Howmet Aerospace (NYSE:HWM) today reported second quarter 2022 results. The Company reported second quarter 2022 revenues of $1.39 billion, up 17% year over year, primarily driven by growth in the commercial aerospace market of 34%.

Howmet Aerospace reported net income of $147 million, or $0.35 per share, in the second quarter 2022 versus net income of $74 million, or $0.17 per share, in the second quarter 2021. Net income excluding special items was $149 million, or $0.35 per share, in the second quarter 2022, versus $96 million, or $0.22 per share, in the second quarter 2021.

Second quarter 2022 Adjusted EBITDA excluding special items was $317 million, up 17% year over year. The year-over-year increase was driven by growth in the commercial aerospace market, partially offset by an increase in inflationary costs. Adjusted EBITDA margin, excluding special items, was flat year over year at 22.8% while passing through approximately $60 million of additional material costs year over year.

Howmet Aerospace Executive Chairman and Chief Executive Officer John Plant said, “In the second quarter 2022, Howmet Aerospace delivered another strong set of results as the commercial aerospace recovery continued, with the end market’s revenue up 34% year over year and 7% sequentially. All segments increased revenue year over year and sequentially. Adjusted EBITDA also improved year over year and sequentially. Adjusted EBITDA margin was healthy at 22.8%. The team continued to drive solid margin performance despite inflationary pressures and net headcount additions to support the continued aerospace recovery. Adjusted EPS exceeded the high end of guidance and was up 59% year over year.”

Mr. Plant continued, “Looking ahead, commercial aerospace narrow body production rates continue to improve and are the primary growth driver through 2022, while we expect wide body volumes to improve as we move into 2023. While 2022 is a transition year for Howmet’s defense aerospace growth following last year’s updated F-35 build rate forecast, we continue to expect the defense aerospace market to resume growth in 2023. Commercial transportation is expected to improve as customer supply chain challenges ease, while industrial gas turbine and oil and gas should grow further as we progress through 2022.”

“Cash generation was healthy, exceeding $100 million in the second quarter 2022. We ended the quarter with $538 million of cash, with a balanced capital allocation approach that included $60 million in common stock repurchases, a $0.02 per share dividend on common stock, and $60 million in debt repurchases. Strong free cash flow performance and a solid balance sheet put Howmet Aerospace in a position of strength. We expect to double the quarterly dividend on common stock to $0.04 per share in the fourth quarter 2022, demonstrating confidence in Howmet’s free cash flow profile.”

1) Excluding Special Items

2) Reconciliations of the forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures, as well as the directly comparable GAAP measures, are not available without unreasonable efforts due to the variability and complexity of the charges and other components excluded from the non-GAAP measures, such as the effects of foreign currency movements, gains or losses on sales of assets, taxes, and any future restructuring or impairment charges. In addition, there is inherent variability already included in the GAAP measures, including, but not limited to, price/mix and volume. Howmet Aerospace believes such reconciliations would imply a degree of precision that would be confusing or misleading to investors.

Total Segment Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure. Management believes that this measure is meaningful to investors because Total Segment Adjusted EBITDA provides additional information with respect to the Company’s operating performance and the Company’s ability to meet its financial obligations. The Total Segment Adjusted EBITDA presented may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies. Howmet’s definition of Total Segment Adjusted EBITDA (Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization) is net margin plus an add-back for depreciation and amortization. Net margin is equivalent to Sales minus the following items: Cost of goods sold; Selling, general administrative, and other expenses; Research and development expenses; and Provision for depreciation and amortization. Special items, including Restructuring and other charges, are also excluded from net margin and Segment Adjusted EBITDA. Differences between the total segment and consolidated totals are in Corporate.

The Accounts Receivable Securitization program remains unchanged at $250 outstanding.

The proceeds from the sale of the corporate center in the second quarter are part of cash from investing activities which are not included in Free cash flow.

Free cash flow is a non-GAAP financial measure. Management believes that this measure is meaningful to investors because management reviews cash flows generated from operations after taking into consideration capital expenditures (due to the fact that these expenditures are considered necessary to maintain and expand the Company's asset base and are expected to generate future cash flows from operations). It is important to note that Free cash flow does not represent the residual cash flow available for discretionary expenditures since other non-discretionary expenditures, such as mandatory debt service requirements, are not deducted from the measure.

Net income excluding Special items and Diluted EPS excluding Special items are non-GAAP financial measures. Management believes that these measures are meaningful to investors because management reviews the operating results of the Company excluding the impacts of Restructuring and other charges, Discrete tax items, and Other special items (collectively, “Special items”). There can be no assurances that additional Special items will not occur in future periods. To compensate for this limitation, management believes that it is appropriate to consider both Net income determined under GAAP as well as Net income excluding Special items and Diluted EPS excluding Special items.

Discrete tax items for each period included the following:

  • for the quarter ended June 30, 2021, a charge related to a U.K. tax rate change $2 and a net charge for other small items $2;
  • for the quarter ended March 31, 2022, an excess benefit for stock compensation ($4) and a net charge for other small items $2;
  • for the quarter ended June 30, 2022, a benefit to release a valuation allowance related to an interest carryforward tax attribute in the U.K. ($6) and a net benefit for other small items ($1);
  • for the six months ended June 30, 2021, a charge related to a U.K. tax rate change $2 and a net charge for other small items $1; and
  • for the six months ended June 30, 2022, a benefit to release a valuation allowance related to an interest carryforward tax attribute in the U.K. ($6), an excess benefit for stock compensation ($5), and a net charge for other small items $2.
(2) The Tax impact on Special items is based on the applicable statutory rates whereby the difference between such rates and the Company’s consolidated estimated annual effective tax rate is itself a Special item.

Operational tax rate is a non-GAAP financial measure. Management believes that this measure is meaningful to investors because management reviews the operating results of the Company excluding the impacts of Special items. There can be no assurances that additional Special items will not occur in future periods. To compensate for this limitation, management believes that it is appropriate to consider both the Effective tax rate determined under GAAP as well as the Operational tax rate.

(1)

Special items for the quarter ended June 30, 2022 include Restructuring and other charges $6, costs related to fires at two plants $2, debt tender fees and related costs $2, and costs associated with closures, shutdowns, and other items $1. Special items for the six months ended June 30, 2022 include Restructuring and other charges $8, costs related to fires at two plants $7, debt tender fees and related costs $2, and costs associated with closures, shutdowns, and other items $1, partially offset by ($3) reimbursement related to legal and advisory charges.

(2)

Tax Special items includes discrete tax items, the tax impact on Special items based on the applicable statutory rates, the difference between such rates and the Company’s consolidated estimated annual effective tax rate and other tax related items. Discrete tax items for each period included the following:

  • for the quarter ended June 30, 2022, a benefit to release a valuation allowance related to an interest carryforward tax attribute in the U.K. ($6) and a net benefit for other small items ($1); and
  • for the six months ended June 30, 2022, a benefit to release a valuation allowance related to an interest carryforward tax attribute in the U.K. ($6), an excess benefit for stock compensation ($5), and a net charge for other small items $2.
