February 18, 2010: YRC Worldwide Inc. on Wednesday said its shareholders approved a series of measures required as part of a recent debt-for-equity exchange and a recent agreement by investors to provide YRC with $70 million in new liquidity.

The Overland Park-based trucking and logistics company (Nasdaq: YRCW) said in a release that, at a special shareholders meeting, a majority voted in favor of increasing the total number of shares the company could issue and reducing the par value of those shares. Shareholders also authorized the company’s board of directors to trigger a reverse-stock split, which will reduce the overall number of shares and make them more valuable.
