Greenbrier Reports Fiscal Second Quarter EPS of $0.45 and Announces Strategies to Enhance Margins and Improve Capital Efficiency

LAKE OSWEGO, Ore., April 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Greenbrier Companies (NYSE: GBX) today reported results for its second quarter ended February 28, 2013.

Second Quarter Highlights                                                                                                      

  • Net earnings for the second quarter were $13.8 million, or $.45 per diluted share, on revenue of $423.2 million.
  • Adjusted EBITDA for the quarter was $36.2 million, or 8.6% of revenue.
  • Net debt was reduced by $55 million during the quarter, driven by strong quarterly earnings and working capital improvements.
  • New railcar deliveries were 2,700 units in the second quarter.
  • Since September 1, 2012, the beginning of the Company's fiscal year, Greenbrier has received orders for 9,600 railcar units valued at over $1 billion, of which 1,400 units were received during the first quarter, 4,500 units during the second quarter, and 3,700 units subsequent to the February 28, 2013 quarter end.
  • New railcar manufacturing backlog as of February 28, 2013 was 11,700 units with an estimated value of $1.30 billion (average unit sale price of $111,000), compared to 9,700 units with an estimated value of $1.11 billion (average unit sale price of $114,000) as of November 30, 2012. 
  • Marine backlog totaled $9 million as of February 28, 2013. Additionally, we are party to a letter of intent for 15 barges valued at $60 million, subject to significant permitting and other conditions.

Strategic Initiatives

  • Company unveils strategic plans to increase gross margins by at least 200 basis points and reduce capital employed by $100 million by the end of fiscal 2014.
  • During the quarter, the Company reached agreement to sell substantially all the assets of its non-core roller bearings parts operation and acquired an additional repair facility in Poland.

William A. Furman, president and chief executive officer said, "Our business momentum continues to improve, validating the strength of our integrated business model.  Our strategy is to diversify our product offerings, shift production to our lower cost manufacturing footprint in Mexico, and increase throughput in our lease syndication and management services businesses.  Since September 1, 2012, we have received diverse orders for 9,600 railcars in North America and Europe valued at over $1 billion."

Furman continued, "Our integrated model differentiates Greenbrier from industry peers.  However, we can extract more value out of our model and further enhance overall performance in each of our operating segments through a series of initiatives designed to improve capital efficiency and enhance margins.  We intend to liberate $100 million of capital by no later than the end of our fiscal 2014 by selling non-core or underperforming operations, particularly in our underperforming Wheel Services, Refurbishment & Parts segment, reducing working capital and refining our leasing model to take more of our assets and debt off the balance sheet in a tax efficient manner.  We intend to redeploy this $100 million of liberated capital to invest in new opportunities, pay down debt, or return to shareholders.  The announced sale of the assets of our roller bearings parts operation is the first of many steps in this regard."

"We have set a target to grow gross margins by at least 200 bps to 13.5% of revenue by the fourth quarter of our fiscal 2014.  This improvement equates to about $40 million of incremental EBITDA on an annualized forward run rate.  Our capital efficiency initiatives, coupled with specifically identified cost reduction and efficiency improvement initiatives, and currently favorable industry and backlog tailwinds are expected to drive this improvement.  Assuming economic and industry fundamentals continue to be favorable, we believe these actions will comprise the first step of a multi-phase campaign to improve margins and capital efficiency and enhance Greenbrier's return on invested capital and shareholder value," Furman concluded.

Mark Rittenbaum, chief financial officer, also noted, "In order to provide more granularity on the performance of each of our segments, we expect to begin providing operating margin by business segment starting in the first fiscal quarter of 2014.  We will also periodically report the progress made on our initiatives starting after our third fiscal quarter of 2013."

"SAFE HARBOR" STATEMENT UNDER THE PRIVATE SECURITIES LITIGATION REFORM ACT OF 1995:  This presentation may contain forward-looking statements, including statements regarding expected new railcar production volumes and schedules, expected customer demand for the Company's products and services, plans to increase manufacturing capacity, new railcar delivery volumes and schedules, growth in demand for the Company's railcar services and parts business, and the Company's strategic initiatives and future financial performance. Greenbrier uses words such as "anticipates," "believes,"  "forecast," "potential," "goal," "contemplates," "expects," "intends," "initiatives," "targets," "plans," "projects," "hopes," "seeks," "estimates," "could," "would," "will," "may," "can," "designed to," "foreseeable future" and similar expressions to identify forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance and are subject to certain risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from in the results contemplated by the forward-looking statements. Factors that might cause such a difference include, but are not limited to, reported backlog is not indicative of our financial results; turmoil in the credit markets and financial services industry; high levels of indebtedness and compliance with the terms of our indebtedness; write-downs of goodwill, intangibles and other assets in future periods; sufficient availability of borrowing capacity; fluctuations in demand for newly manufactured railcars or failure to obtain orders as anticipated in developing forecasts; loss of one or more significant customers; customer payment defaults or related issues; actual future costs and the availability of materials and a trained workforce; failure to design or manufacture new products or technologies or to achieve certification or market acceptance of new products or technologies; steel or specialty component price fluctuations and availability and scrap surcharges; changes in product mix and the mix between segments; labor disputes, energy shortages or operating difficulties that might disrupt manufacturing operations or the flow of cargo; production difficulties and product delivery delays as a result of, among other matters, changing technologies, production of new railcar types, or non-performance of subcontractors or suppliers; ability to obtain suitable contracts for the sale of leased equipment and risks related to car hire and residual values; difficulties associated with governmental regulation, including environmental liabilities; integration of current or future acquisitions; succession planning; all as may be discussed in more detail under the headings "Risk Factors" and "Forward Looking Statements" in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended August 31, 2012, and our other reports on file with the Securities and Exchange Commission.  Readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements, which reflect management's opinions only as of the date hereof. Except for any periodic progress reports on strategic initiatives, except as otherwise required by law, we do not assume any obligation to update any forward-looking statements.

Adjusted EBITDA is not a financial measure under generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). We define Adjusted EBITDA as earnings attributable to Greenbrier before interest and foreign exchange, income tax expense, depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA is a performance measurement tool commonly used by rail supply companies and Greenbrier. You should not consider Adjusted EBITDA in isolation or as a substitute for other financial statement data determined in accordance with GAAP. In addition, because Adjusted EBITDA is not a measure of financial performance under GAAP and is susceptible to varying calculations, the Adjusted EBITDA measure presented may differ from and may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies.

Economic EPS is not a financial measure under GAAP.  Economic EPS is used to measure the current economic impact of our Convertible Bonds due in 2018 that have a conversion strike price of $38.05/share, which exceeds our current stock price. We define Economic EPS as net earnings attributable to Greenbrier divided by the sum of weighted average basic common shares outstanding, plus the dilutive effect of warrants.  This calculation excludes the dilutive effect of the shares underlying the 2018 bonds under the "if converted" method, which is included in the calculation of Diluted EPS.  You should not consider Economic EPS in isolation or as a substitute for other financial statement data determined in accordance with GAAP. In addition, because Economic EPS is not a measure of financial performance under GAAP and is susceptible to varying calculations, the Economic EPS measure presented may differ from and may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies.

 Diluted earnings per common share includes the outstanding warrants using the treasury stock

method and the dilutive effect of shares underlying the 2018 Convertible Notes using the "if converted"

method in which debt issuance and interest costs, net of tax, were added back to net earnings.

(1)

Adjusted EBITDA is not a financial measure under generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). We define Adjusted EBITDA as earnings attributable to Gr eenbrier before interest and foreign exchange, income tax expense, depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA is a performance measurement tool commonly used by rail supply companies and Greenbrier. You should not consider Adjusted EBITDA in isolation or as a substitute for other financial statement data determined in accordance with GAAP. In addition, because Adjusted EBITDA is not a measure of financial performance under GAAP and is susceptible to varying calculations, the Adjusted EBITDA measure presented may differ from and may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies.

Restricted stock grants are treated as outstanding when issued and are included in weighted average basic common shares outstanding when the Company is in a net earnings position.

(2)

The dilutive effect of the 2018 Convertible notes are included as they were considered dilutive under the "if converted" method as further discussed below. The dilutive effect of the 2026 Convertible notes was excluded from the share calculations as the stock price for each period presented was less than the initial conversion price of $48.05 and therefore considered anti-dilutive.

    

Dilutive EPS was calculated using the more dilutive of two approaches. The first approach includes the dilutive effect of outstanding warrants and shares underlying the 2026 Convertible notes in the share count using the treasury stock method. The second approach supplements the first by including the "if converted" effect of the 2018 Convertible notes issued in March 2011. Under the "if converted method" debt issuance and interest costs, both net of tax, associated with the convertible notes are added back to net earnings and the share count is increased by the shares underlying the convertible notes. The 2026 Convertible notes would only be included in the calculation of both approaches if the current stock price is greater than the initial conversion price of $48.05 using the treasury stock method.

Economic EPS is not a financial measure under GAAP. Economic EPS is used to measure the current economic impact of our Convertible Bonds due in 2018 that have a conversion strike price of $38.05/share, which exceeds our current stock price. We define Economic EPS as net earnings attributable to Greenbrier divided by the sum of weighted average basic common shares outstanding, plus the dilutive effect of warrants. This calculation excludes the dilutive effect of the shares underlying the 2018 bonds under the "if converted" method, which is included in the calculation of Diluted EPS. You should not consider Economic EPS in isolation or as a substitute for other financial statement data determined in accordance with GAAP. In addition, because Economic EPS is not a measure of financial performance under GAAP and is susceptible to varying calculations, the Economic EPS measure presented may differ from and may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies.
