Universal Logistics Holdings, Inc. Announces Second Quarter 2017 Earnings Release and Conference Call Dates and Provides Outlook

WARREN, Mich., July 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Universal Logistics Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: ULH) announced today the planned release of second quarter 2017 financial results after the market closes on Thursday, July 27, 2017.

Based on currently available information, Universal expects to report income from operations in the range of $5.0 million to $6.5 million, on total operating revenues anticipated to range from $300 million to $305 million.  This compares to $16.8 million of operating income in the second quarter of 2016 on revenues totaling $276.8 million.  Universal anticipates earnings per diluted share to be in the range of $0.08 to $0.11 for the second quarter of 2017, compared to $0.32 per share in second quarter 2016.

"During the second quarter 2017, we came to a mutual agreement with one of our customers to exit and transition certain unprofitable value-added services performed by our Mexican operation," stated Universal's Chief Executive Officer, Jeff Rogers.  "In the second quarter alone, we incurred over $8.0 million in operating losses attributable to this operation.  We believe the decision provides the best solution for both Universal and its customer, and we look forward to the continued relationship we have on several other ongoing programs.  Although we are clearly disappointed with the bottom line, there is a lot going on that I'm really excited about.  Our transportation segment is delivering solid results, we're seeing recovery in our operations supporting the heavy-truck market, and for the second quarter in a row, we grew top-line revenues across all of our service lines.  With much of the headwinds behind us, and so many signs of improvement for the industrial base of customers we serve, we look forward to returning Universal to its historical performance."
