1st 9 mos. 2021 FINANCIAL RESULTS GROSS MARGIN 1st 9 mos. 2021 sales reflects increases within transportation (+$34.3M) and industrial (+$14.4M), partly offset by lower energy end market sales (-$31.9M) 1st 9 mos. 2021 gross profit declined by $8.1M; gross margin down 3.1 percentage points Gross margin impacted by material cost increases, unfavorable product mix, and higher tariff and freight costs, partly mitigated by lower warranty expense, the impact of higher sales and cost savings driven by actions to improve manufacturing operations Warranty costs were $14.8M in 2021 period versus $18.2M in 2020 Loss before income taxes of $41.2M, as compared to a loss of $23.7M last year In addition to gross profit impact, key factors impacting results were higher operating expenses and interest expense of $7.7M and $1.0M, respectively, coupled with lower other income of $1.2M SALES $ in millions

Slide 30

Outlook During the fourth quarter of 2021, the Company believes that its sales will exhibit healthy year-over-year growth with contributions across all end markets An improvement in gross profit as a percentage of sales in the fourth quarter versus the third quarter is also projected With the conclusion of the USAO trial involving former officers and employees of the Company in September 2021, the Company believes its costs related to this matter will cease. Accordingly, the Company expects to experience a decline in legal costs related to this obligation during the fourth quarter However, at this time, the Company is not able to estimate the potential future amount of its indemnity obligations related to the pending SEC matter involving prior officers and employees Notwithstanding this outlook, which is being driven in part by expectations for improved economic conditions within the United States and across various of the Company’s markets, the Company cautions that significant uncertainty still remains as a result of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, supply chain challenges, and other factors OUTLOOK

NON-GAAP RECONCILIATION Financial Results for Three and Nine Months Ended September 30, 2021 and 2020 (UNAUDITED) * See Non-GAAP Reconciliation on following slides

Slide 34

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES In addition to the results provided in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“U.S. GAAP”), this presentation also includes non-GAAP (adjusted) financial measures. Non-GAAP financial measures provide insight into selected financial information and should be evaluated in the context in which they are presented. These non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as analytical tools and should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information presented in compliance with U.S. GAAP, and non-GAAP financial measures as reported by the Company may not be comparable to similarly titled amounts reported by other companies. The non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements, including the related notes, and Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations included in the Company’s Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended September 30, 2021.  Management does not use these non-GAAP financial measures for any purpose other than the reasons stated below. The Company believes that Adjusted net income (loss), Adjusted earnings (loss) per share, EBITDA, and Adjusted EBITDA provide relevant and useful information, which is widely used by analysts, investors and competitors in its industry as well as by the Company’s management in assessing the performance of the Company. Adjusted net income (loss) is defined as net income (loss) as adjusted for certain items that the Company believes are not indicative of its ongoing operating performance. Adjusted earnings (loss) per share is a measure of the Company’s diluted earnings (loss) per common share adjusted for the impact of special items. EBITDA provides the Company with an understanding of earnings before the impact of investing and financing charges and income taxes. Adjusted EBITDA further excludes the effects of other non-cash charges and certain other items that do not reflect the ordinary earnings of the Company’s operations. Adjusted net income (loss), Adjusted earnings (loss) per share, EBITDA, and Adjusted EBITDA are used by management for various purposes, including as a measure of performance of the Company’s operations and as a basis for strategic planning and forecasting. Adjusted net income (loss), Adjusted earnings (loss) per share, and Adjusted EBITDA may be useful to an investor because these measures are widely used to evaluate companies’ operating performance without regard to items excluded from the calculation of such measures, which can vary substantially from company to company depending on the accounting methods, the book value of assets, the capital structure and the method by which the assets were acquired, among other factors. They are not, however, intended as alternative measures of operating results or cash flow from operations as determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP.

Slide 38

NON-GAAP RECONCILIATION Amounts reflect non-cash stock-based compensation expense. Amount represents the loss on the extinguishment of the Company’s prior credit facility with Wells Fargo Bank, N.A. and the unsecured senior notes in April 2020. Amounts represent severance and other post-employment costs for certain former employees of the Company. Amounts represent professional services fees related to the Company’s efforts to prepare, audit and file delinquent financial statements with the SEC, as well as tax compliance matters impacted by the restatement of prior period financial statements. The amounts exclude $0.1 million and $1.0 million for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020. Amounts represent professional services fees related to the Company’s efforts to remediate internal control material weaknesses including certain costs to upgrade IT systems. Amounts include professional services fees for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021 of $1.6 million and $15.2 million, respectively, and $1.7 million and $5.5 million for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020, respectively, related to costs to indemnify certain former officers and employees of the Company. The Company is obligated to pay legal costs of certain former officers and employees in accordance with Company bylaws and certain indemnification agreements. As further discussed in Note 9. Commitments and Contingencies of Part I, Item 1. Financial Statements within the Company’s Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended September 30, 2021, the Company fully exhausted its historical primary directors’ and officers’ insurance coverage in connection with these matters during the first quarter of 2020. Also included are professional services fees and reserves related to certain other legal matters. Amount represents a life insurance payment to the Company related to the death of a former employee. Amounts for all periods include adjustments to impacts of the CARES Act; the nine months ended September 30, 2020 also include a change in the deferred tax liability related to an indefinite lived intangible asset.
