66 WEDNESDAY. OCTOBER 8, 1997 Money THE SALINA JOURNAL V U.S. POSTAL SERVICE Post office expects another profit On-time delivery holds steady at 92 percent for local first-class mail in nation's major cities By RANDOLPH E. SCHMID The Associated Press "We maintained quality first-class service Curing the United Parcel Service strike" WASHINGTON — The final numbers aren't in yet, but it looks like another billion-dollar profit for the post office. "Preliminary figures show we achieved a third straight year with billion-dollar net income," Postmaster General Marvin Runyon told the agency's board of governors, meeting in Norman, Okla., Tuesday. Also Tuesday, the post office said it delivered 92 percent of local first-class mail on time between mid-May and mid-September, a record-tying performance, despite the added volume of the United Parcel Service strike. The national 92 percent on-time performance is 1 percentage point better than the same period a year earlier and ties the 92 percent on-time performance of the previous period. Marvin Runyan postmaster general "Clearly, this proves that we maintained quality first-class service during the United Parcel Service strike — even while delivering 9 billion pieces of mail during that time," Runyon said. The new fiscal year began last week, and accountants are still completing the final tally for last year, so exact profit figures for the post office are not available, postal officials said. Surpluses in 1995 and 1996 totaled $3.4 billion, allowing the Postal Service to reduce its outstanding debt from $6 billion to $2.7 billion. Anticipating rising costs, the agency has applied for a 1-cent increase in the 32-cent first- class stamp price, but that is not expected to take effect before next summer. The post office's continuing profitability breaks a three-year cycle that had occurred in the past, with the post office making money in the year after a rate increase, breaking even the second year and then going into the red as costs increased, leading to another rate increase. The agency's on-time performance is measured by Price Water-house Co., which sends a half-million items each quarter and records their date of mailing and delivery, Major cities have a local zone in which the post office is committed to delivering first- class mail overnight, and that is used as the performance measure. In the May 24-Sept. 12 period — the agency's fourth quarter — every measured city had 90 percent or better overnight delivery except San Juan, Puerto Rico, which recorded 89 percent. That was an 8 percentage point improvement over a year earlier. Anchorage, Alaska, which has a standard of two-day delivery, recorded 82 percent on-time delivery.

Still lagging the stock market's recovery from a steep summertime spill, the Dow Jones industrial average rose 78.09 to 8,178.31 on Tuesday, only about 80 points from its Aug. 6 peak of 8,259.31. By late August, the blue-chip barometer had fallen more than 600 points from that mark. Broader stock measures, meanwhile, extended their record-setting steaks during the mostly quiet session. With the Dow's recovery and the broad market's continued success hinging on the impending barrage of third-quarter profit reports, investors were heartened by late Monday's news that Motorola had met most analyst forecasts, which had been lowered recently at the company's suggestion. PepsiCo spins off restaurant businesses PURCHASE, N.Y. — PepsiCo , Inc. said it raised $5.5 billion by spinning off KFC, Pizza Hut and Taco Bell into Tricon Global Restaurants Inc. and exiting its restaurant business, to gain cash to pay off most of its short-term debt and boost its stock buyback. The maker of Pepsi soft drinks and Frito-Lay snacks said it received $4.5 billion from the Tricon spinoff completed Monday. It also sold its PepsiCo Food Systems restaurant-supply unit in July to AmeriServe Food Distribution Inc. for about $830 million. In addition, it sold five small restaurant chains and completed an initial public offering of its New Zealand restaurant business. PepsiCo said it will use $3.7 billion of the proceeds to pay off . most of its short-term debt. The rest will be used to boost the company's stock buyback plans. Consumers slow borrowing in August WASHINGTON — American consumers slackened their pace of borrowing in August, reflect- , ing slower spending growth and , increased wariness by lenders.. Consumer debt outstanding ,, grew at a 4.2 percent annual rat,e to a seasonally adjusted $1.23 trillion, the Federal Reserve said :. Tuesday. That was down from a,. 5.9 percent growth rate in July. "Consumers are borrowing at a , very modest pace," said econo- -,, ! mist Sandra Shaber of the WEFA : Group in Eddystone, Pa. "This is hardly spending out of control.".. The report fit with others show r ing consumers retreated slightly after spending strongly earlier in the summer. Retail sales in Au-. n gust rose 0.4 percent after consid-. erably larger increases in July,. and June. Also, because personal bank-- •., ruptcies have soared past 1 mil-!./ lion a year, lenders have become: more careful, even though unenv - ployment is near a 24-year low : and consumer confidence near a 28-year high.
