Hub Group, Inc. Reports Record Second Quarter 2012 Earnings

19 Jul, 2012, 16:00 ET from Hub Group, Inc.

DOWNERS GROVE, Ill., July 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Hub Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: HUBG) today announced financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2012.

Hub Group reported record net income of $16.9 million for the second quarter ended June 30, 2012, an increase of 18% compared to the second quarter of 2011.  Diluted earnings per share for the second quarter of 2012 was $0.46.

Hub Group's second quarter 2011 pre-tax income included approximately $750,000 of costs related to Mode Transportation integration and Hub's Truck Brokerage restructuring.  Excluding the effects of these costs, non-GAAP earnings per share was $0.40 for the 2011 second quarter (see table below).  Earnings per share increased 15% when compared with the non-GAAP earnings per share in the prior year period. 

The Hub segment's revenue increased 6% to $596 million.  Second quarter intermodal revenue increased 9% to $432 million.  The increase was attributable to a 9% volume increase.  Truck brokerage revenue decreased 11% to $80 million this quarter.  Second quarter Unyson Logistics revenue increased 13% to $84 million.  The Hub segment's operating income was $24.9 million

The Mode segment's revenue increased 1% to $194 million for the second quarter.  Operating income was $2.9 million

Hub Group ended the quarter with $52 million in cash.

"Hub Group continues to execute well in a tough economic climate," said David P. Yeager, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.

In accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), reported earnings per share include the after-tax impact of the items identifiable in this table. For internal purposes, Hub excludes these items from results when evaluating operating performance. This table and Hub's internal use of non-GAAP earnings per share are not intended to imply, and should not be interpreted as implying, that non-GAAP earnings per share is a better measure of performance than GAAP earnings per share.
