The company, which reported net sales of $1.44 billion, says it is focusing on managing factors within its control, while experiencing unprecedented supply chain volatility.

First Quarter 2022 Results

  • Net cash provided by operating activities of $68.5 million; Adjusted free cash flow of $53.9 million

“AAM’s first quarter financial results reflect our focus on managing factors under our control and delivering cash flow conversion,” said AAM’s Chairman and CEO, David C. Dauch. “The industry is experiencing unprecedented supply chain volatility stemming from multiple global challenges, but we continue to position AAM for long-term growth and invest in electrification. Our efforts recently resulted in AAM being named an Automotive News PACE and PACEpilot award finalist for our electric drive technology.”

AAM’s sales in the first quarter of 2022 were $1.44 billion as compared to $1.43 billion in the first quarter of 2021. The company estimates, on a year-over-year basis, sales for the first quarter of 2022 were unfavorably impacted by the semiconductor chip shortage that is affecting the automotive industry by approximately $31 million. Commodity cost (metal market) pass-throughs to customers and foreign exchange added approximately $39 million to the quarter.

AAM’s net income in the first quarter of 2022 was $1 million, or $0.01 per share, as compared to $38.6 million, or $0.33 per share in the first quarter of 2021.

AAM is targeting sales in the range of $5.6 billion – $5.8 billion

AAM is targeting Adjusted EBITDA in the range of $785 million – $830 million

AAM is targeting Adjusted free cash flow in the range of $300 million – $350 million; this target assumes capital spending of approximately 3.5% – 4.0% of sales
