Just before the end of 2018 the all companies we promised are visible in the 3D-graph for automotive! I will try and be concise about the proces.

Nissan has very neat annual reports, but the book-year is broken (April 1 to March 31), so again values for a year were taken for the bookyear covering the largest part. The annual report 2013 covers three quarters of 2012 and therefore provided the 2012 numbers. Then all values were in JPY. Converting to USD was done as before, using a site with exchange rates and picking the mid of the book-year (October 1 or closest available) for the P&L and the end of the book-year (March 31 or closest) for the balance. See previous post about PSA for more details.

Nissan is not a small company, so I put it in between PSA and Ford. Then I decided to adjust the parameters and to reverse the years, by switching the order of the lines within each block. After all we’ve seen enough of the crisis and now it’s time to look forward, starting with the most recent years at the front of the graph. Below two screenshots of the 3D-graph are shown. Both are clickable – double clicking will bring up the real 3D-graph in your web-browser.
On double-clicking, the 3D-graph will appear in your web-browser. There are several options to move graph: clicking the right mouse-button, moving the mouse up and down will zoom the graph in and out. Clicking left and moving the mouse at the same time will tilt the graph in different directions (or move the observer’s viewpoint around a fixed graph – it’s relative of course). Double clicking in the graph translates it and moves the centre at the same time. As a result the way the graph tilts will change. Just try it. If you don’t know how to get the normal position back, just refresh the graph.
For more information, please have a look at our other posts, our website or our youtube-channel. Download the free 3D-graph generator package (zip) can be downloaded, unpack it in a folder and the .jar file can be started immediately. Our email-address is firstname.lastname@example.org
For now, I wish you a happy new year!
