General Motors started the year with record success. The automaker's $2.7 billion in adjusted earnings before interest and taxes was its highest ever in in the first quarter of 2016, up from $2.1 billion in from the same time period a year earlier. Net income grew to $1.95 billion, which was more than double the $953 million in the same period last year. The company's figures also beat analysts' predictions, according to the Detroit Free Press. Despite the financial growth, global sales actually decreased by 2.5 percent to 2.36 million vehicles.

  • EPS diluted of $1.24; First-quarter record EPS diluted-adjusted of $1.26
  • First-quarter record EBIT-adjusted of $2.7 billion
  • GM Europe posts break-even performance

DETROIT – General Motors Co. (NYSE: GM) today announced first-quarter net income to common stockholders of $2.0 billion or $1.24 per diluted share, compared to $0.9 billion or $0.56 per diluted share a year ago. Earnings per share diluted-adjusted for special items was a first-quarter record at $1.26, up 47 percent compared to the first quarter of 2015.

The company set first-quarter records for earnings and margin, with earnings before interest and tax (EBIT) adjusted of $2.7 billion and EBIT-adjusted margin of
7.1 percent. These compare to EBIT-adjusted of $2.1 billion and an EBIT-adjusted margin of 5.8 percent in the first quarter of 2015.

The earnings increase was driven by improved year-over-year results in all reporting segments, including breakeven performance in Europe.

“We’re growing where it counts, gaining retail share in the U.S., outpacing the industry in Europe and capitalizing on robust growth in SUV and luxury segments in China,” said Chairman and CEO Mary Barra. “This strong quarter also reflects the excellent progress we’re making to improve results in our more challenged global markets. Importantly, the continued success of our core business is enabling us to invest in advanced technology and innovations that will help shape the future of personal mobility.”

First-quarter 2016 EBIT-adjusted results included the impact of $0.3 billion restructuring costs, primarily in North America, compared to $0.1 billion in restructuring costs a year ago.

Net revenue during the quarter was $37.3 billion compared to $35.7 billion in the first quarter of 2015. Holding exchange rates constant, net revenue was
$2.9 billion higher than the first quarter of 2015.
