CN announced a CAD 20 million investment in the expansion of its cold supply chain capacity to help producers and distributors of chilled or frozen foods grow their businesses in North American and overseas markets. To accommodate growth, CN is acquiring 200 more domestic, 53-foot temperature-controlled containers, which will add to the current fleet of containers circulating inside North America. The company is also acquiring 32 electrical generators to move 40-foot international marine reefers to and from CN-served ports on CN intermodal trains. The power packs provide economies of scale by connecting up to 17 international marine reefers at a time. CN, in collaboration with other railroads, offers cold supply chain rail services between Canada-United States-Mexico, as well as between Canada and overseas markets.

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.
