The company attributed the fall to weaker demand in China, which outweighed the benefits of a weaker Euro. Core earnings in the three months to the end of June were 2.52 billion euros.
The drop in earnings was despite a weaker euro helping to drive a 20% jump in group sales to 23.9 billion euros. German news agency DPA reported today that the global car deliveries of its flagship BMW, compact urban Mini and top-of-the-range Rolls-Royce brands rose 7.5% to 573,079. (QNA)
