Overview
Genuine Parts Company is a service organization engaged in the global
distribution of automotive replacement parts and industrial parts. We have a
long tradition of growth dating back to 1928, the year we were founded in
Atlanta, Georgia. The Company conducts business in North America, Europe and
Australasia from approximately 3,600 locations. At Genuine Parts Company, our
mission is to be a world-class service organization and the employer of choice,
supplier of choice, valued customer, good corporate citizen and investment of
choice. Our strategic financial objectives are intended to align with our
mission and drive value for all our stakeholders. Our strategic financial
objectives include: (1) top line revenue growth; (2) improved operating margin;
(3) a strong balance sheet and cash flows; and (4) effective capital allocation.
The Company's Automotive Parts Group operated in the U.S., Canada, Mexico,
France, the U.K., Germany, Poland, the Netherlands, Belgium, Australia and New
Zealand
as of June 30, 2020, and accounted for 64% of total revenues for the six
months ended June 30, 2020. Our Industrial Parts Group operated in the U.S.,
Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, Indonesia and Singapore. The Industrial
Parts Group
accounted for 36% of the Company's total revenues for the six months
ended June 30, 2020. During the six months ended June 30, 2020, the Company
completed the divestiture of its Business Products Group and has accounted for
this segment as discontinued operations for the periods presented.
COVID-19 Pandemic
The COVID-19 outbreak, which was declared a pandemic by the World Health
Organization
("WHO") on March 11, 2020, continues to evolve rapidly. Our deepest
and sincere thoughts go out to all affected by COVID-19, as well as the
dedicated healthcare workers and first responders who are on the front lines for
all our citizens.
Overall, our business segments continue to face many uncertainties. The results
of operations for the six months ended June 30, 2020 are not necessarily
indicative of results for the entire year. The Company's operations are
vulnerable to the reduced economic activity caused by the COVID-19 outbreak,
which led many governments to put in place temporary social distancing and
shelter-in-place mandates in late March and early April. As a result, our
business segments experienced slowing sales trends as we entered the second
quarter. Sales results sequentially improved throughout the second quarter of
2020 as markets reopened and governments eased restrictions.

The extent to which the COVID-19 pandemic impacts the Company will depend on
numerous factors and future developments that we cannot predict, including the
severity of the virus; the occurrence of a "second wave" or additional spikes;
the duration of the outbreak; governmental, business or other actions taken in
response to the pandemic; and impacts on our supply chain, our ability to keep
operating locations open, and on customer demand. While the negative impact on
our business operations cannot be reasonably estimated at this time, our teams
are preparing for multiple scenarios to ensure we continue to protect our
employees while also keeping our operations up and running to serve our
customers.
During the first quarter we created a dedicated COVID-19 Taskforce and added
enhanced protocols in response to COVID-19, including implementing many of the
recommendations and requirements issued by the Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention
, WHO, and local, state and national health authorities, to protect
our employees, customers, suppliers and communities.
As of June 30, 2020, substantially all operations are open for business. Our
supply chain partners have been very supportive and they continue to do their
part to ensure our service levels to our customers remain strong. We remain in
constant communication with our employees regarding changing conditions and
protocol. Based on the length and severity of COVID-19, we may experience
continued volatility in customer demand and supply chain disruption. We will
continue to evaluate the nature and extent of these potential impacts to our
business, consolidated results of operations, segment results, liquidity and
capital resources.
For further information regarding the impact of COVID-19 on the Company, please
see "Results of Operations," "Financial Condition," "Liquidity and Capital
Resources," "Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting," item 1A,
"Risk Factors," and item 2, "Issuer Repurchase of Equity Securities" in this
report, which is incorporated herein by reference.

Key Business Metrics
We consider comparable sales, daily sales and number of miles driven to be key
business metrics because management has evaluated its results of operations
using these metrics and believes that these key indicators provide additional
perspective and insights when analyzing the operating performance of the Company
from period to period and trends in its historical operating results. These
metrics should not be considered superior to, as a substitute for or as an
alternative to, and should be considered in conjunction with, the GAAP financial
measures presented in this report.
Comparable Sales
Comparable sales (also called organic sales or core sales) refer to
period-over-period comparisons of our net sales excluding the impact of
acquisitions, divestitures and foreign currency. The Company considers this
metric useful to investors because it provides greater transparency into
management's view and assessment of the Company's core ongoing operations. This
is a metric that is widely used by analysts, investors and competitors in our
industry, although our calculation of the metric may not be comparable to
similar measures disclosed by other companies, because not all companies and
analysts calculate this metric in the same manner.
Daily Sales
Daily sales is a key metric that represents the amounts invoiced to the
Company's customers each day. Daily sales do not represent GAAP-based sales
because, among other things, invoices are not always generated at the same time
goods and services are delivered to customers and the amounts do not include
adjustments for estimates of returns, rebates or other forms of variable
consideration. Management uses this metric to monitor demand trends at each of
its subsidiaries throughout each month for the purposes of monitoring
performance against forecasts and to make operational decisions. The Company
considers this metric useful to investors because it provides greater
transparency into management's view and assessment of the Company's core ongoing
operations. The calculation of this metric may not be comparable to similar
measures disclosed by other companies, because not all companies and analysts
calculate this metric in the same manner.
Number of Miles Driven
The Company considers the number of miles driven, which is an industry-generated
metric, to be a key metric because it influences the demand for repair and
maintenance products sold within the automotive aftermarket. We believe
including this metric is useful to investors because it provides greater
transparency into management's view and assessment of trends in the Automotive
Parts Group
.
Results of Operations
Overview
The Company has remained substantially open during the COVID-19 pandemic, which
slowed mobility and overall economic activity. Despite the challenges of these
unprecedented business conditions, our North American and Australasian
automotive operations operated well and reported improved profit margins. In
addition, our Industrial Parts Group maintained a flat operating margin with the
prior year quarter. The Company improved its total gross margin in the quarter
and executed on a number of accelerated cost savings initiatives to more
effectively leverage our cost structure. As a result of COVID-19 and its
negative impact on demand, the Company has experienced and may continue to
experience a decrease in volume-based buying incentives and increased freight,
insurance, IT and cybersecurity costs. In addition, primarily due to the
significant impact of COVID-19 on the financial performance of our European
reporting unit, the Company recognized a goodwill impairment charge of $506.7
million
. These trends and uncertainties may persist and impact future results.
Sales
Sales for the three months ended June 30, 2020 were $3.8 billion, a 14.2%
decrease as compared to $4.5 billion in the same period of the prior year
period. The decrease in sales is attributable to a 13.7% decline in comparable
sales driven primarily by COVID-19 and related government actions, a 4.1% impact
from divestitures and the net impact of foreign currency and other of 0.6%.
These items were partially offset by a 4.2% benefit from acquisitions. Sales for
the six months ended June 30, 2020 were $7.9 billion, a 9.2% decrease as
compared to $8.7 billion in the same period of the prior year. The decline in
sales is due to a 9.0% comparable sales decrease due primarily to decreased
demand caused by COVID-19, a 4.5% impact from divestitures and a 0.7% impact
from foreign currency and other. These items were partially offset by a 5.0%
positive impact from acquisitions.
Sales for the Automotive Parts Group decreased 10.1% for the three months ended
June 30, 2020, as compared to the same period in the prior year. This group's
revenue decrease for the three months ended June 30, 2020 consisted of an
approximate 12.6% decrease in comparable sales driven primarily by COVID-19 and
related government actions and the net impact of unfavorable foreign currency
and other of 0.7%. These items were partially offset by a 3.2% benefit from
acquisitions. This

group's 6.0% revenue decrease for the six months ended June 30, 2020 consisted
of an approximate 8.9% decrease in comparable sales, a 1.0% net unfavorable
impact from foreign currency and other and a 0.3% impact from the sale of Grupo
Auto Todo in March of 2019. These items were partially offset by a 4.2% benefit
from acquisitions.
Sales for the Industrial Parts Group decreased 21.1% for the three months ended
June 30, 2020, as compared to the same period in 2019. The decrease in this
group's revenues reflects an approximate 16.7% decrease in comparable sales
driven primarily by COVID-19 and related government actions, a 10.9% impact from
the sale of EIS, which was sold in the third quarter of 2019, and a slightly
unfavorable foreign currency impact. These declines were slightly offset by a
6.7% benefit from acquisitions. This group's 14.5% sales decrease for the six
months ended June 30, 2020 reflects a 9.9% decrease in comparable sales, an
11.7% impact from the sale of EIS and a slight impact from foreign currency.
This decrease was partially offset by a 7.2% benefit from acquisitions.
Cost of Goods Sold and Operating Expenses
Cost of goods sold for the three months ended June 30, 2020 was $2.5 billion, a
14.9% decrease from $3.0 billion for the same period in 2019. As a percentage of
net sales, cost of goods sold was 66.2% for the three months ended June 30,
2020
, as compared to 66.7% in the same three month period of 2019. Cost of goods
sold for the six months ended June 30, 2020 was $5.2 billion, a 10.3% decrease
from $5.8 billion for the same period in 2019. As a percentage of net sales,
cost of goods sold was 66.2% for the six months ended June 30, 2020, as compared
to 67.0% in the same six month period of 2019. The decrease in cost of goods
sold for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020 primarily relates to the
impact of divestitures and the overall decrease in sales volume due to COVID-19
for these periods as compared to the same three and six month period of the
prior year. The resulting improvement in gross margin, which we have reported
for 11 consecutive quarters, is attributable to the favorable impact of
divestitures as well as the acquisitions of higher gross margin businesses.
These items, as well as strategic category management initiatives including
pricing and global sourcing actions and favorable product mix shifts were
partially offset by a decrease in supplier incentives due to lower purchasing
volumes. The Company's cost of goods sold includes the total cost of merchandise
sold, including freight expenses associated with moving merchandise from our
supplier to our distribution centers, retail stores and branches, as well as
supplier volume incentives and inventory adjustments. Gross profit as a
percentage of net sales may fluctuate based on (i) changes in merchandise costs
and related supplier volume incentives or pricing, (ii) variations in product
and customer mix, (iii) price changes in response to competitive pressures, (iv)
physical inventory and LIFO adjustments, (v) changes in foreign currency
exchange rates, and (vi) the impact of tariffs. Tariffs did not have a material
impact in the periods presented.
Total operating expenses increased to $1.6 billion for the three months ended
June 30, 2020 as compared to $1.2 billion for the same three month period in
2019. As a percentage of net sales, operating expenses increased to 41.4% as
compared to 26.8% in the same three month period of the previous year. For the
six months ended June 30, 2020, these expenses totaled $2.8 billion as compared
to $2.4 billion for the same six month period in 2019. As a percentage of net
sales, operating expenses increased to 35.4% as compared to 27.2% in the same
six month period of the previous year.
The increase in total operating expenses as a percentage of net sales for the
three and six months ended June 30, 2020 is primarily related to the goodwill
impairment charge related to our European reporting unit and the restructuring,
transaction and other costs and income recorded thus far in 2020. Additionally,
the Company continues to experience the effects of rising costs in areas such as
insurance, IT and cyber-security and its ability to leverage its expenses was
negatively impacted by lower comparable sales relative to the prior year. To
offset these trends, the Company is focused on the execution of ongoing cost
control initiatives, including its $100 million cost savings plan announced in
2019. In association with this plan we achieved $40 million in savings in the
second quarter of 2020 for a total of $70 million in expense reductions through
June 30, 2020. In addition, the Company benefited from accelerated cost
reduction initiatives implemented in association with the onset of COVID-19.
Combined, these initiatives produced cost savings in payroll, freight, facility,
legal and professional costs, among others, of approximately $200 million in the
second quarter of 2020. Included in the savings are approximately $40 million of
temporary government subsidies received by certain of our foreign operations.
The Company's operating expenses are substantially comprised of compensation and
benefit-related costs for personnel. Other major expense categories include
facility occupancy costs for headquarters, distribution centers and retail
store/branch operations, insurance costs, accounting, legal and professional
services, technology and digital costs, transportation and delivery costs, and
travel and advertising. Management's ongoing cost control measures in these
areas have served to improve the Company's overall cost structure. The Company's
recent acquisitions have lower costs of goods sold and higher levels of
operating costs as compared to the Company's other businesses; however, the
operating profit margins generally remain consistent.

Segment Profit
Segment profit decreased to $327.8 million for the three months ended June 30,
2020
, compared to $365.1 million for the same three month period of the prior
year, a decrease of 10.2%. Segment profit margin was 8.6% as compared to 8.2% in
the same three month period of 2019. The increase in segment profit margin for
the three months ended June 30, 2020 reflects the improvement in gross margin
and significant cost savings relative to the prior year. For the six months
ended June 30, 2020, segment profit decreased to $584.3 million compared to
$665.7 million for the same six month period of the prior year, a decrease of
12.2%. Segment profit margin was 7.4% as compared to 7.6% in the same six month
period of 2019, driven by reduced sales volume as a result of COVID-19 and its
impact on leverage prior to the Company's implementation of its accelerated cost
initiatives in the second quarter of 2020.
As more fully discussed in our 2019 Form 10-K, in the fourth quarter of 2019 the
Company began to implement certain restructuring actions across its subsidiaries
under the 2019 Cost Savings Plan, primarily targeted at simplifying
organizational structures and distribution networks. We believe that these
actions, coupled with our ongoing focus on driving top line sales growth and
accelerated cost initiatives in response to COVID-19, will continue to create
value for our stakeholders.
The Automotive Parts Group's segment profit decreased 4.3% in the three months
ended June 30, 2020 as compared to the same period of 2019, and its segment
profit margin was 8.8% as compared to 8.2% in the same period of the previous
year. This improvement in segment profit margin reflects the strong operating
results in our North American and Australasian businesses, driven by significant
cost reductions and the benefit of government subsidies in our international
businesses. For the six months ended June 30, 2020, the Automotive Parts Group's
segment profit decreased approximately 11.5% and the segment profit margin was
7.1% as compared to 7.6% in the same six month period of 2019. The decrease in
segment profit margin for the six months is primarily due to the deleveraging of
expenses due to lower automotive sales volumes, although the Canadian and
Australasian operations have operated well and show improved segment profit
margins for the six months in 2020 relative to 2019.
The Industrial Parts Group's segment profit decreased 20.1% in the three months
ended June 30, 2020 as compared to the same three month period of 2019, and the
segment profit margin for this group was 8.2% compared to 8.1% for the same
period of the previous year. Segment profit for the Industrial Parts Group
decreased 13.4% in the six months ended June 30, 2020 as compared to the same
six month period of 2019, and the segment profit margin for this group improved
to 7.9% compared to 7.8% for the same period of the previous year. The improved
segment profit margins for both periods reflect the growing efficiencies in
Industrial Parts Group's operating structure as well as the positive impact of
acquisitions and the sale of EIS.
Goodwill Impairment
Due to several factors that coalesced in the second quarter of 2020 we performed
an interim impairment test as of May 31, 2020 for our European reporting unit
and recorded a goodwill impairment charge of $506.7 million. These factors
primarily resulted from the ongoing market volatility and uncertainty caused by
the COVID-19 pandemic, which have extended into the second quarter and have
impacted several critical impairment testing assumptions including weighted
average cost of capital and market multiples, and near-term revenue and
operating margin projections for the reporting unit. Refer to the goodwill and
other intangible assets footnote within the notes to the condensed consolidated
financial statements for additional information. If there are sustained declines
in macroeconomic or business conditions in future periods, including as a result
of the continued COVID-19 pandemic, affecting the projected earnings and cash
flows at our reporting units, among other things, there can be no assurance that
goodwill at one or more reporting units may not be impaired. However, as of
June 30, 2020, we determined that there were no other indicators that goodwill
was impaired at any of our other reporting units.
Income Taxes
The Company's effective income tax rate was negative 19.4% for the three months
ended June 30, 2020, compared to 25.8% for the same three month period in 2019.
The effective income tax rate was negative 67.7% for the six months ended June
30, 2020
, compared to 25.1% for the same period in 2019. The rate decrease is
primarily due to the non-deductible goodwill impairment charge and certain
transaction and other costs.
Net (Loss) Income
For the three months ended June 30, 2020, the Company recorded consolidated net
loss from continuing operations of $363.5 million, a decrease of 273.5% as
compared to consolidated net income from continuing operations of $209.5 million
in the same three month period of the prior year. On a per share diluted basis,
net loss was $2.52, a decrease of 276.2% as compared to net income per diluted
share of $1.43 for the same three month period of 2019. For the six months ended
June 30, 2020, the Company recorded consolidated net loss from continuing
operations of $241.2 million, a decrease of 167.9% as compared to consolidated
net income from continuing operations of $355.2 million in the same six month
period of the prior year. On a per share diluted basis, net loss from continuing
operations was $1.67, a decrease of 169.0% as compared to net income per diluted
24
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Table of Contents
share of $2.42 in the same six month period of 2019. The decrease in income for
these periods was primarily driven by reduced sales volume as a result of
COVID-19.
During the three and six months ended June 30, 2020, the Company incurred $555.5
million
and $553.8 million, respectively, of adjustments. These adjustments
include a goodwill impairment charge of $506.7 million related to our European
reporting unit and also represents restructuring costs, realized currency losses
and transaction and other costs and income. Transaction and other costs
primarily include incremental costs associated with certain divestitures and
COVID-19, slightly offset by income from the SPR Fire insurance proceeds. Refer
to the acquisitions, divestitures and discontinued operations footnote and
commitments and contingencies footnote for more information.
For the three months ended June 30, 2020, before the impact of goodwill
impairment, realized currency losses, restructuring, transaction and other costs
and insurance proceeds related to the SPR fire, the Company's adjusted net
income from continuing operations was $190.5 million, a decrease of 11.5% as
compared to adjusted net income from continuing operations of $215.4 million in
the same three month period of the prior year. On a per share basis, adjusted
net income from continuing operations was $1.32 for the three months ended June
30, 2020
, a decrease of 10.2% as compared to $1.47 for the same three month
period of 2019. For the six months ended June 30, 2020, before giving effect to
the adjustments discussed above, adjusted net income from continuing operations
was $307.3 million, a decrease of 20.7% for the same six month period of 2019.
On a per share diluted basis, adjusted net income from continuing operations was
$2.12 for the six months ended June 30, 2020, a decrease of 19.4% as compared to
$2.63 for the same six month period of the prior year. Each of adjusted net
(loss) income from continuing operations and adjusted diluted net (loss) income
from continuing operations per common share is a non-GAAP measure (see table
below for reconciliations to the most directly comparable GAAP measures).
The following table sets forth a reconciliation of net (loss) income from
continuing operations and diluted net (loss) income from continuing operations
per common share to adjusted net (loss) income from continuing operations and
adjusted diluted net (loss) income from continuing operations per common share
to account for the impact of these adjustments. The Company believes that the
presentation of adjusted net (loss) income from continuing operations and
adjusted diluted net (loss) income from continuing operations per common share,
which are not calculated in accordance with GAAP, when considered together with
the corresponding GAAP financial measures and the reconciliations to those
measures, provide meaningful supplemental information to both management and
investors that is indicative of the Company's core operations. The Company
considers these metrics useful to investors because they provide greater
transparency into management's view and assessment of the Company's ongoing
operating performance by removing items management believes are not
representative of our continuing operations and may distort our longer-term
operating trends. We believe these measures are useful and enhance the
comparability of our results from period to period and with our competitors, as
well as show ongoing results from operations distinct from items that are
infrequent or not associated with the Company's core operations. The Company
does not, nor does it suggest investors should, consider such non-GAAP financial
measures, as superior to, in isolation from, or as a substitute for, GAAP
financial information.

Financial Condition
The Company's cash balance of $983.8 million at June 30, 2020 increased $706.8
million
, or 255.2%, from December 31, 2019. For the six months ended June 30,
2020
, the Company had net cash provided by operating activities of $920.7
million
, net cash provided by investing activities of $299.8 million and net
cash used in financing activities of $527.4 million. The cash provided by
operating activities was primarily driven by entry into the A/R Sales Agreement
to sell receivables, which generated $500 million in operating cash flows, and
the effective management of our working capital. The investing activities
consisted primarily $389.6 million proceeds from divestitures and the sale of
property, plant and equipment, slightly offset by $74.4 million for capital
expenditures and $15.4 million for acquisitions and other investing activities.
The financing activities
26
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Table of Contents
consisted primarily of $197.2 million net payments on debt, $225.3 million for
dividends paid to the Company's shareholders and $95.7 million paid for share
repurchases.
Accounts receivable decreased $616.9 million, or 25.3%, from December 31, 2019
primarily due to entering into the A/R Sales Agreement. As we continue to
operate through 2020 and this uncertain environment, we will be closely
monitoring our collection trends. However, collection trends are currently
meeting our expectations and we have observed that many of our small and
medium-sized customers in the U.S. and international markets are receiving
various forms of government assistance. Inventory decreased $92.1 million, or
2.7%, and accounts payable decreased $203.0 million, or 5.1% from December 31,
2019
. Total debt of $3.2 billion at June 30, 2020 decreased $209.2 million, or
6.1%, from December 31, 2019.
We continue to negotiate extended payment dates with our suppliers. Our current
payment terms with the majority of our suppliers range from 30 to 360 days.
Several global financial institutions offer voluntary supply chain finance
("SCF") programs which enable our suppliers (generally those that grant extended
terms), at their sole discretion, to sell their receivables from the Company to
these financial institutions on a non-recourse basis at a rate that takes
advantage of our credit rating and may be beneficial to them. The SCF program is
primarily available to suppliers of goods and services included in cost of goods
sold in our condensed consolidated statements of comprehensive income. The
Company and our suppliers agree on commercial terms for the goods and services
we procure, including prices, quantities and payment terms, regardless of
whether the supplier elects to participate in the SCF program. The suppliers
sell goods or services, as applicable, to the Company and they issue the
associated invoices to the Company based on the agreed-upon contractual terms.
Then, if they are participating in the SCF program, our suppliers, at their sole
discretion, determine which invoices, if any, they want to sell to the financial
institutions. In turn, we direct payment to the financial institutions, rather
than the suppliers, for the invoices sold to the financial institutions. No
guarantees are provided by the Company or any of our subsidiaries on third-party
performance under the SCF program; however, the Company guarantees the payment
by our subsidiaries to the financial institutions participating in the SCF
program for the applicable invoices. We have no economic interest in a
supplier's decision to participate in the SCF program, and we have no direct
financial relationship with the financial institutions, as it relates to the SCF
program. Accordingly, amounts due to our suppliers that elected to participate
in the SCF program are included in the line item accounts payable in our
condensed consolidated balance sheets. All activity related to amounts due to
suppliers that elected to participate in the SCF program is reflected in cash
flows from operating activities in our condensed consolidated statement of cash
flows. We have been informed by the financial institutions that as of June 30,
2020
and December 31, 2019, suppliers elected to sell $1.8 billion and $1.8
billion
, respectively, of our outstanding payment obligations to the financial
institutions. The amount settled through the SCF program was $1.3 billion for
the six months ended June 30, 2020.
Liquidity and Capital Resources
We have taken actions and will continue to take actions intended to increase our
cash position and preserve financial flexibility in light of current uncertainty
in the global markets resulting from COVID-19. These actions include the
previously negotiated covenant amendments to our credit arrangements due to
macro uncertainty and evaluating alternative forms of liquidity to enhance
credit capacity, reducing our planned capital expenditures for 2020
(specifically deferring our growth related capital spending), temporarily
suspending our share repurchase program, and limiting merger and acquisition
activity to select "bolt-on" acquisitions. Additionally, we are taking
precautionary measures to conserve liquidity including, but not limited to,
reducing our inventory levels and managing replenishment volumes to adjust to
the new level of market demand and to the extent available, we are delaying tax
payments as allowed by governmental authorities. We have a low level of capital
expenditures related to maintenance items, which provides the flexibility to
decrease spending as needed to further preserve funds.
We believe that we have sufficient liquidity to manage through the current
market disruption caused by COVID-19. We ended the quarter with $2.6 billion of
total liquidity (comprising $1.6 billion availability on the revolving credit
facility and $1.0 billion of cash and cash equivalents). From time to time, the
Company may enter into other credit facilities or financing arrangements to
provide additional liquidity and to manage against foreign currency risk. The
Company currently believes that the existing lines of credit and cash generated
from operations will be sufficient to fund anticipated operations for the
foreseeable future.
On April 6, 2020, the Board of Directors declared a regular quarterly cash
dividend of seventy-nine cents ($0.79) per share on the Company's common stock.
At this time, we expect to continue to pay dividends in the ordinary course.
On May 1, 2020, the Company entered into an amendment to each of the Amended and
Restated Syndicated Credit Facility Agreement and the Notes Purchase Agreement,
each dated as of October 30, 2017, to provide additional covenant flexibility on
account of the COVID-19 pandemic. In consideration of the increased covenant
flexibility, the Company agreed to certain interest rate increases under these
facilities.
On May 29, 2020, we entered into an agreement (the "A/R Sales Agreement") to
sell short-term receivables from certain customer trade accounts to an
unaffiliated financial institution. The A/R Sales Agreement has a one year term,
which the
27
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Table of Contents
Company intends to renew each year. The terms of the A/R Sales Agreement limit
the balance of receivables sold to approximately $500 million at any point in
time.
In addition, we qualify and are taking advantage of certain employer payroll tax
credits and the deferral of certain tax payments that are allowed under the
Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act.
Although we expect our borrowing costs to increase in the near term as a result
of credit market disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, we expect to be
able to continue to borrow funds at reasonable rates over the long term. At
June 30, 2020, the Company's total average cost of debt was 2.85%, and the
Company remained in compliance with all covenants connected with its borrowings,
such covenants include, among others, a financial covenant to maintain a certain
leverage ratio of consolidated debt to consolidated EBITDA under our credit
facility.
Any failure to comply with our debt covenants or restrictions could result in a
default under our financing arrangements or could require us to obtain waivers
from our lenders for failure to comply with these restrictions. The occurrence
of a default that remains uncured or the inability to secure a necessary consent
or waiver could create cross defaults under other debt arrangements and have a
material adverse effect on our business, financial condition, results of
operations and cash flows.
Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures about Market Risk
For quantitative and qualitative disclosures about market risk, refer to
"Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk" in Item 7A of Part
II of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019. Our
exposure to market risk has not changed materially since December 31, 2019.
Item 4. Controls and Procedures
As of the end of the period covered by this report, an evaluation was performed
under the supervision and with the participation of the Company's management,
including the Chief Executive Officer ("CEO") and Chief Financial Officer
("CFO"), of the effectiveness of the Company's disclosure controls and
procedures. Based on that evaluation, the Company's CEO and CFO concluded that
the Company's disclosure controls and procedures were effective as of the end of
the period covered by this report to provide reasonable assurance that
information required to be disclosed by the Company in the reports that it files
or furnishes under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, is recorded,
processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the
SEC's rules and forms and that such information is accumulated and communicated
to the Company's management, including the CEO and CFO, as appropriate, to allow
timely decisions regarding required disclosure.
Changes in internal control over financial reporting
There have been no changes in the Company's internal control over financial
reporting identified in connection with the evaluation required by paragraph (d)
of Rule 13a-15 of the SEC that occurred during the Company's last quarter ended
June 30, 2020 that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to
materially affect, the Company's internal control over financial reporting. As a
result of COVID-19, certain members of our workforce shifted to a primarily work
from home environment beginning in March 2020. We took precautionary actions to
re-evaluate and refine our financial reporting process to provide reasonable
assurance that we could report our financial results accurately and timely, and
we will continue to evaluate the impact of any related changes to our internal
control over financial reporting.
