  • Reported second quarter diluted EPS of $0.47 and an adjusted diluted EPS(2) of $0.60
  • Repurchased 927,987 shares of outstanding common stock, reducing net shares outstanding by approximately 1.8% during the first half of 2022
  • Reaffirmed full year 2022 sales, adjusted diluted EPS(2) and Free Cash Flow(3) outlook

Second Quarter 2022

TriMas reported second quarter 2022 net sales of $237.7 million, an increase of 8.5% compared to $219.0 million in second quarter 2021, primarily as a result of increased demand in TriMas' Specialty Products group and acquisition-related sales, partially offset by the impact of unfavorable currency exchange. The Company reported operating profit of $29.9 million in second quarter 2022, an increase of 16.8% compared to $25.6 million in second quarter 2021. Adjusting for Special Items(1) primarily related to realignment and acquisition-related diligence and transaction costs, second quarter 2022 adjusted operating profit was $32.1 million, an increase of 7.2% compared to $30.0 million in the prior year period, as the earnings on incremental sales more than offset the less favorable product sales mix, continuing inflationary pressure on input costs, including energy, freight and certain commodity costs, production inefficiencies from prolonged pandemic-related labor challenges and supply chain constraints.

The Company reported second quarter 2022 net income of $19.9 million, or $0.47 per diluted share, compared to $11.8 million, or $0.27 per diluted share, in second quarter 2021. Adjusting for Special Items(1), second quarter 2022 adjusted net income(2) was $21.8 million, a decrease compared to $22.7 million in second quarter 2021, as while the Company generated higher year-over-year adjusted operating profit, the tax rate in second quarter 2021 was lower due to tax planning initiatives. As a result, second quarter 2022 adjusted diluted earnings per share(2) was $0.60, as compared to $0.62 in the prior year period.

"During the second quarter, our team delivered sales growth of 8.5% and adjusted diluted EPS(2) of $0.60, in line with our expectations," said Thomas Amato, TriMas President and Chief Executive Officer. "Like many companies, TriMas was not immune to the impacts of production labor availability, supply challenges and inflationary effects, as well as an extremely dynamic demand environment. We continue to leverage the TriMas Business Model, remaining flexible and adjusting our capacity in our operations when demand for various product lines differs from our planning models.

"In addition, our operational and treasury actions have enabled TriMas to navigate well through this unprecedented market period, while continuing to gain traction against our long-range objectives. We continue to deploy capital in a balanced manner, as we invest in organic growth initiatives, pursue strategic bolt-on acquisitions and return capital to shareholders through share repurchases and dividends. We remain confident that TriMas’ diversified end market model, strong balance sheet and multiple levers for growth will provide long-term benefits to our shareholders," Amato concluded.

Financial Position

During second quarter 2022, the Company repurchased 645,984 shares of its outstanding common stock for $18.8 million, bringing the Company's total share repurchases for the first half of 2022 to 927,987 shares, or a net reduction of approximately 1.8% of outstanding shares. As of June 30, 2022, $114.7 million remained available under the Company's repurchase authorization. During second quarter 2022, TriMas also paid a quarterly cash dividend of $0.04 per share of TriMas Corporation stock on May 12, 2022.

TriMas ended second quarter 2022 with $348.1 million of unrestricted cash and aggregate availability under its revolving credit facility, $49.1 million of unrestricted cash on hand and a leverage ratio of 2.0x as defined in the Company's credit agreement. TriMas reported total debt of $394.3 million and Net Debt(4) of $345.2 million as of June 30, 2022.

The Company reported net cash provided by operating activities of $22.0 million for second quarter 2022, compared to $26.9 million in second quarter 2021. As a result, the Company reported Free Cash Flow(3) of $15.5 million for second quarter 2022 compared to $20.6 million in second quarter 2021, primarily due to proactive procurement actions. The Company continues to target 2022 Free Cash Flow(3) to be greater than 100% of net income. Please see Appendix I for further details.

Second Quarter Segment Results

TriMas' Packaging segment represents approximately 61% of TriMas June 30, 2022 LTM sales. Net sales for the second quarter increased 6.2%, including 3.4% of unfavorable currency exchange pressure, compared to the year ago period, as sales from our recent acquisitions and higher demand for closure products were partially offset by lower sales of dispenser-related product lines. During second quarter 2021, dispenser-related product line sales in beauty and personal care end markets benefited from strong customer demand believed to be related to the pandemic. Second quarter operating profit was relatively flat, while the related margin percentage decreased, as the impact of increased sales was moderated by higher energy costs, primarily in Europe, and other inflationary input costs.

TriMas' Aerospace segment represents approximately 21% of TriMas June 30, 2022 LTM sales. Net sales for the second quarter increased 6.4% compared to the year ago period, as the impact of increased aerospace production demand and acquisition-related sales more than offset the expected decline in special stocking orders, which were predominantly fulfilled in 2021. Second quarter operating profit and the related margin increased, as the fixed cost leverage on higher sales levels more than offset the impact of the 2021 high margin special stocking sales.

TriMas' Specialty Products segment represents approximately 18% of TriMas June 30, 2022 LTM sales. Second quarter net sales increased 20.5% compared to the year ago period, primarily due to higher demand for steel cylinders used in construction and HVAC applications, as well as increased sales of engines, compressors and replacement parts for stationary power generation units and applications for natural gas and crude oil extraction related to the higher oil-field activity in North America. Second quarter operating profit increased, while the related margin percentage decreased, as earnings generated on higher sales were partially offset by an increase in material costs.


The Company reaffirms its full year 2022 outlook originally provided on March 1, 2022. The Company expects to generate full year 2022 adjusted diluted earnings per share(2) in the range of $2.25 to $2.35, based on consolidated sales growth of 8% to 11% compared to 2021. In addition, the Company is targeting 2022 Free Cash Flow(3) to be greater than 100% of net income.

The above outlook includes the impact of all announced acquisitions, but excludes any additional future direct or indirect impacts that may result from additional supply or labor disruptions related to the COVID pandemic or other factors, and the geopolitical risks related to the ongoing conflict in Eastern Europe. All of the above amounts considered as 2022 guidance are after adjusting for any current or future amounts that may be considered Special Items, and in the case of adjusted diluted earnings per share, acquisition-related intangible asset amortization expense for deals that have not yet been consummated. The inability to predict the amount and timing of the impacts of these Special Items makes a detailed reconciliation of these forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures impracticable.(1)

Notice Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

Any "forward-looking" statements, within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, contained herein, including those relating to TriMas’ business, financial condition or future results, involve risks and uncertainties with respect to, including, but not limited to: the severity and duration of the ongoing coronavirus (“COVID-19”) pandemic on our operations, customers and suppliers, as well as related actions taken by governmental authorities and other third parties in response, each of which is uncertain, rapidly changing and difficult to predict; general economic and currency conditions; inflationary pressures on our supply chain, including raw material and energy costs, and customers; interest rate volatility; risks and uncertainties associated with intangible assets, including goodwill or other intangible asset impairment charges; competitive factors; future trends; our ability to realize our business strategies; our ability to identify attractive acquisition candidates, successfully integrate acquired operations or realize the intended benefits of such acquisitions; information technology and other cyber-related risks; the performance of our subcontractors and suppliers; supply constraints, including the availability and cost of raw materials; market demand; intellectual property factors; litigation; government and regulatory actions, including, without limitation, climate change legislation and other environmental regulations, as well as the impact of tariffs, quotas and surcharges; our leverage; liabilities imposed by our debt instruments; labor disputes and shortages; changes to fiscal and tax policies; contingent liabilities relating to acquisition activities; the disruption of operations from catastrophic or extraordinary events, including natural disasters and public health crises; the amount and timing of future dividends and/or share repurchases, which remain subject to Board approval and depend on market and other conditions; our future prospects; and other risks that are detailed in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2021. The risks described are not the only risks facing our Company. Additional risks and uncertainties not currently known to us or that we currently deemed to be immaterial also may materially adversely affect our business, financial position and results of operations or cash flows.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In this release, certain non-GAAP financial measures are used. Reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure may be found in Appendix I at the end of this release. Management believes that presenting these non-GAAP financial measures provides useful information to investors by helping them identify underlying trends in the Company’s businesses and facilitating comparisons of performance with prior and future periods and to the Company’s peers. These non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to, and not as a replacement for or superior to, the comparable GAAP measure, and may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies.

Reconciliations of forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures are provided only for the expected impact of amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets for completed acquisitions, as the Company is unable to provide estimates of future Special Items(1) or amortization from future acquisitions without unreasonable effort, due to the uncertainty and inherent difficulty of predicting the occurrence and the financial impact of such items impacting comparability and the periods in which such items may be recognized. For the same reasons, the Company is unable to address the probable significance of the unavailable information, which could be material to future results. 

Additional information is available at under the “Investors” section.

(1)     Appendix I details certain costs, expenses and other amounts or charges, collectively described as "Special Items," that are included in the determination of net income, earnings per share and/or cash flows from operating activities under GAAP, but that management believes should be separately considered when evaluating the quality of the Company’s core operating results, given they may not reflect the ongoing activities of the business.

(2)    The Company defines adjusted diluted earnings per share as net income (per GAAP), plus or minus the after-tax impact of Special Items(2), plus the after-tax impact of non-cash acquisition-related intangible asset amortization expense. While the acquisition-related intangible assets aid in the Company’s revenue generation, the Company adjusts for the non-cash amortization expense because the Company believes it (i) enhances management’s and investors’ ability to analyze underlying business performance, (ii) facilitates comparisons of financial results over multiple periods, and (iii) provides more relevant comparisons of financial results with the results of other companies as the amortization expense associated with these assets may fluctuate significantly from period to period based on the timing, size, nature, and number of acquisitions.

(3)      The Company defines Free Cash Flow as Net Cash Provided by/Used for Operating Activities, excluding the cash impact of Special Items, less Capital Expenditures. Please see Appendix I for additional details.   

(4)      The Company defines Net Debt as Total Debt less Cash and Cash Equivalents. Please see Appendix I for additional details.
