YRC Worldwide Reports Unaudited Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2019 Results

OVERLAND PARK, Kan., Feb. 04, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- YRC Worldwide Inc. (YRCW) reported consolidated operating revenue for fourth quarter 2019 of $1.160 billion and consolidated operating income of $9.8 million, which included a $10.1 million net gain on property sales. As a comparison, for the fourth quarter 2018, the Company’s results included operating revenue of $1.247 billion and consolidated operating income of $55.1 million, which included a $28.1 million net gain on property disposals.

Consolidated operating revenue for the year ended December 31, 2019 was $4.871 billion and consolidated operating income of $16.2 million, which included a $13.7 million net gain on property disposals, and $8.2 million for a non-cash impairment charge related to the write-down of an intangible asset. This compares to full year 2018 consolidated operating revenue of $5.092 billion and consolidated operating income of $142.9 million, which included a $20.8 million net gain on property disposals.

Net loss for fourth quarter 2019 was $15.3 million, or $0.46 per share compared to net income of $17.5 million, or $0.52 per share, in fourth quarter 2018.  Full year net loss for 2019 was $104.0 million, or $3.13 per share, which included $11.2 million loss on extinguishment of debt associated with a refinancing of the term loan agreement, compared to net income of $20.2 million, or $0.60 per share for full year 2018.

“Despite a challenging industrial backdrop in the back half of 2019, it was a very active year for us as we kicked off our multi-year enterprise transformation strategy,” said Darren Hawkins, Chief Executive Officer of YRC Worldwide Inc. “Our strategy will build on the strengths and breadth of our regional and national networks and the equally respected brand names associated with each and is intended to enhance our customer experience with the end goal of improving our profitability and cash flow.”

During 2019, we completed four initial yet foundational components of that strategy:

  1. Ratified a new 5-year labor contract;
  2. Refinanced our term loan with improved and more flexible terms;
  3. Reorganized our leadership team to streamline decision making and enhance execution across all functional areas of the organization; and
  4. Completed the reorganization of the enterprise-wide sales force.

As we move into 2020, we remain intensely focused on our commitments to improve the longer-term earnings potential of this Company. The next phase of our transformation will focus on:

  1. Operational Optimization:  Structurally improve the network to increase asset utilization, expand service offerings and leverage the flexibilities gained with our new labor contract.
  2. Technology Migration:  Improving our customer experience, operational flexibility and ability to execute our strategic objectives by consolidating disparate company systems onto a single platform.
  3. Facility Evaluation:  Rationalizing the number of physical locations in the network while maintaining geographic coverage and service levels. While we will have fewer physical locations, we will continue to cover the same geographic service areas. We expect this will increase density, reduce mileage, facilities and equipment and better serve our customers. During 2019, we met our goal of consolidating 25 service centers and continue to evaluate our facilities to meet current and future business expectations.             

“My vision is that our customers will have access to 5 brands through one network and one enterprise wide service offering. As we work through the balance of the year and early 2021, we will be laser focused on executing the initiatives that will allow us to attack the market as one,” concluded Hawkins.

Review of Financial Results

YRC Worldwide Inc. will host a conference call with the investment community today, Tuesday February 4, 2020, beginning at 5:00 p.m. ET. 

A live audio webcast of the conference call and presentation slides will be available on YRC Worldwide Inc.’s website www.yrcw.com. A replay of the webcast will also be available at www.yrcw.com.

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 Consolidated EBITDA in such future period to the extent paid). Adjusted EBITDA as used herein is defined as Consolidated EBITDA in our new term loan facility entered into September 11, 2019. 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 credit facilities and to determine certain management and employee bonus 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 both on a consolidated basis and across our business segments, 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 covenant in our term loan credit agreement. However, these financial measures should not be construed as better measurements than net income, as defined by generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP).

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) and operating income (loss) within the supplemental financial information in this release.
