Hanover (dpa) - The automotive supplier and tire manufacturer Continental is slated this year due to a billion-dollar special burden probably in the loss. In the third quarter, Conti posted impairments of around € 2.5 billion, as the Dax Group announced.

These are based on the assumption that the current global production of passenger cars and light commercial vehicles will not improve significantly in the next five years. In addition, provisions were incurred for the recently announced Group restructuring of 97 million euros.

The charges would result in a loss for the third quarter and full year attributable to shareholders. However, no material effects on the dividend proposal for the current year are to be expected.

Continental also wants to split off its drive business as a whole and make a note of the stock market. A possible partial listing is now no longer an option, as the Dax Group announced, following a resolution by the Executive Board. The plan for a so-called spin-off with stock exchange listing will be presented to the Annual General Meeting on April 30, 2020. The Supervisory Board also has to agree. For a long time, the company has been examining how it intends to deal with the division mentioned in Vitesco. Last September, Conti had referred to the barely predictable conditions for a partial listing in the coming year.
