Textainer Group Holdings Limited Reports Record Fourth-Quarter And Full-Year 2011 Results And Increases Quarterly Dividend

TMCL’s issuance of $400 million in fixed rate asset backed notes in June represented one of the largest container securitizations in history and again demonstrated Textainer’s ability to attract strong investor support in the debt markets. With a debt-to-equity ratio of 2.2:1, the Company is in a strong position to continue purchasing both new and used containers to meet market demand and maintain our industry leading position.


Capital expenditures for new standard dry-freight and refrigerated containers were the highest in the Company’s history and in-fleet container utilization continues to remain at or near historic highs. Demand for new standard dry-freight containers began to slow during the second quarter but demand for depot equipment remained strong. Utilization declined by approximately 1%, over the last half of the year. “With 2011 as a backdrop, we expect that utilization may continue its slight decline during the first quarter of 2012, but that the overall level will remain attractive,” commented Mr. Brewer. “We are optimistic that utilization may level off or start to improve during the second quarter of 2012 and with 78% of our fleet committed to long-term and direct financing and sales-type leases, we have a sizeable contracted revenue stream which we expect will continue to provide our shareholders with attractive returns. We are off to a good start in 2012, with 32,000 TEU of dry freight containers and 5,000 TEU of refrigerated containers already ordered. Furthermore, resale prices have recently declined in some locations but, relative to the last ten years, current resale price levels remain very high.”


On February 10, 2012, Textainer’s board of directors approved and declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.37 per share on Textainer’s issued and outstanding common shares, payable on March 6, 2012 to shareholders of record as of February 24, 2012. This dividend is an increase of $0.02 per share from the prior quarter, Textainer’s eighth consecutive quarterly increase, and will continue the Company’s history of paying constant or higher dividends every quarter since its October 2007 initial public offering. Combined, these dividends have averaged 43% of Adjusted net income(1) during this period. The current dividend represents 35% of Adjusted net income(1).
