UPS Provides Earnings Guidance for the Fourth Quarter of 2014 and for the Year 2015; Revises Earnings Guidance for the Year 2014

UPS announced that it anticipates fourth quarter 2014 adjusted diluted earnings per share of approximately $1.25. Full-year 2014 the company’s adjusted diluted earnings per share is expected to be $4.75, up 3.9% over 2013 adjusted diluted earnings per share of $4.57. On a GAAP basis, full-year 2014 diluted earnings are expected to be approximately $3.28 per share, compared to $4.61 in 2013. Company earnings for 2014 were lower than previous guidance, primarily due to the underperformance of the U.S. Domestic segment. While package volume and revenue results were in line with expectations, operating profit was negatively impacted by higher than expected peak-related expenses. The company now anticipates 2015 diluted earnings per share growth to be slightly less than its long-term target of 9%-to-13%.
