CHICAGO, Jan. 28, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- GATX Corporation (NYSE:GATX) today reported 2020 fourth-quarter and full-year results. Results for the fourth quarter and full-year ending Dec. 31 are summarized below:

Total$0.50   $1.59   $4.27   $5.81  
                

2020 fourth-quarter net income from continuing operations was $17.8 million or $0.50 per diluted share, compared to net income from continuing operations of $42.1 million or $1.18 per diluted share in the fourth quarter of 2019. Net income from continuing operations for the full-year 2020 was $150.2 million or $4.24 per diluted share, compared to $180.8 million or $4.97 per diluted share in the prior year period.

The 2020 full-year results include a net negative impact of $12.3 million or $0.35 per diluted share related to the elimination of a previously announced tax rate reduction in the United Kingdom. The 2019 full-year results include a net deferred tax benefit of $2.8 million or $0.08 per diluted share related to an enacted tax rate reduction in Alberta, Canada. Details related to these items are provided in the attached Supplemental Information under Tax Adjustments and Other Items.

In the second quarter of 2020, GATX completed the sale of American Steamship Company. As a result, this segment is reported as discontinued operations and prior periods have been recast to conform to the current presentation.

“Our 2020 results reflect excellent execution in the face of a challenging year,” said Brian A. Kenney, president and chief executive officer of GATX. “Despite difficult market conditions at Rail North America, outstanding efforts by our commercial team enabled us to maintain fleet utilization above 98% throughout the year. Persistent industry-wide railcar overcapacity combined with the economic impacts of COVID-19 put significant pressure on lease rates. However, absolute lease rates for most car types stabilized or modestly improved in the second half of the year. Notably, our maintenance cost performance was better than our original expectations coming into 2020, as the efficiencies gained from aggressively moving work from third-party shops into our owned maintenance facilities more than offset COVID-19 related expenses necessary to ensure workplace safety.

“Despite the pandemic, demand for railcars remained stable in Europe and India. Rail International maintained high fleet utilization, experienced increases in renewal lease rates, and grew and further diversified its railcar fleets. Nevertheless, COVID-19 adversely affected the pace of new railcar investments in both Europe and India. In Portfolio Management, the Rolls-Royce and Partners Finance affiliates, our joint venture with Rolls-Royce, benefited from a large gain on a transaction involving the refinancing and sale of a group of aircraft spare engines in the third quarter. Apart from this gain, financial results declined due to the significant reduction in global passenger air travel resulting from the pandemic.

“Our 2020 full-year investment volume was over $1.0 billion, up significantly from 2019. We continue to execute our strategy of capitalizing on difficult market conditions to invest in attractively priced, long-lived, service-intensive transportation assets. Our acquisition of Trifleet, the world's fourth largest tank container leasing business, further expands and diversifies our asset base. Also, in January 2021, we invested approximately $120 million for the acquisition of Rolls-Royce aircraft spare engines that are on long-term leases to strong airline customers. Investments of this nature provide GATX with promising growth opportunities and reflect our confidence in the future of the aircraft spare engine leasing business. RRPF will continue to invest at the joint venture level while also managing these direct investments for GATX.”

Mr. Kenney added, “The difficulty in predicting the timing of the COVID-19 pandemic's easing and an economic recovery creates substantial uncertainty in our earnings estimates. While we see some initial signs of recovery in North America railcar leasing, absent an unforeseen demand catalyst, fleet utilization and lease rates are expected to remain under pressure from an ongoing market oversupply of railcars. However, we expect lower lease revenue to be offset by higher asset disposition gains and cost control, leading to essentially flat segment profit at Rail North America in 2021. Rail International is expected to produce higher profitability in 2021 due to continued strong demand for new and existing railcars in Europe and India. At Portfolio Management, we project significantly lower 2021 segment profit as RRPF expects to realize lower gains from asset sales and continued pressure on its customer base due to the severe reduction in global air travel. Considering all these factors, we currently expect 2021 earnings to be in the range of $4.00 to $4.30 per diluted share.”

Mr. Kenney concluded, “In 2020, GATX executed on our priorities of ensuring the health and safety of our global workforce, maintaining asset utilization, containing costs, and attractively growing our asset base. I am proud of our employees for successfully navigating through a tumultuous year to meet the needs of all of our stakeholders.”

RAIL NORTH AMERICA
Rail North America reported segment profit of $49.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2020, compared to $61.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2019. Lower segment profit was primarily due to lower gains on asset dispositions in the quarter. Full-year 2020 Rail North America reported segment profit of $227.6 million, compared to $276.2 million in 2019. Lower segment profit in 2020 was primarily the result of lower lease revenue and lower gains on asset dispositions, partially offset by lower maintenance expense.

At Dec. 31, 2020, Rail North America’s wholly owned fleet was approximately 118,100 cars, including more than 14,300 boxcars. The following fleet statistics and performance discussion exclude the boxcar fleet.

Fleet utilization was 98.1% at the end of the fourth quarter, compared to 98.2% at the end of the prior quarter and 99.3% at 2019 year end. During the fourth quarter, the GATX Lease Price Index (LPI), a weighted-average lease renewal rate for a group of railcars representative of Rail North America’s fleet, was negative 22.6%. This compares to negative 29.4% in the prior quarter and negative 9.1% in the fourth quarter of 2019. The average lease renewal term for railcars included in the LPI during the fourth quarter was 34 months, compared to 29 months in the prior quarter and 37 months in the fourth quarter of 2019. The fourth-quarter renewal success rate was 77.0%, compared to 58.1% in the prior quarter and 84.0% in the fourth quarter of 2019.

For full-year 2020, the renewal lease rate change of the LPI was negative 23.5% and the average renewal term was 31 months, compared to negative 3.9% and 39 months in 2019. The renewal success rate for 2020 was 70.8%, compared to 82.2% in 2019. Total investment volume was $642.0 million in 2020.

Additional fleet statistics, including information on the boxcar fleet, and macroeconomic data related to Rail North America’s business are provided on the last page of this press release.

RAIL INTERNATIONAL
Rail International’s segment profit was $25.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2020, compared to $22.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2019. Higher segment profit was predominately driven by more railcars on lease. Rail International reported full-year segment profit of $83.5 million in 2020, compared to $78.9 million in 2019. Full-year 2020 segment profit was favorable to 2019 primarily driven by more railcars on lease, partly offset by foreign exchange impacts.

At Dec. 31, 2020, GRE’s fleet consisted of approximately 26,350 cars and utilization was 98.1%, compared to 98.2% at the end of the prior quarter and 99.3% at 2019 year end.

Additional fleet statistics for GRE are provided on the last page of this press release.

PORTFOLIO MANAGEMENT
Portfolio Management reported segment loss of $5.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2020, compared to segment profit of $27.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2019. Lower segment profit was primarily driven by the performance at the Rolls-Royce and Partners Finance (RRPF) affiliates. Full-year 2020 segment profit was $77.4 million, compared to $62.4 million in 2019. The increase in year-to-date segment profit was primarily due to higher marine operating revenue, while a large gain at RRPF from a transaction involving the refinancing and sale of a group of aircraft spare engines in the third quarter also supported higher 2020 segment profit.

DISCONTINUED OPERATIONS
In the second quarter of 2020, GATX completed the sale of American Steamship Company (ASC). The ASC business segment is accounted for as discontinued operations. The final gain on the sale of ASC, net of taxes, was $3.3 million. Results for discontinued operations are summarized below:

_________

(1) Shareholders' equity used in this calculation excludes the impact of the Tax Act.

(*) In addition to financial results reported in accordance with GAAP, we compute certain financial measures using non-GAAP components. Specifically, we exclude the effects of certain tax adjustments and other items for purposes of presenting net income, diluted earnings per share, and return on equity because we believe these items are not attributable to our business operations. Management utilizes net income, excluding tax adjustments and other items, when analyzing financial performance because such amounts reflect the underlying operating results that are within management’s ability to influence. Accordingly, we believe presenting this information provides investors and other users of our financial statements with meaningful supplemental information for purposes of analyzing year-to-year financial performance on a comparable basis and assessing trends.

_________

(1) GATX's Lease Price Index (LPI) is an internally-generated business indicator that measures lease rate pricing on renewals for our North American railcar fleet, excluding boxcars. GATX calculates the index using the weighted-average lease rate for a group of railcar types that GATX believes best represents its overall North American fleet, excluding boxcars. The average renewal lease rate change is reported as the percentage change between the average renewal lease rate and the average expiring lease rate, weighted by fleet composition. The average renewal lease term is reported in months and reflects the average renewal lease term of railcar types in the LPI, weighted by fleet composition.
(2) Excludes boxcar fleet.
(3) As reported and revised by the Federal Reserve.
(4) As reported by the Association of American Railroads (AAR).
(5) As reported by the Railway Supply Institute (RSI).
(6) Total net tons carried for the second quarter of 2020 reflects volume through May 14, 2020, the date of the sale.
