Global 500 rank: 13
2007 loss ($ millions): $2,723*
Even though Ford again appears on the losers list, its loss narrowed to $2.7 billion in 2007, compared with $12.6 billion a year earlier, partly due to sharp cost cutting.
Though Ford expects to keep belt tightening in 2008 - it reduced corporate costs by $1.8 billion through the first quarter - the company says it will likely remain in the red for another year.
* Also lost money in 2006.
