Operating income rose to $102.7 million from $76.3 million, and revenue rose 8% to $1.49 billion, Con-way reported July 30.
Con-way also set a share repurchase program, under which it can buy up to $150 million of its stock, and said it will boost its quarterly dividend to 15 cents per share from 10 cents per share, or 60 cents from 40 cents on an annual basis.
“Our cash balance has supported strategic investments that have lowered our fleet ages, improved our pension funded status and enabled margin expansion,” CEO Douglas Stotlar said in a statement.
