 Business performance better than expected

BMW Group expects sales volumes in 2010 to rise by around 10% to over 1.4 million units

Full-year EBIT margin of over 5% expected for the Automobiles segment

Financial Services segment aiming for earnings considerably above last year–
return on equity of over 18% achievable in 2010

 

Munich. Improved business conditions on the international automobile markets mean that the BMW Group now expects to report much better second-quarter and full-year earnings than previously forecast.

 

13.1% more cars were sold during the first half of the year compared to the same period last year.

 

For the full year, the company expects sales volumes to rise by around 10% to more than 1.4 million units. In addition to the recovery of the worldwide markets, strong demand for new models such as the BMW 5 Series and BMW X1 has had a positive impact on the business development.

 

In view of the improved situation on the car markets, the BMW Group now forecasts a full-year EBIT margin of over 5% for its Automobiles segment.

 

As a result of attractive market conditions and a less acute risk situation, the Financial Services segment is striving for a significant increase in pre-tax earnings with a target return on equity of over 18 %.

 

Based on this much improved outlook, the BMW Group expects the full-year profit before tax to rise more sharply than previously forecast.

 

A significant improvement in Group earnings had already been predicted for 2010. The Automobiles segment was forecast to achieve solid, single-digit sales volume growth and an EBIT margin within a low, single-digit percentage range. An improvement in Financial Services segment earnings had also been forecast.

 

Given that numerous economic risks remain in the second half of the year, the new outlook is based on the condition that the economic recovery continues and that general business conditions are not significantly dampened.

For the year 2012, the BMW Group continues to target an EBIT margin of between 8% and 10% and a return on capital employed (ROCE) in excess of 26% for its Automobiles segment. The Financial Services segment is aiming to achieve a return on equity of at least 18%.

 

The Quarterly Report to 30 June 2010 will be published on 3 August 2010.

CO2 emission information.

The following applies to consumption figures for vehicles with new type approval, September 2017 onward: The figures for fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and energy consumption are obtained in accordance with the specified measuring procedure (EC Regulation No. 715/2007), as issued and amended. The figures are for a basic-version vehicle in Germany. The bandwidths allow for differences in the choice of wheel and tire sizes and items of optional equipment and can be changed by the configuration.

Obtained on the basis of the new "Worldwide harmonized Light vehicles Test Procedure" (WLTP), the figures are converted back to the "New European Driving Cycle" (NEDC) for the sake of comparability. Values other than those stated here may be used for the purposes of taxation and for other vehicle-related duties relating to CO2 emissions.

More information about official fuel consumption figures and the official specific CO2 emissions of new passenger cars can be obtained from the "guideline on fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and current consumption of new passenger cars", available here: https://www.dat.de/co2/.
