Vertiv Holdings Co
Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements (Unaudited)
(Dollars in millions, except per share amounts)
(1) DESCRIPTION OF BUSINESS
Vertiv Holdings Co (“Holdings Co”, and together with its majority-owned subsidiaries, “Vertiv”, “we”, “our”, or “the Company”), formerly known as GS Acquisition Holdings Corp (“GSAH”), provides mission-critical digital infrastructure technologies and life cycle services primarily for data centers, communication networks, and commercial and industrial environments. Vertiv’s offerings include AC and DC power management products, switchgear and busbar products, thermal management products, integrated rack systems, modular solutions, management systems for monitoring and controlling digital infrastructure, and service. Vertiv manages and reports results of operations for three business segments: Americas; Asia Pacific; and Europe, Middle East & Africa.
(2) BASIS OF PRESENTATION AND SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES
The unaudited condensed consolidated interim financial statements have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) in the U.S. and the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) and include the accounts of the Company and its subsidiaries in which the Company has a controlling interest. These unaudited condensed consolidated interim financial statements do not include all of the information and footnotes required for complete financial statements. In management’s opinion, these financial statements reflect all adjustments of a normal, recurring nature necessary for a fair presentation of the results for the interim periods presented. The presentation of certain prior period amounts have been reclassed to conform with current year presentation.
The preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires the Company to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual amounts could differ from the estimates. On an ongoing basis, management reviews its estimates based on currently available information. Changes in facts and circumstances may result in revised estimates. Results for these interim periods are not necessarily indicative of results to be expected for the full year due to, among other reasons, the continued uncertainty of general economic conditions that have impacted, and may continue to impact, the Company's sales channels, supply chain, manufacturing operations, workforce, or other key aspects of the Company’s operations.
The notes included herein should be read in conjunction with the Company’s audited consolidated financial statements included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2023, filed with the SEC on February 23, 2024.
Accounting Pronouncements
In November 2023, the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") issued Accounting Standards Update ("ASU") 2023-07: Segment Reporting (Topic 280) Improvements to Reportable Segment Disclosures. This ASU provides amendments by requiring disclosure of incremental segment information on an annual and interim basis. The amendments are effective in fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2023 and interim periods within fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2024. The Company does not expect the adoption to have a material impact on its Consolidated Financial Statements.
In December 2023, the FASB issued ASU 2023-09: Income Taxes (Topic 740) Improvements to Income Tax Disclosures. This ASU provides amendments that require entities to annually disclose specific rate reconciliation categories, additional details for significant reconciling items exceeding 5%, and comprehensive breakdowns of income taxes paid by jurisdiction. The amendments are effective in fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2024. The Company does not expect the adoption to have a material impact on its Consolidated Financial Statements.
(3) REVENUE
The Company recognizes revenue from the sale of manufactured products and services when control of promised goods or services are transferred to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration the Company expects to be entitled to receive in exchange for those goods or services.
7

ABL Revolving Credit Facility
On February 16, 2024, the Borrower and certain subsidiaries entered into Amendment No. 8 (the “Eighth Amendment”), which, among other modifications, extended the maturity date of the ABL Revolving Credit Facility to be five years from the date of the Eighth Amendment (subject to an earlier springing maturity date if certain other indebtedness for borrowed money matures earlier), increased the revolving loan commitments tranche by $30.0 to a total loan commitment of $600.0 under the ABL Revolving Credit Facility, modified certain borrowing base reporting requirements and removed the French tranche and the FILO tranches from the ABL Revolving Credit Facility.
9

At March 31, 2024, Vertiv Group Corporation (a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company), as Borrower, and certain subsidiaries of the Borrower as co-borrowers (the “Co-Borrowers”), had $584.2 of availability under the Asset Based Revolving Credit Facility (the “ABL Revolving Credit Facility”) (subject to customary conditions, and subject to separate sublimits for letters of credit, swingline borrowings and borrowings made to certain non-U.S. Co-Borrowers), net of letters of credit outstanding in the aggregate principal amount of $15.8, and taking into account the borrowing base limitations set forth in the ABL Revolving Credit Facility. At both March 31, 2024 and December 31, 2023, there was no outstanding balance on the ABL Revolving Credit Facility.
(6) INCOME TAXES
The Company’s effective tax rate was 54.6% and 42.6% for the three months ended March 31, 2024 and 2023, respectively. The effective tax rate in the three months ended March 31, 2024 is primarily influenced by the negative impacts of non-deductible changes in the fair value of the warrant liabilities, discrete tax benefits related to stock compensation activity in the quarter and the mix of income between the Company’s U.S. and non-U.S. operations. The effective rate for the comparative three months ended March 31, 2023 primarily influenced by the mix of income between the Company’s U.S. and non-U.S. operations, net of changes in valuation allowances and the impact of changes in our indefinite reinvestment liability.
The Company provided U.S. federal income taxes and foreign withholding taxes on all temporary differences attributed to basis differences in foreign subsidiaries that are not considered indefinitely reinvested. As of March 31, 2024, the Company has certain earnings of certain foreign affiliates that continue to be indefinitely reinvested, but it was not practicable to estimate the associated deferred tax liability, due to interaction with other tax laws and regulations in the year of inclusion.
(7) RELATED PARTY TRANSACTIONS
Transactions with Affiliates of Advisors
On August 8, 2023 (the "Stock Sale Transaction date"), VPE Holdings, LLC (the "Vertiv Stockholder"), an affiliate of Platinum Equity Advisors, LLC ("Advisors") completed the sale of 20,000,000 shares of Class A common stock of the Company (the "Stock Sale Transaction"). Subsequent to the Stock Sale Transaction, the Vertiv Stockholder holds less than 5% of the outstanding Class A common stock of the Company and as such is no longer considered a related person of the Company for purposes of Item 404 of Regulation S-K by virtue of its ownership in the Company. Prior to the Stock Sale Transaction date, the Company purchased and sold goods in the ordinary course of business with affiliates of Advisors. For the three months ended March 31, 2023 purchases and sales were $31.0 and $35.6, respectively.

(9) FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS AND RISK MANAGEMENT
In accordance with ASC 820, the Company uses a three-tier fair value hierarchy, which prioritizes the inputs used in measuring fair value. Observable inputs are from sources independent of the Company. Unobservable inputs reflect the Company’s assumptions about the factors market participants would use in valuing the asset or liability developed based upon the best information available in the circumstances. These tiers include the following:
Level 1 — inputs include observable unadjusted quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities
Level 2 — inputs include other than quoted prices in active markets that are either directly or indirectly observable
Level 3 — inputs include unobservable inputs in which little or no market data exists, therefore requiring an entity to develop its own assumptions
In determining fair value, the Company uses various valuation techniques and prioritizes the use of observable inputs. The availability of observable inputs varies from instrument to instrument and depends on a variety of factors including the type of instrument, whether the instrument is actively traded, and other characteristics particular to the instrument. For many financial instruments, pricing inputs are readily observable in the market, the valuation methodology used is widely accepted by market participants, and the valuation does not require significant management judgment. For other financial instruments, pricing inputs are less observable in the marketplace and may require management judgment.

Interest rate swaps — From time to time the Company may enter into derivative financial instruments designed to hedge the variability in interest expense on floating rate debt. Derivatives are recognized as assets or liabilities in the Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets at their fair value. When the derivative instrument qualifies as a cash flow hedge changes in the fair value are deferred through other comprehensive income depending on the effectiveness of the instrument.
The Company uses interest rate swaps to manage the interest rate risk of the Company’s total debt portfolio and related overall cost of borrowing. At both March 31, 2024 and December 31, 2023, interest rate swap agreements designated as cash flow hedges effectively swapped a notional amount of $1,000.0 of SOFR-based floating rate debt for fixed rate debt. The Company’s interest rate swaps mature in March 2027. During the three months ended March 31, 2024 and 2023, the Company recognized income of $10.7 and $8.1, respectively, within “Interest expense, net” on the Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Statements of Earnings (Loss). At March 31, 2024, the Company expects that approximately $38.5 of pre-tax net gains on cash flow hedges will be reclassified from accumulated other comprehensive income (loss) into earnings during the next twelve months.
The interest rate swaps are valued using the SOFR yield curves at the reporting date. Counterparties to these contracts are highly rated financial institutions. The fair values of the Company’s interest rate swaps are adjusted for nonperformance risk and creditworthiness of the counterparty through the Company’s credit valuation adjustment (“CVA”). The CVA is calculated at the counterparty level utilizing the fair value exposure at each payment date and applying a weighted probability of the appropriate survival and marginal default percentages.
12

Foreign currency exchange forwards - The Company may enter into derivative financial instruments designed to hedge the exposure to changes in foreign currency exchange rates. Derivatives are recognized as assets or liabilities in the Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets at their fair value. The Company values foreign currency exchange swaps using broker quotations or market transactions on the listed or over-the-counter market, as such, these derivative instruments are classified in Level 2. When the derivative instrument qualifies as a cash flow hedge changes in the fair value are deferred through other comprehensive income depending on the effectiveness of the instrument. The Company reclassifies the gain or loss associated with the cash flow hedges into earnings when the underlying exposure is recognized. At March 31, 2024 we have derivative instruments which hedge our exposure to certain foreign currency exchange rates with a notional amount of $118.0. For the three months ended March 31, 2024 there was no realized gain associated with the foreign currency exchange swaps on the Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Statements of Earnings (Loss).
Economic hedges - At March 31, 2024 we have derivative instruments which hedge our purchases of aluminum and copper with notional amounts of 6,090.0 and 5,140.0 thousand metric tons, respectively. These derivative instruments are treated as economic hedges and for the three months ended March 31, 2024, the Company recognized mark-to-market gains (losses) of $0.7 in "Other operating expense (income)" on the Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Statement of Earnings (Loss).
Private warrants — The fair value of the private warrants is considered a Level 2 valuation and is determined using the Black-Sholes-Merton valuation model. The Company recognized a loss of $176.6 for the three months ended March 31, 2024 in "Change in the fair value of warrant liabilities" on the Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Statement of Earnings (Loss) associated with the mark-to-market adjustment on the 5,266,667 outstanding private warrants. On February 24, 2023, GS Sponsor LLC elected to exercise 5,266,666 warrants on a cashless basis pursuant to the agreement governing the warrants, in exchange for which the Company issued 1,368,194 shares of Class A common stock. For the three months ended March 31, 2023, the Company recognized a gain of $7.7 in "Change in the fair value of warrant liabilities" on the Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Statement of Earnings (Loss) associated with the exercise of these private warrants. Additionally, the Company recognized a loss of $3.5 for the three months ended March 31, 2023 in "Change in the fair value of warrant liabilities" on the Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Statement of Earnings (Loss) associated with the mark-to-market adjustment on the remaining 5,266,667 outstanding private warrants.

Net investment hedge — From time to time the Company designates certain intercompany debt to hedge a portion of its investment in foreign subsidiaries and affiliates. The net impact of translation adjustments from these hedges was $21.3 for the three months ended March 31, 2024 and is included in “Foreign currency translation” in the Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Statement of Other Comprehensive Income (Loss). The net impact of translation adjustments from these hedges was $11.6 for the three months ended March 31, 2023. As of March 31, 2024 and December 31, 2023, $244.9 and $225.0, respectively, of the Company’s intercompany debt was designated to hedge investments in certain foreign subsidiaries and affiliates.

(12) EARNINGS (LOSS) PER SHARE
Basic earnings (loss) per share is computed by dividing net income (loss) by the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding during the period. Diluted earnings (loss) per share is computed by dividing net income (loss) adjusted for the gain on fair value of warrant liability, if the warrants are in-the-money and the impact is dilutive, by the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding during the period increased by the number of additional shares that would have been outstanding related to potentially dilutive equity-based compensation and warrants.

Additional equity-based compensation awards of 9.3 million shares were also outstanding during the three months ended March 31, 2023, but were not included in the computation of diluted earnings (loss) per share because the effect would be anti-dilutive.
(13) COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES
The Company is a party to a number of pending legal proceedings and claims, including those involving general and product liability and other matters. The Company accrues for such liabilities when it is probable that future costs will be incurred and such costs can be reasonably estimated. Accruals are based on developments to date; management’s estimates of the outcomes of these matters; the Company’s experience in contesting, litigating and settling similar matters; and any related insurance coverage. While the Company believes that a material adverse impact is unlikely, given the inherent uncertainty of litigation, a future development in these matters could have a material adverse impact on the Company. The Company is unable to estimate any additional loss or range of loss that may result from the ultimate resolution of these matters, other than those described below.
On May 3, 2022, a putative securities class action, In re Vertiv Holdings Co Securities Litigation, 22-cv-3572, was filed against Vertiv, certain of the Company’s officers and directors, and other defendants in the Southern District of New York. Plaintiffs filed an amended complaint on September 16, 2022. The amended complaint alleges that certain of the Company’s public statements were materially false and/or misleading with respect to inflationary and supply chain pressures and pricing issues, and asserts claims under Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and Sections 11, 12(a)(2), and 15 of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended. These claims are asserted on behalf of a putative class of all persons and entities that (i) purchased Vertiv securities between February 24, 2021 and February 22, 2022; and/or (ii) purchased Vertiv securities in or traceable to the November 4, 2021 secondary public offering by a selling stockholder pursuant to a resale registration statement. On January 31, 2024, the Court issued an order dismissing the claims under Sections 11, 12(a)(2), and 15 of the Securities Act. The motion to dismiss the claims under Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Exchange Act remains pending.
On June 9, 2023, two Vertiv shareholders, Matthew Sullivan and Jose Karlo Ocampo Avenido, brought a derivative lawsuit, Sullivan v. Johnson, et al., C.A. No. 2023-0608, against Vertiv (as nominal defendant only) and certain of the Company’s directors and officers in Delaware Court of Chancery for breach of fiduciary duty. The complaint alleges that certain of the named directors and officers caused the Company to issue materially false and/or misleading public statements with respect to inflationary and supply chain pressures and pricing issues, and that the Company suffered damages as a result.
Defendants believe they have meritorious defenses against the plaintiffs' claims in these lawsuits, which are at the preliminary stages, but the Company is unable at this time to predict the outcome of these disputes or the amount of any cost associated with their resolution.
16

In November 2023, following the filing of the actions described above, the Company received a subpoena from the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) and a parallel request for documents from the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York, which relate to the allegations made in the class action complaint and derivative action. The Company is actively responding to these matters.
In January 2024, the Mexican tax administration service, the Servicio de Administracion Tributaria (the "SAT"), initiated a process to suspend the importer registration of one of the Company's wholly owned Mexico subsidiaries, Tecnología del Pacífico S.A. de C.V. (“TDP”), in connection with a contested customs tax audit for the period April 2016 to February 2018. SAT claimed its basis for the suspension was a failure by TDP to provide sufficient evidence of the export of goods temporarily imported at required levels under Mexico's Manufacturing, Maquila and Export Services Industries Program ("IMMEX Program"). The Company and TDP has disputed SAT’s position throughout the customs tax audit, through the filing of various petitions and appeals with appropriate documentation evidencing the complete and timely export of the goods temporarily imported during the audit period. TDP has accepted a proposal from SAT to close the audit by making payments and fees totaling approximately $10.1 which has been recorded in “Accrued expenses and other liabilities” on the Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets as of December 31, 2023. The Company intends to seek reimbursement of this amount as an undue payment in the near future from SAT, for which the outcome is currently unknown and no receivable has been established. Furthermore, the Company remains subject to other customs tax audits concerning other facilities located within Mexico. While we cannot predict with certainty the outcome of other assessments, based on currently known information, we believe a risk of loss, if any, is not currently estimable. Accordingly, no further reserve for loss contingency has been recorded in the Company's financial statements as of March 31, 2024 related to these other matters. The accepted proposal was paid to SAT in the first quarter of 2024.
The Company is unable at this time to predict the outcome of these matters, including whether any proceedings may be instituted in connection with the government inquiries, or the amount of any cost associated with their resolution except as otherwise noted above.
At March 31, 2024, other than as described above, there were no known contingent liabilities (including guarantees, taxes and other claims) that management believes were or will be material in relation to the Company’s Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements, nor were there any material commitments outside the normal course of business.

ITEM 2. MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS
Unless the context otherwise indicates or requires, references to (1) “the Company,” “Vertiv,” “we,” “us” and “our” refer to Vertiv Holdings Co, a Delaware corporation, and its consolidated subsidiaries. In addition, dollar amounts are stated in millions, except for per share amounts. You should read the following discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations in conjunction with the unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements and the notes thereto included elsewhere in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q (this "Form 10-Q") and the audited consolidated financial statements and the notes thereto in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2023, filed with the SEC on February 27, 2024 (the “2023 Form 10-K”).
Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements
This Form 10-Q, and other statements that Vertiv may make, may contain forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, and as such are not historical facts. Such statements may include, without limitation, those regarding Vertiv’s future financial performance or position, capital structure, indebtedness, business performance, strategy and plans, and expectations and objectives of Vertiv management for future operations and financial performance. These statements constitute projections, forecasts and forward-looking statements, and are not guarantees of results of performance. Vertiv cautions that such forward-looking statements are subject to numerous assumptions, risks and uncertainties, which may change over time. Such statements can be identified by the fact that they do not relate strictly to historical or current facts. When used in this Form 10-Q, words such as “anticipate,” “believe,” “continue,” “could,” “estimate,” “expect,” “intend,” “may,” “might,” “plan,” “possible,” “potential,” “predict,” “project,” “should,” “strive,” “would” and similar expressions may identify forward-looking statements, but the absence of these words does not mean that a statement is not forward-looking. When Vertiv discusses its strategies or plans, it is making projections, forecasts or forward-looking statements. Such statements are based on the beliefs of, as well as assumptions made by and information currently available to, Vertiv’s management at the time of such statements.
The forward-looking statements contained in this Form 10-Q are based on current expectations and beliefs concerning future developments and their potential effects on Vertiv. There can be no assurance that future developments affecting Vertiv will be those that Vertiv has anticipated. Forward-looking statements included in this Form 10-Q speak only as of the date of this filing or any earlier date specified for such statements. Vertiv undertakes no obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as may be required under applicable securities laws. All subsequent written or oral forward-looking statements attributable to Vertiv or persons acting on Vertiv’s behalf are qualified in their entirety by this Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements.
These forward-looking statements involve a number of risks and uncertainties (some of which are beyond Vertiv’s control) or other assumptions that may cause actual results or performance to be materially different from those expressed or implied by these forward-looking statements. Should one or more of these risks or uncertainties materialize, or should any of the assumptions prove incorrect, actual results may vary in material respects from those projected in these forward-looking statements. Vertiv has previously disclosed risk factors in its Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) reports, including those set forth in the 2023 Form 10-K. These risk factors and those identified elsewhere in this Form 10-Q, among others, could cause actual results to differ materially from historical performance and include, but are not limited to: risks relating to the continued growth of Vertiv’s customers’ markets; disruption of Vertiv’s customers’ orders or Vertiv’s customers’ markets; less favorable contractual terms with large customers; risks associated with governmental contracts; failure to mitigate risks associated with long-term fixed price contracts; competition in the infrastructure technologies industry; failure to obtain performance and other guarantees from financial institutions; failure to realize sales expected from Vertiv’s backlog of orders and contracts; failure to properly manage Vertiv’s supply chain or difficulties with third-party manufacturers; our ability to forecast changes in prices, including due to inflation in material, freight and/or labor costs, and timely implement measures necessary to mitigate the impacts of any such changes; risks associated with our significant backlog, including that the impacts of any measures taken to mitigate inflation will not be reflected in our financial statements immediately; failure to meet or anticipate technology changes; risks associated with information technology disruption or security; risks associated with the implementation and enhancement of information systems; failure to realize the expected benefit from any rationalization, restructuring and improvement efforts; Vertiv’s ability to realize cost savings in connection with Vertiv’s restructuring program; disruption of, or changes in, Vertiv’s independent sales representatives, distributors and original equipment manufacturers; changes to tax law; ongoing tax audits; costs or liabilities associated with product liability; the global scope of Vertiv’s operations; risks associated with Vertiv’s sales and operations in emerging markets; risks associated with future legislation and regulation of Vertiv’s customers’ markets both in the United States and abroad; Vertiv’s ability to comply with various laws and regulations and the costs associated with legal compliance; adverse outcomes to any legal claims and proceedings filed by or against Vertiv; risks associated with current and potential litigation or claims against Vertiv; Vertiv’s ability to protect or enforce its proprietary rights on which its
18

business depends; third party intellectual property infringement claims; liabilities associated with environmental, health and safety matters; failure to achieve environmental, social and governance goals; failure to realize the value of goodwill and intangible assets; exposure to fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates; exposure to increases in interest rates set by central banking authorities; failure to maintain internal controls over financial reporting; the unpredictability of Vertiv’s future operational results, including the ability to grow and manage growth profitably; potential net losses in future periods; Vertiv’s level of indebtedness and the ability to incur additional indebtedness; Vertiv’s ability to comply with the covenants and restrictions contained in our credit agreements, including restrictive covenants that restrict operational flexibility; Vertiv’s ability to comply with the covenants and restrictions contained in our credit agreements is not fully within our control; Vertiv’s ability to access funding through capital markets; the significant ownership and influence certain stockholders have over Vertiv; resales of Vertiv’s securities may cause volatility in the market price of our securities; Vertiv’s organizational documents contain provisions that may discourage unsolicited takeover proposals; Vertiv’s certificate of incorporation includes a forum selection clause, which could discourage or limit stockholders’ ability to make a claim against it; the ability of Vertiv’s subsidiaries to pay dividends; the ability of Vertiv to grow and manage growth profitably, maintain relationships with customers and suppliers and retain its management and key employees; Vertiv's ability to manage the succession of its key employees; and factors relating to the business, operations and financial performance of Vertiv and its subsidiaries, including: global economic weakness and uncertainty; Vertiv’s ability to attract, train and retain key members of its leadership team and other qualified personnel; the adequacy of Vertiv’s insurance coverage; a failure to benefit from future corporate transactions; risks associated with Vertiv’s limited history of operating as an independent company; and other risks and uncertainties indicated in Vertiv’s SEC reports or documents filed or to be filed with the SEC by Vertiv.
Overview
We are a global leader in the design, manufacturing and servicing of critical digital infrastructure technology that powers, cools, deploys, secures and maintains electronics that process, store and transmit data. We provide this technology to data centers, communication networks and commercial and industrial environments worldwide. We aim to help create a world where critical technologies always work, and where we empower the vital applications of the digital world.
Outlook and Trends
Below is a summary of trends and events that are currently affecting, or may in the future affect, our business, operations and short-term outlook:
Capacity Expansion: We have invested in capacity expansion to meet current and anticipated additional customer demand. For example, since acquiring E&I in late 2021, we have approximately doubled our manufacturing capacity for switchgear, busbar and integrated solutions by opening new facilities and adding production to existing facilities. Additionally, in order to support our thermal management activity, we opened a new manufacturing facility in Pune, India in 2024 to further support our manufacturing capacity. We anticipate continuing to invest in capacity globally to provide the geographic presence that our customers need, the ability to rapidly scale and to ensure resiliency.
Artificial Intelligence ("AI"): Increased maturity and adoption of AI and high-performance compute is currently impacting the data center industry driving technology innovation and could lead to increased demand. The Company has invested in developing new product, services, and solutions to serve this industry trend, is increasing capacity to support additional demand for AI infrastructure as necessary and we will continue to invest to support additional growth driven by AI.
Thermal Management Portfolio Expansion - Liquid Cooling: In December of 2023, we acquired CoolTera Ltd., an existing technology partner and provider of coolant distribution infrastructure for data center cooling technology. This acquisition further strengthens our advanced cooling technology, deep domain expertise, control systems, and testing for AI and other high density compute cooling requirements and adds to our existing thermal management portfolio.

Net income (loss)$(5.9)$50.3 $(56.2)(111.7)%
Net Sales
Net sales were $1,639.1 in the first three months of 2024, an increase of $118.0, or 7.8%, compared with $1,521.1 in the first three months of 2023. The increase in sales was primarily driven by higher sales volumes, partially offset by the negative impacts from foreign currency of $5.6. Product sales increased $86.9, which included negative impacts from foreign currency of $1.8. Services & spares sales increased $31.1, which included negative impacts from foreign currency of $3.8.
Excluding intercompany sales, net sales were $925.0 in the Americas, $332.3 in Asia Pacific and $381.8 in Europe, Middle East & Africa. Movements in net sales by segment and offering are each detailed in the “Business Segments” section below.
Cost of Sales
Cost of sales were $1,072.7 in the first three months of 2024, an increase of $47.1, or 4.6%, compared to the first three months of 2023. The increase in cost of sales was primarily driven by the impact of higher volumes and increased material, labor and logistics costs. Gross profit was $566.4 in the first three months of 2024, or 34.6% of sales, compared to $495.5, or 32.6% of sales, in the first three months of 2023. Margin increased primarily due to higher sales volumes and pricing actions exceeding inflationary costs.
Selling, General and Administrative Expenses ("SG&A")
SG&A expenses were $314.0 in the first three months of 2024, an increase of $5.3 compared to the first three months of 2023. The increase in SG&A was primarily driven by increased compensation costs and professional service fees. SG&A as a percentage of sales was 19.2% for the three months ended March 31, 2024 compared with 20.3% in the three months ended March 31, 2023.
Other Operating Expenses
The remaining other operating expenses include amortization of intangibles, restructuring costs, foreign currency (gain) loss, asset impairments, and other operating expense (income). These remaining other expenses were $49.8 for the first three months of 2024, which was a $6.7 decrease from the first three months of 2023. The decrease was primarily due to a $12.8 decrease in restructuring costs, offset by operating (income) from a one-time tax indemnification release in 2023.
20

Change in Fair Value of Warrant Liabilities
Change in fair value of warrant liabilities represents the mark-to-market fair value adjustments to the outstanding private placement warrants. The change in fair value of the outstanding warrant liability during the first three months of 2024 and 2023 resulted in a loss of $176.6 and a gain of $4.2, respectively. The change in fair value of these private warrants was the result of changes in market prices of our common stock and other observable inputs deriving the value of the financial instruments and the exercise of 5,266,666 of the private placement warrants in February 2023 by GS Sponsor LLC. As of both March 31, 2024 and 2023, there were 5,266,667 private placement warrants that remained outstanding.
Interest Expense
Interest expense, net, was $39.0 in the first three months of 2024 compared to $46.8 in the first three months of 2023. The $7.8 decrease is primarily due to a $4.2 decrease related to the ABL Revolving Credit Facility, due 2029, attributable to lower borrowings in 2024 and a $2.6 decrease due to net settlement payments on our interest rate swaps as described in “Note 9 — Financial Instruments and Risk Management” to the Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements. To the extent interest rates continue to fluctuate our interest expense will change, although we expect increases to be mitigated by our interest rate swaps.
Income Taxes
Income tax expense (benefit) was $(7.1) in the first three months of 2024 compared to $37.4 in the first three months of 2023. The $44.5 decrease is primarily due to the change in the fair value of warrant liabilities between the periods and increased tax benefits due to stock compensation activity. The effective rate in the first three months of 2024 was primarily influenced by the negative impacts of non-deductible changes in fair value of the warrant liabilities, discrete tax benefits related to stock compensation and the mix of income between our U.S. and non-U.S. operations. In the first three months of 2023, income tax expense was primarily influenced by the mix of income between our U.S. and non-U.S. operations, net of changes in valuation allowances, which is offset by the positive impact of non-taxable changes in fair value of the warrant liabilities.
Business Segments
The following is detail of business segment results for the three months ended March 31, 2024 compared to the three months ended March 31, 2023. Segment profitability is defined as operating profit (loss). Segment margin represents segment operating profit (loss) expressed as a percentage of segment net sales. For reconciliations of segment net sales and earnings to our consolidated results, see “Note 11 — Segment Information,” of our Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements. Segment net sales are presented excluding intercompany sales.

Americas net sales of $925.0 in the first three months of 2024 increased $62.7, or 7.3%, from the first three months of 2023. The increase in sales was primarily driven by higher sales volumes in Colocation and Hyperscale markets compared to prior year. Net sales increased in products by $42.2 and service & spares increased by $20.5 due to improved customer site availability. Americas net sales were positively impacted by foreign currency of approximately $1.5.
Operating profit (loss) in the first three months of 2024 was $187.8, an increase of $42.0 compared with the first three months of 2023. Margin increased primarily due to higher sales volumes and improved price realization exceeding inflationary costs.

Asia Pacific net sales were $332.3 in the first three months of 2024, an increase of $19.3, or 6.2%, from the first three months of 2023.

Operating profit (loss) in the first three months of 2024 was $30.4, an increase of $13.8 compared with the first three months of 2023. Margin increased primarily due to higher sales volumes, improved price realization exceeding inflationary costs and improved leverage on fixed costs.

Vertiv Corporate and Other
Corporate and other costs include costs associated with our headquarters located in Westerville, Ohio, as well as centralized global functions including Finance, Treasury, Risk Management, Strategy & Marketing, and Legal. Corporate and other costs were $39.9 and $33.0 in the first three months of 2024 and 2023, respectively. Corporate and other costs increased $6.9 compared to the first quarter of 2023. The first three months of 2023 included a one-time $7.8 benefit from the settlement of an escrow agreement.

Capital Resources and Liquidity
Our primary future cash needs relate to working capital, operating activities, capital spending, strategic investments and debt service.
Capital Expenditures: Our capital expenditures are primarily related to the maintenance of our long-term assets, as well as the investment in projects that support growth and innovation to further our enterprise strategy. Our capital expenditures (including capitalized software) were approximately $36.5 during the first three months of 2024. We expect to have capital expenditures (including capitalized software) of $175 to $200 for the full year 2024.
We have additional obligations as part of our ordinary course of business, beyond those committed for capital expenditures, which consist of debt obligations and other financial instruments. Refer below, as well as to “Note 5 — Debt” and “Note 13 — Commitments and Contingencies” of the Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements for more information. In addition, we have uncertain tax positions that are further discussed in “Note 6 — Income Taxes” of the Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements. We anticipate payments for lease obligations of approximately $60 for the full year 2024. We do not have any guarantees or other off-balance sheet financing arrangements, including variable interest entities, which could materially impact our financial condition or liquidity.
We, through our subsidiaries, are party to certain indebtedness arrangements, including the Senior Secured Notes due 2028, with an outstanding principal amount of $850.0 as of March 31, 2024 (the “Notes”), the Term Loan due 2027, with an outstanding principal amount of $2,112.8, as of March 31, 2024 (the “Term Loan”), and the ABL Revolving Credit Facility due 2029, extended earlier in 2024, providing up to $600.0 of revolving borrowings, for which none was outstanding as of March 31, 2024 (the “ABL Revolving Credit Facility” and collectively with the Term Loan, the “Senior Secured Credit Facilities”). See “Note 5 — Debt” of the Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements for more detailed discussion of the material terms of the Notes and the Senior Secured Credit Facilities.
At March 31, 2024, we had $275.8 in cash and cash equivalents, which includes amounts held outside of the U.S., primarily in Europe and Asia. Non-U.S. cash is generally available for repatriation without legal restrictions, subject to certain taxes, mainly withholding taxes. We are not asserting indefinite reinvestment of cash or outside basis for our non-U.S. subsidiaries due to the outstanding debt obligations in instances where alternative repatriation options, other than dividends, are not available. At March 31, 2024, Vertiv had $584.2 of availability (subject to customary borrowing base and other conditions) under the ABL Revolving Credit Facility, net of letters of credit outstanding in the aggregate principal amount of $15.8, and taking into account the borrowing base limitations set forth in the ABL Revolving Credit Facility.
We believe our current cash and cash equivalent levels, augmented by availability under the ABL Revolving Credit Facility, will provide adequate near-term liquidity for the next 12 months of independent operations, as well as the resources necessary to invest for growth in existing businesses and manage our capital structure on a short- and long-term basis. We expect to continue to opportunistically access the capital and financing markets from time to time. Access to capital and the availability of financing on acceptable terms in the future will be affected by many factors, including our credit rating, economic conditions, and the overall liquidity of capital markets. There can be no assurance that we will continue to have access to the capital and financing markets on acceptable terms.

Net Cash provided by (used for) Operating Activities
Net cash provided by operating activities was $137.5 in the first three months of 2024, a $95.5 increase in cash generation compared to the first three months of 2023. Net loss from operations of $(5.9) included $249.0 of net non-cash expense items, consisting of depreciation and amortization of $68.7, a loss on the change in fair value of warrant liabilities of $176.6, non-cash stock-based compensation expense of $9.2, amortization of debt discount and issuance costs of $2.1, offset by deferred taxes of $7.6. Trade working capital used $99.7 in the first three months of 2024 in comparison to $86.9 in the first three months of 2023.
23

Net Cash used for Investing Activities
Net cash used for investing activities was $36.5 in the first three months of 2024 compared to net cash used for investing activities of $17.4 in the first three months of 2023. The increased use of cash over the comparable period was primarily driven by decreased proceeds from the disposition of property, plant and equipment of $12.4, increased capital expenditures of $8.0, offset by a decrease in investments of capitalized software of $1.3.
Net Cash provided by (used for) Financing Activities
Net cash used for financing activities was $603.1 in the first three months of 2024 compared to $18.8 provided by financing activities in the first three months of 2023. The change was primarily the result of $599.9 of share repurchases of common stock and $9.3 dividend payments, offset by year-over-year net repayments of $10.0 on the ABL Revolving Credit Facility in the first three months of 2023, $9.3 increase in net cash received associated with equity-based compensation activity, and $5.6 decrease of repayments on the Term Loan in the first three months of 2024.
Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates
The preparation of financial statements and related disclosures in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the U.S. requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements, and income and expenses during the periods reported. Actual results could materially differ from those estimates. The preceding discussion and analysis of our consolidated results of operations and financial condition should be read in conjunction with our Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements included elsewhere in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q. The 2023 financial statements, as part of the 2023 Form 10-K, includes additional information about us, our operations, our financial condition, our critical accounting policies and accounting estimates, and should be read in conjunction with this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q. Our significant accounting policies are described in “Note 1 - Description of Business and Summary of Significant Accounting Policies” of the 2023 Form 10-K.
ITEM 3. QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK
There has been no material changes in our quantitative and qualitative market risk disclosures from those described in our 2023 Form 10-K.
ITEM 4. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES
Disclosure Controls and Procedures
The Company maintains (a) disclosure controls and procedures (as such term is defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Exchange Act), and (b) internal control over financial reporting (as such term is defined in Rules 13a-15(f) and 15d-15(f) under the Exchange Act).
The Company’s management, with the participation of its Chief Executive Officer and its Chief Financial Officer, conducted an evaluation of the effectiveness of the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures as of March 31, 2024 (the end of the period covered by this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q). Based upon that evaluation, the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer have concluded that, as of March 31, 2024, the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures were effective in ensuring that material information for the Company, including its consolidated subsidiaries, required to be disclosed by the Company in reports that it files or submits under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms, and that it is accumulated and communicated to management, including our principal executive and financial officers, or persons performing similar functions, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.
Changes in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting
There have not been any changes in our internal control over financial reporting (as such term is defined in Rules 13a-15(f) and 15d-15(f) under the Exchange Act) during the quarter ended March 31, 2024, that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, internal control over financial reporting.

PART II. OTHER INFORMATION
ITEM 1. LEGAL PROCEEDINGS
With the exception of the below, the Company is not a party to any material, pending legal proceedings or claims at March 31, 2024. From time-to-time, the Company may be a party to, or otherwise involved in, legal proceedings arising in the normal course of business. The nature of the Company’s business ordinarily results in a certain amount of pending as well as threatened claims, litigation, investigations, regulatory and legal and administrative cases, matters and proceedings, all of which are considered incidental to the normal conduct of business. When the Company determines that it has meritorious defenses to the claims asserted, the Company vigorously defends itself. The Company considers settlement of cases when, in management’s judgment, it is in the best interests of both the Company and its shareholders to do so.
On May 3, 2022, a putative securities class action, In re Vertiv Holdings Co Securities Litigation, 22-cv-3572, was filed against Vertiv, certain of the Company’s officers and directors, and other defendants in the Southern District of New York. Plaintiffs filed an amended complaint on September 16, 2022. The amended complaint alleges that certain of the Company’s public statements were materially false and/or misleading with respect to inflationary and supply chain pressures and pricing issues, and asserts claims under Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and Sections 11, 12(a)(2), and 15 of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended. These claims are asserted on behalf of a putative class of all persons and entities that (i) purchased Vertiv securities between February 24, 2021 and February 22, 2022; and/or (ii) purchased Vertiv securities in or traceable to the November 4, 2021 secondary public offering by a selling stockholder pursuant to a resale registration statement. On January 31, 2024, the Court issued an order dismissing the claims under Sections 11, 12(a)(2), and 15 of the Securities Act. The motion to dismiss the claims under Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Exchange Act remains pending.
On June 9, 2023, two Vertiv shareholders, Matthew Sullivan and Jose Karlo Ocampo Avenido, brought a derivative lawsuit, Sullivan v. Johnson, et al., C.A. No. 2023-0608, against Vertiv (as nominal defendant only) and certain of the Company’s directors and officers in Delaware Court of Chancery for breach of fiduciary duty. The complaint alleges that certain of the named directors and officers caused the Company to issue materially false and/or misleading public statements with respect to inflationary and supply chain pressures and pricing issues, and that the Company suffered damages as a result.
Defendants believe they have meritorious defenses against the plaintiffs' claims in these lawsuits, which are at the preliminary stages, but the Company is unable at this time to predict the outcome of these disputes or the amount of any cost associated with their resolution.
In November 2023, following the filing of the actions described above, the Company received a subpoena from the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) and a parallel request for documents from the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York, which relate to the allegations made in the class action complaint and derivative action. The Company is actively responding to these matters.
In January 2024, the Mexican tax administration service, the Servicio de Administracion Tributaria (the "SAT"), initiated a process to suspend the importer registration of one of the Company's wholly owned Mexico subsidiaries, Tecnología del Pacífico S.A. de C.V. (“TDP”), in connection with a contested customs tax audit for the period April 2016 to February 2018. SAT claimed its basis for the suspension was a failure by TDP to provide sufficient evidence of the export of goods temporarily imported at required levels under Mexico's Manufacturing, Maquila and Export Services Industries Program ("IMMEX Program"). The Company and TDP has disputed SAT’s position throughout the customs tax audit, through the filing of various petitions and appeals with appropriate documentation evidencing the complete and timely export of the goods temporarily imported during the audit period. TDP has accepted a proposal from SAT to close the audit by making payments and fees totaling approximately $10.1 which has been recorded in “Accrued expenses and other liabilities” on the Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets as of December 31, 2023. The Company intends to seek reimbursement of this amount as an undue payment in the near future from SAT, for which the outcome is currently unknown and no receivable has been established. Furthermore, the Company remains subject to other customs tax audits concerning other facilities located within Mexico. While we cannot predict with certainty the outcome of other assessments, based on currently known information, we believe a risk of loss, if any, is not currently estimable. Accordingly, no further reserve for loss contingency has been recorded in the Company's financial statements as of March 31, 2024 related to these other matters. The accepted proposal was paid to SAT in the first quarter of 2024.
The Company is unable at this time to predict the outcome of these matters, including whether any proceedings may be instituted in connection with the government inquiries, or the amount of any cost associated with their resolution except as otherwise noted above.
25

At March 31, 2024, other than as described above, there were no known contingent liabilities (including guarantees, taxes and other claims) that management believes were or will be material in relation to the Company’s Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements, nor were there any material commitments outside the normal course of business.

The stock repurchase program does not obligate the Company to repurchase any specific dollar amount or number of shares of Class A common stock and the Board's authorization of the program may be modified, suspended or discontinued at any time.
