Management Discussion
  • Net sales in 2021 increased $79.7 million, or 18.7%, to $505.2 million from $425.5 million in 2020.  Sales into the utility water market were $415.3 million, an increase of 20.6% over the prior year’s $344.3 million. The acquisitions of s::can and ATi increased sales $40.7 million compared to 2020. The remaining increase of $39.0 million was attributable to higher sales of the Company’s water meter, radio and software products including ORION Cellular endpoints as well as increased BEACON SaaS revenue associated with data collection and software analytics.  These favorable trends more than offset the supply chain shortages of certain components which limited sales of certain products throughout 2021 and contributed to the record backlog level throughout 2021.  Sales of products into the global flow instrumentation end markets were $89.9 million, 10.7% higher than the prior year’s $81.2 million due to the stabilization of industrial demand globally and across the array of end markets served.
