“In the wake of the challenges created by the COVID-19 pandemic, I applaud the commitment of Trinity’s people to deliver high-quality products and services to our customers and continue our progress in effecting the transformation of the Company’s rail-focused operating strategy,” said Jean Savage, Trinity’s CEO and President. “Trinity’s third quarter performance reflects solid execution against numerous headwinds including competitive pricing, declining deliveries, and difficult decisions in rightsizing our operations. Through it all, Trinity’s rail platform, which generates significant cash flow, and our strong balance sheet have enabled us to manage through the current environment from a position of strength.”

“Railcar loadings rebounded during the third quarter from the historical declines earlier in the year resulting from economic shutdowns amid the coronavirus outbreak. However, market uncertainty continues to cloud demand for railcars as much of the economy remains under pressure. We continue to see a good pipeline of inquiries for available railcars – new and existing – from strategic buyers and owners of railcar assets, and we remain cautiously optimistic regarding the trajectory of demand heading into next year. Average lease rates and the utilization of our lease fleet remained essentially flat from the second quarter, while lease rate renewal pricing continued to experience negative headwinds. Rail manufacturing received orders for 2,000 railcars during the third quarter, composed primarily of larger, complex transactions that leverage the strength of Trinity’s rail platform and our ability to tailor solutions for our customers.”

“Our business leaders are taking additional actions to optimize our operating structure and our balance sheet. During the third quarter, Trinity transitioned its U.S. logistics business and outsourced these services to third-party providers, as well as completed the realignment of its organizational structure. The Company also completed the $350 million share repurchase authorization, our second such completion in the past two years, with the purchase of approximately $90 million during the quarter. Earlier this week, Trinity’s Board approved a new $250 million share repurchase authorization that runs through the end of 2021.”

Ms. Savage concluded, “As we move forward with the execution of our long-term strategy, we have redefined our purpose to ‘Delivering Goods for the Good of All.’ We are proud of the essential role our railcars play in sustaining our communities, and our strategic initiatives are aimed at enhancing the rail industry's modal advantage while improving our returns on the business. We are strongly committed to accelerating the financial performance of the Company and unlocking value for our shareholders through a disciplined capital allocation framework.”

Additional Business Items

Income Tax Adjustments

  • As a result of the reinstatement of the tax-loss carryback provisions in recent tax legislation, the Company recognized an additional tax benefit in the third quarter of $8.6 million, or $0.07 per common diluted share. The associated income tax losses were primarily due to accelerated tax depreciation associated with our investment in the lease fleet.
  • The Company’s tax rate was a benefit of 34.9% for the quarter and a benefit of 69.5% for the year. These rates differed from the U.S. statutory rate primarily as a result of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (the "CARES Act").

Liquidity and Capital Source Updates

  • In July 2020, Trinity Rail Leasing 2017 LLC, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company, issued $225.0 million of additional promissory notes through its existing loan agreement. The promissory notes bear interest at LIBOR plus 1.50%. Net proceeds received from the transaction were used to repay borrowings under TILC's secured warehouse credit facility and under the Company’s revolving credit facility, and for general corporate purposes.
  • In July 2020, we amended our revolving credit facility to increase the maximum leverage ratio through December 31, 2021 to provide near-term covenant flexibility.
  • In October 2020, Trinity Rail Leasing 2018 LLC (“TRL-2018”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company, issued $155.5 million of Series 2020-1 Class A Secured Railcar Equipment Notes (the “2020-1 Notes”) under an existing indenture. The 2020-1 Notes bear interest at a fixed rate of 1.96% per annum and have a stated final maturity date of 2050. In a separate transaction during October 2020, TRL-2018 redeemed its Series 2018-1 Class A-1 Secured Railcar Equipment Notes, of which $153.1 million was outstanding at the redemption date. The fixed interest rate for these notes was 3.82% per annum.
  • In October 2020, our Board of Directors authorized a new share repurchase program effective October 23, 2020 through December 31, 2021. The new share repurchase program authorizes the Company to repurchase up to $250.0 million of its common stock.
  • The Company's income tax receivable at the end of the third quarter was $485 million.

Cost Optimization

  • In connection with the Company's ongoing assessment of future needs to support our rail-focused strategy and to optimize the performance of the business, the Company recognized pre-tax restructuring charges totaling $10.5 million year to date, primarily from employee transition costs and the write-down of our corporate headquarters campus, partially offset by a net gain on the disposition of a non-operating facility and certain related assets.
    • Restructuring charges for the third quarter of 2020 totaled $4.7 million, which included $3.4 million for severance costs, $0.7 million in asset write-downs from transportation equipment related to our logistics operations, and $0.6 million of contract termination costs.
  • Trinity currently anticipates that the structural and cyclical administrative cost reductions completed thus far in 2020 will generate approximately $80 million in future annualized cost savings.
    • As the Company continues to reposition its operating structure and drive platform efficiency, we anticipate identifying further cost savings opportunities, which could lead to additional restructuring charges.
  • In connection with the Company's previously communicated pension plan termination, the plan is expected to be fully settled in the fourth quarter of 2020. Upon settlement, the Company currently expects to recognize a pre-tax non-cash pension settlement charge totaling between $145 million to $160 million, which includes the recognition of all pre-tax actuarial losses accumulated in Accumulated Other Comprehensive Loss.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We have included financial measures compiled in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") and certain non-GAAP measures in this earnings press release to provide management and investors with additional information regarding our financial results. Non-GAAP measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for our reporting results prepared in accordance with GAAP and, as calculated, may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures for other companies. For each non-GAAP financial measure, a reconciliation to the most comparable GAAP measure has been included in the accompanying tables. When forward-looking non-GAAP measures are provided, quantitative reconciliations to the most directly comparable GAAP measures are not provided because management cannot, without unreasonable effort, predict the timing and amounts of certain items included in the computations of each of these measures. These factors include, but are not limited to: the product mix of expected railcar deliveries; the timing and amount of significant transactions and investments, such as railcar sales from the lease fleet, capital expenditures, and returns of capital to shareholders; and the amount and timing of certain other items outside the normal course of our core business operations, such as restructuring activities and non-cash pension plan termination charges.

Trinity is required to utilize the two-class method of calculating earnings per share ("EPS") as a result of unvested restricted shares that have non-forfeitable rights to dividends and are, therefore, considered to be participating securities. The calculation of EPS using the two-class method excludes income attributable to these participating securities from the numerator and excludes the dilutive impact of those shares from the denominator; therefore, the two-class method may result in a lower EPS than is calculated from the face of the income statement. There were no restricted shares and stock options included in the computation of diluted EPS for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 as we incurred a loss for the period, and any effect on loss per common share would have been antidilutive.

(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) Includes revenues associated with sales-type leases of $26.3 million and $60.5 million for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019, respectively.

(3) Operating profit includes: depreciation; maintenance and compliance; rent; and selling, engineering, and administrative expenses. Amortization of deferred profit on railcars sold from the Rail Products 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.

(4) Effective January 1, 2020, we revised the estimated useful lives and salvage values of certain railcar types in our lease fleet. This change in estimate resulted in a decrease in depreciation expense in the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020 of approximately $7.7 million and $23.1 million, respectively. This decrease was partially offset by higher depreciation associated with growth in the lease fleet.

(5) As a result of the impairment of long-lived assets related to our small cube covered hopper railcars recorded in the second quarter of 2020, our quarterly depreciation expense beginning in the third quarter of 2020 has decreased by approximately $3.5 million.

Reconciliations of Non-GAAP Measures

Adjusted Operating Results

We have supplemented the presentation of our reported GAAP operating profit (loss), interest expense, net, provision (benefit) for income taxes, income (loss) from continuing operations, net income (loss) attributable to Trinity Industries, Inc., diluted weighted average shares outstanding and diluted income (loss) from continuing operations per common share attributable to Trinity Industries, Inc. with non-GAAP measures that adjust the GAAP measures to exclude the impact of restructuring activities, impairment of long-lived assets, early redemption of debt, the income tax effects of the CARES Act and certain other non-recurring transactions or events (as applicable).These non-GAAP measures are derived from amounts included in our GAAP financial statements and are reconciled to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures in the tables below. Management believes that these measures are useful to both management and investors for analyzing the performance of our business without the impact of certain non-recurring items. Non-GAAP measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for our reporting results prepared in accordance with GAAP and, as calculated, may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures for other companies.

(1) The effective tax rate for impairment of long-lived assets, restructuring activities, and the early redemption of debt is before consideration of the CARES Act.

(3) Represents the portion of the non-cash impairment of long-lived asset charge attributable to the noncontrolling interest, for which Trinity does not provide income taxes.

(4) GAAP diluted weighted average shares outstanding excludes 1.2 million shares for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 since the Company was in a net loss position for the period. When adjusting for the items above, these shares become dilutive.

Free Cash Flow

Free Cash Flow before Capital expenditures – leasing ("Free Cash Flow") is a non-GAAP financial measure and is defined as net cash provided by operating activities from continuing operations as computed in accordance with GAAP, plus cash proceeds from sales of leased railcars owned more than one year at the time of sale, less cash payments for manufacturing capital expenditures and dividends. We believe Free Cash Flow is useful to both management and investors as it provides a relevant measure of liquidity and a useful basis for assessing our ability to fund our operations and repay our debt. Free Cash Flow is reconciled to net cash provided by operating activities from continuing operations, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, in the following table. Non-GAAP measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for our reporting results prepared in accordance with GAAP and, as calculated, may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures for other companies.

EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA

“EBITDA” is defined as income (loss) from continuing operations plus interest expense, income taxes, and depreciation and amortization expense. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as EBITDA plus non-cash impairment of long-lived assets and restructuring activities. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are non-GAAP financial measures; however, the amounts included in these calculations are derived from amounts included in our GAAP financial statements. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are reconciled to net income (loss), the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, in the following table. This information is provided to assist management and investors in making meaningful comparisons of our operating performance between periods. We believe EBITDA is a useful measure for analyzing the performance of our business. We also believe that EBITDA is commonly reported and widely used by investors and other interested parties as a measure of a company’s operating performance and debt servicing ability because it assists in comparing performance on a consistent basis without regard to capital structure, depreciation or amortization (which can vary significantly depending on many factors). EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as alternatives to net income as indicators of our operating performance, or as alternatives to operating cash flows as measures of liquidity. Non-GAAP measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for our reporting results prepared in accordance with GAAP and, as calculated, may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures for other companies.
