Textainer Group Holdings Limited Reports First-Quarter 2012 Results And Increases Quarterly Dividend

Stocks in this article: TGH


The run rate of capital expenditures for new dry-freight and refrigerated containers already exceeds the record levels of 2011. In-fleet container utilization continues to remain at or near historic highs.

“Although utilization decreased 1.3% during the first quarter of 2012 compared to the year ago quarter, it has improved steadily since early April,” commented Mr. Brewer. “Today, 79% of our fleet is committed to long-term, direct financing and sales-type leases, compared to 76% a year ago, which reduces the volatility of our utilization. We continue to see strong demand for new containers and expect to maintain our focus on healthy organic growth during the coming months.”


On May 4, 2012, Textainer’s board of directors approved and declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.40 per share on Textainer’s issued and outstanding common shares, payable on May 29, 2012 to shareholders of record as of May 18, 2012. This dividend is an increase of $0.03 per share from the prior quarter, Textainer’s ninth consecutive quarterly increase, and will continue the Company’s history of paying constant or higher dividends. The current dividend represents 41% of Adjusted net income (1).

“Our consistent performance and confidence in our long-term outlook enables us to increase our dividend for the ninth consecutive quarter as we continue to focus on total shareholder return,” concluded Mr. Brewer.
