PARIS, April 20 Michelin revenue rose 9.9
percent in the first quarter, buoyed by European auto-market
growth and a rebound in demand for outsize mining tyres, the
company said on Thursday.
Revenue rose to 5.57 billion euros ($5.99 billion) from 5.07
billion euros a year earlier, Michelin said in a statement.
Sales by volume rose 7.3 percent.
The company reiterated its 2017 goals, which include volume
growth in line with global markets, an increase in full-year
operating income at constant exchange rates and structural free
cash flow in excess of 900 million euros.
