Shares of General Motors are sinking in pre-market trading following the release of quarterly earnings results that missed consensus Wall Street estimates on both the top and bottom lines.
Right now, shares are down more than 5%.
The company reported earnings per share of $US0.67 in the quarter ended December 31, below consensus expectations of $US0.87.
Revenues totaled $US40.5 billion, below the $US40.9 billion estimate.
The company said the earnings miss was largely because of restructuring costs, but also because of higher taxes.
