Roadrunner Transportation Systems, Inc. ("Roadrunner") (NYSE:RRTS), a leading asset-right transportation and asset-light logistics service provider, announced today that it has signed an extension to its interim credit facility amendment, as it continues to make progress with its lender group on a previously-announced long-term loan amendment.

The agreement temporarily extends the working capital loans and forbearance provisions of the interim amendment announced on March 6, providing the company with the liquidity and financial flexibility to continue operating as usual while completing the long-term loan amendment.

"Today's announcement marks another step towards our long-term credit solution," said Curt Stoelting, President and Chief Operating Officer of Roadrunner. "Extending the interim agreement helps us to remain focused on serving our customers and clients while we conclude successful negotiations with our lender group."

The company said that it has delayed filing its restated financial statements and its 2016 Form 10-K with the Securities and Exchange Commission until after completion of the long-term loan amendment.

Roadrunner also announced that Peter R. Armbruster, Chief Financial Officer since 2005, is leaving the company. The company expects to make an announcement in the near future regarding a successor.
