However, the company expanded its adjusted EBIT margins to 19 per cent and adjusted EBITDA margins to 24 per cent.

Owens Corning reported $9.7 billion in sales in FY23, a slight decline from last year but improved EBIT margins to 19 per cent and EBITDA to 24 per cent.
Diluted EPS at $13.14, adjusted at $14.42.
The company’s composites segment saw a 14 per cent sales drop in FY23, with EBIT down to $242 million due to lower demand and inventory adjustments.

The composites segment of Owens Corning experienced a 14 per cent decrease in net sales, totalling $2.3 billion for the year. This decline was primarily attributed to lower volumes and the net impact of divestitures and acquisitions. Despite these challenges, the segment achieved EBIT margins of 11 per cent and EBITDA margins of 18 per cent. The decrease in EBIT by $256 million to $242 million was driven by reduced demand, particularly in glass reinforcements, and production downtime actions taken to balance inventories throughout the year, the company said in a press release.

“The results for the full year demonstrate the strength of our team, the value of our products, and the impact of our enterprise strategy to increase the earnings power of the company and create value for our customers,” said chair and chief executive officer Brian Chambers.
