Item 2.05. Costs Associated With Exit or Disposal Activities.

Ford Motor Company Brasil Ltda. (“Ford Brazil”), a subsidiary of Ford Motor Company (the “Company”), announced today its plan of February 15, 2019 to exit the commercial heavy truck business in South America.  As a result, Ford Brazil will cease production at the São Bernardo do Campo plant in Brazil during 2019, ending sales in South America of the Cargo heavy truck lineup, F-4000, and F-350, as well as Fiesta cars.  In connection with this announcement, the Company currently expects to record pre-tax special item charges of about $460 million.  The charges will include approximately $100 million of non-cash charges for accelerated depreciation and amortization.  The remaining charges of about $360 million will be paid in cash and are primarily attributable to separation and termination payments for employees, dealers, and suppliers.  Most of these pre-tax special item charges and cash outflows will be recorded in 2019. 


Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
