ST. CHARLES, Mo., Feb. 18, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- American Railcar Industries, Inc. (ARI or the Company) (Nasdaq:ARII) today reported its fourth quarter and full year 2014 financial results.

"We are proud to announce the third consecutive year of record earnings, largely driven by high production volumes and improved efficiencies at our facilities. We believe our production processes are efficiently producing high quality railcars, which has played a significant role in the 13% improvement in consolidated operating earnings in 2014, compared to 2013. Our railcar leasing segment was also a strong contributor to our increased consolidated operating margins. We remain committed to the growth of our lease fleet to further diversify our business as demonstrated by the 74% growth in our lease fleet from December 31, 2013 to December 31, 2014. Our backlog of 11,732 railcars at December 31, 2014 is at its highest point since December 2007 and includes 2,844 railcars being manufactured for lease," said Jeff Hollister, President and CEO of ARI.

Fourth Quarter Revenue Summary

Total consolidated revenues were $150.5 million for the fourth quarter of 2014, a decrease of 24% when compared to $197.2 million for the same period in 2013. This decrease was primarily driven by decreased revenues in the manufacturing and railcar services segments, partially offset by higher railcar leasing revenues.

Manufacturing revenues were $111.7 million for the fourth quarter of 2014, a decrease of 34% compared to the same period in 2013 due to a higher mix of railcars shipped for the Company's lease fleet relative to direct sale shipments. During the fourth quarter of 2014, ARI shipped 893 direct sale railcars and 1,224 railcars built for the Company's lease fleet, compared to 1,380 direct sale railcars and 670 railcars built for the lease fleet during the same period in 2013. Railcars built for the lease fleet represented 58% of ARI's railcar shipments during the fourth quarter of 2014 compared to 33% for the same period in 2013. While production of tank and hopper railcars continue at strong levels, a higher percentage of these railcars were built for the Company's lease fleet during the fourth quarter of 2014. Because revenues and earnings related to leased railcars are recognized over the life of the lease, ARI's quarterly results may vary depending on the mix of lease versus direct sale railcars that the Company ships during a given period.

Manufacturing revenues for the fourth quarter of 2014 exclude $150.3 million of estimated revenues related to railcars built for the Company's lease fleet, compared to $82.6 million for the same period in 2013. Estimated revenues related to railcars built for the Company's lease fleet increased due to a higher quantity of railcars shipped for lease. Such revenues are based on an estimated fair market value of the leased railcars as if they had been sold to a third party, and are not recognized in consolidated revenues as railcar sales, but rather as lease revenues in accordance with the terms of the contract over the life of the lease.

Railcar leasing revenues were $22.3 million for the fourth quarter of 2014, an increase of 134% over the $9.5 million for the comparable period in 2013. The primary reasons for the increase in revenue were an increase in the number of railcars on lease and higher average lease rates. ARI had 7,730 railcars in its lease fleet at the end of 2014, compared to approximately 4,450 railcars at the end of 2013.

Railcar services revenues for the fourth quarter of 2014 were $16.6 million. Revenue decreased from $17.8 million for the same period in 2013 due to certain repair projects being performed at the Company's hopper railcar manufacturing facility during the fourth quarter of 2013 that did not continue into 2014. Production of hopper railcars has ramped up due to increased demand, thus repair projects are no longer being performed at this facility.

Fourth Quarter Earnings Summary

Consolidated earnings from operations were $42.4 million for the fourth quarter of 2014, a decrease of 4% over the $44.2 million for the same period in 2013. The decrease was primarily due to decreased earnings in the manufacturing segment due to a higher mix of railcars shipped for the Company's lease fleet relative to direct sale shipments and decreased earnings in the railcar services segment, partially offset by increased earnings in the railcar leasing segment.

Consolidated operating margins increased to 28.2% for the fourth quarter of 2014, compared to 22.4% for the comparable period in 2013. Consolidated operating margins continue to benefit from the growth of the Company's lease fleet as well as the Company's ability to sustain high production volumes at its tank railcar facility and efficiently ramp up production at its hopper railcar facility, leading to operational efficiencies and leveraged overhead costs.

Manufacturing earnings from operations were $28.0 million for the fourth quarter of 2014, compared to $36.6 million for the same period in 2013. This decrease was due primarily to a higher mix of railcars shipped for our lease fleet relative to direct sale shipments, as discussed above. Estimated profit on railcars built for the Company's lease fleet was $42.6 million and $25.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2014 and 2013, respectively, and is excluded from manufacturing earnings from operations. Profit on railcars built for the Company's lease fleet is based on an estimated fair market value of revenues as if the railcars had been sold to a third party, less the cost to manufacture.

Railcar leasing earnings from operations were $13.0 million for the fourth quarter of 2014 compared to $4.9 million for the same period in 2013. This increase was due to the growth in the number of railcars in the Company's lease fleet and higher average lease rates.

Railcar services earnings from operations were $2.3 million for the fourth quarter of 2014 compared to $4.7 million for the same period in 2013. This decrease was primarily due to the termination of the Company's postretirement medical benefit plan during the fourth quarter of 2013 that resulted in a one-time gain of $1.7 million and the decrease in revenues discussed above.

EBITDA, adjusted to exclude share-based compensation, other income on short-term investments, and the loss from the sale of the Company's interest in Amtek Railcar in the fourth quarter of 2013 (Adjusted EBITDA), was $52.6 million for the fourth quarter of 2014, compared to $52.0 million for the comparable quarter of 2013. The increase was primarily driven by earnings from joint ventures improving by $2.2 million, partially offset by lower earnings from operations, as discussed above. A reconciliation of the Company's net earnings to EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA (both non-GAAP financial measures) is set forth in the supplemental disclosure attached to this press release.

Net earnings for the fourth quarter of 2014 were $22.7 million, or $1.06 per share, compared to $24.4 million, or $1.14 per share, in the same quarter of 2013. This decrease was driven primarily by an increase in the Company's effective tax rate and lower earnings from operations, partially offset by improved results from the Company's joint ventures, which included the loss from the sale of the investment in Amtek Railcar in 2013.

Full Year 2014 Results

Consolidated revenues for 2014 were $733.0 million compared to $750.6 million in 2013. This decrease was primarily driven by a higher mix of railcars shipped for our lease fleet relative to direct sale shipments. Railcars built for the lease fleet represented 41% of ARI's railcar shipments in 2014, compared to 27% in 2013.

The Company shipped a record 8,018 railcars in 2014 compared to 6,900 railcars in 2013, generating manufacturing segment revenues of $1.0 billion for 2014, compared to $864.0 million in 2013.

Consolidated earnings from operations for 2014 were $170.1 million, a new record and up by 13% from $150.9 million in 2013. Consolidated earnings from operations for 2014 and 2013 excluded $126.0 million and $54.6 million, respectively, of profit on railcars built for the lease fleet that is eliminated in consolidation. Consolidated operating margins were 23.2% in 2014 compared to 20.1% in 2013, reflecting the growth in the number of railcars in the Company's lease fleet, higher average lease rates and higher volumes and good efficiencies as a result of sustained high levels of production for tank railcars and ramped up production for hopper railcars.

Adjusted EBITDA was $209.0 million in 2014, a new record and up by 15% from $181.1 million in 2013. The increase was primarily driven by increased earnings from operations, as discussed above and earnings from joint ventures improving by $4.2 million.

Net earnings in 2014 were $99.5 million, or $4.66 per share, a new record and up by 14% compared to $86.9 million, or $4.07 per share in 2013.

Cash Flow and Liquidity

The Company's strong earnings have contributed to cash flow from operations of $136.8 million in 2014. Additionally, the Company received net proceeds of $221.8 million in 2014 from its lease fleet financings and invested $307.7 million in 3,291 new railcars for lease.

In January 2015, the Company raised $625.5 million to increase cash, refinance its 2012 and 2014 lease fleet financings, and extend the maturity of its debt. The financing provided the Company with net cash of $211.6 million.

The Company paid dividends totaling $34.2 million during 2014. At the board meeting in February, the Company's board of directors declared a cash dividend of $0.40 per share of common stock of the Company to shareholders of record as of March 20, 2015 that will be paid on March 26, 2015.

Backlog

ARI's backlog as of December 31, 2014 was approximately 11,732 railcars, with an estimated market value of $1.2 billion. This backlog includes approximately 2,844 railcars for lease with an estimated market value of $334.1 million.

The Company believes EBITDA is useful to investors in evaluating ARI's operating performance compared to that of other companies in the same industry. In addition, ARI's management uses EBITDA to evaluate operating performance. The calculation of EBITDA eliminates the effects of financing, income taxes and the accounting effects of capital spending. These items may vary for different companies for reasons unrelated to the overall operating performance of a company's business. EBITDA is not a financial measure presented in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (U.S. GAAP). Accordingly, when analyzing the Company's operating performance, investors should not consider EBITDA in isolation or as a substitute for net earnings, cash flows provided by operating activities or other statement of operations or cash flow data prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. The calculation of EBITDA is not necessarily comparable to that of other similarly titled measures reported by other companies.

Adjusted EBITDA represents EBITDA before share-based compensation (income) expense related to stock appreciation rights (SARs), other income related to our short-term investments and the loss on sale of the Company's investment in the India joint venture. Management believes that Adjusted EBITDA is useful to investors in evaluating the Company's operating performance, and therefore uses Adjusted EBITDA for that purpose. The Company's SARs, which settle in cash, are revalued each period based primarily upon changes in ARI's stock price. Management believes that eliminating the (income) expense associated with share-based compensation, income associated with short-term investments, and other one-time, nonrecurring, unusual or infrequent charges, expenses or gains that may not be indicative of the Company's core business results allows management and ARI's investors to understand better the operating results independent of financial changes caused by the fluctuating price and value of the Company's common stock, short-term investments and certain non-recurring events. Adjusted EBITDA is not a financial measure presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Accordingly, when analyzing operating performance, investors should not consider Adjusted EBITDA in isolation or as a substitute for net earnings, cash flows provided by operating activities or other statements of operations or cash flow data prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. The Company's calculation of Adjusted EBITDA is not necessarily comparable to that of other similarly titled measures reported by other companies.
