This past year, Ford has experienced strong revenue growth, market shares in all regions have improved or are equal to last year, total company pre-tax profit is at $8.5 billion, there is substantially higher Automotive operating-related cash flow, and a stronger balance sheet than a year ago. With all of this being said, 2014 is projected to be another strong year. Ford will be making a crucial next step in the One Ford plan with the launchings of the most vehicles in a single year in more than a century.
Let's take a look at 2013. It is predicted to be one of the best years in Ford history. Automotive revenue for the full-year is estimated to grow about 10 percent and market shares have increased in all regions aside from Europe, where Ford seeks higher retail share of the retail passenger car industry. Ford is making very good progress in putting its Europe transformation plan into affect.
Only being a few weeks away, 2014 is looking to be another good year for Ford and a critical building block in the One Ford Plan as Ford continues to build stronger global brands. Ford will be growing based on outstanding products and a better balanced business when it comes to sales and profitability. With a strengthening balance sheet, Ford will be able to reward shareholders with attractive returns. The company is also launching 23 all-new or refreshed vehicles around the world. Looking like the next step in profitable growth, 2014 is projected to bring in a company pre-tax profit of $7 billion to $8 billion.
