According to Ford CEO Jim Farley, the first quarter of organizing around and running the company on behalf of distinct customer groups produced solid operating results and a glimpse of the promise of its Ford+ growth plan.
Ford today will walk investors, analysts and others through how the company is now organized and operating – and will report financial results – based on three new global business segments that are focused on different automotive customers, rather than by geographic regions.
Ford next week will take the investment community and other stakeholders through how new, customer-focused business segments will affect its financial reporting and is expected to unlock significant strategic potential of the Ford+ growth plan.
Ford President and Chief Executive Officer Jim Farley and Chief Financial Officer John Lawler will discuss the company’s ambitious, customer-focused plan to grow and create value – and the double transformation bringing it to life – at an upcoming fireside chat with auto analyst Rod Lache.
Ford believes accomplishments in third-quarter 2022 set up a solid finish to a challenging year and a strategically fast start to 2023, as the company organizes around three customer-centered automotive business units – Ford Blue for popular gas-powered vehicles and hybrids; Ford Model e for breakthrough connected, electric vehicles; and Ford Pro for commercial products and services.
Ford again affirmed its expectation for full-year 2022 adjusted earnings before interest and taxes of between $11.5 billion to $12.5 billion, despite limits on availability of certain parts as well as higher payments made to suppliers to account for the effects of inflation.
