GATX Corporation Reports 2016 Third-Quarter Results

CHICAGO, Oct. 20, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- GATX Corporation (NYSE:GATX) today reported 2016 third quarter net income of $95.7 million or $2.36 per diluted share, compared to net income of $39.5 million or $0.91 per diluted share in the third quarter of 2015. Year-to-date 2016 net income was $226.2 million or $5.49 per diluted share, compared to $147.1 million or $3.33 per diluted share in the prior year period.

The third quarter 2016 results include a $49.1 million pre-tax residual sharing fee settlement (or $30.3 million after-tax) from the Portfolio Management segment, or $0.75 per diluted share and $0.74 per diluted share year-to-date. Additionally, the third quarter 2016 results include a net after-tax gain from the exit of Portfolio Management’s marine investments and other items of $4.3 million, or $0.11 per diluted share, and a year-to-date net after-tax gain of $6.0 million, or $0.14 per diluted share. Details related to the exit of Portfolio Management’s marine investments and other items are provided in the attached Supplemental Information.

Brian A. Kenney, president and chief executive officer at GATX stated, “Market dynamics in the North American rail industry are similar to recent quarters. A growing oversupply of railcars, fewer railcar loadings, and improved railroad velocity continue to present significant challenges. Railcar lessors are aggressively attempting to place new deliveries and their existing idle railcars, resulting in declining lease rates. In the third quarter, the renewal lease rate change of GATX’s Lease Price Index decreased by 21.4%, the average renewal term was 29 months, and our renewal success rate was 74.1%.

“Despite the difficult market conditions, Rail North America is performing well. Our fleet utilization increased to 99.0% in the quarter; we further optimized our fleet by selling railcars in the secondary market at attractive prices, and we are successfully placing future years’ railcar deliveries from our committed purchase agreement. This continued success is a direct result of GATX’s well-diversified fleet, high-quality customer base, and outstanding service.

“Utilization at GATX Rail Europe remains healthy at 95.0%, despite weakness in the petroleum market. American Steamship Company’s financial performance is stable, as we are operating fewer vessels in 2016 due to soft demand for iron ore on the Great Lakes. In the Portfolio Management segment, remarketing income during the quarter was $49.1 million higher than originally anticipated. This was driven by a large residual sharing fee settlement in the managed portfolio that was received in the quarter.”

Mr. Kenney concluded, “Our strategy in this market is to aggressively protect fleet utilization, reduce the length of lease term as rates decline, continue to improve efficiency within our maintenance network, tightly control SG&A, and capitalize on attractive growth opportunities as asset prices fall. Based on year-to-date performance, we are maintaining our 2016 full-year earnings guidance of $5.55-$5.75 per diluted share. This guidance excludes the $0.74 per share contribution from the Portfolio Management fee noted above.”

RAIL NORTH AMERICA
Rail North America reported segment profit of $87.9 million in the third quarter of 2016, compared to $90.0 million in the third quarter of 2015. Lower segment profit was a result of lower revenues, partially offset by lower maintenance expenses. Year to date, Rail North America reported segment profit of $273.4 million, compared to $280.7 million in the same period of 2015. Lower gains on asset dispositions were partially offset by higher revenues and lower maintenance expenses.

At September 30, 2016, Rail North America’s wholly owned fleet comprised approximately 123,000 railcars, including approximately 18,100 boxcars. The following fleet statistics and performance discussion exclude the boxcar fleet.

Fleet utilization was 99.0% at the end of the third quarter, compared to 98.1% at the end of the prior quarter and 99.2% at the end of the third quarter of 2015. During the third quarter of 2016, the GATX Lease Price Index (LPI), a weighted-average lease renewal rate for a group of railcars representative of Rail North America’s fleet, decreased 21.4% over the weighted-average expiring lease rate. This compares to a decrease of 25.4% in the prior quarter and a 25.6% increase in the third quarter of 2015. The average lease renewal term for railcars included in the LPI during the third quarter was 29 months, compared to 34 months in the prior quarter and 60 months in the third quarter of 2015.

Rail North America’s investment volume during the third quarter was $108.4 million and asset remarketing income was $12.2 million.

Additional fleet statistics, including information about the boxcar fleet, and macroeconomic data related to Rail North America’s business are provided on the last page of this press release.

RAIL INTERNATIONAL
Rail International’s segment profit was $23.3 million in the third quarter of 2016, compared to $15.5 million in the third quarter of 2015. Rail International reported segment profit of $48.9 million year-to-date 2016, compared to $56.4 million for the same period of 2015. While more railcars were on lease, higher maintenance expenses and lower gains on asset dispositions negatively affected segment profit.

At September 30, 2016, GATX Rail Europe’s (GRE) fleet consisted of approximately 23,000 railcars and utilization was 95.0%, compared to 94.8% at the end of the prior quarter and 95.7% at the end of the third quarter of 2015. Additional fleet statistics for GRE are provided on the last page of this press release.

AMERICAN STEAMSHIP COMPANY
American Steamship Company (ASC) reported segment profit of $7.8 million in the third quarter of 2016, compared to a segment profit of $10.9 million in the third quarter of 2015. Segment profit year-to-date 2016 was $12.9 million, compared to $13.4 million year-to-date 2015. ASC carried 8.7 million net tons of cargo in the third quarter of 2016, compared to 10.2 million net tons in the prior year period. Lower segment profit was a result of less tonnage transported on the Great Lakes, partially offset by lower operating costs due to fewer vessels in operation.

PORTFOLIO MANAGEMENT
Portfolio Management reported segment profit of $64.1 million in the third quarter of 2016, compared to a segment loss of $17.3 million in the third quarter of 2015 (including a net pre-tax loss of approximately $42.5 million associated with the planned exit of the majority of Portfolio Management’s marine investments). Segment profit year-to-date 2016 was $119.2 million, compared to $8.9 million year-to-date 2015. The increase in segment profit was predominantly driven by a $49.1 million residual sharing fee settlement.

Third quarter 2016 segment profit includes a net pre-tax gain of approximately $0.7 million, and year-to-date net pre-tax gain of approximately $3.4 million associated with the planned exit of the majority of the marine investments.

Management utilizes this information when analyzing financial performance because such amounts reflect the underlying operating results that are within management’s ability to influence. Accordingly, we believe presenting this information provides investors and other users of our financial statements with meaningful supplemental information for purposes of analyzing year-to-year financial performance on a comparable basis and assessing trends.

(*) We disclose total on- and off-balance sheet assets because certain operating assets are accounted for as operating leases and are not recorded on the balance sheet. We include these leased-in assets in our calculation of total assets (as adjusted) because it gives investors a more comprehensive representation of the magnitude of the assets we operate and that drive our financial performance. In addition, this calculation of total assets (as adjusted) provides consistency with other non-financial information we disclose. We also provide information regarding our leverage ratios, which are expressed as a ratio of debt (including off-balance sheet debt) to equity. The off-balance sheet debt amount in this calculation is the equivalent of the off-balance sheet asset amount. Reporting this corresponding off-balance sheet debt amount provides investors and other users of our financial statements with a more comprehensive representation of our debt obligations, leverage, and capital structure.

_________
(1) GATX’s Lease Price Index (LPI) is an internally-generated business indicator that measures lease rate pricing on renewals for our North American railcar fleet, excluding boxcars. The index is calculated using the weighted average lease rate for a group of railcar types that GATX believes best represents its overall North American fleet, excluding boxcars. The average renewal lease rate change is reported as the percentage change between the average renewal lease rate and the average expiring lease rate, weighted by fleet composition. The average renewal lease term is reported in months and reflects the average renewal lease term of railcar types in the LPI, weighted by fleet composition.
(2) Excludes boxcar fleet.
(3) As reported and revised by the Federal Reserve.
(4) As reported by the Association of American Railroads (AAR).
(5) As reported by the Railway Supply Institute (RSI).
(6) Not available, not published as of the date of this release.
