CAUTIONARY NOTE REGARDING FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS
This Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q (this “Report”) contains forward‑looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”). You can generally identify forward‑looking statements by our use of forward‑looking terminology such as “aim,” “anticipate,” “assume,” “believe,” “continue,” “could,” “estimate,” “expect,” “goal,” “intend,” “may,” “might,” “plan,” “progress,” “potential,” “predict,” “projection,” “seek,” “should,” “will,” or “would,” or the negative thereof, or other variations thereon or comparable terminology.
All of these forward‑looking statements are based on our current expectations, assumptions, estimates, and projections. While we believe these expectations, assumptions, estimates and projections are reasonable, such forward‑looking statements are only predictions and involve known and unknown risks and uncertainties, many of which are beyond our control. These and other important factors may cause our actual results, performance, or achievements to differ materially from any future results, performance, or achievements expressed or implied by these forward‑looking statements or could affect our share price. Some of the factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed or implied by the forward‑looking statements include, among other things:
the failure to complete the proposed transaction with Xylem Inc. (“Xylem”) (the “Merger”) on the anticipated terms and timing, or at all;
the failure to obtain stockholder approvals or to satisfy any of the other conditions to the Merger on a timely basis or at all, or other delays in completing the Merger;
the failure to obtain necessary regulatory approvals (and the risk that such approvals may result in the imposition of conditions that could adversely affect the combined company or the expected benefits of the Merger);
the occurrence of any event, change or other circumstances that could give rise to the right of one or both of the parties to terminate the Company’s merger agreement with Xylem;
the possibility that the Merger may be less accretive than expected, or may be dilutive;
the possibility that the anticipated benefits of the Merger will not be realized when expected or at all, including as a result of the impact of, or problems arising from, the integration of the two companies or as a result of the strength of the economy and competitive factors in the areas where the Company and Xylem do business;
the possibility that the Merger may be more expensive to complete than anticipated, including as a result of unexpected factors or events;

(In thousands, except per share data)
1. Description of the Company and Basis of Presentation
Background
Evoqua Water Technologies Corp. (referred to herein as the “Company” or “EWT”) is a holding company and does not conduct any business operations of its own. The Company was incorporated on October 7, 2013. On November 6, 2017, the Company completed its initial public offering (“IPO”).
The Business
EWT provides a wide range of product brands and advanced water and wastewater treatment systems and technologies, as well as mobile and emergency water supply solutions and service contract options through its branch network. Headquartered in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, EWT is a multinational corporation with operations in the United States (“U.S.”), Canada, the United Kingdom (“UK”), the Netherlands, Germany, Australia, the People’s Republic of China, Singapore and India.
The Company is organizationally structured into two reportable operating segments for the purpose of making operational decisions and assessing financial performance: (i) Integrated Solutions and Services and (ii) Applied Product Technologies.
Basis of Presentation
The accompanying Unaudited Consolidated Financial Statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the U.S. (“GAAP”). All intercompany transactions have been eliminated. Unless otherwise specified, all dollar and share amounts in these notes are referred to in thousands.
The interim Unaudited Consolidated Financial Statements have been prepared pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). Certain information and note disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP have been condensed or omitted pursuant to such SEC rules. We believe that the disclosures made are adequate to make the information presented not misleading. In our opinion, all adjustments considered necessary for a fair presentation of the financial statements have been included, and all adjustments are of a normal and recurring nature. We consistently applied the accounting policies described in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2022, as filed with the SEC on November 16, 2022 (“2022 Annual Report”), in preparing these Unaudited Consolidated Financial Statements, with the exception of accounting standard updates described in Note 2, “Recent Accounting Pronouncements.” These Unaudited Consolidated Financial Statements should be read in conjunction with the audited financial statements and the notes included in our 2022 Annual Report. Certain prior period amounts have been reclassified to conform to the current period presentation.
Proposed Merger with Xylem Inc.
On January 22, 2023, the Company entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Merger Agreement”) with Xylem Inc., an Indiana corporation (“Xylem”), and Fore Merger Sub, Inc., a Delaware corporation and a direct, wholly owned subsidiary of Xylem (“Merger Sub”), pursuant to which Merger Sub will merge with and into the Company, with the Company continuing as the surviving corporation and as a direct, wholly owned subsidiary of Xylem (the “Merger”).
At the effective time of the Merger (the “Effective Time”) and upon consummation of the Merger, subject to the terms and conditions set forth in the Merger Agreement, each share of the common stock, par value $0.01 per share, of the Company issued and outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time (other than treasury shares held by the Company and shares of the Company’s common stock owned, directly or indirectly, by Xylem or Merger Sub) will be converted into and become exchangeable for 0.48 shares of common stock, par value $0.01 per share, of Xylem (the “Xylem Shares”) to be issued by Xylem as consideration for the Merger. Cash will be issued in lieu of fractional shares.
10


Upon the closing of the Merger, legacy Company stockholders will own approximately 25% and legacy Xylem shareholders will own approximately 75% of the combined company.
The consummation of the Merger is subject to the satisfaction or waiver of certain customary mutual conditions, including (a) the receipt of the required approvals from the Company’s stockholders and Xylem’s shareholders, (b) receipt of required regulatory approvals under antitrust and foreign investment laws in applicable jurisdictions, including the expiration or termination of the waiting period under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Act (collectively, “Regulatory Clearances”), (c) the absence of any temporary or permanent order, injunction, law or other legal restraint prohibiting or making illegal the consummation of the Merger, (d) the Xylem Shares issuable to the stockholders of the Company in connection with the Merger having been approved for listing on the New York Stock Exchange, subject to official notice of issuance, and (e) Xylem’s registration statement on Form S-4 having been declared effective under the Securities Act of 1933. The obligation of each party to consummate the Merger is also conditioned upon (a) the accuracy of the representations and warranties of the other party as of the date of the Merger Agreement and as of the closing (subject to customary materiality qualifiers) and (b) compliance by the other party in all material respects with its respective pre-closing obligations under the Merger Agreement.
The Merger Agreement contains certain termination rights that may be exercised by either the Company or Xylem. In certain of those cases, we may be required to pay Xylem a termination fee of $225,000.
In connection with the Merger, we recognized costs of $200 for the three months ended December 31, 2022, in General and administrative expenses in the Unaudited Consolidated Statements of Operations.
For further information on the Merger Agreement, refer to the Merger Agreement, a copy of which was filed as Exhibit 2.1 to our Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the SEC on January 23, 2023.

2. Recent Accounting Pronouncements
Accounting Pronouncements Not Yet Adopted
In September 2022, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (the “FASB”) issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) 2022-04, Liabilities—Supplier Finance Programs (Subtopic 405-50): Disclosure of Supplier Finance Program Obligations, which enhances transparency about an entity’s use of supplier finance programs by requiring quarterly and annual disclosures about the key terms of the program, outstanding confirmed amounts as of the end of the period, a rollforward of such amounts annually, and a description of where in the financial statements outstanding amounts are presented. The guidance is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2022. The Company is currently assessing the impact of adoption on the Company’s Unaudited Consolidated Financial Statements and related disclosures.
In October 2021, the FASB issued ASU 2021-08, Business Combinations (Topic 805): Accounting for Contract Assets and Contract Liabilities from Contracts with Customers, which amends Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 805 to require an acquirer to, at the date of acquisition, recognize and measure contract assets and contract liabilities acquired in accordance with ASU 2014-9, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606) (“Topic 606”), as if the entity had originated the contracts, rather than adjust them to fair value at the acquisition date. The guidance is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2022 and is to be applied prospectively to business combinations occurring on or after the effective date of the amendments. The Company is currently assessing the impact of adoption on the Company’s Unaudited Consolidated Financial Statements and related disclosures.
Accounting Pronouncements Recently Adopted
In December 2022, the FASB issued ASU 2022-06, Reference Rate Reform (Topic 848): Deferral of the Sunset Date of Topic 848. This ASU is one of the subsequent amendments to ASU 2020-04, Reference Rate Reform (Topic 848): Facilitation of the Effects of Revenue Rate Reform on Financial Reporting, which provides optional guidance to ease the potential burden in accounting for (or recognizing the effects of) reference rate reform on financial reporting. The objective of the guidance in Topic 848 is to provide temporary relief during the transition period. Because the current relief in Topic 848 may not cover a period of time during which a significant number of modifications may take place, ASU 2022-06 was issued to defer the sunset date of Topic 848 from December 31, 2022, to December 31, 2024, after which entities will no longer be permitted to apply the relief in Topic 848. The Company adopted ASU 2022-06 during the three months ended December 31, 2022 and the adoption did not have a material impact on the Company’s Unaudited Consolidated Financial Statements and related disclosures.
3. Variable Interest Entities
Treated Water Outsourcing (“TWO”) was a joint venture between the Company and Nalco Water, an Ecolab company (“Nalco”), in which the Company held a 50% partnership interest. The Company acquired the remaining partnership interest in TWO from Nalco on April 1, 2022. Prior to acquisition, the Company was obligated to absorb all risk of loss up to 100% of the joint venture partner’s equity. As such, the Company fully consolidated TWO as a variable interest entity (“VIE”) under ASC Topic No. 810, Consolidation.
The following provides TWO’s summarized financial information for the three months ended December 31, 2021. As a result of the acquisition of the remaining partnership interest in TWO on April 1, 2022, there is no summarized financial information for the three months ended December 31, 2022.

Total revenue$845 
Total operating expenses(737)
Income from operations$108 
On October 1, 2019, the Company acquired a 60% investment position in San Diego-based Frontier Water Systems, LLC (“Frontier”). The Frontier acquisition was a VIE because it had insufficient equity to finance its activities due to key
12


assets being assigned to the Company upon acquisition.  The Company was the primary beneficiary of Frontier because the Company had the power to direct the activities that most significantly affect Frontier’s economic performance.
In addition, the Company entered into an agreement to purchase the remaining 40% interest in Frontier on or prior to March 30, 2024. This agreement (a) gave holders of the remaining 40% interest in Frontier (the “Minority Owners”) the right to sell to Evoqua up to approximately 10% of the outstanding equity in Frontier at a predetermined price, which right was exercisable by the Minority Owners between January 1, 2021 and February 28, 2021 (the “Option”), and (b) obligated the Company to purchase and the Minority Owners to sell all of the Minority Owners’ remaining interest in Frontier at the fair market value at the time of sale on or prior to March 30, 2024 (the “Purchase Right”). The Company acquired an additional 8% equity interest in Frontier in April 2021. On April 1, 2022, the Company purchased the remaining 32% outstanding equity in Frontier.
The following provides Frontier’s summarized financial information for the three months ended December 31, 2021. As a result of the acquisition of the remaining equity interest in Frontier on April 1, 2022, there is no summarized financial information for the three months ended December 31, 2022.

4. Acquisitions and Divestitures
Acquisitions support the Company’s strategy of delivering a broad solutions portfolio with robust technology across multiple geographies and end markets. The Company continues to evaluate potential strategic acquisitions of businesses, assets and product lines and believes that capex-like, tuck-in acquisitions present a key opportunity within its overall growth strategy.
On July 15, 2022, the Company completed the acquisition of Epicor, Inc. (“Epicor”) for $4,339 cash paid at closing. During the three months ended December 31, 2022, the Company paid cash of $38 to the seller as a result of net working capital adjustments. Epicor has supplied specialty resins for power steam system treatment for fifty years. The resins provide a cost-effective and efficient method for creating and maintaining a continual supply of ultra-pure water for power plants. Epicor is included within the Integrated Solutions and Services segment.

On July 1, 2022, the Company completed the acquisition of Smith Engineering, Inc. (“Smith Engineering”) for $18,878 cash paid at closing, of which $2,895 was paid into an escrow account. Smith Engineering is a leader in the design, manufacturing, and service of custom high purity water treatment equipment serving the biotech/pharmaceutical, data center, food and beverage, healthcare, medical device, and microelectronics markets. With over 1,200 customers in North America, Smith Engineering offers a variety of water treatment products and services, including filtration, UV, reverse osmosis, and deionization. Smith Engineering is included within the Integrated Solutions and Services segment.

The acquisition of Smith Engineering has been accounted for using the acquisition method of accounting which requires the assets acquired and liabilities assumed be recognized at their respective fair values as of the acquisition date. Due to the nature of the net assets acquired, at December 31, 2022, the valuation process to determine fair values is not complete and further adjustments are expected in the remainder of fiscal year 2023. As the Company finalizes the fair value of assets acquired and liabilities assumed, additional purchase price allocation adjustments will be recorded during the measurement period, but no later than one year from the date of the acquisition.

On December 20, 2021, the Company and its indirect wholly-owned subsidiaries Evoqua Water Technologies LLC (“EWT LLC”) and Evoqua Water Technologies Ltd. (together with EWT LLC, the “Buyer”) entered into an Asset Purchase Agreement (the “Agreement”) with Cantel Medical LLC, Mar Cor Purification, Inc., and certain of their affiliates (collectively, the “Sellers”), each wholly-owned subsidiaries of Steris plc, pursuant to which the Buyer agreed to acquire certain assets of the Sellers and assume certain liabilities of the Sellers that are owned or used or arise in connection with the global operation of the Sellers’ renal business (the “Mar Cor Business”) for an aggregate purchase price of $196,300 in cash at closing (the “Purchase Price”), subject to customary adjustments, including for working capital (the “Transaction”). On January 3, 2022, the Company completed the Transaction to acquire the Mar Cor Business for $194,976 paid in cash at closing, following adjustments. During the three months ended December 31, 2022, the Company received cash of $1,754 from the Sellers as a result of net working capital adjustments, thus resulting in a final purchase price of $193,222. The Company utilized cash on hand and borrowed an additional $160,000 under the 2021 Revolving Credit Facility (as defined below) to fund the Transaction. The Mar Cor Business is included within the Integrated Solutions and Services segment.

The Purchase Price includes a $12,300 earn out, which is being held in escrow and will be paid, pro rata, to the Sellers if the Mar Cor Business meets certain sales performance goals through December 31, 2022 (the “Earn Out”). Determination of the level of achievement of the performance goals is subject to certification by the Sellers. Any portion of the Earn Out not paid to the Sellers during the first year following closing of the Transaction will be returned to the Buyer. A Monte Carlo simulation was performed to determine the fair value of an Earn Out asset for the amount expected to be received back from escrow based on the forecasted achievement of the sales performance goals associated with the Earn Out as of the acquisition date. See Note 6, Fair Value Measurements, for further discussion. In addition to the amount held in escrow for the earn out, approximately $12,965 of the Purchase Price was placed into an escrow account, of which $9,815 is to secure general indemnification claims against the Sellers and $3,150 is for net working capital adjustments.

The acquisition of the Mar Cor Business has been accounted for using the acquisition method of accounting which requires the assets acquired and liabilities assumed be recognized at their respective fair values as of the acquisition date.

5. Revenue
Performance Obligations
The Company elects to apply the practical expedient to exclude from this disclosure revenue related to performance obligations if the product has an alternative use and the Company does not have an enforceable right to payment for the performance completed to date, including a normal profit margin, in the event of termination for convenience. The Company maintains a backlog of confirmed orders, which totaled approximately $398,960 at December 31, 2022. This backlog represents the aggregate amount of the transaction price allocated to performance obligations that were unsatisfied or partially unsatisfied as of the end of the reporting period. The Company estimates that the majority of these performance obligations will be satisfied within the next twelve to twenty-four months.
Disaggregation of Revenue
In accordance with Topic 606, the Company disaggregates revenue from contracts with customers into source of revenue, reportable operating segment, and geographical regions. The Company determined that disaggregating revenue into these categories meets the disclosure objective in Topic 606, which is to depict how the nature, amount, timing, and uncertainty of revenue and cash flows are affected by economic factors.

6. Fair Value Measurements
As of December 31, 2022 and September 30, 2022, the fair values of cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable, and accounts payable approximated carrying values due to the short maturity of these items.
The Company measures the fair value of pension plan assets and liabilities, deferred compensation plan assets and liabilities on a recurring basis pursuant to ASC Topic No. 820, Fair Value Measurement. ASC Topic No. 820 establishes a three‑tier fair value hierarchy, which prioritizes the inputs used in measuring fair value. These tiers include:
Level 1: Quoted prices for identical instruments in active markets.
Level 2: Quoted prices for similar instruments in active markets; quoted prices for identical or similar instruments in markets that are not active; and model‑derived valuations whose inputs are observable or whose significant value driver is observable.
Level 3: Unobservable inputs in which little or no market data is available, therefore requiring an entity to develop its own assumptions.
The following table presents the Company’s financial assets and liabilities at fair value. The fair values related to the pension plan assets are determined using net asset value (“NAV”) as a practical expedient, or by information categorized in the fair value hierarchy level based on the inputs used to determine fair value. The reported carrying amounts of deferred compensation plan assets and liabilities and debt approximate their fair values. The Company uses interest rates and other relevant information generated by market transactions involving similar instruments to measure the fair value of these assets and liabilities, therefore all are classified as Level 2 within the valuation hierarchy.

The pension plan assets and liabilities and deferred compensation plan assets and liabilities are included in Other non‑current assets and Other non‑current liabilities at December 31, 2022 and September 30, 2022. The unrealized loss on mutual funds was $2,226 at December 31, 2022.
The Company records contingent consideration arrangements at fair value on a recurring basis, and the associated balances presented as of December 31, 2022 and September 30, 2022 are earn-outs related to acquisitions. The fair value of earn-outs related to acquisitions is based on significant unobservable inputs including the achievement of certain performance metrics. Significant changes in these inputs would result in corresponding increases or decreases in the fair value of the earn-out each period until the related contingency has been resolved. Changes in the fair value of the contingent consideration obligations and assets can result from adjustments in the probability of achieving future development steps, sales targets and profitability and are recorded in General and administrative expenses in the Unaudited Consolidated Statements of Operations. As a result of the Mar Cor Business acquisition on January 3, 2022, the Company recorded an Earn Out asset for $7,824 which represented the fair value of amounts expected to be received back from escrow based on the forecasted achievement of certain sales performance goals at the acquisition date. During the year ended September 30, 2022, the Company recorded an increase in the fair value of the Earn Out asset of $3,773 based on updated forecast information. During the three months ended December 31, 2022, the Company recorded an increase in the fair value of the Earn Out asset of $703 based on results of sales performance goals. As of December 31, 2022 and September 30, 2022, the Earn Out asset related to the Mar Cor Business acquisition totaled $12,300 and $11,597, respectively, and is included in Prepaid and other current assets on the Consolidated Balance Sheets.
