YRC Worldwide Reports Third Quarter 2018 Results

Results include Operating Income of $41.2 million and Adjusted EBITDA of $84.2 million

OVERLAND PARK, Kan., Nov. 01, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- YRC Worldwide Inc. (NASDAQ: YRCW) reported consolidated operating revenue for third quarter 2018 of $1.304 billion and consolidated operating income of $41.2 million, which included a $1.9 million net loss on property disposals. As a comparison, for the third quarter 2017, the Company’s results included operating revenue of $1.251 billion and consolidated operating income of $43.4 million, which included a $1.3 million net loss on property disposals.

Financial Highlights

  • In third quarter 2018, net income was $2.9 million compared to net income of $3.0 million in third quarter 2017.
     
  • On a non-GAAP basis, the Company generated consolidated Adjusted EBITDA of $84.2 million in third quarter 2018, an increase of $2.8 million compared to $81.4 million for the same period in 2017 (as detailed in the reconciliation below). Last twelve month (LTM) consolidated Adjusted EBITDA was $289.2 million compared to $273.4 million a year ago.
     
  • The total debt-to-Adjusted EBITDA ratio for third quarter 2018 improved to 3.13 times compared to 3.52 times for third quarter 2017.
     
  • Total purchased transportation expense increased $14.3 million in third quarter 2018 when compared to the same period last year, which is comprised of increases in long-term equipment lease expense of $9.3 million and third-party costs for customer specific logistics solutions of $8.4 million. These cost increases are consistent with our leasing strategy to upgrade revenue equipment in our fleet and provide expanded solutions that complement our existing network. Offsetting these strategic cost increases include a $6.2 million decrease in local purchased transportation and short-term rental costs due to continued execution of cost control measures.
     
  • Third quarter 2018 results included a non-union pension settlement charge at YRC Freight of $7.2 million. The pension settlement charge was triggered due to the amount of lump sum benefit payments distributed from plan assets in 2018. The lump sum benefit payments reduce pension obligations and are funded from existing pension plan assets and therefore do not impact the Company’s cash balance nor liquidity. The non-cash expense is excluded from operating income and Adjusted EBITDA.
  • Reinvestment in the business continued with $45.9 million in capital expenditures and new operating leases for revenue equipment with a capital value equivalent of $32.2 million, for a total of $78.1 million, which is equal to 6.0% of operating revenue for third quarter 2018. The total represents a $30.3 million increase over the $47.8 million investment in third quarter 2017. The majority of the investment was in tractors, trailers and technology.

Operational Highlights

  • The consolidated operating ratio for third quarter 2018 was 96.8 compared to 96.5 in third quarter 2017. The operating ratio at YRC Freight was 97.0 compared to 97.1 for the same period in 2017. The Regional segment’s third quarter 2018 operating ratio was 96.2 compared to 95.4 a year ago.
     
  • Third quarter 2018 tonnage per day decreased 4.0% at YRC Freight and decreased 5.0% at the Regional segment compared to third quarter 2017.
     
  • At YRC Freight, including fuel surcharge, third quarter 2018 revenue per hundredweight increased 7.1% and revenue per shipment increased 6.8% when compared to the same period in 2017.  Excluding fuel surcharge, revenue per hundredweight increased 4.8% and revenue per shipment increased 4.4%.
     
  • At the Regional segment, including fuel surcharge, third quarter 2018 revenue per hundredweight increased 8.5% and revenue per shipment increased 10.6% when compared to the same period in 2017. Excluding fuel surcharge, revenue per hundredweight increased 6.3% and revenue per shipment increased 8.4%.
     
  • In third quarter 2018, third-party liability claims expense increased by $5.5 million compared to the third quarter 2017, primarily due to the occurrence of a significant claim in the third quarter.

Liquidity Update

  • At September 30, 2018, the Company had cash and cash equivalents and Managed Accessibility (as defined in the Company’s most recently filed periodic reports on Forms 10-K and 10-Q) under its ABL facility totaling $225.2 million compared to $209.8 million as of September 30, 2017.
     
  • For the nine months ended September 30, 2018, cash provided by operating activities was $157.9 million compared to cash provided by operating activities of $66.6 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2017, an improvement of $91.3 million.
     
  • At September 30, 2018, the Company’s outstanding debt was $904.4 million, a decrease of $58.0 million compared to approximately $962.4 million as of September 30, 2017.

“Pricing discipline and demand trends remained strong in third quarter with year-over-year growth in operating revenue, revenue per hundredweight and revenue per shipment statistics, both including and excluding fuel surcharge,” stated Darren Hawkins, chief executive officer of YRC Worldwide. “I am pleased with our focused discipline on growing yield and securing the right freight mix for our networks, while balancing our capacity constraints, minimizing third-party costs for local purchased transportation and reducing short-term rentals.”

“We continue to prioritize fleet replenishments which have resulted in overall cost reductions for vehicle maintenance expense and improved fuel miles per gallon.  Through nine months, we have taken delivery of more than 1,000 tractors with approximately another 300 expected in the fourth quarter of this year. We have also taken delivery of more than 2,300 trailers in the first nine months of 2018, with approximately another 1,500 expected the rest of the year.” concluded Hawkins.

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: a non-GAAP measure that reflects EBITDA, and further adjusts for net gains or losses on certain property disposals, letter of credit expenses, restructuring charges, transaction costs related to issuances of debt, nonrecurring consulting fees, permitted dispositions and discontinued operations, equity-based compensation expense, non-union pension settlement charges, and expenses associated with certain lump sum payments to our union employees, among other items, as defined in our credit facilities. 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 the company’s credit facilities and to pay certain executive 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 covenants in our term loan credit agreement as this measure is calculated as prescribed in our term loan credit agreement and serves as a driving component of key financial covenants. 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, 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, although Adjusted EBITDA excludes employee equity-based compensation expense when presenting our ongoing operating performance for a particular period;
  • 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.
