FreightCar America, Inc. Reports Third Quarter 2012 Results

Revenues for the Services segment were $8.1 million in the third quarter of 2012 compared to $7.9 million in the third quarter of 2011 and $9.4 million in the second quarter of 2012. Services segment operating income was $0.6 million for the third quarter of 2012 compared to $1.1 million in the third quarter of 2011 and $0.7 million in the second quarter of 2012. Results for the Services segment reflect a less favorable mix versus the prior quarter and same quarter last year.

Corporate costs were $6.6 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2012 compared to $6.2 million in the same quarter of 2011 and flat with the second quarter of 2012.

The Company’s effective tax rate was 39.2% in the first nine months ended September 30, 2012. The effective tax rate was 12.3% in the first nine months of 2011.

Cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash as of September 30, 2012 were $144.2 million, compared to $124.4 million as of June 30, 2012. The increase in cash is primarily due to reduction in inventories partially offset by an increase in receivables and decrease in payables. The Company’s $30.0 million revolving credit facility remains undrawn.

Railcars under lease totaled $51.0 million at the end of the third quarter of 2012 compared to $67.1 million at the end of the second quarter of 2012.
