Inside FDX’s Results

Revenue
Revenue increased 4% to $11.7 billion from $11.3 billion last year. Analysts expected to see revenue of $11.79 billion.

Outlook
Looking forward, FedEx expects to see FY2015 earnings between $8.80 and $8.98 per share. Analysts are expecting EPS of $8.97.


Profits Soar on Lower Fuel Costs

FedEx’s profits soared 53% in the third quarter, primarily due to lower fuel costs, mild weather, and restructuring benefits.

The company benefited from lower fuel costs on both its aircraft and vehicles. If fuel costs remain low, the company could continue to thrive amid lower energy prices.

In addition to lower fuel costs, FDX benefited from the restructuring of its air express division and favorable weather conditions.
