Old Dominion Freight Line Reports Strong, Profitable Growth with Second-Quarter Earnings Per Diluted Share of $0.69

THOMASVILLE, N.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Old Dominion Freight Line, Inc. (NASDAQ: ODFL) today announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2011. Revenue increased 30.4% for the quarter to $480.3 million from $368.3 million for the second quarter of 2010. Net income rose 83.1% to $39.4 million from $21.5 million, while earnings per diluted share increased 81.6% to $0.69 from $0.38 in the prior-year comparable quarter. Old Dominion’s operating ratio improved to 86.5% for the second quarter of 2011 from 89.1% for the second quarter of 2010. The Company’s per-share results reflect a 2.7% increase in weighted average shares outstanding that resulted from the issuance of 1,516,379 shares in March 2011 under a previously announced “at the market” stock offering program. All prior-period share and per share data in this release have been adjusted to reflect the Company’s August 2010 three-for-two stock split.

“The strong growth we experienced for the second quarter and expect for 2011 enhances our ability to develop these growth opportunities. We are confident that we have the human capital, the systems and infrastructure and the financial strength to produce significant long-term growth and increased shareholder value.”

For the first six months of 2011, revenue was $902.9 million, a 31.6% increase from $686.0 million for the first half of 2010. Net income rose 108.7% to $61.0 million for the first six months of 2011 from $29.2 million for the same prior-year period, and earnings per diluted share increased 105.8% to $1.07 from $0.52. Old Dominion’s operating ratio improved to 88.6% for the first half of 2011 from 91.8% for the comparable period in 2010.

David S. Congdon, President and Chief Executive Officer of Old Dominion, commented, “Old Dominion’s second-quarter performance shattered our prior records for quarterly performance. Quarterly revenue increased 15% over our previous high of $417.8 million in the second quarter of 2008; earnings per diluted share increased 57% over our previous high of $0.44 in the third quarter of 2010; and our operating ratio of 86.5% was lower than the 88.3% that we produced in the second quarter of 2006. We believe our operating and financial results further validate the effectiveness of our operating and growth strategies, and we congratulate all the members of the OD Family for this performance.

“Our revenue for the second quarter was driven by a 14.0% increase in tonnage and a 14.2% increase in revenue per hundredweight over the second quarter of 2010. Excluding fuel surcharges, revenue per hundredweight increased 8.1%. Improvements in our revenue yield in the second quarter were aided by both a 2.3% decline in weight per shipment and a 1.5% increase in our average length of haul from the prior-year comparable quarter. Shipments increased 16.8%, outpacing our tonnage growth, and revenue per shipment increased 11.5% from the second quarter of 2010.

“Strong tonnage growth, combined with the increase in revenue per hundredweight, contributed to a 260 basis-point improvement in our operating ratio for the second quarter. The impact of this operating leverage was modestly offset by the decline in some measures of productivity related to expanding and training our workforce, as well as to changes in the mix of freight. However, we continued our strong performance as the industry-leading provider of on-time, claims free service, with on-time deliveries of 99% and a cargo-claims ratio of 0.47%.”

Old Dominion’s capital expenditures for the second quarter of 2011 were approximately $84 million and $142 million for the first half of the year. For the full year of 2011, the Company expects to incur capital expenditures of $260 million to $295 million, including $100 million to $120 million for real estate purchases and expansion projects at our existing facilities, subject to the availability of suitable real estate and the timing of construction projects. In addition, $145 million to $155 million of capital expenditures are planned for the purchase of tractors, trailers and other equipment, and $15 million to $20 million are planned for investments in technology.

Old Dominion remains well-positioned to fund its planned capital expenditures. In addition to continuing strong cash flow from operations, the Company’s total debt to capitalization improved to 25.4% at June 30, 2011 from 28.1% at March 31, 2011 and 31.7% at June 30, 2010. At the end of the second quarter of 2011, the Company had $28.7 million in cash and cash equivalents and $174.2 million of availability on its revolving credit facility, which expires in August 2011. The Company expects to finalize and enter into a new credit facility prior to the expiration of its current facility.

Mr. Congdon concluded, “While we are proud of the milestones achieved in the second quarter, we are focused on compelling opportunities to improve and expand our organization further in pursuit of our long-term growth objectives. Due to our historical and substantial growth, our market share has reached the mid-single digits. As a result, we have an excellent opportunity to further increase our market share by expanding our business organically through increased density within our existing service center network, as well as through additional geographic expansion. In addition, continued investments in technology represent an ongoing opportunity to enhance productivity and provide better, more transparent services to our customers. We are also continuing to invest in value-added logistics services that include warehousing, truckload brokerage, dedicated fleet and transportation management. Although currently a small, yet rapidly growing, portion of our business, these value-added services are building new revenue streams for Old Dominion that we believe will allow us to better leverage our service center network and our thousands of customer relationships in the U.S. and abroad.

“The strong growth we experienced for the second quarter and expect for 2011 enhances our ability to develop these growth opportunities. We are confident that we have the human capital, the systems and infrastructure and the financial strength to produce significant long-term growth and increased shareholder value.”
