FedEx posted earnings higher than expected by analysts, despite February’s severe weather conditions that affected operations at several of the delivery service company’s largest hubs.
The company’s adjusted earnings came in at $3.47 per share in fiscal Q3 2021, surpassing analysts’ estimate of $3.23.
Revenue rose +23% year-over-year to $21.51 billion , vs. analysts’ estimate of $19.97 billion.
But severe weather in February did have an impact on some operating hubs, including its primary FedEx Express hub in Memphis, Tennessee. The weather impact cut its operating income by roughly $350 million, the company said.
