BMW AG says it has moved a portion of its engine production out of the U.K. ahead of the country’s exit from the European Union at the end of October, Reuters reports.

Both candidates to succeed Prime Minister Theresa May have said they are prepared for a “no-deal” Brexit, which would disrupt supply chains and add tariffs.
