求助:ahead of budget [Copy link] 中文

Rank: 4

Every business unit finished the year on or ahead of budget, except MMHC, which did have an 11th-hour surge at year-end.

Landing weights were 2% ahead of budget, although they were 5% below the same period in FY2002 and 15% below the first third of FY2001.

这两句里面,ahead of的意思似乎截然相反啊。ahead of budget到底是指低于还是超出预算呢?请指教。

还有这样的句子:'I am pleased to report,' says Rapra Managing  Director Andrew Ward, 'that in a number of important areas we  are now ahead of budget and expected performance. The  contribution of our large projects team, for example, in leading collaborative polymer research in Europe has been outstanding this year. We expect that activity and others -  in key areas such as medical, pharmaceutical, healthcare and to continue to grow and prosper.'
这里的意思倒是没有什么难理解的,但是ahead of budget中,ahead of表示低于,ahead of expected performance中,ahead of似乎应该是超过。同一个短语,两个截然不同的意思…………

i didn't have the context. it was an isolated sentence for me. anyway, now i've noticed the words "Wendesday's Budget", i think i know what they mean. thanx. but i don't think the word "worsened" has anything to do here.

超出预算。如果是销售预算那是好事,如果是开销预算那是坏事。
