NOTES TO THE CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

Note 1 - Basis of Presentation
The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America for interim financial reporting and the instructions to Form 10-Q and, therefore, reflect all adjustments which are, in the opinion of management, necessary for a fair statement of the results for the interim periods presented. All such adjustments are of a normal recurring nature. These interim condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the Consolidated Financial Statements and Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2023.
Due to rounding, numbers presented throughout this report may not add up precisely to totals we provide, and percentages may not precisely reflect the absolute figures. Certain amounts in the prior periods’ condensed consolidated financial statements have been reclassified to conform to the current period presentation.
Separation
On April 3, 2023, Crane Holdings, Co. completed a separation into two independent, publicly-traded companies, Crane NXT, Co. and Crane Company (the “Separation”), through a pro-rata distribution (the "Distribution") of all of the outstanding common stock of Crane Company to the stockholders of Crane Holdings, Co., which on April 3, 2023 was renamed “Crane NXT, Co.” Therefore, following the Separation, the historical consolidated financial statements of Crane Company reflect the historical consolidated financial statements of Crane Holdings, Co. with the Payment & Merchandising Technologies segment and other distributed assets and liabilities classified as discontinued operations. See Note 3 for additional information.

In connection with the Separation Crane NXT, Co. and Crane Company entered into various agreements to effect the Separation and provide a framework for their relationship after the Separation, including a separation and distribution agreement, a transition services agreement, an employee matters agreement, a tax matters agreement and an intellectual property matters agreement. These agreements provide for the allocation between Crane NXT, Co. and Crane Company of assets, employees, liabilities and obligations (including property and employee benefits and tax-related assets and liabilities) attributable to periods prior to, at, and after the consummation of the Separation and govern certain relationships between Crane NXT, Co. and Crane Company after the Separation.

The Company had a receivable of $0.1 million and $2.2 million related to the transition services agreement and tax matters agreement as of March 31, 2024 and December 31, 2023 respectively. Additionally, as part of the Separation, to a limited extent, the Company has agreed to indemnify Crane NXT, Co. for uncertain tax benefits, which are attributable to the Company’s business. Such total liability amounts are included in other liabilities on our Consolidated Balance Sheets and were $7.0 million as of March 31, 2024 and December 31, 2023.

Liability Performance-Based Restricted Share Units
As a result of the Separation, certain executives hold performance-based restricted share units (“PRSUs”) that have undergone an equity-to-liability modification and are denominated in Crane NXT, Co. stock. As of March 31, 2024 and December 31, 2023, the liability balance was $5.1 million and $10.0 million, respectively.
Recent Accounting Pronouncements
In November 2023, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued Accounting Standard Updates (“ASU”) No. 2023-07, Segment Reporting (Topic 280): Improvements to Reportable Segment Disclosures. The amendments improve reportable segment disclosure requirements, primarily through enhanced disclosures about significant segment expenses. In addition, the amendments enhance interim disclosure requirements, clarify circumstances in which an entity can disclose multiple segment measures of profit or loss, provide new segment disclosure requirements for entities with a single reportable segment, and contain other disclosure requirements. The amendments in this ASU are effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2023, and interim periods within fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2024. Early adoption is permitted. The amended guidance is required to be applied on a retrospective basis to all periods presented. We are currently evaluating this guidance to determine the impact on our disclosures.
In December 2023, FASB issued ASU No. 2023-09, Income Taxes (Topic 740): Improvements to Income Tax Disclosures. The amendments in this ASU require that public business entities disclose specific categories in the rate reconciliation and provide additional information for reconciling items that meet a quantitative threshold (if the effect of those reconciling items is equal to or greater than 5 percent of the amount computed by multiplying pretax income by the applicable statutory income tax rate). The amendments in this ASU are effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2024. Early adoption is permitted. The amendments in this Update should be applied on a prospective basis. We are currently evaluating this guidance to determine the impact on our disclosures.
10

NOTES TO THE CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
The Company considered the applicability and impact of all ASUs issued by the FASB and determined them to be either not applicable or are not expected to have a material impact on the Company's Condensed Consolidated Statement of Operations, Balance Sheets and Cash Flows.
Note 2 - Acquisitions
Vian Acquisition
On January 2, 2024, the Company completed the acquisition of Vian Enterprises, Inc. (“Vian”) for $102.5 million on a cash-free and debt-free basis, subject to a net working capital adjustment and potential additional payments of up to $7.5 million depending on the resolution of outstanding contingencies.
Vian is a global designer and manufacturer of multi-stage lubrication pumps and lubrication system components technology for critical aerospace and defense applications with sole-sourced and proprietary content on the commercial and military aircraft platforms. Vian has been integrated into the Aerospace & Electronics segment.
Allocation of Consideration Transferred to Net Assets Acquired
The following amounts represent the preliminary determination of the fair value of identifiable assets acquired and liabilities assumed from our acquisition of Vian. The final determination of the fair value of certain assets and liabilities will be completed within the one-year measurement period as required by ASC 805. We have not yet completed our evaluation and determination of certain assets acquired and liabilities assumed. Any potential adjustments made could be material in relation to the preliminary values presented below:
Net assets acquired (in millions)
Total current assets$21.0 
Property, plant and equipment6.8 
Other assets7.4 
Intangible assets54.4 
Goodwill48.5 
Total assets acquired$138.1 
Total current liabilities$6.2 
Other liabilities29.4 
Total assumed liabilities$35.6 
Net assets acquired$102.5 
The amounts allocated to acquired intangible assets, and their associated weighted-average useful lives which were determined based on the period in which the assets are expected to contribute directly or indirectly to our future cash flows, consist of the following:
Intangible Assets (dollars in millions)
Intangible Fair ValueWeighted Average Life (in years)
Trademarks/trade names$2.0 17.0
Customer relationships44.0 29.0
Manufacturing know-how3.2 4.0
Backlog5.2 1.0
Total acquired intangible assets$54.4 
The fair values of the trade name and manufacturing know-how intangible assets were determined by using an income approach, specifically the relief-from-royalty approach, which is a commonly accepted valuation approach. This approach is based on the assumption that in lieu of ownership, a firm would be willing to pay a royalty in order to exploit the related benefits of this asset. Therefore, a portion of Vian’s earnings, equal to the after-tax royalty that would have been paid for the use of the asset, can be attributed to our ownership. The trade name and manufacturing know-how are being amortized on a straight-line basis (which approximates the economic pattern of benefits) over the estimated economic life of 17 years and 4 years, respectively.
The fair values of the customer relationships and backlog intangible assets were determined by using an income approach which is a commonly accepted valuation approach. Under this approach, the net earnings attributable to the asset or liability
11

NOTES TO THE CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
being measured are isolated using the discounted projected net cash flows. These projected cash flows are isolated from the projected cash flows of the combined asset group over the remaining economic life of the intangible asset or liability being measured. Both the amount and the duration of the cash flows are considered from a market participant perspective. Our estimates of market participant net cash flows considered historical and projected pricing, operational performance including market participant synergies, aftermarket retention, product life cycles, material and labor pricing, and other relevant customer, contractual and market factors. Where appropriate, the net cash flows were adjusted to reflect the potential attrition of existing customers in the future, as existing customers are expected to decline over time. The attrition-adjusted future cash flows are then discounted to present value using an appropriate discount rate. The customer relationship and backlog intangible assets are being amortized on a straight-line basis (which approximates the economic pattern of benefits) over the estimated economic life of 29 years and 1 year, respectively. The useful life of the customer relationship intangible asset of 29 years is primarily driven by large customer relationships tied to long-duration aircraft platforms.
Supplemental Pro Forma Data
Vian’s results of operations have been included in our financial statements for the period subsequent to the completion of the acquisition on January 2, 2024. Consolidated pro forma revenue and net income attributable to common shareholders have not been presented since the impact is not material to our financial results for the period.

BAUM Acquisition
On October 4, 2023, the Company completed the acquisition of Baum lined piping GmbH (“BAUM”) for $93.5 million on a cash-free and debt-free basis. During the first quarter of 2024, the Company paid $3.1 million to the seller related to a final working capital adjustment.

Note 3 - Discontinued Operations
As discussed in Note 1, Crane Company has reflected the historical consolidated financial statements of Crane Holdings, Co. with the Payment & Merchandising Technologies segment classified as discontinued operations.

Note 4 - Segment Results
Our segments are reported on the same basis used internally for evaluating performance and for allocating resources. As of March 31, 2024, we had three reportable segments: Aerospace & Electronics, Process Flow Technologies, and Engineered Materials. Assets of the reportable segments exclude general corporate assets, which principally consist of cash, deferred tax assets, certain property, plant and equipment, and certain other assets. Corporate consists of corporate office expenses including compensation and benefits for corporate employees, occupancy, depreciation, and other administrative costs.
A brief description of each of our segments are as follows:
Aerospace & Electronics
The Aerospace & Electronics segment supplies critical components and systems, including original equipment and aftermarket parts, primarily for the commercial aerospace, and the military aerospace, defense and space markets. Its brands have decades of proven experience, and in many cases invented the critical technologies in their respective markets. The business designs and delivers systems, reliable components, and flexible power solutions that excel in tough and mission-critical environments. Products and services are organized into integrated solutions: Sensing Components & Systems, Electrical Power Solutions, Fluid Management Solutions, Landing & Control Systems, and Microwave Solutions.

Remaining Performance Obligations
The transaction price allocated to remaining performance obligations represents the transaction price of firm orders which have not yet been fulfilled, which we also refer to as total backlog. As of March 31, 2024, total backlog was $1,197.9 million. We expect to recognize approximately 76% of our remaining performance obligations as revenue in 2024, an additional 20% in 2025 and the balance thereafter.
Contract Assets and Contract Liabilities
Contract assets represent unbilled amounts that typically arise from contracts for customized products or contracts for products sold directly to the U.S. government or indirectly to the U.S. government through subcontracts, where revenue recognized using the cost-to-cost method exceeds the amount billed to the customer. Contract assets are assessed for impairment and recorded at their net realizable value. Contract liabilities represent advance payments from customers. Revenue related to contract liabilities is recognized when control is transferred to the customer. We report contract assets, which are included within “Other current assets” in our Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets, and contract liabilities, which are included within “Accrued liabilities” on our Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets, on a contract-by-contract net basis at the end of each reporting period. Net contract assets and contract liabilities consisted of the following:
(in millions)March 31, 2024December 31, 2023
Contract assets$73.4 $63.5 
Contract liabilities$52.1 $56.2

Note 6 - Earnings Per Share
Our basic earnings per share calculations are based on the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period. Potentially dilutive securities include outstanding stock options, restricted share units, deferred stock units and performance-based restricted share units. The effect of potentially dilutive securities is reflected in diluted earnings per common share by application of the treasury method. Diluted earnings per share gives effect to all potentially dilutive common shares outstanding during the period.

20242023
Effective Tax Rate21.0%21.6%

Our effective tax rate for the three months ended March 31, 2024, is slightly lower than the prior year’s comparable period primarily due to lower non-U.S. taxes and lower statutorily non-deductible costs.

Our effective tax rate for the three months ended March 31, 2024, is equal to the statutory U.S. federal tax rate of 21%. The effective tax rate is the result of permanent increases and decreases that net against each other and offset. These increases and decreases include earnings in jurisdictions with statutory tax rates higher than the United States, expenses that are statutorily non-deductible for income tax purposes and U.S. state taxes, partially offset by excess share-based compensation benefits, tax credit utilization, and the statutory U.S. deduction related to our non-U.S. subsidiaries’ income.

Unrecognized Tax Benefits

During the three months ended March 31, 2024, our gross unrecognized tax benefits, excluding interest and penalties, increased by $0.5 million, primarily due to increases in tax positions taken in the current and prior periods. During the three months ended March 31, 2024, the total amount of unrecognized tax benefits that, if recognized, would cause our effective tax rate to increase by $0.7 million. The difference between these amounts relates to (1) offsetting tax effects from other tax jurisdictions, and (2) interest expense, net of deferred taxes.

During the three months ended March 31, 2024, we recognized $0.2 million of interest and penalty expense related to unrecognized tax benefits in our Condensed Consolidated Statement of Operations. As of March 31, 2024 and December 31, 2023, the total amount of accrued interest and penalty expense related to unrecognized tax benefits recorded in our Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets was $2.4 million and $2.2 million, respectively.

During the next twelve months, it is reasonably possible that our unrecognized tax benefits may decrease by $0.3 million due to expiration of statutes of limitations and settlements with tax authorities. However, if the ultimate resolution of income tax examinations results in amounts that differ from this estimate, we will record additional income tax expense or benefit in the period in which such matters are effectively settled.

Note 10 - Goodwill and Intangible Assets
Our business acquisitions have typically resulted in the recognition of goodwill and other intangible assets. We follow the provisions under ASC Topic 350, “Intangibles – Goodwill and Other” as it relates to the accounting for goodwill in our condensed consolidated financial statements. These provisions require that we, on at least an annual basis, evaluate the fair value of the reporting units to which goodwill is assigned and attributed and compare that fair value to the carrying value of the reporting unit to determine if an impairment has occurred. We perform our annual impairment testing during the fourth quarter. Impairment testing takes place more often than annually if events or circumstances indicate a change in status that would indicate a potential impairment. We believe that there have been no events or circumstances which would more likely than not reduce the fair value for our reporting units below its carrying value. A reporting unit is an operating segment unless discrete financial information is prepared and reviewed by segment management for businesses one level below that operating segment (a “component”), in which case the component would be the reporting unit. As of March 31, 2024, we had four reporting units.
Intangibles with indefinite useful lives, consisting of trade names, are tested annually for impairment, or when events or changes in circumstances indicate the potential for impairment. If the carrying amount of an indefinite lived intangible asset exceeds its fair value, the intangible asset is written down to its fair value. Fair value is calculated using relief from royalty method. We amortize the cost of definite-lived intangibles over their estimated useful lives. We also review all of our definite-lived intangible assets for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate the carrying amount of an asset may not be recoverable.

Note 12 - Commitments and Contingencies
Environmental Matters
For environmental matters, we record a liability for estimated remediation costs when it is probable that we will be responsible for such costs and they can be reasonably estimated. Generally, third party specialists assist in the estimation of remediation costs. The environmental remediation liability as of March 31, 2024 is substantially related to the former manufacturing site in Goodyear, Arizona (the “Goodyear Site”) discussed below. On June 21, 2021, we completed the sale of substantially all of the property associated with what we have historically called the Goodyear Site for $8.7 million, retaining only a small parcel on which our remediation and treatment systems are located. We will continue to be responsible for all remediation costs associated with the Goodyear Site.

On August 12, 2022, Crane Holdings, Co., Crane Company, a then wholly-owned subsidiary of Crane Holdings, Co., and Redco Corporation (f/k/a Crane Co., (“Redco”) a then wholly-owned subsidiary of Crane Company that held liabilities including asbestos liabilities and related insurance assets, entered into a Stock Purchase Agreement (the “Redco Purchase Agreement”) with Spruce Lake Liability Management Holdco LLC (“Redco Buyer”), an unrelated third party long-term liability management company specializing in the acquisition and management of legacy corporate liabilities, whereby Crane Company transferred to Redco Buyer all of the issued and outstanding shares of Redco (the “Redco Sale”). Pursuant to the terms of the Redco Purchase Agreement, Crane Company and Redco Buyer will each indemnify the other for breaches of representations and warranties, breaches of covenants and obligations and certain liabilities, subject to the terms of the Redco Purchase Agreement. Such covenants and obligations include obligations of Crane Company to indemnify Redco and its affiliates for all other historical liabilities of Redco, which include certain potential environmental liabilities. Crane Holdings, Co. guaranteed the full payment and performance of Crane Company’s indemnification obligations under the Redco Purchase Agreement. On April 3, 2023, Crane Holdings, Co. completed the Separation, pursuant to which, among other things, all outstanding shares of Crane Company were distributed to Crane Holdings, Co.’s stockholders. Upon completion of the Separation, pursuant to the terms of the Redco Purchase Agreement, Crane Holdings, Co. was released from its guarantee of Crane Company’s indemnification obligations under the Redco Purchase Agreement. Prior to the effective date of the Redco Sale, the U.S. Department of Justice agreed that Crane Holdings, Co. and, following completion of the Separation, Crane Company will be primarily liable for the Goodyear Site. The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection agreed to transfer the liability of the Roseland Site to Crane Holdings, Co., and to further transfer this environmental liability to Crane Company upon effectiveness of the Separation. The potential liability for the Crab Orchard Site referenced below remains a direct obligation of Redco. As noted above, however, Crane Company has agreed to indemnify Redco and Redco Buyer against the Goodyear, Roseland, and Crab Orchard environmental liabilities. Thus, references below in this Note 12 to “we”, and “us” refer to Crane Company in its capacity as the primarily responsible party for the Goodyear and Roseland Sites, and as indemnitor to the Redco Buyer on the Crab Orchard Site.
Goodyear Site
The Goodyear Site was operated by Unidynamics/Phoenix, Inc. (“UPI”), which became an indirect subsidiary in 1985 when Crane Co. (n/k/a Redco) acquired UPI’s parent company, UniDynamics Corporation. UPI was an indirect subsidiary of Crane Holdings, Co. pre-Separation and became an indirect subsidiary of Crane Company following completion of the Separation. UPI manufactured explosive and pyrotechnic compounds, including components for critical military programs, for the U.S. Government at the Goodyear Site from 1962 to 1993, under contracts with the U.S. Department of Defense and other government agencies and certain of their prime contractors. In 1990, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (“EPA”) issued administrative orders requiring UPI to design and conduct certain remedial actions, which UPI has done. Groundwater extraction and treatment systems have been in operation at the Goodyear Site since 1994. On July 26, 2006, we entered a consent decree with the EPA with respect to the Goodyear Site providing for, among other things, a work plan for further investigation and remediation activities (inclusive of a supplemental remediation investigation and feasibility study). During the third quarter of 2014, the EPA issued a Record of Decision (“ROD”) amendment permitting, among other things, additional source area remediation resulting in us recording a charge of $49.0 million, extending the accrued costs through 2022. Following the 2014 ROD amendment, we continued our remediation activities and explored an alternative strategy to accelerate remediation of the site. During the fourth quarter of 2019, we received conceptual agreement from the EPA on our alternative remediation strategy which is expected to further reduce the contaminant plume. Accordingly, in 2019, we recorded a pre-tax charge of $18.9 million, net of reimbursements, to extend our forecast period through 2027 and reflect our revised workplan. The remediation of the PGA North Site comprises two main remedial components: a plume management and remediation system (in accordance with the requirements of the 2006 Consent Decree) and source area remediation (to comply with the requirements of the 2014 ROD Amendment). The 2019 conceptual agreement and modified remedial approach focused on enhanced extraction of contaminated groundwater and targeted reinjection of treated groundwater and was designed to accelerate remedial progress at the site. The modified remedial approach required certain capital investments and infrastructure upgrades across the broader plume area, with the final components of this approach commissioned in 2022. In addition, the modified source area treatment remedy was commissioned in late 2023. As part of our approved remedial plans, the Company is required to conduct periodic groundwater monitoring to demonstrate the effectiveness of these system enhancements and provide the EPA with a report evaluating remedial performance, restoration time frames and potential inefficiencies (which may warrant further system upgrade or modifications). The year 2027 was
22

NOTES TO THE CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
selected as a milestone to enable the collection of 3 to 4 years of post-commissioning data, analysis of data and submission of a performance monitoring report to the EPA with recommendations. This report will document the project restoration time frames for groundwater and outline the future operational scheme, including the key milestones for transitioning from active groundwater treatment to monitoring only. This report will be submitted to the EPA for approval and in combination with regulatory discussions and consultations, will provide clarity on future remedial requirements at the site and associated costs. The total estimated gross liability was $19.4 million and $20.7 million as of March 31, 2024 and December 31, 2023, respectively, and as described below, a portion is reimbursable by the U.S. Government. The current portion of the total estimated liability was $7.8 million as of March 31, 2024 and December 31, 2023, respectively, and represents our best estimate, in consultation with our technical advisors, of total remediation costs expected to be paid during the next twelve-month period. It is not possible at this point to reasonably estimate the amount of any obligation in excess of our current accruals through the 2027 forecast period because of the aforementioned uncertainties, in particular, the continued significant changes in the Goodyear Site conditions and additional expectations of remediation activities experienced in recent years.

On July 31, 2006, we entered into a consent decree with the U.S. Department of Justice on behalf of the Department of Defense and the Department of Energy pursuant to which, among other things, the U.S. Government reimburses us for 21% of qualifying costs of investigation and remediation activities at the Goodyear Site. As of March 31, 2024 and December 31, 2023, we recorded a receivable of $3.8 million respectively, for the expected reimbursements from the U.S. Government in respect of the aggregate liability as at that date. The receivable is reduced as reimbursements and other payments from the U.S. Government are received.
Other Environmental Matters
Roseland, NJ Site
The Roseland Site was operated by Resistoflex Corporation (“Resistoflex”), which became an indirect subsidiary in 1985 when Crane Co. (n/k/a Redco) acquired Resistoflex’s parent company, UniDynamics Corporation. Resistoflex manufactured specialty lined pipe and fittings at the site from the 1950s until it was closed in the mid-1980s. We undertook an extensive soil remediation effort at the Roseland Site following our closure and had been monitoring the Site’s condition in the years that followed. In response to changes in remediation standards, in 2014 we began to conduct further site characterization and delineation studies at the Site. We are in the late stages of our remediation activities at the Site, which include a comprehensive delineation of contaminants of concern in soil, groundwater, surface water, sediment, and indoor air in certain buildings, all in accordance with the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection guidelines and directives.

Marion, IL Site
Crane Co. (n/k/a Redco) has been identified as a potentially responsible party (“PRP”) with respect to environmental contamination at the Crab Orchard National Wildlife Refuge Superfund Site (the “Crab Orchard Site”). The Crab Orchard Site is located near Marion, Illinois, and consists of approximately 55,000 acres. Beginning in 1941, the United States used the Crab Orchard Site for the production of ordnance and other related products for use in World War II. In 1947, about half of the Crab Orchard Site was leased to a variety of industrial tenants whose activities (which continue to this day) included manufacturing ordnance and explosives. Unidynamics Corporation formerly leased portions of the Crab Orchard Site and conducted manufacturing operations at the Crab Orchard Site from 1952 until 1964. General Dynamics Ordnance and Tactical Systems, Inc. (“GD-OTS”) is in the process of conducting a remedial investigation and feasibility study (“RI-FS”) for portions of the Crab Orchard Site, which include areas where Unidynamics maintained operations, pursuant to an Administrative Order on Consent (the “AOC”). A remedial investigation report was approved in February 2015, and work on the feasibility study is underway. It is unclear when the final feasibility study will be completed, or when a final Record of Decision (“ROD”) may be issued. As noted above, we have agreed to indemnify Redco against the Crab Orchard environmental liabilities, and accordingly we act as Redco’s agent with respect to such liabilities.

GD-OTS asked Crane Co. (n/k/a Redco) to participate in a voluntary, multi-party mediation exercise with respect to response costs that GD-OTS has incurred or will incur in performing its obligations under the AOC, and Crane Co. (n/k/a Redco), the U.S. Government, and other PRPs entered into a non-binding mediation agreement in 2015 (we have since stepped into Redco’s position as a participant in the mediation). The first phase of the mediation, involving certain former munitions or ordnance storage areas, began in November 2017, but did not result in a multi-party settlement agreement. Subsequently, Redco entered discussions directly with GD-OTS and reached an agreement, as of July 13, 2021, to contribute toward GD-OTS’s past RI-FS costs associated with the first-phase areas for an immaterial amount. We, as indemnitor, have also agreed to pay a modest percentage of future RI-FS costs and the United States’ claimed past response costs relative to the first-phase areas, a sum that has proven to be and we expect to continue to be, in the aggregate, an immaterial amount. We understand that GD-
23

NOTES TO THE CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
OTS has also reached agreements with the U.S. Government and other participating PRPs related to the first-phase areas of concern.

Negotiations between GD-OTS, the U.S. Government and remaining participants are underway with respect to resolution of the U.S. Government’s liability for, and contribution claims with respect to, RI/FS costs associated with the remaining areas of the site, including those portions of the Crab Orchard Site where Redco’s predecessor conducted manufacturing and research activities. The participants have reached agreement in principle on a framework for resolving the U.S. Government’s share of RI/FS costs, subject to consummation of a mutually-agreeable consent decree. Further, we have reached a preliminary agreement in principle with GD-OTS on our contribution to the United States’ claimed past response costs, for an immaterial amount, also conditioned on consummation of the consent decree, and further conditioned on a separate agreement to memorialize the parties’ agreement with respect to the United States’ response costs. At present, we cannot predict whether or when these negotiations will result in definitive agreements. Negotiations remain ongoing between us and GD-OTS regarding a potential resolution of GD-OTS’ claim for costs that it has incurred and expects to incur in performing its obligations under the AOC. We at present cannot predict when any determination of the ultimate allocable share of GD-OTS response costs for which we may be liable is likely to be completed. None of these discussions address responsibility for the performance of, or payment of costs incurred in connection with, any remedial design or remedial action that may be required pursuant to the ROD (when it is ultimately issued). It is not possible at this time to reasonably estimate the total amount of any obligation for remediation of the Crab Orchard Site as a whole because the allocation among PRPs, selection of remediation alternatives, and concurrence of regulatory authorities have not yet advanced to the stage where a reasonable estimate can be made. Insurers with contractual coverage obligations for this site have been notified of this potential liability and have been providing coverage, subject to reservations of rights.
Other Proceedings
We regularly review the status of lawsuits, claims and proceedings that have been or may be asserted against us relating to the conduct of our business, including those pertaining to product liability, including government contracting violations, patent infringement, commercial, employment, employee benefits, environmental and stockholder matters. We record a provision for a liability for such matters when it is considered probable that a liability has been incurred and the amount of the loss can be reasonably estimated. These provisions, if any, are reviewed quarterly and adjusted as additional information becomes available. If either or both of the criteria are not met, we assess whether there is at least a reasonable possibility that a loss, or additional losses, may have been incurred. If there is a reasonable possibility that a loss or additional loss may have been incurred for such matters, we disclose the estimate of the amount of loss or range of loss, disclose that the amount is immaterial, or disclose that an estimate of loss cannot be made, as applicable. We believe that as of March 31, 2024, there was no reasonable possibility that a material loss, or any additional material losses, may have been incurred for such matters, and that adequate provision has been made in our financial statements for the potential impact of all such matters.

Credit FacilitiesOn March 17, 2023, the Company entered into a senior secured credit agreement (the “Credit Agreement”), which provided for (i) a $500 million, 5-year revolving credit facility (the “Revolving Facility”) and (ii) a $300 million, 3-year term loan facility (the “Term Facility”), funding under each of which became available in connection with the Separation. On April 3, 2023, the Company borrowed the full amount of the Term Facility.

On October 3, 2023, the Company exercised a portion of the accordion feature under its existing revolving credit facility to increase the available borrowing capacity from $500 million, to $800 million. The corresponding amendment established incremental revolving commitments in an aggregate amount of $300 million and refreshed the incremental capacity under the Company’s existing credit agreement.

The Company made principal prepayments of $1.9 million on the Term Facility during the three months ended March 31, 2024. The Company had net borrowings of $110.0 million under the Revolving Facility during the first quarter of 2024, primarily to fund the Vian acquisition and for general corporate and working capital purposes.

The Revolving Facility allows us to borrow, repay and re-borrow funds from time to time prior to the maturity of the Revolving Facility without any penalty or premium, subject to customary borrowing conditions for facilities of this type and the reimbursement of breakage costs. Borrowings under the Term Facility are prepayable without premium or penalty, subject to customary reimbursement of breakage costs. Interest on loans advanced under the Credit Agreement accrues, at our option, at a rate per annum equal to (1) adjusted term SOFR plus a credit spread adjustment of 0.10% for the applicable interest period plus a margin ranging from 1.50% to 2.25% or (2) a base rate plus a margin ranging from 0.50% to 1.25%, in each case, with such margin determined based on the lower of the ratings of our senior, unsecured long-term debt (the “Ratings”) and our total net leverage ratio. We are required to pay a fee on undrawn commitments under the Revolving Facility at a rate per annum that ranges from 0.20% to 0.35%, based on the lower of the Ratings and our total net leverage ratio. The Credit Agreement contains customary affirmative and negative covenants for credit facilities of this type, including limitations on our and our subsidiaries with respect to indebtedness, liens, mergers, consolidations, liquidations and dissolutions, sales of all or substantially all assets, transactions with affiliates, hedging arrangements and amendments to our organizational documents or to certain subordinated debt agreements. As of the last day of each fiscal quarter, our total net leverage ratio cannot exceed 3.50 to 1.00 (provided that, at our election, such maximum ratio may be increased to 4.00 to 1.00 for specified periods following our consummation of certain material acquisitions) and our minimum interest coverage ratio must be at least 3.00 to 1.00. The Credit Agreement also includes customary events of default, including failure to pay principal, interest or fees when due, failure to comply with covenants, any representation or warranty made by us or any of our material subsidiaries being false in any material respect, default under certain other material indebtedness, certain insolvency or receivership events affecting us and our material subsidiaries, certain ERISA events, material judgments and a change in control, in each case, subject to cure periods and thresholds where customary. The Company was in compliance with all such covenants as of March 31, 2024.

364-Day Credit Agreement - On August 11, 2022, the Company entered into a senior unsecured 364-day credit facility (the “364-Day Credit Agreement”) under which it borrowed term loans denominated in U.S. dollars (the “Term Loans”) in an aggregate principal amount of $400 million. During the first quarter of 2023, the Company repaid the remaining principal of $400 million under the 364-Day Credit Agreement.

Note 14 - Fair Value Measurements
Accounting standards define fair value as the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. Fair value measurements are to be considered from the perspective of a market participant that holds the asset or owes the liability. The standards also establish a fair value hierarchy which requires an entity to maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs when measuring fair value.
The standards describe three levels of inputs that may be used to measure fair value:
Level 1: Quoted prices in active markets for identical or similar assets and liabilities.
Level 2: Quoted prices for identical or similar assets and liabilities in markets that are not active or observable inputs other than quoted prices in active markets for identical or similar assets and liabilities. Level 2 assets and liabilities include over-the-counter derivatives, principally forward foreign exchange contracts, whose value is determined using pricing models with inputs that are generally based on published foreign exchange rates and exchange traded prices, adjusted for other specific inputs that are primarily observable in the market or can be derived principally from or corroborated by observable market data.
Level 3: Unobservable inputs that are supported by little or no market activity and that are significant to the fair value of the assets or liabilities.
Valuation Technique
The carrying value of our financial assets and liabilities, including cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable and accounts payable approximate fair value, without being discounted, due to the short periods during which these amounts are outstanding.
We are exposed to certain risks related to our ongoing business operations, including market risks related to fluctuation in currency exchange. We use foreign exchange contracts to manage the risk of certain cross-currency business relationships to minimize the impact of currency exchange fluctuations on our earnings and cash flows. We do not hold or issue derivative financial instruments for trading or speculative purposes. Foreign exchange contracts not designated as hedging instruments had a notional value of $19.0 million and $11.3 million as of March 31, 2024 and December 31, 2023, respectively. Our derivative assets and liabilities include foreign exchange contract derivatives that are measured at fair value using internal models based on observable market inputs such as forward rates and interest rates. Based on these inputs, the derivatives are classified within Level 2 of the valuation hierarchy. Such derivative receivable amounts are recorded within “Other current assets” on our Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets and was $0.1 million as of March 31, 2024 and December 31, 2023, respectively. Such derivative liability amounts are recorded within “Accrued liabilities” on our Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets and were $0.2 million and $0.1 million as of March 31, 2024 and December 31, 2023, respectively.

Note 15 - Restructuring
Overview
In the fourth quarter of 2022, in response to economic uncertainty, we initiated modest workforce reductions of approximately 160 employees, or about 2% of our global workforce. We expect to complete the program in the fourth quarter of 2024.
Our restructuring liability was $2.4 million and $4.7 million, as of March 31, 2024 and December 31, 2023, respectively.

Note 16 - Subsequent Events
Effective May 1, 2024, the Company completed the acquisition of CryoWorks, Inc. (“CryoWorks”) for $61 million on a cash-free and debt-free basis, subject to a net working capital adjustment. On April 29, 2024, we borrowed approximately $50 million under the Company’s existing Revolving Facility to fund the CryoWorks acquisition. CryoWorks is a leading supplier of vacuum insulated pipe systems for hydrogen and cryogenic applications. CryoWorks will be included in the Process Flow Technologies segment.

MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

Item 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations
This Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q contains information about Crane Company some of which includes “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Forward-looking statements are statements other than historical information or statements about our current condition. You can identify forward-looking statements by the use of terms such as “believes,” “contemplates,” “expects,” “may,” “could,” “should,” “would,” or “anticipates,” other similar phrases, or the negatives of these terms.

Reference herein to “Crane,” “the Company,” “we,” “us” and “our” refer to Crane Company and its subsidiaries unless the context specifically states or implies otherwise. References to “core business” or “core sales” in this report include sales from acquired businesses starting from and after the first anniversary of the acquisition but exclude currency effects. Amounts in the following discussion are presented in millions, except employee, share and per share data, or unless otherwise stated.

We have based the forward-looking statements relating to our operations on our current expectations, estimates and projections about us and the markets we serve. We caution you that these statements are not guarantees of future performance and involve risks and uncertainties. These statements should be considered in conjunction with the discussion in Part I, the information set forth under Item 1A, “Risk Factors” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2023. We have based many of these forward-looking statements on assumptions about future events that may prove to be inaccurate. Accordingly, our actual outcomes and results may differ materially from what we have expressed or forecast in the forward-looking statements. Any differences could result from a variety of factors, including the following:

The effect of changes in economic conditions in the markets in which we operate, including financial market conditions, end markets for our products, fluctuations in raw material prices, inflationary pressures, supply chain disruptions and access to key raw materials, higher interest rates and the financial condition of our customers and suppliers;
Economic, social and political instability, currency fluctuation and other risks of doing business outside of the United States;
The impact of commercial air traffic levels which are affected by a different array of factors including general economic conditions and global corporate travel spending, or terrorism;
Competitive pressures, including the need for technology improvement, successful new product development and introduction and any inability to pass increased costs of raw materials to customers;
Our ongoing need to attract and retain highly qualified personnel and key management;
Our ability to successfully identify, value and integrate acquisitions and to realize synergies and opportunities for growth and innovation;
Information systems and technology networks failures and breaches in data security, personally identifiable and other information, non-compliance with our contractual or other legal obligations regarding such information;

MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS
Recent Transactions
CryoWorks Acquisition
Effective May 1, 2024, the Company completed the acquisition of CryoWorks, Inc. (“CryoWorks”) for $61 million on a cash-free and debt-free basis, subject to a net working capital adjustment. On April 29, 2024, we borrowed approximately $50 million under the Company’s existing Revolving Facility to fund the Cryoworks acquisition. CryoWorks is a leading supplier of vacuum insulated pipe systems for hydrogen and cryogenic applications. CryoWorks will be included in the Process Flow Technologies segment.

Outlook
Our sales depend heavily on industries that are cyclical in nature or are subject to market conditions, which may cause customer demand for our products to be volatile and unpredictable. Demand in these industries is affected by fluctuations in domestic and international economic conditions, as well as currency fluctuations, commodity costs, and a variety of other factors.
For 2024, we expect a total year-over-year sales increase of approximately 10%, driven by approximately 4% to 6% core growth, and approximately 5% sales contribution from the Baum lined piping GmbH, Vian Enterprises, Inc. and CryoWorks, Inc. acquisitions. We expect an improvement in operating profit driven primarily by lower transaction related expenses, productivity benefits, operating leverages on higher volumes, higher pricing net of inflation and contributions from acquisitions, partially offset by unfavorable mix.
Aerospace & Electronics
In 2024, we expect Aerospace & Electronics sales to increase in the mid-teens range compared to 2023, driven by approximately 12% core sales and a 4% to 5% contribution from the Vian Enterprises, Inc. acquisition. We expect a substantial improvement in our commercial OEM business driven by higher aircraft build rates, and we expect an improvement in our commercial aftermarket business given continued recovery in airline flight hours. We expect our defense OEM sales to grow slightly, but the defense aftermarket businesses are expected to grow significantly given continued global geopolitical uncertainty which is driving increased demand to replace legacy product sales. We expect segment operating profit and operating margin to increase compared to 2023 driven primarily by the impact of operating leverage on higher volumes, pricing and productivity benefits.
Process Flow Technologies
In 2024, we expect Process Flow Technologies sales to increase approximately 7% driven by contribution from the Baum lined piping GmbH and CryoWorks, Inc. acquisitions, with core sales increasing approximately 1%.
We expect Process Valves and Related Products sales to increase in the mid to high single digit range compared to 2023, driven by mid- to high-single digit contribution from acquisitions, with core sales approximately flat. We expect Commercial Valves sales to increase in the low- to mid-single digit range, and we expect Pumps and Systems sales to increase in the mid- to high-single digit range compared to 2023, driven by strong demand across municipal and non-residential U.S. end markets. We expect an improvement in segment operating profit and operating margin compared to 2023, driven primarily by productivity and higher pricing net of inflation, partially offset by lower volumes and unfavorable mix.
Engineered Materials
In 2024, we expect Engineered materials sales to be flat compared to 2023, with a modest increase in sales to the Recreational Vehicle market, offset by a decline in sales to the Transportation market.
We expect operating profit and operating margin to be approximately flat compared to 2023.

Sales increased by $51.5 million, or 10.0%, to $565.3 million in 2024. The period-over-period change in sales included:
an increase in sales related to the BAUM and Vian acquisitions of $25.8 million, or 5.0%;
an increase in core sales of $24.1 million, or 4.7%, which was driven primarily by higher pricing; and
favorable foreign currency translation of $1.6 million.
Cost of sales increased by $37.9 million, or 12.3%, to $344.8 million in 2024. The increase is primarily related to higher material, labor and other manufacturing costs of $30.8 million, or 10.0%, driven by the higher sales, coupled with the impact from the BAUM and Vian acquisitions of $21.9 million, or 7.1%, partially offset by strong productivity gains and favorable mix of $16.7 million, or 5.4%.
Selling, general and administrative expenses increased by $1.7 million, or 1.3%, to $131.1 million in 2024, which was primarily driven by the impact from the BAUM and Vian acquisitions.
Operating profit increased by $11.9 million, or 15.4%, to $89.4 million in 2024. The increase is primarily due to strong productivity gains of $13.2 million, or 17.0%, coupled with favorable mix and higher volumes of $8.4 million, or 10.8%, partially offset by higher material, labor and other manufacturing costs net of higher pricing of $10.4 million, or 13.4%.
Our effective tax rate for the three months ended March 31, 2024, is slightly lower than the prior year’s comparable period primarily due to lower non-U.S. taxes and lower statutorily non-deductible transaction costs.

Our effective tax rate for the three months ended March 31, 2024, is equal to the statutory U.S. federal tax rate of 21%. The effective tax rate is the result of permanent increases and decreases that net against each other and offset. These increases and decreases include earnings in jurisdictions with statutory tax rates higher than the United States, expenses that are statutorily non-deductible for income tax purposes and U.S. state taxes, partially offset by excess share-based compensation benefits, tax credit utilization, and the statutory U.S. deduction related to our non-U.S. subsidiaries’ income.
