Key business developments in the third quarter of 2019

Organic growth outperformed global light vehicle production by 4.6pp mainly due to China and Americas.

Profitability still impacted by global LVP decline and high raw material costs, although less than previous quarter, partly offset by total workforce decline of 800 vs. a quarter ago, or of 1,600 vs. a year ago.

Established new customer collaborations; a North American road safety center with Great Wall Motor and presented next generation passenger airbag in cooperation with Honda.

Comments from Mikael Bratt,

President & CEO

We experienced continued challenging market conditions in the quarter. Although the rate of decline in light vehicle production slowed down slightly, uncertainty remains high, market outlook by IHS continues to be

 

The cost improvement actions which enabled this performance will continue relentlessly.

We reduced our workforce by an additional 800 in the quarter, or by 1,600 compared to a year ago, despite growing our sales organically* by 1.2%. Our program to reduce indirect labor costs by 5% is developing as planned and we expect it to impact our costs meaningfully as of the fourth quarter 2019.

In addition to LVP and raw material headwinds, the strike at General Motors in North America is also affecting our sales.

Being close to our customers supports our short- and long-term business opportunities and this quarter we announced two new customer collaborations - the North American road safety research lab together with Great Wall Motor and the next generation passenger airbag in cooperation with Honda. Our order intake share remained on a good level in the quarter, supporting a prolonged sales growth outperformance.

As always, it is of utmost importance to focus on quality and execution to secure a strong long-term performance for our company.

revised down and we do not see a turnaround in LVP in the near term.

We continued to outperform light vehicle production, growing organically* about 4.6pp more than LVP in the third quarter, driven mainly by strong development in China and Americas.

Our business cycle management actions are taking effect and the adjusted operating margin* decline year over year was substantially less than in recent quarters, and it improved sequentially. LVP has continued to slide however, and we now assume 6-7% global LVP decline for 2019, which moderates our outlook to around 1% for organic sales growth and to around 9% for adjusted operating margin.

Although I am not pleased with this profit level, we achieved it in the context of LVP expectations declining by 7-8pp in just 9 months.

Outlook 2019

Our organic sales growth and adjusted operating margin outlook indications for 2019 reflect the continuing high level of uncertainty in the automotive markets and are based on the assumption that global light vehicle production declines by 6-7% in full year 2019 compared to full year 2018.

Third quarter 2019 development

Sales by product- Airbags

Airbag sales organic growth* was mainly driven by strong performance for driver and knee airbags in North America, steering wheels in Americas and passenger airbags in China. Offsetting declines came mainly from most types of airbags in Europe and from inflators in North America and Japan.

Sales by product - Seatbelts

Seatbelt sales organic growth* was mainly driven by strong performance in China and to a lesser degree in Americas, partly offset by declines in Europe and India. The trend of higher sales of more advanced and higher value-added seatbelt systems continued, especially in China and Rest of Asia.

 

 

 

Sales by region

 

 

 

We grew globally by 1.2% organically*, which is 4.6pp more than light vehicle production (according to IHS). The largest contributor to overall growth was China, followed by North America and South America. The largest organic sales decline was in Europe, followed by India, South Korea and Japan. Our organic sales growth

outperformed LVP by around 17pp in China and by 4.5pp in North America while we underperformed LVP by 7.5pp in Europe and by around 8pp in Japan. In South America we grew organically around 35pp more than LVP, while we outgrew LVP by around 8pp in Rest of Asia.

Third quarter 2019 development

Gross profit declined by $7 million and the gross margin declined by 0.3pp compared to the same quarter 2018. The gross margin was adversely impacted by the decline in global light vehicle production, resulting in a lower utilization of our production assets, and raw material headwinds. This was offset to some degree by organic growth* from launches of new products, which have a lower margin contribution in the early phase of the ramp-up.

S,G&A increased by $8 million, mainly driven by bonus accrual reversals prior year and a mix of minor expense items incurred in the current quarter.

R,D&E, net was close to unchanged in USD terms as well as in percent of sales.

Other (expense) income, net of negative $26 million was $27 million lower than in the prior year, mainly due to accruals relating to future reductions of our indirect workforce.

Operating income decreased by $39 million, as a consequence of the declines in other (expense) income, net and gross profit.

Adjusted operating income* decreased by $11 million, mainly due to the lower gross profit.

Financial and non-operating items, net was close to unchanged at $19 million compared to the prior year.

Income before taxes decreased by $37 million, mainly as a consequence of the lower operating income.

Effective tax rate of 36.0% was 4.9 pp higher than last year primarily due to costs accrued in the quarter related to the indirect workforce reduction program that are not fully tax deductible.

Earnings per share, diluted decreased by 36 cents where the main drivers were 31 cents from higher costs for capacity alignment and 8 cents from lower adjusted operating income.

Third quarter 2019 development

Operating working capital* was 7.2% of sales compared to 8.8% of sales a year earlier, where the change mainly was a consequence of a new accounting standard for operating leases and accruals related to future reductions of our indirect workforce. The Company targets that operating working capital in relation to the last 12-month sales should not exceed 10%.

Operating cash flow was $195 million compared to $238 million a year earlier, where the difference of $43 million primarily was due to the $32 million lower net income.

Capital expenditure, net of $122 million was relatively unchanged, reflecting continued high investment requirements in support of the high level of new product launches.

Free cash flow, net* amounted to $73 million compared to $121 million a year earlier, where the decrease of $48 million was mainly due to the lower operating cash flow.

Cash conversion* defined as free cash flow in relation to net income, amounted to 85% compared to 102% in the previous year, as free cash flow declined more than net income.

Net debt* amounted to $1,781 million as of September 30, 2019, which was close to unchanged compared to a year earlier.

Leverage ratio*. Autoliv’s policy is to maintain a leverage ratio commensurate with a strong investment grade credit rating. The Company measures its leverage ratio as net debt* adjusted for pension liabilities in relation to EBITDA. The long-term target is to maintain a leverage ratio of around 1x within a range of 0.5x to 1.5x. As of September 30, 2019, the Company had a leverage ratio of 1.8x, compared to 1.8x at June 30, 2019 and 1.5x at September 30, 2018.

Total equity decreased in the quarter by $38 million compared to June 30, 2019 mainly due to $54 million from dividends and $71 million in currency translation effects partly offset by $86 million in net income.

Compared to June 30, 2019, total headcount (permanent employees and temporary personnel) decreased by 802. The decrease in the quarter was driven by a reduction of both direct and indirect workforce. Compared to a year ago, headcount decreased by 1,611, with close to 80%

of the reduction being in the direct workforce. The headcount reductions reflect the balancing of cost reduction efforts to offset the decline in light vehicle markets and the support of the growth in organic sales* driven by new vehicle program launches.

Q3 Report—2019

 

“Safe Harbor Statement”

 

 

This report contains statements that are not historical facts but rather forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Such forward-looking statements include those that address activities, events or developments that Autoliv, Inc. or its management believes or anticipates may occur in the future. All forward-looking statements are based upon our current expectations, various assumptions and/or data available from third parties. Our expectations and assumptions are expressed in good faith and we believe there is a reasonable basis for them. However, there can be no assurance that such forward-looking statements will materialize or prove to be correct as forward-looking statements are inherently subject to known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors which may cause actual future results, performance or achievements to differ materially from the future results, performance or achievements expressed in or implied by such forward-looking statements. In some cases, you can identify these statements by forward-looking words such as “estimates”, “expects”, “anticipates”, “projects”, “plans”, “intends”, “believes”, “may”, “likely”, “might”, “would”, “should”, “could”, or the negative of these terms and other comparable terminology, although not all forward-looking statements contain such words. Because these forward-looking statements involve risks and uncertainties, the outcome could differ materially from those set out in the forward-looking statements for a variety of reasons, including without limitation, changes in light vehicle production; fluctuation in vehicle production schedules for which the Company is a supplier, changes in general industry and market conditions or regional growth or decline; changes in and the successful execution of our capacity alignment, restructuring and cost reduction initiatives and the market reaction thereto; loss of business from increased competition; higher raw material, fuel and energy costs; changes in consumer and customer preferences for end products; customer losses; changes in regulatory conditions; customer bankruptcies, consolidations,

or restructuring; divestiture of customer brands; unfavorable fluctuations in currencies or interest rates among the various jurisdictions in which we operate; component shortages; market acceptance of our new products; costs or difficulties related to the integration of any new or acquired businesses and technologies; continued uncertainty in pricing negotiations with customers; successful integration of acquisitions and operations of joint ventures; successful implementation of strategic partnerships and collaborations; our ability to be awarded new business; product liability, warranty and recall claims and investigations and other litigation and customer reactions thereto; (including the resolution of the Toyota recall); higher expenses for our pension and other postretirement benefits, including higher funding needs for our pension plans; work stoppages or other labor issues; possible adverse results of pending or future litigation or infringement claims; our ability to protect our intellectual property rights; negative impacts of antitrust investigations or other governmental investigations and associated litigation relating to the conduct of our business; tax assessments by governmental authorities and changes in our effective tax rate; dependence on key personnel; legislative or regulatory changes impacting or limiting our business; political conditions; dependence on and relationships with customers and suppliers; and other risks and uncertainties identified under the headings “Risk Factors” and “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” in our Annual Reports and Quarterly Reports on Forms 10-K and 10-Q and any amendments thereto. For any forward-looking statements contained in this or any other document, we claim the protection of the safe harbor for forward-looking statements contained in the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, and we assume no obligation to update publicly or revise any forward-looking statements in light of new information or future events, except as required by law.

Q3 Report—2019

 

RECONCILIATION OF U.S. GAAP TO NON-U.S. GAAP MEASURES

In this report we sometimes refer to non-U.S. GAAP measures that we and securities analysts use in measuring Autoliv's performance. We believe that these measures assist investors and management in analyzing trends in the Company's business for the reasons given below. Investors should not consider these non-U.S. GAAP measures as substitutes, but rather as additions, to financial reporting measures prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. It should be noted that these measures, as defined, may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies.

Components in Sales Increase/Decrease

Since the Company generates approximately 75% of sales in currencies other than in the reporting currency (i.e. U.S. dollars) and currency rates have been rather volatile, we analyze the Company's sales trends and performance as changes in organic sales growth. This presents the increase or decrease in the overall U.S. dollar net sales on a comparable basis, allowing separate discussions of the impact of acquisitions/divestitures and exchange rates. The tables on page 5 present changes in organic sales growth as reconciled to the change in the total U.S. GAAP net sales.

Operating Working Capital

Due to the need to optimize cash generation to create value for shareholders, management focuses on operationally derived working capital as defined in the table below. The reconciling items used to derive this measure are, by contrast, managed as part of our overall management of cash and debt, but they are not part of the responsibilities of day-to-day operations' management.

Q3 Report—2019

 

Net Debt

As part of efficiently managing the Company’s overall cost of funds, Autoliv from time to time enter into “debt-related derivatives” (DRD) as a part of our debt management. Creditors and credit rating agencies use net debt adjusted for DRD in their analyses of the Company’s debt and therefore we provide this non-U.S. GAAP measure. DRD are fair value adjustments to the carrying value of the underlying debt. Also included in the DRD is the unamortized fair value adjustment related to a discontinued fair value hedge which will be amortized over the remaining life of the debt. By adjusting for DRD, the total financial liability of net debt is disclosed without grossing debt up with currency or interest fair values.

Leverage ratio

The non-U.S. GAAP measure net debt is also used in the non-U.S. GAAP measure “Leverage ratio”. Management uses this measure to analyze the amount of debt the Company can incur under its debt policy. Management believes that this policy also provides guidance to credit and equity investors regarding the extent to which the Company would be prepared to leverage its operations. For details on leverage ratio refer to the table.

Free Cash Flow, Net Cash Before Financing and Cash Conversion

Management uses the non-U.S. GAAP measure free cash flow to analyze the amount of cash flow being generated by the Company’s operations after capital expenditure, net. This measure indicates the Company’s cash flow generation level that enables strategic value creation options such as dividends or acquisitions. For details on free cash flow see the reconciliation table below. Management uses the non-U.S. GAAP measure net cash before financing to analyze and disclose the cash flow generation available for servicing external stakeholders such as shareholders and debt stakeholders. For details on net cash before financing, see the reconciliation table below. Management uses the non-U.S. GAAP measure cash conversion to analyze the proportion of net income that is converted into free cash flow. The measure is a tool to evaluate how efficient the Company utilizes its resources. For details on cash conversion, see the reconciliation table below.

Items Affecting Comparability

We believe that comparability between periods is improved through the exclusion of certain items. To assist investors in understanding the operating performance of Autoliv's business, it is useful to consider certain U.S. GAAP measures exclusive of these items. Accordingly, the tables below reconcile from U.S. GAAP to the equivalent non-U.S. GAAP measure.
