The Company reported record second quarter total and operating revenue (revenue excluding all fuel and subcontracted transportation), reflecting higher revenue across all business segments, partially offset by negative impacts from foreign exchange. Increased total revenue was also partially offset by lower fuel costs passed through to customers. Total and operating revenue for the three months ended June 30 were as follows:

Commenting on the Company's second quarter results, Ryder Chairman and CEO Robert Sanchez said, "We modestly outperformed our second quarter forecast, despite a challenging freight transportation environment, primarily due to better full service lease results and lower overheads. We continued to execute well on our long-term strategy, demonstrating solid organic growth in our contractual businesses in the quarter. This revenue growth, along with other items from our 2016 playbook, including overhead reductions and rental fleet right-sizing actions, largely offset weakness in the rental and used vehicle markets. Ryder's largest product line, full service lease, grew 9% with a fleet count that is now up by 3,000 vehicles for 2016. The dedicated transportation business also delivered double-digit growth in both revenue and earnings, as we continued to benefit from converting existing lease customers to expanded, higher value solutions.

"Strong secular business trends continued to drive outsourcing, particularly in our lease business, where approximately 40% of new business in 2016 has come from customers that are new to outsourcing. We furthered Ryder's ability to leverage these trends with the launch of two new products, ChoiceLease Preventive and ChoiceLease On-Demand, during the quarter. These offerings provide new ways to attract more of the large do-it-yourself market that has not yet experienced the cost and efficiency benefits of fleet outsourcing. Lastly, we were pleased to resume anti-dilutive share repurchases in the quarter."

Second Quarter Business Segment Operating Results

Fleet Management Solutions

In the Fleet Management Solutions (FMS) business segment, total revenue in the second quarter of 2016 was $1.15 billion, consistent with the year-earlier period. Operating revenue (revenue excluding fuel) in the second quarter of 2016 was $995 million, up 4% compared with the year-earlier period. Full service lease revenue increased 9% due to fleet growth and higher prices on replacement vehicles. The number of full service lease vehicles (excluding U.K. trailers) increased by 6,500 from the year-earlier period and increased by 1,300 sequentially from the first quarter of 2016. Commercial rental revenue decreased by 10% from the year-earlier period due to lower demand.

FMS earnings before tax were $111.2 million in the second quarter of 2016, down 9% compared with $122.5 million in the same period of 2015. Decreased earnings reflect lower commercial rental performance as well as lower used vehicle results, partially offset by higher full service lease performance and reduced overhead spending. Commercial rental performance declined due to lower demand and lower fleet utilization particularly with tractors. Rental power fleet utilization was 74.7% for the second quarter, down from 78.1% in the year-earlier period, on a 7% smaller average fleet. Rental pricing decreased 1% from the prior year. Used vehicle results declined due to lower pricing particularly on tractors, partially offset by higher sales volume. Full service lease results benefited from fleet growth. Full service lease and commercial rental results also benefited from lower depreciation associated with increased residual values. FMS earnings before tax as a percentage of total and operating revenue were 9.7% and 11.2%, respectively, in the second quarter of 2016, down 100 and 160 basis points from the same quarter a year ago, reflecting lower used vehicle sales results.

Dedicated Transportation Solutions

In the Dedicated Transportation Solutions (DTS) business segment, total revenue in the second quarter of 2016 was up 16% to $258 million and operating revenue (revenue excluding fuel and subcontracted transportation) was up 10% to $194 million compared with the year-earlier period. DTS total and operating revenue grew as a result of new business, as well as higher pricing and increased volumes.

DTS earnings before tax of $16.5 million increased 32% in the second quarter of 2016 compared with $12.4 million in 2015 due to lower insurance costs and operating revenue growth. DTS earnings before tax as a percentage of total and operating revenue were 6.4% and 8.5%, respectively, in the second quarter of 2016, up 80 and 150 basis points from the year-earlier period.

Supply Chain Solutions

In the Supply Chain Solutions (SCS) business segment, total revenue was up 1% to $402 million and operating revenue (revenue excluding fuel and subcontracted transportation) was up 4% to $332 million compared with the year-earlier period. SCS total and operating revenue grew as a result of new business, increased volumes, and higher pricing, with total revenue partially offset by lower subcontracted transportation and reduced fuel costs passed through to customers.

SCS earnings before tax of $28.4 million in the second quarter of 2016 increased 2% from $27.7 million in 2015, primarily driven by new business. SCS earnings before tax as a percentage of total and operating revenue were 7.1% and 8.6%, respectively, in the second quarter of 2016, up 10 and down 10 basis points from the prior year.

Corporate Financial Information

Central Support Services

Central Support Services (CSS) are overhead costs incurred to support all business segments and product lines. Most CSS costs are allocated to the business segments. In the second quarter of 2016, unallocated CSS costs were $11 million, unchanged from the year-earlier period.

Items Excluded from Comparable Earnings

Non-operating components of pension costs are excluded from both comparable earnings and segment earnings before tax in order to more accurately reflect the operating performance of the business. Non-operating pension costs totaled $7.6 million ($4.4 million after tax) or $0.09 per diluted share in the second quarter of 2016, up from $4.7 million ($2.7 million after tax) or $0.05 per diluted share in the year-earlier period. This increase was largely due to lower asset returns.

During the second quarter of 2016, we determined that certain pension benefit improvements made in 2009 were not fully reflected in our projected benefit obligation. The amounts were not material to the Company's financial statements in any individual period. Accordingly, we recognized a one-time, non-cash charge of $7.7 million in selling, general and administrative expenses ($4.8 million after tax) or $0.09 per diluted share as a cumulative correction related to these benefit improvements.

In the second quarter of 2015, the Company recognized a pre-tax charge of $1.9 million ($1.2 million after tax) or $0.02 per diluted share from professional fees associated with cost saving initiatives. Comparable earnings in the second quarter of 2015 also excluded benefits from state law changes of $1.9 million or $0.03 per diluted share.

Income Taxes

The Company's effective and comparable income tax rates from continuing operations for the second quarter of 2016 were 36.6% and 36.9%, respectively, compared with 35.6% and 37.1%, in the year-earlier period. The effective tax rates in the prior year benefited from enacted tax law changes in multiple jurisdictions.

Capital Expenditures

Year-to-date capital expenditures decreased to $1.01 billion, compared with $1.45 billion in 2015. The decrease in capital expenditures primarily reflects lower planned investments in the commercial rental fleet. Proceeds primarily from used vehicle sales of $252 million improved 19% compared with $212 million in 2015, due to increased volumes, partially offset by lower vehicle pricing. Net capital expenditures (including proceeds from the sale of assets) were $763 million in 2016, down from $1.24 billion in 2015. The Company now forecasts full-year 2016 gross capital expenditures of $1.9 billion, compared with a prior forecast of $2.0 billion, due to increased usage of used vehicles to fulfill lease sales.

Cash Flow

Year-to-date operating cash flow was $763 million, up 16% from $659 million in 2015 due to a reduction in working capital, partially offset by higher pension contributions. Total cash generated (including proceeds from used vehicle sales) (non-GAAP measure) was $1.06 billion, compared with $904 million in 2015. Free cash flow (non-GAAP measure) was negative $62 million, compared with negative $425 million in 2015, reflecting lower net capital expenditures. The Company's full-year 2016 forecast for operating cash flow remains unchanged at $1.6 billion. The Company's full-year free cash flow is now forecast at $200 million, up from a prior forecast of $100 million, reflecting lower net capital expenditures from increased usage of used vehicles to fulfill lease sales.

Leverage

Debt increased by $131 million compared with year-end 2015, due primarily to investments in vehicles to fund growth. Debt to equity was 275% compared with 277% at year-end 2015, and within Ryder's long-term target range of 225% to 275%. The Company's year-end debt to equity forecast is now 255%, compared with its previous estimate of 245%, reflecting the impact of foreign currency and the pension impact of lower interest rates, partially offset by improved free cash flow.

2016 Earnings Forecast

Commenting on the Company's 2016 outlook, Mr. Sanchez said, "Based on current conditions, we are lowering our expectations for rental demand and used vehicle volumes, particularly tractors. We expect used vehicle sales pricing to be consistent with recent trends. Used vehicle sales inventories peaked in the second quarter and are expected to decline to the high end of our target range by year end. In light of the soft environment, we continue to execute on our playbook by growing our contractual businesses, reducing our rental fleet, maximizing our used truck proceeds while managing inventories, and controlling discretionary spending.

"Although we are experiencing some market softness impacting the transactional parts of our business, we continue to benefit from secular outsourcing trends and deliver on our long-term strategy to drive growth from further penetration of the non-outsourced market. Full-year lease fleet growth is anticipated to be 4,000 vehicles, up from a prior forecast of 3,500, reflecting increased redeployments in the first half of the year. Supply Chain Solutions and Dedicated Transportation Solutions are both anticipated to deliver solid contributions to revenue and earnings, in line with our prior expectations. Lastly, we also expect full-year free cash flow to be $200 million, up $100 million from our prior forecast, due to increased usage of used equipment to fulfill lease sales."

Ryder is revising its full-year 2016 GAAP EPS forecast to a range of $5.49 to $5.64 from a prior forecast of $5.79 to $5.99. Additionally, the Company's full-year 2016 comparable EPS forecast has been revised to a range of $5.90 to $6.05 from a prior range of $6.10 to $6.30. The Company is also establishing a third quarter 2016 GAAP EPS forecast range of $1.57 to $1.64, and a comparable EPS forecast range of $1.65 to $1.72, reflecting unfavorable year-over-year comparisons in both commercial rental and used vehicle sales, partially offset by continuing growth in Ryder's contractual product lines.

Notations

Earnings Before Tax (EBT): Ryder's primary measurement of business segment financial performance, earnings before tax (EBT), allocates Central Support Services to each business segment and excludes restructuring and other items, as well as non-operating pension costs.

Capital Expenditures: In Ryder's business, capital expenditures are generally used to purchase revenue earning equipment (trucks, tractors, and trailers) primarily to support the full service lease product line and secondarily to support the commercial rental product line within Ryder's FMS business segment. The level of capital required to support the full service lease product line varies directly with customer contract signings for replacement vehicles and growth. These contracts are long-term agreements that result in ongoing revenues and cash flows to Ryder, typically over a three- to ten-year term. The commercial rental product line utilizes capital for the purchase of vehicles to replenish and expand the Company's fleet available for shorter-term use by contractual or occasional customers.

Certain statements and information included in this news release are "forward-looking statements" under the Federal Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, including our expectations regarding market conditions, earnings performance, revenue in our business segments, fleet size, growth in our contractual product lines, demand and pricing trends in commercial rental and used vehicle sales, free cash flow, capital expenditures, debt and continued use of our share repurchase program. Accordingly, these forward-looking statements should be evaluated with consideration given to the many risks and uncertainties inherent in our business that could cause actual results and events to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements. Important factors that could cause such differences include, among others, lower than expected lease sales, further decreases in commercial rental demand or poor acceptance of rental pricing, our ability to right-size our commercial rental fleet in line with demand, availability of labor to maintain our fleet at normalized levels, worsening of market demand for used vehicles impacting current pricing, residual values and our anticipated proportion of retail versus wholesale sales, lack of customer demand for on-demand maintenance, higher than expected maintenance costs from new engine technology or due to lower than expected benefits from maintenance initiatives, decreases in freight demand or volumes, poor operational execution particularly with start-ups and new product launches, our ability to obtain adequate profit margins for our services, our inability to maintain current pricing levels due to soft economic conditions, uncertainty and instability in the global economic market, business interruptions or expenditures due to severe weather or natural occurrences, competition from other service providers and new entrants, customer retention levels, loss of key customers, driver and technician shortages resulting in higher procurement costs and turnover rates, unexpected bad debt reserves or write-offs, changes in customers' business environments that will limit their ability to commit to long-term vehicle leases, a decrease in credit ratings, increased debt costs, adequacy of accounting estimates, reserves and accruals particularly with respect to pension, taxes, depreciation, insurance and revenue, sudden or unusual changes in fuel prices, unanticipated currency exchange rate fluctuations, our ability to manage our cost structure, and the risks described in our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The risks included here are not exhaustive. New risks emerge from time to time and it is not possible for management to predict all such risk factors or to assess the impact of such risks on our business.

*Non-GAAP financial measure.
** Non-GAAP financial measure. We refer to the net amount of cash generated from operating activities and
investing activities (excluding changes in restricted cash and acquisitions) from continuing operations as
"free cash flow". We calculate free cash flow as the sum of net cash provided by operating activities and
net cash provided by the sale of revenue earning equipment and operating property and equipment,
collections on direct finance leases and other cash inflows from investing activities, less purchases of
property and revenue earning equipment.
