2013 Second Quarter Results

In discussing the company's second quarter performance, Mark DiBlasi, President and CEO of Roadrunner, said,

“Strong performance across all of our business segments generated second quarter revenue growth of 26.4% and net revenue growth of 35.6%. Due to sales and operational initiatives, our operating income growth of 31.4% outpaced revenue. Our operating ratio improved 30 basis points to 92.6%, compared to 92.9% in the second quarter of 2012.

“Our LTL operating ratio remained the same quarter-over-quarter and improved sequentially to 91.9% in the second quarter of 2013 from 93.2% in the first quarter of 2013. Our continued initiatives to expand into new geographic regions, build density, improve pricing, and enhance productivity, as well as the addition of Expedited Freight Systems (EFS) in August 2012, resulted in a net revenue margin improvement from 25.8% in the second quarter of 2012 to 28.8% in the second quarter of 2013.

“Our continued performance initiatives led to our TL operating ratio improving to 93.0% in the second quarter of 2013 from 93.9% in the second quarter of 2012. TL revenues grew by $50.2 million, or 45.2%, from the prior year quarter. Incremental revenues from our 2012 and 2013 acquisitions accounted for $43.3 million of the increase, with the remaining $6.9 million representing organic growth of 6.2% from our existing business. The positive impact of the acquisitions and operating leverage associated with our revenue growth led to a 66.2% increase in our TL operating income quarter-over-quarter.

“TMS revenue grew $3.8 million, or 16.6%, in the second quarter of 2013 from the prior year quarter, primarily due to our 2013 acquisition of Adrian Carriers. This growth, along with a $0.7 million contingent purchase price adjustment, led to a 43.4% increase in TMS operating income quarter-over-quarter."

2013 Third Quarter Guidance

In commenting on guidance for the third quarter of 2013, Peter Armbruster, CFO of Roadrunner, said, “We anticipate our revenues for the third quarter to be in the range of $355 million to $380 million, representing an increase of 27% to 36% from the third quarter of 2012. We expect diluted income per share available to common stockholders to be between $0.36 and $0.39, compared to diluted income per share available to common stockholders of $0.31 in the prior year quarter. Our diluted per share guidance represents an increase of 16% to 26% from the third quarter of 2012 diluted income per share of $0.31. We expect net income available to common stockholders to be between $13.4 million and $14.6 million, representing an increase of 36% to 48% from the third quarter of 2012. Our guidance reflects weighted average diluted shares outstanding of 37.7 million."

TL revenues increased 45.2% to $161.2 million for the second quarter of 2013 from $111.0 million for the second quarter of 2012.

For the second quarter, these acquisitions collectively contributed incremental TL revenues of $43.3 million. Overall, TL net revenues for the second quarter of 2013 were $52.3 million, or 32.4% of TL revenues, compared to $36.5 million, or 32.9% of TL revenues, for the second quarter of 2012.
