Maggy,
Thank you!

And here's some more from the estimable Mr.Simpson. After reading the responses to my notes on the Shareholders Meeting, I emailed him to ask about European sales amounts. Here's his response:

Hello Scott:

Thanks for your kind words on my presentation, but one number obviously did not come across clearly. European
sales, as a percentage of SSD total sales in the first quarter, jumped from 9% to 12%. They continue to be strong, but nothing like the numbers in your message.

Best,
Barc


Talk about top notch Investor Relations! Based on his response, I think the 33% number I heard was the rate of increase in the first quarter.


Cheers,

Scott
(copy of my post on the BMW Board, where my report of European sales amounting to 33% of the total figure was questioned.)
