WARREN, Mich., Oct. 5, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Universal Logistics Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: ULH) announced today the planned release of third quarter 2017 financial results after the market closes on Thursday, October 26, 2017.
Based on currently available information, Universal expects to report income from operations in the range of $12.0 million to $13.5 million, on total operating revenues anticipated to range from $300 million to $305 million. This compares to $10.0 million of operating income in the third quarter of 2016 on revenues totaling $271.5 million. Universal anticipates earnings per diluted share to be in the range of $0.22 to $0.25 for the third quarter of 2017, compared to $0.18 per share in third quarter 2016.
"The third quarter is shaping up to be a good quarter for us," stated Universal's Chief Executive Officer, Jeff Rogers. "In addition to another quarter of double-digit revenue growth, our logistics teams did a great job of turning around a few underperforming value-added operations. Transportation is delivering solid results, and as capacity continues to tighten, I believe we are well positioned to take advantage of the strengthening freight environment. We are optimistic for the remainder of the year, and very excited about the road ahead."
