SALES REVENUE AND EARNINGS

The Scania brand recorded a positive performance in fiscal year 2008 despite the tight market situation. This was also due to the positive market reception for Scania’s latest generation of engines.

Sales revenue amounted to €3.9 billion in the consolidation period. Operating profit was €417 million, €12 million of which was attributable to the financial services business. At 10.8%, the operating return on sales was encouragingly high. Scania will continue its success story in the future, too, with an even greater focus on customers and high quality awareness.
