Revenue by Region 

In Europe and Africa, revenue decreased 2.1% at constant currency and outperformed light vehicle production volume in that region by 6.1% mainly attributable to favourable mix and tooling revenue in FTDS.  

Asia Pacific revenue slightly decreased by 1.9% at constant currency and outperformed light vehicle production volume in that region by 5.6%, primarily due to new business in fuel tanks.

In North America, revenue decreased by 11.6% at constant currency or 9.1% below light vehicle production volume in that region. This was primarily due to lower launch activity compared to the same period in the prior year and mix.

Revenue by Segment

FCS revenue decreased by 10.8% at constant currency and was impacted by the lower launch activity and mix in North America.

FTDS revenue grew 4.2% at constant currency and continued to benefit from new business wins, primarily in Europe and Asia Pacific, as well as related favourable launch timing and tooling revenue.  


The 2019 outlook for the Group provided in the 2018 full year results announcement remains unchanged.
