04/27/2021

MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- C.H. Robinson Worldwide, Inc. (“C.H. Robinson”) (Nasdaq: CHRW) today reported financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2021.

First Quarter Key Metrics:

  • Total revenues increased 26.3 percent to $4.8 billion
  • Gross profits increased 23.7 percent to $697.7 million
  • Adjusted gross profits(1) increased 23.7 percent to $702.4 million
  • Income from operations increased 104.1 percent to $223.3 million
  • Adjusted operating margin(1) increased 1,250 basis points to 31.8 percent
  • Diluted earnings per share (EPS) increased 124.6 percent to $1.28
  • Cash flow from operations decreased $115.2 million to $56.7 million used by operations

(1) Adjusted gross profits and adjusted operating margin are Non-GAAP financial measures. The same factors described in this release that impacted these Non-GAAP measures also impacted the comparable GAAP measures. Refer to page 9 for further discussion and a GAAP to Non-GAAP reconciliation.

“We are proud of our first quarter results. As global shipping markets remain disrupted, our team around the globe stayed focused on serving the needs of our customers and delivering innovative solutions to keep global supply chains moving. During the quarter, we delivered strong financial results, while continuing to deliver against many of our initiatives related to growth, productivity and the advancement of our digital strategy,” said Bob Biesterfeld, Chief Executive Officer of C.H. Robinson. “We generated 125% growth in earnings per share due to profit growth in our two largest business segments, North American Surface Transportation ('NAST') and Global Forwarding. NAST's adjusted gross profit per business day increased 15% and operating income was up 39% compared to the first quarter of 2020. These results were driven by a 23% improvement in adjusted gross profit per load in our truckload business coupled with continued strong market share gains in our less than truckload business where volume per business day increased 17% year over year. Bolstering these results were continued benefits of our technology investments, which continue to unlock productivity gains and deliver customer value in new and exciting ways. Our Global Forwarding business delivered a 118% increase in total revenues, a 67% increase in adjusted gross profits and a 658% increase in operating income. The forwarding team successfully worked with customers across the globe to navigate a difficult and disrupted market, leading to increased award sizes with current customers and thousands of new commercial relationships.”

First Quarter Results Summary

  • Total revenues increased 26.3 percent to $4.8 billion, driven primarily by higher pricing and higher volume across most of our service lines.
  • Gross profits increased 23.7 percent to $697.7 million. Adjusted gross profits increased 23.7 percent to $702.4 million, primarily driven by higher pricing in our truckload, ocean and air service lines, higher volume in our ocean, less than truckload ("LTL") and air service lines and contributions from the acquisition of Prime Distribution Services ("Prime").
  • Operating expenses increased 4.5 percent to $479.1 million, due to higher personnel expenses. Personnel expenses increased 9.3 percent to $360.8 million, primarily due to higher incentive compensation costs. Average headcount decreased 2.9 percent, despite headcount additions from Prime that added approximately 1.0 percentage point. Selling, general and administrative (“SG&A”) expenses of $118.2 million decreased 7.9 percent, primarily due to lower travel expenses and credit losses.
  • Income from operations totaled $223.3 million, up 104.1 percent due to the increase in adjusted gross profits. Adjusted operating margin of 31.8 percent increased 1,250 basis points.
  • Interest and other expenses totaled $11.3 million, consisting primarily of $12.2 million of interest expense, which decreased $0.4 million versus last year due to a lower average debt balance and a lower average interest rate. The first quarter also included a $2.9 million unfavorable impact from foreign currency revaluation.
  • The effective tax rate in the quarter was 18.3 percent compared to 17.1 percent in the first quarter last year. The rate increase was primarily due to higher profits.
  • Net income totaled $173.3 million, up 121.8 percent from a year ago. Diluted EPS of $1.28 increased 124.6 percent.
  • First quarter of 2021 had one less business day compared to the first quarter of 2020.

First quarter total revenues for C.H. Robinson's NAST segment totaled $3.2 billion, an increase of 13.7 percent over the prior year, primarily driven by higher truckload pricing and an increase in LTL shipments, partially offset by a decrease in truckload volume. NAST adjusted gross profits increased 13.0 percent in the quarter to $421.1 million, with the March 2020 acquisition of Prime contributing 3.0 percentage points to NAST adjusted gross profit growth in the quarter. Adjusted gross profits in truckload increased 15.0 percent due to a 23 percent increase in adjusted gross profit per load, and LTL adjusted gross profits increased 6.9 percent versus the year-ago period. Our average truckload linehaul rate per mile charged to our customers, which excludes fuel surcharges, increased approximately 33 percent in the quarter, while truckload linehaul cost per mile, excluding fuel surcharges, increased approximately 33.5 percent. Truckload volume declined 6.5 percent in the quarter, and LTL volumes grew 15.0 percent. The first quarter of 2021 had one less business day than the first quarter of 2020. Truckload volume per business day declined 5.0 percent in the quarter, and LTL volume per business day grew 17.0 percent, resulting in overall NAST volume growth per business day of 7.0 percent. Operating expenses increased 3.7 percent primarily due to higher incentive compensation. Income from operations increased 38.8 percent to $136.8 million, and adjusted operating margin expanded 610 basis points to 32.5 percent. NAST average headcount was down 7.1 percent in the quarter, with Prime contributing 2.5 percentage points of growth.

First quarter total revenues for the Global Forwarding segment increased 118.0 percent to $1.2 billion, primarily driven by higher pricing and higher volume in both our ocean and air service lines, reflecting the strong demand environment, market share gains and strained capacity. Adjusted gross profits increased 67.0 percent in the quarter to $214.3 million. Ocean adjusted gross profits increased 93.9 percent, driven by higher pricing and a 27.0 percent increase in volumes. Adjusted gross profits in air increased 68.3 percent driven by higher pricing and a 7.0 percent increase in shipments. Customs adjusted gross profits increased 14.3 percent, primarily driven by a 13.5 percent increase in transaction volume. Operating expenses increased 6.3 percent, primarily driven by increased incentive compensation in personnel expenses and partially offset by lower amortization and travel expenses. First quarter average headcount decreased 1.8 percent. Income from operations increased 657.5 percent to $90.6 million, and adjusted operating margin expanded 3,300 basis points to 42.3 percent in the quarter.

____________________________________________

(1) Adjusted gross profits is a non-GAAP financial measure explained later in this release. The difference between adjusted gross profits and gross profits is not material.

First quarter Robinson Fresh adjusted gross profits decreased 9.1 percent to $24.9 million, primarily due to a 3.0 percent volume decline and margin compression in our retail vertical. Managed Services adjusted gross profits increased 13.4 percent in the quarter, primarily due to a 30.0 percent increase in volume. Other Surface Transportation adjusted gross profits decreased 2.4 percent to $16.5 million, primarily due to a 3.0 percent decline in Europe truckload volume.

Other Income Statement Items

The first quarter effective tax rate was 18.3 percent, up from 17.1 percent last year. We expect our 2021 full-year effective tax rate to be 20 to 22 percent. The first quarter rate is typically lower than our full-year rate due to the tax benefits related to delivery of annual stock-based compensation in the quarter.

Interest and other expenses totaled $11.3 million, consisting primarily of $12.2 million of interest expense, which decreased $0.4 million versus last year due to a lower average debt balance. The first quarter also included a $2.9 million unfavorable impact from foreign currency revaluation. These expenses were partially offset by a $2.9 million local government subsidy in Asia for achieving specified performance criteria that was almost entirely offset by a reduction in foreign tax credits within the provision for income taxes.

Diluted weighted average shares outstanding in the quarter were down 0.2 percent due primarily to share repurchases over the prior six months.

Cash Flow Generation and Capital Distribution

Cash used by operations totaled $56.7 million in the first quarter, compared to $58.5 million of cash generated in the first quarter of 2020. The $115.2 million decrease in cash flow was driven by a $468 million sequential increase in accounts receivable and contract assets, partially offset by a $216 million increase in accounts payable and accrued transportation expense and a $95 million increase in net income compared to the first quarter of 2020.

In the first quarter of 2021, $220.9 million was returned to shareholders, with $150.9 million in total repurchases of common stock and $70.0 million in cash dividends.

Capital expenditures totaled $13.5 million in the quarter. We continue to expect 2021 capital expenditures to be $55 million to $65 million, with the majority dedicated to technology.

Outlook

“In the first quarter, we delivered record revenues, adjusted gross profit, net income and EPS relative to all past first quarters and demonstrated the strength and earnings power of our non-asset-based business model,” Biesterfeld stated. “Looking forward, we will stay the course with our strategy of pursuing market share gains that align with our profitability expectations and will continue to invest back into the business in order to drive innovation and improve service to our customers and carriers. Within our NAST business, we expect tight market conditions to continue through the balance of this year. Regardless of how cyclical market conditions change and evolve, we will stay focused on driving growth and expanding our business with customers across our global suite of modes and services. We're very pleased with the performance of our Global Forwarding business, where we have built sustainable competitive advantages due to structural changes that we’ve made over the last few years. Across the board, as one of the world’s largest aggregators of a highly fragmented and diverse carrier base on multiple continents, we're committed to creating better outcomes for our customers and our carriers by delivering industry-leading technology that's built by and for supply chain experts.

Lastly, I’d like to thank the Robinson team members around the world for continuing to drive our company forward and for helping our company to emerge stronger.”

GAAP to Non-GAAP Reconciliation
(unaudited, in thousands)

Our adjusted gross profit is a non-GAAP financial measure. Adjusted gross profit is calculated as gross profit excluding amortization of internally developed software utilized to directly serve our customers and contracted carriers. We believe adjusted gross profit is a useful measure of our ability to source, add value, and sell services and products that are provided by third parties, and we consider adjusted gross profit to be a primary performance measurement. Accordingly, the discussion of our results of operations often focuses on the changes in our adjusted gross profit. The reconciliation of gross profit to adjusted gross profit is presented below (in thousands):
