AKRON, Ohio, May 6, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company (NASDAQ: GT) today reported results for the first quarter of 2022.

"We delivered our highest first quarter revenue in 10 years despite ongoing supply chain disruptions, impacts from geopolitical issues in Europe and increasing COVID-19 restrictions in China," said Richard J. Kramer, chairman, chief executive officer and president.

"Moreover, with the addition of Cooper Tire and the benefit of strong pricing actions across our key markets, our merger-adjusted segment operating income grew nearly 40%. I am extremely proud of our teams who continue to deliver excellent results in the face of new challenges."

Goodyear's first quarter 2022 sales were $4.9 billion, up 40% from a year ago. The increase was driven by the Cooper Tire merger, improvements in price/mix, higher volume, and increased sales from other tire-related businesses.

Tire unit volumes totaled 45.0 million, up 29% from the prior year's period. Replacement and original equipment tire unit volume increased 35% and 9%, respectively, reflecting the addition of Cooper Tire unit volume and market share gains.

Goodyear's first quarter 2022 net income was $96 million (33 cents per share) compared to net income of $12 million (5 cents per share) a year ago. There were several significant items in the period, including, on a pre-tax basis, rationalization charges of $11 million. First quarter 2022 adjusted net income was $105 million compared to adjusted net income of $102 million in the prior year's quarter. Adjusted earnings per share were $0.37, compared to $0.43 in the prior year's quarter, driven by increased taxes and interest expense. Per share amounts are diluted.

The company reported segment operating income of $303 million in the first quarter of 2022, up $77 million from a year ago. The company also reported merger-adjusted segment operating income of $311 million, which excludes incremental amortization of Cooper Tire intangible assets. The increase in segment operating income primarily reflects improvements in price/mix, the Cooper Tire merger and impacts of higher volume, including increased factory utilization. These factors were partially offset by higher raw material costs and inflationary cost pressures in transportation, wages, benefits and energy.

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

See the note at the end of this release for further explanation and reconciliation tables for Total Segment Operating Income and Margin; Merger-Adjusted Segment Operating Income and Margin; Adjusted Net Income; and Adjusted Diluted Earnings per Share, reflecting the impact of certain significant items on the 2022 and 2021 periods.

Americas' first quarter 2022 sales of $2.9 billion were 63% higher than in 2021, driven by the Cooper Tire merger, improvements in price/mix, and increased sales from other tire-related businesses. Tire unit volume increased 44%. Replacement tire unit volume increased 55%. Original equipment unit volume increased almost 5% despite ongoing customer supply chain challenges, driven by the addition of Cooper Tire's units.

First quarter 2022 segment operating income of $216 million was up $102 million from the prior year's quarter. The increase was driven by improvements in price/mix and the Cooper Tire merger. These factors were partially offset by higher raw material costs and inflationary cost pressures in wages, benefits and transportation.

Tire unit volume increased 14%. Replacement tire unit volume rose 22%. Original equipment unit volume decreased 9%, reflecting lower vehicle production.

First quarter 2022 segment operating income of $59 million was down $15 million from the prior year's quarter, driven by higher raw material costs, inflationary cost pressures in energy, wages, benefits and transportation, and adverse foreign exchange. These factors were partially offset by improvements in price/mix and the impact of higher volume.

First quarter 2022 segment operating income of $28 million was down $10 million from the prior year's quarter, driven by higher raw material costs, partly offset by improvements in price/mix, the Cooper Tire merger and higher volume.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures (unaudited)

This earnings release presents Total Segment Operating Income and Margin, Merger-Adjusted Segment Operating Income and Margin, Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Diluted Earnings Per Share (EPS), which are important financial measures for the company but are not financial measures defined by U.S. GAAP, and should not be construed as alternatives to corresponding financial measures presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP.

Total Segment Operating Income is the sum of the individual strategic business units' (SBUs') Segment Operating Income as determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Total Segment Operating Margin is Total Segment Operating Income divided by Net Sales as determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Management believes that Total Segment Operating Income and Margin are useful because they represent the aggregate value of income created by the company's SBUs and exclude items not directly related to the SBUs for performance evaluation purposes. The most directly comparable U.S. GAAP financial measure to Total Segment Operating Income is Goodyear Net Income and to Total Segment Operating Margin is Return on Sales (which is calculated by dividing Goodyear Net Income by Net Sales).

Merger-Adjusted Segment Operating Income is Total Segment Operating Income less the impact of the amortization of inventory step-up adjustments, the incremental amortization of intangible assets and other transaction-related items related to the Cooper Tire merger. Merger-Adjusted Segment Operating Margin is Merger-Adjusted Segment Operating Income divided by Net Sales as determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Management believes that Merger-Adjusted Segment Operating Income and Margin are useful because they allow investors to understand and evaluate the aggregate value of income created by the company's SBUs in a manner that is more comparable to the performance of The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company and Cooper Tire & Rubber Company in the periods before the merger by adjusting for certain expenses related to the Cooper Tire merger, including amortization of the Cooper Tire inventory step-up adjustments, incremental amortization of Cooper Tire intangible assets and other transaction-related items.

Adjusted Net Income is Goodyear Net Income as determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP adjusted for certain significant items. Adjusted Diluted Earnings Per Share is the company's Adjusted Net Income divided by Weighted Average Shares Outstanding-Diluted as determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Management believes that Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Diluted Earnings Per Share are useful because they represent how management reviews the operating results of the company excluding the impacts of non-cash impairment charges, rationalizations, asset write-offs, accelerated depreciation, asset sales and certain other significant items.

It should be noted that other companies may calculate similarly titled non-GAAP financial measures differently and, as a result, the measures presented herein may not be comparable to such similarly titled measures reported by other companies.

See the tables below for reconciliations of historical Total Segment Operating Income and Margin, Merger-Adjusted Segment Operating Income and Margin, Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Diluted Earnings Per Share to the most directly comparable U.S. GAAP financial measures.
