FedEx: "We expect continued improvement in both revenue and earnings in fiscal 2011. Resumed growth in industrial production and global trade is increasing demand for our transportation services, and yield management remains a top priority across all of our operating companies. However, we expect the growth in earnings in fiscal 2011 to be constrained by significant increases in fixed pension and volume-related aircraft maintenance expenses, along with higher anticipated healthcare costs. In addition, our earnings guidance includes increased costs related to the planned reinstatement of various employee compensation programmes. We remain fully focused on improving yields, margins, returns and cash flow. Our cash flow from operations was sufficient to fund our fiscal 2010 capital investments and we expect this to be the case again in fiscal 2011," Alan Graf Jr, Executive Vice President and CFO.
