In the first half of 2017, ŠKODA AUTO increases deliveries, sales revenue and operating profit

28/07/2017
ŠKODA AUTO continues its success. In the first half of 2017, the Czech car manufacturer increased its deliveries, sales revenue and operating profit. From January to June, deliveries to customers rose by 2.8% to the new record of 585,000 vehicles. Sales revenue grew by 22.6% to 8.720 billion euros, surpassing the 8-billion-euro mark for the first time in the first half of any year. Compared to the same period last year, operating profit increased by 25.5% to 860 million euros.

Mladá Boleslav, 28 July 2017: “ŠKODA AUTO also grew strongly in the first half of 2017,” said ŠKODA AUTO CEO Bernhard Maier. “Our fresh and attractive model range that we extended in February with an important component, the ŠKODA KODIAQ, is extremely well-received by the customers. Committed demand remains good ensuring factories work at full capacity and we are therefore optimistic looking ahead to the second half of the year. In the fourth quarter, we will further boost growth with the market launch of the new ŠKODA KAROQ compact SUV,” said Bernhard Maier.

ŠKODA AUTO’s sales revenues increased by 22.6% to 8.720 billion euros in the first half of the year (first half of 2016: 7.114 billion euros). In the same period, operating profit recorded a significant increase of 25.5% to 860 million euros (first half of 2016: 685 million euros). The return on sales was 9.9%, up from 9.6% in the first half of 2016. Net cash flow reached 1.159 billion euros (first half of 2016: 583 million euros).

“The demanding market environment is a big challenge for the entire industry,” said ŠKODA AUTO Board Member for Finance Klaus-Dieter Schürmann. “With very good results, ŠKODA AUTO proves its financial strength and yield security. Favourable volume and mix effects were important factors for ŠKODA’s further improved profitability. Exchange rates which developed to our advantage also contributed to this year’s strong interim results,” added Schürmann.

As part of the ŠKODA Strategy 2025, the brand will be vigorously pressing ahead with the expansion of its model range in the coming years. The primary focus will be on expanding the SUV portfolio. With a total of 27,100 deliveries since February, the new ŠKODA KODIAQ SUV has had a successful start in the markets worldwide. With the introduction of the ŠKODA KAROQ, the company is now setting the next milestone. The new compact SUV celebrated its world premiere on 18 May in Stockholm.

ŠKODA AUTO has seamlessly continued its 2017 record results: In January, the Czech carmaker delivered 103,800 vehicles to customers worldwide, 10.7% more than in the same period last year (January 2017: 93,800), and more than in any previous January. ŠKODA models were particularly in demand in Europe (+ 13.7%), Russia (+ 26%) and India (+ 13.8%). The new SUV models KODIAQ and KAROQ made significant contributions to the success.
ŠKODA has taken home the double at the annual Fleet World Honours. The ŠKODA Superb won the accolade for Best Upper Medium Car for an impressive third consecutive year, and the recently launched seven-seat Kodiaq took the title of Best Large Family Car of the Year.
The ŠKODA Fabia is embarking on the next chapter of its success story with wide-ranging enhancements in terms of both design and technology. The popular small car made by the Czech carmaker will now boast even greater appeal thanks to restyled front and rear sections, the introduction of LED head and rear lights, as well as a refined interior. Lively and efficient 1.0 petrol engines, as well as additional assistance systems underline the sophisticated character of the ŠKODA Fabia. The revised model is being unveiled at the International Motor Show 2018 in Geneva. The market launch is in the second half of 2018.
ŠKODA has today announced a new partnership with leading UK artist Paloma Faith, in the brand’s next installment of its Driven by Something Different campaign.
ŠKODA has continued its winning streak at the What Car? Awards, driving off with two category wins and no fewer than five price point victories. Widely regarded as the ‘Oscars’ of the automotive world, the 2018 What Car? Awards are among the most coveted in the industry. The new Octavia and Superb once again proved unbeatable in the eyes of the What Car? judging panel – with both models repeating their victories in their respective sectors.
ŠKODA UK has ended 2017 on a high, with 79,758 vehicles new car registrations. In the face of a declining overall UK market (down 5.65 per cent to 2.54 million cars), ŠKODA has grown its share of new car registrations by 0.16 per cent to a record 3.14 per cent overall.
