Ford’s departure from Brazil will have a $4.1bn impact

Ford’s decision to shut down production in Brazil will have a financial impact of approximately $4.1 billion in non-recurring expenses, according to information released by the automaker. Of the total, approximately $2.5 billion will have a direct impact on the cash flow of the U.S. group, mostly related to compensation, termination, agreements and other payments. Another $1.6 billion will come from the accounting impact attributed to the write-off of tax credits, accelerated depreciation and amortisation of fixed assets.
