The purchase price amounted to SEK 827 million, which reduced the net debt with the corresponding amount. The transaction resulted in a capital gain of SEK 411 million. • Haldex received its largest single order ever amounting to SEK 4.5 billion from VW to All-Wheel-Drive systems for VW’s new modular platform (announced in April). • The cost reduction program has been successful. Annual saving is approximately SEK 650 m for the continued operations after the divestment of Garphyttan Wire. The reduction in the number of jobs corresponds to 2,300 employees, which is 38% of the workforce. • Haldex’s strategic focus on meeting and exceeding society’s increasingly strict environmental demands has been successful. Several major contracts have been secured for Haldex products and technologies for next- generation diesel engines that meet stricter environmental requirements. * Excluding restructuring costs, one-off items and amortization of acquisition-related surplus values
