  • U.S. Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals panel rules unanimously the Company did not violate the False Claims Act, reversing the District Court's $682.4 million judgment and rendering judgment in favor of the Company

Consolidated Results

Trinity Industries, Inc. reported net income attributable to Trinity stockholders of $66.9 million, or $0.43 per common diluted share, for the third quarter ended September 30, 2017. Net income for the same quarter of 2016 was $84.2 million, or $0.55 per common diluted share. Revenues for the third quarter of 2017 totaled $973.6 million compared to revenues of $1.1 billion for the same quarter of 2016.

“Our financial results for the third quarter were better than we expected, primarily due to the performance of our railcar leasing business,” said Timothy R. Wallace, Trinity’s Chairman, CEO and President. “Profit for the railcar leasing business increased 50% year-over-year, resulting from solid operating results and a significant volume of leased railcar sales. In general, the market environment for many of our businesses remains highly challenging.”

Mr. Wallace continued, “On September 29th, the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit ruled favorably in the Company’s federal False Claims Act litigation, issuing a unanimous opinion. The ruling is a reflection on Trinity’s strong character, our confidence in our products and business practices, and, most importantly, the quality of our people.”

Business Group Results

In the third quarter of 2017, the Rail Group reported revenues of $492.4 million compared to revenues of $720.8 million in the third quarter of 2016. Operating profit and profit margin for the Rail Group were $50.6 million and 10.3% in the third quarter of 2017 compared to $103.6 million and 14.4% in the third quarter of 2016. The decreases in revenues and operating profit were primarily due to significantly lower railcar deliveries. The Rail Group delivered 4,420 railcars and received orders for 3,045 railcars during the third quarter of 2017 compared to 6,595 and 1,260 railcars, respectively, in the same quarter last year. The Rail Group had a backlog of $2.4 billion as of September 30, 2017, representing 25,555 railcars, compared to a backlog of $2.7 billion as of June 30, 2017, representing 27,580 railcars. The ending backlog figures for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2017 reflect the removal of 650 railcars and 1,140 railcars, respectively, that have not been netted against orders. The adjustment for the three months ended September 30, 2017 resulted from an order termination negotiated and agreed to with a customer in October 2017. The Company will receive compensation for the termination upon finalization of documents and expects to record a cancellation fee during the fourth quarter of 2017.

The Railcar Leasing and Management Services Group (“Leasing Group”) reported revenues and operating profit of $275.1 million and $120.6 million, respectively, in the third quarter of 2017, an increase of 58.4% and 49.8%, respectively, compared to the same quarter of 2016. The increases in revenues and operating profit reflect higher leased railcar sales and asset management advisory fees. The increase in operating profit was partially offset by an increase in fleet maintenance and compliance expenses.

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 $154.5 million and $34.4 million, respectively, for the third quarter of 2017 compared with no sales in the third quarter of 2016. Supplemental information for the Leasing Group is provided in the accompanying tables.

The Inland Barge Group reported revenues of $28.1 million in the third quarter of 2017 compared to revenues of $98.9 million in the third quarter of 2016. Operating loss for this Group was $0.7 million in the third quarter of 2017 compared to a profit of $11.7 million in the third 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. The Inland Barge Group received orders of $63.4 million during the quarter and, as of September 30, 2017, had a backlog of $126.0 million compared to a backlog of $90.7 million as of June 30, 2017.

The Energy Equipment Group reported revenues of $246.2 million in the third quarter of 2017 compared to revenues of $241.7 million in the same quarter of 2016. Operating profit and profit margin for this Group were $26.3 million and 10.7% compared to $31.2 million and 12.9% in the same quarter last year. An increase in volumes in the Group's wind towers and utility structures product lines was partially offset by lower delivery volumes in the Group's other product lines, primarily storage and distribution containers and tank heads product lines. The backlog for structural wind towers as of September 30, 2017 was $847.3 million compared to a backlog of $945.4 million as of June 30, 2017.

The Construction Products Group reported revenues of $131.9 million in the third quarter of 2017 compared to revenues of $139.8 million in the third quarter of 2016. Operating profit and profit margin were $16.9 million and 12.8% in the third quarter of 2017 compared to $23.8 million and 17.0% in the same quarter last year. The decreases in revenues and operating profit compared to the same quarter last year were primarily due to lower volumes in our highway products and construction aggregates businesses, partially offset by higher volumes in the Group's other product lines due to the acquisition of a trench shoring business during the quarter. In addition, in August 2017, one of the Company's highway products plants experienced an equipment failure that reduced operating profit by approximately $2.0 million.

Cash and Liquidity

At September 30, 2017, the Company had cash, cash equivalents, and short-term marketable securities of $1.0 billion. When combined with capacity under committed credit facilities, the Company had approximately $2.4 billion of available liquidity at the end of the third quarter.

Share Repurchase

Year to date through September 30, 2017, 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. There were no share repurchases during the third quarter of 2017.

Highway Products Litigation

On September 29, 2017, a panel of the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit ("Fifth Circuit") unanimously ruled that the Company did not violate the federal False Claims Act, reversing a June 9, 2015 $682.4 million judgment (the "Judgment") entered against Trinity Industries, Inc. and Trinity Highway Products, LLC and rendering judgment in favor of the Company. The Judgment was entered against the Company following an October 2014 jury trial in United States District Court for the Eastern District of Texas, Marshall Division. The Company is monitoring any additional appellate steps that may be taken by plaintiff in this matter.

Earnings Guidance

Fourth Quarter 2017

For the fourth quarter of 2017, the Company anticipates earnings of between $0.35 and $0.45 per common diluted share. This results in full year 2017 earnings guidance of between $1.41 and $1.51 per share compared to its previous guidance of between $1.10 and $1.30 per share. The Company's earnings guidance compares to fourth quarter and full year 2016 earnings per common diluted share of $0.44 and $2.25, respectively.

The Company's fourth quarter and full year 2017 guidance includes approximately $0.07 per share of compensation related to the removal of 650 tank railcars from backlog as discussed in the Business Group Results. The full year 2017 guidance also includes revised expectations for sales of leased railcars to between $425 million and $475 million compared to the Company's previous guidance of between $300 million and $350 million.

Full Year 2018

For the full year 2018, the Company anticipates earnings of between $0.90 and $1.25 per common diluted share.

At this time, the Rail Group expects full year 2018 deliveries of approximately 20,000 railcars, of which approximately 65% was in backlog at the end of the third quarter, compared to expected deliveries of 18,000 railcars in 2017.

The Company's earnings guidance for 2018 also includes expected sales of leased railcars of between $250 million and $350 million.

Actual results in 2017 and 2018 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.
