Landstar System Inc. Declares Quarterly Dividend, Payable on May 29, 2015; Reports Unaudited Consolidated Earnings and Operating Results for the Thirteen Weeks Ended March 28, 2015; Provides Earnings Guidance for the Second Quarter of 2015

Landstar System Inc. announced that its Board of Directors has declared a quarterly dividend of $0.07 per share payable on May 29, 2015, to stockholders of record as of the close of business on May 7, 2015. It is currently the intention of the Board to pay dividends on a quarterly basis going forward. The company reported unaudited consolidated earnings and operating results for the thirteen weeks ended March 28, 2015. For the period, the company reported revenue of $762,380,000 against $688,197,000 a year ago. Operating income was $49,045,000 against $45,014,000 a year ago. Income before income taxes was $48,264,000 against $44,246,000 a year ago. Net income was $30,015,000 or $0.67 per basic and diluted share against $27,638,000 or $0.61 per basic and diluted share a year ago. Cash flow from operations for the first quarter of 2015 was $49 million and cash capital expenditures were $2 million. For the period, the company reported the number of loads hauled via truck exceeded the 2014 first quarter by 6% and the number of loads hauled via railroads, ocean cargo carriers and air cargo carriers increased 32% over the 2014 first quarter. The growth in the number of loads hauled via truck was driven by a 32% increase in less-than-truckload volume and a 7% increase in the number of loads hauled via van equipment. The number of loads hauled via unsided/platform equipment was relatively flat to the 2014 first quarter, impacted by an 11% decrease in the number of heavy/specialized loads, which comprised approximately 28% of Landstar's unsided/platform revenue in the 2015 first quarter. Revenue per load on loads hauled via truck was at all-time seasonal highs in the 2015 first quarter. After a 7% increase in revenue per load on loads hauled via truck in the first eight weeks of 2015 compared to the first eight weeks of 2014, though, period-over-prior-year period truck revenue per load slowed into March, as expected. Truck revenue per load in the final five weeks of the 2015 first quarter was 1% lower as compared to the final five weeks of the 2014 first quarter mostly due to the exceptionally strong truck revenue per load experienced in March 2014 and the impact of lower diesel fuel costs on loads hauled via truck brokerage carriers. Despite higher insurance and claims expense caused mostly by an unfavorable jury verdict in the 2015 first quarter related to an accident from a prior year, operating margin was 42.5%. For the second quarter of 2015, the company expects the number of loads hauled via truck in the 2015 second quarter to increase in a mid-single digit range over the 2014 second quarter.  The company anticipates truck revenue per load in the 2015 second quarter to be relatively flat to the 2014 second quarter. The company’s expectation is that pricing conditions for truck services in the 2015 second quarter will remain similar to those experienced in March, with a stable, yet relatively tight truck capacity market and a low per gallon cost of diesel fuel. Assuming the current environment continues throughout the 2015 second quarter, the company anticipates revenue for the 2015 second quarter to be in a range of $830 million to $880 million and, assuming that range of estimated revenue would anticipate 2015 second quarter diluted earnings per share to be in a range of $0.87 to $0.92 per share compared to $0.80 per diluted share in the 2014 second quarter.
