General Motors Corp. posted net income for 2006, excluding special items, of $2.2 billion, or $3.88 per share fully diluted, compared with a net loss of $3.2 billion, or $5.67 per share, in 2005, marking a $5.4 billion improvement. GM earned record revenue of $207 billion in 2006, compared with $195 billion in 2005. "We needed 2006 to be a big year, and it was," GM Chairman and CEO Rick Wagoner said. "Our performance last year reflects the significant progress we've made toward transforming GM into a more competitive, global business focused on long-term, sustainable success. "The improvement is a credit to our employees, union partners, dealers and suppliers worldwide. It's also validation that our strategy is working, and faster than many people thought possible. "But nobody at GM is declaring victory, because we all know there is still a lot more work to do to achieve our goals of steady growth, solid profitability and positive cash flow generation. We're confident that the momentum we generated in 2006 will continue to build through this year and beyond." GM sold 9.1 million vehicles worldwide in 2006.
