Consolidated sales for 1999 rose 12% on particularly strong demand to 37,807 euros million (FRF 247,999 million). At comparable scope of consolidation, the increase amounted to 10.6%. Sales rose 16.3% in the fourth quarter, following gains of 3.9% in the first quarter, 11.1% in the second quarter and 17.7% in the third quarter.

Worldwide sales of Peugeot and CitroŽn passenger cars and CKD units increased 10.4% to 2,519,600 units. This performance reflects the continued success of the Peugeot 206 (550,900 units sold), the CitroŽn Berlingo (up 24%) and Peugeot Partner (up 27.5%) and the HDI diesel engine, which is now available on almost all Peugeot and CitroŽn vehicles. In a western European market that grew by 5.2%, sales of Group cars and light commercial vehicles rose by 12.2% to 2,157,600 units. Outside western Europe, sales volumes showed a slight 1% gain thanks to an upturn at the end of the year, notably in central Europe and the Mercosur countries.

The Automotive Equipment business increased its sales to outside companies by 6% during the period, to euros 2,983 million (FRF 19,562 million). The contribution of the Transportation business rose by 19.7% to ? 656 million (FRF 4,302 million), taking into account the acquisition of a controlling interest in KN Elan, the German transportation and logistics subsidiary of KŁhne & Nagel, as of October 1, 1999. At comparable scope of consolidation, Transportation sales rose by 8.4%.

Revenues from the finance companies, which mainly consist of interest on the financing of sales, amounted to euros 1,066 million (FRF 6,999 million). This represents an increase of 56.3% from 1998, taking into account the full consolidation of Crťdipar (the Group gained control of Crťdipar in December 1998). At comparable scope of consolidation, revenues rose 2.3%. A total of 666,600 new and used vehicle sales were financed in 1999, up 13.7% from 1998. Banque PSA Finance had total outstandings of ? 12.7 billion (FRF 83.1 billion) at December 31, up 18.2% from the year before.
