“Finally, we established a position in manufacturer of premium fuel and electrical systems, PHINIA Inc. (NYSE:PHIN), which was a spinoff from BorgWarner Inc. (BWA). Phinia is focused on the design and development of performance and emissions components of combustion and hybrid vehicles. The remaining BWA business produces components with similar capabilities, however, BWA is focused on electric vehicles. Overall, the market is excited about the longer-term organic growth of BWA at lower margins versus the higher margin Phinia business given questions of how long demand for combustion/hybrid vehicles will continue.”
