FedEx: “While we see signs of improvement in the economy, the year-over-year comparisons will remain very difficult for our second quarter,” Alan Graf Jr, Executive Vice President & CFO. Source: FedEx, 17-Sep-2009.
FedEx: “FedEx reiterates its earnings expectation of USD0.65 to USD0.95 per diluted share in the second quarter, which reflects the current outlook for fuel prices and a continued modest recovery in the global economy. A substantial decline is expected from USD1.58 per diluted share a year ago, when the company significantly benefited from rapidly declining fuel prices and the timing lag that exists between when fuel prices change and when indexed fuel surcharges automatically adjust. The company’s capital spending forecast remains USD2.6 billion,” Company statement. Source: FedEx, 17-Sep-2009.
