FCA’s 2015 results, with and without Ferrari

by Bill Cawthon on

FCA closed 2015 with higher profits, well in excess of their  guidance to analysts, and substantially less debt.

Including Ferrari, net revenues were $123.1 billion, up 18%, Adjusted EBIT (earnings before interest and taxes) was $5,730 billion, up by 40% from 2014 and adjusted net profit was nearly $2.2 billion, up by 91%.


The spinoff of Ferrari allowed FCA to begin 2016 with a net industrial debt of around $5.5 billion, far lower than in January 2015.

The company shipped out 4.6 million vehicles worldwide, down slightly from 2014.

Adjusted EBIT was $5.7 billion, up 40% from $4.1 billion in 2014, with NAFTA more than doubling and EMEA becoming profitable one year ahead of the plan. All segments were profitable in the fourth quarter of 2015.

Adjusted net profit was $2.2 billion, up 91% compared to $1.15 billion in 2014. Net profit in 2015 was $410 million, which includes third-quarter charges for the change in estimate to reflect current regulatory and recall environment, as well as fourth-quarter charges for planned realignment of NAFTA capacity to reflect market trends.

Including Ferrari, net industrial debt was $6.54 billion on December 31, 2015, with strong liquidity ($27.5 billion). After the spinoff of Ferrari, net industrial debt stood at $5.49 billion and liquidity dropped marginally to $26.7 billion.

Around 85% of net profits came from the former Chrysler.

Rsults in the following table include Ferrari to allow comparison with previous periods:
