By Business Wire News

DALLAS

Trinity Industries, Inc. (NYSE:TRN) today announced earnings results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2015, including the following significant highlights:

  • Third quarter earnings per common diluted share of $1.31 compared to $0.91 for the third quarter of 2014, a 44% increase year-over-year
  • Increased earnings guidance for the Company for full year 2015 to between $4.65 and $4.90 per common diluted share compared to previous guidance of between $4.45 and $4.75 per share
  • A record operating margin for the Rail Group during the third quarter of 20.8% compared to 18.7% last year
  • Record operating profit of $44.8 million for the Energy Equipment Group during the third quarter

Consolidated Results

Trinity Industries, Inc. reported net income attributable to Trinity stockholders of $204.3 million, or $1.31 per common diluted share. Net income for the same quarter of 2014 was $149.4 million, or $0.91 per common diluted share. Revenues for the third quarter of 2015 totaled $1.54 billion compared to revenues of $1.56 billion for the same quarter of 2014.

“During the third quarter, Trinity maintained its positive momentum generating high quality results that led to 37% year-over-year growth in our net income,” said Timothy R. Wallace, Trinity’s Chairman, CEO, and President. “Our performance continues to reflect the strength of our diversified industrial business model and our ability to shift our resources to meet our customers’ needs.”

Mr. Wallace added, “An increased level of uncertainty in the macro-economic environment tempered the pace of new order volumes in our businesses during the third quarter. I am confident in our Company’s ability to respond to shifts in market demand.”

Business Group Results

In the third quarter of 2015, the Rail Group reported revenues and operating profit of approximately $1.07 billion and $223.3 million, respectively, resulting in year-over-year increases compared to the third quarter of 2014 of 8% and 20%, respectively. The increases in revenues and profit were due primarily to higher deliveries, improved pricing, and increased operating efficiencies partially offset by product mix changes. The Rail Group shipped 8,220 railcars and received orders for 3,655 railcars during the third quarter. The Rail Group had a backlog of $6.25 billion as of September 30, 2015, representing 55,265 railcars, compared to a backlog of $6.90 billion as of June 30, 2015, representing 59,830 railcars. At the end of the third quarter, the backlog of railcar orders extends into 2020.

During the third quarter of 2015, the Railcar Leasing and Management Services Group reported leasing and management revenues of $176.6 million compared to $158.3 million in the third quarter of 2014 due to higher average rental rates and net fleet additions. In addition, the Group recognized revenue of $72.6 million from sales of railcars from the lease fleet owned for less than a year during the third quarter compared to $47.4 million in the third quarter of 2014. Operating profit for this Group was $158.2 million in the third quarter of 2015 compared to operating profit of $87.0 million in the third quarter of 2014 due to higher leasing and management operating profit and higher operating profit from sales of railcars from the lease fleet. Supplemental information for the Railcar Leasing and Management Services Group is provided in the following tables.

During the third quarter, the Company sold $267.3 million of leased railcars to Element Financial Corporation (“Element”) under a strategic alliance launched in 2013. Since the fourth quarter of 2013 when the alliance was announced, the Company has completed $1.60 billion of leased railcar sales to Element. On October 14th, the Company and Element announced a $1 billion extension of the alliance through December 2019. The Company’s third quarter results included $0.39 per common diluted share related to sales of leased railcars to Element and other third parties compared to $0.13 per share in the same quarter last year.

The Inland Barge Group reported revenues of $164.8 million for the third quarter of 2015 compared to revenues of $168.4 million in the third quarter of 2014. Operating profit for this Group was $28.1 million in the third quarter of 2015 compared to $31.0 million in the third quarter of 2014. The slight decrease in revenues compared to the same quarter last year was primarily due to the mix of tank barges partially offset by higher delivery volumes of hopper barges. The Inland Barge Group received orders of $83.9 million during the quarter, and as of September 30, 2015 had a backlog of $373.1 million compared to a backlog of $454.0 million as of June 30, 2015.

The Energy Equipment Group reported revenues of $289.5 million in the third quarter of 2015 compared to revenues of $269.7 million in the same quarter of 2014. Operating profit for the third quarter of 2015 increased to a record $44.8 million compared to $30.0 million in the same quarter last year. The increases in revenues and operating profit compared to the same quarter last year were due primarily to an acquisition completed in the third quarter of 2014. The backlog for structural wind towers as of September 30, 2015 was $424.4 million compared to a backlog of $502.6 million as of June 30, 2015. At the end of the third quarter, the backlog of structural wind tower orders extends through 2016.

Revenues in the Construction Products Group were $154.8 million in the third quarter of 2015 compared to revenues of $170.4 million in the third quarter of 2014. The Group recorded an operating profit of $19.9 million in the third quarter of 2015 compared to an operating profit of $21.6 million in the third quarter of 2014. Revenues and operating profit decreased compared to the same quarter last year primarily as a result of lower delivery volumes in our Highway Products business partially offset by higher delivery volumes in our Aggregates business.

Cash and Liquidity

At September 30, 2015, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $677.8 million. When combined with capacity under committed credit facilities, the Company had approximately $1.89 billion of available liquidity at the end of the third quarter.

Share Repurchase

The Company repurchased 1,556,516 shares of common stock at a cost of $40.0 million under its share repurchase authorization during the quarter, leaving $103.6 million remaining under its current authorization through December 31, 2015.

Earnings Outlook

The Company’s earnings guidance for the fourth quarter is between $0.87 and $1.12 per common diluted share. This results in full year 2015 earnings guidance of between $4.65 and $4.90 per common diluted share compared to previous earnings guidance of $4.45 to $4.75 per share. The Company’s earnings guidance compares to fourth quarter and full year 2014 earnings per common diluted share of $0.86 and $4.19, respectively. The 2015 earnings guidance assumes an annual weighted average diluted share count of 153 million shares, which includes 2.1 million shares from the convertible notes. The dilutive impact of the convertible notes reduces full year 2015 earnings per share by approximately $0.06 per share.

Actual results in 2015 may differ from present expectations and could be impacted by a number of factors including, among others, fluctuations in prices of commodities that our customers produce and transport; expenses related to current and potential litigation involving our Highway Products business; the operating leverage and efficiencies that can be achieved by the Company’s manufacturing businesses; the level of sales and profitability of railcars; the level of profitability resulting from sales of leased railcars; the dilutive impact of the convertible notes related to changes in the Company’s stock price; and the impact of weather conditions on our operations and delivery schedules.

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.
