YRC WORLDWIDE INVESTOR PRESENTATION Investor presentation November 2018 Exhibit 99.1
YRC WORLDWIDE INVESTOR PRESENTATION The information in this presentation is summary in nature and may not contain all information that is important to you. The Recipient acknowledges and agrees that (i) no representation or warranty regarding the material contained in this presentation is made by YRC Worldwide Inc. (the “Company” or “we”) or any of its affiliates and (ii) that the Company and its affiliates have no obligation to update or supplement this presentation or otherwise provide additional information. This presentation is for discussion and reference purposes only and does not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy any securities or other property. This presentation contains “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Forward-looking statements relate to future events or future performance of the Company and include statements about the Company’s expectations or forecasts for future periods and events. Specific forward-looking statements can be identified by the fact that they do not relate strictly to historical or current facts and include, without limitation, words such as “may,” “will,” “should,” “expect,” “plan,” “anticipate,” “believe,” “estimate,” “predict,” “potential” or “continue,” the negative of such terms or other comparable terminology. We disclaim any obligation to update those statements, except as applicable law may require us to do so, and we caution you not to rely unduly on them. We have based those forward-looking statements on our current expectations and assumptions about future events, and while our management considers those expectations and assumptions to be reasonable, they are inherently subject to significant business, economic, competitive, regulatory and other risks, contingencies and uncertainties, most of which are difficult to predict and many of which are beyond our control. Therefore, actual results may differ materially and adversely from those expressed in any forward-looking statements. Factors that might cause or contribute to such differences include, but are not limited to, those we discuss in the “Risk Factors” section of our Annual Report on Form 10-K and in other reports we file with the Securities and Exchange Commission. This presentation includes the presentation of Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure. Adjusted EBITDA is not a measure of financial performance in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles and may exclude items that are significant in understanding and assessing our financial results. Therefore, this measure should not be considered in isolation or as an alternative to net income from operations, cash flows from operations, earnings per fully-diluted share or other measures of profitability, liquidity or performance under generally accepted accounting principles. We believe our presentation of 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. 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 therein and serves as a driving component of our key financial covenants. You should be aware that this presentation of Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly-titled measures used by other companies. A reconciliation of this measure to the most comparable measures presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles has been included in this presentation.

YRC WORLDWIDE INVESTOR PRESENTATION Employees covered by collective bargaining agreements. Required contractual contributions anticipated to be an average of $2.22 per hour in 2018(a). 2018 cash contributions to be approximately $105 million(a). Expense included in EBITDA. Not impacted by changes in interest rates. Contributions are made to 32 multi-employer pension plans with various levels of underfunding. Pension plans are managed by independent trustees. If the Company were to withdraw from or there was a termination of all of the multi-employer pension plans, the Company’s portion of the contingent liability would be an estimated $9 billion. However…YRC Worldwide has, and expects to continue, making its required contractual contributions to the multi-employer pension plans thus SIGNIFICANTLY minimizing the potential of any material contingent liability becoming due. Additionally, to our knowledge, there are no regulations that would change our average per hour contribution for the remaining term of the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) as that is contractually agreed to by and between the Company and the individual funds nor are we aware of any regulations that would materially change the status or amount of our contingent liability. As long as we continue to pay what is contractually agreed to, there should be no issue. (a) The estimated contribution amount is subject to potential increases under the 2014 MOU Extension Agreement if the Company’s health and welfare contributions made to maintain the current level of health and welfare benefits are less than the health and welfare contribution amounts already negotiated. Multi-employer pension plans
YRC WORLDWIDE INVESTOR PRESENTATION Certain employees not covered by collective bargaining agreements. Plans closed to new participants effective January 1, 2004 with benefit accrual for active employees frozen effective July 1, 2008. Future funding requirements are primarily driven by movements in plan asset returns and discount rate. Long-term strategy is to reduce the risk of the underfunded plans. On average, the single-employer pension expense from 2015 – 2017 was approximately $17 million per year, excluding the expense recognition of settlements from lump sum payouts. Single-employer pension settlement charge at YRC Freight of $7.2 million in 3Q 2018, with another charge expected in 4Q 2018. These charges will not impact the Company’s cash balance or liquidity and will be excluded from Adjusted EBITDA and operating income. Reflects a $12.2 million contribution due in January 2017 that was paid in December 2016 Reflects a $14.0 million contribution due in January 2018 that was paid in December 2017 Single-employer pension plans (a) (b)

YRC WORLDWIDE INVESTOR PRESENTATION Focused on improving cash flows while simultaneously increasing reinvestment into the Company. Cash flow Free cash flow = operating cash flow less acquisitions of property and equipment, cash proceeds from disposals The Company adopted ASU 2016-09, Improvements to Employee Share-Based Payment Accounting, beginning in January 1, 2017, with a retrospective application. The new standard requires an employer to classify as a financing activity in its statement of cash flows the cash paid to a taxing authority when shares are withheld to satisfy the employer’s statutory income tax withholding obligation. As a result of adoption, the Company reclassified “Payments for tax withheld on share-based compensation” as financing activities in the statements of consolidated cash flows for 2013 – 2017 annual and quarterly periods, as applicable.
