_____________________________

1 Adjusted EBIT is calculated as EBIT excluding: gains/(losses) on the disposal of investments, restructuring, impairments, asset write-offs and other unusual income/(expenses) that are considered rare or discrete events that are infrequent in nature.

2 Adjusted net profit is calculated as Net profit/(loss) excluding post-tax impacts of the same items excluded from Adjusted EBIT: gains/(losses) on the disposal of investments, restructuring, impairments, asset write-offs and other unusual income/(expenses) that are considered rare or discrete events that are infrequent in nature. Adjusted basic EPS is calculated by adjusting Basic EPS for the impact of the same items excluded from Adjusted EBIT. Refer to page 10 for detailed calculation.

3 EBIT plus Depreciation and Amortization.

4 At June 30, 2015.

5 At December 31, 2014.



Net revenues for Q3 2015 were €27.5 billion, an increase of €3.9 billion, or 17% (+6% at constant exchange rates, or CER) from €23.6 billion for Q3 2014. Higher revenues in NAFTA (+35%; +15% CER), EMEA (+13%; +11% CER), Ferrari (+9%; +3% CER), Components (+13%; the same at CER), were partially offset by decreases in LATAM (-30%; -15% CER), APAC (-47%; -49% CER) and Maserati (-21%; -28% CER).

Adjusted EBIT was €1,303 million, up €335 million (+35%; +15% CER) from Q3 2014. Adjusted EBIT excludes a €761 million pre-tax charge for estimated future recall campaign costs for vehicles sold in prior periods in NAFTA due to the Group's change in estimate. Adjusted EBIT also excludes €142 million for the write-down of inventory and incremental incentives for vehicles damaged in the Tianjin (China) port explosion on August 12, 2015 (expected to be recovered through insurance).

NAFTA Adjusted EBIT more than doubled from €554 million in Q3 2014 to €1,186 million primarily driven by higher volumes, improved mix and pricing as well as positive translation impacts, partly offset by increased industrial costs.  NAFTA Adjusted EBIT margin continued to improve from 4.2% in Q3 2014 to 6.7% in Q3 2015.  For the nine months ended September 30, 2015, NAFTA Adjusted EBIT margin improved to 6.1% from 4.1% for the same period last year and is on track to achieve the full year target of 5.5% to 6.0%.  Despite continuing poor market conditions, Adjusted EBIT for LATAM was €28 million, returning to profitability. The €34 million decrease in Adjusted EBIT for LATAM from Q3 2014 was primarily related to lower volumes, partially offset by favorable net pricing and favorable product mix primarily attributable to the newly launched Jeep Renegade.  Adjusted EBIT for APAC was a loss of €83 million, a decrease of €252 million from Q3 2014 primarily resulting from lower volumes, the disruption in shipments and other effects from the Tianjin port explosion as well as pricing pressure and negative foreign exchange effects.  EMEA posted Adjusted EBIT of €20 million, an increase of €79 million from Q3 2014  due to higher volumes, favorable mix and improved net pricing, partially offset by increased advertising costs.

Net financial expense totaled €620 million, €109 million higher than in Q3 2014, primarily reflecting an increase in debt levels and interest rates in Brazil, partially offset by interest cost savings resulting from the reduction in overall gross debt and refinancing actions in Q2 2015.

Tax expense totaled €39 million, compared to €227 million in Q3 2014, mainly due to decreased profit before tax,  partially offset by tax losses in jurisdictions where we do not record benefits on tax losses.

Net profit/(loss) for the quarter was a net loss of €299 million, compared to a net profit of €188 million for Q3 2014. The loss attributable to owners of the parent was €306 million compared with a profit of €174 million for Q3 2014.

Adjusted net profit for the quarter was €303 million, compared with €230 million for Q3 2014.

Net industrial debt at September 30, 2015 was €7.8 billion, down from €8.0 billion at June 30, 2015. The €0.2 billion decrease reflects capital expenditures of €2.2 billion offset by positive cash flows from operating activities of €1.4 billion and €1.0 billion of positive foreign exchange effects primarily related to the devaluation of the Brazilian Real. 

Total available liquidity was €24.9 billion at September 30, 2015, down from €25.4 billion at June 30, 2015 primarily reflecting €0.7 billion of operating cash absorption, €0.3 billion related to negative foreign exchange translation effects offset by a €0.5 billion net positive impact related to financing, which includes the draw-down of the €0.6 billion new European Investment Bank financing and the repayment of a bond at maturity of €0.4 billion.

2015 Outlook

The Group confirms its full-year guidance as revised upwards in Q2:

  • Worldwide shipments at ~ 4.8 million units;
  • Net revenues over €110 billion;
  • Adjusted EBIT equal to or in excess of €4.5 billion;
  • Adjusted net profit of ~ €1.2 billion, with Adjusted basic EPS ~ €0.77;
  • Net industrial debt guidance is adjusted to €6.6 - €7.1 billion (from €7.5 to €8.0 billion previously) to reflect transactions completed in connection with the Ferrari IPO.

Figures do not reflect impact of the previously announced spin-off of Ferrari planned for January 2016.

Shipments were 685 thousand vehicles (+12%) and sales1 totaled 674 thousand vehicles (+7%). Market share was 12.4% in the U.S and 14.9% in Canada, both consistent with Q3 2014.

Net revenues were €17.7 billion, up 35% (+15% CER) primarily due to volume growth for the Jeep  brand as well as favorable foreign currency translation effects.

Adjusted EBIT of €1,186 million, compared with €554 million in Q3 2014, reflects higher volumes, favorable mix, positive net pricing and a positive translation impact, partially offset by increases in  recall accrual rates and product costs for vehicle content enhancements, net of purchasing efficiencies. For the nine months ended September 30, 2015, NAFTA Adjusted EBIT margin improved to 6.1% from 4.1% for the same period last year and is on track to achieve the full year target of 5.5% to 6.0%.

Given the recent increase in both the cost and frequency of recall campaigns, the Group has revised its actuarial methodology for the estimate of future recall costs. As a result, an adjustment of €761 million was recognized for the U.S. and Canada related to the change in estimate of future recall campaign costs for vehicles sold in prior periods, which has been excluded from Adjusted EBIT.  Q3 2015 Adjusted EBIT includes the effect of increased recall accrual rates for vehicles sold in the period, which amounted to approximately €65 million.

Shipments were 140 thousand vehicles, a decrease of 31% reflecting continued macroeconomic weakness resulting in poor trading conditions in the region's principal markets. Market share in Brazil was 19.8%, down 160 bps, due to strong competition and pricing pressures, however the Group remained the leader in the market for Q3 with a 500 bps lead over the nearest competitor. In Argentina, market share declined from 14.1% in Q3 2014 to 11.6% in Q3 2015 mainly due to continued import restrictions. Segment market share for the Jeep Renegade in Brazil grew from 13.2% in Q2 2015 to 25.2%.

Net revenues were €1,515 million, down 30% (-15% CER) primarily due to reduced shipments, which was partially offset by favorable product mix primarily related to the Jeep Renegade and positive net pricing.

Adjusted EBIT was €28 million in Q3 2015, down from €62 million in Q3 2014, primarily related to lower volumes and higher input cost due to inflation, partially offset by favorable net pricing and favorable product mix mainly attributable to the Jeep Renegade.

Shipments (excluding JVs) totaled 30 thousand vehicles, down 45%, primarily due to declines driven by the impact of the Tianjin (China) port explosion, strong competition from local producers in China, and reduced shipments in Australia due to pricing actions. Group retail sales (including JVs) were 14 thousand vehicles lower than Q3 2014 at 48 thousand vehicles, driven by reduction in market for imported vehicles and interruption of supply due to the Tianjin port being blocked following the explosion at the port in early August.

Net revenues were €842 million, down 47% (49% lower at CER), primarily as a result of the decrease in shipments and the incremental incentives for vehicles related to the Tianjin port explosion.

Adjusted EBIT was negative €83 million, a decrease of €252 million from Q3 2014 driven by lower volumes as well as foreign exchange effects. Adjusted EBIT excludes €142 million for the write-down of inventory and incremental incentives for vehicles damaged in the Tianjin (China) port explosion (expected to be recovered through insurance).

Passenger car and light commercial vehicle (LCV) shipments totaled 250 thousand units, up 15% over Q3 2014. Passenger car shipments were up 16% to 197 thousand units and LCVs were up 10% to 53 thousand units. European passenger car market share (EU28+EFTA) was up 20 bps to 5.7% (up 90 bps to 28.3% in Italy).  For LCVs, European market share2 (EU28+EFTA) was down at 10.7% (up 100 bps to 44.5% in Italy).

Net revenues were €4,611 million, up 13% (+11% CER) resulting from higher volumes and favorable product mix driven by the all-new Jeep Renegade and Fiat 500X.

Adjusted EBIT for Q3 2015 was €20 million, compared with negative €59 million for Q3 2014. The improvement was primarily attributable to increased shipments and more favorable product mix, reflecting the continued success of the Fiat 500 family and the Jeep brand and cost efficiencies, which were partially offset by higher costs for U.S. imported vehicles due to a stronger U.S. Dollar and increased marketing costs.

Adjusted EBIT of €140 million, compared with €104 million in Q3 2014, primarily reflects an increase in volumes, improved product mix and favorable foreign currency transaction effects.

Magneti Marelli

Net revenues were €1,744 million, a 9% increase over Q3 2014, reflecting positive performance in the lighting, electronic systems and powertrain businesses.

Adjusted EBIT was €84 million, an increase of €36 million (+75%) from Q3 2014 primarily related to higher volumes, cost containment actions and efficiencies.

Comau

Net revenues were €480 million, a 43% increase from Q3 2014, primarily due to body assembly, powertrain and robotics businesses.

Adjusted EBIT increased by €7 million from Q3 2014 to €16 million primarily due to increased volumes.

Teksid

Net revenues were €141 million, a 7% decrease from Q3 2014, primarily attributable to a 13% decrease in cast iron business volumes, partially offset by an 18% increase in aluminum business volumes.

Adjusted EBIT was negative €2 million primarily from lower volumes from the cast iron business.

Brand activity in the quarter

The new Fiat 500 was revealed on July 4, exactly eight years after the iconic Fiat 500 was first launched and the Fiat Toro, a new sport compact pick-up truck designed specifically for South America and to be built in Pernambuco, was previewed in September.

Fiat Professional was named "Van Fleet Manufacturer of the Year" for the second year running in the U.K. at the eighth edition of the prestigious annual Commercial Fleet Awards on September 24, recognized for its commitment to the highest standards in terms of operation, innovation and safety.  The brand was also named "Green Fleet Manufacturer of the Year". In addition, Fiat Fiorino was awarded "City Van of the Year" for the fourth time, Doblò Cargo was awarded the "Small Van of the Year" award and Ducato received a commendation in the "Large Panel Van of the Year" category.

Comau unveiled its newest robot, Racer3, at the Shanghai National Exhibition and Convention Center in July.
