Revenue

Total revenue in the third quarter of 2018 was $2.372 billion, up 4% year-over-year, with growth in the Clean Air and Ride Performance segments. On a constant currency basis, total revenue increased 7% driven by strong commercial truck and off-highway volumes and new business and incremental content on light vehicles.

On a constant currency basis, value-add revenue increased 5% to $1.776 billion in 2018, significantly outpacing industry production.* Clean Air and Ride Performance revenues increased 6% and 5% respectively, while Aftermarket revenue was up 1% compared to last year.

Adjusted EBIT in 2018 was $149 million, versus $154 million last year. Volume increased in both light vehicle and commercial truck and off-highway applications. Tariff-driven steel commodity costs and currency exchange rates impacted EBIT and margin results in the third quarter of 2018.
