For the three-month period ended September 30, 2007, Autoliv Inc. (NYSE: ALV) and (STO: ALIV) – the worldwide leader in automotive safety systems – reported record sales, operating income and cash flow for a third quarter.

Compared to the same quarter 2006, net sales rose by 10% to $1,557 million, mainly due to 6% growth in organic sales. Operating income improved by 8% to $110 million, resulting in an operating margin of 7.1%. Income before tax increased by 3% to $95 million, while reported net income and earnings per share declined by 48% and 45% to $63 million and 81 cents per share, respectively. The third quarter of the previous year was positively impacted by the release of $66 million in certain tax reserves and other discrete tax items. Excluding this effect of 80 cents per share, underlying net income improved by 13% and earnings per share by 19%. Cash flow from operations amounted to $148 million and before financing activities to $78 million.

For the fourth quarter 2007, sales are expected to increase by approximately 8%. Operating margin is expected to exceed 9.0% compared to 8.5% in the same quarter 2006.
