fourth quarter ended December 31, 2012. Net income for the same quarter of
2011 was $56.1 million, or $0.70 per common diluted share. Included in the
results for the fourth quarter of 2011 was a pre-tax gain of $17.0 million, or
$0.14 per common diluted share, due to flood-related insurance settlements.

Revenues for the fourth quarter of 2012 increased 11% to $1.0 billion compared
to revenues of $914.3 million for the same quarter of 2011. The Company
reported an operating profit of $158.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2012,
a 14% increase compared to an operating profit of $139.5 million for the same
quarter last year.

For the year ended December 31, 2012, the Company reported net income
attributable to Trinity stockholders of $255.2 million, or $3.19 per common
diluted share. In 2011, the Company reported net income of $142.2 million, or
$1.77 per common diluted share. Prior year results included a pre-tax net gain
of $15.5 million or $0.12 per common diluted share, due to flood-related
insurance settlements. Revenues for the year ended December 31, 2012 were $3.8
billion, a 30% increase compared to revenues of $2.9 billion in 2011.

“I am pleased with our strong financial results for the fourth quarter and our
overall performance during 2012,” said Timothy R. Wallace, Trinity’s Chairman,
CEO and President. “We have worked diligently over the past decade to position
our company to perform well through a variety of economic conditions.
Trinity’s competency in manufacturing flexibility provides us the ability to
redirect a portion of our manufacturing resources towards select areas that
have strong demand levels for our products. In 2012, we achieved significant
growth in consolidated revenues and earnings despite continuing uncertainty
within some areas of the economy.”

“During 2013, we will continue to invest resources to position our company to
pursue opportunities for infrastructure-related products that support the
growing needs in the energy, chemical, transportation, and construction
industries,” Mr. Wallace continued. “At this point, we have been successful in
obtaining order backlogs in several of our major businesses that will provide
long production runs for products serving these industries.”

Business Group Results

In the fourth quarter of 2012, the Rail Group reported revenues of $571.1
million and an operating profit of $70.7 million compared to revenues of
$453.3 million and an operating profit of $34.4 million in the fourth quarter
of 2011. Results for the fourth quarter of 2012 included approximately $0.04
per common diluted share of after-tax costs associated with the repositioning
of a portion of the Company's production capacity. The Rail Group shipped
4,960 railcars and received orders for 5,620 railcars during the fourth
quarter. The Rail Group backlog increased to $3.7 billion at December 31,
2012, representing 31,990 railcars, compared to a backlog of $3.3 billion as
of September 30, 2012, representing 31,330 railcars. The increase in backlog
as of December 31, 2012 reflects the value of orders taken during the quarter
as well as contractual pricing adjustments on long-term orders previously
received.

During the fourth quarter of 2012, the Railcar Leasing and Management Services
Group reported leasing and management revenues of $132.6 million compared to
$127.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2011 due to continued growth in the
lease fleet and higher rental rates. In addition, the Group recognized revenue
of $18.1 million in sales of railcars from the lease fleet during the fourth
quarter compared to $29.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2011. Proceeds from
the sale of railcars from the lease fleet owned for more than a year at the
time of sale totaling $31.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2012 and $42.7
million in the fourth quarter of 2011 are not included in revenue. Operating
profit for this Group was $72.9 million for the fourth quarter of 2012
compared to operating profit of $75.9 million during the fourth quarter of
2011. Included in the operating results for the fourth quarter of 2012 were
$15.3 million of profit from railcar sales totaling $49.5 million compared to
$18.4 million of profit from railcar sales totaling $71.9 million for the same
period last year.

The Inland Barge Group reported revenues of $165.4 million compared to
revenues of $149.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2011. The increase in
revenues was due to higher volumes and a change in mix of barge types.
Operating profit for this Group was $31.2 million in the fourth quarter of
2012 compared to $39.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2011. Fourth quarter
2011 operating profit included a gain of $17.0 million due to flood-related
insurance settlements. During the fourth quarter of 2012, the Inland Barge
Group received orders of $193 million, and as of December 31, 2012 had a
backlog of $564 million compared to a backlog of $537 million as of September
30, 2012.

The Energy Equipment Group reported revenues of $167.3 million in the fourth
quarter of 2012 compared to revenues of $125.0 million in the same quarter of
2011. Revenues increased compared to the same period in 2011 as a result of
higher structural wind tower shipments and increased demand for containers and
tank heads. Operating profit for the fourth quarter of 2012 increased to $8.5
million compared to a loss of $0.9 million in the same quarter last year due
to manufacturing challenges that negatively impacted the Group's 2011 results.
The backlog for structural wind towers as of December 31, 2012 was $680
million compared to $754 million as of September 30, 2012. Approximately $413
million of this backlog is subject to litigation with a customer for the
customer's breach of a long-term supply contract for the manufacture of
towers.

Revenues in the Construction Products Group were $109.8 million in the fourth
quarter of 2012 compared to revenues of $115.2 million in the fourth quarter
of 2011. The Group recorded an operating profit of $9.4 million in the fourth
quarter of 2012 compared to an operating profit of $11.7 million in the fourth
quarter of 2011. The decline in revenues and operating profit for the fourth
quarter of 2012 compared to the same period in 2011 was primarily attributable
to competitive pricing pressures and higher operating expenses in the Highway
Products business offset partially by higher volumes and improved operating
efficiencies in the Aggregates business. In December 2012, the Company entered
into an agreement to sell its remaining ready-mix concrete operations which
have been historically reported as a component of the Construction Products
Group. This divestiture, expected to close during 2013, is considered a
discontinued operation and, accordingly, the effects of its operations have
been excluded from the Construction Products Group for financial reporting
purposes.

Earnings Outlook

The Company’s earnings guidance for the first quarter of 2013 is between $0.75
and $0.82 per common diluted share compared to $0.66 per common diluted share
in the first quarter of 2012. For the full year of 2013, the Company
anticipates earnings per common diluted share of between $3.45 and $3.75
compared to full year earnings per common diluted share of $3.19 in 2012.
Results for the first quarter and full year 2013 could be impacted by a number
of factors, including, among others: the operating leverage and efficiencies
that can be achieved by the Company’s manufacturing businesses; the level of
sales of railcars from the leasing portfolio; the amount of profit
eliminations due to railcar additions to the Leasing Group; and the impact of
weather conditions on businesses within the Construction Products Group.

Trinity Industries, Inc.
Reconciliation of EBITDA
(in millions)
(unaudited)

“EBITDA” is defined as income (loss) from continuing operations plus interest
expense, income taxes, and depreciation and amortization including goodwill
impairment charges. EBITDA is not a calculation based on generally accepted
accounting principles. The amounts included in the EBITDA calculation are,
however, derived from amounts included in the historical statements of
operations data. In addition, EBITDA should not be considered as an
alternative to net income or operating income as an indicator of our operating
performance, or as an alternative to operating cash flows as a measure of
liquidity. We believe EBITDA assists investors in comparing a company's
performance on a consistent basis without regard to depreciation and
amortization, which can vary significantly depending upon many factors.
However, the EBITDA measure presented in this press release may not always be
comparable to similarly titled measures by other companies due to differences
in the components of the calculation.
