General Motors Q3 net income almost halved to an EBIT adjusted US$2,922m from $5,284m in Q3 2020.
EBIT adjusted margin dropped to 10.9% from 14.9%.
Revenue was $26,779m versus $35,480m.
Year to date net income improved, however, to $8,278m from $3,581m.
EBIT adjusted was $11,456m versus $5,998m.
Q3 adjusted earnings per share were $1.52 compared with $2.83.
GM said the Q3 results reflected “strong price and mix performance in North America, the benefit of the company’s recall cost recovery agreement with LG Electronics and the continued strong financial results at GM Financial”.
The company expected to deliver full-year 2021 EBIT-adjusted earnings approaching the high end of its guidance range – full year EPS diluted of between $5.52 and $6.52, and EPS adjusted of between $5.70 and $6.70; full year net income of between $8.1bn and $9.6bn, and EBIT-adjusted of between $11.5bn and $13.5bn.
“The quarter was challenging due to continuing semiconductor pressures,” CEO Mary Barra said.
