Norfolk Southern Corporation Reports Earnings Results for the Second Quarter and First Six Months of 2015; Provides Financial Guidance for 2015

Norfolk Southern Corporation reported earnings results for the second quarter and first six months of 2015. For the quarter, the company reported 23% drop in profit follows the same story line as other railroads seeing a sharp decline in coal shipments. The company posted $433 million net income, or $1.41 per share. That's down from $562 million, or $1.79 per share, a year ago. Revenue decreased 11% to $2.71 billion compared to $3.04 billion for the same quarter ended March 31, 2014 because coal volume fell 21% and total volume declined 2%. Cash from operations for the first six months was $1.5 billion, covering capital spending and producing $587 million in free cash flow. Net income for the six months ended June 30, 2015 was $743 million, or $2.41 per diluted share, compared to $930 million, or $2.97 per diluted share, for the same period ended June 30, 2014. Railway operating revenues for the six months ended June 30, 2015 were $5.28 billion, compared to $5.73 billion for the same period ended June 30, 2014. With regard to capital spending for the remainder of the year and given the lower-than-expected volumes, the company has trimmed back its 2015 capital budget by $130 million or about 5%. 2/3 of the reductions are related to work on the line of road and 1/3 is related to equipment. Assuming normalized returns on these assets in the second half of the year, the company expects the full year income tax rate to be about 37.5%.
