GM Reports First Quarter Net Income of $0.1 Billion

General Motors Co. (NYSE: GM) announced first quarter net income attributable to common stockholders of $0.1 billion, or $0.06 per diluted share recently.

Strong core operating performance during the quarter was more than offset by a net loss from special items of $0.4 billion, or $(0.23) per diluted share, and a $1.3 billion pre-tax charge primarily for the cost of recall-related repairs, or $(0.48) per diluted share.

Special items in the quarter were primarily related to changing the exchange rate GM uses for re-measuring the net assets of its Venezuelan subsidiaries.

In the first quarter of 2013, GM's net income attributable to common stockholders was $0.9 billion, or $0.58 per diluted share, including a net loss from special items of $0.2 billion or $(0.09) per diluted share.

Earnings before interest and tax (EBIT) adjusted was $0.5 billion and included the impact of a $1.3 billion pre-tax charge for recall-related costs and $0.3 billion in restructuring costs. This compares to the first quarter of 2013, when the company recorded EBIT-adjusted of $1.8 billion, which included a pre-tax charge of
$0.1 billion for recalls and $0.1 billion in restructuring costs.

Net revenue in the first quarter of 2014 was $37.4 billion, compared to $36.9 billion in the first quarter of 2013.

"The performance of our core operations was very strong this quarter, reflecting the positive response of customers to the new vehicles we are bringing to market," said GM CEO Mary Barra. "Our focus remains on creating the world's best vehicles with the highest levels of safety, quality and customer service, while aggressively addressing our business opportunities and challenges globally."
