Management Discussion
  • Sales. Sales for 2019 were $14,192 compared with $14,014 in 2018, an increase of $178, or 1%. The increase was primarily due to volume growth in the aerospace, packaging, commercial transportation, and industrial end markets; favorable product pricing and mix in the GRP segment; and favorable product pricing in the EP&F segment when fulfilling volume above contractual share, renewing contracts, and selling non-contractual spot business; partially offset by lower aluminum prices; lower sales of $216 from the completed ramp down of Arconic's North American packaging operations (in December 2018) and the divestitures of forgings businesses in the United Kingdom (divested in December 2019) and Hungary (divested in December 2018), and the Latin America extrusions business (divested in April 2018); and unfavorable foreign currency movements.
