David Farr

You second What's are to right don't be you why answer XX. to Bob, first? going half decremental your close now?

Robert Sharp

down XX% going went of are to sales to teens. Yes, magnitude order we and the around deleverage that’s where

difference activities But and sales a in the it’s So last reduction very sales platforms. a even many in the of magnitude year, with two as certainly that second strong decline, Dave versus between plants. the SG&A mentioned bit the half of

the very be very disruptive again now the is The to deleverage to as of volume, right going which is Covid-XX, challenging. as well plants

David Farr

productivity. a From

sales are I whole year, trying think target add, some I even thing to down Bob, to the you with still looking other want EBITDA are improvement we the at. margin for the

the case. that’s So still

Robert Sharp

it’s going are to to there hurt is to this we up. difficult Yes, But total last to volume in we point. decline, for year. EBITDA year be going but to at looking be at this very are going Adjusted for versus be the point hold strong be whole

David Farr

now, and issue which the two impact plant, within some a very, big And frustrating. the issue answer productivity as Nicole, day, I’ll our let for to in shutdown plants very get important. that the will overcome then safety And clean. very, hard It’s operate to and days to, facilities is is Lal have very we right big

shut You have have a you to your situation back up. often then down, got people you

back. your think So it’s another is hand situation tied overall that behind well. But with that all pretty I doing

So, Lal, anything you want to add?

Robert Sharp

Yes. Thanks Nicole. Hi, David.

March which our impact is us. That’s leverage quarter third accelerates third most One being the by America business’ factors. predominantly North challenging in quarter within the the two rates QX quarter the most is to The ship for significant range from driven in impact. clearly and into XX% book

from Andrew go of from comes ahead. Please question next Bank Obin America. The

Andrew Obin

Good morning. Yes.

David Farr

morning. Good or it guess, Andrew. I is afternoon morning, good

Andrew Obin

Yes.

David Farr

Don’t this for get I ahead. morning use just Go either. used stuff.

Andrew Obin

Just some the questions.

you that great comparison the crisis. what financial at GDP forecasts the even But we bottoms with the I to the and the XXXX, saw better. than that are understand XXXX in for is Looking XXXX up going back guys seems making company it be weaker

Yes, embedded perspective your assumptions the there revenue that in are performance or other the well? by seems changes driven to better crisis. than a as macro just from there all be financial in portfolio Is

David Farr

The number one hot, financial the went issue, into we wanting Andrew, crisis strong. is

We are very strong.

double-digits. We are growing

the So curve – dropped we that hit of and hit. was are in biggest a we growing then hard we and so got that

year. structured flat you well a for basically year we a this As were know

a had this year a flat couple what way last – was he is to bottom, was up slightly originally. it thought bit Lal down. We it’s

strongly issue thing then differently that the But business are out. went we growing are second one, going the the are mix we when and from fell last is cycle. into a the since cycle the bottom we is to differently and So very of we structured big the

year. the collapse The biggest difference, bottom had it. That’s started last This already for Andrew. one we were ready

Andrew Obin

a just second And question.

just talk a is what specifically or Are if couple aggressive you In money, of what but would doing you are are you just that you it that or of do and you spending move it. think ago didn’t detail in to now could XXXX restructuring, you talking you in have to couldn’t on about logistically more you you terms of footprint more is can just to months there if that being are us share as you. publicly. opportunities more Thank fast terms

David Farr

Yes.

are we into the of that XXXX. do trying we more is facility – are we the programs, sort One programs So, avenues here. had to fixed accelerate what two there is programs built cost the

We second accelerate are into trying the to of those XXXX. half

come those running cost can have and back, get sooner because facilities want structure. to spike the new those we up done So at lower does when we

right now. necessarily are platforms, what looking are can the and overall get we how and structural we the at perspective. more a need in the both as out them thing as layers them and how corporate more being company we consolidations do a take done the the and learn are of we Secondly, bit from two we aggressive run third which don’t we we what little and that on how we of company these world is, I earlier, fast layers said the different some And to

So are if And – we at are those not do from that and everything carefully sort need doing are perspective. we we to are and it. we it, don’t things of very going just looking that’s

as So of different go going that’s a on this view pandemic lot what’s that war. through we

add? I think, Lal you to want

Lal Karsanbhai

facility us on best the rationalization, cost sites. on the is Obviously, David. building Thanks, dependent it Yes.

that accelerating of this as best execute time So that’s those we building plants plans. They underway, can. can are obviously some we

purely further decisions businesses. So identified the and identifying to lot around of don’t related David’s across Andrew point, incrementally do a then and on opportunities what headcount do what we we’ve has been delayering volume

categories. two those – the are Those

payback leaning Andrew and as we in it execute second very here the As quick the half about what hard as to we talked on XXXX restructuring. New York, we that’s quicker and accelerate on restructuring this

David Farr

do to Bob, want add? you

Robert Sharp

but is and organization everybody have thing the cuts. are a say I’d Certainly, freezes frankly, we SG&A the the I just practically with non-existence. do volume. a our wage same else at things discretionary, as think volume-related level, going just peak easy to of plan Well, lot And into like that, it’s doing did most isn’t of is not necessarily part

when year But get making at of have least we work be now and payback some we at some on least hope or right able say we ones. So I positions it. that for the and it’s are tough to stuff a to hope just with wouldn’t two very without we’ll so a this dramatic in back last peak choices the to it’s volume of really of part we do dealing get certainly – cycle plan. come the It’s sales part

and the not lot deal down Even a we Does second salary, and pretty But whole side, volume operational half all can going. with of this more affect do to manufacturing again, the costs, here rents at that the not right over are returning answers? year. the is a dramatic quickly. trying we slide this plants that’s There that in will now

Andrew Obin

Yes.

Just low-cost a in about? environment question, have what supply of fracturing global you given essentially talked your chains of are facilities that this this definition people

David Farr

at answer use no. We the We evaluation look logistics. best relative cost to always and is the word

about strategy, think you chain. If about we think logistics, supply regional our

be site a that will we use some five we and changes people as rebalancing or seven rebalancing think fundamentally that I years at look matrix did years there about ago. or six

we that take as will forward look a here. at go We

the right has that XXXX. best changed, we of the we cost again perspective, are our not constant tweak We’ll of basis. a from tweak matrix But – it end at now But definition on no.

Josh Pokrzywinski

what imagine some of about I who which your or kind as that. zero longer it. folks maybe And appreciate want the from do, speed morning to of I’d then, of just go up make think kind is just to likely, calibrate kind Got budget and show erase cycle the and the don’t I doesn’t hard of that happened decisions one forward. they of customers

enough you from had At what clarity everything get i.e. think they’ve point and to back customers, do you your get to time scrub you.

So in not they what I are that want do? would quite – where moment to you yet imagine

David Farr

it’s Frank a lot you in no, And a higher reason financial lot – for than liquidity but one is faster. covered percent crisis. to is this I mean, is the and one what lot faster the Josh, is back the it reason goes it this XXX% a a think.

in really early thing very on they jump this to So, had on February and March.

don’t yes. changes? represent that think be guys is Now The will that – fundamental have there as missed made well some think changes. But don’t answer you if I that these you some you

room both at are the spread living customers’ The input. and we out downstairs it both get is every together Bob OCE At OCE, the of in a day. talking X We from us, board and were Lal and daily. O’clock big are we

Bob, being you a would And much and finalize one want make bit we'll than on I little probably think. that? anything us allowed it. this down is So to as quarter, further add together faster. pace these adjustments But you faster are say to some this guys that pipe

Robert Sharp

that’s knows a that No I lot what right. nobody to think is expect. And really of because

Whether large customer bad. freeze small So it’s freezing or in everybody that customer, quickly. event very they is a a

I to the will from about Slide ask take leave sequential Pete June XX, that offline, I downtick July going that. ask that about I’ll but was to on one.

You have a modest sequential downtick there.

detail. the of guidance. all so, guys given anyway companies we really you Okay, Most withdrawing are a Obviously, have lot appreciate here. detail

been have of how I visibility for And half? do $XX a booked simple save? How you queued said the in first half. you cost the up question. the think saves much cost million you much of this XXXX? then second How for Just do on much very of have kind have

David Farr

here. the We numbers do have

what then number this week, – the is what Let’s first work We quarter-by-quarter is Board the and showed we in last basically it. second Steve, next them year. and also half, work the half showed we

Lal, point for do to in have time? fall queued So savings this into this you what at

Lal Karsanbhai

What plan, $XX to million. $XXX the savings first reset, goes million We of the in activities half kind from the and into we restructuring just of in other spent the half. recognized first

David Farr

Okay.

Lal Karsanbhai

Okay.

of $XXX in be will savings million. excuse year restructuring We and $XXX half in half combined a the the – million. me, second Second

David Farr

first the has make… – the running year? tell then something? to So, what a half you Clearly, next the did Board XXX incremental you would going out into are of what And be about

Lal Karsanbhai

runrate obviously do off from year. this what There because we the plans changed not doing February. are impacts, incrementally will I be

David Farr

the allows quarter second next go half and The big them the in savings first then will year. into

Steve Tusa

Thanks. Okay.

you be kind still of you variance there into so pull will year-over-year or all a this pretty So of into into XXXX? year some that – heading did carryover have decent

David Farr

on What board, you the XX saw XX. and

Lal Karsanbhai

well, – spend not you spend, did Right, but million. expected I I go into with will $XX is XXXX in to be XXXX our share

David Farr

million. $XX

Lal Karsanbhai

not that have changed number. I

David Farr

million. $XX

have – savings some dollar-to-dollar longer carry to will So, because you’ll they have some to But over. although be going the and have we’d they still stuff will are million in term going $XX on therefore some be still some that’s accelerate it ones.

year. million another in So, we’ll the $XX next probably year have whole

Lal Karsanbhai

a perspective, $XX give you there XXXX. to in David, was Just million

David Farr

Yes.

Lal Karsanbhai

$XXX There in XXXX. will be million

David Farr

Yes.

Lal Karsanbhai

another $XX in then million And XXXX.

David Farr

dollar in Yes. We’ll that. quickly pretty get dollar for savings

Robert Sharp

will we And residential, this are benefit capture for we commercial for the about restructuring year, year. XX% the savings of doing this programs

beyond had So will and course set well. actions lay and then we for as that in we got carry hold XXXX over of another about into XX% that XXXX, to of

Steve Tusa

Okay.

Robert Sharp

things half have once coming think we’ll like be offset the of in we cut, the still will institute that. of will I into half year. the because year Steve, savings have first will next salary first But to the we

come to will numbers back. those have That’s half. million doing for So the around $X.X second

$X.X So per million quarter.

year The numbers all salary next will will planning out. that too, us hit back roll because for

things doing will second to how number dramatically curve returns. are of of that furloughing, we if there the the sales again in on be half is So, this depending return. to some you thing Certainly, a

David Farr

prior Yes, at now. right and inefficient plants the like I of flow on cost pace what’s now nicely. much is as the flowing right this decremental thing real But with is finish will going bridge through the in and look key savings the year. and pretty cost savings we I the are then

Steve Tusa

some that. be going to And that. accelerate why mind in you kind I million said into pushed you background is the higher a there those? more just in mean than the seems was embedded threw I kind number I do of thought had $XX you substantially little do and out of of numbers these feel, earlier a or year there XXXX

David Farr

number last for a Yes, we XX year. had

are we’ve done we the you that I think and numbers higher more very we and bigger happened lot But we are are think that what’s obviously now, more I numbers shared is to with because because have numbers savings Steve, short-term they are similar to in accelerate. this. a February trying now they

are going So, are the up at the But same up. the costs going time. savings

we now is that right probably are we more living over And action in cost have we the this We’ll at out because are figure down. to to carry we right point. how now. are dark a that’s mean, drive have where our I doing period more issue

things I’ve it’s tie other back I than to numbers about always earlier. But are said talked to phone. So over the the bigger hard

Steve Tusa

I just quarter, of gave sequencing, the Right. fourth quarter and quarterly Yes, of because to you And the nail third then one just quick down, wanted one. kind kind fourth the and obviously cost-cutting of revenue mechanics kind sequentially that flowing EPS quarter basis. stabilization step-up and this you essentially through is kind the basically a Is of an on that of the then all get.

the in kind in down, revenue that see hard is of of going fourth it really don’t second quarter. see you You the because how quarter, but

to to fourth is or in the kind it of Just moving to reconcile $X.XX trying this $X.XX $X.XX whatever the quarter?

David Farr

XXX% Steve. correct,

extremely team something about XXth taking, okay we we coming we I now, got that, working think guys, March started hard the and out started right here. started, of

a hitting so, lot right around seeing wave And what you is this saw world. is the now as us are we harder

believe actions taken will and stabilize June. into time get we we’ve So the we by fundamentally

cost at why will be lot actions That’s will Business happening still have that through. our we a as and volume the up. but will our are level obviously – more we while start savings stepping down, stabilizes flowing

is other to a The had XXXX. thing you you a that, comment make I’ll going performance program since I variable all back we’ve – think early know share always

report we base we Chart that we started off and happened dramatically is the what’s hard by got our price shareholder showed wealth On is of of dropped locked when including X on a people me the Bob stock It Lal. of the showed – stock has hit locked like been quarter – first obviously in on first very and lot quarter February, Frank up. quarter Chart the going $X.XX this because and X

the variable lot is that lower cost. obviously plan But

So therefore we quarter. got a benefit this

up. assuming stock start stabilize will our price coming We are and back

little recovery. So we a of are factoring bit

based We’ve plant number we’ve So on had mark-to-market and you variable we a the second and all will the negative know over a as have half times. year. of out right the we now in always pointed

some including dropping will that Europe. We get to the our out in trend we Joe. for right starting are stabilization quite international But markets rapidly. now, everybody, line see But

point, thoughts last really of know But of the so, kind just So the mean, China the XQ U.S. in you exactly into I it’s pattern as the following that how on that the we recovery head is Dave, year, hard that how growth when to be? going influencing in progress much think as improvement into about and the guess we is your XXXX? to I shape and through U.S. around

David Farr

said It’s to happen like of that people a it way. only sickness down that They shut seems controlled China I – from It think Joe, They earlier make not my this society. hard. was comparison the comparison. work same somehow in regions. that perspective, earlier is same extremely a I couple hard. to

around facilities, we in from in a came structurally. from learned standpoint our in we obviously, world. What safety the facilities they are China using And other

think I a completely Europe and cycle the It different But structure the looking at will is we different. a obviously. So U.S. are is completely help and cycle. here completely China different us

It’s in world. a different

time looking muted of So more it’s more U negative, the we see out a then back in U.S. a a in far longer structure stay do down half of at far in second back of to this and not we shaped are XXXX. type and what snap We U.S. at the is more gradually would are much say point going I it come quick

calendar needed, fourth fourth in somehow stuff. start that could I there away, think the quarter, that right to this back that’s we to the But going more testing got everyone quarter we we Now, work the of year. be if got third the seeing – maybe

this. model Lal let So sales U.S. Bob I am about the very and talk I’ll negative on and
