YRC Worldwide Reports Second Quarter 2018 Results

Results include Operating Income of $50.9 million and Adjusted EBITDA of $100.8 million

OVERLAND PARK, Kan., August 2, 2018 — YRC Worldwide Inc. (NASDAQ: YRCW) reported consolidated operating revenue for second quarter 2018 of $1.326 billion and consolidated operating income of $50.9 million, which included a $2.2 million net loss on property disposals. As a comparison, for the second quarter 2017, the Company’s results included operating revenue of $1.261 billion and consolidated operating income of $53.2 million, which included a $1.0 million net gain on property disposals.

Financial Highlights



In second quarter 2018, net income was $14.4 million compared to net income of $19.0 million in second quarter 2017.



On a non-GAAP basis, the Company generated consolidated Adjusted EBITDA of $100.8 million in second quarter 2018, an increase of $9.7 million compared to $91.1 million for the same period in 2017 (as detailed in the reconciliation below). Last twelve month (LTM) consolidated Adjusted EBITDA was $286.4 million compared to $277.5 million a year ago.



The total debt-to-Adjusted EBITDA ratio for second quarter 2018 improved to 3.18 times compared to 3.61 times for second quarter 2017.



Purchased transportation expense increased $17.6 million in second quarter 2018 when compared to the same period last year. The increase was primarily due to a $10.2 million increase in equipment lease expense of which $8.4 million was attributable to long-term rentals in conjunction with the Company’s strategy to reinvest in its fleet. The purchased transportation results also include a $9.1 million increase in third-party costs for customer specific logistics solutions. These increases were partially offset by a $2.7 million decrease from reduced usage of local purchased transportation.



Reinvestment in the business continued with $23.0 million in capital expenditures and new operating leases for revenue equipment with a capital value equivalent of $38.6 million, for a total of $61.6 million, which is equal to 4.6% of operating revenue for second quarter 2018. The total represents a $32.0 million increase over the $29.6 million investment in second quarter 2017. The majority of the investment was in tractors, trailers and technology.
