They eventually plan to release one earnings statement in U.S. dollars, but on Wednesday they reported separate fourth quarter and full year earnings.

FIAT: Fiat posted full-year net income of 2 billion euros ($2.7 billion) in 2013, more than double its earnings from the prior year. Without special items, including a 1.5 billion euro ($2.0 billion) gain from deferred tax assets, Fiat earned 943 million euros ($1.29 billion). It would have lost 911 million euros ($1.25 billion) without profits from Chrysler. Revenue rose 3 percent to 87 billion euros ($119 billion). Worldwide vehicle shipments grew 3 percent to 4.4 million. In the fourth quarter, Fiat's net income was 1.3 billion euros ($1.8 billion), up from 224 million euros ($306 million) a year ago.
