First Published Jul 30 2014 11:04 am • Last Updated Jul 30 2014 11:04 am

Milan • Italian carmaker Fiat SpA, which controls Chrysler, says its second-quarter profits dropped by more than a half due to lower performance in North and Latin America.

Fiat said Wednesday that net profit was $263 million, compared with $580 million in the same period last year.

North American volumes were up 10 percent, driven by incentives to sell legacy Chrysler vehicles, but the incentives also cut into profits. Earnings before interest and tax in the region dropped 18 percent to $449 million.

In Latin America, revenues dropped 13 percent as vehicle shipments fell 21 percent.

Fiat said revenues in the quarter rose to $17.5 billion, up $750 million over the same quarter last year.

Fiat is currently finalizing its merger with Chrysler.
