Schneider National, Inc. Announces First Quarter 2021 Results

4.29.21
  • Operating Revenues $1.2 billion; $1.1 billion in 2020
  • Income from Operations $76.2 million; $54.9 million in 2020
  • Diluted Earnings Per Share $0.31; $0.25 in 2020
  • Adjusted Diluted Earnings Per Share $0.31; $0.24 in 2020

GREEN BAY, Wis.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Schneider National, Inc. (NYSE: SNDR, “Schneider” or the “Company”), a leading transportation and logistics services company, today announced results for the three months ended March 31, 2021.

“Our first quarter results affirm our strategy of a scaled, multi-modal portfolio providing enterprise solutions for our customers,” said Mark Rourke, Chief Executive Officer and President of Schneider. “Weather conditions in the quarter disrupted operations and impacted results in all our segments above that of an average year. In our Truckload segment, effective yield management and dedicated new business offset the impact of challenged driver capacity conditions and severe weather. Our Intermodal segment grew earnings 23% year over year, as favorable growth in our Eastern operations outweighed a series of disruptions in the network. Our Logistics segment achieved record first quarter revenue and earnings, aided by our broad qualified carrier network and expanded leverage of the Schneider FreightPower® platform.”

Rourke continued, “Despite the restricted driver capacity and lack of intermodal fluidity, we delivered the most profitable first quarter in our history, and our 2021 objectives to drive growth, enhance margins, and deliver shareholder value remain intact.”

Results of Operations – Reportable Segments

Truckload

Truckload revenues (excluding fuel surcharge) for the first quarter of 2021 were $451.7 million, a decrease of $17.7 million, or 4%, compared to the same quarter in 2020, primarily due to lower network capacity levels and weather conditions, partially offset by favorable yield and dedicated growth. In addition, Truckload network revenue per truck per week was $3,859, an increase of $264, or 7%, compared to the first quarter of 2020.

Truckload income from operations was$38.3 million in the first quarter of 2021, an increase of $1.7 million, or 5%, compared to the same quarter in 2020. Constructive yield management actions taken in the quarter, including contract renewals and spot market opportunities, and favorable equipment and safety costs more than offset the earnings impact of reduced capacity and increased driver costs. Truckload segment operating ratio was 91.5% in the first quarter of 2021, compared to 92.2% in the first quarter of 2020.

Intermodal

Intermodal revenues (excluding fuel surcharge) for the first quarter of 2021 were $255.8 million, an increase of $17.8 million, or 7%, compared to the same quarter in 2020. Intermodal orders grew 2%, and revenue per order increased 6% compared to the first quarter of 2020. Further leverage and market differentiation of the Company’s Eastern rail operations more than offset the impact of Western service issues and weather in the quarter.

Intermodal income from operations for the first quarter of 2021 was $20.0 million, an increase of $3.7 million, or 23%, compared to the same quarter in 2020. Yield management actions and Eastern network growth led to the year over year increase in earnings, more than offsetting weather disruptions. Intermodal operating ratio was 92.2% in the first quarter of 2021, compared to 93.2% in the first quarter of 2020.

Logistics

Logistics revenues (excluding fuel surcharge) for the first quarter of 2021 were $355.9 million, an increase of $116.3 million, or 49%, compared to the same quarter in 2020. Following record fourth quarter 2020 revenues, increased revenue per order and continued brokerage volume growth resulted in record first quarter revenues in 2021.

Logistics income from operations for the first quarter of 2021 was $15.9 million, an increase of $11.7 million, or 279%, compared to the same quarter in 2020, primarily due to increased net revenue per order and volume growth compared to the first quarter of 2020. Logistics operating ratio was 95.5% in the first quarter of 2021, compared to 98.2% in the first quarter of 2020.

Business Outlook

“We anticipate strong demand, improved intermodal network fluidity, and constrained driver capacity throughout 2021,” Rourke commented. “Based on these anticipated market conditions, our updated full year adjusted diluted earnings per share guidance is $1.60 - $1.70, up from our original guidance of $1.45 - $1.60. Our full year guidance for net capital expenditures is updated to a range of $375 million to $425 million subject to potential OEM supply chain issues.”

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company has presented certain non-GAAP financial measures, including revenues (excluding fuel surcharge), adjusted income from operations, adjusted operating ratio, adjusted net income, and adjusted diluted earnings per share. Management believes the use of non-GAAP measures assists investors in understanding the business, as further described below. The non-GAAP information provided is used by Company management and may not be comparable to similar measures disclosed by other companies. The non-GAAP measures used herein have limitations as analytical tools and should not be considered in isolation or as substitutes for analysis of results as reported under GAAP.

A reconciliation of net income per share to adjusted diluted earnings per share as projected for 2021 is not provided. Schneider does not forecast net income per share as the Company cannot, without unreasonable effort, estimate or predict with certainty various components of net income. The components of net income that cannot be predicted include expenses for items that do not relate to core operating performance, such as costs related to potential future acquisitions, as well as the related tax impact of these items. Further, in the future, other items with similar characteristics to those currently included in adjusted net income, that have a similar impact on the comparability of periods, and which are not known at this time may exist and impact adjusted net income.

Schneider National, Inc.
Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
(unaudited)

In this earnings release, we present the following non-GAAP financial measures: (1) revenues (excluding fuel surcharge), (2) adjusted income from operations, (3) adjusted operating ratio, (4) adjusted net income, and (5) adjusted diluted earnings per share. We also provide reconciliations of these measures to the most directly comparable financial measures calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP.

Management believes the use of each of these non-GAAP measures assists investors in understanding our business by (1) removing the impact of items from our operating results that, in our opinion, do not reflect our core operating performance, (2) providing investors with the same information our management uses internally to assess our core operating performance, and (3) presenting comparable financial results between periods. In addition, in the case of revenues (excluding fuel surcharge), we believe the measure is useful to investors because it isolates volume, price, and cost changes directly related to industry demand and the way we operate our business from the external factor of fluctuating fuel prices and the programs we have in place to manage fuel price fluctuations. Fuel-related costs and their impact on our industry are important to our results of operations, but they are often independent of other, more relevant factors affecting our results of operations and our industry.

Although we believe these non-GAAP measures are useful to investors, they have limitations as analytical tools and may not be comparable to similar measures disclosed by other companies. You should not consider the non-GAAP measures in this report in isolation or as substitutes for, or alternatives to, analysis of our results as reported under GAAP. The exclusion of unusual or infrequent items or other adjustments reflected in the non-GAAP measures should not be construed as an inference that our future results will not be affected by unusual or infrequent items or by other items similar to such adjustments. Our management compensates for these limitations by relying primarily on our GAAP results in addition to using the non-GAAP measures.

Adjustments to arrive at non-GAAP measures are made at the enterprise level, with the exception of fuel surcharge revenues, which are not included in segment revenues.

Revenues (excluding fuel surcharge)

We define “revenues (excluding fuel surcharge)” as operating revenues less fuel surcharge revenues, which are excluded from revenues at the segment level. Included below is a reconciliation of operating revenues, the most closely comparable GAAP financial measure, to revenues (excluding fuel surcharge).

Our estimated tax rate on non-GAAP items is determined annually using the applicable consolidated federal and state effective tax rate, modified to remove the impact of tax credits and adjustments that are not applicable to the specific items. Due to the differences in the tax treatment of items excluded from non-GAAP income, as well as the methodology applied to our estimated annual tax rates as described above, our estimated tax rate on non-GAAP items may differ from our GAAP tax rate and from our actual tax liabilities.
