Shareholder Information

2016 was a very strong year for General Motors, one that saw the launch of award-winning products around the world, record sales and earnings, substantial return of capital to shareholders and remarkable progress in our drive to define and lead the future of personal mobility.

We are executing a strategic plan that is continuing to build a strong and sustainable business for the long-term and creating value for our shareholders. We delivered record operating performance for the third consecutive year in 2016, and have achieved 28 straight quarters of profitability.

A telling indicator of this success is our earnings-per-share performance. Since 2013, EPS-diluted-adjusted has grown 92 percent from $3.18 to a record $6.12 in 2016. In 2017, we expect another strong year with EPS-diluted-adjusted of between $6.00-$6.50.

We also expect to return approximately $7 billion in cash to shareholders in 2017, bringing total cash returns to approximately $25 billion from 2012 until the end of 2017. This represents approximately half our current market capitalization and more than 95 percent of adjusted automotive free cash flow over the same period.

Other records for 2016 include net revenue, EBIT-adjusted, EBIT-adjusted margin and adjusted automotive free cash flow. We are maintaining an intense focus on reducing costs and improving efficiency both to improve our current results and position the company to perform well throughout the business cycle.

And, as always, we continue to put the customer at the center of everything we do as we build and deliver sustainable shareholder value by positioning GM at the forefront of change.
