"Our sales in China outpaced the market, but sales in other key regions, including the U.S., Europe, and Japan underperformed", Stephen Ma, who will become chief financial officer next month, told reporters.

The automaker in the past few weeks has announced a revamp of its top ranks with younger executives, naming the head of its China business, 53-year-old Makoto Uchida, as its next chief executive, as it seeks to draw a line under Ghosn's legacy.
