Jean-Marc Germain, Constellium’s Chief Executive Officer said, “Constellium delivered strong results in the third quarter. Adjusted EBITDA of €160 million is a third quarter record and includes record third quarter performances by both A&T and AS&I. Looking across our end markets, packaging demand continues to be resilient. Our shipments were down in the quarter due to operating challenges at our Muscle Shoals facility. Automotive shipments were up double digits in the quarter versus last year with new platform launches driving our growth, but we continue to be impacted by the semiconductor shortage and other supply chain challenges. In aerospace, demand is very strong with shipments up around 50% compared to last year for the second quarter in a row. While we are seeing signs of weakness across certain industrial markets, we like our end market positioning. Free Cash Flow in the third quarter was solid at €74 million.”

"Macroeconomic and geopolitical risks remain elevated and we expect significant inflationary pressures to continue, particularly for inputs like energy and in regions more directly affected by the ongoing war in Ukraine. The Constellium team has demonstrated its relentless focus on execution and cost control and I am confident in our ability to manage our business through these challenging times. We remain focused on executing our strategy, driving operational improvements, strengthening our margins, generating Free Cash Flow and increasing shareholder value,” Mr. Germain continued. Mr. Germain concluded, “We expect recent demand trends in our markets to continue through the remainder of 2022. Based on our current outlook, in 2022 we expect Adjusted EBITDA at the low end of our range of €670 million to €690 million and Free Cash Flow in excess of €170 million.”
