Cummins Clocks 33% Sales Growth In Q4 As International Revenue Sees Slight Slowdown

  • Adjusted EPS of $4.52 missed the consensus of $4.56.
  • Sales in North America increased by 25% and international decreased by 1%, as strong demand across all global markets was offset by a market slowdown in China, and Russia, where it indefinitely suspended operations.

"We expect revenue growth and margin expansion in our core business and strong growth in our New Power segment in 2023."
