Union Pacific profit rises 6.2 percent

April 18, 2019

(Reuters) – Union Pacific Corp on Thursday reported a 6.2 percent rise in quarterly profit, as the U.S. railroad raised prices, helping offset the impact of severe winter weather and record flooding that damaged rails in the Midwest.

The Omaha, Nebraska-based company’s net income rose to $1.4 billion, or $1.93 per share, in the first-quarter ended March 31 from $1.31 billion, or $1.68 per share, a year earlier.

Total operating revenue fell to $5.4 billion from $5.5 billion.
