Management Discussion
  • Sales. Sales were $3,209 in the first quarter of 2020 compared to $3,541 in the first quarter of 2019. The decrease of $332, or 9%, in the first quarter of 2020, was primarily due to lower volumes in the commercial transportation, automotive, and aerospace end markets driven by COVID-19 and 737 MAX production declines; a decrease in sales of $66 from the divestitures of the hard alloy extrusions plant in South Korea (March 2020), the aluminum rolling mill in Itapissuma, Brazil ( February 2020), and the forgings business in the United Kingdom (December 2019); and lower aluminum prices, partially offset by favorable product mix and higher volumes in the industrial end market.
  • Cost of goods sold ("COGS"). COGS as a percentage of Sales was 77.2% in the first quarter of 2020 compared to 79.6% in the first quarter of 2019. The decrease in the first quarter of 2020 was primarily due to net cost savings and lower aluminum prices, partially offset by lower volumes, impairment costs related to facilities closures of $3, and costs related to fires at two plants of
  • $11. The Company anticipates charges of approximately $10 to $15 in the second quarter of 2020, with additional impacts in subsequent quarters as the businesses continue to recover from the fires. The Company has insurance with a deductible of $10 for each plant.
