First quarter 2014

Increased volumes and operational improvements

During the first quarter of 2014, demand for the Volvo Group’s products continued its gradual improvement in the mature economies in North America, Western Europe and Japan, while the emerging economies in South America and Asia saw weaker demand. Net sales rose by 13% to SEK 65.6 billion and operating income amounted to SEK 2.6 billion excluding restructuring costs, corresponding to a margin of 3.9%. The measures that are being implemented to increase the Group’s profitability are running according to plan and are starting to have a positive impact on the gross margin and costs, but there is still more work to do in terms of cost reductions and this is the Group’s main focus for 2014.
