  • Total revenues of $569.0 million, down 9%
  • Operating income of $52.8 million, down 10%; non-GAAP adjusted operating income of $57.7 million, down 3%
  • Operating margin of 9.3%, flat year over year; non-GAAP adjusted operating margin of 10.1%, up 70 bps
  • Diluted EPS of $0.56, down 9%; non-GAAP adjusted diluted EPS of $0.62, down 2%

OMAHA, Neb., July 29, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Werner Enterprises, Inc. (NASDAQ: WERN), one of the nation’s largest transportation and logistics companies, today reported financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2020.

“Despite the unprecedented and significant challenges of managing our business in a COVID-19 economy, our entire Werner team embraced these challenges and produced strong results in second quarter 2020,” said Derek J. Leathers, President and Chief Executive Officer. “Our front-line professional drivers and mechanics stepped up in a big way and ensured that essential goods were safely delivered on time and damage free. Our non-driver associates were careful to remain safe and healthy, while remaining productive and efficient.

“Our results in second quarter 2020 reflect freight demand in One-Way Truckload and Logistics that was lower than the same period a year ago. In April 2020, the impact of some customers closing or significantly curtailing their businesses caused a weakness in freight volumes. By mid-May and into June, many of these customers began to reopen their businesses which improved freight volumes as the quarter progressed. Thus far in July 2020, One-Way Truckload demand is relatively strong and higher than July 2019.

“We proactively managed and adapted our fleet and cost structure without compromising outstanding service. This enabled us to minimize the impact of the softer freight market on our results.

“Our freight base is designed to effectively manage through a more difficult economic environment, as a significant portion of our revenues comes from delivering essential goods and products. Revenues from our top 100 customers were 86% of our total revenues in the first half of 2020, and 64% of those revenues were from the discount retail, home improvement retail, food and beverage and consumer packaged goods verticals.”

Total revenues for the quarter decreased $58.6 million to $569.0 million versus the prior year quarter, primarily attributable to lower fuel surcharge and Logistics revenues.

Operating income of $52.8 million decreased $5.6 million, or 10%. Operating margin of 9.3% was flat, despite the more challenging freight and rate market in One-Way Truckload and Logistics. Our GAAP results included $3.7 million, or four cents per share, of additional depreciation expense related to a change in estimated life of certain trucks expected to be sold in 2020 (previously disclosed in first quarter 2020). On a non-GAAP basis, adjusted operating income of $57.7 million decreased $1.5 million, or 3%. Adjusted operating margin of 10.1% improved 70 basis points from 9.4% for the same quarter last year.

Interest expense of $1.2 million was $0.3 million lower, due to lower average borrowings. The effective income tax rate during the quarter was 24.8% compared to 25.2% in second quarter 2019. The current quarter tax rate was slightly lower than our expected range of 25% to 26% because of favorable discrete income tax items.

Net income of $39.1 million decreased 10%. On a non-GAAP basis, adjusted net income declined 3% to $42.8 million compared to $43.9 million for the same quarter last year. Diluted earnings per share (EPS) for the quarter of $0.56 decreased 9%. On a non-GAAP basis, adjusted diluted EPS of $0.62 decreased 2% compared to $0.63 in second quarter 2019.

Truckload Transportation Services (TTS) Segment

  • Revenues of $445.1 million decreased $34.9 million
  • Operating income of $51.2 million decreased $0.4 million, or 1%; non-GAAP adjusted operating income of $56.1 million increased $3.7 million, or 7%
  • Operating margin of 11.5% increased 70 basis points from 10.8%; non-GAAP adjusted operating margin of 12.6% increased 170 basis points from 10.9%
  • Average segment trucks in service totaled 7,762, a decrease of 175 trucks year over year
  • Dedicated unit trucks at quarter end totaled 4,535, or 59% of the total TTS segment fleet, compared to 4,580 trucks, or 58%, a year ago

Revenues decreased $34.9 million due to a $28.3 million decrease in fuel surcharge revenues and a 2.2% decrease in average trucks in service, partially offset by a 1.1% increase in average revenues per truck. The average revenues per truck increase was due primarily to an increase in average revenues per total mile, partially offset by a decline in average miles per truck. The increase in average revenues per total mile was due primarily to relative strength in Dedicated pricing, partially offset by a 1.9% decrease in One-Way Truckload pricing. The percentage decrease in One-Way Truckload average revenues per total mile was lower than anticipated, due to the improving freight market in May and June 2020.

In our Dedicated fleet, freight demand remained strong in second quarter 2020. Approximately three-quarters of our Dedicated revenues are with essential products customers, and their freight volumes were generally strong during second quarter 2020. A few Dedicated customers were more significantly impacted by COVID-19 and had lower volumes. Our Dedicated truck count temporarily declined by 150 trucks from first quarter 2020 to second quarter 2020 due to customers impacted by COVID-19, a lack of new business implementations in second quarter 2020 and lower driver availability. We expect Dedicated new business implementations to begin to pick up in third quarter 2020 as businesses reopen. 

In second quarter 2020, TTS company truck miles decreased by approximately 2.5 million miles, and independent contractor miles decreased by approximately 3.9 million miles.

Comparisons of key financial metrics for the TTS segment, including operating ratios (actual and net of fuel surcharge revenues), are shown below. Fluctuating fuel prices and fuel surcharge revenues impact the total company operating ratio and the TTS segment’s operating ratio when fuel surcharges are reported on a gross basis as revenues versus netting against fuel expenses. Eliminating fuel surcharge revenues, which are generally a more volatile source of revenue, provides a more consistent basis for comparing the results of operations from period to period.

Werner Logistics Segment

  • Revenues of $110.2 million decreased $20.7 million, or 16%
  • Gross margin of 15.7% decreased 40 bps
  • Operating income of $3.1 million decreased $2.0 million, or 39%
  • Operating margin of 2.8% decreased 120 bps

Truckload Logistics revenues (60% of total Logistics revenues) declined 24% due to a softer freight market, which reduced volumes by 9%. Lower rates and lower fuel prices reduced all-in Truckload Logistics revenue per load by 15%. Intermodal revenues declined 10%, while International revenues increased 20%.

The gross margin percentage decreased 40 bps to 15.7% due primarily to a softer freight market and contractual brokerage sustaining a rising cost of capacity in May and June 2020. The logistics operating margin declined 120 bps to 2.8% as the 18% decline in gross profit exceeded the 11% decline in other operating expenses.

Cash Flow and Capital Allocation

Cash flow from operations in second quarter 2020 was $154.0 million compared to $81.6 million in second quarter 2019, an increase of 89%, due primarily to an improvement in certain working capital items.

Net capital expenditures in second quarter 2020 were $88.8 million compared to $79.0 million in second quarter 2019, an increase of 12%. We plan to continue to invest in new trucks and trailers and our terminals to improve our driver experience, increase operational efficiency and more effectively manage our maintenance, safety and fuel costs. The average age of our truck fleet remains low by industry standards and was 2.0 years as of June 30, 2020.

Gains on sales of equipment in second quarter 2020 were $0.9 million, or $0.01 per share, compared to $4.5 million, or $0.05 per share, in the prior-year quarter. Year over year, we sold 20% fewer trucks and 23% fewer trailers, and we realized significantly lower average gains per truck and slightly lower average gains per trailer. Pricing in the market for our used trucks was weak in second quarter 2020 due to low demand. As a reminder, gains on sales of assets are reflected as a reduction of Other Operating Expenses in our income statement.

We did not repurchase shares of our common stock in second quarter 2020. As of June 30, 2020, we had 4.0 million shares remaining under our share repurchase authorization.

We repaid $75 million of debt in second quarter 2020 and had $175 million of debt outstanding as of June 30, 2020. As of June 30, 2020, we had $65 million of cash and over $1.1 billion of stockholders’ equity.

(1) During second quarter 2020 and 2019, we accrued pre-tax insurance and claims expense for interest related to a previously disclosed excess adverse jury verdict rendered on May 17, 2018 in a lawsuit arising from a December 2014 accident. The Company is appealing this verdict. Additional information about the accident was included in our Current Report on Form 8-K dated May 17, 2018. Under our insurance policies in effect on the date of this accident, our maximum liability for this accident is $10.0 million (plus pre-judgment and post-judgment interest) with premium-based insurance coverage that exceeds the jury verdict amount. Interest is accrued at $0.4 million per month until such time as the outcome of our appeal is finalized excluding the months of June and July 2019 where the plaintiffs requested an extension of time to respond to our appeal. Management believes excluding the effect of this item provides a more useful comparison of our performance from period to period. This item is included in the Truckload Transportation Services segment in our Segment Information table. 

(2) During first quarter 2020, we changed the estimated life of certain trucks currently expected to be sold in 2020 to more rapidly depreciate these trucks to their estimated residual values due to the weak used truck market. These trucks will continue to depreciate at the same higher rate per truck until the trucks are sold. Management believes excluding the effect of this unusual and infrequent item provides a more useful comparison of our performance from period to period.  This item is included in the Truckload Transportation Services segment in our Segment Information table.

(3) Our definition of the non-GAAP measures adjusted operating income, adjusted net income and adjusted diluted earnings per share begins with (a) operating expenses, the most comparable GAAP measure. We subtract the insurance and claims jury verdict interest accrual and the additional depreciation expense from (a) to arrive at adjusted operating expenses, which we subtract from operating revenues to arrive at (b) adjusted operating income. We subtract (c) total other expense (income) from (b) adjusted operating income to arrive at (d) adjusted income before income taxes. We calculate adjusted income tax expense by applying the incremental income tax rate excluding discrete items to the net pre-tax adjustments and adding this additional income tax to GAAP income tax expense. We then subtract adjusted income tax expense from adjusted income before income taxes to arrive at adjusted net income. The adjusted net income is divided by the diluted shares outstanding to calculate the adjusted diluted earnings per share.
