According to a report by Focus Money magazine, citing BMW’s Chief Financial Officer, the company has met its 2022 target for significantly higher pre-tax earnings compared to the prior year.
“We had no reason to correct the forecasts … Otherwise we wouldn’t be sitting here so relaxed,” BMW’s CFO Nicolas Peter was quoted as saying by Focus Money.
According to the CFO, demand is robust in America, while Europe’s order backlog is still high.
New orders are weakening in the United Kingdom and Germany, while France and Spain are doing better, Peter said.
