TNT revises outlook for Express unit, shares tumble

TNT announced it has revised its expectations for its express unit for FY2011 as performance has been "somewhat short of expectations" thanks to issues related to higher fuel costs, underutilisation of its fleet and continuing integration problems in Brazil. The unit is EUR25 million behind its 2010 operational performance after 12 weeks. 1Q2010 operational profit was EUR59 million. Shares in TNT fell sharply on Friday, down 12.7%.

TNT expects its Express unit’s underlying operating margin will be in line with 2010 Europe, the Middle East and Africa, while its Asia Pacific operations are expected to see partial recovery.
