SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- CAI International, Inc. (CAP) (CAI) (NYSE:CAP), one of the worlds leading lessors of intermodal freight containers, today reported record results for the second quarter of 2012.
Highlights for the Second Quarter of 2012
- CAI reported record net income attributable to CAI common stockholders for the second quarter of 2012 of $0.77 per fully diluted share, a 40% increase compared to $0.55 for the second quarter of 2011.
- Rental revenue for the second quarter of 2012 increased 42% compared to the second quarter of 2011.
- CAI leased out approximately 45,000 TEUs of containers during the quarter, and purchased approximately 22,000 TEUs of containers from two managed portfolios for $27 million.
- CAIs year-to-date investment in rental equipment exceeds $350 million, of which $310 million is marine containers.
- During the quarter CAIs container fleet reached over 1 million TEUs.
- CAI closed an $80 million term debt facility, increased its revolving credit facility commitments to $465 million notes and completed an $85 million revolving credit facility for the acquisition of railcars.
- CAI purchased approximately 1,200 railcars for $41 million, all of which are on lease with an average lease term of 3 years. The company has commitments to purchase another $10 million of railcars and expects continued investment through the end of the year.
Net income attributable to CAI common stockholders was $15.1 million for the second quarter of 2012, compared to $10.9 million for the second quarter of 2011, an increase of 39%.
Total revenue for the second quarter of 2012 was a record $39.7 million, compared to $28.8 million for the second quarter of 2011, an increase of 38%. Rental revenue for the second quarter of 2012 was $35.1 million, compared to $24.7 million for the second quarter of 2011. The increase in rental revenue was primarily due to a 42% increase in the average number of TEUs of owned containers on lease compared to the second quarter of 2011. Management fee revenue for the second quarter of 2012 was $3.0 million, compared to $3.3 million for the second quarter of 2011. CAI sold no container portfolios during the second quarter of 2012, compared to recording a gain on sale of container portfolios of $0.3 million in the second quarter of 2011. Finance lease income for the second quarter of 2012 increased to $1.6 million, from $0.5 million in the second quarter of 2011, primarily due to new finance lease contracts entered into since July 1, 2011.
Average fleet utilization increased slightly from 94.2% in the first quarter of 2012 to 94.3% in the second quarter of 2012. Based on customer bookings already in place for available assets, it is expected that utilization will improve further during the third quarter.
During the quarter, CAI completed the purchase of approximately 1,200 used railcars. The total purchase price of $40.6 million was funded primarily by the Companys $85 million revolving credit facility that was entered into during the quarter. All railcars purchased during the quarter are on lease and are expected to positively impact CAIs revenue in the third quarter.
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 $15.1 million of net income, a 39% increase compared to the second quarter of 2011. Utilization has increased slightly during the quarter, and we believe utilization will remain strong for the remainder of 2012, as a result of continued growth in international trade and limited container purchases by shipping lines. According to Clarkson Researchs July report, containerized trade is expected to increase 6% in 2012, led by growth in Intra Asian and Latin American regions. The worldwide leased container fleet has remained near full utilization, which we expect will result in continued strong prices in the secondary used equipment market for the remainder of 2012. As a result of recent freight rate increases imposed during the second quarter and lower fuel costs, we expect improvement in our customers financial performance over the course of this year and a reduction of credit risk within the shipping industry.
Mr. Garcia continued, During the second quarter we invested over $350 million and expect our total investment in 2012 to be above that achieved in 2011. We expect most of the investment for the remainder of the year to be in container equipment with opportunities for new containers, sale-leasebacks from shipping lines and the acquisition of assets from our managed fleet.
Mr. Garcia added, We are also pleased to announce the progress we have made in our rail business. During the quarter, we finalized an $85 million revolving credit facility for our rail business, part of which we used to purchase approximately 1,200 railcars across various equipment types. We believe that the cost and returns from the railcar purchases were made at attractive prices. CAI is well on its way to building a strong reputation as a reliable participant in this market. We enter the second half of the year with good momentum in both the rail and container leasing businesses and are optimistic about continued growth and earnings potential in both.
