(1) Adjusted EBIT is a non-GAAP financial measure used to measure performance. Adjusted EBIT is defined as EBIT less income and costs which are significant in nature but expected to occur infrequently.

Shipments

Shipments totaled 4,591 units in the first half of 2018 with an increase of 256 units (+6%) compared to the corresponding period of 2017. This achievement was driven by an increase in sales of the 12-cylinder models (V12). The V12 strong performance was mainly led by the 812 Superfast. This was partially offset by the phase-out of the F12berlinetta that completed its lifecycle in 2017, as well as lower sales of LaFerrari Aperta that is finishing its limited series run.

Net revenues

Net revenues in the first half 2018 were €1,737 million, a decrease of €4 million (-0.3%; +3.7% on a constant currency basis), from €1,741 million for the six months ended 30 June 2017.

Revenues in Cars and spare parts were €1.282 million, an increase of €32 million (+2.5%) versus prior year, supported by higher volumes led by the 812 Superfast, the 488 and the GTC4Lusso families, as well as the first deliveries of the newly launched Ferrari Portofino, partially offset by the phase-out of the California T.

Mix was positive thanks to V12 models, pricing increases and the first deliveries of the strictly limited edition Ferrari J50.

Engines revenues posted a decrease of €47 million mainly due to lower engine volumes to Maserati.

Sponsorship, commercial and brand revenues (€252 million) were up €6 million (2.2%) thanks to an increase primarily attributable to sponsorship and a higher 2017 championship ranking compared to 2016, partially offset by lower brand revenues and negative foreign currency exchange impact.

EBIT

EBIT for the first half of 2018 was €428 million, an increase of €49 million, (+13%) from €379 million for the corresponding period of the 2017; the increase was primarily attributable to a positive volume impact (€36 million), a favorable product mix of €23 million, a decrease in selling, general and administrative costs of €11 million and a positive contribution from other supporting activities of €53 million, partially offset by negative foreign currency exchange impact of €70 million, and an increase in research and developments costs of €4 million.

The positive volume impact of €36 million was attributable to an increase in total shipments, driven by the 812 Superfast, the 488 and GTC4Lusso families and the first deliveries of the newly launched Ferrari Portofino, partially offset by the phase-outs of the California T and the F12berlinetta, as well as the F12tdf, which finished its limited series run in 2017. The positive product mix of €23 million was primarily attributable to the performance of V12 models and pricing increases as well as the first deliveries of the strictly limited edition Ferrari J50, partially offset by lower sales of the LaFerrari Aperta which is finishing its limited series run.

Net industrial debt

Net industrial debt at 30 June 2018, after €30 million of share buybacks and a €136 million dividend distribution, reached €472 million, substantially in line with €473 million at 31 December 2017.
