Eric Fuller, President and CEO, commented, “We were pleased to deliver our seventh consecutive quarter of year-over-year adjusted operating income improvement and the highest earnings of any first quarter in our company’s history. Overall, our team performed well despite a softer freight environment and more severe winter weather than last year. Looking to the balance of 2019, we remain positive as we expect the freight environment to improve seasonally, our network efficiency to rise as we complete the repositioning of equipment from cross-border lanes and the productivity of our operations to benefit from our many internal initiatives including our goal of achieving a frictionless order.”

Enterprise Update

Operating revenue was $415.4 million, a decrease of $10.3 million compared to the first quarter of 2018. Excluding revenue from the Company’s Mexico operations which were discontinued in January 2019, operating revenue increased $2.9 million excluding fuel surcharge. The increase was attributable to a 3.8% increase in revenue per mile, mostly offset by a decrease of $8.3 million in brokerage revenue.

Operating income for the first quarter of 2019 was $12.6 million, which compares to $14.9 million achieved in the first quarter of 2018. Excluding $3.4 million of cost  to exit the Company’s Mexico operations, adjusted operating income for the first quarter of 2019 was $16.0 million, compared to $14.9 million for the 2018 quarter.  Adjusted operating ratio for the first quarter of 2019 was 95.7%, a 40 basis point improvement compared to the first quarter of 2018.

Net income attributable to controlling interest for the first quarter of 2019 was $4.7 million compared to $1.2 million in the prior year quarter.  Adjusted net income attributable to controlling interest for the first quarter of 2019 was $7.3 million, compared to $1.2 million in the 2018 quarter. Adjusted earnings per diluted share were $0.15 for the first quarter of 2019.

Mr. Fuller said, “The freight environment was more difficult this year than in the 2018 quarter due to various factors, including inventory levels, weather, and moderately increased truckload supply. Despite the more challenging market, contract rates remained strong, up 8.0% over the 2018 quarter, based on long-term relationships with customers that value our service, technology, and committed baseline capacity. Typically, about 80% of the volume in our Over-the-Road division is contracted while approximately 20% is non-contracted.  In the first quarter, the less favorable environment pressured our rates and miles in the non-contract portion of our Over-the-Road Truckload division as spot rates declined more than 20%.” 

Mr. Fuller continued, “Despite the more challenging conditions in the spot market which is more aligned with seasonal, project, and cyclical fluctuations, our Truckload segment produced solid revenue performance driven by our Dedicated division which continued to deliver strong performance and helped to lead a 1.1% increase in average revenue per tractor per week across our Truckload segment.  Overall, the Truckload segment achieved an adjusted operating ratio of 96.0% for the first quarter of 2019, a 20 basis point improvement compared to the adjusted operating ratio of 96.2% achieved in the first quarter of 2018.”

In the Over-the-Road division, average revenue per tractor per week declined 6.1% compared with the first quarter of 2018. Average revenue per mile increased 0.7% compared with the 2018 quarter, while average revenue miles per tractor per week decreased 6.7%.  The impact on average revenue per tractor per week resulted from unfavorable weather conditions, the transition out of the Company’s Mexico operations, and the less favorable freight environment.

The Dedicated division’s average revenue per tractor per week increased 11.8% compared to the first quarter of 2018. The increase was primarily the result of a 7.1% increase in average revenue per mile and a 4.4% increase in average revenue miles per tractor per week. The increase in utilization and revenue per mile was the result of successful efforts made in 2018 designed to improve the business mix by allocating capital to new and existing accounts with a better combination of rate and utilization.

The brokerage segment continues to provide additional selectivity for the Company’s assets to optimize yield while at the same time offering more capacity solutions to customers. Brokerage segment revenue decreased to $46.2 million in the first quarter of 2019 compared to $54.5 million in the first quarter of 2018, on fewer loads and decreased revenue per load.  The revenue decrease was more than offset by higher gross margin, as transportation cost per load decreased significantly due to sourcing third party capacity more efficiently. As a result, operating income increased 18.9% to $2.8 million in the first quarter of 2019 as compared to the year ago quarter.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

As of March 31, 2019, U.S. Xpress had $120.4 million of liquidity (defined as cash plus availability under the Company’s revolving credit facility), $407.1 million of net debt (defined as long-term debt, including current maturities, less cash balances), and $244.2 million of total stockholders' equity. Capital expenditures, net of proceeds, related primarily to tractors and trailers were $23.5 million in the first quarter of 2019.

Outlook

For the balance of the year we are focused on three main priorities.  The first is optimizing our Truckload network and resulting average revenue per tractor per week through repositioning equipment and allocating capacity between our Dedicated and Over-the-Road segments. The second is improving the experience of our professional truck drivers, including their safety and security. And, the third is advancing our technology initiatives centered on digital load matching, automated load acceptance and prioritization, and our goal of achieving a 100% frictionless order.
 
Capitalizing on digital technologies will continue to afford U.S. Xpress competitive advantages.  Over time, we expect to achieve driver, cost, and load planning efficiencies as a result of our frictionless order initiatives. In addition, selecting and implementing the right equipment, logistics planning, and automated decision making technologies will further position U.S Xpress as one of the leaders in our industry. Driving technology development, training, and implementation without losing ground on core operations will be critical to both our success and our goal of delivering enhanced profitability.

Turning to the market backdrop, the second quarter freight environment remains subdued relative to normal seasonality, and in comparison to the strongest market in 20 years which we experienced in the second quarter of 2018.  While we expect ongoing improvements in network efficiency from the exit of our Mexico business and in operating efficiency from our strategic initiatives, the change in market conditions since our fourth quarter call has changed our expectations on second quarter earnings. While we continue to expect our initiatives and an improving market backdrop to allow us to improve our adjusted operating ratio on a sequential basis we now expect our second quarter adjusted operating ratio to deteriorate as compared to the year ago comparable quarter.

We believe the operating improvements implemented over the past several years have positioned the Company to better manage market fluctuations such as those that we are now experiencing.  Our current guidance of delivering a 93.0% adjusted operating ratio for the full year 2019 remains achievable, though it is dependent on market conditions strengthening through the balance of the second quarter. As a result, we plan to update our full year adjusted operating ratio guidance when we will have better visibility on the freight market and our full year results.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to our net income determined in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (‘‘GAAP’’), we evaluate operating performance using certain non-GAAP measures, including Adjusted Operating Ratio, Adjusted Operating Expenses, Adjusted Operating Income, Adjusted Net Income Attributable to Controlling Interest, and Adjusted EPS (on a consolidated and, as applicable, segment basis). Management believes the use of non-GAAP measures assists investors and securities analysts in understanding the ongoing operating performance of our business by allowing more effective comparison between periods. The non-GAAP information provided is used by our management and may not be comparable to similar measures disclosed by other companies. The non-GAAP measures used herein have limitations as analytical tools, and you should not consider them in isolation or as substitutes for analysis of our results as reported under GAAP. Management compensates for these limitations by relying primarily on GAAP results and using non-GAAP financial measures on a supplemental basis.
