You don’t need me to remind you that the Japanese tsunami and earthquake combined with continued economic uncertainty made trading conditions difficult at times.
Despite these factors, however, we ought to congratulate ourselves – because the company managed to achieve the major objectives set out in its 2011 Business Plan.
This really is a fantastic achievement of which you can be proud as you played your part. We will review the numbers in detail in the next briefing but in short:
- Financial year profit commitment achieved
- Volume 5k above plan at 111k
- Market Share at commitment level of 5.1 per cent
- Retail MS at 5.6 per cent
- Fleet MS at 4.9 per cent
And finishing on an incredible March close of just under 23k units and a retail share of over six per cent.
I want to thank everyone for their efforts. Relax over the Easter weekend, take time to consider what a fantastic performance this is and come back refreshed and ready to beat this in 2012!
