ITEM 1.NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (UNAUDITED)

(Amounts in tables in thousands of dollars)

NOTE 1 - BASIS OF PRESENTATION OF FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

The accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“U.S. GAAP”) for interim financial information and in accordance with the instructions to Form 10-Q and do not include all of the information and footnotes required by U.S. GAAP for complete financial statements. The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of The Gorman-Rupp Company (the “Company” or “Gorman-Rupp”) and its wholly-owned subsidiaries. All significant intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated. In the opinion of management of the Company, all adjustments considered necessary for a fair presentation have been included. Operating results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2017 are not necessarily indicative of results that may be expected for the year ending December 31, 2017. For further information, refer to the consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2016, from which related information herein has been derived.

NOTE 2 - RECENTLY ISSUED ACCOUNTING STANDARDS

The Company considers the applicability and impact of all Accounting Standard Updates (“ASUs”). ASUs not listed below were assessed and determined either to be not applicable or are expected to have minimal impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

In March 2017, the FASB issued ASU No. 2017-07, “Compensation – Retirement Benefits (Topic 715) – Improving the Presentation of Net Periodic Pension Cost and Net Periodic Postretirement Benefit Cost,” which provides additional guidance on the presentation of net periodic pension and postretirement benefit costs in the income statement and on the components eligible for capitalization. The amendments in this ASU require that an employer report the service cost component of the net periodic benefit costs in the same income statement line item as other compensation costs arising from services rendered by employees during the period. The non-service-cost components of net periodic benefit costs are to be presented in the income statement separately from the service cost components and outside a subtotal of income from operations. The ASU also allows for the capitalization of the service cost components, when applicable (i.e., as a cost of internally manufactured inventory or a self-constructed asset). The ASU is effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those years, beginning after December 15, 2017 and early adoption is permitted. The amendments in this ASU are to be applied retrospectively. The adoption of ASU 2017-07 will result in a change within operating income with a corresponding change in other income (expense), net to reflect the impact of presenting all components of net benefit cost, except for service cost, outside of operating income. See Note 6 for the components of the Company’s net benefit costs. The Company does not expect the adoption of ASU-2017-07 to have a material impact on its consolidated financial statements.

In January 2017, the FASB issued ASU No. 2017-04, “Intangibles – Goodwill and Other (Topic 350) – Simplifying the Test for Goodwill Impairment,” which eliminates the requirement to calculate the implied fair value of goodwill to measure a goodwill impairment charge. Instead, entities will record an impairment charge based on the excess of a reporting unit’s carrying amount over its fair value. The ASU is effective for impairment tests performed in fiscal years, and interim periods within those years, beginning after December 15, 2019 and early adoption is permitted. The amendments in this ASU are to be applied on a prospective basis. The Company early adopted this new guidance during the three months ended September 30, 2017. The Company concluded that ASU 2017-04 is preferable to the current guidance due to efficiency, since ASU 2017-04 eliminates the requirement to determine the fair value of individual assets and liabilities of a reporting unit to measure goodwill impairment. The Company believes the adoption of ASU 2017-04 did not change the amount of impairment charges recorded in the third quarter of 2017. See Note 8 – Impairment Charges for additional information on our interim goodwill and other intangible asset impairment tests performed.

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-02, “Leases (Topic 842),” which requires lessees to recognize assets and liabilities on the balance sheet for the rights and obligations created by all leases with a term of more than one year. Accounting by lessors will remain similar to existing U.S. GAAP. The guidance is effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those years, beginning after December 15, 2018 and early adoption is permitted. The Company currently does not expect the adoption of ASU 2016-02 will have a material impact on its consolidated financial statements as its future minimum lease commitments are not material.

Table of Contents

In May 2014, the FASB issued ASU 2014-09, “Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606),” which supersedes most current revenue recognition guidance, including industry-specific guidance, and requires entities to recognize revenue in a way that depicts the transfer of promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the entity expects to be entitled to in exchange for those goods or services. Subsequent accounting standards updates have been issued, which amend and/or clarify the application of ASU 2014-09. The guidance is effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those years, beginning after December 15, 2017. The Company is still finalizing its assessment of this ASU, but it does not currently expect it to have a material impact on its consolidated financial statements. Based on the evaluation of its current revenue streams and contracts, most will be recorded consistently under both the current and new standard. The Company has determined it will use the modified retrospective method as its transition method in the adoption of the new revenue standard. The Company will continue to accumulate information that will be necessary for implementation and to identify and implement any changes needed to processes and controls to meet the ASU’s updated reporting and disclosure requirements. The Company will continue its evaluation of this new guidance through the date of adoption.

NOTE 3 - INVENTORIES

Inventories are stated at the lower of cost or market. The costs for approximately 72% of inventories at September 30, 2017 and December 31, 2016 are determined using the last-in, first-out (“LIFO”) method, with the remainder determined using the first-in, first-out (FIFO) method applied on a consistent basis. Replacement cost approximates current cost and the excess over LIFO cost was approximately $59.7 million and $58.4 million at September 30, 2017 and December 31, 2016, respectively. An actual valuation of inventory under the LIFO method is made at the end of each year based on the inventory levels and costs at that time. Interim LIFO calculations are based on management’s estimate of expected year-end inventory levels and costs and are subject to the final year-end LIFO inventory valuation.

Allowances for excess and obsolete inventory totaled $4.9 million and $4.5 million at September 30, 2017 and December 31, 2016, respectively.

The major components of net inventories are as follows:

NOTE 6 - PENSION AND OTHER POSTRETIREMENT BENEFITS

The Company sponsors a defined benefit pension plan (“Plan”) covering certain domestic employees. Benefits are based on each covered employee’s years of service and compensation. The Plan is funded in conformity with the funding requirements of applicable U.S. regulations. The Plan was closed to new participants effective January 1, 2008. Employees hired after this date, in eligible locations, participate in an enhanced 401(k) plan instead of the Plan. Employees hired prior to this date continue to accrue benefits.

Additionally, the Company sponsors defined contribution pension plans made available to all domestic and Canadian employees. The Company funds the cost of these benefits as incurred.

The Company also sponsors a non-contributory defined benefit postretirement health care plan that provides health benefits to certain domestic and Canadian retirees and their spouses. The Company funds the cost of these benefits as incurred.

NOTE 8 – IMPAIRMENT CHARGES

The decreasing demand for barge pumps for the marine transportation market, driven by low oil prices and overcapacity of inland barges, has continued to negatively affect the Bayou City Pump Company (“Bayou”) reporting unit, leading management to reconsider its estimates for future profitability of this reporting unit during the third quarter of 2017 and thereby increasing the likelihood that the associated goodwill and other intangible assets could be impaired. As such, the Company performed an interim discounted cash flow analysis to test for potential impairment of goodwill pursuant to ASU 2017-04 and performed a recoverability test related to Bayou’s customer relationship intangible asset. As a result of these impairment tests, the Company concluded that the goodwill and customer relationships were impaired and recorded non-cash impairment charges of $0.9 million and $3.2 million, respectively, which represented the full remaining amounts of both of these intangible assets. These impairment charges are included in Impairment of goodwill and other intangible assets on the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income.

 

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

(Amounts in tables in thousands of dollars)

Executive Overview

The following discussion of Results of Operations includes certain non-GAAP financial data, and measures such as adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization and adjusted earnings per share amounts which exclude a 2017 non-cash pension settlement charge and non-cash impairment charges relating to goodwill and other intangible assets. Management utilizes these adjusted financial data and measures to assess comparative operations against those of prior periods without the distortion of non-comparable factors. The Gorman-Rupp Company believes that these non-GAAP financial data and measures will be useful to investors as well as to assess the continuing strength of the Company’s underlying operations from period to period. Provided below is a reconciliation of adjusted earnings per share amounts and adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization.

Outlook

Domestic and foreign uncertainties, including instability related to the production and price of oil and low commodity prices have made 2017 challenging. In addition, with the completion of the PCCP project, comparisons of revenue with 2016 will need to be appropriately adjusted during 2017. Overall business conditions have continued to improve and we are optimistic about our incoming order rate. We are also encouraged to see capital spending increase in industries related to oil and gas drilling activity and are hopeful the momentum is sustainable. The Company remains focused on operational efficiencies and will continue to manage expenses closely. Our underlying fundamentals remain strong and we remain well positioned to drive long-term growth. Our strong balance sheet provides us with the flexibility to continue to evaluate acquisition opportunities and new product development that we expect will help add value to our operations over the longer-term.

Sales in the fire protection market decreased $5.1 million principally due to market softness domestically and in the Middle East, and sales in the agriculture market decreased $1.6 million principally due to low farm income and competitive pricing pressure. Sales in the municipal market decreased $3.0 million principally driven by decreased shipments attributable to flood control projects.

Sales in the first nine months of 2017 in our non-water markets increased 7.2% or $6.0 million compared to the first nine months of 2016. Sales increased $5.4 million in the industrial market driven by an increase in oil and gas drilling activity. Sales in the OEM market increased $2.6 million primarily related to power generation equipment and services and infrastructure spending driven by gas production. These increases were partially offset by decreased shipments of $2.0 million in the petroleum market driven by challenging market conditions.

Table of Contents

The decrease in net income in the first nine months of 2017 compared to the first nine months of 2016 was due primarily to increased gross profit offset by a non-cash pension settlement charge in the first nine months of 2017 of $2.6 million, net of income taxes, and non-cash impairment charges of $2.7 million, net of income taxes. The decrease in the effective tax rate between the two periods was due primarily to the impact of lower income in domestic jurisdictions with higher tax rates driven by the goodwill and other intangible asset impairment charges.

Earnings per share for the first nine months of 2017 included non-cash impairment charges of $0.10 per share and a non-cash pension settlement charge of $0.10 per share. Conversely, the first nine months of 2016 included a gain on the sale of property, plant and equipment of $0.03 per share.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

Cash and cash equivalents totaled $76.0 million and there was no outstanding bank debt at September 30, 2017. In addition, the Company had $22.3 million available in bank lines of credit after deducting $8.7 million in outstanding letters of credit primarily related to customer orders. The Company was in compliance with its debt covenants, including limits on additional borrowings and maintenance of certain operating and financial ratios, at September 30, 2017 and December 31, 2016.

Working capital increased $23.3 million from December 31, 2016 to $177.8 million at September 30, 2017. The increase in working capital was due principally to positive operating results and related increased inventory, and reduced commissions payable driven by product mix and timing of payments.

Free cash flow, a non-GAAP financial measure for reporting cash flow, is defined by the Company as adjusted earnings before interest, income taxes and depreciation and amortization, less capital expenditures and dividends. The Company believes free cash flow provides the Company and investors with an important perspective on cash available for investments, acquisitions and working capital requirements.

The following table reconciles adjusted earnings before interest, income taxes and depreciation and amortization as reconciled above to free cash flow:

The primary drivers of operating cash flows during the first nine months of 2017 were operating income partially offset by reduced commissions payable due to product mix and timing of payments. During this same period in 2016, operating cash flows were primarily driven by reduced inventories and increased customer deposits partially offset by $8.0 million of contributions to the pension plan.

During the first nine months of 2017, investing activities of $7.5 million primarily consisted of a $3.0 million increase in short-term investments and $4.8 million of capital expenditures for machinery and equipment offset by $0.3 million of proceeds from the sale of property, plant and equipment. Capital expenditures for the full-year 2017 are presently planned to be in the range of $6 to $8 million and are expected to be financed through internally-generated funds. During the first nine months of 2016, investing activities of $4.3 million primarily consisted of capital expenditures for machinery and equipment, a new operations facility in Africa, and other building improvements totaling $5.6 million offset by proceeds from the sale of property, plant, and equipment of $1.3 million.

Net cash used for financing activities for the first nine months of 2017 and 2016 consisted of dividend payments of $9.0 million and $8.2 million, respectively.

On October 26, 2017, the Board of Directors of the Company declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.125 per share on the common stock of the Company, payable December 8, 2017, to shareholders of record November 15, 2017. The cash dividend will represent an 8.7% increase over the dividend paid in the previous quarter. This will mark the 271st consecutive quarterly dividend paid by The Gorman-Rupp Company and the 45th consecutive year of increased dividends paid to its shareholders.

The Company currently expects to continue its exceptional history of paying regular quarterly dividends and increased annual dividends. However, any future dividends will be reviewed individually and declared by our Board of Directors at its discretion, dependent on our assessment of the Company’s financial condition and business outlook at the applicable time.

Critical Accounting Policies

Our critical accounting policies are described in Item 7, Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations, and in the notes to our Consolidated Financial Statements for the year ended December 31, 2016 contained in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2016.
