Today, we are announcing that we delivered a 2014 second quarter pre-tax profit of $2.6 billion – our 20th consecutive quarterly profit and our highest quarterly profit since the second quarter of 2011. We also are affirming we are on track with our full-year total company profit guidance of $7 billion to $8 billion – in a year with an unprecedented number of global product launches and investing for our future.
North America, Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa, Europe and Ford Credit all achieved profitability. These results reflect the power of our One Ford plan and the strength of our global team.

We are hosting our Global Town Hall at 7 a.m. EDT U.S. The earlier time is designed to ensure that we discuss our results with the Ford team first. We also are expanding the format of the town hall to not only discuss our financial results, but also review how we are building on the success of our One Ford plan by accelerating our pace of progress, delivering product excellence and driving innovation in all areas of our business.
Thank you for all you are doing, and congratulations to the entire team on a strong second quarter.
