Second Quarter 2018 Consolidated Highlights Compared with Second Quarter 2017

  • Operating revenues increased 10.1% to $595.0 million from $540.4 million.
  • Reported operating income increased 3.4% to $103.1 million; Adjusted operating income increased 1.1% to $107.0 million.(1)
  • Reported diluted earnings per common share (EPS) decreased 1.4% to $0.73 with 60.9 million weighted average shares outstanding, compared with reported diluted EPS in the second quarter of 2017 of $0.74 with 62.4 million weighted average shares outstanding; Adjusted diluted EPS increased 17.5% to $0.94.(1)
  • G&W repurchased approximately 1.9 million shares of its Class A Common Stock for $134.9 million during the second quarter of 2018.

Jack Hellmann, Chairman, President and CEO of G&W, commented, “Our reported financial results for the second quarter of 2018 of $0.73 per diluted share were generally consistent with the second quarter of 2017, primarily because of our previously announced U.K. restructuring charges. Our adjusted diluted EPS of $0.94 for the second quarter of 2018 were at the high end of our outlook as business conditions continued to improve in each of our three geographies, led by North America. Our same railroad carloads increased 8% in North America with particular strength in coal, steel and minerals and stone traffic. While our operating leverage in North America during the quarter was adversely impacted by several variables including the mix of business, the lag in fuel surcharge recovery, and legal fees associated with an arbitration proceeding, we expect to see our customarily strong operating leverage for the remainder of 2018 based on our current volume outlook.”

“In Australia, our second quarter results were as expected with particular growth in our spot coal traffic due to the early delivery of a new train set. In the UK/Europe, we successfully initiated our restructuring activities and achieved financial results that were ahead of our expectations.”

“Our business outlook for the remainder of 2018 remains promising thanks to growing customer demand for rail shipments across most commodity groups, particularly in North America. In addition, we have refinanced our senior credit facility with improved terms through 2023, we have more than $600 million of capacity under our revolving credit facility, and we continue to evaluate investment opportunities in multiple markets including the opportunistic purchase of our own shares.”

June 30,
2018     2017
Net cash provided by operating activities $ 231.3 $ 224.3
Allocation of adjusted cash flow to noncontrolling interest(a) (13.0 ) (18.7 )

(a)   Allocation of adjusted cash flow to noncontrolling interest (Macquarie Infrastructure and Real Assets' (MIRA's) 48.9% equity ownership of G&W Australia Holdings LP (GWA) since December 1, 2016) is calculated as 48.9% of the total of (i) cash flow provided by operating activities of G&W’s Australian Operations, less (ii) net purchases of property and equipment of G&W’s Australian Operations. The timing and amount of actual distributions, if any, from GWA to G&W and MIRA made in any given period will vary and could differ materially from the amounts presented. There were A$40.0 million (or $30.0 million at the average exchange rate in June 2018) of such distributions made for the six months ended June 30, 2018, of which $15.3 million and $14.9 million was distributed to G&W and MIRA, respectively, and no such distributions were made for the six months ended June 30, 2017. G&W expressly disclaims any direct correlation between the allocation of adjusted cash flow to noncontrolling interest and actual distributions made in any given period.
(b) Core capital expenditures represent purchases of property and equipment as presented on the Statement of Cash Flows less grant proceeds from outside parties, insurance proceeds for the replacement of assets and proceeds from disposition of property and equipment, each of which as presented on the Statement of Cash Flows, less new business investments and grant funded projects.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This earnings release contains references to adjusted operating income, adjusted operating ratio, adjusted operating expenses, adjusted net income attributable to G&W, adjusted diluted earnings per common share (EPS) and the adjusted free cash flow measures of adjusted net cash provided by operating activities attributable to G&W, adjusted free cash flow attributable to G&W and adjusted free cash flow attributable to G&W before new business investments and grant funded projects, which are “non-GAAP financial measures” as this term is defined in Item 10(e) of Regulation S-K under the Securities Act of 1933 and the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and Regulation G under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. In accordance with these rules, G&W has reconciled these non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable U.S. GAAP measures.

Management views these non-GAAP financial measures as important measures of G&W’s operating performance or, in the case of the adjusted free cash flow measures, a useful indicator of cash flow that may be available for discretionary use by G&W. Management also views these non-GAAP financial measures as a way to assess comparability between periods. Key limitations of the adjusted free cash flow measures include the assumptions that G&W will be able to refinance its existing debt when it matures and meet other cash flow obligations from financing activities, such as principal payments on debt.

These non-GAAP financial measures are not intended to represent, and should not be considered more meaningful than, or as an alternative to, their most directly comparable GAAP measures. These non-GAAP financial measures may be different from similarly-titled non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies.

The following tables set forth reconciliations of each of these non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP measure ($ in millions, except per share amounts).

(a)   Allocation of adjusted cash flow to noncontrolling interest (Macquarie Infrastructure and Real Assets' (MIRA's) 48.9% equity ownership of G&W Australia Holdings LP (GWA) since December 1, 2016) is calculated as 48.9% of the total of (i) cash flow provided by operating activities of G&W’s Australian Operations, less (ii) net purchases of property and equipment of G&W’s Australian Operations. The timing and amount of actual distributions, if any, from GWA to G&W and MIRA made in any given period will vary and could differ materially from the amounts presented. There were A$40.0 million (or $30.0 million at the average exchange rate in June 2018) of such distributions made for the six months ended June 30, 2018, of which $15.3 million and $14.9 million was distributed to G&W and MIRA, respectively, and no such distributions were made for the six months ended June 30, 2017. G&W expressly disclaims any direct correlation between the allocation of adjusted cash flow to noncontrolling interest and actual distributions made in any given period.
