General Motors Co. reported a 4 percent increase in second-quarter revenue, although pension-settlement costs and other charges hurt the automaker's earnings.
GM's second-quarter revenue was $39.1 billion, up from $37.6 billion in second-quarter 2012.
Net income was $1.2 billion, down from $1.5 billion in second-quarter 2012. GM reported earnings per fully diluted share of 75 cents, down from 90 cents.
Special items that included pension-settlement costs, stock buybacks and currency devaluation reduced net income by $200 million, or 9 cents per fully diluted share.
"We continue to perform well in the world's two most important markets: the U.S. and China," said Dan Akerson, GM chairman and CEO.
"We also made further progress in our European business and saw the steady performance of our global brands Chevrolet and Cadillac. For the rest of the year, we'll focus on winning customers with high-quality vehicles at a compelling value."
