BorgWarner’s Q3 operating income, sales edge up

BorgWarner’s third quarter operating income and sales edged up as it saw growth in its drivetrain business.

The supplier reported net income of $111 million, a drop of 43 percent from the year-ago period. Operating income rose 2.9 percent to $284 million.

Revenue during the quarter came in at $2.53 billion, up 1.7 percent.

The growth in sales was driven by the supplier’s drivetrain segment, which reported sales of $1 billion in the third quarter, up 8.3 percent from the same quarter last year. The gains were offset by lower sales in its engine segment, which reported a 2.5 percent decline, to $1.48 billion, during the fourth quarter.

BorgWarner is forecasting fourth-quarter revenue in the range of $3.46 billion to $3.61 billion, reflecting $950 million to $1 billion in added sales from an acquisition of Delphi Technologies, which closed this month.

The guidance assumes no additional production disruptions arising from COVID-19.

For all of 2020, the company expects revenue to tally between $9.7 billion and $9.85 billion, which implies a year-over-year decrease in organic sales of 12.5 percent to 13.5 percent.
