All this with the production restraints of the F150, the #1 profit driver. New Edge hitting lots with coming refreshed Explorer and the rest of the year really looks good for Ford.

NORTH AMERICA
Wholesale 816K
Revenue $23.3 Billion
Operating Margin 11.1%
Pre-Tax $2.6 Billion

Pre-tax profit was an any-quarter record at $2.6 billion, up $157 million from last year’s record profit. Favorable volume, mix and net pricing were offset partially by higher costs and unfavorable exchange. Higher wholesales reflect the non-repeat of last year’s stock reduction and higher industry sales. Market share was a partial offset driven by lower availability of F-150. Higher revenue was driving by higher volume, net pricing and favorable mix; effect of the strong U.S. dollar was a partial offset. North America’s pre-tax profit is expected to exceed last year’s result.

SOUTH AMERICA
Wholesale 98K
Revenue $1.5 Billion
Operating Margin (12.4)%
Pre-Tax (185) Million

Ford continues to benefit from the strategy of replacing legacy products with One Ford products, even in a difficult business environment. The new Ka drove strong share gains, which at 10 percent, was up 1.1 percentage points. In Brazil, Fusion continues to lead its segment, and as a result of the success of the F-Series and Cargo, Ford led the light and semi-light truck segments. In Argentina, Ford continued to rank second in sales, and EcoSport and Mondeo led their segments. Wholesale volume was down 14 percent due to lower industry sales. This, along with weaker currencies, resulted in a 29 percent decline in revenue. Pre-tax results improved from a year ago due to higher net pricing. For the full-year, pre-tax loss is expected to improve from 2014.

EUROPE
Wholesale 389K
Revenue $7.0 Billion
Operating Margin (0.2)%
Pre-Tax ($14) Million

Ford continued its European transformation plan focused on product, brand and cost. Wholesale volume improved 3 percent compared with a year ago as a result of higher Europe 20 industry sales, as well as higher industry sales and Ford share in Turkey. These factors were offset partially by the non-repeat of last year’s dealer stock increase. Revenue was down 14 percent due to the adverse translation effects of the strong U.S. dollar. Pre-tax results were largely unchanged from a year ago, however, the underlying operating performance in Europe improved. Ford’s results did not benefit from the usual seasonal stock increase or last year’s one-time reserve release. Volume and mix were favorable, and net pricing improved. Pre-tax loss expected to improve for the full year of 2015

MIDDLE EAST & AFRICA
Wholesale 44K
Revenue $0.9 Billion
Operating Margin (5.1)%
Pre-Tax $(46) Million

The company remains focused on building its distribution capability, expanding its product offering tailored to the needs of the region, and leveraging its global low-cost sourcing hubs. Wholesale volume and revenue declined 10 percent and 23 percent from a year ago, respectively. Lower volume was a result of unfavorable changes in dealer stocks due to production timing differences, while the lower revenue reflects the adverse translation effects of the stronger U.S. dollar, and lower volume. Pre-tax results declined compared with a year ago due to lower volume. For the full year, pre-tax results expected to be about breakeven

ASIA PACIFIC
Wholesale 349K
Revenue $2.4 Billion
Operating Margin 7.8%
Pre-Tax $192 Million

Pre-tax profit was a record for the second quarter. The improved result was driven by lower costs and favorable exchange. In the quarter, wholesale volume decreased 4 percent from a year ago because of lower industry sales and market share. Revenue, which excludes Ford’s China joint ventures, declined 15 percent, reflecting lower volume and weaker currencies. Ford expects 2015 to be a strong year, with results improving in the second half as compared to the first half, as new manufacturing capacity comes on line and the company launches new vehicles. For the full year, pre-tax results expected to be higher than 2014
