Ryder Reports First Quarter 2020 Results; Solid Liquidity Position Enhanced with Recent Financing Transactions and Improved Free Cash Flow

First Quarter 2020

  • Q1 total revenue of $2.2 billion, down 1%; Q1 operating revenue (non-GAAP) of $1.8 billion, up 1%
  • Q1 GAAP EPS from continuing operations loss of $(2.09) versus a profit of $0.87 in prior year, reflects the impacts of previously announced change in residual value estimates and COVID-19

Business Updates and Impacts of COVID-19

  • Substantial liquidity of $1.7 billion as of April 28 available to support operations and fund $600 million in remaining 2020 debt maturities
  • Dividend payment expected to continue
  • Increased free cash flow expected due to reduced vehicle capital expenditures

COVID-19 Impacts to Date and Outlook

Ryder enhanced its solid liquidity position in April by executing a $400 million syndicated term loan, completing a $400 million public bond offering, and renewing its $300 million receivable-backed financing facility. The company's solid liquidity position as of April 28, 2020 includes approximately $1 billion in cash in the U.S., $565 million in available revolver borrowings, and $100 million in availability under its receivable-backed financing facility. The company is well positioned to support operations, fund $600 million of remaining 2020 debt maturities, and expects to continue paying its dividend.

Considered an essential business during the COVID-19 pandemic, Ryder continues to provide crucial supply chain and transportation services to its customers in the vast majority of its locations. The pandemic and measures taken to prevent its spread, however, negatively affected Ryder's first quarter pre-tax earnings by an estimated $70 million, primarily due to estimated impacts from additional accelerated depreciation of $27 million and valuation adjustments of $21 million resulting from lower expected used vehicle pricing. Additional COVID-19 impacts late in the quarter included decreased commercial rental demand and an increase in bad debt reserves, each of which impacted earnings by an estimated $8 million. Additionally, there was a negative impact of $6 million to earnings in supply chain due to the automotive industry shutdown.

The company now expects lower used vehicle pricing in the second half of 2020 due to lower demand versus the prior expectation of a modest increase. As a result, the company increased accelerated depreciation on vehicles expected to be sold through mid-2021. In addition, the value of used vehicles in inventory at quarter end was written down to reflect lower expected pricing.

Demand for commercial rental vehicles has decreased significantly due to a substantial reduction in business activity. Rental utilization percentage on power vehicles is estimated to be in the low-50s in April, compared to historical levels in the low-70s. Every percentage point change in utilization is estimated to impact monthly pre-tax earnings by approximately $1 million until the rental fleet size can be aligned with market demand.

SCS automotive volumes have declined significantly due to production shutdowns. Our automotive customers generally expect to resume production throughout May; however, the timing and pace of the ramp up are subject to change. Continued full production shutdowns in North America would impact SCS earnings by approximately $15 million to $20 million per month including fixed costs required to maintain production readiness.

ChoiceLease revenue has not been substantially impacted through April. However, Ryder has established additional bad debt reserves of $8 million, primarily in FMS, due to slower COVID-19 related payment activity with certain customers.

Assuming ongoing impacts from the pandemic, the company expects lower lease sales in 2020 which will result in significantly lower capital expenditures. Actions including the cancellation and deferral of lease and rental vehicle orders and the redeployment of rental equipment to fulfill lease contracts will further reduce capital spending. Capital expenditures are now expected to be between $1.0 billion to $1.4 billion for the full year, resulting in 2020 free cash flow above management's prior expectations and above the prior record of $600 million.

Ryder took significant actions in early April to reduce discretionary spending and overhead costs by a total of $20 million in the second quarter, including employee furloughs.

Due to the uncertainty relating to the magnitude and duration of COVID-19 crisis, Ryder has suspended providing earnings guidance.

CEO Commentary

Commenting on the company's response to the challenges of COVID-19 and current outlook, Ryder Chairman and CEO Robert Sanchez said, "I couldn't be more proud of the courage and commitment of the nearly 40,000 Ryder employees. While much of the world sheltered in place, Ryder employees reported to the front lines to ensure the safe delivery of essential food, healthcare goods, and other critical supplies, while adhering to new hygiene and social distancing procedures. Ryder employees are the most critical component in our company's success and never more so than during this unprecedented time.

"Through mid-March, first quarter results were well ahead of our prior expectations; however, the COVID-19 pandemic negatively impacted performance for the quarter. Although we cannot predict the depth and duration of the economic impact from COVID-19, we are focused on actions to mitigate the negative effect on our operations while continuing to serve our customers and position the company to achieve our long-term goals.

"In early April, we solidified our liquidity position and now have $1.7 billion of available liquidity. In addition, given the slowdown expected from the pandemic and the counter-cyclical cash flow nature of our model, we now anticipate generating record levels of free cash flow this year. I am pleased that we are well positioned to support operations and fund $600 million of remaining 2020 debt maturities. We also expect to continue to pay our dividend.

"While these unparalleled challenges present a setback to earnings in the near term, we remain focused on our strategic initiatives to achieve our long-term target ROE of 15%. These initiatives include increasing lease prices, executing on our multi-year maintenance cost-savings initiative, and reducing capital investment in lower performing accounts and geographies. In addition, as we move past higher levels of depreciation from residual value estimates changes, we expect to recognize significantly improved returns.

"This pandemic has heightened awareness of the importance of a reliable and efficient supply chain. New trends and opportunities will emerge as a result, including an increase in near-shoring and growth in e-commerce and last-mile services. We expect increased demand for the sophisticated North American logistics operations provided by our supply chain and dedicated businesses, as well as elevated levels of visibility, transparency, and collaboration across the supply chain provided by our RyderShare visibility and collaboration tool.

"Make no mistake, the months ahead will remain challenging. In the transportation and logistics industry, we talk about new challenges and disruption all the time. At Ryder, it’s our job to overcome these obstacles. Time and again, I have witnessed the men and women of Ryder demonstrate a phenomenal capacity to come together and get the job done. I am confident in our ability to all come together now in support of our customers, our shareholders, our communities, and each other. We will get through this together and emerge a stronger company with many new opportunities to provide even greater levels of products and services in a post COVID-19 environment."

First Quarter Business Segment Operating Results

Fleet Management Solutions

In the Fleet Management Solutions (FMS) business segment, total revenue was $1.3 billion, down 1% from the year-earlier period. FMS operating revenue (a non-GAAP measure excluding fuel and lease liability insurance revenue) was $1.2 billion, up 2% from the year-earlier period. Ryder ChoiceLeaseTM (lease) revenue increased 7%, reflecting a larger average fleet size as well as higher prices on new vehicles. The lease fleet increased by 5,300 vehicles or 3% compared to the prior year. Commercial rental revenue decreased 13% from the year-earlier period due to lower demand, partially offset by higher pricing.

FMS loss before tax was $(115) million compared with earnings before tax of $61 million in 2019, including $80 million of higher depreciation expense resulting from the vehicle residual value estimate change effective July 1, 2019. Earnings were also negatively impacted by an estimated impact from COVID-19 of $60 million, as well as lower commercial rental performance. These impacts were partially offset by higher ChoiceLease results which benefited from fleet growth and higher pricing. Lower rental performance was driven by decreased demand, partially offset by increased pricing. Rental power fleet utilization was 64.4% in the first quarter, down from 74.9% in the year-earlier period, partially due to the impact of lower demand late in the quarter due to COVID-19. In second half of 2019, the company began reducing the size of the rental fleet in order to align with expected demand conditions, resulting in a 5% sequential decline in fleet size. The COVID-19 impacts of approximately $60 million included additional depreciation and valuation adjustments reflecting lower used vehicle pricing expected for vehicles to be sold through mid-2021, incrementally lower rental demand, and higher bad debt reserves reflecting slower customer payment activity. FMS loss before tax as a percentage of FMS total revenue and FMS operating revenue (a non-GAAP measure) were (8.5)% and (9.9)%, respectively.

Supply Chain Solutions

In the Supply Chain Solutions (SCS) business segment, total revenue was down 1% to $628 million and operating revenue (a non-GAAP measure excluding fuel and subcontracted transportation) was down 2% to $467 million compared with the year-earlier period. The decline in SCS total revenue and operating revenue primarily reflects previously announced lost business and COVID-19 related volume reductions in the automotive sector, partially offset by increased pricing and higher volumes with non-automotive customers.

SCS earnings before tax of $31 million decreased 4% in the first quarter of 2020 compared with $32 million in 2019. This decrease reflects COVID-19 related automotive industry production shutdowns and currency valuation charges which together total approximately $10 million, as well as additional impacts from prior-year insurance rebates and increased medical expenses. These impacts were mostly offset by higher pricing and increased volumes with non-automotive customers. SCS earnings before tax as a percentage of SCS total revenue and SCS operating revenue (a non-GAAP measure) were 4.9% and 6.6%, respectively, both down 20 basis points from the prior year.

Dedicated Transportation Solutions

In the Dedicated Transportation Solutions (DTS) business segment, total revenue was down 4% to $335 million and operating revenue (a non-GAAP measure excluding fuel and subcontracted transportation) slightly increased to $237 million compared with the year-earlier period. The decline in DTS total revenue reflects lower subcontracted transportation revenue and lower fuel costs passed through to customers. DTS operating revenue growth reflects higher volumes and pricing, partially offset by lost business.

DTS earnings before tax of $12 million decreased 30% compared with $17 million in 2019 due to a $4 million change in residual value estimates on vehicles used in this segment (which is eliminated in consolidation), prior year insurance rebates, increased medical expenses, and bad debt reserves. These impacts were partially offset by higher pricing and volumes. DTS earnings before tax as a percentage of DTS total revenue and DTS operating revenue (a non-GAAP measure) were 3.6% and 5.1%, respectively, down 140 and 230 basis points from the year-earlier period.

Corporate Financial Information

Central Support Services

In the first quarter of 2020, unallocated CSS costs decreased to $9 million from $13 million in the prior year.

Income Taxes

Our effective income tax rate from continuing operations for the first quarter of 2020 was a benefit of 4.0% as compared to an expense of 32.7% in the prior year. The tax rate was impacted by the reduction in earnings due to the accelerated depreciation charges and the COVID-19 economic effects in addition to a $13 million valuation allowance recorded on the UK’s net deferred tax assets. The comparable effective income tax rate (a non-GAAP measure) from continuing operations for the first quarter of 2020 was a benefit of 20.6% as compared to an expense of 27.6% in the prior year.

Capital Expenditures

Year-to-date capital expenditures decreased to $392 million in 2020 compared with $1.1 billion in 2019. The decrease in capital expenditures reflects lower planned investments to grow and refresh the lease and rental fleets. The company now expects full year 2020 gross capital expenditures of $1.0 billion to $1.4 billion, below the $2.1 billion expected prior to the COVID-19 pandemic and below prior year of $3.6 billion. Lower capital spending is expected to result in higher free cash flow. Proceeds of $103 million were in line with prior year as higher volumes were offset by lower pricing. Net capital expenditures were $289 million in 2020 down from $1.0 billion in 2019.

Cash Flow and Leverage

Year-to-date operating cash flow was $439 million in 2020, down from $485 million in 2019. Total cash generated (a non-GAAP measure that includes proceeds from used vehicle sales) was $542 million compared with $589 million in 2019. Free cash flow (a non-GAAP measure) was positive $111 million, compared with negative $(438) million in 2019, reflecting decreased capital spending.

Total debt as of March 31, 2020 was $8.2 billion up from $7.9 billion in 2019. Debt-to-equity as of March 31, 2020 was 364% compared with 320% at year-end 2019, above the company's long-term target of 250-300%. The increase in debt-to-equity reflects the reduction in equity related to higher non-cash depreciation expense from the previously announced vehicle residual value estimate change. Debt-to-equity also reflects a higher than normal cash balance which increased debt-to-equity by an estimated 15 percentage points.

Set forth in the table below is an overview of each non-GAAP financial measure and why management believes that presentation of each non-GAAP financial measure provides useful information to investors. See reconciliations for each of these measures following this table.

Operating Revenue Measures:

Operating Revenue

FMS Operating Revenue

SCS Operating Revenue

DTS Operating Revenue

FMS EBT as a % of FMS Operating Revenue

SCS EBT as a % of SCS Operating Revenue

DTS EBT as a % of DTS Operating Revenue

Operating revenue is defined as total revenue for Ryder System, Inc. or each business segment (FMS, SCS and DTS) excluding any (1) fuel and (2) subcontracted transportation, as well as (3) revenue from our ChoiceLease liability insurance program which was discontinued in early 2020. We believe operating revenue provides useful information to investors as we use it to evaluate the operating performance of our core businesses and as a measure of sales activity at the consolidated level for Ryder System, Inc., as well as for each of our business segments. We also use segment EBT as a percentage of segment operating revenue for each business segment for the same reason. Note: FMS EBT, SCS EBT and DTS EBT, our primary measures of segment performance, are not non-GAAP measures.

 

Fuel: We exclude FMS, SCS and DTS fuel from the calculation of our operating revenue measures, as fuel is an ancillary service that we provide our customers, which is impacted by fluctuations in market fuel prices and the costs are largely a pass-through to our customers, resulting in minimal changes in our profitability during periods of steady market fuel prices. However, profitability may be positively or negatively impacted by rapid changes in market fuel prices during a short period of time, as customer pricing for fuel services is established based on trailing market fuel costs.

 

Subcontracted transportation: We also exclude subcontracted transportation from the calculation of our operating revenue measures, as these services are also typically a pass-through to our customers and, therefore, fluctuations result in minimal changes to our profitability. While our SCS and DTS business segments subcontract certain transportation services to third party providers, our FMS business segment does not engage in subcontracted transportation and, therefore, this item is not applicable to FMS.

 

ChoiceLease liability Insurance: We exclude ChoiceLease liability insurance as we announced our plan in the first quarter of 2020 to exit the extension of our liability insurance coverage for ChoiceLease customers. The exit of this program is estimated to be completed in the second quarter of 2021. We are excluding the revenues associated with this program for better comparability of our on-going operations.

Comparable Earnings Measures:

Comparable Earnings (Loss) Before Income Taxes (EBT) and Comparable Tax Rate

Comparable Earnings

Comparable Earnings per Diluted Common Share (EPS)

Adjusted Return on Equity (ROE)

Adjusted Return on Capital (ROC) and Adjusted ROC Spread

Comparable EBT, comparable earnings and comparable EPS are defined, respectively, as GAAP EBT, earnings and EPS, all from continuing operations, excluding (1) non-operating pension costs and (2) any other significant items that are not representative of our business operations. We believe these comparable earnings measures provide useful information to investors and allow for better year-over-year comparison of operating performance.

 

Non-operating pension costs: Our comparable earnings measures exclude non-operating pension costs, which include the amortization of net actuarial loss and prior service cost, interest cost and expected return on plan assets components of pension and postretirement benefit costs, as well as a settlement or curtailment of a plan if one has occurred. We exclude non-operating pension costs because we consider these to be impacted by financial market performance and outside the operational performance of our business.

 

Other Items Impacting Comparability: Our comparable and adjusted earnings measures also exclude other significant items that are not representative of our business operations as detailed in the reconciliation table below. These other significant items vary from period to period and, in some periods, there may be no such significant items.

 

Calculation of comparable tax rate: The comparable provision for income taxes is computed using the same methodology as the GAAP provision for income taxes. Income tax effects of non-GAAP adjustments are calculated based on the statutory tax rates of the jurisdictions to which the non-GAAP adjustments relate.

 

Adjusted ROE: Adjusted ROE is defined as adjusted net earnings divided by adjusted average shareholders' equity and represents the rate of return on shareholders' investment. Other items impacting comparability described above are excluded, as applicable, from the calculation of net earnings and average shareholders' equity. We use adjusted ROE as an internal measure of how effectively we use the owned capital invested in our operations.

 

Adjusted ROC: Adjusted ROC is defined as adjusted net earnings divided by average total capital and represents the rate of return generated by the capital deployed in our business. Other items impacting comparability described above are excluded, as applicable, from the calculation of net earnings and average shareholders' equity (a component of average total capital).We use adjusted ROC as an internal measure of how effectively we use the capital invested (borrowed or owned) in our operations. Adjusted return on capital spread is calculated as the difference of the adjusted return on capital and the weighted average cost of capital.

 

Comparable Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization

Comparable EBITDA is defined as earnings from continuing operations, net of tax, first adjusted to exclude the following items, all from continuing operations: (1) non-operating pension costs and (2) any other items that are not representative of our business operations (these items are the same items that are excluded from comparable earnings measures for the relevant periods and are described under Comparable Earnings Measures above) and then adjusted further for (1) interest expense, (2) income taxes, (3) depreciation, (4) losses from used vehicle fair value adjustments and (5) amortization.

We believe comparable EBITDA provides investors with useful information, as it is a standard measure commonly reported and widely used by analysts, investors and other interested parties to measure financial performance and our ability to service debt and meet our payment obligations. In addition, we believe that the inclusion of comparable EBITDA provides consistency in financial reporting and enables analysts and investors to perform meaningful comparisons of past, present and future operating results. Other companies may calculate comparable EBITDA differently; therefore, our presentation of comparable EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly-titled measures used by other companies.

Comparable EBITDA should not be considered as an alternative to earnings from continuing operations before income taxes or earnings from continuing operations determined in accordance with GAAP, as an indicator of the Company’s operating performance, as an alternative to cash flows from operating activities (determined in accordance with GAAP), as an indicator of cash flows, or as a measure of liquidity.

Cash Flow Measures:

Total Cash Generated

 

Free Cash Flow

We consider total cash generated and free cash flow to be important measures of comparative operating performance, as our principal sources of operating liquidity are cash from operations and proceeds from the sale of revenue earning equipment.

 

Total Cash Generated: Total cash generated is defined as the sum of (1) net cash provided by operating activities, (2) net cash provided by the sale of revenue earning equipment, (3) net cash provided by the sale of operating property and equipment, and (4) other cash inflows from investing activities. We believe total cash generated is an important measure of total cash flows generated from our ongoing business activities.

 

Free Cash Flow: We refer to the net amount of cash generated from operating activities and investing activities (excluding acquisitions) from continuing operations as “free cash flow”. We calculate free cash flow as the sum of (1) net cash provided by operating activities, (2) net cash provided by the sale of revenue earning equipment, (3) net cash provided by the sale of operating property and equipment, and (4) other cash inflows from investing activities, less (5) purchases of property and revenue earning equipment. We believe free cash flow provides investors with an important perspective on the cash available for debt service and for shareholders, after making capital investments required to support ongoing business operations. Our calculation of free cash flow may be different from the calculation used by other companies and, therefore, comparability may be limited.
