Audi Car Group – Financial Results | Audi: after first quarter key financial figures continue on high level

Although the economic climate has deteriorated further in a number of European countries, Audi enjoyed a very successful opening quarter with some 369,500 deliveries to customers.

With €11.734 billion revenue for the first three months of 2013 the Ingolstadt-based carmaker nearly matched the previous year’s record level. The operating profit of €1.307 billion translates into an operating return on sales of 11.1 percent – well above the strategic target corridor of eight to ten percent.

The Audi company all the while remains committed to its target corridor for operating return on sales.

From January through March 2013, the Audi brand delivered 369,494 (2012: 346,105) vehicles worldwide, besting the previous year’s record total by 6.8 percent.

Audi enjoyed sales growth in Europe, Asia and North America alike. Models that generated considerable interest among customers included the new Audi A3, the Audi A1 Sportback and the Audi A4 model line as well as the Q3 and Q5 SUVs.

At €11.734 billion, Q1 2013 revenue for the Audi Group almost equaled the record of €12.389 billion set in 2012.

Against a backdrop of increased expenditures for new products and technologies – as well as considerable advance payments toward expanding Audi’s international production network – the Audi Group achieved an operating profit of €1.307 (2012: 1.410) billion. This equates to a year-on-year drop of 7.3 percent.

Nevertheless, the operating return on sales of 11.1 (2012: 11.4) percent once again exceeded the strategic target corridor of eight to ten percent.

The first three months of the year saw the Audi Group earn €1.432 (2012: €1.511) billion pre-tax – almost on par with the corresponding period of the previous year. This resulted in a pre-tax return on sales of 12.2 (2012: 12.2) percent.

5-liter supercharged V8 engine and will reach 60 mph in 4.0 seconds, and a top speed of 186 mph (electronically limited)2. The F-TYPE S Coupe and F-TYPE Coupe are powered by 3-liter supercharged V6 engines in 380hp and 340hp forms respectively, giving 0-60 mph in 4.8/5.1 seconds and top speeds of 171/161 mph2.

The F-TYPE Coupe visual message is defined by three key ‘heart lines’, that visual message beginning with the formidable grille. It is from the twin ‘shark gill’ openings that sit either side of the grille that the essential first heart line – which mirrors the design of the F-TYPE Convertible – flows and begins to take shape. Running up through the headlamp, and accentuated by the LED ‘J blade’ signature running lamps, the line then arcs up over the front wheel arch before dropping elegantly as it runs through the door, washing out into the muscular rear haunch.

The second heart line begins at the rear edge of the door, swelling outwards and upwards to create a visually strong wheel arch, emphasizing the car’s rear-wheel drive layout, before dropping vertically through the tail lamp ...
