OAK BROOK, Ill., Feb. 02, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hub Group, Inc. (NASDAQ:HUBG) announced fourth quarter 2016 net income of $18.2 million, or diluted earnings per share of $0.55 vs. fourth quarter 2015 net income of $22.4 million, or $0.63 per diluted share.

Revenue for the current quarter was $978.6 million, compared with $890.3 million for the fourth quarter 2015. The Hub segment revenue increased 13% and the Mode segment revenue increased 6%. 
Operating income for the current quarter decreased to $30.8 million vs. $35.3 million for the fourth quarter 2015. The Hub segment operating income declined 14% and the Mode segment operating income decreased 6%.  “The above market revenue increase is the result of our on-going focus on excellent customer service.  The operating income decline was driven by our strategic investments in our people and technology.  We believe these investments provide a solid foundation for the future,” said Dave Yeager, Hub’s Chairman and CEO. 

Segment Information:

Hub

  • Fourth quarter 2016 Segment Revenue:       $754.1 million, up 13%
  • Fourth quarter 2016 Operating Income:       $24.3 million, down 14%

The fourth quarter started out slowly but gained momentum as the quarter progressed.  We were successful executing our strategy of targeting specific verticals and customers and providing our customers with multimodal solutions.  This resulted in growth in all of our service lines.  The Hub segment’s revenue increased 13% to $754.1 million as a result of our diversified services and our customer-centric approach. 

Fourth quarter intermodal revenue increased 5% to $468 million reflecting volume growth of 5%.  Intermodal gross margin decreased from the prior year because of lower prices than last year and rail cost increases.  Volume growth, lower dray costs and improved mix and lane balance partially offset the decline. 

Truck brokerage revenue increased 46% to $130 million this quarter compared to last year.  Truck brokerage handled 33% more loads while fuel, price and mix combined were up 13%.  During the quarter, we saw surges in demand from retail and e-commerce customers.  We are well positioned to handle surge freight.  Truck brokerage gross margin increased because of an increase in new business and seasonal business. 

Fourth quarter Unyson Logistics revenue increased 17% to $156 million due primarily to growth with new customers on-boarded this year.  This year we had a record number of new customer on-boardings.  Logistics gross margin was up due to growth with both new and existing customers. 

Costs and expenses increased $8.6 million to $64.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2016 compared to $55.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2015.  Salaries and benefits increased $6.4 million due to higher headcount, annual employee raises and an increase in bonus expense.  General and administrative costs are $1.9 million higher because of an increase in IT costs including costs for our new transportation management system and our new human resource system and an increase in professional fees. 

Operating income was $24.3 million compared to $ 28.4 million last year. 

Mode

  • Fourth quarter 2016 Segment Revenue:       $256.4 million, up 6%
  • Fourth quarter 2016 Operating Income:       $6.5 million, down 6%

Mode managed through a competitive environment and saw revenue increase 6% to $256 million compared to fourth quarter 2015.   Revenue consisted of $131 million in intermodal which was flat, $80 million in truck brokerage which was up 4% and $45 million in logistics which was up 33%.  Mode has made great strides in cross selling our services. 

Gross margin decreased $0.8 million year over year due primarily to a decrease in intermodal gross margin.

Mode’s costs and expenses decreased $0.4 million compared to last year primarily because of a decline in agent commissions.   

Mode added 3 new IBO’s to the network during the quarter along with 23 salespeople.  Mode’s pipeline remains strong for new recruits in 2017.

Operating income was $6.5 million compared to $6.9 million last year.

2017 Outlook
“We are pleased with the results for 2016 and the progress we have made on our goals and objectives.  Looking to 2017, we remain committed to our strategy to increase market share by providing multimodal solutions for our customers,” said Dave Yeager.  “We are optimistic about growing all our service lines as we focus on targeted growth initiatives.  To support this growth, we will be increasing our fleet 10% and investing in technology to help us exceed customer expectations and improve operating efficiencies.”

Cash Flow and Capitalization:

At December 31, 2016, we had total debt outstanding of $174 million on various debt instruments compared to $149 million at December 31, 2015.

Our capital expenditures for 2016 approximated $107 million vs. $83 million in 2015. At December 31, 2016, we had cash and cash equivalents of $127 million.
