Significant events during and after the quarter

  • On 13 December 2023, Tobii entered into an agreement to acquire AutoSense, strategically enhancing the position in Automotive Interior Sensing. Simultaneously, a planned rights issue of SEK 300 million in the first quarter of 2024 was announced.
  • The acquisition was completed on 31 January 2024.
  • New financial targets were announced on 1 February 2024.

CEO Anand Srivatsa comments:

“We are pleased that we ended the year on a positive note, reaching our EBIT profitability target for Q4 2023 excluding costs related to the AutoSense acquisition. Revenue declined 4% on an organic basis for the quarter, but we witnessed a significant bounce back from Q3 2023 levels. We also implemented initiatives to reduce our operational cost base by more than 10% in the quarter. These reductions will deliver an ongoing effect in operational expenses in 2024.

We have now closed the acquisition of AutoSense. Tobii has significantly strengthened its position in Automotive Interior Sensing. In total we count seven OEMs as our customers across more than 100 vehicle models. Our technology is proven and since 2019 our automotive solutions have shipped in around 300,000 vehicles on the road. I am excited for us to start the integration process, take advantage of the cost and technology synergies and build on AutoSense's existing success.

We have also announced plans to finance our operational expenses for our Autosense business by raising SEK 300 million through a rights issue in the first quarter 2024, fully financing ourselves for the path to profitability.

These strategic changes considerably enhance Tobii's overall position. As previously communicated, we expect to deliver a significantly improved EBIT result in 2024. We have set new financial targets which replace our existing targets. Aligned with our commitment to profitability, we target a positive cash flow and an EBIT margin of around 10% in 2026 and an EBIT margin of around 20% in 2028.”
