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, 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 “anticipate,” “believe,” “continue,” “could,” “estimate,” “expect,” “intend,” “may,” “might,” “plan,” “potential,” “predict,” “projection,” “seek,” “should,” “will” or “would,” or the negative thereof, or other variations thereon or comparable terminology. In particular, statements about the markets in which we operate, including growth of our various markets, our expectations, beliefs, plans, strategies, objectives, prospects, assumptions, or future events or performance, statements regarding our restructuring actions and expected restructuring charges and cost savings for fiscal 2021 and beyond, and statements related to the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on our business contained in this Report are forward‑looking statements.
We have based these forward‑looking statements 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, including those discussed in Part I, Item 1A. “Risk Factors” of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2020, as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) on November 20, 2020, and Part I, Item 2. “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operation” of this Report 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:
general global economic and business conditions, including the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic and disruptions in global oil markets;
our ability to compete successfully in our markets;
our ability to execute projects on budget and on schedule;
the potential for us to incur liabilities to customers as a result of warranty claims or failure to meet performance guarantees;
our ability to meet our customers’ safety standards or the potential for adverse publicity affecting our reputation as a result of incidents such as workplace accidents, mechanical failures, spills, uncontrolled discharges, damage to customer or third‑party property or the transmission of contaminants or diseases;
our ability to continue to develop or acquire new products, services and solutions and adapt our business to meet the demands of our customers, comply with changes to government regulations and achieve market acceptance with acceptable margins;
our ability to implement our growth strategy, including acquisitions, and our ability to identify suitable acquisition targets;
our ability to operate or integrate any acquired businesses, assets or product lines profitably or otherwise successfully implement our growth strategy;
our ability to achieve the expected benefits of our restructuring actions, including restructuring our business into two segments;
material and other cost inflation and our ability to mitigate the impact of inflation by increasing selling prices and improving our productivity efficiencies;
our ability to accurately predict the timing of contract awards;
delays in enactment or repeals of environmental laws and regulations;

the potential for us to become subject to claims relating to handling, storage, release or disposal of hazardous materials;
our ability to retain our senior management and other key personnel;
our increasing dependence on the continuous and reliable operation of our information technology systems;
risks associated with product defects and unanticipated or improper use of our products;
litigation, regulatory or enforcement actions and reputational risk as a result of the nature of our business or our participation in large‑scale projects;
seasonality of sales and weather conditions;
risks related to government customers, including potential challenges to our government contracts or our eligibility to serve government customers;
the potential for our contracts with federal, state and local governments to be terminated or adversely modified prior to completion;
risks related to foreign, federal, state and local environmental, health and safety laws and regulations and the costs associated therewith;
risks associated with international sales and operations, including our operations in China;
our ability to adequately protect our intellectual property from third‑party infringement;
risks related to our substantial indebtedness;
our need for a significant amount of cash, which depends on many factors beyond our control;
risks related to AEA Investors LP’s (together with certain of its affiliates, collectively, “AEA”) ownership interest in us; and
other risks and uncertainties, including those listed under Part I, Item 1A. “Risk Factors” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2020, as filed with the SEC on November 20, 2020, and in other filings we may make from time to time with the SEC.
Given these risks and uncertainties, you are cautioned not to place undue reliance on such forward‑looking statements. The forward‑looking statements contained in this Report are not guarantees of future performance and our actual results of operations, financial condition and liquidity, and the development of the industry in which we operate, may differ materially from the forward‑looking statements contained in this Report. In addition, even if our results of operations, financial condition and liquidity, and events in the industry in which we operate, are consistent with the forward‑looking statements contained in this Report, they may not be predictive of results or developments in future periods.
Any forward‑looking statement that we make in this Report speaks only as of the date of such statement. Except as required by law, we do not undertake any obligation to update or revise, or to publicly announce any update or revision to, any of the forward‑looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, after the date of this Report.

1. Description of the Company and Basis of Presentation
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 January 15, 2014, the Company acquired through its wholly owned entities, EWT Holdings II Corp. and EWT Holdings III Corp. (“EWT III”), all of the outstanding shares of Siemens Water Technologies, a group of legal entity businesses formerly owned by Siemens AG (“Siemens”). The stock purchase closed on January 15, 2014 and was effective January 16, 2014 (the “Acquisition”). On November 6, 2017, the Company completed its initial public offering (“IPO”).
On December 4, 2020, the Company completed a secondary public offering, pursuant to which 12,000 shares of common stock were sold by certain selling shareholders. The Company did not receive any proceeds from the sale of shares by the selling shareholders in this secondary public offering.
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, the Republic of Korea 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, 2020, as filed with the SEC on November 20, 2020 (“2020 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 2020 Annual Report. Certain prior period amounts have been reclassified to conform to the current period presentation.

Reporting, as amended in January 2021 (“ASU 2021-01”), which provides optional expedients and exceptions for contracts, hedging relationships and other transactions that reference the London Inter-Bank Offered Rate (“LIBOR”) or another reference rate expected to be discontinued because of reference rate reform, if certain criteria are met. ASU 2020-04 became effective immediately and expires on December 21, 2022. ASU 2020-04 allows eligible contracts that are modified to be accounted for as a continuation of those contracts, permits companies to preserve their hedging accounting during the transition period and enables companies to make a one-time election to transfer or sell held-to-maturity debt securities that are affected by rate reform. The Company is currently assessing the impact of the adoption of ASU 2020-04 on the Company’s Unaudited Consolidated Financial Statements and related disclosures.
Accounting Pronouncements Recently Adopted
The Company adopted ASU 2016-13, Financial Instruments—Credit Losses (Topic 326): Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments on October 1, 2020 (“ASU 2016-13”). ASU 2016-13 requires entities to use a new forward-looking “expected loss” model that reflects expected credit losses, including credit losses related to trade receivables, and requires consideration of a broader range of reasonable and supportable information to inform credit loss estimates which generally will result in the earlier recognition of allowances for losses. The Company adopted ASU 2016-13 using a modified retrospective approach and determined that there was no cumulative-effect adjustment to its beginning Retained deficit on the Consolidated Balance Sheets. The adoption of this standard did not have a material impact on the Company’s Unaudited Consolidated Financial Statements. See Note 7, “Accounts Receivable” for further details and related disclosures.
The following accounting pronouncements were adopted by the Company during the three months ended December 31, 2020 and the adoptions did not have a material impact on the Company’s Unaudited Consolidated Financial Statements or disclosures:

3. Variable Interest Entities
Treated Water Outsourcing (“TWO”) is a joint venture between the Company and Nalco Water, an Ecolab company, in which the Company holds a 50% partnership interest. The Company is obligated to absorb all risk of loss up to 100% of the joint venture partner’s equity. As such, the Company fully consolidates TWO as a variable interest entity (“VIE”) under Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) Topic No. 810, Consolidation. The Company has not provided, and is not contractually required to provide, additional financial support to this entity, and the Company does not have the ability to use the assets of TWO to settle obligations of the Company’s other subsidiaries.
The following provides a summary of TWO’s balance sheet as of December 31, 2020 and September 30, 2020, and summarized financial information for the three months ended December 31, 2020 and 2019.

On October 1, 2019, the Company acquired a 60% investment position in San Diego-based Frontier Water Systems, LLC (“Frontier”). The Frontier acquisition is a VIE because it has insufficient equity to finance its activities due to key assets being assigned to the Company upon acquisition.  The Company is the primary beneficiary of Frontier because the Company has the power to direct the activities that most significantly affect Frontier’s economic performance. As the agreement to purchase the remaining interest was determined to be financing due to the mandatory Purchase Right, as per ASC Topic 480, Distinguishing Liabilities From Equity, the Company recognized a liability for the remaining 40% interest. Additionally, the Company fully consolidates Frontier as a VIE under ASC Topic No. 810, Consolidation.
The following provides a summary of Frontier’s balance sheet as of December 31, 2020 and September 30, 2020, and summarized financial information for the three months ended December 31, 2020 and 2019.

4. Acquisitions
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 December 17, 2020, the Company acquired the industrial water business of Ultrapure & Industrial Services, LLC (“Ultrapure”) for $8,743 cash paid at closing. Ultrapure, based out of Texas, provides customers across multiple end markets with a variety of water treatment products and services, including service deionization, reverse osmosis, UV and ozonation. Ultrapure will strengthen the Company’s service capabilities in the Houston and Dallas markets and is a part of the Integrated Solutions and Services segment. During the three months ended December 31, 2020, the Company incurred approximately $216 in acquisition costs, which are included in General and administrative expenses.

The accounting for the acquisition has not yet been completed because the Company has not finalized the valuations of the acquired assets, assumed liabilities and identifiable intangible assets, including goodwill. The preliminary opening balance sheet for Ultrapure is summarized as follows:
Current assets$2,039 
Property, plant and equipment900 
Other non-current assets22 
Total assets acquired9,049 
Liabilities assumed(306)
Net assets acquired$8,743 
5. Revenue
Revenue Recognition
The Company recognizes sales of products and services based on the five-step analysis of transactions as provided in ASU 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606) (“Topic 606”). For all contracts with customers, the Company first identifies the contract which usually is established when the customer’s purchase order is accepted or acknowledged. Next the Company identifies the performance obligations in the contract. A performance obligation is a promise in a contract to transfer a distinct good or service to the customer. The Company then determines the transaction price in the arrangement and allocates the transaction price to each performance obligation identified in the contract. The Company’s allocation of the transaction price to the performance obligations are based on the relative standalone selling prices for the goods and services contained in a particular performance obligation. The transaction price is adjusted for the Company’s estimate of variable consideration which may include discounts if the Company would fail to meet certain performance requirements, volume discounts or early payment discounts. To estimate variable consideration, the Company utilizes historical experience and known terms. Variable consideration in contracts for the three months ended December 31, 2020 was insignificant.
For sales of aftermarket parts or products with a low level of customization and engineering time, the Company recognizes revenues at the time risks and rewards of ownership pass, which is generally when products are shipped or delivered to the customer as the Company has no obligation for installation. The Company considers shipping and handling services to be fulfillment activities and as such they do not represent separate performance obligations for revenue recognition. Sales of service arrangements are recognized as the services are performed.
For certain arrangements where there is significant customization to the product and for long-term construction-type sales contracts, revenue may be recognized over time. In these instances, revenue is recognized using a measure of progress that applies an input method based on costs incurred in relation to total estimated costs. These arrangements include large capital water treatment projects, systems and solutions for municipal and industrial applications. The nature of the contracts is generally fixed price with milestone billings. In order for revenue to be recognized over a period of time, the product must have no alternative use and the Company must have an enforceable right to payment for the performance completed to date, including a normal profit margin, in the event of termination for convenience. If these two criteria are not met, revenues from these contracts will not be recognized until construction is complete. Contract revenues and cost estimates are reviewed and revised quarterly at a minimum and the cumulative effect of such adjustments are recognized in current operations. The amount of such adjustments has not been material.
The Company has made accounting policy elections to exclude all taxes by governmental authorities from the measurement of the transaction price and that long-term construction-type sales contracts, or those contracts for products with significant customization that the total contract price is less than $100, will be recorded at the point in time when the construction is complete.

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 $154,029 at December 31, 2020. 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 months.
The recording of assets recognized from the costs to obtain and fulfill customer contracts primarily relate to the deferral of sales commissions. The Company’s costs incurred to obtain or fulfill a contract with a customer are classified as non-current assets and amortized to expense over the period of benefit of the related revenue. These costs are recorded within Cost of product sales and services. The amount of contract costs was insignificant at December 31, 2020.
The Company offers standard warranties that generally do not represent a separate performance obligation. In certain instances, a warranty is obtained separately from the original equipment sale or the warranty provides incremental services and as such is treated as a separate performance obligation.
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, 2020 and September 30, 2020, the fair values of cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable and accounts payable approximate 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 fair value these assets and liabilities, therefore all are classified as Level 2 within the valuation hierarchy.
