H.B. FULLER COMPANY AND SUBSIDIARIES

Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements

(Amounts in thousands, except share and per share amounts)

(Unaudited)

  

Note 1: Basis of Presentation

 

The accompanying unaudited interim Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements of H.B. Fuller Company and Subsidiaries have been prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles for interim financial information and the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information necessary for a fair presentation of results of operations, comprehensive income, financial position, and cash flows in conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles. In our opinion, the unaudited interim Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements reflect all adjustments of a normal recurring nature considered necessary for the fair presentation of the results for the periods presented. Operating results for interim periods are not necessarily indicative of results that may be expected for the fiscal year as a whole.

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles requires us to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues, expenses, and related disclosures at the date of the financial statements and during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from these estimates. These unaudited interim Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements should be read in conjunction with the Consolidated Financial Statements and Notes thereto included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended November 28, 2015 as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

 

As of the beginning of the first quarter ending February 27, 2016, we created a new global operating segment named Engineering Adhesives, which includes the electronics, automotive and Tonsan businesses from around the world. We will also begin reporting our Construction Products business on a global basis by combining our EIMEA and Asia Pacific construction businesses with our Construction Products operating segment. We now have five reportable segments: Americas Adhesives, EIMEA, Asia Pacific, Construction Products and Engineering Adhesives.

 

New Accounting Pronouncements

 

In March 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-08, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606), Principal versus Agent Considerations (Reporting Revenue Gross versus Net).  This Update provides guidance on recording revenue on a gross basis versus a net basis based on the determination of whether an entity is a principal or an agent when another party is involved in providing goods or services to a customer.  The amendments in this Update affect the guidance in ASU No. 2014-09 and are effective in the same timeframe as ASU No. 2014-09 as discussed below.

 

In February 2016, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) issued Accounting Standards Update (ASU) No. 2016-05, Derivatives and Hedging (Topic 815). The amendments in this guidance clarify that a change in the counterparty to a derivative instrument that has been designated as a hedging instrument under Topic 815 does not, in and of itself, require dedesignation of that hedging relationship provided that all other hedge accounting criteria continue to be met. Our effective date for adoption of this guidance is our fiscal year beginning December 4, 2016. We have evaluated the effect that this guidance will have on our Consolidated Financial Statements and related disclosures and determined it will not have a material impact.

 

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-02, Leases (Subtopic 842). This guidance changes accounting for leases and requires lessees to recognize the assets and liabilities arising from all leases, including those classified as operating leases under previous accounting guidance, on the balance sheet and requires disclosure of key information about leasing arrangements to increase transparency and comparability among organizations. The accounting for lessors does not fundamentally change except for changes to conform and align guidance to the lessee guidance. Our effective date for adoption of this guidance is our fiscal year beginning December 1, 2019 with early adoption permitted. The new guidance must be adopted using a modified retrospective transition approach, and provides for certain practical expedients. We are currently evaluating the impact that the new guidance will have on our consolidated financial statements.

 

In June 2014, the FASB issued ASU No. 2014-12, Compensation - Stock Compensation (Topic 718), Accounting for Share-Based Payments When the Terms of an Award That a Performance Target Could Be Achieved after the Requisite Service Period, which requires a performance target that affects vesting and that could be achieved after the requisite service period be treated as a performance condition. As such, the performance target should not be reflected in estimating the grant-date fair value of the award and compensation cost should be recognized in the period in which it becomes probable that the performance target will be achieved and should represent the compensation cost attributable to the period(s) for which the requisite service has already been rendered. Our effective date for adoption of this guidance is our fiscal year beginning December 4, 2016, however we elected to early adopt this guidance as of our first quarter ended February 27, 2016. The adoption of this guidance did not have a material impact on our Consolidated Financial Statements.

In May 2014, the FASB issued ASU No. 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606), which requires an entity to recognize the amount of revenue to which it expects to be entitled for the transfer of promised goods or services to customers. This guidance will replace most existing revenue recognition guidance in U.S. GAAP when it becomes effective. The new standard is effective for fiscal years and interim periods beginning after December 15, 2017 (as stated in ASU No. 2015-14 which defers the effective date and was issued in August 2015) and is now effective for our fiscal year beginning December 2, 2018. Early application as of the original effective date is permitted under ASU 2015-14. The standard permits the use of either the retrospective or cumulative effect transition method. We are evaluating the effect that this guidance will have on our Consolidated Financial Statements and related disclosures. We have not yet selected a transition method nor have we determined the effect of the standard on our ongoing financial reporting.

 

Note 2: Acquisitions

 

Continental Products Limited 

 

On February 3, 2015 we acquired the equity of Continental Products Limited, a provider of industrial adhesives, based in Nairobi, Kenya. The purchase price of €1,459, or approximately $1,647, net of cash acquired of $371, was funded through existing cash.

 

Tonsan Adhesive, Inc.

 

On February 2, 2015 we acquired 95 percent of the equity of Tonsan Adhesive, Inc., an independent engineering adhesives provider based in Beijing, China. The purchase price was 1.4 billion Chinese renminbi, or approximately $215,925, net of cash acquired of $7,754, which was financed with the proceeds from our October 31, 2014 term loan, drawn in conjunction with the acquisition.

 

Concurrent with the acquisition, we entered into an agreement to acquire the remaining 5 percent of Tonsan’s equity beginning February 1, 2019 for 82 million Chinese renminbi or approximately $13,038. In addition, the agreement requires us to pay up to 418 million Chinese renminbi or approximately $66,848 in contingent consideration based upon a formula related to Tonsan’s gross profit in fiscal 2018. The fair values of the agreement to purchase the remaining equity and the contingent consideration based upon a discounted cash flow model as of the date of acquisition were $11,773 and $7,714, respectively. See Note 14 for further discussion of the fair value of the contingent consideration.

Note 3: Accounting for Share-Based Compensation

 

Overview 

 

We have various share-based compensation programs, which provide for equity awards including stock options, incentive stock options, restricted stock shares, restricted stock units, performance awards and deferred compensation. These equity awards fall under several plans and are described in detail in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended November 28, 2015.

 

Grant-Date Fair Value 

 

We use the Black-Scholes option pricing model to calculate the grant-date fair value of an award. The fair value of options granted during the quarter ended February 27, 2016 and February 28, 2015 were calculated using the following weighted average assumptions:

Expected life (in years)

      4.75           4.61

      29.03%           30.91%

    29.03% - 29.23%       25.50% - 31.67%  

Risk-free interest rate

      1.44%           1.26%    

Expected dividend yield

      1.56%           1.17%    

Weighted-average fair value of grants

  $   7.64       $   10.21    

 

Expected life – We use historical employee exercise and option expiration data to estimate the expected life assumption for the Black-Scholes grant-date valuation. We believe that this historical data is currently the best estimate of the expected term of a new option. We use a weighted-average expected life for all awards.

 

Expected volatility – Volatility is calculated using our historical volatility for the same period of time as the expected life. We have no reason to believe that our future volatility will differ materially from historical volatility.

 

Risk-free interest rate – The rate is based on the U.S. Treasury yield curve in effect at the time of the grant for the same period of time as the expected life.

 

Expected dividend yield – The calculation is based on the total expected annual dividend payout divided by the average stock price.

 

Expense Recognition

 

We use the straight-line attribution method to recognize share-based compensation expense for option awards, restricted stock shares and restricted stock units with graded and cliff vesting. Incentive stock options and performance awards are based on certain performance-based metrics and the expense is adjusted quarterly, based on our projections of the achievement of those metrics. The amount of share-based compensation expense recognized during a period is based on the value of the portion of the awards that are ultimately expected to vest.

 

Total share-based compensation expense of $4,267 and $4,261 was included in our Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income for the quarter ended February 27, 2016 and February 28, 2015, respectively. All share-based compensation expense was recorded as selling, general and administrative expense. For the quarter ended February 27, 2016, there was $341 charged against the APIC Pool for tax deficiencies. For the quarter ended February 28, 2015, there was $397 of excess tax benefit recognized.

 

As of February 27, 2016, there was $10,748 of unrecognized compensation costs related to unvested stock option awards, which is expected to be recognized over a weighted-average period of 1.6 years. Unrecognized compensation costs related to unvested restricted stock shares was $436 which is expected to be recognized over a weighted-average period of 0.9 years. Unrecognized compensation costs related to unvested restricted stock units was $11,631 which is expected to be recognized over a weighted-average period of 1.7 years.

We repurchased 66,447 and 53,917 restricted stock shares during the quarter ended February 27, 2016 and February 28, 2015, respectively. The repurchases relate to statutory minimum tax withholding.

 

We have a Directors’ Deferred Compensation plan that allows non-employee directors to defer all or a portion of their directors’ compensation in a number of investment choices, including units representing shares of our common stock. We also have a Key Employee Deferred Compensation Plan that allows key employees to defer a portion of their eligible compensation in a number of investment choices, including units, representing shares of our common stock. We provide a 10 percent match on deferred compensation invested into units, representing shares of our common stock.

Note 4: Earnings Per Share

 

A reconciliation of the common share components for the basic and diluted earnings per share calculations is as follows:

(Shares in thousands)

Weighted-average common shares - basic

Equivalent shares from share-based compensations plans

    1,037       1,191  

Weighted-average common and common equivalent shares - diluted

    50,995       51,379  

 

Basic earnings per share is calculated by dividing net income attributable to H.B. Fuller by the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding during the applicable period. Diluted earnings per share is based upon the weighted-average number of common and common equivalent shares outstanding during the applicable period. The difference between basic and diluted earnings per share is attributable to share-based compensation awards. We use the treasury stock method to calculate the effect of outstanding shares, which computes total employee proceeds as the sum of (a) the amount the employee must pay upon exercise of the award, (b) the amount of unearned share-based compensation costs attributed to future services and (c) the amount of tax benefits, if any, that would be credited to additional paid-in capital assuming exercise of the award. Share-based compensation awards for which total employee proceeds exceed the average market price over the applicable period have an antidilutive effect on earnings per share, and accordingly, are excluded from the calculation of diluted earnings per share.

 

Options to purchase 1,495,004 and 447,433 shares of common stock at a weighted-average exercise price of $42.88 and $48.59 for the quarter ended February 27, 2016 and February 28, 2015, respectively, were excluded from the diluted earnings per share calculations because they were antidilutive.

Note 6: Special Charges, net

 

The integration of the industrial adhesives business we acquired in March 2012 involved a significant amount of restructuring and capital investment to optimize the new combined entity. In addition, we have taken a series of actions in our existing EIMEA operating segment to improve the profitability and future growth prospects of this operating segment. We combined these two initiatives into a single project which we refer to as the “Business Integration Project”. During the quarter ended February 27, 2016 and February 28, 2015, we incurred special charges, net of $413 and $2,361, respectively, for costs related to the Business Integration Project.

Note 9: Financial Instruments

 

Foreign Currency Derivative Instruments

 

As a result of being a global enterprise, our earnings, cash flows and financial position are exposed to foreign currency risk from foreign currency denominated receivables and payables. These items are denominated in various foreign currencies, including the Euro, British pound sterling, Canadian dollar, Chinese renminbi, Japanese yen, Australian dollar, Argentine peso, Brazilian real, Colombian peso, Mexican peso, Turkish lira, Egyptian pound, Indian rupee and Malaysian ringgit.

 

Our objective is to balance, where possible, local currency denominated assets to local currency denominated liabilities to have a natural hedge and minimize foreign exchange impacts. We take steps to minimize risks from foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations through normal operating and financing activities and, when deemed appropriate, through the use of derivative instruments. We do not enter into any speculative positions with regard to derivative instruments.

 

We enter into derivative contracts with a group of investment grade multinational commercial banks. We evaluate the credit quality of each of these banks on a periodic basis as warranted.

 

Effective October 7, 2015, we entered into three cross-currency swap agreements to convert a notional amount of $134,736 of foreign currency denominated intercompany loans into US dollars. The first swap matures in 2017, the second swap matures in 2018 and the third swap matures in 2019. As of February 27, 2016, the combined fair value of the swaps was an asset of $1,741 and was included in other assets in the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets. The swaps were designated as cash-flow hedges for accounting treatment. The lesser amount between the cumulative change in the fair value of the actual swaps and the cumulative change in the fair value of hypothetical swaps is recorded in accumulated other comprehensive income (loss) in the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets. The difference between the cumulative change in the fair value of the actual swaps and the cumulative change in the fair value of hypothetical swaps are recorded as other income (expense), net in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income. In a perfectly effective hedge relationship, the two fair value calculations would exactly offset each other. Any difference in the calculation represents hedge ineffectiveness. The ineffectiveness calculations as of February 27, 2016 resulted in additional pre-tax loss of $31 for the quarter ended February 27, 2016 as the change in fair value of the cross-currency swaps was less than the change in the fair value of the hypothetical swaps. The amount in accumulated other comprehensive income (loss) related to cross-currency swaps was a loss of $1,068 as of February 27, 2016. The estimated net amount of the existing loss that is reported in accumulated other comprehensive income (loss) as of February 27, 2016 that is expected to be reclassified into earnings within the next twelve months is $603. As of February 27, 2016, we do not believe any gains or losses will be reclassified into earnings as a result of the discontinuance of these cash flow hedges because the original forecasted transaction will not occur.

Except for the cross-currency swap agreements listed above, foreign currency derivative instruments outstanding are not designated as hedges for accounting purposes. The gains and losses related to mark-to-market adjustments are recognized as other income or expense in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income during the periods in which the derivative instruments are outstanding. See Note 14 for fair value amounts of these derivative instruments.

 

As of February 27, 2016, we had forward foreign currency contracts maturing between March 15, 2016 and February 24, 2017. The mark-to-market effect associated with these contracts, on a net basis, was a gain of $1,384 at February 27, 2016. These gains were largely offset by the underlying transaction gains and losses resulting from the foreign currency exposures for which these contracts relate.

 

Interest Rate Swaps

 

We have interest rate swap agreements to convert $75,000 of our senior notes to variable interest rates. The change in fair value of the senior notes, attributable to the change in the risk being hedged, was a liability of $3,328 at February 27, 2016 and was included in long-term debt and current maturities of long-term debt in the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets. The combined fair value of the swaps were an asset of $3,510 at February 27, 2016 and were included in other assets in the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets. The swaps were designated for hedge accounting treatment as fair value hedges.

 

The changes in the fair value of the swap and the fair value of the senior notes attributable to the change in the risk being hedged are recorded as other income (expense), net in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income. In a perfectly effective hedge relationship, the two fair value calculations would exactly offset each other. Any difference in the calculation represents hedge ineffectiveness. The calculation as of February 27, 2016 resulted in a pretax gain of $143 for the quarter ended February 27, 2016 as the fair value of the senior notes decreased by more than the change in the fair value of the interest rate swaps attributable to the change in the risk being hedged. The calculations as of February 28, 2015 resulted in a pre-tax gain of $59 for the quarter ended February 28, 2015 as the fair value of the interest rate swaps increased by more than the change in the fair value of the senior notes attributable to the change in the risk being hedged.

 

Concentrations of credit risk with respect to trade accounts receivable are limited due to the large number of entities in the customer base and their dispersion across many different industries and countries. As of February 27, 2016, there were no significant concentrations of credit risk.

Note 10: Commitments and Contingencies

 

Environmental Matters 

 

From time to time, we become aware of compliance matters relating to, or receive notices from, federal, state or local entities regarding possible or alleged violations of environmental, health or safety laws and regulations. We review the circumstances of each individual site, considering the number of parties involved, the level of potential liability or our contribution relative to the other parties, the nature and magnitude of the hazardous substances involved, the method and extent of remediation, the estimated legal and consulting expense with respect to each site and the time period over which any costs would likely be incurred. Also, from time to time, we are identified as a potentially responsible party (PRP) under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act (CERCLA) and/or similar state laws that impose liability for costs relating to the clean up of contamination resulting from past spills, disposal or other release of hazardous substances. We are also subject to similar laws in some of the countries where current and former facilities are located. Our environmental, health and safety department monitors compliance with applicable laws on a global basis. To the extent we can reasonably estimate the amount of our probable liabilities for environmental matters, we establish a financial provision. 

 

Currently we are involved in various environmental investigations, clean up activities and administrative proceedings and lawsuits. In particular, we are currently deemed a PRP in conjunction with numerous other parties, in a number of government enforcement actions associated with landfills and/or hazardous waste sites. As a PRP, we may be required to pay a share of the costs of investigation and clean up of these sites. In addition, we are engaged in environmental remediation and monitoring efforts at a number of current and former operating facilities. While uncertainties exist with respect to the amounts and timing of the ultimate environmental liabilities, based on currently available information, we have concluded that these matters, individually or in the aggregate, will not have a material adverse effect on our results of operations, financial condition or cash flow.

 

Other Legal Proceedings 

 

From time to time and in the ordinary course of business, we are a party to, or a target of, lawsuits, claims, investigations and proceedings, including product liability, personal injury, contract, patent and intellectual property, environmental, health and safety, tax and employment matters. While we are unable to predict the outcome of these matters, we have concluded, based upon currently available information, that the ultimate resolution of any pending matter, individually or in the aggregate, including the asbestos litigation described in the following paragraphs, will not have a material adverse effect on our results of operations, financial condition or cash flow.

 

We have been named as a defendant in lawsuits in which plaintiffs have alleged injury due to products containing asbestos manufactured more than 30 years ago. The plaintiffs generally bring these lawsuits against multiple defendants and seek damages (both actual and punitive) in very large amounts. In many cases, plaintiffs are unable to demonstrate that they have suffered any compensable injuries or that the injuries suffered were the result of exposure to products manufactured by us. We are typically dismissed as a defendant in such cases without payment. If the plaintiff presents evidence indicating that compensable injury occurred as a result of exposure to our products, the case is generally settled for an amount that reflects the seriousness of the injury, the length, intensity and character of exposure to products containing asbestos, the number and solvency of other defendants in the case, and the jurisdiction in which the case has been brought.

 

A significant portion of the defense costs and settlements in asbestos-related litigation is paid by third parties, including indemnification pursuant to the provisions of a 1976 agreement under which we acquired a business from a third party. Currently, this third party is defending and paying settlement amounts, under a reservation of rights, in most of the asbestos cases tendered to the third party.

 

In addition to the indemnification arrangements with third parties, we have insurance policies that generally provide coverage for asbestos liabilities, including defense costs.  Historically, insurers have paid a significant portion of our defense costs and settlements in asbestos-related litigation. However, certain of our insurers are insolvent.  We have entered into cost-sharing agreements with our insurers that provide for the allocation of defense costs and settlements and judgments in asbestos-related lawsuits.  These agreements require, among other things, that we fund a share of settlements and judgments allocable to years in which the responsible insurer is insolvent

 

A summary of the number of and settlement amounts for asbestos-related lawsuits and claims is as follows:

We do not believe that it would be meaningful to disclose the aggregate number of asbestos-related lawsuits filed against us because relatively few of these lawsuits are known to involve exposure to asbestos-containing products that we manufactured. Rather, we believe it is more meaningful to disclose the number of lawsuits that are settled and result in a payment to the plaintiff. To the extent we can reasonably estimate the amount of our probable liabilities for pending asbestos-related claims, we establish a financial provision and a corresponding receivable for insurance recoveries. 

 

Based on currently available information, we have concluded that the resolution of any pending matter, including asbestos-related litigation, individually or in the aggregate, will not have a material adverse effect on our results of operations, financial condition or cash flow. 

 

Note 11: Operating Segments

 

We are required to report segment information in the same way that we internally organize our business for assessing performance and making decisions regarding allocation of resources. We evaluate the performance of each of our operating segments based on segment operating income, which is defined as gross profit less SG&A expenses. Segment operating income excludes special charges, net. Corporate expenses are fully allocated to each operating segment. Inter-segment revenues are recorded at cost plus a markup for administrative costs. Operating results of each segment are regularly reviewed by our chief operating decision maker to make decisions about resources to be allocated to the segments and assess their performance.

 

Through the fourth quarter of 2015, our business was reported in four operating segments: Americas Adhesives, Europe, India, Middle East and Africa (EIMEA), Asia Pacific and Construction Products. Changes in our management reporting structure during the first quarter of 2016 required us to conduct an operating segment assessment in accordance with ASC Topic 280, Segment Reporting, to determine our reportable segments. As a result of this assessment, we now have five reportable segments: Americas Adhesives, EIMEA, Asia Pacific, Construction Products and Engineering Adhesives. Prior period segment information has been recast retrospectively to reflect our new operating segments.

 

The table below provides certain information regarding net revenue and segment operating income for each of our operating segments:

As discussed in Note 11, during the first quarter of fiscal year 2016, we changed our operating segments as a result of a change in our management reporting structure. This resulted in a change in our reporting units. We allocated goodwill to our new reporting units using the relative fair value approach.

 

Balances of amortizable identifiable intangible assets, excluding goodwill and other non-amortizable intangible assets, as of February 27, 2016 are as follows:

Note 14: Fair Value Measurements

 

Estimates of fair value for financial assets and liabilities are based on the framework established in the accounting guidance for fair value measurements. The framework defines fair value, provides guidance for measuring fair value and requires certain disclosures. The framework discusses valuation techniques, such as the market approach (comparable market prices), the income approach (present value of future income or cash flow) and the cost approach (cost to replace the service capacity of an asset or replacement cost). The framework utilizes a fair value hierarchy that prioritizes the inputs to valuation techniques used to measure fair value into three broad levels. The following is a brief description of those three levels:

 

 

Level 1: Observable inputs such as quoted prices (unadjusted) in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.

 

Level 2: Inputs other than quoted prices that are observable for the asset or liability, either directly or indirectly. These include quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities in active markets and quoted prices for identical or similar assets or liabilities in markets that are not active.

 

Level 3: Unobservable inputs that reflect management’s assumptions, and include situations where there is little, if any, market activity for the asset or liability.

The following table presents information about our financial assets and liabilities that are measured at fair value on a recurring basis as of February 27, 2016 and November 28, 2015, and indicates the fair value hierarchy of the valuation techniques utilized to determine such fair value.
