Earnings Roundup

Con-way's profit hurt by legal costs

July 19, 2007|From Times Wire Services

Con-way Inc., the largest U.S. regional trucking company, said second-quarter profit dropped 32% because of legal costs and weaker demand.

Net income fell to $48.1 million, or 96 cents a share, from $70.7 million, or $1.30, a year earlier, the San Mateo, Calif.-based company said. Sales slid 2.4% to $1.07 billion.

Con-way overcame a decline in shipments involving multiple customers to post its 11th consecutive quarterly profit and top analysts' forecasts.
