Stocks in this article: YRCW

OVERLAND PARK, Kan., Nov. 12, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- YRC Worldwide Inc. (Nasdaq:YRCW) today reported financial results for the third quarter 2013.

Consolidated operating revenue for the third quarter ended September 30, 2013 was $1.253 billion, or $15.9 million (1.3%) higher than the $1.237 billion reported in the third quarter of 2012. At the same time, consolidated operating income decreased from $27.3 million to $5.8 million, a $21.5 million decrease from the third quarter of 2012. Operating income in 2013 included a $1.3 million loss on asset disposals compared to a $2.3 million gain on asset disposals in 2012. The company also reported adjusted EBITDA, on a non-GAAP basis, for the third quarter of 2013 of $62.4 million, a $16.4 million decrease from the $78.8 million adjusted EBITDA reported for the third quarter of 2012 (as detailed in the reconciliation below).

"The decline in year-over-year consolidated operational performance for the third quarter is primarily attributed to YRC Freight," said YRC Worldwide CEO and recently-appointed YRC Freight President James Welch. "Our third quarter performance was hindered by declines in service, manpower shortages and declines in yield. During the quarter, the YRC Freight network was 'out of cycle,' which caused our service to decline in certain lanes. Additionally, due to summer vacations and the movement of drivers resulting from the network optimization, we were short drivers in certain terminals which obviously impacted service in those areas. The shortage also resulted in higher than expected overtime pay, increased purchased transportation in certain lanes, and lower productivity. Finally, yield was negatively impacted by increases in our weight per shipment, loss of volume from higher yielding channels and declines in weight and inspection revenue."

"As a consequence of YRC Freight's performance, we made leadership changes in late September. Our renewed objective is to increase process discipline, execution and accountability at YRC Freight. Going forward, our focus will be on growing the business by aggressively pursuing new and profitable accounts while controlling our costs and improving our service levels," continued Welch.
