Express1 Expedited Solutions Inc (XPO) filed Quarterly Report for the period ended 2009-09-30.

Express1 Expedited Solutions Inc has a market cap of $32.36 million; its shares were traded at around $1.01 with a P/E ratio of 14.43 and P/S ratio of 0.3.

Highlight of Business Operations:

We have reported all revenue and expenses, including income tax expense for Express-1 Dedicated as discontinued operations as the reporting unit lost its primary operating contract in the fourth quarter of 2008. Express-1 Dedicated disbanded all operations in February 2009 resulting in a gain of $10,000 in the third quarter of 2009 compared to a gain of $134,000 in the third quarter of 2008.

Net income for the quarter ended September 30, 2009, totaled $811,000 compared to $1,152,000 for the same quarter in 2008. The continued economic recession and related slowdown in demand for transportation services contributed to the reduction in overall profitability compared to 2008, however, we do anticipate continued profitability for the remainder of the year due to the Companys expense reductions and our belief that transportation volumes will continue to make a modest recovery for the remainder of the year.

For the quarter ended September 30, 2009, Express-1 generated income from operations before tax of $1,407,000 compared to $1,737,000 in the same quarter in 2008. Management remains optimistic about the remainder of the year and is committed to avoiding long-term, low margin solutions that would jeopardize future profitability as the economy and Company recovers from the recession.

Although CGL isnt dependent on any specific industry sector, it continues to feel the impact of the overall economic recession. Revenue for CGL was $8.9 million for the third quarter of 2009, compared to $14.3 million in the same period in 2008. Management continues to develop the international freight forwarding market with revenue derived from international shipments increasing from 23% of total revenue in the third quarter of 2008 to 30% for the third quarter of 2009.

Selling, general, and administrative expenses decreased in the third quarter of 2009 by $82,000 as compared to the same period in 2008. These savings are a direct result of the restructuring program adopted by the Company in the first quarter of 2009. Our savings for the quarter were partially offset by $65,000 of additional expense related to severance payments accrued for the departure of a company executive.
