Raises Full Year 2017 Outlook

 

HONOLULU, Hawaii (November 2, 2017) – Matson, Inc. (“Matson” or the “Company”) (NYSE: MATX), a leading U.S. carrier in the Pacific, today reported net income of $34.1 million, or $0.79 per diluted share for the quarter ended September 30, 2017.  Net income for the quarter ended September 30, 2016 was $25.3 million, or $0.59 per diluted share.  Consolidated revenue for the third quarter 2017 was $543.9 million compared with $500.4 million reported for the third quarter 2016.

 

For the nine months ended September 30, 2017, Matson reported net income of $65.1 million, or $1.50 per diluted share compared with $61.4 million, or $1.41 per diluted share in 2016.  Consolidated revenue for the nine month period ended September 30, 2017 was $1,530.8 million, compared with $1,422.3 million in 2016.

 

Matt Cox, Matson’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “Matson achieved better-than-expected third quarter results due to stronger demand for our expedited China service, stronger southbound volume in Alaska, the timing of fuel surcharge collections, and higher lift volumes at SSAT.  These positive contributors were somewhat moderated by lower volume in Hawaii and continued competitive pressure in Guam.”

 

Mr. Cox added, “Stronger performance year-to-date in China, Alaska, and SSAT have more than offset the negative trends this year in Guam and more recently with lower construction-related cargo in Hawaii.  Overall, we expect our businesses to continue to perform well during the fourth quarter, and due to our stronger-than-expected third quarter results we are raising our outlook for full year EBITDA to modestly exceed last year’s EBITDA.”

 

Third Quarter 2017 Discussion and Outlook for 2017

 

Ocean Transportation: The Hawaii economy experienced modest growth in the third quarter 2017; however, the Company’s container volume was 6.4 percent lower year-over-year due primarily to lower construction-related volumes as the construction cycle in Oahu transitions from high-rise projects to the master planned community projects in West Oahu.  The Company expects its full year 2017 Hawaii container volume to be lower than the level achieved in 2016, which benefitted from a 53rd week.

 

In China, the Company’s container volume in the third quarter 2017 was 11.7 percent higher year-over-year due to stronger demand for Matson’s expedited service and an additional sailing.  The Company continued to realize a sizeable rate premium in the third quarter 2017 and achieved average freight rates moderately higher than the third quarter 2016.    For the remainder of 2017, the Company expects continued strong demand for our highly differentiated expedited service amid a chronically over-supplied international container shipping market.

In Guam, as expected, the Company’s container volume in the third quarter 2017 was lower on a year-over-year basis, the result of competitive losses to a U.S. flagged containership service that increased its service frequency to weekly in December 2016.  For the balance of 2017, the Company expects a continued heightened competitive environment and lower volume.

 

In Alaska, the Company’s container volume for the third quarter 2017 was 8.2 percent higher year-over-year, primarily the result of a better-than-expected seafood harvest that positively impacted southbound volumes and an additional northbound sailing.  For the full year, the Company expects volume to approximate the level last year (versus the prior view of modestly lower) as a result of stronger southbound volume from a better-than-expected seafood harvest, offset by weaker northbound volume attributable to the ongoing contraction of Alaska’s energy-based economy.

 

As a result, the Company expects full year 2017 Ocean Transportation operating income to be lower than the $142.7 million achieved in 2016. 

 

Logistics: In the third quarter 2017, operating income for the Company’s Logistics segment included a full quarter of freight forwarding operating results from its acquired Span Alaska business versus approximately two months in the year ago period.  For the full year 2017, the Company continues to expect Logistics operating income to be approximately $20 million, up significantly from the 2016 level of $11.9 million, primarily due to the inclusion of Span Alaska’s freight forwarding business for a full year.

 

Depreciation and Amortization: For the full year 2017, the Company expects depreciation and amortization expense to be approximately $145 million, inclusive of dry-docking amortization of approximately $46 million, primarily due to the higher levels of maintenance capital and vessel dry-docking expenditures in 2017.

 

EBITDA: The Company expects full year 2017 EBITDA to be modestly higher than the $290.0 million achieved in 2016.

 

Interest Expense: The Company expects interest expense for the full year 2017 to be approximately $24 million.

 

Income Tax Expense: In the third quarter 2017, the Company’s effective tax rate was 38.7 percent.  For the full year 2017, the Company expects its effective tax rate to be approximately 39 percent.

 

Capital and Vessel Dry-docking Expenditures: In the third quarter 2017, the Company made maintenance capital expenditure payments of $6.2 million, vessel construction expenditures of $126.0 million, and dry-docking payments of $12.1 million.  For the full year 2017, the Company expects to make maintenance capital expenditure payments of approximately $50 million, vessel construction expenditures of approximately $250 million, and dry-docking payments of approximately $50 million.

Ocean Transportation revenue increased $21.2 million, or 5.3 percent, during the three months ended September 30, 2017, compared with the three months ended September 30, 2016.  This increase was primarily due to higher fuel surcharge revenue, higher average freight rates in China, Hawaii, and Alaska, and higher container volume in Alaska and China, partially offset by lower container volume in Hawaii and Guam.

 

On a year-over-year FEU basis, Hawaii container volume decreased by 6.4 percent primarily due to lower construction-related volume; Alaska volume increased by 8.2 percent primarily attributable to a stronger seafood season and an additional northbound sailing during the third quarter; China volume was 11.7 percent higher due to stronger demand for the Company’s expedited service and an additional sailing during the third quarter; and Guam volume was 22.6 percent lower due to competitive losses.

 

Ocean Transportation operating income increased $11.4 million, or 26.4 percent, during the three months ended September 30, 2017, compared with the three months ended September 30, 2016.  The increase was primarily due to higher average freight rates and container volume in China, favorable timing of fuel surcharge collections, higher Alaska container volumes, higher freight rates in Hawaii, and a higher contribution from SSAT.  Partially offsetting these favorable year-over-year comparisons were higher terminal handling expenses and lower container volume in Hawaii and Guam.

 

The Company’s SSAT terminal joint venture investment contributed $7.5 million during the three months ended September 30, 2017, compared to a $3.6 million contribution during the three months ended September 30, 2016.  The increase was primarily attributable to improved lift volume.

Ocean Transportation revenue increased $46.9 million, or 4.1 percent, during the nine months ended September 30, 2017, compared with the nine months ended September 30, 2016.  This increase was primarily due to higher fuel surcharge revenue, and higher average freight rates and container volumes in China, partially offset by lower volume in Hawaii and Guam.

 

On a year-over-year FEU basis, Hawaii container volume decreased by 4.9 percent primarily due to the absence of competitive volume gains in the prior year and lower construction-related volumes; Alaska volume increased by 1.1 percent primarily due to higher southbound volume attributable to the stronger seafood season; China volume was 16.1 percent higher due to stronger demand for the Company’s expedited service and additional sailings during the nine-month period; and Guam volume was 14.8 percent lower due to competitive losses.

 

Ocean Transportation operating income decreased $2.0 million, or 1.8 percent, during the nine months ended September 30, 2017, compared with the nine months ended September 30, 2016.  The decrease was primarily due to lower container volume in Hawaii and Guam and higher terminal handling expenses, partially offset by higher average freight rates and volume in China, favorable timing of fuel surcharge collections, and higher contributions from SSAT.

 

The Company’s SSAT terminal joint venture investment contributed $19.3 million during the nine months ended September 30, 2017, compared to a $9.2 million contribution in the nine months ended September 30, 2016.  The increase was primarily attributable to improved lift volume.

EBITDA is defined as the sum of net income, less income or loss from discontinued operations, plus income tax expense, interest expense and depreciation and amortization (including deferred dry-docking amortization).  EBITDA should not be considered as an alternative to net income (as determined in accordance with GAAP), as an indicator of our operating performance, or to cash flows from operating activities (as determined in accordance with GAAP) as a measure of liquidity.  Our calculation of EBITDA may not be comparable to EBITDA as calculated by other companies, nor is this calculation identical to the EBITDA used by our lenders to determine financial covenant compliance.

Hawaii Economic Indicators Source: UHERO: University of Hawaii Economic Research Organization; STATE FORECAST UPDATE, September 29, 2017, http://www.uhero.hawaii.edu GDP Growth Construction Jobs Growth Real Building Permits Growth “[T]his is shaping up to be a restrained residential building cycle compared with the late-1980s and mid-2000s bubbles, but one that is proving to be relatively long-lived: the peak level of activity will be lower, but the falloff on the other side will be less pronounced.” Meaningful changes in construction-related indicators from UHERO suggest continued softening of construction activity headed into 2018 despite growth in tourism, low unemployment and continued GDP growth.

Addendum – Non-GAAP Measures Matson reports financial results in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”). The Company also considers other non-GAAP measures to evaluate performance, make day-to-day operating decisions, help investors understand our ability to incur and service debt and to make capital expenditures, and to understand period-over-period operating results separate and apart from items that may, or could, have a disproportional positive or negative impact on results in any particular period. These non-GAAP measures include, but are not limited to, Earnings Before Interest, Depreciation and Amortization (“EBITDA”), and Net Debt/EBITDA.
