Note 1. Description of Company and Summary of Significant Accounting Policies
Nature of Business – JELD-WEN Holding, Inc., along with its subsidiaries, is a vertically integrated global manufacturer and distributor of windows, doors, and other building products that derives substantially all of its revenues from the sale of its door and window products. Unless otherwise specified or the context otherwise requires, all references in these notes to “JELD-WEN,” “we,” “us,” “our,” or the “Company” are to JELD-WEN Holding, Inc. and its subsidiaries.
We have facilities located in the U.S., Canada, Europe, Australia, Asia, and Mexico. Our products are marketed primarily under the JELD-WEN brand name in the U.S. and Canada and under JELD-WEN and a variety of acquired brand names in Europe, Australia, and Asia.
Our revenues are affected by the level of new housing starts and remodeling activity in each of our markets. Our sales typically follow seasonal new construction and repair and remodeling industry patterns. The peak season for home construction and remodeling in many of our markets generally corresponds with the second and third calendar quarters, and therefore, sales volume is typically higher during those quarters. Our first and fourth quarter sales volumes are generally lower due to reduced repair and remodeling activity and reduced activity in the building and construction industry as a result of colder and more inclement weather in certain areas of our geographic end markets.
Basis of Presentation – The accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements as of March 27, 2021 and for the three months ended March 27, 2021 and March 28, 2020, respectively, have been prepared in accordance with GAAP for interim financial information and pursuant to the rules and regulations of the SEC. In the opinion of management, the unaudited consolidated financial statements have been prepared on the same basis as the audited financial statements and include all adjustments, consisting only of normal recurring adjustments, necessary for the fair statement of the Company’s financial position for the periods presented. The results for the three months ended March 27, 2021 are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the year ending December 31, 2021, or any other period. The accompanying consolidated balance sheet as of December 31, 2020 was derived from audited financial statements included in the Company’s Form 10-K. The accompanying consolidated financial statements do not include all of the information and footnotes required by GAAP for annual financial statements. Accordingly, they should be read in conjunction with the audited financial statements and notes thereto included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020.
All U.S. dollar and other currency amounts, except per share amounts, are presented in thousands unless otherwise noted.
Ownership – As of December 31, 2020, Onex owned approximately 33% of the outstanding shares of our Common Stock. On March 1, 2021, Onex exercised its rights under its Registration Rights Agreement and requested the registration for resale of 8,000,000 shares of our Common Stock in an underwritten public offering (the “Secondary Offering”), and as provided under the terms of the Registration Rights Agreement, we were responsible for all related fees and expenses except for the underwriters’ discounts and commissions, which were paid by Onex. The Secondary Offering was completed on March 3, 2021. After the Secondary Offering, Onex held approximately 25% of our outstanding shares of Common Stock. In addition, in connection with the Secondary Offering, the Company purchased from the underwriter 800,000 of the aggregate 8,000,000 shares of our Common Stock that were the subject of the Secondary Offering at a price per share of $28.61, which is the price at which the underwriter purchased the shares from Onex in the Secondary Offering.
Fiscal Year – We operate on a fiscal calendar year, and each interim quarter is comprised of two 4-week periods and one 5-week period, with each week ending on a Saturday. Our fiscal year always begins on January 1 and ends on December 31. As a result, our first and fourth quarters may have more or fewer days included than a traditional 91-day fiscal quarter.
Use of Estimates – The preparation of consolidated financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates, assumptions, and allocations that affect amounts reported in the consolidated financial statements and related notes. Significant items that are subject to such estimates and assumptions include, but are not limited to, long-lived assets including goodwill and other intangible assets, employee benefit obligations, income tax uncertainties, contingent assets and liabilities, provisions for bad debt, inventory, warranty liabilities, legal claims, valuation of derivatives, environmental remediation, and claims relating to self-insurance. Actual results could differ due to the uncertainty inherent in the nature of these estimates.
COVID-19 – The CARES Act in the U.S. and similar legislation in other jurisdictions includes measures that assist companies in responding to the COVID-19 pandemic. These measures consisted primarily of cash assistance to support employment levels and deferment of remittance of certain non-income tax expense payments. The most significant impact

was the CARES Act in the U.S., which included a provision that allows employers to defer the remittance of the employer portion of the social security tax. The deferred employment tax must be paid over two years, with half of the amount required to be paid by December 31, 2021 and the other half by December 31, 2022. For the year ended December 31, 2020, the Company deferred $20.9 million of the employer portion of social security tax. As of March 27, 2021 and December 31, 2020, $10.4 million is included in accrued payroll and benefits and the remaining is included in deferred credits and other liabilities and in the consolidated balance sheet. For our Europe and Australasia regions, the deferrals totaled approximately $5.6 million and $1.7 million, respectively, at March 27, 2021 and $11.5 million and $1.8 million, respectively at December 31, 2020. The impact of the CARES Act and similar legislation in prospective periods may differ from our estimates as of March 27, 2021 due to changes in interpretations and assumptions, guidance that may be issued, and actions we may take in respect to these measures. The CARES Act and similar legislation in other jurisdictions are highly detailed and we will continue to assess the impact that various provisions will have on our business.
Recently Adopted Accounting Standards – In December 2019, the FASB issued ASU No. 2019-12, Income Taxes (Topic 740): Simplifying the Accounting for Income Taxes, which removes certain exceptions to the general principles of ASC 740, including, but not limited to, accounting relating to intraperiod tax allocations, deferred tax liabilities related to outside basis differences, and year to date losses in interim periods. This guidance is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2020. We adopted this standard in the first quarter of 2021 and the adoption did not have an impact on our unaudited consolidated financial statements as of the date of adoption.
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 U.S. GAAP to contracts, hedging relationships, and other transactions affected by the discontinuation of LIBOR or by another reference rate expected to be discontinued. In January 2021, the FASB issued ASU No. 2021-01, Reference Rate Reform (Topic 848): Scope, to clarify the scope of ASU No. 2020-04. The amendments are effective for all entities as of March 12, 2020 through December 31, 2022. In May 2020, we elected the expedient within ASC 848 which allows us to assume that our hedged interest payments are probable of occurring regardless of any expected modifications in their terms related to reference rate return. In addition, ASC 848 allows for the option to change the method of assessing effectiveness upon a change in critical terms of the derivative or the hedged transactions and upon the end of relief under ASC 848. At this time, we have elected to continue the method of assessing effectiveness as documented in the original hedge documentation and apply the practical expedients related to probability to assume that the reference rate on the hypothetical derivative matches the reference rate on the hedging instrument. We plan to evaluate the remaining expedients for adoption, as applicable, when contracts are modified. Refer to Note 17 - Derivative Financial Instruments for additional disclosure information relating to our hedging activity.
We have considered the applicability and impact of all ASUs. We have assessed ASUs not listed above and have determined that they were either not applicable or were not expected to have a material impact on our financial statements.
Note 2. Accounts Receivable
We sell our manufactured products to a large number of customers, primarily in the residential housing construction and remodel sectors, broadly dispersed across many domestic and foreign geographic regions. We assess the credit risk relating to our accounts receivable based on quantitative and qualitative factors, primarily historical credit collections within each region where we have operations. We perform ongoing credit evaluations of our customers to minimize credit risk. We do not usually require collateral for accounts receivable, but will require advance payment, guarantees, a security interest in the products sold to a customer, and/or letters of credit in certain situations. Customer accounts receivable converted to notes receivable are collateralized by inventory or other collateral.
At March 27, 2021 and December 31, 2020, we had an allowance for doubtful accounts of $12.8 million and $12.9 million, respectively.

Through March 27, 2021, we have capitalized software costs of $80.5 million related to the application development stage of our global ERP system implementation, including $4.1 million during the three months ended March 27, 2021. In March 2020, we impaired $3.4 million of capitalized software within impairment and restructuring charges in the accompanying unaudited consolidated statements of operations due to delays in implementation of certain ERP modules and the uncertainty of its future. In the third quarter 2020, we reduced the estimated useful life of our initial ERP instance from 15 years to 10 years to align with our current plans for our future global ERP system. In the fourth quarter 2020, we placed in service and began amortizing our current global ERP instance over its estimated useful life of 10 years. As of March 27, 2021, we have placed $69.0 million in service and are amortizing the cost of our global ERP system over its estimated useful life.
Intangible assets are reviewed for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate the carrying amount of such assets may not be recoverable. Intangible assets that become fully amortized are removed from the accounts in the period that they become fully amortized. Amortization expense was recorded as follows:

Note 8. Warranty Liability
Warranty terms vary from one year to lifetime on certain window and door components. Warranties are normally limited to servicing or replacing defective components for the original customer. Product defects arising within six months of sale are classified as manufacturing defects and are not included in the current period expense below. Some warranties are transferable to subsequent owners and are either limited to 10 years from the date of manufacture or require pro-rata payments from the customer. A provision for estimated warranty costs is recorded at the time of sale based on historical experience and is periodically adjusted to reflect actual experience.

Summaries of our significant changes to outstanding debt agreements as of March 27, 2021 are as follows:
Senior Secured Notes and Senior Notes
In May 2020, we issued $250.0 million of Senior Secured Notes bearing interest at 6.25% and maturing in May 2025 in a private placement for resale to qualified institutional buyers pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act. The proceeds were net of fees and expenses associated with debt issuance, including an underwriting fee of 1.25%. Interest is payable semiannually, in arrears, each May and November through maturity, beginning November 2020.
In December 2017, we issued $800.0 million of unsecured Senior Notes in two tranches: $400.0 million bearing interest at 4.63% and maturing in December 2025, and $400.0 million bearing interest at 4.88% and maturing in December 2027 in a private placement for resale to qualified institutional buyers pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act.
Term Loans
U.S. Facility - In December 2017, along with the issuance of the Senior Notes, we re-priced and amended the facility, which resulted in a principal balance of $440.0 million. These re-priced term loans were offered at par and bear interest at the rate of LIBOR (subject to a floor of 0.00%) plus a margin of 1.75% to 2.00%, determined by our corporate credit

ratings. This amendment also modified other terms and provisions, including providing for additional covenant flexibility and additional capacity under the facility.
In February 2019, we purchased interest rate caps in order to effectively fix a 3.0% per annum ceiling on the LIBOR component of an aggregate $150.0 million of our term loans. The caps became effective March 29, 2019 and expire December 31, 2021.
In September 2019, we amended the Term Loan Facility to provide for an incremental aggregate principal amount of $125.0 million and used the proceeds primarily to repay $115.0 million of outstanding borrowings under the ABL Facility. The proceeds were net of the original issue discount of 0.5%, or $0.6 million, as well as $0.6 million in fees and expenses associated with the debt issuance. This amendment requires that approximately $1.4 million of the aggregate principal amount be repaid quarterly until the maturity date. There were no other changes to key terms and the facility maintains its original maturity date in December 2024. At March 27, 2021, the outstanding principal balance, net of original issue discount, was $549.5 million.
In May 2020, we entered into interest rate swap agreements with a weighted average fixed rate of 0.395% paid against one-month LIBOR floored at 0.00% with outstanding notional amounts aggregating to $370.0 million corresponding to that amount of the debt outstanding under our Term Loan Facility. The interest rate swap agreements are designated as cash flow hedges of a portion of the interest obligations on our Term Loan Facility borrowings and mature in December 2023. See Note 17-Derivative Financial Instruments for additional information on our derivative assets and liabilities.
Australia Facility - In June 2019, we reallocated AUD 5.0 million from the term loan commitment to the interchangeable commitment of the Australia Senior Secured Credit Facility. The amended AUD 50.0 million floating rate term loan facility bears interest at a base rate of BBSY plus a margin ranging from 1.00% to 1.10%, includes a line fee of 1.25% on the commitment amount, and matures in February 2023. This facility had an outstanding principal balance of AUD 50.0 million ($38.0 million) as of March 27, 2021.
Both the term loan and non-term loan portions of the Australia Senior Secured Credit Facility are secured by guarantees of JWA and its subsidiaries, fixed and floating charges on the assets of JWA group, and mortgages on certain real properties owned by the JWA group. The agreement requires that JWA maintain certain financial ratios, including a minimum consolidated interest coverage ratio and a maximum consolidated debt to EBITDA ratio. The agreement limits dividends and repayments of intercompany loans where the JWA group is the borrower and limits acquisitions without the bank’s consent.
Revolving Credit Facilities
ABL Facility - In December 2019, we amended the ABL facility, a $400 million asset-based loan revolving credit facility maturing in December 2022, which did not have a financial impact. This facility bears interest primarily at LIBOR (subject to a floor of 0.00%) plus a margin of 1.25% to 1.75%, determined by availability. Extensions of credit are limited by a borrowing base calculated based on specified percentages of the value of eligible accounts receivable and inventory, subject to certain reserves and other adjustments. We pay a fee of 0.25% on the unused portion of the commitments. The ABL Facility has a minimum fixed charge coverage ratio that we are obligated to comply with under certain circumstances. The ABL Facility has various non-financial covenants, including restrictions on liens, indebtedness, dividends, customary representations and warranties, and share repurchases, as well as customary events of defaults and remedies.
In March 2020, we drew $100.0 million under our ABL Facility as a precautionary measure to ensure funding of our seasonal working capital cash requirements given the significant impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on global financial markets and economies. In May 2020, we utilized a portion of the proceeds received from our issuance of the $250.0 million of Senior Secured Notes to repay the outstanding balance on our ABL Facility. In the fourth quarter of 2020, we began to include the accounts receivable and inventory balances of certain recently acquired U.S. businesses in determining our availability, which expanded our borrowing base. As of March 27, 2021, we had no outstanding borrowings, $39.1 million in letters of credit and $340.4 million available under the ABL Facility.
Australia Senior Secured Credit Facility - In June 2019, we amended the Australia Senior Secured Credit Facility, reallocating availability from the Australia Term Loan Facility and collapsing the floating rate revolving loan facility into an AUD 35.0 million interchangeable facility to be used for guarantees, asset financing, and loans of 12 months or less. In May 2020, we amended this facility to relax certain financial covenants and provide for a supplemental AUD 30.0 million floating rate revolving loan facility to be used for loans bearing interest at BBSY plus a margin of 1.10%, and a line fee of 0.90%, and maturing on June 30, 2021. The facility may be used only if and when the AUD 35.0 million interchangeable facility is fully utilized. As of March 27, 2021, we had AUD 30.0 million ($22.8 million) available under this facility. In addition, the AUD 35.0 million interchangeable facility was renewed with relaxed financial maintenance covenants to at least June 30, 2021 and its line fee increased to 0.70%, compared to a line fee of 0.50% under the previous amendment. The non-term loan portion of the Australia Senior Secured Credit Facility no longer has a set maturity date but is instead subject to an annual review. As of March 27, 2021, we had AUD 22.0 million ($16.7 million) available under this facility.

Back to top
At March 27, 2021, we had combined borrowing availability of $379.9 million under our revolving credit facilities.
Mortgage Notes – In December 2007, we entered into thirty-year mortgage notes secured by land and buildings with principal payments which began in 2018. At March 27, 2021, we had DKK 174.7 million ($27.7 million) outstanding under these notes.
Finance leases and other financing arrangements In addition to finance leases, we include insurance premium financing arrangements and loans secured by equipment in this category. At March 27, 2021, we had $106.1 million outstanding in this category, with maturities ranging from 2021 to 2028.
As of March 27, 2021, we were in compliance with the terms of all of our credit facilities and the indentures governing the Senior Notes and Senior Secured Notes.
Note 10. Income Taxes

The Company previously completed its accounting for the income tax effects of the Tax Act. We have considered ongoing developments released through the date hereof and determined that they have no material impact on our tax accounts for the three months ended March 27, 2021. Final guidance, once issued, may materially affect our conclusions regarding the net related effects of the Tax Act on our unaudited consolidated financial statements. Until then, management will continue to monitor and work with its tax advisors to interpret any guidance issued.
The effective income tax rate for continuing operations was 28.9% for the three months ended March 27, 2021 compared to 123.8% for the three months ended March 28, 2020. In accordance with ASC 740-270, we recorded tax expense of $10.4 million from operations in the three months ended March 27, 2021 compared to a tax expense of $1.2 million in the three months ended March 28, 2020, by applying an estimated annual effective tax rate to our year-to-date income for includable entities during the respective periods. Our estimated annual effective tax rate for both years includes the impact of the tax on GILTI. The application of the estimated annual effective tax rate in interim periods may result in a significant variation in the customary relationship between income tax expense and pretax accounting income due to the seasonality of our global business. Entities that are currently generating losses and for which there is a full valuation allowance are excluded from the worldwide effective tax rate calculation and are calculated separately. The estimated annual effective tax rate for the current year may be materially impacted by changes in management’s judgment regarding the realizability of deferred tax assets, including the ongoing financial and operational impacts on our business arising from COVID-19. To the extent that actual results and/or events differ from our predicted results, our estimated annual effective tax rate may be affected.
The impact of significant discrete items is separately recognized in the quarter in which they occur. The tax expense for discrete items included in the tax provision for continuing operations for the three months ended March 27, 2021 was $0.1 million compared to $0.8 million of tax expense for the three months ended March 28, 2020, respectively. The discrete amounts for the three months ended March 27, 2021 were comprised primarily of a tax expense of $0.3 million attributable to current period interest expense on uncertain tax positions, partially offset by a tax benefit of $0.2 million attributable to a windfall tax deduction on share-based compensation. The discrete amounts for the three months ended March 28, 2020 were similarly attributable to current period interest expense on uncertain tax positions.
Under ASC 740-10, we provide for uncertain tax positions and the related interest expense by adjusting unrecognized tax benefits and accrued interest accordingly. We recognize potential interest and penalties related to unrecognized tax benefits in income tax expense. We had unrecognized tax benefits without regard to accrued interest of $16.4 million and $17.0 million as of March 27, 2021 and December 31, 2020, respectively.
There are no changes to the Company’s indefinite reinvestment assertion on unremitted earnings, as outlined at December 31, 2020. However, with the continued uncertainty in the global economy due to the COVID-19 pandemic and impact on the Company’s business operations and liquidity, the Company may consider changes to this position in future periods as the Company’s outlook or operational needs change.

Note 11. Segment Information
We report our segment information in the same way management internally organizes the business in assessing performance and making decisions regarding allocation of resources in accordance with ASC 280-10- Segment Reporting. We determined that we have three reportable segments, organized and managed principally by geographic region. Our reportable segments are North America, Europe, and Australasia. We report all other business activities in Corporate and unallocated costs. Factors considered in determining the three reportable segments include the nature of business activities, the management structure accountable directly to the CODM, the discrete financial information available and the information regularly reviewed by the CODM. Management reviews net revenues and Adjusted EBITDA to evaluate segment performance and allocate resources. We define Adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss), adjusted for the following items: loss from discontinued operations, net of tax; equity earnings of non-consolidated entities; income tax (benefit) expense; depreciation and amortization; interest expense, net; impairment and restructuring charges; gain on previously held shares of equity investment; (gain) loss on sale of property and equipment; share-based compensation expense; non-cash foreign exchange transaction/translation (income) loss; other items; other non-cash items; and costs related to debt restructuring and debt refinancing.
