Universal Truckload Services Provides Earnings Guidance for the Second Quarter Ended June 29, 2015

Universal Truckload Services provided earnings guidance for the second quarter ended June 29, 2015. For the year, the company expects to report earnings per diluted share in the range of $0.42 to $0.45. Total operating revenues anticipated to range from $293 million to $300 million. Earnings before interest, taxes and depreciation, or EBITDA, should exceed $30.7 million compared to $32.4 million in second quarter of 2014. Universal Truckload Services said its estimated second quarter financial performance reflects a more stable demand and pricing environment for its truckload transportation services compared to reported first 2015 results, with nascent increases in its wind energy business emerging in June. The company also noted that its revenues from logistics operations are meeting expectations, based on those operations that continue from one year earlier.

Universal Truckload Services, Inc. Enters into a Third Amendment to its Revolving Credit and Term Loan Agreement

On June 9, 2015, Universal Truckload Services Inc. entered into a Third Amendment to its Revolving Credit and Term Loan Agreement dated August 28, 2012 with the lenders who are parties to its Credit Agreement and Comerica Bank, as administrative agent, arranger and documentation agent. The Amendment to Credit Agreement modifies the Credit Agreement to exclude purchases of up to $35 million of the company's common stock in a modified Dutch auction tender offer from the calculation of the company's fixed charge coverage ratio, as defined in the Credit Agreement.

Universal Truckload Services Inc. Reports Unaudited Consolidated Earnings Results for the First Quarter Ended March 28, 2015; Declares Cash Dividend for the First Quarter Ended March 28, 2015, Payable on May 21, 2015; Provides Earnings Guidance for the Year 2015

Universal Truckload Services Inc. reported unaudited consolidated earnings results for the first quarter ended March 28, 2015. For the quarter, the company reported net income of $8.2 million, or $0.27 per basic and diluted share, on total operating revenues of $263.6 million.  This compares to $8.1 million, or $0.27 per basic and diluted share, during the first quarter of 2014 on total operating revenues of $279.4 million. Income from operations increased 3.4% to $15.1 million, compared to $14.6 million in the first quarter of 2014.  EBITDA increased 8.1% to $24.1 million compared to $22.3 million one year earlier.  Income before provision for income taxes was $13,332,000 compared to $13,143,000 a year ago. The company's free cash flow increased to $21.9 million compared to $11.5 million in the first quarter of 2014 due to modestly higher EBITDA and restrained capital spending. The company announced that the board of directors has declared a quarterly cash dividend for the first quarter ended March 28, 2015 of $0.07 per share of common stock.  The dividend is payable to shareholders of record at the close of business on May 11, 2015 and is expected to be paid on May 21, 2015. While the company expects investments in tractors, trailers and other capital equipment to rebound somewhat in the next few quarters, the company currently working with an approximate $40 million capital budget in 2015, which is 1/3 lower than last year's purchases. The company expects overall revenue will be up slightly from last year with intermodal and value-add growth offsetting much of the transportation decline. Extending the profitability metrics, the company expects continued improvement in operating and EBITDA margins through the next several quarters. Given these revised assumptions, The company anticipates 2015 EPS to exceed last year's $1.51 per share, anywhere from a $0.05 to $0.10.
