REGAL BELOIT CORPORATION
NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
September 26, 2020
(Unaudited)

1. BASIS OF PRESENTATION
The accompanying (a) Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheet of Regal Beloit Corporation (the “Company”) as of December 28, 2019, which has been derived from audited Consolidated Financial Statements, and (b) unaudited interim Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements as of September 26, 2020 and for the three and nine months ended September 26, 2020 and September 28, 2019, have been prepared pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission. Certain information and note disclosures normally included in annual financial statements prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("GAAP"), have been condensed or omitted pursuant to those rules and regulations, although the Company believes that the disclosures made are adequate to make the information not misleading.
It is suggested that these Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements be read in conjunction with the Consolidated Financial Statements and the Notes thereto included in the Company’s 2019 Annual Report on Form 10-K filed on February 26, 2020.
In the opinion of management, all adjustments considered necessary for a fair presentation of financial results have been made. Except as otherwise discussed, such adjustments consist of only those of a normal recurring nature. Operating results for the three and nine months ended September 26, 2020 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the entire fiscal year ending January 2, 2021.
The Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements have been prepared in accordance with GAAP, which requires the Company to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities at the date of the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements and revenues and expenses during the periods reported. Actual results could differ from those estimates. The Company uses estimates in accounting for, among other items, allowance for doubtful accounts; excess and obsolete inventory; share-based compensation; acquisitions; product warranty obligations; pension and post retirement assets and liabilities; derivative fair values; goodwill and other asset impairments; health care reserves; retirement benefits; rebates and incentives; litigation claims and contingencies, including environmental matters; and income taxes. The Company accounts for changes to estimates and assumptions when warranted by factually based experience.
The Company operates on a 52/53 week fiscal year ending on the Saturday closest to December 31.
Recently Issued Accounting Standards
In August 2018, the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") issued Accounting Standards Update ("ASU") 2018-14, Compensation - Retirement Benefits - Defined Benefit Plans - General (Subtopic 715-20). The ASU addresses modifications to the disclosure requirements for Defined Benefit Plans. Under ASU 2018-14 the disclosure requirements that can be removed are amounts in accumulated other comprehensive income expected to be recognized as components of net periodic benefit cost over the next fiscal year, amount and timing of plan assets expected to be returned to the employer, and the effects of a one-percentage-point change in assumed health care cost trend rates on the aggregate of the service and interest cost components of net periodic benefit costs and benefit obligations for postretirement health care benefits. Additional disclosures are required for the weighted -average interest crediting rates for cash balance plans and other plans with promised interest crediting rates and an explanation for significant gains and losses related to the changes in the benefit obligation for the period. If a defined benefit pension plan has a projected benefit obligation greater than plan assets the projected benefit obligation and fair value of plan assets should be disclosed. This additional disclosure is also required when comparing the accumulated benefit obligation to plan assets. This ASU becomes effective for fiscal years ending after December 15, 2020 on a retrospective basis for all years presented. Early adoption is permitted. The Company is evaluating the effect of adopting this new accounting guidance, but does not anticipate a material impact on the financial statement disclosures.

In December 2019, the FASB issued ASU 2019-12, Income Taxes (Topic 740) Simplifying the Accounting for Income Taxes. The ASU simplifies the accounting for income taxes by removing certain exceptions to the general principles of Topic 740, and clarifies and amends existing guidance to improve consistent application. This ASU becomes effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2020, with early adoption permitted. The Company is evaluating the effect of adopting this new accounting guidance.

10


Adopted Accounting Standards

In March 2020, the FASB issued ASU 2020-04, Reference Rate Reform (Topic 848) Facilitation of the Effects of Reference Rate Reform on Financial Reporting. The ASU provides optional transition guidance, for a limited time, to companies that have contracts, hedging relationships or other transactions that reference the London Inter-bank Offered Rate (“LIBOR”) or another reference rate which is expected to be discontinued because of reference rate reform. The amendments provide optional expedients and exceptions for applying GAAP to contracts, hedging relationships, and other transactions if certain criteria are met. The amendments in this update are effective as of March 12, 2020 through December 31, 2022. In the second quarter, the Company adopted this standard prospectively and is applying those expedients that allow the Company to continue to assert that LIBOR-based interest remains probable, despite the sunset of LIBOR at the end of 2021 with no impact on the Company's Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements.

In August 2018, the FASB issued ASU 2018-13, Fair Value Measurement (Topic 820) - Disclosure Framework - Changes to the Disclosure Requirements for Fair Value Measurement. The ASU focuses on updates around disclosures of Level 3 fair value measurements and it presents modifications to current disclosure requirements. The additional requirements under this ASU include disclosure for the changes in unrealized gains and losses included in other comprehensive income ("OCI") held at the end of the reporting period and the range and weighted average used to develop significant unobservable inputs. The ASU is also eliminating the disclosure requirement for the amount and reason for transfers between Level 1 and Level 2 fair value measurement, valuation processes for Level 3 measurements, and policy for timing of transfers between levels of the fair value hierarchy. In addition, the ASU modifies the disclosure requirements for investments that are valued based on net asset value. The amendments clarify that the measurement uncertainty disclosure is to communicate information about the uncertainty in measurement as of the reporting date. This ASU is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019, including interim periods therein. The ASU requires prospective application for only the most recent interim or annual period presented in the year of adoption for changes in unrealized gains and losses included in OCI, the range and weighted average used to develop significant unobservable inputs for Level 3 fair value measurements, and the narrative description of measurement uncertainty. The Company adopted the standard as of December 29, 2019, the beginning of fiscal 2020, with no material impact on the Company's Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements.

In June 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-13, Financial Instruments Credit Losses (Topic 326). The focus of this ASU is to require businesses to adjust their allowance for lifetime expected credit losses rather than incurred losses. It is believed that the change will result in more timely recognition of such losses. This ASU is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019, including interim periods therein. The Company adopted the standard as of December 29, 2019, the beginning of fiscal 2020, under the modified retrospective approach. The Company recorded a $3.4 million increase in the allowance for credit losses and a $2.7 million net decrease to retained earnings as of December 29, 2019 for the cumulative effect of adopting ASU 2016-13.

Revenue Recognition

The Company recognizes revenue from the sale of electric motors, electrical motion controls, power generation and power transmission products. The Company recognizes revenue when control of the product passes to the customer or the service is provided and is recognized at an amount that reflects the consideration expected to be received in exchange for such goods or services.
Nature of Goods and Services
The Company sells products with multiple applications as well as customized products that have a single application such as those manufactured for its OEM customers. The Company reports in 4 operating segments: Commercial Systems, Industrial Systems, Climate Solutions and Power Transmission Solutions. See Note 6 for a description of the different segments.
Nature of Performance Obligations
The Company’s contracts with customers typically consist of purchase orders, invoices and master supply agreements. At contract inception, across all 4 segments, the Company assesses the goods and services promised in its sales arrangements with customers and identifies a performance obligation for each promise to transfer to the customer a good or service that is distinct. The Company’s primary performance obligations consist of product sales and customized system/solutions.
Product:
The nature of products varies from segment to segment but across all segments, individual products are not integrated and represent separate performance obligations.
Customized system/solutions:
The Company provides customized system/solutions which consist of multiple products engineered and designed to specific customer specification, combined or integrated into one combined solution for a specific customer application. The goods are transferred to the customer and revenue is typically recognized over time as the performance obligations are satisfied.
When Performance Obligations are Satisfied
For performance obligations related to substantially all of the Company's product sales, the Company determines that the customer obtains control upon shipment and recognizes revenue accordingly. Once a product has shipped, the customer is able to direct the use of, and obtain substantially all of the remaining benefits from the asset. The Company considers control to have transferred upon shipment because the Company has a present right to payment at that time, the customer has legal title to the asset, the Company has transferred physical possession of the asset, and the customer has significant risks and rewards of ownership of the asset.
12


For a limited number of contracts, the Company transfers control and recognizes revenue over time. The Company satisfies its performance obligations over time and the Company uses a cost-based input method to measure progress. In applying the cost-based method of revenue recognition, the Company uses actual costs incurred to date relative to the total estimated costs for the contract in conjunction with the customer's commitment to perform in determining the amount of revenue and cost to recognize. The Company has determined that the cost-based input method provides a faithful depiction of the transfer of goods to the customer.
Payment Terms
The arrangement with the customer states the final terms of the sale, including the description, quantity, and price of each product or service purchased. Payment terms vary by customer but typically range from due upon delivery to 120 days after delivery. For contracts recognized at a point in time, revenue and billing typically occur simultaneously. The Company generally has payment terms with its customers of one year or less and has elected the practical expedient applicable to such contracts not to consider the time value of money. For contracts recognized using the cost-based input method, revenue recognized in excess of customer billings and billings in excess of revenue recognized are reviewed to determine the net asset or net liability position and classified as such on the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheet.
Returns, Refunds, and Warranties
The Company’s contracts do not explicitly offer a “general” right of return to its customers (e.g. customers ordered excess products and return unused items). Warranties are classified as either assurance type or service type warranties. A warranty is considered an assurance type warranty if it provides the customer with assurance that the product will function as intended. A warranty that goes above and beyond ensuring basic functionality is considered a service type warranty. The Company generally only offers limited warranties which are considered to be assurance type warranties and are not accounted for as separate performance obligations. Customers generally receive repair or replacement on products that do not function to specification. Estimated product warranties are provided for specific product groups and the Company accrues for estimated future warranty cost in the period in which the sale is recognized. The Company estimates the accrual requirements based on historical warranty loss experience and the cost is included in Cost of Sales.
Volume Rebates
In some cases, the nature of the Company’s contract may give rise to variable consideration including volume based sales incentives. If the customer achieves specific sales targets, they are entitled to rebates. The Company estimates the projected amount of the rebates that will be achieved and recognizes the estimated costs as a reduction to Net Sales as revenue is recognized.

5. GOODWILL AND INTANGIBLE ASSETS

Goodwill

As required, the Company performs an annual impairment test of goodwill as of the end of the October fiscal month or more frequently if events or circumstances change that would more likely than not reduce the fair value of its reporting units below their carrying value.

In the fourth quarter 2019, in conjunction with the Company's annual goodwill impairment test, the Company concluded that the excess fair value over carrying value for the global industrial motors, commercial air moving and power switch reporting units were less than 10 percent. In the third quarter 2020, the Company performed an interim impairment analysis for the global industrial motors reporting unit triggered by events primarily driven by the economic uncertainty caused by COVID-19. The excess fair value over carrying value continues to be less than 10 percent for the global industrial motors reporting unit.

The Company developed assumptions for the potential impact of COVID-19 given the uncertainty related to supply and demand disruptions on operating results for the global industrial motors reporting unit.

16


While the Company is committed to the strategic actions necessary to realize the long-term forecasted revenues and EBITDA margins a worsening economic outlook could result in future impairment charges.

A lack of recovery or further deterioration in market conditions, a sustained trend of weaker than expected financial performance or a lack of recovery or further decline in the Company's market capitalization, among other factors, as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic could result in an impairment charge in future periods which could have a material adverse effect on the Company's financial statements.

The global industrial motors reporting unit had goodwill of $123.8 million as of September 26, 2020.

Credit Agreement
On August 27, 2018 the Company entered into an Amended and Restated Credit Agreement (the “Credit Agreement”) with JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., as Administrative Agent and the lenders named therein, providing for a (i) 5-year unsecured term loan facility in the principal amount of $900.0 million (the “Term Facility”) and (ii) a 5-year unsecured multicurrency revolving facility in the principal amount of $500.0 million (the “Multicurrency Revolving Facility”), including a $50.0 million letter of credit sub facility, available for general corporate purposes. Borrowings under the Credit Agreement bear interest at floating rates based upon indices determined by the currency of the borrowing, plus an applicable margin determined by reference to the Company's consolidated funded debt to consolidated EBITDA ratio or at an alternative base rate.
The Term Facility was drawn in full on August 27, 2018 with the proceeds settling the amounts owed under prior borrowings. The Term Facility requires quarterly amortization at a rate starting at 5.0% per annum, increasing to 7.5% per annum after three years and further increasing to 10.0% per annum for the last year of the Term Facility, unless previously prepaid. The weighted average interest rate on the Term Facility for the three months ended September 26, 2020 and September 28, 2019 was 1.5% and 3.6%, respectively. The weighted average interest rate on the Term Facility for the nine months ended September 26, 2020 and September 28, 2019 was 2.1% and 3.8%, respectively. The Credit Agreement requires that the Company prepay the loans under the Term Facility with 100% of the net cash proceeds received from specified asset sales and borrowed money indebtedness, subject to certain exceptions.
At September 26, 2020, the Company had 0 borrowings under the Multicurrency Revolving Facility, $0.2 million of standby letters of credit issued under the facility, and $499.8 million of available borrowing capacity. For the three months ended September 26, 2020 and September 28, 2019 under the Multicurrency Revolving Facility, the average daily balance in borrowings was $51.4 million and $127.1 million, respectively, and weighted average interest rate of 1.5% and 3.6%, respectively. For the nine months ended September 26, 2020 and September 28, 2019 under the Multicurrency Revolving Facility, the average daily balance in borrowings was $189.7 million and $91.3 million, respectively, and the weighted average interest rate of 2.1% and 3.7%, respectively. The Company pays a non-use fee on the aggregate unused amount of the Multicurrency Revolving Facility at a rate determined by reference to its consolidated funded debt to consolidated EBITDA ratio.
Senior Notes
At September 26, 2020, the Company had $400.0 million of senior notes (the “Notes”) outstanding. The Notes consist of $400.0 million in senior notes in a private placement which were issued in 5 tranches with maturities from ten to twelve years and carry fixed interest rates.

The estimated net actuarial loss and prior (income) service cost for post retirement plans that will be amortized from AOCI into net periodic benefit cost (income) during the 2020 fiscal year are $1.2 million and $(0.6) million, respectively.
For the three months ended September 26, 2020 and September 28, 2019, the Company contributed $1.3 million and $4.1 million, respectively, to post retirement plans. For the nine months ended September 26, 2020 and September 28, 2019, the Company contributed $3.6 million and $9.0 million, respectively. The Company expects to make total contributions of $5.6 million in 2020. The Company contributed a total of $10.8 million in fiscal 2019.

9. LEASES

The Company leases certain manufacturing facilities, warehouses/distribution centers, office space, machinery, equipment, IT assets, and vehicles. If the contract provides the Company the right to substantially all of the economic benefits from the use of the identified asset and the right to direct the use of the identified asset, it is considered to be or contain a lease. Right-of-use ("ROU") assets and lease liabilities are recognized at lease commencement date based on the present value of the future lease payments over the expected lease term.

As most of the Company's leases do not provide an implicit rate, the Company uses its incremental borrowing rate based on the information available at commencement date in determining the present value of future payments. The incremental borrowing rate is calculated based upon the sovereign treasury rate for the currency in which the lease liability is denominated when the Company takes possession of the leased asset, adjusted for various factors, such as term and internal credit spread. The ROU asset also includes any lease payments made and excludes lease incentive and initial direct costs incurred.

22


Leases entered into may include 1 or more options to renew. The renewal terms can extend the lease term from one to twenty-five years. The exercise of lease renewal options is at the Company's sole discretion. Renewal option periods are included in the measurement of the ROU asset and lease liability when the exercise is reasonably certain to occur. Some leases include options to terminate the lease upon breach of contract and are remeasured at that point in time.

The depreciable life of leased assets and leasehold improvements are limited by the expected lease term, unless there is a transfer of title or purchase option reasonably certain of exercise.

Some of the Company's lease agreements include rental payments adjusted periodically for inflation or are based on an index rate. These increases are reflected as variable lease payments and are included in the measurement of the ROU asset and lease liability. The Company's lease agreements do not contain any material residual value guarantees or material restrictive covenants.

Operating leases are included in the following asset and liability accounts on the Company's Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheet: Operating Lease Assets, Current Operating Lease Liabilities, and Noncurrent Operating Lease Liabilities. ROU assets and liabilities arising from finance leases are included in the following asset and liability accounts on the Company's Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheet: Net Property, Plant and Equipment, Current Maturities of Long-Term Debt, and Long-Term Debt.

10. SHAREHOLDERS’ EQUITY

Repurchase of Common Stock

At a meeting of the Board of Directors on July 24, 2018, the Company's Board of Directors approved the extinguishment of the existing 3.0 million share repurchase program that was approved in November 2013 and replaced it with an authorization to purchase up to $250.0 million of shares. At a meeting of the Board of Directors on October 25, 2019, the July 2018 repurchase authorization was extinguished and replaced with an authorization to purchase up to $250.0 million of shares. For the three and nine months ended September 26, 2020, the Company repurchased and retired 0 and 315,072 shares, respectively, of its common stock. For the nine months ended September 26, 2020, the common stock had an average cost of $79.38 per share for a total cost of $25.0 million. For the three months ended September 28, 2019, the Company repurchased and retired 1,282,037 shares of its common stock at an average cost of $73.43 for a total cost of $94.2 million. For the nine months ended September 28, 2019, the Company repurchased and retired 2,013,782 shares of its common stock at an average cost of $74.52 per share and a total cost of $150.1 million under the July 2018 program.

As of September 26, 2020, there was approximately $210.0 million in common stock available for repurchase under the October 2019 program. The Company announced it had suspended the share repurchase program starting in the first quarter of 2020. The Company has re-instated the share purchase program starting in the fourth quarter of 2020. The existing share repurchase program remains authorized by the Company's Board of Directors.

Share-Based Compensation

The majority of the Company’s annual share-based incentive awards had historically been granted in the second fiscal quarter. Beginning in fiscal 2020, the Company moved its granting of share-based incentive awards to the first fiscal quarter.

The Company recognized approximately $2.7 million and $2.6 million in share-based compensation expense for the three months ended September 26, 2020 and September 28, 2019, respectively. Share-based compensation expense was $8.2 million and $10.0 million for the nine months ended September 26, 2020 and September 28, 2019, respectively. The total income tax benefit recognized in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income for share-based compensation expense was $0.6 million and $0.5 million for the three months ended September 26, 2020 and September 28, 2019, respectively. The total income tax benefit recognized in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income for share-based compensation expense was $1.7 million and $2.1 million for the nine months ended September 26, 2020 and September 28, 2019, respectively. The Company recognizes compensation expense on grants of share-based compensation awards on a straight-line basis over the vesting period of each award. As of September 26, 2020, total unrecognized compensation cost related to share-based compensation awards was approximately $20.8 million, net of estimated forfeitures, which the Company expects to recognize over a weighted average period of approximately 2.0 years.

24


Approximately 1.8 million shares were available for future grant under the 2018 Equity Incentive Plan at September 26, 2020.

Stock Appreciation Rights
The Company uses stock settled stock appreciation rights (“SARs”) as a form of share-based incentive awards. SARs are the right to receive stock in an amount equal to the appreciation in value of a share of stock over the base price per share. Shares granted prior to fiscal 2020 generally vest over five years on the anniversary date while shares granted in fiscal 2020 generally vest over three years on the anniversary date of the grant date. Generally all grants expire 10 years from the grant date. All grants are made at prices equal to the fair market value of the stock on the grant date. For the nine months ended September 26, 2020 and September 28, 2019, expired and canceled shares were immaterial.

The average risk-free interest rate is based on the US Treasury security rate as of the grant date. The expected dividend yield is based on the projected annual dividend as a percentage of the estimated market value of the Company's common stock as of the grant date. The Company estimated the expected volatility using a weighted average of daily historical volatility of the Company's stock price over the expected term of the award. The Company estimated the expected term using historical data.

Restricted Stock Awards and Restricted Stock Units
Restricted stock awards ("RSA") and restricted stock units ("RSU") consist of shares or the rights to shares of the Company's stock. The awards are restricted such that they are subject to substantial risk of forfeiture and to restrictions on their sale or other transfer. As defined in the individual grant agreements, acceleration of vesting may occur under a change in control, death or disability.

Compensation expense recognized related to the RSUs was $3.5 million for the nine months ended September 26, 2020.
As of September 26, 2020, there was $8.2 million of unrecognized compensation cost related to non-vested RSUs that is expected to be recognized as a charge to earnings over a weighted average period of 1.9 years.
Performance Share Units
Performance share units ("PSU") consist of shares or the rights to shares of the Company's stock which are awarded to employees of the Company. These shares are payable upon the determination that the Company achieved certain established performance targets and can range from 0% to 200% of the targeted payout based on the actual results. PSUs have a performance period of 3 years and vest 3 years from the grant date. The PSUs have performance criteria based on a return on invested capital metric or they have performance criteria using returns relative to the Company's peer group. As set forth in the individual award agreements, acceleration of vesting may occur under a change in control, death or disability. There are no voting rights associated with PSUs until vesting occurs and a share of stock is issued. Some of the PSU awards are valued using a Monte Carlo simulation method as of the grant date while others are valued using the closing market price as of the grant date depending on the performance criteria for the award.

Compensation expense for awards granted is recognized based on the grant issuance value or the expected payout ratio depending upon the performance criterion for the award, net of estimated forfeitures. Compensation expense recognized related to PSUs was $1.6 million for the nine months ended September 26, 2020. Total unrecognized compensation expense for all PSUs granted as of September 26, 2020 is estimated to be $5.4 million which is expected to be recognized as a charge to earnings over a weighted average period of 2.0 years.

11. INCOME TAXES
The effective tax rate for the three months ended September 26, 2020 was 20.5% versus 16.3% for the three months ended September 28, 2019. The effective tax rate for the nine months ended September 26, 2020 was 21.7% versus 18.8% for the nine months ended September 28, 2019. The change in the effective tax rate for the three and nine months ended September 26, 2020 was primarily driven by the 2019 expiration of the China incentives awarded to the Company for research and development efforts and the mix of earnings. The Company has applied for the renewal of the China tax incentives and will record the benefit if approval is granted.
As of September 26, 2020 and December 28, 2019, the Company had approximately $6.9 million of unrecognized tax benefits, all of which would impact the effective income tax rate if recognized. Potential interest and penalties related to unrecognized tax benefits are recorded in income tax expense. The Company had approximately $2.7 million and $2.3 million of accrued interest as of September 26, 2020 and December 28, 2019, respectively.
With few exceptions, the Company is no longer subject to US Federal and state/local income tax examinations by tax authorities for years prior to 2014, and the Company is no longer subject to non-US income tax examinations by tax authorities for years prior to 2012.

12. EARNINGS PER SHARE

Diluted earnings per share is calculated based upon earnings applicable to common shares divided by the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding during the period adjusted for the effect of other dilutive securities. The amount of the anti-dilutive shares were 0.3 million and 0.5 million for the three months ended September 26, 2020 and September 28, 2019, respectively. The amount of the anti-dilutive shares were 0.4 million and 0.4 million for the nine months ended September 26, 2020 and September 28, 2019, respectively.

13. CONTINGENCIES
NaN of the Company's subsidiaries that it acquired in 2007 is subject to numerous claims filed in various jurisdictions relating to certain sub-fractional motors that were primarily manufactured through 2004 and that were included as components of residential and commercial ventilation units manufactured and sold in high volumes by a third party. These ventilation units are subject to product safety requirements and other potential regulation of their performance by government agencies such as the US Consumer Product Safety Commission (“CPSC”). The claims generally allege that the ventilation units were the cause of fires. The Company has recorded an estimated liability for incurred claims. Based on the current facts, the Company cannot assure that these claims, individually or in the aggregate, will not have a material adverse effect on its subsidiary's financial condition. The Company's subsidiary cannot reasonably predict the outcome of these claims, the nature or extent of any CPSC or other remedial actions, if any, that the Company's subsidiary may need to undertake with respect to motors that remain in the field, or the costs that may be incurred, some of which could be significant.
The Company is, from time to time, party to litigation and other legal or regulatory proceedings that arise in the normal course of its business operations and the outcomes of which are subject to significant uncertainty, including product warranty and liability claims, contract disputes and environmental, asbestos, intellectual property, employment and other litigation matters. The Company's products are used in a variety of industrial, commercial and residential applications that subject the Company to claims that the use of its products is alleged to have resulted in injury or other damage. Many of these matters will only be resolved when one or more future events occur or fail to occur. Management conducts regular reviews, including updates from legal counsel, to assess the need for accounting recognition or disclosure of these contingencies, and such assessment inherently involves an exercise in judgment. The Company accrues for exposures in amounts that it believes are adequate, and the Company does not believe that the outcome of any such lawsuit individually or collectively will have a material effect on the Company's financial position, its results of operations or its cash flows.
The Company recognizes the cost associated with its standard warranty on its products at the time of sale. The amount recognized is based on historical experience. The following table presents a reconciliation of the changes in accrued warranty costs for the three and nine months ended September 26, 2020 and September 28, 2019 (in millions):

14. DERIVATIVE FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS
The Company is exposed to certain risks relating to its ongoing business operations. The primary risks managed using derivative instruments are commodity price risk, currency exchange risk, and interest rate risk. Forward contracts on certain commodities are entered into to manage the price risk associated with forecasted purchases of materials used in the Company's manufacturing process. Forward contracts on certain currencies are entered into to manage forecasted cash flows in certain foreign currencies. Interest rate swaps are utilized to manage interest rate risk associated with the Company's floating rate borrowings.
The Company is exposed to credit losses in the event of non-performance by the counterparties to various financial agreements, including its commodity hedging transactions, foreign currency exchange contracts and interest rate swap agreements. Exposure to counterparty credit risk is managed by limiting counterparties to major international banks and financial institutions meeting established credit guidelines and continually monitoring their compliance with the credit guidelines. The Company does not obtain collateral or other security to support financial instruments subject to credit risk. The Company does not anticipate non-performance by its counterparties, but cannot provide assurances.
The Company recognizes all derivative instruments as either assets or liabilities at fair value in the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets. The Company designates commodity forward contracts as cash flow hedges of forecasted purchases of commodities, currency forward contracts as cash flow hedges of forecasted foreign currency cash flows and interest rate swaps as cash flow hedges of forecasted LIBOR-based interest payments. There were no significant collateral deposits on derivative financial instruments as of September 26, 2020 or September 28, 2019.
Cash Flow Hedges
For derivative instruments that are designated and qualify as a cash flow hedge, the effective portion of the gain or loss on the derivative is reported as a component of AOCI and reclassified into the same line within the Condensed Consolidated Statement of Income as the earnings effect of the hedged item in the same period or periods during which the hedged transaction affects earnings. Gains and losses on the derivative representing either hedge ineffectiveness or changes in market value of derivatives not designated as hedges are recognized in current earnings.
At September 26, 2020, the Company had $(0.5) million, net of tax, of derivative losses on closed hedge instruments in AOCI that will be realized in earnings when the hedged items impact earnings. At December 28, 2019, the Company had $1.3 million, net of tax, of derivative gains on closed hedge instruments in AOCI that was subsequently realized in earnings when the hedged items impacted earnings.
As of September 26, 2020, the Company had the following currency forward contracts outstanding (with maturities extending through June 2022) to hedge forecasted foreign currency cash flows (in millions):

15. FAIR VALUE
Fair value is defined as the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date (exit price). The inputs used to measure fair value are classified into the following hierarchy:
Level 1Unadjusted quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities
Level 2Unadjusted quoted prices in active markets for similar assets or liabilities, or
Unadjusted quoted prices for identical or similar assets or liabilities in markets that are not active, or
Inputs other than quoted prices that are observable for the asset or liability
Level 3Unobservable inputs for the asset or liability
The Company uses the best available information in measuring fair value. Financial assets and liabilities are classified in their entirety based on the lowest level of input that is significant to the fair value measurement.
The fair values of cash equivalents and short-term deposits approximate their carrying values as of September 26, 2020 and December 28, 2019, due to the short period of time to maturity and are classified using Level 1 inputs. The fair values of trade receivables and accounts payable approximate the carrying values due to the short period of time to maturity. See Note 7 for disclosure of the approximate fair value of the Company's debt at September 26, 2020 and December 28, 2019.
The following table sets forth the Company’s financial assets and liabilities that were accounted for at fair value on a recurring basis as of September 26, 2020 and December 28, 2019 (in millions):

16. RESTRUCTURING ACTIVITIES
The Company incurred restructuring and restructuring-related costs on projects during fiscal 2020 and 2019. Restructuring costs include employee termination and plant relocation costs. Restructuring-related costs include costs directly associated with actions resulting from the Company's Simplification initiatives, such as asset write-downs or accelerated depreciation due to shortened useful lives in connection with site closures, discretionary employment benefit costs and other facility rationalization costs. Restructuring costs for employee termination expenses are generally required to be accrued over the employees' remaining service period while restructuring costs for plant relocation costs and restructuring-related costs are generally required to be expensed as incurred.

Components of Profit and Loss

Net Sales. We sell our products to a variety of manufacturers, distributors and end users. Our customers consist of a large cross-section of businesses, ranging from Fortune 100 companies to small businesses. A number of our products are sold to Original Equipment Manufacturers ("OEMs"), who incorporate our products, such as electric motors, into products they manufacture, and many of our products are built to the requirements of our customers. The majority of our sales derive from direct sales, but a significant portion derives from sales made by manufacturer’s representatives, who are paid exclusively on commission. Our product sales are made via purchase order, long-term contract, and, in some instances, one-time purchases. Many of our products have broad customer bases, with the levels of concentration of revenues varying from business unit to business unit.

Our level of net sales for any given period is dependent upon a number of factors, including (i) the demand for our products; (ii) the strength of the economy generally and the end markets in which we compete; (iii) our customers’ perceptions of our product quality at any given time; (iv) our ability to timely meet customer demands; (v) the selling price of our products; and (vi) the weather. As a result, our total revenue has tended to experience quarterly variations and our total revenue for any particular quarter may not be indicative of future results.

We use the term “organic sales" to refer to sales from existing operations excluding (i) sales from acquired businesses recorded prior to the first anniversary of the acquisition (“Acquisition Sales”), (ii) less the amount of sales attributable to any businesses divested/to be exited, and (iii) the impact of foreign currency translation. The impact of foreign currency translation is determined by translating the respective period’s organic sales using the same currency exchange rates that were in effect during the prior year periods. We use the term “organic sales growth” to refer to the increase in our sales between periods that is attributable to organic sales. We use the term “acquisition growth” to refer to the increase in our sales between periods that is attributable to Acquisition Sales.

Gross Profit. Our gross profit is impacted by our levels of net sales and cost of sales. Our cost of sales consists of costs for, among other things (i) raw materials, including copper, steel and aluminum; (ii) components such as castings, bars, tools, bearings and electronics; (iii) wages and related personnel expenses for fabrication, assembly and logistics personnel; (iv) manufacturing facilities, including depreciation on our manufacturing facilities and equipment, insurance and utilities; and (v) shipping. The majority of our cost of sales consists of raw materials and components. The price we pay for commodities and components can be subject to commodity price fluctuations. We attempt to mitigate this through fixed-price agreements with suppliers and our hedging strategies. When we experience commodity price increases, we have tended to announce price increase to our customers who purchase via purchase order, with such increases generally taking effect a period of time after the public announcements. For those sales we make under long-term contracts, we tend to include material price formulas that specify quarterly or semi-annual price adjustments based on a variety of factors, including commodity prices.

Outside of general economic cyclicality, our business units experience different levels of variation in gross profit from quarter to quarter based on factors specific to each business. For example, a portion of our Climate Solutions segment manufactures products that are used in air conditioning applications. As a result, our sales for that business tend to be lower in the first and fourth quarters and higher in the second and third quarters. In contrast, our Commercial Systems segment, Industrial Systems segment and Power Transmission Solutions segment have a broad customer base and a variety of applications, thereby helping to mitigate large quarter-to-quarter fluctuations outside of general economic conditions.

Operating Expenses. Our operating expenses consist primarily of (i) general and administrative expenses; (ii) sales and marketing expenses; (iii) general engineering and research and development expenses; and (iv) handling costs incurred in conjunction with distribution activities. Personnel related costs are our largest operating expense.

Our general and administrative expenses consist primarily of costs for (i) salaries, benefits and other personnel expenses related to our executive, finance, human resource, information technology, legal and operations functions; (ii) occupancy expenses; (iii) technology related costs; (iv) depreciation and amortization; and (v) corporate-related travel. The majority of our general and administrative costs are for salaries and related personnel expenses. These costs can vary by business given the location of our different manufacturing operations.

37


Our sales and marketing expenses consist primarily of costs for (i) salaries, benefits and other personnel expenses related to our sales and marketing function; (ii) internal and external sales commissions and bonuses; (iii) travel, lodging and other out-of-pocket expenses associated with our selling efforts; and (iv) other related overhead.

Our general engineering and research and development expenses consist primarily of costs for (i) salaries, benefits and other personnel expenses; (ii) the design and development of new energy efficiency products and enhancements; (iii) quality assurance and testing; and (iv) other related overhead. Our research and development efforts tend to be targeted toward developing new products that would allow us to maintain or gain additional market share, whether in new or existing applications. While these costs make up an insignificant portion of our operating expenses in the Power Transmission Solutions segment, they are more substantial in our Commercial Systems, Industrial Systems and Climate Solutions segments. In particular, a large driver of our research and development efforts in those three segments is energy efficiency, which generally means using less electrical power to produce more mechanical power.

Operating Profit. Our operating profit consists of the segment gross profit less the segment operating expenses. In addition, there are shared operating costs that cover corporate and information technology expenses that are consistently allocated to the operating segments and are included in the segment operating expenses. Operating profit is a key metric used to measure year over year improvement of the segments.

Restructuring and Restructuring Related Costs. We incurred restructuring-related costs on employee termination and plant relocation costs. Restructuring related costs includes costs directly associated with actions resulting from our simplification initiatives, such as asset write-downs or accelerated depreciation due to shortened useful lives in connection with site closures, discretionary employment benefit costs and other facility rationalization costs. Restructuring costs for employee termination expenses are generally required to be accrued over the employees remaining service period while restructuring costs for plant relocation costs and restructuring-related costs are generally required to be expensed as incurred.
COVID-19 Pandemic
COVID-19 evolved during the first quarter of 2020 into a global pandemic, resulting in a severe global health crisis that drove a dramatic slowdown in global economic and social activity. COVID-19 started to impact our businesses in China early in the first quarter of this year, and as the virus spread and the year progressed, the virus increasingly impacted our business on a global scale.

Impacts from COVID-19 on our business became more severe during the first half of the second quarter in terms of weakening demand in many of our end markets, which are weighted to North America, and its impact on our manufacturing operations, particularly in Mexico and India. As the second quarter progressed, pressure on our order rates started to abate, and previously disrupted manufacturing operations improved. Our order rates started to push back into positive territory in the third quarter. Currently, our manufacturing operations are, on average, running closer to full capacity. We acknowledge that in many regions confirmed cases of COVID-19 are increasing, including in much of the United States, Mexico, Europe and India.

We are an essential business, and as such have worked to ensure that our global facilities have remained operational. Our products are essential components in a range of applications used in the food & beverage, pharmaceutical, medical, transportation, and data communications industries, among many others. Certain global manufacturing operations have been impacted with plant closures or plants running at reduced rates at various points during the first nine months of the fiscal year.

In the face of this global crisis, our first priority has been the health and safety of our associates. In response, we implemented a host of measures to help our associates stay safe, measures that have been enhanced and refined as impacts from COVID-19 grew, and as our knowledge about how to enhance their effectiveness improved.

Factors deriving from the COVID-19 response that have or may negatively impact sales and operating profit in the future include, but are not limited to: limitations on the ability of our suppliers to manufacture, or procure from manufacturers, components and raw materials used in our products, or to meet delivery requirements and commitments; limitations on the ability of our employees to perform their work due to illness caused by the pandemic or local, state, or federal orders requiring employees to remain at home; limitations on the ability of carriers to deliver our products to customers; limitations on the ability of our customers to conduct their business and purchase our products and services; reductions in demands of our customers; and limitations on the ability of our customers to pay us on a timely basis.

38


As part of our response to the impacts of COVID-19, we have taken additional cost reduction actions, in addition to the substantial restructuring, supply chain, and 80/20 reorganization efforts that were already underway prior to the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. These additional actions included an organization wide reduction in force and a voluntary early retirement program. We will consider making further changes to our cost structure as the implications of COVID-19 continue to evolve.

Outlook
Our August and September order rates pushed back into positive territory as compared to the prior year evidencing some level of stability. Net sales in the fourth quarter are typically lower compared to our first three quarters due to seasonality and we expect fourth quarter and full year sales to be down versus the prior year.

Results of Operations
Three Months Ended September 26, 2020 Compared to September 28, 2019
Net sales decreased $14.1 million or 1.8% for the third quarter 2020 compared to the third quarter 2019. The decrease consisted of negative organic sales of 1.5%, negative foreign currency translation of 0.2%, and a negative 0.1% from the businesses divested/to be exited. The decrease was primarily driven by sales declines in North America general industrial, oil & gas end markets due to the lower customer demand and production disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and ongoing proactive account pruning. Gross profit increased $19.7 million or 9.8% for the third quarter 2020 as compared to the third quarter 2019. The increase in gross profit on lower volume was driven by favorable price realization versus cost, improved sales mix, proactive account pruning, supply chain optimization and benefits of prior cost actions. Total operating expenses for the third quarter 2020 increased $2.5 million or 1.9% as compared to the third quarter 2019. The increase was primarily driven by foreign exchange losses and real estate sale losses partially offset by lower variable selling costs and lower employee related wage and benefit costs.
Commercial Systems Segment net sales for the third quarter 2020 were $218.5 million, an increase of $3.7 million or 1.7% as compared to the third quarter 2019. The increase consisted of positive organic sales of 1.3% and positive foreign currency translation of 0.5%. The increase was primarily driven by strength in the pool pump market, share gains in the China motor business and to a lesser extent growth in North American large commercial HVAC. The gains were partially offset by ongoing COVID-19 pandemic related disruptions in our Mexico manufacturing operations and ongoing proactive account pruning.

The increase in gross profit was primarily driven by favorable price realization versus cost and improved sales mix partially offset by expedited freight charges incurred as a result of the manufacturing operations disruptions. Total operating expenses for the third quarter 2020 were $36.1 million compared to $36.9 million in the third quarter 2019. The $0.8 million or 2.2% decrease was primarily due to lower employee related wage and benefit costs partially offset by foreign exchange losses.
Industrial Systems Segment net sales for the third quarter 2020 were $138.8 million, a decrease of $5.0 million or 3.5% as compared to the third quarter 2019. The decrease consisted of negative organic sales of 2.9% and negative foreign currency translation of 0.6%. The decrease was primarily driven by headwinds related to the COVID-19 pandemic impacting sales into the North American general industrial and oil & gas markets, combined with ongoing proactive account pruning; partially offset by share gains in the data center market. Gross profit increased $7.5 million or 31.6% as compared to the third quarter 2019. The increase in gross profit was primarily driven by supply chain optimization, favorable mix and positive price realization versus cost partially offset by lower volumes. Total operating expenses for the third quarter 2020 were $24.6 million compared to $26.0 million in the third quarter 2019. The $1.4 million or 5.4% decrease was primarily due to lower variable selling costs on the lower sales volumes, lower employee related wage and benefit costs and general cost savings initiatives partially offset by real estate losses and foreign exchange losses.
Climate Solutions Segment net sales were $234.0 million, an increase of $3.1 million or 1.3% as compared to the third quarter 2019. The increase consisted of positive organic sales of 2.5% offset by a decline of 0.4% from the businesses divested/to be exited and negative foreign currency translation of 0.8%. The increase was primarily due to strong demand in the North America residential HVAC market, partially offset by headwinds related to COVID-19 pandemic in the commercial refrigeration market and in the North American light commercial HVAC market, as well as ongoing account pruning. Gross profit increased $4.9 million or 7.6% compared to the third quarter 2019. The increase in gross profit was primarily driven by favorable mix and higher volumes partially offset by slightly weaker price realization versus cost and expedited freight charges. Total operating expenses for the third quarter 2020 were $29.9 million compared to $26.6 million in the third quarter 2019. The increase was primarily due to increased foreign exchange losses.
39


Power Transmission Solutions Segment net sales for the third quarter 2020 were $166.9 million, a decrease of $15.9 million or 8.7% compared to third quarter 2019 net sales of $182.8 million.

The effective tax rate for the three months ended September 26, 2020 was 20.5% versus 16.3% for the three months ended September 28, 2019. The effective tax rate for the nine months ended September 26, 2020 was 21.7% versus 18.8% for the nine months ended September 28, 2019. The change in the effective tax rate for the three and nine months ended September 26, 2020 was primarily driven by the 2019 expiration of the China incentives awarded to the Company for research and development efforts and the mix of earnings.

Liquidity and Capital Resources
General
Our principal source of liquidity is cash flow provided by operating activities. In addition to operating income, other significant factors affecting our cash flow include working capital levels, capital expenditures, dividends, share repurchases, acquisitions and divestitures, availability of debt financing and the ability to attract long-term capital at acceptable terms.

Cash flow provided by operating activities was $309.9 million for the nine months ended September 26, 2020, a $38.7 million increase from the nine months ended September 28, 2019. The higher net income for the nine months ended September 28, 2019 included a $45.2 million gain on divestiture of businesses compared to $0.1 million gain on divestiture of businesses for the nine months ended September 26, 2020. In addition, working capital was a higher source of cash in the current year for the nine months ended September 26, 2020 compared to the nine months ended September 28, 2019, most notably accounts payable being a source of cash in the current year versus a use of cash in the prior year.

Cash flow used in investing activities was $21.8 million for the nine months ended September 26, 2020 as compared to cash flow provided by investing activities of $84.0 million for the nine months ended September 28, 2019. The change was driven primarily by $159.6 million of divestiture proceeds received partially offset by higher capital investments in the prior year.

Cash flow used in financing activities was $135.2 million for the nine months ended September 26, 2020, compared to $303.8 million used in financing activities for the nine months ended September 28, 2019. We had net debt repayments of $67.8 million during the nine months ended September 26, 2020, compared to net debt repayments of $107.3 million during the nine months ended September 28, 2019. We paid $36.5 million of dividends to shareholders during the nine months ended September 26, 2020, compared to $36.6 million for the nine months ended September 28, 2019. There were $25.0 million of share repurchases for the nine months ended September 26, 2020, compared to $150.1 million for the nine months ended September 28, 2019.

Our working capital was $921.8 million at September 26, 2020, compared to $1,047.2 million at December 28, 2019. At September 26, 2020 and December 28, 2019, our current ratio (which is the ratio of our current assets to current liabilities) was 2.1:1 and 2.9:1, respectively. Our working capital decreased primarily due to the increase in cash from operations and the reclassification of $230.0 million of Senior Notes from Long-Term Debt to Short-Term Debt. We plan to use capacity under our Multicurrency Revolving Facility to payoff these notes.

The following table presents selected financial information and statistics as of September 26, 2020 and December 28, 2019 (in millions):

Working Capital921.8 1,047.2 
Current Ratio2.1 :12.9 :1

At September 26, 2020 our cash and cash equivalents totaled $487.5 million, of which $468.1 million was held by foreign subsidiaries and could be used in our domestic operations if necessary. We periodically evaluate our cash held outside the US and may pursue opportunities to repatriate certain foreign cash amounts. As a result of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017, dividends to the US no longer incur US tax.

We will, from time to time, maintain excess cash balances which may be used to (i) fund operations, (ii) repay outstanding debt, (iii) fund acquisitions, (iv) pay dividends, (v) make investments in new product development programs, (vi) repurchase our common stock, or (vii) fund other corporate objectives.

Credit Agreement
On August 27, 2018 we entered into an Amended and Restated Credit Agreement (the “Credit Agreement”) with JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., as Administrative Agent and the lenders named therein, providing for a (i) 5-year unsecured term loan facility in the principal amount of $900.0 million (the “Term Facility”) and (ii) a 5-year unsecured multicurrency revolving facility in the principal amount of $500.0 million (the “Multicurrency Revolving Facility”), including a $50.0 million letter of credit sub facility, available for general corporate purposes. Borrowings under the Credit Agreement bear interest at floating rates based upon indices determined by the currency of the borrowing, plus an applicable margin determined by reference to our consolidated funded debt to consolidated EBITDA ratio or at an alternative base rate.
The Term Facility was drawn in full on August 27, 2018 with the proceeds settling the amounts owed under prior borrowings. The Term Facility requires quarterly amortization at a rate starting at 5.0% per annum, increasing to 7.5% per annum after three years and further increasing to 10.0% per annum for the last year of the Term Facility, unless previously prepaid. The weighted average interest rate on the Term Facility for the three months ended September 26, 2020 and September 28, 2019 was 1.5% and 3.6%, respectively. The weighted average interest rate on the Term Facility for the nine months ended September 26, 2020 and September 28, 2019 was 2.1% and 3.8%, respectively. The Credit Agreement requires that we prepay the loans under the Term Facility with 100% of the net cash proceeds received from specified asset sales and borrowed money indebtedness, subject to certain exceptions.
At September 26, 2020, we had borrowings under the Multicurrency Revolving Facility in the amount of nil, $0.2 million of standby letters of credit issued under the facility, and $499.8 million of available borrowing capacity. For the three months ended September 26, 2020 and September 28, 2019 under the Multicurrency Revolving Facility, the average daily balance in borrowings was $51.4 million and $127.1 million, respectively and weighted average interest rate of 1.5% and 3.6%, respectively. For the nine months ended September 26, 2020 and September 28, 2019 under the Multicurrency Revolving Facility, the average daily balance in borrowings was $189.7 million and $91.3 million, respectively, and the weighted average interest rate of 2.1% and 3.7%, respectively. We pay a non-use fee on the aggregate unused amount of the Multicurrency Revolving Facility at a rate determined by reference to its consolidated funded debt to consolidated EBITDA ratio.
Senior Notes
At September 26, 2020, we had $400.0 million of senior notes (the “Notes”) outstanding. The Notes consist of $400.0 million in senior notes in a private placement which were issued in five tranches with maturities from ten to twelve years and carry fixed interest rates. As of September 26, 2020, $230.0 million and $170.0 million of the Notes are included in Current Maturities of Long-Term Debt and Long-Term Debt, respectively on the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets. The Notes maturing in 2021 will be paid using capacity on our Multicurrency Revolving Facility.
The following table presents details on the Notes at September 26, 2020 (in millions):
PrincipalInterest RateMaturity

Fixed Rate Series 2011A170.0 4.9 to 5.1%July 14, 2023
$400.0 
We have an interest rate swap agreement to manage fluctuations in cash flows resulting from interest rate risk (see also Note 14 of Notes to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements).

Compliance with Financial Covenants

The Credit Agreement and the Notes require us to meet specified financial ratios and to satisfy certain financial condition tests. We were in compliance with all financial covenants contained in the Notes and the Credit Agreement as of September 26, 2020.

Other Notes Payable

At September 26, 2020, other notes payable of approximately $4.3 million were outstanding with a weighted average interest rate of 4.9%. At December 28, 2019, other notes payable of approximately $4.5 million were outstanding with a weighted average rate of 5.0%.

Other Disclosures

Based on rates for instruments with comparable maturities and credit quality, which are classified as Level 2 inputs (see also Note 15 of Notes to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements), the approximate fair value of our total debt was $1,087.3 million and $1,162.1 million as of September 26, 2020 and December 28, 2019, respectively.

Critical Accounting Policies
Our disclosures of critical accounting policies, which are contained in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 28, 2019, have not materially changed since that report was filed.

ITEM 3. QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK
We are exposed to market risk relating to our operations due to changes in interest rates, foreign currency exchange rates and commodity prices of purchased raw materials. We manage the exposure to these risks through a combination of normal operating and financing activities and derivative financial instruments such as interest rate swaps, commodity cash flow hedges and foreign currency forward exchange contracts. All hedging transactions are authorized and executed pursuant to clearly defined policies and procedures, which prohibit the use of financial instruments for speculative purposes.
All qualified hedges are recorded on the balance sheet at fair value and are accounted for as cash flow hedges, with changes in fair value recorded in Accumulated Other comprehensive Income (Loss) (“AOCI”) in each accounting period. An ineffective portion of the hedges change in fair value, if any, is recorded in earnings in the period of change.
Interest Rate Risk
We are exposed to interest rate risk on certain of our outstanding debt obligations used to finance our operations and acquisitions. Loans under the Credit Agreement bear interest at variable rates plus a margin, based on our consolidated net leverage ratio. At September 26, 2020, excluding the impact of interest rate swaps, we had $404.1 million of fixed rate debt and $670.2 million of variable rate debt. We utilize interest rate swaps to manage fluctuations in cash flows resulting from exposure to interest rate risk on forecasted variable rate interest payments.
We have floating rate borrowings, which expose us to variability in interest payments due to changes in interest rates. A hypothetical 10% change in our weighted average borrowing rate on outstanding variable rate debt at September 26, 2020 would result in a $0.9 million change in after-tax annualized earnings. In April 2018, we entered into a spot, non-amortizing interest rate swap to pay fixed/receive floating with a notional amount of $88.4 million to manage fluctuations in cash flows from interest rate risk related to floating rate interest. The swap expires in April 2021. We also entered into two forward starting pay fixed/receive floating non-amortizing interest rate swaps in June 2020, with a total notional amount of $250.0 million to managed fluctuations in cash flows from interest rate risk related to floating rate interest. These swaps become effective July 2021 and will expire in July 2025. Upon inception, the swaps were designated as a cash flow hedges against forecasted interest payments under ASU 2017-12, with gains and losses, net of tax, measured on an ongoing basis, recorded in AOCI.
Details regarding the instruments as of September 26, 2020 are as follows (in millions):
InstrumentNotional AmountMaturityRate PaidRate ReceivedFair Value
Swap$88.4April 20212.5%LIBOR (1 month)$(1.2)
Swap$250.0July 20250.6%LIBOR (1 month)$(2.0)
As of September 26, 2020, the interest rate swap liability of $(1.2) million was included in Current Hedging Obligations and $(2.0) million in Noncurrent Hedging Obligations. The unrealized loss on the effective portion of the contract net of tax of $(2.5) million was recorded in AOCI. At December 28, 2019, a $(1.0) million interest rate swap liability was included in Noncurrent Hedging Obligations.
In July 2017, the United Kingdom Financial Conduct Authority (the authority that regulates LIBOR) announced it intends to stop persuading or compelling banks to submit rates for the calculation of LIBOR after 2021. We have material exposure to LIBOR through our revolving credit facility, certain lines of credit and interest rate swaps that are indexed to USD-LIBOR. It is expected that LIBOR will be discontinued and, while we believe an acceptable replacement to LIBOR will be available, if LIBOR is discontinued, we cannot reasonably estimate the impact, if any, on such discontinuation.
45


Foreign Currency Risk
We are exposed to foreign currency risks that arise from normal business operations. These risks include the translation of local currency balances of foreign subsidiaries, intercompany loans with foreign subsidiaries and transactions denominated in foreign currencies. Our objective is to minimize our exposure to these risks through a combination of normal operating activities and the utilization of foreign currency exchange contracts to manage our exposure on the forecasted transactions denominated in currencies other than the applicable functional currency. Contracts are executed with credit worthy banks and are denominated in currencies of major industrial countries. We do not hedge our exposure to the translation of reported results of foreign subsidiaries from local currency to United States dollars.
As of September 26, 2020, derivative currency assets (liabilities) of $9.8 million, $1.0 million, $(6.8) million and $(0.3) million, are recorded in Prepaid Expenses and Other Current Assets, Other Noncurrent Assets, Current Hedging Obligations, and Noncurrent Hedging Obligations, respectively. As of December 28, 2019, derivative currency assets (liabilities) of $8.9 million, $10.3 million, $(3.1) million and $(0.2) million, are recorded in Prepaid Expenses and Other Current Assets, Other Noncurrent Assets, Current Hedging Obligations and Noncurrent Hedging Obligations, respectively. The unrealized (losses) gains on the effective portions of the hedges of $(0.6) million net of tax, and $5.7 million net of tax, as of September 26, 2020 and December 28, 2019 respectively, were recorded in AOCI. At September 26, 2020, we had $(2.0) million, net of tax, of derivative currency losses on closed hedge instruments in AOCI that will be realized in earnings when the hedged items impact earnings. At December 28, 2019, we had $2.1 million, net of tax, currency gains on closed hedge instruments in AOCI that will be realized in earnings when the hedged items impact earnings.
The following table quantifies the outstanding foreign exchange contracts intended to hedge non-US dollar denominated receivables and payables and the corresponding impact on the value of these instruments assuming a hypothetical 10% appreciation/depreciation of their counter currency on September 26, 2020 (in millions):

Thai Baht6.2 (0.1)0.6 (0.6)
Gains and losses indicated in the sensitivity analysis would be offset by gains and losses on the underlying forecasted non-US dollar denominated cash flows.
Commodity Price Risk
We periodically enter into commodity hedging transactions to reduce the impact of changing prices for certain commodities such as copper and aluminum based upon forecasted purchases of such commodities. Qualified hedge transactions are designated as cash flow hedges and the contract terms of commodity hedge instruments generally mirror those of the hedged item, providing a high degree of risk reduction and correlation.
Derivative commodity assets (liabilities) of $6.8 million were recorded in Prepaid Expenses and Other Current Assets at September 26, 2020. Derivative commodity assets (liabilities) of $2.6 million, $0.1 million and $(0.3) million were recorded in Prepaid Expenses and Other Noncurrent Assets and Current Hedging Obligations, respectively, at December 28, 2019. The unrealized gain on the effective portion of the hedges of $5.1 million net of tax and $1.8 million net of tax, as of September 26, 2020 and December 28, 2019, respectively, was recorded in AOCI. At September 26, 2020, we had $1.5 million, net of tax, of derivative commodity gains on closed hedge instruments in AOCI that will be realized in earnings when the hedged items impact earnings. At December 28, 2019, there was an additional $(0.8) million, net of tax, of derivative commodity losses on closed hedge instruments in AOCI that were realized into earnings when the hedged items impacted earnings.

Gains and losses indicated in the sensitivity analysis would be offset by the actual prices of the commodities.
The net AOCI hedging component balance of a $1.5 million gains at September 26, 2020 includes $4.0 million of net current deferred losses expected to be realized in the next twelve months. The gain/loss reclassified from AOCI into earnings on such derivatives will be recognized in the same period in which the related item affects earnings.
Counterparty Risk
We are exposed to credit losses in the event of non-performance by the counterparties to various financial agreements, including our interest rate swap agreements, foreign currency exchange contracts and commodity hedging transactions. We manage exposure to counterparty credit risk by limiting our counterparties to major international banks and financial institutions meeting established credit guidelines and continually monitoring their compliance with the credit guidelines. We do not obtain collateral or other security to support financial instruments subject to credit risk. We do not anticipate non-performance by our counterparties, but cannot provide assurances.

ITEM 4. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES
Disclosure Controls and Procedures
The Company’s management, with the participation of the Company’s Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, has evaluated the effectiveness of the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures (as such term is defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”)) as of the end of the period covered by this report. Based on such evaluation, the Company’s Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer have concluded that, as of the end of such period, the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures were effective to ensure that (a) information required to be disclosed in the reports that we file or submit under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the rules and forms of the Securities and Exchange Commission, and (b) information required to be disclosed by us in the reports the Company files or submits under the Exchange Act is accumulated and communicated to our management, including its Chief Executive Officer and its Chief Financial Officer, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

PART II—OTHER INFORMATION

ITEM 1. LEGAL PROCEEDINGS
There have been no material changes in the legal matters described in Part I, Item 3 in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 28, 2019, which is incorporated herein by reference.

ITEM 1A. RISK FACTORS
Our business and financial results are subject to numerous risks and uncertainties. The following risk factor supplements the risk factors reported in Part I, Item 1A in our 2019 Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 28, 2019, which is incorporated herein by reference.
The COVID-19 pandemic has adversely impacted our business and could continue to have a material adverse impact on our business, results of operation, financial condition, liquidity, customers, suppliers, and the geographies in which we operate.
47


The COVID-19 pandemic has significantly increased economic, demand and operational uncertainty. We have global operations, customers and suppliers, including in countries most impacted by COVID-19. Authorities around the world have taken a variety of measures to slow the spread of COVID-19, including travel bans or restrictions, increased border controls or closures, quarantines, shelter-in-place orders and business shutdowns and such authorities may impose additional restrictions. We have also taken actions to protect our employees and to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, including embracing guidelines set by the World Health Organization and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on social distancing, good hygiene, restrictions on employee travel and in-person meetings, and changes to employee work arrangements including remote work arrangements where feasible. The actions taken around the world to slow the spread of COVID-19 have also impacted our customers and suppliers, and future developments could cause further disruptions to us due to the interconnected nature of our business relationships.
The impact of COVID-19 on the global economy and our customers, as well as recent volatility in commodity markets, has negatively impacted demand for our products and could continue to do so in the future. Its effects could also result in further disruptions to our manufacturing operations, including higher rates of employee absenteeism, and supply chain, which could continue to negatively impact our ability to meet customer demand. Additionally, the potential deterioration and volatility of credit and financial markets could limit our ability to obtain external financing. The extent to which COVID-19 will impact our business, results of operations, financial condition or liquidity is highly uncertain and will depend on future developments, including the spread and duration of the virus, potential actions taken by governmental authorities, and how quickly economic conditions stabilize and recover.
For additional information regarding risks and uncertainties facing the Company, please also see the information provided under the header “Cautionary Statement” contained in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q.

ITEM 2. UNREGISTERED SALES OF EQUITY SECURITIES AND USE OF PROCEEDS
There were no repurchases of our common stock during the current quarter. 

Under our equity incentive plans, participants may pay the exercise price or satisfy all or a portion of the federal, state and local withholding tax obligations arising in connection with plan awards by electing to (a) have the Company withhold shares of common stock otherwise issuable under the award, (b) tender back shares received in connection with such award or (c) deliver other previously owned shares of common stock, in each case having a value equal to the exercise price or the amount to be withheld. During the quarter ended September 26, 2020, we did not acquire any shares in connection with transactions pursuant to equity incentive plans.
At a meeting of the Board of Directors on July 24, 2018, the Company's Board of Directors approved the extinguishment of the existing 3.0 million share repurchase program that was approved in November 2013 and replaced it with an authorization to purchase up to $250.0 million of shares. At a meeting of the Board of Directors on October 25, 2019, the July 2018 repurchase authorization was extinguished and replaced with an authorization to purchase up to $250.0 million of shares.
