FedEx: “FedEx projects earnings to be USD1.66 to USD1.83 per diluted share in the fourth quarter and an adjusted USD4.83 to USD5.00 per diluted share for fiscal 2011. Earnings could be affected by the impact of the ongoing political turmoil in the Middle East and North Africa on fuel prices and the economy. Also, the near-term impact of the earthquake and tsunami in Japan on operational costs, shipping patterns and the global economy is currently uncertain. The annual guidance excludes FedEx Freight combination costs and a second quarter legal reserve. Including costs from the FedEx Freight combination and the legal reserve, earnings are expected to be USD4.49 to USD4.66 per diluted share for fiscal 2011. The capital spending forecast for fiscal 2011 remains USD3.5 billion,” Company statement. Source: FedEx, 17-Mar-2011.
