Volvo: Volvo Group - the third quarter 2016

"In the third quarter, profitability improved slightly as better
underlying performance offset the impact from lower volumes. Sales
decreased by 6% to SEK 69 billion. The adjusted operating income
amounted to SEK 4.8 billion, corresponding to an operating margin of
7.0% due to a positive cost development and a strong European truck
market," says Martin Lundstedt, President and CEO.

· In Q3 2016 net sales decreased by 6% to SEK 68.8 billion (73.3).
When adjusted for currency movements and acquired and divested units
the sales decrease was also 6%.

· Adjusted operating income in Q3 2016 amounted to SEK 4,846 M
(5,087), corresponding to an operating margin of 7.0% (6.9). Adjusted
operating income excludes a provision for the settlement with the
European Commission of SEK 190 M in Q3 2016 and restructuring charges
of SEK 434 M in Q3 2015.

· Currency movements had a negative impact on operating income of SEK
45 M.

· Operating cash flow in the Industrial Operations was positive in an
amount of SEK 2.1 billion (neg. 3.3).
