FCA to move to quarterly reporting of sales

Following reporting of Italian and European sales results for June, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles will move to reporting on a quarterly basis rather than monthly.
"A quarterly sales reporting cadence will continue to provide transparency of our sales results while at the same time aligning with where industry practice is heading," said Niel Golightly, FCA's Chief Communications Officer.
FCA will continue to report monthly sales for May and June. The first quarterly report will occur on 1 October 2019 covering the months of July, August and September.
The Group will continue to share certain sales data with third-party research firms, under appropriate confidentiality arrangements.
