FedEx Corporation is an American logistics company that provides services of delivery all over the world. The corporation was founded in 1971 and operates in more than 200 countries. In 2016, the company acquired TNT Express, which allowed it to supplement its list of services with automobile transportation in Europe.
In 1978, the stock of the logistics corporation began listing on the New York Stock Exchange. FDX Stock in the course of IPO was sold at $24 per paper. Shares of this company are now available to investors under the ticker NYSE:FDX.
The company is divided into several segments, with separate subsidiaries operating in each. One of the largest divisions is FedEx Express. It combines international and domestic delivery services. FedEx Express operates such subsidiaries as TNT Express and Custom Critical.
The logistics corporation carries out road, sea, and air freight transportation. FedEx Logistics organizes supply chains for industrial enterprises and provides services in e-commerce and customs brokerage services in different countries. The FedEx Freight segment provides B2B freight services in North America, Puerto Rico, Hawaii, and the Virgin Islands.
In 2021, the company reported a sharp increase in revenues. For example, operating income was $5.86 billion and net income rose to $5.23 billion, due to a surge in delivery demand amid the coronavirus pandemic.
In March 2022, it became known that Donald F. Colleran intended to step down as CEO. Following this news, the company's capitalization rose 3.7%. Management announced that Richard W. Smith, who had been with the corporation since 2005, would take over as CEO.
In March 2022, FedEx reported results for the third quarter of its fiscal year. The corporation's profit for the three months was $1.1 billion, compared to $892 million for the same period last year. FedEx posted earnings per share of $4.2, up to $0.9 from the third quarter of 2022. The company also reported total quarterly revenue of $23.6 billion. FedEx management said that the corporation met its earnings guidance and cut its capital expenditures by $200 million.
Prior to that, the corporation's results were also optimistic for investors. Thus, in the fiscal year 2021, FedEx's revenue increased by more than 21% to $83.96 billion. Operating and net income increased by 2.5 and 4 times, respectively. In the first fiscal quarter of 2022, business growth began to slow. Despite a 14% YoY increase in revenue, adjusted operating and net income decreased 9% and 7% YoY to $1.49 billion and $1.19 billion, respectively. This picture was due to a squeeze in operating margins.
Before the coronavirus pandemic began in March 2020, FedEx stock was trading at $120. During the pandemic, the logistics company's stock price went up sharply. This is due to increased demand for e-commerce services.
