1 for 300 Move Aimed at Boosting Shares’ Price

YRC Worldwide’s shareholders approved a reverse split that would boost its per-share price by rolling each 300 shares held into one share.

As a result, the less-than-truckload carrier’s outstanding shares would drop to about 6.8 million from nearly 2 billion, the company said.

The vote authorizes YRC’s board to make the change, which could raise the stock to about $12 per share, from the 3 cents per share closing price Wednesday.

A stock price increase removes the prospect of delisting on the Nasdaq National Market, which YRC faced because its stock had fallen below $1 a share for 30 days.

The split will be effective on the Nasdaq on Friday, when its ticker symbol will change temporarily from to “YRCWD,â€� from “YRCW.â€� It will revert back to YRCW on Jan. 3.

YRC Worldwide is ranked No. 4 on the Transport Topics 100 listing of U.S. and Canadian for-hire carriers.
