CAI International, Inc. Reports Record Results for the First Quarter of 2012

SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- CAI International, Inc. (CAI) (NYSE:CAP), one of the world's leading lessors of intermodal freight containers, today reported record results for the first quarter of 2012.

Highlights for the First Quarter of 2012

  • CAI reported record net income attributable to CAI common stockholders for the first quarter of 2012 of $0.73 per fully diluted share, a 12% increase compared to $0.65 for the first quarter of 2011 and an 11% increase compared to $0.66 per fully diluted share in the fourth quarter of 2011.
  • Container rental revenue for the first quarter of 2012 increased 45% compared to the first quarter of 2011 and 2% compared to the fourth quarter of 2011.
  • During the quarter CAI purchased and leased out approximately 33,000 TEUs, or $54 million, of containers. The company has an additional $185 million of containers on order from manufacturers, of which more than $100 million is committed to be on lease with customers during the second quarter of 2012.
  • An increase in residual value estimates used in CAI's depreciation calculation reduced depreciation expense by $1.7 million for the first quarter of 2012 and contributed $0.07 to net income per share attributable to CAI common stockholders. The first quarter of 2011 benefited from the recovery of a $0.9 million previously reserved receivable, representing $0.04 per share.

Net income attributable to CAI common stockholders was $14.4 million for the first quarter of 2012, compared to $12.8 million for the first quarter of 2011, an increase of 12%.

Total revenue for the first quarter of 2012 was a record $39.4 million, compared to $27.7 million for the first quarter of 2011, an increase of 42%. Container rental revenue for the first quarter of 2012 was $32.5 million, compared to $22.4 million for the first quarter of 2011. The increase in container rental revenue was primarily due to a 34% increase in the average number of TEUs of owned containers on lease and to a 10% increase in the average owned fleet per diem rates compared to the first quarter of 2011. Management fee revenue for the first quarter of 2012 was $4.2 million, compared to $3.5 million for the first quarter of 2011. CAI recognized a gain on the sale of container portfolios of $1.3 million during the first quarter of 2012, compared to $1.4 million in the first quarter of 2011. Finance lease income for the first quarter of 2012 increased to $1.5 million, from $0.4 million in the first quarter of 2011. As expected, average fleet utilization decreased slightly due to normal seasonality from 96.5% in the fourth quarter of 2011 to 94.2% in the first quarter of 2012. Based on customer bookings already in place for available assets, it is expected that utilization will increase during the second quarter.

During the quarter, CAI conducted a review of its historical equipment disposal activity and, as a result, made changes to the estimated residual values and useful lives of its major equipment types. The changes, which are set out below, were effective January 1, 2012. For the first quarter of 2012, the changes reduced depreciation expense by approximately $1.7 million, or $0.07 per fully diluted share.

Victor Garcia, Chief Executive Officer of CAI, commented, "We are very pleased with the performance of our company this quarter. We achieved strong revenue and earnings growth, generating $14.4 million of net income, a 12% increase compared to the first quarter of 2011. As a result of the continued strength in the used container market, we increased the residual values and useful lives of some of our container equipment at the beginning of the quarter. Excluding the benefit we gained from this change, and the one-time receivable recovery of $0.9 million we recorded in the first quarter of 2011, our net income increased by $0.9 million compared to the first quarter of 2011, or 5 cents per fully diluted share."

Mr. Garcia continued, "Although utilization has, as expected, decreased slightly in the first quarter, we remain optimistic about container demand for the remainder of 2012. We expect demand for containers to increase during the second quarter of 2012 based on bookings we have for both new equipment and for equipment at depots, leading to an improvement in the utilization of our fleet over the rest of the year. We are seeing increased demand for new containers by our customers, which has led to a steady increase in the price of new containers being asked by the manufacturers. As a result, we expect there to be an increased demand for depot equipment and continued strength in the used container resale market during 2012. Due to the limited supply of equipment for sale, we are looking to increase prices in some of the higher demand areas. We believe the current robust demand environment will continue for the remainder of the year, resulting in continued growth opportunities for our company."
