NASHVILLE, Tenn., April 27, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Cat Financial reported first-quarter 2023 revenues of $768 million, an increase of $116 million, or 18%, compared with $652 million in the first quarter of 2022. First-quarter 2023 profit was $149 million, an increase of $6 million, or 4%, compared with $143 million in the first quarter of 2022. The increase in revenues was primarily due to a $123 million favorable impact from higher average financing rates.

First-quarter 2023 profit before income taxes was $204 million, an increase of $11 million, or 6%, compared with $193 million in the first quarter of 2022. The increase was mainly due to a $20 million increase in net yield on average earning assets and an $18 million favorable impact from a lower provision for credit losses. These favorable impacts were partially offset by a $13 million unfavorable impact from currency exchange losses and a $9 million unfavorable impact from mark-to-market adjustments on derivative contracts.

The provision for income taxes reflected an estimated annual tax rate of 26% in the first quarter of 2023, compared with 25% in the first quarter of 2022.

During the first quarter of 2023, retail new business volume was $2.46 billion, a decrease of $315 million, or 11%, compared with $2.78 billion in the first quarter of 2022. The decrease was primarily driven by lower volume in North America and Asia/Pacific, partially offset by increases in Power Finance and Mining.

At the end of the first quarter of 2023, past dues at Cat Financial were 2.00%, compared with 2.05% at the end of the first quarter of 2022. Write-offs, net of recoveries, were $10 million for the first quarter of 2023, compared with $8 million for the first quarter of 2022. As of March 31, 2023, Cat Financial's allowance for credit losses totaled $348 million, or 1.27% of finance receivables, compared with $346 million, or 1.29% of finance receivables at December 31, 2022.
