Swift Adjusts Earnings Report From Lawsuit


Swift Transportation reversed course after reporting third-quarter earnings were up 4.7% year-over-year to $38 million on Oct. 24, lowering the number to $24 million, or a 34% decline lower than a year ago. The Phoenix-based company wrote in a letter to investors Nov. 1 that pending litigation forced it to add $22 million in legal reserves, lowering earnings before tax and interest. As a result, Swift also will pay $8 million less in taxes and thus the total impact is a $14 million decline in overall earnings.
