“TMS revenue grew $1.8 million, or 8.3%, in the fourth quarter of 2012 from the prior year quarter. Organic growth, pricing and our late February 2012 acquisition of Capital Transportation Logistics accounted for the 8.3% increase. The operating leverage associated with this growth led to a 29.6% increase in TMS operating income quarter-over-quarter. Our TMS operating ratio improved to 88.2% compared to 90.1% in the fourth quarter of 2011.
"Overall, we are extremely pleased with our 2012 performance. In 2012, total company revenue increased 27.2% to $1,073.4 million from $843.6 million in 2011. This revenue growth was a combination of both organic- and acquisition-related growth. Our total company operating income increased 49.5% to $69.0 million in 2012 from $46.1 million in 2011. Our total company operating ratio improved to 93.6% in 2012 from 94.5% in 2011. Finally, our diluted income per share available to common stockholders increased 41.5% to $1.16 in 2012 from $0.82 in 2011."
