Consolidated Results

Trinity Industries, Inc. reported net income attributable to Trinity stockholders of $84.2 million, or $0.55 per common diluted share, for the third quarter ended September 30, 2016. Net income for the same quarter of 2015 was $204.3 million, or $1.31 per common diluted share. Revenues for the third quarter of 2016 totaled $1.11 billion compared to revenues of $1.54 billion for the same quarter of 2015.

"Trinity’s financial results for the third quarter reflect reductions in year-over-year production volumes and product mix changes in our railcar and barge manufacturing businesses," said Timothy R. Wallace, Trinity's Chairman, CEO, and President. "Oversupply of railcars and barges in the North American market, combined with generally weak industrial demand drivers, continues to impact new order volumes. Our Construction Products Group and wind towers business performed well during the quarter."

Mr. Wallace added, "During the quarter, our railcar leasing operations generated solid results; however, total segment revenues and profitability decreased year-over-year as we did not conduct any sales of leased railcars."

"Our outlook for 2017 reflects year-over-year volume reductions in our railcar and barge manufacturing businesses as weak demand conditions are expected to persist. In this environment, we are focused on maintaining a strong cash position and liquid balance sheet which provide stability as we manage through what we anticipate could be a prolonged downturn for certain areas of our business," concluded Mr. Wallace.

Business Group Results

In the third quarter of 2016, the Rail Group reported revenues of $720.8 million compared to revenues of $1,073.4 million in the third quarter of 2015. Operating profit for the Rail Group was $103.6 million in the third quarter of 2016 compared to operating profit of $223.3 million in the third quarter of 2015. The decrease in revenues and profit was primarily due to lower railcar deliveries and changes in product mix. The Rail Group shipped 6,595 railcars and received orders for 1,260 railcars during the third quarter. The Rail Group had a backlog of $3.7 billion as of September 30, 2016, representing 34,870 railcars, compared to a backlog of $4.29 billion as of June 30, 2016, representing 40,205 railcars.

The Railcar Leasing and Management Services Group reported total revenues of $173.7 million in the third quarter of 2016 compared to total revenues of $249.2 million in the same quarter of 2015. Operating profit for this Group was $80.5 million in the third quarter of 2016 compared to operating profit of $158.2 million in the third quarter of 2015. The decrease in revenues and operating profit was primarily due to the absence of sales of leased railcars from the lease fleet during the third quarter of 2016. Supplemental information for the Leasing Group is provided in the accompanying tables.

The Inland Barge Group reported revenues of $98.9 million in the third quarter of 2016 compared to revenues of $164.8 million in the third quarter of 2015. Operating profit for this Group was $11.7 million in the third quarter of 2016 compared to $28.1 million in the third quarter of 2015. The decrease in revenues and operating profit compared to the same quarter last year was primarily due to lower barge deliveries and changes in product mix. As of September 30, 2016, the Inland Barge Group had a backlog of $177.3 million compared to a backlog of $251.0 million as of June 30, 2016.

The Energy Equipment Group reported revenues of $241.7 million in the third quarter of 2016 compared to revenues of $289.5 million in the same quarter of 2015. The decrease in revenues compared to the same quarter last year was due to lower delivery volumes in the utility structures business and other product lines partially offset by higher delivery volumes in the wind towers business. Operating profit for the third quarter of 2016 was $31.2 million compared to $44.8 million in the same quarter last year primarily due to lower profit from our utility structures and other businesses partially offset by higher profit in our wind towers business. The backlog for wind towers as of September 30, 2016 was $1.0 billion compared to a backlog of $1.1 billion as of June 30, 2016.

The Construction Products Group reported revenues of $139.8 million in the third quarter of 2016 compared to revenues of $154.8 million in the third quarter of 2015. Operating profit for the third quarter of 2016 increased to $23.8 million compared to operating profit of $19.9 million in the third quarter of 2015. Revenues decreased compared to the same quarter last year primarily as a result of lower volumes in our Highway Products business. Operating profit for the Group increased in the third quarter of 2016 primarily as a result of improved performance in our Aggregates business.

Cash and Liquidity

At September 30, 2016, the Company had cash, cash equivalents, and short-term marketable securities of $842.5 million. When combined with capacity under committed credit facilities, the Company had approximately $2.1 billion of available liquidity at the end of the third quarter.

Share Repurchase

There were no shares repurchased during the third quarter of 2016 under the Company's current share repurchase authorization. Year to date, the Company repurchased 2,070,600 shares of common stock at a cost of $34.7 million leaving $215.4 million remaining under its current authorization through December 31, 2017.

Earnings Guidance

Fourth Quarter 2016

For the fourth quarter of 2016, the Company anticipates earnings of between $0.30 and $0.40 per common diluted share. This results in full year 2016 earnings guidance of between approximately $2.10 and $2.20 per common diluted share compared to its previous guidance of between $2.00 and $2.30 per share. The reduction in the top-end of full year guidance results from the Company’s expectation that it will not conduct sales of leased railcars it owns during the fourth quarter. The Company's earnings guidance compares to fourth quarter and full year 2015 earnings per common diluted share of $1.30 and $5.08, respectively.

First Half 2017

The Company’s guidance for the first half of 2017 is based on current information and market conditions as well as what is anticipated in the near-term. The range of earnings provided relates to the Company’s operations and does not include earnings from sales of leased railcars at this time. The Company expects to conduct sales of leased railcars in 2017. However, due to the transactional nature of these sales, the level and timing of such earnings are difficult to predict. In conjunction with the announcement of its fourth quarter 2016 earnings in February, the Company expects to have more insight into the sales of leased railcars and will provide an update.

For the first half of 2017, the Company anticipates earnings per common diluted share of between $0.45 and $0.60, compared to first half 2016 earnings of $1.25 per share. First half 2016 earnings included $0.21 per share from sales of leased railcars. The Company’s guidance assumes significant year-over-year volume reductions in its railcar and barge manufacturing businesses. The Company expects to provide full year 2017 earnings guidance in conjunction with its fourth quarter 2016 earnings announcement.

At this time, based on the level of order inquiries and scheduled backlog production, the Rail Group expects first half 2017 deliveries to be approximately 7,000 to 8,000 railcars compared to first half 2016 deliveries of 13,210.

Actual results in 2016 and 2017 may differ from present expectations and could be impacted by a number of factors including, among others, customer demand for the Company's products; the operating leverage and efficiencies that can be achieved by the Company's manufacturing businesses; the costs associated with aligning manufacturing production capacity with demand; the volume and level of profitability associated with the sales of leased railcars; the dilutive impact of the convertible notes related to changes in the Company's stock price; and the impact of weather conditions on our operations and scheduled shipments.

* Not meaningful

(1) The Company recognizes sales of railcars from the lease fleet which have been owned by the lease fleet for one year or less as revenue. Sales of railcars from the lease fleet which have been owned by the lease fleet for more than one year are recognized as a net gain or loss from the disposal of a long-term asset.

(2) Depreciation, maintenance and compliance, and rent expense are components of operating profit. Amortization of deferred profit on railcars sold from the Rail Group to the Leasing Group is included in the operating profit of the Leasing Group resulting in the recognition of depreciation expense based on the Company's original manufacturing cost of the railcars. Interest expense is not a component of operating profit and includes the effect of hedges.

Reconciliation of EBITDA

(in millions)
(unaudited)
 

“EBITDA” is defined as net income plus interest expense, income taxes, and depreciation and amortization including goodwill impairment charges. EBITDA is not a calculation based on generally accepted accounting principles. The amounts included in the EBITDA calculation are, however, derived from amounts included in the historical consolidated statements of operations data. In addition, EBITDA should not be considered as an alternative to net income or operating income as an indicator of our operating performance, or as an alternative to operating cash flows as a measure of liquidity. We believe EBITDA assists investors in comparing a company’s performance on a consistent basis without regard to depreciation and amortization, which can vary significantly depending upon many factors. However, the EBITDA measure presented in this press release may not always be comparable to similarly titled measures by other companies due to differences in the components of the calculation.
