CSX Announces Record Third Quarter Results


Year-Over-Year Highlights:

Operating income improves to $878 million
Earnings per share increases 19 percent to 43 cents
Operating ratio remains strong at 70.4 percent

Jacksonville, Fla. - October 18, 2011 - CSX Corporation (NYSE: CSX) today announced third quarter net earnings of $464 million, or $0.43 per share, versus $414 million, or $0.36 per share, in the same period last year. This is a 19 percent improvement in earnings per share and a record third quarter for the company.

“Even as the economy moderated, CSX delivered strong financial results while investing in additional resources to strengthen customer service,” said Michael J. Ward, chairman, president and chief executive officer. “This helped position our business, our customers and our communities for growth in the near- and long-term.”

Revenue in the quarter improved 11 percent from the prior year to nearly $3 billion, with increases across all of the company's major markets. These results reflect the compelling value of freight rail transportation and fuel recoveries that offset higher costs. The higher revenue, coupled with the company's on-going focus on profitable growth, increased operating income to a third quarter record of $878 million and produced an operating ratio of 70.4 percent.

At the same time, the company expects to achieve its target of a 65 percent operating ratio by no later than 2015.

This earnings announcement, as well as a package of detailed financial information, is contained in the CSX Quarterly Financial Report available on the company's website at http://investors.csx.com and on Form 8-K with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”).
