Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements (unaudited)

NOTE 1 Basis of Presentation
The accompanying unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements of Hubbell Incorporated (“Hubbell”, the “Company”, “registrant”, “we”, “our” or “us”, which references include its divisions and subsidiaries) have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) for interim financial information. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by United States of America (“U.S.”) GAAP for audited financial statements. In the opinion of management, all adjustments consisting only of normal recurring adjustments considered necessary for a fair statement of the results of the periods presented have been included. Operating results for the three months ended March 31, 2021 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the full year ending December 31, 2021.

Effective January 1, 2021 the Company consolidated the three business groups within its Electrical segment and renamed the segment as Hubbell Electrical Solutions ("Electrical Solutions"). The Electrical Solutions segment unites businesses with similar operating models, products, and go to market strategies under one operating banner and common leadership to drive synergies and long-term growth opportunities.

Also effective January 1, 2021, the Company moved its Hubbell Gas Connectors and Accessories business from the Electrical Solutions segment to the Utility Solutions segment to create synergies with the existing gas products already offered within the Utility Solutions segment and to better serve its utility customers. The information provided in the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements and the related notes reflects the impact of this change for all periods presented.
The balance sheet at December 31, 2020 has been derived from the audited financial statements at that date but does not include all of the information and footnotes required by U.S. GAAP for complete financial statements.

For further information, refer to the consolidated financial statements and footnotes thereto included in the Hubbell Incorporated Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020.

Impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic

During March 2020, a global pandemic was declared by the World Health Organization related to the rapidly growing outbreak of a novel strain of coronavirus (COVID-19). The pandemic has had, and may continue to have, a significant effect on global economic conditions. U.S. Federal, state, local, and foreign governments have reacted to the public health crisis with mitigation measures, creating significant uncertainties in the U.S. and global economies. The extent to which the coronavirus pandemic will continue to affect our business, operations and financial results will depend on numerous evolving factors that we may not be able to accurately predict and which may cause the actual results to differ from the estimates and assumptions we are required to make in the preparation of financial statements according to GAAP.

Recently Adopted Accounting Pronouncements

No accounting standards were adopted in the first quarter of 2021 that had a material impact on the Company's consolidated financial position, results of operations, or cash flows.

Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements

In March 2020, the FASB issued ASU No. 2020-04, "Reference Rate Reform (Topic 848): Facilitation of the Effects of Reference Rate Reform on Financial Reporting", which provides optional expedients and exceptions for applying generally accepted accounting principles to contracts, hedging relationships, and other transactions affected by reference rate reform if certain criteria are met. The amendments are effective for all entities beginning on March 12, 2020 through December 31, 2022. The Company may elect to apply the amendments prospectively through December 31, 2022. The Company has not adopted this ASU as of March 31, 2021. The Company is currently assessing the impact of adopting this standard on its financial statements and the timing of adoption.

NOTE 2 Revenue
The Company recognizes revenue when performance obligations identified under the terms of contracts with its customers are satisfied, which generally occurs, for products, upon the transfer of control in accordance with the contractual terms and conditions of the sale. The majority of the Company’s revenue associated with products is recognized at a point in time when the product is shipped to the customer, with a relatively small amount of transactions primarily in the Utility Solutions segment recognized upon delivery of the product at the destination. Revenue from service contracts and post-shipment performance obligations are approximately three percent of total annual consolidated net revenue and those service contracts and post-shipment obligations are primarily within the Utility Solutions segment. Revenue from service contracts and post-shipment performance obligations is recognized when or as those obligations are satisfied. The Company primarily offers assurance-type standard warranties that do not represent separate performance obligations and on occasion will separately offer and price extended warranties that are separate performance obligations for which the associated revenue is recognized over-time based on the extended warranty period. The Company records amounts billed to customers for reimbursement of shipping and handling costs within revenue. Shipping and handling costs associated with outbound freight after control over a product has transferred to a customer are accounted for as fulfillment costs and are included in cost of goods sold. Sales taxes and other usage-based taxes are excluded from revenue.

Within the Electrical Solutions segment, certain businesses require a portion of the transaction price to be paid in advance of transfer of control. Advance payments are not considered a significant financing component as they are received less than one year before the related performance obligations are satisfied. In addition, in the Utility Solutions segment, certain businesses offer annual maintenance service contracts that require payment at the beginning of the contract period. These payments are treated as a contract liability and are classified in Other accrued liabilities in the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets. Once control transfers to the customer and the Company meets the revenue recognition criteria, the deferred revenue is recognized in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income. The deferred revenue relating to the annual maintenance service contracts is recognized in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income on a straight-line basis over the expected term of the contract.

The following table presents disaggregated revenue by business group. Prior period amounts have been reclassified to conform to our organizational changes as described in Note 1 - Basis of Presentation:

Contract Balances

Our contract liabilities consist of advance payments for products as well as deferred revenue on service obligations and extended warranties. The current portion of deferred revenue is included in Other accrued liabilities and the non-current portion of deferred revenue is included in Other non-current liabilities in the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets.

Contract liabilities were $22.2 million as of March 31, 2021 compared to $30.9 million as of December 31, 2020. The $8.7 million decrease in our contract liabilities balance was primarily due to the recognition of $16.2 million in revenue related to amounts that were recorded in contract liabilities at January 1, 2021 partially offset by a $7.5 million net increase in current year deferrals primarily due to timing of advance payments on certain orders. The Company has an immaterial amount of contract assets relating to performance obligations satisfied prior to payment that is recorded in Other long-term assets in the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets. Impairment losses recognized on our receivables and contract assets were immaterial for the three months ended March 31, 2021.

Unsatisfied Performance Obligations

As of March 31, 2021, the Company had approximately $380 million of unsatisfied performance obligations for contracts with an original expected length of greater than one year, primarily relating to long-term contracts of the Utility Solutions segment to deliver and install meters, metering communications and grid monitoring sensor technology. The Company expects that a majority of the unsatisfied performance obligations will be completed and recognized over the next three years.

NOTE 3 Segment Information

The Company's reporting segments consist of the Electrical Solutions segment and the Utility Solutions segment. Effective January 1, 2021, the Company moved its Hubbell Gas Connectors and Accessories business, from the Electrical Solutions segment to the Utility Solutions segment, consolidated the former three business groups within its Electrical segment and renamed the segment as Hubbell Electrical Solutions ("Electrical Solutions"). The Hubbell Gas Connectors and Accessories business has been moved to Utility Solutions to create synergies with the existing gas products already offered within the Utility Solutions segment and to better serve its utility customers. Comparable prior period segment results have been re-cast to reflect this change. The consolidation of business groups within the Electrical Solutions segment unites businesses with similar operating models, products, and go to market strategies under one operating banner and common leadership to drive synergies and long-term growth opportunities.

The Electrical Solutions segment comprises businesses that sell stock and custom products including standard and special application wiring device products, rough-in electrical products, connector and grounding products, lighting fixtures and controls, and other electrical equipment. The products are typically used in and around industrial, commercial and institutional facilities by electrical contractors, maintenance personnel, electricians, utilities, and telecommunications companies. In addition, certain of our businesses design and manufacture industrial controls and communication systems used in the non-residential and industrial markets. Many of these products are designed such that they can also be used in harsh and hazardous locations where a potential for fire and explosion exists due to the presence of flammable gasses and vapors. Harsh and hazardous products are primarily used in the oil and gas (onshore and offshore) and mining industries. There are also a variety of lighting fixtures, wiring devices and electrical products that have residential and utility applications, including residential products with Internet-of-Things ("IoT") enabled technologies. These products are primarily sold through electrical and industrial distributors, home centers, retail and hardware outlets, lighting showrooms and residential product-oriented internet sites. Special application products are primarily sold through wholesale distributors to contractors, industrial customers and OEMs.

The Utility Solutions segment consists of businesses that design and manufacture various distribution, transmission, substation and telecommunications products primarily used by the electric, water, gas, and telecommunication utility industries. These offerings include advanced metering infrastructure, meter and edge devices, software and infrastructure services, which are primarily sold to the electric, water, and gas utility industries, as well as components and assemblies for the natural gas distribution market. In addition, certain of these products are used in the civil construction, water utility, and transportation industries. Products are sold to distributors and directly to users such as utilities, telecommunication companies, industrial firms, construction and engineering firms.

Amortization expense associated with definite-lived intangible assets was $20.7 million and $19.1 million during the three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020, respectively. Future amortization expense associated with these intangible assets is estimated to be $59.4 million for the remainder of 2021, $73.9 million in 2022, $69.1 million in 2023, $64.2 million in 2024, $59.6 million in 2025, and $49.2 million in 2026. The Company amortizes intangible assets with definite lives using either an accelerated method that reflects the pattern in which economic benefits of the intangible assets are consumed and results in higher amortization in the earlier years of the assets useful life, or using a straight line method. Approximately 77% of the gross value of definite-lived intangible assets follow an accelerated amortization method.

The organizational changes described in Note 1 - Basis of Presentation resulted in a change in the Company's reporting units effective January 1, 2021. As a result of the change in reporting units, the Company performed an interim goodwill impairment assessment as of January 1, 2021.

The Company applied the "Step-zero" test to one of its five reporting units, which allows the Company to first assess qualitative factors to determine whether it is more likely than not that a reporting unit's fair value is greater than its carrying amount. Based on the qualitative assessment, the Company concluded that it was more likely than not that the fair value of this reporting unit substantially exceeded its carrying value and, therefore, further quantitative analysis was not required. For the other four reporting units, the Company elected to utilize the quantitative goodwill impairment testing process, as permitted in the accounting guidance, by comparing the estimated fair value of the reporting units to their carrying values. If the estimated fair value of a reporting unit exceeds its carrying value, no impairment exists.

Goodwill impairment testing requires judgment, including the identification of reporting units, assigning assets and liabilities to reporting units and determining the fair value of each reporting unit. Significant judgment is required to estimate the fair value of reporting units including estimating future cash flows, determining appropriate discount rates and other assumptions, including assumptions about secular economic and market conditions, such as the potential continuing effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Company uses internal discounted cash flow models to estimate fair value. These cash flow estimates are derived from historical experience, third party end market data, and future long-term business plans and include assumptions of future sales growth, gross margin, operating margin, terminal growth rate, and the application of an appropriate discount rate. Significant changes in these estimates and assumptions could affect the determination of fair value and/or goodwill impairment for each reporting unit. The Company believes that its estimated aggregate fair value of its reporting units is reasonable when compared to the Company's market capitalization on the valuation date.

As of January 1, 2021, the impairment testing resulted in implied fair values for each reporting unit that significantly exceeded such reporting unit's carrying value, including goodwill. The Company did not have any reporting units at risk of failing the quantitative impairment test as the excess of the implied fair value significantly exceeded the carrying value of each of the reporting units. Additionally, the Company did not have any reporting units with zero or negative carrying amounts.

NOTE 12 Guarantees

The Company records a liability equal to the fair value of guarantees in accordance with the accounting guidance for guarantees. When it is probable that a liability has been incurred and the amount can be reasonably estimated, the Company accrues for costs associated with guarantees. The most likely costs to be incurred are accrued based on an evaluation of currently available facts and, where no amount within a range of estimates is more likely, the minimum is accrued. As of March 31, 2021 and December 31, 2020, the fair value and maximum potential payment related to the Company’s guarantees were not material.
The Company offers product warranties that cover defects on most of its products. These warranties primarily apply to products that are properly installed, maintained and used for their intended purpose. The Company accrues estimated warranty costs at the time of sale. Estimated warranty expenses, recorded in cost of goods sold, are based upon historical information such as past experience, product failure rates, or the estimated number of units to be repaired or replaced. Adjustments are made to the product warranty accrual as claims are incurred, additional information becomes known, or as historical experience indicates.
Changes in the accrual for product warranties during the three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020 are set forth below (in millions):
$80.5 $82.1

NOTE 13 Fair Value Measurement
Financial Instruments

Financial instruments which potentially subject the Company to significant concentrations of credit loss risk consist of trade receivables, cash equivalents and investments. The Company grants credit terms in the normal course of business to its customers. Due to the diversity of its product lines, the Company has an extensive customer base including electrical distributors and wholesalers, electric utilities, equipment manufacturers, electrical contractors, telecommunication companies and retail and hardware outlets. As part of its ongoing procedures, the Company monitors the credit worthiness of its customers. Bad debt write-offs have historically been minimal. The Company places its cash and cash equivalents with financial institutions and limits the amount of exposure in any one institution.
At March 31, 2021 our accounts receivable balance was $703.1 million, net of allowances of $11.7 million. During the three months ended March 31, 2021 our allowances decreased approximately $0.8 million. The decrease is primarily the result of the improvement in general economic conditions.
At March 31, 2021 and December 31, 2020, the Company had $56.5 million and $57.7 million, respectively, of available-for-sale municipal debt securities. These investments had an amortized cost of $55.5 million and $56.4 million, respectively. No allowance for credit losses related to our available-for-sale debt securities was recorded for the three months ended March 31, 2021. As of March 31, 2021 and December 31, 2020 the unrealized losses attributable to our available-for-sale debt securities was $0.1 million. The fair value of available-for-sale debt securities with unrealized losses was $8.8 million at March 31, 2021 and $6.1 million at December 31, 2020.

The Company also had trading securities of $23.3 million at March 31, 2021 and $22.7 million at December 31, 2020 that are carried on the balance sheet at fair value. Unrealized gains and losses associated with available-for-sale debt securities are reflected in Accumulated other comprehensive loss, net of tax, while unrealized gains and losses associated with trading securities are reflected in the results of operations.

Fair value measurements

Fair value is defined as the amount that would be received for selling an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. The FASB fair value measurement guidance established a fair value hierarchy that prioritizes the inputs used to measure fair value. The three broad levels of the fair value hierarchy are as follows:
Level 1 – Quoted prices (unadjusted) in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.
Level 2 – Quoted prices for similar assets and liabilities in active markets or inputs that are observable for the asset or liability, either directly or indirectly.
Level 3 – Unobservable inputs for which little or no market data exists, therefore requiring a company to develop its own assumptions.
