GM's earnings were supported by its strategy to direct the chip parts it could get to popular and profitable full-size pickups and large SUVs. When asked by the media what that means in financial commitments, Barra said GM will be increasing its EV investment, but she declined to provide the exact amount. Finally, Barra said GM will invest in a third EV truck plant, about which it will announce more details later in the year.
GM CFO Paul Jacobson said dealer new-car inventory will remain tight, even though the semiconductor chip shortage should improve as the year progresses. GM ended the year with , new vehicles in inventory, but only a quarter of those are in dealership "ground stock" providing a day turn rate. Normally, dealers like to keep a day turn rate of supply in stock. A lot of it will be dependent on semiconductor availability but we definitely see improvements throughout the year. A strong mix and high pricing led that gain, said Jacobson.
Barra said GM has , Silverado pickup EVs reserved so far, including reservations from more than fleet operators, but GM sees its biggest growth opportunities with its self-driving subsidiary, Cruise. On Tuesday, Cruise said it is inviting members of the public to sign up on a wait list on the Cruise website for driverless rides.
All the rides are free, though the intent is to offer driverless taxi service in the future. Barra said she recently rode in a Cruise driverless car and it was "the highlight of my career. But its fourth quarter was challenged with the chips shortage and how that hurt dealer inventory.
Also, Caldwell noted that the vehicles that GM is selling are commanding heftier prices on average compared with its Detroit 3 counterparts. Analyst David Whiston of Morningstar said GM's results still look like a good quarter despite all the headwinds out there on chips and inflation. Chairman of the Board, Chief Executive Officer.

For a mature company, this would be slightly below average for growth. But however, this is significantly lower than the previous three years. For GM's balance sheet, I again go through each important line item from the balance sheet. In reviewing each line item, I will define GM's balance sheet line items, such as cash, property, plant and equipment, and liabilities between to Next, I then offer a summary analysis of GM's important balance sheet line items.
The cash position growth indicates that the firm needs more liquid assets to fund operations. As compared to total assets, cash is approximately 8. Finally, as a percentage of sales, this would be For this section, I have chosen several different financial ratios to review for GM. In reviewing each of GM's financial ratios, I first start with defining the financial ratio.
Next, I supply the financial formula for calculating the specific ratio. General Motors' current ratio ended at 1. At this position, the company was well balanced because it had slightly more current assets as compared to current liabilities.
Over the next several years, the organization's current ratio would fall to. This indicates that the company is continually increasing its current liabilities as compared to current assets. In doing this, the firm is continually increasing their risk for insolvency. In some industries, such as retail, having a current ratio below 1. In GM's case, having a current ratio below 1. GM ended with a total asset turnover of.
In the next five years, the company's total asset turnover would fall to. This continued decline in total asset turnover shows that the firm is under the utilizing assets in the company. The main driver for this problem would be its fixed assets.
In reviewing the fixed asset turnover, this ratio has been continually declining as well. This means that the firm is not optimally using their plants and equipment. To improve the fixed asset turnover, as well as the total asset turnover, the company needs to decide which plant and equipment are underutilized and divest the property accordingly.
GM's return on assets ended in at 4. In the next four years, the return assets would fall to 2. This means that the company is making less money on assets controlled by management. To improve upon this issue, again, GM's executive team needs to identify which assets may be divested.
Or, even better, identify how the company can improve sales while maintaining the status quo on assets held. General Motors' debt ratio is relatively low. Starting in , its debt ratio was In the next three years, their debt ratio would continually climb until it reached However, in , General Motors lower its debt ratio back to For most large organizations, they tend to have significant debt as compared to equity.
