1.    GENERAL

The accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America 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 accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America for complete financial statements. In the opinion of management, all adjustments (all of which consisted of normal recurring accruals) considered necessary for a fair presentation have been included. Operating results for the three months ended March 31, 2021 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ending December 31, 2021.

The consolidated balance sheet at December 31, 2020 has been derived from the audited consolidated financial statements at that date but does not include all of the information and footnotes required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America for complete financial statements.

For further information, refer to the consolidated financial statements and footnotes thereto included in the annual report of Marine Products Corporation (“Marine Products,” the “Company” or “MPC”) on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020.

A group that includes the Company’s Chairman of the Board, Gary W. Rollins, and certain companies under his control, controls in excess of 50 percent of the Company’s voting power.

2.    RECENT ACCOUNTING STANDARDS

The FASB issued the following Accounting Standards Updates (ASUs):

Recently Adopted Accounting Standards:

Accounting Standards Update (ASU) No. 2019-12 — Income Taxes (Topic 740): Simplifying the Accounting for Income Taxes. The amendments in this ASU simplify the accounting for income taxes by removing the exceptions to the incremental approach for intra-period tax allocation in certain situations, requirement to recognize a deferred tax liability for a change in the status of a foreign investment, and the general methodology for computing income taxes in an interim period when year-to date loss exceeds the anticipated loss for the year. The amendments also simplify the accounting for income taxes with regard to franchise tax, evaluation of step up in the tax basis goodwill in certain business combinations, allocating current and deferred tax expense to legal entities that are not subject to tax and enacted change in tax laws or rates. The Company adopted these provisions in the first quarter of 2021 and the adoption did not have a material impact on its consolidated financial statements.

Recently Issued Accounting Standards Not Yet Adopted:

ASU No. 2020-04 — Reference Rate Reform (Topic 848). The amendments in this ASU, provides optional guidance for a limited time to ease the impact of the reference rate reform on financial reporting. The amendments, which are elective, provide expedients to contract modifications, affected by reference rate reform if certain criteria are met. The amendments apply only to contracts and hedging relationships that reference LIBOR or other reference rate that is expected to be discontinued due to reference rate reform. This ASU is effective as of March 12, 2020 through December 31, 2022 and may be applied to contract modifications and hedging relationships from the beginning of an interim period that includes or is subsequent to March 12, 2020. The Company will adopt these provisions when LIBOR is discontinued and does not expect adoption to have a material impact on its consolidated financial statements.

.3.    NET SALES

Accounting Policy:

MPC’s contract revenues are generated principally from selling: (1) fiberglass motorized boats and accessories and (2) parts to independent dealers. Revenue is recognized when obligations under the terms of a contract with our customer are satisfied. Satisfaction of contract terms occur with the transfer of title of our boats and accessories and parts to our dealers. Net sales are measured as the amount of consideration we expect to receive in exchange for transferring the goods to the dealer. The amount of consideration we expect to receive consists of the sales price adjusted for dealer incentives. The expected costs associated with our base warranties continue to be recognized as expense when the products are sold as they are deemed to be assurance-type warranties (see Note 6). Incidental promotional items that are immaterial in the context of the contract are recognized as expense. Fees charged to customers for shipping and handling are included in net sales in the accompanying consolidated statements of operations and the related costs incurred by the Company are included in cost of goods sold.

Nature of goods:

MPC’s performance obligations within its contracts consist of: (1) boats and accessories and (2) parts. The Company transfers control and recognizes revenue on the satisfaction of its performance obligations (point in time) as follows:

Boats and accessories (domestic sales) – upon delivery and acceptance by the dealer
Boats and accessories (international sales) – upon delivery to shipping port
Parts – upon shipment/delivery to carrier

Payment terms:

For most domestic customers, MPC manufactures and delivers boats and accessories and parts ahead of payment - i.e., MPC has fulfilled its performance obligations prior to submitting an invoice to the dealer. MPC invoices the customer when the products are delivered and typically receives the payment within seven to ten business days after invoicing. For some domestic customers and all international customers, MPC requires payment prior to transferring control of the goods. These amounts are classified as deferred revenue and recognized when control has transferred, which generally occurs within three months of receiving the payment.

When the Company enters into contracts with its customers, it generally expects there to be no significant timing difference between the date the goods have been delivered to the customer (satisfaction of the performance obligation) and the date cash consideration is received. Accordingly, there is no financing component to the Company’s arrangements with its customers.

Significant judgments:

Determining the transaction price

The transaction price for MPC’s boats and accessories is the invoice price adjusted for dealer incentives. Key inputs and assumptions in determining variable consideration related to dealer incentives include:

Inputs: Current model year boat sales, total potential program incentive percentage, prior model year results of dealer incentive activity (i.e., incentive earned as a percentage of total incentive potential).
Assumption: Current model year incentive activity will closely reflect prior model year actual results, adjusted as necessary for dealer purchasing trends or economic factors.

4.    EARNINGS PER SHARE

Basic and diluted earnings per share are computed by dividing net income by the weighted average number of shares outstanding during the respective periods. In addition, the Company has periodically issued share-based payment awards that contain non-forfeitable rights to dividends and are therefore considered participating securities. Restricted shares of common stock (participating securities) outstanding and a reconciliation of weighted average shares outstanding is as follows:

6.    WARRANTY COSTS AND OTHER CONTINGENCIES

Warranty Costs:

For its Chaparral and Robalo products, Marine Products provides a lifetime limited structural hull warranty and a transferable one-year limited warranty to the original owner. Chaparral also includes a five-year limited structural deck warranty. Warranties for additional items are provided for periods of one to five years and are not transferrable. Additionally, as it relates to the second subsequent owner, a five-year transferrable hull warranty and the remainder of the original one-year limited warranty on certain components are available. The five-year transferable hull warranty terminates five years after the date of the original retail purchase. Claim costs related to components are generally absorbed by the original component manufacturer.

The manufacturers of the engines, generators, and navigation electronics included on our boats provide and administer their own warranties for various lengths of time.

An analysis of the warranty accruals for the three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020 is as follows:

The warranty accruals are reflected in accrued expenses and other liabilities on the consolidated balance sheets.

Repurchase Obligations:

The Company is a party to various agreements with third party lenders that provide floor plan financing to qualifying dealers whereby the Company guarantees varying amounts of debt on boats in dealer inventory. The Company’s obligation under these guarantees becomes effective in the case of a default under the financing arrangement between the dealer and the third-party lender. The agreements provide for the return of repossessed boats to the Company in new and unused condition subject to normal wear and tear as defined, in exchange for the Company’s assumption of specified percentages of the debt obligation on those boats, up to certain contractually determined dollar limits by the lenders. The Company had no material repurchases under the contractual agreements during the three months ended March 31, 2021 and March 31, 2020.

Management continues to monitor the risk of defaults and resulting repurchase obligations based in part on information provided by third-party floor plan lenders and will adjust the guarantee liability at the end of each reporting period based on information reasonably available at that time.

The Company currently has an agreement with one of the floor plan lenders whereby the contractual repurchase limit is based on a specified percentage of the amount of the average net receivables financed by the floor plan lender for our dealers less

repurchases during the prior 12 month period, which was a net $7.0 million as of March 31, 2021. The Company has contractual repurchase agreements with additional lenders with an aggregate maximum repurchase obligation of $2.6 million with various expiration and cancellation terms of less than one year, for an aggregate repurchase obligation with all floor plan financing institutions of $9.6 million as of March 31, 2021.

7.    BUSINESS SEGMENT INFORMATION

9.  INCOME TAXES

The Company determines its periodic income tax provision based upon the current period income and the annual estimated tax rate for the Company adjusted for discrete items including tax credits and changes to prior year estimates. The estimated tax rate is adjusted, if necessary, as of the end of each successive interim period during the fiscal year to the Company’s current annual estimated tax rate.

Income tax provision for the first quarter of 2021 reflects an effective tax rate of 19.3 percent, compared to an effective rate of 14.4 percent for the comparable period in the prior year. The increase in the effective rate is primarily due to higher pre-tax income for the three months ended March 31, 2021, together with lower beneficial permanent items as well as an unfavorable adjustment related to state tax liabilities, recorded as a discrete item. The effective rate in both periods includes the effect of beneficial discrete adjustments related to vesting of restricted stock and restricted stock dividends.

10.  EMPLOYEE BENEFIT PLANS

The Company participates in a multiple employer Retirement Income Plan, sponsored by RPC, Inc. (“RPC”). The following represents the net periodic cost (benefit) and related components for the plan for the three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020.

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

(Unaudited)

In October 2020, RPC amended the Retirement Income Plan to add a limited lump-sum payment window for vested terminated participants who had terminated employment before July 1, 2020 and for active employees who reached age 59 ½ by December 1, 2020, with a vested balance. The participants could elect to receive their vested balance immediately as a lump-sum or by initiating monthly annuity payments. The lump-sum payment window offering ended during the fourth quarter of 2020 and plan assets were used to fund participant elections. The resulting non-cash settlement charges represented the accelerated recognition of actuarial losses reflected in accumulated other comprehensive income (AOCI). During the fourth quarter of 2020, a settlement loss of $0.6 million associated with the acceptance of these lump-sum payments was recorded as part of selling, general and administrative expenses in the consolidated statements of operations.

The Company permits selected highly compensated employees to defer a portion of their compensation into a non-qualified Supplemental Executive Retirement Plan (“SERP”). The Company maintains certain securities primarily in mutual funds and company-owned life insurance (“COLI”) policies as a funding source to satisfy the obligation of the SERP that have been classified as trading and are stated at fair value totaling approximately $10,851,000 as of March 31, 2021 and $10,622,000 as of December 31, 2020. Trading gains related to the SERP assets totaled approximately $63,000 during the three months ended March 31, 2021, compared to trading losses of approximately $1,078,000 during the three months ended March 31, 2020. The SERP assets are reported in other non-current assets on the consolidated balance sheets and changes to the fair value of the assets are reported in selling, general and administrative expenses in the consolidated statements of operations.

The SERP liabilities include participant deferrals net of distributions and are stated at fair value of approximately $13,209,000 as of March 31, 2021 and $12,524,000 as of December 31, 2020. The SERP liabilities are reported on the consolidated balance sheets in long-term pension liabilities and any change in the fair value is recorded as compensation cost within selling, general and administrative expenses in the consolidated statements of operations. Changes in the fair value of the SERP liabilities represented unrealized gains of approximately $163,000 during the three months ended March 31, 2021, compared to unrealized losses of approximately $1,427,000 during the three months ended March 31, 2020.

11.  FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENTS

The various inputs used to measure assets at fair value establish a hierarchy that distinguishes between assumptions based on market data (observable inputs) and the Company’s assumptions (unobservable inputs). The hierarchy consists of three broad levels as follows:

1.Level 1 – Quoted market prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.
2.Level 2 – Quoted prices for similar instruments in active markets, quoted prices for identical or similar instruments in markets that are not active, and model-based valuation techniques for which all significant assumptions are observable in the market or can be corroborated by observable market data for substantially the full term of the assets or liabilities.
3.Level 3 – Unobservable inputs developed using the Company’s estimates and assumptions, which reflect those that market participants would use.

Trading securities are comprised of SERP assets, as described in Note 10, and are recorded primarily at their net cash surrender values calculated using their net asset values, which approximate fair value, as provided by the issuing insurance company or investment company. Trading securities were $10,851,000 as of March 31, 2021 and $10,622,000 as of December 31, 2020. Significant observable inputs, in addition to quoted market prices, were used to value the trading securities. The Company’s policy is to recognize transfers between levels at the beginning of quarterly reporting periods. For the three months ended March 31, 2021 there were 0 significant transfers in or out of levels 1, 2 or 3.

The carrying amount of other financial instruments reported in the balance sheet for current assets and current liabilities approximate their fair values because of the short-term maturity of these instruments. The Company currently does not use the fair value option to measure any of its existing financial instruments and has not determined whether or not it will elect this option for financial instruments it may acquire in the future.

MARINE PRODUCTS CORPORATION AND SUBSIDIARIES

ITEM 2. MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

Marine Products Corporation, through our wholly owned subsidiaries Chaparral and Robalo, is a leading manufacturer of recreational fiberglass powerboats. Our sales and profits are generated by selling the products that we manufacture to a network of independent dealers who in turn sell the products to retail customers. These dealers are located throughout the continental United States and in several international markets. Many of these dealers finance their inventory through third-party floorplan lenders, who pay Marine Products generally within seven to ten days after delivery of the products to the dealers.

The discussion on business and financial strategies of the Company set forth under the heading “Overview” in the Company’s annual report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2020 is incorporated herein by reference. There have been no significant changes in the strategies since year-end.

In executing these strategies and attempting to optimize our financial returns, management closely monitors dealer orders and inventories, the production mix of various models, and indications of near term demand such as consumer confidence, interest rates, dealer orders placed at our annual dealer conferences, and retail attendance and orders at annual winter boat show exhibitions. We also consider trends related to certain key financial and other data, including our historical and forecasted financial results, market share, unit sales of our products, average selling price per boat, and gross profit margins, among others, as indicators of the success of our strategies. Our financial results are affected by consumer confidence — because pleasure boating is a discretionary expenditure, interest rates — because many retail customers finance the purchase of their boats, and other socioeconomic and environmental factors such as availability of leisure time, consumer preferences, demographics and the weather.

Our net sales of $78.4 million were 32.6 percent higher during the first quarter of 2021 compared to the first quarter of 2020 primarily due to a 17.9 percent increase in number of units sold as well as an increase in average selling price per boat. Unit sales increased in all our major product categories during the first quarter of 2021 in comparison to the same period of the prior year. Average selling price per boat during the first quarter of 2021 increased by 15.5 percent due to a favorable model mix which included more of our larger boats.

Operating income of $10.0 million increased 106.5 percent during the first quarter of 2021 compared to the same period in the prior year primarily due to higher net sales. Selling, general and administrative expenses increased 16.3 percent during the first quarter of 2021 as compared to the same period in the prior year primarily due to costs that vary with sales and profitability, such as incentive compensation, commissions and warranty expense, partially offset by marketing cost savings during the first quarter of 2021. Dealer inventory in units as of March 31, 2021 was significantly lower than at the first quarter of 2020 due to strong consumer demand, but higher than at the end of the fourth quarter of 2020.

OUTLOOK

The discussion of the outlook for 2021 is incorporated herein by reference from the Company’s annual report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2020.

We believe that retail demand for new recreational boats during 2021 will be higher than demand in 2020 due to the impact on consumer preferences caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. The Company believes that recreational boating’s appeal to U.S. consumers is growing because people perceive it to be a safe outdoor activity which does not involve large groups of people. During 2020, many consumers chose recreational boating when they temporarily left urban areas to spend time in vacation homes or in smaller groups, often located near recreational bodies of water.

MARINE PRODUCTS CORPORATION AND SUBSIDIARIES

Preliminary industry data indicate that retail boat sales in 2020 exceeded boat sales generated during the previous cyclical peak in 2007. Fluctuations in fuel prices can impact our industry, and although they declined in 2020, they increased significantly during the first quarter of 2021 and may impact consumers’ boat purchasing decisions. In general, the overall cost of boat ownership has increased over the last several years, especially in the sterndrive recreational boat market segment, which comprised approximately 37 percent of the Company’s unit sales during the three months ended March 31, 2021. The higher cost of boat ownership can discourage consumers from purchasing recreational boats. For years, Marine Products and other boat manufacturers have been improving their customer service capabilities, marketing strategies and sales promotions to attract more consumers to recreational boating as well as improve consumers’ boating experiences. The Company provides financial incentives to its dealers for receiving favorable customer satisfaction surveys. In addition, the recreational boating industry conducts a promotional program which involves advertising and consumer targeting efforts, as well as other activities designed to increase the potential consumer market for pleasure boats. Many manufacturers, including Marine Products, participate in this program. Management believes that these efforts have incrementally benefited the industry and Marine Products. As in past years, Marine Products enhanced its selection of models for the 2021 model year which began on July 1, 2020 by broadening the size range of its product offerings and adding several new models. In a typical year, Marine Products and its dealers present our new models to retail customers during the winter boat show season, which takes place during the fourth and first calendar quarters. During the 2021 model year, however, most winter boat shows were cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As a result of these cancellations, the Company and its dealers have replaced their physical boat show presences with virtual marketing efforts. The Company believes that these efforts are effective and competitive with our peers. For the new model year, we continue to emphasize our larger Robalo center console models. In addition, we have introduced two larger Chaparral SSX and Surf Series models for the 2021 model year. We believe that these boat models appeal to our customer base and dealer network. We plan to continue to develop and produce additional new products for subsequent model years.

Due to strong demand across the recreational sector, key materials and components are in tight supply. These supply chain disruptions will impact our production and sales growth in the second quarter.

Our financial results will depend on a number of factors, including our ability to meet dealer and consumer demand in the face of ongoing supply chain disruptions which may impact our manufacturing operations, the health of American consumers and economic recovery from the pandemic, potential changes in consumer behavior as society recovers from the pandemic, interest rates, the availability of credit to our dealers and consumers, fuel costs, the continued acceptance of our new products in the recreational boating market, the near-term effectiveness of our marketing efforts, the availability and cost of labor and certain of our raw materials and key components used in manufacturing our products.

THREE MONTHS ENDED MARCH 31, 2021 COMPARED TO THREE MONTHS ENDED MARCH 31, 2020

Net sales for the three months ended March 31, 2021 increased $19.3 million or 32.6 percent compared to the same period in 2020. The change in net sales during the quarter compared to the prior year was due primarily to a 17.9 percent increase in the number of units sold as well as a 15.5 percent increase in the average gross selling price per boat. Unit sales increased in all our major product categories during the first quarter of 2021 compared to the prior year. Average selling price per boat during the first quarter of 2021 compared to the first quarter of 2020 increased due to a favorable model mix which included more of our larger boats. Domestic net sales increased 33.4 percent to $74.4 million and international sales increased 18.4 percent to $4.0 million compared to the first quarter of the prior year. In the first quarter of 2021, net sales outside of the United States accounted for 5.1 percent of net sales compared to 5.7 percent of net sales in the first quarter of 2020. International sales remain low due in part to continued tariffs imposed on boat imports into Mexico and the European Union.

Cost of goods sold for the three months ended March 31, 2021 was $59.9 million compared to $47.0 million for the comparable period in 2020, an increase of $12.9 million or 27.4 percent. Cost of goods sold as a percentage of net sales decreased to 76.4 percent of net sales for the three months ended March 31, 2021 from 79.5 percent for the comparable period in 2020, primarily due to manufacturing efficiencies resulting from higher production and a favorable model mix consisting of larger boats.

Selling, general and administrative expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2021 were $8.4 million compared to $7.3 million for the comparable period in 2020, an increase of $1.1 million or 16.3 percent. This increase was primarily due to costs that vary with sales and profitability, such as incentive compensation, commissions, and warranty expense, partially offset by marketing cost savings during the first quarter of 2021. Selling, general and administrative expenses as a percentage of net sales were 10.8 percent in the first quarter of 2021 compared to 12.3 percent in the first quarter of 2020.

Operating income for the three months ended March 31, 2021 increased $5.2 million or 106.5 percent compared to the same period in 2020 primarily due to higher net sales and gross profit, partially offset by an increase in selling, general and administrative expenses.

Interest income for the three months ended March 31, 2021 decreased $53 thousand or 86.9 percent compared to the prior year. Marine Products generates interest income primarily from investments in money market funds. The decrease was primarily due to a lower percentage yield partially offset by a higher average balance of cash and cash equivalents.

Income tax provision for the first quarter of 2021 reflects an effective tax rate of 19.3 percent compared to an effective tax rate of 14.4 percent for the comparable period in the prior year. The effective tax rates in 2021 and 2020 include the effect of beneficial permanent differences as well as discrete adjustments related to vesting of restricted stock and restricted stock dividends. The increase in the 2021 effective tax rate is primarily due to a higher pre-tax income for the quarter and an unfavorable discrete adjustment related to state tax liabilities in the first quarter of 2021 compared to the same period of 2020.

LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES

Cash Flows

The Company’s cash and cash equivalents at March 31, 2021 were $35.0 million compared to $31.6 million at December 31, 2020.

The following table sets forth the cash flows for the applicable periods:

Cash provided by operating activities for the three months ended March 31, 2021 increased $2.1 million compared to the same period in 2020. This increase is primarily due to an increase in net income partially offset by an unfavorable change in working capital.

19

Table of Contents

MARINE PRODUCTS CORPORATION AND SUBSIDIARIES

The major components of the net unfavorable change in working capital for the three months ended March 31, 2021 were as follows: an unfavorable change of $3.0 million in accounts receivable due to higher revenues and the timing of receipts in comparison to the prior year; an unfavorable change of $0.6 million in income taxes receivable due to the timing of estimated tax payments; an unfavorable change of $3.6 million in inventories primarily due to the timing of shipments of finished boats and receipts of raw materials and key components; partially offset by a $4.8 million favorable change in accounts payable due to increased production; and a favorable change of $1.0 million in other accrued expenses.

Cash used for investing activities for the three months ended March 31, 2021 was $0.2 million compared to $0.7 million for the same period in 2020. The favorable change in cash used for investing activities is primarily due to a decrease in capital expenditures during the three months ended March 31, 2021 in comparison to the same period of the prior year.

Cash used for financing activities for the three months ended March 31, 2021 decreased $0.7 million compared to the three months ended March 31, 2020 primarily due to lower dividends paid to common shareholders compared to the three months ended March 31, 2020.

Financial Condition and Liquidity

The Company believes that the liquidity provided by existing cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities, its overall strong capitalization and cash generated by operations will provide sufficient capital to meet the Company’s requirements for at least the next twelve months. The Company’s decisions about the amount of cash to be used for investing and financing purposes are influenced by its capital position and the expected amount of cash to be provided by operations.

Cash Requirements

The Company currently expects that capital expenditures in 2021 will be approximately $2.7 million, of which $0.2 million has been spent through March 31, 2021.

The Company participates in a multiple employer Retirement Income Plan, sponsored by RPC, Inc. (“RPC”). The Company did not contribute to this plan during the first quarter of 2021 and does not expect to make any contributions for the remainder of 2021.

The Company has repurchased an aggregate total of 6,679,572 shares in the open market under the Company stock repurchase program, which began in 2002. As of March 31, 2021, there are 1,570,428 shares that remain available for repurchase under the current authorization. There were no shares repurchased under this program during the first quarter of 2021.

On April 27, 2021, the Board of Directors declared a regular quarterly cash dividend of $0.12 per share payable June 10, 2021 to common stockholders of record at the close of business May 10, 2021. The Company expects to continue to pay cash dividends to common stockholders, subject to industry conditions and Marine Products’ earnings, financial condition, and other relevant factors.

OFF BALANCE SHEET ARRANGEMENTS

To assist dealers in obtaining financing for the purchase of its boats for inventory, the Company has entered into agreements with various third-party floor plan lenders whereby the Company guarantees varying amounts of debt for qualifying dealers on boats in inventory. The Company’s obligation under these guarantees becomes effective in the case of a default under the financing arrangement between the dealer and the third-party lender. The agreements provide for the return of all repossessed boats to the Company in a new and unused condition as defined, in exchange for the Company’s assumption of specified percentages of the debt obligation on those boats, up to certain contractually determined dollar limits which vary by lender. The Company had no material repurchases of dealer inventory during the three months ended March 31, 2021 and March 31, 2020.

Management continues to monitor the risk of defaults and resulting repurchase obligations based in part on information provided by the third-party floor plan lenders and will adjust the guarantee liability at the end of each reporting period based on information reasonably available at that time.

20

Table of Contents

MARINE PRODUCTS CORPORATION AND SUBSIDIARIES

The Company currently has an agreement with one of the floor plan lenders whereby the contractual repurchase limit is based on a specified percentage of the amount of the average net receivables financed by the floor plan lender for our dealers less repurchases during the prior 12 month period, which was a net $7.0 million as of March 31, 2021. The Company has contractual repurchase agreements with additional lenders with an aggregate maximum repurchase obligation of approximately $2.6 million with various expiration and cancellation terms of less than one year, for an aggregate repurchase obligation with all financing institutions of approximately $9.6 million as of March 31, 2021.

RELATED PARTY TRANSACTIONS

In conjunction with its spin-off from RPC in 2001, the Company and RPC entered into various agreements that define their relationship after the spin-off. RPC charged the Company for its allocable share of administrative costs incurred for services rendered on behalf of Marine Products totaling approximately $219 thousand for the three months ended March 31, 2021 and approximately $217 thousand for the three months ended March 31, 2020.

CRITICAL ACCOUNTING POLICIES

The discussion of Critical Accounting Policies is incorporated herein by reference from the Company’s annual report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2020. There have been no significant changes in the critical accounting policies since year-end.

IMPACT OF RECENT ACCOUNTING PRONOUNCEMENTS

See Note 2 of the Consolidated Financial Statements for a description of recent accounting pronouncements, including the expected dates of adoption and expected effects on results of operations and financial condition, if known.

SEASONALITY

Marine Products’ quarterly operating results are affected by weather and general economic conditions. Quarterly operating results for the second quarter have historically recorded the highest sales volume for the year because this corresponds with the highest retail sales volume period. The results for any quarter are not necessarily indicative of results to be expected in any future period.

INFLATION

The market prices of certain materials used in manufacturing the Company’s products, especially resins that are made with hydrocarbon feedstocks, copper and steel, have at certain periods been volatile. During the first and second quarters of 2020, the prices of many of these commodities declined due to the global economic slowdown caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. During the third and fourth quarters of 2020 and the first quarter of 2021, however, the prices of oil, copper and stainless steel have increased. The Company also purchases components of which there are a limited number of suppliers, some of whom temporarily suspended their manufacturing operations due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It is possible that the cost of these components will increase as demand from recreational boat manufacturers increases. These higher component prices would increase the costs of manufacturing the Company’s products and could negatively affect our profit margins.

New boat buyers typically finance their purchases. Higher inflation typically results in higher interest rates that could translate into an increased cost of boat ownership. In the event that interest rates rise, or lending standards for consumer loans become more stringent, prospective buyers may choose to forego or delay their purchases or buy a less expensive boat in the event that interest rates rise or credit is not available to finance their boat purchases. Early in 2021, the Company believes that inflation in the general economy is becoming a risk, but that interest rates will remain low due to accommodative monetary policy.

The words “may,” “should,” “will,” “expect,” “believe,” “anticipate,” “intend,” “plan,” “seek,” “project,” “estimate,” and similar expressions used in this document that do not relate to historical facts are intended to identify forward-looking statements. Such statements are based on certain assumptions and analyses made by our management in light of its experience and its perception of historical trends, current conditions, expected future developments and other factors it believes to be appropriate. We caution you that such statements are only predictions and not guarantees of future performance and that actual results, developments and business decisions may differ from those envisioned by the forward-looking statements. Risk factors that could cause such future events not to occur as expected include the following: the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the economy, our manufacturing operations and our supply chain; economic conditions, unavailability of credit and possible decreases in the level of consumer confidence impacting discretionary spending; business interruptions due to adverse weather conditions, increased interest rates, unanticipated changes in consumer demand and preferences, deterioration in the quality of Marine Products’ network of independent boat dealers or availability of financing of their inventory; our ability to insulate financial results against increasing commodity prices; the impact of rising gasoline prices and a weak housing market on consumer demand for our products; competition from other boat manufacturers and dealers; potential liabilities for personal injury or property damage claims relating to the use of our products; our ability to successfully identify suitable acquisition candidates or strategic partners, obtain financing on satisfactory terms, complete acquisitions or strategic alliances, integrate acquired operations into our existing operations, or expand into new markets; changes in various government laws and regulations, including environmental regulations and recent U.S. Government action concerning tariffs on goods; the possibility of retaliatory tariffs imposed on the export of our products to countries on which the U.S. has imposed tariffs; the higher prices of materials, such as hydrocarbon feedstocks, copper, and steel, would increase the costs of manufacturing our products, and could negatively affect our profit margins; higher inflation, which typically results in higher interest rates that could translate into an increased cost of boat ownership and prospective buyers may choose to forego or delay boat purchases; and the existence of certain anti-takeover provisions in our governance documents, which could make a tender offer, change in control or takeover attempt that is opposed by Marine Products’ Board of Directors more difficult or expensive. Additional discussion of factors that could cause actual results to differ from management’s projections, forecasts, estimates and expectations is contained in Marine Products Form 10-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission for the year ended December 31, 2020 and elsewhere in this Form 10-Q.

ITEM 3. QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK

Marine Products holds no derivative financial instruments which could expose the Company to significant market risk. Marine Products maintains investments primarily in money market funds which are not subject to interest rate risk exposure. Marine Products does not expect any material changes in market risk exposures or how those risks are managed.

ITEM 4. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

Evaluation of disclosure controls and procedures – The Company maintains disclosure controls and procedures that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in its Exchange Act reports is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the Commission’s rules and forms, and that such information is accumulated and communicated to its management, including the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, as appropriate, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.
