“Our financial results for the second quarter of 2019 reflect Garrett’s success maintaining a solid margin profile in a challenging market environment,” said Olivier Rabiller, Garrett president and CEO. “Our disciplined productivity management, both internally and with our supply base, has enabled us to deliver strong margins despite the slowdown in global auto production and the accelerated rebalancing of our portfolio toward gasoline turbos. In Q2, our gasoline products grew to 31% of total revenue, up 600 basis points from a year ago.

“Garrett remains focused on further developing its technology leadership to benefit from increasing turbo adoption and to provide customers with innovative and differentiated solutions that address the challenges facing the automotive industry. With a strong position in its core turbo activities and a highly productive and flexible global operating platform, Garrett remains well-positioned to help the auto industry’s transformation toward more electrified and connected vehicles and to create long term value for shareholders.”

Results of Operations 

Net sales for the second quarter of 2019 were $802 million compared to $877 million in the second quarter of 2018, a decrease of 8.6%. On an organic basis, net sales for the quarter declined 3.9%. The company said this decrease was primarily driven by lower net sales for light vehicles OEM products by $53 million ($31 million of which was due to foreign currency translation). Lower diesel volumes in Europe and Asia were partially offset by higher gasoline volumes stemming from increased turbocharger penetration in gasoline engines and new product launches.
