Textainer Group Holdings Limited Reports Third-Quarter 2012 Results And Increases Quarterly Dividend

“We have seen some compression of returns from new container investments over the course of the year. While we remain pleased with the performance of these investments, we are also excited about our managed fleet acquisitions. Such purchases are immediately accretive to earnings as the containers are on-lease from their purchase date and these older containers generally have less depreciation expense than new containers.”

Dividend

On November 5, 2012, Textainer’s board of directors approved and declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.44 per share on Textainer’s issued and outstanding common shares, payable on November 28, 2012 to shareholders of record as of November 16, 2012. This dividend is an increase of $0.02 per share from the prior quarter. The current dividend represents 50% of adjusted net income (1).

“We again achieved an excellent annualized return on equity of 24% in the third quarter, compared to an average of 23% annually since our IPO. We also increased our dividend by 5% from the second quarter, resulting in a 50% payout ratio. This is our eleventh consecutive quarterly dividend increase, continues our record of either stable or increasing dividends every quarter and is a 19% increase compared to the dividend paid in the fourth quarter of 2011,” added Mr. Brewer. “We believe our focus on total shareholder return is the best way to maximize shareholder value.”
