Method of Determining FCA US’s Monthly Sales. FCA US’s reported vehicle sales represent unit sales of vehicles to retail customers, deliveries of vehicles to fleet customers and to others such as FCA US’s employees and retirees as well as vehicles used for marketing.  Most of these reported sales reflect retail sales made by dealers out of their own inventory of vehicles previously purchased by them from FCA US.  Reported vehicle units sales do not correspond to FCA US’s reported revenues, which are based on FCA US’s sale and delivery of vehicles, and typically recognized upon shipment to the dealer or end customer. As announced on July 26, 2016, FCA US has modified its methodology for monthly sales reporting as follows: 

  • Sales to retail customers by dealers in the U.S. are derived from the New Vehicle Delivery Report (“NVDR”) system and are determined as the sum of (A) all sales recorded by dealers during the month net of all unwound transactions recorded to the end of that month (whether the original sale was recorded in the current month or any prior month); plus (B) all sales of vehicles during that month attributable to past unwinds that had previously been reversed in determining monthly sales (in the current or prior months). 
  • Fleet sales are recorded upon the shipment of the vehicle by FCA US to the customer or end user. 
  • Other retail sales are recorded either (A) when the sale is recorded in the NVDR system (for sales by dealers in Puerto Rico and limited sales made through distributors that submit NVDRs in the same manner as for sales by U.S. dealers) or (B) upon receipt of a similar delivery notification (for vehicles for which NVDRs are not entered such as vehicles for FCA employees). 

Method of Determining Maserati North America’s U.S. Monthly Sales. Maserati North America Inc.’s (MNA) reported U.S. vehicle sales represent unit sales of vehicles made by dealers out of inventory to retail customers and deliveries of vehicles to fleet customers.  Sales to retail customers by dealers in the U.S. are determined as the sum of all sales recorded by dealers in MNA’s notification system during the month.  Only the first such recorded sale of a vehicle is reported and any subsequent sale of a vehicle previously reported as sold is not counted as a sale by MNA for sales reporting purposes.
