Jean-Marc Germain, Constellium’s Chief Executive Officer said, “Constellium delivered solid results in the third quarter. Demand remained strong across our packaging and industrial end markets, while automotive demand continued to be hindered by the semiconductor shortage and aerospace demand remained subdued as expected. P&ARP matched the record Adjusted EBITDA of the second quarter supported by strong operational performance. A&T benefited from robust TID shipments and continued to demonstrate good cost control. AS&I also performed well with strong Industry shipments and solid cost control, which mitigated much of the weakness in automotive demand. Importantly, we continued to generate Free Cash Flow and further reduced our leverage in the third quarter."
"I want to commend the entire Constellium team for maintaining its focus especially in the face of continuing supply chain challenges and increasing inflationary pressures. This focus on execution leaves us well positioned to deliver long-term Adjusted EBITDA growth and meet our balance sheet leverage target. I remain confident in our trajectory and the substantial shareholder value creation opportunity in front of us," Mr. Germain continued.
Mr. Germain concluded, "We expect recent demand trends in our markets to continue through the remainder of 2021. Based on our current outlook, we now expect Adjusted EBITDA of €550 million to €560 million and Free Cash Flow in excess of €125 million in 2021.”
