OVERLAND PARK, Kan., Feb. 27, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- YRC Worldwide Inc. (Nasdaq:YRCW) today reported financial results for the fourth quarter and full year 2013.

Full Year Results

Consolidated operating revenue for the year ended December 31, 2013 was $4.865 billion, 0.3% higher than 2012 and consolidated operating income increased $4.3 million to $28.4 million, which included a $2.2 million gain on asset disposals. Comparatively, the company reported consolidated operating revenue of $4.851 billion for the year ended December 31, 2012 and a consolidated operating income of $24.1 million, which included a $9.7 million gain on asset disposals.

The company reported, on a non-GAAP basis, adjusted EBITDA for the year ended December 31, 2013 of $257.7 million, a $16.5 million improvement over the $241.2 million adjusted EBITDA during 2012 (as detailed in the reconciliation below).

"Our 2013 operating performance was slightly improved compared to 2012, and though better, we were hampered by execution challenges of the YRC Freight network optimization in the second and third quarters of 2013, driver shortages during the summer months and tough winter weather late in the fourth quarter," said YRC Worldwide CEO James Welch. "While YRC Freight stumbled during 2013, our Regional carriers delivered a solid performance with a 5.4% increase in revenue from increases in both tonnage and revenue per hundredweight," stated Welch. "The Regional carriers reported $79.9 million of operating income, an increase of $9.9 million over the same period in 2012, and increased adjusted EBITDA by $10.3 million, from $140.2 million in 2012 to $150.5 million in 2013. With an operating ratio of 95.4 for 2013, the Regional carriers produced results that were more than competitive within the industry. 

"As we move into 2014, we will be focusing our efforts and attention on implementing the changes in our recently ratified Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the International Brotherhood of Teamsters (IBT), solidifying YRC Freight's regimented service cycle, more aggressively managing our yield across our operating companies, investing in our technology and revenue equipment and reengaging our workforce," continued Welch. "Today, we have an experienced team, a more competitive union contract, a strong customer base and, for the first time in the last five years, we do not have the overhang of any near-term debt maturities. Going forward, we will be adhering to a strict set of fundamental freight processes that will allow us to improve our on-time service performance at YRC Freight much like we have at our Regional companies. These changes will enable us to provide our customers the best possible service for their specific freight needs," Welch said.

Fourth Quarter Results

Consolidated operating revenue for the fourth quarter of 2013 was $1.208 billion, 3.3% higher than 2012; however, consolidated operating income decreased $31.6 million to an operating loss of $1.6 million, which included a $0.3 million gain on asset disposals. As a comparison, the company reported consolidated operating revenue of $1.169 billion for the fourth quarter of 2012 and a consolidated operating income of $30.0 million, which included a $9.2 million gain on asset disposals. 

The company reported, on a non-GAAP basis, adjusted EBITDA for the fourth quarter of 2013 of $59.9 million, a $17.1 million decrease over the $77.0 million adjusted EBITDA during 2012 (as detailed in the reconciliation below).

During the fourth quarter of 2013, YRC Freight experienced a slight year-over-year volume increase due to a 1.0% increase in shipments per day and 3.2% increase in tonnage per day but fell short in overall pricing with a decline in revenue per hundredweight of 3.3% and a 1.1% decline in revenue per shipment. "We did see improvement in the service cycle in the network at YRC Freight in October and November; however, distractions related to the ratification of the MOU throughout December and, as with other carriers, weather disruptions wreaking havoc on our national network, we experienced a year-over-year decrease in productivities and an increase in purchased transportation," said Welch. "Additionally, as noted in the third quarter, we continue to experience favorable workers' compensation trends, slightly offset by worse accident experience.  On a consolidated basis, our favorable workers' compensation and BIPD adjustment was $2.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2013 compared to a favorable adjustment of $9.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2012. This $7.7 million variance negatively impacted our comparable results.

"During the fourth quarter of 2013, our Regional group continued to produce results that were at or near industry margins," stated Welch. "Our Regional group continues to build on their profitability with operational improvements and efficiencies. Through hard work and dedication, the Regional group produced fourth quarter operating income of $22.7 million and a 94.7 operating ratio, an improvement of $14.3 million and 3.2 percentage points, respectively. I'm very proud of the accomplishments of the Holland, Reddaway and New Penn teams," Welch said.

Liquidity and Financing

At December 31, 2013, the company's liquidity, including cash, cash equivalents and availability under its $400 million asset-based loan facility (ABL), was $227.8 million.  The ABL borrowing base was $376.4 million as of December 31, 2013. As a comparison, the company's liquidity, including cash, cash equivalents and availability under its ABL, was $251.3 million at December 31, 2012 with a borrowing base of $369.8 million. For the year ended December 31, 2013, cash provided by operating activities was $12.1 million as compared to cash used in operating activities of $25.9 million for the year ended December 31, 2012, an improvement of $38.0 million. 

"As we previously announced, we completed the final step of our global capital structure transformation which we believe will provide the needed runway for YRC Freight to complete its operational turnaround and allow the Regional companies to continue their solid performance," said Jamie Pierson, chief financial officer of YRC Worldwide. "Successfully reducing our debt by approximately $300 million through an equity raise and note exchange, extending the IBT contract and pension fund note, and refinancing our senior debt facilities has substantially delevered the balance sheet. These transactions significantly simplified the overall capital structure and decreased cash interest expense for the company going forward. With our new capital structure and extended maturities, we believe we are well positioned for the future and are now able to concentrate on service, our customers, and return to our stockholders," concluded Pierson.

Other

Additionally, today we announced that Darren Hawkins, 44, has been appointed as the YRC Freight president and will report directly to James Welch, CEO of YRC Worldwide. 

"I am very pleased with the changes Darren has made with our sales organization and momentum that he has been able to build, and the strength he and his team displayed throughout the MOU and refinancing effort," said Welch.  "Darren brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the position as he has over 24 years of experience in the national LTL industry in both sales and operations. Having started with Yellow Freight as a dock supervisor and rising through the ranks during his career, he knows this business. The combination of his expertise in both sales and operations will provide invaluable insight and will bring immediate and lasting value," concluded Welch.

Previously, Hawkins was senior vice president of Sales and Marketing for YRC Freight. Prior to holding that position, he served for four years at Con-way in a major operations role before rejoining YRC Freight in January 2013. In the 18.5 years he previously spent with the company, Hawkins held various roles with increasing responsibility in operations and sales. Hawkins earned a bachelor's degree in business administration in marketing and supply chain management from the University of Memphis and currently serves on the school's Marketing and Supply Chain Advisory Board.  

Review of Financial Results

YRC Worldwide Inc. will host a conference call with the investment community today, Thursday, February 27, 2014, beginning at 9:30 a.m. ET, 8:30 a.m. CT. The call will be available to listeners as a live webcast and as a replay via the YRC Worldwide website yrcw.com.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

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 facilities. Adjusted EBITDA is used for internal management purposes as a financial measure that reflects the company's core operating performance. In addition, management uses adjusted EBITDA to measure compliance with financial covenants in the company's credit facilities.  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 professional fees included in operating cash flow, respectively. However, these financial measures should not be construed as better measurements than operating cash flow, net income or earnings per share, as defined by generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP).

Adjusted EBITDA, free cash flow and adjusted free cash flow have the following limitations:

  • Adjusted EBITDA does 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 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 EBITDA excludes certain employee equity-based compensation expense when presenting our ongoing operating performance for a particular period;
  • Adjusted free cash flow excludes the cash usage by the company's restructuring professional fees, 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 EBITDA differently than we do, limiting their usefulness as a comparative measure.

Because of these limitations, 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 EBITDA, free cash flow and adjusted free cash flow as a secondary measure. The company has provided reconciliations of its non-GAAP measures, adjusted EBITDA, free cash flow and adjusted free cash flow, to GAAP operating income (loss) within the supplemental financial information in this release.
