BMW is expecting their sales to be able to become higher and higher this coming year as their new car models increase demand. This is according to the finance chief of the said German car-making company as he spoke on Saturday to a certain newspaper, but he no longer released more specific sets of information.
From the statement of Friedrich Eichiner and as relayed by Boersen Zeitung, he said that they are in expectation of a bigger growth during the year 2015 as they are also anticipating to witness all the full effects from their new car models reaching today’s market on the process of production and their sales. These are seen to manifest as early as the coming year.
They also added that they are going to introduce or launch more new models of their prestigious cars by the year 2015. Furthermore, they said that at this moment, they still find it quite difficult to say and determine how their steps are going to put an impact on their growth.
The company’s finance chief also confirmed the forecast of BMW for the year 2014 for the profit of their group to increase by up until 10 percent, as well as their operating margin in their car segment to reach eight to ten percent.
In addition, Eichner mentioned that he did not see any good reason for the German car manufacturing company to consider being merged with any other carmaker in the industry today.
He stated that he cannot really think of good examples of such move in the kind of car industry that we have today. With the broad portfolio that the company has, as well as the clear position that they have gained in their car segment which is obviously soaring, they seem to see no need for the company they are managing to think of merging or collaborating with other carmakers.
