Pacer International Reports Second Quarter Results

Pacer International Reports Second Quarter Results

DUBLIN, Ohio--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Pacer International, Inc. (NAS: PACR) , the asset-light North American freight transportation and logistics services provider, today reported financial results for the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2013.

SECOND QUARTER RESULTS

  • Income from operations improved by 20.0% from the second quarter of 2012 to $3.0 million, primarily due to improved intermodal margins;
  • Total revenues decreased $130.3 million from the second quarter of 2012. As expected, the decrease was primarily due to the implementation of the new cross border agreement with Union Pacific where we no longer collect and pass through the rail transportation costs to automotive intermediaries servicing the US-Mexico business, as well as lower volumes in both the intermodal and logistics segments;
  • Total cost of purchased transportation and services decreased $129.3 million from the second quarter of 2012. As expected, the decrease was primarily due to the implementation of the new cross border agreement with Union Pacific and the lower volumes;
  • Net income increased $0.6 million from the second quarter of 2012 to $1.9 million;
  • Earnings per share increased by $0.01 from the second quarter of 2012 to $0.05;
  • Revenues, gross margin, income from operations and earnings per share improved in the second quarter of 2013 as compared to the first quarter.

USE OF NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES: From time to time in press releases regarding quarterly earnings, presentations and other communications, we may provide financial information determined by methods other than in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP").

These measures include adjusted results for 2012 which exclude from revenues and costs of purchased transportation, the rail transportation costs in our wholesale intermodal auto business that we no longer collect and pass through to automotive intermediaries servicing the US-Mexico business. Adjusted results for the three months and six months ended June 30, 2012 are set forth in the tables of this press release.

Management uses these non-GAAP measures in its analysis of the Company's performance and regularly reports such information to our Board of Directors. Management believes that presentations of financial measures excluding the impact of these items provides useful supplemental information that is essential to a proper understanding of the operating results of our core businesses and allows investors, management and our Board to more easily compare operating results from period to period. However, the use of any such non-GAAP financial information should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for revenues, net income or loss, operating income or loss, cash flows from operations or other income or cash flow data prepared in accordance with GAAP or as a measure of our profitability or liquidity. These non-GAAP measures may not be comparable to those used by other companies.
