NASHVILLE, Tenn., Aug. 1, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Cat Financial reported second-quarter 2023 revenues of $793 million, an increase of $125 million, or 19%, compared with $668 million in the second quarter of 2022. Second-quarter 2023 profit was $150 million, an increase of $7 million, or 5%, compared with $143 million in the second quarter of 2022. The increase in revenues was primarily due to a $120 million favorable impact from higher average financing rates.

Second-quarter 2023 profit before income taxes was $205 million, an increase of $6 million, or 3%, compared with $199 million in the second quarter of 2022. The increase was mainly due to a $44 million favorable impact from a lower provision for credit losses and a $12 million increase in net yield on average earning assets, partially offset by unfavorable currency impacts of $27 million and an $18 million increase in general, operating and administrative expenses.

The provision for income taxes reflected an estimated annual tax rate of 26% for both the second quarter of 2023 and 2022.

During the second quarter of 2023, retail new business volume was $3.15 billion, an increase of $57 million, or 2%, compared with $3.10 billion in the second quarter of 2022. The increase was primarily driven by higher volume in Mining, partially offset by lower volume in EAME and Latin America.

At the end of the second quarter of 2023, past dues at Cat Financial were 2.15%, compared with 2.19% at the end of the second quarter of 2022. Write-offs, net of recoveries, were $8 million for the second quarter of 2023, compared with less than $1 million for the second quarter of 2022. As of June 30, 2023, Cat Financial's allowance for credit losses totaled $320 million, or 1.15% of finance receivables, compared with $348 million, or 1.27% of finance receivables at March 31, 2023. The allowance for credit losses at year-end 2022 was $346 million, or 1.29% of finance receivables.

"Cat Financial's second-quarter results reflected strong portfolio performance," said Dave Walton, President of Cat Financial and Senior Vice President with responsibility for the Financial Products Division of Caterpillar Inc. "The global Cat Financial team remains focused on executing our strategy and providing financial services solutions to Caterpillar customers and dealers worldwide."

Natural resources investments are generally volatile, with higher headline risk than other sectors. They tend to be more sensitive to economic data, political and regulatory events, and underlying commodity prices. The prices of natural resources investments are influenced by factors such as the costs of underlying commodities like oil, gas, metals, and coal. These investments may trade on various exchanges and experience price fluctuations due to short-term demand, supply, and investment flows.

Natural resource investments often respond more sensitively to global events and economic data, including natural disasters, political turmoil, pandemics, or the release of employment data.

Investing in foreign markets may carry greater risks than domestic markets, including political, currency, economic, and market risks. It is essential to evaluate if trading in low-priced and international securities is appropriate for your circumstances and financial resources. Past performance does not guarantee future results.

MineStockers Inc., its affiliates, family, friends, employees, associates, and others may hold positions in the securities it covers. Some of the companies covered may be paying clients of the production.

No investment process is risk-free, and profitability is not guaranteed; investors may lose their entire investment. No investment strategy or risk management technique can guarantee returns or eliminate risk in any market environment. Diversification does not ensure a profit or protect against loss. Investing in foreign securities involves risks not associated with domestic investments, such as currency fluctuations, political and economic instability, and differing accounting standards, potentially leading to greater share price volatility. The prices of small- and mid-cap company stocks generally experience higher volatility than large-company stocks and may involve higher risks. Smaller companies may lack the management expertise, financial resources, product diversification, and competitive strengths needed to withstand adverse economic conditions.
