BorgWarner to buy rival auto parts supplier Delphi for $3.3B

Auto parts supplier BorgWarner is acquiring Delphi Technologies in an all-stock deal valued at approximately $3.3 billion, partly to help strengthen its power electronics products.

Delphi Technologies PLC shareholders will receive a fixed exchange ratio of 0.4534 shares of BorgWarner stock for each Delphi Technologies share they own.

BorgWarner Inc. stockholders are expected to own about 84% of the combined company, with Delphi Technologies shareholders owning approximately 16%.

BorgWarner President and CEO Frederic Lissalde will lead the combined company, which will be based at BorgWarner’s headquarters in Auburn Hills, Michigan.

Both companies have major operations in Indiana that employ hundreds of workers.

The transaction is targeted to close in the second half of the year. It still needs approval from Delphi Technologies shareholders.

BorgWarner’s stock fell 8% in Tuesday morning trading, while shares of Delphi Technologies soared nearly 60%.
