Greenbrier's results for the company's Q2 2013 have been released. For the quarter, revenue totaled $423 million, which was more than $35 million lower than the $458 million in the same period the previous year. Attributable net profit was also down, landing at $13.8 million ($0.45 per diluted share), from Q2 2012's bottom line of $17.7 million ($0.57).
The revenue figure fell short of analyst estimates, while the EPS number exceeded them. Expectations were for $443 million in top line, and a per-share net of $0.37.
Greenbrier also provided forward guidance. The company believes it will deliver roughly 13,000 railcar units in fiscal 2013, and post revenue, adjusted EBITDA, and EPS similar to the previous year.
