Trusted advisor to YRC Worldwide Inc.

On December 31, 2009, YRC Worldwide Inc. (“YRC,” Nasdaq: YRCW) completed a $470 million debt-for-equity exchange offer, which resulted in a significantly improved liquidity profile. On February 23, 2010, Moelis & Company executed a private placement of $70 million of 6% Convertible Senior Notes. Proceeds from the issuance were used to satisfy the remaining amounts outstanding on the company’s 8 1/2% Guaranteed Notes due April 15, 2010, with excess proceeds available to be used for general working capital purposes. The two transactions were part of a broad restructuring effort which also included ABS facility, credit facility and union agreement amendments and provided YRC with runway to execute its business plan. Moelis & Company acted as financial advisor, joint lead dealer manager and joint lead placement agent on the transactions and continues to serve as financial advisor on YRC’s broader restructuring efforts.
