Between 2008 and 2012, revenues fell from $143.6 billion in 2008 to an estimated $130 billion this year. The company took $14.8 billion in losses in 2008, but has been profitable ever since.  Ford’s performance of its different operations is rapidly diverging. US quarterly profits and operating margins hit the highest level since 2000. Ford’s operating margins of 12.0% during the quarter were very strong. Strength in Ford’s core business was offset by weakness in Latin America and continuing problems in Europe.
