With imponderables remaining due to the current Coronavirus situation, it is still too early to give a detailed forecast of impacts on business development in 2020.
Stefano Domenicali, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Automobili Lamborghini, commented: “In Fiscal Year 2019 Lamborghini continued its sustained history of growth, setting new historic highs in all key business figures. While celebrating these figures we must underline the extraordinariness of the situation in which we find ourselves right now, from both a human and corporate perspective, due to the worldwide spread of Coronavirus.
“Our country is living through a situation that could never have been expected and on behalf of the company I would like to thank all the people - especially those in the services, medical and health sectors, institutions and the security forces - who are contributing to the management of this crisis in a remarkable way.
“In only a few days our habits and our interpersonal relationships have changed, with this scenario being reflected across the world. We need to be ready to react rapidly to these new circumstances, and in a rational and effective way. The excellent start of the year 2020, confirmed by sales figures in the first two months, gives us the right motivation to be ready and proactive in facing this entirely new and unimaginable challenge.
“Our 2019 results reflect the talent and dedication of all Lamborghini staff around the world and we thank them and our shareholders for their trust and continuing support. We are sure of the strength, the energy, the enthusiasm, the passion and the deliberateness that characterize the women and men in Lamborghini, also during these difficult times.
