RYDER SYSTEM, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES
NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED CONDENSED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(unaudited)


(A) INTERIM FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

The accompanying unaudited Consolidated Condensed Financial Statements include the accounts of Ryder System, Inc. (Ryder) and all entities in which Ryder has a controlling voting interest (“subsidiaries”) and variable interest entities (VIEs) required to be consolidated in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (U.S. GAAP). The accompanying unaudited Consolidated Condensed Financial Statements have been prepared in accordance with the accounting policies described in our 2013 Annual Report on Form 10-K and should be read in conjunction with the Consolidated Financial Statements and notes thereto. These financial statements do not include all of the information and footnotes required by U.S. GAAP for complete financial statements. In the opinion of management, all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring accruals) considered necessary for a fair statement have been included and the disclosures herein are adequate. The operating results for interim periods are unaudited and are not necessarily indicative of the results that can be expected for a full year.

Certain amounts have been reclassified to conform to the current period presentation, including intercompany profit allocations between Fleet Management Solutions (FMS) and Supply Chain Solutions (SCS). These reclassifications were immaterial to the financial statements taken as a whole.

(B) RECENT ACCOUNTING PRONOUNCEMENTS

Disclosure of Going Concern Uncertainties

On August 27, 2014, the FASB issued ASU No. 2014-15, Disclosure of Uncertainties about an Entity's Ability to Continue as a Going Concern, which requires an entity to evaluate whether conditions or events, in the aggregate, raise substantial doubt about the entity's ability to continue as a going concern for one year from the date the financial statements are issued or are available to be issued. The guidance will become effective January 1, 2017. The adoption of ASU 2014-15 will not have an impact on our consolidated financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

Revenue Recognition

On May 28, 2014, the FASB issued ASU No. 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers, which requires an entity to recognize the amount of revenue to which it expects to be entitled for the transfer of promised goods or services to customers. The ASU will replace most existing revenue recognition guidance when it becomes effective January 1, 2017. Early application is not permitted. The standard permits the use of either the retrospective or cumulative effect transition methods. We are evaluating the effect that ASU 2014-09 will have on our consolidated financial statements and related disclosures. We have not yet selected a transition method nor have we determined the effect of the standard on our consolidated financial position and results of operations.

Discontinued Operations and Significant Disposals

On April 10, 2014, the FASB issued ASU No. 2014-08, Reporting Discontinued Operations and Disclosures of Disposals of Components of an Entity. The standard requires a reporting entity to present the assets and liabilities of a disposal group that includes a discontinued operation separately in the asset and liability sections, respectively, of the statement of financial position for each comparative period. The guidance will become effective January 1, 2015. The adoption of ASU 2014-08 will not have an impact on our consolidated financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

Unrecognized Tax Benefits

On July 18, 2013, the FASB issued ASU 2013-11, Presentation of an Unrecognized Tax Benefit (UTB) When a Net Operating Loss (NOL) Carryforward, a Similar Tax Loss, or a Tax Credit Carryforward Exists. Under this guidance, an unrecognized tax benefit, or a portion of an unrecognized tax benefit, should be presented in the financial statements as a reduction to a deferred tax asset for a net operating loss carryforward. This guidance became effective January 1, 2014 and resulted in a reclassification of $38.8 million from other non-current liabilities to deferred income taxes in our December 31, 2013 balance sheet. Other than the change in presentation within the Consolidated Condensed Balance Sheets, this accounting guidance did not have an impact on our consolidated financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

(C) ACQUISITIONS

On August 1, 2014, we acquired all of the common stock of Bullwell Trailer Solutions, Ltd, a U.K.-based trailer repair and maintenance company for a purchase price of approximately $14.6 million, net of cash acquired. The acquisition complements our FMS business segment coverage in the U.K. Approximately $8.1 million of the stock purchase price has been paid. The purchase price includes $5.9 million in contingent consideration to be paid to the seller provided certain conditions are met. As of September 30, 2014, the fair value of the contingent consideration has been reflected in "Accrued expenses and other current liabilities" and "Other non-current liabilities" in our Consolidated Condensed Balance Sheet. The preliminary purchase accounting for this acquisition resulted in goodwill and customer relationship intangible assets of $11.5 million and $1.6 million, respectively, with the remaining amount allocated to tangible assets, less liabilities assumed. This allocation is subject to change as the Company finalizes purchase accounting. Transaction costs related to the acquisition were $0.6 million during 2014 and were reflected within "Selling, general and administrative expenses" in our Consolidated Condensed Statements of Earnings.

The assets, liabilities and results of operations of the business acquired were not material to the Company’s consolidated financial position or results of operations and therefore pro forma financial information for the acquisition was not presented.

(D) DISCONTINUED OPERATIONS

In 2009, we ceased SCS service operations in Brazil, Argentina, Chile and European markets. Accordingly, results of these operations, financial position and cash flows are separately reported as discontinued operations for all periods presented either in the Consolidated Condensed Financial Statements or notes thereto.

Summarized results of discontinued operations were as follows:
 
Three months ended September 30,
 
Nine months ended September 30,

Although we discontinued our South American operations in 2009, we continue to be party to various federal, state and local legal proceedings involving labor matters, tort claims and tax assessments. We have established loss provisions for any matters where we believe a loss is probable and can be reasonably estimated. For matters where a reserve has not been established and for which we believe a loss is reasonably possible, as well as for matters where a reserve has been recorded but for which an exposure to loss in excess of the amount accrued is reasonably possible, we believe that such losses will not have a material effect on our consolidated condensed financial statements.

In Brazil, we were assessed $4.8 million (before and after tax) in prior years for various federal income taxes and social contribution taxes for the 1997 and 1998 tax years. We have successfully overturned these federal tax assessments in the lower courts; however, there is a reasonable possibility that these rulings could be reversed and we would be required to pay the assessments. We believe it is more likely than not that our position will ultimately be sustained if appealed and no amounts have been reserved for these matters. We are entitled to indemnification for a portion of any resulting liability on these federal tax claims which, if honored, would reduce the estimated loss.

(E) SHARE-BASED COMPENSATION PLANS

Share-based incentive awards are provided to employees under the terms of various share-based compensation plans (collectively, the “Plans”). The Plans are administered by the Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors. Awards under the Plans principally include at-the-money stock options, nonvested stock and cash awards. Nonvested stock awards include grants of market-based, performance-based, and time-vested restricted stock rights. Under the terms of our Plans, dividends may be paid on our nonvested stock awards. Dividends on nonvested stock granted after 2011 are not paid unless the award vests. Upon vesting, the amount of the dividends paid is equal to the aggregate dividends declared on common shares during the period from the date of grant of the award until the date the shares underlying the award are delivered.

(F) EARNINGS PER SHARE

We compute earnings per share using the two-class method. The two-class method of computing earnings per share is an earnings allocation formula that determines earnings per share for common stock and any participating securities according to dividends declared (whether paid or unpaid) and participation rights in undistributed earnings. Our nonvested stock granted prior to 2012 and restricted stock units granted to our Board of Directors are considered participating securities since these share-based awards contain a non-forfeitable right to dividend cash payments prior to vesting. Under the two-class method, earnings per common share are computed by dividing the sum of distributed earnings and undistributed earnings allocated to common shareholders by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding for the period. In applying the two-class method, undistributed earnings are allocated to both common shares and participating securities based on the weighted average shares outstanding during the period.

The following table presents the calculation of basic and diluted earnings per common share from continuing operations:

Revenue earning equipment, net includes vehicles acquired under capital leases of $47.9 million, less accumulated depreciation of $21.3 million, at September 30, 2014, and $54.2 million, less accumulated depreciation of $22.0 million, at December 31, 2013.

At the end of 2013, we completed our annual review of residual values and useful lives of revenue earning equipment. Based on the results of our analysis, we adjusted the estimated residual values of certain classes of revenue earning equipment effective January 1, 2014. The change in estimated residual values and useful lives increased pre-tax earnings for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014 by approximately $6.3 million and $18.8 million, respectively.

We lease revenue earning equipment to customers for periods typically ranging from three to seven years for trucks and tractors and up to ten years for trailers. The majority of our leases are classified as operating leases. However, some of our revenue earning equipment leases are classified as direct financing leases and, to a lesser extent, sales-type leases. As of September 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013, the net investment in direct financing and sales-type leases was $411.4 million and $400.1 million, respectively. Our direct financing lease customers operate in a wide variety of industries, and we have no significant customer concentrations in any one industry. We assess credit risk for all of our customers including those who lease equipment under direct financing leases upon signing of a full service lease contract. For those customers who are designated as high risk, we typically require deposits to be paid in advance in order to mitigate our credit risk. Additionally, our receivables are collateralized by the vehicles, based on their estimated fair values, which further mitigates our credit risk.

As of September 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013, the amount of direct financing lease receivables past due was not significant, and there were no impaired receivables. Accordingly, we do not believe there is a material risk of default with respect to the direct financing lease receivables. The allowance for credit losses was $0.3 million and $0.5 million as of September 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013, respectively.

In August of 2014, we completed a sale-leaseback transaction of revenue earning equipment with third parties not deemed to be variable interest entities and this transaction qualified for off-balance sheet treatment. Proceeds from the sale-leaseback transaction totaled $125.8 million. We recorded a deferred gain on the sale-leaseback transaction of approximately $1.2 million that will be recognized over the respective lease terms, which range from 66 to 84 months. We did not enter into any sale-leaseback transactions during 2013.

The notional amount of executed interest rate swaps designated as fair value hedges was $600 million and $400 million at September 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013, respectively.

We maintain a $900 million global revolving credit facility with a syndicate of twelve lending institutions led by Bank of America N.A., Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ, Ltd., BNP Paribas, Mizuho Corporate Bank, Ltd., Royal Bank of Canada, Royal Bank of Scotland Plc, U.S. Bank National Association and Wells Fargo Bank, N.A. The global credit facility matures in October 2018. The global facility is used primarily to finance working capital but can also be used to issue up to $75 million in letters of credit (there were no letters of credit outstanding against the facility at September 30, 2014). At our option, the interest rate on borrowings under the credit facility is based on LIBOR, prime, federal funds or local equivalent rates. The agreement provides for annual facility fees which range from 8.0 basis points to 27.5 basis points and are based on Ryder’s long-term credit ratings. The annual facility fee is 12.5 basis points, which applies to the total facility size of $900 million. The credit facility contains no provisions limiting its availability in the event of a material adverse change to Ryder’s business operations; however, the credit facility does contain standard representations and warranties, events of default, cross-default provisions and certain affirmative and negative covenants. In order to maintain availability of funding, we must maintain a ratio of debt to consolidated net worth of less than or equal to 300%. Net worth, as defined in the credit facility, represents shareholders' equity excluding any accumulated other comprehensive income or loss associated with our pension and other postretirement plans. The ratio at September 30, 2014 was 184%. At September 30, 2014, there was $564.0 million available under the credit facility.

Our global revolving credit facility enables us to refinance short-term obligations on a long-term basis. Settlement of short-term commercial paper obligations not expected to require the use of working capital are classified as long-term as we have both the intent and ability to refinance on a long-term basis. In addition, we have the intent and ability to refinance the current portion of long-term debt on a long-term basis. At September 30, 2014, we classified $333.0 million of short-term commercial paper and $250.0 million of the current portion of long-term debt as long-term debt. At December 31, 2013, we classified $498.2 million of short-term commercial paper as long-term debt.

In May 2014, we issued $400 million of unsecured medium-term notes maturing in September 2019. In February 2014, we issued $350 million of unsecured medium-term notes maturing in June 2019. The proceeds from the notes were used to reduce commercial paper balances and for general corporate purposes. If the notes are downgraded below investment grade following, and as a result of, a change in control, the note holder can require us to repurchase all or a portion of the notes at a purchase price equal to 101% of principal plus accrued and unpaid interest.

We have a trade receivables purchase and sale program, pursuant to which we sell certain of our domestic trade accounts receivable to a bankruptcy remote, consolidated subsidiary of Ryder, that in turn sells, on a revolving basis, an ownership interest in certain of these accounts receivable to a receivables conduit or committed purchasers. The subsidiary is considered a VIE and is consolidated based on our control of the entity’s activities. We use this program to provide additional liquidity to fund our operations, particularly when it is cost effective to do so. The costs under the program may vary based on changes in interest rates. The available proceeds that may be received under the program are limited to $175 million. If no event occurs that causes early termination, the 364-day program will expire on October 24, 2014. We are currently in the process of renewing the program through October 2015. The program contains provisions restricting its availability in the event of a material adverse change to our business operations or the collectibility of the collateralized receivables. At September 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013, no amounts were outstanding under the program. Sales of receivables under this program will be accounted for as secured borrowings based on our continuing involvement in the transferred assets.

At September 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013, we had letters of credit and surety bonds outstanding totaling $316.6 million and $310.5 million, respectively, which primarily guarantee the payment of insurance claims.

Total losses represent fair value adjustments for all vehicles held for sale throughout the period for which fair value was less than carrying value.

Revenue earning equipment held for sale is stated at the lower of carrying amount or fair value less costs to sell. Only certain vehicles held for sale have carrying amounts greater than the fair value and losses are recorded at the time they arrive at our used truck centers. We typically record gains on the remaining vehicles with carrying amounts greater than fair value at the time they are sold. Losses to reflect changes in fair value are presented within “Other operating expenses” in the Consolidated Condensed Statements of Earnings. For revenue earning equipment held for sale, we stratify our fleet by vehicle type (trucks, tractors and trailers), weight class, age and other relevant characteristics and create classes of similar assets for analysis purposes. Fair value was determined based upon recent market prices obtained from our own sales experience for sales of each class of similar assets and vehicle condition. Therefore, our revenue earning equipment held for sale was classified within Level 3 of the fair value hierarchy.

Fair value of total debt (excluding capital lease obligations) at September 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013 was approximately $4.60 billion and $4.28 billion, respectively. For publicly-traded debt, estimates of fair value were based on market prices. Since our publicly-traded debt is not actively traded, the fair value measurement was classified within Level 2 of the fair value hierarchy. For other debt, fair value was estimated based on a model-driven approach using rates currently available to us for debt with similar terms and remaining maturities. Therefore, the fair value measurement of our other debt was classified within Level 2 of the fair value hierarchy. The carrying amounts reported in the Consolidated Condensed Balance Sheets for “Cash and cash equivalents,” “Receivables, net” and “Accounts payable” approximate fair value because of the immediate or short-term maturities of these financial instruments.

(K) DERIVATIVES

We have interest rate swaps outstanding which are designated as fair value hedges whereby we receive fixed interest rate payments in exchange for making variable interest rate payments. The differential to be paid or received is accrued and recognized as interest expense.

Changes in the fair value of our interest rate swaps are offset by changes in the fair value of the debt instrument. Accordingly, there is no ineffectiveness related to the interest rate swaps.

The derivatives are pay-variable, receive-fixed interest rate swaps based on the LIBOR rate and are designated as fair value hedges. Fair value was based on a model-driven income approach using the LIBOR rate at each interest payment date, which was observable at commonly quoted intervals for the full term of the swaps. Therefore, our interest rate swaps were classified within Level 2 of the fair value hierarchy. The location and fair value amounts of the interest rate swaps reported on the Consolidated Condensed Balance Sheets were as follows:

(L) SHARE REPURCHASE PROGRAMS

In December 2013, our Board of Directors authorized a share repurchase program intended to mitigate the dilutive impact of shares issued under our various employee stock, stock option and employee stock purchase plans. Under the December 2013 program, management is authorized to repurchase shares of common stock in an amount not to exceed the number of shares issued to employees under the Company’s various employee stock, stock option and employee stock purchase plans from December 1, 2013 through December 31, 2015. The December 2013 program limits aggregate share repurchases to no more than 2 million shares of Ryder common stock. Share repurchases of common stock are made periodically in open-market transactions and are subject to market conditions, legal requirements and other factors. Management established prearranged written plans for the Company under Rule 10b5-1 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 as part of the December 2013 program, which allow for share repurchases during Ryder’s quarterly blackout periods as set forth in the trading plan. For the three months ended September 30, 2014, we repurchased and retired 143,051 shares under the program at an aggregate cost of $12.9 million. For the nine months ended September 30, 2014, we repurchased and retired 1,170,123 shares under the program at an aggregate cost of $92.3 million. We did not repurchase any shares under this program in 2013.

During the nine months ended September 30, 2014, we contributed $69.5 million to our pension plans. All of the contributions to the U.S. plan for 2014 were made as of September 30, 2014. In 2014, we expect total contributions to our pension plans to be approximately $75 million.

During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014 and 2013, we recorded estimated pension settlement charges of $1.3 million ($0.8 million after tax) and $1.3 million ($0.8 million after tax), respectively, for the exit of two U.S. multi-employer pension plans withdrawal liabilities in 2014 and one plan in 2013. These charges were recorded within “Selling, general, and administrative expenses” in our Consolidated Condensed Statement of Earnings and is included in the Union-administered plans expense.

Pension Subsequent Event

We have recently taken steps to reduce the size and potential future volatility of our U.S. defined benefit pension plan obligation.  In October 2014, we offered approximately 11,000 former employees a one-time option to receive a lump sum distribution of their benefits by the end of 2014. These employees have deferred vested benefits of approximately $370 million representing 20% of our U.S. pension plan obligations. No additional funding of the pension plan is required for this transaction as all distributions will be made out of existing plan assets. The Plan's funded status is expected to remain materially unchanged as a result of this offer. We also expect to record a one-time lump sum pension charge in the fourth quarter as a result of the partial settlement of our pension plan liability. The amount of the settlement charge will be based on the proportionate amount of unrecognized U.S. actuarial net losses equal to the settled percentage of our pension benefit obligation. The ultimate amount of the charge will depend on the acceptance rate of the offer. As of September 30, 2014, the U.S. unrecognized actuarial loss was approximately $600 million before tax.

During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2013, we recognized a benefit of $0.6 million from the recovery of Superstorm Sandy losses. The 2013 benefit was recorded within “Cost of services” in our Consolidated Condensed Statement of Earnings. During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2013, we also refined previous estimates of employee severance and benefit costs which resulted in a benefit of $0.3 million. During the nine months ended September 30, 2013, we recognized a benefit of $1.9 million (before and after tax) from the recognition of the accumulated currency translation adjustment from a FMS foreign operation which has substantially liquidated its net assets. This benefit was recorded within “Miscellaneous income, net” in our Consolidated Condensed Statements of Earnings.

(R) SEGMENT REPORTING

Our operating segments are aggregated into reportable business segments based upon similar economic characteristics, products, services, customers and delivery methods. We operate in two reportable business segments: (1) FMS, which provides full service leasing, contract maintenance, contract-related maintenance and commercial rental of trucks, tractors and trailers to customers, principally in the U.S., Canada and the U.K.; and (2) SCS, which provides comprehensive supply chain management solutions including distribution and transportation services in North America and Asia. The SCS segment also provides dedicated services, which includes vehicles and drivers as part of a dedicated transportation solution in the U.S.

Our primary measurement of segment financial performance, defined as “Earnings Before Tax” (EBT) from continuing operations, includes an allocation of Central Support Services (CSS) and excludes non-operating pension costs, restructuring and other charges, net and the items discussed in Note (O), “Other Items Impacting Comparability.” CSS represents those costs incurred to support all business segments, including human resources, finance, corporate services, public affairs, information technology, health and safety, legal, marketing and corporate communications. The objective of the EBT measurement is to provide clarity on the profitability of each business segment and, ultimately, to hold leadership of each business segment and each operating segment within each business segment accountable for their allocated share of CSS costs. Certain costs are considered to be overhead not attributable to any segment and remain unallocated in CSS. Included among the unallocated overhead remaining within CSS are the costs for investor relations, public affairs and certain executive compensation.

Our FMS segment leases revenue earning equipment and provides fuel, maintenance and other ancillary services to the SCS segment. Inter-segment revenue and EBT are accounted for at rates similar to those executed with third parties. EBT related to inter-segment equipment and services billed to customers (equipment contribution) are included in both FMS and SCS and then eliminated (presented as “Eliminations”).
