CN Targets CAD 2.7 Billion in 2015 Capital Investments to Raise Network Safety and Efficiency and Grow the Business

CN announced the details of its 2015 plan to invest CAD 2.7 billion in rail infrastructure maintenance and improvements, as well as in new capacity, equipment and technology to raise network safety and efficiency, improve service and support future growth. CN is planning to spend approximately CAD 1.4 billion on track infrastructure. This will include the replacement of rail, ties and other track materials, bridge improvements, as well as various branch-line upgrades. Such investments allow CN to improve the network and are part of a multi-year program aimed at maintaining a high level of safety and efficiency while helping CN's customers grow. Within its track infrastructure spending, CN is allocating CAD 100 million to upgrade its feeder network. This investment is part of the CAD 500 million program announced earlier this year to upgrade branch lines that are experiencing rising volumes of traffic. CN will also spend approximately CAD 800 million in 2015 on growth and productivity initiatives such as yard improvements, intermodal terminals, transload and distribution centres and information technology. CN safety investments this year will include additional fault detection systems such as wayside inspection system technology, hot wheel detectors, wheel impact load detectors, signaled sidings to detect broken rails, and new geometry testing and joint-bar inspection technology. CN will also spend approximately CAD 800 million in 2015 on growth and productivity initiatives such as yard improvements, intermodal terminals, transload and distribution centres and information technology.

Canadian National Railway Company Reports Unaudited Consolidated Earnings Results for the First Quarter Ended March 31, 2015; Reaffirms Earnings Guidance for the Year 2015

Canadian National Railway Company reported unaudited consolidated earnings results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2015. Net income was CAD 704 million, or CAD 0.86 per diluted share, compared with net income of CAD 623 million, or CAD 0.75 per diluted share, for the year-earlier quarter. First-quarter 2015 diluted earnings per share (EPS) increased 30% to CAD 0.86 from adjusted diluted EPS of CAD 0.66 in the first quarter of 2014, which excluded a gain on a rail line sale. First-quarter 2015 revenues increased 15% to CAD 3,098 million. Free cash flow for first-quarter 2015 was CAD 521 million, up from CAD 494 million for the year-earlier quarter. Operating income was CAD 1,063 million against CAD 820 million a year ago. Income before income taxes was CAD 963 million against CAD 822 million a year ago. Net cash provided by operating activities was CAD 992 million against CAD 645 million a year ago. Property additions were CAD 468 million against CAD 248 million a year ago. Adjusted net income was CAD 704 million or CAD 0.86 per diluted share against CAD 551 million or CAD 0.66 per diluted share a year ago. On a constant currency basis, the company's net income for the first quarter of 2015 would have been lower by CAD 56 million, or CAD 0.07 per diluted share. The increase in revenues were mainly attributable to the positive translation impact of the weaker Canadian dollar on U.S.-dollar-denominated revenues; higher volumes of Canadian grain and potash; strong overseas intermodal demand; higher shipments of lumber and panels to U.S. markets; higher volumes of frac sand; and freight rate increases. These factors were partly offset by decreased shipments of coal due to weaker global demand. Overall, revenues were favorably affected by improved operating conditions due to a more normal winter when compared with the same period of 2014, which enhanced the company's ability to serve its customers. Adjusted EBITDA was CAD 5,987 million against CAD 4,942 million for the same period a year ago. EBITDA (excluding Other income) was CAD 5,957 million against CAD 4,914 million for the same period a year ago. The company reaffirmed its outlook for 2015. The company expects double-digit EPS growth in 2015 versus last year's adjusted diluted EPS of CAD 3.76, despite weaker than expected energy markets and a mixed economy. The company also raising its capital investment program for the year from CAD 2.6 billion to approximately CAD 2.7 billion allocating an additional CAD 100 million to safety-related infrastructure investments.
