XPO q4 results: the highest revenue of any quarter in our history

 XPO Logistics, Inc. has announced its financial results for the fourth quarter 2020. Revenue increased to $4.67 billion, compared with $4.14 billion for the fourth quarter 2019.

Net income attributable to common shareholders was $93 million, compared with $96 million for the fourth quarter 2019. Operating income was $228 million, compared with $202 million for the fourth quarter 2019. Diluted earnings per share was $0.91, compared with $0.93 for the fourth quarter 2019.

Adjusted net income attributable to common shareholders, a non-GAAP financial measure, was $121 million for the fourth quarter 2020, compared with $115 million for the same period in 2019. Adjusted diluted earnings per share, a non-GAAP financial measure, was $1.19 for the fourth quarter 2020, compared with $1.12 for the same period in 2019.

Adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (“adjusted EBITDA”), a non-GAAP financial measure, was $449 million for the fourth quarter 2020, compared with $432 million for the same period in 2019.

For the fourth quarter 2020, the company generated $193 million of cash flow from operations and $91 million of free cash flow, a non-GAAP financial measure. For the full year 2020, the company generated cash flow from operations of $885 million and free cash flow of $554 million.

Brad Jacobs, chairman and chief executive officer of XPO Logistics, said, “Our fourth quarter revenue, earnings and free cash flow were all much better than expected. The investments we made in our people and technology in 2020 helped us to generate the highest revenue of any quarter in our history. We also doubled our truck brokerage net revenue year-over-year, and we improved our fourth quarter LTL adjusted operating ratio, excluding real estate gains, for the sixth straight year. The industry’s biggest tailwinds are at our back in 2021 — e-commerce fulfillment and returns, supply chain outsourcing and fast-growing customer demand for our digital capabilities.
