FedEx Corp. today reported earnings of $2.84 per diluted share ($3.18 per diluted share on an adjusted basis) for the second quarter ended November 30, compared to earnings of $2.59 per diluted share ($2.77 per diluted share on an adjusted basis) a year ago.
Both as-reported and adjusted fiscal 2018 earnings reflect the estimated negative impact of the June 27 cyberattack affecting TNT Express ($0.31 per diluted share). This year’s and last year’s quarterly consolidated earnings have been adjusted for TNT Express integration expenses of $0.33 and $0.18 per diluted share, respectively.
“Strategic execution by the FedEx team and a stronger global economy drove improved financial results, and we are well positioned for profitable, long-term growth,” said Frederick W. Smith, FedEx Corp. chairman and chief executive officer. “We are on track for another record holiday-shipping season, and customer-service levels have been outstanding. We thank our more than 400,000 dedicated team members around the world for their extraordinary dedication.”
Operating income increased due to higher base rates and increased volume at each transportation segment, partially offset by reduced revenue resulting from the TNT Express cyberattack and higher TNT Express integration expenses. Results also reflect a tax benefit of approximately $80 million ($0.29 per diluted share) from foreign tax credits associated with a dividend paid from foreign operations, and a favorable net impact from fuel.
