NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

(Unaudited)

 

 

1 Principles of Consolidation and Basis of Presentation

 

The interim consolidated financial statements included herein have been prepared by Rush Enterprises, Inc. and its subsidiaries (collectively referred to as the “Company”), without audit, pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”). All adjustments have been made to the accompanying interim consolidated financial statements, which, in the opinion of the Company’s management, are necessary for a fair presentation of its operating results. All adjustments are of a normal recurring nature. Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles have been condensed or omitted pursuant to such rules and regulations. It is recommended that these interim consolidated financial statements be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and the notes thereto included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021. Results of operations for interim periods are not necessarily indicative of results that may be expected for any other interim periods or the full fiscal year.

 

COVID-19 Risks and Uncertainties

 

While the COVID-19 pandemic may not be over, business conditions have improved significantly since the onset of the pandemic in the second quarter of 2020. However, our industry continues to be impacted by supply chain issues generally attributable to the COVID-19 pandemic that are negatively affecting new commercial vehicle production and the availability of aftermarket parts. The Company is unable to predict the impact that the COVID-19 pandemic will have on its future business and operating results due to numerous uncertainties, including the duration of the COVID-19 pandemic and its effect on global economic trends and the various supply chains serving the commercial vehicle industry.

 

 

2 Other Assets

 

Equity Method Investments and Call Option

 

On February 25, 2019, the Company acquired 50% of the equity interest in Rush Truck Centres of Canada Limited (“RTC Canada”), which acquired the operating assets of Tallman Group, the largest International Truck dealer in Canada. The Company was also granted a call option in the purchase agreement that provides the Company with the right to acquire the remaining 50% equity interest in RTC Canada until the close of business on February 25, 2024. The value of the Company’s call option was $3.6 million as of March 31, 2022, and is reported in Other Assets on the Consolidated Balance Sheet.

 

On April 25, 2019, the Company entered into a Guaranty Agreement (“Guaranty”) with Bank of Montreal (“BMO”), pursuant to which the Company agreed to guaranty up to CAD250 million (the “Guaranty Cap”) of certain credit facilities entered into by and between Tallman Truck Centre Limited (“TTCL”) and BMO. The Company owned a 50% equity interest in TTCL, which was the sole owner of RTC Canada. Later in 2019, RTC Canada and TTCL were amalgamated into RTC Canada. Interest, fees and expenses incurred by BMO to enforce its rights with respect to the guaranteed obligations and its rights against the Company under the Guaranty are not subject to the Guaranty Cap. In exchange for the Guaranty, RTC Canada is receiving a reduced rate of interest on its credit facilities with BMO. The Guaranty was valued at $5.3 million as of March 31, 2022 and $5.2 million as of December 31, 2021, and is included in the investment in RTC Canada. As of March 31, 2022, the Company’s investment in RTC Canada is $38.7 million. The Company’s equity income in RTC Canada is included in Other income on the Consolidated Statements of Income.

 

On January 3, 2022, a subsidiary of Cummins, Inc. acquired a 50% equity interest in Natural Gas Fuel Systems, LLC, which previously conducted business as Momentum Fuel Technologies, from the Company for $27.5 million. The $12.5 million gain realized on the transaction is included in Other income on the Consolidated Statements of Income and Comprehensive Income. The Company is accounting for the business as a joint venture and recognizes the investment using the equity method. As of March 31, 2022, the Company’s investment in Natural Gas Fuels Systems, LLC is $14.9 million. The Company’s equity income in Natural Gas Fuels Systems, LLC is included in Other income on the Consolidated Statements of Income.

 

 

 

3 Commitments and Contingencies

 

From time to time, the Company is involved in litigation arising out of its operations in the ordinary course of business. The Company maintains liability insurance, including product liability coverage, in amounts deemed adequate by management. However, an uninsured or partially insured claim, or claim for which indemnification is not available, could have a material adverse effect on the Company’s financial condition or results of operations. As of March 31, 2022, the Company believes that there are no pending claims or litigation, individually or in the aggregate, that are reasonably likely to have a material adverse effect on its financial position or results of operations. However, due to the inherent uncertainty of litigation, there can be no assurance that the resolution of any particular claim or proceeding would not have a material adverse effect on the Company’s financial condition or results of operations for the fiscal period in which such resolution occurred.

5 Stock Options and Restricted Stock Awards

 

Valuation and Expense Information

 

The Company accounts for stock-based compensation in accordance with ASC 718-10, Compensation Stock Compensation, which requires the measurement and recognition of compensation expense for all share-based payment awards made to the Company’s employees and directors, including employee stock options, restricted stock unit awards, restricted stock awards and employee stock purchases related to the Employee Stock Purchase Plan, based on estimated fair values.

 

Stock-based compensation expense, calculated using the Black-Scholes option-pricing model for employee stock options and included in selling, general and administrative expense, was $13.8 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022, and $11.5 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021.

 

As of March 31, 2022, the Company had $14.3 million of unrecognized compensation cost related to non-vested employee stock options to be recognized over a weighted-average period of 2.6 years and $17.0 million of unrecognized compensation cost related to non-vested restricted stock awards to be recognized over a weighted-average period of 1.7 years.

 

 

6 Financial Instruments and Fair Value         

 

The Company measures certain financial assets and liabilities at fair value on a recurring basis. Financial instruments consist primarily of cash, accounts receivable, accounts payable and floor plan notes payable. The carrying values of the Company’s financial instruments approximate fair value due either to their short-term nature or existence of variable interest rates, which approximate market rates. Certain methods and assumptions were used by the Company in estimating the fair value of financial instruments as of March 31, 2022, and December 31, 2021. The carrying value of current assets and current liabilities approximates the fair value due to the short maturity of these items.

 

8

 

The fair value of the Company’s long-term debt is based on secondary market indicators. Because the Company’s debt is not quoted, estimates are based on each obligation’s characteristics, including remaining maturities, interest rate, credit rating, collateral and liquidity. Accordingly, the Company concluded that the valuation measurement inputs of its long-term debt represent, at its lowest level, current market interest rates available to the Company for similar debt and the Company’s current credit standing. The carrying amount of such debt approximates fair value.

 

 

7 Segment Information

 

The Company currently has one reportable business segment - the Truck Segment. The Truck Segment includes the Company’s operation of a nationwide network of commercial vehicle dealerships that provide an integrated one-stop source for the commercial vehicle needs of its customers, including retail sales of new and used commercial vehicles; aftermarket parts, service and collision center facilities; and financial services, including the financing of new and used commercial vehicle purchases, insurance products and truck leasing and rentals. The commercial vehicle dealerships are deemed a single reporting unit because they have similar economic characteristics. The Company’s chief operating decision maker considers the entire Truck Segment, not individual dealerships or departments within its dealerships, when making decisions about resources to be allocated to the segment and assessing its performance.

 

The Company also has revenues attributable to three other operating segments. These segments include a retail tire company, an insurance agency and a guest ranch operation and are included in the All Other column below. None of these segments has ever met any of the quantitative thresholds for determining reportable segments.

 

The accounting policies of the segments are the same as those described in the summary of significant accounting policies. The Company evaluates performance based on income before income taxes, not including extraordinary items.

 

The following table contains summarized information about reportable segment revenues, segment income or loss from continuing operations and segment assets for the periods ended March 31, 2022 and 2021 (in thousands):

8 Income Taxes

 

The Company had unrecognized income tax benefits totaling $4.3 million as a component of accrued liabilities as of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, the total of which, if recognized, would impact the Company’s effective tax rate. An unfavorable settlement may require a charge to income tax expense and a favorable resolution would be recognized as a reduction to income tax expense. The Company recognizes interest accrued related to unrecognized tax benefits in income tax expense. The Company had approximately $279,000 accrued for the payment of interest as of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021. No amounts were accrued for penalties.

 

The Company does not anticipate a significant change in the amount of unrecognized tax benefits in the next 12 months. As of March 31, 2022, the tax years ended December 31, 2018 through 2021 remained subject to audit by federal tax authorities, and the tax years ended December 31, 2017 through 2021, remained subject to audit by state tax authorities.

 

 

9 Revenue

 

The Company’s revenues are primarily generated from the sale of finished products to customers. Those sales predominantly contain a single delivery element and revenue from such sales is recognized when the customer obtains control, which is typically when the finished product is delivered to the customer. The Company’s material revenue streams have been identified as the following: the sale of new and used commercial vehicles, arrangement of associated commercial vehicle financing and insurance contracts, the performance of commercial vehicle repair services and the sale of commercial vehicle parts. Taxes collected from customers relating to product sales and remitted to governmental authorities are excluded from revenues.

The following table summarizes the Company’s disaggregated revenue by revenue source, excluding lease and rental revenue, for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021 (in thousands):

 

   

Three Months

Ended

March 31, 2022

   

Three Months

Ended

March 31, 2021

 

Commercial vehicle sales revenue

  $ 935,719     $ 747,719  

Parts revenue

    330,743       240,436  

Commercial vehicle repair service revenue

    212,520       175,301  

Finance revenue

    4,489       3,904  

Insurance revenue

    3,036       2,561  

Other revenue

    5,360       3,658  

Total

  $ 1,491,867     $ 1,173,579  

 

All of the Company's performance obligations and associated revenues are generally transferred to customers at a point in time. The Company did not have any material contract assets or contract liabilities on the balance sheet as of March 31, 2022. Revenues related to commercial vehicle sales, parts sales, commercial vehicle repair service, finance and the majority of other revenues are related to the Truck Segment.

 

 

10 Leases

 

Lease of Vehicles as Lessor

 

The Company primarily leases commercial vehicles that the Company owns to customers primarily over periods of one to ten years. The Company does not separate lease and nonlease components. Nonlease components typically consist of maintenance and licensing for the commercial vehicle. The variable nonlease components are generally based on mileage. Some leases contain an option for the lessee to purchase the commercial vehicle at the end of the lease term.

 

The Company’s policy is to depreciate its lease and rental fleet using a straight-line method over each customer’s contractual lease term. The lease unit is depreciated to a residual value that approximates fair value at the expiration of the lease term. This policy results in the Company realizing reasonable gross margins while the unit is in service and a corresponding gain or loss on sale when the unit is sold at the end of the lease term.

 

Sales-type leases are recognized by the Company as lease receivables. The lessee obtains control of the underlying asset and the Company recognizes sales revenue upon lease commencement. The receivable for sales-type leases as of March 31, 2022 was $5.6 million, compared to $5.4 million as of December 31, 2021, and is reflected in Other Assets on the Consolidated Balance Sheet.

12 Accounts Receivable and Allowance for Credit Losses

 

The Company establishes an allowance for credit losses to present the net amount of accounts receivable expected to be collected. Under Accounting Standards Update No. 2016-13, Financial InstrumentsCredit Losses (Topic 326): Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments, the Company is required to remeasure expected credit losses for financial instruments held on the reporting date based on historical experience, current conditions and reasonable forecasts.

 

Accounts receivable consists primarily of commercial vehicle sales receivables, manufacturers’ receivables, leasing and parts and service receivables and other trade receivables. The Company maintains an allowance for credit losses based on the probability of default, its historical rate of losses, aging and current economic conditions. The Company writes off account balances when it has exhausted reasonable collection efforts and determined that the likelihood of collection is remote. These write-offs are charged against the allowance for credit losses.

13 Acquisition

 

On December 13, 2021, the Company completed the acquisition of certain of the assets of the Summit Truck Group, LLC and certain of its subsidiaries and affiliates (collectively, “Summit”) which included full-service commercial vehicle dealerships and Idealease franchises in Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri, Tennessee and Texas. The acquisition included Summit’s dealerships representing International, IC Bus, Idealease, Isuzu and other commercial vehicle manufacturers for a purchase price of approximately $205.3 million, excluding the real property associated with the transaction. The Company financed approximately $102.0 million of the purchase price under its floor plan and lease and rental truck financing arrangements and the remainder of the purchase price was paid in cash. In addition, the Company purchased certain real property owned by Summit for a purchase price of approximately $57.0 million, which was paid in cash.

 

The purchase price allocation has not yet been finalized for the Summit acquisition. The Company is currently working with Summit to obtain additional information related to property and equipment, inventory and valuation of intangible assets. Management has recorded the purchase price allocations based upon currently available information about Summit.

The COVID-19 Pandemic and Its Impact on Our Business

 

While the COVID-19 pandemic may not be over, business conditions have improved significantly since the onset of the pandemic in the second quarter of 2020. However, our industry continues to be impacted by supply chain issues generally believed to be attributable to the COVID-19 pandemic that are negatively affecting new commercial vehicle production and the availability of aftermarket parts.

 

Outlook                   

 

A.C.T. Research Co., LLC (“A. C.T. Research”), a commercial vehicle industry data and forecasting service provider, currently forecasts new U.S. Class 8 retail truck sales to be 244,500 units in 2022, which would represent a 7.5% increase compared to 2021. We expect our market share of new Class 8 truck sales to range between 5.8% and 6.1% in 2022. This market share percentage would result in the sale of approximately 14,300 to 15,000 new Class 8 trucks in 2022, based on A.C.T. Research’s current U.S. retail sales estimate of 244,500 units.

 

With respect to new U.S. Class 4-7 retail commercial vehicle sales, A.C.T. Research currently forecasts sales to be 263,200 units in 2022, which would represent a 5.6% increase compared to 2021.  We expect our market share of new Class 4 through 7 commercial vehicle sales to range between 4.0% and 4.2% in 2022. This market share percentage would result in the sale of approximately 10,500 to 11,000 new Class 4 through 7 commercial vehicles in 2022, based on A.C.T. Research’s current U.S. retail sales estimates of 263,200 units.

 

We expect to sell approximately 1,700 light-duty vehicles and approximately 7,800 to 8,200 used commercial vehicles in 2022. We expect lease and rental revenue to increase 25% to 30% during 2022, compared to 2021.

 

We believe our Aftermarket Products and Services revenues will increase 20% to 25% in 2022, compared to 2021.

 

The above projections for new commercial vehicle sales will depend on our ability to obtain commercial vehicles from the manufacturers we represent based on allocations from the manufacturers and supply chain issues affecting manufacturers. In addition, we are beginning to see elevated fuel prices and lower spot market rates and believe inflation and rising interest rates may begin to negatively impact consumer spending and capital expenditures across a variety of industries we support. We are monitoring these and other economic factors that may impact industry demand moving forward. However, with the ongoing integration of our strategic initiatives into our newly acquired dealership locations, and our continued disciplined approach to expense management, we believe our financial results will continue to be strong in 2022.

 

In addition, all of the above projections for new commercial vehicle sales, lease and rental revenues and Aftermarket Products and Services revenues include the dealership and Idealease locations that we acquired on December 13, 2021, when we completed the acquisition of certain of the assets of the of Summit Truck Group, LLC and certain of its subsidiaries and affiliates (collectively, “Summit”), which included full-service commercial vehicle dealerships and Idealease franchises in Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri, Tennessee and Texas (the “Summit Acquisition”). The Summit Acquisition included Summit’s dealerships representing International, IC Bus, Idealease, Isuzu and other commercial vehicle manufacturers.

 

Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates

 

Our discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations are based on our consolidated financial statements, which have been prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles. The preparation of these consolidated financial statements requires us to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities at the date of the consolidated financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. There can be no assurance that actual results will not differ from those estimates. We believe the following accounting policies affect our more significant judgments and estimates used in the preparation of our consolidated financial statements.

 

Inventories

 

Inventories are stated at the lower of cost or net realizable value. Cost is determined by specific identification of new and used commercial vehicle inventory and by the first-in, first-out method for tires, parts and accessories. As the market value of our inventory typically declines over time, reserves are established based on historical loss experience and market trends. These reserves are charged to cost of sales and reduce the carrying value of our inventory on hand. An allowance is provided when it is anticipated that cost will exceed net realizable value less a reasonable profit margin.

 

 

Purchase Price Allocation, Intangible Assets and Goodwill

 

Purchase price allocation for business combinations and asset acquisitions requires the use of accounting estimates and judgments to allocate the purchase price to the identifiable tangible and intangible assets acquired and liabilities assumed based on their respective fair values. We determine whether substantially all the fair value of the gross assets acquired is concentrated in a single identifiable asset or a group of similar identifiable assets. If so, the single asset or group of assets, as applicable, is not a business. If not, we determine whether the single asset or group of assets, as applicable, meets the definition of a business.

 

In connection with our business combinations, we recorded certain intangible assets, including franchise rights. We periodically review the estimated useful lives and fair values of our identifiable intangible assets, taking into consideration any events or circumstances that might result in a diminished fair value or revised useful life.

 

The excess purchase price over the fair value of assets acquired is recorded as goodwill. We test goodwill for impairment annually in the fourth quarter, or whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate an impairment may have occurred. Because we operate a single reporting unit, the Truck Segment, the impairment test is performed at that level by comparing the estimated fair value of the reporting unit to the carrying value of the reporting unit. We estimate the fair value of the reporting unit using a "step one" analysis utilizing a fair-value-based approach that uses a discounted cash flow analysis of projected future results to determine if it is more likely than not that the fair value of a reporting unit is less than its carrying amount. Determining the fair value of goodwill is subjective in nature and often involves the use of estimates and assumptions including, without limitation, use of estimates of future prices and volumes for our products, capital needs, economic trends and other factors which are inherently difficult to forecast. If actual results, or the plans and estimates used in future impairment analyses are lower than the original estimates used to assess the recoverability of these assets, we could incur impairment charges in a future period. The annual impairment test was performed in the fourth quarter of 2021. No impairment of goodwill was identified during 2021 and no circumstances or events occurred in the first quarter of 2022 that would require a test for impairment.

 

Insurance Accruals

 

We are partially self-insured for a portion of the claims related to our property and casualty insurance programs, which requires us to make estimates regarding expected losses to be incurred. We engage a third-party administrator to assess any open claims and we adjust our accrual accordingly on a periodic basis. We are also partially self-insured for a portion of the claims related to our workers’ compensation and medical insurance programs. We use actuarial information provided from third-party administrators to calculate an accrual for claims incurred, but not reported, and for the remaining portion of claims that have been reported.

 

Changes in the frequency, severity and development of existing claims could influence our reserve for claims and financial position, results of operations and cash flows. We do not believe there is a reasonable likelihood that there will be a material change in the estimates or assumptions we used to calculate our self-insured liabilities. However, if actual results are not consistent with our estimates or assumptions, we may be exposed to losses or gains that could be material.

 

Accounting for Income Taxes

 

Management’s judgment is required to determine the provisions for income taxes and to determine whether deferred tax assets will be realized in full or in part. Deferred income tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted tax rates expected to apply to taxable income in the years in which those temporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled. When it is more likely than not that all or some portion of specific deferred income tax assets will not be realized, a valuation allowance must be established for the amount of deferred income tax assets that are determined not to be realizable. Accordingly, the facts and financial circumstances impacting deferred income tax assets are reviewed quarterly and management’s judgment is applied to determine the amount of valuation allowance required, if any, in any given period.

 

Our income tax returns are periodically audited by tax authorities. These audits include questions regarding our tax filing positions, including the timing and amount of deductions. In evaluating the exposures associated with our various tax filing positions, we adjust our liability for unrecognized tax benefits and income tax provision in the period in which an uncertain tax position is effectively settled, the statute of limitations expires for the relevant taxing authority to examine the tax position or when more information becomes available.

 

 

Our liability for unrecognized tax benefits contains uncertainties because management is required to make assumptions and to apply judgment to estimate the exposures associated with our various filing positions. Our effective income tax rate is also affected by changes in tax law, the level of earnings and the results of tax audits. Although we believe that the judgments and estimates are reasonable, actual results could differ, and we may be exposed to losses or gains that could be material. An unfavorable tax settlement would generally require use of our cash and result in an increase in our effective income tax rate in the period of resolution. A favorable tax settlement would be recognized as a reduction in our effective income tax rate in the period of resolution. Our income tax expense includes the impact of reserve provisions and changes to reserves that we consider appropriate, as well as related interest.

 

Revenue Recognition

 

We recognize revenue when our customer obtains control of promised goods or services, in an amount that reflects the consideration which we expect to receive in exchange for those goods or services.  To determine revenue recognition for arrangements that we determine are within the scope of ASU 2014-09, “Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606), we perform the following five steps: (i) identify the contract with a customer; (ii) identify the performance obligations in the contract; (iii) determine the transaction price; (iv) allocate the transaction price to the performance obligations in the contract; and (v) recognize revenue when (or as) we satisfy a performance obligation.  We only apply the five-step model to contracts when it is probable that we will collect the consideration we are entitled to in exchange for the goods or services we transfer to the customer.  At contract inception, once the contract is determined to be within the scope of Topic 606, we assess the goods or services promised within each contract and determine those that are performance obligations. We then assess whether each promised good or service is distinct and recognize as revenue the amount of the transaction price that is allocated to the respective performance obligation when (or as) the performance obligation is satisfied.  

 

Leases

 

We lease commercial vehicles and real estate under finance and operating leases. We determine whether an arrangement is a lease at its inception. For leases with terms greater than twelve months, we record a lease asset and liability at the present value of lease payments over the term. Many of our leases include renewal options and termination options that are factored into our determination of lease payments when appropriate.

 

When available, we use the rate implicit in the lease to discount lease payments to present value; however, most of our leases do not provide a readily determinable implicit rate. Therefore, we must estimate our incremental borrowing rate to discount the lease payments based on information available at lease commencement.

 

We lease commercial vehicles that we own to customers. Lease and rental revenue is recognized over the period of the related lease or rental agreement. Variable rental revenue is recognized when it is earned.

 

Allowance for Credit Losses

 

All trade receivables are reported on the consolidated balance sheet at their cost basis adjusted for any write-offs and net of allowances for credit losses. We maintain allowances for credit losses, which represent an estimate of expected losses over the remaining contractual life of our receivables after considering current market conditions and estimates for supportable forecasts, when appropriate. The estimate is a result of our ongoing assessments and evaluations of collectability, historical loss experience, and future expectations in estimating credit losses in each of our receivable portfolios (commercial vehicle receivables, manufacturers’ receivables, parts and service receivables, leasing receivables and other trade receivables). For trade receivables, we use the probability of default and our historical loss experience rates by portfolio and apply them to a related aging analysis while also considering customer and economic risk where appropriate. Determination of the proper amount of allowances by portfolio requires us to exercise our judgment about the timing, frequency and severity of credit losses that could materially affect the provision for credit losses and, as a result, net earnings. The allowances take into consideration numerous quantitative and qualitative factors that include receivable type, historical loss experience, collection experience, current economic conditions, estimates for supportable forecasts (when appropriate) and credit risk characteristics.

Key Performance Indicator

 

Absorption Ratio

 

Management uses several performance metrics to evaluate the performance of our commercial vehicle dealerships and considers Rush Truck Centers’ “absorption ratio” to be of critical importance. Absorption ratio is calculated by dividing the gross profit from our Aftermarket Products and Services departments by the overhead expenses of all of a dealership’s departments, except for the selling expenses of the new and used commercial vehicle departments and carrying costs of new and used commercial vehicle inventory. When 100% absorption is achieved, all of the gross profit from the sale of a commercial vehicle, after sales commissions and inventory carrying costs, directly impacts operating profit. Our commercial vehicle dealerships achieved a 136.3% absorption ratio for the first quarter of 2022, compared to a 122.6% absorption ratio for the first quarter of 2021.

 

Three Months Ended March 31, 2022 Compared to Three Months Ended March 31, 2021

 

Revenues

 

Total revenues increased $331.4 million, or 26.9%, in the first quarter of 2022, compared to the first quarter of 2021. This increase was primarily the result of continued recovery of the national economy, strong demand for new and used commercial vehicle and the Summit Acquisition, which increased revenues across all areas of our business.

 

Our Aftermarket Products and Services revenues increased $127.5 million, or 30.7%, in the first quarter of 2022, compared to the first quarter of 2021. Our Aftermarket Parts and Services continue to benefit from a strong national economy.

 

Revenues from sales of new and used commercial vehicles increased $188.0 million, or 25.1%, in the first quarter of 2022, compared to the first quarter of 2021. The strong national economy, which led to historically high freight rates throughout the country, continues to maintain strong demand for commercial vehicles.

 

We sold 3,528 new Class 8 trucks in the first quarter of 2022, a 17.8% increase compared to 2,995 new Class 8 trucks in the first quarter of 2021. This increase in new Class 8 truck sales was primarily a result of the Summit Acquisition.

 

We sold 2,141 new Class 4 through 7 commercial vehicles, including 193 buses, in the first quarter of 2022, a 8.3% decrease compared to 2,334 new medium-duty commercial vehicles, including 140 buses, in the first quarter of 2021. Our new Class 4 through 7 commercial vehicle sales were negatively impacted by new commercial vehicle production constraints that affected the manufacturers we represent.

 

 

We sold 481 new light-duty vehicles in the first quarter of 2022, a 21.8% increase compared to 395 new light-duty vehicles in the first quarter of 2021. Our light-duty vehicle sales benefited from the increased demand for light-duty vehicles in the U.S.

 

We sold 2,395 used commercial vehicles in the first quarter of 2022, a 24.5% increase compared to 1,924 used commercial vehicles in the first quarter of 2021. Demand for used commercial vehicles remained strong in the first quarter of 2022. However, the number of used commercial vehicles we will be able to sell in 2022 depends on our ability to acquire quality used commercial vehicle inventory. We believe used truck demand and values will decrease when new truck production increases to a level adequate to meet customer demand; however, we believe demand for used trucks will remain strong throughout 2022.

 

Commercial vehicle lease and rental revenues increased $13.1 million, or 22.5%, in the first quarter of 2022, compared to the first quarter of 2021. The increase was partly due to increased rental fleet utilization and strong demand for vehicles to lease, which was impacted by the limited supply of new commercial vehicles.

 

Finance and insurance revenues increased $1.1 million, or 16.4%, in the first quarter of 2022, compared to the first quarter of 2021. The increase in finance and insurance revenues was partially due to sales of finance and insurance products to a higher percentage of new and used commercial vehicle purchasers in the first quarter of 2022. Finance and insurance revenues have limited direct costs and, therefore, contribute a disproportionate share of our operating profits.

 

Other income increased $1.7 million, or 46.5%, in the first quarter of 2022, compared to the first quarter of 2021. Other income consists primarily of document fees related to commercial vehicle sales.

 

Gross Profit

 

Gross profit increased $100.6 million, or 41.1%, in the first quarter of 2022, compared to the first quarter of 2021. Gross profit as a percentage of sales increased to 22.1% in the first quarter of 2022, from 19.9% in the first quarter of 2021. This increase in gross profit as a percentage of sales is a result of increased gross margins related to new and used commercial vehicle sales and an increase in Aftermarket Products and Services as a percentage of our overall product sales mix.

 

Gross margins from our Aftermarket Products and Services operations increased to 38.5% in the first quarter of 2022, compared to 37.0% in the first quarter of 2021. This increase is primarily related increases in parts pricing and increases in parts rebates from parts suppliers. Gross profit from our Aftermarket Products and Services operations increased to $209.1 million in the first quarter of 2022, from $153.9 million in the first quarter of 2021. Historically, gross margins on parts sales range from 28% to 30% and gross margins on service and collision center operations range from 66% to 68%. Gross profits from parts sales represented 62.5% of total gross profit for Aftermarket Products and Services operations in the first quarter of 2022 and 59.5% in the first quarter of 2021. Service and collision center operations represented 37.5% of total gross profit for Aftermarket Products and Services operations in the first quarter of 2022 and 40.5% in the first quarter of 2021. We expect blended gross margins on Aftermarket Products and Services operations to range from 37.5% to 38.5% in 2022.

 

Gross margins on new Class 8 truck sales increased to 9.7% in the first quarter of 2022, from 8.9% in the first quarter of 2021. This increase is primarily due to strong demand for new Class 8 trucks and the mix of purchasers during the first quarter of 2022. In 2022, we expect overall gross margins from new heavy-duty truck sales of approximately 8.0% to 9.5%.

 

Gross margins on new Class 4 through 7 commercial vehicle sales increased to 8.6% in the first quarter of 2022, from 7.1% in the first quarter of 2021. This increase is primarily due to the mix of purchasers during the first quarter of 2022 and strong demand for new Class 4 through 7 commercial vehicles. For 2022, we expect overall gross margins from new medium-duty commercial vehicle sales of approximately 7.5% to 8.5%, but this will largely depend upon the mix of purchasers and types of vehicles sold.

 

Gross margins on used commercial vehicle sales decreased to 15.9% in the first quarter of 2022, from 18.1% in the first quarter of 2021. This decrease is primarily due to a softening in used truck values as new Class 8 vehicle production begins to increase. We expect margins on used commercial vehicles to gradually decrease throughout 2022 as new commercial vehicle production increases and reach their historical range between 8.0% and 10.0% by the end of 2022.

                  

 

Gross margins from truck lease and rental sales increased to 31.9% in the first quarter of 2022, from 17.5% in the first quarter of 2021. This increase is primarily related to increased rental fleet utilization and changes to the way we finance commercial vehicles for our lease and rental fleet. In September of 2021, we entered into a credit agreement (“the WF Credit Agreement”) with the lenders signatory thereto (the “WF Lenders”) and Wells Fargo Bank, National Association (“WF”), as Administrative Agent (in such capacity, the “WF Agent”) that allows us to finance a portion of our Idealease lease and rental fleet through a general borrowing facility. In October of 2021, we entered into that certain Amended and Restated Inventory Financing and Purchase Money Security Agreement with PLC, a division of PACCAR Financial Corp. (the “PLC Agreement”) in the amount of $300.0 million to be used in connection with the acquisition of PacLease lease and rental fleet vehicles. The interest associated with the WF Credit Agreement and the PLC Agreement is recorded in interest expense on the Consolidated Statement of Income. Prior to the WF Credit Agreement and the PLC Agreement, interest expense associated with our lease and rental fleet purchases was recorded in cost of sales because each borrowing was directly related to each lease and rental vehicle purchased. This change in the structure of financing of our lease and rental fleet results in increased gross margins from our commercial vehicle lease and rental sales. We expect gross margins from lease and rental sales of approximately 31.0% to 33.0% during 2022. Our policy is to depreciate our lease and rental fleet using a straight-line method over each customer’s contractual lease term. The lease unit is depreciated to a residual value that approximates fair value at the expiration of the lease term. This policy results in us realizing reasonable gross margins while the unit is in service and a corresponding gain or loss on sale when the unit is sold at the end of the lease term.

 

Finance and insurance revenues and other income, as described above, have limited direct costs and, therefore, contribute a disproportionate share of gross profit.

 

Selling, General and Administrative Expenses

 

Selling, General and Administrative (“SG&A”) expenses increased $49.5 million, or 28.3%, in the first quarter of 2022, compared to the first quarter of 2021. This increase primarily resulted from increased personnel expense and increased selling expense, compared to the first quarter of 2021, and in addition, increased general and administrative expense associated with the Summit Acquisition. SG&A expenses as a percentage of total revenues increased to 14.4% in the first quarter of 2022, from 14.2% in the first quarter of 2021. Annual SG&A expenses as a percentage of total revenues have ranged from approximately 12.4% to 14.3% over the last five years. In general, when new and used commercial vehicle revenues decrease as a percentage of total revenues, SG&A expenses as a percentage of total revenues will be at the higher end of this range. For 2022, we expect SG&A expenses as a percentage of total revenues to range from 13.0% to 14.0%, due to the increase in revenues from sales of new and used commercial vehicles and Aftermarket Products and Services revenues. We expect the selling portion of SG&A expenses to be approximately 25.0% to 30.0% of new and used commercial vehicle gross profit.

 

Interest Expense, Net

 

Net interest expense increased $0.7 million, or 140.4%, in the first quarter of 2022, compared to the first quarter of 2021. This increase in interest expense is a result of the increase in inventory levels compared to 2021. We expect net interest expense in 2022 to increase due to interest related to lease and rental borrowings, but the amount of the increase will depend on inventory levels, interest rate fluctuations and the amount of cash available to make prepayments on our floor plan arrangements.

 

Income before Income Taxes

 

As a result of the factors described above, income from continuing operations before income taxes increased $63.7 million, or 112.5%, in the first quarter of 2022, compared to the first quarter of 2021.

 

Income Taxes

 

Income taxes increased $16.6 million, or 146.7%, in the first quarter of 2022, compared to the first quarter of 2021. We provided for taxes at a 23.2% effective rate in the first quarter of 2022 and 20.0% in the first quarter of 2021. The tax rate in the first quarter of 2021 was primarily impacted by the tax benefit related to the gain associated with vesting and exercise of equity awards granted through our long-term incentive plan. We expect our effective tax rate to be approximately 23.0% to 24.0% of pretax income in 2022.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

Our short-term cash requirements are primarily for working capital, inventory financing, the renovation and expansion of existing facilities and the construction or purchase of new facilities. Historically, these cash requirements have been met through the retention of profits, borrowings under our floor plan arrangements and bank financings. As of March 31, 2022, we had working capital of approximately $394.9 million, including $209.5 million in cash, available to fund our operations. We believe that these funds, together with expected cash flows from operations, are sufficient to meet our operating requirements for at least the next twelve months. From time to time, we utilize our excess cash on hand to pay down our outstanding borrowings under our floor plan credit agreement with BMO Harris Bank N.A. (“BMO Harris”) (the “Floor Plan Credit Agreement”), and the resulting interest earned is recognized as an offset to our gross interest expense under the Floor Plan Credit Agreement.

 

 

We continually evaluate our liquidity and capital resources based upon: (i) our cash and cash equivalents on hand; (ii) the funds that we expect to generate through future operations; (iii) current and expected borrowing availability under our secured line of credit, working capital lines of credit available under certain of our credit agreements and our Floor Plan Credit Agreement; and (iv) the potential impact of our capital allocation strategy and any contemplated or pending future transactions, including, but not limited to, acquisitions, equity repurchases, dividends, or other capital expenditures. We believe we will have sufficient liquidity to meet our debt service and working capital requirements, commitments and contingencies, debt repayments, acquisitions, capital expenditures and any operating requirements for at least the next twelve months.

 

We have a secured line of credit that provides for a maximum borrowing of $15.0 million. There were no advances outstanding under this secured line of credit on March 31, 2022, however, $14.3 million was pledged to secure various letters of credit related to self-insurance products, leaving $0.7 million available for future borrowings as of March 31, 2022.

 

Our long-term debt, floor plan financing agreements and the WF Credit Agreement require us to satisfy various financial ratios such as the leverage ratio, the asset coverage ratio and the fixed charge coverage ratio. As of March 31, 2022, we were in compliance with all debt covenants related to debt secured by lease and rental units, our floor plan credit agreements and the WF Credit Agreement. We do not anticipate any breach of the covenants in the foreseeable future.

 

We expect to purchase or lease commercial vehicles worth approximately $150.0 million to $170.0 million for our leasing operations during 2022, depending on customer demand, most of which will be financed. We also expect to make capital expenditures for the purchase of recurring items such as computers, shop tools and equipment and company vehicles of approximately $35.0 million to $40.0 million during 2022.

 

During the first quarter of 2022, we paid a cash dividend of $11.1 million. Additionally, on April 26, 2022, our Board of Directors declared a cash dividend of $0.19 per share of Class A and Class B Common Stock, to be paid on June 10, 2022, to all shareholders of record as of May 12, 2022. The total dividend disbursement is estimated at approximately $10.5 million. We expect to continue paying cash dividends on a quarterly basis. However, there is no assurance as to future dividends because the declaration and payment of such dividends is subject to the business judgment of our Board of Directors and will depend on historic and projected earnings, capital requirements, covenant compliance and financial conditions and such other factors as our Board of Directors deem relevant.

 

On November 30, 2021, we announced that our Board of Directors approved a new stock repurchase program authorizing management to repurchase, from time to time, up to an aggregate of $100.0 million of our shares of Class A Common Stock and/or Class B Common Stock. In connection with the adoption of the new stock repurchase plan, we terminated the prior stock repurchase plan, which was scheduled to expire on December 31, 2021. Repurchases, if any, will be made at times and in amounts as we deem appropriate and may be made through open market transactions at prevailing market prices, privately negotiated transactions or by other means in accordance with federal securities laws. The actual timing, number and value of repurchases under the stock repurchase program will be determined by management at its discretion and will depend on a number of factors, including market conditions, stock price and other factors, including those related to the ownership requirements of our dealership agreements with Peterbilt. As of March 31, 2022, we had repurchased $20.2 million of our shares of common stock under the current stock repurchase program. The current stock repurchase program expires on December 31, 2022, and may be suspended or discontinued at any time.

 

We anticipate funding the capital expenditures for the improvement and expansion of existing facilities and recurring expenses through our operating cash flows. We have the ability to fund the construction or purchase of new facilities through our operating cash flows or by financing.

 

We have no other material commitments for capital expenditures as of March 31, 2022. However, we will continue to purchase vehicles for our lease and rental operations and authorize capital expenditures for the improvement or expansion of our existing dealership facilities and construction or purchase of new facilities based on market opportunities.

 

Cash Flows

 

Cash and cash equivalents increased by $61.4 million during the three months ended March 31, 2022, and increased by $4.0 million during the three months ended March 31, 2021. The major components of these changes are discussed below.

 

Cash Flows from Operating Activities

 

Cash flows from operating activities include net income adjusted for non-cash items and the effects of changes in working capital. During the first quarter of 2022, operating activities resulted in net cash provided by operations of $34.6 million. Net cash provided by operating activities primarily consisted of $92.5 million in net income adjusted by the gain of $12.5 million related to the joint venture transaction, as well as non-cash adjustments related to depreciation and amortization of $45.8 million, deferred income tax benefit of $1.0 million and stock-based compensation of $13.8 million. Cash provided by operating activities included an aggregate of $101.7 million net change in operating assets and liabilities. Included in the net change in operating assets and liabilities was primarily cash outflows of $58.8 million from the increase in accounts receivable, $98.3 million from the increase in inventory, $8.7 million from the decrease in customer deposits, which were offset by cash inflows of $64.2 million from the net increase in accounts payable and accrued liabilities. The majority of our commercial vehicle inventory is financed through our floor plan credit agreements.

 

 

During the first quarter of 2021, operating activities resulted in net cash provided by operations of $40.1 million. Net cash provided by operating activities primarily consisted of $45.3 million in net income, as well as non-cash adjustments related to depreciation and amortization of $42.6 million, deferred income tax benefit of $8.4 million and stock-based compensation of $11.5 million. Cash provided by operating activities included an aggregate of $50.1 million net change in operating assets and liabilities. Included in the net change in operating assets and liabilities was primarily cash outflows of $14.7 million from the increase in accounts receivable, $1.8 million from the increase in inventory, $0.7 million in the increase in other current assets, $1.6 million from the net decrease in accounts payable and accrued liabilities, $31.2 million from the decrease in customer deposits.

 

Cash Flows from Investing Activities

 

During the first quarter of 2022, cash used in investing activities totaled $16.3 million. Cash flows used in investing activities consist primarily of cash used for capital expenditures. Capital expenditures totaled $45.7 million during the first quarter of 2022 and consisted primarily of purchases of property and equipment, improvements to our existing dealership facilities and $27.8 million for purchases of rental and lease vehicles for the rental and leasing operations. The cash outflows were offset by the cash inflow of $27.5 million related to Cummins, Inc.’s acquisition of a 50% equity interest in Momentum Fuel Technologies.

 

During the first quarter of 2021, cash used in investing activities was $32.2 million. Cash flows used in investing activities consist primarily of cash used for capital expenditures. Capital expenditures of $32.9 million consisted primarily of $8.3 million for purchases of property and equipment and improvements to our existing dealership facilities and $24.6 million for additional units for the rental and leasing operations, which were directly offset by borrowings of long-term debt.

 

Cash Flows from Financing Activities

 

Cash flows from financing activities include borrowings and repayments of long-term debt and net proceeds of floor plan notes payable, non-trade. During the first quarter of 2022, financing activities provided $43.1 million in net cash flow. Cash outflows were primarily related to $208.0 million used for principal repayments of long-term debt and finance lease obligations, $14.4 million used for the repurchase of our common stock and $11.1 million used for the payment of cash dividends. These cash outflows were offset by cash inflows related to borrowings of $207.5 million of long-term debt and $71.5 million used for net draws on floor plan (non-trade).

 

Cash flows from financing activities include borrowings and repayments of long-term debt and net proceeds of floor plan notes payable, non-trade. During the first quarter of 2021, financing activities used $4.0 million in net cash flow. Cash outflows were primarily related to $46.8 million used for principal repayments of long-term debt and capital lease obligations, $6.6 million used for the repurchase of our common stock and $9.9 million used for the payment of cash dividends. These cash outflows were offset by cash inflows related to borrowings of $28.2 million of long-term debt and $38.5 million used for net draws on floor plan (non-trade). The borrowings of long-term debt were related to purchasing units for the rental and leasing operations.

 

On September 14, 2021, we entered into the WF Credit Agreement with the WF Lenders and the WF Agent. Pursuant to the terms of the WF Credit Agreement, the WF Lenders have agreed to make up to $250.0 million of revolving credit loans for certain of our capital expenditures, including commercial vehicle purchases for our Idealease leasing and rental fleet, and general working capital needs. We expect to use the revolving credit loans available under the WF Credit Agreement primarily for the purpose of purchasing commercial vehicles for our Idealease lease and rental fleet. We may borrow, repay and reborrow amounts pursuant to the WF Credit Agreement from time to time until the maturity date. Borrowings under the WF Credit Agreement bear interest per annum, payable on each interest payment date, as defined in the WF Credit Agreement, at (A) the daily SOFR rate plus (i) 1.25% or (ii) 1.5%, depending on our consolidated leverage ratio or (B) on or after the term SOFR transition date, the term SOFR rate plus (i) 1.25% or (ii) 1.5%, depending on our consolidated leverage ratio. The WF Credit Agreement expires on September 14, 2024, although, upon the occurrence and during the continuance of an event of default, the WF Agent has the right to, or upon the request of the required lenders must, terminate the commitments and declare all outstanding principal and interest due and payable. We may terminate the commitments at any time. On March 31, 2022, we had approximately $153.4 million outstanding under the WF Credit Agreement.

 

 

On October 1, 2021, we entered into the PLC Agreement. Pursuant to the terms of the PLC Agreement, PLC agreed to make up to $300.0 million of revolving credit loans to finance certain of our capital expenditures, including commercial vehicle purchases and other equipment to be leased or rented through our PacLease franchises. We may borrow, repay and reborrow amounts pursuant to the PLC Agreement from time to time until the maturity date, provided, however, that the outstanding principal amount on any date shall not exceed the borrowing base. Advances under the PLC Agreement bear interest per annum, payable on the fifth day of the following month, at our option, at either (A) the prime rate, minus 1.55%, provided that the floating rate of interest is subject to a floor of 0%, or (B) a fixed rate, to be determined between us and PLC in each instance of borrowing at a fixed rate. The PLC Agreement expires on October 1, 2025, although either party has the right to terminate the PLC Agreement at any time upon 180 days written notice. If we terminate the PLC Agreement prior to October 1, 2025, then all payments will be deemed to be voluntary prepayments subject to a potential prepayment premium. On March 31, 2022, we had approximately $185.0 million outstanding under the PLC Agreement.

 

Most of our commercial vehicle purchases are made on terms requiring payment to the manufacturer within 15 days or less from the date the commercial vehicles are invoiced from the factory. On September 14, 2021, we entered into Floor Plan Credit Agreement with BMO Harris and the lenders signatory thereto. Prior to the Floor Plan Credit Agreement, we financed the majority of all new commercial vehicle inventory and the loan value of our used commercial vehicle inventory under the Fourth Amended and Restated Floor Plan Credit Agreement with BMO Harris and the majority of such financings will continue to occur under the Floor Plan Credit Agreement. The Floor Plan Credit Agreement includes an aggregate loan commitment of $1.0 billion. Borrowings under the Floor Plan Credit Agreement bear interest at an annual rate equal to (A) the greater of (i) zero and (ii) one month LIBOR rate, determined on the last day of the prior month, plus (B) 1.10% and are payable monthly. Loans under the Floor Plan Credit Agreement for the purchase of used inventory are limited to $150.0 million and loans for working capital purposes are limited to $200.0 million. The Floor Plan Credit Agreement expires September 14, 2026, although BMO Harris has the right to terminate at any time upon 360 days written notice and we may terminate at any time, subject to specified limited exceptions. On March 31, 2022, we had approximately $591.4 million outstanding under the Floor Plan Credit Agreement. The average daily outstanding borrowings under the Floor Plan Credit Agreement were $522.8 million during the three months ended March 31, 2022. We utilize our excess cash on hand to pay down our outstanding borrowings under the Floor Plan Credit Agreement, and the resulting interest earned is recognized as an offset to our gross interest expense under the Floor Plan Credit Agreement.

 

Navistar Financial Corporation and Peterbilt offer trade terms that provide an interest-free inventory stocking period for certain new commercial vehicles. This interest-free period is generally 15 to 60 days. If the commercial vehicle is not sold within the interest-free period, we then finance the commercial vehicle under the Floor Plan Credit Agreement.

 

Backlog

 

On March 31, 2022, our backlog of commercial vehicle orders was approximately $3,441.4 million, compared to a backlog of commercial vehicle orders of approximately $1,736.0 million on March 31, 2021. This increase in our backlog is primarily due to production constraints experienced by the manufacturers we represent. Our backlog is determined quarterly by multiplying the number of new commercial vehicles for each particular type of commercial vehicle ordered by a customer at our Rush Truck Centers by the recent average selling price for that type of commercial vehicle. We include only confirmed orders in our backlog. However, such orders are subject to cancellation. In the event of order cancellation, we have no contractual right to the total revenues reflected in our backlog. The delivery time for a custom-ordered commercial vehicle varies depending on the truck specifications and demand for the particular model ordered. We sell the majority of our new heavy-duty commercial vehicles by customer special order and we sell the majority of our medium- and light-duty commercial vehicles out of inventory. Orders from a number of our major fleet customers are included in our backlog as of March 31, 2022, and we expect to fill the majority of our backlog orders during 2022, assuming that the manufacturers we represent can meet their current production schedule. Our current backlog is the largest it has ever been in our Company’s history. Given the potential for industry headwinds in the coming months caused by lower spot rates and higher interest rates and fuel prices, which could negatively impact industry demand for new commercial vehicles moving forward, we believe that the longer it takes to fill our backlog, the greater the risk that a significant amount of commercial vehicle orders currently reflected in our backlog could be cancelled.

 

Seasonality

 

Our Truck Segment is moderately seasonal. Seasonal effects on new commercial vehicle sales related to the seasonal purchasing patterns of any single customer type are mitigated by the diverse geographic locations of our dealerships and our diverse customer base, including regional and national fleets, local and state governments, corporations and owner-operators. However, commercial vehicle Aftermarket Products and Services operations historically have experienced higher sales volumes in the second and third quarters.

 

 

Cyclicality

 

Our business is dependent on a number of factors including general economic conditions, fuel prices, interest rate fluctuations, credit availability, environmental and other government regulations and customer business cycles. Unit sales of new commercial vehicles have historically been subject to substantial cyclical variation based on these general economic conditions. According to data published by A.C.T. Research, total U.S. retail sales of new Class 8 commercial vehicles have ranged from a low of approximately 110,000 in 2010, to a high of approximately 281,440 in 2019. Through geographic expansion, concentration on higher margin Aftermarket Products and Services and diversification of our customer base, we have attempted to reduce the negative impact of adverse general economic conditions or cyclical trends affecting the Class 8 commercial vehicle industry on our earnings.

 

Environmental Standards and Other Governmental Regulations

 

We are subject to federal, state and local environmental laws and regulations governing the following: discharges into the air and water; the operation and removal of underground and aboveground storage tanks; the use, handling, storage and disposal of hazardous substances, petroleum and other materials; and the investigation and remediation of environmental impacts. As with commercial vehicle dealerships generally, and vehicle service, parts and collision center operations in particular, our business involves the generation, use, storage, handling and contracting for recycling or disposal of hazardous materials or wastes and other environmentally sensitive materials. We have incurred, and will continue to incur, capital and operating expenditures and other costs in complying with such laws and regulations.

 

Our operations involving the use, handling, storage and disposal of hazardous and nonhazardous materials are subject to the requirements of the federal Resource Conservation and Recovery Act, or RCRA, and comparable state statutes. Pursuant to these laws, federal and state environmental agencies have established approved methods for handling, storage, treatment, transportation and disposal of regulated substances with which we must comply. Our business also involves the operation and use of aboveground and underground storage tanks. These storage tanks are subject to periodic testing, containment, upgrading and removal under RCRA and comparable state statutes. Furthermore, investigation or remediation may be necessary in the event of leaks or other discharges from current or former underground or aboveground storage tanks.

 

We may also have liability in connection with materials that were sent to third‑party recycling, treatment, or disposal facilities under the federal Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act, or CERCLA, and comparable state statutes. These statutes impose liability for investigation and remediation of environmental impacts without regard to fault or the legality of the conduct that contributed to the impacts. Responsible parties under these statutes may include the owner or operator of the site where impacts occurred and companies that disposed, or arranged for the disposal, of the hazardous substances released at these sites. These responsible parties also may be liable for damages to natural resources. In addition, it is not uncommon for neighboring landowners and other third parties to file claims for personal injury and property damage allegedly caused by the release of hazardous substances or other materials into the environment.

 

The federal Clean Water Act and comparable state statutes require containment of potential discharges of oil or hazardous substances, and require preparation of spill contingency plans. Water quality protection programs govern certain discharges from some of our operations. Similarly, the federal Clean Air Act and comparable state statutes regulate emissions of various air emissions through permitting programs and the imposition of standards and other requirements.

 

The Environmental Protection Agency (“EPA”) and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (“NHTSA”), on behalf of the U.S. Department of Transportation, issued rules associated with reducing greenhouse gas (“GHG”) emissions and improving the fuel efficiency of medium and heavy-duty trucks and buses for current model years through 2027.  In addition, in August 2021, the President of the United States issued an executive order intended to increase fuel efficiency, further reduce GHG emissions and speed up the development of “zero-emission” vehicles. The executive order calls for the EPA and the Secretary of Transportation to adopt new rules and regulations for commercial vehicles starting as early as model year 2027. Similarly, in June 2020, the California Air Resources Board adopted a final rule that is intended to phase out the sale of diesel-powered commercial vehicles over time by requiring a certain percentage of each manufacturer’s commercial vehicles sold within the state to be “zero-emission vehicles,” or “near-zero emission vehicles,” starting in model year 2024. In addition, in July 2020, a group of fifteen U.S. states and the District of Columbia entered into a joint memorandum of understanding that commits each of them to work together to advance and accelerate the market for electric Class 3 through 8 commercial vehicles; one additional state signed in 2021. Four of the states that signed are states where we operate new commercial vehicle dealerships: California, Colorado, North Carolina and Virginia. The signatories to the memorandum all agreed on a goal of ensuring that 100% of new Class 3 through 8 commercial vehicles are zero emission by 2050, with an interim target of 30% zero emission by 2030. Attaining these goals would likely require the adoption of new laws and regulations and we cannot predict at this time whether such laws and regulations would have an adverse impact on our business. Additional regulations could result in increased compliance costs, additional operating restrictions or changes in demand for our products and services, which could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition and results of operations.

 

 

We do not believe that we currently have any material environmental liabilities or that compliance with environmental laws and regulations will have a material adverse effect on our results of operations, financial condition or cash flows. However, soil and groundwater impacts are known to exist at some of our dealerships. Further, environmental laws and regulations are complex and subject to change. In addition, in connection with acquisitions, it is possible that we will assume or become subject to new or unforeseen environmental costs or liabilities, some of which may be material. In connection with our dispositions, or prior dispositions made by companies we acquire, we may retain exposure for environmental costs and liabilities, some of which may be material. Compliance with current or amended, or new or more stringent, laws or regulations, stricter interpretations of existing laws or the future discovery of environmental conditions could require additional expenditures by us, which could materially adversely affect our results of operations, financial condition or cash flows. In addition, such laws could affect demand for the products that we sell.

 

ITEM 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures about Market Risk.

 

Market risk represents the risk of loss that may impact the financial position, results of operations, or cash flows of the Company due to adverse changes in financial market prices, including interest rate risk, and other relevant market rate or price risks.

 

We are exposed to market risk through interest rates related to our floor plan financing agreements, the WF Credit Agreement, the PLC Agreement and discount rates related to finance sales. Our floor plan debt is based on LIBOR, the WF Credit Agreement is based on SOFR and the PLC Agreement is based on the prime rate. As of March 31, 2022, we had floor plan borrowings and borrowings from WF and PLC in the amount of $1,040.6 million. Assuming an increase or decrease in LIBOR, SOFR or the prime rate of 100 basis points, annual interest expense could correspondingly increase or decrease by approximately $10.4 million.

 

ITEM 4. Controls and Procedures.

 

The Company, under the supervision and with the participation of management, including the Company’s principal executive officer and chief financial officer, evaluated the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures as of the end of the period covered by this report. Based on that evaluation, the principal executive officer and chief financial officer concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures were effective as of March 31, 2022 to ensure that information required to be disclosed in the reports filed or submitted under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 is (i) recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the Securities and Exchange Commission’s rules and forms, and (ii) is accumulated and communicated to Company management, including the principal executive officer and chief financial officer, as appropriate, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

 

There has been no change in our internal control over financial reporting that occurred during the three months ended March 31, 2022 that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

 

 

PART II. OTHER INFORMATION

 

ITEM 1. Legal Proceedings.

 

From time to time, we are involved in litigation arising out of our operations in the ordinary course of business. We maintain liability insurance, including product liability coverage, in amounts deemed adequate by management. However, an uninsured or partially insured claim, or claim for which indemnification is not available, could have a material adverse effect on our financial condition or results of operations. As of March 31, 2022, we believe that there are no pending claims or litigation, individually or in the aggregate, that are reasonably likely to have a material adverse effect on our financial position or results of operations. However, due to the inherent uncertainty of litigation, there can be no assurance that the resolution of any particular claim or proceeding would not have a material adverse effect on our financial condition or results of operations for the fiscal period in which such resolution occurred.

 

ITEM 1A. Risk Factors.

 

While we attempt to identify, manage and mitigate risks and uncertainties associated with our business to the extent practical under the circumstances, some level of risk and uncertainty will always be present. Item 1A, Part I of our 2021 Annual Report on Form 10-K (the “2021 Annual Report”) describes some of the risks and uncertainties associated with our business that have the potential to materially affect our business, financial condition or results of operations.

 

There has been no material change in our risk factors disclosed in our 2021 Annual Report.         

 

ITEM 2. Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities and Use of Proceeds.

 

We did not make any unregistered sales of equity securities during the first quarter of 2022.
