General Motors posted fourth quarter earnings that beat analysts’ expectations.
The carmaker’s adjusted earnings for the three months ending in December came in at $2.12 per share, surging +57% year-over-year, and exceeding the Street expectation of $1.69 per share.
Revenues rose +28.3% to $43.1 billion, vs. analysts' consensus of $40.65 billion.
GM delivered 623,261 cars over the quarter, which is +41% increase from last year.
Looking ahead, General Motors expects adjusted net income in the range of $10.5 billion to $12.5 billion for 2023. It projects earnings in the range of $6 to $7 per share, higher than the Refinitiv forecast of around $5.73 per share.
"We expect that our momentum will help us deliver strong results once again in 2023," stated CEO Mary Barra. "GM led the U.S. industry in total sales and delivered the largest year-over-year increase in market share of any OEM, thanks to strong demand for our products and improved supply chain conditions."
"Our EVs are transformational in so many ways. We’re earning new customers," Barra added. "Our investments are creating new jobs. We’re moving closer to a world with zero crashes, zero emissions and zero congestion, and we believe our R&D, supply chain, manufacturing scale and distribution network will unlock the profitability of EVs."
