Financial report summary

Risks
  • The Company’s Merger with CN is subject to various closing conditions, including regulatory and stockholder approvals as well as other uncertainties, and there can be no assurances as to whether and when it may be completed.
  • Failure to complete the Company’s Merger with CN could negatively impact the Company’s stock price and future business and financial results.
  • Because the exchange ratio is fixed and the market price of shares of CN stock has fluctuated and will continue to fluctuate, the Company stockholders cannot be sure of the value of the Merger Consideration they will receive in the Merger.
  • Lawsuits have been and additional lawsuits may be filed against the Company and/or CN challenging the transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement. An adverse ruling in any such lawsuit may delay or prevent the Merger from being completed.
  • The shares of CN common stock to be received by the Company’s stockholders upon completion of the Merger will have different rights from shares of the Company’s common stock.
  • After completion of the Merger, CN may fail to realize the projected benefits and cost savings of the Merger, which could adversely affect the value of CN common stock.
  • KCS’s business is subject to regulation by federal, state and local legislatures and agencies that could impose significant costs on the Company’s business operations.
Management Discussion
  • The decline in velocity and increase in dwell are primarily due to lingering network congestion as well as greater efficiencies realized during the second quarter of 2020 from lower volumes due to COVID-19.
  • For the three months ended June 30, 2021, revenues and carload/unit volumes increased 37% and 31%, respectively, compared to the same period in 2020. Revenues increased primarily due to higher volumes, higher fuel surcharge, and the strengthening of the Mexican peso against the U.S. dollar. For the six months ended June 30, 2021, revenues and carload/unit volumes increased 14% and 13%, respectively, compared to the same period in 2020. Revenues increased primarily due to higher volumes resulting from the recovery from COVID-19 impacts and increased volumes in the chemical and petroleum business unit due to strength in refined fuel product shipments into Mexico.
  • For the three months ended June 30, 2021, revenue per carload/unit increased by 7%, compared to the same period in 2020 due to higher fuel surcharge, the strengthening of the Mexican peso against the U.S. dollar, and positive pricing impacts, partially offset by mix. For the six months ended June 30, 2021, revenue per carload/unit increased by 2%, compared to the same period in 2020 due to positive pricing impacts, the strengthening of the Mexican peso against the U.S. dollar, and higher fuel surcharge, partially offset by shorter average length of haul. The average exchange rate of Mexican pesos per U.S. dollar was Ps.20.1 for the three months ended June 30, 2021, compared to Ps.23.4 for the same period in 2020, which resulted in an increase in revenues of approximately $16.2 million. The average exchange rate of Mexican pesos per U.S. dollar was Ps.20.2 for the six months ended June 30, 2021, compared to Ps.21.6 for the same period in 2020, which resulted in an increase in revenues of approximately $12.2 million.
