Financial report summary

  • Our distribution business is highly dependent on our ability to maintain favorable relationships with suppliers.
  • We depend on a global network of suppliers to source our products, including our own branded products and products we have exclusive distribution rights to. Product quality, warranty claims or safety concerns could negatively impact our sales and expose us to litigation.
  • We face intense competition both from within our industry and from other leisure product alternatives.
  • More aggressive competition by store- and internet-based mass merchants and large pool or irrigation supply retailers could adversely affect our sales.
  • We depend on our ability to attract, develop and retain highly qualified personnel.
  • Past growth may not be indicative of future growth.
  • We are subject to inventory management risks. Insufficient inventory may result in lost sales opportunities or delayed revenue, while excess inventory may negatively impact our gross margin.
  • The cost of chemical products could increase our cost of sales and adversely affect our results of operations and financial condition.
  • We store chemicals, fertilizers and other combustible materials that involve fire, safety and casualty risks.
  • We conduct business internationally, which exposes us to additional risks.
  • Changes in tax laws and accounting standards related to tax matters have caused, and may in the future cause, fluctuations in our effective tax rate.
  • We may be adversely affected by changes in LIBOR reporting practices or the method in which LIBOR is determined.
  • Disruptions from natural or man-made disasters or extreme weather, public safety issues, geopolitical events and security issues, labor or trade disputes and similar events could have a material adverse effect on our business.
Management Discussion
  • As of March 31, 2021, we conducted operations through 400 sales centers in North America, Europe and Australia. For the three months ended March 31, 2021, approximately 93% of our net sales were from our operations in North America.
  • Note: Due to rounding, percentages presented in the table above may not add to Income before income taxes and equity earnings.
  • We have included the results of operations from acquisitions in 2021 and 2020 in our consolidated results since the acquisition dates.
