Siemens AG (SIE), Europe’s largest engineering company, will buy back as much as 4 billion euros ($5.4 billion) of shares as Chief Executive Officer Joe Kaeser bets that an efficiency push will boost profitability next year. 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.
