On May 09, 2017, Autoliv's Board of Directors declared a quarterly dividend of $0.60 per share for Q3 2017. The dividend will be payable on Thursday, September 07, 2017 to Autoliv's stockholders of record on the close of business on Wednesday, August 23, 2017.

Autoliv's indicated dividend represents a yield of 2.21%, which is comfortably higher than the average dividend yield of 1.86% for the Consumer Goods sector. The Company has raised its dividend for seven consecutive years.
Autoliv has a dividend payout ratio of 38.8%, which means that the Company distributes approximately $0.39 for every $1.00 earned. The dividend payout ratio reflects how much money a Company is returning to shareholders versus how much money it is keeping on hand to reinvest in growth, to pay off debt, and/or to add to its cash reserves.
According to analyst estimates, Autoliv is forecasted to report earnings of $7.01 for the next year which is substantially above its annualized dividend of $2.40.
For Q2 2017, Autoliv's cash flow from operations amounted to $179 million compared to $103 million in Q2 2016. The Company's gross interest-bearing debt decreased during the quarter by $37 million to $1,512 million. As of June 30, 2017, Autoliv had a leverage ratio of 0.7x. The Company's cash and cash equivalents were $922.5 million as on June 30, 2017. The strong financial position indicates the Company's ability to absorb any fluctuations in earnings and cash flow and to sustain its dividend distribution for a long period.
