Artisan Mid Cap Value Fund stated the following regarding BorgWarner Inc. (NYSE:BWA) in its fourth quarter 2023 investor letter:

"Shares of BorgWarner Inc. (NYSE:BWA), a tier-one auto parts supplier, have been stuck in neutral. Despite a solid earnings report, investors were spooked by reduced 2023 sales guidance in its electric products “eProducts” business given existing concerns about a broader slowdown in EVs (electric vehicles). However, the new guidance for eProducts still represents 30%+ growth versus FY22, and the majority of BorgWarner’s total sales remain in its legacy ICE (internal combustion engine) business, where it has a dominant position in the highly profitable and free cash flow generative turbocharger business. Navigating the ongoing transition from ICE vehicles to EVs is an ongoing balance between R&D spend to support new product development and maintaining profitability, but at the current depressed valuation (<8X 2024 estimated earnings), we believe the risk-reward for shareholders looks favorable.><8X 2024 estimated earnings), we believe the risk-reward for shareholders looks favorable."
