CNH INDUSTRIAL N.V.
Form 6-K for the month of March 2014
The following exhibits are furnished herewith:

|Exhibit 99.2.||CNH Industrial Publishes its EU Annual Report and Announces Future Financial Reporting Plans|
Certain statements contained in this document that are not statements of historical fact constitute forward-looking statements, notwithstanding that such statements are not specifically identified. Words such as forecast, projection, outlook, prospects, expected, estimates, plan, anticipate, intend, believe, or other words or phrases to the same effect often identify forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance. Rather, they are based on current views and assumptions and involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors, many of which are outside the control of CNH Industrial N.V. (the Company and together with the Companys subsidiaries, the Group) and are difficult to predict. If any of these risks and uncertainties materialize or other assumptions underlying any of the forward-looking statements prove to be incorrect the actual results or developments may differ materially from any future results or developments expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements. Factors, risks, and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those contemplated by the forward-looking statements include, among others: the many interrelated factors that affect consumer confidence and worldwide demand for capital goods and capital goods-related products; factors affecting the agricultural business including commodity prices, weather, floods, earthquakes or other natural disasters, and government farm programs; general economic conditions in each of the Groups markets; changes in government policies regarding banking, monetary and fiscal policies; legislation, particularly relating to capital goods-related issues such as agriculture, the environment, debt relief and subsidy program policies, trade and commerce and infrastructure development; actions of competitors in the various industries in which the Group competes; development and use of new technologies and technological difficulties; production difficulties, including capacity and supply constraints and excess inventory levels; labor relations; interest rates and currency exchange rates; inflation and deflation; energy prices; housing starts and other construction activity; the Groups ability to obtain financing or to refinance existing debt; a decline in the price of used vehicles; the resolution of pending litigation and investigations; the evolution of the Groups alliance with Kobelco Construction Machinery Co., Ltd; the Groups pension plans and other post-employment obligations; political and civil unrest; volatility and deterioration of capital and financial markets, including further worsening of the Eurozone sovereign debt crisis, other similar risks and uncertainties; and the Groups success in managing the risks involved in the foregoing. Additional information concerning factors, risks, and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially is contained in the registration statement declared effective by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the SEC) on June 21, 2013 and is incorporated by reference herein. Investors should refer and consider the incorporated information on risks, factors, and uncertainties in addition to the information presented here. Forward-looking statements speak only as of the date on which such statements are made. Furthermore, in light of ongoing difficult macroeconomic conditions, both globally and in the industries in which the Group operates, it is particularly difficult to forecast results, and any estimates or forecasts of particular periods that are provided in this document are uncertain. Accordingly, investors should not place undue reliance on such forward-looking statements. Actual results could differ materially from those anticipated in such forward-looking statements. The Company does not undertake an obligation to update or revise publicly any forward-looking statements.
The Groups outlook is based upon assumptions relating to the factors described in the earnings release, which are sometimes based upon estimates and data received from third parties. Such estimates and data are often revised. The Group undertakes no obligation to update or revise its outlook, whether as a result of new developments or otherwise. Further information concerning the Group and its businesses, including factors that potentially could materially affect the Groups financial results, is included in the Groups other filings with the SEC, the AFM and CONSOB.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned, thereunto duly authorized.
