TAMPA, Fla., Dec. 21, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Quality Distribution, Inc. (Nasdaq:QLTY) ("Quality") announced today that its wholly owned subsidiaries, Quality Distribution, LLC ("QD LLC") and QD Capital Corporation ("QD Capital" and, together with QD LLC, the "Issuers") intend to redeem a portion of their 11.75% Senior Subordinated PIK Notes due 2013 (the "2013 PIK Notes"). The Issuers have issued a notice of redemption pursuant to the indenture for the 2013 PIK Notes stating that they intend to redeem $9,965,000 aggregate principal amount of such 2013 PIK Notes on January 20, 2011 (the "Redemption Date").

Additionally, Quality recently acquired or agreed to acquire $2,535,000 of its 2013 PIK Notes through open market purchases.

"With the execution of our November 2010 refinancing transaction we gained significant flexibility to utilize our free cash flow and revolver capacity to reduce higher cost debt," commented Joe Troy, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer. "Given our strong liquidity position, it was an opportune time to reduce our cost of capital and improve our debt profile."
