STOCKHOLM and NEW YORK, Dec. 6, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- The automotive technology company Veoneer today announced that it has entered into an agreement with an investment fund managed by American Industrial Partners ("AIP"), for the acquisition of Veoneer's Restraint Control Systems business from SSW Partners LP ("SSW").

The transaction with American Industrial Partners Capital Fund VII ("AIP Fund VII") completes Veoneer's and SSW's strategy of finding the right long-term homes for Veoneer's three original lines of business: Arriver™ Software, now owned by Qualcomm; Active Safety, now owned by Magna International; and Restraint Control Systems, to be acquired by AIP Fund VII.

AIP invests in industrial businesses with a long track record of partnering with and growing businesses across industrial end markets, including several investments in the automotive sector. The combination of AIP's process for investing behind operational capabilities and Veoneer's industry-leading position, products, and competence in Restraint Control Systems creates a strong platform for long-term, sustainable growth for Veoneer, its customers, products and people.
