General Motors Co. (NYSE: GM) announced third-quarter net income to common stockholders of $700 million or $0.45 per fully diluted share, down from $1.5 billion or $0.89 per fully diluted share a year ago. Improvement in operating performance during the quarter was more than offset by a net loss from special items and incremental tax expense.
Net income to common includes a net loss from special items of $900 million or $0.51 per fully diluted share, including $800 million related to the repurchase of 120 million shares of Preferred Series A Stock. Results were also impacted by incremental tax expense of $0.5 billion or $0.29 per fully diluted share in the quarter compared to the third quarter of 2012.
Net revenue during the quarter was $39.0 billion compared to $37.6 billion in the third quarter of 2012. Earnings before interest and tax (EBIT) adjusted was $2.6 billion compared to $2.3 billion in the third quarter of 2012.
“We made gains in the third quarter as we improved our North American margins and increased our global share on the strength of our Chevrolet brand," said Dan Akerson, GM chairman and CEO. “Our efforts to build great cars and trucks and deliver solid financial results were recognized this quarter by Moody’s investment grade rating.”
