After exiting the commercial aircraft business, selling its aerostructures unit and unloading a large tract of land in Toronto, the company said it is working to reduce debt and "solve its capital structure."

It was only about two years ago that the Aurora, Ont.,-based auto parts giant struck an ambitious partnership with ride-hailing firm Lyft to develop and manufacture self-driving systems at scale. The partnership was proposed as a way to merge Magna's automotive expertise with Lyft's data-gathering and real-world testing to roll out technology that they said was expected to be market-ready over the "next few years" as self-driving ambitions in the industry grew.Canadian Tire Corp. Ltd. (TSX:CTC.A). Up $1.48 to $144.79. Canadian Tire Corp. Ltd. is promoting Gregory Craig to the job of chief financial officer, replacing Dean McCann, who is retiring.

TORONTO — Magna International Inc. is scaling back its partnership with Lyft Inc. to co-develop self-driving technology as it focuses research and development spending on more near-term prospects.It was only about two years ago that the Aurora, Ont.,-based auto parts giant struck an ambitious partnership with ride-hailing firm Lyft to develop and manufacture self-driving systems at scale.The partnership was proposed as a way to merge Magna's automotive expertise with Lyft's data-gathering and real-world testing to roll out technology that they said was expected to be market-ready over the "next few years" as self-driving ambitions in the industry grew.Magna now sees fully self-driving systems as a longer-term, expensive prospect and will shift focus to driver-assist systems with more reasonable timelines, said company CEO Don Walker."I do think that the market has become more realistic about how fast the various technologies will penetrate," said Walker on a conference call.He said the industry and society are still in the early stages of what will be unprecedented changes in mobility.Swamy Kotagiri, who was promoted to company president Thursday, said Magna would continue to work with Lyft on some aspects of software and hardware, but that it has many capabilities in-house."There is a renewed focus both in the market and the industry as well as from our side in terms of the take rates for the assisted driving portion of it. And we have significant programs, and we see a possible ability to address a lot of that market."Kotagiri will also continue to oversee Magna's power and vision business, as well as its corporate research and development programs and related investments.He said the sensor requirements for the higher levels of autonomy, which don't require the driver to always be at least ready to take the wheel, are significantly different to the lower levels that it's focused on.Magna said it will focus more on near-term programs like its front and rear cameras and some surround view systems, as well as advanced radar systems.The company said that overall, it would also continue to work on lightweighting and electrification programs as emission regulations, especially in Europe, push automakers to sell more fuel-efficient vehicles.Magna said in its outlook that it expects 2020 sales to come in between US$38 billion and US$40 billion this year. It said it expects sales to be negatively impacted by a stronger U.S. dollar, the sale of its fluid pressure and controls business and lower expected light vehicle production in Europe.Looking out to 2022, the company expects sales to rise to between US$40.5 billion and US$43.5 billion.This report by The Canadian Press was first published Jan. 16, 2020.Companies in this story: (TSX:MG)Ian Bickis, The Canadian Press

Magna International Inc. (TSX: MG, NYSE: MGA) today announced that the Toronto Stock Exchange ("TSX") had accepted its Notice of Intention to Make a Normal Course Issuer Bid (the "Notice"). Pursuant to the Notice, Magna may purchase up to 30,283,500 Magna Common Shares (the "Bid"), representing approximately 10% of its public float. As at November 1, 2019, Magna had 305,831,639 issued and outstanding Common Shares, including a public float of 302,835,169 Common Shares.
Magna International Inc. has cut its outlook for the year on lost volume from the nearly six-week strike by GM workers in the United States.The Canadian auto-parts manufacturer, which reports in U.S. dollars, said Friday it now expects total sales this year of between $38.7 billion and $39.8 billion, down from between 38.9 billion and $41.1 billion.Magna also estimates 2019 net income of between $1.8 billion and $1.9 billion, a $200 million cut from the top end.The strike by 49,000 United Auto Workers shut down production at more than 30 GM facilities in the U.S. and forced GM to cut back or suspend some operations in Canada and Mexico as well — affecting suppliers like Magna.Magna chief executive Don Walker said Friday that the company, headquartered north of Toronto, in Aurora, Ont., performed fairly well given the circumstance."All things considered, including a labour strike at our largest customer, our adjusted third quarter results came in relatively in line with our expectations," Walker said on a conference call.Adjusted earnings for the quarter ending Sept. 30 came in at $1.41 per share, compared with $1.56 per share a hear earlier, but ahead of the $1.34 expected by analysts according to financial markets data firm Refinitiv.The strike, which continued until Oct. 25, will have a greater effect on fourth quarter results, the company said.Magna could regain some of the lost volume if GM runs overtime shifts, but production wouldn't be as efficient or as profitable, said Walker."[Production] may not be quite at the margins we would normally have in regular time, but it's still good for us if they're running extra volume."Unadjusted, Magna had a net loss of $233 million, or 75 cents per share, after recording a $537 million non-cash impairment charge related to its Getrag joint ventures. The ventures have been hit by declines in manual transmission demand as well as declining Chinese auto sales."We're disappointed in the recent results and future projections in the Getrag joint ventures, in particular, the growth in the Chinese joint ventures," said Walker.However, he said Magna's wholly-owned transmission business based in Europe continues to grow.This report by The Canadian Press was first published Nov. 8, 2019.Companies in this story: (TSX:MG).Ian Bickis, The Canadian Press
