DHL: “Provided that there is a moderate recovery in trade volumes, we continue to expect consolidated EBIT before non-recurring items to reach EUR1.6 billion to EUR1.9 billion in 2010. We now assume that we will be able to close the year as a whole at the upper end of this range. Deutsche Post and DHL should contribute nearly equally to this result. Our liquidity will remain strong despite restructuring expenses. Consolidated net profit is expected to continue to improve in line with our operating business,” Company statement.
