Management Discussion
  • Sales. Sales were $1,209 in the first quarter of 2021 compared to $1,634 in the first quarter of 2020. The decrease of $425, or 26%, in the first quarter of 2021 was primarily due to lower sales volumes in the commercial aerospace market driven by the impacts of COVID-19, and Boeing 737 MAX (“737 MAX”) and Boeing 787 production declines, partially offset by growth in the commercial transportation, defense aerospace and industrial gas turbine markets as well as favorable product pricing of $17.
  • Cost of goods sold (COGS). COGS as a percentage of Sales was 72.2% in the first quarter of 2021 compared to 72.4% in the first quarter of 2020. The decrease in the first quarter of 2021 was primarily due to net costs savings and favorable product pricing. Additionally, in 2020, the Company recorded total COGS charges of $11 related to fires that occurred at a Fastening Systems’ plant in France in 2019 and at a Forged Wheels plant in Barberton, Ohio in mid-February 2020. The Company recorded total COGS charges of $9 related to the fires at France and Barberton in 2021. The Company anticipates additional charges of approximately $3 to $7 in the second quarter of 2021, with further impacts in subsequent quarters as the businesses continue to recover from the fires.
  • Selling, general administrative, and other expenses (SG&A). SG&A expenses were $65 in the first quarter of 2021 compared to $79 in the first quarter of 2020. The decrease of $14, or 18%, in the first quarter of 2021 was primarily due to overhead cost reductions as well as costs incurred in the first quarter of 2020 associated with the Arconic Inc. Separation Transaction.
