  • Rail Products Group reported total railcar backlog of $3.3 billion
  • Rail Products Group reported quarterly railcar orders and deliveries of 3,000 and 4,505, respectively
  • Repurchased approximately 3.5 million shares at a cost of $89.0 million, including the completion of the Company's previously announced $350 million accelerated share repurchase program
  • Put a new $350 million share repurchase authorization in place for 2019-2020
  • Increased quarterly dividend to $0.17 per common share, an increase of 31%
  • Successfully executed a $528.3 million secured railcar financing transaction subsequent to quarter-end

“Trinity is off to a good start in 2019 with significant improvement in year over year earnings per share and quarterly revenue growth across our business segments,” said Timothy R. Wallace, Trinity’s Chief Executive Officer and President. “We are making great progress in enhancing shareholder value. I am pleased with the level of capital the Company has recently returned to shareholders. This includes a 31% increase in the company’s quarterly dividend announced in March 2019 and the completion of the previously announced $350 million accelerated share repurchase program. In addition, we announced another share repurchase authorization of $350 million that expires in December 2020. Recently during the second week of April, we made further progress in optimizing the balance sheet with a very successful $528 million leased railcar securitization at a coupon rate of 3.82%.”

Mr. Wallace continued, “Trinity’s businesses performed well during the quarter. Currently, the general sense of economic uncertainty within our commercial markets shows signs of improvement. Our Leasing business maintained a strong level of utilization, increased its operating margin during the quarter, and grew its wholly and partially-owned lease fleet by 9% year over year. During the first quarter, our Rail Products team changed over a number of production lines while delivering a higher operating margin relative to the fourth quarter. The highway products business had a good first quarter despite several severe weather-related events that affected the timing of a number of highway construction projects. Overall, we continue to expect earnings growth of approximately 60-90% year over year for 2019. I continue to be very excited about focusing our resources on growing and improving TrinityRail’s integrated platform of products and services, as well as the strength and enthusiasm I see within our organization.”

Consolidated Results

Trinity Industries, Inc. reported net income from continuing operations attributable to Trinity stockholders of $31.7 million, or $0.24 per common diluted share, for the first quarter ended March 31, 2019. Net income from continuing operations attributable to Trinity stockholders for the same quarter of 2018 was $13.8 million, or $0.09 per common diluted share. Revenues for the first quarter of 2019 increased to $604.8 million compared with revenues of $533.2 million for the same quarter of 2018. Our effective tax rate was lower during the first quarter of 2019 in comparison to the prior year period primarily due to lower foreign taxes.

Quarterly Business Group Results

Railcar Leasing and Management Services Group

The Leasing Group's financial performance continues to benefit from lease fleet growth, and market lease rates for railcars renewing in our portfolio have improved in recent months. During the quarter, the Company completed secondary market portfolio sales to our railcar investment partners, maintaining an important financial partnership and supporting overall management of portfolio diversification. In the first quarter of 2019, the Leasing Group increased its revenues and operating profit to $200.4 million and $85.8 million, respectively, when compared with $174.6 million and $71.1 million, respectively, in the same quarter of 2018. The increase in the Leasing Group's revenues was primarily due to growth in our lease fleet and a higher volume of railcars sold from the lease fleet, partially offset by lower average lease rates reflective of the market environment the last few years. The increase in operating profit for the first quarter was primarily due to growth in the lease fleet, higher profits from railcar sales and lower rent expense resulting from the exercise of a purchase option for 6,779 railcars previously under lease, partially offset by increased depreciation expense associated with lease fleet growth. 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 $42.7 million in the first quarter of 2019 compared with $15.5 million in the first quarter of 2018. The wholly-owned and partially-owned lease fleet grew to 101,005 units as of March 31, 2019, an increase of approximately 9% in comparison to March 31, 2018. Supplemental information for the Leasing Group is provided in the accompanying tables.

Rail Products Group

During the first quarter of 2019, the Rail Products Group completed numerous line change-overs required to achieve our planned rail manufacturing volume increase for 2019. The Rail Products Group reported revenues of $603.6 million compared with revenues of $588.1 million in the first quarter of 2018. The improvement in revenues primarily resulted from growth in our maintenance services business and favorable railcar product mix changes and pricing compared to the prior year period, partially offset by lower railcar deliveries in the quarter. While quarterly segment operating profit and profit margin improved sequentially as expected, the Rail Products Group reported a decrease in operating profit and operating profit margin year over year to $50.6 million and 8.4%, respectively, in the first quarter of 2019 compared with $51.5 million and 8.8%, respectively, in the first quarter of 2018. The decline in operating profit was primarily due to production inefficiencies related to changes in the mix of railcars manufactured during the period and activities undertaken in anticipation of higher production levels expected in future periods. The Rail Products Group received orders for 3,000 railcars and delivered 4,505 railcars during the first quarter of 2019, compared with orders for 4,705 railcars and deliveries of 5,725 railcars, respectively, in the same quarter last year. The railcar backlog in the Rail Group decreased during the quarter to $3.3 billion as of March 31, 2019, representing 26,320 railcars, compared with a railcar backlog of $3.6 billion as of December 31, 2018, representing 30,875 railcars.

Effective March 31, 2019, the Company has elected to remove from the Rail Products Group's backlog contractually committed orders for approximately 3,050 leased railcars valued at $240 million because of the financial condition of one of the Leasing Group's customers. Negotiation of the consideration to be received in exchange for terminating the underlying leases is ongoing. All of the contracts removed from the Rail Products Group’s backlog for delivery to the lease fleet were planned for delivery beyond 2019; therefore, this change is not expected to have a financial impact in the current year.

All Other Group

In the first quarter of 2019, the All Other Group, which primarily includes the results of our highway products and logistics businesses, reported revenues of $86.4 million compared with revenues of $77.3 million in the first quarter of 2018. Operating profit for the All Other Group was $6.6 million for the first quarter of 2019, compared with operating profit of $5.8 million in the first quarter of 2018. The increase in revenues and operating profit was primarily due to increased demand and higher shipping volumes in our highway products business, as well as an increase in internal and external shipments by our logistics business.

Share Repurchases

During the first quarter of 2019, the Company repurchased approximately 3.5 million shares at a cost of $89.0 million. This total includes approximately 2.6 million shares that were delivered to the Company upon final settlement of the previously announced accelerated share repurchase program, which was funded in November 2018, as well as the repurchase of approximately 0.9 million shares at a cost of $19.0 million under a new $350.0 million share repurchase authorization approved by the Company's Board of Directors on March 7, 2019.

Quarterly Dividend Increase

In addition to the new share repurchase authorization approved by our Board of Directors, the Board also approved a 31% increase to our quarterly dividend from $0.13 per share to $0.17 per share, which will be payable on April 30, 2019 to stockholders of record as of April 15, 2019.

Secured Railcar Financing Transaction

Subsequent to quarter-end, on April 12, 2019, Trinity Industries Leasing Company (“TILC”) and Trinity Rail Leasing 2019 LLC (“TRL-2019”), two wholly-owned subsidiaries of the Company, closed a single-tranche railcar asset-backed securitization in the aggregate amount of $528.3 million, with a coupon of 3.82% and a weighted average life of approximately 6.1 years. The transaction is secured by a portfolio of approximately 8,003 railcars and their associated operating leases. The obligations of the equipment notes are non-recourse to Trinity and TILC. Net proceeds received from the transaction will be used to repay outstanding borrowings under the Leasing Group's secured warehouse credit facility and the Company's revolving credit facility, and for general corporate purposes.

“We are very pleased with the successful completion of the recent asset-backed securitization,” said Melendy E. Lovett, Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of Trinity Industries. “TRL 2019 is the 17th long-term financing transaction Trinity has completed since 2000, cementing Trinity as the preeminent issuer of railcar asset-back securitizations. The notes issued in the securitization are rated single ‘A’ by both Standard & Poors and Kroll Bond Rating Agency and are secured by a diversified portfolio of railcars with a net book value of $660 million. We continue to believe the debt markets appreciate and value Trinity’s ability to operate and service high-performing portfolios of railcar assets through our unique integrated rail platform.”

2019 Guidance

For the full year 2019, the Company continues to anticipate earnings of between $1.15 and $1.35 per common diluted share, an increase of 64% to 93% as compared to 2018. 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.

(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)

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 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.
