CSX Increases 2008 and Long-Term Guidance


Released: Sep 11, 2008

JACKSONVILLE, Fla., (Sept. 11, 2008) - CSX Corporation [NYSE: CSX] today announced increased 2008 and long-term financial guidance. The update reflects the company's strong performance, diverse traffic base and the positive outlook for rail and intermodal transportation.

"CSX remains a powerful earnings story. Our team continues to deliver outstanding service for our customers and superior value for our shareholders," said Michael J. Ward, chairman, president and chief executive officer.

2008 Guidance
The company now expects full-year 2008 earnings per share of $3.65 to $3.75. That estimate is an increase from previous guidance that targeted the upper end of the $3.40 to $3.60 range. CSX is increasing 2008 capital spending to approximately $1.75 billion and expects free cash flow before dividends of approximately $1 billion this year.

These updated estimates include a new investment in rail cars to capture demand for domestic and export coal shipments, as well as the company's current estimates of costs associated with recent 2008 storms.

Long-Term Guidance
Based on the strong momentum that is expected to continue beyond 2008, the company also is raising the following long-term guidance through 2010:

CSX Corporation, based in Jacksonville, Fla., is a leading transportation company providing rail, intermodal and rail-to-truck transload services. The company's transportation network spans approximately 21,000 miles with service to 23 eastern states and the District of Columbia, and connects to more than 70 ocean, river and lake ports.
