Volkswagen Provides Strategy Update and Midterm Margin Guidance; Raising FVE to EUR 343

Richard Hilgert Senior Equity Analyst

Analyst Note

| Richard Hilgert |

No-moat-rated Volkswagen provided investors with a strategy update that, in our view, maintains the company’s position as one of the traditional automaker leaders in the transition to battery electric vehicles. Management plans global BEV sales reaching 50% of volume mix by 2030, which was unchanged, but added that by 2040, the company expects nearly 100% of its sales mix to be BEV. However, the company preannounced first half group operating profit of EUR 11 billion, more than it made in all of 2020 (EUR 10.6 billion), and updated its 2025 group operating margin objective to 8%-9% from 7%-8%.

Transparency is how we protect the integrity of our work and keep empowering investors to achieve their goals and dreams. And we have unwavering standards for how we keep that integrity intact, from our research and data to our policies on content and your personal data.

We’d like to share more about how we work and what drives our day-to-day business.

We sell different types of products and services to both investment professionals and individual investors. These products and services are usually sold through license agreements or subscriptions. Our investment management business generates asset-based fees, which are calculated as a percentage of assets under management. We also sell both admissions and sponsorship packages for our investment conferences and advertising on our websites and newsletters.

How we use your information depends on the product and service that you use and your relationship with us. We may use it to:

  • Verify your identity, personalize the content you receive, or create and administer your account.
  • Provide specific products and services to you, such as portfolio management or data aggregation.
  • Develop and improve features of our offerings.
  • Gear advertisements and other marketing efforts towards your interests.

Maintaining independence and editorial freedom is essential to our mission of empowering investor success. We provide a platform for our authors to report on investments fairly, accurately, and from the investor’s point of view. We also respect individual opinions––they represent the unvarnished thinking of our people and exacting analysis of our research processes. Our authors can publish views that we may or may not agree with, but they show their work, distinguish facts from opinions, and make sure their analysis is clear and in no way misleading or deceptive.

To further protect the integrity of our editorial content, we keep a strict separation between our sales teams and authors to remove any pressure or influence on our analyses and research.
