Kansas City Southern Announces Unaudited Consolidated Earnings Results for the First Quarter Ended March 31, 2015; Revises Capital Expenditure Guidance for the Year 2015

Kansas City Southern announced unaudited consolidated earnings results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2015. For the quarter, the company reported revenues of $603.1 million compared to $607.4 million a year ago. Due to the combined impacts of foreign exchange, lower fuel surcharge revenues and carload declines in a few commodity areas, KCS consolidated revenue declined 1% for the first quarter of 2014. Operating income was $178.2 million compared to $160.0 million a year ago. Income before income taxes was $151.6 million compared to $143.0 million a year ago. Net income available to common stockholders was $100.7 million or $0.91 per basic and diluted share compared to $93.6 million or $0.85 per basic and diluted share a year ago. Adjusted operating income was $187.8 million compared to $189.9 million a year ago. Adjusted net income was $114.4 million compared to $116.2 million a year ago. Adjusted net income available to common stockholders was $113.9 million or $1.03 per diluted share compared to $115.8 million or $1.05 per diluted share a year ago. The company reduced its capital expenditures for 2015 from its original guidance of $700 million to $720 million down to $650 million to $670 million. Most of the reductions are due to scaling back capacity projects to better match when that anticipated volume growth will be experienced.

Kansas City Southern Revises Revenue Guidance for the Full Year 2015; Provides Earnings Guidance for the First Quarter of 2015

Kansas City Southern revised revenue guidance for the full year 2015. The company now expected low single-digit revenue growth, reduced from the mid single-digit revenue growth provided in the previous full-year 2015 guidance. The reduced revenue guidance reflects slower year-to-date carload growth primarily from the energy sector, along with a continued deterioration in the value of the Mexican peso against the USD and lower fuel surcharge revenues driven by lower WTI prices. The company expects the impact of lower carload volumes to result in an approximate 2% lower revenue growth for the year as compared to prior guidance. For the first quarter of 2015, the company expected lower crude oil and natural gas prices are contributing to an expected approximate 10% decline in first quarter 2015 energy revenues. Due to the continued uncertainty in the energy markets with the recent decline in crude prices to six-year lows, the company believes crude oil growth for 2015 will be lower than expected. Additionally, lower natural gas prices continue to have a negative impact on the company's coal business, resulting in an expected approximate 20% decline in coal revenues during the first quarter of 2015. The company is also experiencing lower than expected frac sand and metals revenues related to a significant decline in new drilling operations in the United States. Additionally first quarter 2015 adjusted diluted earnings per share is expected to be flat to slightly higher than first quarter 2014.
