U.S.A.:Ford rebounds to earn $495 million in 2003

Automaker stays in the black for full year despite a $793 million loss in 4th quarter

By Eric Mayne / The Detroit News

Despite a fourth-quarter net loss of $793 million, Ford Motor Co. completed a $1.48 billion reversal in 2003, reporting a full-year net income of $495 million.

Ford's performance also saw its full-year earnings per share hit $1.14, exceeding its guidance of $1.05 to $1.10 per share and 2002's 56 cents per share.

Chairman and CEO Bill Ford Jr. used the results to hammer home his oft-repeated reminder that the automaker, just two years into a five-year turnaround, has made significant progress since 2001 and 2002, years marked by leadership turmoil and a $6.4 billion in losses, sparked primarily by after-effects of the Firestone tire recall.

We have dramatically improved our profitability, beaten Wall Street's expectations for eight consecutive quarters, and moved closer to achieving our mid-decade goals, the executive said today.

Sales and revenue for 2003 totaled $164,2 billion, up from 2002's $162.3 billion. Global vehicle unit sales totaled 6.72 million, down from 6.97 million 2002.

Ford's fourth-quarter net loss compares unfavorably with 2002's fourth-quarter loss of $130 million.

Meanwhile, Ford Motor Credit Co., the automaker's financing arm, earned a record net income of $1.8 billion, up $583 million from the $1.2 billion in earnings it reported for 2002. Ford Credit's fourth-quarter net income totaled $470 million, up $116 million from 2002's $354 million.

Ford Credit has been the automaker's star performer in recent months, growing its business despite the struggles which have stricken the rest of the company.

Ford posts $793 million 4th-quarter loss

Reuters / January 22, 2004

DETROIT (Reuters) -- Ford Motor Co. on Thursday reported a larger net loss for the fourth quarter, as the cost of job cuts in Europe and a restructuring of its spinoff deal with former parts arm Visteon Corp. offset improved auto and finance unit results.

But Ford reported a full-year net profit for the first time since 2000, and operating earnings for the year and the quarter topped Ford's own forecast.

Ford Chairman Bill Ford Jr. has repeatedly said he prefers the company to "underpromise and overdeliver" on its turnaround plan aimed at producing $7 billion in annual pretax profit by later this decade.

Ford said it lost $793 million, or 43 cents a share, in the quarter, compared with a net loss of $130 million, or 7 cents a share, in the same period a year ago. Excluding some $2 billion in charges from Europe and Visteon, Ford said it earned 31 cents a share, compared with earnings of 11 cents a share in the fourth quarter of 2002.

For all of 2003, Ford said its net earnings totaled $495 million, or 27 cents a share. Excluding special items, Ford said it earned $1.14 per share.

Both the fourth quarter and full-year operating results were higher than Ford's previous forecast to Wall Street of full-year earnings of $1.05 to $1.10 per share.

Ford, which may have been passed by Toyota Motor Corp. as the world's second-largest automaker in 2003, said full-year revenue increased about 1 percent to $164.2 billion, even as vehicle sales fell about 4 percent to 6.7 million.

Ford's automotive unit had a pretax loss of $4 million in the fourth quarter compared with. a $240 million pretax loss a year ago. Financing arm Ford Credit reported net income of $470 million, a 33 percent increase from the same period a year ago.

Ford's North American auto business saw its pretax profit fall 62 percent in the fourth quarter, despite higher revenue and vehicle sales, due to higher costs from new vehicles, pensions and health care.

Ford Europe, where Ford has launched a plan to cut 6,700 jobs in a bid to reduce losses, reported a pretax profit of $60 million, its only profitable quarter of 2003. The Premier Automotive Group of luxury brands had a pretax profit of $108 million compared with a loss of $388 million in the same period a year ago.

Ford also reversed losses in its Asia Pacific auto business and cut losses in South America.

The automaker forecast first-quarter earnings of 40 cents to 45 cents a share, excluding special charges, and it maintained its previous outlook for earnings of $1.20 to $1.30 per share for all of 2004. Analysts on average were expecting 34 cents a share in the first quarter, according to Reuters Research, a division of Reuters Group PLC.

In the fourth quarter, Ford earned 31 cents per share from continuing operations, excluding special items, up from a comparable year-ago result of 11 cents per share.

Total sales and revenue in the fourth quarter was $46 billion, up from $41.5 billion a year ago. Worldwide vehicle unit sales rose in the fourth quarter to 1,880,000 from 1,789,000 a year ago.

AUTOMOTIVE SECTOR

The following is a discussion of fourth-quarter and full-year pre-tax results by our automotive operations excluding special items. Reconciliation to pre-tax U.S. GAAP results follows at the end of this document.

For the full year, Ford's worldwide automotive sector earned a pre-tax profit of $104 million in 2003, a $357 million improvement from a loss of $253 million a year ago.

For the fourth quarter, Ford's worldwide automotive operations reported a pre-tax loss of $4 million, a $236 million improvement from a year-ago loss of $240 million.

Automotive revenue for full-year 2003 was $138.4 billion, up three percent from $134.3 billion a year ago. Automotive revenue for the fourth quarter was $39.8 billion, up from $34.6 billion a year ago.

Automotive gross cash at Dec. 31, 2003 totaled $25.9 billion of cash, marketable and loaned securities and short-term VEBA.

THE AMERICAS

The Americas, which includes the company's automotive operations in North and South America, reported a 2003 pre-tax profit of $1.6 billion, down $236 million from 2002.

For the fourth quarter, the Americas reported a pre-tax profit of $193 million, compared with a pre-tax profit of $417 million in 2002.

North America: Ford's North America operations posted a full-year 2003 pre-tax profit of $1.8 billion, compared with $2.5 billion last year. The decline was primarily due to the absence of an increase in dealer stocks in 2002, unfavorable net pricing, lower market share and unfavorable exchange rates, partially offset by cost savings and favorable mix. Full-year revenue totaled $83.6 billion, down from $87.1 billion a year ago.

The North America automotive pre-tax profit for the fourth quarter was $197 million, down from $513 million a year ago. The decrease primarily reflected higher costs related to the introduction of new vehicles, higher pension and healthcare expenses, and unfavorable exchange rates, partially offset by cost reductions in other areas, improved mix and favorable net pricing. Revenue increased to $22.8 billion from $21.2 billion in the year-ago period.

South America: Ford's South America operations reported a 2003 pre-tax loss of $130 million, a $492 million improvement from 2002. The improvement reflected the non-recurrence of currency devaluations in 2002, favorable mix, higher market share, improved net pricing and lower costs. Revenue was $1.9 billion, up $328 million from 2002.

For the fourth quarter, South America's automotive pre-tax loss totaled $4 million, a $92 million improvement from 2002. The improvement primarily reflected lower costs, favorable mix, higher market share and improved net pricing. Revenue increased to $623 million, compared to $335 million in the 2002 fourth quarter.

INTERNATIONAL AUTOMOTIVE

International automotive operations reported a full-year pre-tax loss of $905 million, a $575 million improvement from a 2002 loss of $1,480 million.

For the fourth quarter, International Automotive pre-tax profit totaled $172 million, an improvement of $624 million from a year-ago loss of $452 million.

Europe: Ford Europe's automotive operations reported a pre-tax loss of $1.1 billion for 2003, compared with a loss of $549 million a year ago. The decline primarily reflected unfavorable net pricing, adverse mix, unfavorable exchange rates, and a reduction in dealer stocks, partially offset by cost reductions. Full-year revenue totaled $22.2 billion, up from $18.9 billion a year ago.

For the fourth quarter, Ford Europe reported a pre-tax profit of $60 million, an improvement of $77 million from a loss of $17 million a year ago. The improvement primarily reflected lower costs, improved results at Otosan, a joint venture in Turkey, and higher dealer stocks. These were offset by lower pricing, lower market share and unfavorable exchange. Fourth quarter revenue totaled $7.4 billion, an improvement of $1.8 billion over the year-ago period.

Ford Asia Pacific: Ford's Asia Pacific automotive operations posted a loss of $25 million, an improvement of $151 million from a loss of $176 million in 2002. The improvement primarily reflected favorable exchange rates, improved net pricing, higher industry volumes in the region and improved market share. Revenue increased to $5.8 billion from $4.4 billion in 2002. Asia Pacific's fourth-quarter pre-tax profit totaled $26 million, a $61 million improvement from a loss of $35 million in the year-ago period. The increase in profitability is primarily explained by favorable exchange rates and lower costs, partially offset by unfavorable net pricing. Revenue increased to $1.5 billion, compared with $1.3 billion in the 2002 fourth quarter.

Premier Automotive Group: PAG reported a pre-tax profit of $164 million for 2003, compared with a loss of $740 million last year. The improvement of $904 million primarily reflected cost reductions and improved mix, partially offset by unfavorable exchange rates. Revenue increased to $24.9 billion from $21.3 billion a year ago.

PAG's fourth-quarter pre-tax profit totaled $108 million, a $496 million improvement from a year-earlier loss of $388 million. The improvement primarily reflected cost efficiencies and favorable volume and mix, partially offset by unfavorable exchange rates. Revenue increased to $7.5 billion from $6 billion in the year-ago period.

FORD CREDIT

Ford Motor Credit Company reported record net income of $1.8 billion in 2003, up $583 million from earnings of $1.2 billion a year earlier. On a pre- tax basis, Ford Credit earned $3.0 billion in 2003 compared with $2.0 billion in 2002. The increase in earnings primarily reflected a lower provision for credit losses and the favorable market valuation of derivative instruments and associated exposures, partially offset by the impact of lower average net receivables.

In the fourth quarter of 2003, Ford Credit's net income was $470 million, up $116 million from $354 million in the same period a year earlier. On a pre-tax basis, Ford Credit earned $839 million in the fourth quarter of 2003 compared with $594 million in 2002. The increase in earnings primarily reflected a lower provision for credit losses, the favorable market valuation of derivative instruments and associated exposures, offset partially by lower sales of receivables.

HERTZ

Hertz reported a full-year 2003 pre-tax profit of $228 million, up from $200 million in 2002. Hertz earned $44 million in the 2003 fourth quarter, up from a year-ago pre-tax profit of $27 million. The year-over-year improvements reflected strong cost performance and improved leisure demand, partially offset by lower pricing.

OUTLOOK

"Through sound execution of our plans, we have cut costs, introduced a variety of new products, significantly improved our international operations and improved overall quality," said Chief Financial Officer Don Leclair. "This gives us increasing confidence in our ability to achieve the bottom-line goals we've set for 2004."

Based on operational metrics that include continued quality improvements, regional market-share stability or gains, and continued cost reductions, the company expects full-year 2004 earnings per share of $1.20 to $1.30 from continuing operations, excluding special items. This outlook assumes 2004 industry sales of 17 million vehicles in the U.S. and 16.9 million vehicles in Europe.

Ford's first-quarter earnings guidance is a range of 40 to 45 cents per share, based on income from continuing operations, excluding special items.
