German term or phrase: 1999e
The "word" appears in a series of PPT slides about a PR firm that helps other companies go public. Right above it, sales figures for 1998 are given. I'm assuming that the "e" next to 1999 when discussing its sales figures means that the number shown is an estimate. Any confirmation on that or other explanations?

English translation:1999E
Explanation:
A 1998 Daimler-Benz financial Web page (below) lists the years identically in both its German and English versions, as follows:
>>EPS Estimates --- 1997: 4.0 1998e: 10.3 1999e: 12.8 <<
using a Lower CASE >>e<< in both languages.

However, several US and Canadian Web pages affix a CAPITAL >>E<< after recent years pertaining to presumably estimated (recent/future) statistics -- not necessarily financial -- and a CAPITAL >>A<< after the year pertaining to actual (earlier) statistics:

Absent hard information to confirm otherwise I’d be inclined to capitalize the letter suffix in English. You might check additional Web pages to confirm (or otherwise).

the figures for 1999


Explanation:
Unable to look at the full context, I can only assume that, after the figures for 1998, now the figures for 1999 are quoted.
