British automaker Aston Martin reported a post-tax loss of $39.6 million USD (£24.9 Million) last year, blaming Europe’s economic straits for much of the loss.
Aston also cites “vehicle launches in the fourth quarter,” as one of the contributing factors. The brand’s earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization in 2012 totaled about $110 Million (£69.3 million).
A large shake up is currently underway at Aston Martin, with the brand committing to double its sales by 2016. Talk of an Aston Martin SUV is in the air, while Aston recently cut production of its Cygnet city car after poor sales.
