Chrysler Group’s third quarter net revenue up 19 percent from a year ago

Article by Christian A., on October 27, 2011

In the third quarter of this year, Chrysler Group posted a net profit of $212 million as it was aided by the arrival of new models and higher sales. In comparison, it had a net loss of $84 million the previous year. Its revenue increased by 19% to $13.1 billion, boosted by the demand for 16 new or refreshed vehicles intended for the 2011 and 2012 model years.

In addition, Chrysler raised its earnings outlook. It now anticipates achieving an adjusted net income of $600 million for the entire 2011. This is a marked increase from its former estimates of $200 million to $500 million.

Chrysler, which is the smallest automaker in Detroit, recorded $42 million in losses on revenue of $40 billion for the period from January to September 2011. Chrysler is on course to becoming profitable once again since 2005.

It has only been two years since it entered bankruptcy and was rescued by Fiat S.p.A. Furthermore, Chrysler said that its cash flow for this year will go as high as $1.2 billion. It had previously estimated a figure of $1 billion.

At the end of the third quarter, Chrysler had $9.5 billion in cash, lower from $10.2 billion recorded when the second quarter ended. However, this is higher by $1.2 billion compared to the previous year.

The earnings results were announced just one day after the UAW narrowly ratified a new four-year labor deal with the company. In a statement, CEO Sergio Marchionne said that Chrysler Group was able to stay with the plan it laid out in November 2009 that its sales will increase and it will get positive financial results.
