Tesla posts record Q2 profit

Tesla reported an adjusted EPS of $1.45 compared to the 98 cents expected by the market. It also beat revenue expectations of $11.30 billion, with figures coming in at $11.96 billion

The company’s overall automotive revenue accounted for $10.21 billion, out of which $354 million came from sales of regulatory credits. Second place is taken by services and other revenues totaling $951 million. Tesla now operates 598 stores and service centers and a mobile service fleet that includes 1,091 vehicles. Compared to last year’s 121% increase, this quarter reported a growth of only 34%.

Moreover, Tesla is on track to build the first Model Y sedans in new Austin and Berlin facilities before the end of 2021. Still, during the investor call, Elon Musk warned that the global shortage in semiconductor supplies remains a severe problem and could impact production rates over the second half of the year.

However, the company’s cash position decreased about 5% from last quarter, reaching $16.23 billion. According to Tesla, the decline was “driven mainly by net debt and finance lease repayments of $1.6B, partially offset by the free cash flow of $619M.”

Following the release, Tesla stock price traded 1% higher.
