HONOLULU, Hawaii (February 20, 2018) – Matson, Inc. (“Matson” or the “Company”) (NYSE: MATX), a leading U.S. carrier in the Pacific, today reported net income of $166.9 million, or $3.90 per diluted share, for the quarter ended December  31, 2017.  Net income and earnings per share in the quarter benefitted by $155.0 million and $3.62 per diluted share, respectively, from a one-time, non-cash adjustment arising from the enactment of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (the “Tax Act”).  Net income for the quarter ended December  31, 2016 was $20.0 million, or $0.46 per diluted share.  Consolidated revenue for the fourth quarter 2017 was $516.1 million compared with $519.3 million reported for the fourth quarter 2016.

 

For the full year 2017, Matson reported net income of $232.0 million, or $5.37 per diluted share, compared with $81.4 million, or $1.87 per diluted share, in 2016.  The net income and earnings per share benefit in the full year 2017 from the one-time, non-cash adjustment as a result of the Tax Act was $155.0 million and $3.59 per diluted share, respectively.  Consolidated revenue for the full year 2017 was $2,046.9 million, compared with $1,941.6 million in the prior year. 

 

Matt Cox, Matson’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “Matson’s core businesses performed well during the fourth quarter supported in particular by continued strong demand in our China service and higher lift volumes at SSAT.  Overall, 2017 was a solid year for Matson.  Operationally during the past year, we continued to advance our new Hawaii vessels and Sand Island crane program, which are expected to strengthen our market leading position and drive increased efficiency in the years ahead.  We look forward to the arrival of the first of our four new vessels in the third quarter of this year.”

 

Mr. Cox added, “For 2018, we expect to face continued competitive pressure in Guam and modestly lower volume in China coming off an exceptionally strong year,  offset by modest improvements in our other core businesses.  As a result, we expect Matson’s 2018 operating income to approximate the level achieved in 2017.”

 

Fourth Quarter 2017 Discussion and Outlook for 2018

 

Ocean Transportation: The Hawaii economy experienced modest growth in the fourth quarter 2017; however, the Company’s container volume was 11.1 percent lower year-over-year due primarily to an extra week in 2016 and 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 flat-to-modest volume growth in 2018, reflecting a growing Hawaii economy and stable market share. 

 

In China, the Company’s container volume in the fourth quarter 2017 was 14.3 percent lower year-over-year largely due to an additional week in 2016 as well as volume gains in the prior year period related to the Hanjin bankruptcy.  The Company continued to realize a sizeable rate premium in the fourth quarter 2017 and achieved average freight rates moderately higher than the fourth quarter 2016.  For 2018, the Company expects pricing to remain as favorable as 2017 and volume to be modestly lower compared to the levels achieved in 2017. 

 

In Guam, as expected, the Company’s container volume in the fourth 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 2018, the Company expects a continued heightened competitive environment and lower volume when compared to levels achieved in 2017.

 

In Alaska, the Company’s container volume for the fourth quarter 2017 was 10.1 percent lower year-over-year, primarily due to volume in the additional week in the prior year.  For the full year 2018, we expect volume to approximate the level in 2017 with modest improvement in northbound volumes, offset by lower southbound seafood-related volume due to a moderation from the very strong seafood harvest levels in 2017.

 

As a result of the business outlook noted above, the Company expects full year 2018 Ocean Transportation operating income to approximate the level achieved in 2017.  In the first quarter 2018, the Company expects Ocean Transportation operating income will be moderately higher than the level achieved in the first quarter 2017 primarily due to the timing of fuel surcharge collections.

 

Logistics: In the fourth quarter 2017, operating income for the Company’s Logistics segment was roughly flat compared to the operating income achieved in the prior year period.  For the full year 2018, the Company expects Logistics operating income to increase modestly compared to the level achieved in 2017.  In the first quarter 2018, the Company expects operating income to approximate the level achieved in the first quarter 2017.

 

Depreciation and Amortization: For the full year 2018, the Company expects depreciation and amortization expense to be approximately $135 million, inclusive of dry-docking amortization of approximately $36 million.

 

EBITDA: The Company expects full year 2018 EBITDA to be lower than the $296.0 million achieved in 2017. 

 

Interest Expense: The Company expects interest expense for the full year 2018 to be approximately $22 million.

 

Income Tax Expense:   The Company’s effective tax rate for the fourth quarter and full year 2017 was -738.7 percent and -85.3 percent, respectively.  The fourth quarter and full year 2017 effective tax rates include the one-time, non-cash adjustment of $155.0 million as a result of the Tax Act.  Excluding this tax adjustment, the effective tax rates for the fourth quarter and full year 2017 would have been 40.2 percent and 38.5 percent, respectively.  For the full year 2018, the Company expects its effective tax rate to be approximately 28 percent, which is based on the Company’s initial analysis of the Tax Act and is subject to change based on guidance issued by the Internal Revenue Service and the U.S. Department of the Treasury as well as clarifications of state tax law.

 

Capital and Vessel Dry-docking Expenditures: For the full year 2017, the Company made maintenance capital expenditure payments of $55.0 million, capitalized vessel construction expenditures of $252.0 million, and dry-docking payments of $54.6 million.  For the full year 2018, the Company expects to make maintenance capital expenditure payments of approximately $68 million, vessel construction expenditures  (inclusive of capitalized interest and owner’s items) of approximately $436 million, and dry-docking payments of approximately $18 million.

Ocean Transportation revenue declined $16.2 million, or 4.0 percent, during the three months ended December 31, 2017, compared with the three months ended December 31, 2016.  This decrease was primarily due to lower volumes across the tradelanes as a result of one less week versus the prior year, lower volumes in Guam due to competitive losses and lower construction-related volumes in Hawaii, partially offset by higher fuel surcharge revenue and higher average freight rates in China and Hawaii.

 

On a year-over-year FEU basis, Hawaii container volume decreased by 11.1 percent primarily due to one less week and lower construction-related volume; Alaska volume decreased by 10.1 percent primarily due to one less week; China volume was 14.3 percent lower largely due to one less week as well as volume gains in the year ago period related to the Hanjin bankruptcy; and Guam volume was 27.7 percent lower due to competitive losses and one less week.

 

Ocean Transportation operating income decreased $11.9 million, or 36.5 percent, during the three months ended December 31, 2017, compared with the three months ended December 31, 2016.  This decrease was primarily due to lower volumes across the tradelanes as a result of one less week versus the prior year, higher terminal handling expenses, lower container volume in Guam as a result of competitive losses, and lower container volume in China due to volume gains in the year ago period related to the Hanjin bankruptcy,  partially offset by the favorable timing of fuel surcharge collections, higher average freight rates in China and Hawaii, and a higher contribution from SSAT. 

 

The Company’s SSAT terminal joint venture investment contributed $8.9 million during the three months ended December 31, 2017, compared to a $6.6 million contribution during the three months ended December  31, 2016.  The increase was primarily attributable to improved lift volume.

Ocean Transportation revenue increased $30.7 million, or 2.0 percent, during the year ended December 31, 2017, compared with the year ended December 31, 2016.  This increase was primarily due to higher fuel surcharge revenue and higher average freight rates in China, partially offset by lower construction-related volume, one less week and the absence of competitive volume gains in Hawaii and lower volume in Guam due to competitive losses and one less week.

 

On a year-over-year FEU basis, Hawaii container volume decreased by 6.5 percent primarily due to lower construction-related volume, one less week, and the absence of competitive volume gains in the prior year; Alaska volume decreased by 1.5 percent primarily due to one less week, partially offset by higher southbound volume attributable to the stronger seafood season; China volume was 7.1 percent higher due to stronger demand for the Company’s expedited service and additional sailings during the year; and Guam volume was 18.1 percent lower due to competitive losses and one less week.

 

Ocean Transportation operating income decreased $13.9 million, or 9.7 percent, during the year ended December 31, 2017, compared with the year ended December 31, 2016.  This decrease was primarily due to lower volumes in Hawaii, higher terminal handling costs and lower volume in Guam, partially offset by higher average freight rates in China, a higher contribution from SSAT, and favorable timing of fuel surcharge collections. 

 

The Company’s SSAT terminal joint venture investment contributed $28.2 million during the year ended December 31, 2017, compared to a $15.8 million contribution in the year ended December 31, 2016.  The increase was primarily attributable to improved lift volume.

Logistics revenue increased $13.0 million, or 11.5 percent, during the three months ended December 31, 2017, compared with the three months ended December 31, 2016.  This increase was primarily due to higher highway rates and volume, and higher fuel surcharge revenue.

 

Logistics operating income for the three months ended December 31, 2017 was approximately equal to the level achieved in the three months ended December 31, 2016 as higher revenue was offset by higher costs.

Logistics revenue increased $74.6 million, or 18.6 percent, during the year ended December 31, 2017, compared to the year ended December 31, 2016.  This increase was primarily due to the inclusion of freight forwarding revenue from the acquired Span Alaska business, higher intermodal volumes and higher fuel surcharge revenue.

 

Logistics operating income increased $8.7 million during the year ended December 31, 2017, compared to the year ended December 31, 2016.  The increase was primarily due to the inclusion of freight forwarding operating results attributable to the acquired Span Alaska business, partially offset by lower intermodal yield.

EBITDA is defined as the sum of net income plus income taxes, 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.

Opening Remarks Matson performed largely as expected in 4Q17 with favorable contributions from China and SSAT offset by unfavorable trends in Hawaii and Guam Matson’s net income and diluted EPS benefitted from a one-time, non-cash adjustment of $155.0 million or $3.62 per diluted share in 4Q17 as a result of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (the “Tax Act”) Recap of FY2017 results and operational activity: Favorable contributors: Stronger demand for Matson’s expedited China service Timing of fuel surcharge collections Higher lift volume at SSAT Unfavorable contributors: Lower construction-related cargo to Hawaii Competitive pressure in Guam Higher terminal handling costs Continue to advance on new vessel builds and Sand Island crane program Introducing full year and 1Q 2018 outlook: Expect 2018 operating income to approximate 2017 Expect 1Q18 Ocean Transportation operating income to be moderately higher than 1Q17 Expect 1Q18 Logistics operating income to approximate the level in 1Q17 See the Addendum for a reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP Financial Metrics

Update on Fleet Deployment Magnitude and timing of benefits subject to change based on fleet configuration and in-service timing. Actual operating costs may vary compared to those used. Analysis excludes the net effects of fuel and any changes in volume. When all four of the new vessels are fully deployed on an annual basis. Only applicable to the two Kanaloa Class vessels. Currently projected to occur in the fourth quarter of 2019. Not currently applicable given Hawaii volume currently served with a 10-ship deployment. This amount represents future potential savings in higher Hawaii volume scenarios that would have required an 11-ship deployment. Expected reduction in annual depreciation and amortization from four new vessels compared to seven existing steamships that will be scrapped. Given the expected costs of existing vessels exiting the active fleet through 2020, we have updated our views on the financial benefits of the new vessels Reaffirming that we expect $40 to $45 million in full year run-rate EBITDA benefits from the new vessels when comparing to an 11-ship deployment Due to the volume level in Hawaii, shifted into a 10-ship deployment in 4Q17 Expect to remain in a 10-ship deployment for the rest of 2018 and until the first Kanaloa Class ship is in-service in late 4Q19 For the current 10-ship deployment, expect the annual financial benefits of the new vessels to be approximately $28 to $31 million with almost all of the benefits beginning after the arrival of the 3rd vessel in 4Q19.

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, Adjusted Earnings per Share (“Adjusted EPS”), Adjusted Net Income, adjusted effective tax rate, adjusted income taxes, Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization (“EBITDA”), and Net Debt-to-EBITDA.
