Yellow Corporation Reports Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2021 Results

Strong Fourth Quarter Results Include Operating Income of $55.8 Million and a 95.7% Operating Ratio

 

OVERLAND PARK, Kan., February 2, 2022 – Yellow Corporation (NASDAQ: YELL) reported results for fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2021.

 

Fourth quarter operating revenue was $1.309 billion and operating income was $55.8 million. In comparison, operating revenue in fourth quarter 2020 was $1.165 billion and operating income was $13.7 million.

 

Net loss for fourth quarter 2021 was $44.7 million, or $0.88 per share, compared to net loss of $18.7 million, or $0.37 per share in fourth quarter 2020. Excluding the impact of the Partial Pension Annuitization (defined below), fourth quarter 2021 net income was $10.2 million, or $0.20 per share.

 

During the fourth quarter 2021, the Company’s qualified non-union pension plans entered into a contract for a group annuity to transfer obligation to pay the remaining retirement benefits of approximately 3,700 plan participants to an insurance company (the “Partial Pension Annuitization”). The transfer included approximately $250 million in both plan obligations and plan assets. As a result of the Partial Pension Annuitization, the Company recorded a non-cash, non-operating settlement loss of $54.9 million, or $1.08 per share, reflecting the accelerated recognition of unamortized losses in these plans from the obligation that was settled.

On a non-GAAP basis, the Company generated Adjusted EBITDA of $115.5 million in fourth quarter 2021, a $57.6 million increase compared to $57.9 million in the prior year comparable quarter (as detailed in the reconciliation below).

Operating revenue for full year 2021 was $5.122 billion and operating income was $103.6 million. This compares to full year 2020 operating revenue of $4.514 billion and operating income of $56.5 million, which included a $45.3 million net gain on property disposals.

Full year net loss for 2021 was $109.1 million, or $2.15 per share, compared to net loss in 2020 of $53.5 million, or $1.28 per share. Excluding the impact of the Partial Pension Annuitization, full year 2021 net loss was $54.2 million, or $1.07 per share.

Full year 2021 Adjusted EBITDA was $306.0 million compared to $191.9 million in 2020 (as detailed in the reconciliation below).

“In the fourth quarter, we remained focused on the initiatives that led to improving financial performance during the year,” said Darren Hawkins, Chief Executive Officer. “We executed our yield strategy to improve profitability of the freight moving through our network. In the fourth quarter year-over-year LTL revenue per hundredweight increased 23.3% contributing to an increase in operating revenue of 12.4%. In addition, we took steps to reduce the use of purchased transportation and it was down to 14.5% of revenue in the fourth quarter. Overall, these efforts led to an operating ratio improvement of 310 basis points in the fourth quarter compared to a year ago.

“We also recently completed the conversion of our final operating company to the One Yellow technology platform, as planned and on schedule. This is a significant milestone on the multi-year journey to One Yellow and allows us to continue transforming North America’s second largest LTL network. This includes the integration of the linehaul

 


 

network, to support both regional and long-haul service as well as the optimization of local pickup and delivery operations to eliminate duplicity. When completed, our customers will benefit by interacting with one company for both regional and long-haul shipments leading to improved asset utilization, enhanced network efficiencies and cost savings.

“Yellow concluded one of the largest capital expenditure plans in its history this year that included investments in tractors, trailers, technology, box trucks, containers, liftgates and other assets. The high level of reinvestment began in the fourth quarter 2020 and through the end of 2021 approximately 17% of the tractors and 9% of the trailers in the fleet have been upgraded. The newer tractors will run the highest number of miles in the fleet, fully leveraging the environmental benefits. Compared to the tractors that are being replaced, the newer units are approximately 30% more fuel efficient and that is expected to result in a corresponding reduction in CO2 emissions. We ended 2021 in a strong liquidity position and in 2022, we expect capital expenditures to be in the range of $325 million to $400 million.

“I am extremely proud of the tremendous effort the Yellow team of more than 30,000 truckers made in 2021. They remain focused on meeting the needs of our customers while making remarkable progress on the transformation to a super-regional carrier. I am excited about the opportunity ahead of us and what the momentum that we carry into 2022 means for our customers, employees and shareholders,” concluded Hawkins.

 

Financial Update

In fourth quarter 2021, the Company invested $54.7 million in capital expenditures. This compares to $99.2 million in capital expenditures in fourth quarter 2020. Full year 2021 capital expenditures were $497.6 million compared to $140.6 million in 2020.

 

Operational Update

The operating ratio for fourth quarter 2021 was 95.7 compared to 98.8 in fourth quarter 2020.
Including fuel surcharge, fourth quarter 2021 LTL revenue per hundredweight increased 23.3% and LTL revenue per shipment increased 20.3% compared to the same period in 2020. Excluding fuel surcharge, fourth quarter LTL revenue per hundredweight increased 16.2% and LTL revenue per shipment increased 13.4%.
Fourth quarter 2021 LTL tonnage per workday decreased 10% when compared to fourth quarter 2020.

 

Liquidity Update

The Company’s available liquidity, which is comprised of cash and cash equivalents and Managed Accessibility (as detailed in the supplemental information provided below) under its ABL facility, was $358.8 million as of December 31, 2021, compared to $440.2 million a year ago.
The Company’s outstanding debt was $1.615 billion as of December 31, 2021, an increase of $330.5 million compared to $1.284 billion as of December 31, 2020.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

EBITDA is a non-GAAP measure that reflects the company’s earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization expense. Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP measure that reflects EBITDA, and further adjusts for letter of credit fees, equity-based compensation expense, net gains or losses on property disposals, restructuring charges, transaction costs related to issuances of debt, non-recurring consulting fees, non-cash impairment charges and the gains or losses from permitted dispositions, discontinued operations, and certain non-cash expenses, charges and losses (provided that if any of such non-cash expenses, charges or losses represents an accrual or reserve for potential cash items in any future period, the cash payment in respect thereof in such future period will be subtracted from Adjusted EBITDA in such future period to the extent paid). Adjusted EBITDA as used herein is defined as Consolidated EBITDA in our UST Credit Agreements and Term Loan Agreement (collectively, the “TL Agreements”). EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are used for internal management purposes as a financial measure that reflects the company’s core operating performance. In addition, management uses Adjusted EBITDA to measure compliance with financial covenants in our TL Agreements and to determine certain incentive compensation. We believe our presentation of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA is useful to investors and other users as these measures represent key supplemental information our management uses to compare and evaluate our core underlying business results, particularly in light of our leverage position and the capital-intensive nature of our business. Further, EBITDA is a measure that is commonly used by other companies in our industry and provides a comparison for investors to evaluate the performance of the companies in the industry. Additionally, Adjusted EBITDA helps investors to understand how the company is tracking against our financial covenants in our TL Agreements.

EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA have the following limitations:

 

EBITDA does not reflect the interest expense or the cash requirements necessary to service interest or fund principal payments on our outstanding debt;

 

Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect the interest expense or the cash requirements necessary to service interest or fund principal payments on our outstanding debt, letter of credit expenses, restructuring charges, transaction costs related to debt, non-cash charges, charges or losses (subject to the conditions above), or nonrecurring consulting fees, among other items;

 

Although depreciation and amortization are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated and amortized will have to be replaced in the future and EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not reflect any cash requirements for such replacements;

 

Equity-based compensation is an element of our long-term incentive compensation program for certain employees, although Adjusted EBITDA excludes employee equity-based compensation expense when presenting our ongoing operating performance for a particular period; and

 

Other companies in our industry may calculate Adjusted EBITDA differently than we do, limiting its usefulness as a comparative measure.

 

Because of these limitations, our non-GAAP measures should not be considered a substitute for performance measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. We compensate for these limitations by relying primarily on our GAAP results and using our non-GAAP measures as secondary measures. The company has provided reconciliations of its non-GAAP measures to GAAP net income (loss) within the supplemental financial information in this release.

Managed Accessibility represents the maximum amount we would access on the ABL Facility and is adjusted for eligible receivables plus eligible borrowing base cash measured for the applicable period. Based on the eligible receivable’s management uses to measure availability, which is 10% of the borrowing line, the credit agreement governing the ABL Facility permits adjustments from eligible borrowing base cash to restricted cash prior to the compliance measurement date which is 15 days from the period close.
