Alamo Group Inc. and Subsidiaries
Notes to Interim Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements - (Unaudited)
March 31, 2022
 
1.  Basis of Financial Statement Presentation

General

The accompanying unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements of Alamo Group Inc. and its subsidiaries (the “Company”) have been prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) for interim financial information and with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulations S-X.  Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by U.S. GAAP for complete financial statements.  In the opinion of management, all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring accruals) considered necessary for a fair presentation have been included.  Operating results for the periods presented are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ending December 31, 2022.  The balance sheet at December 31, 2021 has been derived from the audited financial statements at that date but does not include all of the information and footnotes required by U.S. GAAP for complete financial statements.  For further information, refer to the consolidated financial statements and footnotes thereto included in the Company’s annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021 (the "2021 10-K").

Effective July 1, 2021, the Company changed its method of accounting for its U.S. inventories from last-in, first-out ("LIFO") method to the first-in, first-out ("FIFO") method. The Company applied this change retrospectively for all prior periods presented.

Accounting Pronouncements Not Yet Adopted

In March 2020, the FASB issued ASU No. 2020-04, “Reference Rate Reform (Topic 848): Facilitation of the Effects of Reference Rate Reform on Financial Reporting”. This Topic provides accounting relief for the transition away from LIBOR and certain other reference rates. The amendments for this update are effective through December 31, 2022. The Company is evaluating the impact the adoption of this standard will have on our financial statements.

2. Business Combinations

On October 26, 2021, the Company acquired 100% of the issued and outstanding equity interests of Timberwolf Limited (“Timberwolf”). Timberwolf manufactures a broad range of commercial wood chippers, primarily serving markets in the U.K. and the European Union. The primary reason for the Timberwolf acquisition was to enhance the Company's forestry and tree care platform for growth by increasing both the Company's product portfolio and capabilities in the European market. The acquisition price was approximately $25.0 million. The Company has included the operating results of Timberwolf in its consolidated financial statements since the date of acquisition, these results are considered immaterial.

3.  Accounts Receivable

Accounts receivable is shown net of sales discounts and the allowance for credit losses.

At March 31, 2022 the Company had $17.1 million in reserves for sales discounts compared to $12.6 million at December 31, 2021 related to products shipped to our customers under various promotional programs.

Raw materials13,370 18,262 
Inventories, net$355,389 $320,917 
 
Inventory obsolescence reserves were $14.0 million at March 31, 2022 and $12.9 million at December 31, 2021.

5. Rental Equipment

Rental equipment is shown net of accumulated depreciation of $19.8 million and $20.1 million at March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, respectively. The Company recognized depreciation expense of $1.9 million and $2.2 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021.

6.  Fair Value Measurements
 
The carrying values of certain financial instruments, including cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable, accounts payable, and accrued expenses, approximate their fair value because of the short-term nature of these items. The carrying value of our debt approximates the fair value as of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, as the floating rates on our outstanding balances approximate current market rates. This conclusion was made based on Level 2 inputs.

Overview
 
This report contains forward-looking statements that are based on Alamo Group’s current expectations.  Actual results in future periods may differ materially from those expressed or implied because of a number of risks and uncertainties which are discussed below and in the Forward-Looking Information section. Unless the context otherwise requires, the terms the "Company", "we", "our" and "us" means Alamo Group Inc.
 
We experienced continued strong demand for our products during the first quarter of 2022. In January, COVID-19 variant cases created operational disruptions at several of our North American and European facilities but the number of cases has diminished. Our top line performance was strong in the first quarter but margins have continued to be constrained by higher material and freight costs, as well as ongoing supply chain disruptions which have had a negative effect on our manufacturing efficiencies. While we have taken action to mitigate supply chain disruptions, we expect these challenges to continue for the remainder of 2022.

For the first three months of 2022, the Company's net sales increased by 16%, and net income increased by 6% compared to the same period in 2021. The increase in both net sales and net income was primarily due to continued strong customer demand for our products compared to the prior year which was impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Offsetting the increase were disruptions in our supply chain, significant input cost inflation (including increased freight and material costs), and logistics issues.

The Company's Vegetation Management Division experienced a 20% increase in sales for the first three months of 2022 compared to the first three months of 2021 primarily as a result of increased customer demand as well as pricing actions. The Division's new orders and backlog improved in all product lines. The Division's income from operations for the first three months of 2022 was up 9% versus the same period in 2021, due to increased demand but offset by higher material and freight costs and supply chain disruptions which had a negative effect on manufacturing efficiencies.

The Company's Industrial Equipment Division sales increased in the first three months of 2022 by 11% as compared to the first three months of 2021. Industrial Equipment sales were strong in the excavator and vacuum truck product lines supported by solid yet modest increases in street sweeper, debris collector and snow removal equipment. Negatively impacting this Division in the quarter were higher input costs and supply chain disruptions which affected manufacturing efficiencies. Notwithstanding these challenges, the Division's income from operations recorded a 24% improvement for the first three months of 2022 compared to the first three months of 2021.

15


Consolidated income from operations was $29.1 million in the first three months of 2022 compared to $25.4 million in the first three months of 2021, an increase of 14%. The Company's backlog increased 103% to $917.8 million at the end of the first quarter of 2022 versus a backlog of $452.5 million at the end of the first quarter of 2021. The increase in the Company's backlog was primarily attributable to strong customer demand for our products in both Divisions as outlined above.

The effects of the COVID-19 pandemic continue to impact our business and operations. While we have seen a decline of COVID-19 cases in our facilities and in the markets we serve, new strains of the disease and/or a resurgence of cases could negatively impact us in the future by, among other things, reducing overall customer demand for our products or creating significant operational disruptions in our manufacturing facilities that could lead to delayed deliveries and/or production inefficiencies and higher costs. The indirect effects of the pandemic, including supply chain and logistics challenges, the unavailability of certain raw materials and key product components, input cost inflation and labor shortages, continue to negatively impact us and are likely to persist in the near-term.

While the direct and indirect consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic continue to pose significant challenges, the Company may also be negatively affected by several other factors such as changes in tariff regulations and the imposition of new tariffs, ongoing trade disputes, further supply chain issues, changes in U.S. fiscal policy such as changes in the federal tax rate, weakness in the overall world-wide economy, significant changes in currency exchange rates, negative economic impacts resulting from geopolitical events such as the war in Ukraine, changes in trade policy, increased levels of government regulations, weakness in the agricultural sector, acquisition integration issues, budget constraints or revenue shortfalls in governmental entities, and other risks and uncertainties as described in “Risk Factors" section in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021 (the "2021 Form 10-K").

Results of Operations
 
Three Months Ended March 31, 2022 vs. Three Months Ended March 31, 2021
 
Net sales for the first quarter of 2022 were $362.0 million, an increase of $50.8 million or 16% compared to $311.2 million for the first quarter of 2021. Net sales during the first quarter of 2022 improved due to strong customer demand for our products versus the first quarter of 2021. Negatively affecting the first quarter of 2022 were higher costs for materials, inbound freight and supply chain disruptions which caused shortages of component parts.
 
Net Vegetation Management sales increased by $37.1 million or 20% to $221.0 million for the first quarter of 2022 compared to $183.9 million during the same period in 2021. The increase was due to strong performance in all product lines particularly agricultural, forestry and tree care and governmental mowing equipment in both North America and Europe. Supply chain and logistics disruptions had an overall negative impact during the first quarter of 2022.
 
Net Industrial Equipment sales were $141.0 million in the first quarter of 2022 compared to $127.3 million for the same period in 2021, an increase of $13.7 million or 11%. The increase was mainly due to the continued solid results in excavator and vacuum truck product lines with modest support from other product lines. This Division also continued to experience supply chain disruptions and logistics issues in the first quarter of 2022, including delays in receiving truck chassis and component parts from supply chain partners.

Gross profit for the first quarter of 2022 was $86.6 million (24% of net sales) compared to $76.4 million (25% of net sales) during the same period in 2021, an increase of $10.2 million.  The increase in gross profit during the first quarter of 2022 compared to the first quarter of 2021 was the result of higher sales volume. Profitability in the quarter was negatively impacted by shortages of component parts, which created manufacturing inefficiencies, along with higher costs of materials and inbound freight. These factors had a negative effect on the Company's gross margin percentage during the first quarter of 2022.

Selling, general and administrative expenses (“SG&A”) were $53.6 million (15% of net sales) during the first quarter of 2022 compared to $47.3 million (15% of net sales) during the same period of 2021, an increase of $6.3 million. The increase in SG&A expense in the first quarter of 2022 compared to the first quarter of 2021 was
16


attributable to higher administrative, marketing and engineering expenses as the Company returned to pre-pandemic expense levels. Amortization expense in the first quarter of 2022 was $3.9 million compared to $3.7 million in the same period in 2021, an increase of $0.2 million.

Interest expense was $2.6 million for the first quarter of 2022 compared to $2.6 million during the same period in 2021.
 
Other income (expense), net was $1.8 million of expense for the first quarter of 2022 compared to $0.6 million of expense during the same period in 2021. 
                                         
Provision for income taxes was $6.3 million (26% of income before income tax) in the first quarter of 2022 compared to $5.0 million (22% of income before income tax) during the same period in 2021. The higher tax rate incurred in the first quarter of 2022 as compared to 2021, represents the annual rate the Company expects to incur.
    
The Company’s net income after tax was $18.5 million or $1.55 per share on a diluted basis for the first quarter of 2022 compared to $17.5 million or $1.47 per share on a diluted basis for the first quarter of 2021.  The increase of $1.0 million resulted from the factors described above.

Liquidity and Capital Resources
 
In addition to normal operating expenses, the Company has ongoing cash requirements which are necessary to operate the Company’s business, including inventory purchases and capital expenditures.  The Company’s accounts receivable, inventory and accounts payable levels, particularly in its Vegetation Management Division, build in the first quarter and early spring and, to a lesser extent, in the fourth quarter in anticipation of the spring and fall selling seasons. Accounts receivable historically build in the first and fourth quarters of each year as a result of pre-season sales and year-round sales programs. These sales, primarily in the Vegetation Management Division, help balance the Company’s production during the first and fourth quarters.
 
As of March 31, 2022, the Company had working capital of $550.7 million which represents an increase of $131.1 million from working capital of $419.6 million at December 31, 2021. The increase in working capital was primarily a result of volume-driven and inflation-driven increases in accounts receivable as well as an increase in inventory to support the Company's higher backlog levels.

Capital expenditures were $4.4 million for the first three months of 2022, compared to $3.5 million during the first three months of 2021. The Company expects to approve a normalized capital expenditure level for the full year of 2022. The Company will fund any future expenditures from operating cash flows or through our revolving credit facility, described below.
Net cash used for investing activities was $4.3 million during the first three months of 2022 compared to $2.8 million during the first three months of 2021.
Net cash provided by financing activities was $101.2 million and $67.4 million during the three month periods ended March 31, 2022 and March 31, 2021, respectively. Higher net cash provided by financing activities for the first three months of 2022 relates to increased borrowings on the Company's revolving credit facility used for increased working capital needs in support of elevated backlog levels.

The Company had $80.6 million in cash and cash equivalents held by its foreign subsidiaries as of March 31, 2022. The majority of these funds are at our European and Canadian facilities. The Company will continue to repatriate European and Canadian cash and cash equivalents in excess of amounts needed to fund operating and investing activities in these locations, and will monitor exchange rates to determine the appropriate timing of such repatriation given the current relative value of the U.S. dollar. Repatriated funds will initially be used to reduce funded debt levels under the Company's current credit facility and subsequently used to fund working capital, capital investments and acquisitions company-wide.

On October 24, 2019, the Company, as Borrower, and each of its domestic subsidiaries as guarantors, entered into a Second Amended and Restated Credit Agreement (the Credit Agreement) with Bank of America, N.A., as Administrative Agent. The Credit Agreement provides the Company with the ability to request loans and other financial obligations in an aggregate amount of up to $650.0 million and, subject to certain conditions, the Company has the option to request an increase in aggregate commitments of up to an additional $200.0 million. Pursuant to the Credit Agreement, the Company borrowed $300.0 million pursuant to a Term Facility repayable at a percentage of the initial principal amount of the Term Facility equal to 5.0% per year along with interest payable quarterly. The
17


remaining principal amount is due in 2024. Up to $350.0 million is available under the Credit Agreement pursuant to a Revolver Facility. The Agreement requires the Company to maintain two financial covenants, a maximum consolidated leverage ratio and a minimum consolidated fixed charge coverage ratio. The Agreement also contains various covenants relating to limitations on indebtedness, limitations on investments and acquisitions, limitations on sale of properties and limitations on liens and capital expenditures. The Agreement also contains other customary covenants, representations and events of defaults. The expiration date of the Term Facility and the Revolver Facility is October 24, 2024. As of March 31, 2022, $373.5 million was outstanding under the Credit Agreement, $262.5 million on the Term Facility and $111.0 million on the Revolver Facility. On March 31, 2022, $2.4 million of the revolver capacity was committed to irrevocable standby letters of credit issued in the ordinary course of business as required by vendors' contracts resulting in $160.9 million in available borrowings. The Company is in compliance with the covenants under the Agreement as of March 31, 2022.

Management believes the Agreement and the Company’s ability to internally generate funds from operations should be sufficient to meet the Company’s cash requirements for the foreseeable future. However, future challenges affecting the banking industry and credit markets in general could potentially cause changes to credit availability, which creates a level of uncertainty.

Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations are based upon our Consolidated Financial Statements, which have been prepared in accordance with GAAP.  The preparation of these financial statements requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenue and expenses, and related disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities.  Management bases its estimates on historical experience and on various other assumptions that are believed to be reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities that are not readily apparent from other sources.  Actual results may differ from these estimates under different assumptions or conditions, particularly given the uncertainty created by the COVID-19 pandemic.
 
Critical Accounting Policies

An accounting policy is deemed to be critical if it requires an accounting estimate to be made based on assumptions about matters that are highly uncertain at the time the estimate is made, and if different estimates that reasonably could have been used, or changes in the accounting estimates that are reasonably likely to occur periodically, could materially impact the financial statements.  Management believes that of the Company's significant accounting policies, which are set forth in Note 1 of the Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements in the 2021 Form 10-K, the policies relating to the business combinations involve a higher degree of judgment and complexity. There have been no material changes to the nature of estimates, assumptions and levels of subjectivity and judgment related to critical accounting estimates disclosed in Item 7 "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations" of the 2021 Form 10-K.

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

There are no off-balance sheet arrangements that have or are likely to have a current or future material effect on our financial condition.

Forward-Looking Information

Part I of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q and the “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” included in Item 2 of this Quarterly Report contain forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.  In addition, forward-looking statements may be made orally or in press releases, conferences, reports or otherwise, in the future by or on behalf of the Company.

Statements that are not historical are forward-looking.  When used by or on behalf of the Company, the words “estimate,” "anticipate," "expect," “believe,” “intend”, "will", "would", "should", "could" and similar expressions generally identify forward-looking statements made by or on behalf of the Company.

Forward-looking statements involve risks and uncertainties.  These uncertainties include factors that affect all businesses operating in a global market, as well as matters specific to the Company and the markets it serves.  Particular risks and uncertainties facing the Company include changes in market conditions; the ongoing direct and indirect impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic; changes in tariff regulations and the imposition of new tariffs; a strong U.S. dollar; increased competition; negative economic impacts resulting from geopolitical events such as the war in Ukraine or trade wars; decreases in the prices of agricultural commodities, which could affect our customers' income levels; increase in input costs; our inability to increase profit margins through continuing production efficiencies and cost reductions; repercussions from the exit by the U.K. from the European Union (EU); acquisition integration issues; budget constraints or income shortfalls which could affect the purchases of our type of equipment by governmental customers; credit availability for both the Company and its customers, adverse weather conditions such as droughts, floods, snowstorms, etc. which can affect buying patterns of the Company’s customers and related contractors; the price and availability of raw materials and product components; energy cost; increased cost of governmental regulations which effect corporations including related fines and penalties (such as the European General Data Protection Regulation and the California Consumer Privacy Act); the potential effects on the buying habits of our customers due to animal disease outbreaks and other epidemics; the Company’s ability to develop and manufacture new and existing products profitably; market acceptance of new and existing products; the Company’s ability to maintain good relations with its employees; the Company's ability to successfully complete acquisitions and operate acquired businesses or assets; the ability to hire and retain quality skilled employees; cyber security risks affecting information technology or data security breaches; and the possible effects of events beyond our control, such as political unrest, acts of terror, natural disasters and pandemics, on the Company or its customers, suppliers and the economy in general. The Company continues to experience the impacts of COVID-19 on its markets and operations including, most notably, supply chain disruptions, input cost inflation and skilled labor shortages. The full extent to which COVID-19 will continue to adversely impact the Company’s business depends on future developments, which are highly uncertain and unpredictable.

In addition, the Company is subject to risks and uncertainties facing the industry in general, including changes in business and political conditions and the economy in general in both domestic and international markets; weather conditions affecting demand; slower growth in the Company’s markets; financial market changes including increases in interest rates and fluctuations in foreign exchange rates; actions of competitors; the inability of the Company’s suppliers, customers, creditors, public utility providers and financial service organizations to deliver or provide their products or services to the Company; seasonal factors in the Company’s industry; litigation; government actions including budget levels, regulations and legislation, primarily relating to the environment, commerce, infrastructure spending, health and safety; and availability of materials.

The Company wishes to caution readers not to place undue reliance on any forward-looking statements and to recognize that the statements are not predictions of actual future results.  Actual results could differ materially from those anticipated in the forward-looking statements and from historical results, due to the risks and uncertainties described above, as well as others not now anticipated.  The foregoing statements are not exclusive and further information concerning the Company and its businesses, including factors that could potentially materially affect the Company’s financial results, may emerge from time to time.  It is not possible for management to predict all risk factors or to assess the impact of such risk factors on the Company’s businesses.
 
Item 3.  Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risks

The Company is exposed to various market risks.  Market risks are the potential losses arising from adverse changes in market prices and rates.  The Company does not enter into derivative or other financial instruments for trading or speculative purposes.

Foreign Currency Risk        

International Sales

A portion of the Company’s operations consists of manufacturing and sales activities in international jurisdictions. The Company primarily manufactures its products in the U.S., U.K., France, Canada, Brazil, Australia and the Netherlands.  The Company sells its products primarily in the functional currency within the markets where the products are produced, but certain sales from the Company's U.K. and Canadian operations are denominated in other foreign currencies.  As a result, the Company’s financials, specifically the value of its foreign assets, could be affected by factors such as changes in foreign currency exchange rates or weak economic conditions in the other markets in which the subsidiaries of the Company distribute their products. Foreign exchange rates and economic conditions in these foreign markets may be further impacted by the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Exposure to Exchange Rates

The Company translates the assets and liabilities of foreign-owned subsidiaries at rates in effect at the balance sheet date. Revenues and expenses are translated at average rates in effect during the reporting period. Translation adjustments are included in accumulated other comprehensive income within the statement of stockholders’ equity. The total foreign currency translation adjustment for the current quarter increased stockholders’ equity by $1.7 million.

The Company’s earnings are affected by fluctuations in the value of the U.S. dollar as compared to foreign currencies, predominately in Europe and Canada, as a result of the sales of its products in international markets.  Forward currency contracts are used to hedge against the earnings effects of such fluctuations.  The result of a uniform 10% strengthening or 10% decrease in the value of the dollar relative to the currencies in which the Company’s sales are denominated would result in a change in gross profit of $2.6 million for the three month period ended March 31, 2022.  This calculation assumes that each exchange rate would change in the same direction relative to the U.S. dollar.  In addition to the direct effects of changes in exchange rates, which include a changed dollar value of the resulting sales, changes in exchange rates may also affect the volume of sales or the foreign currency sales price as competitors’ products become more or less attractive.  The Company’s sensitivity analysis of the effects of changes in foreign currency exchange rates does not factor in a potential change in sales levels or local currency prices. 

In March 2019, the Company entered into fixed-to-fixed cross-currency swaps and designated these swaps to hedge a portion of its net investment in a euro functional currency denominated subsidiary against foreign currency fluctuations. These contracts involve the exchange of fixed U.S. dollars with fixed euro interest payments periodically over the life of the contracts and an exchange of the notional amounts at maturity. The fixed-to-fixed cross-currency swaps include €40 million ($45 million) that matured in December 2021.

Interest Rate Risk

The Company’s long-term debt bears interest at variable rates.  Accordingly, the Company’s net income is affected by changes in interest rates.  Assuming the current level of borrowings at variable rates and a two percentage point change for the first quarter 2022 average interest rate under these borrowings, the Company’s interest expense would have changed by approximately $1.9 million.  In the event of an adverse change in interest rates, management could take actions to mitigate its exposure.  However, due to the uncertainty of the actions that would be taken and their possible effects this analysis assumes no such actions.  Further this analysis does not consider the effects of the change in the level of overall economic activity that could exist in such an environment.

In January 2020, the Company entered into an interest rate swap agreement with three of its total lenders that hedge future cash flows related to its outstanding debt obligations. As of March 31, 2022, the Company had $373.5 million outstanding under the Credit Agreement of which $200.0 million was hedged in a three year interest rate swap contract with a fixed LIBOR base rate of 1.43%.
