CEO Comment

Commenting on the company's results and outlook, Ryder Chairman and CEO Robert Sanchez says, "Record third-quarter earnings reflects growth in all three business segments. Earnings exceeded our most recent forecast due primarily to better than expected results in used vehicle sales and rental. Strong ROE of 30% reflected ongoing truck capacity constraints in the market and benefits from our initiatives to increase long-term returns. We continued to see strong sales momentum and realized record multi-year contractual sales year-to-date, positioning us well for future revenue growth.

"We executed on our initiatives and returned to high single-digit earnings targets in both supply chain and dedicated, resulting in approximately 190% and 150% segment earnings growth respectively. This improvement reflects pricing adjustments to address unusually high labor cost increases that began in 2021 and benefits from profitable new business. We expect SCS and DTS results to continue to benefit from these actions going forward.

"Accelerating growth in SCS and DTS is a key driver of our strategy to create long-term shareholder value. Our recent acquisitions in fast-growing e-commerce fulfillment and multiclient warehousing continue to contribute to earnings growth in SCS. Consistent with our strategy to drive growth by bringing new technology-driven solutions to market, we recently announced the acquisition of Baton, a startup tech firm which we initially invested in through RyderVentures, our corporate venture capital fund. We are excited about the value the Baton team can create for Ryder customers as we build out a new suite of products that focus on optimizing transportation and supply chain networks.

"In FMS, used vehicle sales and rental performance contributed to strong results again this quarter. As anticipated, used truck and tractor pricing declined sequentially in the quarter and we continued to realize substantial used vehicle gains as prices remain well above our residual value estimates. Rental demand and pricing conditions remain robust and we have yet to see softening trends in the rental market. Our lease pricing initiative continues to deliver improved results, and we anticipate incremental earnings from this initiative as the remaining half of our lease portfolio is renewed at higher returns. Despite ongoing OEM delays, our North American lease fleet returned to growth at the end of the quarter. We continue to expect our year-end lease fleet to be up by approximately 2,000 vehicles, which will contribute primarily to earnings in 2023.

"Looking ahead, we've increased our 2022 ROE and comparable EPS forecasts to reflect improved rental and used vehicle sales performance and we remain confident in our outlook for continued strong core earnings. We have increased our most recent free cash flow forecast for full year 2022 to $800 - $900 million due to higher proceeds from used vehicle sales.

"Our strong balance sheet enables us to pursue targeted acquisitions and return capital to shareholders. We completed our $300 million accelerated share repurchase program in September 2022 and have existing authorization for an additional 2-million-share discretionary program and a 2.5-million-share anti-dilutive program.

"During the quarter, we released our latest Corporate Sustainability Report. We were proud to share that as a result of our initiatives to reduce our environmental footprint through efficiency and innovation, we achieved our emissions reduction targets well ahead of schedule."

Fleet Management Solutions (FMS) total and operating revenue increased due to higher rental revenue driven by higher pricing and demand. Total revenue also increased due to higher fuel prices passed through to customers. FMS operating revenue increased globally despite a 4% negative impact from the wind down of the UK business.

FMS EBT increased by $79 million primarily from higher used vehicle sales and rental results reflecting benefits from tight truck capacity and initiatives to improve returns in these areas. Increased gains on used vehicles sold and a declining impact of depreciation expense from prior vehicle residual value estimate changes contributed $55 million in higher year-over-year earnings. Used vehicle pricing increased from the prior year for both trucks and tractors. Sequentially from the second quarter of 2022, used truck and tractor pricing decreased 11% and 22%, respectively. Used vehicle inventory levels increased sequentially to 4,700 vehicles but remains below the company's long-term target range of 7,000 - 9,000 vehicles. Rental results benefited from a 7% increase in power-fleet pricing and strong power-fleet utilization of 83% on a larger fleet. FMS EBT as a percentage of FMS operating revenue is well above the company's long-term target of low double-digits for the third quarter and for the trailing 12-month period.

Supply Chain Solutions (SCS) total and operating revenue increased due to acquisitions and double-digit organic revenue growth in all industry verticals reflecting higher volumes, new business, and increased pricing. Higher volumes include the prior-year impact of automotive supply chain disruptions. Operating revenue grew 23% organically year-over-year.

SCS EBT increased primarily due to higher pricing and cost-recovery initiatives as well as new business. EBT comparisons also benefited from the impact of automotive supply chain disruptions in the prior year and acquisitions. SCS EBT as a percentage of SCS operating revenue is in line with the company's long-term target of high single-digits for the third quarter 2022 but below target for the trailing 12-month period.

Corporate Financial Information

Unallocated Central Support Services (CSS)

Unallocated CSS costs were $21 million as compared to $17 million in the prior year, primarily reflecting increased incentive-based compensation costs and professional fees.

Income Taxes

Our effective income tax rate from continuing operations was 26.3% as compared to 24.3% in the prior year due to incremental U.S. tax on higher foreign earnings related to the exit of our UK FMS business as well as a shift in the mix of earnings subject to tax in different jurisdictions.

Capital Expenditures, Cash Flow, and Leverage

Year-to-date capital expenditures increased to $2.0 billion in 2022 compared to $1.5 billion in 2021 due to higher planned investments in the lease fleet.

Year-to-date net cash provided by operating activities from continuing operations increased to $1.8 billion as compared to $1.7 billion in the prior year, reflecting higher earnings partially offset by higher working capital needs. Free cash flow (a non-GAAP measure) was $887 million, up from $829 million in 2021, primarily due to higher proceeds from the sale of revenue-earning equipment, partially offset by an increase in capital expenditures. Full-year 2022 free cash flow forecast increased by $50 million to $800 million - $900 million. This includes $200 million of capital expenditures deferred into 2023 related to OEM vehicle delivery delays and $350 million of expected proceeds from the exit of the UK business.

Debt-to-equity as of September 30, 2022 decreased to 210% from 235% at year-end 2021 and is below the company's long-term target of 250% - 300%.

Share Repurchase Programs

Ryder completed its $300 million accelerated share repurchase program in September 2022. Under this program, a total of 4 million shares were repurchased and retired at an average price of $74.47 per share. Board authorization exists for a 2-million-share discretionary program and a 2.5-million-share anti-dilutive program.

Fleet Management Solutions UK Business Update

The company continues to make significant progress in exiting the lower-return UK business and remains on track to complete the process by mid-2023. Since the beginning of 2022, Ryder has sold approximately 75% of the UK vehicles and properties, generating proceeds of $326 million.

Note: Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

Certain statements and information included in this news release are “forward-looking statements” under the Federal Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, including our forecast, expectations regarding market trends and economic environment; impact of supply chain and labor shortage challenges and vehicle production constraints on our business, market conditions, e-commerce trends, freight environment, expected earnings, depreciation, commercial rental demand and utilization, and used vehicle sales volume and pricing; expectations related to our strategic investments and initiatives, including our recent supply chain acquisitions and initiatives related to maintenance costs savings and improving returns; expected benefits of lease pricing initiatives and our ability to renew leases; our expectations regarding benefits from our accelerated share repurchase program; our expectations related to timeline and cash proceeds from our exit of the FMS U.K. market; our ability to execute our strategy of accelerating growth in certain business segments; performance, including sales and revenue growth, in our product lines and segments, for example e-commerce and multi-client warehousing; residual values and depreciation expense; used vehicle inventory; earnings; free cash flow; tax rate; operating cash flow; capital expenditures; fleet growth; and expected benefits from new contracts and pricing initiatives in our supply chain and dedicated business divisions. Our forward-looking statements also include our estimates of the impact of our changes to residual value estimates on earnings and depreciation expense. The expected impact of the change in residual value estimates is based on our current assessment of the residual values and useful lives of revenue-earning equipment based on multi-year trends and our outlook for the expected near- and long-term used vehicle market. A variety of factors, many of which are outside of our control, could cause residual value estimates to differ from actual used vehicle sales pricing, such as changes in supply and demand of used vehicles; volatility in market conditions; changes in vehicle technology; competitor pricing; regulatory requirements; driver shortages; customer requirements and preferences; and changes in underlying assumption factors.

All of our forward-looking statements should be evaluated by considering the many risks and uncertainties inherent in our business that could cause actual results and events to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements. Important factors that could cause such differences include, the effect of the COVID-19 pandemic and future variants, including ongoing supply chain and labor challenges and vehicle production constraints; the effect of geopolitical events, including the impact of the conflict between Russia and Ukraine; our ability to adapt to changing market conditions, including lower than expected contractual sales, decreases in commercial rental demand or utilization, poor acceptance of rental pricing, and declining market demand for or excess supply of used vehicles impacting current or estimated pricing and our anticipated proportion of retail versus wholesale sales; declining customer demand for our services; higher than expected maintenance costs; lower than expected benefits from our cost-savings initiatives; our ability to effectively and efficiently integrate acquisitions into our business; lower than expected benefits from our sales, marketing and new product initiatives; setbacks in the economic market or in our ability to retain profitable customer accounts; impact of changing laws and regulations; difficulty in obtaining adequate profit margins for our services; inability to maintain current pricing levels due to soft economic conditions, business interruptions or expenditures due to labor disputes, severe weather or natural occurrences; competition from other service providers, changes in technology and new entrants; driver and technician shortages resulting in higher procurement costs and turnover rates; impact of worldwide semiconductor shortage; higher than expected bad debt reserves or write-offs; decrease in credit ratings; increased debt costs; adequacy of accounting estimates; higher than expected reserves and accruals particularly with respect to pension, taxes, insurance and revenue; impact of changes in our residual value estimates and accounting policies; unanticipated changes in fuel prices; unanticipated currency exchange rate fluctuations; increases in inflation or interest rates; our ability to manage our cost structure; and the risks described in our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). The risks included here are not exhaustive. New risks emerge from time to time and it is not possible for management to predict all such risk factors or to assess the impact of such risks on our business. Accordingly, we undertake no obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events, or otherwise.

Note: Regarding Non-GAAP Financial Measures

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

 

Operating Revenue Growth

 

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. Fuel revenue 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 current market fuel costs.

 

Subcontracted transportation: We 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 was completed in the first quarter of 2021. We are excluding the revenue associated with this program for better comparability of our on-going operations.

Comparable Earnings Measures:

Comparable Earnings before Income Taxes (EBT)

 

Comparable Earnings

 

Comparable Earnings per Diluted Common Share (EPS)

 

Comparable Tax Rate

 

Adjusted Return on Equity (ROE)

 

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, net and (2) other items impacting comparability (as further described below). 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, net: Our comparable earnings measures exclude non-operating pension costs, net, 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 any significant charges for settlements or curtailments if recognized. We exclude non-operating pension costs, net 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.

 

Comparable Tax Rate 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 marginal tax rates to which the non-GAAP adjustments are related.

 

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.

Comparable Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization (EBITDA)

Comparable EBITDA is defined as net earnings, first adjusted to exclude discontinued operations and the following items, all from continuing operations: (1) non-operating pension costs, net 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 as described immediately above) and then adjusted further for (1) interest expense, (2) income taxes, (3) depreciation, (4) used vehicle sales results 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 net earnings, 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 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 is defined as the net amount of cash generated from operating activities and investing activities (excluding acquisitions) from continuing operations. 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 and operating property and equipment, and (3) other cash inflows from investing activities, less (4) 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.
