Comments from Jan Carlson, Chairman, President and CEO
Veoneer executed well in the quarter. Disruptions from semiconductor shortages, and our continued build up for growth, added extra costs which we were able to offset by efficiencies gained through our on-going market adjustment initiatives (MAIs). This outcome puts us well on track to achieve our full year outlook first presented in early February. We are also on track to increase our order intake compared to 2020, with our main expected order awards scheduled for the second half of the year.
We took a cautious view to the LVP in the beginning of the quarter which proved to be basically correct. While global LVP growth was only slightly lower than IHS January forecast, the regional mix shifted significantly. LVP in North America and Europe which make up more than 75% of Veoneer's sales were down close to 14% and 3% respectively. China, which made up 28% of the LVP in the quarter, but only 13% of Veoneer sales, was up by 11%, all compared to IHS's expectation from the beginning of the quarter. Our content per vehicle as compared to the LVP is currently more than four times higher in Europe and North America than in China, therefore this geographic mix shift had a temporary adverse effect on our sales growth and gross margin.
The automotive industry is going through a turbulent period. The COVID-19 pandemic is on-going in most regions, and we continue to put health and safety first. At the same time continued semiconductor supply constraints disrupted deliveries and the global supply chain. In conjunction with these developments the underlying demand for cars continues to be strong. To date we have managed this multifaceted development well, and I am pleased that we, despite the on-going delivery disruptions, are able to reiterate our full year outlook and that the MAI's continue to have positive effects on our cost base. We anticipate that disruptions will continue during the second quarter and then gradually decrease, and as first mentioned in our fourth quarter earnings announcement, we therefore foresee the positive effects on our operating leverage from our sales growth mainly taking effect in the second half of the year.
Our collaboration with Qualcomm is progressing very well and Arriver, our new software business, has now started its operations. The technology development is according to our joint plans and the first Arriver perception and drive policy software is now running on the Qualcomm Snapdragon Ride platform, a true milestone. During the quarter the Polestar 2, which runs the current generation of Arriver software, became the number one car in Euro NCAP's safety test - another proof point that we are on track to create a leading global challenger for Active Safety systems and software.
These developments are the result of the strong execution of the entire Veoneer team and I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of Veoneer's associates for their focus and persistence in these volatile times.

1 Non-U.S. GAAP measure reconciliation for Organic Sales
Net Sales - Veoneer’s net sales for the quarter of $419 million increased by 16% compared to the same quarter in 2020. The organic sales1 grew by 17% and the net currency translation effects were positive by 6%, which was essentially offset by the effect from the divestiture of the VNBS brake business in 2020. Given the regional LVP mix during the quarter, organic sales development was in line with our own expectations. Veoneer outperformed the LVP in all regions.
According to IHS Markit, the global LVP increased approximately 14% for the quarter as compared to 2020. This increase, was driven by China and is a reflection of the early outbreak of COVID-19 in 2020, which affected the rest of the world mainly during Q2, 2020. China's YoY growth was 79%, or 2.4 million vehicles.
Restraint Control Systems - Net sales for the quarter of $189 million increased by 17% as compared to 2020. The organic sales growth of 11%, was primarily driven by China, but all regions saw organic sales growth as a result of new program launches during the second half of 2020.
Active Safety - Net sales for the quarter of $206 million increased by 27% as compared to 2020. The increase was primarily driven by the organic sales increase of 18%. The strong growth was primarily driven by new and recent program launches across the product portfolio particularly in China and Japan and also in Europe.
Strong volume demand for mono, stereo and thermal camera systems, radar and ADAS ECUs on several models, and across multiple customers drove the increase in organic sales. This CPV and volume growth was to a small extent offset by the negative effect of the continued phase-out of mono-vision programs with BMW.
Brake Systems and Other - The combined net sales for the quarter of $24 million declined by $13 million as compared to 2020. This decline was mainly attributable to the VNBS-Asia Brake Systems divestiture in 2020. The Brake Systems sales of $11 million are related to the Honda legacy business and $13 million of Other sales are Brake ECUs to ZF, which partly offset the divestiture effect.

Income Statement
Gross Profit - Gross profit for the quarter of $56 million was $3 million higher as compared to 2020. The positive volume effects, which drove the organic sales growth, were partly mitigated by higher costs related to supply constraints of approximately $5 million. The VNBS divestiture impact was $(4) million and the currency impact was $3 million
Operating Loss - Operating loss for the quarter of $104 million decreased by $18 million as compared to 2020. Net currency effects were $(7) million and the VNBS divestiture impact was $(1) million.
RD&E, net of $117 million decreased by $14 million for the quarter as compared to 2020, mainly as a result of lower costs for engineering, which were partly offset by higher cost for the incorporation of Zenuity employees in July 2020 and VNBS divestiture impact of $1 million.
The SG&A expense of $39 million for the quarter decreased by around $5 million as compared to 2020, mainly due to lower costs for professional services, and VNBS divestiture impact of $1 million.
RD&E and SG&A expenses both continued to decrease as a result of the efficiencies gained under our on-going MAIs.
Net Loss - Net loss for the quarter of $104 million improved by $127 million as compared to 2020 primarily due to the net loss of $67 million from the divestiture of Brake Systems in 2020, the improved operating loss, lower tax expense and Zenuity costs in 2020.
The interest, net and other non-operating items, net combined for the quarter were $2 million worse as compared to 2020, mainly due to a lower cash balance and a decline in interest rates.
Income tax expense of $4 million for the quarter was $19 million lower as compared to 2020. This decrease is mainly due to discrete tax expense of $21 million in 2020 related to the divestiture of VNBS.
Loss per Share - The loss per share of $0.93 for the quarter improved by $1.16 per share as compared to a loss of $2.09 per share in the same quarter in 2020.
Cash Flow and Balance Sheet
Net cash used in operating activities - Net cash used in operating activities of $110 million during the first quarter was $101 million higher as compared to 2020. The change was mainly due to changes in net working capital,which was partially offset by the improvement in EBITDA.
Net cash used in investing activities - Net cash provided in investing activities of $1 million came from capital expenditures of $12 million, offset by a dividend payment of $13 million from the final settlement of the Zenuity JV separation.
Cash flow before financing activities1 - The cash flow before financing activities of $(109) million for the first quarter decreased from $124 million as compared to 2020. This was primarily due to the proceeds from the VNBS divestiture of $176 million in 2020 and the change in net working capital.
Net Working Capital1 - Net working capital for the first quarter of $(47) million was a $50 million increase as compared to the fourth quarter 2020, mainly due to a $20 million tax payment related to the VNBS-Asia divestiture, higher inventories net and incentive payouts.
Capital Expenditures - Capital expenditures of $12 million for the first quarter decreased by $15 million as compared to 2020 mainly due to lower investments in facility expansions.
Cash and cash equivalents - The Company had cash and cash equivalents of $645 million, which decreased by $113 million during the first quarter mainly due to the operating cash flow.

2021 Outlook (unchanged)
The macro-economic environment remains very uncertain, mainly due to the global supply chain challenges created as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. These global supply chain shortages have led multiple OEM customers to reduce their production schedules on short notice, which in turn makes the global LVP very difficult to forecast.Our indication for the second quarter of 2021 is that our organic sales1 are expected to out-perform the global LVP.
For the full year 2021, we expect our organic sales growth to exceed 25% and a currency translation, net increase of 3%, both as compared to 2020. Also for full year 2021, we estimate Active Safety organic sales growth to be approximately 45%. We anticipate positive leverage on this organic sales growth during 2021 to improve our gross margin, however, this leverage improvement is expected to be more weighted toward the second half of 2021.
The RD&E, net run rate is expected to be in the range of $110 to $120 million per quarter, while capital expenditures and depreciation are expected to be approximately $100 million and $115 million, respectively, for the full year 2021. As a result of these underlying assumptions, we expect our operating loss for the full year 2021 to improve as compared to 2020, and we expect our cash balance to be more than $400 million at 2021 year-end. We also expect our operating loss and cash flow performance to improve sequentially during 2021.
Veoneer expects its order intake to increase in 2021 as compared to 2020, with the main awards expected in the second half of the year.

COVID-19 and supply constraint commentary
The COVID-19 pandemic continues to cause significant uncertainty in the global economy. This includes the automotive industry and the global LVP for 2021 and the upcoming years ahead, which are dependent on underlying consumer demand. Simultaneously and triggered by the COVID-19 pandemic, the automotive industry, like other industries dependent on semiconductors, is experiencing challenges in the supply of Semiconductors.
Our OEM customers continue to recover to more normal volumes, or higher than normal volumes in certain countries, and during the fourth quarter of 2020 and into 2021, we have returned to higher production levels as well. The health and safety of our associates continues to be our first priority, and we are taking the necessary actions to protect our associates, safeguard our operations and meet our customers' needs while managing through these unprecedented circumstances.
We are also working to minimize the impact from the supply constraints in semiconductors. Despite these efforts we expect these constraints to impact second quarter sales after which we believe a recovery will begin. Currently it is hard to predict the pace of the second half recovery, but as underlying consumer demand continues to look strong we anticipate a strong if not full recovery during the second half of the year as vaccination programs eases the constraints from COVID-19 and the semiconductor industry starts to catch up with demand. These assumptions are taken into account in our full year 2021 outlook.
For 2021 and the upcoming years, the most important driver for Veoneer’s business is new customer and technology launches, which should drive significant out-performance as compared to the global LVP.
As noted in our 2020 full year results and first quarter 2021 results, in response to the pandemic, the Company continues to extend its MAIs to further mitigate the impact of the pandemic on its cash flow and operating results. As part of the MAIs, the Company during the first quarter undertook certain restructuring activities, recording restructuring expenses of ~$2 million, impacting certain engineering and administrative functions.

Associates, net decreased by 31 to 7,512 during the quarter as compared to 7,543 in the previous quarter.
The decrease was mainly attributable to a decrease in RD&E associates which was partly offset by an increase in direct labor. The RD&E decrease was a result of the on-going Market Adjustment Initiatives, while the slight increase in direct labor was in support of the many on-going vehicle launches and volume ramp ups that Veoneer is currently undertaking.
Compared to March 31, 2020 the total number of associates decreased by 59. In support of increased production volumes direct manufacturing associates increased by 163, while RD&E staff decreased by 182 as a part of our on-going market adjustment program. The increase in temporary associates was mainly related to an increase in production staff resulting from the reduced production in Q1 2020 due to COVID-19.

Non-U.S. GAAP Financial Measures
Non-U.S. GAAP financial measures are reconciled throughout this report.
In this report we refer to organic sales or changes in organic sales growth, a non-U.S. GAAP financial measure that we, investors and analysts use to analyze the Company's sales trends and performance. We believe that this measure assists investors and management in analyzing trends in the Company's business because the Company generates approximately 68% of its sales in currencies other than in U.S. dollars (its reporting currency) and currency rates have been and can be rather volatile. The Company has historically made several acquisitions and divestitures, although none that impacted the reporting periods in question. Organic sales and organic sales growth represent 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 on the Company’s performance. The tables in this report present the reconciliation of changes in the total U.S. GAAP net sales to changes in organic sales growth.
The Company uses in this report EBITDA, a non-U.S. GAAP financial measure, which represents the Company’s net income excluding interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization and including loss from equity method investment. The tables below provide reconciliations of net income (loss) to EBITDA.
The Company uses in this report net working capital, a non-U.S. GAAP financial measure, which is defined as current assets (excluding cash and cash equivalents) minus current liabilities excluding short-term debt and net assets and liabilities held for sale. The Company also uses in this report cash flow before financing activities, a non-U.S. GAAP financial measure, which is defined as net cash used in operating activities plus net cash used in investing activities. The Company also uses in this report free cash flow a non-U.S. GAAP financial measure, which is defined as net cash used in operating activities less capital expenditures. Management uses these measures to improve its ability to assess operating performance at a point in time as well as the trends over time. The tables below provide a reconciliation of current assets and liabilities to net working capital, cash flow before financing activities and free cash flow.
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. These measures, as defined, may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies.
Forward-looking non-U.S. GAAP financial measures used in this report are provided on a non-U.S. GAAP basis. Veoneer has not provided a U.S. GAAP reconciliation of these measures because items that impact these measures, such as foreign currency exchange rates and future investing activities, cannot be reasonably predicted or determined. As a result, such reconciliations are not available without unreasonable efforts and Veoneer is unable to determine the probable significance of the unavailable information.
