Financial Services Reports Unaudited Earnings Results for the Fourth Quarter and Year Ended October 31, 2014; Provides Earnings Guidance for Fiscal 2015

Financial Services reported unaudited earnings results for the fourth quarter and year ended October 31, 2014. For the quarter, net income attributable to Deere & Company of $172.2 million compared with $157.1 million in 2013. The improvement was due to growth in the credit portfolio, partially offset by lower crop insurance margins, higher selling, administrative and general expenses and a higher provision for credit losses. Additionally, yearly results benefited from a more favorable effective tax rate. Net sales and revenues were $762 million against $699 million a year ago. Operating profit was $261 million against $241 million a year ago. For the year, net income attributable to Deere & Company of $624.5 million compared with $565.0 million in 2013. The improvement was due to growth in the credit portfolio, partially offset by lower crop insurance margins, higher selling, administrative and general expenses and a higher provision for credit losses. Additionally, yearly results benefited from a more favorable effective tax rate. Net sales and revenues were $2,577 million against $2,349 million a year ago. Operating profit was $921 million against $870 million a year ago. For fiscal-year 2015 net income attributable to Deere & Company for the financial services operations is expected to be approximately $610 million. The outlook reflects a decline from the prior year due primarily to an expected increase in the provision for credit losses, versus the low level of 2014, and a less favorable tax rate. These factors are projected to be partially offset by growth in the credit portfolio and higher crop insurance margins.
