USPS results through July 2015

The U.S. Postal Service recently published its results for the month of July 2015 and its year-to-date results through July 2015. They can be found here.

The Postal Service had a $46 million operating loss for the month of May, before the impacts of retiree health benefits (RHB) pre-funding and workers’ compensation accounting adjustments.

As of the end of July 2015, USPS’ year-to-date operating profit was $1.2 billion before RHB pre-funding and workers’ comp accounting adjustments. This operating profit is in line with the Postal Service’s 2015 plan, and about $140 million more than the results at the same point last year.

USPS has two more months remaining in the 2015 fiscal year, which ends on Sept. 30.

Another monthly report (for August 2015) will be published at the end of September. We expect the results for the full fiscal year (which will include the month of September 2015) will be released at the beginning of November 2015.
