BorgWarner Inc. has announced the successful completion of the spin-off of its Fuel Systems and Aftermarket segments into a separate, publicly-traded company named PHINIA.
“A tremendous amount of work has gone into bringing us to where we are today,” said Frédéric Lissalde, President and Chief Executive Officer, BorgWarner Inc. Two years ago, BorgWarner announced Charging Forward, the company’s strategy to accelerate its transition to electrification. That strategy included the disposition of $3B to $4B in combustion-related revenue by 2025. The completion of the spin-off of PHINIA combined with the 2022 sale of the North American controls business represents the completion of this key pillar of the Charging Forward strategy.
“This important step allows both BorgWarner and PHINIA to focus on and continue to pursue their respective strategies. We wish the PHINIA team the best as they begin their own journey as a new, independent company,” said Lissalde.
At BorgWarner’s recent Investor Relations Day at the New York Stock Exchange on June 6, 2023, Charging Forward 2027 was unveiled. This next phase of the strategy focuses on further advancing BorgWarner’s position as a technology leader in eProducts and maximizing the value of its foundational portfolio.
As part of Charging Forward 2027, the company established 2027 targets of achieving more than $10 billion in eProduct revenue, delivering approximately 7% adjusted operating margin on its eProduct portfolio, and sustaining its strong foundational operating margins.
