November 5, 2014 , Auburn Hills, Mich. - Chrysler Group LLC today reported preliminary financial results for the third quarter and the first nine months of 2014, including net income of $611 million for the quarter, up 32 percent from $464 million in the same quarter a year ago.

Adjusted Net Income(a) for the first nine months of 2014 was $1.7 billion, up from $1.2 billion in the first nine months of 2013. The Adjusted Net Income of $1.7 billion excludes the unfavorable effects of infrequent items recorded in the first quarter of 2014, related to the Company’s prepayment of a note held by the UAW Retiree Medical Benefits Trust (VEBA Trust Note) and a charge for commitments associated with the January memorandum of understanding signed with the UAW. Including the infrequent items, net income for the first nine months of 2014 was $540 million.

Net revenue for the third quarter was $20.7 billion, up 18 percent from $17.6 billion a year ago. Net revenue for the first nine months of the year was $60.1 billion, up from $50.9 billion a year ago. The increase in third-quarter year-over-year revenues was driven by higher shipments, in particular from the all-new Jeep Cherokee and all-new Chrysler 200.

Modified Operating Profit was $946 million in the third quarter, or 4.6 percent of net revenue, up 10 percent from $862 million in the prior-year period. The increase was mainly the result of higher shipment volumes, improved net pricing and purchasing efficiencies, partially offset by higher industrial costs due to vehicle content enhancements and higher warranty costs, principally due to recall campaigns. Modified Operating Profit for the first nine months of 2014 was $2.5 billion, or 4.2 percent of net revenue, up from $2.1 billion in the first nine months of 2013.
