The company’s original first quarter forecast was for earnings of USD1.45 to USD1.60 per diluted share. The company noted, "Earnings during the quarter were lower than originally forecast, as weakness in the global economy constrained revenue growth at FedEx Express more than expected in the earlier guidance".
