Capital Allocation Strategy FY 2019 cash flow priorities: Maintenance capex New vessel payments Sand Island terminal Phase I upgrade Capital allocation in FY 2020 through FY 2022: Maintenance capex and scrubbers Reduce leverage to the “low-2xs” Organic growth Acquisitions Next major capital demand is re-fleeting Alaska vessels in late 2020s




Actual and Estimated Other Capital Expenditures ($ in millions) Actual and Estimated Other Capital Expenditures (including maintenance capex)(1) (1) Cost and timing of projects subject to change. Key Projects: Sand Island cranes and related infrastructure Cost ~ $60 million Timing: 2018 to 2020 6 scrubbers Cost ~$9-10 million per vessel Timing: 2019 and 2020 New Span Alaska facility in Anchorage Cost ~ $26 million Timing: 2018 and 2019 Maintenance capex target of ~$50 million 3 new scrubbers announced in May 2019 $55.0 $62.6 $100.0 $85.0 $27.0 2017 2018 2019E 2020E




2019 Outlook FY 2019 Outlook Items Full Year Third Quarter Operating Income: Ocean Transportation Approximately 20% lower than the $131.1 million achieved in FY 2018 after adjusting 2018 result for full year impact of vessel sale-leaseback Moderately lower than the 3Q18 level of $48.7 million Logistics 10-15% higher than FY 2018 level of $32.7 million Approximate the 3Q18 level of $9.9 million Depreciation and Amortization Approximately $133 million, including $38 million in dry-dock amortization - EBITDA To approximate $270 million - Other Income/(Expense) Approximately $2.7 million - Interest Expense (excluding capitalized interest) Approximately $25 million - GAAP Effective Tax Rate Approximately 26%, excluding positive non-cash tax adjustment of $2.9 million in 1Q 2019 -




A Look at 2020 NOTE: Numbers used in this slide include previously disclosed: (i) approximately $30 million of total benefits from the 4 new vessels, the magnitude and timing of benefits subject to change based on fleet configuration and in-service timing; (ii) the expected financial pay-back benefits from the exhaust gas scrubber installations; and (iii) benefits from the new crane installations and modifications to existing cranes and other infrastructure investments at the Sand Island terminal. Actual operating cost reductions and additional revenue achieved may vary compared to those used in our projection of benefits. These benefits exclude the net effects of any changes in business activity in the tradelanes and should not be construed to mean that the Company’s Outlook for 2020 will be $30 million higher than 2019. The Company is making no statement regarding overall 2020 Outlook at this time. We expect approximately $30 million in financial benefits in 2020 from new vessels and other infrastructure investments and $40 million annually thereafter. 2019 is a transition year with several significant investment programs nearing finalization Reaffirm the previously mentioned financial benefits of the new vessels Some portion of these benefits already being captured in fiscal 2019 with Daniel K. Inouye and Kaimana Hila in service, the impact of which is included in our full year 2019 Outlook In 2020, we expect approximately $30 million in incremental financial benefits compared to 2019 comprised of: Vessel benefits of a 9 ship deployment for a full year, reduced operating and maintenance expenses, utilization of the newly installed exhaust gas scrubbers, autos/rolling stock garage capacity utilization, and larger capacity vessel in the CLX; and Crane and other infrastructure investments at Sand Island In 2021 and thereafter, we expect approximately $40 million in annual benefits compared to 2019, due to full year run-rates from all investments

IMO 2020 and Fuel Strategy IMO 2020 regulation: all vessels worldwide restricted to 0.5% sulfur content fuel Current options available to Matson to comply with IMO 2020 regulations: Matson will be 100% compliant with IMO 2020 regulations. 0.5% Distillate Expensive Prolonged use could lead to higher “wear and tear” 0.5% Residual Expensive Availability in our ports is main concern Some “wear and tear” possible Exhaust Gas Cleaning Systems (“Scrubbers”) Less expensive Heavy Fuel Oil We have a history with scrubbers in Alaska service; short pay-back period Liquefied Natural Gas (“LNG”) Less expensive LNG Infrastructure lacking in the major U.S. West Coast ports Matson’s Strategy: In August 2018, announced investment in (3) scrubbers on the 2600s at a cost of $9 million per install In May 2019, announced that will invest in (3) additional scrubbers at a cost of $10 million per install New vessels will run on compliant fuel while determining use of LNG or scrubbers

Concluding Remarks Matt Cox, Chairman and CEO




Concluding Remarks In the late innings on the new vessel build program. When Lurline enters service will step down to a 9-ship deployment End of the steamship era when Old Matsonia is replaced by Lurline Majority of financial benefits of the new vessels around the corner Honolulu terminal investments will add to our competitive advantages. New cranes in place and other infrastructure work for Phase I headed towards completion in the first half of 2020 Honolulu terminal investments to reduce congestion/complexity and increase efficiency Matson’s terminal will be the most efficient in the trade Well-positioned for IMO 2020 regulations. 6 scrubber installations planned; by end of 2020, 8 of 12 active vessels in core tradelanes will have scrubbers installed Maintain optionality on fuel strategy for lowest cost solutions for Matson and its customers




Concluding Remarks (continued) We are very well-positioned in the markets we serve. Hawaii: Remain the market leader Alaska: Will benefit from improving Alaska economy China: Maintain highly differentiated service offering Guam: Competing effectively with APL SSAT: Very well-positioned; new Seattle terminal offers long-term growth opportunities Logistics: Opportunities to grow in niche areas; Span Alaska looking to capitalize on improving Alaska economy Focused on organic growth opportunities across the tradelanes and within Logistics. Significant cash flow generation allows for quick paydown of debt. Leverage peak expected in 1Q 2020 and shortly thereafter expect to pay down debt to target of “low-2s”

(1)    EBITDA is defined as the sum of net income plus income taxes, interest expense and depreciation and amortization (including defferd 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  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 convenant compliance
