The Best Operating Ratio Reported in Nearly Three Years

OVERLAND PARK, Kan., Nov. 03, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Yellow Corporation (NASDAQ: YELL) reported results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2021. Operating revenue was $1.301 billion and operating income was $48.4 million. In comparison, operating revenue in the third quarter 2020 was $1.183 billion and operating income was $19.4 million.

Net income for third quarter 2021 was $8.3 million, or $0.16 per share, compared to net loss of $2.0 million, or $0.04 per share in third quarter 2020.

On a non-GAAP basis, the Company generated Adjusted EBITDA of $94.4 million in third quarter 2021, a $32.4 million increase compared to $62.0 million in the prior year comparable quarter (as detailed in the reconciliation below). Last twelve months Adjusted EBITDA as of September 30, 2021, was $248.4 million compared to $179.8 million as of September 30, 2020 (as detailed in the reconciliation below).

“During the third quarter we kept our focus on meeting our customers’ needs while improving the quality and profitability of the freight flowing through our network,” said Darren Hawkins, Chief Executive Officer. “Third quarter revenue increased 10% compared to a year ago driven by an increase in year-over-year LTL revenue per hundredweight of 20.7%. We also reported an operating ratio of 96.3% which is the best result since fourth quarter 2018.

“Capacity across the U.S. supply chain remains constricted with limited ability to expand primarily due to the tight labor market. In the near term, we are leaning into our yield strategy to help manage through the market labor headwinds and focus on reducing purchased transportation expense as a percentage of revenue.

“Our multi-year transformation to One Yellow, and the operational efficiencies that we expect to achieve, should put the Company in position to continue improving financial results in 2022. During the third quarter we completed the conversion of our third operating company to the One Yellow technology platform as planned. This moves us closer to operating as a fully integrated network and enhancing the customer value proposition in the 1, 2 and 3-day lanes nationwide. The final operating company to be converted to the technology platform is expected to be completed around the end of this year.

“Another key step in the journey to One Yellow will take place next week when HNRY Logistics is renamed Yellow Logistics. Although the name will change, Yellow Logistics will continue using cutting-edge technology to provide multi-mode logistics solutions to complement our extensive core LTL resources and capabilities.

“We have maintained a strong liquidity position while executing one of the largest capital expenditure plans in Company history. The capital expenditures guidance range for 2021 remains $480 million to $530 million. Investments made this year include tractors, trailers, technology, box trucks, containers, liftgates and other assets. These investments are making a significant impact to our fleet. Beginning with the fourth quarter 2020 through the end of 2021 we will have upgraded approximately 18% of our tractors and 9% of our trailers,” concluded Hawkins.

Financial Update

  • In third quarter 2021, the Company invested $96.7 million in capital expenditures. This compares to $17.3 million in capital expenditures in third quarter 2020.

Operational Update

  • The operating ratio for third quarter 2021 was 96.3 compared to 98.4 in third quarter 2020.

  • Including fuel surcharge, third quarter 2021 LTL revenue per hundredweight increased 20.7% and LTL revenue per shipment increased 17.3% compared to the same period in 2020. Excluding fuel surcharge, third quarter LTL revenue per hundredweight increased 15.6% and LTL revenue per shipment increased 12.4%.

  • Third quarter 2021 LTL tonnage per workday decreased 9.4% when compared to third quarter 2020.

Liquidity Update

  • The Company’s available liquidity, which is comprised of cash and cash equivalents and Managed Accessibility (as detailed in the supplemental information provided below) under its ABL facility, was $409.2 million as of September 30, 2021, compared to $453.7 million as of September 30, 2020.

  • The Company’s outstanding debt was $1.614 billion as of September 30, 2021, an increase of $458.5 million compared to $1.156 billion as of September 30, 2020.

  • For the nine months ended September 30, 2021, cash provided in operating activities was $9.3 million compared to cash provided by operating activities of $108.5 million in 2020.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

EBITDA is a non-GAAP measure that reflects the company’s earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization expense. Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP measure that reflects EBITDA, and further adjusts for letter of credit fees, equity-based compensation expense, net gains or losses on property disposals, restructuring charges, transaction costs related to issuances of debt, non-recurring consulting fees, non-cash impairment charges and the gains or losses from permitted dispositions, discontinued operations, and certain non-cash expenses, charges and losses (provided that if any of such non-cash expenses, charges or losses represents an accrual or reserve for potential cash items in any future period, the cash payment in respect thereof in such future period will be subtracted from Adjusted EBITDA in such future period to the extent paid). Adjusted EBITDA as used herein is defined as Consolidated EBITDA in our UST Credit Agreements and Term Loan Agreement (collectively, the “TL Agreements”). EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are 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 our TL Agreements and to determine certain incentive compensation. We believe our presentation of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA is useful to investors and other users as these measures represent key supplemental information our management uses to compare and evaluate our core underlying business results, particularly in light of our leverage position and the capital-intensive nature of our business. Further, EBITDA is a measure that is commonly used by other companies in our industry and provides a comparison for investors to evaluate the performance of the companies in the industry. Additionally, Adjusted EBITDA helps investors to understand how the company is tracking against our financial covenants in our TL Agreements.

EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA have the following limitations:

  • EBITDA does not reflect the interest expense or the cash requirements necessary to service interest or fund principal payments on our outstanding debt;

  • Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect the interest expense or the cash requirements necessary to service interest or fund principal payments on our outstanding debt, letter of credit expenses, restructuring charges, transaction costs related to debt, non-cash charges, charges or losses (subject to the conditions above), or nonrecurring consulting fees, among other items;

  • Although depreciation and amortization are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated and amortized will have to be replaced in the future and EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not reflect any cash requirements for such replacements;

  • Equity-based compensation is an element of our long-term incentive compensation program for certain employees, although Adjusted EBITDA excludes employee equity-based compensation expense when presenting our ongoing operating performance for a particular period; and

  • Other companies in our industry may calculate Adjusted EBITDA differently than we do, limiting its usefulness as a comparative measure.

Because of these limitations, our non-GAAP measures 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 our non-GAAP measures as secondary measures. The company has provided reconciliations of its non-GAAP measures to GAAP net income (loss) within the supplemental financial information in this release.

(a) Managed Accessibility represents the maximum amount we would access on the ABL Facility and is adjusted for eligible receivables plus eligible borrowing base cash measured for the applicable period. If eligible receivables fall below the threshold management uses to measure availability, which is 10% of the borrowing line, the credit agreement governing the ABL Facility permits adjustments from the eligible borrowing base cash to restricted cash prior to the compliance measurement date, which is 15 days from the period close.

(a)

Non-cash reserve changes reflect the net non-cash reserve charge for union and non-union vacation, with such non-cash reserve adjustment to be reduced by cash charges in a future period when paid.

(b)

Pursuant to the TL Agreements, Adjusted EBITDA limits certain adjustments in aggregate to 10% of the trailing-twelve-month ("TTM") Adjusted EBITDA, prior to the inclusion of amounts subject to the 10% threshold, for each period ending. Such adjustments include, but are not limited to, restructuring charges, integration costs, severance, and non-recurring charges. The limitation calculation is updated quarterly based on TTM Adjusted EBITDA, and any necessary adjustment resulting from this limitation, if applicable, will be presented here. The sum of the quarters may not necessarily equal TTM Adjusted EBITDA due to the expiration of adjustments from prior periods.
