CNH Industrial 2021 Fourth Quarter and Full Year Results
CNH Industrial reported Q4 adjusted EPS of 25c versus the consensus estimate of 20c. The company reported Q4 revenue of $9.07B versus the consensus estimate of $4.37B.
“I am proud of, and profusely thankful for, how our CNH Industrial team managed through a difficult year. Between external challenges: COVID, supply chain, etc. and internal opportunities: spin, Raven acquisition and integration, and our customer focused reorganization, they rose to every occasion while still exemplifying our renewed focus on delivering for our customers and dealers. Their efforts drove Company record revenue and earnings per share, and it is especially rewarding to generate such results in our final year as a combined entity. This performance represents a solid foundation for both Iveco Group and CNH Industrial’s future success, particularly as it includes our second consecutive year of net cash, with over $1.7 billion of positive free cash flow of Industrial Activities for 2021. In Q4 we outperformed expectations by managing our supply chain, specifically microchip shortages, better than anticipated, and while these pressures are likely to persist, so is our team’s demonstrated ability to overcome them. With continued strength in our end markets and order books, and a comprehensive strategy for the future, CNH Industrial is excited to enter 2022 as a pure play in agricultural and construction equipment,” said CEO Scott Wine.
