Jean-Marc Germain, Constellium’s Chief Executive Officer said, “Constellium delivered record quarterly Adjusted EBITDA of €167 million in the second quarter. Our Aerospace and Transportation and Packaging and Automotive Rolled Products businesses maintained their momentum from the first quarter and each reported record quarterly Adjusted EBITDA, while Automotive Structures and Industry continued to experience incremental costs from new product launches and our footprint expansion. Based on our strong Free Cash Flow performance in the first half, we furthered our deleveraging by announcing in July the redemption of €100 million of our 2021 Senior Notes.”

Mr. Germain continued, “Based on our first half performance and our current outlook for 2019, we are increasing our Adjusted EBITDA guidance to 13% to 15% and our Free Cash Flow guidance to €125 million to €175 million. As a result, we now expect leverage to fall below 3.8x by the end of 2019. We remain focused on delivering on our long-term Adjusted EBITDA and leverage targets.”
