BERLIN, April 26 Germany's MAN SE on
Friday reported a first-quarter operating loss of 82 million
euros ($107 million), more than analysts expected, due to the
ongoing slump in European truck markets.
The loss exceeded a consensus forecast in a Reuters analyst
survey of a 22.1 million-euro loss in the period.
MAN SE said it now expected group sales to be flat. In its
previous outlook published on Feb. 8, it predicted a "slight"
decline in overall revenue.
Operating profit in 2013 will be "significantly lower" than
in 2012, MAN reiterated on Friday.
