Mitsubishi Motors: Needs Work


PROFITS
None on a net level. Company lost $220 million last year, expects a $660 million loss this year.

MODELS
Renowned for its small-car technology, but it is falling behind in new model launches.

SALES
Rising fast from a small base in the U.S., but struggling in the core Japan market.

DEBT
Huge. Almost $14 billion. Shedding the debt is essential.
