Fiat Chrysler shares fall 10 percent after weak 2019 guidance

Reuters  |  MILAN 

(Reuters) - (FCA) shares fell nearly 10 percent on Thursday after the carmaker gave a weaker-than-expected guidance for profits and industrial cash flow at the group this year.

The world's seventh-largest carmaker said it expects to report 2019 adjusted earnings before interest and tax (EBIT), excluding the unit it agreed to sell, of more than 6.7 billion euros ($7.59 billion), below analysts expectations of around 7.3 billion euros.

said 2018 adjusted EBIT, excluding Magneti Marelli, came in at 6.7 billion euros.

Milan-listed shares were down 9.8 percent by 1203 GMT, underperforming a 1.6 percent fall in Milan's blue-chip index.
