AUDI AG: Adjustment to the balance sheet risk provisions as of the third quarter 2016

Due to special items posted in the first three quarters for the V6 3.0 TDI engine issues and Takata airbags, we are now assuming that the operating return on sales after special items in the financial year 2016 should be considerably below the target corridor of 8 to 10 percent. For the 2016 interim financial report, the Audi Group was still assuming a figure slightly below the abovementioned target corridor.

Before special items, the Audi Group is still expecting an operating return on sales within the corridor of 8 to 10 percent.
