    yep... and Ford was quite successful in turning around Mazda (from the brink of extinction and mediocre products)

    ASIA PACIFIC AND AFRICA/MAZDA

    For the full year, Asia Pacific and Africa/Mazda earned a combined pre-tax profit of $163 million, compared with $46 million a year ago. The improvement of $117 million primarily reflected higher profits from Ford's investment in Mazda and associated operations.
    btw, the Ford Group's Net Income for 2004 is around $3.5B. not bad... though the fourth quarter earnings isn't that hot...
