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 and 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.
  • 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.
  • Regulatory and business developments regarding climate change could adversely impact our operations and demand for our products.
Management Discussion
  • The increase in net sales in 2020, as compared with 2019, was due to higher sales in the Utility and Irrigation segments that were offset by lower sales in the ESS and Coatings segments. The changes in net sales in 2020, as compared with 2019, 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.
  •     Increased project sales for offshore and other complex steel structures, solar tracking solutions, and international Irrigation is the primary contributor to the increase in sales volume for fiscal 2020, as compared to 2019. Average steel prices for both hot rolled coil and plate were lower in North America and China in fiscal 2020, as compared to 2019, contributing to lower average selling prices for the Utility segment.
