YRC Worldwide Reports 2014 Fourth Quarter and Full Year Earnings

OVERLAND PARK, Kan., Feb. 5, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- YRC Worldwide Inc. (Nasdaq:YRCW) today reported financial results for the fourth quarter and for the full calendar year of 2014.

Fourth Quarter Results

Consolidated operating revenue for the fourth quarter of 2014 was $1.218 billion, a $10.0 million increase over the $1.208 billion reported for the fourth quarter of 2013. At the same time, consolidated operating income increased $32.8 million, from an operating loss of $1.6 million, to operating income of $31.2 million. Operating income in 2014 included a $5.8 million gain on asset disposals compared to a $0.3 million gain on asset disposals in 2013.

The company also reported, on a non-GAAP basis, adjusted EBITDA of $77.0 million for the fourth quarter of 2014, a $18.2 million increase from the $58.8 million of adjusted EBITDA reported for the fourth quarter of 2013 (as detailed in the reconciliation below).

YRC Freight Fourth Quarter Results

Operating revenue for the fourth quarter of 2014 for YRC Freight was $795.5 million, an $18.8 million increase over the $776.7 million reported in the fourth quarter of 2013. At the same time, operating income increased $39.9 million, from an operating loss of $15.4 million, to operating income of $24.5 million, and adjusted EBITDA increased $26.6 million, from $17.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2013 to $44.0 million in 2014.

"During the fourth quarter of 2014, YRC Freight experienced yield growth compared to the prior year of 5.7% including fuel surcharge and 7.3% excluding fuel surcharge," said James Welch, chief executive officer of YRC Worldwide. "On a year-over-year basis during the quarter, YRC Freight achieved total revenue per hundredweight (including fuel surcharge) increases of 4.8% in October, 6.9% in November and 5.7% in December. The year-over-year increase in yield continued the trend that began in the third quarter and continued to pick up momentum, especially when compared to the results excluding fuel surcharge and is a testament of improving base rates and fundamental pricing. Additionally, on a year-over-year basis, YRC Freight reported tonnage per day decreases of 1.6% in October, 3.2% in November and 3.2% in December. The decreases in tonnage were a result of prioritizing yield improvement and profitability over volume.

"YRC Freight continues to improve profitability by executing on its operational initiatives and significantly increasing technology investments," continued Welch. "In 2015, the lower price of diesel and the resulting lower fuel surcharge revenue will be a headwind for the entire LTL industry. Going forward, we will continue growing base rates and getting paid for the service we provide while continuing to realize the benefits of investments already made in technology, safety, driver recruitment and employee engagement," stated Welch.

Regional Transportation Fourth Quarter Results

Operating revenue for the fourth quarter of 2014 for Regional Transportation was $422.2 million, an $8.8 million decrease from the $431.0 million reported in the fourth quarter of 2013. At the same time, operating income decreased $12.1 million, from operating income of $22.7 million to operating income of $10.6 million, and adjusted EBITDA decreased $7.5 million, from $40.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2013 to $33.2 million in 2014.

"The fourth quarter results for the Regional segment were negatively impacted by 4 fewer workdays compared to the prior year and approximately $10.2 million of additional year-over-year expense related to liability claims and an additional $2.0 million of workers' compensation expense," said Welch. "We pride ourselves on getting our employees home safely every night, and in 2015, we will increase our intensity and investments around our safety initiatives, not just at the Regional companies, but across the entire organization.

"During the quarter, the Regional companies experienced yield growth compared to the prior year of 3.5% including fuel surcharge and 4.8% excluding fuel surcharge," continued Welch. "On a monthly year-over-year basis, the Regionals achieved total revenue per hundredweight (including fuel surcharge) increases of 2.7% in October, 2.8% in November and 4.9% in December, and reported tonnage per day increases of 0.6% in October and 2.5% in November and a 0.3% decrease in December," said Welch. "Improving base rates, operating efficiencies and safety performance will continue to be a focus for the Regional companies as they too will be challenged with the lower fuel price environment," concluded Welch.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Adjusted EBITDA (defined in our credit facilities as Consolidated 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, expenses associated with certain lump sum payments to our IBT employees 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 or fund our lump sum payments to our IBT employees required under the ratified MOU;
  • 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 its 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.
