NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (Unaudited)
Note 1. Summary of Significant Accounting Policies
Basis of Presentation
The accompanying unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements of Donaldson Company, Inc. and its subsidiaries (the Company) have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) in the United States (U.S.) and the instructions to Form 10-Q and Rule 10-01 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and notes required for complete financial statements. In the opinion of management, all adjustments considered necessary for a fair statement of earnings, comprehensive income, financial position, cash flows and changes in stockholders’ equity have been included and are of a normal recurring nature. Operating results for the three month period ended October 31, 2021 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for future periods. The year end Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheet information was derived from the Company’s Audited Consolidated Financial Statements but does not include all disclosures required by GAAP. For further information, refer to the Audited Consolidated Financial Statements and Notes thereto included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended July 31, 2021.
Principles of Consolidation
The Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements include the accounts of the Company and all of its majority-owned subsidiaries. All intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated. The Company’s joint ventures are not majority-owned and are accounted for under the equity method.
Use of Estimates
The preparation of the Company’s financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the amount of assets and liabilities and the disclosures regarding contingent assets and liabilities at period end and the reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.
The effects of the ongoing Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic continue to impact global economic conditions. The Company continues to experience supply chain disruptions, including global logistic challenges, labor constraints and low supplies of steel, petrochemical products and filter media. These disruptions have slowed the Company’s production speed and increased lead times. The Company has undertaken steps to mitigate these negative impacts, such as qualifying additional suppliers. These disruptions impeded the Company’s ability to meet strengthening demand. This dynamic impacted results in the first quarter of fiscal 2022 and is expected to continue throughout fiscal 2022.
New Accounting Standards Not Yet Adopted
The Company considers the applicability and impact of the Financial Accounting Standards Board’s Accounting Standards Updates (ASUs) issued but not yet adopted. The Company assessed ASUs recently issued and determined that they were either not applicable or were not expected to have a material impact on the Company’s financial reporting.
Note 2. Acquisitions
On November 22, 2021, the Company acquired Solaris Biotechnology (Solaris), headquartered in Porto Mantovano, Italy, with U.S. operations based in Berkeley, California, for approximately €41 million, or $46.2 million. Solaris designs and manufactures bioprocessing equipment, including bioreactors, fermenters and tangential flow filtration systems for use in food and beverage, biotechnology and other life sciences markets. Solaris expects to generate calendar year 2021 sales of approximately €5 million, or $5.6 million, and will be reported within the Company’s Industrial Filtration Solutions business in the Industrial Products segment. Management expects to finalize the purchase accounting by the first quarter of fiscal 2023.
Note 3. Revenue
The Company recognizes revenue on a wide range of filtration solutions sold to customers in many industries around the globe. Most of the Company’s performance obligations within customer sales contracts are for manufactured filtration systems and replacement parts. The Company also performs limited services and installation. Customer contracts may include multiple performance obligations and the transaction price is allocated to each distinct performance obligation based on its relative standalone selling price.

Revenue Disaggregation
Net sales, generally disaggregated by location where the customer’s order was placed, were as follows (in millions):
Three Months Ended

 20212020
U.S. and Canada$300.8 $251.0 
Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA)224.6 187.8 
Asia Pacific163.7 144.1 
Latin America71.8 53.7 
Total net sales$760.9 $636.6 
See Note 17 for net sales disaggregated by segment.
Contract Assets and Liabilities
The satisfaction of performance obligations and the resulting recognition of revenue typically correspond with billing of the customer. In limited circumstances, the customer may be billed at a time later than when revenue is recognized, resulting in contract assets, which are reported in other current assets on the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets. Contract assets were $18.3 million and $14.9 million as of October 31, 2021 and July 31, 2021, respectively. In other limited circumstances, the customer may make a payment at a time earlier than when revenue is recognized and prior to the satisfaction of performance obligations, resulting in contract liabilities, which are reported in other current liabilities and other long-term liabilities on the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets. Contract liabilities were $12.7 million and $12.2 million as of October 31, 2021 and July 31, 2021, respectively.
The Company will recognize revenue in future periods related to remaining performance obligations for certain open contracts. Generally, these contracts have terms of one year or less. The amount of revenue related to unsatisfied performance obligations in which the original duration of the contract is greater than one year, is not significant.

Note 6. Goodwill and Intangible Assets
The Company has allocated goodwill to reporting units within its Engine Products and Industrial Products segments. There were no dispositions or impairment charges recorded during the three months ended October 31, 2021 and 2020. Goodwill is assessed for impairment annually during the third quarter of the fiscal year, or more frequently if events or changes in circumstances indicate that the asset may be impaired. The Company performed its annual impairment assessment during the third quarter of fiscal 2021 and did not record any impairment as a result of this assessment.

Amortization expense was $2.2 million and $2.1 million for the three months ended October 31, 2021 and 2020, respectively.
Note 7. Long-Term Debt
As of October 31, 2021, there was $427.5 million available on the Company’s $500.0 million unsecured revolving credit facility that expires on May 21, 2026.
In fiscal 2021, the Company entered into an agreement in which the Company would issue and sell two tranches of unsecured senior notes, totaling $150.0 million. The first tranche, received in August 2021, was a $100.0 million 10 year note due 2031 at a fixed interest rate of 2.50%. The second tranche, received in November 2021, was a $50.0 million seven year note due 2028 at a fixed interest rate of 2.12%.
Certain debt agreements contain financial covenants related to interest coverage and leverage ratios, as well as other non-financial covenants. As of October 31, 2021, the Company was in compliance with all such covenants.
Note 8. Income Taxes
The Company files income tax returns in the U.S. federal jurisdiction and various state and foreign jurisdictions. The U.S. Internal Revenue Service has completed examinations of the Company’s U.S. federal income tax returns through 2017. With few exceptions, the Company is no longer subject to state and foreign income tax examinations by tax authorities for years before 2016.
As of October 31, 2021, gross unrecognized tax benefits were $19.0 million and accrued interest and penalties on these unrecognized tax benefits were $1.7 million. The Company recognizes accrued interest and penalties related to unrecognized tax benefits in income taxes in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Earnings. The Company estimates that within the next 12 months it is reasonably possible that its uncertain tax positions could decrease by as much as $5.3 million due to lapses in statutes of limitation. The statutes of limitation periods for the Company’s various tax jurisdictions range from two years to 10 years.
The Company believes it is remote that any adjustment necessary to the reserve for income taxes over the next 12 months will be material. However, it is possible the ultimate resolution of audits or disputes may result in a material change to the reserve for income taxes, although the quantification of such potential adjustments cannot be made at this time.

Note 9. Earnings Per Share
Basic net earnings per share is computed by dividing net earnings by the weighted average number of outstanding common shares. Diluted net earnings per share is computed by dividing net earnings by the weighted average number of outstanding common shares and common share equivalents relating to stock options and other stock incentive plans.
Basic and diluted net earnings per share calculations were as follows (in millions, except per share amounts):

The Company’s Board of Directors has authorized the repurchase of up to 13.0 million shares of common stock under the Company’s stock repurchase plan. This repurchase authorization is effective until terminated by the Board of Directors. During the three months ended October 31, 2021, the Company repurchased 1.6 million shares for $102.9 million. As of October 31, 2021, the Company had remaining authorization to repurchase 6.7 million shares under this plan.

(3)Includes net amortization of prior service costs and actuarial losses included in net periodic benefit costs that were reclassified from accumulated other comprehensive loss on the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets to net sales, cost of sales and operating expenses in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Earnings, see Note 13.
Note 12. Stock-Based Compensation
The Company recognizes compensation expense for all stock-based awards based on the grant date fair value of the award. Stock-based awards consist primarily of non-qualified stock options, performance-based awards, restricted stock awards and restricted stock units. Grants related to restricted stock awards and restricted stock units are immaterial. The Company issues treasury shares for stock options and performance-based awards.
Stock Options
The exercise price of options granted is equal to the market price of the Company’s common stock at the date of the grant. Options are generally exercisable for up to 10 years from the date of grant and vest in equal increments over three years.
For the three months ended October 31, 2021 and 2020, the Company recorded pretax stock-based compensation expense associated with options of $6.9 million and $5.1 million, respectively. Fair value is calculated using the Black-Scholes option pricing model. The weighted average fair value for options granted during the three months ended October 31, 2021 and 2020 was $14.24 and $10.08 per share, respectively.

Performance-Based Awards
Performance-based awards are payable in common stock and are based on a formula that measures Company performance over a three year period. These awards are settled after three years with payouts ranging from zero to 200% of the target award value depending on achievement.
For the three months ended October 31, 2021 and 2020, the Company recorded pretax performance-based award expense of $1.7 million and $0.9 million, respectively.

Note 13. Employee Benefit Plans
Defined Benefit Pension Plans
The Company has defined benefit pension plans for many of its hourly and salaried employees. These plans generally provide pension benefits based on years of service and compensation level. Components of net periodic benefit cost other than the service cost component are included in other expense, net in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Earnings.
Net periodic pension (benefits) costs for the Company’s pension plans were as follows (in millions):
 Three Months Ended

Curtailment charge 0.8 
Net periodic pension (benefits) costs$(0.1)$1.9 
In fiscal 2021, the Company recorded a pension curtailment charge of $0.8 million as a result of freezing the pension benefits to certain employees. The corresponding remeasurement resulted in a decrease in the Company’s pension obligation and an adjustment to other comprehensive income in the Condensed Consolidated Statement of Comprehensive Income of $4.0 million. See Note 11.
The Company’s general funding policy is to make at least the minimum required contributions as required by applicable regulations, plus any additional amounts that it determines to be appropriate. Future required pension plan contributions may change significantly depending on the actual rate of return on plan assets, discount rates and regulatory requirements.

Note 14. Fair Value Measurements
Fair value measurements of financial instruments are reported in one of three levels based on the lowest level of significant input used. For Level 1, inputs to the fair value measurement are quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities. For Level 2, inputs to the fair value measurement include quoted prices in active markets for similar assets or liabilities, quoted prices for identical or similar assets or liabilities in markets that are not active and inputs other than quoted prices that are observable for the asset or liability, either directly or indirectly. For Level 3, inputs to the fair value measurement are unobservable inputs or are based on valuation techniques.
Short-Term Financial Instruments
As of October 31, 2021 and July 31, 2021, the carrying values of cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable, short-term borrowings and accounts payable approximate fair value because of the short-term nature of these instruments, and are classified as Level 1 in the fair value hierarchy.
Long-Term Debt
As of October 31, 2021, the estimated fair values of fixed interest rate long-term debt were $392.3 million compared to the carrying values of $375.0 million. As of July 31, 2021, the estimated fair values of fixed interest rate long-term debt were $297.4 million compared to the carrying values of $275.0 million. The fair values are estimated by discounting the projected cash flows using the interest rates at which similar amounts of debt could currently be borrowed. The carrying values of total variable interest rate long-term debt were $175.7 million and $188.3 million as of October 31, 2021 and July 31, 2021, respectively, and approximate their fair values. Long-term debt is classified as Level 2 in the fair value hierarchy.
Equity Method Investments
The Company holds equity method investments in its joint ventures, which are included in other long-term assets on the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets. The aggregate carrying amount of these investments was $23.9 million and $24.2 million as of October 31, 2021 and July 31, 2021, respectively. These equity method investments are measured at fair value on a non-recurring basis. The fair value of the Company’s equity method investments has not been adjusted as there have been no triggering events or changes in circumstance that would have had an adverse impact on the value of these investments. In the event that these investments are required to be measured, they would fall within Level 3 of the fair value hierarchy due to the use of significant unobservable inputs to determine fair value, as the investments are in privately-held entities.
Derivative Fair Value Measurements
The Company enters into derivative instrument agreements, including forward foreign currency exchange contracts and net investment hedges to manage risk in connection with changes in foreign currency. The Company only enters into derivative instrument agreements with counterparties who have highly rated credit. The Company does not enter into derivative instrument agreements for trading or speculative purposes.
The fair values of the Company’s forward foreign currency exchange contracts and net investment hedges reflect the amounts that would be received to sell the assets or paid to transfer the liabilities in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date (exit price). The fair values are based on inputs other than quoted prices that are observable for the asset or liability and are determined by standard calculations and models that use readily observable market parameters. These inputs include foreign currency exchange rates and interest rates. Industry standard data providers are the primary source for forward and spot rate information for both interest rates and foreign currency exchange rates. The fair values of the Company’s forward foreign currency exchange contracts and net investment hedges are classified as Level 2 in the fair value hierarchy.
Forward Foreign Currency Exchange Contracts
The Company buys materials from foreign suppliers. Those transactions can be denominated in those suppliers’ local currency. The Company also sells to customers in foreign countries. Those transactions can be denominated in those customers’ local currency. Both of these transaction types can create volatility in the Company’s financial statements. The Company uses forward currency exchange contracts to manage those exposures and fluctuations. These contracts generally mature in 12 months or less, which is consistent with the forecasts of the related purchases and sales. Certain contracts are designated as cash flow hedges, whereas the remaining contracts, most of which are related to certain intercompany transactions, are not designated.
Net Investment Hedges
The Company uses fixed-to-fixed cross-currency swap agreements to hedge its exposure to adverse foreign currency exchange rate movements for its operations in Europe. The Company has elected the spot method for designating these contracts as net investment hedges.

Forward foreign currency exchange contract assets were recorded in other current assets and in other long-term assets on the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets. Forward foreign currency exchange contract liabilities were recorded in other current liabilities on the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets. The net investment hedge was recorded in other current assets and in other long-term liabilities on the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets.
Changes in the fair value of the Company’s designated hedges are reported in accumulated other comprehensive loss on the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets until the related transaction occurs. Designated hedges are recognized as a component of net sales, cost of sales and operating expenses in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Earnings upon occurrence of the related hedged transaction.
Hedges which are not designated are recognized in other expense, net in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Earnings timed to coincide with the related hedged transactions. Changes in the fair value of these hedges are, likewise, recognized in other expense, net in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Earnings.
The Company classifies cash flows from derivatives designated in a qualifying cash flow hedging relationship in the same category as the cash flows from the hedged items. Cash flows from these derivative transactions are recorded in operating activities in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows.
Amounts related to forward foreign currency exchange contracts are expected to be reclassified into earnings during the next 12 months based on the timing of inventory purchases and sales. Amounts related to excluded components associated with the net investment hedge are expected to be reclassified into earnings through its termination in July 2029.

Liquidity, Capital Resources and Financial Condition
Liquidity
Liquidity is assessed in terms of the Company’s ability to generate cash to fund its operating, investing and financing activities. Significant factors affecting liquidity are cash flows generated from operating activities, capital expenditures, acquisitions, dividends, repurchases of outstanding shares, adequacy of available credit facilities and the ability to attract long-term capital with satisfactory terms. The Company generates substantial cash from the operation of its businesses as its primary source of liquidity, with sufficient liquidity available to fund growth through reinvestment in existing businesses and strategic acquisitions.
Operating Activities
Cash provided by operating activities for the three months ended October 31, 2021 was $42.9 million, compared with $128.9 million for the three months ended October 31, 2020, a decrease of $86.0 million. The decrease in cash provided by operating activities was primarily driven by an increase in inventory as the Company continues to experience strengthening demand while mitigating supply chain disruptions as well as higher incentive compensation paid, partially offset by higher earnings.
Investing Activities
Cash used in investing activities for the three months ended October 31, 2021 was $18.3 million, compared with $18.8 million for the three months ended October 31, 2020, a decrease of $0.5 million. In fiscal 2022, the Company continued investing in its strategic priorities, including capacity expansion.
Financing Activities
Cash used in financing activities generally relates to the use of cash for payment of dividends and repurchases of the Company’s common stock, net borrowing activity and proceeds from the exercise of stock options. To determine the level of dividend and share repurchases, the Company considers recent and projected performance across key financial metrics, including earnings, cash flow from operations and total debt. Dividends paid for the three months ended October 31, 2021 and 2020 were $27.4 million and $26.6 million, respectively. Share repurchases for the three months ended October 31, 2021 and 2020 were $102.9 million and $15.6 million, respectively.
Cash used in financing activities for the three months ended October 31, 2021 was $45.5 million, compared with $78.9 million for the three months ended October 31, 2020, a decrease of $33.4 million. In fiscal 2022, cash was received from issuing long-term debt. In both fiscal 2022 and 2021, cash was used to repay borrowings and to fund the Company’s needs, driven by expenditures on property, plant and equipment, dividends and share repurchases.

The Company believes that the liquidity available from the combination of expected cash generated by operating activities, existing cash and available credit under existing credit facilities will be sufficient to meet its cash requirements for the next 12 months.
To understand the impacts of working capital management, the Company calculates days sales outstanding as the average accounts receivable, net for the quarter, divided by net sales for the quarter multiplied by the number of days in the quarter, and inventory turns as the cost of sales for the quarter, annualized by the ratio of number of the days in the year to the number of days in the quarter, divided by the average inventories, net for the quarter.
Accounts receivable, net as of October 31, 2021, was $545.1 million, compared with $552.7 million as of July 31, 2021, a decrease of $7.6 million. Days sales outstanding were 66 days as of October 31, 2021, up from 65 days at July 31, 2021.
Inventories, net as of October 31, 2021, was $444.7 million, compared with $384.5 million as of July 31, 2021, an increase of $60.2 million. Inventory turns were 4.8 times and 5.4 times per year as of October 31, 2021 and July 31, 2021, respectively.
Long-term debt outstanding was $548.1 million as of October 31, 2021, compared with $461.0 million as of July 31, 2021, an increase of $87.1 million primarily due to an increase in proceeds from long-term debt.
