    BMW Q3 Motorrad edit
    This is an edit of the full BMW Q3 Report focusing on the Motorrad Segment. It is intended for information purposes only. Investors should read the full report and seek appropriate advice.


    BWM Motorrad Deliveries
    In the Motorcycles segment, third-quarter deliveries rose by 1.0% to a new record level (39,818 units; 2017: 39,429 units), despite the model change in the mid-class segment. Over the nine-month period, 126,793 units, the number of motorcycles delivered remained similar to the previous year (2017: 127,818 units; -0.8%).


    International motorcycle markets

    Motorcycle markets in the 250 cc plus class generally performed well during the first nine months of 2018, with registrations up by 2.7 % worldwide. Europe’s markets showed a welcome positive trend, expanding at an overall rate of 5.7 %. After performing well in the first half of the year, the German market continued its positive trend in the third quarter. For the period from January to September, the number of new registrations grew by 8.5 %. Rises were also recorded in Italy (+ 4.3 %) and Spain (+ 4.7 %). The French motorcycle market grew even more strongly (+ 5.8 %). The US market remained weak, reflected in a further 4.2 % drop on the previous year.

    Motorcycles Segment

    Motorcycle deliveries up in third quarter

    BMW Motorrad delivered 39,818 motorcycles in the period from July to September 2018, slightly up (+1.0 %) on the previous year’s corresponding figure and there- fore setting a new record for a third quarter (2017: 39,429 units). Despite the model change in the mid- class Adventure segment in the first half of the year, deliveries to customers totaling 126,793 units in the first nine months were similar to the previous year (2017: 127,818 units; – 0.8 %).

    In Europe, motorcycle deliveries between January and September 2018 totaled 77,788 units (2017: 82,601 units; – 5.8 %), including 17,798 units in Germany (2017: 20,403 units; –12.8 %), 12,955 units in France (2017: 13,558 units; – 4.4 %) and 11,827 units in Italy (2017: 12,160 units; – 2.7 %). Spain also recorded a slight year-on-year drop, with deliveries down to 8,179 units (2017: 8,282 units; –1.2 %). By contrast, the number of motorcycles sold on the highly competitive but contracting US market, rose slightly by 3.7 % to 10,581 units (2017: 10,200 units).

    Motorcycle production influenced by model changes

    A total of 37,172 motorcycles rolled off production lines between July and September of the current year (2017: 41,443 units; –10.3 %). A total of 125,180 units were manufactured during the nine-month period (2017: 146,995 units; –14.8 %). The significant reduction in production volume was primarily attributable to the model change in the mid-class segment.

    Revenues and earnings down on the previous year1
    Motorcycles segment revenues and earnings were negatively impacted by the ramp-up situation attributable to multiple model changes. Third-quarter revenues fell to €476 million (2017: €5121 million; – 7,0 %), generating a segment EBIT of €33 million (2017: €531 million; – 37.7 %) and an EBIT margin of 6.9 % (2017: 10.41%; – 3.5 percentage points). Profit before tax fell accordingly to €31 million (2017: €531 mil- lion; – 41.5 %).

    Nine-month revenues totaled €1,658 million (2017: €1,8271 million; – 9.3 %). The segment recorded an EBIT margin of 12.5 % (2017: 15.41%; – 2.9 percentage points) on an EBIT figure of €208 million (2017: €2821 million; – 26.2 %). Profit before tax stood at €205 mil- lion (2017: €2811 million; – 27.0 %).

    Slight increase in workforce
    The BMW Group had a workforce of 3,622 employees in the Motorcycles segment at the end of the reporting period (31 December 2017: 3,506 employees; + 3.3 %)

    motorcycles segment

    Motorcycles segment revenues fell moderately com- pared to the first nine months of the previous year, mainly due to the ramp-up situation attributable to multiple model changes. The decrease was also exacerbated by product mix and currency effects.

    Nine-month profit before tax was therefore significantly lower than one year earlier.

    Economic trend with increasing uncertainties
    Automobile and motorcycle deliveries – new record figures targeted
    BMW Group changes outlook for full financial year


    The report on outlook, risks and opportunities describes the expected development of the BMW Group, including material risks and opportunities, from a Group management perspective. It contains for- ward-looking statements and is based on expectations and assessments that are subject to uncertainty. As a result, actual outcomes, including those attributable to political and economic developments, could differ – either positively or negatively – from those described below. Further information on this topic is provided in the Annual Report 2017 (Outlook, pp. 90, Risks and Opportunities, pp. 96).

    Global economy impacted by increasing trade disputes

    The International Monetary Fund (IMF) has cut its economic growth forecast for the current year to 3.7 %. One of the main reasons for the downward adjustment is the current trade dispute between the world’s two largest economies, the USA and China. The situation is also exacerbated by a host of other uncertainties, including Brexit.

    The forecast for the eurozone has also been revised downwards compared to July. Gross domestic product (GDP) in the eurozone is currently expected to grow by 2.1 % over the year as a whole and therefore at a slower pace than in 2017. Although all economies within the EU are growing, there are significant differences in the pace of growth. In general, however, the economic environment is likely to remain conducive to further growth. Unemployment continues to fall; the weak euro is driving export growth and the ECB is only gradually running down its expansive monetary policy.

    The German economy continues to grow, underpinned by historically low levels of unemployment. Despite a slight dip in market sentiment in recent months, the German economy is still expected to grow by 2.0 %, similar to one year earlier.

    The French economy is only predicted to grow by 1.7 % this year, with both the lack of progress in reducing unemployment and the large trade deficit being cited as the main reasons for weaker economic growth.

    The forecast for Italy will also have to be reduced, and at a rate of 1.2 %, is likely to remain at the lower end of the scale for Europe. Despite gradually falling unemployment figures and recent growth in domestic demand creating positive impulses, the country’s debt policy and the rise in interest rates for Italian government bonds are a source of great concern for capital markets.

    In Spain, the consequences of the political uncertain- ty regarding Catalonia continue to have a negative impact on economic development for the country as a whole. Despite the prevailing political uncertainty, a growth rate of 2.7 % is nevertheless forecast for the current year, mainly driven by significantly lower levels of unemployment and robust domestic demand.

    While eurozone markets for the most part continue to grow, the UK economy is being negatively impacted by Brexit and the uncertainties surrounding it. Even though the unemployment rate has continuously declined since the referendum and the country is enjoying record employment levels, growth forecasts have been revised downwards with frequent regularity. GDP is only expected to grow by 1.3 % in 2018.

    Any continued intensification of the US trade dispute with key trading partners is highly likely to have a dampening effect on global economic growth for the remainder of 2018. The increase in customs duties for US imports from China and those from the USA to China, as well as other measures taken by the USA and countered by other countries, are having an effect on global economic growth. The tough nature of the negotiations between the USA, Canada and Mexico with the aim of replacing the existing NAFTA agreement were also a cause of apprehension on world markets. In the meantime, by agreeing to the “United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement” (USMCA), the countries concerned have decided on a new set of rules to replace the previous arrangements.

    In the USA, the economic situation remains very positive despite the distortions caused by trade policies. Moreover, the Federal Reserve continues to act very cautiously with its interest rate hikes. Strong US labor market figures and the short-term stimulus generated by the corporate tax reform are providing a powerful boost to growth, resulting in market forecasts for the current year being raised to 2.8 %.

    The Chinese economy remains on the course set by the country’s government, despite considerable risks and the escalation of the trade dispute. Economic growth in China is generally expected to run at 6.6 % in 2018, its greatest problem being the high level of debt, mostly of a corporate nature, even though the situation has not worsened. Moreover, a major drop in the continually rising property prices could trigger turbulence on financial markets as well as an eco- nomic downturn, not only in China, but worldwide.

    Japan has been unable to maintain the pace of growth seen in the previous year and its economy is expected to grow by only 1.0 % in 2018. Uncertainties over trade relations with the USA are having a particularly
    unfavorable impact on Japan, as an export-dependent economy. Any slow-down in international trade is therefore likely to curb the pace of growth.

    India is now back on a growth course, having over- come the partially chaotic conditions caused by a banknote changeover and in the wake of an extensive reform to its tax system. The country’s economy is expected to grow by 7.4 % in 2018.

    Despite the ongoing rise in oil prices, the Russian economy is forecast to grow by only 1.8 % this year. Recovery is also proving to be sluggish in Brazil (+1.6 %). Although some signs point to an upturn in domestic demand, uncertainty regarding future economic policies is unlikely to dissipate, even after the outcome of the presidential elections is known.

    International motorcycle markets

    The BMW Group’s forecasts are based on the assumption that worldwide motorcycle markets in the 250 cc plus class will continue to develop as well over the remainder of the year as in the first nine months. The positive trend in registrations in the major European markets of Germany, France, Italy and Spain is likely to continue, whereas market conditions in the UK should remain largely stable compared to the previous year. Continuing the trend seen in recent years, the US motorcycle market is likely to see a further decline in registration numbers in 2018.

    International interest rate environment and pre-owned vehicle prices

    Within the eurozone, the ECB has resolved to reduce the monthly volume of bond purchasing from €30 bil- lion to €15 billion with effect from October 2018. The ECB also announced its intention to discontinue bond purchases altogether as of January 2019.

    In the UK, it remains the stated intention of the BoE to raise the key interest rate further in a limited and gradual manner. The central bank’s monetary policy over the coming months is very much likely to be geared to managing the economic impact of the Brexit negotiations.

    In the USA, the Federal Reserve seems likely to raise the key interest rate further as long as the economy continues to perform well.

    In China, fiscal policies will continue to focus on safeguarding the country’s financial stability. A rise in inflation rates or a general deterioration in the eco- nomic situation, for instance as a result of a worsening trade war, is likely to persuade the Chinese central bank to change its previously cautious and neutral monetary policy. In this case, the Chinese government could well intervene with measures aimed at stimulating the economy.

    With the inflation rate remaining stubbornly low, Japan’s central bank is likely to maintain its expansive monetary policy.

    The BMW Group expects prices of pre-owned premium-segment vehicles to maintain their current trend through to the end of the year. Due to the ongoing debate on potential driving bans for diesel-powered vehicles in certain countries, pre-owned vehicle prices will probably continue to fall slightly in Europe. The situation in the UK is expected to remain stable, at a similarly low level to previous quarters. Pre-owned vehicle markets in North America and Asia are expect- ed to remain largely stable.

    Motorcycles segment

    Deliveries to customers: slight increase expected The BMW Group expects business in the Motorcycles segment to develop positively in the final quarter of 2018. The renewal of the product range in the previous year, together with a variety of new models such as the recently launched R 1250 GS and R 1250 RT with their comprehensively further advanced boxer engine, should all have a positive impact.

    Due to the ramp-up situation connected with various model changes in the Motorcycles segment, overall production was down for the nine-month period. With effect from the first quarter of 2018, deliveries in the Motorcycles segment have been forecast to increase slightly (2017: 164,153 units). In the Annual Report 2017, a solid increase was predicted.

    eBit margin in target range between 8 and 10 % expected
    The segment EBIT margin for 2018 is expected to lie within the target range of between 8 and 10 % (2017: 9.1 %).

    Return on capital employed1:
    in line with last year’s level expected

    The Motorcycles segment RoCE in 2018 is expected to come in at a similar level to the previous year (2017: %). In the Annual Report 2017, it had been predicted that RoCE would increase slightly. The outlook for segment RoCE was revised in the first quarter of 2018 due to the ramp-up situation described above. The long-term target RoCE of 26 % for the Motorcycles segment is still expected to be surpassed.

    As a globally operating company, the BMW Group is exposed to a wide range of risks and opportunities. Making full use of the opportunities that present themselves is the basis for the Group’s success. In order to achieve growth, profitability, efficiency and continued sustainable activity going forward, the BMW Group must consciously assume a certain amount of risk. During the period under report, risks increased slightly compared with the overall risk situation presented in the Group Management Report 2017. Current issues such as the progress of the Brexit negotiations, developments in trade policies as well as the impact of stricter legal regulations as well as goodwill and warranty measures will continue to be closely monitored and, where appropriate, factored into the Group’s forecasts. Further information on risks and opportunities, as well as on the methods employed to manage them can also be found in the “Report on Risks and Opportunities” section of the Annual Report 2017 (pp. 96).
