NOTE 1.
Nature of Operations and Significant Accounting Policies

Background

CSX Corporation (“CSX”), and together with its subsidiaries (the “Company”), based in Jacksonville, Florida, is one of the nation's leading transportation companies. The Company provides rail-based transportation services including traditional rail service and the transport of intermodal containers and trailers.

CSX's principal operating subsidiary, CSX Transportation, Inc. (“CSXT”), provides an important link to the transportation supply chain through its approximately 21,000 route mile rail network, which serves major population centers in 23 states east of the Mississippi River, the District of Columbia and the Canadian provinces of Ontario and Quebec. The Company's intermodal business, also part of CSXT, links customers to railroads via trucks and terminals.

Other entities

In addition to CSXT, the Company’s subsidiaries include CSX Intermodal Terminals, Inc. (“CSX Intermodal Terminals”), Total Distribution Services, Inc. (“TDSI”), Transflo Terminal Services, Inc. (“Transflo”), CSX Technology, Inc. (“CSX Technology”) and other subsidiaries. CSX Intermodal Terminals owns and operates a system of intermodal terminals, predominantly in the eastern United States and also performs drayage services (the pickup and delivery of intermodal shipments) for certain CSXT customers and trucking dispatch operations. TDSI serves the automotive industry with distribution centers and storage locations. Transflo connects non-rail served customers to the many benefits of rail by transferring products from rail to trucks. Today, the biggest Transflo markets are chemicals and agriculture, such as minerals and ethanol. CSX Technology and other subsidiaries provide support services for the Company.
    
CSX’s other holdings include CSX Real Property, Inc., a subsidiary responsible for the Company’s real estate sales, leasing, acquisition and management and development activities. These activities are classified in other income - net because they are not considered to be operating activities by the Company. Results of these activities fluctuate with the timing of non-operating real estate transactions.

Basis of Presentation

In the opinion of management, the accompanying consolidated financial statements contain all normal, recurring adjustments necessary to fairly present the following:
  
Consolidated income statements for the quarters ended March 29, 2013 and March 30, 2012;
Consolidated comprehensive income statements for the quarters ended March 29, 2013 and March 30, 2012;
Consolidated balance sheets at March 29, 2013 and December 28, 2012; and
Consolidated cash flow statements for the quarters ended March 29, 2013 and March 30, 2012.

NOTE 1.
Nature of Operations and Significant Accounting Policies, continued

Pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”), certain information and disclosures normally included in the notes to the annual financial statements prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) have been omitted from these interim financial statements. CSX suggests that these financial statements be read in conjunction with the audited financial statements and the notes included in CSX's most recent annual report on Form 10-K and any subsequently filed current reports on Form 8-K.

Fiscal Year

CSX follows a 52/53 week fiscal reporting calendar with the last day of each reporting period ending on a Friday:
 
The first fiscal quarters of 2013 and 2012 consisted of 13 weeks ending on March 29, 2013 and March 30, 2012, respectively.
Fiscal year 2013 and 2012 will each consist of 52 weeks ending on December 27, 2013 and December 28, 2012, respectively.
    
Except as otherwise specified, references to “first quarter(s)” or “three months” indicate CSX's fiscal periods ending March 29, 2013 and March 30, 2012, and references to "year-end" indicate the fiscal year ended December 28, 2012.

Allowance for Doubtful Accounts

The Company maintains an allowance for doubtful accounts on uncollectible amounts related to freight receivables, government reimbursement receivables, claims for damages and other various receivables. The allowance is based upon the credit worthiness of customers, historical experience, the age of the receivable and current market and economic conditions. Uncollectible amounts are charged against the allowance account. Allowance for doubtful accounts of $37 million and $36 million is included in the consolidated balance sheets as of the end of first quarter 2013 and December 2012, respectively.

New Accounting Pronouncements

In February 2013, the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") issued an Accounting Standards Update to the Comprehensive Income Topic in the Accounting Standards Codifications ("ASC"). This update requires separate presentation of the components that are reclassified out of accumulated other comprehensive income either on the face of the financial statements or in the notes to the financial statements. This update also requires companies to disclose the income statement line items impacted by any significant reclassifications, such as the amortization of pension and other post-employment benefits adjustments. These items are required for both interim and annual reporting for public companies and became effective for CSX beginning with the first quarter 2013 Form 10-Q filing.

Other Items

Share Repurchases and Dividend Increase

In April 2013, the Company announced a 7 percent increase in the quarterly dividends to $0.15 per common share and announced a new $1 billion share repurchase program, which is expected to be completed in the next 24 months. There were no share repurchases during first quarter 2013.

Amortization of Gain from Property Disposition

In November 2011, the Company sold 61 miles of operating rail corridor to the Florida Department of Transportation for a new commuter rail operation known as SunRail. As part of the transaction, the Company received $173 million in proceeds and will receive up to $259 million in government grants for a total of $432 million. This agreement also obligated the Company to invest a total of $500 million in routine capital expenditures and maintenance related to transportation capacity, facilities or equipment in Florida, including diversion and relocation costs related to this transaction within the eight year period following the transaction.
        
In accordance with the Real Estate Sales Topic in the ASC, the sale of real estate resulted in a deferred gain of $160 million. The deferred gain is recognized into income ratably as the investment obligation is fulfilled. The Company recognized a gain of $29 million and $19 million in the first quarters of 2013 and 2012, respectively. This gain is included in materials, supplies and other in the consolidated income statements. The deferred gain balance included in the consolidated balance sheets is presented in the table below.

(a) Other potentially dilutive common shares include convertible debt, stock options, common stock equivalents and performance units granted under a long-term management incentive compensation plan.

Basic earnings per share is based on the weighted-average number of common stock outstanding. Earnings per share, assuming dilution, is based on the weighted-average number of shares of common stock outstanding adjusted for the effects of common stock that may be issued as a result of the following types of potentially dilutive instruments:

convertible debt;

employee stock options; and

other equity awards, which include long-term incentive awards.

CSX CORPORATION
NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(Unaudited)

NOTE 2.    Earnings Per Share, continued

The Earnings Per Share Topic in the ASC requires CSX to include additional shares in the computation of earnings per share, assuming dilution. The additional shares included in diluted earnings per share represent the number of shares that would be issued if all of the above potentially dilutive instruments were converted into CSX common stock.

When calculating diluted earnings per share, the Earnings Per Share Topic in the ASC requires CSX to include the potential shares that would be outstanding if all outstanding stock options were exercised. This is offset by shares CSX could repurchase using the proceeds from these hypothetical exercises to obtain the common stock equivalent. This number is different from outstanding stock options, which is included in Note 3, Share-Based Compensation. All stock options were dilutive for the periods presented; therefore, no stock options were excluded from the diluted earnings per share calculation.

Diluted shares outstanding are not impacted when debentures are converted into CSX common stock because those shares were already included in the diluted shares calculation. Shares outstanding for basic earnings per share, however, are impacted on a weighted-average basis when conversions occur.  An immaterial amount of conversions occurred during first quarters 2013 and 2012. As of the end of first quarter 2013, approximately $2 million of convertible debentures at face value remained outstanding, which are convertible into approximately 245 thousand shares of CSX common stock.

NOTE 3.
Share-Based Compensation

Under CSX's share-based compensation plans, awards primarily consist of performance grants, restricted stock awards, restricted stock units, stock options and stock grants for directors. CSX has not granted stock options since 2003. Awards granted under the various programs are determined and approved by the Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors or, in certain circumstances, by the Chief Executive Officer for awards to management employees other than senior executives. The Board of Directors approves awards granted to the Company's non-management directors upon recommendation of the Governance Committee.

Total pre-tax benefit associated with all share-based compensation and the related income tax expense are as follows:

These liabilities are accrued when estimable and probable in accordance with the Contingencies Topic in the ASC. Actual settlements and claims received could differ. The final outcome of these matters cannot be predicted with certainty. Considering the legal defenses currently available, the liabilities that have been recorded and other factors, it is the opinion of management that none of these items individually, when finally resolved, will have a material effect on the Company's financial condition, results of operations or liquidity. Should a number of these items occur in the same period, however, they could have a material effect on the Company's financial condition, results of operations or liquidity in that particular period.

CSX CORPORATION
NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

NOTE 4. Casualty, Environmental and Other Reserves, continued

Casualty
 
Casualty reserves of $311 million for the first quarter 2013 represent accruals for personal injury, occupational injury and asbestos claims. The Company's self-insured retention amount for these claims is $50 million per occurrence. Currently, no individual claim is expected to exceed the self-insured retention amount. In accordance with the Contingencies Topic in the ASC, to the extent the value of an individual claim exceeds the self-insured retention amount, the Company would present the liability on a gross basis with a corresponding receivable for insurance recoveries. These reserves fluctuate based upon the timing of payments as well as changes in independent third-party estimates, which are reviewed by management. Actual results may vary from estimates due to the number, type and severity of the injury, costs of medical treatments and uncertainties in litigation. Most of the claims relate to CSXT unless otherwise noted below. Defense and processing costs, which historically have been insignificant and are anticipated to be insignificant in the future, are not included in the recorded liabilities.
 
Personal Injury
Personal injury reserves represent liabilities for employee work-related and third-party injuries. Work-related injuries for CSXT employees are primarily subject to the Federal Employers’ Liability Act (“FELA”). In addition to FELA liabilities, employees of other CSX subsidiaries are covered by various state workers’ compensation laws, the Federal Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Program or the Maritime Jones Act.
    
CSXT retains an independent actuarial firm to assist management in assessing the value of personal injury claims. An analysis is performed by the independent actuarial firm quarterly and is reviewed by management. The methodology used by the actuary includes a development factor to reflect growth or reduction in the value of these personal injury claims. It is based largely on CSXT's historical claims and settlement experience.

Occupational & Asbestos
Occupational claims arise from allegations of exposures to certain materials in the workplace, such as solvents, soaps, chemicals (collectively referred to as “irritants”) and diesel fuels (like exhaust fumes) or allegations of chronic physical injuries resulting from work conditions, such as repetitive stress injuries, carpal tunnel syndrome and hearing loss. The Company is also party to a number of asbestos claims by current or former employees alleging exposure to asbestos in the workplace.
        
An analysis of occupational claims is performed quarterly by an independent third-party actuarial firm and reviewed by management. Management performs a quarterly review of asserted asbestos claims, and an analysis is performed annually by an independent third-party specialist and reviewed by management. The objective of the occupational and asbestos claims analyses performed by the third-party actuarial firm and specialist (the "third-party specialists") is to determine the number of incurred but not reported (“IBNR”) claims. The third-party specialists analyze CSXT's historical claim filings, settlement amounts, and dismissal rates to determine future anticipated claim filing rates and average settlement values for occupational and asbestos claims reserves. The potentially exposed population is estimated by using CSX's employment records and industry data. From this analysis, the third-party specialists provide an estimate of the IBNR claims liability.

NOTE 4. Casualty, Environmental and Other Reserves, continued

Environmental

Environmental reserves were $89 million for the first quarter 2013. The Company is a party to various proceedings related to environmental issues, including administrative and judicial proceedings involving private parties and regulatory agencies. The Company has been identified as a potentially responsible party at approximately 250 environmentally impaired sites. Many of these are, or may be, subject to remedial action under the federal Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act of 1980, or CERCLA, also known as the Superfund Law, or similar state statutes. Most of these proceedings arose from environmental conditions on properties used for ongoing or discontinued railroad operations. A number of these proceedings, however, are based on allegations that the Company, or its predecessors, sent hazardous substances to facilities owned or operated by others for treatment, recycling or disposal. In addition, some of the Company's land holdings were leased to others for commercial or industrial uses that may have resulted in releases of hazardous substances or other regulated materials onto the property and could give rise to proceedings against the Company.

In any such proceedings, the Company is subject to environmental clean-up and enforcement actions under the Superfund Law, as well as similar state laws that may impose joint and several liability for clean-up and enforcement costs on current and former owners and operators of a site without regard to fault or the legality of the original conduct. These costs could be substantial.

In accordance with the Asset Retirement and Environmental Obligations Topic in the ASC, the Company reviews its role with respect to each site identified at least quarterly, giving consideration to a number of factors such as:
 
type of clean-up required;
nature of the Company's alleged connection to the location (e.g., generator of waste sent to the site or owner or operator of the site);
extent of the Company's alleged connection (e.g., volume of waste sent to the location and other relevant factors); and
number, connection and financial viability of other named and unnamed potentially responsible parties at the location.

Based on the review process, the Company has recorded amounts to cover contingent anticipated future environmental remediation costs with respect to each site to the extent such costs are estimable and probable. The recorded liabilities for estimated future environmental costs are undiscounted. The liability includes future costs for remediation and restoration of sites as well as any significant ongoing monitoring costs, but excludes any anticipated insurance recoveries. Payments related to these liabilities are expected to be made over the next several years.

Currently, the Company does not possess sufficient information to reasonably estimate the amounts of additional liabilities, if any, on some sites until completion of future environmental studies. In addition, conditions that are currently unknown could, at any given location, result in additional exposure, the amount and materiality of which cannot presently be reasonably estimated. Based upon information currently available, however, the Company believes its environmental reserves accurately reflect the cost of remedial actions currently required.

Other

Other reserves of $62 million for the first quarter 2013 include liabilities for various claims, such as longshoremen disability claims, and claims for property, automobile and general liability.

NOTE 5.    Commitments and Contingencies

Insurance

The Company maintains numerous insurance programs with substantial limits for property damage (which includes business interruption) and third-party liability.  A certain amount of risk is retained by the Company on each of the liability and property programs.  The Company has a $25 million retention per occurrence for the non-catastrophic property program (such as a derailment) and a $50 million retention per occurrence for the liability and catastrophic property programs (such as hurricanes and floods).
 
While the Company believes its current insurance coverage is adequate to cover its damages, future claims could exceed existing insurance coverage or insurance may not continue to be available at commercially reasonable rates.

Legal
 
The Company is involved in litigation incidental to its business and is a party to a number of legal actions and claims, various governmental proceedings and private civil lawsuits, including, but not limited to, those related to fuel surcharge, environmental and hazardous material exposure matters, FELA claims by employees, other personal injury or property claims and disputes and complaints involving certain transportation rates and charges. Some of the legal proceedings include claims for compensatory as well as punitive damages and others are, or are purported to be, class actions. While the final outcome of these matters cannot be reasonably determined, considering, among other things, the legal defenses available and liabilities that have been recorded along with applicable insurance, it is currently the opinion of CSX management that none of these pending items will have a material adverse effect on the Company's financial condition, results of operations or liquidity. An unexpected adverse resolution of one or more of these items, however, could have a material adverse effect on the Company's financial condition, results of operations or liquidity in that particular period.
The Company is able to estimate a range of possible loss for certain legal proceedings for which a loss is reasonably possible in excess of reserves established. The Company has estimated this range to be $3 million to approximately $20 million in aggregate at March 29, 2013. This estimated aggregate range is based upon currently available information and is subject to significant judgment and a variety of assumptions. Accordingly, the Company's estimate will change from time to time, and actual losses may vary significantly from the current estimate.

Fuel Surcharge Antitrust Litigation

In May 2007, class action lawsuits were filed against CSXT and three other U.S.-based Class I railroads alleging that the defendants' fuel surcharge practices relating to contract and unregulated traffic resulted from an illegal conspiracy in violation of antitrust laws. In November 2007, the class action lawsuits were consolidated and are now pending in federal court in the District of Columbia. The suit seeks treble damages allegedly sustained by purported class members as well as attorneys' fees and other relief. Plaintiffs are expected to allege damages at least equal to the fuel surcharges at issue.

On June 21, 2012, the court certified the case as a class action. The decision was not a ruling on the merits of plaintiffs' claims, rather a decision to allow the plaintiffs to seek to prove the case as a class. The defendant railroads petitioned the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit for permission to appeal the District Court's class certification decision. On August 28, 2012, the Court of Appeals referred the petition to a merits panel, and directed that the parties to the case submit briefs addressing both the petition and the merits of the appeal. The Court of Appeals set oral arguments on the appeal for May 2013. The District Court stayed dissemination of notice to members of the class certified pending the outcome of the appeal.

CSXT believes that its fuel surcharge practices were arrived at and applied lawfully and that the case is without merit. Accordingly, the Company intends to defend itself vigorously. However, penalties for violating antitrust laws can be severe, and an unexpected adverse decision on the merits could have a material adverse effect on the Company's financial condition, results of operations or liquidity in that particular period or for the full year.
    
NOTE 6.    Employee Benefit Plans

The Company sponsors defined benefit pension plans principally for salaried, management personnel.  For employees hired on or before December 31, 2002, the plans provide eligible employees with retirement benefits based predominantly on years of service and compensation rates near retirement.  For employees hired in 2003 or thereafter, benefits are determined based on a cash balance formula, which provides benefits by utilizing interest and pay credits based upon age, service and compensation. 

In addition to these plans, the Company sponsors a self-insured, post-retirement medical plan and a life insurance plan that provide benefits to full-time, salaried, management employees, hired prior to January 1, 2003, upon their retirement if certain eligibility requirements are met.  Medicare-eligible retirees are covered by a health reimbursement arrangement, which is an employer-funded account that can be used for reimbursement of eligible medical expenses. Non-Medicare eligible retirees will continue to be covered by the existing self-insured program.  The life insurance plan is non-contributory.

Credit Facility
    
CSX has a $1 billion unsecured, revolving credit facility backed by a diverse syndicate of banks. This facility expires in September 2016, and as of the date of this filing, the Company has no outstanding balances under this facility. The facility allows borrowings at floating (LIBOR-based) interest rates, plus a spread, depending upon CSX's senior unsecured debt ratings. LIBOR is the London Interbank Offered Rate which is a daily reference rate based on the interest rates at which banks offer to lend unsecured funds. As of first quarter 2013, CSX was in compliance with all covenant requirements under this facility.

Receivables Securitization Facility

The Company's $250 million receivables securitization facility has a 364-day term and expires in December 2013. The Company's intention is to continue to renew this facility prior to its expiration. The purpose of this facility is to provide an alternative to commercial paper and a low cost source of short-term liquidity. As of the date of this filing, the Company has no outstanding balances under this facility.

NOTE 8.    Income Taxes

There have been no material changes to the balance of unrecognized tax benefits during the first quarter 2013 and 2012.

NOTE 9.    Fair Value Measurements

The Financial Instruments Topic in the ASC requires disclosures about fair value of financial instruments in annual reports as well as in quarterly reports. For CSX, this statement applies to certain investments and long-term debt. Disclosure of the fair value of pension plan assets is only required annually. Also, this rule clarifies the definition of fair value for financial reporting, establishes a framework for measuring fair value and requires additional disclosures about the use of fair value measurements.

Various inputs are considered when determining the value of the Company's investments, pension plan assets and long-term debt. The inputs or methodologies used for valuing securities are not necessarily an indication of the risk associated with investing in these securities. These inputs are summarized in the three broad levels listed below.

Level 1 - observable market inputs that are unadjusted quoted prices for identical assets or liabilities in active markets

Level 2 - other significant observable inputs (including quoted prices for similar securities, interest rates, credit risk, etc.)

Level 3 - significant unobservable inputs (including the Company's own assumptions in determining the fair value of investments)
 
The valuation methods described below may produce a fair value calculation that may not be indicative of net realizable value or reflective of future fair values. Furthermore, while the Company believes its valuation methods are appropriate and consistent with other market participants, the use of different methodologies or assumptions to determine the fair value of certain financial instruments could result in a different fair value measurement at the reporting date.

Investments
 
The Company's investment assets, valued with assistance from a third-party trustee, consist of certificates of deposits, corporate bonds, U.S. government securities and auction rate securities and are carried at fair value on the consolidated balance sheet per the Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures Topic in the ASC. There are several valuation methodologies used for those assets as described below.

CSX CORPORATION
NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(Unaudited)

NOTE 9.    Fair Value Measurements, continued

Certificates of Deposit and Commercial Paper (Level 2): Valued by discounting the related cash flows based on current yields of similar instruments with comparable durations.
Corporate Bonds and U.S. Government Securities (Level 2): Valued using price evaluations reflecting the bid and/or ask sides of the market for a similar investment as of the last day of the calendar plan year.
Auction Rate Securities (Level 3): Valued using a discounted cash flow model, because there is currently no active market for trading.
The Company's investment assets are carried at fair value on the consolidated balance sheets as summarized in the table below. Additionally, the amortized cost basis of these investments was $524 million and $742 million as of March 29, 2013 and December 28, 2012, respectively.

Long-term Debt
Long-term debt is reported at carrying amount on the consolidated balance sheets and is the Company's only financial instrument with fair values significantly different from their carrying amounts. The majority of the Company's long-term debt is valued with assistance from an independent third party who utilizes closing transactions, market quotes or market values of comparable debt. For those instruments not valued by the third party, the fair value has been estimated by applying market rates of similar instruments to the scheduled contractual debt payments and maturities. These market rates are provided by the same third party. All of the inputs used to determine the fair value of the Company's long-term debt are Level 2 inputs.

CSX CORPORATION

NOTE 9.    Fair Value Measurements, continued

The fair value of outstanding debt fluctuates with changes in a number of factors. Such factors include, but are not limited to, interest rates, market conditions, values of similar financial instruments, size of the transaction, cash flow projections and comparable trades. Fair value will exceed carrying value when the current market interest rate is lower than the interest rate at which the debt was originally issued. The fair value of a company's debt is a measure of its current value under present market conditions. It does not impact the financial statements under current accounting rules.

The fair value and carrying value of the Company's long-term debt is as follows:

NOTE 10. Other Comprehensive Income

CSX reports comprehensive earnings or loss in accordance with the Comprehensive Income Topic in the ASC in the Consolidated Comprehensive Income Statement. Total comprehensive earnings are defined as all changes in shareholders' equity during a period, other than those resulting from investments by and distributions to shareholders (e.g. issuance of equity securities and dividends). Generally, for CSX, total comprehensive earnings equals net earnings plus or minus adjustments for pension and other post-retirement liabilities. Total comprehensive earnings represent the activity for a period net of tax and were $476 million and $458 million for first quarters 2013 and 2012, respectively.

While total comprehensive earnings is the activity in a period and is largely driven by net earnings in that period, accumulated other comprehensive income or loss (“AOCI”) represents the cumulative balance of other comprehensive income, net of tax, as of the balance sheet date. For CSX, AOCI is primarily the cumulative balance related to pension and other post-retirement benefit adjustments and CSX's share of AOCI of equity method investees. Changes in the AOCI balance by component are shown in the table below.

CSX CORPORATION
ITEM 2. MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

STRATEGIC OVERVIEW
CSX provides rail-based freight transportation services including traditional rail service and the transport of intermodal containers and trailers with its approximately 32,000 dedicated employees. The Company and the rail industry provide customers with access to an expansive and interconnected transportation network that plays a key role in North American commerce and is critical to the economic success and global competitiveness of the United States. This global competitiveness and the expected continued growth in manufacturing is beneficial to the rail industry. Over the long-term, the U.S. demand to move more goods by rail is expected to rise along with the need to reduce highway congestion and greenhouse gas emissions. CSX and freight railroads provide the most environmentally-efficient and economical means to meet this growing demand. CSX can move a ton of freight approximately 450 miles on one gallon of diesel fuel. Shipping freight by rail also alleviates highway congestion. On average, trains are more fuel efficient than trucks as one rail car can move the equivalent of three truckloads.

CSX's network is positioned to reach nearly two-thirds of Americans, who account for the majority of the nation's consumption of goods. Through this network, the Company transports a diverse portfolio of commodities and products to meet the country's needs. These products range from agricultural goods, such as grains, to chemicals, automobiles, metals, building materials, paper, consumer products, and energy sources like coal, ethanol and crude oil. The Company categorizes these products into three primary lines of business: merchandise, intermodal and coal. CSX's transportation solutions connect industries across the United States with each other and with global markets by meeting the transportation needs of port facilities, energy producers, manufacturers, industrial producers, construction companies, farmers and feed mills, wholesalers and retailers and the United States armed forces.

The rebirth of the U.S. automotive industry and the development of new domestic energy sources have led to increased volume in some of CSX's merchandise markets, specifically in shipments of automobiles, frac sand, crude oil and pipe.  The increase in foreign labor costs, as well as lower domestic energy prices resulting from the increase in the supply of natural gas, helped to contribute to the recent growth in U.S. manufacturing. These, among other economic and supply chain factors are encouraging manufacturers to expand or move production back to the U.S. The Company continues to position itself to secure volume related to growth in these markets.

Strategic Growth Initiatives

The Company is focusing on three key strategic growth initiatives related to intermodal, export coal and an initiative to enhance customer service quality also known as Total Service Integration. The Company believes these opportunities will allow it to gain additional domestic and international volume, while improving service offerings to its customers in a cost-effective manner.

CSX CORPORATION
ITEM 2. MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION
AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS


Intermodal

The Company's intermodal business is an economical, environmentally-friendly alternative to transporting freight on highways via truck. CSX is capitalizing on this opportunity by building new terminals and increasing network capacity to broaden its market presence in key growth areas. The Company's Northwest Ohio intermodal terminal, which became operational in 2011, is part of CSX's National Gateway initiative discussed below. This high-capacity terminal expands service offerings to customers, improves market access to and from east coast ports and consumption centers and enhances the fluidity of the network. During 2012, the Company completed construction of new intermodal terminals in Louisville, Kentucky and Worcester, Massachusetts and completed major terminal expansion projects in Charlotte, North Carolina and Columbus, Ohio. In addition, the Company began construction on a new intermodal terminal in Winter Haven, Florida in 2012. These projects further enhance the Company's intermodal offering and support the growth the Company experienced over the last few years.
Export Coal
    
Economic expansion in China, India and Brazil and other developing countries has generated a growth cycle in export coal demand. Over the long term, demand for coal in these countries is expected to remain high due to rising consumption as they become more urbanized, which is increasing the need for electric power generation and steel production. These increases in global coal demand are likely to be met by shipments from coal producing countries, including the U.S., which has abundant coal deposits. In addition to the Company's ready access to large U.S. coal suppliers and multiple port facilities, CSX continues to enhance the capacity and operating efficiency of its export coal network, which favorably positions the Company to capitalize on this growth opportunity. In the long term, this export coal demand is expected to partially offset declines in domestic utility coal volume that has resulted from low natural gas prices and environmental regulation. Although the Company expects long-term growth in the export coal market, CSX export traffic volume and pricing will be subject to a high degree of volatility as a result of changes in the global economy and competition from foreign coal producers.
 
Total Service Integration

CSX's Total Service Integration (“TSI”) initiative supports growth through improved service, optimized train size, and increased asset utilization for unit train shipments from origin to destination. Building on this momentum, CSX is now focusing on another initiative to enhance service quality for customers who ship by the carload. This program, TSI Carload, focuses where the customer is impacted most - during the first and last mile of service. These enhancements aim to improve service levels and reliability of rail transportation over other modes of transportation. These improvements to operational processes, customer communication and service are better aligning CSX's operating capabilities with customers' needs and enabling the Company to capitalize on the growth opportunities described above. During 2012, CSX implemented new technology and processes to provide customers with proactive and transparent communications. These tools include real time notifications of departures and work to be completed, proactive alerts for cars that may be delayed and notices for work that will not be performed.

AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS


Public-Private Partnerships
    
Expanding capacity on U.S. rail networks provides substantial public benefits including job creation, increased business activity at U.S. ports, reduced highway congestion and lower air emissions. Therefore, CSX and its government partners are working jointly to invest in multi-year rail infrastructure projects such as the National Gateway. This initiative is a public-private partnership which will increase intermodal capacity and create substantial environmental and efficiency advantages by clearing key corridors between Mid-Atlantic ports and the Midwest for double-stack intermodal trains.
    
CSX is engaged in another major partnership initiative with the Commonwealth of Massachusetts to expand freight and commuter rail service. This partnership provided an expanded intermodal terminal footprint, relocation of bulk commodity operations and double-stack intermodal clearance from Worcester to the New York state line. In 2012, CSX sold its corridor between Boston and Worcester to the Commonwealth to allow increased commuter rail service while retaining the right to utilize this corridor for freight service.

CSX entered into a transaction with the state of Florida in 2011 to help alleviate highway congestion through a new commuter rail operation, known as SunRail. CSX sold a portion of its track to the state of Florida for its new commuter rail and will invest the proceeds in additional freight rail capacity and infrastructure within the state.

Balanced Approach to Cash Deployment

CSX remains highly committed to delivering value to shareholders through a balanced approach to deploying cash that includes investments in the business, dividend growth and share repurchases. In 2012, the Company invested $2.3 billion to further enhance the capacity, quality, safety and flexibility of its network. Included in this amount is $166 million of investments related to reimbursable public-private partnerships where reimbursements may not be fully received in a given year. In addition, CSX continues to return value to its shareholders in the form of dividends and share repurchases. In 2012, CSX completed a $2 billion share repurchase program that was announced in 2011.
    
In April 2013, the Company announced a 7 percent increase in the quarterly cash dividend to $0.15 per common share and announced a new $1 billion share repurchase program which is expected to be completed in the next 24 months. The Company has increased its quarterly cash dividend 11 times over the last eight years, including the recently announced increase, which represents a 29 percent compounded annual growth rate. While delivering shareholder value through this balanced approach to cash deployment, the Company remains committed to an improving investment grade credit profile.

In summary, these strategic initiatives and long-term investments discussed above provide a foundation for volume growth and productivity improvement, enhanced customer service and continued advancements in the safety and reliability of operations. To continue these types of investments, the Company must be able to operate in an environment in which it can generate adequate returns and drive shareholder value.  CSX will continue to advocate for a fair and balanced regulatory environment to ensure that the value of the Company's rail service would be reflected in any potential new legislation or policies.

CSX CORPORATION
ITEM 2. MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION
AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS



In addition to the financial highlights described above, the Company measures and reports safety and service performance.  The Company strives for continuous improvement in these measures through training, innovation and investment. For example, the Company's safety and train accident prevention programs rely on the latest tools, programs and employee participation that strengthen the safety culture in a supportive environment that allows each employee to be successful at CSX. Continued capital investment in the Company's assets, including track, bridges, signals, equipment and detection technology also supports safety performance. CSX safety programs are designed to prevent incidents that can impact employees, customers and the communities we serve.

The Company routinely collaborates with the Federal Railroad Administration ("FRA") and industry organizations as well as federal, state and local governments on the development and implementation of safety programs and initiatives. For example, CSX, Operation Lifesaver, Inc., the U.S. Department of Transportation and other major railroads from across the country have partnered in the Common Sense campaign to reduce the number of injuries and deaths around tracks and trains. In addition to these initiatives, CSXT also has an ongoing public safety program to clear-cut trees and vegetation at public passive highway-rail intersections (crossings with no flashing lights or gates) to improve the public's ability to discern rail hazards.

At CSX, operational success is built on employee commitment to maintaining a constant focus on safety. During first quarter 2013, key safety measures improved versus the previous year. The FRA reportable personal injury frequency index improved by 18 percent year over year to 0.66, showing extraordinary employee dedication to the Company's safety initiative.  The reported FRA train accident frequency rate also improved 31 percent year over year to 1.54.

Employees also showed a high commitment to customer service by setting new records for all network reliability and service metrics during this quarter. On-time originations improved 2 percent to 91 percent, and on-time arrivals improved 10 percent to 85 percent.  Average train velocity increased 5 percent to 23.4 miles per hour, and dwell improved 8 percent to 22.2 hours.

CSX CORPORATION
ITEM 2. MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION
AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS


First Quarter 2013 Results of Operations

Volume and Revenue
    
Volume declined 2% year-over-year as lower coal and agricultural products shipments were partially offset by growth in chemicals and intermodal volume. Pricing gains drove increases in revenue per unit in nearly all markets. As a result, total revenue was essentially flat year-over-year due to lower volume, offset by pricing gains, other revenue gains and higher fuel recoveries.

Merchandise

Agricultural

Agricultural Products - Volume decreased due to lower shipments of feed grain and ethanol. Shipments for animal feed declined due to low supplier inventories caused by last year's drought and increased competition from imports. Ethanol shipments were lower as a result of a continued reduction in gasoline demand in the U.S. and increased competition from imports.

Phosphates and Fertilizers - Volume increased as the reopening of a mine led to more short haul phosphate rock shipments to fertilizer production facilities. Fertilizer volume also grew as producers advanced shipments of fertilizer in anticipation of an expected increase in application by farms.

Food and Consumer - Volume declined due to a reduction in alcoholic beverage shipments. This reduction was primarily driven by consolidation within a customer's distribution network that resulted in lower shipments for CSX.

Industrial

Chemicals - Volume growth was driven by an increase in energy-related markets that include crude oil, liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) and frac sand. The rise in crude oil shipments was due to increased supply of low-cost crude from shale drilling activity, resulting in new shipments to east coast refineries.

Automotive - Although North American light vehicle production was flat, vehicle shipments increased due to the restart of a production facility. This increase was offset by competitive losses in the automotive parts business.

Metals - Volume decreased due to lower shipments of scrap metals and sheet steel. The decline in scrap metals was driven by lower global demand for domestic steel production and exported scrap metals, while sheet steel was negatively impacted by a source shift and competitive losses.

Housing and Construction

Forest Products - Volume was flat due to an increase in building products which was offset by the decline in paper shipments. The recovery of the residential housing market increased the demand for building products, while electronic substitution of print media continues to drive contraction in the paper market.


33

CSX CORPORATION
ITEM 2. MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION
AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS


Minerals - Volume was flat year-over-year as growth in salt shipments and aggregates (which include crushed stone, sand and gravel) was offset by a reduction in cement shipments. Salt shipments grew as a more severe winter resulted in increased application of salt to roads, and aggregates increased from the continued recovery in construction activity. Cement volume declined due to source shifts and a plant closure.

Waste and Equipment - Volume decreased in equipment primarily due to the cycling of the prior year surge in moves of third-party coal cars into storage as a result of coal market declines. This decrease was partially offset by growth in waste shipments due to continued clean-up efforts from Superstorm Sandy.
 
Coal

Shipments of domestic coal declined due to utility stockpiles above target levels and low natural gas prices. Export declines were driven by decreased shipments of U.S. thermal coal primarily to Europe where demand for electrical generation declined due to the overall softening of the economy.

Intermodal

Domestic volume was driven by highway-to-rail conversions, expanded service offerings and growth with existing customers. International volume was flat as new services were offset by recent carrier port shifts.

Other

Other revenue increased primarily due to higher revenue of $32 million from customers who did not meet minimum contractual volumes.


Expense

Expenses in the first quarter 2013 decreased $27 million from the prior year's first quarter. Significant variances are described below.

Labor and Fringe expense decreased $3 million due to the following:

Efficiency and volume-related labor costs decreased $20 million due to the year-over-year improvement in crew starts and overtime, as well as training and other labor savings.

Wage expense increased $13 million as a result of inflation.

Various other costs increased $4 million during the quarter.

Materials, Supplies and Other expense decreased $35 million due to the following:

Deferred gains increased year-over-year by $30 million.  During the quarter, a deferred gain of $20 million was recognized due to a closure arrangement reached during the quarter related to a prior conveyance of a formerly-owned company.  Additionally, the recognition of the deferred gain from the 2011 sale of an operating rail corridor to the state of Florida increased $10 million year-over-year.

Efficiency and volume-related expenses decreased $22 million primarily related to lower material and repair costs due to the reduction of active locomotives and other savings.

Inflation-related expenses increased $11 million.

Various other costs increased $6 million.

Fuel expense remained flat primarily as volume and efficiency offset the 3% increase in the average price per gallon for locomotive fuel.

Depreciation expense increased $13 million due to larger asset base.

Consolidated Results of Operations

Interest Expense
                   
Interest expense increased $3 million to $147 million primarily due to higher average debt balances during first quarter 2013 partially offset by lower average interest rates.

Other (Expense) Income - Net

Other income-net decreased $7 million to $(3) million primarily due to higher non-operating expenses.

Income Tax Expense

Income tax expense decreased $1 million to $266 million primarily due the extension of certain prior year tax credits partially offset by higher earnings.

Net Earnings

Net earnings increased $10 million to $459 million and earnings per diluted share increased $0.02 to $0.45 due to the factors mentioned above. Lower average shares outstanding also had a positive impact on earnings per diluted share.

LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES

The following are material changes in the consolidated balance sheets and sources of liquidity and capital, which provide an update to the discussion included in CSX's most recent annual report on Form 10-K.

Material Changes in Consolidated Balance Sheets and Significant Cash Flows

Consolidated Balance Sheets

Total assets increased $15 million from year end primarily due to the increase in net properties of $238 million resulting from capital spending as well as the increase in other current assets. These increases were partially offset by the decline in cash (including short-term investment activity) of $299 million.
    
Total liabilities and shareholders' equity combined increased $15 million from year end. This increase was due to net earnings of $459 million and increases in current taxes payable of $121 million. Partially offsetting these increases were debt repayments of $413 million as well as dividends paid of $143 million.

Significant Cash Flows

Cash and cash equivalents decreased $79 million during the three months ended 2013 versus the decrease of $156 million for the same period in the prior year primarily due to the following items:

No debt issued versus $300 million in the prior year

No share repurchases versus $300 million in the prior year

No pension plan contribution versus $275 million in the prior year

Higher net purchases of short-term investments of $140 million

Higher dividends paid of $18 million

Planned capital investments for 2013 are $2.3 billion, including expected spending of approximately $325 million for Positive Train Control ("PTC"). This amount excludes investments related to partially or wholly reimbursable public-private partnerships where reimbursements may not be fully received in a given year. Over half of the 2013 investment will be used to sustain the core infrastructure. The remaining amounts will be allocated to locomotives, freight cars, high return projects that drive growth and productivity such as intermodal terminal capacity and major track expansion along the River Line between northern New Jersey and the Albany, N.Y., region. CSX intends to fund capital investments through cash generated from operations.  

Over the long term, the Company expects to incur significant capital costs in connection with the implementation of PTC. CSX estimates that the total multi-year cost of PTC implementation will be at least $1.7 billion. This estimate includes costs for installing the new system along tracks, upgrading locomotives, adding communication equipment and developing new technologies. Total PTC spending life-to-date through March 2013 was $643 million.

Liquidity and Working Capital

As of the end of first quarter 2013, CSX had $1,072 million of cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments. CSX has a $1 billion unsecured revolving credit facility backed by a diverse syndicate of banks. This facility expires in September 2016 and as of the date of this filing, the Company has no outstanding balances under this facility. CSX uses current cash balances for general corporate purposes, which may include reduction or refinancing of outstanding indebtedness, capital expenditures, working capital requirements, contributions to the Company's qualified pension plan, redemptions and repurchases of CSX common stock and dividends to shareholders. See Note 7, Debt and Credit Agreements.

The Company's $250 million receivables securitization facility has a 364-day term and expires in December 2013. The Company's intention is to continue to renew this facility prior to its expiration. The purpose of this facility is to provide an alternative to commercial paper and a low cost source of short-term liquidity. As of the date of this filing, the Company has no outstanding balances under this facility.

Working capital can also be considered a measure of a company's ability to meet its short-term needs. CSX had a working capital surplus of $93 million and $174 million as of March 2013 and December 2012, respectively. This decline since year end is primarily due to cash used for capital investments and long-term debt repaid which more than offset cash from operations.

The Company's working capital balance varies due to factors such as the timing of scheduled debt payments and changes in cash and cash equivalent balances as discussed above. The Company continues to maintain adequate current assets to satisfy current liabilities and maturing obligations when they come due. Furthermore, CSX has sufficient financial capacity, including its revolving credit facility, trade receivable facility and shelf registration statement to manage its day-to-day cash requirements and any anticipated obligations. The Company from time to time accesses the credit markets for additional liquidity.

CRITICAL ACCOUNTING ESTIMATES

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States requires that management make estimates in reporting the amounts of certain assets and liabilities, the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and certain revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results may differ from those estimates. These estimates and assumptions are discussed with the Audit Committee of the Board of Directors on a regular basis. Consistent with the prior year, significant estimates using management judgment are made for the following areas:
 
casualty, environmental and legal reserves;
pension and post-retirement medical plan accounting;
depreciation policies for assets under the group-life method; and
income taxes.

For further discussion of CSX's critical accounting estimates, see the Company's most recent annual report on Form 10-K.

Forward-looking statements are typically identified by words or phrases such as "will," "should," “believe,” “expect,” “anticipate,” “project,” “estimate,” “preliminary” and similar expressions. The Company cautions against placing undue reliance on forward-looking statements, which reflect its good faith beliefs with respect to future events and are based on information currently available to it as of the date the forward-looking statement is made. Forward-looking statements should not be read as a guarantee of future performance or results and will not necessarily be accurate indications of the timing when, or by which, such performance or results will be achieved.
    
Forward-looking statements are subject to a number of risks and uncertainties and actual performance or results could differ materially from those anticipated by any forward-looking statements. The Company undertakes no obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statement. If the Company does update any forward-looking statement, no inference should be drawn that the Company will make additional updates with respect to that statement or any other forward-looking statements. The following important factors, in addition to those discussed in Part II, Item 1A (Risk Factors) of CSX's most recent annual report on Form 10-K and elsewhere in this report, may cause actual results to differ materially from those contemplated by any forward-looking statements:

legislative, regulatory or legal developments involving transportation, including rail or intermodal transportation, the environment, hazardous materials, taxation, and initiatives to further regulate the rail industry;
the outcome of litigation, claims and other contingent liabilities, including, but not limited to, those related to fuel surcharge, environmental matters, taxes, shipper and rate claims subject to adjudication, personal injuries and occupational illnesses;
changes in domestic or international economic, political or business conditions, including those affecting the transportation industry (such as the impact of industry competition, conditions, performance and consolidation) and the level of demand for products carried by CSXT;
natural events such as severe weather conditions, including floods, fire, hurricanes and earthquakes, a pandemic crisis affecting the health of the Company's employees, its shippers or the consumers of goods, or other unforeseen disruptions of the Company's operations, systems, property or equipment;
competition from other modes of freight transportation, such as trucking and competition and consolidation within the transportation industry generally;
the cost of compliance with laws and regulations that differ from expectations (including those associated with Positive Train Control implementation) and costs, penalties and operational impacts associated with noncompliance with applicable laws or regulations;
the impact of increased passenger activities in capacity-constrained areas, including potential effects of high speed rail initiatives, or regulatory changes affecting when CSXT can transport freight or service routes;
unanticipated conditions in the financial markets that may affect timely access to capital markets and the cost of capital, as well as management's decisions regarding share repurchases;
changes in fuel prices, surcharges for fuel and the availability of fuel;
the impact of natural gas prices on coal-fired electricity generation;
