Brian A. Kenney, president and chief executive officer of GATX, said, “The North American rail market remains strong due to unprecedented demand for tank cars. In 2012, we capitalized on the favorable market conditions by increasing lease rates while successfully stretching lease terms. In the fourth quarter, the renewal rate change of GATX’s Lease Price Index (“LPI”) was a positive 32.3% and the average renewal term for cars in the LPI was 65 months. On a full-year basis, the renewal rate change of the LPI was a positive 25.6% and the average renewal term was 60 months. Additionally, fleet utilization approximated 98% and our renewal success rate averaged over 80% for the year. We also used the strong market to optimize our fleet by selling railcars, generating improved asset remarketing income in Rail North America.
