1.GENERAL

 

The accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America for interim financial information and with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America for complete financial statements. In the opinion of management, all adjustments (all of which consisted of normal recurring accruals) considered necessary for a fair presentation have been included. Operating results for the three months ended March 31, 2019 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ending December 31, 2019.

 

The consolidated balance sheet at December 31, 2018 has been derived from the audited consolidated financial statements at that date but does not include all of the information and footnotes required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America for complete financial statements.

 

For further information, refer to the consolidated financial statements and footnotes thereto included in the annual report of Marine Products Corporation (“Marine Products,” the “Company” or “MPC”) on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2018.

2.RECENT ACCOUNTING STANDARDS

 

Recently Adopted Accounting Standards:

 

·Accounting Standards Update (ASU) 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842). The Company adopted ASC 842, Leases and all the related amendments (“new lease standard”) on January 1, 2019 by recognizing on its balance sheet, a right-of-use asset and lease liabilities each totaling approximately $200 thousand, for all of its leases with terms greater than 12 months. The Company adopted the standard on January 1, 2019 using the optional transition method with no cumulative-effect adjustment to the opening balance of retained earnings. The comparative information has not been restated and continues to be reported under the accounting standards that were in effect for those periods. The adoption of the standard did not have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated statements of operations and consolidated statements of cash flows. See “Leases” in the Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements for expanded disclosures.

(Unaudited)

 

·ASU No. 2017-08 —Receivables —Nonrefundable Fees and Other Costs (Subtopic 310-20): Premium Amortization on Purchased Callable Debt Securities. The amendments shorten the amortization period for certain callable debt securities held at a premium and requires the premium to be amortized to the earliest call date. The amendments are to be applied on a modified retrospective basis through a cumulative-effect adjustment directly to retained earnings as of the beginning of the period of adoption. The Company adopted the standard in the first quarter of 2019 and adoption did not have a material impact on its consolidated financial statements, since the Company changed its investment strategy in the first quarter of 2019 and no longer holds investments in callable debt securities.

 

·ASU No. 2018-02—Income Statement—Reporting Comprehensive Income (Topic 220)—Reclassification of Certain Tax Effects from Accumulated Other Comprehensive Income. The amendments provide an option to reclassify stranded tax effects within AOCI to retained earnings in each period in which the effect of the change in the U.S. federal corporate income tax rate in the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act is recorded. The Company adopted the standard in the first quarter of 2019 and elected to reclassify approximately $414 thousand of stranded tax effects related to its pension plan and unrealized gain on its available-for-sale debt securities from AOCI to retained earnings.

 

·ASU No. 2018-07 —Compensation —Stock Compensation (Topic 718) —Improvements to Nonemployee Share-Based Payment Accounting. The amendments expand the scope of ASU 718 to include share-based payments issued to nonemployees for goods or services, thereby substantially aligning the accounting for share-based payments to nonemployees and employees. The Company adopted these provisions in the first quarter of 2019 and the adoption did not have a material impact on its consolidated financial statements.

 

Recently Issued Accounting Standards Not Yet Adopted:

 

To be adopted in 2020 and later:

 

·ASU No. 2016-13, Financial Instruments —Credit Losses (Topic 326): Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments. The amendments affect loans, debt securities, trade receivables, net investments in leases, off-balance sheet credit exposures, reinsurance receivables, and any other financial assets not excluded from the scope that have the contractual right to receive cash. The amendments require the credit losses on available-for-sale debt securities and purchased financial assets with credit deterioration to be presented as an allowance rather than a write-down. It also allows recording of credit loss reversals in current period net income. The amendments are effective starting in the first quarter of 2020 with early application permitted. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of adopting these provisions on its consolidated financial statements.

·ASU No. 2017-04 —Intangibles —Goodwill and Other (Topic 350): Simplifying the Test for Goodwill Impairment. To simplify the subsequent measurement of goodwill, the amendments eliminate Step 2 from the goodwill impairment test. The annual, or interim, goodwill impairment test is performed by comparing the fair value of a reporting unit with its carrying amount. An impairment charge should be recognized for the amount by which the carrying amount exceeds the reporting unit’s fair value; however, the loss recognized should not exceed the total amount of goodwill allocated to that reporting unit. The amendments are effective for annual or any interim goodwill impairment tests beginning in 2020 applied on a prospective basis. Early adoption is permitted for interim or annual goodwill impairment tests performed on testing dates after January 1, 2017. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of adopting these provisions on its consolidated financial statements.

 

·ASU No. 2018-15 —Intangibles —Goodwill and Other —Internal-Use Software (Subtopic 350-40): Customer's Accounting for Implementation Costs Incurred in a Cloud Computing Arrangement That Is a Service Contract. The amendments reduce the complexity for the accounting for costs of implementing a cloud computing service arrangement and align the requirements for capitalizing implementation costs that are incurred in a hosting arrangement that is a service contract with the costs incurred to develop or obtain internal-use software. The provisions may be applied prospectively or retrospectively. The amendments are effective starting in the first quarter of 2020, with early adoption permitted. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of adopting these provisions on its consolidated financial statements.

 

3.NET SALES

 

Accounting Policy:

 

MPC’s contract revenues are generated principally from selling: (1) fiberglass motorized boats and accessories and (2) parts to independent dealers. Revenue is recognized when obligations under the terms of a contract with our customer are satisfied. Satisfaction of contract terms occur with the transfer of title of our boats, accessories, and parts to our dealers. Net sale is measured as the amount of consideration we expect to receive in exchange for transferring the goods to the dealer. The amount of consideration we expect to receive consists of the sales price adjusted for dealer incentives. The expected costs associated with our base warranties continue to be recognized as expense when the products are sold as they are deemed to be assurance-type warranties (see Note 7). Incidental promotional items that are immaterial in the context of the contract are recognized as expense. Fees charged to customers for shipping and handling are included in net sales in the accompanying consolidated statements of operations and the related costs incurred by the Company are included in cost of goods sold.

 

Nature of goods:

 

MPC’s performance obligations within its contracts consists of: (1) boats and accessories and (2) parts. The Company transfers control and recognizes revenue on the satisfaction of its performance obligations (point in time) as follows:

 

·Boats and accessories (domestic sales) – upon delivery and acceptance by the dealer

 

·Boats and accessories (international sales) – upon delivery to shipping port

 

·Parts – upon shipment/delivery to carrier

(Unaudited)

 

Payment terms:

 

For most domestic customers, MPC manufactures and delivers boats and accessories and parts ahead of payment - i.e., MPC has fulfilled its performance obligations prior to submitting an invoice to the dealer. MPC invoices the customer when the products are delivered and receives the related compensation, typically within seven to ten business days after invoicing. For some domestic customers and all international customers, MPC requires payment prior to transferring control of the goods. These amounts are classified as deferred revenue and recognized when control has transferred, which generally occurs within three months of receiving the payment.

 

When the Company enters into contracts with its customers, it generally expects there to be no significant timing difference between the date the goods have been delivered to the customer (satisfaction of the performance obligation) and the date cash consideration is received. Accordingly, there is no financing component to the Company’s arrangements with its customers.

 

Significant judgments:

 

Determining the transaction price

 

The transaction price for MPC’s boats and accessories is the invoice price adjusted for dealer incentives. The Company utilizes the expected value method to estimate the variable consideration related to dealer incentives. Key inputs and assumptions in determining variable consideration includes:

 

·Inputs: Current model year boat sales, total potential program incentive percentage, prior model year results of dealer incentive activity (i.e. incentive earned as a percentage of total incentive potential)

 

·Assumption: Current model year incentive activity will closely reflect prior model year actual results, adjusted as necessary for dealer purchasing trends or economic factors

 

Other:

 

Our contracts with dealers do not provide them with a right of return. Accordingly, we do not have any obligations recorded for returns or refunds.

4.EARNINGS PER SHARE

 

Basic and diluted earnings per share are computed by dividing net income by the weighted average number of shares outstanding during the respective periods. In addition, the Company has periodically issued share-based payment awards that contain non-forfeitable rights to dividends and are therefore considered participating securities. Restricted shares of common stock (participating securities) outstanding and a reconciliation of weighted average shares outstanding is as follows:

6.MARKETABLE SECURITIES

 

During the first quarter of 2019, the Company changed its investment strategy and as of March 31, 2019, no longer held investments in marketable securities. The Company held investments in marketable securities for a short duration in the first quarter of 2019. During 2018, Marine Products’ marketable securities were held with a large, well-capitalized financial institution. Management determined the appropriate classification of debt securities at the time of purchase and reevaluated such designations as of each balance sheet date. Debt securities were classified as available-for-sale because the Company did not have the intent to hold the securities to maturity. Available-for-sale debt securities were stated at their fair values, with the unrealized gains and losses, net of tax, reported as a separate component of stockholders’ equity. The cost of securities sold was based on the specific identification method. Realized gains and losses, declines in value judged to be other than temporary, interest and dividends on available-for-sale debt securities have been included in interest income.

 

The net realized gains (losses) and the reclassification of net realized gains (losses) from other comprehensive income are as follows:

7.WARRANTY COSTS AND OTHER CONTINGENCIES

 

Warranty Costs:

 

For our Chaparral and Robalo products, Marine Products provides a lifetime limited structural hull warranty and a transferable one-year limited warranty to the original owner. Chaparral also includes a five-year limited structural deck warranty. Warranties for additional items are provided for periods of one to five years and are not transferrable. Additionally, as it relates to the first subsequent owner, a five-year transferrable hull warranty and the remainder of the original one-year limited warranty on certain components are available. The five-year transferable hull warranty terminates five years after the date of the original retail purchase. Claim costs related to components are generally absorbed by the original component manufacturer.

 

The manufacturers of the engines, generators, and navigation electronics included on our boats provide and administer their own warranties for various lengths of time.

 

An analysis of the warranty accruals for the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018 is as follows:

 

(in thousands)  2019   2018 
Balance at beginning of period  $5,607   $5,373

The warranty accruals are reflected in accrued expenses and other liabilities on the consolidated balance sheets.

 

Repurchase Obligations:

 

The Company is a party to various agreements with first party lenders that provide floor plan financing to qualifying dealers whereby the Company guarantees varying amounts of debt on boats in dealer inventory. The Company’s obligation under these guarantees becomes effective in the case of a default under the financing arrangement between the dealer and the first party lender. The agreements provide for the return of repossessed boats to the Company in new and unused condition subject to normal wear and tear as defined, in exchange for the Company’s assumption of specified percentages of the debt obligation on those boats, up to certain contractually determined dollar limits by the lenders. The Company had no material repurchases of inventory under contractual agreements during the three months ended March 31, 2019 and March 31, 2018.

 

Management continues to monitor the risk of defaults and resulting repurchase obligations based in part on information provided by first-party floor plan lenders and will adjust the guarantee liability at the end of each reporting period based on information reasonably available at that time.

 

The Company currently has an agreement with one of the floor plan lenders whereby the contractual repurchase limit is 16 percent of the amount of the average net receivables financed by the floor plan lender for our dealers during the prior 12 month period, which was $15.4 million as of March 31, 2019. The Company has contractual repurchase agreements with additional lenders with an aggregate maximum repurchase obligation of approximately $4.1 million with various expiration and cancellation terms of less than one year, for an aggregate repurchase obligation with all floor plan financing institutions of approximately $19.5 million as of March 31, 2019.

 

8.BUSINESS SEGMENT INFORMATION

 

The Company has only one reportable segment, its powerboat manufacturing business; therefore, the majority of segment-related disclosures are not relevant to the Company. In addition, the Company’s results of operations and its financial condition are not significantly reliant upon any single customer or product model.

Finished goods   9,498    9,225 
Total inventories  $47,824   $46,770 

 

10.INCOME TAXES

 

The Company determines its periodic income tax provision based upon the current period income and the annual estimated tax rate for the Company adjusted for discrete items including tax credits and changes to prior year estimates. The estimated tax rate is revised, if necessary, as of the end of each successive interim period during the fiscal year to the Company's current annual estimated tax rate.

 

Income tax provision for the first quarter of 2019 reflects an effective tax rate of 16.3 percent, compared to an effective tax rate of 16.1 percent for the comparable period in the prior year. The slight increase in effective rate in the first quarter of 2019 is primarily due to investment gains as compared to investment losses in the same period in 2018. The effective rate in both periods includes the effect of beneficial permanent differences including discrete adjustments related to restricted stock dividends and liabilities related to state income taxes.

The Company did not make a contribution to this plan during the three months ended March 31, 2019.

 

The Company permits selected highly compensated employees to defer a portion of their compensation into a non-qualified Supplemental Executive Retirement Plan (“SERP”). The Company maintains certain securities in the SERP that have been classified as trading. The SERP assets are stated at fair value and totaled approximately $6,119,000 as of March 31, 2019 and $5,518,000 as of December 31, 2018. The SERP assets are reported in other non-current assets on the consolidated balance sheets and changes to the fair value of the assets are reported in selling, general and administrative expenses in the consolidated statements of operations.

 

Trading gains related to the SERP assets totaled approximately $590,000 during the three months ended March 31, 2019, compared to trading losses of approximately $92,000 during the three months ended March 31, 2018.

 

12.FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENTS

 

The various inputs used to measure assets at fair value establish a hierarchy that distinguishes between assumptions based on market data (observable inputs) and the Company’s assumptions (unobservable inputs). The hierarchy consists of three broad levels as follows:

 

1.Level 1 – Quoted market prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.
2.Level 2 – Quoted prices for similar instruments in active markets, quoted prices for identical or similar instruments in markets that are not active, and model-based valuation techniques for which all significant assumptions are observable in the market or can be corroborated by observable market data for substantially the full term of the assets or liabilities.
3.Level 3 – Unobservable inputs developed using the Company’s estimates and assumptions, which reflect those that market participants would use.

14.LEASES

 

The Company adopted ASU No. 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842) on January 1, 2019 and recognized leases with duration greater than 12 months on the balance sheet using the modified retrospective approach. Prior year financial statements have not been restated and therefore those amounts are not presented below. In addition, the Company elected the package of practical expedients permitted under the transition guidance within the new standard, which among other things, allowed for a carry-forward of the historical lease classification. For leases with terms greater than 12 months, the Company has recorded the related Right-Of-Use asset and liability at the present value of lease payments over the term. Renewal options have been factored into the determination of lease payments when appropriate. There are no residual value guarantees on the existing leases. The Company estimates its incremental borrowing rate, at lease commencement, to determine the present value of lease payments, since most of the Company’s leases do not provide an implicit rate of return.

 

The Company’s lease population consists primarily of office equipment. The Company does not have any finance leases. The Company determines at contract inception, if an arrangement is a lease or contains a lease based on whether the Company obtains the right to control the use of specifically identifiable property, plant and equipment for a period of time in exchange for consideration. The Company has elected not to separate non-lease components from lease components for its leases. Variable lease payments are recognized as expense when incurred.

 

As of March 31, 2019, the Company had no operating leases that had not yet commenced.

ITEM 2.MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

 

Marine Products Corporation, through our wholly owned subsidiaries Chaparral and Robalo, is a leading manufacturer of recreational fiberglass powerboats. Our sales and profits are generated by selling the products that we manufacture to a network of independent dealers who in turn sell the products to retail customers. These dealers are located throughout the continental United States and in several international markets. Many of these dealers finance their inventory through first-party floorplan lenders, who pay Marine Products generally within twelve days after delivery of the products to the dealers.

 

The discussion on business and financial strategies of the Company set forth under the heading “Overview” in the Company’s annual report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2018 is incorporated herein by reference. There have been no significant changes in the strategies since year-end.

 

In executing these strategies and attempting to optimize our financial returns, management closely monitors dealer orders and inventories, the production mix of various models, and indications of near term demand such as consumer confidence, interest rates, dealer orders placed at our annual dealer conferences, and retail attendance and orders at annual winter boat show exhibitions. We also consider trends related to certain key financial and other data, including our historical and forecasted financial results, market share, unit sales of our products, average selling price per boat, and gross profit margins, among others, as indicators of the success of our strategies. Our financial results are affected by consumer confidence — because pleasure boating is a discretionary expenditure, interest rates — because many retail customers finance the purchase of their boats, and other socioeconomic and environmental factors such as availability of leisure time, consumer preferences, demographics and the weather.

 

Our net sales were higher during the first quarter of 2019 compared to the first quarter of 2018 primarily due to an increase in average selling prices coupled with an increase in parts and accessory sales, partially offset by a decrease in unit sales.

 

Operating income decreased 1.8 percent during the first quarter of 2019 compared to the same period in the prior year primarily due to higher selling, general and administrative expenses, partially offset by higher gross profit. Selling, general and administrative expenses increased primarily due to expenses that increase with higher sales as well as higher research and development expenses which support new product development. Dealer inventory in units as of March 31, 2019 was higher than at the end of the fourth quarter of 2018 and slightly higher than at the end of the first quarter of 2018.

MARINE PRODUCTS CORPORATION AND SUBSIDIARIES

 

OUTLOOK

 

The discussion of the outlook for 2019 is incorporated herein by reference from the Company’s annual report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2018.

 

We believe that recreational boating retail demand in many segments of the industry will remain stable during 2019. Positive factors influencing recreational boat demand include strong consumer confidence and a robust U.S. employment market, as well as a favorable financing environment for boat dealers and consumers. These positive factors are offset by potential weakness in residential real estate markets, the negative impact of recent stock market fluctuations, and slightly higher interest rates. These weaknesses may have impacted attendance at the 2019 retail boat shows, which was slightly lower in 2019 than in 2018.

 

Although industry wide retail boat sales remain lower than they were prior to the 2008 financial crisis, retail boat sales have increased each year since 2012. Fluctuations in fuel prices can impact our industry, although they were relatively stable in 2018 and we do not believe that they have recently impacted sales. In general, the overall cost of boat ownership has increased, especially in the sterndrive recreational boat market segment, which comprises approximately 37 percent of the Company’s unit sales. The higher cost of boat ownership discourages consumers from purchasing recreational boats. For a number of years, Marine Products as well as other boat manufacturers have been improving their customer service capabilities, marketing strategies and sales promotions in order to attract more consumers to recreational boating as well as improve consumers’ boating experiences. The Company provides financial incentives to its dealers for receiving favorable customer satisfaction surveys. In addition, the recreational boating industry conducts a promotional program which involves advertising and consumer targeting efforts, as well as other activities designed to increase the potential consumer market for pleasure boats. Many manufacturers, including Marine Products, participate in this program. Management believes that these efforts have incrementally benefited the industry and Marine Products. As in past years, Marine Products enhanced its selection of models for the 2019 model year which began on July 1, 2018. We continue to emphasize the Surf Series line of Chaparral models, our larger Chaparral SSX models, and our larger Robalo models. In addition, we generated our first sales of Chaparral’s 300 OSX Bowriders. We believe that these boat models will expand our customer base, and leverage our strong dealer network and reputation for quality and styling. We plan to continue to develop and produce additional new products for subsequent model years. Marine Products expects to benefit from the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (“Tax Reform”) enacted during the fourth quarter of 2017. Marine Products estimates that its annual effective tax rate for 2019 will be in the low 20 percent range. Since Marine Products believes that it will generate continued positive financial results, the Company believes that it will benefit from this lower tax rate through increased earnings in 2019.

 

Our financial results for 2019 will depend on a number of factors, including interest rates, consumer confidence, the availability of credit to our dealers and consumers, fuel costs, the continued acceptance of our new products in the recreational boating market, our ability to compete in the competitive pleasure boating industry, the availability of labor and certain costs of our raw materials and key components.

THREE MONTHS ENDED MARCH 31, 2019 COMPARED TO THREE MONTHS ENDED MARCH 31, 2018

 

Net sales for the three months ended March 31, 2019 increased $5.5 million or 7.1 percent compared to the same period in 2018. The change in net sales during the quarter compared to the prior year was due primarily to a 14.8 percent increase in the average selling price per boat partially offset by a 6.8 percent decrease in the number of units sold. The increase in the average selling price per boat is primarily due to a model mix which included larger boats, such as our new 300 OSX Bowrider, as well as several of our larger Robalo models. The decrease in unit sales was primarily due to a decrease in sales of our smaller boats. In the first quarter of 2019, net sales outside of the United States accounted for 7.4 percent of net sales compared to 7.7 percent of net sales in the first quarter of 2018. International sales remain low primarily due to the recently imposed tariffs on boat imports by Canada, Mexico and the European Union, coupled with the strong U.S. dollar. Domestic net sales increased 7.5 percent to $76.9 million and international sales increased 2.1 percent to $6.1 million compared to the first quarter of the prior year.

 

Cost of goods sold for the three months ended March 31, 2019 was $64.4 million compared to $59.9 million for the comparable period in 2018, an increase of $4.5 million or 7.5 percent. Cost of goods sold increased slightly to 77.5 percent of net sales for the three months ended March 31, 2019 from 77.2 percent of net sales for the comparable period in 2018, primarily due to increased labor cost, partially offset by a favorable model mix.

Selling, general and administrative expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2019 were $9.8 million compared to $8.6 million for the comparable period in 2018, an increase of $1.2 million or 14.1 percent. This increase was primarily due to expenses that increase due to higher sales, as well as higher research and development expenses. Selling, general and administrative expenses as a percentage of net sales increased to 11.8 percent in the first quarter of 2019 from 11.1 percent in the first quarter of 2018 primarily due to the increased research and development expenses to support new product development.

 

Operating income for the three months ended March 31, 2019 decreased $0.2 million or 1.8 percent compared to the same period in 2018 primarily due to an increase in selling, general and administrative expenses partially offset by an increase in gross profit.

 

Interest income for the three months ended March 31, 2019 increased $24 or 72.7 percent compared to the prior year primarily due to a higher return.

 

Income tax provision for the first quarter of 2019 reflects an effective tax rate of 16.3 percent, compared to an effective tax rate of 16.1 percent for the comparable period in the prior year. The slight increase in effective rate in the first quarter of 2019 is primarily due to investment gains as compared to investment losses in the same period in 2018. The effective rate in both periods includes the effect of beneficial permanent differences including discrete adjustments related to restricted stock dividends and liabilities related to state income taxes.

 

LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES

 

Cash Flows

 

The Company’s cash and cash equivalents at March 31, 2019 were $18.3 million compared to $8.7 million at December 31, 2018. The increase in cash and cash equivalents is due to a change in investment strategy to no longer hold investments in marketable securities. The aggregate of short-term and long-term marketable securities was $7.7 million at December 31, 2018.

 

The following table sets forth the cash flows for the applicable periods:

 

   Three months ended March 31, 
(in thousands)  2019   2018 
         
Net cash provided by operating activities  $12,044   $7,510 
Net cash provided by investing activities   6,571    1,135 
Net cash used for financing activities  $(9,013)  $(6,400)

 

Cash provided by operating activities for the three months ended March 31, 2019 increased $4.5 million compared to the comparable period in 2018. This increase is primarily due to a favorable change in working capital, as described in more detail below, partially offset by a slight decrease in net income.

 

26

 

 

MARINE PRODUCTS CORPORATION AND SUBSIDIARIES

 

The major components of the net favorable change in working capital were as follows: a favorable change of $5.0 million in inventories primarily due to the timing of shipments of finished boats; a $1.0 million favorable change in other long-term liabilities; and a $1.3 million unfavorable change in accounts receivable, primarily due to timing of receipts.

 

Cash provided by investing activities for the three months ended March 31, 2019 was approximately $6.6 million compared to $1.1 million provided by investing activities for the same period in 2018. The increase in cash provided by investing activities is primarily due to increased net sales of marketable securities in the current period, partially offset by an increase in capital expenditures.

 

Cash used for financing activities for the three months ended March 31, 2019 increased approximately $2.6 million compared to the three months ended March 31, 2018 primarily due an increase in open market share repurchases in 2019 coupled with a 20 percent increase in the quarterly common stock cash dividend paid.

 

Financial Condition and Liquidity

 

The Company believes that the liquidity provided by existing cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities, its overall strong capitalization and cash generated by operations will provide sufficient capital to meet the Company’s requirements for at least the next twelve months. The Company’s decisions about the amount of cash to be used for investing and financing purposes are influenced by its capital position and the expected amount of cash to be provided by operations.

 

Cash Requirements

 

The Company currently expects that capital expenditures during 2019 will be approximately $2.7 million, of which $1.1 million has been spent through March 31, 2019.

 

The Company participates in a multiple employer Retirement Income Plan, sponsored by RPC, Inc. (“RPC”). The Company did not make a cash contribution to this plan in the first quarter of 2019, and does not expect to make any additional contributions for the remainder of 2019.

 

As of March 31, 2019, the Company has repurchased a total of 6,341,888 shares in the open market under the Company stock repurchase program, which began in 2002. There are 1,908,112 shares that remain available for repurchase under the current authorization. There were 263,805 shares repurchased under this program during the three months ended March 31, 2019.

 

OFF BALANCE SHEET ARRANGEMENTS

 

To assist dealers in obtaining financing for the purchase of its boats for inventory, the Company has entered into agreements with various first-party floor plan lenders whereby the Company guarantees varying amounts of debt for qualifying dealers on boats in inventory. The Company’s obligation under these guarantees becomes effective in the case of a default under the financing arrangement between the dealer and the first-party lender. The agreements provide for the return of all repossessed boats to the Company in a new and unused condition as defined, in exchange for the Company’s assumption of specified percentages of the debt obligation on those boats, up to certain contractually determined dollar limits which vary by lender. The Company had no material repurchases of inventory under contractual agreements during the three months ended March 31, 2019 and March 31, 2018.

 

27

 

 

MARINE PRODUCTS CORPORATION AND SUBSIDIARIES

 

Management continues to monitor the risk of defaults and resulting repurchase obligations based in part on information provided by the first-party floor plan lenders and will adjust the guarantee liability at the end of each reporting period based on information reasonably available at that time.

 

The Company currently has an agreement with one of the floor plan lenders whereby the contractual repurchase limit is 16 percent of the amount of the average net receivables financed by the floor plan lender for our dealers during the prior 12 month period, which was $15.4 million as of March 31, 2019. The Company has contractual repurchase agreements with additional lenders with an aggregate maximum repurchase obligation of approximately $19.5 million with various expiration and cancellation terms of less than one year, for an aggregate repurchase obligation with all financing institutions of approximately $4.1 million as of March 31, 2019.

 

RELATED PARTY TRANSACTIONS

 

In conjunction with its spin-off from RPC in 2001, the Company and RPC entered into various agreements that define their relationship after the spin-off. RPC charged the Company for its allocable share of administrative costs incurred for services rendered on behalf of Marine Products totaling approximately $219 thousand for the three months ended March 31, 2019 and approximately $241 thousand for the three months ended March 31, 2018.

 

CRITICAL ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

The discussion of Critical Accounting Policies is incorporated herein by reference from the Company’s annual report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2018. There have been no significant changes in the critical accounting policies since year-end.

 

IMPACT OF RECENT ACCOUNTING PRONOUNCEMENTS

 

See Note 2 of the Consolidated Financial Statements for a description of recent accounting pronouncements, including the expected dates of adoption and expected effects on results of operations and financial condition, if known.

 

SEASONALITY

 

Marine Products’ quarterly operating results are affected by weather and general economic conditions. Quarterly operating results for the second quarter have historically recorded the highest sales volume for the year because this corresponds with the highest retail sales volume period. The results for any quarter are not necessarily indicative of results to be expected in any future period.

INFLATION

 

The market prices of certain materials used in manufacturing the Company’s products, especially resins that are made with hydrocarbon feedstocks, copper and steel, have at certain periods been volatile. During 2018, the costs of several of these raw materials have increased slightly. In addition, the cost of certain components used in the manufacturing of the Company’s products has increased due to high demand and limited supplier capacity. As a result, it is possible the Company will incur higher materials purchase costs for the remainder of 2019. These higher prices of materials would increase the costs of manufacturing the Company’s products, and could negatively affect our profit margins, due to the competitive nature of the selling environment for recreational boats. Furthermore, the costs of these raw materials remain volatile, and may decrease in the future.

 

New boat buyers typically finance their purchases. Higher inflation typically results in higher interest rates that could translate into an increased cost of boat ownership. During 2018, inflation in the general economy began to increase, and general market interest rates have increased as well. If these trends continue during 2019, prospective buyers may choose to forego or delay their purchases or buy a less expensive boat in the event that interest rates rise or credit is not available to finance their boat purchases.

 

FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

 

Certain statements made in this report that are not historical facts are “forward-looking statements” under the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Such forward-looking statements may include, without limitation, our belief that recreational boating retail demand in many segments of the industry will remain stable in 2019; our belief that fluctuations in fuel prices have not recently impacted sales; our belief that the recreational boating industry’s promotional program has incrementally benefited the industry and Marine Products; our plans to continue to emphasize the Surf Series line of Chaparral boats, our larger SSX models and our larger Robalo models and our belief that these boat models will expand the our customer base and leverage our strong dealer network and reputation for quality and styling; our plans to continue to develop and additional new products for subsequent model years; our belief that the annual effective tax rate will be in the low 20 percent range; our belief that we will generate continued positive financial results and that we will benefit from the lower tax rate through increased earnings in 2019; our belief that its liquidity, capitalization and cash expected to be generated from operations, will provide sufficient capital to meet our requirements for at least the next twelve months; our expectations about capital expenditures during 2019; our expectation about contributions to its pension plan in 2019; and our belief that the outcome of any litigation, arising from time to time in the ordinary course of our business, will not have a material adverse effect on the financial position or results of operations of Marine Products.

The words “may,” “should,” “will,” “expect,” “believe,” “anticipate,” “intend,” “plan,” “seek,” “project,” “estimate,” and similar expressions used in this document that do not relate to historical facts are intended to identify forward-looking statements. Such statements are based on certain assumptions and analyses made by our management in light of its experience and its perception of historical trends, current conditions, expected future developments and other factors it believes to be appropriate. We caution you that such statements are only predictions and not guarantees of future performance and that actual results, developments and business decisions may differ from those envisioned by the forward-looking statements. Risk factors that could cause such future events not to occur as expected include the following: economic conditions, unavailability of credit and possible decreases in the level of consumer confidence impacting discretionary spending; business interruptions due to adverse weather conditions, increased interest rates, unanticipated changes in consumer demand and preferences, deterioration in the quality of Marine Products’ network of independent boat dealers or availability of financing of their inventory; our ability to insulate financial results against increasing commodity prices; the impact of rising gasoline prices and a weak housing market on consumer demand for our products; competition from other boat manufacturers and dealers; potential liabilities for personal injury or property damage claims relating to the use of our products; our ability to successfully identify suitable acquisition candidates or strategic partners, obtain financing on satisfactory terms, complete acquisitions or strategic alliances, integrate acquired operations into our existing operations, or expand into new markets; changes in various government laws and regulations, including environmental regulations and recent U.S. Government action concerning tariffs on goods; the possibility of retaliatory tariffs imposed on the export of our products to countries on which the U.S. has imposed tariffs; the higher prices of materials, such as hydrocarbon feedstocks, copper, and steel, would increase the costs of manufacturing our products, and could negatively affect our profit margins; higher inflation, which typically results in higher interest rates that could translate into an increased cost of boat ownership and prospective buyers may choose to forego or delay boat purchases; and the existence of certain anti-takeover provisions in our governance documents, which could make a tender offer, change in control or takeover attempt that is opposed by Marine Products’ Board of Directors more difficult or expensive. Additional discussion of factors that could cause actual results to differ from management’s projections, forecasts, estimates and expectations is contained in Marine Products Form 10-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission for the year ended December 31, 2018.

ITEM 4. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

 

Evaluation of disclosure controls and procedures – The Company maintains disclosure controls and procedures that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in its Exchange Act reports is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the Commission’s rules and forms, and that such information is accumulated and communicated to its management, including the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, as appropriate, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

 

As of the end of the period covered by this report, March 31, 2019 (the “Evaluation Date”), the Company carried out an evaluation, under the supervision and with the participation of its management, including the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, of the effectiveness of the design and operation of its disclosure controls and procedures. Based upon this evaluation, the Chief Executive Officer and the Chief Financial Officer concluded that the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures were effective at a reasonable assurance level as of the Evaluation Date.

 

Changes in internal control over financial reporting – Management’s evaluation of changes in internal control did not identify any changes in the Company’s internal control over financial reporting that occurred during the Company’s most recent fiscal quarter that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, the Company’s internal control over financial reporting.

PART II. OTHER INFORMATION

 

ITEM 1. LEGAL PROCEEDINGS

 

Marine Products is involved in litigation from time to time in the ordinary course of its business. Marine Products does not believe that the outcome of such litigation will have a material adverse effect on the financial position or results of operations of Marine Products.

 

Item 1A.RISK FACTORS

 

Trade restrictions could adversely affect international sales.

 

The current domestic and international political environment, including existing and potential changes to U.S. policies related to global trade and tariffs, have resulted in uncertainty surrounding the future state of the global economy. For example, retaliatory tariffs have recently been imposed on U.S. manufactured products by countries such as Canada and Mexico and countries in the European Union in response to U.S. tariffs on imported steel and aluminum from these countries. These and other potential tariffs could weaken international sales. We expect these and other tariffs to impact material costs in future quarters, which could require us to modify our current business practices and could have a material adverse effect on our financial statements in any particular reporting period.
