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


(A) GENERAL

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 2014 Annual Report on Form 10-K and should be read in conjunction with the Consolidated Financial Statements and notes thereto. The year-end condensed balance sheet data was derived from audited financial statements, but does not include all disclosures required by U.S. GAAP. In the opinion of management, all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring accruals and items referenced under "Revision of Prior Period Financial Statements") 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.

During the first quarter of 2015, our management structure changed within the supply chain business. We created the role of President of Dedicated Transportation Solutions (DTS) for the dedicated product offering which was previously within Supply Chain Solutions (SCS). We are now reporting our financial performance as follows: (1) Fleet Management Solutions (FMS), which provides full service leasing, commercial rental, contract maintenance, and contract-related maintenance of trucks, tractors and trailers to customers principally in the U.S., Canada and the U.K.; (2) DTS, which provides vehicles and drivers as part of a dedicated transportation solution in the U.S.; and (3) SCS, which provides comprehensive supply chain solutions including distribution and transportation services in North America and Asia. Dedicated transportation services provided as part of an integrated, multi-service, supply chain solution to SCS customers are reported in the SCS business segment. Prior period amounts have been recast to conform to the new presentation. This change impacted Note (P), "Segment Reporting," with no impact on consolidated revenues, net income or cash flows.

Revision of Prior Period Financial Statements

The Company periodically enters into sale and leaseback transactions to lower the total cost of funding our operations and to diversify funding among different classes of investors and among different types of funding instruments. These transactions historically resulted in a reduction of revenue earning equipment and debt on the balance sheet, as proceeds from the sale of revenue earning equipment were used to repay debt. During the second quarter of 2015, we reviewed and evaluated the structure of these transactions and determined that they should be accounted for as issuances of financial interests that do not qualify for deconsolidation. We evaluated the materiality of this revision, quantitatively and qualitatively, and concluded it was not material to any of our previously issued consolidated financial statements. However, we elected to revise previously issued financial statements to avoid inconsistencies in our financial statements. Accordingly, we revised previously reported results for the years ended December 31, 2014, 2013 and 2012 as well as previously reported results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014, the three and six months ended June 30, 2014, and the three months ended March 31, 2015 and 2014 in our Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2015. The effects of this revision for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014, and as of December 31, 2014 are presented in the tables below. Adjustments may not be additive and may have minor differences within the tables due to rounding.

(B) RECENT ACCOUNTING PRONOUNCEMENTS

Accounting for Measurement Period Adjustments

On September 25, 2015, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) issued Accounting Standards Update (ASU) No. 2015-16, Business Combinations: Simplifying the Accounting for Measurement-Period Adjustments, which requires an acquirer to recognize adjustments identified during the measurement period in the reporting period in which the adjustment amounts are determined. The adjustment must include the cumulative effect of the adjustment as if the accounting had been completed on the acquisition date. The update should be applied prospectively and becomes effective January 1, 2016. Early application is permitted. The adoption of ASU 2015-16 will not have an impact on our consolidated financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

Inventory Valuation

On July 22, 2015, the FASB issued ASU No. 2015-11, Simplifying the Measurement of Inventory, which applies to inventory that is measured using first-in, first-out or average cost. Under the updated guidance, an entity should measure inventory that is within scope at the lower of cost and net realizable value, which is the estimated selling prices in the ordinary course of business, less reasonably predictable costs of completion, disposal and transportation. Subsequent measurement is unchanged for inventory that is measured using last-in, first-out. The update becomes effective January 1, 2017 and should be applied prospectively with early adoption permitted at the beginning of an interim or annual reporting period. We are in the process of determining the effect of the standard on our consolidated financial position and results of operations.

Presentation of Debt Issuance Costs
     
On April 7, 2015, the FASB issued ASU No. 2015-03, Simplifying the Presentation of Debt Issuance Costs, which requires an entity to present debt issuance costs as a direct reduction from the carrying amount of the related debt liability on the balance sheet. On August 30, 2015, the FASB issued ASU 2015-15, Presentation and Subsequent Measurement of Debt Issuance Costs Associated with Line-of-Credit Arrangements, which clarifies the treatment of debt issuance costs from line-of-credit arrangements after adoption of ASU 2015-03. The SEC Staff announced they would not object to an entity deferring and presenting debt issuance costs as an asset and subsequently amortizing the deferred debt issuance costs ratably over the term of the line-of-credit arrangement, regardless of whether there are any outstanding borrowings on the line-of-credit arrangement. The update requires retrospective application and represents a change in accounting principle. The update becomes effective January 1, 2016. Based on the balances as of September 30, 2015, we expect to reclassify $20.0 million of unamortized debt issuance costs from "Direct financing leases and other assets" to "Long-term debt."

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. The update was originally effective January 1, 2017. On August 12, 2015, the FASB issued ASU 2015-14, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606): Deferral of the Effective Date, which defers the effective date by one year to January 1, 2018. Early application is permitted but not before January 1, 2017. The standard permits the use of either the modified retrospective or cumulative effect transition methods. We have not yet selected a transition method. We are in the process of determining the effect of the standard on our consolidated financial position and results of operations.

(C) 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 but 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 grant date of the award until the date the shares underlying the award are delivered.

Revenue earning equipment, net includes vehicles acquired under capital leases of $47.5 million, less accumulated depreciation of $21.0 million, at September 30, 2015, and $47.8 million, less accumulated depreciation of $22.5 million, at December 31, 2014.

At the end of 2014, 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, 2015. The change in estimated residual values and useful lives increased pre-tax earnings for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015 by approximately $10.0 million and $30.0 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, 2015 and December 31, 2014, the net investment in direct financing and sales-type leases was $442.6 million and $417.0 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, 2015 and December 31, 2014, 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 as of September 30, 2015 and December 31, 2014.

Asset-backed U.S. obligations of $448.3 million at September 30, 2015 and $218.1 million at December 31, 2014 are related to financing transactions involving revenue earning equipment.

The notional amount of executed interest rate swaps designated as fair value hedges was $825 million at September 30, 2015 and $600 million at December 31, 2014.


We maintain a $1.2 billion 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, Lloyds Bank Plc, U.S. Bank National Association and Wells Fargo Bank, N.A. The facility matures in January 2020. The agreement provides for annual facility fees which range from 7.5 basis points to 25 basis points based on Ryder's long-term credit ratings. The annual facility fee is currently 10 basis points, which applies to the total facility size of $1.2 billion. The credit 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, 2015). At our option, the interest rate on borrowings under the credit facility is based on LIBOR, prime, federal funds or local equivalent rates. 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, 2015 was 215%. At September 30, 2015, there was $694.9 million available under the credit facility, net of outstanding commercial paper borrowings.

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, 2015, we classified $461.4 million of short-term commercial paper, $300.0 million of the current portion of long-term debt and $41 million of short-term borrowings under our global revolving credit facility as long-term debt. At December 31, 2014, we classified $276.7 million of short-term commercial

paper, $60.0 million of trade receivables borrowings and $698.5 million of the current portion of long-term debt as long-term debt.

In September and April 2015, we received $92.9 million and $156.4 million, respectively, from financing transactions backed by a portion of our revenue earning equipment. The proceeds from these transactions were used to fund capital expenditures. We have provided end of term guarantees for the residual value of the revenue earning equipment in these transactions. The transaction proceeds, along with the end of term residual value guarantees, have been included within "asset-backed U.S. obligations" in the preceding table.

In August 2015, we issued $300 million of unsecured medium-term notes maturing in September 2020. In May 2015, we issued $300 million of unsecured medium-term notes maturing in May 2020. In February 2015, we issued $400 million of unsecured medium-term notes maturing in March 2020. The proceeds from these notes were used to payoff maturing debt and for general corporate purposes. If these 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 committed purchaser. 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 during October 2015. We are currently in the process of renewing the program through October 2016. 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. No amounts were outstanding under the program at September 30, 2015. At December 31, 2014, $60.0 million was outstanding under the program. Sales of receivables under this program are accounted for as secured borrowings based on our continuing involvement in the transferred assets.

At September 30, 2015 and December 31, 2014, we had letters of credit and surety bonds outstanding totaling $339.3 million and $334.3 million, respectively, which primarily guarantee the payment of insurance claims.

(H) FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENTS

The assets and liabilities measured at fair value on a recurring basis consist primarily of interest rate swaps and investments held in Rabbi Trusts.  These amounts as of September 30, 2015 are not material to our consolidated financial position and operations and have not changed significantly from the amounts reported as of December 31, 2014.  

The following tables present our assets that are measured at fair value on a nonrecurring basis and considered a Level 3 fair value measurement:

(1)
Represents the portion of all revenue earning equipment held for sale that is recorded at fair value, less costs to sell.
(2)
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. Losses on vehicles held for sale for which carrying values exceeded fair value are recognized at the time they arrive at our used truck centers and 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 and asset-backed U.S. obligations) at September 30, 2015 and December 31, 2014 was approximately $5.35 billion and $4.59 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.


(I) 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. 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 fair value amounts of the interest rate swaps are reported in the Consolidated Condensed Balance Sheets within "Prepaid expenses and other current assets," "Direct financing leases and other assets," and "Other non-current liabilities." As of September 30, 2015, these amounts are not material to our consolidated financial position or results of operations and have not changed significantly from the amounts reported at December 31, 2014.

The amount of gains (losses) on interest rate swap agreements designated as fair value hedges and related hedged items are reported in the Consolidated Condensed Statements of Earnings within "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.


(J) 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 (collectively, the employee stock 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 under the employee stock plans from December 1, 2013 through December 10, 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. Early in the first quarter of 2015, due to the increase in leverage, we temporarily paused anti-dilutive share repurchase activity. For the nine months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014, we repurchased and retired 69,107 shares and 1,170,123 shares, respectively, under the program at an aggregate cost of $6.1 million and $92.3 million, respectively.

(P) SEGMENT REPORTING

Our operating segments are aggregated into reportable business segments based upon similar economic characteristics, products, services, customers and delivery methods. During the first quarter of 2015, our management structure changed within the supply chain business. We created the role of President of DTS for the dedicated product offering which previously was within SCS. We are now reporting our financial performance as follows: (1) FMS, which provides full service leasing, commercial rental, contract maintenance, and contract-related maintenance of trucks, tractors and trailers to customers principally in the U.S., Canada and the U.K.; (2) DTS, which provides vehicles and drivers as part of a dedicated transportation solution in the U.S.; and (3) SCS, which provides comprehensive supply chain solutions including distribution and transportation services in North America and Asia. Dedicated transportion services provided as part of an integrated, multi-service, supply chain solution to SCS customers are reported in the SCS business segment.

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 other items discussed in Note (M), "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 DTS and SCS segments. 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 the business segment which served the customer and then eliminated (presented as “Eliminations”).
