Siemens Plans $5.4 Billion Buyback as Chief Sees Recovery
Published: Nov 07, 2013

Siemens, which today reported fourth-quarter earnings that beat analyst estimates, intends to raise its profit margin to about 10 percent of sales next year from 7.6 percent in 2013, Kaeser said at a press conference. The Munich-based company had earlier this year abandoned a target for 12 percent profitability.
