The U.S. Postal Service Announces Earnings Results for the Year Ended September 30, 2015

The U.S. Postal Service announced earnings results for the year ended September 30, 2015. The company reported a net loss of $5.1 billion for fiscal year 2015 (October 1, 2014 - September 30, 2015). The net loss is largely due to certain statutorily mandated payments over which the Postal Service has no control. Notwithstanding the loss, total revenue was $68.9 billion for the year, an increase of approximately $1.1 billion from 2014. Controllable income for 2015 was $1.2 billion compared to $1.4 billion last year. Controllable income is defined as net loss excluding expenses related to the mandated prefunding of retirement health benefits, actuarial revaluation of retirement liabilities and non-cash workers' compensation adjustments, which are factors largely outside of management's control.
