2012 First Quarter Results
In discussing the companys first quarter performance, Mark DiBlasi, President and CEO of Roadrunner, said,
Strong performance across all of our business segments generated first quarter revenue growth of 38.2% and net revenue growth of 70.5%. Our operating income growth of 93.2% outpaced revenue growth despite the effects of higher fuel prices on revenues and operating costs. Operating income for the first quarter of 2012 represented the best quarter in the history of the company. Our operating ratio improved 180 basis points to 93.8% from 95.6%.
LTL revenues increased $18.3 million, or 18.2%, from the prior year as a result of new customer growth, expansion into new markets, and existing customer growth in the first quarter. The new customer growth and market expansion during the first quarter also drove a tonnage increase of 11.0% over the prior year. Revenue per hundred-weight increased 6.2% over the prior year, including 2.3% related to fuel. Our LTL operating ratio improved to 92.9% in the first quarter from 95.2% in the first quarter of 2011. Our initiatives to penetrate new customers, expand into new geographic regions, build density and enhance productivity resulted in a net revenue margin improvement from 24.8% in the fourth quarter of 2011 to 25.8% in the first quarter of 2012. We expect these continued and new initiatives to improve our operating ratio as we move forward.
TL revenues grew by $43.5 million, or 79.6%, from the prior year. Revenues from our 2011 acquisitions accounted for $39.8 million of the increase, with the balance of $3.7 million representing organic growth of 6.7%. Organic growth in our refrigerated business was reduced by the impact of crop failures in the Northeast. The positive impact of the acquisitions and operating leverage associated with our revenue growth led to a 127.1% increase in our TL operating income and an improvement in our TL operating ratio to 94.2% from 95.4% in the first quarter of 2011.
For our TMS business, revenue grew $4.2 million, or 25.2%, from the prior year. Organic growth and pricing accounted for $3.5 million of the increase, with the balance related to our late February 2012 acquisition of Capital Transportation Logistics. The operating leverage associated with this growth led to a 67.7% increase in TMS operating income. Our TMS operating ratio improved to 89.3% from 92.0% in the first quarter of 2011.
2012 Second Quarter Guidance
In commenting on guidance for the second quarter of 2012, Peter Armbruster, CFO of Roadrunner, said, We anticipate our revenues for the second quarter to be in the range of $260 million to $275 million representing an increase of 25% to 32% from the second quarter of 2011. Further, we expect diluted income per share available to common stockholders to be between $0.30 and $0.33, compared to diluted income per share available to common stockholders of $0.24 in the prior year quarter.

For the TL segment, revenues increased 79.6% to $98.0 million for the first quarter of 2012 from $54.6 million for the first quarter of 2011.
