ZIM Integrated Shipping (NYSE:ZIM) the stock is lower on Wednesday after the release of the company’s first-quarter 2022 earnings report.
The good news for ZIM shares starts with the company’s diluted earnings per share of $14.19. That’s well above Wall Street’s estimate of $12.53 per share for the period. It’s also a massive increase from diluted EPS of $5.13 over the same period last year.
Added to this are revenues of $3.72 billion. Again, that beat analysts’ revenue estimate of $3.47 billion for the quarter. It’s also a 113% year-over-year increase from revenue of $1.74 billion.
Another boon for ZIM stock is the increased guidance for the full year 2022. The company therefore expects adjusted EBITDA between $7.8 billion and $80.2 billion, as well as an adjusted EBIT ranging from $60.3 billion to $6.7 billions.
Eli Glickman, president and CEO of ZIM Integrated Shipping, said so in the company’s earnings report.
“Since the start of 2022, we have announced attractive charter deals for 17 new build vessels, securing modern and efficient tonnage particularly well suited to serve on our expanded fast-track service network. Importantly, we will retain the flexibility to adjust our fleet size based on market conditions and position ourselves at the forefront of reducing carbon intensity among global ocean liners.
