Fiat brand sales in the U.S. and Canada were stable at more than 14,000 vehicles for the quarter. The new 500L was launched in the U.S. in May, expanding the existing line-up which includes the Fiat 500 and Fiat 500 Cabrio.
The NAFTA region reported revenues of €11.5 billion, up 5% over the prior year (+7% at constant exchange rate), primarily due to the higher shipment volumes.
Trading profit for Q2 2013 was up 1% over the prior year to €668 million, primarily attributable to higher shipments following the key model launches in Q1 and improved pricing, partly offset by increased industrial costs related to new product launches and content enhancements. EBIT was €733 million, reflecting the trading profit performance for the period and positive net unusual items. There was an unusual gain of €166 million with a corresponding net reduction to the pension obligation following the amendments of Chrysler’s U.S. and Canadian salaried defined benefit pension plans. The U.S. plans were amended in order to comply with IRS regulations, consequently the accrual of future benefits will cease effective December 31, 2013, and Chrysler decided to enhance the retirement factors. The Canada amendment also ceases the accrual of future benefits effective December 31, 2014, and enhances the retirement factors. Unusual charges also included charge related to the June 2013 voluntary safety recall for the 1993-1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee and the 2002-2007 Jeep Liberty, as well as the customer satisfaction action for the 1999-2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee.
During the quarter, the Group received various awards and recognitions, including the 2013 Chrysler 200 Convertible, Dodge Durango and Dodge Dart being named “Best 2013 Total Quality” in their respective segments by Strategic Vision’s Total Quality Index.

The market was down 8% in Italy and France, and 4% in Germany. For the rest of Europe, demand was down 9% overall.
Group brands recorded a combined 6.3% share of the European market, down 0.5 p.p. over Q2 2012, reflecting the continued reduction in Italy’s overall weighting in the European market. The 500 and Fiat Panda, the two best selling models in the A segment, posted shares of 14.3% and 13.5%, respectively. The 500L topped 18,000 units during the quarter, competing for leadership of the Small MPV segment with a 16.1% share.
In Italy, Group market share was 29.3%, down 1.9 p.p. over Q2 2012 that was impacted by the recovery of sales delayed from Q1 due to the car hauler strikes. The Group gained share in Spain (+0.3 p.p. to 3.8%) and France (+0.3 p.p. to 3.5%), and remained stable in the United Kingdom (3.1%). By contrast, share in Germany was down 0.5 p.p. to 2.8%.

The trading performance improved €40 million or nearly 29% over the prior year, with a reported trading loss of €98 million for the quarter. This result was achieved through continued discipline on cost management and better mix, mostly attributable to the success of the 500L, which more than offset lower volumes and continued pricing pressures. EBIT was negative at €74 million (negative €184 million in Q2 2012, including a €91 million write-down on the investment in SevelNord) and included a €39 million positive result from investments (€45 million in Q2 2012).

- Full-year 2013 Modified Operating Profit and net income guidance revised
July 30, 2013 , Auburn Hills, Mich. – Chrysler Group LLC today reported its preliminary second-quarter 2013 results, including net income of $507 million, an increase of 16 percent from $436 million in the same quarter a year earlier. The second quarter marks the Company’s eighth consecutive quarter of positive net income.
Net revenue was $18.0 billion for the second quarter of 2013, an increase of 7 percent from $16.8 billion for the same period last year, primarily driven by an increase in vehicle shipments, including the new Jeep Grand Cherokee and Ram pickup trucks. Net revenue totaled $33.4 billion for the first half of 2013.
“Chrysler Group is poised for a very strong performance in the second half of the year, with the new Jeep Grand Cherokee and Ram 1500 pickup earning best-in-class recognition, and the all-new Jeep Cherokee now rolling off the line,” Chrysler Group LLC Chairman and CEO Sergio Marchionne said. “As we have highlighted previously, the timing of product launches and capacity increases causes this year’s performance to be biased to the second half, and a continued aggressive drive for excellence and flawless execution will be essential to attain the targets we’ve set for ourselves.”
Modified Operating Profit was $808 million, or 4.5 percent of revenue, in the second quarter, versus $755 million reported in the prior year. The 7 percent increase was primarily due to higher shipment volumes and positive pricing, partially offset by higher industrial and launch-related costs, as well as a $151 million charge related to the voluntary safety recall for the 1993-1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee and the 2002-2007 Jeep Liberty, and the customer satisfaction action for the 1999-2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Modified Operating Profit was $1.2 billion for the first half of the year.

Η Fiat συμμετέχει, ως Χορηγός, στα «Masters World Games 2013», που θα πραγματοποιηθούν στο Τορίνο 2-11 Αύγουστου. Είναι η πιο σημαντική παγκόσμια αθλητική εκδήλωση αφιερωμένη στους αθλητές που έχουν ξεπεράσει τα 30 έτη ηλικίας, που διοργανώνεται κάθε 4 χρόνια, συμπεριλαμβάνοντας τους τριπλάσιους συμμετέχοντες από τους θερινούς Ολυμπιακούς αγώνες. Η Fiat προσφέρει στους διοργανωτές ένα στόλο οχημάτων που αποτελείται από το Freemont, το 500L Living, το Qubo και το Panda.
Στο πνεύμα του «Sport for All», ο Όμιλος Fiat πάντα υποστήριζε τον κόσμο του αθλητισμού: οι διάφορες μάρκες έχουν συνδέσει την εικόνα τους με πολλά αθλητικά γεγονότα και αθλήματα, όπως ποδόσφαιρο, μπάσκετ, ιστιοπλοΐα, αγώνες αυτοκινήτων, αγώνες μοτοσικλέτας, ράγκμπι, πυγμαχία, ξιφασκία και τα χειμερινά σπορ στο χιόνι και τον πάγο.
Οι κύριες χορηγίες τα τελευταία χρόνια περιλαμβάνουν τους χειμερινούς Ολυμπιακούς Αγώνες στο Τορίνο το 2006, όταν ο Όμιλος Fiat προσέφερε περισσότερα από 3.000 αυτοκίνητα και 1.200 πούλμαν ως Κύριος Χορηγός. Επιπλέον η Fiat είναι υπερήφανος Χορηγός των ιταλικών εθνικών ομάδων ποδοσφαίρου μέχρι το 2014 και θα συνοδεύσει τις ομάδες στους αγώνες του Παγκοσμίου Κυπέλλου στη Βραζιλία.
