17:38 EDTFDXFedEx sees pretax cost of voluntary buyout program $550M-$650M
FedEx disclosing in an SEC filing that on February 15, FedEx offered voluntary cash buyouts to eligible U.S.-based employees. The offer period will expire in 4Q13. Costs of the benefits provided under the voluntary program will be recognized in the period that eligible employees accept their offers, predominantly in 4Q13. The company expects the pretax cost of the voluntary program to range from approximately $550M to $650M in pretax cash expenditures, but actual costs will depend on employee acceptance rates. Employees in the first phase will vacate their positions on May 31, and the company expects for all eligible and accepting employees to vacate their positions by the end of FY14. In addition, a limited number of officers and managing directors have accepted voluntary buyouts to adjust our leadership team to our new organizational structure. The cost of these buyouts is included in the range referred to above and will be recognized in 3Q13 when the offers were accepted.

06:30 EDTFDXFedEx confirms, responds to Kansas Supreme Court decision
FexEx confirmed the Kansas Supreme Court issued a decision finding that a class of mostly former contractors in the state of Kansas should be considered employees under the Kansas Wage Payment Act, contrary to previous rulings by the United States District Court for the Northern District of Indiana. The decision applies to those independent contractors operating in Kansas from 1998-2007. The model that the court reviewed is no longer in use. FedEx said, "We fundamentally disagree with this ruling and are committed to protecting the rights of thousands of independent business owners to continue owning and operating their own businesses. More than 100 state and federal decisions – including that of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit – have upheld our contractual relationships with independent businesses. At this time we are considering available options in response to the court’s decision."
