By Graeme Roberts

Truck maker Volvo Group said second quarter 2021, demand for its products and services “continued to be good”.

Sales reached SEK90.6bn (up 24% year on year) and adjusted operating income of SEK 9.7bn compared with SEK3,272bn in pandemic hit Q2 2020.

“In a quarter when shortages of semiconductors as well as other production materials resulted in substantial production stoppages affecting both volume and costs negatively, we achieved an adjusted operating margin of 10.7%,” said president and CEO Martin Lundstedt.

Reported operating income was SEK11,384m (SEK388m).

Currency movements hit operating income by SEK1,532m and earnings per share returned to black ink at SEK4.38 (SEK-0.14).

Operating cash flow improved to SEK5,932m from SEK-5,718m.

The group sold UD Trucks on 1 April and distributed proceeds of SEK19bn to shareholders this month.
