Allison Transmission Reports Q4, FY 2022 Results

The company reports record full-year net sales of $2,769 million, up 15% from 2021.

Allison Transmission Holdings has reported an 11 percent increase in fourth quarter net sales from the same period in 2021, leading to record full year net sales and diluted EPS, driven by the realization of growth initiatives and further improvement in operating performance.

David S. Graziosi, chairman and CEO of Allison Transmission, commented, “2022 was a record year for Allison as strong customer demand across our Global On-highway and Off-highway end markets resulted in record full year revenue. Net sales growth of 15 percent was surpassed by even stronger growth in net income, up 20 percent, and diluted EPS, up 34 percent.”

Graziosi continued, “Our prudent and well-defined approach to capital allocation once again had a meaningful impact on earnings per share. In 2022, we repurchased $279 million of our common stock, representing nearly 8 percent of outstanding shares. As a result of the execution of our growth initiatives, we are guiding to another record revenue year for 2023 as we continue to increase our penetration and expand our addressable markets.”

Full Year and Fourth Quarter Financial Highlights

Net sales for the year were $2,769 million. Annual results were led by:
