After Dramatic Profit Drops, Nissan Will Cut 12,500 Jobs
Over the last fiscal quarter, the Japanese automaker's operating profits plummeted 99%.
Nissan has announced it plans to cut 12,500 jobs due to a drop in profits. This is more than double the number of jobs it originally planned to cut back in May.
Over the last fiscal quarter, the Japanese automaker's operating profits have reached "rock bottom", plummeting 99%. Overall revenue fell 13% compared to the same time last year.
Many analysts believe the drop was fueled by the drama surrounding former Nissan CEO, Carlos Ghosn. Since late last year, the former executive was hit with several charges, including financial misconduct for allegedly funneling money from Nissan for personal use.
To combat some of its losses, Nissan said it will cut 10% of its current production by the end of fiscal year 2022 to improve competition in the market. However, current CEO Hiroto Saikawa says it will take 2 to 3 years to get numbers back to what they used to be.
