- 2 - Item 2.02. Results of Operations and Financial Condition.
Ford Motor Company ("Ford") hereby incorporates by reference its news release dated July 26, 2011, which is filed as Exhibit 99 hereto.
Ford will conduct two conference calls on July 26, 2011 to review preliminary second quarter 2011 financial results. Beginning at 9:00 a.m., Ford's President and Chief Executive Officer Alan Mulally and Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer Lewis Booth will host a presentation for the investment community and news media. Investors may access this presentation by dialing 877-415-3184 (or 1-857-244-7327 from outside the United States). The passcode for either telephone number is a verbal response of "Ford Earnings."
At 11:00 a.m., Ford Vice President and Controller Bob Shanks, Ford Vice President and Treasurer Neil Schloss, and Ford Motor Credit Company Chief Financial Officer Mike Seneski will host a presentation for fixed income analysts and investors. Investors may access this presentation by dialing 866-318-8612 (or 1-617-399-5131 from outside the United States). The passcode for either telephone number is a verbal response of "Ford Fixed Income."
A listen-only webcast and supporting presentation materials for these calls is available on the Internet at www.shareholder.ford.com. Investors also may access replays of the presentations beginning after 2:00 p.m. the day of the event through Tuesday, August 2, 2011 by dialing 888-286-8010 (or 1-617-801-6888 from outside the United States). The passcode for replays of the earnings call is 51847137; the passcode for replays of the fixed income call is 38855937. All times referenced above are in Eastern Time.
Please note that Exhibit 99 to this Form 8-K discusses various financial measures "excluding special items" and/or with other adjustments. The most directly comparable financial measures calculated and presented in accordance with U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("U.S. GAAP") are these same measures including special items and/or without adjustments. We believe that showing these measures on a basis that excludes special items and/or includes other adjustments is useful to investors, because it allows investors to evaluate our results excluding or adjusting for items related to our efforts to match production capacity and cost structure to market demand and changing model mix, as well as items that we do not necessarily consider to be indicative of earnings from ongoing operating activities.
In addition, Exhibit 99 discusses our key cash metrics, Automotive operating-related cash flow (which we believe best represents the ability of our Automotive operations to generate cash), and Automotive gross cash (including cash and cash equivalents and net marketable securities). We believe that Automotive operating-related cash flow is useful to investors because it includes elements that we consider to be related to our operating activities (e.g., capital spending), and excludes cash flow elements that we do not consider to be related to the ability of our operations to generate cash. The most comparable U.S. GAAP measure is Cash flows from operating activities of continuing operations on our statement of cash flows. The most comparable U.S. GAAP measure for Automotive gross cash is the sum of the individual line items on our balance sheet for each of the elements within that measure (Cash and cash equivalents and Marketable securities).
