Norfolk Southern Corporation, Q1 2015 Guidance/Update Call, Apr 14, 2015

Norfolk Southern Corporation, Q1 2015 Guidance/Update Call, Apr 14, 2015

Norfolk Southern Corporation Provides Earnings Guidance for the First Quarter of 2015

Norfolk Southern Corporation provided earnings guidance for the first quarter of 2015. For the period, the company expected first quarter 2015 earnings at $1.00 per share, down 15% from the same quarter last year. The reduction in earnings is primarily due to lower than expected revenues, although certain expense items also affected the comparison. Revenue decreases reflect reductions in fuel surcharge revenue in each of NS' three commodity groups, continued reductions in coal volumes, and a lower average revenue per unit related to the mix of business. Lower overall expenses were aided by declining fuel expense but hurt by weather and service recovery costs. First quarter 2015 revenues are expected to be about $2.6 billion, a 5% decrease compared with the same period last year. Coal shipments continue to experience downward pressure, weighted by a significant decline in export coal volume. Merchandise saw growth in volumes, though revenues declined due to unfavorable revenue per unit brought on by reduced fuel revenues and changes in the mix of traffic. Within the intermodal category, increased volumes and core pricing gains roughly offset the impact of lower average revenue per unit due to fuel revenue reductions. Following the weather related challenges of the first quarter, volumes are expected to rebound in the second quarter, with the exception of coal, which will continue to be pressured given current market dynamics. In the current energy environment, revenues for the year are expected to be less than revenues for 2014, and the Company continues to focus on improving core pricing as service levels improve.
