Allison Transmission Announces Third Quarter 2022 Results

  • Net Sales of $710 million, up 25% year over year
  • Diluted EPS of $1.45, up 63% year over year
  • Record quarterly net sales of $118 million in the Outside North America On-Highway end market

INDIANAPOLIS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Allison Transmission Holdings Inc. (NYSE: ALSN), a leading designer and manufacturer of conventional and electrified vehicle propulsion solutions and the largest global manufacturer of medium- and heavy-duty fully automatic transmissions for commercial and defense vehicles, today reported net sales for the third quarter of $710 million, a 25 percent increase from the same period in 2021, driven by resilient customer demand despite persistent supply chain challenges, price increases and the continued execution of growth initiatives.

David S. Graziosi, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Allison Transmission commented, “Despite the broad and ongoing challenges to supply chains, our third quarter 2022 results demonstrate notable performance with net sales in five out of six end markets up twenty percent or more year over year and record quarterly net sales in our Outside North America On-Highway end market. Year over year net sales growth of 25 percent was surpassed by even stronger growth in diluted EPS, up 63 percent.”

Graziosi continued, “During the third quarter, we maintained our well-defined approach to capital allocation by repurchasing $109 million of our common stock, representing 3 percent of outstanding shares, and paying a dividend of $0.21 per share. In spite of a challenging environment, Allison’s global On- and Off-Highway end markets continue to show strength and as a result we are pleased to raise full year 2022 midpoint guidance.”

Third Quarter Financial Highlights

Net sales for the quarter were $710 million. Year over year results were led by:

  • A 24 percent increase in net sales in the North America On-Highway end market principally driven by continued strength in customer demand for last mile delivery, regional haul and vocational trucks,
  • A 25 percent increase in net sales in the Service Parts, Support Equipment and Other end market principally driven by global service parts and support equipment, and aluminum die cast components,
  • A $26 million increase in net sales in the Global Off-Highway end markets driven by demand for hydraulic fracturing applications in the energy sector as well as higher demand in the mining and construction sectors, and
  • Record quarterly net sales in the Outside North America On-Highway end market, as a result of a 27 percent increase in net sales driven by the continued execution of our growth initiatives in Europe, Asia and South America.

Net income for the quarter was $139 million. Diluted EPS for the quarter was $1.45. Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, for the quarter was $245 million. Net cash provided by operating activities for the quarter was $207 million. Adjusted free cash flow, a non-GAAP financial measure, for the quarter was $182 million.

Third Quarter Financial Results

Gross profit for the quarter was $328 million, an increase of 26 percent from $261 million for the same period in 2021. The increase in gross profit was principally driven by increased net sales and price increases on certain products partially offset by higher direct material costs.

Selling, general and administrative expenses for the quarter were $78 million, an increase of $5 million from $73 million for the same period in 2021. The increase was principally driven by higher commercial activities spending.

Engineering – research and development expenses for the quarter were $47 million, an increase of $5 million from $42 million for the same period in 2021. The increase was principally driven by increased product initiatives spending.

Net income for the quarter was $139 million, an increase of $45 million from $94 million for the same period in 2021. The increase was principally driven by higher gross profit partially offset by an unrealized loss on marketable securities and increased product initiatives and commercial activities spending.

Net cash provided by operating activities was $207 million, an increase of $11 million from $196 million for the same period in 2021. The increase was principally driven by higher gross profit partially offset by fluctuations in operating working capital funding requirements and higher cash income taxes.

Third Quarter Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Adjusted EBITDA for the quarter was $245 million, an increase of $56 million from $189 million for the same period in 2021. The increase in Adjusted EBITDA was principally driven by higher gross profit partially offset by increased product initiatives and commercial activities spending.

Adjusted free cash flow for the quarter was $182 million, an increase of $29 million from $153 million for the same period in 2021. The increase was driven by lower capital expenditures and higher net cash provided by operating activities.

2022 Guidance Update

Given third quarter 2022 results and current end markets conditions, we are raising our full year 2022 guidance midpoints and narrowing ranges. Allison expects 2022 Net Sales in the range of $2,690 to $2,740 million, Net Income in the range of $490 to $510 million, Adjusted EBITDA in the range of $915 to $945 million, Net Cash Provided by Operating Activities in the range of $620 to $650 million, Capital Expenditures in the range of $160 to $170 million, and Adjusted Free Cash Flow in the range of $460 to $480 million.

Our 2022 net sales guidance reflects higher customer demand in the Global On-Highway, Global Off-Highway and Service Parts, Support Equipment & Other end markets, price increases on certain products and the continued execution of growth initiatives.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release contains information about Allison’s financial results and forward-looking estimates of financial results which are not presented in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”). Such non-GAAP financial measures are reconciled to their closest GAAP financial measures at the end of this press release. Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for our reported results prepared in accordance with GAAP and, as calculated, may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies.

We use Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA as a percent of net sales to measure our operating profitability. We believe that Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA as a percent of net sales provide management, investors and creditors with useful measures of the operational results of our business and increase the period-to-period comparability of our operating profitability and comparability with other companies. Adjusted EBITDA as a percent of net sales is also used in the calculation of management’s incentive compensation program. The most directly comparable GAAP measure to Adjusted EBITDA is Net income. The most directly comparable GAAP measure to Adjusted EBITDA as a percent of net sales is Net Income as a percent of net sales. Adjusted EBITDA is calculated as the earnings before interest expense, net, income tax expense, amortization of intangible assets, depreciation of property, plant and equipment and other adjustments as defined by Allison Transmission, Inc.’s, the Company’s wholly-owned subsidiary, Second Amended and Restated Credit Agreement. Adjusted EBITDA as a percent of net sales is calculated as Adjusted EBITDA divided by net sales.

We use Adjusted Free Cash Flow to evaluate the amount of cash generated by our business that, after the capital investment needed to maintain and grow our business and certain mandatory debt service requirements, can be used for the repayment of debt, stockholder distributions and strategic opportunities, including investing in our business. We believe that Adjusted Free Cash Flow enhances the understanding of the cash flows of our business for management, investors and creditors. Adjusted Free Cash Flow is also used in the calculation of management’s incentive compensation program. The most directly comparable GAAP measure to Adjusted Free Cash Flow is Net cash provided by operating activities. Adjusted Free Cash Flow is calculated as Net cash provided by operating activities, after additions of long-lived assets.
