2022 Outlook

The company provides guidance on an adjusted (non-GAAP) basis because it is not possible to predict or provide a reconciliation reflecting the impact of future pension adjustments or other unanticipated events, which would be included in reported (GAAP) results and could be material.

For the full year 2022, the company reaffirms its consolidated financial targets of revenue of around $102 billion, an adjusted operating margin of about 13.7% and adjusted return on invested capital above 30%.

For the year, the company now expects capital expenditures to be around $5.0 billion. Dividend payments are expected to be around $5.2 billion, subject to Board approval, and share repurchases are projected to be at least $3.0 billion.

* “Adjusted” amounts are non-GAAP financial measures. See the appendix to this release for a discussion of non-GAAP financial measures, including a reconciliation to the most closely correlated GAAP measure.
