15:28 EDTGBXGreenbrier says prepared for tank-car retrofits required by DoT
The Greenbrier Companies responded to the U.S. Department of Transportation's proposed rulemaking on the safe movement of flammable liquids by rail, including crude oil and ethanol. While Greenbrier is examining the details of the proposed rulemaking and will provide full comments at a later date, Jack Isselmann, VP External Affairs and Communications today made the following statement: "Greenbrier is pleased that Secretary Foxx recognizes the urgency of completing this rulemaking and we commend his stated intention to issue a rule in the next 60 days. A final rule will provide the clarity the industry needs to make investments that ensure that crude oil and other flammable commodities are classified properly and transported in tank cars that are safer at any speed. We are also gratified that two of the three alternate new design standards proposed by the Department call for a 9/16-inch thick steel shell, a safety feature that Greenbrier has consistently championed with our next generation 'Tank Car of the Future' design. This design can better withstand the additional demands associated with operating unit trains like the high-hazard flammable trains identified today by the Department. A two-year timetable for phasing out the use of older DOT-111 cars in the most hazardous flammable service is aggressive, but can be achieved through a combination of increased new tank car production and appropriate retrofit packages for tank cars that meet a more robust safety standard. Greenbrier is prepared to meet the need for tank car retrofits with our newly-launched joint venture for railcar repair and retrofitting, GBW Railcar Services."

06:12 EDTGBXGreenbrier announces order from Saudi Railway Company for 1,200 railcars
Greenbrier announced that it received an order in Q4 from the government-owned Saudi Railway Company, or SAR, for approximately 1,200 railroad tank cars. Three types of tank cars will support industrial mining operations - led by the national mining company, Ma'aden - at Wa'ad al Shamal Industrial City in the Sirhan-Turaif region of northern Saudi Arabia. The tank cars will facilitate rail transportation of molten sulfur and phosphoric acid, products that are used in a range of industrial activities. Greenbrier will build the tank cars for SAR under U.S. supervision and management at its wholly-owned Wagony Swidnica subsidiary in Swidnica, Poland. Track dimensions in Saudi Arabia are identical to those in the United States, and the tank cars will be built to U.S. standards on production lines certified by the Association of American Railroads. Delivery of the first tank cars to SAR will begin in the second half of calendar year 2016, and will be completed in 2017 and 2018, depending on car type.

06:09 EDTGBXGreenbrier expects to exceed FY15 EPS view of $5.70-$5.85, consensus $5.79
Greenbrier announced that it expects to exceed previously provided diluted EPS guidance of $5.70-$5.85, excluding non-recurring costs in Q3 of 16c per share, for FY15. These higher expectations are principally driven by increased margins in the company's manufacturing segment, which includes lease syndications and a lower than anticipated tax rate related to geographic mix of earnings.
