Car division slows daimler down again in 2013
At mercedes benz cars, earnings before interest and taxes (ebit) for the current year will actually be "slightly below" the previous year, announced zetsche at the presentation of the financial statements on thursday in stuttgart.
In 2012, operating profit at mercedes benz cars had fallen by 15 percent to 4.4 billion euros. Only from 2014 onwards did the manager promise a return to rising profits for the automotive division. Zetsche’s imminent contract extension until 2018 comes under difficult circumstances.
