Genesee & Wyoming Reports Results For The Second Quarter Of 2012

Stocks in this article: GWR

“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.”

Results from Continuing Operations

In the second quarter of 2012, GWI's total operating revenues increased $7.8 million, or 3.7%, to $217.4 million, compared with $209.6 million in the second quarter of 2011. The increase included $6.9 million in revenues from new operations and a $1.0 million, or 0.5%, increase in same railroad operating revenues. During the second quarter of 2012, the depreciation of foreign currencies versus the U.S. dollar decreased same railroad operating revenues by $4.4 million, or 2.1%. Excluding the impact from foreign currency, GWI’s same railroad operating revenues increased $5.4 million, or 2.6%.

Same railroad freight revenues in the second quarter of 2012 increased $1.0 million, or 0.7%, to $147.8 million, compared with $146.8 million in the second quarter of 2011.

Traffic in the second quarter of 2012 included 4,315 carloads from new operations. Same railroad traffic decreased 21,508 carloads, or 8.6%, in the second quarter of 2012.
