Management Discussion
  • Consolidated net sales for the year ended December 31, 2020 were $2,521 million compared with $2,753 million in 2019, a decrease of $232 million. In 2020, the Company experienced lower unit volume ($355 million) primarily as a result of the market slowdown caused by the COVID-19 pandemic during the first half of 2020, as well as unfavorable foreign currency impact ($6 million). These unfavorable items were partially offset by favorable price and mix ($129 million).
  • The Company recorded an operating profit of $231 million in 2020, compared to operating profit of $174 million in 2019. The Company's 2020 operating profit benefited from $78 million of favorable price and mix, $67 million of lower raw material costs and $44 million of lower net product liability expense compared to 2019. This was partially offset by $61 million of increased manufacturing costs, primarily related to production days lost due to plant shut downs, and $73 million of lower unit volume, both attributable to the COVID-19 pandemic. Additionally, the Company experienced $5 million of lower selling, general and administrative expenses, while restructuring costs increased by $4 million.
  • The principal raw materials for the Company include natural rubber, synthetic rubber, carbon black, chemicals and steel reinforcement components. Approximately 70 percent of the Company’s raw materials are petroleum-based. Substantially all U.S. inventories have been valued using the LIFO method of inventory costing, which accelerates the impact to cost of goods sold from changes to raw material prices.
