Factors at Play
The Zacks Consensus Estimate for BorgWarner’s Air Management segment’s sales is pegged at $1,582 million, for the period in discussion, suggesting a fall from the $2,011 million reported in the prior quarter. In addition, the consensus mark for the segment’s EBIT is pinned at $223 million, calling for a slump from the $322 million seen in the first quarter of 2021.
The consensus mark for quarterly sales from the e-Propulsion & Drivetrain segment is pegged at $1,201 million, suggesting a drop from the $1,466 million registered in the last quarter. The same for the segmental EBIT is $97 million, indicating a plunge from the prior quarter’s $137 million.
The consensus mark for quarterly sales from the Fuel Injection unit is pegged at $473 million, calling for a marginal fall from the $475 million witnessed in the prior quarter.
Nonetheless, the consensus mark for quarterly sales from the Aftermarket unit is pinned at $200 million, indicating an improvement from the $197 million recorded in the March-end quarter.
While the projected declines in revenue and earnings across all major segments might have hurt the company’s performance during the quarter under review, BorgWarner is likely to have benefited from the accelerating vehicle electrification efforts and progress made on project Charging Forward during the quarter.
