Volkswagen Group reports solid H1 2014 business growth despite

31.07.2014

Wolfsburg, July 31, 2014 – The Volkswagen Group reported solid business growth in
the first six months of 2014 despite the ongoing difficult market environment. At
EUR 98.8 billion (EUR 98.7 billion), sales revenue in the first six months was only
slightly up on the prior-year period due to significant negative exchange rate effects.
Operating profit grew by 7.0 percent to EUR 6.2 billion (EUR 5.8 billion) and the
operating return on sales rose to 6.3 percent (5.9 percent). The Group’s operating
profit and sales revenue exclude the activities of the Chinese joint ventures, which are
accounted for in the financial result using the equity method and are therefore not
included in consolidated operating profit. The share of operating profit attributable to
the Chinese joint ventures in the first half of 2014 was EUR 2.6 billion (EUR 2.4 billion).
