Textainer Group Holdings Limited Reports Second Quarter 2013 Results And Increases Quarterly Dividend

Stocks in this article: TGH

“We expect that total new container production will be substantially below the level of 2012, and that lessors will purchase around 50% of total output. New container prices have declined steadily since March and are at levels not seen since early 2010. We do not expect to see new container prices rise significantly from their current levels during the remainder of the year. Used container prices have fallen by approximately 10% over the last twelve months and additional declines are possible. We expect to see an increasing number of purchase leaseback opportunities, but pricing for such deals is equally as competitive as for new equipment lease-outs. Additionally, although we are just getting started, we are excited about the opportunity to work with Trifleet to expand into the tank market,” concluded Mr. Brewer.


On August 2, 2013, Textainer’s board of directors approved and declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.47 per share on Textainer’s issued and outstanding common shares, payable on August 27, 2013 to shareholders of record as of August 16, 2013. This dividend is an increase of $0.01 per share from the prior quarter and represents 59% of this quarter’s adjusted net income (1).

“We increased our dividend by $0.01 from the prior quarter. While we continue to target a dividend level of approximately 50% of net income, this payout is slightly higher at 59%,” stated Mr. Brewer. “Our dividend reflects our confidence in the long-term outlook for our business and in our strong cash flow. We believe our dividend enables us to balance investing for growth in the business and providing attractive ongoing returns to our shareholders.”
