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

WARREN, Mich., April 5, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Universal Logistics Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: ULH) announced today the planned release of first quarter 2017 financial results on Thursday, April 27, 2017, immediately prior to the beginning of its annual shareholders meeting at 10:00 a.m. ET

Based on currently available information, Universal expects to report income from operations in the range of $7.0 million to $8.5 million, on total operating revenues anticipated to range from $280 million to $285 million.  This compares to $13.9 million of operating income in the first quarter of 2016 on revenues totaling $260.4 million.  Universal anticipates earnings per diluted share to be in the range of $0.11 to $0.14 for the first quarter of 2017, compared to $0.26 per share in first quarter 2016.

"We're seeing top-line revenue growth in many of our service categories, and expect that trend to continue throughout the year," stated Universal's Chief Executive Officer, Jeff Rogers.  "Our focus remains on improving margins, particularly at our large value-added programs where there is a great deal of opportunity right in front of us.  I anticipate we'll have a couple challenging quarters as we work through the launch phases of two major value-added programs, and that our operating results will likely continue to be adversely impacted by our operations supporting heavy-truck.  I expect those factors to level out by the second half of the year and, at the same time, we should start to experience price increases in our transportation businesses due to tightening capacity.  As we work through our near-term challenges, we remain committed to providing outstanding service to our customers and delivering profitable growth."
