Express-1 Expedited Solutions Reports Second Quarter 2011 Results

Express-1 Expedited Solutions, Inc. (NYSE Amex: XPO) (“Express-1” or the “Company”) today announced its financial results for the second quarter of 2011. Total revenue from continuing operations for the second quarter was $44.1 million, a 9.3% increase from the same period in 2010.

Net income from continuing operations for the second quarter was $914,000, or $.03 diluted earnings per share, compared with $1,504,000, or $.05 diluted earnings per share, for the same period in 2010. Gross margin of $7,180,000 declined 1.6 percentage points year-over-year to 16.3% for the quarter, reflecting a choppy environment for the Company’s Express-1 business unit, partially offset by gains in other operating segments.

Mike Welch, chief executive officer, said, “While our revenue growth in the quarter was solid, we experienced margin pressure within our Express-1 unit, including a greater reliance on high-volume, lower-rate customers, and the strategic expansion of our cross-border business. In addition, we drove 43% revenue growth in Bounce Logistics, a business model that generates a lower margin. Non-operational impacts on results included expenses related to the proposed equity investment led by Jacobs Private Equity, and a modification to the revenue recognition policy for our CGL unit that reduced both our top line and our profitability.

“Domestic demand began to strengthen late in the quarter, as reflected in our June gross margin of 16.9%. In addition, we are continuing to see significant growth in our business with Mexico, where Express-1’s expertise in border logistics is a competitive advantage. We anticipate that our overall operating environment will continue to become more favorable through the balance of the year as Japan’s export production recovers from the tsunami and seasonal retail activity develops.”

Welch continued, “Our board has recommended the proposed investment in Express-1 led by Jacobs Private Equity. This is a tremendous opportunity for the company to carve out a major position under the new banner of XPO Logistics in three areas where we already excel: expedited transportation solutions, domestic and international freight forwarding, and premium truckload brokerage. We look forward to the stockholder vote on September 1.”
