Which of the following most accurately describes the problem?

• The Dennis Duple Dart 39seat bus, unveiled at last year's NEC Show in rolling frame/ prototype chassis form, is due to go into production by June.

The show vehicle was developed by Duple International and Dennis Specialist Vehicles. It is now at the pre-production stage and several demonstrators will soon be on trial with prospective customers, of which there is no shortage, says DSV's Roger Heard: "We are actively talking to a number of people and should be in full production by October," he reports.

Trinity Holdings, parent company of DI and DSV, was

formed this January following a successful management buyout of the vehicles division of Hestair. Chairman Geoff Hollyhead is optimistic about the Dart's prospects: "There has been an amazing response to the Dart,' he says. "Our products are regarded as the brand-leaders and we are confident that the new Dart will become a marke. leader too."

Trinity Holdings is likely to achieve its target of a 50% increase in profit within the next four years, after which it will seek a Stock market flotation. Trinity companies made profits of nearly PM million in 1988 under the Hestair banner.
