YRC Worldwide Sinks On Restructuring Plan

Shares of  YRC Worldwide Inc.

The company said that the non-binding term sheet provides YRCW with new and additional capital, a substantial improvement in its liquidity position, conversion of some of its debt obligations into equity and the replacement or restructuring of certain of its debt obligations.  The term sheet contemplates a very substantial dilution of existing equity holders. The term sheet establishes a timeline to close the restructuring transaction by July 2011.
