(In thousands, except per share information)

 

 

1.

Accounting Policies

 

Basis of Presentation

 

The accompanying unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles for interim financial information and with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by generally accepted accounting principles for complete financial statements. In the opinion of management, all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring accruals) considered necessary for a fair presentation have been included. Additionally, the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements should be read in conjunction with Item 2 of Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations, included in this Form 10-Q. Operating results for the 13-week period ended March 28, 2020 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ending December 26, 2020.

 

The Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheet at December 28, 2019 has been derived from the audited financial statements at that date but does not include all of the information and footnotes required by generally accepted accounting principles for complete financial statements. For further information, refer to the Consolidated Financial Statements and footnotes thereto included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 28, 2019.

 

The Company’s fiscal year is based on a 52-53 week period ending on the last Saturday of the calendar year. Therefore, the financial results of certain 53-week fiscal years, and the associated 14-week quarters, will not be exactly comparable to the prior and subsequent 52-week fiscal years and the associated 13-week quarters. The quarters ended March 28, 2020 and March 30, 2019 both contain operating results for 13 weeks.

 

Significant Accounting Policies

 

For a description of the significant accounting policies and methods used in the preparation of the Company’s Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements, refer to Note 2, “Summary of Significant Accounting Policies” in the Notes to the Consolidated Financial Statements in Part II, Item 8 of the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 28, 2019. Other than the policy discussed below, there were no material changes to the Company’s significant accounting policies during the 13-week period ended March 28, 2020.

Marketable Securities

Management determines the appropriate classification of marketable securities at the time of purchase and reevaluates such designation as of each balance sheet date.  All of the Company’s marketable securities were considered available-for-sale as of March 28, 2020 and December 28, 2019. Available-for-sale securities are stated at fair value.

 

The Company recognizes impairments relating to credit losses of available-for-sale securities through an allowance for credit losses and Other income (expense) on the Company’s Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income.  Impairment not relating to credit losses is recorded in Other comprehensive income (loss) on the Company’s Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets.

 

Testing for impairment of investments requires significant management judgment. The identification of potentially impaired investments, the determination of their fair value, and the assessment of whether any decline in value is relating to credit losses are the key judgment elements. The discovery of new information and the passage of time can significantly change these judgments. Revisions of impairment judgments are made when new information becomes known, and any resulting impairment adjustments are made at that time.  The economic environment and volatility of securities markets increase the difficulty of determining fair value and assessing investment impairment.  

 

In making this assessment we evaluate the extent to which the fair value is less than the amortized cost basis, any change in credit rating of the security, adverse conditions specifically related to the security, failure of the issuer to make scheduled payments, and other relevant factors affecting the security. If it is determined that a credit loss exists, the amount of the credit loss is determined by comparing the present value of the expected future cash flows for the security to the amortized cost basis of the security, limited by the amount that the fair value is less than the amortized cost basis.

The amortized cost of debt securities classified as available-for-sale is adjusted for amortization of premiums and accretion of discounts to maturity, or in the case of mortgage-backed securities, over the estimated life of the security.  Such amortization and realized gains/losses are recorded within Interest income and Other income (expense), respectively, on the Company’s Consolidated Statements of Income. The cost of securities sold is based on the specific identification method.  

 

Recently Adopted Accounting Standards

 

Financial Instruments – Credit Losses

 

In June 2016, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued Accounting Standards Update No. 2016-13, Financial Instruments – Credit Losses (Topic 326): Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments (“ASU 2016-13”).  ASU 2016-13 changes how entities assess and measure credit losses of certain financial instruments, including available-for-sale securities and accounts receivable.  The Company adopted the new standard as of the beginning of the 2020 fiscal year.  The adoption of the standard did not have a material impact on the Company’s Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements.

 

Receivables – Nonrefundable Fees and Other Costs

 

In March 2017, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update No. 2017-08, Receivables – Nonrefundable Fees and Other Costs (Topic 310-20): Premium Amortization on Purchased Callable Debt Securities (“ASU 2017-08”), which shortens the amortization period for certain callable debt securities held at a premium, requiring the premium to be amortized to the earliest call date.  The Company adopted the new standard as of the beginning of the 2020 fiscal year. The adoption of the standard did not have a material impact on the Company’s Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements.

 

 

Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements Not Yet Adopted

 

We do not expect any recently issued accounting pronouncements not yet adopted to have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements, accounting policies, processes, or systems upon adoption.

Segment Information

 

The Company has identified 5 reportable segments – auto, aviation, fitness, marine, and outdoor.  There are 2 operating segments, auto personal navigation devices (“auto PND”) and auto original equipment manufacturer solutions (“auto OEM”) that are not reported separately but are aggregated within the auto reportable segment.  The Company’s Chief Executive Officer, who has been identified as the Chief Operating Decision Maker (CODM), uses operating income as the measure of profit or loss, combined with other measures, to assess segment performance and allocate resources. Operating income represents net sales less costs of goods sold and operating expenses. Net sales are directly attributed to each segment. Most costs of goods sold and the majority of operating expenses are also directly attributed to each segment, while certain other costs of goods sold and operating expenses are allocated to the segments in a manner appropriate to the specific facts and circumstances of the expenses being allocated.

 

Net sales (“revenue”), gross profit, and operating income for each of the Company’s reportable segments are presented below.

Warranty Reserves

 

The Company’s standard warranty obligation to its end-users provides for a period of one to two years from the date of shipment, while certain aviation, marine, and auto OEM products have a warranty period of two years or more from the date of installation. The Company’s estimates of costs to service its warranty obligations are based on historical experience and management’s expectations and judgments of future conditions, and are recorded as a liability on the balance sheet. The following reconciliation provides an illustration of changes in the aggregate warranty reserve.

Commitments and Contingencies

 

Commitments

 

The Company is party to certain commitments, which include purchases of raw materials, capital expenditures, advertising, and other indirect purchases in connection with conducting our business. The aggregate amount of purchase orders and other commitments open as of March 28, 2020 was approximately $638,400. We cannot determine the aggregate amount of such purchase orders that represent contractual obligations because purchase orders may represent authorizations to purchase rather than binding agreements. Our purchase orders are based on our current needs and typically fulfilled by our suppliers, contract manufacturers, and logistic providers within short periods of time.

Contingencies

 

In the normal course of business, the Company and its subsidiaries are parties to various legal claims, investigations and complaints, including matters alleging patent infringement and other intellectual property claims. The Company evaluates, on a quarterly and annual basis, developments in legal proceedings, investigations, claims, and other loss contingencies that could affect any required accrual or disclosure or estimate of reasonably possible loss or range of loss. An estimated loss from a loss contingency is accrued by a charge to income if it is probable that an asset has been impaired or a liability has been incurred and the amount of the loss can be reasonably estimated. If a range of loss is estimated, and some amount within that range appears to be a better estimate than any other amount within that range, then that amount is accrued. If no amount within the range can be identified as a better estimate than any other amount, the Company accrues the minimum amount in the range.

 

If an outcome unfavorable to the Company is determined to be probable, but the amount of loss cannot be reasonably estimated or is determined to be reasonably possible, but not probable, we disclose the nature of the contingency and an estimate of the possible loss or range of loss or a statement that such an estimate cannot be made. The Company’s aggregate range of reasonably possible losses includes (1) matters where a liability has been accrued and there is a reasonably possible loss in excess of the amount accrued for that liability, and (2) matters where a loss is believed to be reasonably possible, but not probable, and a liability therefore has not been accrued. This aggregate range only represents the Company’s estimate of reasonably possible losses and does not represent the Company’s maximum loss exposure. The assessment regarding whether a loss is probable or reasonably possible, and whether the loss or a range of loss is estimable, often involves a series of complex judgments about future events. In assessing the probability of an outcome in a lawsuit, claim or assessment that could be unfavorable to the Company, we consider the following factors, among others: a) the nature of the litigation, claim, or assessment; b) the progress of the case; c) the opinions or views of legal counsel and other advisers; d) our experience in similar cases; e) the experience of other entities in similar cases; and f) how we intend to respond to the lawsuit, claim, or assessment. Costs incurred in defending lawsuits, claims or assessments are expensed as incurred.

 

Management of the Company currently does not believe it is reasonably possible that the Company may have incurred a material loss, or a material loss in excess of recorded accruals, with respect to loss contingencies in the aggregate, for the fiscal quarter ended March 28, 2020. The results of legal proceedings, investigations and claims, however, cannot be predicted with certainty. An adverse resolution of one or more of such matters in excess of management’s expectations could have a material adverse effect in the particular quarter or fiscal year in which a loss is recorded, but based on information currently known, the Company does not believe it is likely that losses from such matters would have a material adverse effect on the Company’s business or its consolidated financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

 

The Company settled or resolved certain matters during the 13-week period ended March 28, 2020 that did not individually or in the aggregate have a material impact on the Company’s business or its consolidated financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

 

 

7.

Income Taxes

 

The Company recorded income tax expense of $16,455 in the 13-week period ended March 28, 2020, compared to income tax expense of $26,092 in the 13-week period ended March 30, 2019. The effective tax rate was 9.3% in the first quarter of 2020, compared to 15.7% in the first quarter of 2019. The 640 basis points decrease to the first quarter of 2020 effective tax rate compared to the prior year quarter is primarily due to a favorable shift in income mix by jurisdiction as a result of the migration of intellectual property ownership from Switzerland to the United States, which began in the first quarter of 2020.

8.Marketable Securities

 

The FASB ASC topic entitled Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures defines fair value as the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date (exit price). The accounting guidance classifies the inputs used to measure fair value into the following hierarchy:

 

 

Level 1

Unadjusted quoted prices in active markets for the identical asset or liability

 

 

Level 2

Observable inputs for the asset or liability, either directly or indirectly, such as quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities in active markets, quoted prices for identical or similar assets or liabilities in markets that are not active, or inputs other than quoted prices that are observable for the asset or liability

 

 

Level 3

Unobservable inputs for the asset or liability

 

The Company endeavors to utilize the best available information in measuring fair value. Financial assets and liabilities are classified in their entirety based on the lowest level of input that is significant to the fair value measurement. Valuation is based on prices obtained from an independent pricing vendor using both market and income approaches. The primary inputs to the valuation include quoted prices for similar assets in active markets, quoted prices for identical or similar assets in markets that are not active, contractual cash flows, benchmark yields, and credit spreads.

 

The method described above may produce a fair value calculation that may not be indicative of net realizable value or reflective of future fair values. Furthermore, while the Company believes its valuation methods are appropriate and consistent with other market participants, the use of different methodologies or assumptions to determine the fair value of certain financial instruments could result in a different fair value measurement at the reporting date. 

 

Marketable securities classified as available-for-sale securities are summarized below:

The Company’s investment policy targets low risk investments with the objective of minimizing the potential risk of principal loss. The fair value of securities varies from period to period due to changes in interest rates, the performance of the underlying collateral, and the credit performance of the underlying issuer, among other factors.

Accrued interest receivable, which totaled $10,479 as of March 28, 2020, is excluded from both the fair value and amortized cost basis of available-for-sale securities and is included within Prepaid expenses and other current assets on the Company’s Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets.  The Company writes off impaired accrued interest on a timely basis, generally within 30 days of the due date, by reversing interest income.  NaN accrued interest was written off during the 13-week period ended March 28, 2020.

 

The Company recognizes impairments relating to credit losses of available-for-sale securities through an allowance for credit losses and Other income (expense) on the Company’s Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income.  Impairment not relating to credit losses is recorded in Other comprehensive income (loss) on the Company’s Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets.  The cost of securities sold is based on the specific identification method.  Approximately 49% of securities in the Company’s portfolio were at an unrealized loss position as of March 28, 2020.

 

The following tables display additional information regarding gross unrealized losses and fair value by major security type for available-for-sale securities in an unrealized loss position as of March 28, 2020 and December 28, 2019.

As of March 28, 2020 and December 28, 2019, the Company had 0t recognized an allowance for credit losses on any securities in an unrealized loss position.  

 

The Company has 0t recorded an allowance for credit losses and charge to Other income for the unrealized losses on mortgage-backed, corporate, municipal, and other securities presented above because we do not consider the declines in fair value to have resulted from credit losses.  We have not observed a significant deterioration in credit quality of these securities, which are rated as investment grade with moderate to low credit risk. The declines in value are largely attributable to current global economic conditions.  The securities continue to make timely principal and interest payments, and the fair values are expected to recover as they approach maturity. The Company does not intend to sell the securities, and it is not more likely than not that the Company will be required to sell the securities, before the respective recoveries of their amortized cost bases, which may be maturity.

 

The amortized cost and fair value of marketable securities at March 28, 2020, by maturity, are shown below.

Revenue

 

In order to further depict how the nature, amount, timing and uncertainty of our revenue and cash flows are affected by economic factors, we disaggregate revenue (or “net sales”) by geographic region, major product category, and pattern of recognition.

 

Disaggregated revenue by geographic region (Americas, APAC, and EMEA) is presented in Note 4 – Segment Information. The Company has identified six major product categories – auto PND, auto OEM, aviation, fitness, marine, and outdoor. Note 4 also contains disaggregated revenue information of the aviation, fitness, marine, and outdoor major product categories. Auto segment revenue presented in Note 4 is comprised of the auto PND and auto OEM major product categories, as depicted below.

A large majority of the Company’s sales are recognized on a point in time basis, usually once the product is shipped and title and risk of loss have transferred to the customer. Sales recognized over a period of time are primarily within the auto segment and relate to performance obligations that are satisfied over the life of the product or contractual service period. Revenue disaggregated by the timing of transfer of the goods or services is presented in the table below:

Item 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations

 

Overview

 

The discussion set forth below, as well as other portions of this Quarterly Report, contains statements concerning potential future events. Such forward-looking statements are based upon assumptions by management, as of the date of this Quarterly Report, including assumptions about risks and uncertainties faced by the Company. Readers can identify these forward-looking statements by their use of such verbs as expects, anticipates, believes or similar verbs or conjugations of such verbs. If any of the Company’s assumptions prove incorrect or should unanticipated circumstances arise, actual results could materially differ from those anticipated by such forward-looking statements. The differences could be caused by a number of factors or combination of factors including, but not limited to, those factors identified in Part II, Item 1A of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q and in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 28, 2019. This report has been filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC” or the “Commission”) in Washington, D.C. and can be obtained by contacting the SEC’s public reference operations or obtaining it through the SEC’s website at http://www.sec.gov. Readers are strongly encouraged to consider those factors when evaluating any forward-looking statement concerning the Company. The Company will not update any forward-looking statements in this Quarterly Report to reflect future events or developments.

 

The information contained in this Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations should be read in conjunction with the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements and Notes thereto included in this Form 10-Q and the audited financial statements and notes thereto in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 28, 2019.

 

The Company is a leading worldwide provider of wireless devices and applications that are designed for people who live an active lifestyle, many of which feature Global Positioning System (GPS) navigation. We operate in five reportable segments, which serve the auto, aviation, fitness, marine, and outdoor markets. The Company’s segments offer products through its network of subsidiary distributors and independent dealers and distributors and some also maintain relationships with original equipment manufacturers (OEMs). However, the nature of products and types of customers for the five segments may vary significantly. As such, the segments are managed separately.

 

 Impacts of COVID-19

 

The novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has created disruption and uncertainty in the global economy and has affected our business, suppliers, and customers, as described below.  Although the impact to the Company’s financial results was not significant in the first quarter of 2020, our net sales have been adversely impacted early in the second quarter of 2020, and we expect that our net sales will continue to be adversely impacted during the remainder of the second quarter of 2020 and in future periods as we experience significantly lower overall demand for our products due to limitations on economic activity caused by government restrictions and as our customers face economic hardships.  We also expect an adverse impact on our profitability in the second quarter and in future periods as we are unable to efficiently leverage certain operating costs.  These impacts are expected to be material; however, the duration of these trends and the magnitude of such impacts cannot be reasonably estimated at this time, as they are affected by a number of factors including the timeline of lifting restrictions on business and social gathering activities, as well as those presented below in Item 1A. Risk Factors of this Quarterly Report.  

 

Sustained adverse impacts to us, suppliers, or customers may also affect the future valuation of certain assets and therefore may increase the likelihood of an impairment charge, write-off, write-down, reserve, or accelerated expense associated with such assets, including marketable securities, accounts receivable, inventories, prepaid expenses, property and equipment, tax assets, goodwill, indefinite and finite-lived intangible assets, capitalized preproduction design and development costs, and other assets.  

 

With pre-existing fundamentals such as trade credit insurance, direct online sales through our webshops, direct fulfillment arrangements with certain retailers, our strong cash and marketable securities position, and ample inventory on hand, we were well-positioned to mitigate the initial impacts of COVID-19.  As COVID-19 further evolved into a complicated and prolonged global pandemic, we have implemented additional mitigation measures, such as initiating additional direct fulfillment arrangements with retailers, mitigating single source supplier dependencies, maintaining a healthy and safe environment for essential on-site functions, enhancing functionality and security of technology for employees who are working from home, and planning for the eventual reintegration of our on-site workforce.  We are also mitigating impacts to operating income and liquidity by reducing and prioritizing certain discretionary operating expenses and capital expenditures, and reducing the number of employees we hire.

Net sales increased 12% for the 13-week period ended March 28, 2020 when compared to the year-ago quarter. The fitness, outdoor, aviation, and marine segments collectively increased by 17%, contributing 88% of total revenue. Fitness was the largest portion of our revenue mix at 26% in the first quarter of 2020 compared to 24% in the first quarter of 2019.  Total unit sales in the first quarter of 2020 decreased to 2,931 when compared to total unit sales of 3,182 in the first quarter of 2019, primarily due to shifts in segment and product mix.

 

Fitness, outdoor, aviation, and marine segment revenue increased 24%, 14%, 10%, and 22%, respectively, when compared to the year-ago quarter. The fitness segment revenue increase was primarily driven by sales from Tacx and sales growth in advanced wearables.  The outdoor segment revenue increase was primarily driven by sales growth in adventure watches. The aviation segment revenue increase was driven by sales growth in multiple product categories, primarily in aftermarket. The current quarter marine segment revenue increase was driven by sales growth in multiple product categories, led primarily by chartplotters and advanced sonars. Auto segment revenue decreased 17% from the year-ago quarter, primarily due to the ongoing PND market contraction and lower auto OEM sales in the current quarter.

 Gross profit dollars in the first quarter of 2020 increased 12%, primarily due to growth in net sales compared to the year-ago quarter. Gross margin increased in the auto segment, was relatively flat in the fitness, outdoor and marine segments, and decreased in the aviation segment when compared to the year-ago quarter.

 

The auto segment gross margin increase of 150 basis points was primarily attributable to lower license expense. The aviation segment gross margin decrease was primarily attributable to product mix.

Advertising expense as a percent of revenue was slightly lower when compared to the year-ago quarter and decreased 3% in absolute dollars. The total absolute dollar decrease was primarily attributable to decreased cooperative advertising in the auto segment and decreased media advertising in the outdoor segment, partially offset by increased cooperative advertising in the outdoor segment.

Selling, general and administrative expense increased 8% in absolute dollars and was slightly lower as a percent of revenue compared to the year-ago quarter. The absolute dollar increase in the first quarter of 2020 was primarily attributable to expenses from recent acquisitions and increased personnel and information technology costs, partially offset by lower legal related costs. The fitness and marine segment decrease as a percent of revenue was primarily due to greater leverage of operating costs.

Research and development expense as a percent of revenue was relatively flat when compared to the year-ago quarter and increased 13% in absolute dollars. The absolute dollar increase was primarily due to higher engineering personnel costs related to wearable and aviation product offerings and expenses resulting from recent acquisitions. The auto segment increase in absolute dollars and as a percent of revenue was primarily attributable to auto OEM product development. Our research and development spending is focused on product development, improving existing software capabilities, and exploring new categories.

Operating income increased 17% in absolute dollars and 100 basis points as a percent of revenue when compared to the year-ago quarter. In the current quarter, the operating income growth in absolute dollars and as a percent of revenue was primarily attributable to revenue growth, consistent gross margin, and greater leverage of operating expenses, as discussed above.  Operating income in the auto segment decreased in absolute dollars from the

18


 

year-ago quarter to approximately breakeven in the current quarter primarily due to investments in auto OEM product development and lower auto OEM sales.

The average return on cash and investments, including interest and capital gains/losses, during the first quarter of 2020 was 1.9% compared to 2.0% during the same quarter of 2019. Interest income decreased primarily due to slightly lower yields on fixed-income securities.

 

Foreign currency gains and losses for the Company are driven by movements of a number of currencies in relation to the U.S. Dollar. The Taiwan Dollar is the functional currency of Garmin Corporation, the Euro is the functional currency of several subsidiaries, and the U.S. Dollar is the functional currency of Garmin (Europe) Ltd., although some transactions and balances are denominated in British Pounds. Other notable currency exposures include the Australian Dollar, Chinese Yuan, and Japanese Yen.  The majority of the Company’s consolidated foreign currency gain or loss is typically driven by the significant cash and marketable securities, receivables and payables held in a currency other than the functional currency at a given legal entity.

 

The $15.4 million currency loss recognized in the first quarter of 2020 was primarily due to the U.S. Dollar strengthening against the Euro, British Pound Sterling, and Australian Dollar, partially offset by the U.S. Dollar strengthening against the Taiwan Dollar, within the 13-week period ended March 28, 2020. During this period, the U.S. Dollar strengthened 0.3% against the Euro, 4.7% against the British Pound Sterling, and 12.7% against the Australian Dollar, resulting in losses of $1.9 million, $2.3 million, and $5.1 million, respectively, while the U.S. Dollar strengthened 0.3% against the Taiwan Dollar, resulting in a gain of $2.0 million. The remaining net currency loss of $8.1 million was related to the timing of transactions and impacts of other currencies, each of which was individually immaterial.

 

The $0.3 million currency gain recognized in the first quarter of 2019 was primarily due to the strengthening of the U.S. Dollar against the Taiwan Dollar and weakening against the British Pound Sterling, offset by the U.S. Dollar strengthening against the Euro, within the 13-week period ended March 30, 2019. During this period, the U.S. Dollar strengthened 0.9% against the Taiwan Dollar and weakened 2.6% against the British Pound Sterling, resulting in gains of $5.8 million and $1.2 million, respectively, while the U.S. Dollar strengthened 1.9% against the Euro, resulting in a loss of $7.8 million. The remaining net currency gain of $1.1 million was related to the timing of transactions and impacts of other currencies, each of which was individually immaterial.

 

Income Tax Provision

 

The Company recorded income tax expense of $16.5 million in the 13-week period ended March 28, 2020, compared to income tax expense of $26.1 million in the 13-week period ended March 30, 2019. The effective tax rate was 9.3% in the first quarter of 2020, compared to 15.7% in the first quarter of 2019. The 640 basis points decrease to the first quarter of 2020 effective tax rate compared to the prior year quarter is primarily due to a favorable shift in income mix by jurisdiction as a result of the migration of intellectual property ownership from Switzerland to the United States, which began in the first quarter of 2020.

 

Net Income

 

As a result of the above, net income for the 13-week period ended March 28, 2020 was $161.2 million compared to $140.2 million for the 13-week period ended March 30, 2019, an increase of $21.0 million.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

As of March 28, 2020, we had approximately $2.6 billion of cash and cash equivalents and marketable securities. We primarily use cash flow from operations, and expect that future cash requirements may be used, to fund our capital expenditures, support our working capital requirements, pay dividends, and fund strategic acquisitions. We believe that our existing cash balances and cash flow from operations will be sufficient to meet our short- and long-term projected working capital needs, capital expenditures, and other cash requirements.

 

It is management’s goal to invest the on-hand cash in accordance with the investment policy, which has been approved by the Company’s Board of Directors. The investment policy’s primary purpose is to preserve capital, maintain an acceptable degree of liquidity, and maximize yield within the constraint of low credit risk. Garmin’s average interest rate returns on cash and investments during the first quarter of 2020 and 2019 were approximately 1.8% and 2.0%, respectively. The fair value of our securities varies from period to period due to changes in interest rates, in the performance of the underlying collateral, and in the credit performance of the underlying issuer, among other factors. See Note 8 for additional information regarding marketable securities.

The $61.3 million increase in cash provided by operating activities during the first quarter of 2020 compared to the first quarter of 2019 was due to an increase in cash used in working capital of $37.7 million (which included an increase of $84.3 million in net receipts of accounts receivable, partially offset by an  increase of $8.3 million in cash paid for inventory associated primarily with the Company’s effort to increase days of supply to support our increasingly diversified product lines, and an increase of $38.3 million net cash used in accounts payable and other activities) offset by an increase of $14.6 million net cash used in income taxes payable. Additional increases were due to the year over year increase in net income of $21.0 million and an increase in other non-cash adjustments to net income of $17.2 million.

The $93.2 million decrease in cash used in financing activities during the first quarter of 2020 compared to the first quarter of 2019 was primarily due to a decrease in dividend payments of $92.1 million associated with the timing of dividend payments that resulted in two dividend payments in the first quarter of 2019 compared to one dividend payment in the first quarter of 2020.

Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates

 

General

 

Garmin’s discussion and analysis of its financial condition and results of operations are based upon Garmin’s Consolidated Financial Statements, which have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States. The presentation of these financial statements requires Garmin to make estimates and judgments that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenue and expenses, and related disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities. On an on-going basis, Garmin evaluates its estimates, including those related to bad debts, inventories, investments, intangible assets, income taxes, warranty obligations, contingencies, customer sales programs and incentives, product returns, relative standalone selling prices, and progress toward completion of performance obligations in certain contracts with customers. Garmin bases its estimates on historical experience and on various other assumptions that are believed to be reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying value of assets and liabilities that are not readily apparent from other sources. Actual results may differ from these estimates under different assumptions or conditions.

 

For a description of the significant accounting policies and methods used in the preparation of the Company’s Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements, refer to Note 2, “Summary of Significant Accounting Policies” in the Notes to the Consolidated Financial Statements in Part II, Item 8 and “Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates” in Part II, Item 7 of the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 28, 2019. There were no significant changes to the Company’s critical accounting policies and estimates in the 13-week period ended March 28, 2020.

 

Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk

 

There are numerous market risks that can affect our future business, financial condition and results of operations. In addition to the other information set forth in this report, you should carefully consider the factors discussed in Part II, “Item 7A. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 28, 2019. There have been no material changes during the 13-week period ended March 28, 2020 in the risks described in our Annual Report on Form 10-K related to market sensitivity, inflation, foreign currency exchange rate risk and interest rate risk.

 

Item 4. Controls and Procedures

 

(a) Evaluation of disclosure controls and procedures. The Company maintains a system of disclosure controls and procedures that are designed to provide reasonable assurance that information, which is required to be timely disclosed, is accumulated and communicated to management in a timely fashion.  A control system, no matter how well conceived and operated, can provide only reasonable, not absolute, assurance that the objectives of the control system are met. As of March 28, 2020, the Company carried out an evaluation, under the supervision and with the participation of the Company’s management, including the Company’s Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, of the effectiveness of the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures.  Based upon that evaluation, the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer concluded as of March 28, 2020 that our disclosure controls and procedures were effective such that the information relating to the Company, required to be disclosed in our Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) reports (i) is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in SEC rules and forms, and (ii) is accumulated and communicated to the Company’s management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

 

(b) Changes in internal control over financial reporting. There has been no change in the Company’s internal controls over financial reporting that occurred during the Company’s fiscal quarter ended March 28, 2020 that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, the Company’s internal control over financial reporting.

Part II - Other Information

 

 

In the normal course of business, the Company and its subsidiaries are parties to various legal claims, actions, and complaints, including matters involving patent infringement, other intellectual property, product liability, customer claims and various other risks. It is not possible to predict with certainty whether or not the Company and its subsidiaries will ultimately be successful in any of these legal matters, or if not, what the impact might be. However, the Company’s management does not expect that the results in any of these legal proceedings will have a material adverse effect on the Company’s results of operations, financial position or cash flows. For additional information, see Note 6 – Commitments and Contingencies in the above Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements and Part I, “Item 3. Legal Proceedings” in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 28, 2019.

 

Item 1A. Risk Factors

 

There are many risks and uncertainties that can affect our future business, financial performance or share price. In addition to the other information set forth in this report, you should carefully consider the factors discussed in Part I, “Item 1A. Risk Factors” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 28, 2019, as supplemented by the risk factor set forth below.  These risks, however, are not the only risks facing our Company. Additional risks and uncertainties not currently known to us or that we currently deem to be immaterial also may materially adversely affect our business, financial condition and/or operating results.

 

The following additional risk factor is supplementing the risk factors included in “Item 1A. Risk Factors” of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 28, 2019:

 

The novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic will have significant impacts on our business.

 

The COVID-19 pandemic has created disruption and uncertainty around the world, which, thus far in the second quarter of 2020, has resulted and we expect will continue to result, in reduced overall demand for our products, impacts on our distribution channels, and other operational impacts. Due to unknown factors such as the duration and severity of the pandemic, the nature and duration of actions taken by governments, businesses and individuals to contain or mitigate its impact, the severity and duration of the economic impact caused by the pandemic, the uncertainty surrounding possible treatments or vaccines,  along with the effectiveness of our response, we are not currently able to estimate the magnitude of adverse effects to our business operations, results of operations, and its ultimate impact on our financial condition.

 

Demand for our products has been, and is expected to continue to be, adversely affected in several ways.  Consumers have been and may continue to be less able or less likely to purchase our products due to economic hardships, governmental restrictions affecting them and the retail outlets that sell our products, the prioritization of other goods and services by online retailers that sell our products, restrictions on the ability of online retailers to ship products to certain areas, and the potential failure and closure of retail outlets and online retailers that sell our products.  Certain of our sales and distribution offices have experienced and may continue to experience temporary closure due to governmental restrictions.  Additional or prolonged closures of certain sales and distribution offices could affect our ability to market and distribute products to meet customer demand.  The development of the pandemic has created economic stress in the global marketplace, high levels of unemployment, loss of income and/or wealth for some individuals, and general economic uncertainty.  These conditions have affected and may continue to affect the willingness or ability of certain customers to purchase our products or those of original equipment manufacturers in which our products are installed.

 

Our supply chain may also be adversely impacted by COVID-19.  We may be unable to procure, or experience delays in procuring, certain components from our suppliers, and the cost of procuring components could increase.  Reduced demand for our products may result in the underutilization of our manufacturing facilities and excess capacity costs.  Certain of our manufacturing facilities may also experience inopportune temporary closures or reduced hours, which could adversely affect our ability to meet demand and the costs incurred to produce our products.  

 

COVID-19 has had and will continue to have several other operational impacts on our business, including employees working remotely, temporarily ceasing operations in some offices due to government restrictions, business travel restrictions, and the cancellation of trade shows and events that are otherwise important in the development, marketing, and sale of our products. These changes in our business operations may result in reduced efficiency and lower productivity. We have incurred and are expected to continue to incur increased costs as we provide additional benefits to

22


 

assist our employees during the COVID-19 pandemic and provide a safe and healthy workplace for employees who continue to work in our facilities.  Similar operational and financial hardships on our business partners may result in aged or uncollectable receivables, and the reduced demand for our products could result in obsolescence of our inventory.  If the economy experiences a sustained downturn of significant proportion that impacts our business, we may also need to incur the costs and organizational impacts of personnel restructuring.  

 

The risks and impacts associated with COVID-19 described above are not the only ones that that affect our Company. Other risks presented in “Item 1A. Risk Factors” of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 28, 2019, such as gross margin fluctuation, foreign currency fluctuations, successful continued product development, impacts to our key personnel, and dependencies on third party suppliers, may be heightened as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Additionally, there are unknown risks and impacts due to the uncertainty and rapidly evolving nature of the pandemic including, but not limited to the unprecedented actions of government that impact the economy and normal operations of a business. If we are unable to manage these risks, our business, financial condition, and results of operations could be materially impacted.
