The automaker says it will take a $2.2 billion loss due to a drop in discount rates, which leads the company to increase the amount of money that is needed to be contributed for future pensions benefits.

In breaking down the math, Ford will record a $2 billion loss from pension plans outside the U.S., then another $600 million from other post-retirement plans globally. You then figure in the $400 million gain from U.S. pensions plans.
It will result in a hit to Ford's net income by about $1.7 billion in the quarter. Adjusted per share earnings won't be affected.
