Management Discussion

  • Investing Activities - Cash flows used in investing activities for 2021 were comprised primarily of cash utilized in the acquisitions of Sealite, ECS and Cincinnati Fan of $264.9, net expenditures related to company-owned life insurance policies of $31.2, and capital expenditures of $9.6. Cash flows used in investing activities in 2020 were comprised primarily of cash utilized in the acquisitions of ULC and Sensors & Software of $104.4 and capital expenditures of $15.3.
  • Financing Activities – Cash flows used in financing activities during 2021 were comprised primarily of net repayments on our various debt instruments of $164.5. Cash flows from financing activities during 2020 were comprised primarily of net borrowings on our various debt instruments of $15.6.
