Stockholm, Sweden, May 29, 2019: Veoneer, Inc. (NYSE: VNE and SSE: VNE SDB), a pure-play company focused on Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) and Automated Driving (AD), today announced that the Capital Raise initiated on May 20 closed on May 28. The total proceeds from the capital raise amounts to $627 million, prior to deducting underwriting discounts and offering expenses.

  • $207 million aggregate principal amount of 4.00% Convertible Senior Notes due 2024. An increase from the previously announced $180M, as the underwriters exercised their over-allotment option in full by purchasing an additional $27 million of notes.
