PARK RIDGE, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- SeaCube Container Leasing Ltd. (SeaCube) (NYSE: BOX), one of the world's largest lessors of intermodal freight containers, today reported results for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2012.

Adjusted net income(1) was $12.9 million for the fourth quarter of 2012 compared to $13.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2011, a decrease of 4%. The decrease can be attributed to one-time expenses of $0.8 million incurred during the fourth quarter related to the pending acquisition by OTPP. For the fourth quarter of 2012, adjusted net income per diluted common share was $0.63. Adjusted net income per diluted common share would have been $0.67 without the one-time transaction expenses. The Company focuses on adjusted net income because it excludes the impact of non-cash interest expense and non-recurring items that are unrelated to the operating performance of the business.

Total revenue was $51.0 million for the fourth quarter of 2012 compared to $46.7 million for the fourth quarter of 2011, an increase of 9%. Utilization continued to be strong with average fourth quarter utilization of 97.8%. Adjusted EBITDA(1) was $73.8 million for the fourth quarter of 2012 compared to $64.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2011.

The Company reported net income of $11.9 million for the fourth quarter of 2012 compared to $12.3 million for the fourth quarter of 2011. Net income per diluted common share was $0.58 for the fourth quarter of 2012 compared to $0.61 for the fourth quarter of 2011.

Adjusted net income(1) was $51.5 million for the year ended December 31, 2012 compared to $44.1 million for the year ended December 31, 2011, an increase of 17%. For the year ended December 31, 2012, adjusted net income per diluted common share was $2.54.

Total revenue was $198.9 million for the year ended December 31, 2012 compared to $169.5 million for the year ended December 31, 2011, an increase of 17%. Adjusted EBITDA(1) was $289.5 million for the year ended December 31, 2012 compared to $239.8 million for the year ended December 31, 2011.

The Company reported net income of $46.4 million for the year ended December 31, 2012 compared to $39.4 million for the year ended December 31, 2011. Net income per diluted common share was $2.29 for the year ended December 31, 2012 compared to $1.96 for the year ended December 31, 2011.

Non-GAAP Financial Measure

Adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization ("adjusted EBITDA") is a measure of financial and operating performance that is not defined by U.S. GAAP and should not be considered a substitute for net income, income from operations or cash flow from operations, as determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP.

We define adjusted EBITDA as income (loss) from continuing operations before income taxes, interest expenses including loss on retirement of debt, depreciation and amortization, fair value adjustments on derivative instruments, loss on terminations and modification of derivative instruments, gain on sale of assets, and write-offs of goodwill plus principal collections on direct finance lease receivables. We use adjusted EBITDA in a number of ways to assess our consolidated financial and operating performance, and we believe this measure is helpful to management, the board of directors and investors in identifying trends in our performance. We use adjusted EBITDA as a measure of our consolidated operating performance exclusive of income and expenses that relate to the financing, income taxes, and capitalization of the business. Also, adjusted EBITDA assists us in comparing our operating performance on a consistent basis as it removes the impact of our capital structure (primarily interest charges on our outstanding debt) and asset base (primarily depreciation and amortization) from our operating results. In addition, adjusted EBITDA helps management identify controllable expenses and make decisions designed to help us meet our current financial goals and optimize our financial performance. Accordingly, we believe this metric measures our financial performance based on operational factors that management can impact in the short-term, namely the cost structure and expenses of the organization. Lastly, adjusted EBITDA is the basis for calculating selected financial ratios as required in the debt covenants of one of our credit facilities and one of our management agreements.

The following table shows the reconciliation of net income, the most directly comparable U.S. GAAP measure to adjusted EBITDA:

In addition, the Company has presented adjusted net income and adjusted net income per diluted common share as a measure of financial and operating performance. Adjusted net income is a measure that is not defined by U.S. GAAP and should not be considered a substitute for net income, income from operations or cash flow from operations, as determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Adjusted net income is a measure of our operating and financial performance used by management to focus on consolidated financial and operating performance exclusive of income and expenses that relate to non-routine or significant non-cash items of the business.

We define adjusted net income (loss) as net income before non-cash interest expense related to amortization of deferred financing fees, terminations and modifications of derivative instruments, losses on retirement of debt, fair value adjustments on derivative instruments, loss on swap terminations, and write-offs of goodwill. We use adjusted net income to assess our consolidated financial and operating performance, and we believe this non-GAAP measure is helpful to management and investors in identifying trends in our performance. This measure helps management make decisions which are expected to facilitate meeting current financial goals as well as achieve optimal financial performance. Adjusted net income provides us with a measure of financial performance of the business based on operational factors including the profitability of assets on an economic basis net of operating expenses and the capital costs of the business on a consistent basis as it removes the impact of certain non-routine and non-cash items from our operating results. Adjusted net income is a key metric used by senior management and our board of directors to review the consolidated financial performance of the business. Adjusted net income is a non-GAAP measure, and, as such, a reconciliation of adjusted net income to net income is provided below.
