  • Quarterly revenues and net income of $905.5 million and $51.1 million, respectively, compared to $1.2 billion and $94.6 million, respectively, in 2016
  • Quarterly earnings per common diluted share of $0.33 compared to $0.62 per share in 2016
  • Quarterly deliveries and orders totaling 4,055 and 5,705 railcars, respectively, in the Rail Group, compared to 6,065 and 2,910 railcars, respectively, in 2016
  • Rail Group backlog increases to 27,580 railcars as of June 30, 2017 from 26,420 railcars as of March 31, 2017, with a value of $2.7 billion for both periods
  • Company completes sales of $99.5 million of leased railcars during the quarter compared to sales of $149.1 million in 2016 with associated earnings per common diluted share of $0.11 and $0.18, respectively
  • Company repurchases approximately 1.9 million shares of common stock under its share repurchase authorization during the quarter at a cost of $52.4 million
  • Anticipates full year 2017 earnings per common diluted share of between $1.10 and $1.30 compared to its previous full year 2017 earnings guidance of between $1.00 and $1.25 per share

Consolidated Results

Trinity Industries, Inc. reported net income attributable to Trinity stockholders of $51.1 million, or $0.33 per common diluted share, for the second quarter ended June 30, 2017. Net income for the same quarter of 2016 was $94.6 million, or $0.62 per common diluted share. Revenues for the second quarter of 2017 totaled $905.5 million compared to revenues of $1.2 billion for the same quarter of 2016.

“Our financial results for the second quarter of 2017 came in slightly ahead of our expectations,” said Timothy R. Wallace, Trinity’s Chairman, CEO and President. “Our markets remain highly competitive as supply and demand imbalances continue to impact many of our end markets. Generally speaking, when industry-order levels reach low points we begin to see strategic purchases occurring in our businesses. During the second quarter, this occurred in our railcar manufacturing business. I am very pleased with the order level our Rail Group received. Our Leasing and Construction Products businesses generated solid results during the quarter.”

Business Group Results

In the second quarter of 2017, the Rail Group reported revenues of $465.9 million compared to revenues of $693.2 million in the second quarter of 2016. Operating profit and profit margin for the Rail Group were $37.0 million and 7.9% in the second quarter of 2017 compared to $88.8 million and 12.8% in the second quarter of 2016. The decreases in revenues and operating profit were primarily due to significantly lower railcar deliveries. The Rail Group delivered 4,055 railcars and received orders for 5,705 railcars during the second quarter of 2017 compared to 6,065 and 2,910 railcars, respectively, in the same quarter last year. The Rail Group had a backlog of $2.7 billion as of June 30, 2017, representing 27,580 railcars, compared to a backlog of $2.7 billion as of March 31, 2017, representing 26,420 railcars.

The Railcar Leasing and Management Services Group (“Leasing Group”) reported revenues and operating profit from leasing and management operations of $185.0 million and $85.6 million, respectively, in the second quarter of 2017, an increase of 3.6% and 14.9%, respectively, compared to the same quarter of 2016. The increases in revenues and operating profit reflect higher net additions to the lease fleet partially offset by lower average lease rates. Lower fleet maintenance and compliance expenses during the second quarter of 2017 also contributed to the increase in operating profit.

Total proceeds and operating profit from the sale of leased railcars from the lease fleet, including the sale of railcars owned for more than one year that are not included in revenue, were $99.5 million and $25.2 million, respectively, for the second quarter of 2017 compared with total proceeds and operating profit of $149.1 million and $43.2 million, respectively, in the second quarter of 2016. The decreases in proceeds and operating profit reflects a lower volume of leased railcar sales. Supplemental information for the Leasing Group is provided in the accompanying tables.

The Inland Barge Group reported revenues of $33.5 million in the second quarter of 2017 compared to revenues of $118.3 million in the second quarter of 2016. Operating profit and profit margin for this Group were $0.5 million and 1.5% in the second quarter of 2017 compared to $14.3 million and 12.1% in the second quarter of 2016. The decreases in revenues and operating profit compared to the same quarter last year were primarily due to significantly lower barge deliveries and changes in product mix. The Inland Barge Group had a backlog of $90.7 million as of June 30, 2017 compared to a backlog of $109.9 million as of March 31, 2017.

The Energy Equipment Group reported revenues of $238.5 million in the second quarter of 2017 compared to revenues of $240.6 million in the same quarter of 2016. Operating profit and profit margin for this Group were $24.3 million and 10.2% compared to $34.9 million and 14.5% in the same quarter last year. An increase in volumes in the Group's wind towers and utility structures product lines was offset by lower delivery volumes in the Group's other product lines leading to a decrease in revenues and operating profit compared to the same quarter last year. The backlog for structural wind towers as of June 30, 2017 was $0.9 billion compared to a backlog of $1.0 billion as of March 31, 2017.

The Construction Products Group reported revenues of $131.3 million in the second quarter of 2017 compared to revenues of $145.8 million in the second quarter of 2016. The decrease in revenues compared to the same quarter last year was primarily due to lower volumes in our highway products business. Operating profit and profit margin were $22.3 million and 17.0% in the second quarter of 2017 compared to $21.5 million and 14.7% in the same quarter last year. Operating profit increased compared to the same quarter last year primarily due to improved manufacturing efficiencies.

Cash and Liquidity

At June 30, 2017, the Company had cash, cash equivalents, and short-term marketable securities of $988.3 million. When combined with capacity under committed credit facilities, the Company had approximately $2.3 billion of available liquidity at the end of the second quarter.

Share Repurchase

For the second quarter and year to date, the Company repurchased 1,942,200 shares of common stock at a cost of $52.4 million leaving $163.0 million remaining under its current authorization through December 31, 2017.

Effective Tax Rate

In 2017, the Company adopted a new accounting standard which changed the accounting for certain aspects of share-based payments to employees. As a result, the Company anticipates there will be greater volatility in the provision for income taxes, primarily in the second quarter each year when the Company's share-based payments typically vest, resulting from stock price fluctuations between the grant date and the vest date. For the second quarter of 2017, the effective tax rate was 40.9% primarily related to share-based compensation compared to 35.1% in the second quarter of 2016, which excluded this impact.

Earnings Guidance for 2017

For the full year of 2017, the Company anticipates earnings per common diluted share of between $1.10 and $1.30 compared to its previous guidance of between $1.00 and $1.25 per share.

Actual results in 2017 may differ from present expectations and could be impacted by a number of factors including, among others, the risk factors disclosed in "Risk Factors" and "Forward-Looking Statements" in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the most recent fiscal year.

* Not meaningful

(1) The Company recognizes sales of railcars from the lease fleet which have been owned by the lease fleet for one year or less as revenue. Sales of railcars from the lease fleet which have been owned by the lease fleet for more than one year are recognized as a net gain or loss from the disposal of a long-term asset.

(2) Depreciation, maintenance and compliance, and rent expense are components of operating profit. Amortization of deferred profit on railcars sold from the Rail Group to the Leasing Group is included in the operating profit of the Leasing Group resulting in the recognition of depreciation expense based on the Company's original manufacturing cost of the railcars. Interest expense is not a component of operating profit and includes the effect of hedges.

Reconciliation of EBITDA

(in millions)
(unaudited)

“EBITDA” is defined as net income 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 consolidated 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. However, the EBITDA measure presented in this press release may not always be comparable to similarly titled measures by other companies due to differences in the components of the calculation.
