I found it here:

Nissan generated an operating profit of 153.3 billion yen on net revenues of 2.76 trillion yen. Overall, results were in line with the company's expectations for the first quarter and the company expects improved profitability for the remainder of the year driven by its product cadence.

Hello Aventador!

Well, I looked in the dictionaries . . .

We have two choices:

1. The companies profits are expected to increase due to the poetic rhythm and musical progression of the products . . . Nissan?

2. It really means nothing and the writer has no idea whether the profits will increase or not, but wants to sound 'wise' and 'knowing'.

***********
Digging around on the internet, it seems that it is actually an 'extended meaning' of the first one.

So, Nissan release a new product regularly.
There is a rhythm.
They have chosen the times of their releases well, so it increases profits.

Thanks for your explanation.

So product cadence means well-planned release of products in particular times.

Yes - that's what I understood from the articles I read.
