BMW Product Split 2006
In 2005 the BMW Group continued to perform successfully
and was able to achieve the targets communicated since the beginning
of the year. As a result of the significant sales volume increase and
on-going efficiency improvement measures, the negative impact of adverse
currency effects and high raw material prices was almost completely
offset by the year-end. The profit before tax for 2005, at euro 3,287
million, was, as predicted, approximately at the same high level as
in the previous year (2004: euro 3,583 million/-8.3%).
During the past year, the BMW Group has once again
been able to prove its inherent strength, despite the difficult conditions
facing the worldwide automobile industry and a fair value loss recognized
on the exchangeable bond option on the shares of Rolls Royce plc, London
held by the BMW Group. The increase in the share price of the engine
manufacturer resulted in a non-cash expense of euro 356 million being
recorded in 2005. The profit before financial result and taxes (EBIT)
increased by 0.5% to a new record level of euro 3,793 (2004: euro 3,774
In the aircraft engines business BMW was in a joint venture with
relation supported BMW to acquire the rights for using the brand name
of Rolls Royce from 2003 on, for which BMW paid £ 40 Mill. In the beginning
of 2000 the aircraft engine division was sold.
