Yellow Corporation (NASDAQ: YELL) reported results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2021. Operating revenue was $1.313 billion and operating income was $27.0 million. In comparison, operating revenue in the second quarter 2020 was $1.015 billion and operating loss was $4.6 million, which included a $6.0 million net gain on property disposals.

Net loss for second quarter 2021 was $9.4 million, or $0.18 per share, compared to net loss of $37.1 million, or $1.09 per share, in second quarter 2020.  

On a non-GAAP basis, the Company generated Adjusted EBITDA of $82.9 million in second quarter 2021, a $45.0 million increase compared to $37.9 million in the prior year comparable quarter (as detailed in the reconciliation below). Last twelve months Adjusted EBITDA as of June 30, 2021, was $216.0 million compared to $183.1 million as of June 30, 2020 (as detailed in the reconciliation below).

“I am pleased with the yield progress in the second quarter and look forward to continued operational efficiencies,” said Darren Hawkins, Chief Executive Officer. “Strong customer demand and an industry-wide shortage of qualified drivers are contributing to tight capacity and a favorable yield environment. Sequentially, LTL revenue per hundredweight increased 7.6% in the second quarter 2021 compared to first quarter 2021 and 16.2% compared to a year ago. This contributed to a nearly 30% increase in second quarter revenue compared to last year when the U.S. economy was severely impacted by the initial stages of the COVID-19 pandemic. With inventories below normal levels and U.S. manufacturing expected to return to full strength once the microchip shortage ends, demand for LTL capacity is positioned to remain strong into 2022.

“Our yield strategy is also helping us manage near-term headwinds from higher purchased transportation expense. We are executing plans to reduce the use of local cartage and over the road purchased transportation and expect to see improvement as we move forward.

“We are making steady progress towards One Yellow and the multi-year transformation remains on schedule. Two of our companies are now operating on One Yellow technology platform with the conversion of the others expected to be completed by the end of the year. Moving to a single technology platform sets the stage for a fully integrated network. I am excited for what One Yellow means for our customers, employees and shareholders. We will go to market as a super-regional carrier with enhanced service in the 1, 2 and 3-day lanes nationwide and provide customers with choice, simplicity, speed, visibility and reliability.

“We are continuing to invest in Yellow with one of the largest capital expenditure plans in Company history. Through the first half of 2021, we have acquired more than 1,800 tractors, 2,200 trailers and 400 containers. The investments are expected to enhance safety, improve fuel efficiency, reduce maintenance expense and augment our sustainability efforts. We maintained our strong liquidity position during the second quarter helping us narrow 2021 capital expenditures guidance range from $450 million to $550 million to $480 million to $530 million,” concluded Hawkins.

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.

  (a) Non-cash reserve changes reflect the net non-cash reserve charge for union and non-union vacation, with such non-cash reserve adjustment to be reduced by cash charges in a future period when paid.
   
  (b) Pursuant to the TL Agreements, Adjusted EBITDA limits certain adjustments in aggregate to 10% of the trailing-twelve-month ("TTM") Adjusted EBITDA, prior to the inclusion of amounts subject to the 10% threshold, for each period ending. Such adjustments include, but are not limited to, restructuring charges, integration costs, severance, and non-recurring charges. The limitation calculation is updated quarterly based on TTM Adjusted EBITDA, and any necessary adjustment resulting from this limitation, if applicable, will be presented here. The sum of the quarters may not necessarily equal TTM Adjusted EBITDA due to the expiration of adjustments from prior periods.
