Kansas City Southern Reports Third Quarter Results

Kansas City, Mo., October 16, 2020.
Kansas City Southern (KCS) (NYSE:KSU) reported revenues of $659.6 million, a decrease of 12% from third quarter 2019. Overall, carload volumes were down 4% compared to prior year.

Third Quarter 2020

Third quarter revenues were $659.6 million, a decrease of 12% primarily resulting from lower volumes driven by a decline in demand due to COVID-19 and lower commodity prices, lower fuel surcharge, and unfavorable foreign currency impacts.

Third quarter operating expenses were $388.1 million. Operating income was $271.5 million and the reported operating ratio was 58.8%. Third quarter net income was $190.2 million, or $2.01 per diluted share. Adjusted third quarter operating income, net income and diluted earnings per share were as follows:

As KCS' outlook improves, the Company has updated and improved elements of its 2020 guidance. The Company now expects adjusted diluted earnings per share to be slightly higher on a year over year basis, and full-year 2020 adjusted operating ratio to be on the low end of the 60% to 61% range. Additionally, previously provided 2020 capital expenditure guidance remains $425.0 million or below. Guidance for 2021 and 2022 capital expenditures remains at ~17% of revenue. Finally, the Company expects free cash flow to be approximately $550 million in 2020. See the following pages for a reconciliation of historical free cash flow.

The Company intends to enter into accelerated share repurchase agreements on or around October 16, 2020 for the repurchase of approximately $500 million of its outstanding shares of common stock. This will be executed under the Company’s $2 billion share repurchase program announced on November 12, 2019.
