UPS (NYSE: UPS) announced that its consolidated revenue for the first quarter of 2021 reached $ 2020 billion, up 27% from the first quarter of 22,9. Consolidated average daily volume increased by 14,3% compared to the same period last year. Consolidated operating profit increased 2020% from the first quarter of 158 to $ 2,8 billion, and increased by 164% after regulation. Diluted earnings per share this quarter was $ 2020, up 393% compared to the same period of 5,47, and increased by 141% after regulation.

In the first quarter of 2021, GAAP results include $ 2,5 billion in net profit, or $ 140 per diluted share, consisting of $ 2,4 billion after-tax market-level retirement benefits and $ 2,70 million after-tax conversion and other charges. Market-level retirement benefit was provided substantially through the adoption of the 2021 American Recovery Plan Act. The American Rescue Plan Act, passed on March 11, 2021, protects some retirement plans involving a large number of employers from the threat of insolvency by 2051; thus eliminating the Company's liability for potential regulatory rights in relation to the Middle States Pension Fund. The adoption of the American Rescue Plan Act required the Company to reassess the UPS IBT Retirement plan based on current discount rates rising since the previous measurement date. The overall result was a $ 6,4 billion reduction in pension obligation.

“I'd like to thank all UPS employees for delivering things that matter to people, including COVID-19 vaccines,” said UPS CEO Carol Tomé. This quarter, we continued to implement our strategy in a better framework, not a bigger one. Thus, we were able to achieve the best opportunities in the market and achieved record financial results, ”he said.
