Revenues improved year over year but earnings declined year over year. In September, Autoliv inked a deal to acquire certain assets of a Swedish based LiDAR specialist company. Also, innovative product launches, acquisitions and JVs are likely to boost its sales. Moreover, Autoliv has been witnessing a strong order intake.
