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 2022, UPS reaffirms its full-year financial targets:

  • Consolidated revenue of about $102 billion
  • Consolidated adjusted operating margin of approximately 13.7%
  • Adjusted return on invested capital above 30%
  • Capital expenditures of 5.4% of revenue, or approximately $5.5 billion
  • Dividend payments, subject to board approval, of about $5.2 billion

Finally, UPS is raising the amount of targeted share repurchases for 2022, taking the target to $3 billion for the year.
