RYDER SYSTEM, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES
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) 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.


2. RECENT ACCOUNTING PRONOUNCEMENTS

Statement of Cash Flows

In August 2016, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) issued Accounting Standards Update (ASU) No. 2016-15, Statement of Cash Flows, which clarifies how companies present and classify certain cash receipts and cash payments in the statement of cash flows. The guidance will be effective January 1, 2018, with early adoption permitted. The standard is to be adopted on a retrospective basis. We do not expect this standard to have a material impact on the presentation of our consolidated cash flows.

Financial Instruments

In June 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-13, Financial Instruments - Credit Losses, which requires the measurement and recognition of expected credit losses for financial assets held at amortized cost. The standard applies to financial instruments including, but not limited to, trade and other receivables, held-to-maturity debt securities, loans and net investments in leases. The standard requires estimating expected credit losses over the remaining life of an instrument or a portfolio of instruments with similar risk characteristics based on relevant information about past events, current conditions and reasonable forecasts. The initial estimate of and the subsequent changes in expected credit losses will be recognized as credit loss expense through current earnings and will be reflected as an allowance for credit losses offsetting the carrying value of the financial instrument(s) on the balance sheet. The standard is effective January 1, 2020, with early adoption as of January 1, 2019 permitted. The standard is to be applied using a modified retrospective transition method. We do not expect this standard to have a material impact on our consolidated financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

Share-Based Payments

In March 2016, the FASB issued 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 do not expect this standard to have a material impact on our consolidated financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

(unaudited)



Leases

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-02, Leases, which sets out the principles for the recognition, measurement, presentation and disclosure of leases. 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 evaluating the impact on our consolidated financial position, results of operations and cash flows.

Revenue Recognition

In May 2014, the FASB issued ASU No. 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers, which together with related, subsequently issued guidance, 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. The standard permits the use of either the modified retrospective or cumulative effect transition methods. We are evaluating transition methods and the impact on our consolidated financial position and results of operations.

Presentation of Debt Issuance Costs

In April 2015, the FASB issued ASU No. 2015-03, Simplifying the Presentation of Debt Issuance Costs, which required an entity to present debt issuance costs as a direct reduction from the carrying amount of the related debt liability on the balance sheet. 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 $42.9 million, less accumulated depreciation of $21.6 million, at September 30, 2016, and $47.5 million, less accumulated depreciation of $22.2 million, at December 31, 2015.

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, 2016 and December 31, 2015, the net investment in direct financing and sales-type leases was $418 million and $438 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 prior to signing 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 which further mitigates our credit risk.

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED CONDENSED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS — (Continued)
(unaudited)


As of September 30, 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. These vehicles held for sale were classified within Level 3 of the fair value hierarchy.

The following table presents our assets held for sale that are measured at fair value on a nonrecurring basis and considered a Level 3 fair value measurement:

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, 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 September 30, 2016 was 206%. At September 30, 2016, there was $514.4 million available under the credit facility.

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 September 30, 2016, we classified $490.7 million of short-term commercial paper, $349.9 million of current debt obligations and $60.9 million of short-term borrowings under our global revolving credit facility as long-term. At December 31, 2015, we classified $547.1 million of short-term commercial paper, $300.0 million of current debt obligations and $25.3 million of short-term borrowings under our global revolving credit facility 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 pay off 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 holders can require us to repurchase all or a portion of the notes at a purchase price equal to 101% of principal value 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. The program was renewed in October 2016. If no event occurs which causes early termination, the 364-day program will expire on October 23, 2017. 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 September 30, 2016 or December 31, 2015.

At September 30, 2016 and December 31, 2015, we had letters of credit and surety bonds outstanding totaling $338.9 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 September 30, 2016 and December 31, 2015 was approximately $5.21 billion and $5.06 billion, respectively. For publicly-traded debt, estimates of fair value were based on market prices. 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. The fair value measurements of our publicly-traded debt and other debt were 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.

In February 2016, Ryder filed an automatic shelf registration statement on Form S-3 with the SEC. The registration is for an indeterminate number of securities and is effective for three years. Under this universal shelf registration statement, we have the capacity to offer and sell from time to time various types of securities, including common stock, preferred stock and debt securities, subject to market demand and ratings status.

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 any offsetting hedge positions. This risk management process involves the use of analytical techniques, including cash flow sensitivity analyses, to estimate the expected impact of changes in interest rates on our future cash flows.
 
As of September 30, 2016, we had interest rate swaps outstanding which are designated as fair value hedges for certain 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 $14.2 million and $5.4 million as of September 30, 2016 and December 31, 2015, respectively. The amounts are 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 program).  Under the 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 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 program, which allow for share repurchases during Ryder’s quarterly blackout periods as set forth in the trading plan. 

During the nine months ended September 30, 2016 and September 30, 2015, we repurchased 379,896 shares for $25.7 million and 69,107 shares for $6.1 million, respectively.

The loss from currency translation adjustments in the nine months ended September 30, 2016 of $37.9 million was primarily due to the weakening of the British Pound against the U.S. Dollar, partially offset by the strengthening of the Canadian Dollar against the U.S. Dollar. The loss from currency translation adjustments in the nine months ended September 30, 2015 of $73.1 million was due 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 options, 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 are not paid unless the stock 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 second quarter of 2016, we determined that certain pension benefit improvements made in 2009 had not been fully reflected in our projected benefit obligation. Because the amounts were not material to our consolidated financial statements in any individual period, and the cumulative amount is not material to 2016 results, we recognized a one-time, non-cash charge of $7.7 million in "Selling, general and administrative expenses" and a $12.8 million pre-tax increase to “Accumulated other comprehensive loss” in our second quarter 2016 consolidated condensed financial statements to correctly state the pension benefit obligation and account for these 2009 benefit improvements.

During the third quarter of 2015, we recorded adjustments of $0.5 million to previously recorded, estimated pension settlement charges related to the exit from U.S. multi-employer pension plans.

During the nine months ended September 30, 2016, we contributed $65.3 million to our pension plans. In 2016, the expected total contributions to our pension plans are approximately $80 million. We also maintain other postretirement benefit plans that are not reflected in the above table. The amount of postretirement benefit expense was not material for the three or nine months ended September 30, 2016.

12. 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 condensed 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 condensed financial statements.

In Brazil, various matters related to income taxes and social contribution taxes, as well as tax credits used to offset those taxes, were assessed by the Revenue Department for the 1997, 1998, 2004, 2005 and 2006 tax years. When available and appropriate, we have entered into various amnesty programs offered by the Brazilian tax authorities to settle some of these assessments at a discount and continue to evaluate these when offered.  Payments to resolve open matters through these amnesty programs were not material and were reflected as costs in discontinued operations.  Open matters, combined, total approximately $4 million in assessments, penalties and interest and are pending at various levels of the administrative tax courts.  We believe it is more likely than not that our position will ultimately be sustained either in these administrative courts or in actions before the judicial courts, if required.

14. SEGMENT REPORTING

Our primary measurement of segment financial performance, defined as segment “Earnings Before Tax” (EBT) from continuing operations, includes an allocation of Central Support Services (CSS) and excludes non-operating pension costs and certain professional fees associated with cost savings initiatives. Fleet Management Solutions (FMS) EBT, Dedicated Transportation Solutions (DTS) EBT and Supply Chain Solutions (SCS) EBT are our primary measures of segment performance. 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 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 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 and nine months ended September 30, 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.

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.

This Management’s Discussion and Analysis (MD&A) includes certain non-GAAP financial measures.  Please refer to the “Non-GAAP Financial Measures” section of this MD&A for information on the non-GAAP measures included in the MD&A, reconciliations to the most comparable GAAP financial measure and the reasons why we believe each measure is useful to investors.

Total revenue and operating revenue (a non-GAAP measure excluding fuel and subcontracted transportation) increased 3% in the third quarter of 2016. For the nine months ended September 30, 2016, total revenue increased 3% and operating revenue increased 5%. Total revenue and operating revenue growth in both periods was due to growth in the full service lease fleet and higher prices on replacement vehicles in FMS and new business, increased volumes and higher pricing in SCS and DTS. These increases were partially offset by lower demand in the commercial rental product line and negative impacts from foreign exchange. Increased total revenue was also partially offset by lower fuel costs passed through to customers.

EBT decreased 6% in both the third quarter of 2016 and nine months ended September 30, 2016, reflecting lower used vehicle and commercial rental results, partially offset by higher full service lease results in FMS, lower insurance costs in DTS and increased pricing, new business and increased volumes in DTS and SCS. The 2016 EBT decrease in the nine months ended September 30, 2016, also reflects a $7.7 million pension charge related to certain 2009 pension benefit improvements that were not fully reflected in our pension benefit obligation. EBT was negatively impacted by foreign exchange in the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016, by 100 basis points.

Lease and rental revenues represent full service lease and commercial rental product offerings within our FMS segment. Revenues were approximately $803 million in the third quarter of 2016, consistent with the third quarter of 2015. For 2016, higher full service lease revenue, driven by growth in the average full service lease fleet and higher prices on replacement vehicles, was offset by lower commercial rental revenue reflecting lower demand and a negative impact from foreign exchange. Revenues increased 3% in the nine months ended September 30, 2016, primarily driven by a larger average full service lease fleet and higher prices on replacement vehicles, partially offset by lower commercial rental revenue reflecting lower demand and a negative impact from foreign exchange. Foreign exchange negatively impacted revenue growth by 100 basis points in both periods.

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 1% in the third quarter and 4% in the nine months ended September 30, 2016, primarily due to higher depreciation and maintenance costs from a larger average lease fleet, partially offset by lower depreciation on a smaller average rental fleet (13% lower in the third quarter and 6% lower in the nine months ended September 30, 2016). Cost of lease and rental benefited by approximately $9 million in the third quarter of 2016 and $26 million in the nine months ended September 30, 2016, due to changes in estimated residual values effective
