Consolidated operating revenue for the third quarter of 2015 was $1.245 billion with consolidated operating income reported at $47.7 million, which included a $0.9 million loss on property disposals. As a comparison, the company reported consolidated operating revenue of $1.323 billion for the third quarter of 2014 with consolidated operating income of $26.7 million, which included a $0.2 million loss on property disposals.

Third Quarter 2015 Financial Highlights

  • On a non-GAAP basis, the company generated Adjusted EBITDA of $99.1 million for a consolidated Adjusted EBITDA margin of 8.0%, and a $17.5 million increase compared to the $81.6 million reported in the prior year comparable quarter (as detailed in the reconciliation below).
  • Last twelve month (LTM) Adjusted EBITDA increased to $344.3 million, an improvement of $118.1 million from the $226.2 million of LTM Adjusted EBITDA reported in the third quarter of 2014.
  • Improved yield from continued pricing discipline contributed to an operating ratio of 96.2 on a consolidated basis, which was a year-over-year improvement of 180-basis-points. Additionally, YRC Freight reported an operating ratio of 97.9, which was an improvement of 110-basis-points on a year-over-year basis, and a year-over-year improvement of 230-basis-points at the Regional segment, with an operating ratio of 92.6.
  • The total debt-to-Adjusted EBITDA ratio continues to improve, moving from 4.94 times just 12 months ago and 3.33 times last quarter to 3.15 times this quarter.
  • Continued to reinvest in the business spending $29.2 million in capital expenditures and entered into new operating leases for revenue equipment that have a capital value equivalent of $25.5 million for a total reinvestment of $54.7 million. The $54.7 million represents a $26.5 million increase over the $28.2 million investment in the third quarter of 2014. The vast majority of the investment was in tractors and technology.

Third Quarter 2015 Operational Highlights (year-over-year comparison)

  • Continued strategy of placing freight mix, yield improvements and profitability over market share and tonnage growth.
  • Tonnage per day decreased 6.2% at YRC Freight and decreased 3.5% for the Regional segment.
  • Excluding fuel surcharge, revenue per shipment increased 7.0% at YRC Freight and revenue per hundredweight increased by 5.8%. Including fuel surcharge, revenue per shipment increased 0.7% and revenue per hundredweight decreased by 0.4%.
  • At the Regionals, excluding fuel surcharge, revenue per shipment increased 5.0% and revenue per hundredweight increased by 4.1%. Including fuel surcharge, revenue per shipment decreased 0.7% and revenue per hundredweight decreased by 1.5%.
  • Workers’ compensation expense decreased by $4.5 million due to decreased claim frequency in 2015 driven by our safety initiatives but slightly offset by negative development of prior years’ claims.

“During the third quarter of this year, we continued to stay committed to our strategy of placing pricing improvements and profitability ahead of tonnage growth,” said James Welch, chief executive officer of YRC Worldwide. “We stayed focused, we stayed disciplined, we invested in our people and we invested in the business. As a result, operating, financial and safety performance improved. We are pleased to see the positive results of successfully implementing our strategy and staying the course, and we plan to continue focusing on operational improvements while reinvesting back into our people, equipment and technology,” concluded Welch.

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 (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, restructuring professional fees, nonrecurring consulting fees, expenses associated with certain lump sum payments to our IBT employees and results of permitted dispositions and discontinued operations among other items as defined in the company’s 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. However, these financial measures should not be construed as better measurements than net income or earnings per share, 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 fund restructuring professional fees, nonrecurring consulting 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 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 certain 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, EBTIDA and Adjusted EBITDA 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 EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA as secondary measures. The company has provided reconciliations of its non-GAAP measures, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA, to GAAP net income and operating income (loss) within the supplemental financial information in this release.
