Operating cash flow improves marginally Ford Motor Company has generated cash of $4,336 million from operating activities during the quarter, up 4.51 percent or $187 million, when compared with the a year ago period.

Ford announced two North American product recalls in March that cost the company $295 million.

In the year-ago quarter, the cable and internet service provider reported adjusted earnings of 43 cents per share, GAAP earnings of 42 cents per share and $18.8 billion in revenue.

Transaction prices for its new cars and trucks rose $1,971 year-over-year, according to Ford, compared with an industry average increase of $506. Revenue rose slightly as the company sold a higher mix of high-profit trucks and SUVs.
