As the first quarter draws to a close, XPO Logistics released its Q1 results slightly ahead of schedule and on track with expectations, according to the company’s latest earnings report. The third-party logistics provider reported revenues of $7 billion for the quarter, up from $6 billion in Q4 of 2017 and beating analyst expectations by about $25 million. Despite strong revenue growth, XPO’s net income was down almost 10% quarter-over-quarter.

On Monday, the company stated that it anticipated posting third-quarter sales below analysts’ predictions.

However, XPO also stated that it anticipates its earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortisation (EBITDA) to exceed the company’s expectations.

According to Mario Harik, who will take over as CEO, “our adjusted EBITDA will be in the region of $348 million and $352 million, which comes in higher than the top end of our estimate.” The stats for today show that we are entering the spin from a position of strength.

When it releases its quarterly profits report on October 31, XPO stated on Monday that it anticipates reporting $3.04 billion. Refinitiv polled analysts who predicted $3.09 billion.

The partial results report was made before to the company’s first investor day under new CEO Harik, which will take place on Tuesday, and the spinoff of its high-tech truck trading division into a new publicly listed company called RXO on November 1.

Since the spinoff announcement in March, shares of XPO have dropped by 19%, while the S&P 500 has dropped by 12%. In a March Squawk Box interview, former CEO and Chairman of XPO Brad Jacobs expressed his belief that making the business a pure-play trucker would end the so-called “conglomerate discount” for XPO shares.

The firm anticipates revenue to drop 2% year over year and volume to rise 9% for the truck brokerage business that will become RXO. According to the most recent statistics from Evercore ISI, those rates decreased 22% year over year in October but nevertheless remained 20% higher than October 2019, prior to the epidemic. Truck brokerage connects truckers with consumers in the on-demand “spot market.”

By that time, it anticipates the brokerage firm to have an adjusted EBITDA of $475 million to $525 million and yearly spending of around 1% of sales.

We anticipate ongoing excellent performance from both XPO and RXO, according to the long-term forecast we set, Harik stated.
