With a Predicted Great 2013 Outcome, Ford Looks Forward to the New Year

ST. CLAIR SHORES, Mich - With a predicted great 2013 outcome, Ford looks forward to the new year. Ford expects 2013 to be one the best full-year results in its history. Revenue has grown, market share in all regions have improved or are equal to last year, total company pre-tax profit is at about $8.5 billion, there is substantially higher Automotive operating-related cash flow, and a stronger balance sheet.

With 2014 less than a week away, Ford cannot wait to see what it holds for the company. It too is expected to be a solid year and an important next step in the One Ford plan. Ford is launching the most vehicles in a single year in more than a century and is investing across the business for profitable growth in the years ahead.

The 23 all-new or significantly refreshed vehicles will be launched around the world, more than double the 11 global vehicle launches in 2013. In 2014, Ford is investing across the world to support next year's launches, but also to drive profitable growth beyond 2014 as they serve more customers in more markets and in more segments. In North America alone, Ford will triple the number of vehicles launched in 2013. Although it is Ford's largest region, Ford expects North America 2014 pre-tax profit to be lower than in 2013, with an operating margin ranging from 8 to 9 percent, consistent with the company's targeted ongoing range of 8 to 10 percent.

Although there are always risks and complications that may unexpectedly occur, Ford is still looking forward to the new year and heading in with a positive foot forward. Ford Motor Company is ready to work hard and continue to provide the world with exceptional vehicles.
