Management Discussion
  • For the fiscal year ended February 29, 2020, we recorded net sales of $1,061.8 million compared to prior year’s net sales of $927.1 million. Of total net sales for fiscal 2020, approximately 47.0% were generated from the Metal Coatings segment and approximately 53.0% of our net sales were generated from the Energy segment. Net income for fiscal 2020 was $48.2 million compared to $51.2 million for fiscal 2019. Net income as a percentage of net sales was 4.5% for fiscal 2020 as compared to 5.5% for fiscal 2019. Earnings per share decreased by 6.1% to $1.84 per share for fiscal 2020 compared to $1.96 per share for fiscal 2019, on a diluted basis.
  • The results for fiscal 2020 include a loss on divestiture of $18.6 million related to the sale of our nuclear logistics business and impairment charges of $9.2 million related to the exit from the nuclear certified portion of our industrial welding solutions business.
  • Our entire backlog, which is inclusive of transaction taxes for certain foreign subsidiaries, relates to our Energy segment. We ended fiscal 2020 with a backlog of $243.8 million, a decrease of $89.1 million or 26.8% compared to fiscal 2019. The book to revenue ratio decreased in fiscal 2020 as compared to fiscal 2019. The book to revenue ratio was 0.92 to 1 for fiscal 2020 and 1.07 to 1 for fiscal 2019. The reduction in book to revenue ratio in fiscal 2020 resulted from a current year reduction in backlog in China as we completed several large orders received in prior years.
