Tesla Motors Earnings: What to Watch

Model X, China will be in focus when auto maker reports results

EARNINGS FORECAST: Adjusted losses of 59 cents a share is the consensus of analysts polled by Thomas Reuters, compared with an 11-cent a share profit a year earlier. Net losses are forecast to come in at $117 million, more than the $61.9 million loss a year earlier, as Tesla ramped up spending on buildings, engineering and new staff to prepare for growth.

REVENUE FORECAST: Tesla’s revenue is expected to rise 36% to $1.17 billion, on an adjusted basis. Tesla gives an adjusted revenue figure because of the way it accounts for a residual value guarantee that is linked to its lease program. The company already has reported that its vehicle deliveries rose 52% in the three months that ended June 30, but not all of the company’s revenues come from vehicle sales.

WHAT TO WATCH: MODEL X: Tesla is likely to give more performance details about its Model X sport-utility vehicle and perhaps a more definitive timing to start of production. It has been delayed several times, hurting the company’s cash generation. The electric SUV will have a 90 kilowatt-hour battery pack and unique, falcon-wing doors

CHINA: Tesla had a rough start in China last year, but recently the company says it is showing signs of strengthening in the world’s largest auto market. The company may give details on how it is improving its operations there.
