CAI International, Inc. Reports Results for the First Quarter of 2013

SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- CAI International, Inc. (CAI) (NYSE: CAP), one of the world's leading lessors of intermodal freight containers, today reported results for the first quarter of 2013.

Highlights for the First Quarter of 2013

  • CAI reported rental revenue for the first quarter of 2013 of $46.6 million, an increase of 44% compared to the first quarter of 2012 and 4% compared to the fourth quarter of 2012, the 12th consecutive quarter of record rental revenue.
  • Net income attributable to CAI common stockholders for the first quarter of 2013 was $16.1 million, a 12% increase compared to $14.4 million for the first quarter of 2012. During the quarter CAI took a pre-tax charge of $1.1 million to write off deferred financing costs as a result of the refinancing of several of CAI's credit facilities which reduced rates and extended maturities. Excluding the write-off of these deferred financing costs and the related tax effects, net income attributable to CAI common stockholders for the first quarter of 2013 was $17.0 million, an 18% increase from the amount reported for the first quarter of 2012.
  • CAI reported net income attributable to CAI common stockholders for the first quarter of 2013 of $0.71 per fully diluted share, a 3% decrease compared to $0.73 for the first quarter of 2012. Excluding the write-off of deferred financing costs and the related tax effects, net income per share attributable to CAI common stockholders was $0.75, a 3% increase from the $0.73 reported in the first quarter of 2012.
  • During the quarter CAI purchased two portfolios from its managed fleet and entered into a sale leaseback transaction with a shipping customer for a total of approximately 66,000 TEUs ($82 million) of containers. The company also acquired approximately 29,000 TEUs of new containers ($72 million) during the quarter.
  • During March 2013, CAI entered into a revised revolving credit facility with a commitment of up to $760 million, extended the term of the facility five years and reduced the interest rate. In addition, CAI issued $229 million of ten year asset-backed notes at a fixed rate of 3.35%. The proceeds from the notes were used to partially pay down both the revolving credit facility and one of the Company's term loans. As a result, CAI wrote off $1.1 million of previously deferred financing costs during the quarter.

Net income attributable to CAI common stockholders for the first quarter of 2013 was $16.1 million, a 12% increase compared to $14.4 million for the first quarter of 2012. Net income per fully diluted share attributable to CAI common stockholders for the first quarter of 2013 was $0.71, a 3% decrease compared to $0.73 for the first quarter of 2012.

Total revenue for the first quarter of 2013 was a record $51.0 million, compared to $39.4 million for the first quarter of 2012, an increase of 29%. Container rental revenue for the first quarter of 2013 was $46.6 million, compared to $32.5 million for the first quarter of 2012. The increase in container rental revenue was primarily due to an increase in the average number of TEUs of owned containers on lease. Management fee revenue for the first quarter of 2013 was $2.2 million, compared to $4.2 million for the first quarter of 2012, reflecting the reduction in the size of the managed fleet as CAI has acquired a number of its previously managed portfolios during the last twelve months. CAI recognized a gain on the sale of container portfolios of $1.3 million during the first quarter of 2012; no portfolio sales were made in the first quarter of 2013. Finance lease income for the first quarter of 2013 increased to $2.1 million, from $1.5 million in the first quarter of 2012, as a result of new finance leases entered into during the last twelve months. As expected, average fleet utilization decreased slightly due to normal seasonality from 93.4% in the fourth quarter of 2012 to 92.2% in the first quarter of 2013.

Victor Garcia, Chief Executive Officer of CAI, commented, "We continued to report strong results in the first quarter of 2013. During the quarter we successfully completed the purchase of two managed portfolios for a total purchase price of $68 million, which will add to our financial results over the remainder of the year. We were also very active in the refinancing of our existing debt. As a result of our refinancing efforts we wrote off $1.1 million of deferred financing costs but in the process have now fixed interest rates on 57% of our outstanding debt at an average rate of 3.3% and have significantly decreased the cost of our floating rate debt under our revolving credit facility. Excluding the write-off of $1.1 million of deferred financing costs associated with our refinancing activities, our net income was $17.0 million, an 18% increase from the $14.4 million reported in the first quarter of 2012."

Mr. Garcia continued, "Although utilization, as expected, decreased slightly in the first quarter, it has stabilized in recent weeks, and we remain optimistic about the overall utilization of our fleet for the remainder of 2013 as we are now approaching what has historically been the seasonally stronger part of the year. In terms of investment in new equipment, we still expect 2013 to be a year in which there will be ongoing demand from our customers, however, thus far, inquiries from customers for new container equipment have been slower than we had expected. The extent of the demand for new equipment is uncertain and will depend in part on the strength of overall trade growth and the level of equipment purchases by our customers. Secondary prices of containers remain strong, which we expect to continue through the remainder of the year."

This press release contains non-GAAP financial measures, and includes net income and earnings per share adjusted to exclude the write-off of certain deferred financing costs and related tax effects.

Non-GAAP financial measures are not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for GAAP financial measures. To the extent this release contains historical non-GAAP financial measures, we have also provided a reconciliation to the corresponding GAAP financial measures for comparative purposes.
