29 Days ago

Second Quarter 2019 Highlights (all metrics compared to second quarter 2018 unless otherwise noted)

  • Total revenues of $627.5 million, up $8.4 million, or 1%
  • Operating income of $58.4 million, up 15%; non-GAAP adjusted operating income of $59.2 million, up 1%
  • Operating margin of 9.3%, up 110 basis points (bps); non-GAAP adjusted operating margin of 9.4%, down 10 bps
  • Diluted EPS of $0.62, up 17%; non-GAAP adjusted diluted EPS of $0.63, up 3%

OMAHA, Neb., July 25, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Werner Enterprises, Inc. (NASDAQ: WERN), one of the nation’s largest transportation and logistics companies, today reported financial results for second quarter ended June 30, 2019.

Total revenues for the quarter increased 1% to $627.5 million versus the prior year quarter, primarily attributable to dedicated fleet expansion, higher contractual rates, and lane mix changes.

Operating income of $58.4 million increased $7.7 million, or 15%. Operating margin of 9.3% increased 110 basis points due to revenue increases that exceeded cost increases, which benefited from a newer fleet and low driver turnover, as well as the $11.3 million accrual of insurance and claims expense in second quarter 2018 related to a previously disclosed May 2018 jury verdict. On a non-GAAP basis, adjusted operating income of $59.2 million increased $0.7 million, or 1%. Adjusted operating margin of 9.4% declined 10 basis points from 9.5% for the same quarter last year.

Interest expense of $1.4 million was $0.9 million higher than the same quarter a year ago due primarily to additional borrowings to pay a $261.1 million special dividend in June 2019. The effective income tax rate during the quarter was 25.2% compared to a 24.8% effective income tax rate in second quarter 2018.

Net income of $43.3 million increased 13%. On a non-GAAP basis, adjusted net income was $43.9 million  compared to $44.1 million for the same quarter last year. Diluted earnings per share (EPS) for the quarter of $0.62 increased 17%. Diluted EPS in second quarter 2019 included a $0.01 per share insurance and claims accrual for interest on a previously disclosed May 2018 jury verdict that we are appealing. On a non-GAAP basis, adjusted EPS of $0.63 increased 3% from $0.61 for second quarter 2018. Diluted EPS in second quarter 2018 included a $0.12 per share accrual of insurance and claims expense (including interest) related to the same May 2018 jury verdict. During second quarter 2018, we also realized a $0.04 gain on the sale of real estate.

“We are very pleased to report adjusted earnings per share growth of 3%, despite comparing to a very strong second quarter 2018 that produced 90% adjusted earnings growth due to unusually strong freight demand and pricing,” said Derek J. Leathers, President and Chief Executive Officer. “The strength of our diversified portfolio, our new truck and trailer fleet, increasingly experienced drivers and our committed Werner team led to our superior performance.”

Other Noteworthy Development

As previously noted, we are appealing a large adverse jury verdict rendered in May 2018. As such, we accrued $0.8 million of insurance and claims expense, or $0.01 per share, during the second quarter of 2019 for post-judgment interest related to this jury verdict. Interest is accrued at $0.4 million per month until such time as the outcome of our appeal is finalized, excluding months where the plaintiffs have requested an extension of time to respond to our appeal. To-date the plaintiffs have requested extensions for the months of June and July 2019.

Truckload Transportation Services (TTS) Segment

  • Revenues of $480.0 million increased $9.7 million, or 2%
  • Operating income of $51.7 million increased $8.2 million, or 19%; non-GAAP adjusted operating income of $52.4 million decreased $2.2 million, or 4%
  • Operating margin of 10.8% increased 160 basis points from 9.2%; non-GAAP adjusted operating margin of 10.9% decreased 70 basis points from 11.6%
  • Average segment trucks in service totaled 7,937, an increase of 389 trucks year over year
  • Dedicated unit trucks at quarter end totaled 4,580, or 58% of the total TTS segment fleet, compared to 4,380 trucks, or 57%, a year ago

Revenues increased 2% due to a 5.2% increase in average trucks in service, partially offset by a 1.0%  decrease in average revenues per truck and a $5.5 million decrease in fuel surcharge revenues. The average revenues per truck decrease was due primarily to a decrease in average miles per truck, partially offset by an increase in average revenues per total mile. The increase in average revenues per total mile was due primarily to higher contractual rates, dedicated fleet expansion and lane mix changes. The following factors all contributed to lower average miles per truck: (i) a below average seasonal freight market in second quarter 2019 compared to an unusually strong seasonal freight market in second quarter 2018, (ii) growth in Dedicated which has lower miles per truck and a shorter length of haul (iii) fewer team driver trucks and (iv) southern U.S. border security crossing delays affecting about one quarter of our One-Way Truckload revenues.

During the second quarter, freight demand in our One-Way Truckload fleet was seasonally below average and well below the unusually strong freight demand of second quarter 2018, which was aided by two December 2017 mandates. Tax reform incentives strengthened second quarter 2018 freight volumes while the electronic hours of service requirement limited truck and driver capacity in second quarter 2018.

Due to growth in company trucks and a decline in independent contractor trucks during the quarter, company truck miles increased by approximately 4.8 million miles and independent contractor miles decreased by approximately 0.2 million miles.

Comparisons of key financial metrics for the TTS segment, including operating ratios (actual and net of fuel surcharge revenues of $62.5 million and $68.0 million in second quarters 2019 and 2018, respectively, and $120.7 million and $128.8 million in the year-to-date 2019 and 2018 periods, respectively), are shown below. Fluctuating fuel prices and fuel surcharge revenues impact the total company operating ratio and the TTS segment’s operating ratio when fuel surcharges are reported on a gross basis as revenues versus netting against fuel expenses. Eliminating fuel surcharge revenues, which are generally a more volatile source of revenue, provides a more consistent basis for comparing the results of operations from period to period.

Werner Logistics Segment

  • Revenues of $130.9 million decreased $3.1 million or 2%
  • Gross margin of 16.1% increased 40 bps
  • Operating income of $5.2 million decreased $0.4 million, or 7%
  • Operating margin of 4.0% decreased 20 bps

Revenues in second quarter 2019 decreased year over year due to fewer project freight opportunities,  significantly lower year-over-year spot pricing trends and lower volumes in second quarter 2019. Logistics revenues improved sequentially in second quarter 2019 compared to first quarter 2019 by $13.5 million. Logistics revenues improved sequentially in second quarter 2018 by $16.6 million compared to first quarter 2018.

The gross margin percentage increased 40 bps to 16.1% due primarily to contractual pricing and improved capacity procurement in Truckload Logistics (formerly our Brokerage and Freight Management units within Werner Logistics). Our operating margin decreased 20 bps to 4.0% as other operating expenses grew 2% compared to gross profit which was flat.

Cash Flow and Capital Allocation

Cash flow from operations in second quarter 2019 was $81.6 million compared to $82.6 million in second quarter 2018, a decrease of 1%.

Net capital expenditures in second quarter 2019 were $79.0 million compared to $119.3 million in second quarter 2018, a decrease of 34%. Net capital expenditures have returned to normalized levels in 2019 after achieving our desired fleet age. We continue to invest in new trucks and trailers and our terminals to improve our driver experience, increase operational efficiency and more effectively manage our maintenance, safety and fuel costs. As a result of our continued investment, the average age of our truck fleet remains low by industry standards and decreased to 1.8 years as of June 30, 2019 compared to 1.9 years as of June 30, 2018.

Gains on sales of equipment were $4.5 million, or $0.05 per share, compared to $5.1 million, or $0.05 per share in the prior-year quarter. In second quarter 2018, we also had a $3.5 million gain on the sale of real estate, or $0.04 per share. Year over year, we sold 7% fewer trucks and 17% fewer trailers, and we realized higher average gains per truck and lower average gains per trailer. Pricing in the market for our used trucks and trailers began to moderate in the latter part of second quarter 2019. As a reminder, gains on sales of assets are reflected as a reduction of Other Operating Expenses in our income statement.

During the quarter, we repurchased 700,000 shares of common stock for a total cost of $21.8 million, or an average price of $31.08 per share. As of June 30, 2019, we had 4.3 million shares remaining under our new share repurchase authorization approved by the Board of Directors in May 2019.

In May 2019, we entered into new five-year, unsecured revolving credit facilities with Wells Fargo Bank, N.A. and BMO Harris Bank, N.A., replacing the previous credit facilities with both lenders. We had $390 million of debt outstanding as of June 30, 2019, and after considering letters of credit issued, had available remaining borrowing capacity of over $150 million. In early July 2019, we fixed the interest rate for $150 million of our debt that was outstanding as of June 30, 2019 at an average interest rate of 2.34% through May 2024.

As of June 30, 2019, we had $46 million of cash and over $1 billion of stockholders’ equity, after paying a $261 million special dividend in June 2019.

(1) During second quarter 2019, we accrued $767 of pre-tax insurance and claims expense for post-judgment interest and during second quarter 2018, we accrued $11,250 of pre-tax insurance and claims expense (including interest of $1,300) related to a previously disclosed excess adverse jury verdict rendered on May 17, 2018 in a lawsuit arising from a December 2014 accident. Additional information about the accident was included in our Current Report on Form 8-K dated May 17, 2018. Under our insurance policies in effect on the date of this accident, our maximum liability for this accident is $10.0 million (plus pre-judgment and post-judgment interest) with premium-based insurance coverage that exceeds the jury verdict amount. The Company is appealing this verdict. Management believes excluding the effect of this item provides a more useful comparison of our performance from period to period. This item is included in the Truckload Transportation Services segment in our Segment Information table.

(2) During second quarter 2018, we sold a parcel of real estate which resulted in a $3,495 pre-tax gain on sale. This item is included in our Segment Information table in “Corporate” operating income.

(3) Our definition of the non-GAAP measures adjusted operating income, adjusted net income and adjusted diluted earnings per share begins with (a) operating expenses, the most comparable GAAP measure. We subtract the insurance and claims jury verdict expense accrual and related interest and subtract the gain on sale of real estate from (a) to arrive at adjusted operating expenses, which we subtract from operating revenues to arrive at (b) adjusted operating income. We subtract (c) total other expense (income) from (b) adjusted operating income to arrive at (d) adjusted income before income taxes. We calculate adjusted income tax expense (benefit) by applying the incremental income tax rate excluding discrete items to the net pre-tax adjustments and adding this additional income tax to actual income tax expense. We then subtract adjusted income tax expense from adjusted income before income taxes to arrive at adjusted net income. The adjusted net income is divided by the diluted shares outstanding to calculate the adjusted diluted earnings per share.
