Nissan Has Worst Year In a Decade

Description

TOKYO -- Nissan cut its full-year profit forecast to its lowest in nearly a decade due to weakness in the United States, just as it adjusts to life without Carlos Ghosn and charts its future with alliance partner Renault. The Japanese automaker expects operating profit for the year ended March to drop 45 percent versus a year earlier to 318 billion yen ($2.84 billion), from a previous forecast for 450 billion yen, on expenses related to extending vehicle warranties in the United States, its biggest market. In a statement on Wednesday, Nissan said sales had taken a hit in the aftermath of the arrest of Ghosn, its former chairman, contributing to a decline in profit to its lowest since the year ended March 2010.
