Ryder Reports Third Quarter 2020 Results

·20-min read
  • Q3 total revenue of $2.2 billion, down 3%, reflecting lower fuel revenue

  • Q3 operating revenue (non-GAAP) of $1.8 billion, unchanged as higher revenues in supply chain solutions and lease were offset by lower revenues in commercial rental and dedicated transportation solutions

  • Q3 GAAP EPS from continuing operations of $0.85 versus a loss of $(1.75) in prior year, primarily reflecting declining depreciation impact from prior residual value estimate changes as well as improved lease performance and higher supply chain solutions results

  • Q3 comparable EPS (non-GAAP) from continuing operations of $1.21 versus a loss of $(1.49) in prior year

  • Improvement in areas impacted by COVID-19:

    • Used vehicle sales results benefited from record sales volume and higher sequential truck and tractor pricing

    • Commercial rental demand and utilization improved throughout the quarter, with September utilization above same month in prior year

    • Supply chain automotive revenue returned to pre-pandemic levels

Ryder System, Inc. (NYSE: R), a leader in supply chain, dedicated transportation, and commercial fleet management solutions, reported results for the three months ended September 30 as follows:

CEO Comment

Commenting on the company's third quarter results, response to the challenges of COVID-19, and the current business environment, Ryder Chairman and CEO Robert Sanchez said, "Over the last year, we've taken significant actions to address a historic downturn in the used vehicle market and the impacts from COVID-19 on our used vehicle sales, commercial rental, and automotive supply chain businesses. These actions include adjusting our vehicle residual values, reducing the size of our rental fleet, and lowering operating and overhead costs. In addition, we have remained focused on our strategic initiatives to achieve our goal of 15% adjusted return on equity.

"In the third quarter, we saw improvement in the areas of our business most directly impacted by the pandemic. An improved freight environment contributed to the stabilization of used vehicle and rental market conditions in the quarter. Strong automotive production activity benefited our supply chain automotive business. We also continued to see the positive results of the actions we are taking.

"Fleet management results benefited from a declining impact from prior residual value estimate changes as well as improved lease performance. Lease performance benefited from higher pricing on lease vehicles reflecting our lease pricing initiative, and lower maintenance costs, including benefits from our cost-savings initiative. We realized gains on used vehicle sales from higher sequential pricing and lowered our inventory from the second quarter, driven by record used vehicle sales volume. We now expect our used vehicle inventory at year-end to be within our target range. We also continue to see solid momentum in the recovery of commercial rental due to increased freight activity, as well as actions taken to downsize the fleet. Utilization in the third quarter of 71% was up significantly from 56% in the prior quarter and October utilization to date is trending higher sequentially. Utilization for the fourth quarter is expected to be in line with the prior year.

"In our supply chain business, automotive revenue exceeded pre-COVID levels during the quarter, primarily reflecting higher automotive production support activity following shutdowns earlier this year. We're seeing strong sales in our supply chain business driven by favorable outsourcing trends. Growth with new and existing supply chain customers, as well as high COVID-19 related volumes and temporary cost benefits, resulted in pre-tax margins above our target range. Our supply chain business is also benefiting from accelerating trends in areas such as last-mile delivery of big-and-bulky goods and e-commerce fulfillment. Ryder Last Mile revenues were up nearly 30%, delivering returns in the quarter well above our overall target for SCS. These results were driven by new business as well as higher volumes partially due to COVID-19. We recently expanded our e-fulfillment distribution network and deployed automation technology.

"Looking ahead to the fourth quarter, we anticipate returns in supply chain and dedicated to moderate, reflecting seasonality and lower COVID-related activity, and to be within their target ranges for the full year. Also in the fourth quarter, we will be awarding our front-line employees a special recognition and retention bonus for their extraordinary efforts as essential workers during this pandemic, resulting in a one-time expense of approximately $30 million. We expect these sequential headwinds to be partially offset by a declining impact from depreciation due to prior residual value estimate changes and other items. In rental, we expect return improvements to accelerate in the fourth quarter due to higher demand and improved utilization. In lease, we expect the fleet to continue to decline; however, pricing is expected to be higher reflecting our pricing initiative. We anticipate record free cash flow of $1.4 to $1.5 billion in 2020, significantly above the prior year negative free cash flow of $(1.1) billion. Additionally, in the fourth quarter we expect to resume our anti-dilutive share repurchase program which was temporarily paused due to COVID-19.

"I would also like to highlight our recent announcement of RyderVentures, a corporate venture capital fund aimed at investing $50 million over the next five years. The fund plans to invest in and partner with start-up companies that are developing new technologies that address disruptions in the supply chain, driven by accelerating demand for e-commerce fulfillment, asset sharing, next-generation vehicles, automation, and data analytics, among others."

(1) In the second quarter of 2020, we projected that the 3Q20 estimated impact from policy and accelerated
depreciation due to residual value estimate changes made in 2019 and 2020 would be $115M of depreciation
expense. The actual impact was $100M which included $13M in gains on used vehicle sales, net, as an offset to
the depreciation expense. The difference between the estimated impact and the actual impact was $15M,
primarily due to gains of $13M on used vehicle sales, net, which was not included in 3Q20 estimates.

In the Fleet Management Solutions (FMS) business segment, total revenue and operating revenue declined primarily due to a 16% decrease in commercial rental revenue resulting from lower demand, partially offset by higher pricing on lease vehicles.

FMS EBT increased by $125 million reflecting a declining impact of depreciation expense from prior vehicle residual value estimate changes and higher gains on used vehicles sold together totaling $108 million. Results also benefited from higher pricing on lease vehicles and lower maintenance costs, including benefits from our cost-savings initiative. Used vehicle sales results improved from the prior year from lower inventory valuation adjustments and higher gains on used vehicles sold. These benefits were partially offset by lower commercial rental results. Rental power fleet utilization in the quarter was 71% as compared to 56% in the second quarter and 74% in the prior year. Utilization increased throughout the third quarter due to improving economic conditions and actions taken to reduce the rental fleet size. FMS earnings before tax as a percentage of FMS operating revenue is below the company's long-term target of high single digits, reflecting depreciation from prior residual value estimate changes and lower rental results.

In the Supply Chain Solutions (SCS) business segment, total revenue and operating revenue increased primarily due to new business, higher volumes, and increased pricing. Increased volumes were partly due to higher automotive production support following shutdowns earlier in the year, as well as COVID-19 related freight increases in the consumer packaged goods vertical and Ryder Last Mile.

SCS earnings before tax increased due to new business, higher pricing, and improved operating performance. SCS EBT as a percentage of SCS operating revenue is above the company's long-term target of high single digits.

Corporate Financial Information

Income Taxes

Our effective income tax rate from continuing operations for the third quarter of 2020 was an expense of 17.7% as compared to an expense of 0.3% in the prior year. The tax rate was impacted by additional depreciation expense in both periods. The comparable effective income tax rate (a non-GAAP measure) from continuing operations for the third quarter of 2020 was an expense of 17.9% as compared to an expense of 7.0% in the prior year.

Capital Expenditures, Cash Flow, and Leverage

Year-to-date gross capital expenditures decreased to $0.8 billion in 2020 compared with $3.0 billion in 2019 due to lower investments in the lease and rental fleets. The company now expects full year 2020 gross capital expenditures of $1.0 billion to $1.1 billion versus the prior forecast of $1.0 billion to $1.3 billion.

Year-to-date operating cash flow was $1.7 billion in 2020, up from $1.6 billion in 2019. Free cash flow (a non-GAAP measure) was positive $1.2 billion, compared with negative $(965) million in 2019, reflecting decreased capital spending. The company expects full year 2020 operating cash flow of $2.0 to $2.1 billion. Due to lower capital spending, the company expects full year 2020 free cash flow of $1.4 billion to $1.5 billion as compared with negative free cash flow of $(1.1) billion in the prior year.

Debt-to-equity as of September 30, 2020 was 346%, compared with 377% at the end of the second quarter and 320% at year-end 2019, and above the company's long-term target of 250-300%. The increase in debt-to-equity from year-end 2019 reflects the reduction in equity related to higher depreciation expense, a higher cash balance due to the uncertainty of the economic environment, and a pension equity charge. These items were partially offset by a reduction in debt due to higher free cash flow. A higher than normal cash balance and the pension equity charge increased debt-to-equity by approximately 25 and 10 percentage points, respectively.

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-term used vehicle market. Our assessment is subject to risks, uncertainties, and assumptions as to future events that may not prove to be accurate. Factors that could cause actual results related to vehicle residual values to materially differ from estimates include, but are not limited to, changes in supply and demand, competitor pricing, regulatory requirements, driver shortages, requirements and preferences, as well as changes in underlying assumption factors.

All of our forward-looking statements should be evaluated with consideration given to 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, among others, the duration and severity of the COVID-19 pandemic and governmental responses thereto; our ability to adapt to changing market conditions, lower than expected contractual sales, decreases in commercial rental demand or utilization or poor acceptance of rental pricing, worsening of market demand for or excess supply of used vehicles impacting current and/or estimated pricing and our anticipated proportion of retail versus wholesale sales, lack of customer demand for our services, higher than expected maintenance costs, lower than expected benefits from our cost-savings initiatives, lower than expected benefits from our sales, marketing and new product initiatives, higher than expected costs related to our ERP implementation, setbacks or uncertainty in the economic market or in our ability to grow and retain profitable customer accounts, implementation or enforcement of regulations, decreases in freight demand or volumes, used vehicle inventory levels, poor operational execution including with respect to new accounts and product launches, our difficulty in obtaining adequate profit margins for our services, our 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 and new entrants, lower than anticipated customer retention levels, loss of key customers, driver and technician shortages resulting in higher procurement costs and turnover rates, higher than expected bad debt reserves or write-offs, changes in customers' business environments that will limit their ability to commit to long-term vehicle leases, a decrease in credit ratings, increased debt costs, adequacy of accounting estimates, higher than expected reserves and accruals particularly with respect to pension, taxes, depreciation, insurance and revenue, impact of changes in our residual value estimates and accounting policies, including our depreciation policy, the sudden or unusual changes in fuel prices, unanticipated currency exchange rate fluctuations, our ability to manage our cost structure, and the risks described in our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

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.

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.
