Key Announcements

  • In the third quarter 2022, Howmet Aerospace repurchased approximately 2.8 million shares for $100 million. As of October 28, 2022, total share repurchase authorization available was $1.012 billion.
  • The Company increased the quarterly dividend of its common stock from $0.02 per share to $0.04 per share in the fourth quarter 2022.

Howmet Aerospace (NYSE:HWM) today reported third quarter 2022 results. The Company reported third quarter 2022 revenues of $1.43 billion, up 12% year over year, primarily driven by growth in the commercial aerospace market of 23%.

Howmet Aerospace reported net income of $80 million, or $0.19 per share, in the third quarter 2022 versus net income of $27 million, or $0.06 per share, in the third quarter 2021. Net income excluding special items was $152 million, or $0.36 per share, in the third quarter 2022, versus $120 million, or $0.27 per share, in the third quarter 2021. Net income included approximately $70 million in net charges from special items, primarily due to an adverse judgment from a legal proceeding relating to swaps that were entered into in 2007 and 2008 and assumed as part of the Firth Rixson acquisition in 2014, as well as wheels plant fire costs, partially offset by related tax impacts.

Third quarter 2022 Adjusted EBITDA excluding special items was $323 million, up 11% year over year. The year-over-year increase was driven by volume growth in the commercial aerospace market. Adjusted EBITDA margin, excluding special items, was down approximately 30 basis points year over year at 22.5% while passing through approximately $70 million of additional material costs year over year. Excluding material pass through costs, adjusted EBITDA margin excluding special items was 23.7% and year over year flow through of incremental revenue to Adjusted EBITDA excluding special items was strong at approximately 39%.

Howmet Aerospace Executive Chairman and Chief Executive Officer John Plant said, “The Howmet Aerospace team continued to execute well in the third quarter 2022. Net income performance has been solid since the middle of 2021. In fact, the third quarter 2022 marks the 5th consecutive quarter of year-over-year revenue, Adjusted EBITDA2, and Adjusted EPS2 growth. Adjusted EBITDA margin2 was healthy at 22.5%. Adjusted EPS2 matched the midpoint of guidance and grew 33% year over year. Although the commercial aerospace end market saw an uneven pace of recovery in the third quarter 2022, all of Howmet Aerospace’s aerospace-focused segments increased revenue sequentially.”

Mr. Plant continued, “Looking ahead, we continue to expect the commercial aerospace end market to grow at above-trend rates for the next several years. Howmet Aerospace’s defense aerospace market should also return to growth starting in the middle of 2023. We expect 2023 revenue growth versus 2022 to be up approximately 10%, plus or minus 2%.”

“Cash generation was positive as expected. However, starting in September, cash flows were impacted as Howmet Aerospace carried higher inventory due to customer schedule rebalances, which we expect to persist in the fourth quarter. We ended the quarter with $454 million of cash after repurchasing $100 million in common stock and paying a $0.02 per share dividend on common stock. The Company’s balance sheet remains strong, and Howmet Aerospace is positioned to continue generating strong cash flows ahead. The Company doubled the quarterly dividend on common stock to $0.04 per share for the fourth quarter 2022, demonstrating confidence in the Company’s healthy free cash flows.”

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.

Howmet Aerospace will hold its quarterly conference call at 10:00 AM Eastern Time on Monday, October 31, 2022. The call will be webcast via www.howmet.com.

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 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 provided 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 September 30, 2021, a net benefit related to prior year amended returns and audit settlements ($13), and a net charge for other small items $1;

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 quarter ended September 30, 2022, a benefit for other small items ($2);

for the nine months ended September 30, 2021, a net benefit related to prior year amended returns and audit settlements ($13), a charge related to a U.K. tax rate change $2, and a net charge for other small items $2; and

for the nine months ended September 30, 2022, a benefit to release a valuation allowance related to an interest carryforward tax attribute in the U.K. ($6) and an excess benefit for stock compensation ($5).

(2)

Plant fire costs, net for the quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2022 includes charges related to three fires including an incident that occurred at the Company's cast house in Barberton, Ohio in the third quarter of 2022.

(3)

Judgment from legal proceeding relates to the adverse ruling from the legal proceeding related to LBIE swaps that were entered into in 2007 and 2008, which were assumed as part of the Firth Rixson acquisition in 2014 and was recorded in Other expense (income), net in the Statement of Consolidated Operations.

(4)

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 September 30, 2022 include judgment from legal proceeding $65, costs related to fires at three plants $25, Restructuring and other charges $4, and costs associated with closures, shutdowns, and other items $1. Special items for the nine months ended September 30, 2022 include judgment from legal proceeding $65, costs related to fires at three plants $32, Restructuring and other charges $12, debt tender fees and related costs $2, and costs associated with closures, shutdowns, and other items $2, partially offset by reimbursement related to legal and advisory charges ($3). On July 30, 2022, the Company’s cast house in Barberton, Ohio, which produces aluminum ingot used in the production of wheels for the North American commercial transportation market, experienced a mechanical failure resulting in substantial heat and fire-related damage to equipment.

(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 September 30, 2022, a benefit for other small items ($2); and

for the nine months ended September 30, 2022, a benefit to release a valuation allowance related to an interest carryforward tax attribute in the U.K. ($6) and an excess benefit for stock compensation ($5).

Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA excluding Special items, and Adjusted EBITDA margin excluding Special items are non-GAAP financial measures. Management believes that these measures are meaningful to investors because they provide additional information with respect to the Company's operating performance and the Company’s ability to meet its financial obligations. The Adjusted EBITDA presented may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies. The Company's definition of 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.
