  • Diluted EPS of $1.26, up 25% year over year (up 24% year to date)

  • Record net sales for the first half of the year in the Outside North America On-Highway end market

INDIANAPOLIS, August 03, 2022--(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 second quarter of $664 million, a 10 percent increase from the same period in 2021, driven by price increases, resilient customer demand despite persistent supply chain challenges and the continued execution of growth initiatives.

David S. Graziosi, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Allison Transmission commented, "Second quarter 2022 results demonstrate solid year over year performance. Net sales growth of 10 percent was once again surpassed by Diluted EPS growth of 25 percent. Per share returns in excess of net sales and net income growth are driven by Allison’s disciplined and well-defined approach to capital allocation. In spite of a challenging environment, the Allison team continues to deliver balanced execution, while driving multi-year growth initiatives across all of our end markets."

Graziosi continued, "As a result of the ongoing strength in Allison’s global On- and Off-Highway end markets, we are pleased to affirm the full year 2022 guidance midpoints, while narrowing the guidance ranges, provided to the market on February 16. Finally, during the second quarter, we settled $34 million of share repurchases and paid a quarterly dividend of $0.21 per share to shareholders. As of June 30, Allison had repurchased 3 percent of outstanding shares, year to date."

Second Quarter Financial Highlights

Net sales for the quarter were $664 million. Year over year results were led by:

  • A 13 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 million increase in net sales in the Global Off-Highway end markets driven by sustained demand for hydraulic fracturing applications in the energy sector as well as higher demand in the mining and construction sectors,

  • An 8 percent increase in net sales in the Service Parts, Support Equipment and Other end market principally driven by North America service parts and global support equipment, and

  • A 7 percent increase in net sales in the Outside North America On-Highway end market principally driven by improving demand in Europe and South America.

Net income for the quarter was $122 million. Diluted EPS for the quarter was $1.26. Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, for the quarter was $227 million. Net cash provided by operating activities for the quarter was $66 million. Adjusted free cash flow, a non-GAAP financial measure, for the quarter was $36 million.

Second Quarter Financial Results

Gross profit for the quarter was $311 million, an increase of 8 percent from $288 million for the same period in 2021. The increase in gross profit was principally driven by price increases on certain products and higher net sales partially offset by unfavorable material costs.

Selling, general and administrative expenses for the quarter were $78 million, a decrease of $2 million from $80 million for the same period in 2021. The decrease was principally driven by lower commercial activities spending.

Engineering – research and development expenses for the quarter were $46 million, an increase of $5 million from $41 million for the same period in 2021. The increase was principally driven by increased product initiatives spending.

Net income for the quarter was $122 million, an increase of $12 million from $110 million for the same period in 2021. The increase was principally driven by higher gross profit partially offset by increased product initiatives spending.

Net cash provided by operating activities was $66 million, a decrease of $74 million from $140 million for the same period in 2021. The decrease was principally driven by higher operating working capital funding requirements and higher cash income taxes partially offset by higher gross profit.

Second Quarter Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Adjusted EBITDA for the quarter was $227 million, an increase of $14 million from $213 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 spending.

Adjusted free cash flow for the quarter was $36 million, a decrease of $59 million from $95 million for the same period in 2021. The decrease was driven by lower net cash provided by operating activities partially offset by lower capital expenditures.

Full Year 2022 Guidance Update

We are narrowing the full year 2022 guidance ranges and affirming the guidance midpoints released to the market on February 16. Allison expects 2022 Net Sales in the range of $2,650 to $2,750 million, Net Income in the range of $450 to $500 million, Adjusted EBITDA in the range of $885 to $955 million, Net Cash Provided by Operating Activities in the range of $590 to $660 million, Adjusted Free Cash Flow in the range of $420 to $480 million and Capital Expenditures in the range of $170 to $180 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 our growth initiatives.

We undertake no obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statement, whether as a result of new information, future events, changed circumstances or otherwise. These forward-looking statements are subject to numerous risks and uncertainties, including, but not limited to: increases in cost, disruption of supply or shortage of labor, freight, raw materials or components used to manufacture or transport our products or those of our customers or suppliers, including as a result of the war in Ukraine and the COVID-19 pandemic; global economic conditions; the duration and spread of the COVID-19 pandemic, including new variants of the virus and the pace and availability of vaccines and boosters, mitigating efforts deployed by government agencies and the public at large, and the overall impact from such outbreak on economic conditions, financial market volatility and our business, including but not limited to the operations of our manufacturing and other facilities, the availability of labor, our supply chain, our distribution processes and demand for our products and the corresponding impacts to our net sales and cash flow; our participation in markets that are competitive; our ability to prepare for, respond to and successfully achieve our objectives relating to technological and market developments, competitive threats and changing customer needs, including with respect to electric hybrid and fully electric commercial vehicles; the highly cyclical industries in which certain of our end users operate; uncertainty in the global regulatory and business environments in which we operate; the concentration of our net sales in our top five customers and the loss of any one of these; the failure of markets outside North America to increase adoption of fully automatic transmissions; the success of our research and development efforts, the outcome of which is uncertain; U.S. and foreign defense spending; risks associated with our international operations, including acts of war and increased trade protectionism; general economic and industry conditions; the discovery of defects in our products, resulting in delays in new model launches, recall campaigns and/or increased warranty costs and reduction in future sales or damage to our brand and reputation; our ability to identify, consummate and effectively integrate acquisitions and collaborations; labor strikes, work stoppages or similar labor disputes, which could significantly disrupt our operations or those of our principal customers or suppliers; risks related to our indebtedness; and other risks and uncertainties associated with our business described in our Annual Report on Form 10-K and Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q.

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.
