YRC Worldwide Reports First Quarter 2019 Results

Company to Implement Network Optimization to Drive Revenue and Margin Expansion

OVERLAND PARK, Kan., May 8, 2019 — YRC Worldwide Inc. (NASDAQ: YRCW) reported consolidated operating revenue for first quarter 2019 of $1.182 billion and consolidated operating loss of $31.7 million, which included a $1.6 million net loss on property disposals. As a comparison, for the first quarter 2018, the Company’s results included operating revenue of $1.215 billion and consolidated operating loss of $4.3 million, which included a $3.2 million net loss on property disposals.

“Our primary focus during first quarter was securing a new labor agreement that was scheduled to expire on March 31, 2019. I am pleased to announce that on May 3, 2019, our employees approved the national agreement and 26 of the 27 applicable supplemental agreements,” said Darren Hawkins, Chief Executive Officer of YRC Worldwide. “Leading up to the approval of the five-year agreement, we experienced the effects of some customer concerns around the uncertainty of the negotiations process. While we cannot precisely quantify the revenue loss related to the labor agreement, our first quarter results were adversely impacted.”

Hawkins added, “During the first quarter, our freight operations were negatively impacted by severe winter weather events. Approximately half of the 63-day quarter was impacted by weather events for both YRC Freight and our largest Regional carrier, Holland, resulting in limited or closed operations across our 384-facility network. Holland was significantly impacted during a two-week period in late January, in which more than 25% of its’ network was down or severely limited.

“As we move through 2019, we will continue to prioritize yield over tonnage. We believe the new labor agreement provides both long-term value and opportunity for our employees, our customers, and our shareholders and it will be our number one priority to execute on the new contractual operational capabilities.

“At the very core of our 2019 strategy is network optimization. The initiative has multiple layers – with the primary objectives of enhancing service, creating opportunities for productivity improvements, and streamlining our cost structure as we seek to eliminate inefficiencies across the network, providing the potential for revenue growth and margin expansion,” said Hawkins.
