    Press release Haldex Interim Report, January - June 2019: Stable quarter on a weak market

    The market conditions continued to weaken during Q2. Net sales increased slightly in the quarter, while the currency-adjusted net sales decreased. Sales in North America continue to be high, which did not have a full impact on profitability due to high raw material prices and tariffs. Demand in Europe has slowed, primarily in the Trailer customer category, which also affected the sales of disc brakes. The operating margin, excluding new technology, is in line with Q1. Operating income was primarily affected by lower sales volumes, but also by high costs for direct material and tariffs. Cash flow from operating activities improved compared to the previous year.

    Press release Haldex Interim Report, January - March 2019: Improved operating margin in weakened market

    Market conditions weakened slightly in the first quarter. Currency-adjusted net sales decreased marginally but increased in absolute terms. The positive performance of disc brake sales continued while brake adjuster sales decreased due to a slowdown in Chinese demand. Operating income improved due to increased Aftermarket sales, stabilized raw material prices and improved cost controls, and also because Haldex’s joint venture in China is now recognized as a part of operating activities. Cash flow from operating activities was down while earnings per share were up year-on-year.
