Roadrunner Transportation Systems Reports 2012 Third Quarter Results And Announces Fourth Quarter 2012 Guidance

“Strong performance across all of our business segments generated third quarter revenue growth of 23.4% and net revenue growth of 37.0%. Due to sales and operational initiatives, our operating income growth of 40.7% outpaced revenue. Our operating ratio improved 70 basis points to 93.6% from 94.3% in the third quarter of 2011 despite the inclusion of third quarter acquisition transaction expenses and an abnormal $1.7 million sequential increase in the LTL and TL third quarter insurance costs from the second quarter of 2012, which impacted diluted earnings per share by $0.04.

“Our LTL operating ratio improved to 92.4% in the third quarter from 94.8% in the third quarter of 2011. Our continued initiatives to expand into new geographic regions, build density, improve pricing and enhance productivity, as well as the addition of EFS, resulted in a net revenue margin improvement from 23.4% in the third quarter of 2011 to 27.7% in the third quarter of 2012. While incurring integration costs associated with the consolidation of certain EFS operations on a non-recurring basis, we were still able to show substantial improvement over last year in our LTL operating ratio.

“TL revenues grew by $44.9 million, or 56.6%, from the prior year. Incremental revenues from our 2011 and 2012 acquisitions accounted for $31.9 million of the increase, with the balance of $13.0 million representing organic growth of 16.4%. The positive impact of the acquisitions and operating leverage associated with our revenue growth led to a 29.6% increase in our TL operating income. Our TL operating ratio of 94.1% was impacted by an abnormal $1.3 million sequential increase in third quarter insurance costs from the second quarter of 2012. Excluding the increased TL insurance costs, the TL operating ratio would have been 93.1%.

“TMS revenue grew $2.2 million, or 10.4%, from the prior year. Organic growth and pricing accounted for $0.6 million of the increase, with the balance related to our late February 2012 acquisition of Capital Transportation Logistics. The operating leverage associated with this growth led to a 14.7% increase in TMS operating income. Our TMS operating ratio improved to 88.5% from 89.0% in the third quarter of 2011.”
