COLUMBUS — Cummins Inc. (NYSE: CMI) today reported results for the second quarter of 2022.

Second quarter revenues of $6.6 billion increased 8 percent from the same quarter in 2021. Sales in North America increased 15 percent while international revenues decreased 2 percent, driven primarily by a slowdown in China and the indefinite suspension of our operations in Russia.

“The company achieved record revenues and solid profitability in the second quarter of 2022, with demand for our products remaining strong across most of our key markets and regions, apart from China,” said President and CEO Jennifer Rumsey. “Employees across our organization have worked tirelessly in the face of supply chain challenges and rising costs that continue to impact our industry. While navigating these challenges, we will continue to focus on enabling our customers’ success, driving cycle over cycle improvement in financial performance, investing in sustainable solutions that will protect our planet for future generations and returning excess cash to shareholders.”

Net income attributable to Cummins in the second quarter was $702 million ($4.94 per diluted share) compared to $600 million ($4.10 per diluted share) in 2021.

Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) in the second quarter were $1.1 billion (16.0 percent of sales), compared to $974 million (15.9 percent of sales) a year ago. Second quarter results include costs of $29 million ($0.16 per diluted share) related to the separation of the Filtration business, and a $47 million benefit ($0.33 per diluted share) from adjusting the reserves related to the indefinite suspension of our operations in Russia. We also experienced $48 million ($0.34 per diluted share) of mark to market losses on investments that underpin our unqualified benefit plans in the second quarter, which compares to gains of $20 million a year ago. The tax rate in the second quarter was 17.3 percent including $36 million, or $0.25 per diluted share, of favorable discrete items.
