Daimler's Mercedes to boost 2013 car sales more than 4 pct -CFO

BERLIN, April 24 (Reuters) - Germany’s Daimler said it aims to increase deliveries of its Mercedes-Benz luxury vehicles by more than 4 percent this year, beating global passenger car growth which the automaker sees at 2-4 percent.

Second-quarter results at Daimler should be better than numbers achieved during the first three months, finance chief Bodo Uebber said on Wednesday during a conference call.

First-quarter earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) from ongoing businesses more than halved to 917 million euros ($1.2 billion).

Cost-cutting programmes had “relatively little” effect on first-quarter results, the CFO added.
