On December 12, 2017, Autoliv announced that, following the conclusion of a strategic review by the board of directors, it intended to spin-off its Electronics business segment, creating a new, independent publicly traded company called Veoneer, Inc.

In connection with the spin-off and the listing of shares of Veoneer common stock on the New York Stock Exchange and Veoneer SDRs on Nasdaq Stockholm, Autoliv and Veoneer have prepared a registration statement as well as a Swedish prospectus. The registration statement became effective and the prospectus was approved and registered on June 8, and the first day of regular way trading of Veoneer was July 2, 2018.

Veoneer is a growing technology company, focused on active safety, ADAS, autonomous driving and automotive safety electronics. Veoneer’s purpose is to create trust in mobility.  In 2017, Veoneer (as the Electronics business segment of Autoliv) had a turnover of $2.3 billion. Veoneer currently has around 7,600 associates out of which roughly half are in RD&E. Veoneer’s customers are nearly all the top automotive manufacturers in the world. The market value of Veoneer, Inc. on the first day of trading was approximately SEK 34 billion.

Vinge’s team primarily consisted of Göran Nyström, Dain Hård Nevonen, Malte Hedlund, Sabina Kihlberg and Stephanie Stiernstedt, as well as Albert Wållgren, Helena Håkansson, Lionardo Ojeda and Sara Osman regarding financing issues.
