Daimler Trucks Announces Earnings and Operational Results for the First Quarter of 2015; Provides Earnings Guidance for the Year of 2015

Daimler Trucks announced earnings and operational results for the first quarter of 2015. For the quarter, the company reported EBIT (as reported) of EUR 472 million against EUR 341 million a year ago. EBIT from ongoing business was EUR 536 million against EUR 346 million a year ago. Revenue was EUR 8,414 million against EUR 7,121 million a year ago. There were positive effects on the development of earnings in particular from increased unit sales in the NAFTA region and exchange-rate changes. The realization of further efficiencies had a positive impact on earnings. Negative effects on the earnings posted by Daimler Trucks resulted above all from lower unit sales in Latin America and Indonesia, higher warranty costs and expenditure for capacity expansion. EBIT was reduced also by workforce actions in the context of the ongoing optimization program in Brazil. For the quarter, the company sold 112,424 units against 108,529 units a year ago. For the full year, the company expects to achieve significant increase in unit sales. The company expects to achieve EBIT targets significantly above the prior year level.
