Sales of BMW Group have increased by 81% over the last decade (ending in 2012), or 6.1% on average per year. Most of the growth came from the increased production (from 0.9 mil to more than 1.5 mil cars in 2012) as average price per car remained roughly the same (at around EUR 40-42,000). Company's profits have increased faster than that, however, at nearly 10% a year.
The Company has been relatively highly indebted with net debt accounting for around 200% of the Company's equity. Thanks to high margins, solid growth and low interest rates, this has not been a problem yet
