Yellow Trucking Mulls Revival Amid Asset Auction
Amid bankruptcy, Yellow weighs revival bid and auction of assets including a significant real-estate portfolio.
Bankrupt trucking company Yellow, formerly a major player in the less-than-truckload sector, is considering a revival bid led by Sarah Riggs Amico of Jack Cooper Transport. This bid competes against offers for Yellow's assets, including a $1.525 billion bid from Estes Express Lines for its real estate. Yellow, which collapsed this summer, owes significant debts to secured creditors and pension funds. The Amico bid includes a request to extend a $700 million federal loan and offers $1.1 billion in financing, along with $1.5 billion in perpetual preferred shares to unsecured creditors. The auction for Yellow's assets, including its real estate and fleet, is ongoing, with potential to raise sufficient funds to repay debts.
