- Focused on the Health and Safety of Employees and the Public
- Supported Customers with Near Record On-Time Service
- COVID-19 Weighed on First-Quarter Results
- Cash from Operations of $2.6B; Adjusted* Free Cash Flow of $1.6B
- UPS Liquidity and Financial Condition Remain Strong
UPS (NYSE:UPS) today announced first-quarter 2020 diluted earnings per share of $1.11 and adjusted diluted earnings per share of $1.15. The company’s results were adversely affected by the disruption to customers from the global coronavirus pandemic.
UPS has been designated by governments around the world as a Critical Infrastructure Business and continues to operate in all major countries, while adhering to additional regulatory requirements. In the U.S., the company is also front and center in leading the pandemic logistics response for the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and other federal and state government agencies. As a logistics leader, UPS is supporting FEMA and its Project Airbridge by managing charter flights around the globe. UPS has delivered several million pounds of Personal Protective Equipment for FEMA into dedicated UPS distribution space. In addition, as part of FEMA’s Project Airbridge and other healthcare-related missions, in April the company increased the number of flights by over 200 to transport critical life-saving cargo to the U.S. and Europe.
“I want to thank all 495,000 UPSers for their extraordinary efforts to leverage the full power of our global network in the fight against the coronavirus pandemic, keeping critical goods moving for businesses and consumers globally,” said David Abney, UPS chairman and CEO. “The world is counting on UPS more than ever before as we support the people on the front lines of this crisis and our customers with speed, ingenuity and reliability.”
In the first quarter of 2020, the company incurred a pre-tax transformation charge of $45 million, or $0.04 per share after tax. First-quarter 2019 adjusted results excluded a pre-tax charge of $123 million, or $0.11 per share after tax, from transformation-related charges.

Diluted Earnings Per Share

For the total company in 1Q 2020:
- Consolidated revenue increased to $18 billion, driven by growth in business-to-consumer shipments and gains in healthcare.
- Net income was $965 million; adjusted net income was $1 billion.
- Net income included material headwinds due to disruptions from the coronavirus pandemic, higher self-insurance accruals and other items.
- Adjusted capital expenditures were $939 million to support network enhancements.
- Dividends per share increased 5.2%, with dividends remaining a high priority for the company.
U.S. Domestic Segment
The progression of stay-at-home restrictions instituted across the country as a result of coronavirus closed businesses and disrupted supply chains, resulting in an unprecedented shift in customer and product mix in the quarter. The company’s automated hubs and other transformation investments generated efficiency gains; however, these benefits did not offset the significant headwinds from the impact the coronavirus pandemic had on UPS customers, coupled with higher self-insurance accruals. UPS continues to adapt its network to the current economic environment while supporting customers and critical government programs.

- International average daily volume was down 1.8% with declines in commercial deliveries.
- China volume primarily rebounded in March as its economic recovery accelerated, offsetting declines in January and February. Healthcare, high-tech and e-commerce sectors were positive contributors.
- International cost per piece was down 0.5%, primarily due to the impact of currency. Additionally, the significant change in mix was partially offset by network adjustments to align capacity to changing trade patterns.
- Operating margin was 16.3%; adjusted operating margin remained strong at 16.5%.
Supply Chain and Freight generated operating profit of $157 million, or $158 million in operating profit on an adjusted basis, despite significant economic headwinds from the coronavirus pandemic. Revenue was negatively impacted by widespread reductions in global economic activity. The segment is taking numerous actions to assist customers and improve financial performance as demand recovers, including activating aircraft charters from Asia, expanding customer relationships in the healthcare sector and applying peak surcharges where appropriate.
2019 年第 1 季
$ 158 M
- Revenue was down less than 1% due to disciplined focus on growth opportunities and the segment’s broad portfolio of solutions.
- Toward the end of the quarter, UPS Freight and Coyote experienced depressed volume levels primarily from mandated stay-at-home restrictions and businesses closures.
- Logistics grew both revenue and operating profit, led by double-digit growth from Marken.
- Within the Forwarding unit, International Air Freight tonnage rebounded in March generating revenue and profit growth in the quarter.
At this time, UPS is unable to predict the extent of the business impact or the duration of the coronavirus pandemic, or reasonably estimate its operating performance in future quarters. As a result, the company is withdrawing its previously issued 2020 revenue and diluted earnings per share growth guidance. UPS has taken steps to ensure it remains strong and resilient throughout this period, including:
- The company expects 2020 capital expenditures will be reduced by approximately $1 billion from previous estimates.
- UPS is suspending share buybacks for 2020, reducing its planned full-year repurchase target by approximately $783 million.
“We will continue to adapt through this challenging period and prioritize investments and operational decisions that put UPS in the best financial position.” said Brian Newman, UPS’s chief financial officer. “We take a disciplined and balanced approach to capital allocation and are confident in our liquidity position including our commitments to capital management and dividends.”

Such risks and uncertainties are currently amplified by and may continue to be amplified by the coronavirus pandemic and the impact it has had, and may continue to have on the global economy and our business, financial position and results of operations. You should consider the limitations on, and risks associated with, forward-looking statements and not unduly rely on the accuracy of information contained in such forward-looking statements. 除非法律規定所規定之外，我們並不承擔任何更新前瞻性陳述以反映在這些陳述後發生的事件、情形、期望變化或意外事件的義務。
GAAP 與非 GAAP 財務指標調節
We supplement the reporting of our financial information determined under generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") with certain non-GAAP financial measures, including "adjusted" operating profit, operating margin, other income (expense), income before income taxes, income tax expense, net income and earnings per share. We periodically disclose free cash flow, free cash flow excluding discretionary pension contributions, and capital expenditures including principal repayments of capital lease obligations. Additionally, we supplement the reporting of revenue, revenue per piece and operating profit with non-GAAP measures that exclude the period-over-period impact of foreign currency exchange rate changes and hedging activities. 依據 GAAP 認定的同等指標也稱為「公告」或「調整前」。
We consider quantitative and qualitative factors in assessing whether to adjust for the impact of items that may be significant or that could affect an understanding of our ongoing financial and business performance or trends. Examples of items for which we may make adjustments include but are not limited to: amounts related to mark-to-market gains or losses (non-cash); recognition of contingencies; gains or losses associated with mergers, acquisitions, divestitures and other structural changes; charges related to restructuring programs such as the implementation of our Transformation strategy; asset impairments (non-cash); amounts related to changes in tax regulations or positions; amounts related to changes in foreign currency exchange rates and the impact of any hedging activities; other pension and postretirement related items; and debt modifications.
我們認為，這些非 GAAP 指標可提供額外有意義的資訊，協助財報使用者瞭解我們的財務結果和現金流，並評估我們持續的表現，因為這些指標排除了可能不具我們潛在業務的指標，或是與其無關的項目，而且也可作為分析潛在業務趨勢的實用基準。Management uses these non-GAAP financial measures in making financial, operating and planning decisions. We also use certain of these measures for the determination of incentive compensation awards.
非 GAAP 財務指標應該作為我們依據 GAAP 備製的公告結果的補充物，而非替代物。非 GAAP 財務資訊不代表綜合會計基礎。因此，我們的非 GAAP 財務資訊不能與其他公司公告的類似標題指標相類比。
非 GAAP 營業利益、營業利益率、稅前收入、淨利和每股盈餘排除了與改組計畫相關成本的影響，包括轉型策略成本。我們相信，在不考慮改組成本的短期影響下，這可以對於年度間財務績效提供實用的比較。我們會以這項調整後的基礎來評估我們的績效。
We believe currency-neutral revenue, revenue per piece and operating profit information allows users of our financial statements to understand growth trends in our products and results. We evaluate the performance of our International Package and Supply Chain and Freight segments on this currency-neutral basis.
非 GAAP 退休金折現率（自然利率）營業利益不包括折現率變更對退休金服務成本在同期比較下的影響。We believe this allows users of our financial statements to understand growth trends in our products and results excluding the period over period movement in discount rates. 2020 年 1 月 1 日 生效，我們開始使用退休金折現率（自然利率）營業利益來評估我們的業務，並加上目前業務營業利益的衡量標準。
We believe free cash flow, free cash flow excluding discretionary pension contributions and free cash flow plus principal repayments of capital lease obligations are important indicators of how much cash is generated by regular business operations and we use them as a measure of incremental cash available to invest in our business, meet our debt obligations and return cash to shareowners. Additionally, we believe that adjusting capital expenditures for principal repayments of capital lease obligations more appropriately reflects the overall cash that we have invested in capital assets.We calculate free cash flow as cash flows from operating activities less capital expenditures, proceeds from disposals of property, plant and equipment, and plus or minus the net changes in finance receivables and other investing activities. 排除自提退休金的自由現金流量，再加回在此期間提撥的任何自提退休金。
