Genesee & Wyoming Reports Results For The Third Quarter Of 2012

Genesee & Wyoming Inc. (GWI) (NYSE: GWR)

Third Quarter Highlights

  • Adjusted diluted earnings per share of $0.74 (adjusted primarily for RailAmerica acquisition and financing-related expenses); Reported diluted net loss of $0.47 per share (1)
  • Revenues increased 2.5% versus third quarter of 2011, as an increase in average revenues per carload more than offset weakness in U.S. coal and Australian grain traffic
  • North American and European adjusted operating ratio of 74.7% (adjusted primarily for RailAmerica acquisition and financing-related expenses); Reported North American and European operating ratio of 77.7% (2)
  • Australian adjusted operating ratio of 75.7% (adjusted primarily for net gains on the sale of assets); Reported Australian operating ratio of 73.3% (2)

Jack Hellmann, President and CEO of GWI, commented, “The third quarter of 2012 was significant for GWI as we finalized the documentation and financing that enabled us to close the RailAmerica acquisition on October 1 st. The shares of RailAmerica are now being held in a voting trust while the U.S. Surface Transportation Board (STB) considers GWI’s pending control application. We are excited about the outlook for the Genesee & Wyoming and RailAmerica combination and we hope to receive the STB decision in the near term.” *

“Our financial results for the third quarter of 2012 were consistent with our expectations in both North America and Australia. In North America, despite continued weakness in our coal and overhead coal traffic, as well as lower salt shipments due to last year’s mild winter, we are managing our costs well and sustained an adjusted operating ratio of 74.7%. In Australia, our adjusted operating ratio of 75.7% was 1.4 percentage points higher than last year primarily due to hiring, training and start-up costs associated with a major new iron ore contract that commenced revenue shipments in late October. We expect our Australian iron ore shipments to increase in the fourth quarter of 2012 and into 2013, initially through the Port of Darwin and later through the Port of Whyalla, as soon as the necessary infrastructure construction has been completed.” (2)
