  Ryder Reports Second Quarter 2020 Results

Second Quarter 2020

  • Q2 total revenue of $1.9 billion, down 16%, and Q2 operating revenue (non-GAAP) of $1.6 billion, down 10% primarily reflecting COVID-19 impacts on commercial rental and automotive activity in supply chain
  • Q2 GAAP EPS from continuing operations loss of $(1.41) versus a profit of $1.43 in prior year, reflecting the impacts of higher non-cash depreciation expense due to changes in residual value estimates and COVID-19

Business Updates and Impacts of COVID-19

  • Anticipate operating cash flow of $1.8 billion to $2.0 billion in 2020
  • Expect free cash flow of $1.0 billion to $1.2 billion including capital expenditures of $1.0 billion to $1.3 billion in 2020
  • Additional depreciation from change in residual value estimate primarily due to expected delay in used vehicle market recovery and a lowered longer term outlook for used vehicle market values
  • Commercial rental demand and utilization improved throughout the quarter; however, remain below pre-COVID-19 levels
  • Automotive customer activity in Supply Chain Solutions improved since April due to manufacturing ramp-up and is expected to be at pre-COVID-19 levels in the third quarter, assuming no additional disruptions
  • Dedicated Transportation Solutions and Supply Chain Solutions pre-tax earnings as a percentage of segment operating revenue for the quarter were in line with long-term targets of high single digits
  • Substantial liquidity of $2.0 billion as of July 27 available to support operations and fund $300 million in remaining 2020 debt maturities
  • Effective tax rate impacted by reduction in earnings due to additional depreciation charges and COVID-19 effects

CEO Commentary

Commenting on the company's response to the challenges of COVID-19, second quarter results, and current outlook, Ryder Chairman and CEO Robert Sanchez said, "Market conditions related to COVID-19 troughed in April for Ryder's rental, supply chain automotive, and used vehicle sales businesses, and conditions improved sequentially thereafter. The total estimated pre-tax earnings impact was $45 million in the quarter, driven by lower commercial rental demand and reduced automotive activity in supply chain, partially offset by lower overhead costs. In addition, the impact of COVID-19 on current and expected used vehicle market conditions triggered a review of Ryder's residual value estimates, resulting in increased depreciation and valuation adjustments totaling approximately $49 million in the second quarter. The earnings headwind from this higher depreciation is expected to decline over time.

"This year, we expect to generate free cash flow of $1.0 billion to $1.2 billion driven by cash generated by our sizable portfolio of contractual businesses and reduced capital expenditures. In FMS, we remain focused on actions to increase returns and de-risk the business. These initiatives include ChoiceLease price increases resulting in a mid-single-digit improvement in revenue per new lease unit compared to the prior year. We are on track to realize our 2020 target of $30 million in annual savings from our maintenance cost initiative. In used vehicles sales, we are expanding our retail capacity, growing our inside sales capabilities, and leveraging our digital investment in online sales.

"Supply chain and dedicated profit margins in the quarter were in line with our long-term targets of high single digits despite the challenges of COVID-19 and we remain focused on accelerating growth in these segments. We are launching a national advertising campaign aimed at increasing market awareness of Ryder’s broad range of logistics capabilities and promoting RyderShareTM, our visibility and collaborative logistics platform. Our customers are benefiting from the platform's capability to track and manage goods in real time as they move through the supply chain. In addition, based on recent results, we expect the profitability of our Ryder Last Mile business to be in the high single-digit range.

"Going forward, our capital allocation strategy is to accelerate growth in our higher return supply chain and dedicated businesses, while moderating growth and improving returns in our capital intensive FMS business. This strategy is expected to achieve a balance of earnings growth and free cash flow, and over time realize our long-term return on equity goal of 15%. The increased free cash flow is expected to allow us to pay down debt in order to bring our leverage into our target range, continue to pay our dividend, invest in acquisitions and new innovation initiatives, and over time, allow for discretionary share repurchases.

"Ryder continues to work closely with customers to keep the flow of goods and services moving and I remain extremely proud of our workforce. Although we expect the months ahead to remain challenging, we believe the effects of the pandemic are accelerating trends toward e-commerce fulfillment, final mile delivery of big and bulky goods, and onshoring and nearshoring of manufacturing and supply chain operations. We believe this presents a compelling opportunity for transportation and logistics outsourcing to Ryder, and as a leading North American logistics provider, we are strongly positioned to capitalize on this opportunity."

COVID-19 Impacts to Date and Outlook

The COVID-19 pandemic and measures taken to prevent its spread negatively affected Ryder's business for a total estimated pre-tax earnings impact of $45 million in the second quarter, including lower commercial rental demand ($55 million estimated impact) and reduced automotive activity in supply chain ($25 million estimated impact), partially offset by COVID-19-related temporary cost savings of $35 million. In addition, the impact of COVID-19 on current and expected used vehicle market conditions triggered a review of Ryder's residual value estimates, resulting in increased depreciation and valuation adjustments totaling approximately $49 million in the second quarter.

Due to the effects of COVID-19, the company now expects the recovery in the used vehicle market will be delayed beyond the company's prior expectation of mid-2021. Although we saw stronger than expected volumes in used vehicle sales in both the retail and wholesale markets, we expect pricing pressure to continue through mid-2022. As a result, the company primarily extended accelerated depreciation on vehicles expected to be sold by an additional year through mid-2022 and lowered long term policy residual value estimates, particularly for trucks. Additionally, in order to address elevated used vehicle inventories, certain vehicles were written down to reflect wholesale pricing levels. The estimated impact of the residual value changes in the second quarter includes $31 million from additional accelerated depreciation and valuation adjustments and $18 million of policy depreciation.

(1) Accelerated depreciation included losses for used vehicle sales, net (primarily valuation adjustments) of $23 million, $10 million, and $21 million for the three months ended September 30, 2019, December 31, 2019, and March 31, 2020, respectively.

(2) Accelerated depreciation included losses for used vehicle sales, net (primarily valuation adjustments) of $9 million for the three months ended June 30, 2020.

(3) Incremental depreciation expense was $35 million for the three months ended June 30, 2019 including impacts from accelerated and policy depreciation and losses for used vehicle sales, net.

These changes are intended to better align vehicle residual value estimates with our current view and outlook for the used vehicle market environment. These estimates are based on management’s view of market conditions and reflect the impact of this change on residual values on the fleet of power vehicles at the time of the change. Management reviews residual values periodically based on current and expected market conditions and, if management’s view of market conditions changes, may adjust, positively or negatively, residual value estimates for the fleet at such time.

Second quarter demand for commercial rental vehicles remained significantly below the prior year and typical seasonal levels; however, demand and utilization troughed in April and improved sequentially thereafter. Rental utilization percentage on power vehicles in the second quarter was 55.9% compared to historical levels in the mid-70s. Ryder took action to reduce the rental fleet size resulting in a decline in 8,600 vehicles or 19% from the prior year. Based on the rental fleet size at the end of the second quarter, 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.

Following April shutdowns, SCS automotive customer activity increased starting in mid-May as manufacturers ramped up production. We ended the second quarter at pre-COVID-19 activity levels and, assuming no additional disruption, we expect activity to remain at approximately these levels during the third quarter.

Ryder took significant actions in early April to temporarily furlough employees and reduce discretionary spending. In addition, the company incurred lower medical costs during the quarter. These items resulted in an estimated $35 million savings in the second quarter. The company does not anticipate most of the lower discretionary spending and medical cost benefit to recur going forward. In July, the company transitioned from temporary furloughs to permanent headcount reductions, primarily in FMS, which are expected to result in estimated headcount-related savings of $12 million per quarter. Second quarter 2020 comparable earnings before tax exclude restructuring and other charges of $13 million related to this reduction.

As highlighted in the prior quarter, the company expects lower lease sales in 2020 which will result in significantly lower capital expenditures. In addition, during the quarter Ryder canceled and deferred lease and rental vehicle orders and redeployed a significant amount of underutilized equipment to fulfill lease contracts, further reducing capital spending. Capital expenditures are now expected to be between $1.0 billion to $1.3 billion for the full year, resulting in anticipated free cash flow in 2020 of $1.0 billion to $1.2 billion, which is expected to be used primarily to pay down debt.

Ryder's liquidity position remains strong with approximately $700 million in cash in the U.S., $1.2 billion in available revolver borrowings, and $100 million of availability under its receivable-backed financing facility as of July 27, 2020. The company is well positioned to support operations, fund $300 million of remaining 2020 debt maturities, and expects to continue paying its dividend.

The company is not providing earnings guidance at this time as a result of the uncertainty relating to the ongoing impacts of COVID-19. The company expects to resume guidance when business conditions stabilize.

Second Quarter Business Segment Operating Results

Fleet Management Solutions

In the Fleet Management Solutions (FMS) business segment, total revenue was $1.2 billion, down 14% from the year-earlier period. FMS operating revenue (a non-GAAP measure excluding fuel and lease liability insurance revenue) was $1.1 billion, down 8% from the year-earlier period. The decline was driven by a 33% decrease in commercial rental revenue from the year-earlier period due to lower demand. ChoiceLeaseTM (lease) revenue increased 1%, reflecting a larger average fleet size and higher prices on new vehicles, partially offset by lower mileage based revenue.

FMS loss before tax was $(104) million compared with earnings before tax of $58 million in 2019 due to $154 million of additional depreciation expense from the vehicle residual value estimate changes in 2019 and 2020, resulting in a year-over-year earnings impact of $119 million. In addition, there was a negative estimated impact of COVID-19 on commercial rental performance of $55 million. This was partially offset by COVID-19-related cost actions and lower medical expenses totaling $20 million. The impact of COVID-19 on current and expected used vehicle market conditions triggered a review of Ryder's residual value estimates, resulting in increased depreciation and valuation adjustments totaling $49 million. Rental power fleet utilization was 56% in the second quarter, down from 75% in the year-earlier period. The company has taken action to reduce the rental fleet to better align with market conditions, resulting in a 19% year-over-year and a 7% sequential decline in fleet size. FMS loss before tax as a percentage of FMS total revenue and FMS operating revenue (a non-GAAP measure) were (8.7)% and (9.7)%, respectively. FMS earnings before tax as a percentage of FMS operating revenue is below the company's long term target of high single digits, reflecting increased depreciation and lower rental performance.

Supply Chain Solutions

In the Supply Chain Solutions (SCS) business segment, total revenue was down 20% to $519 million reflecting lower operating revenue (a non-GAAP measure excluding fuel and subcontracted transportation), as well as lower subcontracted and fuel revenues. Operating revenue was down 16% to $405 million compared with the year-earlier period. The decline in SCS operating revenue primarily reflects COVID-19 related reductions in the automotive sector.

SCS earnings before tax of $37 million decreased 19% in the second quarter of 2020 compared with $46 million in 2019. This decrease reflects $25 million in estimated COVID-19 impacts primarily related to lower activity with automotive customers, partially offset by COVID-19-related cost actions and lower medical expenses totaling $13 million. In addition, earnings were negatively impacted by $5 million due to changes in residual value estimates on vehicles used in this segment (which is eliminated in consolidated results). These impacts were partially offset by higher pricing and improved operating performance. SCS earnings before tax (EBT) as a percentage of SCS total revenue and SCS operating revenue (a non-GAAP measure) were 7.1% and 9.1%, respectively. SCS EBT as a percentage of SCS operating revenue is consistent with the company's long term target of high single digits.

Dedicated Transportation Solutions

In the Dedicated Transportation Solutions (DTS) business segment, total revenue was down 19% to $294 million and operating revenue (a non-GAAP measure excluding fuel and subcontracted transportation) decreased by 8% to $228 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, as well as lower DTS operating revenue primarily due to lower sales.

DTS earnings before tax of $21 million decreased 22% compared with $27 million in 2019 primarily due to a negative impact of $7 million related to changes in residual value estimates on vehicles used in this segment (which is eliminated in consolidated results). DTS earnings before tax (EBT) as a percentage of DTS total revenue and DTS operating revenue (a non-GAAP measure) were 7.2% and 9.3%, respectively. DTS EBT as a percentage of DTS operating revenue is consistent with the company's long term target of high single digits.

Corporate Financial Information

Central Support Services

In the second quarter of 2020, unallocated CSS costs were $11 million as compared to $10 million in the prior year.

Income Taxes

Our effective income tax rate from continuing operations for the second quarter of 2020 was a benefit of 22.2% as compared to an expense of 26.8% in the prior year. The tax rate was impacted by the reduction in earnings due to the additional depreciation charges and the COVID-19 effects. The comparable effective income tax rate (a non-GAAP measure) from continuing operations for the second quarter of 2020 was a benefit of 22.8% as compared to an expense of 26.9% in the prior year.

Capital Expenditures

Year-to-date capital expenditures decreased to $0.6 billion in 2020 compared with $2.2 billion in 2019. The decrease in capital expenditures reflects lower investments in the lease and rental fleets, reflecting lower demand related to COVID-19. The company now expects full year 2020 gross capital expenditures of $1.0 billion to $1.3 billion, below the $2.1 billion expected prior to the COVID-19 pandemic. Lower capital spending is expected to result in full year free cash flow of $1.0 billion to $1.2 billion as compared with negative free cash flow of $(1.1) billion in the prior year. Year-to-date proceeds from sales declined to $218 million in 2020 as compared to $256 million in the prior year due to the sale of property in 2019 for approximately $40 million. Year-to-date net capital expenditures were $378 million in 2020, down from $2.0 billion in 2019.

Cash Flow and Leverage

Year-to-date operating cash flow was $1.1 billion in 2020, up from $1.0 billion in 2019. Total cash generated (a non-GAAP measure that includes proceeds from used vehicle sales) was $1.3 billion in line with the prior year. Free cash flow (a non-GAAP measure) was positive $612 million, compared with negative $(909) million in 2019, reflecting decreased capital spending.

Total debt as of June 30, 2020 was $8.1 billion, up from $7.9 billion at year-end 2019. The company is carrying a higher cash balance due to the uncertainty of the current economic environment. Net debt declined to $7.4 billion as of June 30, 2020, from $7.9 billion as of December 31, 2019. Debt-to-equity as of June 30, 2020 was 377% 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 vehicle residual value estimate changes. Debt-to-equity also reflects a higher than normal cash balance which increased debt-to-equity by approximately 35 percentage points.

APPENDIX - NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURE RECONCILIATIONS - UNAUDITED

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.
