August 6, 2019 – Auto parts manufacturer Martinrea International Inc. has reported earnings roughly in line with expectations despite some signs of a slowdown in the industry.

The Toronto-based company says it had net earnings of $28.1 million or 34 cents per share for the quarter ending June 30, compared with earnings of $55.7 million or 64 cents per share last year.

Martinrea says adjusted net earnings came in at $54.6 million, or 66 cents per share for the quarter, compared with $55.5 million 64 cents per share last year, and slightly higher than analyst expectations of 65 cents per share according to financial markets data firm Refinitiv.

Sales came in at $948.5 million for the quarter, up from $921.7 million for the same quarter last year.

The company says it hit a record for second quarter earnings despite the overall market seeing volume headwinds and a number of suppliers seeing reduced margins and earnings.

The auto market has been struggling as China, the world's largest market, has seen a significant drop in sales in recent months while sales growth has slowed in the U.S.
