Tesla Motors Inc (TSLA) Earnings Preview Q2 2015:
What To Look For Ahead Of The Model X Rollout
Tesla Motors Inc. (Nasdaq:TSLA) is entering an important new phase in its push to overtake Nissan Motors as the automotive history’s biggest electric-car manufacturer. If all goes according to CEO Elon Musk’s plan, the first Tesla Model X sport utility vehicles will hit the streets by late September. And by next summer, the auto world will get its first peek at a prototype for the modestly priced Tesla for Everyman: the Model 3, due out in early 2018.
Musk’s blueprint also includes an expansion of Tesla’s automotive and energy storage production, and hitting milestones in the construction of the company’s multibillion-dollar “Gigafactory” battery facility in Nevada.
Of course, as all these gears spin in unison, a lot could go wrong.
The company is banking on the notion that it can quickly transition from a boutique manufacturer to a mass-producer of electric cars, as it attempts to grow from the roughly 32,000 cars it sold last year to at least 500,000 by 2020. And Tesla’s energy unit, too is dependent on an assumption that businesses and homeowners will rapidly adopt its power storage units.
But any number of missteps could scuttle Tesla’s growth. The company, for instance, is just one automotive safety recall away from the entire operation crashing down on the heads of its exuberant shareholders.

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.
