The Greenbrier Companies Inc. (GBX) filed Quarterly Report for the period ended 2012-11-30.
Highlight of Business Operations:Total revenue for the three months ended November 30, 2012 was $415.4 million, an increase of $17.2 million from revenues of $398.2 million in the prior comparable period. The increase was primarily the result of higher revenues in the manufacturing segment of our business. Manufacturing segment revenues increased $22.7 million primarily from a higher per unit average selling price as a result of a change in product mix.
Net earnings attributable to Greenbrier for the three months ended November 30, 2012 were $10.4 million or $0.35 per diluted common share compared to $14.5 million or $0.48 per diluted common share for the three months ended November 30, 2011.
Wheel Services, Refurbishment & Parts revenue was $112.1 million for the three months ended November 30, 2012 compared to $117.7 million in the comparable period of the prior year. The decrease of $5.6 million was primarily attributed to lower demand for wheel set replacements as compared to the prior year and a decrease in scrap metal pricing. These were partially offset by an increase in demand for refurbishment work.
Selling and administrative expense was $26.1 million or 6.3% of revenue for the three months ended November 30, 2012 compared to $23.2 million or 5.8% of revenue for the prior comparable period, an increase of $2.9 million. The increase for the three months ended November 30, 2012 compared to the prior comparable period primarily related to higher employee related costs associated with annual compensation adjustments, increased headcount and rising healthcare costs.
Capital expenditures totaled $25.1 million for the three months ended November 30, 2012 and $15.0 million for the three months ended November 30, 2011. Of these capital expenditures, approximately $15.1 million and $9.2 million were attributable to Leasing & Services operations. Leasing & Services capital expenditures for 2013, net of proceeds from sales of railcar equipment, are expected to be approximately $42.0 million. We regularly sell assets from our lease fleet. Proceeds from sales of equipment were $10.1 million for the three months ended November 30, 2012 and $5.7 million in the comparable prior period.
