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 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 six months ended June 30, 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 Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019, from which related information herein has been derived.

 

COVID-19 Impact

 

In March 2020, the World Health Organization categorized the current coronavirus disease (“COVID-19”) as a pandemic. While the Company expects the near-term effects of the pandemic to negatively impact its financial results, the current level of uncertainty over the economic and operational impacts of COVID-19 means the ultimate related financial impact cannot be reasonably estimated at this time. The Company’s Consolidated Financial Statements presented herein reflect estimates and assumptions made by management that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the reporting periods presented. Such estimates and assumptions affect, among other things, the Company’s goodwill, long-lived asset and indefinite-lived intangible asset valuation; inventory valuation; assessment of the annual effective tax rate; the allowance for doubtful accounts; and pension plan assumptions. The Company is not aware of any specific event or circumstance that would require an update to its estimates or judgments or a revision of the carrying value of its assets or liabilities as of July 27, 2020, the date of issuance of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q. These estimates may change, as new events occur and additional information is obtained.

 

 

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 ASU 2019-12, “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. ASU 2019-12 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 ASU 2019-12 will have a material impact on the Company’s Consolidated Financial Statements.

 

In August 2018, the FASB issued ASU 2018-14, “Compensation-Retirement Benefits-Defined Benefit Plans-General (Topic 715-20): 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 ASU 2019-12 will have a material impact on the Company’s Consolidated Financial Statements.

 

Recently Adopted Accounting Standards

 

In June 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-13, “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. ASU 2016-13 requires use of a forward-looking expected credit loss model for accounts receivables, loans, and other financial instruments. ASU 2016-13 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 ASU 2019-11, Codification Improvements to Topic 326, Financial Instruments—Credit Losses. ASU 2019-11 requires entities that did not adopt the amendments in ASU 2016-13 as of November 2019 to adopt ASU 2019-11. This ASU contains the same effective dates and transition requirements as ASU 2016-13. 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 31% of total net sales for both the second quarter of 2020 and 2019, 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 June 30, 2020, the Company had $110.3 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.

 

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 cumulative catch-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 a contract-by-contract basis at the end of each reporting period.

 

The Company’s contract assets and liabilities as of June 30, 2020 and December 31, 2019 were as follows:

 

  

June 30,

2020

  

December 31,

2019

 

Contract assets

 $-  $393 

Contract liabilities

 $3,807  $4,911 

 

Revenue recognized for the six months ended June 30, 2020 and 2019 that was included in the contract liabilities balance at the beginning of the period was $3.8 million and $4.9 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 $63.7 million and $62.5 million at June 30, 2020 and December 31, 2019, respectively. Allowances for excess and obsolete inventory totaled $5.9 million at both June 30, 2020 and at December 31, 2019. 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.

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 a non-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.

ITEM 2.

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 Form 10-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 Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019. The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic had an adverse effect on the Company’s reported results for the first half of 2020. Many of our customers are considered “essential” and have remained operational, although in some cases in a limited capacity. This, together with the overall economic downturn that has resulted from the pandemic, slowed demand in the second quarter, which could continue into the second half of 2020. Nearly all of our facilities have remained operational and while there are some restrictions to the supply of materials and products globally, our supply chain has remained strong. The extent to which the Company’s operations continue to be impacted by the pandemic 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 pandemic and actions by government authorities to contain the pandemic or treat its impact, among other things.

 

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 non-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 of non-comparable factors. The Gorman-Rupp Company believes that these non-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 Gorman-Rupp Company (“we”, “our”, “Gorman-Rupp” or the “Company”) is a leading designer, manufacturer and international marketer of pumps and pump systems for use in diverse water, wastewater, construction, dewatering, industrial, petroleum, original equipment, agriculture, fire protection, heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC), military and other liquid-handling applications. The Company attributes its success to long-term product quality, applications and performance combined with timely delivery and service, and continually seeks to develop initiatives to improve performance in these key areas.

 

Gorman-Rupp actively pursues growth opportunities through organic growth, international business expansion and acquisitions.

 

We regularly invest in training for our employees, in new product development and in modern manufacturing equipment, technology and facilities all designed to increase production efficiency and capacity and drive growth by delivering innovative solutions to our customers. We believe that the diversity of our markets is a major contributor to the generally stable financial growth we have produced for more than 85 years.

 

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 the COVID-19 pandemic and, for future acquisition and product development opportunities. The Company had no bank debt as of June 30, 2020. The Company’s cash position increased $5.2 million during the first six months of 2020 to $85.8 million at June 30, 2020 and the Company generated $23.7 million in adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization during the same period.

 

Capital expenditures for the first six months of 2020 were $3.5 million and consisted primarily of machinery and equipment and building improvements. Capital expenditures for the full-year 2020 are presently planned to be in the range of $10-$12 million primarily for building improvements and machinery and equipment purchases, and are expected to be financed through internally-generated funds.

 

Net sales for the second quarter of 2020 were $85.8 million compared to net sales of $108.3 million for the second quarter of 2019, a decrease of 20.8% or $22.5 million. Domestic sales decreased 20.2% or $15.1 million and international sales decreased 22.0% or $7.4 million compared to the same period in 2019. Sales have decreased across all of our markets primarily as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, along with a slowdown in the oil and gas industry.

 

Gross profit was $21.8 million for the second quarter of 2020, resulting in gross margin of 25.5%, compared to gross profit of $28.2 million and gross margin of 26.0% for the same period in 2019. Gross margin decreased 50 basis points due principally to loss of leverage on fixed labor and overhead from lower sales volume compared to the second quarter of 2019, partially offset by product mix and selling price increases implemented in 2019 being fully realized.

 

Selling, general and administrative (“SG&A”) expenses were $12.9 million and 15.0% of net sales for the second quarter of 2020 compared to $15.0 million and 13.8% of net sales for the same period in 2019. SG&A expenses decreased 14.3% or $2.1 million due to reduced payroll related and travel expenses combined with overall expense management. SG&A expenses as a percentage of sales increased 120 basis points primarily as a result of loss of leverage from lower sales volume.

 

13

 

Operating income was $9.0 million for the second quarter of 2020, resulting in an operating margin of 10.5%, compared to operating income of $13.2 million and operating margin of 12.2% for the same period in 2019. Operating margin decreased 170 basis points primarily as a result of loss of leverage from lower sales volume.

 

Other income (expense), net was $1.9 million of expense for the second quarter of 2020 compared to income of $0.2 million for the same period in 2019. The increase to expense was due primarily to a non-cash pension settlement charge of $1.9 million which occurred in the second quarter of 2020.

 

Net income was $5.6 million for the second quarter of 2020 compared to $10.5 million in the second quarter of 2019, and earnings per share were $0.22 and $0.40 for the respective periods. Earnings per share for the second quarter of 2020 included a non-cash pension settlement charge of $0.06 per share.

 

Net sales for the first six months of 2020 were $177.5 million compared to net sales of $205.2 million for the first six months of 2019, a decrease of 13.5% or $27.7 million. Domestic sales decreased 12.3% or $17.5 million and international sales decreased 16.3% or $10.2 million compared to the same period in 2019. Sales have decreased across most of our markets primarily as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, along with a slowdown in the oil and gas industry.

 

Gross profit was $45.3 million for the first six months of 2020, resulting in gross margin of 25.5%, compared to gross profit of $51.5 million and gross margin of 25.1% for the same period in 2019. Gross margin improved 40 basis points due principally to lower material costs of 260 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 six months of 2019.

 

SG&A expenses were $27.7 million and 15.6% of net sales for the first six months of 2020 compared to $29.4 million and 14.3% of net sales for the same period in 2019. SG&A expenses decreased 5.5% or $1.6 million due to reduced payroll related and travel expenses combined with overall expense management. SG&A expenses as a percentage of sales increased 130 basis points primarily as a result of loss of leverage from lower sales volume.

 

Operating income was $17.6 million for the first six months of 2020, resulting in an operating margin of 9.9%, compared to operating income of $22.2 million and operating margin of 10.8% for the same period in 2019. Operating margin decreased 90 basis points primarily as a result of loss of leverage from lower sales volume partially offset by lower material costs.

 

Other income (expense), net was $3.6 million of expense for the first six months of 2020 compared to income of $0.5 million for the same period in 2019. The increase to expense was due primarily to non-cash pension settlement charges of $3.4 million and $0.5 million of foreign exchange losses, which both occurred in the first six months of 2020.

 

Net income was $11.1 million for the first six months of 2020 compared to $17.7 million in the first six months of 2019, and earnings per share were $0.43 and $0.68 for the respective periods. Earnings per share for the first six months of 2020 included non-cash pension settlement charges of $0.10 per share.

 

The Company’s backlog of orders was $110.3 million at June 30, 2020 compared to $107.0 million at June 30, 2019 and $105.0 million at December 31, 2019. Incoming orders decreased 7.9% for the first six months of 2020 compared to the same period in 2019. Incoming orders were down across most markets the Company serves driven primarily by the COVID-19 pandemic and a slowdown in the oil and gas industry.

 

On July 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 September 10, 2020, to shareholders of record as of August 14, 2020. This will mark the 282nd consecutive quarterly dividend paid by The Gorman-Rupp Company.

 

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 COVID-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 to the ultimate impact of COVID-19 and continued oil and gas market softness.  Incoming orders during the first six months were down across most of the markets the Company serves.    

 

14

 

Our underlying fundamentals remain strong and we believe that we remain well positioned to weather the COVID-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.

This increase was offset by sales decreases in the construction market of $10.6 million driven primarily by softness in oil and gas drilling activity, in the repair market of $3.5 million due primarily to the COVID-19 pandemic, and in the municipal market of $3.0 million driven primarily by timing of shipments related to weather and the COVID-19 pandemic. Also, sales in the fire protection market decreased $1.5 million driven primarily by lower international shipments as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

Sales in our non-water markets decreased 15.3% or $9.4 million in the first six months of 2020 compared to the first six months of 2019. Sales in the OEM market decreased $4.7 million driven primarily by slowing customer demand and travel restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic and softness in oil and gas drilling activity. Sales in the petroleum market decreased $3.9 million driven primarily by reduced demand from midstream oil and gas customers. Also, sales in the industrial market decreased $0.8 million.

 

International sales were $52.5 million in the first six months of 2020 compared to $62.7 million in the same period last year and represented 30% and 31% of total sales, respectively. The decrease in international sales was across most of the markets the Company serves.

Gross profit was $45.3 million for the first six months of 2020, resulting in gross margin of 25.5%, compared to gross profit of $51.5 million and gross margin of 25.1% for the same period in 2019. Gross margin improved 40 basis points due principally to lower material costs of 260 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 six months of 2019.

The Company’s effective tax rate was 20.3% for the first half of 2020 compared to 21.9% for the first half of 2019 primarily due to favorable impact of discrete items.

 

The decrease in net income in the first six months of 2020 compared to the same period in 2019 of $6.6 million included a non-cash pension settlement charge of $2.6 million, net of income taxes and foreign exchange losses of $0.4 million, net of income taxes.

 

Earnings per share for the first half of 2020 included a non-cash pension settlement charge of $0.10 per share.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources 

 

Cash and cash equivalents totaled $85.8 million and there was no outstanding bank debt at June 30, 2020. The Company had $23.9 million available in bank lines of credit after deducting $7.1 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 June 30, 2020 and December 31, 2019.

 

Free cash flow, a non-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 six months of 2020 compared to the same period last year was primarily driven by lower sales volume, increased inventories and lower accounts receivable in the current period.

 

During the first six months of 2020 and 2019, investing activities consisted of capital expenditures primarily for machinery and equipment and building improvements of $3.5 million for both periods.

 

Net cash used for financing activities for the first six months of 2020 and 2019 primarily consisted of dividend payments of $7.6 million and $7.1 million, respectively.

 

As we cannot predict the duration or scope of the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on our customers and suppliers, the ultimate 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.

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 Form 10-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.
