Financially strong and working to stay that way
The media is filled with the woes of our nation's economy, and certainly the strain our customers experience has an effect on USF Holland. Despite the noise in the marketplace, Holland and our parent company,
YRC Worldwide, have reasons to feel confident about our future. Here's why.
While YRC Worldwide borrowed money, primarily for its acquisitions of Roadway and the regional companies, it remains in good standing with all the conditions of those loan agreements. As of September 30th, the enterprise paid off over $50 million in loans this year alone, and we've made arrangements to cover all significant loan due dates through March 2010.
YRC Worldwide is improving its balance sheet by reducing the amount of money it owes. For example, lower interest-rate loans were used to pay off some loans that had higher rates. We also issued shares of common stock in exchange for loan amounts. While YRC Worldwide has been successful in reducing the amount of money owed since acquiring Roadway and the regional companies, we think the current economy makes this an even smarter practice.
The nature of our financial agreements, the revenues from the YRC Worldwide brands, and other activities, give the company a cushion in terms of positive cash flow, which we expect to continue through the rest of the year. And while the corporation's integration efforts do not affect USF Holland, combining
Yellow Transportation and Roadway is expected to save the enterprise $200 million by the end of 2009, allowing us to further reduce our level of debt during 2009.
No doubt, many companies are distracted by financial concerns, but
USF Holland continues to focus on the future by providing exceptional service to our customers. Read more.
