BMW says Q1 EBIT falls 4.5 pct to 2 bln euros
BERLIN May 2 (Reuters) - Germany's BMW said first-quarter underlying group profit fell less than expected to 2 billion euros ($2.64 billion), as costly discounts in core European markets and weakening Chinese deliveries weighed on results.
Munich-based BMW reaffirmed its targets for 2013 to push vehicle sales to a new record, match last year's record group pre-tax profit and achieve an operating margin of between 8 and 10 percent in its key automotive division.
