Second quarter results include $29 million ($0.16 per diluted share) of costs related to the separation of the Filtration business, and benefit of $47 million ($0.33 per diluted share) from adjusting the reserves related to the suspension of our operations in Russia. 

The company is maintaining its full year 2022 guidance, expecting revenue to be up 8 percent and EBITDA of approximately 15.5 percent.

Cummins Inc. (NYSE: CMI) today reported results for the second quarter of 2022.

Second quarter revenues of $6.6 billion increased 8 percent from the same quarter in 2021. Sales in North America increased 15 percent while international revenues decreased 2 percent, driven primarily by a slowdown in China and the indefinite suspension of our operations in Russia. 

“The company achieved record revenues and solid profitability in the second quarter of 2022, with demand for our products remaining strong across most of our key markets and regions, apart from China,” said President and CEO Jennifer Rumsey. “Employees across our organization have worked tirelessly in the face of supply chain challenges and rising costs that continue to impact our industry. While navigating these challenges, we will continue to focus on enabling our customers’ success, driving cycle over cycle improvement in financial performance, investing in sustainable solutions that will protect our planet for future generations and returning excess cash to shareholders.”

Net income attributable to Cummins in the second quarter was $702 million ($4.94 per diluted share) compared to $600 million ($4.10 per diluted share) in 2021.

Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) in the second quarter were $1.1 billion (16.0 percent of sales), compared to $974 million (15.9 percent of sales) a year ago.  Second quarter results include costs of $29 million ($0.16 per diluted share) related to the separation of the Filtration business, and a $47 million benefit ($0.33 per diluted share) from adjusting the reserves related to the indefinite suspension of our operations in Russia. We also experienced $48 million ($0.34 per diluted share) of mark to market losses on investments that underpin our unqualified benefit plans in the second quarter, which compares to gains of $20 million a year ago.  The tax rate in the second quarter was 17.3 percent including $36 million, or $0.25 per diluted share, of favorable discrete items.

2022 Outlook:

Based on the current forecast, Cummins is maintaining its full year 2022 guidance, expecting revenue to be up 8 percent and EBITDA of approximately 15.5 percent. The company plans to return approximately 50 percent of Operating Cash Flow to shareholders in the form of dividends and share repurchases. 

Any expenses outside of the normal course of business associated with the separation of the Filtration business, the pending acquisition of Meritor, or indefinite suspension of our operations in Russia have been excluded from the outlook provided. 

“High inflation and rising global interest rates have increased uncertainty about the pace of growth in the global economy.  Demand for Cummins’ products and services remains strong, and as a result we have maintained our projection for full year revenues and profitability from three months ago,” said Rumsey. “We continue to monitor economic conditions closely and will adjust our operating plans should the outlook for our core markets weaken.”

Second Quarter 2022 Highlights:

  • The company achieved significant milestones related to two previously announced acquisitions, Jacobs Vehicle Systems (JVS) and Meritor. In April 2022, Cummins completed the acquisition of JVS, adding engine braking and cylinder deactivation technologies which are key components to meeting current and future emissions regulations. On May 26th, Meritor’s shareholders voted in favor of the Cummins acquisition bid, further validating the potential of what Cummins and Meritor can achieve together. The companies are working together to complete the acquisition this week as we have received all regulatory approvals to close the transaction. 
  • The company announced several collaborations that further enable our customers to achieve their decarbonization goals. During the second quarter, Cummins announced collaborations with Daimler Truck North America and Scania to deliver fuel cell electric powertrains for heavy-duty truck applications, and with Komatsu on the development of zero-emissions haulage equipment, including hydrogen fuel cell solutions for large mining haul truck applications. Cummins, Chevron, and Walmart are also working together to integrate Cummins X15N natural gas engine, powered by renewable natural gas, into Walmart’s heavy-duty truck fleet.
  • We continue to make progress on the planned separation of the Filtration business.
  • Cummins was ranked No. 4 on Forbes 2022 list of the Best Employers for Diversity, its highest ranking ever on that particular list, and named to 3BL Media’s list of the 100 Best Corporate Citizens. In addition, the company posted its first Human Capital Management report detailing the ways the company strives to create a dynamic work environment, and published its 19th consecutive Sustainability Progress Report.
  • In July, the company announced Jennifer Rumsey, Cummins President & Chief Operating Officer, would assume the role of Chief Executive Officer, effective August 1, 2022. She is the seventh CEO, and first female, in the company’s history. Tom Linebarger, Cummins long-standing CEO, assumed the role of Executive Chairman, which includes continuing to serve as Chairman on the Board of Directors and taking on select executive responsibilities, such as the pending acquisition of Meritor.

Second quarter 2022 detail (all comparisons to same period in 2021):

The Engine, Distribution, Components and Power Systems results were all impacted by adjustments to the reserves related to the indefinite suspension of our operations in Russia.

Engine Segment

  • Sales - $2.8 billion, up 11 percent
  • Segment EBITDA - $422 million, or 15.2 percent of sales, compared to $402 million or 16.1 percent of sales.  EBITDA includes $1 million of additional costs related to the indefinite suspension of our operations in Russia.
  • On-highway revenues increased 16 percent driven by pricing actions and strong demand in the North American truck markets, strong aftermarket demand and recovery in the bus market which was severely impacted by Covid-19 in the previous year. Off-highway revenues decreased 8 percent driven by a slowdown in China construction. 
  • Sales increased 15 percent in North America and 1 percent in international markets, with higher demand in Western Europe offset by a decline in China. 

Distribution Segment

  • Sales - $2.3 billion, up 17 percent
  • Segment EBITDA - $297 million, or 13.2 percent of sales, compared to $201 million or 10.5 percent of sales.  EBITDA includes $45 million of benefits from adjusting the reserves related to the indefinite suspension of our operations in Russia.
  • Revenues in North America increased 21 percent and international sales increased by 10 percent
  • Higher revenues were primarily driven by increased demand for parts and service. 

Components Segment

  • Sales - $2.0 billion, down 2 percent
  • Segment EBITDA - $352 million, or 18.1 percent of sales, compared to $301 million or 15.1 percent of sales. EBITDA includes $2 million of benefits from adjusting the reserves related to the indefinite suspension of our operations in Russia.
  • Revenues in North America increased by 13 percent and international sales decreased by 19 percent due to lower demand in China from a high base in 2021.

Power Systems Segment

  • Sales - $1.2 billion, up 5 percent 
  • Segment EBITDA - $128 million, or 10.6 percent of sales, compared to $139 million, or 12.2 percent of sales. EBITDA includes $1 million of benefits from adjusting the reserves related to the indefinite suspension of our operations in Russia.
  • Power generation revenues were flat. Industrial revenues increased 7 percent due to stronger demand in mining and oil and gas markets for both engine systems and aftermarket products. Demand for alternators increased 33 percent due to supply chain constraints on external customers. 

New Power Segment

  • Sales - $42 million, up 75 percent
  • Segment EBITDA loss - $80 million
  • Revenues increased due to higher battery demand in the North American school bus market. 
  • Costs associated with the development of fuel cells and electrolyzers as well as products to support battery electric vehicles are contributing to EBITDA losses.


Presentation of Non-GAAP Financial Information
EBITDA is a non-GAAP measure used in this release and is defined and reconciled to what management believes to be the most comparable GAAP measure in a schedule attached to this release, except for forward-looking measures of EBITDA where a reconciliation to the corresponding GAAP measures is not available due to the variability, complexity and limited visibility of the non-cash items that are excluded from the non-GAAP outlook measure. Cummins presents this information as it believes it is useful to understanding the Company's operating performance, and because EBITDA is a measure used internally to assess the performance of the operating units.
