Roadrunner Transportation Systems Announces Acquisition of Capital Transportation Logistics

CUDAHY, WI--(Marketwire - Feb 24, 2012) - Roadrunner Transportation Systems, Inc. (NYSE: RRTS), a leading asset-light transportation and logistics services provider, announced today that it has acquired all of the outstanding capital stock of Capital Transportation Logistics ("CTL"), a provider of transportation management solutions ("TMS") located in Nashua, NH. The purchase price of $6.25 million was financed with borrowings under Roadrunner's credit facility.

CTL is a non-asset based TMS provider offering primarily transportation management solutions on less-than-truckload freight, in addition to truckload brokerage and freight bill audit and payment services. CTL serves its customers using a web-based system that allows clients to optimize carrier selection, dispatch and track shipments, generate invoices, create custom reports, and perform improvement analysis.

"The acquisition of CTL broadens the service offerings within our TMS business segment and expands our critical mass, freight density, and customer base in the Northeast," said Mark DiBlasi, CEO of Roadrunner. "CTL has built solid customer relationships with mid-sized and large shippers by providing robust, user-friendly technology solutions, access to consistently competitive rates, and an ability to drive continuous operating improvements."

"CTL is very complementary to our TMS platform," said Paul Kithcart, President of Roadrunner's TMS business segment. "We are excited about the opportunity to market their service capabilities across our collective customer base and to accelerate geographic expansion across the United States."

In 2011, CTL generated net revenues of approximately $6 million. CTL is expected to be accretive to Roadrunner's earnings in 2012.
