Nissan's quarterly operating profit was 82.4 billion yen ($752 million) between October and December, down from 163.51 billion a year earlier. The automaker took a 39.6 billion yen hit in the quarter due to costs related to improper procedures for final inspections on vehicles produced at its Japan plants, while U.S. marketing and sales expenses, which include incentives, cost the automak...
