WARREN, Mich., July 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Universal Logistics Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: ULH) announced today the planned release of its second quarter 2016 financial results after the market closes on Thursday, July 28, 2016.
Based on currently available information, Universal expects to report income from operations in the range of $16.2 million to $18.1 million, on total operating revenues anticipated to range from $271.0 million to $281.0 million. This compares to $22.9 million of operating income in the second quarter of 2015 on revenues totaling $295.0 million. Universal also anticipates earnings per diluted share in the range of $0.31 to $0.35 for the second quarter of 2016, compared to $0.44 per share in second quarter 2015.
Sequentially, Universal expects to report improved financial results for the second quarter of 2016 compared to the first quarter of 2016 and, except with respect to its support of the heavy truck market, expects its value-added services to continue to deliver strong financial results. Despite the positive momentum, the challenging freight market that persists has put downward pressure on total top-line operating revenues and operating income when compared to the same period last year. "We will continue to focus on maintaining market share, executing our sales strategy and controlling costs as we manage through this difficult freight environment," stated Universal's Chief Executive Officer, Jeff Rogers.
