  • Year-to-date investment of $127 million in leasing capital expenditures, net of railcar sales, predominantly for growth
  • Total committed liquidity of $709 million as of June 30, 2020
    • Expanded lease fleet borrowings by $225 million subsequent to quarter-end
    • Expects $303 million in federal income tax refunds in 2020, and an additional $150 million in 2021, as a result of utilizing loss carryback provisions included in the CARES Act
  • Annualized cost savings of $70 million underway, encompassing both structural and cyclical savings
  • Year-to-date returns to shareholders of $82 million through dividends and share repurchases

“During the second quarter, Trinity managed through significant headwinds related to the COVID-19 pandemic and economic fallout while executing on optimization initiatives to support the transition of our rail-focused strategy,” said Jean Savage, Trinity Industries CEO and President. “Our first priority is the safety of our employees, and we have taken actions designed to prevent community spread of the virus within our manufacturing facilities and administrative offices while ensuring business continuity. Our people have risen to the occasion with a spirit of resilience and collaboration – completing significant milestones in the streamlining of our organization structure and further positioning Trinity’s rail-platform for improved financial performance.”

“Our businesses are facing challenging market dynamics resulting from the historic decline in railcar loadings and the resulting underutilized railcars in North America. Commercially, our primary focus is to maintain the utilization of our lease fleet, then to meet customer demand for newly manufactured railcars as appropriate. Our lease fleet utilization is holding around 95%, albeit with pricing pressure on lease rates, and our production capacity for 2020 railcar deliveries is essentially sold. The timeline for a recovery in the rail sector remains unclear as increasing COVID-19 cases in the U.S. potentially threaten the recent improvement in economic and rail market activity. However, we are seeing a strong increase in railcar inquiries relative to last quarter from strategic buyers and large leasing customers, and we expect a number of these will turn to orders or lease contracts in the near term.”

“Trinity has realigned its organization from the previous holding company structure, to an operating model centrally focused on our customers’ business needs. As we work through the process flows for various production and service functions, we are establishing additional structural savings goals that will be part of our near-term focus. We are also prepared to take further actions to reduce our cost structure and manufacturing footprint in the event of a prolonged railcar down cycle.”

Ms. Savage concluded, “I am pleased Trinity’s rail platform continues to display its resiliency with strong cash flow generation stemming from the platform synergies. Leased railcar assets remain attractive to the capital markets, and we’ve had continued success in financing new railcar portfolios and selling railcars to our institutional investor partners in mutually-beneficial transactions. Trinity delivered second quarter cash flow from operations of $154 million, made a net investment of $94 million in our leasing and manufacturing businesses, and returned $24 million to shareholders in the form of dividends – highlighting again that Trinity’s platform enables meaningful investment in the business for growth while returning substantial capital to shareholders. Our liquidity stayed strong at $709 million at quarter end, and has been further enhanced by the recent completion of the $225 million rail financing and amendments to our corporate revolver in the month of July. We are committed to delivering long-term shareholder value, and Trinity is taking the necessary steps to optimize our business and position the Company for an acceleration in financial performance.”

Additional Business Items

Income Tax Adjustments

  • As a result of the reinstatement of the tax-loss carryback provisions under the CARES Act, the Company recognized an additional tax benefit in the second quarter of $11.3 million, or $0.10 per common diluted share. The CARES Act includes loss carryback provisions that will allow the Company to utilize tax losses generated in recent years and our expectations for the current year to recover taxes paid for the 2013-2015 tax years, which were years of elevated Company performance. The associated income tax losses were primarily due to accelerated tax depreciation associated with our investment in the lease fleet.
  • The Company’s tax rate was a benefit of 20.0% for the quarter and a benefit of 63.6% for the year. These rates differed from the U.S. statutory rate primarily as a result of the CARES Act, offset by the portion of the non-cash impairment charge that is not tax-effected because it is related to the noncontrolling interest.
  • The $73.9 million net increase in our income tax receivable during the quarter primarily reflects additional 2020 tax losses accrued through June 30, 2020 that will be utilized to recover taxes paid in 2015, after the Company files its 2020 tax return in the fall of 2021.

Non-Cash Impairment of Small Cube Covered Hopper Railcars

  • During the second quarter, the oil and gas proppants (or “frac sand”) industry continued to experience economic pressure created by low oil prices, reduced fracking activity, and the ongoing economic impact of COVID-19. The recent significant price declines in the crude oil market, as well as lower demand for certain commodities, have resulted in a decline in customer demand for certain types of railcars. Given these factors and the pressure on the oil and gas industry to maintain a low cost structure, fracking operations, particularly those located in the Permian Basin, have increasingly shifted away from the use of Northern White sand and towards the use of in-basin sand. Consequently, the cash flows and profitability of the frac sand industry continued to decline during the second quarter. As a result, certain of the Leasing Group's small cube covered hopper customers requested rent relief and, in a number of cases, filed for bankruptcy in the second quarter. These events led us to evaluate our small cube covered hopper railcars for potential impairment. As a result of our analysis, we recorded a pre-tax non-cash impairment charge of $369.4 million, or approximately $1.86 per adjusted diluted share, during the second quarter ended June 30, 2020. The impairment charge reflects the Company's estimates of the fair value of the assets based upon anticipated future net cash flows, which considered the depressed long-term market outlook for small cube covered hoppers, continued pressure on lease rates and utilization, and the salvage value of the assets. This impairment charge does not affect Trinity's compliance with any existing debt covenants.

Liquidity and Capital Source Updates

  • In July 2020, Trinity Rail Leasing 2017 LLC, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company, issued $225.0 million of additional promissory notes through its existing loan agreement. The additional promissory notes increased the aggregate amount of such promissory notes outstanding as of July 17, 2020 to $831.8 million. The promissory notes bear interest at LIBOR plus 1.50%. Net proceeds received from the transaction will be used to repay borrowings under TILC's secured warehouse credit facility and under the Company’s revolving credit facility, and for general corporate purposes.
  • In July 2020, we amended our revolving credit facility to increase the maximum leverage ratio through December 31, 2021 to provide near-term covenant flexibility.
  • In addition to the $303 million of anticipated income tax refunds related to the 2018 and 2019 expected carryback claims, the Company also expects to receive anticipated income tax refunds of approximately $150 million in 2021 as a result of the expected tax losses in 2020, subject to the Company’s actual performance in the current year. A portion of this benefit was previously accrued and recognized in the Company’s first quarter financials.

Cost Optimization

  • Trinity currently anticipates that the structural and cyclical administrative cost reductions completed and identified as of the date of this release will generate approximately $70 million in future annualized cost savings.

    • These activities achieve and exceed the previously provided SE&A and other administrative cost reductions goal of $25 million to $30 million for 2020.
  • In the first and second quarter, in connection with the Company's continued assessment of future needs to support our rail-focused strategy and to optimize the performance of the business, the Company recognized pre-tax restructuring charges of $5.8 million, primarily from the write-down of our corporate headquarters campus and employee transition costs, partially offset by a net gain on the disposition of a non-operating facility and certain related assets.
  • As the Company continues to reposition the organization to better support Trinity's rail-focused strategy and drive innovation and platform efficiency, we anticipate identifying further cost savings opportunities, which could lead to additional restructuring charges.
  • In connection with the Company's previously communicated pension termination plan, the plan is now expected to be fully settled by the end of 2020. The Company expects to recognize a pre-tax pension settlement charge in the fourth quarter of 2020 totaling between $155 million to $185 million, which includes the non-cash charge for the recognition of all pre-tax actuarial losses accumulated in Accumulated Other Comprehensive Loss, and a potential additional cash contribution that is not expected to exceed $15 million to settle all of the Pension Plan's obligations.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We have included financial measures compiled in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") and certain non-GAAP measures in this earnings press release to provide management and investors with additional information regarding our financial results. Non-GAAP measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for our reporting results prepared in accordance with GAAP and, as calculated, may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures for other companies. For each non-GAAP financial measure, a reconciliation to the most comparable GAAP measure has been included in the accompanying tables. When forward-looking non-GAAP measures are provided, quantitative reconciliations to the most directly comparable GAAP measures are not provided because management cannot, without unreasonable effort, predict the timing and amounts of certain items included in the computations of each of these measures. These factors include, but are not limited to: the product mix of expected railcar deliveries; the timing and amount of significant transactions and investments, such as railcar sales from the lease fleet, capital expenditures, and returns of capital to shareholders; and the amount and timing of certain other items outside the normal course of our core business operations, such as restructuring activities and pension plan termination charges.

Trinity is required to utilize the two-class method of calculating earnings per share ("EPS") as a result of unvested restricted shares that have non-forfeitable rights to dividends and are, therefore, considered to be participating securities. The calculation of EPS using the two-class method excludes income attributable to these participating securities from the numerator and excludes the dilutive impact of those shares from the denominator; therefore, the two-class method may result in a lower EPS than is calculated from the face of the income statement. There were no restricted shares and stock options included in the computation of diluted EPS for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020 as we incurred a loss for these periods, and any effect on loss per common share would have been antidilutive.

(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) Includes revenues associated with sales-type leases of $32.3 million and $34.2 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2019, respectively.

(3) Operating profit includes: depreciation; maintenance and compliance; rent; and selling, engineering, and administrative expenses. Amortization of deferred profit on railcars sold from the Rail Products 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.

(4) Effective January 1, 2020, we revised the estimated useful lives and salvage values of certain railcar types in our lease fleet. This change in estimate resulted in a decrease in depreciation expense in the three and six months ended June 30, 2020 of approximately $7.7 million and $15.4 million, respectively. This decrease was partially offset by higher depreciation associated with growth in the lease fleet.

(5) As a result of the impairment of long-lived assets related to our small cube covered hopper railcars recorded in the second quarter of 2020, our future quarterly depreciation expense will decrease approximately $3.5 million.

Reconciliations of Non-GAAP Measures

Adjusted Operating Results

We have supplemented the presentation of our reported GAAP operating profit (loss), interest expense, net, provision (benefit) for income taxes, income (loss) from continuing operations, net income (loss) attributable to Trinity Industries, Inc., diluted weighted average shares outstanding and diluted income (loss) from continuing operations per common share attributable to Trinity Industries, Inc. with non-GAAP measures that adjust the GAAP measures to exclude the impact of restructuring activities, impairment of long-lived assets, early redemption of debt, the income tax effects of the CARES Act and certain other non-recurring transactions or events (as applicable).These non-GAAP measures are derived from amounts included in our GAAP financial statements and are reconciled to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures in the tables below. Management believes that these measures are useful to both management and investors for analyzing the performance of our business without the impact of certain non-recurring items. Non-GAAP measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for our reporting results prepared in accordance with GAAP and, as calculated, may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures for other companies.

(1) Excludes $81.3 million of non-cash impairment of long-lived asset charges associated with the noncontrolling interest.

(2) The effective tax rate for impairment of long-lived assets, restructuring activities, and the early redemption of debt is before consideration of the CARES Act.

(3) Represents the portion of the non-cash impairment of long-lived asset charge attributable to the noncontrolling interest, for which Trinity does not provide income taxes.

(4) GAAP diluted weighted average shares outstanding excludes 1.4 million and 1.7 million shares for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020, respectively, since the Company was in a net loss position for those periods. When adjusting for the items above, these shares become dilutive.

Free Cash Flow

Free Cash Flow before Capital expenditures – leasing ("Free Cash Flow") is a non-GAAP financial measure and is defined as net cash provided by operating activities from continuing operations as computed in accordance with GAAP, plus cash proceeds from sales of leased railcars owned more than one year at the time of sale, less cash payments for manufacturing capital expenditures and dividends. We believe Free Cash Flow is useful to both management and investors as it provides a relevant measure of liquidity and a useful basis for assessing our ability to fund our operations and repay our debt. Free Cash Flow is reconciled to net cash provided by operating activities from continuing operations, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, in the following table. Non-GAAP measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for our reporting results prepared in accordance with GAAP and, as calculated, may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures for other companies.

EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA

“EBITDA” is defined as income (loss) from continuing operations plus interest expense, income taxes, and depreciation and amortization expense. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as EBITDA plus non-cash impairment of long-lived assets and restructuring activities. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are non-GAAP financial measures; however, the amounts included in these calculations are derived from amounts included in our GAAP financial statements. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are reconciled to net income (loss), the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, in the following table. This information is provided to assist management and investors in making meaningful comparisons of our operating performance between periods. We believe EBITDA is a useful measure for analyzing the performance of our business. We also believe that EBITDA is commonly reported and widely used by investors and other interested parties as a measure of a company’s operating performance and debt servicing ability because it assists in comparing performance on a consistent basis without regard to capital structure, depreciation or amortization (which can vary significantly depending on many factors). EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as alternatives to net income as indicators of our operating performance, or as alternatives to operating cash flows as measures of liquidity. Non-GAAP measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for our reporting results prepared in accordance with GAAP and, as calculated, may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures for other companies.
