NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (UNAUDITED)

(Amounts in tables in thousands of dollars, except for per share amounts)

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 Form10-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 months ended March 31, 2020 are not necessarily indicative of results that may be expected for the year ending December 31, 2020. For further information, refer to the Consolidated Financial Statements and accompanying notes included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019, 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 December 2019, the FASB issued ASU2019-12, “Simplifying the Accounting for Income Taxes”, which, as part of its Simplification Initiative to reduce the cost and complexity in accounting for income taxes, removes certain exceptions related to the approach for intra-period tax allocation, the methodology for calculating income taxes in an interim period and the recognition of deferred tax liabilities for outside basis differences. ASU2019-12 also amends other aspects of the guidance to help simplify and promote consistent application of GAAP. The guidance is effective for interim and annual periods beginning after December 15, 2020, with early adoption permitted. The Company currently does not expect the adoption of ASU2019-12 will have a material impact on the Company’s Consolidated Financial Statements.

In August 2018, the FASB issued ASU2018-14, “Compensation-Retirement Benefits-Defined Benefit Plans-General (Topic715-20): Disclosure Framework-Changes to the Disclosure Requirements for Defined Benefit Plans”, which improves disclosure requirements for employers that sponsor defined benefit pension or other postretirement plans. This standard is effective for fiscal years ending after December 15, 2020, for public business entities. Early adoption is permitted for all entities. An entity should apply the amendments in this Update on a retrospective basis to all periods presented. The Company currently does not expect the adoption of ASU2019-12 will have a material impact on the Company’s Consolidated Financial Statements.

Recently Adopted Accounting Standards

In June 2016, the FASB issued ASU2016-13, “Financial Instruments-Credit Losses (Topic 326): Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments”, which replaced the incurred loss impairment methodology under current GAAP with a methodology that reflects expected credit losses and requires consideration of a broader range of reasonable and supportable information to inform credit loss estimates. ASU2016-13 requires use of a forward-looking expected credit loss model for accounts receivables, loans, and other financial instruments. ASU2016-13 is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019, with early adoption permitted. Adoption of the standard requires using a modified retrospective approach through a cumulative-effect adjustment to retained earnings as of the effective date to align existing credit loss methodology with the new standard. In November 2019, the FASB issued ASU2019-11, Codification Improvements to Topic 326, Financial Instruments—Credit Losses. ASU2019-11 requires entities that did not adopt the amendments in ASU2016-13 as of November 2019 to adopt ASU2019-11. This ASU contains the same effective dates and transition requirements as ASU2016-13. The Company adopted Topic 326 effective January 1, 2020. The impact of adoption of these standards was not material on the Company’s Consolidated Financial Statements.

International sales represented approximately 29% and 30% of total net sales for the first quarter of 2020 and 2019, respectively, and were made to customers in many different countries around the world.

Performance Obligations

A performance obligation is a promise in a contract to transfer a distinct good or service to a customer, and is the unit of account in ASC Topic 606. The transaction price for a customer contract is allocated to each distinct performance obligation and recognized as revenue when, or as, the Company’s performance obligation is satisfied. For product sales, other than long-term construction-type contracts, the Company recognizes revenue once control has passed at a point in time, which is generally when products are shipped. Payments received for product sales typically occur following delivery and the satisfaction of the performance obligation based upon the terms outlined in the contracts. Substantially all of our customer contracts are fixed-price contracts and the majority of our customer contracts have a single performance obligation, as the promise to transfer the individual products or services is not separately identifiable from other promises in the contract. For customer contracts with multiple performance obligations, the Company allocates revenue to each performance obligation based on its relative standalone selling price, which is generally determined based on standalone selling prices charged to customers or using expected cost plus margin.

All of the Company’s performance obligations, and associated revenue, are generally transferred to customers at a point in time, with the exception of certain highly customized pump products, which are transferred to the customer over time. The Company’s method for recognizing revenue over time is the percentage of completion method, whereby progress towards completion is measured by applying an input measure based on costs incurred to date relative to total estimated costs at completion.

The Company offers standard warranties for its products to ensure that its products comply with agreed-upon specifications in its contracts. For standard warranties, these do not give rise to performance obligations and represent assurance-type warranties.

Shipping and handling activities related to products sold to customers, whether performed before or after the customer obtains control of the products, are generally accounted for as activities to fulfill the promise to transfer the products and not as a separate performance obligation.

On March 31, 2020, the Company had $113.8 million of remaining performance obligations, also referred to as backlog. The Company expects to recognize as revenue substantially all of its remaining performance obligations within one year.

Contract Estimates

Accounting for long-term contracts involves the use of various techniques to estimate total contract revenue and costs. For long-term contracts, the Company estimates the profit on a contract as the difference between the total estimated revenue and expected costs to complete a contract and recognizes that profit as performance obligations are satisfied. Contract estimates are based on various assumptions to project the outcome of future events that could span longer than one year. These assumptions include labor productivity and availability, the complexity of the work to be performed, the cost and availability of materials, and the performance of subcontractors as applicable.

Table of Contents

As a significant change in one or more of these estimates could affect the profitability of our contracts, the Company reviews and updates its contract-related estimates regularly. Adjustments in estimated profit on contracts are accounted for under the cumulativecatch-up method. Under this method, the impact of the adjustment on profit recorded to date on a contract is recognized in the period the adjustment is identified. Revenue and profit in future periods of contract performance are recognized using the adjusted estimate.

Contract Balances

The timing of revenue recognition, billings and cash collections results in billed accounts receivable, unbilled receivables (contract assets), and customer advances and deposits (contract liabilities) in the Consolidated Balance Sheets. For certain highly customized pump products, revenue is recognized over time before the customer is invoiced, resulting in contract assets. Sometimes the Company receives advances or deposits from its customers before revenue is recognized, resulting in contract liabilities. These contract assets and liabilities are reported in the Consolidated Balance Sheets as a component of Other assets and Deferred revenue and customer deposits, respectively, on acontract-by-contract basis at the end of each reporting period.

The Company’s contract assets and liabilities as of March 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019 were as follows:

 

   March 31, 2020   December 31, 2019 

Contract assets

  $—     $393 

Contract liabilities

  $5,586   $4,911 

Revenue recognized for the three months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019 that was included in the contract liabilities balance at the beginning of the period was $2.8 million and $2.4 million, respectively.

NOTE 4 - INVENTORIES

LIFO inventories are stated at the lower of cost or market and all other inventories are stated at the lower of cost or net realizable value. Replacement cost approximates current cost and the excess over LIFO cost is approximately $63.2 million and $62.5 million at March 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019, respectively. Allowances for excess and obsolete inventory totaled $5.8 million and $5.9 million at March 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019, 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 expectedyear-end inventory levels and costs, and are subject to the finalyear-end LIFO inventory valuation.

Inventories are comprised of the following:

NOTE 7 - 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 defined benefit pension 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 anon-contributory defined benefit postretirement health care plan that provides health benefits to certain domestic and Canadian retirees and eligible spouses and dependent children. The Company funds the cost of these benefits as incurred.

The following tables present the components of net periodic benefit costs:

MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

(Dollars in thousands, except for per share amounts)

The following discussion and analysis of the Company’s financial condition and Results of Operations should be read in conjunction with the Consolidated Financial Statements, and notes thereto, and the other financial data included elsewhere in this Quarterly Report on Form10-Q. The following discussion should also be read in conjunction with the Company’s audited Consolidated Financial Statements and accompanying notes, and Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations included in its Annual Report on Form10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019. While the recent outbreak of the coronavirus(COVID-19) did not have a material adverse effect on the Company’s reported results for the first quarter, the Company is actively monitoring the impact of the coronavirus outbreak, which could negatively impact the Company’s business and results of operations for the second quarter and beyond. The extent to which the Company’s operations will be impacted by the outbreak will depend largely on future developments, which are highly uncertain and cannot be accurately predicted, including new information which may emerge concerning the severity of the outbreak and actions by government authorities to contain the outbreak or treat its impact, among other things.

Executive Overview

The following discussion of Results of Operations includes certainnon-GAAP financial data and measures such as adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization and adjusted earnings per share amounts which excludenon-cash pension settlement charges in 2020. Management utilizes these adjusted financial data and measures to assess comparative operations against those of prior periods without the distortion ofnon-comparable factors. The Gorman-Rupp Company believes that thesenon-GAAP financial data and measures also will be useful to investors in assessing the 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.

The Company places a strong emphasis on cash flow generation and maintaining excellent liquidity and financial flexibility. This focus has afforded us the ability to reinvest our cash resources and preserve a strong balance sheet to position us to weather theCOVID-19 pandemic and, for future acquisition and product development opportunities. The Company had no bank debt as of March 31, 2020. The Company’s cash position increased $1.9 million during the first three months of 2020 to $82.4 million at March 31, 2020 and the Company generated $11.6 million in adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization during the same period.

Capital expenditures for the first three months of 2019 were $1.7 million and consisted primarily of machinery and equipment. Capital expenditures for the full-year 2020 are presently planned to be in the range of$10-$15 million primarily for building improvements and machinery and equipment purchases, and are expected to be financed through internally-generated funds.

Net sales for the first quarter of 2020 were $91.7 million compared to net sales of $96.9 million for the first quarter of 2019, a decrease of 5.4% or $5.2 million. Domestic sales decreased 3.4% or $2.3 million and international sales decreased 9.8% or $2.9 million compared to the same period in 2019.

Gross profit was $23.4 million for the first quarter of 2020, resulting in gross margin of 25.6%, compared to gross profit of $23.3 million and gross margin of 24.1% for the same period in 2019. Gross margin improved 150 basis points due principally to lower material costs of 270 basis points as a result of the stabilization of material costs and selling price increases implemented in 2019 being fully realized. Partially offsetting these improvements was loss of leverage on fixed labor and overhead from lower sales volume compared to the first quarter of 2019.

Selling, general and administrative (“SG&A”) expenses were $14.9 million and 16.2% of net sales for the first quarter of 2020 compared to $14.4 million and 14.8% of net sales for the same period in 2019. SG&A expenses as a percentage of sales increased 140 basis points primarily as a result of trade show expenses and loss of leverage from lower sales volume.

Operating income was $8.6 million for the first quarter of 2020, resulting in an operating margin of 9.4%, compared to operating income of $9.0 million and operating margin of 9.2% for the same period in 2019. Operating margin improved 20 basis points primarily as a result of lower material costs partially offset by loss of leverage from lower sales volume.

Other income (expense), net was $1.7 million of expense for the first quarter of 2020 compared to income of $0.3 million for the same period in 2019. The increase to expense of $2.0 million was due primarily to anon-cash pension settlement loss of $1.5 million and $0.5 million of foreign exchange losses, which both occurred in the first quarter of 2020.

Net income was $5.5 million for the first quarter of 2020 compared to $7.2 million in the first quarter of 2019, and earnings per share were $0.21 and $0.28 for the respective periods. Earnings per share for the first quarter of 2020 included anon-cash pension settlement charge of $0.04 per share.

The Company’s backlog of orders was $113.8 million at March 31, 2020 compared to $120.8 million at March 31, 2019 and $105.0 million at December 31, 2019. Incoming orders decreased 3.3% compared to the same period in 2019 while increasing 3.5% compared to the fourth quarter of 2019. Incoming orders during the first quarter included an increase in the fire protection market but were down to the prior year across most other markets.

On April 23, 2020, the Board of Directors authorized the payment of a quarterly dividend of $0.145 per share on the common stock of the Company, payable June 10, 2020, to shareholders of record as of May 15, 2020. This will mark the 281st consecutive quarterly dividend paid by The Gorman-Rupp Company. The dividend yield on March 31, 2020 was 1.9%.

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.

Outlook

While we are actively managing our response to the recentCOVID-19 pandemic, its impact on our full-year 2020 results and beyond is uncertain. We serve as an essential business providing products that are critical to our customers. All of our manufacturing facilities continue to operate while closely following all national and local guidelines to provide for the health and safety of those working in these facilities. We expect our sales to remain challenging over the near-term as a result of uncertainty related toCOVID-19 and continued oil and gas market softness. Incoming orders during the first quarter included an increase in the fire protection market but were down to the prior year across most other markets.

Our underlying fundamentals remain strong and we believe that we remain well positioned to weather theCOVID-19 pandemic and continue 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. An infrastructure bill including support for investment in water, wastewater and flood control would be beneficial.

Sales in our water markets decreased 5.6% or $3.8 million in the first quarter of 2020 compared to the first quarter of 2019. Sales in the fire protection market increased $2.2 million driven primarily by increased domestic shipments and sales in the agriculture market increased $0.8 million. These increases were offset by decreased sales in the construction market of $6.1 million driven primarily by softness in oil and gas drilling activity. Also, sales of repair parts decreased $0.5 million, and sales in the municipal market decreased $0.2 million.

Sales in ournon-water markets decreased 4.9% or $1.4 million in the first quarter of 2020 compared to the first quarter of 2019. Sales in the industrial market increased $0.1 million. This increase was offset by decreased sales in the petroleum market of $1.1 million driven primarily by reduced demand from midstream oil and gas customers and decreased sales in the OEM market of $0.4 million.

International sales were $26.3 million in the first quarter of 2020 compared to $29.2 million in the same period last year and represented 29% and 30% of total sales, respectively. The decrease in international sales was across most of the markets the Company serves.

The Company’s effective tax rate was 20.4% for the first quarter of 2020 compared to 21.9% for the first quarter of 2019 primarily due to favorable impact of discrete items.

The decrease in net income in the first quarter of 2020 compared to the same period in 2019 of $1.7 million included anon-cash pension settlement charge of $1.1 million, net of income taxes and foreign exchange losses of $0.4 million, net of income taxes.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

Cash and cash equivalents totaled $82.4 million and there was no outstanding bank debt at March 31, 2020. The Company had $23.7 million available in bank lines of credit after deducting $7.3 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 March 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019.

Free cash flow, anon-GAAP 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 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 decrease in cash provided by operating activities in the first three months of 2020 compared to the same period last year was primarily due to increased inventories in the current period, partially offset by changes in benefit obligations and commissions payable.

During the first three months of 2020 and 2019, investing activities consisted of capital expenditures primarily for machinery and equipment of $1.7 million and $2.1 million, respectively.

Net cash used for financing activities for the first three months of 2020 and 2019 primarily consisted of dividend payments of $3.8 million and $3.5 million, respectively.

As we cannot predict the duration or scope of theCOVID-19 pandemic and its impact on our customers and suppliers, the negative financial impact to our results cannot be reasonably estimated, but could be material. We are actively managing the business to maintain cash flow and we have significant liquidity. We believe that these factors will allow us to meet our anticipated funding requirements.

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

Any new accounting policies or updates to existing accounting policies as a result of new accounting pronouncements have been discussed in the notes to our Consolidated Financial Statements in this Quarterly Report on Form10-Q. The application of our critical accounting policies may require management to make judgments and estimates about the amounts reflected in the Consolidated Financial Statements. Management uses historical experience and all available information to make these estimates and judgments, and different amounts could be reported using different assumptions and estimates.

CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

The Company maintains a set of disclosure controls and procedures designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by the Company in reports that it files or submits under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in Securities and Exchange Commission rules and forms. The Company’s disclosure controls and procedures are also designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in Company reports filed under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 is accumulated and communicated to the Company’s management, including the principal executive officer and the principal financial officer, as appropriate, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

An evaluation was carried out under the supervision and with the participation of the Company’s management, including the principal executive officer and the principal financial officer, of the effectiveness of the design and operation of the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures as of the end of the period covered by this report on Form10-Q. Based on that evaluation, the principal executive officer and the principal financial officer have concluded that the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures were effective as of March 31, 2020.

Changes in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting

ITEM 1.

LEGAL PROCEEDINGS

There are no material changes from the legal proceedings previously reported in the Company’s Annual Report on Form10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2019.

 

ITEM 1A.

RISK FACTORS

TheCOVID-19 pandemic has disrupted our operations and could have a material adverse effect on our business.

Our business could be materially and adversely affected by the outbreak of a widespread health epidemic. The present coronavirus (orCOVID-19) pandemic has disrupted our operations and will affect our business, including as government authorities impose mandatory closures, work-from-home orders and social distancing protocols, and seek voluntary facility closures or impose other restrictions that could materially adversely affect our ability to adequately staff and maintain our operations. Specifically, we have experienced one temporary facility closure in South Africa, and may experience in the future additional temporary facility closures in response to government mandates in certain jurisdictions in which we operate and in response to positive diagnoses forCOVID-19 in certain facilities for the safety of our associates. TheCOVID-19 outbreak could also disrupt our supply chain and materially adversely impact our ability to secure supplies for our facilities and to provide personal protective equipment for our employees, which could materially adversely affect our operations. There may also be long-term effects on our customers in and the economies of affected countries. Even if a virus or other illness does not spread significantly, the perceived risk of infection or health risk may materially adversely affect our business. Any of the foregoing within the countries in which we or our customers and suppliers operate would severely disrupt our operations and could have a material adverse effect on our business, results of operations, cash flows and financial condition. In addition, future changes in the Company’s cost of capital, expected cash flows, or other factors as a result of the above may cause the Company’s goodwill to be impaired, resulting in anon-cash charge against results of operations to write down goodwill for the amount of the impairment. As we cannot predict the duration or scope of theCOVID-19 pandemic, the negative financial impact to our results cannot be reasonably estimated, but could be material.

In addition to the other information set forth in this report, you should carefully consider the other risk factors disclosed in Item 1A of the Company’s Annual Report on Form10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2019.
