SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--CAI International, Inc. (CAI) (NYSE: CAP), one of the world’s leading lessors of intermodal freight containers, today reported results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2011.

Highlights for the Third Quarter of 2011

  • CAI reported net income attributable to CAI common stockholders for the third quarter of 2011 of $0.70 per fully diluted share, a 40% increase compared to $0.50 per fully diluted share for the third quarter of 2010.
  • Container rental revenue for the third quarter of 2011 increased 61% compared to the third quarter of 2010 and 12% compared to the second quarter of 2011.
  • During the third quarter of 2011 the company leased out 34,000 TEUs of newly purchased containers.
  • Average fleet utilization for the third quarter of 2011 was 98%, the same as the second quarter of 2011.
  • During the third quarter, CAI entered into a $100 million asset-backed warehouse notes credit facility which will be used for financing container purchases.
  • During the third quarter, the Board of Directors of CAI authorized the repurchase of up to one million shares of the company’s issued and outstanding stock.

Net income attributable to CAI common stockholders was $13.6 million for the third quarter of 2011, compared to $9.2 million for the third quarter of 2010, an increase of 49%. Net income attributable to CAI common stockholders was $37.3 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2011, compared to $17.9 million for the comparable period in 2010, an increase of 109%.

Total revenue for the third quarter of 2011 was $33.0 million, compared to $20.1 million for the third quarter of 2010, an increase of 64%. Container rental revenue for the third quarter of 2011 was $27.6 million, compared to $17.2 million for the third quarter of 2010. The increase in container rental revenue was primarily due to a 33% increase in the average number of TEUs of owned containers on lease and to a 19% increase in the average owned fleet per diem rates compared to the third quarter last year. Management fee revenue for the third quarter of 2011 was $3.1 million, compared to $2.2 million for the third quarter of 2010. Gain on sale of container portfolios was $0.7 million for the third quarter of 2011. There were no container portfolio sales in the third quarter of 2010. Finance lease income for the third quarter of 2011 increased to $1.6 million, from $0.7 million in the third quarter of 2010.

Total revenue for the nine months ended September 30, 2011 was $89.5 million, compared to $52.7 million for the comparable period in 2010, an increase of 70%. Container rental revenue for the nine months ended September 30, 2011 was $74.7 million, compared to $43.5 million for the comparable prior year period. The increase in container rental revenue was primarily due to a 42% increase in the average number of TEUs of owned containers on lease and to a 22% increase in the average owned fleet per diem rates compared to the nine months ended September 30, 2010. Management fee revenue for the nine months ended September 30, 2011 was $9.9 million, compared to $7.0 million for the comparable prior year period. Gain on sale of container portfolios for the nine months ended September 30, 2011 was $2.3 million, compared to $0.6 million for the comparable prior year period. Finance lease income for the nine months ended September 30, 2011 increased to $2.6 million, from $1.6 million for the comparable period in 2010.

Victor Garcia, Chief Executive Officer of CAI, commented, “We are very pleased with our strong revenue and earnings growth this quarter resulting from continued growth in global containerized trade. During the third quarter we leased out approximately 34,000 TEUs of new containers, including 7,400 TEUs of refrigerated units. We are pleased with our investment in equipment of approximately $386 million through the first nine months of this year, a record level of investment for CAI. Most of this investment in new equipment has already been placed on long term leases at per diem rates that are significantly higher than the same period in 2010.”

Mr. Garcia continued, “The latest 2011 IMF forecast for overall world trade growth is 7.5%, driven by intra-Asia trade and trade in other less developed economies. Similarly, Clarkson Research estimated in October that overall world container trade, the key factor in demand for marine containers, would grow at 8.3% in 2011. This level of containerized trade growth has supported both the level of our 2011 new investment and the 98% utilization rate of our existing fleet. In spite of the slowness in the U.S. and Eurozone economies, we do not expect anything other than the normal, moderate seasonal decrease in our utilization rates in the fourth quarter.”

Mr. Garcia added, “We are optimistic about the outlook for container demand in 2012. Clarkson Research’s latest estimate for 2012 world container trade growth is 8.4%. With this expected level of trade growth and the fact that recent economic uncertainty has resulted in both lessors and shipping companies reducing their level of investment in new containers during the past several months, we expect to see not only continued historically strong utilization rates but also strong demand for new containers in 2012.”
