YRC Worldwide Achieves Continued Year-over-Year First Quarter Operating Improvement Results Build on Agreements with Lenders that Provide Years of Financial Flexibility

-- YRC Freight tons per day up 3.5%, revenue per hundredweight up 3.3%, operating revenue up 8.1%

-- Regional tons per day up 6.0%, revenue per hundredweight up 4.5%, operating revenue up 9.8%

OVERLAND PARK, Kan., May 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- YRC Worldwide Inc. (NASDAQ: YRCW) today reported financial results for the first quarter of 2012.

Consolidated operating revenue for the seasonally slow first quarter of 2012 was $1.194 billion, up 6.4% over 2011, and consolidated operating loss was $48.8 million, which included an $8.4 million loss on asset disposals. As a comparison, the company reported consolidated operating revenue of $1.123 billion for the first quarter of 2011 and a consolidated operating loss of $68.4 million, which included a $3.0 million gain on asset disposals.  On Monday, the company also announced that 100% of its senior credit facility lenders agreed to reset certain financial covenants over the life of the loans and allow the company to retain all proceeds from the auction of certain surplus properties to pay or settle workers' compensation and bodily injury and property damage ("BIPD") claims.

In addition, the company reported, on a non-GAAP basis, adjusted EBITDA for the first quarter of 2012 of $15.3 million, up from negative adjusted EBITDA of $1.3 million during the comparable period in 2011 (as detailed in the reconciliation below).  On a year-over-year basis, adjusted EBITDA improved $16.6 million, even after taking into consideration approximately $23.0 million of multi-employer pension plan expense that the company incurred in the first quarter of 2012 but not in 2011.

"We are experiencing increased efficiencies at each of our operating companies.  Our employees are responding extremely well to our operating changes to regain a leading position in the LTL industry, and earlier this week, our senior credit facility lenders gave us a unanimous vote of confidence by amending those facilities to increase our liquidity by allowing us to retain the proceeds from the disposition of some excess real estate and increasing our financial flexibility for the foreseeable future.  This is an exciting time at YRCW as our team now has the financial flexibility and the tools to take this business to the next level," stated James Welch, chief executive officer of YRC Worldwide.  "Our plan is to continue building on this positive momentum throughout 2012 with the determination of delivering consistent, high-quality service that is both reliable and cost effective. The feedback we're getting is that our operating companies are providing the service levels our customers expect, and they are rewarding us with increased levels of business as our first quarter results indicate," Welch said.

YRC Freight delivered year-over-year improvement in operating revenues, which increased 8.1% to $789.1 million; tonnage per day increased 3.5%; shipments per day increased 2.8%; revenue per hundredweight increased 3.3%; and revenue per shipment increased 4.0%.

Regional Transportation also delivered year-over-year improvements in operating revenues, which increased 9.8% to $402.0 million; tonnage per day increased 6.0%; shipments per day increased 4.3%; revenue per hundredweight increased 4.5%; and revenue per shipment increased 6.2%.

"These year-over-year core operating improvements show promise and indicate we are on the right path.  However, we are still working to address some outstanding issues related to previous decisions that have affected the pace of our recovery," stated Welch.  "Our workers' compensation claims grew rapidly during the Yellow Transportation/Roadway Express integration. These claims increased our self-insured reserves as the company was not strategic in settling open claims at that time."

"To address these injury related issues, we have implemented the most robust employee safety training program in recent company history, and we are already seeing meaningful improvements in safety performance.  This continued commitment to safety is the most important long-term investment we can make in our employees.  With our intense focus on safety improvements, we anticipate workers' compensation claims will continue to decrease," Welch said.

"I continue to be pleased by the performance trends at Holland, Reddaway, and New Penn.  All three of our regional carriers are providing best-in-class service and have improved the operational components of their companies," Welch said.  "I am really proud of the employees at all three of these companies.  They are bringing our vision of industry leadership to life for all to see.  Our emphasis now will be on improving our market share and capitalizing on our operating leverage to continue increasing profitability," stated Welch.

"Having set in motion the turnaround and subsequent operating successes at Holland, Jeff Rogers, president of YRC Freight, is leading the efforts at YRC Freight with the exact same passion and enthusiasm.  The YRC Freight team recently implemented the most significant network redesign in the past decade.  This network optimization is engineered to more efficiently handle shipments and reduce unnecessary lane miles," said Welch.

"The redesigned network sets the blueprint for continuing gains in efficiency and customer service for YRC Freight.  Nearly every day, I hear from an employee of YRC Freight who is experiencing the results of our initial progress.  I am proud of their drive to bring customers back and serve them like never before," stated Rogers.

At March 31, 2012, the company's cash, cash equivalents and availability under its $400 million multi-year asset-based loan facility ("ABL") were $240.7 million, which marks the best first quarter liquidity position the company has reported since 2009. The ABL borrowing base was $343.3 million as of March 31, 2012 as compared to $360.5 million as of December 31, 2011. As a comparison, the company's cash, cash equivalents and availability under its ABL were $276.6 million at December 31, 2011 and $164.8 million of cash and availability at March 31, 2011.  For the three months ended March 31, 2012, cash used in operating activities was $17.1 million as compared to $46.3 million for the three months ended March 31, 2011, an improvement of $29.2 million.  This improvement in cash used for operations in 2012 was inclusive of a year-over-year increase of $21.0 million of cash paid for interest, an approximate $21.0 million of cash paid for multi-employer pension plans and a one-time payout of executive severance benefits to former executives of $12.3 million.

Other

On April 27, 2012, the company completed Amendment No. 2 to its Amended and Restated Credit Agreement ("Term Credit Agreement") which reset the covenants regarding minimum Consolidated EBITDA, maximum Total Leverage Ratio and minimum Interest Coverage Ratio (as such terms are defined in the Term Credit Agreement) for each of the remaining test periods.  In addition to resetting the covenants, the amendment also allows the company to retain 100% of the proceeds, related to the auction of certain of its surplus properties resulting from network integration in March 2009, for payment or settlement of workers' compensation or BIPD claims. We also completed Amendment No. 3 to our ABL Credit Agreement to reset the minimum Consolidated EBITDA covenant in a manner identical to the Term Credit Agreement. 

"The continued support of our lenders gives us the operating flexibility we need to grow the business and to continue providing the service our customers have become accustomed to receiving since the new management team took over. With the completion of these amendments and our renewed focus on the North American LTL shipping market, we are positioning ourselves to regain the title of the most respected LTL carrier in North America," said Jamie Pierson, chief financial officer of YRC Worldwide. 

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Adjusted operating income (loss) is a non-GAAP measure that reflects the company's operating income (loss) before letter of credit fees, equity-based compensation expense, net gains or losses on property disposals, and certain other items including restructuring professional fees and results of permitted dispositions.  Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP measure that reflects the company's earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization expense, and further adjusted for letter of credit fees, equity-based compensation expense, net gains or losses on property disposals and certain other items, including restructuring professional fees and results of permitted dispositions and discontinued operations as defined in the company's credit agreement. Adjusted EBITDA and adjusted operating income (loss) are used for internal management purposes as financial measures that reflect the company's core operating performance. In addition, management uses adjusted EBITDA to measure compliance with financial covenants in the company's credit agreement. Free cash flow and adjusted free cash flow are non-GAAP measures that reflect the company's operating cash flow minus gross capital expenditures and operating cash flow minus gross capital expenditures, excluding the restructuring costs included in operating cash flow, respectively. However, these financial measures should not be construed as better measurements than operating income, operating cash flow, net income or earnings per share, as defined by generally accepted accounting principles.

Adjusted operating income (loss), adjusted EBITDA and adjusted free cash flow have the following limitations:

  • Adjusted operating income (loss) and adjusted EBITDA do not reflect the interest expense or the cash requirements necessary to fund restructuring professional fees, letter of credit fees, service interest or principal payments on our outstanding debt;
  • Although depreciation and amortization are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated and amortized will often have to be replaced in the future, and adjusted EBITDA does not reflect any cash requirements for such replacements;
  • Equity-based compensation is an element of our long-term incentive compensation program, although adjusted operating income (loss) and adjusted EBITDA exclude either certain union employee equity-based compensation expense or all of it as an expense, respectively, when presenting our ongoing operating performance for a particular period;
  • Adjusted free cash flow excludes the cash usage by the company's restructuring activities, debt issuance costs, equity issuance costs and principal payments on our outstanding debt and the resulting reduction in the company's liquidity position from those cash outflows;
  • Other companies in our industry may calculate adjusted operating income (loss), adjusted EBITDA and adjusted free cash flow differently than we do, limiting their usefulness as a comparative measure.

Because of these limitations, adjusted operating income (loss), adjusted EBITDA, free cash flow and adjusted free cash flow should not be considered a substitute for performance measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. We compensate for these limitations by relying primarily on our GAAP results and using adjusted operating income (loss), adjusted EBITDA, free cash flow and adjusted free cash flow as secondary measures.  The company has provided reconciliations of its non-GAAP measures (adjusted operating income (loss), adjusted EBITDA, free cash flow and adjusted free cash flow) to GAAP measures within the supplemental financial information in this release.
