Cat Financial Announces Second-Quarter 2022 Results

·5 min read

NASHVILLE, Tenn., Aug. 2, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Cat Financial reported second-quarter 2022 revenues of $668 million, an increase of $22 million, or 3%, compared with $646 million in the second quarter of 2021. Second-quarter 2022 profit was $143 million, an increase of $1 million, or 1%, compared with $142 million in the second quarter of 2021.

The increase in revenues was primarily due to a $20 million favorable impact from higher average financing rates and an $18 million favorable impact from returned or repossessed equipment, partially offset by a $15 million unfavorable impact from lower average earning assets.

Second-quarter 2022 profit before income taxes was $199 million, an increase of $10 million, or 5%, compared with $189 million in the second quarter of 2021. The increase was primarily due to an $18 million favorable impact from returned or repossessed equipment, partially offset by a $12 million increase in provision for credit losses.

The provision for income taxes reflected an estimated annual tax rate of 26% in the second quarter of 2022, compared with 25% in the second quarter of 2021.

During the second quarter of 2022, retail new business volume was $3.10 billion, a decrease of $429 million, or 12%, from the second quarter of 2021. The decrease was driven by lower volume across all segments with the exception of an increase in Latin America.

At the end of the second quarter of 2022, past dues were 2.19%, compared with 2.58% at the end of the second quarter of 2021. The decrease in past dues was mostly driven by the Caterpillar Power Finance, EAME and North America portfolios. Write-offs, net of recoveries, were less than $1 million for the second quarter of 2022, compared with $54 million for the second quarter of 2021. As of June 30, 2022, the allowance for credit losses totaled $376 million, or 1.41% of finance receivables, compared with $357 million, or 1.29% of finance receivables at March 31, 2022.  The increase in allowance for credit losses included a higher reserve for the Russia and Ukraine portfolios. The allowance for credit losses at year-end 2021 was $337 million, or 1.22% of finance receivables.

"Cat Financial's second-quarter results reflected strong portfolio performance," said Dave Walton, President of Cat Financial and Senior Vice President with responsibility for the Financial Products Division of Caterpillar Inc. "The global Cat Financial team continues to focus on providing financial services solutions to Caterpillar customers and dealers worldwide."
