Management Discussion
  • Net sales increased 23% to $1,345.2 million in fiscal 2021 from $1,092.7 million in fiscal 2020. The increase in net sales reflected the addition of Dayton Parts as well as robust customer demand across all our product channels. Year-over-year net sales growth excluding Dayton Parts for fiscal 2021 was 16%. The absence of the government imposed shut-downs that negatively impacted fiscal 2020 was also a significant contributor to the year-over-year growth.
  • Gross profit margin was 34.4% of net sales in fiscal 2021 compared to 35.1% of net sales in fiscal 2020. Gross margin contraction was driven by broad-based inflationary impacts due to global transportation and logistics constraints and higher costs from fair value adjustments to inventory recorded in connection with the Dayton Parts acquisition in fiscal 2021. These factors were partially offset by cost saving initiatives and price increases. Additionally, we benefitted from the absence of out-of-pocket costs incurred due to the COVID-19 pandemic in fiscal 2020.
  • Selling, general and administrative expenses were $291.4 million, or 21.7% of net sales, in fiscal 2021 compared to $249.7 million, or 22.9% of net sales, in fiscal 2020. The decrease in SG&A as a percentage of net sales was due to the operating leverage from the $252.5 million increase in net sales in fiscal 2021 as compared to fiscal 2020. Additionally, we saw benefits in SG&A as a percentage of net sales from the absence of out-of-pocket costs related to the COVID-19 pandemic incurred in fiscal 2020. These benefits were partially offset by wage and benefits inflation and costs related to the completion of the Dayton Parts acquisition and subsequent integration activities in fiscal 2021.
