• Consolidated revenues of $4.6 billion, (up 13.4% compared to Q1 2021 for continuing operations)
  • Net income of $336 million, Adjusted Net Income of $378 million, with adjusted diluted EPS of $0.28, and Adjusted EBIT of Industrial Activities of $429 million (up $36 million compared to Q1 2021).
  • Seasonal free cash flow absorption of $1,059 million (Industrial Activities) amid continued supply chain disruptions.

In our first quarter as a pure play agricultural and construction equipment business, the CNH Industrial team delivered a solid performance that demonstrates the potential of a focused, customer-centric company. With redoubled commitment to customer- inspired innovation, diligent operational execution, and improved product quality spurring margin expansion, we delivered net sales of Industrial Activities of nearly $4.2 billion, up 15% from last year on a constant currency basis. Alongside favorable product mix, this resulted in adjusted gross margin of 22.2%, up 60 basis points from Q1 2021 and adjusted EBIT of industrial activities increased by more than 9% to $429M. Order books remain exceptionally strong, up almost 40% in agriculture and 80% in construction, as demand remained healthy. Our thoughts are with our employees, customers, and dealers directly impacted by the war in Ukraine. We are all affected by the associated higher grain prices, potential food shortages, and rising energy costs. Despite these mostly unhelpful macro forces, we are maintaining our original 2022 guidance. We did not plan for positive cash flow in the first quarter, and as critical supply chain disruptions constrained our ability to ship finished goods, we ended the quarter with a cash outflow of $1.1 billion. Logistics pressures and semiconductor shortages, which are not unique to CNH Industrial, are expected to remain a headwind through the year, but I am confident in our team’s ability to navigate the current environment as evidenced by our results during the first quarter. With a robust slate of new products to be introduced, strong early returns from the Raven acquisition and our other Precision efforts, and a dedicated, tested leadership team ready to execute our ambitious plans, CNH Industrial is positioned to deliver on our strategic priorities and our short-term objectives.” — Scott W. Wine, Chief Executive Officer

Net sales of Industrial Activities of $4,180 million, up 13% mainly due to favorable price realization. Adjusted EBIT of Industrial Activities of $429 million ($393 million in Q1 2021), with both segments up year over year. Agriculture adjusted EBIT margin above 12% and Construction at 4%.

Adjusted net income of $378 million, with adjusted diluted earnings per share of $0.28 (adjusted net income of $352 million in Q1 2021, with adjusted diluted earnings per share of $0.26). Adjusted net income in March 2022 excludes, among other items, $71 million related to asset write-downs, financial receivable allowances and valuation allowances on deferred tax assets as a result of the suspension of operations in Russia.

Adjusted gross profit margin of Industrial Activities of 22.2%, up 0.6% from Q1 2021 primarily due to better mix and favorable price realization in Agriculture. Reported income tax expense of $159 million and adjusted income tax expense(1) of $138 million, with adjusted effective tax rate (adjusted ETR(1)) of 28%, which reflects jurisdictional mix of pre-tax results and net discrete tax charges.

Free cashflow of Industrial Activities was negative $1.1 billion as a result of higher than historical seasonal working capital cash absorption primarily due to supply chain disruptions. Total Debt of $21.3 billion at March 31, 2022 ($20.9 billion at December 31, 2021).

In North America, industry volume for tractor was down 8% for under 140 HP, and up 9% for over 140 HP; combines were down 22%. In Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA), tractor and combine demand was down 8% and up 6%, respectively. South America tractor demand was up 11% and combine demand was down 9%. Asia Pacific tractor demand was down 14% and combine demand was up 10%.

Net sales were up 11%, mainly due to favorable price realization and better mix, mostly driven by the North America and South America regions. Gross profit margin was 24.1%, up 0.8% compared to Q1 2021, mainly due to better mix, favorable price realization, and favorable manufacturing absorption primarily in North America and South America, partially offset by supply chain disruption costs in all regions.

Adjusted EBIT was $426 million ($399 million for Q1 2021), with Adjusted EBIT margin at 12.6% with the $27 million increase driven by higher gross margin, partially offset by higher labor cost, SG&A and R&D expenses.

Order book in Agriculture was up almost 40% year over year for both tractors and combines, driven by strong growth in North America and EMEA for tractors, and in South America and EMEA for combines.

Global industry volume for construction equipment decreased in both Heavy and Light sub-segments, with Heavy down 20% and Light down 14%, mostly driven by a 33% decrease in Light and Heavy equipment demand for Asia Pacific, particularly in China. Demand increased 4% in North America, 9% in EMEA and 30% in South America.

Net sales were up 22%, as a result of positive volumes due to higher industry demand in CNH Industrial's main markets, market share growth, and better price realization primarily in North America and South America.

Gross profit margin was 13.3%, down 1.0.% compared to Q1 2021, mainly due to supply chain disruption costs, primarily raw materials, partially offset by better mix and favorable price realization, in all regions.

Adjusted EBIT increased $7 million due to favorable volume and mix and positive price realization, partially offset by higher purchasing costs. Adjusted EBIT margin at 4.0%.

Construction order book up more that 80% year over year in both Heavy and Light sub-segments, with increases in all regions.

Revenues were up 17% due to higher used equipment sales, higher base rates in South America and higher average portfolios in South America and EMEA, partially offset by lower retail yields in North America.

Net income increased $4 million to $82 million, primarily as a result of higher recoveries on used equipment sales in North America, higher base rates in South America, and higher average portfolios in South America and EMEA, offset by additional risk costs due to the Eastern Europe situation, including

$15 million for domestic Russian receivables which are considered an adjusting item for consolidated adjusted net income.

The managed portfolio (including unconsolidated joint ventures) was $20.8 billion at the end of the quarter (of which retail was 73% and wholesale was 27%), up $1.3 billion compared to March 31, 2021 (up $1.0 billion on a constant currency basis).

The receivable balance greater than 30 days past due as a percentage of receivables was 1.3% (1.4% as of March 31, 2021).
