Financial report summary

  • The ultimate consumers of our products operate in cyclical industries that have been subject to significant downturns which have adversely impacted our sales in the past and may again in the future.
  • Changes in prices and reduced availability of key commodities such as steel, aluminum, zinc, natural gas and fuel may increase our operating costs and likely reduce our net sales and profitability.
  • Demand for our infrastructure products including coating services is highly dependent upon the overall level of infrastructure spending.
  • We are subject to currency fluctuations from our international sales, which can negatively impact our reported earnings.
  • COVID-19 has impacted and is expected to continue to impact our business, including the supply chain, product demand, logistics, and facility operations and the duration, unknown at this time, of the challenges associated with the virus may result in significant adverse effects on our business, financial condition and results of operations.
  • Design patent litigation related to guardrails could reduce demand for such products and raise litigation risk.
  • Failure to comply with any applicable anti-corruption legislation could result in fines, criminal penalties and an adverse effect on our business.
  • We could incur substantial costs as the result of violations of, or liabilities under, environmental laws.
  • We assumed an underfunded pension liability as part of the 2010 Delta acquisition and the combined company may be required to increase funding of the plan and/or be subject to restrictions on the use of excess cash.
  • We face strong competition in our markets.
  • We may not realize the improved operating results that we anticipate from acquisitions we may make in the future, and we may experience difficulties in integrating the acquired businesses or may inherit significant liabilities related to such businesses.
Management Discussion
  • The increase in net sales in 2021, as compared with 2020, was due to higher sales in all segments. The changes in net sales in 2021, as compared with 2020, were as follows:
  •     Volume effects are estimated based on a physical production or sales measure. Since products we sell are not uniform in nature, pricing and mix relate to a combination of changes in sales prices and the attributes of the product sold. Accordingly, pricing and mix changes do not necessarily result in operating income changes.
  •     Average steel prices for both hot rolled coil and plate were higher in 2021, as compared to 2020, contributing to higher cost of sales and lower gross profit margin for the Utility and Irrigation segments and the overall Company as raw material cost inflation was not fully recovered through selling pricing mechanisms.
