The Audi Group posts robust financial figures at the end of the third quarter of 2017 and continues to push ahead with the transformation of its business. In the first nine months of the year, despite many challenges the Company achieved revenue of €44.2 billion and operating profit of €3.9 billion. This represents an operating return on sales of 8.9 percent. The coming months will see Audi embark on a densely packed program of production starts for 2018, prepare the market introduction of an array of new models and accelerate on its strategic path towards the future.

The Audi Group achieved revenue of €30.1 billion and operating profit of €2.7 billion in the first half of 2017. Audi improved its operating performance compared with the first half of last year. The operating return on sales increased to 8.9 percent and is clearly within the target corridor of 8 to 10 percent. Worldwide deliveries of Audi brand cars were lower than in the first half of 2016 following the temporary decrease in sales in China. In June, unit sales in China increased again and reached their highest ever level for the month of June. The company anticipates stronger sales worldwide in the second half of the year, while advance expenditure for new models will have a greater financial impact than in the first six months of this year.
