Genesee & Wyoming Reports Traffic For July 2013

Genesee & Wyoming Inc. (G&W) (NYSE: GWR) today reported traffic volumes for July 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 July 2013 was 165,072 carloads, an increase of 84,214 carloads, or 104.2%, compared to G&W’s traffic in July 2012, and an increase of 13,400 carloads, or 8.8%, compared to total July 2012 carloads pro forma for the RA acquisition.

Metals traffic increased 3,910 carloads primarily in G&W’s Ohio Valley, Northeast and Southern regions due to increased shipment volumes in all three regions and partially due to a maintenance outage at a steel mill in the Southern region that negatively affected shipment volumes in July 2012. Agricultural products traffic increased 2,214 carloads primarily due to increased shipments in G&W’s Australia and Midwest regions. Metallic Ores traffic increased 1,857 carloads primarily due to increased iron ore shipments in G&W’s Australia Region. Minerals & Stone traffic increased 1,613 carloads primarily due to increased rock salt shipments in G&W’s Northeast Region. All remaining traffic increased by a net 3,806 carloads.
