SCS $ 635.7 494.7 28% $ 477.1 382.8 25%
 

Commenting on the company’s first quarter results, Ryder Chairman and CEO Robert Sanchez said, "We are pleased to report double-digit operating revenue and earnings growth, driven by strong performance in our contractual businesses. This growth reflects continued outsourcing trends and the impact of our sales and marketing initiatives. We out-performed our forecast, primarily due to better than anticipated impact of the new lease accounting standard and to a lesser extent stronger performance in ChoiceLease and Dedicated.

"We are encouraged by accelerated growth in the ChoiceLease fleet, which increased organically by a record 4,200 vehicles this quarter, with 40% of the growth coming from customers new to outsourcing. Once these customers outsource their fleets to us, we typically expand and retain these relationships for decades.

"Our transactional rental and used vehicles sales businesses performed in line with our expectations. Additionally, used vehicle inventory levels remain within our target range.

"In both Dedicated Transportation Solutions and Supply Chain Solutions, we saw earnings improvement reflecting revenue growth and stronger operating performance.

"Turning to our longer-term strategic initiatives, we’re excited by the positive results we saw from our Atlanta pilot of COOP by Ryder™ and have expanded the platform to South Florida. COOP is the first and only asset sharing platform of its kind for commercial vehicles, which enables fleet owners to generate revenue from their underutilized vehicles and provides an asset-light earnings source for Ryder."

First Quarter Business Segment Operating Results

Fleet Management Solutions

In the Fleet Management Solutions (FMS) business segment, total revenue was $1.35 billion, up 9% compared with $1.24 billion in the year-earlier period. FMS operating revenue (a non-GAAP measure excluding fuel) was $1.14 billion, up 10% from the year-earlier period. Ryder ChoiceLease TM (lease) revenue increased 8% reflecting a larger average fleet size and higher prices on replacement vehicles. The lease fleet grew by 4,200 vehicles for the quarter. Commercial rental revenue increased 15% from the prior year due to higher demand and pricing.

FMS earnings before tax were $60.9 million, up 12%, compared with $54.3 million in 2018, reflecting ChoiceLease and to a lesser extent commercial rental growth. Lease results benefited from fleet growth, reflecting strong outsourcing trends and our sales and marketing initiatives. Commercial rental performance improved due to stronger demand and higher pricing. Rental power fleet utilization was 74.9% for the first quarter consistent with the year-earlier period. Both lease and rental performance benefited from a significant maintenance cost recovery item. These benefits were offset by higher depreciation of $8.6 million due to vehicle residual-value changes and accelerated depreciation, as well as higher liability insurance costs related to development of prior years' claims. In addition, overheads were higher, reflecting growth-related investments in sales, marketing, and technology. Used vehicle results slightly declined from the prior year as increased sales of used vehicles at higher prices were offset by higher valuation adjustments on a larger inventory. FMS earnings before tax as a percentage of FMS total revenue and FMS operating revenue (a non-GAAP measure) were 4.5% and 5.3%, respectively, both are up by 10 basis points from the prior year.

Dedicated Transportation Solutions

In the Dedicated Transportation Solutions (DTS) business segment, total revenue was up 17% to $350 million and DTS operating revenue (a non-GAAP measure excluding fuel and subcontracted transportation) was up 17% to $236 million compared with the year-earlier period. DTS total and operating revenue growth reflects new business, customer expansions, and increased volumes.

DTS earnings before tax of $17.4 million increased 33% compared with $13.1 million in 2018, due to revenue growth, improved operating performance, and favorable insurance results related to development of prior years' claims. DTS earnings before tax as a percentage of DTS total revenue and DTS operating revenue (a non-GAAP measure) were 5.0% and 7.4%, respectively, up 60 and 90 basis points from the year-earlier period.

Supply Chain Solutions

In the Supply Chain Solutions (SCS) business segment, total revenue was up 28% to $636 million and SCS operating revenue (a non-GAAP measure excluding fuel and subcontracted transportation) was up 25% to $477 million compared with the year-earlier period. SCS operating revenue growth largely reflects new business, increased volumes, and higher pricing. Total and operating revenue growth also reflects the acquisition of MXD Group, Inc., re-branded as Ryder Last Mile, during the second quarter of 2018.

SCS earnings before tax of $32.3 million increased 27% in the first quarter of 2019 compared with $25.5 million in 2018, driven by revenue growth. SCS earnings before tax as a percentage of SCS total revenue and SCS operating revenue (a non-GAAP measure) were 5.1% and 6.8%, respectively, down 10 basis points and up 10 basis points from the year-earlier period.

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 first quarter of 2019, unallocated CSS costs increased to $13 million from $11 million in the prior year.

Income Taxes

The company’s effective income tax rate from continuing operations for the first quarter of 2019 increased from 29.2% to 32.7%. The increase reflects the expiration of certain state net operating losses in 2019 and a one-time beneficial adjustment associated with uncertain tax positions in 2018. The comparable effective income tax rate (a non-GAAP measure) from continuing operations for the first quarter of 2019 increased from 26.0% to 27.6%. This increase reflects a change in the mix of jurisdictional earnings.

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 $6.5 million ($4.6 million after tax) or $0.09 per diluted share in the first quarter of 2019, up from $1.2 million ($0.6 million after tax) or $0.01 per diluted share in the year-earlier period.

First quarter 2019 results include $3.6 million ($2.7 million after tax) or $0.05 per diluted share of expense related to the implementation of an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system. Results also include restructuring and other, net of $2.6 million ($1.8 million after tax) or $0.04 per diluted share, primarily reflecting consulting fees related to a cost-savings initiative, partially offset by income from the company's Singapore operations which will be exited in 2019.

First quarter 2018 results reflect a non-cash, pre-tax charge of $15.5 million ($15.5 million after tax) or $0.29 per diluted share related to the impairment of goodwill in our FMS Europe reporting unit and $0.4 million ($0.4 million after tax) of restructuring and other, net, including income related to the company's Singapore operations.

Lease Accounting

The company adopted 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 lease revenue and related commission expense recognition to better align with maintenance costs. Adoption of the standard increased earnings per share by $0.11 in the first quarter of 2019 and $0.06 in the first quarter of 2018. Although we saw a benefit from lease accounting in the first quarter, we expect adoption of the standard to reduce full year 2019 earnings per share by approximately $0.15 as the fleet is expected to get younger during the year.

Capital Expenditures

Capital expenditures increased to $1.11 billion in the first quarter of 2019, compared with $711 million in first quarter of 2018. The increase in capital expenditures reflects higher planned investments to grow and refresh the lease fleets. Proceeds of $103 million, primarily from used vehicle sales, increased 15%. Net capital expenditures (including proceeds from the sale of assets) were $1.01 billion in 2019, up from $621 million in 2018.

Cash Flow and Leverage

Operating cash flow was $485 million in the first quarter of 2019, up from $337 million in first quarter of 2018. Total cash generated (a non-GAAP measure that includes proceeds from used vehicle sales) was $589 million, compared with $427 million in 2018. Free cash flow (a non-GAAP measure) was negative $438 million, compared with negative $236 million in 2018, reflecting increased net capital spending.

Total debt as of March 31, 2019 was $7.1 billion, up from $6.6 billion in 2018. Debt to equity for the first quarter of 2019 was 278% compared with 262% at year-end 2018, within Ryder’s long-term target range of 250% to 300%.

2019 Earnings Forecast

Commenting on the company’s outlook, Mr. Sanchez said, "We continue to see a healthy economic environment and customers remain confident in making long-term contractual commitments. In addition, demand for rental and used vehicles remains favorable, however, we continue to plan for a somewhat softer year-over-year comparisons in the second half. Overall, we are on track to meet our earnings expectations for the full year with a modestly better than expected impact from lease accounting.

"We are on pace to meet or beat our 2019 revenue growth targets in all business segments. In rental, our strategy to leverage e-commerce growth by expanding our medium-duty truck fleet is proceeding well. In used vehicles sales, we are expanding our retail sales capacity to handle additional volume and we continue to expect pricing to be slightly down, particularly in the second half of the year. In addition, we anticipate executing well on our recently announced maintenance cost initiative for the full year.

"In supply chain solutions, we expect revenue comparisons to turn negative in the second half of the year due to previously announced lost business; however, year-over-year earnings are expected to improve. In dedicated transportation solutions, we expect continued improvements in operating performance. Finally, our capital spending and leverage outlook remains consistent with our prior expectations."

In view of these factors, Ryder is revising its full-year 2019 GAAP EPS forecast to a range of $5.28 to $5.58, as compared to the prior forecast of $5.18 to $5.48. In 2018, full-year GAAP EPS was $5.44. The company is also increasing its forecast for full-year 2019 comparable EPS from continuing operations to $6.05 to $6.35, from the prior forecast of $6.00 to $6.30. In 2018, full-year comparable EPS was $5.97.

Ryder is establishing a second quarter 2019 GAAP EPS forecast of $1.14 to $1.24, compared with $0.88 in the second quarter 2018. The company is also establishing a second quarter 2019 forecast for comparable EPS from continuing operations of $1.34 to $1.44, compared with $1.46 in the second quarter 2018. The EPS forecast for the second quarter of 2019 includes a negative impact of $0.05 associated with the adoption of the new lease accounting standard compared to a benefit of $0.05 in the year earlier period. The lease accounting impact in the second quarter reflects an expected decline in the fleet age.

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 ChoiceLease 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 ChoiceLease product line varies directly with customer contract signings for growth and replacement vehicles. 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 Ryder’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 environment, our financial condition, fleet growth, performance in our product lines and segments, the strength of our sales pipeline, projections related to customer retention, 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, leverage, our ability to make investments in sales, marketing, IT, e-commerce and new product initiatives, costs of implementing our ERP system ,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, 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, lower than expected benefits from our cost-savings, lower than expected benefits from our sales, marketing and new product initiatives, higher than expected costs related to our ERP implementation, setbacks or uncertainty in the economic market, implementation or enforcement of regulations, decreases in freight demand or volumes, poor operational execution including with respect to 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.
