Retail sales in the quarter increased 21% year on year to 102,644 vehicles.

Profit before tax increased to £668m for the quarter supported by strong sales.
For the first half of the 2013/2014 fiscal year the company reported retail sales of 197,363, up 16% year on year. Revenues were £8,709m, up 26% year on year and profit before tax was £1,083m, up 42% year on year.
