FASTENAL COMPANY AND SUBSIDIARIES
Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements
(Amounts in millions except share and per share information and where otherwise noted)
June 30, 2020 and 2019
(Unaudited)

 
(1) Basis of Presentation
The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements of Fastenal Company and subsidiaries (collectively referred to as the company, Fastenal, or by terms such as we, our, or us) have been prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ('GAAP') for interim financial information. They do not include all information and footnotes required by U.S. GAAP for complete financial statements. However, except as described herein, there has been no material change in the information disclosed in the Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements included in our consolidated financial statements as of and for the year ended December 31, 2019. In the opinion of management, all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring accruals) considered necessary for a fair presentation have been included.
Impact of COVID-19
The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted and could further impact our operations and the operations of our suppliers and vendors as a result of quarantines, facility closures, illnesses, and travel and logistics restrictions. The extent to which the COVID-19 pandemic impacts our business, results of operations, and financial condition will depend on future developments, which are highly uncertain and cannot be predicted, including, but not limited to the duration, spread, severity, and impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on our customers, suppliers, and vendors and the remedial actions and stimulus measures adopted by federal, state, and local governments, and to what extent normal economic and operating conditions can resume. Even after the COVID-19 pandemic has subsided, we may continue to experience adverse impacts to our business as a result of any economic recession or depression that has occurred or may occur in the future. Therefore, the Company cannot reasonably estimate the impact at this time.
Stock Split
On April 17, 2019, the board of directors approved a two-for-one stock split of the company's outstanding common stock. Holders of the company's common stock, par value $0.01 per share, at the close of business on May 2, 2019, received one additional share of common stock for every share of common stock they owned. The stock split took effect at the close of business on May 22, 2019. All historical common stock share and per share information for all periods presented in the accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements and notes thereto have been retroactively adjusted to reflect the stock split.
Recently Adopted Accounting Pronouncements
Effective January 1, 2020, we adopted Financial Accounting Standard Board ('FASB') Accounting Standards Update ('ASU') 2016-13, Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments, which changed the way entities recognize impairment of most financial assets. Short-term and long-term financial assets, as defined by the standard, are impacted by immediate recognition of estimated credit losses in the financial statements, reflecting the net amount expected to be collected. The adoption of this standard had an immaterial impact on our condensed consolidated financial statements.
In January 2017, the FASB issued ASU 2017-01, Business Combinations (Topic 805): Clarifying the Definition of a Business, which provides guidance to assist entities in evaluating whether transactions should be accounted for as acquisitions (or disposals) of assets or businesses. ASU 2017-01 requires that, to be a business, an acquired set must include, at a minimum, an input and a substantive process that together significantly contributes to the ability to create outputs. The company adopted this guidance during the first quarter of 2020 when evaluating the transaction discussed further in Note 2, 'Asset Acquisition'.

(2) Asset Acquisition
On March 30, 2020, we purchased certain assets of Apex Industrial Technologies LLC ('Apex') that have contributed to the development, design, and scalability of the vending delivery platform utilized since 2008 within our industrial vending business to dispense product and lease devices to our customers. In connection with this transaction, we purchased a perpetual and unfettered use of key patents, designs, software and licenses, as well as direct access to the vending equipment supply chain.
The total purchase price of the assets acquired consisted of $125.0 paid in cash at closing. We funded the purchase price with available cash and proceeds from borrowings on our unsecured revolving credit facility. We accounted for the purchase as an asset acquisition as substantially all of the fair value of the gross assets acquired is concentrated in the identifiable intangible assets used in the vending delivery platform for our industrial vending business. On a relative fair value basis, the allocated

identifiable intangible assets total $123.8 and tangible property and equipment total $1.2. The weighted average amortization period of the identifiable intangible assets is approximately 19.4 years.
(3) Revenue
Revenue Recognition
Net sales include products and shipping and handling charges, net of estimates for product returns and any related sales incentives. Revenue is measured as the amount of consideration we expect to receive in exchange for transferring products. All revenue is recognized when we satisfy our performance obligations under the contract. We recognize revenue by transferring the promised products to the customer, with the majority of revenue recognized at the point in time the customer obtains control of the products. We recognize revenue for shipping and handling charges at the time the products are delivered to or picked up by the customer. We estimate product returns based on historical return rates. Using probability assessments, we estimate sales incentives expected to be paid over the term of the contract. The majority of our contracts have a single performance obligation and are short term in nature. Sales taxes and value added taxes in foreign jurisdictions that are collected from customers and remitted to governmental authorities are accounted for on a net basis and therefore are excluded from net sales. Revenues are attributable to countries based on the selling location from which the sale occurred.

All of the options in the tables above vest and become exercisable over a period of up to eight years. Generally, each option will terminate approximately ten years after the grant date.
The fair value of each share-based option is estimated on the date of grant using a Black-Scholes valuation method that uses the assumptions listed above. The risk-free interest rate is based on the U.S. Treasury rate over the expected life of the option at the time of grant. The expected life is the average length of time over which we expect the employee groups will exercise their options, which is based on historical experience with similar grants. The dividend yield is estimated over the expected life of the option based on our current dividend payout, historical dividends paid, and expected future cash dividends. Expected stock volatilities are based on the movement of our stock price over the most recent historical period equivalent to the expected life of the option.
Compensation expense equal to the grant date fair value is recognized for all of these awards over the vesting period. The stock-based compensation expense for the six-month periods ended June 30, 2020 and 2019 was $2.9 and $2.9, respectively. Unrecognized stock-based compensation expense related to outstanding unvested stock options as of June 30, 2020 was $15.1 and is expected to be recognized over a weighted average period of 4.17 years. Any future changes in estimated forfeitures will impact this amount.

(5) Income Taxes
Fastenal files income tax returns in the United States federal jurisdiction, all states, and various local and foreign jurisdictions. With limited exceptions, we are no longer subject to income tax examinations by taxing authorities for taxable years before 2016 in the case of United States federal examinations, and 2014 in the case of foreign, state, and local examinations. During the first six months of 2020, there were no material changes in unrecognized tax benefits.
During the second quarter of 2020, we deferred $111.5 in federal and state income and payroll tax payments as allowed under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (the 'CARES' Act), which was signed into law in March 2020 to help businesses navigate COVID-19 related challenges. The deferred federal and state income tax payments, which constitute $103.9 of the deferred value, will be made in the third quarter of 2020, while the deferred payroll taxes will be paid in the third quarter of 2021.
(6) Operating Leases
Certain operating leases for pick-up trucks contain residual value guarantee provisions which would generally become due at the expiration of the operating lease agreement if the fair value of the leased vehicles is less than the guaranteed residual value. The aggregate residual value guarantee related to these leases is approximately $93.0. We believe the likelihood of funding the guarantee obligation under any provision of the operating lease agreements is remote.

Unsecured Revolving Credit Facility
We have a $700.0 committed unsecured revolving credit facility ('Credit Facility'). The Credit Facility includes a committed letter of credit subfacility of $55.0. Any borrowings outstanding under the Credit Facility for which we have the ability and intent to pay using cash within the next twelve months, will be classified as a current liability. The Credit Facility contains certain financial and other covenants, and our right to borrow under the Credit Facility is conditioned upon, among other things, our compliance with these covenants. We are currently in compliance with these covenants.
Borrowings under the Credit Facility generally bear interest at a rate per annum equal to the London Interbank Offered Rate ('LIBOR') for interest periods of various lengths selected by us, plus 0.95%. We pay a commitment fee for the unused portion of the Credit Facility. This fee is either 0.10% or 0.125% per annum based on our usage of the Credit Facility.
Senior Unsecured Promissory Notes Payable
We have issued senior unsecured promissory notes under our master note agreement (the 'Master Note Agreement') in the aggregate principal amount of $405.0. Our aggregate borrowing capacity under the Master Note Agreement is $600.0; however, none of the institutional investors party to that agreement are committed to purchase notes thereunder. There is no amortization of these notes prior to their maturity date and interest is payable quarterly. The notes currently issued under our Master Note Agreement, including the maturity date and fixed interest rate per annum of each series of note, are contained in the table above.

ITEM 2 — MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS
The following is management's discussion and analysis of certain significant factors which have affected our financial position and operating results during the periods included in the accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements. Dollar amounts are stated in millions except for share and per share amounts and where otherwise noted. Share and per share information in this 10-Q has been adjusted to reflect the two-for-one stock split effective at the close of business on May 22, 2019. Throughout this document, percentage and dollar change calculations, which are based on non-rounded dollar values, may not be able to be recalculated using the dollar values in this document due to the rounding of those dollar values.
Business
Fastenal is a North American leader in the wholesale distribution of industrial and construction supplies. We distribute these supplies through a network of over 3,200 in-market locations. Most of our customers are in the manufacturing and non-residential construction markets. The manufacturing market includes producers who incorporate our products into final goods, called original equipment manufacturing (OEM), and/or utilize our supplies in the maintenance, repair, and operation (MRO) of their facilities and equipment. The non-residential construction market includes general, electrical, plumbing, sheet metal, and road contractors. Other users of our products include farmers, truckers, railroads, oil exploration, production, and refinement companies, mining companies, federal, state, and local governmental entities, schools, and certain retail trades. Geographically, our branches, Onsite locations, and customers are primarily located in North America (the United States, Canada, and Mexico), though our presence outside of North America continues to grow as well.
Our motto is Growth through Customer Service®. We are a growth-centric organization focused on identifying 'drivers' that allow us to get closer to our customers and gain market share in what we believe remains a fragmented industrial distribution market. Our growth drivers have evolved and changed, and can be expected to continue to evolve and change, over time.
Impact of COVID-19 on Our Business
Through the second quarter of 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic has had significant impacts on our business. We continued to operate with some modifications because, based on the various published standards to date, the work our employees are performing, particularly with respect to supplying products required by our safety business, is critical, essential, and life-sustaining. We took actions intended to protect our employees and our customers that adversely affected our results. First, we restricted public access to our branches, which has resulted in lower retail sales at those locations through the second quarter of 2020. Many of our locations have re-opened to the public, but a meaningful number remain restricted. Second, many of our customers either closed their locations or operated at significantly diminished capacity as a result of local and national actions taken, such as stay-at-home mandates, that reduced business activity and negatively impacted sales through the second quarter of 2020. Third, social actions taken to mitigate the effects of the pandemic produced significant demand for personal protection equipment ('PPE') and sanitation products, generating significant sales of such products not only to certain traditional customers but also to state and local government entities as well as front line responders. The favorable impact of this third variable on our results for the first six months of 2020 more than offset the adverse impact of the first two variables, which resulted in weaker sales through our branch and Onsite network to our traditional manufacturing and construction customers.
At the end of the second quarter of 2020, many of the markets in which we operate had begun to ease restrictions that were in place earlier in the period. This is having two effects. The first is to improve the outlook of the manufacturing and construction customers that support our traditional branch and Onsite business. The second is to moderate the level of demand for PPE and sanitation products that we experienced at the onset of the pandemic. However, as of the date of this filing, viral infections have begun to increase again resulting in resumption of restrictions in certain markets in which we operate. As a result, there remains significant uncertainty concerning the magnitude of the impact and duration of the COVID-19 pandemic. Factors deriving from the COVID-19 response that have or may negatively impact sales and gross margin in the future include, but are not limited to: limitations on the ability of our suppliers to manufacture, or procure from manufacturers, the products we sell, or to meet delivery requirements and commitments; limitations on the ability of our employees to perform their work due to illness caused by the pandemic or local, state, or federal orders requiring employees to remain at home; limitations on the ability of carriers to deliver our products to customers; limitations on the ability of our customers to conduct their business and purchase our products and services; and limitations on the ability of our customers to pay us on a timely basis.
With respect to liquidity, we continue to evaluate and limit costs and spending across our organization. This includes reduced headcount, a reduction in discretionary spending, and lower anticipated spending on capital investment projects. As of the end of the second quarter of 2020, we have substantially all of our $700M bank revolver available for use in the event that the need arises.
We will continue to actively monitor the situation and may take further actions that alter our business operations as may be required by federal, state, or local authorities or that we determine are in the best interests of our employees, customers, suppliers, and shareholders. While we are unable to determine or predict the nature, duration, or scope of the overall impact the COVID-19 pandemic will have on our business, results of operations, liquidity, or capital resources, we believe that it is

important to share where our company stands today, how our response to COVID-19 is progressing and how our operations and financial condition may change as the fight against COVID-19 progresses.
Executive Overview
Net sales increased $140.6, or 10.3%, in the second quarter of 2020 relative to the second quarter of 2019. Our gross profit as a percentage of net sales declined to 44.5% in the second quarter of 2020 from 46.9% in the second quarter of 2019. Our operating income, as a percentage of net sales, increased to 20.9% in the second quarter of 2020 from 20.1% in the second quarter of 2019. Our net earnings during the second quarter of 2020 were $238.9, an increase of 16.7% when compared to the second quarter of 2019. Our diluted net earnings per share were $0.42 during the second quarter of 2020 compared to $0.36 during the second quarter of 2019, an increase of 16.7%.
Our results in the second quarter of 2020 were significantly affected by the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic throughout the period. This had the effect of both drastically increasing our sales of PPE and sanitation products to help governments, health care providers, and critical infrastructure entities manage the pandemic, while also causing significant declines in demand among our traditional manufacturing and construction customers as the economy sharply slowed. In this period, we continued to focus on our growth drivers, though signings of Onsite customer locations (defined as dedicated sales and service provided from within, or in close proximity to, the customer's facility) and industrial vending devices slowed as our customer's energy shifted to short-term management over long-term planning. However, this had to be balanced against some additional priorities that are always important, but never more so than in the environment that existed in the second quarter of 2020. These included a focus on employee and customer safety, supporting customers that were most directly involved in pandemic mitigation, and using our liquidity to sustain a supply chain of critical products for our business, our customers, and society.
The table below summarizes our total employee headcount, our investments in in-market locations (defined as the sum of the total number of public branch locations and the total number of active Onsite locations), and industrial vending devices at the end of the periods presented and the percentage change compared to the end of the prior periods.
