M. Corey Goldman

Pitney Bowes posted a net loss of $2.66 million, or 1 cent a share, vs. net income of $59.9 million, or 32 cents a share, in the comparable year-ago quarter. On an adjusted basis, which included the sale of some of its money-losing European operations, the company posted per-share earnings of 12 cents - less than half the 28 cents it earned in the first quarter of 2018 and below the 21 cents a share expected by analysts surveyed by FactSet.
