Textainer Group Holdings Limited (NYSE: TGH) (“Textainer”, “the Company”, “we” and “our”), the world’s largest lessor of intermodal containers based on fleet size reported second quarter 2013 results.
“The second quarter was marked by attractive growth in both our lease rental income and net income,” commented Philip K. Brewer, President and Chief Executive Officer of Textainer. “EBITDA also increased significantly from the second quarter of last year demonstrating our strong generation of cash.
“Total capex ordered for delivery in 2013 was $692 million. Our fleet size has grown by 9.4% over the past twelve months to 2.9 million TEU. Utilization has averaged 95.1% year to date and is 94.3% currently. Utilization has been quite stable remaining within 1% of its current level for more than four months.
“Although the demand for containers improved in the second quarter, we continue to see compression of returns due to the high level of liquidity among container lessors and the ease with which containers can be purchased at factories. We expect these market conditions to continue for the near term. We are also expecting a muted peak season with utilization remaining near today’s levels as the market stabilizes,” added Mr. Brewer.Business Highlights:
- Continued strong pace of expansion, investing $494 million in new and used containers year-to-date following $198 million invested in new containers in the fourth quarter of 2012 for lease outs in 2013;
- Total fleet size grew by 9.4% to 2.9 million TEU, given the strong pace of investment over the past year;
