Cummins Announces Second Quarter Results

Cummins Announces Second Quarter Results

Second quarter revenues of $6.2 billion increased 1 percent from the same quarter in 2018.

Cummins Inc. has reported results for the second quarter of 2019.

Second quarter revenues of $6.2 billion increased 1 percent from the same quarter in 2018. Increased truck production in North America and stronger demand in North American power generation markets was partially offset by lower demand in oil and gas and international truck markets. Currency negatively impacted revenues by 2 percent primarily due to a stronger U.S. dollar.

Second quarter sales in North America set a new record and improved by 7 percent while international revenues decreased by 6 percent. Sales in North America increased in all segments except Power Systems, which was negatively impacted by lower demand in oil and gas markets. International revenues declined primarily due to lower truck demand in China, Europe, Brazil, and India.

Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) in the second quarter were a record $1.1 billion, or 17 percent of sales, compared to $897 million or 14.6 percent of sales a year ago. Net income attributable to Cummins in the second quarter was $675 million ($4.27 per diluted share), compared to net income of $545 million ($3.32 per diluted share).

“We achieved record revenues, EBITDA, and operating cash flow in the first half of 2019, extending our track record of raising performance cycle over cycle,” said Chairman and CEO Tom Linebarger. “While we do expect to see a moderation in demand in the second half of the year, our financial strength combined with our diversified geographic and end market exposure will enable us to generate strong profits, continue to invest in future growth, and return cash to shareholders.”

2019 Outlook

Cummins now expects 2019 revenue to be flat, which places the forecast at the low end of its previous guidance range of flat to 4 percent. This lower outlook is driven by reduced truck demand in international markets, moderating parts demand in North America and the impact of a stronger U.S. dollar. The company continues to expect EBITDA to be in the range of 16.25 to 16.75 percent of sales and plans to return 75 percent of operating cash flow to shareholders in the form of dividends and share repurchases.
