Genesee & Wyoming Reports Traffic For December And The Fourth Quarter Of 2013

Stocks in this article: GWR

Genesee & Wyoming Inc. (G&W) (NYSE:GWR) today reported traffic volumes for December 2013 and the fourth quarter of 2013.

Beginning in January 2013, G&W is reporting consolidated traffic volumes including carloads from RailAmerica Inc. (RA) railroads that were previously reported separately. To provide comparative context for 2013 consolidated traffic volumes, G&W is providing supplemental 2012 carload information on a pro forma basis as though the RA railroads were owned by G&W on January 1, 2012. In addition, G&W has amended RA’s 2012 carload information to conform with G&W’s reporting methodology.

G&W’s traffic in December 2013 was 155,769 carloads, an increase of 81,240 carloads, or 109.0%, compared to G&W’s traffic in December 2012, and an increase of 15,451 carloads, or 11.0%, compared to total December 2012 carloads pro forma for the RA acquisition. G&W’s traffic in the fourth quarter of 2013 was 471,906 carloads, an increase of 242,088 carloads, or 105.3%, compared to G&W’s traffic in the fourth quarter of 2012, and an increase of 32,988 carloads, or 7.5%, compared to total fourth quarter of 2012 carloads pro forma for the RA acquisition.

The table below sets forth consolidated summary carload information for December 2013 and December 2012:
