MIAMI--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Ryder System, Inc. (NYSE: R), a leader in commercial fleet management , dedicated transportation , and supply chain solutions, today reported it exceeded its initial full-year outlook for 2018, driven by record revenue growth. Total revenue and operating revenue grew across all three business segments reflecting new business and higher volumes. Full-year GAAP EPS was $5.21 versus $14.90 in the prior year, reflecting the one-time benefit of tax reform in the prior year. Full-year comparable EPS, which management believes is more reflective of ongoing performance, was up 28% to $5.79. In the fourth quarter, GAAP EPS was $2.06 versus $12.12 in the prior year, reflecting the one-time benefit of tax reform in the prior year. Comparable EPS was up 33% to a record $1.82.

Results for the three months ended December 31 were as follows:

DTS $ 363 284 28 % $ 233 198 18 %
SCS $ 670 532 26 % $ 490 411 19 %

Commenting on the company's results, Ryder Chairman and CEO Robert Sanchez said, “In the fourth quarter, we delivered year-over-year comparable earnings per share growth, which was in line with our expectations. We are pleased with this quarter's comparable pre-tax earnings improvement of 16%, which was driven by double-digit revenue growth in all three of our business units and the benefit of cost actions taken earlier in the year. This quarter's pre-tax earnings growth included used vehicle sales and depreciation headwinds of $16 million (15% of prior-year comparable pre-tax earnings). During the quarter, used vehicle prices increased modestly, while our inventory remained within our target range. In our commercial rental business, we saw a 19% revenue increase reflecting strong rental demand primarily supporting our growing lease customer base.

"Looking back to the full year of 2018, we achieved record contractual sales which allowed us to beat revenue growth targets in all three business segments and positions us well for continued growth in 2019. Additionally, we exceeded our initial comparable earnings forecast for the year and realized earnings growth in all business segments. We achieved record organic lease fleet growth of 9,600 vehicles, our seventh consecutive year of growth, as we continue to successfully win customers that are new to outsourcing and expand with current accounts. We also delivered on cost reduction targets through our new zero-based budgeting process.

“In addition, we executed a customer agreement for 1,000 commercial electric trucks - the largest deal of its kind in the United States. We recently announced our new e-commerce fulfillment solution enabling manufacturers to go direct to online consumers. We also significantly expanded our supply chain capabilities in final-mile delivery for big-and-bulky goods and launched COOP by Ryder™, the first-of-its-kind commercial truck sharing platform. These capabilities position Ryder well for long-term profitable revenue growth in a changing transportation environment."

Fourth Quarter Business Segment Operating Results

Fleet Management Solutions

In the Fleet Management Solutions (FMS) business segment, total revenue was $1.38 billion, up 11% compared with $1.24 billion in the year-earlier period. FMS operating revenue (a non-GAAP measure excluding fuel) was $1.17 billion, up 10% from the year-earlier period. Ryder ChoiceLease™ (lease) revenue increased 8%, reflecting a larger average fleet size and higher prices on replacement vehicles. The lease fleet increased organically by 9,600 vehicles year-to-date reflecting a 7% increase for a total of 149,300 vehicles. Commercial rental revenue grew 19% from the year-earlier period due to higher demand and pricing. Fuel services revenue increased 16%, primarily reflecting higher fuel costs passed through to customers.

FMS earnings before tax were $106.5 million, up 16% compared with $91.8 million in the same period of 2017, reflecting growing ChoiceLease and commercial rental. Lease results benefited from fleet growth. Commercial rental performance improved due to stronger demand as well as higher pricing. Rental power fleet utilization was 81.6% for the fourth quarter, up 40 basis points from the year-earlier period. Lease and rental performance were partially offset by higher depreciation of $16.3 million due to vehicle residual-value changes and accelerated depreciation. Used vehicle results were in line with the prior year. FMS earnings before tax as a percentage of FMS total revenue and FMS operating revenue (a non-GAAP measure) were 7.7% and 9.1%, respectively, up 30 and 40 basis points from the prior year.

Dedicated Transportation Solutions

In the Dedicated Transportation Solutions (DTS) business segment, total revenue was up 28% to $363 million and DTS operating revenue (a non-GAAP measure excluding fuel and subcontracted transportation) was $233 million, up 18% compared with the year-earlier period. DTS total and operating revenue growth reflect new business and increased volumes.

DTS earnings before tax of $15.8 million increased 2% compared with $15.5 million in 2017, due to revenue growth, partially offset by continued higher startup costs on a customer account. DTS earnings before tax as a percentage of DTS total revenue and operating revenue (a non-GAAP measure) were 4.4% and 6.8%, respectively, down 110 and 100 basis points from the year-earlier period.

Supply Chain Solutions

In the Supply Chain Solutions (SCS) business segment, total revenue was up 26% to $670 million and operating revenue (a non-GAAP measure excluding fuel and subcontracted transportation) was up 19% to $490 million compared with the year-earlier period. SCS operating revenue growth largely reflects increased volumes, new business, and higher pricing. Total and operating revenue growth also reflects the acquisition of MXD Group, Inc. (MXD), now re-branded as Ryder Last Mile, during the second quarter.

SCS earnings before tax of $32.3 million increased 18% in the fourth quarter of 2018 compared with $27.4 million in 2017, driven by revenue growth. SCS earnings before tax as a percentage of SCS total revenue and operating revenue (a non-GAAP measure) were 4.8% and 6.6%, respectively, down 30 and 10 basis points from the prior year.

Corporate Financial Information

Central Support Services

Central Support Services (CSS) are overhead costs incurred to support all business segments and product lines. Most CSS costs are allocated to the business segments. In the fourth quarter of 2018, unallocated CSS costs were $15 million, unchanged from the year-earlier period.

Income Taxes

The company’s effective income tax rate from continuing operations for the fourth quarter of 2018 was 2.4% compared to a substantial benefit in the year earlier period, which reflected the impact of tax reform. In the current year, the effective income tax rate was impacted by a lower federal tax rate, a lower effective state tax rate and, an adjustment of $14 million or $0.27 per diluted share of the prior provisional estimate related to tax reform. During the fourth quarter, we also corrected certain deferred income taxes, recognizing a benefit of $6 million or $0.11 per diluted share. Excluding these items, the company’s comparable effective income tax rate from continuing operations for the fourth quarter of 2018 decreased to 20.5% compared to 30.4% in the year earlier period, primarily due to a lower federal tax rate as a result of tax reform and a lower effective state tax rate.

Additional Items Excluded from Segment and Comparable Earnings

Non-operating components of pension costs are excluded from both segment earnings before tax and comparable earnings (a non-GAAP measure) to more accurately reflect the operating performance of the business. Non-operating pension costs totaled $4.3 million ($3.2 million after tax) or $0.06 per diluted share in the fourth quarter of 2018, compared with $6.9 million ($4.0 million after tax) or $0.07 per diluted share in the year-earlier period.

Fourth quarter 2018 results include restructuring and other, net charges of $5.4 million ($4.4 million after tax) or $0.08 per diluted share partially due to fees related to the pursuit of a commercial claim. Fourth quarter 2017 results include a gain on sale of a SCS property of $24.1 million ($14.8 million after tax) or $0.27 per diluted share, and restructuring charges and consulting fees of $19.7 million ($12.7 million after tax) or $0.24 per diluted share.

Fourth quarter 2018 results reflect a non-cash benefit from tax reform and other tax adjustments of $20 million or $0.38 per diluted share. Fourth quarter 2017 results also reflect a one-time, non-cash benefit from tax reform of $587 million or $11.06 per diluted share to reduce deferred tax liabilities the company no longer expects to incur under the new law. In addition, results reflect a one-time employee bonus in connection with the benefit of tax reform awarded to all U.S.-based non-incentive eligible employees of the company, totaling $23 million ($14 million after tax) in the aggregate of $0.27 per diluted share.

Capital Expenditures

Year-to-date capital expenditures increased to $3.2 billion for 2018, compared with $1.9 billion in 2017. The increase in capital expenditures primarily reflects higher planned investments to grow and refresh the lease and rental fleets. Proceeds of $396 million, primarily from used vehicle sales, decreased 8% due to fewer vehicles available for sale. Net capital expenditures (including proceeds from the sale of assets) were $2.8 billion in 2018, up from $1.5 billion in 2017.

Cash Flow and Leverage

Year-to-date operating cash flow was $1.64 billion, up from $1.55 billion in 2017. Total cash generated (a non-GAAP measure that includes proceeds from used vehicle sales) was $2.11 billion, compared with $2.05 billion in 2017. Free cash flow (a non-GAAP measure) was negative $944 million, compared with positive $190 million in 2017, reflecting increased net-capital spending and to a lesser extent higher working capital requirements.

Total debt as of December 31, 2018 was $6.6 billion, up from $5.4 billion in 2017. Debt to equity as of December 31, 2018 was 228% compared with 191% at year-end 2017, within Ryder's long-term target range of 200 - 250%.

2019 Earnings Forecast

Commenting on the company’s outlook, Mr. Sanchez said, "In 2019, we are again anticipating solid earnings growth across all business segments. Higher expected earnings are driven by robust contractual revenue growth from record sales results in 2018 as well as the strength of our sales pipeline. We forecast record ChoiceLease fleet growth of 11,000 vehicles, driven by a continued trend toward outsourcing, our ongoing sales and marketing initiatives, and expansion with existing customers. We expect solid rental revenue growth, primarily in the expanding light- and medium-duty truck markets. In DTS and SCS, we anticipate revenue growth and margin expansion due to improved operating performance.

"Overall used vehicle results are expected to be modestly lower than the prior year due to slightly lower market pricing expectations on increased volumes. We are continuing to reduce our long-term residual value estimates on vehicles in operation and accelerating depreciation on vehicles we expect to make available for sale through mid-2020. The combined incremental impact from these items is expected to negatively impact year-over-year pre-tax earnings by approximately $27 million, an improvement from our prior expectation of $45 million.

"We anticipate a continued impact from higher maintenance costs on certain older model year vehicles, although to a lesser extent than in 2018, as these vehicles will be largely out of our operating fleet in the second half of the year. In addition, we expect significant cost reduction from a new, multi-year maintenance initiative to improve shop and parts supply efficiencies. We also forecast ongoing cost reductions across all segments driven by our zero-based budgeting process.

"We continue to invest in strategic initiatives related to sales and marketing, information technology, and new product development related to disruptive trends in the industry.

"We are planning significantly higher capital expenditures this year primarily due to increased investments to grow and refresh our lease fleet, more than offsetting decreased rental capital spending. We expect to deliver higher operating cash flow of $2 billion, reflecting the returns from several years of fleet investment. Free cash flow is forecast at negative $1.1 billion, from increased capital spending to support fleet growth and replacement.”

Ryder will adopt a new lease accounting standard effective January 1, 2019, which has no impact on cash flow or total earnings over the life of a lease contract. The new standard, however, changes the timing of revenue recognition to better align with maintenance costs. The 2019 forecast for earnings per diluted share was lowered by approximately $0.20 to reflect this standard. Following implementation of the standard, we estimate 2018 earnings per diluted share will increase by approximately $0.25 after restatement.

Forecast and results for full year and first quarter are as follows:

  Full Year       First Quarter
2019 Forecast   20181   % Change 2019 Forecast   20181   % Change
GAAP EPS $5.18-$5.48   $5.21   (1)-5% $0.71-$0.78   $0.64   11-22%
Comparable EPS2 $6.00-$6.30 $5.79 4-9% $0.96-$1.03 $0.91 5-13%
Comparable EPS -
Excluding New
Lease Accounting

Standard3

$6.20-$6.50 $5.79 7-12% $0.94-$1.01 $0.91 3-11%

12018 GAAP and comparable EPS numbers have not been restated to reflect the new lease accounting standard. On a restated basis, after giving effect to the implementation of the lease accounting standard, we estimate the 2018 Full Year GAAP and comparable earnings per diluted share will increase by approximately $0.25 to $5.46 and $6.04, respectively.

2Comparable earnings per diluted share exclude non-operating pension costs, implementation costs for our Enterprise Resource Planning system, restructuring and other costs, and tax items totaling of $0.82 in 2019 and $0.25 in the first quarter of 2019.

3We are providing this measure in order to provide shareholders with more transparency to the impact of the new lease accounting standard during the transition period.

Total revenue for the full-year 2019 is forecast to be up 8% to approximately $9 billion. Operating revenue for the full-year 2019 is forecast to be up 9% to approximately $7 billion.

Notations

Earnings Before Tax (EBT): Ryder’s primary measurement of business segment financial performance, earnings before tax (EBT), allocates Central Support Services to each business segment and excludes restructuring and other items, as well as non-operating pension costs.

Capital Expenditures: In Ryder’s business, capital expenditures are generally used to purchase revenue earning equipment (trucks, tractors, and trailers) primarily to support the full service lease product line and secondarily to support the commercial rental product line within Ryder’s FMS business segment. The level of capital required to support the full service lease product line varies directly with customer contract signings for replacement vehicles and growth. These contracts are long-term agreements that result in ongoing revenues and cash flows to Ryder, typically over a three- to ten-year term. The commercial rental product line utilizes capital for the purchase of vehicles to replenish and expand the company’s fleet available for shorter-term use by contractual or occasional customers.

Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements:

Certain statements and information included in this news release are “forward-looking statements” under the Federal Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, including our expectations regarding market trends and economic conditions, manufacturer production and delivery schedules, our financial condition, fleet growth, performance in our product lines and segments, the strength of our sales pipeline, demand, utilization and pricing trends in commercial rental, volumes and pricing trends in used vehicle sales, used vehicle inventory levels, residual values, return on capital spread, operating cash flow, free cash flow, capital expenditures, our ability to make investments in sales, marketing, IT and new product initiatives, benefits of our sales and marketing initiatives, maintenance costs on certain older model year vehicles, and the impact and adequacy of steps we have taken to address our cost structure, including our maintenance initiatives and zero-based budgeting process. Our forward-looking statements also include our expectations regarding the impact from the new lease accounting standard on our earnings, financial position, cash flow, leverage and the demand for our products and services. The expected impact on these items may differ due to changes in the distribution of lease fleet by age, the number of early terminations, vehicle type and lease terms, and the percentage of leases fulfilled with new versus used vehicles. All of these statements are based on our preliminary estimates and are subject to our continuing evaluation of our leases under the new lease accounting standard as well as necessary changes to accounting and business processes in order to implement the recognition and disclosure requirements of the new standard.

All of our forward-looking statements should be evaluated with consideration given to the many risks and uncertainties inherent in our business that could cause actual results and events to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements. Important factors that could cause such differences include, among others, our ability to adapt to changing market conditions, lower than expected contractual sales, decreases in commercial rental demand or poor acceptance of rental pricing, availability of rental vehicles to meet demand and availability of labor to maintain our fleet at normalized levels, worsening of market demand for used vehicles impacting current pricing and our anticipated proportion of retail versus wholesale sales, lack of customer demand for our services, higher than expected maintenance costs due to, among other things, lower than expected benefits from maintenance initiatives and a newer fleet, setbacks or uncertainty in the economic market, implementation or enforcement of regulations, decreases in freight demand or volumes, poor operational execution particularly with new accounts and product launches, our ability to obtain adequate profit margins for our services, our inability to maintain current pricing levels due to soft economic conditions, business interruptions or expenditures due to severe weather or natural occurrences, competition from other service providers and new entrants, customer retention levels, loss of key customers, driver and technician shortages resulting in higher procurement costs and turnover rates, unexpected bad debt reserves or write-offs, changes in customers' business environments that will limit their ability to commit to long-term vehicle leases, a decrease in credit ratings, increased debt costs, adequacy of accounting estimates, reserves and accruals particularly with respect to pension, taxes, depreciation, insurance and revenue, impact of changes in accounting policies, the sudden or unusual changes in fuel prices, unanticipated currency exchange rate fluctuations, our ability to manage our cost structure, and the risks described in our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The risks included here are not exhaustive. New risks emerge from time to time and it is not possible for management to predict all such risk factors or to assess the impact of such risks on our business. Accordingly, we undertake no obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events, or otherwise.
