DOVER CORPORATION
NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(Amounts in thousands except share data and where otherwise indicated) (Unaudited)

1. Basis of Presentation

The accompanying unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") for interim periods and do not include all of the information and note disclosures required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("GAAP") for complete financial statements. These unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements should therefore be read in conjunction with the Consolidated Financial Statements and Notes for Dover Corporation ("Dover" or the "Company") for the year ended December 31, 2023, included in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC on February 9, 2024. The year-end condensed consolidated balance sheet was derived from audited financial statements. 

The accompanying unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP, which requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect amounts reported in the condensed consolidated financial statements and accompanying disclosures. Although these estimates are based on management’s best knowledge of current events and actions that the Company may undertake in the future, actual results may differ from those estimates. The condensed consolidated financial statements reflect all adjustments of a normal, recurring nature that are, in the opinion of management, necessary for a fair statement of results for these interim periods. The results of operations of any interim period are not necessarily indicative of the results of operations for the full year.

2. Revenue

Revenue from Contracts with Customers

A majority of the Company’s revenue is short cycle in nature with shipments within one year from order. A small portion of the Company’s revenue derives from contracts extending over one year. The Company's payment terms generally range between 30 to 90 days and vary by the location of businesses, the type of products manufactured to be sold and the volume of products sold, among other factors.

Disaggregation of Revenue
Revenue from contracts with customers is disaggregated by segment and geographic location, as they best depict the nature and amount of the Company’s revenue. See Note 16 — Segment Information for further details.

Performance Obligations

Approximately 95% of the Company’s revenue is recognized at a point in time, rather than over time, as the Company completes its performance obligations. Specifically, revenue is recognized when control transfers to the customer, typically upon shipment or completion of installation, testing, certification, or other substantive acceptance provisions required under the contract. Approximately 5% of the Company’s revenue is recognized over time and relates to the sale of equipment or services, including software solutions and services, in which the Company transfers control of a good or service over time and the customer simultaneously receives and consumes the benefits provided by the Company's performance as the Company performs, or the Company's performance creates or enhances an asset the customer controls as the asset is created or enhanced, or the Company's performance does not create an asset with an alternative use to the Company and the Company has an enforceable right to payment for its performance to date plus a reasonable margin.

A majority of the Company's contracts have a single performance obligation which represents, in most cases, the equipment or product being sold to the customer. Some contracts include multiple performance obligations such as a product and the related installation, extended warranty, software and digital solutions, and/or maintenance services. For contracts with multiple performance obligations, the Company allocates the total transaction price to each performance obligation in an amount based on the estimated relative standalone selling prices of the promised goods or services underlying each performance obligation.

DOVER CORPORATION
NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(Amounts in thousands except share data and where otherwise indicated) (Unaudited)
At March 31, 2024, we estimated that $197,329 in revenue is expected to be recognized in the future related to performance obligations that are unsatisfied (or partially unsatisfied) at the end of the reporting period. We expect to recognize approximately 75.8% of the Company's unsatisfied (or partially unsatisfied) performance obligations as revenue through 2025, with the remaining balance to be recognized in 2026 and thereafter.

The Company applied the standard's practical expedient that permits the omission of unsatisfied performance obligations for (i) contracts with an original expected length of one year or less and (ii) contracts for which the Company recognizes revenue at the amount to which the Company has the right to invoice for services performed.

Contract Balances

Contract assets primarily relate to the Company's right to consideration for work completed but not billed at the reporting date. Contract liabilities relate to advance consideration received from customers or advance billings for which revenue has not been recognized and are reduced when the associated revenue from the contract is recognized.

The following table provides information about contract assets and contract liabilities from contracts with customers:
 March 31, 2024December 31, 2023December 31, 2022
Contract assets - current
$25,024 $19,561 $11,074 
Contract liabilities - current242,058 211,292 256,933 
Contract liabilities - non-current27,845 19,544 19,879 

The revenue recognized during the three months ended March 31, 2024 and 2023 that was included in contract liabilities at the beginning of the period amounted to $112,211 and $131,563, respectively.

3. Acquisitions

2024 Acquisitions

During the three months ended March 31, 2024, the Company acquired three businesses in separate transactions for total consideration of $174,300, net of cash acquired and inclusive of contingent consideration of $29,428 (a non-cash financing activity). These businesses were acquired to complement and expand upon existing operations within the Clean Energy & Fueling and Imaging & Identification segments. The goodwill recorded as a result of these acquisitions represents the economic benefits expected to be derived from product line expansions and operational synergies and is non-deductible for income tax purposes.

On January 17, 2024, the Company acquired 100% of the equity interests in the Transchem Group ("Transchem"), a supplier of car wash chemicals and associated solutions, for $48,241, net of cash acquired and inclusive of contingent consideration. The Transchem acquisition expands the Company's chemical product offerings in the Clean Energy & Fueling segment, specializing in wash performance and water reclaim technology that reduces water usage and lowers car wash operators' cost. In connection with this acquisition, the Company recorded goodwill of $23,723 and intangible assets of $26,308, primarily related to customer intangibles.

On January 31, 2024, the Company acquired 100% of the equity interests in Bulloch Technologies, Inc. ("Bulloch"), a provider of point-of-sale ("POS"), forecourt controller and electronic payment server solutions to the convenience retail industry, for $122,315, net of cash acquired and inclusive of contingent consideration. The acquisition of Bulloch expands the Company's offering in North America with highly complementary POS and forecourt solutions within the Clean Energy & Fueling segment. In connection with this acquisition, the Company recorded goodwill of $74,250 and intangible assets of $62,417, primarily related to customer intangibles.

One other immaterial acquisition was completed during the three months ended March 31, 2024, within the Imaging & Identification segment. The acquisition is highly complementary to our existing track and trace solutions business, grows our presence in the European market and adds complementary offerings to our portfolio.

4. Dispositions

2024 Dispositions

On March 31, 2024, the Company completed the sale of the De-Sta-Co business, an operating company within the Engineered Products segment, for total consideration, net of cash transferred, of $674,727. Of the total consideration, $63,000 will be received in cash upon finalization of closing activities in India, which occurred on April 1, 2024, and China, which is expected to occur in the second quarter. This amount is recorded within prepaid and other current assets in the condensed consolidated balance sheets as of March 31, 2024 representing a non-cash investing activity. This sale resulted in a preliminary pre-tax gain on disposition of $529,943 ($414,970 after-tax) included within the condensed consolidated statements of earnings for the three months ended March 31, 2024. The total consideration and pre-tax gain on disposition are preliminary and subject to standard post-closing adjustments. The sale does not meet the criteria to be classified as a discontinued operation, as it does not represent a strategic shift that will have a major effect on operations and financial results.

2023 Dispositions

There were no dispositions during the three months ended March 31, 2023.

Depreciation expense totaled $39,404 and $37,530 for the three months ended March 31, 2024 and 2023, respectively.

7. Credit Losses

The Company is exposed to credit losses primarily through sales of products and services. Due to the short-term nature of such receivables, the estimate of the amount of accounts receivable that may not be collected is based on the aging of the accounts receivable balances and other historical and forward-looking information on the financial condition of customers. Balances are written off when determined to be uncollectible.

The following table provides a rollforward of the allowance for credit losses that is deducted from the amortized cost basis of accounts receivable to present the net amount expected to be collected.

The restructuring expenses of $18,655 incurred during the three months ended March 31, 2024 were primarily related to product line exit costs and headcount reductions in the Climate & Sustainability Technologies, Clean Energy & Fueling and Pumps & Process Solutions segments. These restructuring programs were initiated in 2023 and 2024 and the Company will continue to make proactive adjustments to its cost structure to align with current demand trends.

On April 6, 2023, the Company entered into a $1.0 billion five-year unsecured revolving credit facility and on April 4, 2024, the Company entered into a new $500.0 million 364-day unsecured revolving credit facility (together, the "Credit Agreements") with a syndicate of banks. The new 364-day credit facility replaced the existing $500.0 million 364-day credit facility, which expired on April 4, 2024. The lenders' commitments under the five-year and 364-day Credit Agreements will terminate and any outstanding loans under the Credit Agreements will mature on April 6, 2028 and April 3, 2025, respectively. The Company may elect to extend the maturity date of any loans under the new 364-day credit facility until April 3, 2026, subject to conditions specified therein. The Credit Agreements are designated as a liquidity back-stop for the Company's commercial paper program and also are available for general corporate purposes. At the Company's election, loans under the Credit Agreements will bear interest at a base rate plus an applicable margin. The Credit Agreements require the Company to pay facility fees and impose various restrictions on the Company such as, among other things, a requirement to maintain a minimum interest coverage ratio of consolidated EBITDA to consolidated net interest expense of not less than 3.0 to 1. As of March 31, 2024 and December 31, 2023, there were no outstanding borrowings under the five-year and then existing 364-day credit facilities.

The Company was in compliance with all covenants in the Credit Agreements and other long-term debt covenants at March 31, 2024 and had an interest coverage ratio of consolidated EBITDA to consolidated net interest expense of 19.1 to 1.

Letters of Credit and other Guarantees

As of March 31, 2024, the Company had approximately $160.0 million outstanding in letters of credit, surety bonds, and performance and other guarantees which primarily expire on various dates through 2032. These letters of credit and bonds are primarily issued as security for insurance, warranty and other performance obligations. In general, we would only be liable for the amount of these guarantees in the event of default in the performance of our obligations, the probability of which is believed to be remote.

11. Financial Instruments

Derivatives

The Company is exposed to market risk for changes in foreign currency exchange rates due to the global nature of its operations and certain commodity risks. In order to manage these risks, the Company has hedged portions of its forecasted sales and purchases which occur within the next twelve months that are denominated in non-functional currencies, with currency forward contracts designated as cash flow hedges. At March 31, 2024 and December 31, 2023, the Company had contracts with total notional amounts of $153,960 and $171,425, respectively, to exchange currencies, principally euro, pound sterling, Swedish krona, Canadian dollar, Chinese yuan, and Swiss franc. The Company believes it is probable that all forecasted cash flow transactions will occur.

In addition, the Company had outstanding contracts with a total notional amount of $81,615 and $84,867 as of March 31, 2024 and December 31, 2023, respectively, that are not designated as hedging instruments. These instruments are used to reduce the Company's exposure for operating receivables and payables that are denominated in non-functional currencies. Gains and losses on these contracts are recorded in other income, net in the condensed consolidated statements of earnings.

The following table sets forth the fair values of derivative instruments held by the Company as of March 31, 2024 and December 31, 2023 and the balance sheet lines in which they are recorded:

DOVER CORPORATION
NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(Amounts in thousands except share data and where otherwise indicated) (Unaudited)
For a cash flow hedge, the change in estimated fair value of a hedging instrument is recorded in accumulated other comprehensive earnings (loss), net of tax as a separate component of the condensed consolidated statements of stockholders' equity and is reclassified into revenues or cost of goods and services in the condensed consolidated statements of earnings during the period in which the hedged transaction is settled. The amount of gains or losses from hedging activity recorded in earnings is not significant, and the amount of unrealized gains and losses from cash flow hedges that are expected to be reclassified to earnings in the next twelve months is not significant; therefore, additional tabular disclosures are not presented. There are no amounts excluded from the assessment of hedge effectiveness, and the Company's derivative instruments that are subject to credit risk contingent features were not significant.

The Company is exposed to credit loss in the event of nonperformance by counterparties to the financial instrument contracts held by the Company; however, nonperformance by these counterparties is considered unlikely as the Company’s policy is to contract with highly-rated, diversified counterparties.

The Company has designated the €600,000 and €500,000 of euro-denominated notes issued November 9, 2016 and November 4, 2019, respectively, as hedges of a portion of its net investment in euro-denominated operations. Changes in the value of the euro-denominated debt are recognized in foreign currency translation adjustments within other comprehensive earnings (loss) of the condensed consolidated statements of comprehensive earnings to offset changes in the value of the net investment in euro-denominated operations. Changes in the value of the euro-denominated debt resulting from exchange rate differences are offset by changes in the net investment due to the high degree of effectiveness between the hedging instruments and the exposure being hedged.

Amounts recognized in other comprehensive earnings for the gains (losses) on net investment hedges were as follows:
Three Months Ended March 31,
20242023
Gain (loss) on euro-denominated debt
$18,974 $(18,247)

Net gain (loss) on net investment hedges, net of tax

Fair Value Measurements

ASC 820, Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures, establishes a fair value hierarchy that requires the Company to maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs when measuring fair value. A financial instrument’s categorization within the hierarchy is based on the lowest level of input that is significant to the fair value measurement. ASC 820 establishes three levels of inputs that may be used to measure fair value as follows:

Level 1 inputs are quoted prices (unadjusted) in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.

Level 2 inputs include inputs other than Level 1 that are observable, either directly or indirectly, such as quoted prices in active markets for similar assets and liabilities, quoted prices for identical or similar assets or liabilities in markets that are not active, or other inputs that are observable or can be corroborated by observable market data for substantially the full term of assets or liabilities.

Level 3 inputs are unobservable inputs in which little or no market data exists, therefore requiring an entity to develop its own assumptions.

The following table presents the Company’s assets and liabilities measured at fair value on a recurring basis as of March 31, 2024 and December 31, 2023:
March 31, 2024December 31, 2023

DOVER CORPORATION
NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(Amounts in thousands except share data and where otherwise indicated) (Unaudited)
The derivative contracts are measured at fair value using models based on observable market inputs such as foreign currency exchange rates and interest rates; therefore, they are classified within Level 2 of the fair value hierarchy.

In addition to fair value disclosure requirements related to financial instruments carried at fair value, accounting standards require disclosures regarding the fair value of all of the Company's financial instruments.

The estimated fair value of long-term debt at March 31, 2024 and December 31, 2023, was $2,910,785 and $2,950,401, respectively. The estimated fair value of long-term debt is based on quoted market prices for similar instruments and is, therefore, classified as Level 2 within the fair value hierarchy.

The carrying values of cash and cash equivalents, trade receivables, accounts payable and short-term borrowings approximate their fair values as of March 31, 2024 and December 31, 2023 due to the short-term nature of these instruments.

12. Income Taxes

The effective tax rates for the three months ended March 31, 2024 and 2023 were 20.9% and 20.2%, respectively. The increase in the effective tax rate for the three months ended March 31, 2024 relative to the prior year comparable period was primarily driven by the gain on the sale of De-Sta-Co.

Dover and its subsidiaries file tax returns in the U.S., including various state and local returns, and in other foreign jurisdictions. We believe adequate provision has been made for all income tax uncertainties. The Company is routinely audited by taxing authorities in its filing jurisdictions, and a number of these audits are currently underway. The Company believes that within the next twelve months uncertain tax positions may be resolved and statutes of limitations will expire, which could result in a decrease in the gross amount of unrecognized tax benefits of approximately $0 to $4,438.

13. Equity Incentive Program

The Company typically makes its annual grants of equity awards pursuant to actions taken by the Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors at its regularly scheduled first quarter meeting. During the three months ended March 31, 2024, the Company issued stock-settled appreciation rights ("SARs") covering 348,324 shares, performance share awards ("PSAs") of 42,536 and restricted stock units ("RSUs") of 79,821. During the three months ended March 31, 2023, the Company issued SARs covering 358,322 shares, PSAs of 43,656 and RSUs of 78,029.

The Company uses the Black-Scholes option pricing model to determine the fair value of each SAR on the date of grant. Expected volatilities are based on Dover's stock price history, including implied volatilities from traded options on Dover stock. The Company uses historical data to estimate SAR exercise and employee termination patterns within the valuation model. The expected life of SARs granted is derived from the output of the option valuation model and represents the average period of time that SARs granted are expected to be outstanding. The interest rate for periods within the contractual life of the awards is based on the U.S. Treasury yield curve in effect at the time of grant.

The assumptions used in determining the fair value of the SARs awarded during the respective periods were as follows:
SARs
 20242023
Risk-free interest rate4.13 %3.91 %
Dividend yield1.28 %1.32 %

DOVER CORPORATION
NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(Amounts in thousands except share data and where otherwise indicated) (Unaudited)
The PSAs granted in 2024 vest based on the attainment of two equally weighted measures: (i) Dover’s performance relative to established internal metrics (performance condition) and (ii) Dover's performance relative to its peer group (companies listed under the S&P 500 Industrials sector; market condition).

The grant date fair value of the performance condition portion is determined using Dover’s closing stock price at the date of grant and the amount of expense recognized over the vesting period is subject to adjustment based on the expected attainment of the performance condition. The fair value per share at the date of grant for the 2024 performance condition portion is $177.19.

The grant date fair value of the 2024 market condition portion, and all 2023 PSAs, is determined using the Monte Carlo simulated model. The amount of expense recognized over the vesting period is not subject to change based on future market conditions. The assumptions used in the Monte Carlo model to determine the fair value of the PSAs granted in the respective periods were as follows:

PSAs
20242023
Risk-free interest rate4.37 %4.28 %
Dividend yield1.15 %1.32 %
Expected life (years)2.82.9
Volatility23.30 %27.30 %
Grant price$177.19$153.25
Fair value per share at date of grant$287.62$249.48

The performance and vesting periods for all 2024 and 2023 PSAs is three years.

The Company also has granted RSUs, and the fair value of these awards was determined using Dover's closing stock price on the date of grant, which was $160.11 and $153.25 for RSUs granted in 2024 and 2023, respectively.

Stock-based compensation is reported within selling, general and administrative expenses in the condensed consolidated statements of earnings. The following table summarizes the Company’s compensation expense relating to all stock-based incentive plans:

14. Commitments and Contingent Liabilities

Litigation

A few of the Company’s subsidiaries are involved in legal proceedings relating to the cleanup of waste disposal sites identified under federal and state statutes which provide for the allocation of such costs among "potentially responsible parties." In each instance, the extent of the Company’s liability appears to be relatively insignificant in relation to the total projected expenditures and the number of other "potentially responsible parties" involved and is anticipated to be immaterial to the Company. In addition, a few of the Company’s subsidiaries are involved in ongoing remedial activities at certain current and former plant sites, in cooperation with regulatory agencies, and appropriate estimated liabilities have been established. At March 31, 2024 and December 31, 2023, these estimated liabilities for environmental and other matters, including private party claims for exposure to hazardous substances that are probable and estimable, were not significant.

The Company and some of its subsidiaries are also parties to a number of other legal proceedings incidental to their businesses. These proceedings primarily involve claims by private parties alleging injury arising out of use of the Company’s products, patent infringement, employment matters and commercial disputes. Management and legal counsel, at least quarterly, review

the probable outcome of such proceedings, the costs and expenses reasonably expected to be incurred and currently accrued to-date and consider the availability and extent of insurance coverage. The Company has estimated liabilities for these other legal matters that are probable and estimable, and at March 31, 2024 and December 31, 2023, these estimated liabilities were immaterial. While it is not possible at this time to predict the outcome of these legal actions, in the opinion of management, based on the aforementioned reviews, the Company is not currently involved in any legal proceedings which, individually or in the aggregate, could have a material effect on its financial position, results of operations, or cash flows.

Warranty Accruals

Estimated warranty program claims are provided for at the time of sale of the Company's products. Amounts provided for are based on historical costs and adjusted for new claims and are included within other accrued expenses and other liabilities in the condensed consolidated balance sheets. The changes in the carrying amount of product warranties through March 31, 2024 and 2023, were as follows:

The Company recognizes the amortization of net actuarial gains and losses and prior service costs and credits in other income, net within the condensed consolidated statements of earnings.

Cash flow hedges consist mainly of foreign currency forward contracts. The Company recognizes the realized gains and losses on its cash flow hedges in the same line item as the hedged transaction, such as revenue, cost of goods and services, or selling, general and administrative expenses.

Share Repurchases

In August 2023, the Company's Board of Directors approved a new standing share repurchase authorization whereby the Company may repurchase up to 20 million shares beginning on January 1, 2024 through December 31, 2026.

On February 29, 2024, the Company entered into a $500,000 accelerated share repurchase agreement (the "ASR Agreement") with Citibank, N.A. ("Citibank") to repurchase its shares in an accelerated share repurchase program (the "ASR Program"). The ASR Program is classified as equity, initially recorded at fair value with no subsequent remeasurement. The Company conducted the ASR Program under the current share repurchase authorization. The Company funded the ASR Program with proceeds from commercial paper.

Under the terms of the ASR Agreement, the Company paid Citibank $500,000 on March 1, 2024 and on that date received initial delivery of 2,569,839 shares, representing a substantial majority of the shares expected to be retired over the course of the ASR Agreement. The total number of shares ultimately repurchased under the ASR Agreement will be based on the daily volume-weighted average share price of Dover's common stock during the calculation period of the ASR Program, less a discount. The ASR Program is scheduled to be completed in the third quarter of 2024, subject to postponement or acceleration under the terms of the ASR Agreement. The impact of any shares that may be received at the completion of the ASR Program is anti-dilutive and therefore excluded from the calculation of diluted earnings per share. The actual number of shares repurchased will be determined at the completion of the ASR Program.

In the three months ended March 31, 2024 and 2023, exclusive of the ASR Program, there were no share repurchases. As of March 31, 2024, 17,430,161 shares remain authorized for repurchase under the August 2023 share repurchase authorization.

The following table is a reconciliation of the share amounts used in computing earnings per share:
 Three Months Ended March 31,

Weighted average shares outstanding - diluted139,869,000 140,616,000 

Diluted earnings per share amounts are computed using the weighted average number of common shares outstanding and, if dilutive, potential common shares outstanding during the period. Potential common shares consist of the incremental common shares issuable upon the exercise of SARs and vesting of performance shares and RSUs, as determined using the treasury stock method.

The weighted average number of anti-dilutive potential common shares excluded from the calculation above were approximately 107,000 and 88,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2024 and 2023, respectively.

DOVER CORPORATION
NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(Amounts in thousands except share data and where otherwise indicated) (Unaudited)
Recently Adopted Accounting Standard

In September 2022, the FASB issued ASU No. 2022-04 Liabilities-Supplier Finance Programs (Topic 405-50): Disclosure of Supplier Finance Program Obligations. The amendments in this update require a buyer in a supplier finance program to disclose information about the program's nature, activity during the period, changes from period to period, and potential magnitude. The Company adopted the guidance when it became effective on January 1, 2023, except for the rollforward requirement, which was adopted when it became effective January 1, 2024. The adoption did not have a material impact on the Company's condensed consolidated financial statements.

The Company facilitates the opportunity for suppliers to participate in a voluntary supply chain financing ("SCF") program with a third-party financial institution. Participating suppliers are paid directly by the SCF financial institution and, in addition, may elect to sell receivables due from the Company to the SCF financial institution for early payment. Thus, participating suppliers have additional potential flexibility in managing their liquidity by accelerating, at their option and cost, collection of receivables due from the Company.

The Company and its suppliers agree on commercial terms, including payment terms, for the goods and services the Company procures, regardless of whether the supplier participates in SCF. For participating suppliers, the Company’s responsibility is limited to making all payments to the SCF financial institution on the terms originally negotiated with the supplier, irrespective of whether the supplier elects to sell receivables to the SCF financial institution. The Company does not determine the terms or conditions of the arrangement between the SCF financial institution and the Company's suppliers. The SCF financial institution pays the supplier on the invoice due date for any invoices that were not previously sold by the supplier. The agreement between the Company and the SCF financial institution does not require the Company to provide assets pledged as security or other forms of guarantees.

Outstanding payments related to the SCF program are recorded within accounts payable in our condensed consolidated balance sheets. As of the March 31, 2024 and December 31, 2023 amounts due to the SCF financial institution were approximately $181,552 and $193,600, respectively.

OVERVIEW

Dover is a diversified global manufacturer and solutions provider delivering innovative equipment and components, consumable supplies, aftermarket parts, software and digital solutions, and support services through five operating segments: Engineered Products, Clean Energy & Fueling, Imaging & Identification, Pumps & Process Solutions, and Climate & Sustainability Technologies. The Company's entrepreneurial business model encourages, promotes and fosters deep customer engagement and collaboration, which has led to Dover's well-established and valued reputation for providing superior customer service and industry-leading product innovation. Unless the context indicates otherwise, references herein to "Dover," "the Company," and words such as "we," "us," or "our" include Dover Corporation and its consolidated subsidiaries.

Dover's five operating segments are as follows:

Our Engineered Products segment provides a wide range of equipment, components, software, solutions and services to the vehicle aftermarket, waste handling, aerospace and defense, industrial winch and hoist, and fluid dispensing end-markets.

Our Clean Energy & Fueling segment provides components, equipment, software, solutions and services enabling safe and reliable storage, transport and dispensing of traditional and clean fuels (including liquefied natural gas, hydrogen, and electric vehicle charging), cryogenic gases, and other hazardous substances along the supply chain, and safe and efficient operation of convenience retail, retail fueling and vehicle wash establishments.

Our Imaging & Identification segment supplies precision marking and coding, product traceability, brand protection and digital textile printing equipment, as well as related consumables, software and services to the global packaged and consumer goods, pharmaceutical, industrial manufacturing, textile and other end-markets.

Our Pumps & Process Solutions segment manufactures specialty pumps and flow meters, fluid transfer connectors, highly engineered precision components, instruments and digital controls for rotating and reciprocating machines, polymer processing equipment, serving single-use biopharmaceutical production, diversified industrial manufacturing applications, chemical production, plastics and polymer processing, midstream and downstream oil and gas, clean energy markets, thermal management, food and beverage, semiconductor production and medical applications and other end-markets.

Our Climate & Sustainability Technologies segment is a provider of innovative and energy-efficient equipment, components and parts for the commercial refrigeration, heating and cooling and beverage can-making equipment end-markets.

In the first quarter of 2024, revenue was $2.1 billion, which increased $14.9 million, or 0.7%, as compared to the first quarter of 2023. This was driven by acquisition-related revenue growth of 2.0% partially offset by organic revenue decline of 1.3%. The strong performance in several key markets was largely offset by known headwinds in Climate & Sustainability Technologies.

The 1.3% organic revenue decline for the first quarter of 2024 was due to our Climate & Sustainability Technologies and Imaging & Identification segments which had a decline of 20.3% and 1.6%, respectively. The decline was partially offset by the Engineered Products, Pumps & Process Solutions and Clean Energy & Fueling segments which had growth of 9.2%, 4.5% and 1.4%, respectively. For further information, see "Segment Results of Operations" within this Item 2.

22

From a geographic perspective, organic revenue for the U.S., our largest market, increased 1.3% in the first quarter of 2024 compared to the prior year comparable quarter. Organic revenue decreased for Other Americas, Asia and Europe by 5.5%, 4.9% and 0.5%, respectively.

Bookings were $2.2 billion for the three months ended March 31, 2024, an increase of $101.5 million, or 4.8% compared to the prior year comparable quarter. Included in this result was organic growth of 3.0% and acquisition-related growth of 1.9%, partially offset by an unfavorable impact from foreign currency translation of 0.1%. The organic bookings growth was primarily driven by prevailing demand conditions, normalized lead times and better customer and channel partner inventory levels.

Restructuring and other costs for the three months ended March 31, 2024 were $24.7 million which included restructuring charges of $18.7 million and other costs of $6.0 million. Restructuring and other costs were primarily related to product line exit costs in the Climate & Sustainability Technologies. For further discussion related to our restructuring and other costs, see "Restructuring and Other Costs (Benefits)," within this Item 2.

During the three months ended March 31, 2024, the Company acquired three businesses in separate transactions for total consideration of $174.3 million, net of cash acquired and inclusive of contingent consideration of $29.4 million (a non-cash investing activity). See Note 3 — Acquisitions in the condensed consolidated financial statements in Item 1 of this Form 10-Q for further details.

On March 31, 2024, the Company completed the sale of the De-Sta-Co business for total consideration, net of cash transferred, of $674.7 million. This sale resulted in a preliminary pre-tax gain on disposition of $529.9 million included within the condensed consolidated statements of earnings for the three months ended March 31, 2024. See Note 4 — Dispositions in the condensed consolidated financial statements in Item 1 of this Form 10-Q for further details.

On February 29, 2024, the Company entered into a $500 million accelerated share repurchase agreement (the "ASR Agreement") with Citibank, N.A. ("Citibank") to repurchase its shares in an accelerated share repurchase program (the "ASR Program"). The Company funded the ASR Program with proceeds from commercial paper. Under the terms of the ASR Agreement, the Company paid Citibank $500 million on March 1, 2024 and on that date received initial delivery of 2,569,839 shares, representing a substantial majority of the shares expected to be retired over the course of the ASR Agreement. See Note 17 — Stockholders' Equity in the condensed consolidated financial statements in Item 1 of this Form 10-Q for further details.

Revenue

Revenue for the three months ended March 31, 2024 increased $14.9 million, or 0.7%, from the prior year comparable quarter. The increase in revenue was driven by acquisition-related revenue growth of 2.0% partially offset by organic revenue which declined 1.3%, primarily due to lower revenue in our Climate & Sustainability Technologies segment. Customer pricing favorably impacted revenue by approximately 1.6% in the first quarter of 2024 and by 5.1% in the prior year comparable quarter.

Gross Profit

Gross profit for the three months ended March 31, 2024 increased $10.2 million, or 1.4%, and gross profit margin increased 30 basis points to 36.2%, versus the prior year comparable quarter. Gross profit margin increased driven by benefits from pricing and productivity actions, partially offset by lower volumes across some of the Company's businesses.

Selling, General and Administrative Expenses

Selling, general and administrative expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2024 increased $30.7 million, or 7.1%, from the prior year comparable quarter, primarily driven by increased employee compensation and benefits, amortization costs and insurance costs. As a percentage of revenue, selling, general and administrative expenses increased 130 basis points as compared to the prior year comparable quarter to 22.1%.

Research and development costs, including qualifying engineering costs, are expensed when incurred and amounted to $40.1 million and $38.0 million for the three months ended March 31, 2024 and 2023, respectively. These costs as a percentage of revenue were 1.9% and 1.8% for the three months ended March 31, 2024 and 2023, respectively.

Gain on Disposition

Gain on disposition of $529.9 million was due to the sale of the De-Sta-Co business on March 31, 2024. See Note 4 — Dispositions in the condensed consolidated financial statements in Item 1 of this Form 10-Q for further details.
24


Other Income, net

Other income, net includes non-service pension benefit, deferred compensation plan investments gain or loss, earnings or charges from equity method investments, foreign exchange gain or loss, and various other items. Other income, net for the three months ended March 31, 2024 increased $2.6 million from the prior year comparable quarter driven by various immaterial items.

Income Taxes

The effective tax rates for the three months ended March 31, 2024 and 2023 were 20.9% and 20.2%, respectively. The increase in the effective tax rate for the three months ended March 31, 2024 relative to the prior year comparable quarter was primarily driven by the gain on the sale of De-Sta-Co.

The Company is monitoring the changes in tax laws resulting from the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development’s multi-jurisdictional plan of action to address base erosion and profit shifting. We do not expect this to have a material impact on our effective tax rate.

See Note 12 — Income Taxes in the condensed consolidated financial statements in Item 1 of this Form 10-Q for additional details.

Net earnings

Net earnings for the three months ended March 31, 2024 increased 176.6% to $632.2 million, or $4.52 diluted earnings per share, from $228.6 million, or $1.63 diluted earnings per share, in the prior year comparable quarter. The increase in net earnings is driven by the after-tax gain on the sale of De-Sta-Co of $415.0 million.

SEGMENT RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

The summary that follows provides a discussion of the results of operations of each of our five reportable operating segments (Engineered Products, Clean Energy & Fueling, Imaging & Identification, Pumps & Process Solutions, and Climate & Sustainability Technologies). Each of these segments is comprised of various product and service offerings that serve multiple markets. We evaluate our operating segment performance based on segment earnings as defined in Note 16 — Segment Information in the condensed consolidated financial statements in Item 1 of this Form 10-Q.

We report organic revenue growth, which excludes the impact of foreign currency exchange rates and the impact of acquisitions and divestitures. See "Non-GAAP Disclosures" at the end of this Item 2.

Additionally, we use the following operational metrics in monitoring the performance of the business. We believe the operational metrics are useful to investors and other users of our financial information in assessing the performance of our segments:

Bookings represent total orders received from customers in the current reporting period and exclude de-bookings related to orders received in prior periods, if any. This metric is an important measure of performance and an indicator of order trends.

Organic bookings represent bookings excluding the impact of foreign currency exchange rates and the impact of acquisitions and dispositions. This metric is an important measure of performance and an indicator of revenue order trends.

Book-to-bill is a ratio of the amount of bookings received from customers during a period divided by the amount of revenue recorded during that same period. This metric is a useful indicator of demand.

Engineered Products
Our Engineered Products segment provides a wide range of equipment, components, software, solutions and services to the vehicle aftermarket, waste handling, aerospace and defense, industrial winch and hoist, and fluid dispensing end-markets.

First Quarter 2024 Compared to the First Quarter 2023

Engineered Products revenue for the first quarter of 2024 increased $45.6 million, or 9.2%, as compared to the first quarter of 2023, driven by organic growth of 9.2%. Customer pricing favorably impacted revenue in the first quarter of 2024 by approximately 1.6% and by 4.1% in the prior year comparable quarter.

26

The organic revenue growth was primarily driven by continued robust demand in our waste handling business as national and regional waste haulers and municipal governments invest to upgrade their refuse collection vehicle fleets and implement our leading digital technologies to drive efficiencies in waste collection. Our aerospace and defense business also saw continued solid demand in the quarter. We expect positive organic growth trends to continue through 2024 on the back of robust customer demand in waste handling, growth in aerospace and defense, and improving demand conditions and easier comparable periods in our vehicle service business.

Engineered Products segment earnings increased $19.7 million, or 23.4%, compared to the first quarter of 2023. The increase was primarily driven by organic volume increases, favorable price versus cost dynamics, and productivity initiatives. As a result, segment margin increased to 19.1% from 16.9% as compared to the prior year comparable quarter.

Bookings increased 1.0% for the segment, driven by organic growth of 1.0%. The organic bookings growth was broad-based, but most notable in our waste handling and vehicle service businesses. Segment book-to-bill was 1.00.

Clean Energy & Fueling

Our Clean Energy & Fueling segment provides components, equipment, software, solutions and services enabling safe and reliable storage, transport and dispensing of traditional and clean fuels (including liquefied natural gas, hydrogen, and electric vehicle charging), cryogenic gases, and other hazardous substances along the supply chain, and safe and efficient operation of convenience retail, retail fueling and vehicle wash establishments.

First Quarter 2024 Compared to the First Quarter 2023

Clean Energy & Fueling revenue for the first quarter of 2024 increased $14.3 million, or 3.3%, as compared to the first quarter of 2023, driven by acquisition growth of 1.9% and organic growth of 1.4%. Customer pricing favorably impacted revenue in the first quarter of 2024 by approximately 2.8% and by 4.5% in the prior year comparable quarter.

The organic revenue growth was primarily driven by increased year-over-year pricing and demand in dispensers, especially in Europe and Latin America, growth in cryogenic gases, and the recovery in below ground retail fueling equipment, partially offset by lower shipments in liquefied petroleum gas components and higher cost of capital headwinds in vehicle wash solutions. We expect the organic growth rate to continue into the second quarter and remain positive in the second half of the year.

Clean Energy & Fueling segment earnings decreased $3.9 million, or 5.3%, over the prior year comparable quarter. The decrease was primarily due to lower volumes and unfavorable product mix. Segment margin decreased to 15.7% from 17.1% in the prior year comparable quarter.
27


Overall bookings increased 3.8% as compared to the prior year comparable quarter, driven by acquisition growth of 2.1%, organic growth of 1.6% and a favorable impact from foreign currency translation of 0.1%. The organic bookings growth was primarily driven by increased year over year orders in clean energy components, vehicle wash solutions, and fluid transfer systems equipment. Segment book-to-bill was 1.06.

Imaging & Identification

Our Imaging & Identification segment supplies precision marking and coding, product traceability, brand protection and digital textile printing equipment, as well as related consumables, software and services to the global packaged and consumer goods, pharmaceutical, industrial manufacturing, textile and other end-markets.
