Trinity Industries, Inc. (NYSE:TRN) today announced earnings results for the fourth quarter and full year 2012, including the following significant highlights:
  • Year-over-year fourth quarter and full year revenue growth of 11% and 30%, respectively, and earnings per common diluted share growth of 61% and 93%, respectively, after adjusting for one-time items in 2011
  • Rail Group orders for 5,620 new railcars during the fourth quarter, increasing the backlog to 31,990 units with a value of $3.7 billion
  • Rail Group shipments of 4,960 railcars during the fourth quarter and 19,360 railcars during the full year
  • Inland Barge Group orders of $193 million during the fourth quarter, resulting in a backlog of $564 million
  • Available liquidity at the end of the fourth quarter of more than $1.2 billion, including $573 million of cash and the Company's unused committed credit facilities

Trinity Industries, Inc. reported net income attributable to Trinity stockholders of $71.3 million, or $0.90 per common diluted share, for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2012. Net income for the same quarter of 2011 was $56.1 million, or $0.70 per common diluted share. Included in the results for the fourth quarter of 2011 was a pre-tax gain of $17.0 million, or $0.14 per common diluted share, due to flood-related insurance settlements.

Revenues for the fourth quarter of 2012 increased 11% to $1.0 billion compared to revenues of $914.3 million for the same quarter of 2011. The Company reported an operating profit of $158.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2012, a 14% increase compared to an operating profit of $139.5 million for the same quarter last year.

For the year ended December 31, 2012, the Company reported net income attributable to Trinity stockholders of $255.2 million, or $3.19 per common diluted share. In 2011, the Company reported net income of $142.2 million, or $1.77 per common diluted share. Prior year results included a pre-tax net gain of $15.5 million or $0.12 per common diluted share, due to flood-related insurance settlements. Revenues for the year ended December 31, 2012 were $3.8 billion, a 30% increase compared to revenues of $2.9 billion in 2011.

“I am pleased with our strong financial results for the fourth quarter and our overall performance during 2012,” said Timothy R. Wallace, Trinity’s Chairman, CEO and President. “We have worked diligently over the past decade to position our company to perform well through a variety of economic conditions. Trinity’s competency in manufacturing flexibility provides us the ability to redirect a portion of our manufacturing resources towards select areas that have strong demand levels for our products. In 2012, we achieved significant growth in consolidated revenues and earnings despite continuing uncertainty within some areas of the economy.”

“During 2013, we will continue to invest resources to position our company to pursue opportunities for infrastructure-related products that support the growing needs in the energy, chemical, transportation, and construction industries,” Mr. Wallace continued. “At this point, we have been successful in obtaining order backlogs in several of our major businesses that will provide long production runs for products serving these industries.”

Business Group Results

In the fourth quarter of 2012, the Rail Group reported revenues of $571.1 million and an operating profit of $70.7 million compared to revenues of $453.3 million and an operating profit of $34.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2011. Results for the fourth quarter of 2012 included approximately $0.04 per common diluted share of after-tax costs associated with the repositioning of a portion of the Company's production capacity. The Rail Group shipped 4,960 railcars and received orders for 5,620 railcars during the fourth quarter. The Rail Group backlog increased to $3.7 billion at December 31, 2012, representing 31,990 railcars, compared to a backlog of $3.3 billion as of September 30, 2012, representing 31,330 railcars. The increase in backlog as of December 31, 2012 reflects the value of orders taken during the quarter as well as contractual pricing adjustments on long-term orders previously received.

During the fourth quarter of 2012, the Railcar Leasing and Management Services Group reported leasing and management revenues of $132.6 million compared to $127.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2011 due to continued growth in the lease fleet and higher rental rates. In addition, the Group recognized revenue of $18.1 million in sales of railcars from the lease fleet during the fourth quarter compared to $29.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2011. Proceeds from the sale of railcars from the lease fleet owned for more than a year at the time of sale totaling $31.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2012 and $42.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2011 are not included in revenue. Operating profit for this Group was $72.9 million for the fourth quarter of 2012 compared to operating profit of $75.9 million during the fourth quarter of 2011. Included in the operating results for the fourth quarter of 2012 were $15.3 million of profit from railcar sales totaling $49.5 million compared to $18.4 million of profit from railcar sales totaling $71.9 million for the same period last year.

The Inland Barge Group reported revenues of $165.4 million compared to revenues of $149.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2011. The increase in revenues was due to higher volumes and a change in mix of barge types. Operating profit for this Group was $31.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2012 compared to $39.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2011. Fourth quarter 2011 operating profit included a gain of $17.0 million due to flood-related insurance settlements. During the fourth quarter of 2012, the Inland Barge Group received orders of $193 million, and as of December 31, 2012 had a backlog of $564 million compared to a backlog of $537 million as of September 30, 2012.

The Energy Equipment Group reported revenues of $167.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2012 compared to revenues of $125.0 million in the same quarter of 2011. Revenues increased compared to the same period in 2011 as a result of higher structural wind tower shipments and increased demand for containers and tank heads. Operating profit for the fourth quarter of 2012 increased to $8.5 million compared to a loss of $0.9 million in the same quarter last year due to manufacturing challenges that negatively impacted the Group's 2011 results. The backlog for structural wind towers as of December 31, 2012 was $680 million compared to $754 million as of September 30, 2012. Approximately $413 million of this backlog is subject to litigation with a customer for the customer's breach of a long-term supply contract for the manufacture of towers.

Revenues in the Construction Products Group were $109.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2012 compared to revenues of $115.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2011. The Group recorded an operating profit of $9.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2012 compared to an operating profit of $11.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2011. The decline in revenues and operating profit for the fourth quarter of 2012 compared to the same period in 2011 was primarily attributable to competitive pricing pressures and higher operating expenses in the Highway Products business offset partially by higher volumes and improved operating efficiencies in the Aggregates business. In December 2012, the Company entered into an agreement to sell its remaining ready-mix concrete operations which have been historically reported as a component of the Construction Products Group. This divestiture, expected to close during 2013, is considered a discontinued operation and, accordingly, the effects of its operations have been excluded from the Construction Products Group for financial reporting purposes.

Earnings Outlook

The Company’s earnings guidance for the first quarter of 2013 is between $0.75 and $0.82 per common diluted share compared to $0.66 per common diluted share in the first quarter of 2012. For the full year of 2013, the Company anticipates earnings per common diluted share of between $3.45 and $3.75 compared to full year earnings per common diluted share of $3.19 in 2012. Results for the first quarter and full year 2013 could be impacted by a number of factors, including, among others: the operating leverage and efficiencies that can be achieved by the Company’s manufacturing businesses; the level of sales of railcars from the leasing portfolio; the amount of profit eliminations due to railcar additions to the Leasing Group; and the impact of weather conditions on businesses within the Construction Products Group.

Trinity Industries, Inc. Reconciliation of EBITDA(in millions)(unaudited)

“EBITDA” is defined as income (loss) from continuing operations plus interest expense, income taxes, and depreciation and amortization including goodwill impairment charges. EBITDA is not a calculation based on generally accepted accounting principles. The amounts included in the EBITDA calculation are, however, derived from amounts included in the historical statements of operations data. In addition, EBITDA should not be considered as an alternative to net income or operating income as an indicator of our operating performance, or as an alternative to operating cash flows as a measure of liquidity. We believe EBITDA assists investors in comparing a company's performance on a consistent basis without regard to depreciation and amortization, which can vary significantly depending upon many factors.
