FRANKFURT (Reuters) - German automotive supplier Continental AG (CONG.DE) aims to decide on measures to improve productivity by the end of the year, CEO Elmar Degenhart said on Tuesday.

There are no targets to close a specific number of sites or cut a specific number of jobs, Degenhart said ahead of the IAA auto show in Frankfurt.

He added that he did not expect a partial initial public offering of Continental’s Vitesco division next year, pointing to the wider economic situation.
