"Horizon Lines recorded a 6.1% decline in fourth-quarter container volume, which was partially offset by a 3.1% rise in container revenue, net of fuel surcharges, compared with the same period a year ago," said Sam Woodward, President and Chief Executive Officer. "A volume decline in Puerto Rico drove the overall decrease in revenue and revenue loads.

"The $5.9 million decline in fourth-quarter adjusted EBITDA from a year ago was primarily due to the volume contraction, and to a lesser extent the incremental costs associated with the completion of dry-docking our three Puerto Rico vessels in China, and increased vessel operating and overhead costs related to contractual rate increases, organized labor work stoppages, and vessel incidents. These negative variances were partially offset by improved non-transportation and space charter revenue, as well as improved terminal costs.

"As previously discussed, Horizon Lines dry-docked three Puerto Rico vessels in China during the year to facilitate extensive maintenance and high-quality enhancements in the most cost-efficient manner possible.  The work performed is intended to improve vessel reliability and service integrity in Puerto Rico. Incremental transit and crew costs associated with these dry-dockings negatively impacted 2012 fourth-quarter adjusted EBITDA by approximately $3.3 million and full-year adjusted EBITDA by approximately $18.2 million."

"Additionally, fourth-quarter financial results were negatively impacted by a $4.3 million restructuring charge related to the company's December decision to reduce sailings between Jacksonville and San Juan to once a week, and to further reduce the  company's non-union workforce," Mr. Woodward said. "We expect the Jacksonville schedule change, combined with our decision announced last week to move the northeast service to Philadelphia, will produce lasting cost efficiencies while further improving customer service. These steps should allow Horizon Lines to strengthen the financial performance of our Puerto Rico trade lane and invest in the business over the long term."

 

Fourth-Quarter 2012 Financial Highlights  

  • Volume, Rate & Fuel Cost – Container volume for the 2012 fourth quarter totaled 56,601 revenue loads, down 6.1% from 60,279 loads for the same period a year ago.  Unit revenue per container totaled $4,295 in the fourth quarter, compared with $4,147 in 2011.  Unit revenue per container, net of fuel surcharges, was $3,233, up 3.1% from $3,136 a year ago.  Vessel fuel costs averaged $694 per metric ton in the fourth quarter, up 3.4% from the average price of $671 per ton for the same quarter in 2011, largely due to the company's compliance with the Environmental Protection Agency's low-sulfur fuel requirement in Alaska.         
  • Operating Revenue – Fourth-quarter operating revenue from continuing operations declined 1.6% to $259.8 million from $264.1 million a year ago.  The factors in the $4.3 million revenue shortfall were: an $11.6 million volume contraction and an associated $0.6 million decline in fuel surcharges.  These were partially offset by a $5.7 million increase in container revenue rates, a $1.1 million improvement in space charter revenue, and a $1.1 million rise in non-transportation revenue.
  • Operating Loss – The GAAP operating loss from continuing operations for the fourth quarter totaled $3.9 million, compared with a loss of $6.9 million a year ago.  The 2012 GAAP operating loss includes charges totaling $4.9 million associated with a restructuring charge, employee severance, antitrust-related legal expenses and an equipment impairment charge. The 2011 GAAP operating loss includes $14.0 million in charges for antitrust-related legal settlements and expenses, employee severance and an equipment impairment charge, partially offset by a $2.2 million gain resulting from a reduction of the goodwill impairment charge recorded in the 2011 third quarter  (see reconciliation tables for specific line-item amounts). Adjusting for these items, fourth-quarter 2012 adjusted operating income totaled $1.0 million, compared with $4.9 million a year earlier.      
  • EBITDA – EBITDA from continuing operations totaled $8.2 million for the 2012 fourth quarter, compared with $108.1 million for the same period a year ago.  Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations for the fourth quarter of 2012 was $13.0 million, compared with $18.9 million for 2011.  EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA for the 2012 and 2011 fourth quarters were impacted by the same factors affecting operating income. Additionally, 2012 adjusted EBITDA excludes $0.2 million in gains on the conversion of debt.  Adjusted EBITDA for the 2011 fourth quarter excludes gains of $101.1 million related to the company's debt refinancing transaction and marking the conversion feature in the company's convertible debt to fair value (see reconciliation tables for specific line-item amounts).     
  • Net Loss – On a GAAP basis, the fourth-quarter net loss from continuing operations totaled $17.9 million, or $0.52 per share on a weighted average of 34.3 million fully diluted shares outstanding.  This compares with year-ago net income of $74.2 million, or $24.14 per fully diluted share, based on a weighted average of 3.1 million fully diluted shares outstanding.  On an adjusted basis, the 2012 fourth-quarter net loss totaled $12.8 million, or $0.38 per share, compared with a net loss of $14.6 million, or $4.74 per share, for the 2011 fourth quarter.  Adjusted net income for the 2012 and 2011 fourth quarters reflects the same items that impacted adjusted EBITDA.  Additionally, adjusted net income for both periods excludes the non-cash accretion of antitrust-related legal settlements and includes the tax impact of the adjustments (see reconciliation tables for specific line-item amounts).      
  • Full-Year Results – For the full fiscal year ended December 23, 2012, operating revenue from continuing operations increased 3.9% to $1.07 billion from $1.03 billion for fiscal 2011. EBITDA from continuing operations totaled $39.7 million compared with $60.9 million a year ago.  Adjusted EBITDA for 2012 totaled $66.0 million, compared with $82.1 million a year ago.  Incremental transit and crew costs associated with China dry-dockings of the company's three Puerto Rico vessels negatively impacted 2012 adjusted EBITDA by approximately $18.2 million for the full year.  Adjustments to EBITDA for 2012 and 2011 are generally due to the same factors as outlined for the quarters (see reconciliation tables for specific line-item amounts). The net loss from continuing operations for 2012 totaled $74.4 million, or $3.26 per share, based on a weighted average of 22.8 million shares outstanding.  This compares with a 2011 loss from continuing operations of $53.2 million, or $36.33 per share, based on a weighted average of 1.5 million shares outstanding.  The adjusted net loss from continuing operations for 2012 totaled $46.1 million, or $2.02 per share, compared with an adjusted net loss from continuing operations of $31.9 million, or $21.76 per share, for 2011.      
  • Shares Outstanding – The company had a weighted daily average of 34.3 million basic and fully diluted shares outstanding for the fourth quarter of 2012, and 22.8 million basic and fully diluted for the full year.  This compares with a weighted daily average of 2.2 million basic and 3.1 million fully diluted shares outstanding for the 2011 fourth quarter, and 1.5 million basic and fully diluted shares for the full year.  Shares outstanding reflect the financial restructuring and 1-for-25 reverse stock split in the fourth quarter of 2011, a mandatory debt-for-equity exchange in the first quarter of 2012, and a further financial restructuring in the second quarter of 2012.  At March 1, 2013, the equivalent of 91.8 million fully diluted shares of the company's stock were outstanding, consisting of 34.4 million shares of common stock and warrants convertible into 57.4 million shares of common stock.   

Liquidity, Credit Facility Compliance & Debt Structure

The company had total liquidity of $50.6 million as of December 23, 2012, consisting of cash of $27.8 million and $22.8 million available under its asset-based loan (ABL) revolving credit facility. Funded debt outstanding totaled $433.8 million, consisting of: $222.8 million of 11.00% first-lien secured notes due October 15, 2016; $159.1 million of second-lien secured notes due October 15, 2016, bearing interest at 15.00%, being paid in kind with additional second-lien secured notes; $42.5 million drawn on the ABL facility, maturing October 5, 2016, and bearing interest at a weighted average of 4.06%; $2.0 million of 6.00% convertible notes, due April 15, 2017; and $7.4 million in capital leases. The company's weighted average interest rate for funded debt was 11.8%.  Availability under the ABL credit facility is based on a percentage of eligible accounts receivable and customary reserves, with a maximum of $100 million. Letters of credit issued against the ABL facility totaled $13.2 million at December 23, 2012. 

Please see attached schedules for the reconciliation of fourth-quarter and full-year 2012 and 2011 reported GAAP results and Non-GAAP adjusted results.

2013 Outlook 

We expect 2013 revenue container volume and rates to be slightly higher than 2012 levels, excluding the loss of revenue loads associated with the Puerto Rico service scope reduction. Revenue container rate increases are necessary to mitigate contractual and inflationary increases in expenses, including our vessel payroll costs and benefits, stevedoring, port charges, wharfage, inland transportation costs, and rolling stock costs, among others.

We expect our 2013 vessel lease expense to be approximately $13.8 million lower than in 2012 due to the recent acquisition of three of our Jones Act-qualified vessels that were not previously owned.  The lower vessel lease expense will be partially offset by approximately $8.5 million of additional interest expense in 2013 in connection with debt incurred for the acquisition of those vessels.

During 2012, we dry-docked four vessels and incurred considerable transit expenses associated with the dry-docking in Asia of the three vessels currently serving our east coast operations. Although we also intend to dry-dock four of our vessels currently serving the west coast in 2013, the expenses will be significantly lower than in 2012 due to the much shorter transit and out of service times for the west coast vessels.

We expect overhead savings associated with the reduction in our non-union workforce beyond the reductions associated with the Puerto Rico service change. These reductions will be partially offset by higher incentive-based and stock-based compensation, as well as other administrative expenses.

As a result of the above, we expect 2013 financial results to significantly exceed 2012 results, with adjusted EBITDA projected between $85.0 million and $97.0 million in 2013 versus the $66.0 million in 2012.

We remain focused on continuing liquidity improvements and believe we have ample liquidity to support our business plans. We expect total liquidity during 2013 to range between a low of approximately $30.0 million following payment in April of our semi-annual cash interest and principal obligations under the First Lien Notes, to a high of approximately $60.0 million at the end of 2013.

Use of Non-GAAP Measures

Horizon Lines reports its financial results in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). The company also believes that the presentation of certain non-GAAP measures, i.e., EBITDA, free cash flow and results excluding certain expenses and income, provides useful information for the understanding of its ongoing operations and enables investors to focus on period-over-period operating performance without the impact of significant special items. The company further feels these non-GAAP measures enhance the user's overall understanding of the company's current financial performance relative to past performance and provide a better baseline for modeling future earnings expectations. Non-GAAP measures are reconciled in the financial tables accompanying this press release. The company cautions that non-GAAP measures should be considered in addition to, but not as a substitute for, the company's reported GAAP results.  

Date Set For Annual Meeting of Stockholders

Horizon Lines also announced that it has established a record date for its 2013 meeting of stockholders.  The company's stockholders of record at the close of business on April 8, 2013, will be entitled to receive notice of the annual meeting and to vote upon matters considered at the meeting.  The annual meeting will be held at 11 a.m. local time on Thursday, June 6, 2013, in Charlotte, North Carolina.  Additional information regarding the annual meeting will be provided in the company's Notice of Annual Meeting, which is expected to be furnished to all stockholders of record in April 2013.

Note:  EBITDA is defined as net income plus net interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization.  We believe that EBITDA is a meaningful measure for investors as (i) EBITDA is a component of the measure used by our board of directors and management team to evaluate our operating performance  and (ii) EBITDA is a measure used by our management to facilitate internal comparisons to competitors' results and the marine container shipping industry in general. Adjusted EBITDA excludes certain charges in order to evaluate our operating performance, and when determining the payment of discretionary bonuses.
