Dear ACMA member or friend of the ACMA: Please play an important role by urging key Congressional committee members to intervene and stop Postmaster Louis DeJoy from continuing these punishing twice-a-year postal rate hikes. The July 9th increase was the third in the past 12 months. The action we're asking of you is fairly simple and easy, but requires two key steps: 1. The ACMA is a flagship member of the Keep Us Posted campaign, headed by former Kansas Congressman Kevin Yoder. Just use this platform to ask Congress to stop these rate hikes. 2. We have hand-selected you (and likely, a colleague or two from your company whom we also know) because your headquarters, your other facilities, or clusters of your employees are in districts of Congressional members who serve on the House Oversight Committee, the key committee that oversees the USPS. Please see the list below and use the Keep Us Posted letter as a template to write the appropriate representative separately from item 1 above. Send your letter by email to the contact listed below each Congressional member.
FedEx Corp. today reported earnings of $2.19 per diluted share ($2.51 per diluted share on an adjusted basis) for the first quarter ended August 31, compared to earnings of $2.65 per diluted share ($2.82 per diluted share on an adjusted basis) a year ago. Both as-reported and adjusted earnings reflect the estimated negative impact of the June 27 cyberattack affecting TNT Express ($0.79 per diluted share) and Hurricane Harvey ($0.02 per diluted share).
“The first quarter posed significant operational challenges due to the TNT Express cyberattack and Hurricane Harvey, and I want to thank our team members for their extraordinary dedication and performance,” said Frederick W. Smith, FedEx Corp. chairman and chief executive officer. “We are confident of our prospects for long-term profitable growth, and we reaffirm our commitment to improve operating income at the FedEx Express segment by $1.2 billion to $1.5 billion in fiscal 2020 versus fiscal 2017.”
Financial results during the quarter benefited from higher base rates at each of our transportation segments, which was more than offset by reduced revenue and increased expenses resulting from the TNT Express cyberattack, TNT Express integration expenses, higher costs at FedEx Ground, a higher tax rate, and the impact from Hurricane Harvey. Results also benefited from lower incentive compensation accruals.
The worldwide operations of TNT Express were significantly affected during the first quarter by the June 27 NotPetya cyberattack. Most TNT Express services resumed during the quarter and substantially all TNT Express critical operational systems have been restored. However, TNT Express volume, revenue and profit still remain below previous levels.
