Which of the following most accurately describes the problem?

• Leyland Bus achieved its best monthly sales figures for three years in February, with 111 buses and coaches registered in the UK. This gave it a market share of nearly 50% and the market leader in vehicles over 7.5 tonnes.

Leyland says its sales so far this year are running 95% ahead of the same period last year. The Tiger coach has made a big contribution to this success: 64 Tigers were registered in February, making it the best seller in its class.

Managing director John Arkell believes Volvo's takeover of Leyland Bus last year has been a key factor: "Since our acquisition by Volvo our sales have gone from strength to strength. We have now established a UK sales and marketing company, VL Bus & Coach (UK), which is actively selling Leyland Bus products alongside the Volvo range," he says.
