FedEx: “In the fourth quarter, we expect to grow our revenue and earnings through increased demand for our superior services. Yield management will continue to be a top priority across all of our operating companies. With our improved performance and outlook, we are reinstating various employee compensation programs, which will dampen earnings growth in the fourth quarter and fiscal year 2011. We are also continuing to invest in long-term projects that improve service and reduce operating costs, such as long-range, fuel-efficient 777 freighters,” Alan Graf, Executive Vice President and CFO.
