OVERLAND PARK, KAN. — YRC Worldwide Inc. (NASDAQ: YRCW) today reported financial results for the fourth quarter of 2011.

Consolidated operating revenue for the fourth quarter of 2011 was $1.212 billion, up 11.1% over 2010, and consolidated operating loss was $38 million, which included a $13 million loss on asset disposals, $4 million of restructuring professional fees and $9 million of letter of credit fees (as detailed in the reconciliation below). Excluding these items, on a non-GAAP basis 2011 fourth quarter operating loss would have been $12 million. As a comparison, the company reported consolidated operating revenue of $1.092 billion for the fourth quarter of 2010 and a consolidated operating loss of $28 million, which included a $3 million loss on asset disposals, $8 million of letter of credit fees and $6 million of restructuring professional fees (as detailed in the reconciliation below). Excluding these items, on a non-GAAP basis 2010 fourth quarter operating loss would have been $11 million.

The company also reported positive operating cash flow of $27 million for the fourth quarter of 2011, which included the $4 million of restructuring professional fees, and reported gross capital expenditures of $35 million. When excluding the above noted restructuring professional fees, the company reported on a non-GAAP basis adjusted free cash flow usage of $4 million for the fourth quarter of 2011 (as detailed in the reconciliation below). As a comparison, the company generated non-GAAP basis adjusted free cash flow of $11 million for the fourth quarter of 2010, which included the add back of $7 million of restructuring professional fees (as detailed in the reconciliation below).

“I wish to express my thanks to our employees for their efforts as we work to build a more service-centric culture focused on delivering quality and consistently reliable freight service for our customers,” said James Welch, chief executive officer of YRC Worldwide. “I am pleased with the renewed focus on customer service, but obviously not satisfied with our consolidated operating results. However, I am encouraged that our performance trends over the fourth quarter are consistent with or exceeding the consolidated operating plan created by our now autonomous operating companies,” stated Welch.

“Our plans to streamline and simplify the YRC Freight network during 2012 are designed to enable fewer touches of the freight, expedite delivery to our customers, reduce costs by network optimization, and allow YRC Freight to return to its core competency of handling LTL shipments moving in the 2-day to 5-day transit lanes which are generally between 500 and 3,500 miles,” stated Welch. “Our YRC Freight growth strategy will focus on delivering consistent, high-quality, long-haul service that is reliable and cost-effective with competitive transit times.”
