CSX announces Q4 and full year 2019 results

(Source: CSX press release, January 16, 2020)

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — CSX Corporation (NASDAQ: CSX) today announced fourth quarter 2019 net earnings of $771 million, or $0.99 per share, versus $843 million, or $1.01 per share in the same period last year. CSX’s operating ratio set a company fourth quarter record of 60.0 percent, compared with 60.3 percent in the prior year.

For the full year 2019, CSX generated net earnings of $3.33 billion, or $4.17 per share, versus $3.31 billion, or $3.84 per share in 2018, an increase of 1% and 9%, respectively. CSX’s full year 2019 operating ratio of 58.4 percent represents a new U.S. Class I railroad record, improving upon last year’s record result of 60.3 percent.

“The railroad has never run better and we are delivering great service to our customers,” said James M. Foote, president and chief executive officer. “What is really amazing is how our employees stepped up to produce efficiencies during tough economic conditions.”

Revenue for the fourth quarter decreased 8 percent versus prior year to $2.89 billion due to lower volumes and negative mix from coal market headwinds. Expenses decreased 9 percent year over year to $1.73 billion, driven by continued efficiency gains and volume-related savings. Operating income was down 8 percent to $1.15 billion compared to the same period last year.

CSX executives will conduct a conference call with the investment community this afternoon, January 16, at 4:30 p.m. Eastern Time.
