FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
GATX CORPORATION REPORTS 2019 FOURTH-QUARTER AND FULL-YEAR RESULTS

CHICAGO, Jan. 23, 2020 - GATX Corporation (NYSE: GATX) today reported 2019 fourth-quarter net income of $56.6 million or $1.59 per diluted share, compared to net income of $49.2 million or $1.30 per diluted share in the fourth quarter of 2018. The 2019 fourth-quarter results include a net casualty gain of approximately $8.1 million or $0.23 per diluted share, attributed to an insurance recovery for a damaged vessel at American Steamship Company (ASC). 2018 fourth quarter results include a net benefit from Tax Adjustments and Other Items of $17.3 million or $0.46 per diluted share.
Net income for the full-year 2019 was $211.2 million or $5.81 per diluted share, compared to $211.3 million or $5.52 per diluted share in the prior year. The 2019 and 2018 full-year results include net benefits from Tax Adjustments and Other Items of $0.30 per diluted share in each year. Details related to Tax Adjustments and Other Items are provided in the attached Supplemental Information.
“Despite the uncertain global economy, we exceeded our original expectations and produced excellent financial results in 2019,” said Brian A. Kenney, president and chief executive officer of GATX. “In Rail North America, a continuing market oversupply of railcars, coupled with reduced carload volume and increased railroad velocity, put pressure on lease rates throughout the year. However, our commercial team’s outstanding performance in maintaining 99% fleet utilization combined with further efficiency improvements in our maintenance network resulted in Rail North America exceeding its segment profit expectations.
“Rail International performed near expectations in local currency, as demand for our railcars remained strong in Europe and India. Fleet utilization at GATX Rail Europe ended the year above 99%, and our fleet at Rail India grew to almost 3,700 railcars. The pace of investment at both entities was constrained by increasing new car production backlogs. Within Portfolio Management, our Rolls-Royce and Partners Finance affiliates significantly exceeded our expectations due to continued high demand for aircraft spare engines and strong residual realization.
