The poor economic conditions experienced in the global container industry during 2016 and the bankruptcy of Hanjin Shipping Co reported earlier had a materially detrimental effect on Trencor’s results for the year ended 31 December 2016.  This was exacerbated by Trencor, in compliance with the requirements of IFRS, having had to charge additional depreciation on and impairing the container fleets of Textainer and TAC, beyond what is required under the US GAAP reporting applied by these companies.

Shareholders are advised that as a result headline loss per share, adjusted headline loss per share and loss per share for the year ended 31 December 2016 are expected to be within the ranges set out below:

2016 Expected 2015 Actual
% decrease/(increase) cps cps
Headline(loss)/earnings per share 178 - 190 (400) - (460) 513
Adjusted headline (loss)/earnings per share (which excludes net unrealised foreign exchange gains on translation of long-term receivables)


190 - 204


(400) - (460)



Loss per share (1076) - (1095) (976) - (992) (83)
