GATX Corporation Reports 2023 Fourth-Quarter and Full-Year Results


GATX Corporation (NYSE: GATX) today reported 2023 fourth-quarter net income of $66.0 million or $1.81 per diluted share, compared to net income of $48.4 million or $1.36 per diluted share in the fourth quarter of 2022. The 2023 fourth-quarter results include a net positive impact from Tax Adjustments and Other Items of $0.07 per diluted share. The 2022 fourth-quarter results include a net negative impact from Tax Adjustments and Other Items of $0.18 per diluted share.

Net income for the full-year 2023 was $259.2 million or $7.12 per diluted share, compared to $155.9 million or $4.35 per diluted share in the prior year. The 2023 full-year results include a net positive impact from Tax Adjustments and Other Items of $0.05 per diluted share. The 2022 full-year results include a net negative impact from Tax Adjustments and Other Items of $1.72 per diluted share. Details related to Tax Adjustments and Other Items are provided in the attached Supplemental Information.

"GATX achieved excellent financial results in the fourth quarter, resulting in a very strong year in terms of net earnings, earnings per share and investment volume," said Robert C. Lyons, president and chief executive officer of GATX. "The railcar leasing environment in North America remains solid. In 2023, we capitalized on the favorable market conditions by successfully increasing renewal lease rates while extending lease terms. This strategy enabled us to continue locking in high-quality, long-term committed cash flow. The renewal lease rate change of GATX's Lease Price Index was positive 33.5% for the quarter, with an average renewal term of 65 months. Furthermore, we identified opportunities to invest in attractive markets while also optimizing our fleet by selling railcars into an active secondary market. For the full year, Rail North America's investment volume was $977 million, while remarketing income was $112 million.

"Rail International also performed well as it maintained solid fleet utilization at year end and continued to experience increases in renewal lease rates compared to expiring rates for most railcar types. Both Rail Europe and Rail India progressed against their goal of growing and diversifying their fleets. In particular, Rail India had record investment volume in 2023 and increased its fleet size by over 2,900 new railcars.

"In Portfolio Management, the Rolls-Royce and Partners Finance affiliates outperformed our original expectation due to the strong recovery in global passenger air travel. Demand for engines within the RRPF portfolio was very strong, and revenues from GATX wholly owned engines exceeded our expectations for the year. Historically, global air travel has been extremely resilient through economic cycles and macro shocks, and this resiliency was proven once again as air travel continues its strong recovery from pandemic-era lows.

"In 2023, we executed our strategy to invest in attractive leasing assets across our global businesses. In addition to successfully placing deliveries of new railcars under our supply agreements in North America, we identified incremental opportunities to acquire over 2,300 railcars for $324 million. In Rail International, we invested over $380 million and added a combined total of over 4,600 new railcars in Europe and India. In Portfolio Management, we increased our direct investment in aircraft spare engines by acquiring 10 engines for over $260 million. Overall, our full-year investment volume exceeded $1.6 billion."

Mr. Lyons added, "For 2024, we expect Rail North America's segment profit to increase, driven by higher lease revenue as we continue to add new railcars to the fleet and renew expiring leases at higher lease rates across many car types. We also anticipate higher segment profit in Rail International due to more railcars on lease at higher lease rates. In Portfolio Management, we anticipate robust demand for aircraft spare engines, which should result in another year of strong earnings from RRPF and our wholly owned engines.

Mr. Lyons concluded, "Over the past several years, GATX has made disciplined investments that position us well for the future, and we will continue to look for opportunities to invest prudently across our global businesses. We remain intensely focused on generating attractive risk-adjusted returns for our shareholders. Based on our current outlook, we expect 2024 earnings to be in the range of $7.30?$7.70 per diluted share, which would represent another strong year for GATX."

RAIL NORTH AMERICA

Rail North America reported segment profit of $66.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2023, compared to $83.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2022. For the full year, Rail North America reported segment profit of $307.3 million in 2023, compared to $321.3 million in 2022. Lower fourth-quarter and full-year 2023 segment profit was primarily driven by higher maintenance expense due to higher repair volume and higher interest expense, partly offset by higher revenues.

As of Dec. 31, 2023, Rail North America's wholly owned fleet was approximately 110,500 cars, including more than 9,300 boxcars. The following fleet statistics and performance discussion exclude the boxcar fleet.

Fleet utilization was 99.3% at the end of the fourth quarter, compared to 99.3% at the end of the prior quarter and 99.5% at 2022 year end. During the fourth quarter, the renewal lease rate change of the GATX Lease Price Index (LPI) was positive 33.5%. This compares to positive 33.4% in the prior quarter and positive 24.4% in the fourth quarter of 2022. The average lease renewal term for railcars included in the LPI during the fourth quarter was 65 months, compared to 65 months in the prior quarter and 52 months in the fourth quarter of 2022. The 2023 fourth-quarter renewal success rate was 87.1%, compared to 83.6% in the prior quarter and 85.7% in the fourth quarter of 2022.

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 $34.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2023, compared to $18.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2022. Full-year segment profit was $113.4 million in 2023, compared to $85.9 million in 2022. 2023 full-year results include a net positive impact of $0.3 million from Tax Adjustments and Other Items. 2022 fourth-quarter and full-year results include net negative impacts of $3.8 million and $14.6 million, respectively, from Tax Adjustments and Other Items. Results in 2023 were favorably impacted by more railcars on lease.

As of Dec. 31, 2023, GATX Rail Europe's (GRE) fleet consisted of over 29,200 cars and utilization was 95.9%, compared to 96.0% at the end of the prior quarter and 99.3% at 2022 year end.

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

PORTFOLIO MANAGEMENT

Portfolio Management reported segment profit of $31.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2023, compared to segment profit of $23.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2022. 2023 and 2022 fourth-quarter results include net negative impacts of $2.6 million and $2.8 million, respectively, from Tax Adjustments and Other Items. 2023 full-year segment profit was $106.4 million, compared to $14.7 million in 2022. 2023 and 2022 full-year results include net negative impacts of $4.0 million and $49.6 million, respectively, from Tax Adjustments and Other Items. Additional details are provided in the attached Supplemental Information under Impact of Tax Adjustments and Other Items.

Higher 2023 fourth-quarter and full-year segment profit was predominately driven by stronger operating performance and higher remarketing income at the Rolls-Royce and Partners Finance affiliates. Increased earnings from GATX Engine Leasing, the Company's wholly owned engine portfolio, also contributed to higher segment profit in 2023.

_________

(1)

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.

(2)

In 2022, we made the decision to sell the Specialized Gas Vessels. We have recorded gains and losses associated with the subsequent impairments and sales of these assets.

(3)

In 2022, we made the decision to exit our rail business in Russia ("Rail Russia") and recorded losses in 2022 associated with the impairment of the net assets. In 2023, we sold Rail Russia and recorded a gain on the final sale of this business.

(4)

Reserve recorded as part of an executed agreement for anticipated remediation costs at a previously owned property, sold in 1974.

(5)

Deferred income tax adjustments attributable to state tax rate reductions in 2023 and an enacted corporate income tax rate reduction in Austria in 2022.

(6)

Valuation allowance adjustment associated with the realizability of state net operating losses in future tax years.

(7)

Impairment losses related to aircraft spare engines in Russia that RRPF does not expect to recover.

_________

(1)

GATX's Lease Price Index (LPI) is an internally-generated business indicator that measures renewal activity for our North American railcar 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. The average renewal lease term is reported in months and reflects the average renewal lease term in the LPI.

 

In the second quarter of 2023, we modified the methodology of the LPI calculation to more consistently reflect actual trends in renewal lease rates and renewal lease terms across the North American non-boxcar fleet. We believe this modification provides investors and other constituents with a more complete representation of lease rate and term performance. The prior period LPI metrics presented above have been updated to reflect the change in calculation. For further details, please see the GATX press release dated July 6, 2023.

(2)

The renewal success rate represents the percentage of railcars on expiring leases that were renewed with the existing lessee. The renewal success rate is an important metric because railcars returned by our customers may remain idle or incur additional maintenance and freight costs prior to being leased to new customers.

(3)

Excludes boxcar fleet.

(4)

As reported and revised by the Federal Reserve.

(5)

As reported by the Association of American Railroads (AAR).

(6)

As reported by the Railway Supply Institute (RSI).
