Stocks in this article: TGH

Textainer Group Holdings Limited (NYSE:TGH) (“Textainer”), the industry leader in container leasing, today announced the award of the US Department of Defense Container Management Streamlining (“CMS”) Master Lease Contract.

Textainer successfully completed 10 years of the previous CMS contract award, during which Textainer received eight annual "Exceptional" performance evaluations in addition to two National Defense Transportation Quality Awards (NDTA). Textainer Equipment Management (U.S.) Ltd. of San Francisco, Calif., a subsidiary of Textainer, has been awarded a new contract for the program management, leasing, transportation and repair of intermodal equipment. This contract award covers a base year starting on December 24, 2013, with the potential for one year renewals that may extend the contract until 2018.

“Textainer is honored to have the opportunity to continue working with the US Department of Defense to support the worldwide logistics needs of the US Armed Services,” commented Robert D. Pedersen, President and CEO of Textainer Equipment Management Limited. “We are proud of our performance under the prior CMS contract and look forward to continuing our relationship with the US Department of Defense with the new contract award.”

Work will be performed at multiple locations both within and outside of the United States. Program management and transition of operations are funded by fiscal 2014 transportation working capital funds and individual leasing task orders will be funded by each individual Department of Defense service branch or supporting agency at the time the order is placed. The U.S. Transportation Command Directorate of Acquisition, Scott Air Force Base, Ill., is the contracting party.
