  • FedEx (FDX), the global logistics firm, announced a significant increase in its annual dividend payout, signaling its optimism for the future of the company, and pleasing shareholders in the process. Under the new plan, the annual payout will increase by 44 cents to $5.04, with a quarterly dividend of $1.26 per share payable on July 3.
  • FedEx raised its annual dividend ahead of its investor event and announced plans to consolidate its operating companies into a single organization. The new structure will integrate FedEx Express, FedEx Ground, and FedEx Services into one unit, which is expected to drive efficiencies by eliminating redundancies in the delivery process. This move is likely to benefit shareholders by streamlining the company's operations and reducing costs.

Why it matters

The move is expected to improve efficiency and cut costs. The company is currently dealing with a downturn in shipping demand and high operating expenses. It plans to cut its US workforce by about 25,000 by the end of May. Despite this, investors are optimistic about the company's future under CEO Raj Subramaniam, with shares up 31% year-to-date.
