GIR Erster Beitrag: 25. Juli 2003 Letzter Beitrag: 26. Juli 2003 While the netprofit of D-C was 1.1 billion euro last year, this year it's just 109 million euro. The two biggest factors are Chrysler and the strong euro. Suprisingly Mercedes was good for a profit of 1.05 billion euro while Chrysler was responsible for a loss of 948 million euro, this coupled with a weak dollar against a strong euro exchange made the net profit crumble like a cookie. Chrysler isn't the only one suffering under the high pressue American market, Ford and GM both said their numbers don't look very bright. They both still have to deliver their EBIDTA report though. On a sidenote. * BMW sias their sales are down in all segments except the 3 series (guess why) and the supply of sheetmetal is low due to strikes in the German metal industry. * Audi also complained about the German metal industry but their sales are still strong. No numbers are available as of yet. * Peugot/Citroen said they were suffering because of a weak homemarket and competition, they were good for a net profit of 869 million euro, 12% less then last year. * Renault isn't complaining, they even managed to make a netprofit of 1.2 billion euro, 30% higher then last year. I don't know about the rest of the world but the Laguna and Megane are selling like hotcake over here.
