Genesee & Wyoming Reports Results For The Second Quarter Of 2012

“Over the past two weeks, GWI has announced a series of important transactions that we expect to strengthen our long-term earnings growth. In North America, the pending acquisition of RailAmerica will create an expanded national footprint for commercial and industrial development. In Australia, the announced expansion of our export iron ore contracts in South Australia, the acquisition of a freight and intermodal terminal in Alice Springs, as well as the final delivery of new, high-horsepower locomotives further strengthen our service position in central Australia. Finally, our announcement today that we have signed an agreement with Tata Steel Minerals Canada to construct and operate a rail line in the Labrador Trough once again highlights our expanding capabilities to serve the global mining industry.”
