Fiat Chrysler Nearly Doubles Profits in 2017

Jan. 26, 2018
Net profit soared by 93% to $4.3 billion last year based on sales of 4.74 million vehicles worldwide.

Italian-U.S. carmaker Fiat Chrysler said on Jan. 24 that its net profit nearly doubled in 2017, outpacing analysts' expectations, but it downgraded its sales target for the current year.

Fiat Chrysler said that net profit soared by 93% to 3.5 billion euros (US$4.3 billion) last year.

In the fourth quarter alone, net profit nearly doubled as well, jumping by 97% to 804 million euros.

Fiat Chrysler said it sold a total 4.74 million vehicles worldwide in 2017, stable compared with the previous year.

Revenues totaled 110.9 billion euros, little changed from 111 billion euros in 2016.

Looking ahead to 2018, the carmaker said it has downgraded its full-year revenues forecast to 125 billion euros from 136 billion euros previously.

At the same time, Fiat Chrysler stuck to its forecast for net profit of around five billion euros. Previously, it had been penciling in net profit of between 4.7-5.5 billion euros.

Investors welcomed the numbers and shares in Fiat Chrysler were showing a gain of 1.9% at 19.81 euros on the Milan stock exchange, meaning the stock has sped ahead by 94% since a year ago.
