The increase included $37.0 million in revenues from new operations, including Freightliner, RCP&E and Pinsly Arkansas. These revenue increases were partially offset by a $13.4 million decrease from the net depreciation of foreign currencies relative to the U.S. dollar. Income from operations was $72,620,000 compared with $74,875,000 for the same period last year. Income before income taxes was $40,766,000 compared with $62,904,000 for the same period last year.

Purchase of property and equipment was $66,267,000 compared with $71,618,000 for the same period last year. Free cash flow was $36.6 million against $14.7 million a year ago. Net debt was $2.3 billion. On a consolidated basis, for the second quarter of 2015, the company expects revenues in the range of $565 million to $580 million and depreciation and amortization expense is expected to be $48 million. Company’s effective tax rate in the quarter is expected to be 37% with diluted shares of 57.2 million. The company is expecting diluted earnings in the range of $1.05 to $1.10 per share. For 2015, the company expects revenues between $2.13 billion and $2.16 billion and tax rate around 36%. The company expects depreciation and amortization expense to be $189 million. Company’s diluted earnings per share are now expected to be in the range of $4.40 to $4.60 with diluted shares outstanding of 57.2 million. The EPS guidance excludes the short line tax credit and if the short line tax credit will pass, that would increase earnings by approximately $0.48 per share. And also, this guidance excludes about $0.05 of expected severance and restructuring expenses in Australia as well as Freightliner acquisition-related expenses of approximately $0.43.
