Deliveries and market share up, despite weak market trend +++ EBIT and free cash flow rise significantly in third quarter +++ High upfront expenditure for future-oriented technologies +++ Outlook for financial year 2019 reaffirmed +++ Zipse: “The decisive transformation is taking place inside the vehicle” 

Munich. The BMW Group recorded growth in deliveries, revenues and earnings in the third quarter and is therefore well on its way to achieving its targets for 2019. Group net profit increased at a double-digit percentage rate, helped to some extent by a base effect from the previous year’s reported figures. Moreover, profitability has continued to improve over the course of the nine-month period. To compensate for the high upfront expenditure on future-oriented technologies, the BMW Group is working hard on continually improving efficiency. 

“At the nine-month stage, we are well on our way to achieving our targets for the year as a whole,” said Oliver Zipse, Chairman of the Board of Management of BMW AG, in Munich on Wednesday. “However, we are looking further into the future, having recognised that far-reaching technological transformation is a great opportunity for the BMW Group. I am convinced that our business model will only benefit from this. The vehicle of the future, with all its integrated digital functions, is a high-tech product of a complexity that is still underestimated.”
