    UPDATE 2-Volvo Cars to cut costs as trade war dents profits

    Volvo plans to cut fixed costs by 2 billion Swedish crowns ($214 million), it said on Thursday, becoming the latest carmaker to warn that pricing pressure and tariffs arising from the China-U.S. trade war were denting profitability. Carmakers are under pressure from trade conflicts, hefty investments to develop electric and driverless cars and an overall downturn in the car industry, with warnings seen from Daimler and BMW. Volvo has rejigged its global production plans in an effort to reduce the impact of tariffs and has begun a review of costs, which CEO Hakan Samuelsson told Reuters had led to hourly wage cuts and the elimination of 750 roles, mainly consultants.

    Sweden seeks lithium tie-ups in South America amid 'white gold' rush

    Sweden is turning its gaze towards Peru and other South American countries for lithium tie-ups amid a global race to lock in supply of the "white gold" metal that is key for the batteries that power electric vehicles. A senior trade official from the Scandinavian nation told Reuters by phone that firms in Sweden - which is making a push in such batteries is home to global car brand Volvo - were looking for alliances with regional lithium and copper producers. Governments and automakers around the world, with an eye on huge expected demand for electric cars, are looking to seal tie-ups for the light metal, including in the so-called "lithium triangle" centered on Chile, Bolivia and Argentina.

    Volvo solves autonomous revenue riddle with package deals

    Swedish truckmaker AB Volvo's first commercial autonomous truck deal shows how it is bundling services to generate revenue from a technology that is years away from wide deployment. Volvo, the world's second biggest truckmaker behind Daimler, has decided for now to only deploy driverless trucks in pilots for customers, aiming to perform specific jobs on a limited, repetitive and controlled route, often on enclosed customer sites. "There's a lot of uncertainties and that's why we believe the right way to develop autonomous is with commercial pilots where we partner up with customers, go for real implementations and learn from that," Sasko Cuklev, Volvo Trucks' autonomous solutions director, told Reuters in an interview.

    Volkswagen’s Truck Unit Opens Flat in Frankfurt Trading Debut

    (Bloomberg) -- Volkswagen AG’s trucks unit fell on its first day of trading as investors took a cautious stance on its global expansion plan, which includes boosting its U.S. footprint and going head-to-head with market leaders Daimler AG and Volvo Group.Traton SE declined as much as 2.4% to 26.36 euros after its initial public offering priced at 27 euros, the bottom of the range. Volkswagen raised 1.55 billion euros ($1.8 billion) from listing a stake of about 11.5% in a transaction that values the German auto giant’s truck unit at 13.5 billion euros.Other recent industrial stock offerings have fared better. German commercial vehicles brakes maker Knorr-Bremse AG has gained 21% since its IPO in October, tracked by Swiss train maker Stadler Rail AG’s performance after listing in April.A completion of the sale, one of Europe’s biggest this year, is still a sea change in the Wolfsburg-based company’s effort to streamline its sprawling empire after a decade of rapid expansion. Over the years, Volkswagen added Porsche, Bentley luxury cars, Ducati motorcycles and heavy truck brands. In the age of electric and self-driving vehicles, the cumbersome structures that have grown around a network of well over 100 factories are slowing decision-making and causing the company to risk falling behind.VW’s byzantine governance with a powerful labor council and complex ownership structure has often stood in the way of deeper changes in recent years. A plan to sell Ducati was derailed in 2017 because of internal resistance, making Traton’s IPO a milestone for Chief Executive Officer Herbert Diess and trucks head Andreas Renschler, who bought 540,000 euros worth of Traton shares.VW could use Traton’s IPO proceeds to expand the division’s footprint in North America -- the truck industry’s largest profit pool -- where the carmaker holds a 16.8% stake in Navistar International Corp. Renschler has said he wants to expand on a leading position in Europe and Latin America with future potential moves on acquisitions and alliances to grow into a global truckmaker.Analysts have speculated on a buyout of Navistar after Traton’s listing, with Bloomberg Intelligence analyst Christopher Ciolino calling a deal “a likely outcome.” In a report last month, he wrote that Navistar could command an equity value of as much as $5.3 billion, while the market may start to weaken in the fourth quarter.The listing was a “big step” forward for Traton’s strategy, Renschler said, speaking at the Frankfurt stock exchange. The company is also listed in Stockholm, home to the truckmaker’s Scania brand, its biggest profit contributor.The stock was at 26.49 euros as of 3:18 p.m. in Frankfurt, while Bharti Airtel Ltd.’s Africa unit, which also started trading Friday, declined 13% after also pricing its offer at the low end of its range.“The market is what it is,” Scania CEO Henrik Henriksson said in an interview. “The important thing for us is that we have a strategy and a plan that we believe wholeheartedly in.”Traton’s stock will be tracked by investors as a peer to Sweden’s Volvo, the only standalone commercial-vehicle manufacturer in Europe that competes with a similar product range. Led by former Scania chief Martin Lundstedt, Volvo set the bar high with a successful restructuring that boosted returns within three years. At VW, the MAN truck unit has made only tepid progress in recent years on lifting profit margins.The European market for trucks is expected to soften during the second half of the year, Jefferies analyst Graham Phillips said in a note this week, noting Volvo’s decision to reduce a summer production shift. Heavy-truck registrations in May were “stronger than expected,” helped by one-off effects like pre-buying ahead of a digital tachograph requirement that took effect this month.Volkswagen CEO Diess, in the job for just over a year, is renewing the push to lift the company’s poor valuation by becoming less centralized. Increasing the valuation will be key “currency” in the industry’s phase of consolidation and partnerships in the shift to electric and self-driving cars, he said at a recent meeting of top management. The company trades at a price-to-earnings multiple of 6.4 times, compared with Germany’s Dax Index at 16.2.VW is a behemoth that sprawls across 122 factories worldwide with some 650,000 employees. The company has started to review strategic options including a possible sale of other non-auto businesses, including transmissions maker Renk AG and MAN Energy Solutions, which produces large diesel engines for ships and turbines. It’s also open to sell more Traton shares.Aside from the Navistar holding, Traton owns a 25% stake Sinotruk Hong Kong Ltd. in China, while Daimler and Volvo both have local production ventures. Traton wants to expand the MAN brand’s presence in China and is developing a dealer network for Scania in the country, Renschler said in a Bloomberg TV interview. “We see the potential for European trucks in China is really growing,” he said.(Adds truck chief comment from Bloomberg TV interview in last paragraph.)\--With assistance from Swetha Gopinath, Oliver Sachgau, Niclas Rolander and Phil Serafino.To contact the reporter on this story: Christoph Rauwald in Frankfurt at crauwald@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Kenneth Wong at kwong11@bloomberg.net, Elisabeth Behrmann, Chris ReiterFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.
