“Second quarter 2022 results demonstrate strong year-over-year performance. Net sales growth of 10% was once again outpaced by diluted earnings per share growth of 25%,” said Allison Chairman and CEO David Graziosi said in a statement, “Returns per share above net sales and net income growth are driven by Allison’s disciplined and well-defined approach to asset allocation. Despite a challenging environment, the Allison team continues to deliver balanced execution, while driving multi-year growth initiatives in all of our end markets.

Adjusted free cash flow for the quarter was $36 million, down $59 million from $95 million for the same period in 2021. The decrease reflects lower net cash from operating activities, partially offset by lower capital expenditures.

In North America, its largest market, on-road revenue increased to $340 million in the second quarter from $302 million a year earlier, reflecting continued strength in customer demand for delivery of the latest kilometer, regional transport and specialized trucks, depending on the company. Off-road revenue reached $20 million compared to $9 million a year earlier. Defense revenue fell to $29 million from $48 million a year earlier.

On-road revenue from outside North America was $105 million, compared to $98 million a year earlier. Off-road revenue was $32 million compared to $18 million.

During the quarter, its spare parts, support equipment and other segments increased revenue to $138 million, from $128 million in the 2021 period.

For the six-month period, Allison reported net income of $251 million, $2.56, on revenue of $1.3 billion, compared to net income of $230 million, $2.07, on revenues of $1.1 billion a year earlier.

Allison reported record non-North American on-road end-market revenue for the first half of the year.
