Knight Transportation Inc. Reaffirms Earnings Guidance for the Third Quarter of 2015 and Provides Earnings Guidance for the Fourth Quarter of 2015

Knight Transportation Inc. reaffirmed earnings guidance for the third quarter of 2015 and provided earnings guidance for the fourth quarter of 2015. Based on the current truckload market as well as recent trends, the company is reaffirming its previously announced third quarter 2015 guidance of $0.33 to $0.36 per diluted share, and then the company is also establishing its expected range for the fourth quarter of 2015, which is $0.37 to $0.39 per diluted share. The company also expects driver wages and hiring-related costs to continue to be inflationary, and the company also expects its third quarter and fourth quarter gain on sales to be modestly lower than the prior year, not that the market isn't still strong, but the timing of when it pull equipment out and when it trade and sell it may impact that. And as far as its tax rate, the company expects that to normalize in 2015 in mid-39s range, excluding any unusual items. The company expects to see similar year-over-year fleet growth continue in the third quarter, which would be in that 19% to 21% on a year-over-year basis. The company will lap the Barr-Nunn acquisition after the third quarter and it had expect overall fleet growth, as previously mentioned, in that 14% to 15% range when compared to 2014.
