NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED CONDENSED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(unaudited)


1. 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 2015 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 presentation 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.

Beginning in 2016, we reclassified the losses from fair value adjustments on our used vehicles from "Other operating expenses" to "Gains on used vehicles, net" within the Consolidated Condensed Statement of Earnings. Prior year amounts have been reclassified to conform to the current period presentation. These reclassifications were immaterial to the financial statements taken as a whole as shown in Note 3, "Revenue Earning Equipment."

Revision of Prior Period Financial Statements

We periodically enter 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 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. For the quarter ended March 31, 2015, the revision primarily affected the presentation of our Consolidated Condensed Statement of Cash Flows. The effects of this revision on the individual line items within our Consolidated Condensed Statement of Cash Flows for the three months ended March 31, 2015 were as follows (in millions):

2. RECENT ACCOUNTING PRONOUNCEMENTS

Share-based Payments

On March 30, 2016, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) issued Accounting Standards Update (ASU) No. 2016-09, Stock Compensation, which is intended to simplify several aspects of the accounting for share-based payment award transactions. The guidance will be effective January 1, 2017. We are in the process of evaluating the impacts of the adoption of this standard.

Leases

On February 25, 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-02, Leases, which sets out the principles for the recognition, measurement, presentation and disclosure of leases for both parties to a contract (i.e. lessees and lessors). The standard requires lessees to apply a dual approach, classifying leases as either finance or operating leases. This classification will determine whether the lease expense is recognized based on an effective interest method or on a straight-line basis over the term of the lease. A lessee is also required to record a right-of-use asset and a lease liability for all leases with a term of greater than 12 months regardless of their classification. Leases with a term of 12 months or less will be accounted for similar to existing guidance for operating leases. The new standard requires lessors to account for leases using an approach that is substantially equivalent to existing guidance for sales-type leases, direct financing leases and operating leases. The standard is effective January 1, 2019, with early adoption permitted. The standard is to be applied using a modified retrospective transition method. We are in the process of determining the effect on our consolidated financial position, results of operations and 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 is effective January 1, 2018, and will replace most existing revenue recognition guidance. On March 17, 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-08, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606): Principal versus Agent Considerations, which clarifies the implementation guidance on principal versus agent considerations contained in ASU 2014-09. Additionally, on April 14, 2016, FASB issued ASU No. 2016-10, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606): Identifying Performance Obligations and Licensing, which clarifies the implementation guidance on identifying performance obligations. The standard permits the use of either the modified retrospective or cumulative effect transition methods.

In connection with the FASB’s recently issued guidance on leases, the standard requires the lease component of our full service lease product line to be accounted for under the lease accounting guidance and the maintenance and other elements of the product line to be accounted for under the new revenue guidance. Because of the interrelationship of these standards on our full service lease product line, we have not yet selected a transition method. We are in the process of determining the effect on our consolidated financial position, results of operations and cash flows.

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. We adopted this guidance on January 1, 2016 and reclassified $15 million from other assets to long-term debt in our December 31, 2015 balance sheet. Other than the change in presentation within the Consolidated Condensed Balance Sheets, this accounting guidance did not impact our consolidated financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

Revenue earning equipment, net includes vehicles acquired under capital leases of $46.3 million, less accumulated depreciation of $22.7 million, at March 31, 2016, and $47.5 million, less accumulated depreciation of $22.2 million, at December 31, 2015.

At the end of 2015, 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, 2016.

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 March 31, 2016 and December 31, 2015, the net investment in direct financing and sales-type leases was $444.5 million and $437.8 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 March 31, 2016 and December 31, 2015, 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.

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 “Gains on used vehicles, net ” 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. For a certain population of our revenue earning equipment held for sale, 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, these vehicles held for sale were classified within Level 3 of the fair value hierarchy.

The notional amount of executed interest rate swaps designated as fair value hedges was $825 million at March 31, 2016 and December 31, 2015.


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 March 31, 2016). 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 March 31, 2016 was 214%. At March 31, 2016, there was $488.9 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. 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 certain long-term debt on a long-term basis. At March 31, 2016, we classified $637.8 million of short-term commercial paper and $300.0 million of current debt obligations as long-term. At December 31, 2015, we classified $547.1 million of short-term commercial paper and $300.0 million of current debt obligations as long-term.

In February 2016, we issued $300 million of unsecured medium-term notes maturing in November 2021. 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 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 which causes early termination, the 364-day program will expire on October 21, 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. Sales of receivables under this program are accounted for as secured borrowings based on our continuing involvement in the transferred assets. No amounts were outstanding under the program at March 31, 2016 or December 31, 2015.

At March 31, 2016 and December 31, 2015, we had letters of credit and surety bonds outstanding totaling $341.0 million and $345.7 million, respectively, which primarily guarantee the payment of insurance claims.

The fair value of total debt (excluding capital lease and asset-backed U.S. obligations) at March 31, 2016 and December 31, 2015 was approximately $5.20 billion and $5.06 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.

6. DERIVATIVES

From time to time, we enter into interest rate derivatives to manage our fixed and variable interest rate exposure and to better match the repricing of debt instruments to that of our portfolio of assets. We assess the risk that changes in interest rates will have either on the fair value of debt obligations or on the amount of future interest payments by monitoring changes in interest rate exposures and by evaluating hedging opportunities. We regularly monitor interest rate risk attributable to both our outstanding or forecasted debt obligations as well as our offsetting hedge positions. This risk management process involves the use of analytical techniques, including cash flow sensitivity analysis, to estimate the expected impact of changes in interest rates on our future cash flows.
 
As of March 31, 2016, we had interest rate swaps outstanding which are designated as fair value hedges of certain of our debt obligations, with a total notional value of $825 million and maturities through 2020. Interest rate swaps are measured at fair value on a recurring basis using Level 2 fair value inputs. The fair value of these interest rate swaps was approximately $18.1 million as of March 31, 2016, and was presented in "Direct financing leases and other assets" in our Consolidated Condensed Balance Sheets. Changes in the fair value of our interest rate swaps were offset by changes in the fair value of the hedged debt instruments. Accordingly, there was no ineffectiveness related to the interest rate swaps.
 


7. SHARE REPURCHASE PROGRAMS

In December 2015, our Board of Directors authorized a share repurchase program intended to mitigate the dilutive impact of shares issued under our employee stock plans (the December 2015 program).  Under the December 2015 program, management is authorized to repurchase (i) up to 1.5 million shares of common stock, the sum of which will not exceed the number of shares issued to employees under the Company’s employee stock plans from December 1, 2015 to December 9, 2017  plus (ii) 0.5 million shares issued to employees that were not repurchased under the Company’s previous share repurchase program.  The December 2015 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 may establish prearranged written plans for the Company under Rule 10b5-1 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 as part of the December 2015 program, which allow for share repurchases during Ryder’s quarterly blackout periods as set forth in the trading plan. 

We did not repurchase any shares under the December 2015 program during the three months ended March 31, 2016. During the three months ended March 31, 2015, we repurchased 69,000 shares under the previous program for $6.1 million.

The gain from currency translation adjustments in the three months ended March 31, 2016 of $13.7 million was primarily due to the strengthening of the Canadian Dollar against the U.S. Dollar, partially offset by the weakening of the British Pound against the U.S. Dollar. The loss from currency translation adjustments in the three months ended March 31, 2015 of $57.4 million was due primarily to the weakening of the Canadian Dollar and British Pound against the U.S. Dollar.

10. 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 and principally include at-the-money stock option, unvested stock and cash awards. Unvested 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 unvested 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.

The following table provides information on share-based compensation expense and income tax benefits recognized during the periods:

During the three months ended March 31, 2016 and 2015, approximately 513,000 and 358,000 stock options, respectively, were granted under the Plans. These awards generally vest evenly over a three year period beginning on the date of grant. The stock options have contractual terms of ten years. The fair value of each option award at the date of grant was estimated using a Black-Scholes-Merton option-pricing valuation model. Share-based compensation expense is recognized on a straight-line basis over the vesting period. The weighted-average fair value per option granted during the three months ended March 31, 2016 and 2015 was $12.53 and $18.46, respectively.

During the three months ended March 31, 2016 and 2015, approximately 34,000 and 19,000 market-based restricted stock rights were granted, respectively, under the Plans. The awards are segmented into three performance periods of one, two and three years. At the end of each performance period, up to 125% of the award may be earned based on Ryder's total shareholder return (TSR) compared to the target TSR of a peer group over the applicable performance period. If earned, employees will receive the grant of stock at the end of the relevant three year performance period provided they continue to be employed with Ryder, subject to Compensation Committee approval. The fair value of the market-based restricted stock rights was estimated using a lattice-based option-pricing valuation model that incorporates a Monte-Carlo simulation. The fair value of the market-based awards was determined on the grant date and considers the likelihood of Ryder achieving the market-based condition. Share-based compensation expense is recognized on a straight-line basis over the vesting period. The weighted-average fair value per market-based restricted stock right granted during three months ended March 31, 2016 and 2015 was $54.10 and $89.40, respectively.

During the three months ended March 31, 2016 and 2015, approximately 58,000 and 35,000 performance-based restricted stock rights (PBRSRs), respectively, were awarded under the Plans. The awards are segmented into three one-year performance periods. For these awards, up to 125% of the awards may be earned based on Ryder's one-year adjusted return on capital (ROC) measured against an annual ROC target. If earned, employees will receive the grant of stock three years after the grant date, provided they continue to be employed with Ryder, subject to Compensation Committee approval. For accounting purposes, these awards are not considered granted until the Compensation Committee approves the annual ROC target. During the three months ended March 31, 2016 and 2015, approximately 45,000 and 42,000 PBRSRs, respectively, were considered granted for accounting purposes. The fair value of the PBRSRs is determined and fixed on the grant date based on Ryder's stock price on the date of grant. Share-based compensation expense is recognized on a straight-line basis over the vesting period, based upon the probability that the performance target will be met. The weighted-average fair value per PBRSR granted during the three months ended March 31, 2016 and 2015 was $55.32 and $93.51, respectively.

During the three months ended March 31, 2016 and 2015, approximately 111,000 and 68,000 time-vested restricted stock rights, respectively, were granted under the Plans. The time-vested restricted stock rights entitle the holder to shares of common stock when the awards generally vest at the end of the three-year period after the grant date. The fair value of the time-vested awards is determined and fixed on the date of grant based on Ryder’s stock price on the date of grant. Share-based compensation expense is recognized on a straight-line basis over the vesting period. The weighted-average fair value per time-vested restricted stock right granted during the three months ended March 31, 2016 and 2015 was $55.32 and $93.50, respectively.

During the three months ended March 31, 2016 and 2015, employees received market-based cash awards. The cash awards have the same vesting provisions as the market-based restricted stock rights. The cash awards are accounted for as liability awards under the share-based compensation accounting guidance as the awards are based upon the performance of our common stock and are settled in cash. As a result, the liability is adjusted to reflect fair value at the end of each reporting period. The fair value of the cash awards was estimated using a lattice-based option-pricing valuation model that incorporates a Monte-Carlo simulation. Share-based compensation expense is recognized on a straight-line basis over the vesting period.

The following table is a summary of compensation expense recognized for market-based cash awards in addition to the share-based compensation expense reported in the previous table:

12. OTHER ITEMS IMPACTING COMPARABILITY
Our primary measure of segment performance excludes certain items we do not believe are representative of the ongoing operations of the segment. We believe that excluding these items from our segment measure of performance allows for better comparison of results. During the three months ended March 31, 2015, we incurred charges of $1.8 million related to professional fees associated with cost savings initiatives, which are included in "Selling, general and administrative expenses" in our Condensed Consolidated Statement of Earnings.


13. OTHER MATTERS

We are a party to various claims, complaints and proceedings arising in the ordinary course of our continuing business operations including but not limited to those relating to commercial and employment claims, environmental matters, risk management matters (e.g., vehicle liability, workers’ compensation, etc.) and administrative assessments primarily associated with operating taxes. We have established loss provisions for matters in which losses are probable and can be reasonably estimated. For matters from continuing operations, we believe that the resolution of these claims, complaints and legal proceedings will not have a material effect on our consolidated financial statements.

Our estimates regarding potential losses and materiality are based on our judgment and assessment of the claims utilizing currently available information. Although we will continue to reassess our reserves and estimates based on future developments, our objective assessment of the legal merits of such claims may not always be predictive of the outcome and actual results may vary from our current estimates.

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. Other than with respect to the matters discussed below, we believe that such losses will not have a material effect on our consolidated financial statements.

In Brazil, we were assessed $5 million in prior years for various federal income taxes and social contribution taxes for the 1997 and 1998 tax years. These federal tax assessments were overturned 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 amount of any potential loss.

15. SEGMENT REPORTING

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, professional fees and other items discussed in Note 12, "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 segment and, ultimately, to hold leadership of each segment accountable for their allocated share of CSS costs. Certain costs are not attributable to any segment and remain unallocated in CSS, including costs for investor relations, public affairs and certain executive compensation.

Our Fleet Management Solutions (FMS) segment leases revenue earning equipment and provides fuel, maintenance and other ancillary services to the Dedicated Transportation Solutions (DTS) and Supply Chain Solutions (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 segment which served the customer and then eliminated (presented as “Eliminations”). 

The following tables set forth financial information for each of our segments and provide a reconciliation between segment EBT and earnings from continuing operations before income taxes for the three months ended March 31, 2016 and 2015. Segment results are not necessarily indicative of the results of operations that would have occurred had each segment been an independent, stand-alone entity during the periods presented.

ITEM 2. MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION
AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS



OVERVIEW

The following discussion should be read in conjunction with the unaudited Consolidated Condensed Financial Statements and notes thereto included under Item 1. In addition, reference should be made to our audited Consolidated Financial Statements and notes thereto and related Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations included in the 2015 Annual Report on Form 10-K.

Ryder System, Inc. (Ryder) is a global leader in transportation and supply chain management solutions. We report our financial performance based on three segments: (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 transportation services provided as part of an integrated, multi-service, supply chain solution to SCS customers are reported in the SCS business segment.

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. The related leasebacks were historically treated as off-balance sheet operating leases and were included in our reported leverage ratios. During the second quarter of 2015, we reviewed and evaluated the structure of the leasebacks and determined that they did not qualify for deconsolidation. The prior year amounts, which were not material, have been revised to conform to the current period presentation. Refer to Note 1, "General," in the Notes to Consolidated Condensed Financial Statements for further discussion of the revision to our historical financial statements.

We operate in highly competitive markets. Our customers select us based on numerous factors including service quality, price, technology and service offerings. As an alternative to using our services, customers may choose to provide these services for themselves, or may choose to obtain similar or alternative services from other third-party vendors. Our customer base includes enterprises operating in a variety of industries including automotive, industrial, food and beverage service, consumer packaged goods (CPG), transportation and warehousing, technology and healthcare, retail, housing, business and personal services, and paper and publishing.

We use operating revenue, a non-GAAP financial measure, to evaluate the operating performance of our core businesses and as a measure of sales activity. FMS fuel services revenue and DTS and SCS fuel are ancillary services that we provide our customers and are impacted by fluctuations in market fuel prices.  Therefore, these items are excluded from operating revenue as the costs are largely a pass-through to our customers, resulting in minimal changes in our profitability during periods of steady market fuel prices. However, profitability may be positively or negatively impacted by rapid changes in market fuel prices during a short period of time as customer pricing for fuel services is established based on trailing market fuel costs. We also exclude subcontracted transportation from the calculation of operating revenue as this service is also typically a pass-through to our customers and therefore fluctuations result in minimal changes to our profitability.  Refer to the“Non-GAAP Financial Measures” section for a reconciliation of total revenue to operating revenue.
(2)
Non-GAAP financial measure. We believe comparable EBT, comparable earnings and comparable earnings per diluted common share, all from continuing operations, provide useful information to investors because they exclude non-operating pension costs, which we consider to be those impacted by financial market performance and outside the operational performance of the business, and other significant items that are unrelated to our ongoing business operations. Refer to the “Non-GAAP Financial Measures” section for a reconciliation of EBT, net earnings and earnings per diluted common share to the comparable measures.

Total revenue increased 4% to $1.63 billion and operating revenue increased 8% to $1.41 billion for the three months ended March 31, 2016. Total revenue increased due to higher operating revenue, partially offset by lower fuel costs largely passed through to customers. The increase in operating revenue was driven by growth in all segments partially offset by a 100 basis point negative impact from foreign exchange in the three months ended March 31, 2016. FMS operating revenue growth was due to growth in the full service lease fleet and higher prices on replacement vehicles. DTS and SCS operating revenue growth was due to new business, increased volumes and higher pricing. EBT increased 5% in the first quarter of 2016 to $88.7 million, reflecting increased pricing, new business and higher volumes in DTS and SCS and higher full service lease performance in FMS, partially offset by lower used vehicle results, higher maintenance costs and increased insurance costs. The strong EBT performance in the three months ended March 31, 2016 was partially offset by a 100 basis point negative impact of foreign exchange.

Lease and rental revenues represent full service lease and commercial rental product offerings within our FMS segment. Revenues increased 5% in the first quarter of 2016 primarily driven by a 5% larger average full service lease fleet and higher prices on replacement vehicles. Foreign exchange negatively impacted revenue growth by 100 basis points.

Cost of lease and rental represents the direct costs related to lease and rental revenues. These costs consist of depreciation of revenue earning equipment, maintenance costs (primarily repair parts and labor), and other costs such as licenses, insurance and operating taxes. Cost of lease and rental excludes interest costs from vehicle financing. Cost of lease and rental increased 7% in the first quarter of 2016 due to higher depreciation and maintenance costs from a larger average lease fleet and a 2% larger average rental fleet. The increase was also driven by increased insurance costs due to unfavorable self-insurance developments from prior years. Cost of lease and rental benefited by approximately $9 million in the first quarter of 2016 due to changes in estimated residual values and useful lives of revenue earning equipment effective January 1, 2016. For the first quarter, foreign exchange also reduced cost of lease and rental by 100 basis points.

Lease and rental gross margin increased 2% in the first quarter of 2016 to $215.3 million. Lease and rental gross margin as a percentage of revenue decreased to 28% in the first quarter of 2016. The increase in gross margin dollars was due to lease fleet growth as well as benefits from improved residual values, partially offset by increased insurance costs. The decrease in gross margin as a percentage of revenue reflects increased insurance costs and lower commercial rental fleet utilization, partially offset by benefits from improved residual values.

Services revenue represents all the revenues associated with our DTS and SCS segments as well as contract maintenance, contract-related maintenance and fleet support services associated with our FMS segment. Services revenue in the first quarter of 2016 increased due to new business, higher volumes and increased pricing in the SCS and DTS segments. The contract-related maintenance and contract maintenance product lines benefited from growth in fleet size, and contract-related maintenance revenue also increased from higher volumes. These increases were partially offset by lower fuel prices passed through to our DTS and SCS customers. Foreign exchange also negatively impacted revenue growth by 200 basis points.

ITEM 2. MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION
AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS - (Continued)


Cost of services represents the direct costs related to services revenue and is primarily comprised of salaries and employee-related costs, subcontracted transportation (purchased transportation from third parties) and maintenance costs. Cost of services increased 8% in the first quarter of 2016 due to higher volumes, partially offset by lower fuel costs and lower insurance costs. For the three months ended March 31, 2016, foreign exchange reduced cost of services by 100 basis points.

Services gross margin increased 14% to $127.4 million and as a percentage of revenue to 17%. The increase in gross margin dollars and gross margin as a percentage of revenue reflects higher pricing in our DTS and SCS segments. Gross margin dollars also benefited from new business and higher volumes in our SCS and DTS segments, growth in full service lease fleet size and higher volumes in the contract-related business and growth in the contract maintenance fleet.

Fuel services revenue represents fuel services provided to our FMS customers. Fuel services revenue decreased 29% in the first quarter of 2016 to $102.8 million due to lower fuel prices passed through to customers.

Cost of fuel services includes the direct costs associated with providing our customers with fuel. These costs include fuel, salaries and employee-related costs of fuel island attendants and depreciation of our fueling facilities and equipment. Cost of fuel services decreased 27% in the first quarter of 2016 as a result of lower fuel prices.

Fuel services gross margin decreased 52% to $3.9 million and fuel services gross margin as a percentage of revenue decreased to 4% in the first quarter of 2016. Fuel is largely a pass-through to customers for which we realize minimal changes in margin during periods of steady market fuel prices. However, fuel services margin is impacted by sudden increases or decreases in market fuel prices during a short period of time as customer pricing for fuel is established based on trailing market fuel costs. Fuel services gross margin was favorably impacted by rapid decreases in the market fuel prices during the first quarter of 2015.

SG&A expenses increased 2% in the first quarter of 2016 primarily due to higher information technology costs and increased pension expenses, partially offset by lower professional fees, compensation-related expenses and foreign exchange. Foreign exchange reduced the growth in SG&A expenses by 100 basis points. Pension expense, which primarily impacts SG&A expenses, increased $2.3 million in the first quarter of 2016 due to a lower asset return assumption. SG&A expenses as a percent of total and operating revenue remained relatively flat.

Gains on used vehicles, net includes gains from sales of used vehicles as well as the costs associated with used vehicles such as write-downs of vehicles to fair market values and facilities costs. Gains on used vehicles, net decreased 30% in the first quarter of 2016 due to higher fair market value write-downs and lower gains on the sale of used vehicles. Write-downs increased $4.9 million in the first quarter of 2016 compared to the prior year due to an increase in the used vehicle inventory and lower tractor pricing. Global average proceeds per unit were slightly lower than the prior year reflecting an 8% decrease in tractor proceeds per unit, largely offset by a 6% increase in truck proceeds per unit.

Interest expense increased 3% to $38 million in the first quarter of 2016 reflecting higher average outstanding debt, partially offset by a lower effective interest rate. The increase in average outstanding debt reflects planned higher vehicle capital spending. The lower effective interest rate in 2016 reflects the replacement of higher interest rate debt with debt issuances at lower rates.

As part of management’s evaluation of segment operating performance, we define the primary measurement of our segment financial performance as “Earnings Before Taxes” (EBT) from continuing operations, which 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 12, "Other Items Impacting Comparability," in the Notes to Consolidated Condensed Financial Statements. CSS represents those costs incurred to support all segments, including human resources, finance, corporate services and 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 segment and, ultimately, to hold leadership of each segment accountable for their allocated share of CSS costs. Segment results are not necessarily indicative of the results of operations that would have occurred had each segment been an independent, stand-alone entity during the periods presented. Certain costs are not attributable to any segment and remain unallocated in CSS, including costs for investor relations, public affairs and certain executive compensation.

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 FMS, DTS and SCS and then eliminated (presented as “Eliminations” in the table above). Prior year amounts have been revised to conform to the current period presentation.

We use operating revenue, which excludes fuel services revenue, and segment EBT as a percent of operating revenue, non-GAAP financial measures, to evaluate the operating performance of our FMS segment and as a measure of sales activity. FMS fuel services revenue is an ancillary service that we provide our customers and is impacted by fluctuations in market fuel prices. Therefore, this item is excluded from operating revenue as the costs are largely a pass-through to our customers, resulting in minimal changes in our profitability during periods of steady market fuel prices. However, profitability may be positively or negatively impacted by rapid changes in market fuel prices during a short period of time as customer pricing for fuel services is established based on trailing market fuel costs.

Total revenue increased 1% in the first quarter of 2016 due to higher operating revenue, largely offset by a decline in fuel services revenue and negative impacts from foreign exchange. Fuel services revenue declined 28% in the three months ended March 31, 2016 due to lower fuel prices passed through to customers. Operating revenue (revenue excluding fuel) increased 7% in the first quarter of 2016 as a result of organic growth, primarily in the full service lease product line. Foreign exchange negatively impacted both total and operating revenue growth in the first quarter of 2016 by 100 basis points.

Full service lease revenue increased 8% in the first quarter of 2016 reflecting a 5% larger average fleet size and higher prices on replacement vehicles. Foreign exchange negatively impacted full service lease revenue growth by 100 basis points. We expect favorable full service lease revenue comparisons to continue through the end of the year based on strong sales activity. Contract-related maintenance revenue increased 21% reflecting favorable impacts from growth in the full service lease fleet and higher volumes. Contract maintenance revenue increased 9% reflecting a 13% larger average fleet size. Commercial rental revenue was unchanged in the first quarter of 2016. We expect unfavorable commercial rental revenue comparisons through the end of the year based on a projected weaker demand environment.

FMS EBT decreased 8% in the first quarter of 2016 to $82.9 million reflecting lower used vehicle results, increased insurance costs, lower fuel margin and lower commercial rental results, partially offset by higher full service lease results. Used vehicle results decreased due to higher write-downs and lower tractor pricing, partially offset by higher pricing on trucks compared to the prior year. Full service lease results benefited from growth in the average lease fleet size. Commercial rental results were lower due to a 300 basis point decline in the commercial rental fleet utilization. Full service lease and commercial rental results benefited from approximately $9 million of lower depreciation in the first quarter of 2016 due to residual value changes implemented January 1, 2016, partially offset by increased insurance costs due to unfavorable self-insurance developments from prior years. Fuel margins in the prior year benefited from the timing of fuel purchases in a period of rapidly declining fuel prices.
