    Press release Haldex interim report, January - March 2017: Increased net sales and operating income excluding one-off items

    The year began with net sales levels exceeding general market conditions. Europe in particular has developed strongly, and even though market conditions remain weak in North America, Haldex North American sales have declined to a lesser extent than the market, resulting in overall sales growth for the Group. A number of product areas have undergone strong development, with disc brakes continuing to be the fastest growing product for Haldex. Sales of actuators have not begun to increase as yet, mainly due to the strong position of the product on the weak North American market. Operating income has increased on a par with the sales growth and is higher than in the same period last year.

    Press release Haldex annual statement, January - December 2016: A year with a weak market and a drawn-out bidding process

    Haldex’ net sales followed the general market trend in 2016. In North America, which represents more than half of Haldex’ net sales, the conditions on the market were weak during the year and demand fell even more during the fourth quarter. However, Haldex’ sales in North America during the fourth quarter did not decline at the same rate as the market. Net sales in Europe and Asia increased during the fourth quarter, but could not compensate for the decrease in North America.  Disc brake sales increased significantly during both the fourth quarter and the year as a whole, but sales of actuators and brake adjusters declined. The operating margin has followed net volumes each quarter, but weakened at the end of the year.

    Press release Haldex interim report, January - September 2016: Solid operating margin in spite of continuing weak market conditions

    Market conditions continued to be weak in North America in Q3, which was the main factor contributing to lower sales. Disc brake sales increased significantly, but did not compensate for lower actuator and brake adjuster sales. The company’s operating margin is in line with previous quarters of this year in spite of lower net sales. Earnings per share for the first nine months of the year were also up compared with the same period of the previous year.
