Press Release
Friday, August 03, 2012

Horizon Lines reports second-quarter 2012 financial results: container volume improves 3.6% from a year ago.

Sam Woodward, President and Chief Executive Officer said "Our overall adjusted EBITDA performance for the quarter was better than expected, due largely to the volume gain, which in turn improved the recovery of fuel costs. Our overall adjusted EBITDA performance for the quarter was better than expected, due largely to the volume gain, which in turn improved the recovery of fuel costs."

"Looking at each trade lane, Hawaii experienced continued strong volume gains during the quarter, helped in part by improving tourism and ongoing customer support amid an otherwise sluggish business environment," Mr. Woodward said. "Alaska's business rebounded from the first quarter, when record cold and snowfall exacerbated and extended the typically slow winter season. However, volume remained just shy of the year ago level, primarily due to a late start to the summer seafood season. Puerto Rico experienced a modest volume increase from a year ago, characterized by an improved mix of refrigerated cargo."

Outlook
The company continues to project that 2012 container volumes will increase modestly, in the 1% to 2% range, and that container rates, net of fuel surcharges, will rise slightly from 2011 levels, due to the continuing slow economic recoveries in our markets.  Fuel prices for 2012 are currently projected to average in the $675-$680 per-ton range.
