LAKE OSWEGO, Ore., July 2, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The Greenbrier Companies, Inc. (NYSE: GBX) today reported financial results for its third fiscal quarter ended May 31, 2014.

Third Quarter Highlights

  • Net earnings attributable to Greenbrier for the quarter of $33.6 million, or $1.03 per diluted share, were over double the second quarter EPS of $0.50.
  • Adjusted EBITDA for the quarter was $78.0 million, or 13.1% of revenue.
  • Railcar backlog as of May 31, 2014 was 26,400 units with an estimated value of $2.75 billion (average unit sale price of $104,000), compared to 15,200 units with an estimated value of $1.54 billion (average unit sale price of $101,000) as of February 28, 2014.
  • New railcar deliveries totaled 4,300 units for the quarter, compared to 3,400 units for the quarter ended February 28, 2014.
  • Orders for 15,600 new railcars valued at $1.65 billion received during the quarter. After quarter end, Greenbrier received orders for an additional 2,700 units valued at approximately $320 million.
  • Marine backlog as of May 31, 2014 totaled approximately $110 million.
  • Board declares a quarterly dividend of $0.15 per share payable on August 5, 2014 to shareholders of record as of July 15, 2014.
  • Repurchased 352,000 shares of common stock at a cost of $16.0 million during the quarter. To date, repurchased 641,327 shares of common stock at a cost of $26.3 million under a $50 million share repurchase program.

Progress on Strategic Initiatives

  • Third quarter aggregate gross margin reached 16.3%, compared to 11.5% in the second quarter, and ahead of our stated goal of a minimum 13.5% by the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014.
  • Manufacturing gross margin reached a record 17.3% in the quarter, driven by product mix, pricing and production efficiencies.
  • Successfully met $100 million capital efficiency goal. Net debt has decreased nearly $160 million since February 2013 when goal was set.  Management remains intensely focused on capital efficiency and ROIC.
  • Greenbrier continues leadership role in tank car safety. Receives awards for 3,500 units of Tank Car of the Future; announces repair joint venture with Watco, GBW Railcar Services.

William A. Furman, Chairman and CEO, said, "This quarter represents a solid and sustainable performance level, and provides a good base for further growth and diversification.  All three of our business segments improved their financial performance, with manufacturing and leasing continuing to lead the way.  I am very proud of our employees for their achievements and execution against our strategic plan."

"We have diversified our product mix, added efficient capacity in lower cost facilities, and driven considerably more product through our leasing model, all in line with our announced strategy.  This strategy is paying off and we expect growth from all areas in our integrated business model in the quarters ahead.  Most recently, our planned repair joint venture with Watco, named GBW Railcar Services, will increase our scale in tank car repair, allowing us to participate in a meaningful way in the growing tank car repair business, with demand driven by retrofit, lining and maintenance needs from both the DOT-111 legacy and CPC-1232 fleets, as well as rapid growth in North American tank car traffic," Furman continued.

"In addition to tank car retrofits, we are also pioneering efforts to improve safety in the rail industry with our Tank Car of the Future design. Safety design features include thicker steel, more robust top and bottom outlet protections, and jacketed shells with ceramic insulation, along with full height head shields.  Recently, Greenbrier received awards for 3,500 units of its Tank Car of the Future.  These cars are eight times safer than legacy DOT-111 cars most widely used in oil and ethanol service today, and two times safer than the current state-of-the-art CPC 1232 tank cars, as measured by Conditional Probability of Release (CPR).  We continue to call on regulators to issue new rules establishing safer tank car standards independent of rulemaking on railroad speed restrictions.  Our government needs to act on this issue now. This will allow railroads to transport hazardous materials safer at any speed," Furman added.

Liquidity & Business Outlook

Furman concluded, "We ended May with over $530 million of liquidity from cash balances and available borrowings on revolving credit facilities.  With a strong backlog, good industry fundamentals and positive outlook, we are investing in capital projects with high returns where we will quickly recoup our investment.  We are also pursuing growth opportunities in areas core to our business that will diversify our revenue base throughout the cycle.  The future looks bright for Greenbrier, and we remain committed to improving operations in each segment and enhancing the long-term trajectory of key metrics, such as gross margins, EBITDA and ROIC." 

 Based on current business trends and industry forecasts, Greenbrier now expects:

  • Deliveries in the fourth quarter to be between 4,300 units and 4,600 units, resulting in fiscal 2014 deliveries of 15,700 units to 16,000 units
  • Fourth quarter revenue to increase 4-6% above third quarter revenue of $593 million, resulting in annual revenue in excess of $2.2 billion
  • EPS, excluding restructuring charges, for the fourth quarter in the range of $0.95 to $1.05 resulting in fiscal 2014 EPS, excluding restructuring charges, in the range of $2.98 to $3.08 (1)

(1)     Quarterly amounts do not total to the annual amount as each period is calculated discretely.

The above estimates reflect an anticipated 29% tax rate and nominal gains on disposition of equipment in the fourth quarter.

The above estimates do not reflect any purchase price accounting adjustments, one-time transaction-related costs, or other effects that may occur in conjunction with the closing of the GBW joint venture.  While the trend in gross margin is expected to continue, management does not believe its track will be linear.

Greenbrier will provide its financial outlook for 2015 when fourth quarter results are released at the end of October 2014.

(2)  

Earnings attributable to our 50% GIMSA JV can cause a significant reduction in the tax rate when those earnings are significant, as was the case in the third quarter.  This occurs since 100% of GIMSA's earnings are included in our pre-tax results, but income taxes only include Greenbrier's tax obligation on 50% of GIMSA's earnings.  Earnings and taxes are presented this way because the GIMSA JV is a non-taxpaying domestic partnership for which taxes are payable by the partners rather than the partnership.  Net earnings attributable to noncontrolling interest includes our partner's 50% share of GIMSA's pre-tax earnings.  The tax rate for the current and prior quarter would have been approximately 33% - 35% had GIMSA not been a partnership, and had 100% of pre-tax earnings been taxed, with noncontrolling interest shown net of tax.

"SAFE HARBOR" STATEMENT UNDER THE PRIVATE SECURITIES LITIGATION REFORM ACT OF 1995:  This press release may contain forward-looking statements, including statements regarding expected new railcar production volumes and schedules, expected customer demand for the Company's products and services, plans to increase manufacturing capacity, restructuring plans, new railcar delivery volumes and schedules, growth in demand for the Company's railcar services and parts business, and the Company's future financial performance. Greenbrier uses words such as "anticipates," "believes," "forecast," "potential," "goal," "contemplates," "expects," "intends," "plans," "projects," "hopes," "seeks," "estimates," "strategy," "could," "would," "should," "likely," "will," "may," "can," "designed to," "future," "foreseeable future" and similar expressions to identify forward-looking statements.  These forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance and are subject to certain risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from in the results contemplated by the forward-looking statements.  Factors that might cause such a difference include, but are not limited to, reported backlog and awards are not indicative of our financial results; turmoil in the credit markets and financial services industry; high levels of indebtedness and compliance with the terms of our indebtedness; write-downs of goodwill, intangibles and other assets in future periods; sufficient availability of borrowing capacity; fluctuations in demand for newly manufactured railcars or failure to obtain orders as anticipated in developing forecasts; loss of one or more significant customers; customer payment defaults or related issues; actual future costs and the availability of materials and a trained workforce; failure to design or manufacture new products or technologies or to achieve certification or market acceptance of new products or technologies; steel or specialty component price fluctuations and availability and scrap surcharges; changes in product mix and the mix between segments; labor disputes, energy shortages or operating difficulties that might disrupt manufacturing operations or the flow of cargo; production difficulties and product delivery delays as a result of, among other matters, inefficiencies associated with expansion or start-up of production lines or increased production rates, changing technologies, transfer of production between facilities or non-performance of alliance partners, subcontractors or suppliers; ability to obtain suitable contracts for the sale of leased equipment and risks related to car hire and residual values; integration of current or future acquisitions and establishment of joint ventures; succession planning; discovery of defects in railcars or services resulting in increased warranty costs or litigation; physical damage or product or service liability claims that exceed our insurance coverage; train derailments or other accidents or claims that could subject us to legal claims; actions or inactions by various regulatory agencies including potential environmental remediation obligations or changing tank car or other rail car or railroad regulation; and interruption of our manufacturing operations as a result of lease termination or expiration; all as may be discussed in more detail under the headings "Risk Factors" and "Forward Looking Statements" in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended August 31, 2013, and our other reports on file with the Securities and Exchange Commission.  Readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements, which reflect management's opinions only as of the date hereof.  Except as otherwise required by law, we do not assume any obligation to update any forward-looking statements.

Net earnings excluding restructuring charges, Adjusted EBITDA, and Diluted earnings per share excluding restructuring charges are not financial measures under generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). We define Net earnings excluding restructuring charges as Net earnings before restructuring charges (after-tax). We define Adjusted EBITDA as Net earnings attributable to Greenbrier before interest and foreign exchange, income tax expense, restructuring charges and depreciation and amortization. We define Diluted earnings per share excluding restructuring charges as Net earnings excluding restructuring charges before interest and debt issuance costs (net of tax) on convertible notes divided by Weighted average diluted common shares outstanding.  Net earnings excluding restructuring charges, Adjusted EBITDA, and Diluted earnings per share excluding restructuring charges are performance measurement tools used by Greenbrier. You should not consider Net earnings excluding restructuring charges, Adjusted EBITDA, and Diluted earnings per share excluding restructuring charges in isolation or as a substitute for other financial statement data determined in accordance with GAAP. In addition, because Adjusted EBITDA and Diluted earnings per share excluding restructuring charges are not measures of financial performance under GAAP and are susceptible to varying calculations, the Adjusted EBITDA and Diluted earnings per share excluding restructuring charges measures presented may differ from and may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies.

(1)

Adjusted EBITDA is not a financial measure under generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP).  We define Adjusted EBITDA as Net earnings before interest and foreign exchange, income tax expense, restructuring charges, depreciation and amortization.  Adjusted EBITDA is a performance measurement tool commonly used by rail supply companies and Greenbrier.  You should not consider Adjusted EBITDA in isolation or as a substitute for other financial statement data determined in accordance with GAAP.  In addition, because Adjusted EBITDA is not a measure of financial performance under GAAP and is susceptible to varying calculations, the Adjusted EBITDA measure presented may differ from and may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies.

Reconciliation of common shares outstanding and diluted earnings per share

The shares used in the computation of the Company's basic and diluted earnings per common share and Diluted earnings per share excluding restructuring charges are reconciled as follows:


Three Months Ended



May 31,
2014


February 28,
2014


Weighted average basic common shares outstanding (1)

27,956


28,300


Dilutive effect of convertible notes (2)

6,045


6,045


Weighted average diluted common shares outstanding

34,001


34,345











(1)    

Restricted stock grants and restricted stock units, including some grants subject to certain performance criteria, are included in weighted average basic common shares outstanding when the Company is in a net earnings position.



(2)    

The dilutive effect of the 2018 Convertible notes are included in the Weighted average diluted common shares outstanding as they were considered dilutive under the "if converted" method as further discussed below. The dilutive effect of the 2026 Convertible notes was included for the three months ended May 31, 2014 and excluded for the three months ended February 28, 2014 based on the average stock price being greater or less than the initial conversion price of $48.05; however, the dilutive impact was inconsequential to the quarter ended May 31, 2014.

Diluted earnings per share was calculated using the more dilutive of two approaches.  The first approach includes the dilutive effect of outstanding warrants and shares underlying the 2026 Convertible notes in the share count using the treasury stock method. The second approach supplements the first by including the "if converted" effect of the 2018 Convertible notes issued in March 2011. Under the "if converted method" debt issuance and interest costs, both net of tax, associated with the convertible notes are added back to net earnings and the share count is increased by the shares underlying the convertible notes. The 2026 Convertible notes would only be included in the calculation of both approaches if the current stock price is greater than the initial conversion price of $48.05 using the treasury stock method.

$                    1.03


$                     0.51



(1) 

Net earnings excluding restructuring charges is not a financial measure under GAAP. We define Net earnings excluding restructuring charges as Net earnings attributable to Greenbrier before restructuring charges (after-tax). Net earnings excluding restructuring charges is a performance measurement tool used by Greenbrier. You should not consider Net earnings excluding restructuring charges in isolation or as a substitute for other financial statement data determined in accordance with GAAP. 

(2) 

Diluted earnings per share excluding restructuring charges is not a financial measure under GAAP. We define Diluted earnings per share excluding restructuring charges as Net earnings excluding restructuring charges before interest and debt issuance costs (net of tax) on convertible notes divided by Weighted average diluted common shares outstanding. Diluted earnings per share excluding restructuring charges is a performance measurement tool used by Greenbrier. You should not consider Diluted earnings per share excluding restructuring charges in isolation or as a substitute for other financial statement data determined in accordance with GAAP. In addition, because Diluted earnings per share excluding restructuring charges is not a measure of financial performance under GAAP and is susceptible to varying calculations, the Diluted earnings per share excluding restructuring charges measure presented may differ from and may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies.
