Commenting on the Company’s first quarter 2014 performance, Ryder Chairman and CEO Robert Sanchez said, “We outperformed our forecast for the quarter, driven by Fleet Management Solutions, and delivered double-digit growth in comparable earnings per share to reach a record $0.92 per share. Our stronger-than-expected results were driven mainly by commercial rental and used vehicle sales. Supply Chain Solutions business segment earnings were impacted by weather-related items. However, for the overall company, the modest impacts of weather were offset by other benefits during the quarter.

“We also delivered record operating revenue that was up 4% for the quarter. Revenue continued to benefit from growth in commercial rental, full service lease, and our supply chain business. In Fleet Management Solutions, we are particularly pleased that we grew our lease fleet for the third consecutive quarter. We continue to see solid contractual sales activity in both business segments.”

First Quarter Business Segment Operating Results

Fleet Management Solutions (FMS)

In the FMS business segment, total revenue in the first quarter of 2014 was $1.14 billion, up 3% compared with the year-earlier period, due to higher operating revenue. Operating revenue (revenue excluding fuel) in the first quarter of 2014 was $859.9 million, up 4% compared with the year-earlier period. Full service lease revenue increased 4% in the first quarter of 2014 due to growth in the fleet size and higher prices on replacement vehicles. The quarter-end lease fleet also expanded sequentially versus the fourth quarter, reflecting increased sales activity. Commercial rental revenue improved 10% reflecting higher pricing and increased demand in North America.

FMS earnings before tax were $77.0 million in the first quarter of 2014, up 27% compared with $60.7 million in the same period of 2013. Increased earnings reflect strong commercial rental performance, improved used vehicle sales results, and better full service lease margins. Maintenance costs benefited from weather-related deferral of vehicle service activities, which are expected to occur in the second quarter. Commercial rental performance improved as a result of higher pricing and increased demand in North America. Rental power fleet utilization was 73.6% for the first quarter of 2014, consistent with the year-earlier period, on a 3% larger average fleet. Used vehicle sales results benefited from strong pricing. Full service lease results benefited from depreciation changes associated with increased residual values and growth in the fleet size. FMS earnings before tax as a percentage of operating revenue were 9.0% in the first quarter of 2014, up 160 basis points from 7.4% in the same quarter a year ago.

Supply Chain Solutions (SCS)

In the SCS business segment, first quarter 2014 total revenue was $597.3 million, up 4%, as higher operating revenue offset lower subcontracted transportation. Operating revenue (revenue excluding subcontracted transportation) was $520.4 million, an increase of 5% from the prior year. SCS operating revenue comparisons benefited from new business and increased volumes in the industrial, consumer packaged goods/retail, and high-tech industry groups. These benefits were partially offset by the impact of weather on customer activity levels and foreign exchange.

SCS earnings before tax of $21.8 million decreased 11% in the first quarter of 2014 compared with $24.4 million in 2013, driven by weather-related impacts and, to a lesser extent, start-up costs on a new account. SCS earnings before tax as a percentage of operating revenue were 4.2% in the first quarter of 2014, down 70 basis points from 4.9% in the same quarter a year ago.

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 2014, CSS costs were $58.7 million, up from $54.6 million in the year-earlier period, primarily driven by higher information technology and marketing-related costs.

Income Taxes

The Company’s effective income tax rate from continuing operations for the first quarter of 2014 was 34.5% of earnings before tax compared with 34.7% in the year-earlier period. The first quarter of 2014 included a benefit of $1.8 million (2.4% of pre-tax earnings) related to a favorable tax law change in the state of New York. Without the impact of the tax law change and additional items excluded from comparable earnings, the Company’s first quarter 2014 comparable effective income tax rate was 37.2% of earnings before tax versus 36.2% in the prior year. This increase was primarily due to a higher proportion of earnings in higher tax rate jurisdictions.

Additional Items Excluded from Comparable Earnings

Non-operating components of pension costs are excluded from both comparable earnings and segment earnings before tax in order to more accurately reflect the operating performance of the business. Non-operating pension costs totaled $3.3 million ($1.9 million after tax) or $0.03 per diluted share in the first quarter of 2014, down from $5.2 million ($3.1 million after tax) or $0.06 per diluted share in the year-earlier period. This decrease was primarily due to higher than expected asset returns in 2013.

In the first quarter of the year-earlier period, the Company recognized a pre-tax benefit of $1.9 million ($1.9 million after tax) or $0.04 per diluted share from the recognition of the accumulated foreign currency translation adjustment.

Capital Expenditures

Capital expenditures from continuing operations were $596 million for the first quarter of 2014, compared with $449 million in the same period of 2013. Net capital expenditures (including proceeds from the sale of assets) from continuing operations were $468 million, compared with $336 million in the same period of 2013. The planned increase in capital expenditures primarily reflects investments in both the commercial rental and full service lease fleets.

Cash Flow

Operating cash flow from continuing operations through March 31, 2014 was $238 million, down from $249 million in the same period of 2013, due to higher working capital needs, partially offset by improved cash-based earnings. Total cash generated (including proceeds from used vehicle sales) from continuing operations through March 31, 2014, was $380 million, compared with $393 million in the same period of 2013. Free cash flow from continuing operations through March 31, 2014 was negative $198 million, compared with negative $27 million for the same period of 2013. The decrease was primarily due to planned higher capital spending.

Leverage

Balance sheet debt as of March 31, 2014 increased by $257 million compared with year-end 2013 resulting from negative free cash flow. The leverage ratio for balance sheet debt as of March 31, 2014 was 234%, compared with 221% at year-end 2013. Total obligations to equity as of March 31, 2014 were 239%, compared with 226% at year-end 2013. Total obligations to equity remain within Ryder’s long-term target range of 225% to 275%.

2014 Earnings Forecast

Commenting on the Company’s outlook, Mr. Sanchez said, “We expect the positive trends we’ve seen in the performance of our commercial rental and used vehicle sales products to continue. Lease sales are up from last year and our full-year forecast for fleet growth remains on track. We are also encouraged by the continued strong acceptance of our new products including on-demand maintenance. We anticipate some increased maintenance costs in the second quarter that were deferred from the first quarter due to weather. In Supply Chain Solutions, we expect positive year-over-year comparisons for the second quarter. Finally, we expect to continue implementing the Company’s previously announced anti-dilutive share repurchase program, under which we began purchase activity in the first quarter.

“Based on our outlook, we are increasing our full-year 2014 comparable earnings forecast to $5.40 to $5.55 per share, up from a previous range of $5.30 to $5.45. We have also established a second quarter comparable earnings forecast of $1.35 to $1.40 per share.”

Supplemental Company Information

First Quarter Net Earnings

Net earnings per diluted share (including discontinued operations) for the three-month period ended March 31, 2014 were $0.90 versus $0.77 in the year-earlier period. Earnings per diluted share from discontinued operations (previously announced in 2009) totaled a loss of $0.02 in both the first quarter of 2014 and 2013. Net earnings for the first quarter of 2014 were $48.2 million versus $39.9 million in the year-earlier period.

Business Description

Ryder System, Inc. is a FORTUNE 500® commercial transportation, logistics and supply chain solutions company. Ryder’s stock (NYSE: R) is a component of the Dow Jones Transportation Average and the Standard & Poor’s 500 Index. The Company’s financial performance is reported in the following two, inter-related business segments:

  • Fleet Management Solutions – Ryder’s FMS business segment provides one-stop outsourcing of a range of solutions for commercial truck fleet operators, including vehicle maintenance, leasing and rental, used vehicle sales, as well as services such as roadside assistance, fueling, safety and financing options.
  • Supply Chain Solutions – Ryder’s SCS business segment offers a broad range of innovative solutions designed to optimize day-to-day logistics operations and synchronize the supply of parts and finished goods with customer demand. Solutions are strategically engineered to address customer requirements, and include lead logistics management, dedicated services, warehousing, transportation management, packaging, and other value-added services.

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.
