Continental net income up almost a quarter in “extremely successful” 2014

The CEO of Continental Corporation has described 2014 as “another extremely successful financial year” and confirmed that all targets set for the year were reached. “When evaluating the results, we should not overlook the fact that there was, in some cases, very weak growth in Europe, Russia, and South America,” elaborated Dr. Elmar Degenhart. “There were also significant exchange rate fluctuations.

In light of this, it is remarkable that profit after taxes of just under €2.4 billion or €11.88 per share could be achieved.”
