Genesee & Wyoming Reports Traffic for July 2013

DARIEN, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Genesee & Wyoming Inc. (G&W) (NYSE: GWR) today reported traffic volumes for July 2013.

Beginning in January 2013, G&W is reporting consolidated traffic volumes including carloads from RailAmerica Inc. (RA) railroads that were previously reported separately. To provide comparative context for 2013 consolidated traffic volumes, G&W is providing supplemental 2012 carload information on a pro forma basis as though the RA railroads were owned by G&W on January 1, 2012. In addition, G&W has amended RA’s 2012 carload information to conform with G&W’s reporting methodology.

G&W’s traffic in July 2013 was 165,072 carloads, an increase of 84,214 carloads, or 104.2%, compared to G&W’s traffic in July 2012, and an increase of 13,400 carloads, or 8.8%, compared to total July 2012 carloads pro forma for the RA acquisition.

The table below sets forth consolidated summary carload information for July 2013 and July 2012:

Metals traffic increased 3,910 carloads primarily in G&W’s Ohio Valley, Northeast and Southern regions due to increased shipment volumes in all three regions and partially due to a maintenance outage at a steel mill in the Southern region that negatively affected shipment volumes in July 2012. Agricultural products traffic increased 2,214 carloads primarily due to increased shipments in G&W’s Australia and Midwest regions. Metallic Ores traffic increased 1,857 carloads primarily due to increased iron ore shipments in G&W’s Australia Region. Minerals & Stone traffic increased 1,613 carloads primarily due to increased rock salt shipments in G&W’s Northeast Region. All remaining traffic increased by a net 3,806 carloads.

Carload Reporting for RailAmerica Inc. Traffic

July 2012 carloads from RailAmerica Inc. railroads include eliminations of 1,619 carloads, compared to RailAmerica’s historically reported figures to remove duplication of traffic that interchanges with another owned railroad. This elimination conforms with G&W’s reporting policy. Also, starting in January 2013, G&W has re-allocated certain products within the reported commodity groups. The carload information included in this release presents both 2013 and 2012 on a consistent basis for these changes.

Other

Historically, G&W has found that carload information may be indicative of freight revenues on its railroads, but may not be indicative of total revenues, operating expenses, operating income or net income. Car movements related to railcar switching, including activities at port terminals, are excluded from our carload information as the resulting revenues are classified as non-freight.
