CNH Industrial N.V. (NYSE:CNHI / MI:CNHI) today announced consolidated revenues of $7,540 million for the first quarter 2014, in line with Q1 2013. Net sales of Industrial Activities were $7,213 million in Q1 2014, a 0.6% decrease compared to the prior year (+1.3% on a constant currency basis).

Net of a 1.9% negative impact of currency translation, net sales increased in Construction Equipment and Powertrain, offsetting reduced net sales for Agricultural Equipment, primarily in LATAM. Net sales for Commercial Vehicles were substantially flat compared to Q1 2013.

Net sales for Agricultural Equipment were $3,706 million for the quarter, down 6.0% from Q1 2013 (-3.9% on a constant currency basis), mainly as a result of decreased volumes primarily in LATAM and APAC and less favourable product mix. The geographic distribution of net sales for the period was 48% NAFTA, 31% EMEA, 11% LATAM and 10% APAC.

Worldwide Agricultural Equipment market share was lower for tractors and combines, mainly due to the expected timing impact from the transition to Tier 4B final emission regulations in major markets. The Company's worldwide production of Agricultural Equipment was 27% above retail sales for the quarter, consistent with past years as the Company increases inventory in the first quarter in anticipation of the spring and summer selling seasons.

Agricultural Equipment operating profit was $464 million for the quarter ($468 million in Q1 2013). Operating margin was 0.6 p.p. higher at 12.5%, with net price realization and improved industrial performance offsetting negative volume and mix.
