Rolls-Royce Motor Cars issues a statement following announcements by Rolls-Royce PLC


These days Rolls Royce Motor Cars is not part of Rolls Royce PLC. The car company is now owned by BMW Group. So recently when some stuff hit the fan regarding Rolls Royce PLC, the company that makes aeroplane jet engines, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars have decided to issue the statement below so that there is no confusion between the two very separate business entities:


PRESS RELEASE
ROLLS-ROYCE MOTOR CARS ISSUES CLARIFICATION
FOLLOWING ANNOUNCEMENTS BY ROLLS-ROYCE PLC


20 January 2017, Goodwood

 Rolls-Royce Motor Cars is a completely separate company from Rolls-Royce plc

 Rolls-Royce Motor Cars is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the BMW Group

 Rolls-Royce Motor Cars has no involvement whatsoever in issues relating to alleged bribery

and subsequent legal settlements reached by Rolls-Royce plc

 Rolls-Royce Motor Cars just announced second highest sales in the marque’s 113-year history

Rolls-Royce Motor Cars is issuing this statement in order to clarify confusion and misreporting

that has arisen in certain media around the world, following recent statements issued by

Rolls-Royce plc.

Rolls-Royce Motor Cars is a completely separate company from Rolls-Royce plc which

manufactures power systems for aircraft, ships and land applications. Rolls-Royce Motor Cars is a

wholly-owned subsidiary of the BMW Group (Munich), based at Goodwood near Chichester in

West Sussex, United Kingdom. It commenced business on 1 January 2003 at its new global

production facility.


Rolls-Royce Motor Cars manufactures and sells the world’s pinnacle super-luxury automobiles,

including the Phantom, Ghost, Wraith and Dawn range of models.

As an entirely separate company, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars has no involvement whatsoever in

issues relating to alleged bribery and subsequent legal settlements reached by Rolls-Royce plc

with authorities in various jurisdictions, including the United Kingdom, the United States and

Brazil.

Rolls-Royce Motor Cars has recently announced its second highest ever annual sales result in the

marque’s 113-year history, up 6% on its 2015 results. A total of 4,011 cars were delivered to

customers in more than 50 countries, affirming the Brand’s strength and resilience in a year of

challenging market conditions for luxury goods worldwide.
