Fiat continues integration process with Chrysler
Fiat-Chrysler targets sales of 4.1-4.4M units in 2012; plans production facility in Russia
Fiat has proceeded with its integration process with Chrysler, and in January 2012, the automaker increased its interest in Chrysler to 58.5% after meeting the requirements set by the U.S. government in order to increase its ownership stake.
Fiat-Chrysler Group's annual sales volume for 2011 was 4 million units (including 12 month of Chrysler) while Fiat, excluding Chrysler, sold 2.033 million units. 2011 consolidated net sales for Fiat-Chrysler was 59,560 million Euro, up 66.0% from last year, with Chrysler's performance combined from June 2011. The group's trading profit was 2,392 million Euro, which was a 2.2 times increase from the previous year. The report suggests that Chrysler's good performance had covered for Fiat's drop in profit due to decreased sales in Europe.
Fiat expressed its performance outlook in terms of ranges because of the uncertain economic activities in near term in the eurozone. Fiat-Chrysler estimates between 4.1 to 4.4 million for its unit sales, over 77 billion Euro for its consolidated revenues, and between 3.8 to 4.5 billion for its consolidated trading profit (announced in February 2012).
