Outlook

FedEx is unable to forecast the fiscal 2018 year-end mark-to-market (MTM) pension accounting adjustments. As a result, the company is unable to provide fiscal 2018 earnings-per-share guidance or projected fourth quarter fiscal 2018 consolidated operating income or margin on a GAAP basis.

Before year-end MTM pension accounting adjustments, earnings are now projected to be $17.90 to $18.30 per diluted share for fiscal 2018. The fiscal 2018 earnings forecast before year-end MTM pension accounting adjustments and excluding the estimate of the remeasurement of the company’s net U.S. deferred tax liability, expenses related to TNT Express integration and certain first quarter FedEx Trade Networks legal matters is now $15.00 to $15.40 per diluted share.

Before year-end MTM pension accounting adjustments, fourth quarter fiscal 2018 consolidated operating income and margin are projected to be $1.84 billion to $1.94 billion and 10.4% to 11.1%, respectively. Excluding year-end MTM pension accounting adjustments and TNT Express integration expenses, fourth quarter consolidated operating income and margin are projected to be $1.95 billion to $2.05 billion and 11.0% to 11.8%, respectively.

(May not compare to the consensus of $13.61)
