Net income attributable to CAI common stockholders for the second quarter of 2013 was $16.9 million, a 12% increase compared to $15.1 million for the second quarter of 2012. Net income per fully diluted share attributable to CAI common stockholders for the second quarter of 2013 was $0.75, a 3% decrease compared to $0.77 for the second quarter of 2012; the 12% increase in net income being offset by a 15% increase in the number of fully diluted shares outstanding during the quarter.
Total revenue for the second quarter of 2013 was a record $53.0 million, compared to $39.7 million for the second quarter of 2012, an increase of 33%. Container rental revenue for the second quarter of 2013 was $48.4 million, compared to $35.1 million for the second quarter of 2012. The increase in container rental revenue was primarily due to an increase in the average number of TEUs of owned containers on lease. Management fee revenue for the second quarter of 2013 was $2.3 million, compared to $3.0 million for the second quarter of 2012, reflecting the reduction in the size of the managed fleet as CAI has acquired a number of its previously managed portfolios during the last twelve months. Finance lease income for the second quarter of 2013 increased to $2.3 million, from $1.6 million in the second quarter of 2012, as a result of new finance leases entered into during the last twelve months. Average fleet utilization was flat at 92.1% in the second quarter of 2013, compared to 92.2% in the first quarter.
Victor Garcia, Chief Executive Officer of CAI, commented, "Our results this quarter are consistent with our outlook in the first quarter conference call, when we had indicated delayed inquiries for new containers from shipping lines. However, as the second quarter progressed, customer inquiries increased and we experienced an increase in the lease-out of new equipment. Nonetheless, overall trade growth has not reached expected levels and consequently demand for new equipment has been weaker than we expected, resulting in a competitive rate environment. Despite the level of competition, we have been able to find attractive opportunities for investment. To date, we have invested in $265 million of equipment, approximately half of which has been portfolio repurchases and sale-leasebacks. Over the past three months, we have seen an increase in the level of railcar investment opportunities and at the moment we have a pipeline of $24 million of transactions that we expect to add to our rail fleet during the third quarter. These investments are largely in equipment on long-term leases at attractive lease rates. We expect to make additional railcar asset acquisitions over the remainder of the year."
Mr. Garcia continued, "We are very pleased to have been given a BBB unsecured bond rating from Kroll BondRatingsTM. We believe that an investment grade rating from Kroll BondRatingsTM will provide additional and more flexible financing opportunities to our company."
Mr. Garcia concluded, "As I stated, demand for containers has been softer this year than we had initially expected, which we believe reflects both the slow economic growth in the United States and Europe as well as the recent moderation of growth in China. However, the dynamics of global container supply/demand remain fairly balanced as can be seen by the continued relatively high level of utilization in our fleet and the increased pickup activity we have seen in recent weeks. While the overall demand outlook for new container growth has been somewhat below our expectations, we remain very profitable, with strong cash flows and net after tax income margins exceeding 30%. We continue to believe that the underlying fundamentals for our sector remain positive--high utilization, balanced supply/demand and tight credit markets for shipping companies--and that any uptick in overall economic activity, will result in an acceleration in the demand for new containers."
