Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) has posted a 910 million euro ($1.1 billion) net income for the third quarter. The results are an improvement over last year and show less debt than the previous quarterly results.
EBIT for the U.S. and the NAFTA region rose to 1.29 billion euros from 1.28 billion euros. Revenue in the region fell 4 percent to 16.13 billion euros. The revenue decline is due to fewer vehicle shipments as the U.S. auto market has pulled back some in 2017.
FCA’s EBIT figures were similar in Europe, Middle East and Africa also ross for the quarter despite revenue declining by 2 percent to 4.98 billion.
In total, FCA’s revenue fell 2 percent to 26.4 billion euros, while EBIT rose 17 percent.
