  • Nissan Set For Weakest Profit In 11 Years As Ghosn Woes, Bleak Sales Weigh

    Nissan forecast a 28% plunge in its annual operating profit, putting it on course for the weakest earnings in 11 years. The lackluster outlook from Japan’s No.2 automaker is likely to add to the pressure on CEO Hiroto Saikawa. Nissan’s weakening profit and a growing number of departing executives and managers have raised concerns at Renault, which holds a 43% stake. These issues could strengthen the argument for closer links between the two automakers. Although some Nissan executives have opposed a full merger and what they see as an unequal partnership that gives smaller Renault more sway over Nissan. Nissan expects operating profit of $2 billion for the year to March 2020, missing the 457.7 billion yen average analysts estimated.
