Westport Fuel Systems, Inc. (WPRT)

The alphaDIRECT Insight

Westport Fuel Systems has experienced a significant transition over the past few years, including a senior management change and a major merger, which streamlined the company into three main business divisions: Automotive, the Cummins Westport joint venture, and Corporate and Technology. The focus of the alphaDIRECT Series is to help investors gain a basic understanding of the business operations before we take a deeper dive into the company. There are a number of market drivers for Westport Fuel Systems that include both economic advantages as well as environmental and emissions benefits. We believe that natural gas will play a meaningful role in the clean transportation future and Westport Fuel Systems is well positioned to benefit from these trends.  This has been a critical transformation for investors to understand as the technology converges with market dynamics and the company moves forward on executing its growth strategy across all three divisions.
