share, for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2018. Net income from continuing operations attributable to Trinity stockholders for the same quarter of 2017 was $530.4 million, or $3.37 per common diluted share, which included a one-time $3.03 per share benefit related to the Tax Act. Revenues for the fourth quarter of 2018 increased to $735.0 million compared with revenues of $615.4 million for the same quarter of 2017. During the fourth quarter of 2018, the Company incurred a non-cash charge in the Leasing Group of approximately $12.6 million, or $0.07 per share, associated with the write-off of assets held under capital leases that we have elected not to purchase, and approximately $1.8 million, or $0.01 per common diluted share, of corporate costs related to the Arcosa spin-off, which were included in continuing operations. Our effective tax rate was higher during the fourth quarter of 2018 as adjustments were made to our tax provision related to the spin-off and the loss of certain state tax benefits, as well as changes to the treatment of foreign taxes as a result of the Tax Act.

For the year ended December 31, 2018, the Company reported net income from continuing operations attributable to Trinity stockholders of $105.2 million, or $0.70 per common diluted share. In 2017, the Company reported net income from continuing operations attributable to Trinity stockholders of $599.1 million, or $3.85 per common diluted share, which included a one-time $3.06 per share benefit related to the Tax Act. Revenues for the year ended December 31, 2018 were $2.5 billion compared to revenues of $2.4 billion in 2017. For the year ended December 31, 2018, the Company incurred a non-cash charge of approximately $12.6 million, or $0.07 per share, associated with the write-off of assets held under capital leases that we have elected not to purchase, and approximately $5.1 million, or $0.03 per share, of corporate costs related to the Arcosa spin-off, which were included in continuing operations.

“The year 2018 was an exciting and transformative year for Trinity Industries on a number of fronts, and our enthusiasm for long-term growth opportunities continues into 2019,” said Timothy R. Wallace, Trinity’s Chairman, CEO, and President. “The successful separation of Trinity into two public companies positions us to focus our resources on serving the railcar industry through the TrinityRail integrated platform of products and services.”

Mr. Wallace continued, "Railcar fundamentals improved throughout 2018, increasing demand for leased railcars and new railcar equipment. During 2018, our commercial services team was highly successful renewing leases on railcars within our fleet. Our lease fleet utilization at the end of 2018 was 98.5% or 170 basis points above the level at the end of 2017. The commercial services team received orders for 28,795 railcars in 2018, compared to 12,900 railcar orders received in 2017, a 123% increase.”

“At the beginning of 2019, our railcar order backlog totaled approximately $3.6 billion compared to approximately $2.2 billion at the start of 2018, a 69% increase. Currently our customers are providing us inquiries requesting quotes for new railcars, yet they don’t appear to have a strong sense of urgency to issue orders. We have experienced this situation in the past when there are levels of uncertainty within the economy. The recurring revenue from our leased railcar portfolio and strong order backlog provide a solid foundation for our operations and support our expectations for improvements in our financial performance this year. Our earnings guidance for 2019 reflects a range of improvement of 64 and 93% year over year. We are enthusiastic about the long-term growth opportunities to enhance shareholder value.”

Quarterly Business Group Results

In the fourth quarter of 2018, the Leasing Group reported revenues and operating profit of $227.3 million and $96.0 million, respectively, compared with $197.1 million and $128.1 million, respectively, in the same quarter of 2017. The increase in revenues was primarily due to higher sales of railcars owned one year or less and higher lease fleet management advisory fees associated with those sales. The decrease in operating profit for the fourth quarter was primarily the result of a change in the mix of railcars sold from the lease fleet, higher depreciation expense associated with the growth of the lease fleet and a $12.6 million pre-tax, non-cash charge related to our election to forego the early purchase options contained in certain capital lease agreements. These decreases were partially offset by higher lease fleet management advisory fees earned during the quarter. Total proceeds from the sale of leased railcars, including sales of railcars owned for more than one year that are not reported as revenues, were $140.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2018 compared with $206.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2017. Our wholly-owned and partially-owned lease fleet grew to 99,215 units as of December 31, 2018, an increase of 12% from December 31, 2017. Supplemental information for the Leasing Group is provided in the accompanying tables.

In the fourth quarter of 2018, the Rail Products Group reported revenues of $694.7 million compared with revenues of $638.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2017. Operating profit and profit margin for the Rail Products Group of $44.1 million and 6.3% in the fourth quarter of 2018 declined compared with $73.4 million and 11.5% in the fourth quarter of 2017. Operating profit declined primarily due to pricing pressures for certain railcar types, lower volume and product mix changes, partially offset by higher volumes in our maintenance services business. The Rail Products Group delivered approximately 5,285 railcars and received orders for 8,045 railcars during the fourth quarter of 2018, compared with deliveries of 6,150 railcars and orders for 3,180 railcars, respectively, in the same quarter last year. The railcar backlog in the Rail Group increased during the quarter to $3.6 billion as of December 31, 2018, representing 30,875 railcars, compared with a railcar backlog of $3.2 billion as of September 30, 2018, representing 28,315 railcars.

In the fourth quarter of 2018, the All Other Group, which primarily includes the results of our highway products and transportation and logistics businesses, reported revenues of $89.7 million compared with revenues of $80.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2017. The increase in revenues was primarily due to higher volumes in our highway products business. For the fourth quarter of 2018, operating profit for the All Other Group was $7.9 million, compared with an operating loss of $1.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2017. The increase in operating profit was primarily due to lower litigation-related expenses and insurance recoveries related to damages previously sustained at two highway products manufacturing facilities.

Share Repurchases

On November 16, 2018, we entered into an accelerated share repurchase program (the “ASR Program”) pursuant to which the Company will repurchase shares with a total notional value of $350 million, representing the entire remaining amount that was available under the Company’s existing share repurchase program. During the fourth quarter of 2018, the Company repurchased approximately 12.9 million shares at a cost of $280 million, representing approximately 80% of the notional value of the ASR Program and bringing full year share repurchases to a total of approximately 17.2 million shares at a cost of $430 million, excluding fees. This amount excludes $70.0 million that was funded upon execution of the ASR Program but was outstanding at December 31, 2018 and is expected to be settled by the end of the first quarter of 2019. The final number of shares to be repurchased will be based on Trinity’s volume-weighted average stock price, less a discount, during the term of the ASR Program.

2019 Guidance

For the full year 2019, the Company currently anticipates earnings of between $1.15 and $1.35 per common diluted share. Additionally, the Leasing Group expects a net lease fleet investment of between $1.2 billion and $1.4 billion in 2019. At this time, the Rail Products Group expects full year 2019 deliveries of between approximately 23,500 and 25,500 railcars. Additional guidance information is included in the accompanying tables.

Results for the three months ended December 31, 2017 have been revised to reflect the retrospective adoption of Accounting Standards Update No. 2017-07, Compensation - Retirement Benefits: Improving the Presentation of Net Periodic Pension Cost and Net Periodic Postretirement Cost (ASU 2017-07). The adoption of ASU 2017-07 on January 1, 2018 resulted in a net decrease to previously reported Operating Profit of $0.8 million and a corresponding decrease to Other, net of $0.8 million for the three months ended December 31, 2017, with no impact to net income or earnings per share.

Trinity is required to utilize the two-class method of accounting when calculating earnings per share as a result of unvested restricted shares that have non-forfeitable rights to dividends and are, therefore, considered to be a participating security. The unvested restricted shares are excluded from the weighted average number of shares outstanding for the purposes of determining earnings per share. The two-class method results in a lower earnings per share than is calculated from the face of the income statement. See Earnings Per Share Calculation table below.

The Tax Act, enacted in December 2017, reduced the U.S. federal corporate income tax rate from 35.0% to 21.0%. In December 2017, we recorded a non-cash tax benefit of $476.2 million, primarily related to the remeasurement of our deferred tax balances. During the three months ended December 31, 2018, we recognized an additional provisional net benefit of $4.6 million related to the finalization of our assessment, which is included as a component of income tax expense.

* Not meaningful

(1) The Company recognizes sales of railcars from the lease fleet which have been owned by the lease fleet for one year or less as revenue. Sales of railcars from the lease fleet which have been owned by the lease fleet for more than one year are recognized as a net gain or loss from the disposal of a long-term asset.

(2)Property disposition losses includes a non-cash charge of $12.6 million associated with our election to forego the early purchase options contained in certain lease agreements.

(3)Depreciation, maintenance and compliance, and rent expense are components of operating profit. Amortization of deferred profit on railcars sold from the Rail Group to the Leasing Group is included in the operating profit of the Leasing Group resulting in the recognition of depreciation expense based on the Company's original manufacturing cost of the railcars. Interest expense is not a component of operating profit and includes the effect of hedges.

Reconciliation of EBITDA
(in millions)
(unaudited)
 

“EBITDA” is defined as net income from continuing operations plus interest expense, income taxes, and depreciation and amortization including goodwill impairment charges. EBITDA is not a calculation based on generally accepted accounting principles. The amounts included in the EBITDA calculation are, however, derived from amounts included in the historical consolidated statements of operations data. In addition, EBITDA should not be considered as an alternative to net income or operating income as an indicator of our operating performance, or as an alternative to operating cash flows as a measure of liquidity. We believe EBITDA assists investors in comparing a company’s performance on a consistent basis without regard to depreciation and amortization, which can vary significantly depending upon many factors. However, the EBITDA measure presented in this press release may not always be comparable to similarly titled measures by other companies due to differences in the components of the calculation.
