SAP goal remains to triple market cap, but gives no timeframe

Reuters  |  MANNHEIM 

(Reuters) - SAP, Germany's most valuable public company, remains committed to tripling its market capitalisation, but declined to specify a timeframe on Thursday.

"There is clearly the potential to triple the value of this company. We believe that is only a matter of time," McDermott said at its annual general meeting in response to a shareholder question, reiterating previous comments on the target.

"While we are not giving a specific timeframe, we are certainly charging ahead with this in mind," he said.

The company's market capitalisation stood at just above 118 billion euros ($139 billion) on Wednesday. Rival U.S. is valued at around $190 billion.

SAP's share price trebled between 2010 and 2017.
