Genesee & Wyoming Reports Results For The Fourth Quarter Of 2012

RailAmerica Results

As described above, because GWI did not control RailAmerica until December 28, 2012, we accounted for the fourth quarter earnings of RailAmerica using the equity method of accounting. We are providing the following analysis of RailAmerica’s fourth quarter 2012 results in order to provide a comparison to their fourth quarter 2011 results.

RailAmerica’s revenues in the fourth quarter of 2012 increased 2.6% to $151.1 million, compared with $147.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2011. The increase included $5.9 million from new operations. RailAmerica’s same railroad revenues decreased $2.1 million, or 1.5%. Same railroad freight revenues increased 6.5% to $110.0 million, with average revenue per car up 7.6% and carloads down 1.0%. Non-freight revenues declined $6.0 million, or 13.7%, to $38.0 million, primarily due to lower activity at Atlas Railroad Construction Company (Atlas).

RailAmerica’s traffic in the fourth quarter of 2012 was 214,272 carloads, an increase of 2,424 carloads, or 1.1%, compared with the fourth quarter of 2011. Traffic in the fourth quarter of 2012 included 4,709 carloads from new operations. Same railroad traffic decreased 2,285 carloads, or 1.1%, in the fourth quarter of 2012. The same railroad traffic decrease was principally due to a decrease of 7,421 carloads, or 18.0%, in coal traffic, partially offset by an increase of 3,127 carloads, or 3.4%, in industrial products traffic (primarily chemicals and petroleum traffic), and an increase of 2,155 carloads, or 4.5%, in agricultural products and food traffic (primarily export soybean traffic). All remaining traffic decreased by a net 146 carloads.

RailAmerica’s same railroad non-freight revenues in the fourth quarter of 2012 were $35.1 million, compared with same railroad non-freight revenues in the fourth quarter of 2011 of $44.0 million. RailAmerica’s same railroad non-freight revenues decreased by $8.9 million, or 20.1%, primarily due to an $11.5 million decrease in Atlas’ construction activity.
