For the six months ended June 30, 2018, Matson reported net income of $46.8 million, or $1.09 per diluted share compared with $31.0 million, or $0.72 per diluted share in 2017.  Consolidated revenue for the six month period ended June 30, 2018 was $1,068.5 million, compared with $986.9 million in 2017.

Matt Cox, Matson's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented, "Our performance in the quarter was solid with Ocean Transportation's results approaching the level achieved last year and continued strong results across all service lines in Logistics."

Mr. Cox added, "For full year 2018 in Ocean Transportation, we continue to expect improvements in each of our core tradelanes with the exception of Guam and China.  In Guam, we expect to face continued competitive pressure, and in China we continue to expect modestly lower volume coming off an exceptionally strong 2017.  We continue to expect Ocean Transportation's full year 2018 operating income to be modestly higher than the level achieved in 2017.  For 2018 in Logistics, we are raising our Outlook for the year given the strong trends across all service lines."

Second Quarter 2018 Discussion and Outlook for 2018

Ocean Transportation: The Company's container volume in the Hawaii service in the second quarter 2018 was flat year-over-year.  The Hawaii economy continues to be strong, supported primarily by healthy tourism activity and low unemployment.  The Company expects volume in 2018 to approximate the level achieved in 2017, reflecting a solid Hawaii economy and stable market share.

In China, the Company's container volume in the second quarter 2018 was 5.9 percent lower year-over-year largely due to one less sailing.  Matson continued to realize a sizeable rate premium in the second quarter 2018 and achieved average freight rates modestly higher than the second quarter 2017.  For 2018, the Company expects pricing to approximate the average rate achieved in 2017 and volume to be modestly lower than the level achieved in 2017.

In Guam, as expected, the Company's container volume in the second quarter 2018 was lower on a year-over-year basis, the result of competitive losses.  For 2018, the Company expects a heightened competitive environment and lower volume than the levels achieved in 2017.

In Alaska, the Company's container volume for the second quarter 2018 was 0.6 percent lower year-over-year, primarily due to lower southbound volume as a result of a delayed start to the seafood season.  For 2018, the Company expects volume to be modestly higher than the level achieved in 2017 with improvement in northbound volume, partially 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 second quarter performance and the outlook trends noted above, the Company expects full year 2018 Ocean Transportation operating income to be modestly higher than the operating income of $126.4 million† achieved in 2017.  In the third quarter 2018, the Company expects Ocean Transportation operating income to be modestly lower than the operating income of $51.0 million† achieved in the third quarter 2017.

Logistics: In the second quarter 2018, operating income for the Company's Logistics segment was $2.5 million higher compared to the operating income achieved in the second quarter 2017 due to improved performance across all of the service lines.  For the second half of 2018 in Logistics, the Company expects year-over-year improvement in operating income to approximate the year-over-year increase achieved in the first half of 2018.  In the third quarter 2018, the Company expects operating income to be moderately higher than the level achieved in the third quarter 2017.

Depreciation and Amortization: For the full year 2018, the Company expects depreciation and amortization expense to be approximately $132 million, inclusive of dry-docking amortization of approximately $36 million.

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

Other Income/(Expense): The Company expects full year 2018 other income/(expense) to be approximately $2.4 million, which is attributable to other component costs related to the Company's pension and post-retirement plans.

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

Income Taxes:  In the second quarter 2018, the Company's effective tax rate was 21.3 percent.  For the balance of 2018, the Company expects its effective tax rate to be approximately 28 percent.

Capital and Vessel Dry-docking Expenditures:  In the second quarter 2018, the Company made maintenance capital expenditure payments of $12.4 million, capitalized vessel construction expenditures of $109.1 million, and dry-docking payments of $0.5 million.  For the full year 2018, the Company expects to make maintenance capital expenditure payments of approximately $83 million, vessel construction expenditures (inclusive of capitalized interest and owner's items) of approximately $388 million, and dry-docking payments of approximately $17 million.

Ocean Transportation revenue increased $13.9 million, or 3.5 percent, during the three months ended June 30, 2018, compared with the three months ended June 30, 2017.  This increase was primarily due to higher fuel surcharge revenue,   revenue from the new Okinawa service and higher rates in Hawaii, partially offset by lower revenue in Guam.

On a year-over-year FEU basis, Hawaii container volume was flat; Alaska volume decreased by 0.6 percent primarily due to lower southbound volume as a result of a delayed start to the seafood season; China volume was 5.9 percent lower primarily due to one less sailing; and Guam volume was 11.1 percent lower due to increased competition.

Ocean Transportation operating income decreased $3.5 million during the three months ended June 30, 2018, compared with the three months ended June 30, 2017.  This decrease was primarily due to higher terminal handling costs and lower revenue in Guam, partially offset by lower vessel operating costs, higher container rates in Hawaii and a higher contribution from SSAT. 

The Company's SSAT terminal joint venture investment contributed $9.1 million during the three months ended June 30, 2018, compared to a $6.9 million contribution during the three months ended June 30, 2017.  The increase was primarily attributable to higher lift volume.

Ocean Transportation revenue increased $23.2 million, or 3.0 percent, during the six months ended June 30, 2018, compared with the six months ended June 30, 2017.  This increase was primarily due to higher fuel surcharge revenue and revenue from the new Okinawa service, partially offset by lower revenue in Guam and lower volume in China.

On a year-over-year FEU basis, Hawaii container volume decreased by 0.9 percent primarily due to lower eastbound volume; Alaska volume increased by 4.5 percent primarily due to an increase in northbound volumes mainly related to the dry-docking of a competitor's vessel and one additional sailing; China volume was 13.7 percent lower primarily due to fewer sailings and lower volume during the Lunar New Year period; and Guam volume was 10.2 percent lower due to increased competition.

Ocean Transportation operating income increased $5.7 million during the six months ended June 30, 2018, compared with the six months ended June 30, 2017.  This increase was primarily due to lower vessel operating costs and a higher contribution from SSAT, partially offset by higher terminal handling costs and lower revenue in Guam.

The Company's SSAT terminal joint venture investment contributed $19.6 million during the six months ended June 30, 2018, compared to an $11.8 million contribution during the six months ended June 30, 2017.  The increase was primarily attributable to higher lift volume.

The Company adopted Compensation – Retirement Benefits (Topic 715), Improving the Presentation of Net Periodic Pension Cost and Benefit Cost ("ASU 2017-07"), during the quarter ended March 31, 2018.  ASU 2017-07 requires employers that sponsor defined benefit pension and post-retirement plans to present the service cost component of net benefit cost in the same income statement line item as other employee compensation costs arising from services rendered, and that only the service cost component will be eligible for capitalization.  The other components of the net periodic benefit cost must be presented separately from the line item that includes the service cost component and outside of the income from operations subtotal.  The Company recorded a retrospective reclassification to Ocean Transportation operating income, Logistics operating income, and to other income (expense) to conform prior year amounts to the current period presentation.  There was no change to income before income taxes for all periods presented.

(2)

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.
