11:29 EDTNSCNorfolk Southern CEO says 'confident' in company's long-term strengths
Addressing his last annual meeting as Norfolk Southern's CEO, Wick Moorman told shareholders that "we see continuing strength in the overall economy as well as opportunities in many of the markets we serve," and, "We are confident in our company's long-term strengths and prospects for continued success." President Jim Squires becomes CEO June 1, and Moorman will remain as executive chairman of the board. Moorman reviewed company highlights of 2014, which included "earning record income, revenues, and earnings per share while establishing its best-ever operating ratio, a key indicator of operating performance." These accomplishments were especially significant, Moorman said, considering 2014's extreme winter weather and traffic surges that exceeded expectations, which created service challenges. He delivered an upbeat message to customers and stockholders. "We expect to reach the strong velocity and service levels we saw in 2012 and 2013 by the second half of this year," Moorman said. "As we restore our network's velocity and efficiency, we will be able to secure additional business at rates that will drive positive returns for our shareholders."
