Allison Transmission beats expectations with higher profit

April 28, 2015

Allison Transmission Holdings Inc. on Monday reported a first-quarter profit that exceeded analyst expectations, but fell short of revenue predictions.

The Indianapolis-based manufacturer posted earnings of $68.4 million, or 38 cents per share, compared with $52.1 million, or 28 cents per share, in the same quarter of 2014.

Analysts were expecting earnings of 34 cents per share.

The transmission maker posted revenue of $503.6 million in the period, missing Wall Street expectations of $511.4 million. Sales were up from $493.6 million in the year-ago period.

Allison officials attributed the revenue increase to improving sales in the North America "On-Highway" end market.

Company shares were down 4 percent Tuesday at midday, to $30.79 each.
