Trinity Industries, Inc. Reports Strong Growth In Second Quarter Of 2012 And Increases Full Year 2012 Earnings Guidance

The Energy Equipment Group reported revenues of $130.7 million in the second quarter of 2012 compared to revenues of $117.5 million in the same quarter of 2011. Revenues increased compared to the same period in 2011 as a result of higher demand for tank containers and other products offsetting lower structural wind tower shipments. Operating profit for the second quarter of 2012 increased compared to the same quarter last year as the manufacturing challenges which negatively impacted the Group’s 2011 results moderated. The backlog for structural wind towers as of June 30, 2012 was approximately $817 million compared to approximately $885 million as of March 31, 2012. Approximately $413 million of this backlog is subject to litigation with a structural wind tower customer for the customer’s breach of a long-term supply contract for the manufacture of towers.

Revenues in the Construction Products Group were $156.8 million in the second quarter of 2012 compared to revenues of $149.3 million in the second quarter of 2011. The Group recorded an operating profit of $15.2 million in the second quarter of 2012 compared to an operating profit of $16.1 million in the second quarter of 2011. The increase in revenues for the three month period ended June 30, 2012 compared to the same period in 2011 was primarily attributable to higher volumes in the Concrete and Aggregates business and other product lines partially offset by lower revenues in the Highway Products business. The decrease in operating profit was primarily the result of competitive pricing pressures in the Highway Products business.

Share Repurchase and Dividend Activity

During the quarter, the Company repurchased approximately 1.7 million shares of common stock under its current share repurchase authorization at a cost of $41.2 million leaving $158.8 remaining under its authorization. Additionally, as previously reported in April, the Company declared a 22% increase in its quarterly dividend to 11 cents per common share, payable on July 31, 2012 to shareholders of record on July 13, 2012.
