    Default Analysts weigh in on YRC's situation

    On Friday, analysts weighed in with assessments of what might happen next for the company.

    Jason Seidl and Matthew Elkott, analysts at New York financial services firm Cowen Group Inc. (Nasdaq: COWN), said in a Friday report that the negative vote could mean bankruptcy for YRC and could mean that its competitors will have a lot of new freight coming onto the market soon.

    The Cowen analysts, who don’t rate YRC’s stock, said they would not be surprised if big balance sheet problems lead to the conclusion that bankruptcy would be necessary to restructure YRC’s finances.

    “Bankruptcy cannot be ruled out at this point, in our opinion,” the report said. “Restructuring, however, will likely not work in the (less-than-truckload) industry.”

    I am also an analyst and it is time for me to weigh in. There will be no bankruptcy. There will be refinancing of debt. We will continue to operate as we have until MOU expires in March 2015. There is more than enough cash on hand to make debt payment next month if it is not refinanced in time. Tell your customers we have been in this business for over 80 years. We know freight. It is now time for senior management to prove why they receive such large salaries and performance bonuses.

    This is a little UNFAIR on your part as we know that is something that they just do not know how to do..

    Great post, if you could also by some miracle get management and supervisors to stop harassing you and encourage instead and offer a "nice job" once in a while, morale would improve I think. Get out there and convince shippers to stay with you.

    Their philosophy is that "a disgruntled employee is a productive employee". When the RDWY guys merged with us back in 09 they were hit with this full force, they thought they could make a change by trying to get along with management (LOL), they soon found this will never be because management is so brainwashed there's just no getting along. The plan was to get management to work along with us as we worked with them to make a better work environment (LOL) management screwed these guys so hard that they've turned these guys into good teamsters, management does some things right.
