Aptiv has reported second-quarter net income down 5.8% to US$274m, while revenue fell 2% to US$3.6bn.

“Aptiv’s second-quarter performance, including sustained strong above-market growth despite weak global vehicle production, reflects the efforts we have taken to build a more sustainable business, positioned to efficiently solve our customer’s toughest challenges,” said Aptiv president and CEO, Kevin Clark.

“As evidenced by our performance in the first half of this year, we are well-positioned to outperform in any environment, giving us confidence in our ability to deliver on our commitments for the remainder of the year despite our expectation of continued market headwinds.

“Further, our effective execution, investments for growth and disciplined capital deployment priorities have further strengthened our technology position and robust business model, allowing us to deliver long-term sustainable value to our shareholders.”
