From the time COVID-19 first struck, our primary focus was on protecting the health, safety and economic well-being of our employees. Overall, I believe our second-half results demonstrate Magna’s resilience – we are emerging even stronger from the challenges we faced in 2020. Our outlook reflects a product strategy aligned with sustainability objectives, further growth driven by technologies that support the car of the future, margin expansion and continued strong free cash flow generation.” - Swamy Kotagiri, Magna's Chief Executive Officer

We took steps to conserve cash and reduce costs, while continuing to invest for the future. As vehicle production recovered in the second half of the year, we proved our ability to generate strong cash flow that, together with our balance sheet, position us to capitalize on future opportunities in mobility. Our dividend increase, the eleventh consecutive annual increase, reflects the ongoing confidence that management and our Board have in Magna’s future.” - Vince Galifi, Magna's Chief Financial Officer
