Constellium Reports First Quarter 2024 Results


Constellium SE (NYSE: CSTM) ("Constellium" or the "Company") today reported results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2024.

As a reminder of the press release issued on February 21, 2024 and following the SEC comment letter review process, Constellium will no longer report Value-Added Revenue (VAR), a Non-GAAP financial measure. In addition, the Company has revised its definition of consolidated Adjusted EBITDA, a Non-GAAP financial measure, to no longer exclude the non-cash impact of metal price lag from its consolidated Adjusted EBITDA. Constellium will continue to exclude the non-cash impact of metal price lag from its Segment Adjusted EBITDA, which it uses for evaluating the performance of its operating segments. Following the revision of its definition, consolidated Adjusted EBITDA, less the non-cash impact of metal price lag, is equal to consolidated Adjusted EBITDA prior to the revision of its definition. Constellium will continue to provide its investors and other stakeholders with the necessary information to explain the non-cash impact of metal price lag on its reported results. 

First quarter 2024 highlights:

  • Shipments of 380 thousand metric tons, down 2% compared to Q1 2023
  • Revenue of €1.7 billion, down 12% compared to Q1 2023
  • Net income of €17 million compared to net income of €22 million in Q1 2023
  • Adjusted EBITDA of €137 million
    • Includes non-cash metal price lag impact of €(13) million
  • Segment Adjusted EBITDA of €43 million at P&ARP, €80 million at A&T, €33 million at AS&I, and €(6) million at H&C 
  • Cash from Operations of €54 million and Free Cash Flow of €(8) million
  • Repurchased 330 thousand shares of the Company stock for $6.9 million
  • Leverage of 2.4x at March 31, 2024

Jean-Marc Germain, Constellium’s Chief Executive Officer said, “Our team delivered solid first quarter results despite a mixed end market demand environment and significant weather-related impacts in the quarter at our facility in Muscle Shoals. A&T delivered record first quarter Segment Adjusted EBITDA with continued strength in aerospace. Packaging shipments, and can sheet specifically, were up in the quarter. Automotive demand remained healthy in the quarter in North America with softer demand continuing in Europe. We continued to experience weakness in most industrial markets. Free Cash Flow was in line with our expectations at negative €8 million and we ended the quarter with leverage at 2.4x, within our target leverage range of 1.5x to 2.5x. In addition, I am pleased to report that we launched our share repurchase program in March and repurchased 330 thousand shares for $6.9 million.” 

Mr. Germain concluded, "As expected, we are continuing to face uncertainties on the macroeconomic and geopolitical fronts, though we like our end market positioning and we remain optimistic about our prospects for this year and beyond. Based on our current outlook, we are maintaining our prior guidance and expect to achieve Adjusted EBITDA, excluding the non-cash impact of metal price lag, in the range of €740 million to €770 million and Free Cash Flow in excess of €130 million in 2024. Beyond this year, we remain confident in our ability to deliver on our Adjusted EBITDA target, excluding the non-cash impact of metal price lag, of over €800 million in 2025. Our focus remains on executing our strategy and increasing shareholder value.”
