For the three months ended Dec. 31, 2016, Magna posted sales of $9.25 billion for the fourth quarter, an increase of 8 percent over the fourth quarter of 2015. The company said this strong year-over-year growth was achieved despite both North American and European light vehicle production decreasing 4 percent compared to the fourth quarter of 2015. Our complete vehicle assembly volumes decreased 70 percent, largely reflecting the end of production of the MINI Countryman and Paceman in the fourth quarter of 2016.

During the fourth quarter of 2016, income from continuing operations before income taxes was $646 million, an increase of 4 percent compared to the fourth quarter of 2015. Net income from continuing operations attributable to Magna International Inc. was $478 million, a decrease of 1 percent compared to the fourth quarter of 2015. Diluted earnings per share from continuing operations increased 5 cents in the fourth quarter of 2016, which includes the favorable impact of a reduced share count. Excluding unusual items, income from continuing operations before income taxes, net income from continuing operations attributable to Magna International Inc. and diluted earnings per share from continuing operations increased 6 percent, 1 percent and 7 percent, respectively, in the fourth quarter of 2016 compared to the fourth quarter of 2015.
