GATX Corporation Reports 2012 Fourth Quarter and Full-Year Results

CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan. 24, 2013-- GATX Corporation (NYSE:GMT) today reported 2012 fourth quarter net income of $29.7 million or $.62 per diluted share, compared to net income of $31.6 million or $.67 per diluted share in the fourth quarter of 2011. The 2012 and 2011 fourth quarter results include benefits from Tax Adjustments and Other Items of $2.8 million or $.06 per diluted share and $1.9 million or $.05 per diluted share, respectively.

Net income for the full-year 2012 was $137.3 million or $2.88 per diluted share, compared to net income of $110.8 million or $2.35 per diluted share in the prior year. The 2012 and 2011 results include benefits from Tax Adjustments and Other Items of $3.5 million or $.07 per diluted share and $15.8 million or $.34 per diluted share, respectively.

Details related to the Tax Adjustments and Other Items are provided in the attached Supplemental Information. Quarterly segment data, presented in the new segment and income statement format, is posted in the Investor Relations section of www.gatx.com.

Brian A. Kenney, president and chief executive officer of GATX, said, “The North American rail market remains strong due to unprecedented demand for tank cars. In 2012, we capitalized on the favorable market conditions by increasing lease rates while successfully stretching lease terms. In the fourth quarter, the renewal rate change of GATX’s Lease Price Index (“LPI”) was a positive 32.3% and the average renewal term for cars in the LPI was 65 months. On a full-year basis, the renewal rate change of the LPI was a positive 25.6% and the average renewal term was 60 months. Additionally, fleet utilization approximated 98% and our renewal success rate averaged over 80% for the year. We also used the strong market to optimize our fleet by selling railcars, generating improved asset remarketing income in Rail North America.

“Although the European freight car market remains weak, GATX’s European tank car fleet experienced higher lease rates and strong utilization throughout 2012. Tank car investment opportunities were robust, as our total European investment reached nearly $200 million, a record level for GATX in this market. We also entered the Indian railcar leasing market during the year with the purchase of railcars that began to deliver at the end of 2012.”

Mr. Kenney continued, “Looking to the year ahead, we expect continued strength in the North American chemical and petroleum markets to provide a favorable operating environment for tank car leasing, while demand across certain freight car types is expected to remain weak. The number of cars scheduled for maintenance, especially tank car compliance work, will increase in 2013, and thus our maintenance costs will increase materially over 2012 levels. Internationally, demand in the European tank car market appears to be moderating, so we will focus on maintaining high utilization and upgrading our fleet while pursuing additional investment opportunities in India and other emerging rail markets.

“We anticipate that American Steamship Company’s (“ASC’s”) 2013 tonnage will be down somewhat from the prior year, and record low water levels on the Great Lakes will hamper operating conditions. Within the Portfolio Management segment, the Rolls-Royce and Partners Finance affiliates are expected to continue their strong performance, while our ocean-going marine investments will likely have continued weak results. Based on these factors, we expect full-year 2013 EPS to be in the range of $3.10 to $3.20 per diluted share.”

Mr. Kenney concluded, “Over the last few years, we believe GATX has made significant cost-advantaged investments and positioned its fleet to produce record earnings and cash flow. Reaching that goal remains our primary focus.”

RAIL NORTH AMERICA

Rail North America segment profit was $59.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2012, compared to $55.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2011. The 2011 fourth quarter results include the pre-tax benefit from Other Items of $5.5 million. The improvement in segment profit was driven by higher lease rates and increased asset remarketing income; in particular an $11 million gain associated with a residual value sharing transaction. This was partially offset by increased maintenance costs, due to higher repair costs and more railroad repairs, and decreased scrapping gains due to fewer scrapped cars at lower scrap rates.

Rail North America reported segment profit of $209.3 million in 2012, compared to $172.7 million in 2011. Again, the 2011 results include the pre-tax benefit from Other Items of $5.5 million. The increase in segment profit was driven by higher lease rates, increased asset remarketing income and lower maintenance costs resulting from our high renewal success rate. The increase in segment profit was partially offset by lower scrapping gains due to fewer railcars scrapped at lower scrap rates.

At December 31, 2012, Rail North America’s wholly-owned fleet totaled approximately 110,000 cars. Fleet utilization was 97.9%, compared to 98.2% at the end of the third quarter and at 2011 year end.

During the fourth quarter of 2012 the GATX Lease Price Index (“LPI”), a weighted average lease renewal rate for a group of railcars representative of the Rail North American fleet, increased 32.3% over the weighted average expiring lease rate. This compares to a 26.4% increase in the prior quarter and a 13.2% increase in the fourth quarter 2011. The average lease renewal term for cars included in the LPI during the fourth quarter was 65 months, up from 59 months in the third quarter and 48 months in the fourth quarter of 2011. For the full-year 2012 the LPI increased 25.6% and railcars in the LPI had an average renewal term of 60 months, compared to an increase of 6.9% and average renewal term of 45 months in 2011. Investment volume in 2012 at Rail North America totaled nearly $466 million.

RAIL INTERNATIONAL

Rail International segment profit was $10.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2012, compared to $6.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2011. The 2012 and 2011 fourth quarter results include the negative pre-tax impact from Other Items of $2.0 million and $7.5 million, respectively.

Rail International reported segment profit of $32.7 million in 2012, compared to $60.7 million in 2011. The 2012 and 2011 results include the negative pre-tax impact from Other Items of $22.9 million and the pre-tax benefit from Other Items of $3.5 million, respectively. The changes in full-year and quarterly segment profit were primarily driven by activities in Europe, including higher legal fees and increased depreciation expense associated with new investments, partially offset by more railcars on lease at higher lease rates.

Within Rail International, the wholly-owned tank car fleet in Europe totaled approximately 22,000 cars and utilization was 95.1%, compared to 96.6% at the end of the third quarter and 97.1% at 2011 year end. Investment volume in 2012 at Rail International was over $200 million, primarily for new tank cars in Europe.

Additional current and historical fleet and operating data as well as macroeconomic data related to Rail North America’s and Rail International’s business can be found on the last page of this press release.

AMERICAN STEAMSHIP COMPANY

American Steamship Company (“ASC”) reported segment profit of $8.2 million in the fourth quarter 2012 compared to $9.4 million in the fourth quarter 2011. The decline in segment profit was due to lower volume carried as a result of low water levels on the Great Lakes.

Segment profit for 2012 was $37.5 million compared to $27.3 million in 2011. The increase in segment profit was the result of more tonnage moved at higher rates and the absence of costs associated with a work stoppage in 2011. ASC operated 14 of its 18 vessels, including the Articulated Tug Barge (“ATB”), during the sailing season and transported 29.7 million net tons of cargo compared to 28.4 million net tons carried in the prior year.

PORTFOLIO MANAGEMENT

Portfolio Management reported a segment loss of $1.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2012 compared to segment profit of $16.6 million in the prior year period. The decline in segment profit was primarily due to a $14.8 million loss recognized in the fourth quarter of 2012 associated with the disposition of GATX’s interest in Enerven Compression, LLC, a joint venture that was engaged in leasing and maintaining assets in the natural gas compression market.

For full-year 2012, Portfolio Management reported segment profit of $50.2 million compared to $47.6 million in 2011. Increased asset remarketing activity contributed to the improvement in segment profit.

The Portfolio Management segment currently consists of approximately $797.4 million of owned assets and third-party managed portfolios totaling approximately $143.2 million.
