Allison Transmission Announces an 11 Percent Increase to the Quarterly Dividend, a $1 Billion Increase to the Stock Repurchase Authorization and the Annual Stockholders Meeting and Record Date


Allison Transmission Holdings Inc. (NYSE: ALSN), a leading designer and manufacturer of conventional and electrified vehicle propulsion solutions and the largest global manufacturer of medium- and heavy-duty fully automatic transmissions for commercial and defense vehicles, announced today that its Board of Directors has approved an increase in the Company's quarterly dividend from $0.19 to $0.21 per share on the Company's common stock and has declared a cash dividend of $0.21 per share on the Company's common stock for the first quarter of 2022. Payment will be made on March 18, to stockholders of record at the close of business on March 7.

"For the third consecutive year, Allison's Board of Directors has approved an increase to the quarterly dividend, demonstrating once again our unwavering commitment to prudent balance sheet management and capital allocation," said Fred Bohley, Senior Vice President, Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer at Allison. "The consistent return of capital to shareholders, while simultaneously investing across the organization, is supported by Allison's strong financial performance, as well as our disciplined and well-defined approach to the capital structure."

The payment of any future dividends will be at the discretion of the Board of Directors and will be dependent upon Allison Transmission's financial position, results of operations, available cash, cash flow, capital requirements and other factors deemed relevant by the Board of Directors.

The Company also announced that its Board of Directors has approved a new authorization under the Company's current stock repurchase program for the repurchase of up to an additional $1 billion. The new authorization brings the total amount authorized under the program to $4 billion.

Repurchases under the program may be made in the open market, in privately negotiated transactions or otherwise, with the amount and timing of repurchases depending on market conditions and corporate needs. Open market repurchases will be structured to occur within the pricing and volume requirements of Rule 10b-18. The Company may also, from time to time, enter into Rule 10b5-1 plans to facilitate repurchases of its shares under this authorization. This stock repurchase program does not obligate the Company to acquire any particular amount of its common stock and the program may be extended, modified, suspended or discontinued at any time at the Company's discretion.

Finally, the Company also announced today that its 2022 annual meeting of stockholders will be held on May 4. The record date for the meeting will be March 7.
