Financial report summary

  • Weather conditions or natural disasters could affect certain Company markets, such as agriculture, construction, geomembrane installation, or the Company's primary manufacturing facilities.
  • The loss, disruption, or material change in the Company's business relationship with single source suppliers for particular materials, components or services, could cause a disruption in supply, or substantial increase in cost of any such products or services, and therefore could result in harm to the Company's sales, profitability, cash flows and financial condition.
  • Price fluctuations in, and shortages of, raw materials could have a significant impact on the Company's ability to sustain and grow earnings.
  • Fluctuations in commodity prices can increase the Company's costs and decrease sales.
  • Failure to develop and market new technologies and products could impact the Company's competitive position and have an adverse effect on the Company's financial results.
  • Failure to develop and maintain partnerships, alliances, and other distribution or supplier relationships could adversely impact the Company's financial results.
  • The Company's sales of products that are specialized and highly technical in nature are subject to uncertainties, start-up costs and inefficiencies, as well as market, competitive, and compliance risks.
  • The Company's Aerostar segment depends on the U.S. government for a significant portion of its sales, creating uncertainty in the timing of and funding for projected contracts.
  • The Company derives a portion of its revenues from foreign markets, which subjects the Company to business risks, including risk of changes in government policies and laws or changes in worldwide economic conditions.
  • Adverse economic conditions in the major industries the Company serves may materially affect segment performance and consolidated results of operations.
  • The Company may pursue or complete acquisitions which represent additional risk and could impact future financial results.
  • The Company may fail to continue to attract, develop, and retain key management and other key employees, which could negatively impact operating results.
  • The Company could be impacted by unfavorable results or material settlement of legal proceedings.
  • Technology failures or cyber-attacks on the Company's systems could disrupt the Company's operations or the functionality of its products and negatively impact the Company's business.
  • The implementation of a new enterprise resource planning (ERP) system may result in short term disruption to the Company’s operations and business, which could adversely impact the Company and damage customer relationships and brand reputation.
Management Discussion
  • Applied Technology designs, manufactures, sells, and services innovative precision agriculture products and information management tools, which are collectively referred to as precision agriculture equipment, that help farmers reduce costs, more precisely control inputs, and improve farm yields for the global agriculture market.
  • •Market conditions. The North American ag market continues to be negatively impacted by unfavorable weather and low commodity prices, while the U.S.-China trade developments continue to drive uncertainty in the marketplace and negatively impact farmer sentiment. These factors have reduced farm income, and OEMs have responded with lower production of new machines. In the short term, the Company does not anticipate improvement in ag market conditions nor an increase in demand for precision agriculture equipment. The Company does not generally model comparative market share position for its divisions, but the Company believes Applied Technology maintained its market share in the third quarter of fiscal 2020.
  • •Sales volume and selling prices. Third quarter fiscal 2020 net sales decreased $1.2 million or 4.2%, to $28.5 million compared to $29.7 million in the prior year. Year-to-date sales decreased 2.9% to $97.6 million compared to $100.5 million in the prior year. Lower sales volume, rather than a change in selling price, was the primary driver of this decrease. Unfavorable weather during the planting season in North America and poor yield conditions during this year's growing season continued to impact end market demand in North America.
