Italian Luxury Carmaker Ferrari (NYSE: RACE), May 7, 2019
Italian Luxury Carmaker Ferrari (NYSE: RACE) beat forecasts with a 14 per cent rise in first-quarter core earnings, driven by strong sales of its Portofino model and increased shipments in all regions, and stuck to its full-year targets.
Milan-listed Ferrari shares rose as much as 5.7 per cent following the results on Tuesday, They were up 4.6 per cent at 1100 GMT.
Adjusted earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) came in at 311 million euros ($348 million) in January-March, above the average forecast of 284 million euros in a Reuters poll of analysts.
Net revenues rose 13 per cent to 940 million euros, topping the average estimate of 864 million euros.
For 2019, Ferrari expects adjusted EBITDA to rise around 10 per cent to 1.2-1.25 billion euros. Sales are seen growing more than 3 per cent to top 3.5 billion euros.
Last year’s plan set a target for adjusted EBITDA in excess of 1.3 billion euros in 2020, but Chief Executive Louis Camilleri said earlier this year he was “very bullish” and might rise it, betting on new models and special editions at premium prices to lure customers.
