Armstrong Flooring, Inc. and Subsidiaries
Notes to Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements
(Dollars in millions, except per share data)


NOTE 1. BUSINESS AND BASIS OF PRESENTATION
Background
Armstrong Flooring, Inc. (“AFI”) is a leading global producer of resilient flooring products for use primarily in the construction and renovation of residential, commercial and institutional buildings. AFI designs, manufactures, sources and sells resilient flooring products in North America and the Pacific Rim. When we refer to "AFI," "the Company," "we," "our," and "us" in this report, we are referring to Armstrong Flooring, Inc., a Delaware corporation, and its consolidated subsidiaries.
Basis of Presentation
These Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements are prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America ("U.S. GAAP"). The statements include management estimates and judgments, where appropriate. Management uses estimates to record many items including certain asset values, allowances for bad debts, inventory obsolescence, lower of cost or market or net realizable value charges, warranty reserves, workers compensation, general liability and environmental claims and income taxes. When preparing an estimate, management determines the amount based upon the consideration of relevant information. Management may confer with outside parties, including outside counsel. Actual results may differ from these estimates. In the opinion of management, all adjustments of a normal, recurring nature have been included to provide a fair statement of the results for the reporting periods presented. Operating results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020 and 2019 included in this report are unaudited. Quarterly results are not necessarily indicative of annual income, primarily due to the different level of sales in each quarter of the year and the possibility of changes in economic conditions between periods.
The accounting policies used in preparing the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements in this Form 10-Q are the same as those used in preparing the Consolidated Financial Statements for the year ended December 31, 2019, except as noted below. These statements should therefore be read in conjunction with the Consolidated Financial Statements and notes that are included in the Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2019.
All significant intercompany transactions within AFI have been eliminated from the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements.

COVID-19

The COVID-19 pandemic has significantly impacted our operations and resulted in lower than expected revenue in 2020. In response, we have implemented several cost reduction initiatives, including reduced capital spending, implementing a furlough of certain salaried employees and reducing employee benefits. We are also pursuing a plan expected to monetize non-core assets. The impact of the pandemic on our future results is unknown. We have incurred net losses for the past several years, and negative cash flows from operations beginning in 2019. The pandemic’s impacts, our recurring losses and our negative cash flows resulted in the identification of a triggering event requiring impairment testing of our North America long-lived assets in the first quarter of 2020. The results of this testing indicated that, as of March 31, 2020, our North America long-lived assets were not impaired. Our actual second quarter 2020 results exceeded the assumptions used in our first quarter 2020 impairment test. While no long-lived asset impairment, significant inventory write-down or significant incremental accounts receivable reserves were recorded in the first six months of 2020, such charges are possible in the future, which could have a material adverse effect on our future results.
Recently Adopted Accounting Standards
On January 1, 2020, we adopted ASU 2016-13, "Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments." The guidance and subsequent amendments issued, requires immediate recognition of estimated credit losses that are expected to occur over the remaining life of many financial assets. The most notable impact of this ASU related to our processes around

Notes to Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements
(Dollars in millions, except per share data)

the assessment of the adequacy of our allowance for doubtful accounts on trade account receivables. We adopted using the modified retrospective transition method. The adoption of the standard did not have a material impact on our financial condition, results of operations or cash flows.

On January 1, 2020, we adopted ASU 2018-13, "Disclosure Framework-Changes to the Disclosure Requirements for Fair Value Measurement." The guidance eliminates, adds and modifies certain disclosure requirements. Adoption of the standard did not have an impact our financial condition, results of operations or cash flows.

On January 1, 2020, we adopted ASU 2018-14, "Disclosure Framework-Changes to the Disclosure Requirements for Defined Benefit Plans." The guidance changes the disclosure requirements by eliminating certain disclosures that are no longer considered cost beneficial and added new ones that are considered pertinent. Adoption of the standard did not have an impact our financial condition, results of operations or cash flows.

On January 1, 2020, we adopted ASU 2018-15, "Customer's Accounting for Implementation Costs Incurred in a Cloud Computing Arrangement That Is a Service Contract." The guidance aligns the requirements for capitalizing implementation costs in a cloud computing arrangement service contract with the requirements for capitalizing implementation costs incurred for an internal use software license. Capitalized implementation costs should be amortized over the term of the service agreement on a straight line basis and should be assessed for impairment in a manner similar to long-lived assets. We adopted using the prospective transition method. This standard did not have a material impact on our financial condition, results of operations and cash flows.
Recently Issued Accounting Standards
In December 2019, the FASB issued ASU 2019-12, "Income Taxes (Topic 740)." The guidance simplifies accounting for income taxes by removing certain exceptions. This new guidance is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2020 for public companies. Early adoption is permitted. We are continuing to evaluate the impact the adoption of this standard will have on our financial condition, results of operations and cash flows.

Pursuant to ASC 740, we are required to consider all items (including items recorded in discontinued operations and other comprehensive income) in determining the amount of tax benefit that results from a loss from continuing operations.

For the six months ended June 30, 2020, we recognized an income tax benefit consisting of a U.S. income tax benefit and a foreign income tax expense from various jurisdictions. The U.S. income tax benefit relates to a reduction in the Company’s valuation allowance due to the tax impact of the gains in other comprehensive income.

For the three and six months ended June 30, 2019, we recognized an income tax benefit consisting of a U.S. income tax benefit and a foreign income tax expense from various jurisdictions. The U.S. income tax benefit relates to a reduction in our valuation allowance due to the tax impact of the gains from resolution of our antidumping case in discontinued operations and gains on other comprehensive income.

Upon audit, taxing authorities may challenge all or part of an uncertain income tax position. AFI regularly assesses the outcome of potential examinations in each of the taxing jurisdictions when determining the adequacy of the amount of unrecognized tax benefit recorded. We do not expect to record any material changes during 2020 to our unrecognized tax benefits as of December 31, 2019.
As of June 30, 2020, we consider foreign unremitted income to be permanently reinvested.

NOTE 5. DISCONTINUED OPERATIONS
In December 2018, we completed the sale of our wood business to Tarzan Holdco, Inc. ("TZI"), a Delaware corporation and an affiliate of American Industrial Partners. The proceeds from the sale were $90.2 million, net of closing costs, transaction fees and taxes. The transaction was subject to a customary post-closing working capital adjustment process which resulted in us making a $1.9 million payment to TZI in the third quarter of 2019.
The following is a summary of the results related to the net gain on disposal of the wood business, which is included in discontinued operations:

During the second quarter of 2019, we reached a resolution in our antidumping case regarding our previously operated plant in Kunshan, China that manufactured multilayered wood flooring. We resolved our potential liability outside of litigation pursuant to a settlement agreement with the petitioners. As a result, we reversed the previously recognized liability of $11.4 million, which was reflected in gain on disposal of discontinued operations.

For the three months and six months ended June 30, 2020 and the six months ended June 30, 2019 the diluted loss per share was calculated using basic common shares outstanding, as inclusion of potentially dilutive common shares would be anti-dilutive. For the three months ended June 30, 2019 the diluted earnings per share was calculated using net income available to common stockholders divided by the diluted weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period, determined using the treasury stock method.

Performance-based employee compensation awards are considered potentially dilutive in the initial period in which the performance conditions are met.

On January 1, 2020 we adopted ASU 2016-13, "Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments." The guidance requires immediate recognition of estimated credit losses that are expected to occur over the remaining life of many financial assets. Generally, we sell our products to select, pre-approved customers whose businesses are affected by changes in economic and market conditions. We consider these factors and the financial condition of each customer when establishing our allowance for losses from doubtful accounts. We adopted this ASU using the modified retrospective transition method. The adoption of the standard did not have a material impact on our results of operations or cash flows.
Allowance for product claims represents expected reimbursements for cost associated with warranty repairs and customer accommodation claims, the majority of which is provided to our independent distributors through a credit against accounts receivable from the distributor to AFI.

The following table summarizes the activity for the allowance for product claims:

The term of the Technical Center lease will be ten years and seven months, with an anticipated commencement date of March 1, 2021. Both leases will be recorded as operating leases.
In the second quarter of 2019, we recognized $0.9 million and $1.6 million of sublease income and income from non-lease components, respectively, in SG&A expenses related to termination fees received from TZI due to the cancellation of a sublease before the end of the lease term.

On June 23, 2020, we entered into a Third Amendment to the ABL Credit Facility (the "Amendment"), which reduces commitments from $100 million to $90 million, amends the interest rates applicable to the loans, modifies certain financial maintenance and other covenants, and permits indebtedness under the Term Loan Agreement defined below. The Amended ABL Credit Facility provides for a borrowing base that is derived from our accounts receivable and inventory, collectively, with the equity interests in the guarantors, (the "ABL Priority Collateral"), subject to certain reserves and other limitations. The Amended ABL Credit Facility matures in December 2023.

The Amendment permits us to grant a first priority security interest in real estate, machinery and equipment and intellectual property collateral to Pathlight Capital LP (the "Term Loan Agent") (collectively, the “Term Loan Priority Collateral”). Bank of America, N.A., as administrative agent and collateral agent (in such capacities, the “ABL Agent”) will not have a security interest in the real property securing the Term Loan Agreement (as defined below) but will have a second priority security interest in machinery and equipment and intellectual property constituting Term Loan Priority Collateral.

13


Armstrong Flooring, Inc. and Subsidiaries
Notes to Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements
(Dollars in millions, except per share data)

Borrowings under the Amended ABL Credit Facility will bear interest at a rate per annum equal to, at our option, a base rate or a Eurodollar rate equal to the London interbank offered rate (“LIBOR”) for the relevant interest period, plus, in each case, an applicable margin determined in accordance with the provisions of the Amendment. The base rate will be the highest of (a) the federal funds rate plus 0.50%, (b) the prime rate of Bank of America, N.A., and (c) LIBOR plus 1.00%. The applicable margin for borrowings under the Amended ABL Credit Facility will be determined based on the Company’s Consolidated Leverage Ratio (as defined in the Amendment) and will range from 1.75% to 3.00% with respect to base rate borrowings and 2.75% to 4.00% with respect to Eurodollar rate borrowings. In addition to paying interest on outstanding principal under the Amended ABL Credit Facility, we will pay a commitment fee to the lenders with respect to the unutilized revolving commitments thereunder at a rate ranging from 0.375% to 0.50% depending on the Company’s Consolidated Leverage Ratio.

In addition, the Amendment also amends certain financial covenants. The Amended ABL Credit Facility requires, among other things, that we maintain a minimum Consolidated Cash Flow (as defined in the Amendment) for the three-fiscal quarter period ending September 30, 2020 and for any four-fiscal quarter period ending thereafter, have minimum Availability (as defined in the Amended ABL Credit Facility) of $30 million and, during a Financial Covenant Trigger Period (as defined in the Amendment), maintain a minimum Consolidated Fixed Charge Coverage Ratio (as defined in the Amendment) of at least 1.00 to 1.00 (such covenants, the “Financial Covenants”).

On June 23, 2020 we also entered into a new term loan facility with Pathlight Capital LP as the administrative agent ("Term Loan Agreement"). The Term Loan Agreement provides us with a secured term loan credit facility of $70 million (the “Term Loan Facility”). The borrowing base is derived from the Company’s machinery and equipment, intellectual property and real property, subject to certain reserves and other limitations. The Term Loan Facility is scheduled to mature on June 23, 2025. The principal balance of the Term Loan Facility is payable in quarterly installments beginning in June 2021. We used the proceeds of the Term Loan Facility to pay down the Amended ABL Credit Facility.
Borrowings under the Term Loan Facility will bear interest at a rate per annum equal to LIBOR for a three-month interest period, plus an applicable margin of 12.00%.
We must use cash proceeds from certain dispositions, including sales of real estate, equity and debt issuances and extraordinary events to prepay outstanding loans under the Term Loan Facility, subject to specified exceptions, including the prepayment requirements with respect to the Amended ABL Credit Facility. Prepayments of loans under the Term Loan Facility prior to the third anniversary of the closing date are subject to certain premiums.
All obligations under the Term Loan Agreement are guaranteed by each of our wholly owned domestic subsidiaries that individually, or together with its subsidiaries, has assets of more than $1.0 million and are secured by a first priority lien on the Term Priority Collateral and a second priority lien on the ABL Priority Collateral.
The Term Loan Agreement contains a number of covenants that, among other things and subject to certain exceptions, restrict our ability to create liens, to undertake fundamental changes, to incur debt, to sell or dispose of assets, to make investments, to make restricted payments such as dividends, distributions or equity repurchases, to change the nature of our businesses, to enter into transactions with affiliates and to enter into certain burdensome agreements.
In addition, the Term Loan Agreement requires us to comply with the amended ABL Credit Facility Financial Covenants.
The Term Loan Agreement also contains customary affirmative covenants and events of default, including a cross-default provision in respect of certain material indebtedness and a change of control provision. If an event of default occurs, the lenders may choose to accelerate the maturity of the Term Loan Facility and require repayment of all obligations thereunder.

NOTE 13. COMMON STOCK REPURCHASE PLAN

On March 6, 2017, we announced that our board of directors had approved a share repurchase program pursuant to which we were authorized to repurchase up to $50.0 million of our outstanding shares of common stock. From inception of the share repurchase program through May 3, 2019, we repurchased approximately 2.5 million shares for a total cost of $41.0 million, with an average price of $16.23 per share. On May 3, 2019, we announced that our board of directors had authorized an increased share repurchase program for an additional $50.0 million beyond the $41.0 million already repurchased under the prior share repurchase program, effective immediately. Repurchases under the new program could be made through open market, block, and privately negotiated transactions, including Rule 10b5-1 plans, at times and in such amounts as management deemed appropriate, subject to market and business conditions, regulatory requirements and other factors.

On May 17, 2019, we announced the commencement of a modified "Dutch auction" self-tender offer to repurchase up to $50.0 million in cash of shares of our common stock. As a result of the auction, on June 21, 2019 we purchased 4,504,504 shares of common stock at a purchase price of $11.40 per share, for a total cost of $51.3 million, including fees and expenses. After the completion of the tender offer, we have no remaining authorization to purchase further shares.

NOTE 15. LITIGATION AND RELATED MATTERS
Environmental Matters
Environmental Compliance
Our manufacturing and research facilities are affected by various federal, state and local requirements relating to the discharge of materials and the protection of the environment. We make expenditures necessary for compliance with applicable environmental requirements at each of our operating facilities. These regulatory requirements continually change, therefore we cannot predict with certainty future expenditures associated with compliance with environmental requirements.
Environmental Sites
In connection with our current or legacy manufacturing operations, or those of former owners, we may from time to time become involved in the investigation, closure and/or remediation of existing or potential environmental contamination under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act, and state or international Superfund and similar type environmental laws. For those matters, we may have rights of contribution or reimbursement from other parties or coverage under applicable insurance policies; however, we cannot predict with certainty the future identification of or expenditure for any investigation, closure or remediation of any environmental site.

Summary of Financial Position
There were no material liabilities recorded as of June 30, 2020 and December 31, 2019 for potential environmental liabilities that we consider probable and for which a reasonable estimate of the probable liability could be made.
Other Claims
We are involved in various lawsuits, claims, investigations and other legal matters from time to time that arise in the ordinary course of conducting business, including matters involving our products, intellectual property, relationships with suppliers, relationships with distributors, relationships with competitors, employees and other matters. For example, we are currently a party to various litigation matters that involve product liability, tort liability and other claims under a wide range of allegations, including illness due to exposure to certain chemicals used in the workplace, or medical conditions arising from exposure to product ingredients or the presence of trace contaminants. In some cases, these allegations involve multiple defendants and relate to legacy products that we and other defendants purportedly manufactured or sold. We believe these claims and allegations to be without merit and intend to defend them vigorously. For these matters, we also may have rights of contribution or reimbursement from other parties or coverage under applicable insurance policies.
On November 15, 2019, a shareholder filed a putative class action complaint in the United States District Court for the Central District of California alleging violations of Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and Rule 10b-5, promulgated thereunder, based on alleged false and/or misleading statements or omissions made between March 6, 2018 and November 4, 2019.  On March 2, 2020, the court issued an order appointing a lead plaintiff and lead counsel.  On July 2, 2020, the lead plaintiff filed an amended complaint asserting similar violations and expanding the alleged class period to cover alleged false and/or misleading statements or omissions made between March 6, 2018 and March 3, 2020.  We cannot predict the duration or outcome of this suit at this time.  As a result, we are unable to estimate the reasonably possible loss arising from this lawsuit.  The Company intends to vigorously defend itself in this matter.
While complete assurance cannot be given to the outcome of these proceedings, we do not believe that any of these matters, individually or in the aggregate, will have a material adverse effect on our financial condition, results of operations, or cash flows.

Item 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations

Our Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations ("MD&A") is provided in addition to the accompanying Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements and notes to assist readers in understanding our results of operations, financial condition, and cash flows. This interim MD&A should be read in conjunction with the MD&A in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2019.

Overview

Armstrong Flooring, Inc. ("AFI" or the "Company") is a leading global producer of resilient flooring products for use primarily in the construction and renovation of commercial, residential and institutional buildings. We design, manufacture, source and sell flooring products primarily in North America and the Pacific Rim. As of June 30, 2020, we operated eight manufacturing plants in three countries. We operate six manufacturing plants located throughout the United States (California, Illinois, Mississippi, Oklahoma, and Pennsylvania) and one plant each in China and Australia.

COVID-19
The COVID-19 pandemic is significantly impacting our operations. We are committed to safeguarding our employees and the communities in which we operate, while continuing to deliver our products to customers. We are following guidelines and directives from governmental authorities and local health authorities across our facilities to continue to operate safely and responsibly. This includes working remotely, providing personal protective equipment, limiting group meetings, restricting air travel, enhancing cleaning and sanitizing procedures, and practicing social distancing, among other risk mitigation measures.

Our China plant was closed most of the month of February 2020. On April 1, 2020, we announced a proactive two-week production suspension in our North America plants beginning April 5, 2020 in response to the increasing social and economic impact of COVID-19. We continued to operate our warehouses. We reopened our North America plants as planned following the two-week shut-down. Our plants in China and Australia continued their operations during the second quarter. We have not experienced, and do not anticipate, material availability issues related to our raw materials or finished goods.

To help mitigate the potential spread of the virus, our North America sales team and corporate staff are working remotely and will continue to do so. In the second quarter we furloughed approximately 100 employees, primarily administrative employees from our corporate headquarters. Most of the furloughed employees returned in July 2020. In addition, the employer match for certain benefit plans was suspended through the end of the third quarter of 2020 for salaried non-production employees.

Inconsistent state and local government orders have resulted in and will continue to have varying impacts to our results across geographies and for some of our customers. In some cases independent customer retail locations are closed. Generally, home centers have continued to operate. Construction is considered an essential business in most of North America. However, some of our customers' commercial projects in the retail sector have been postponed. These factors have led to a softer demand environment in certain states and channels.

The impact of the pandemic on our future results is unknown.

Employees

As of June 30, 2020 and December 31, 2019, we had approximately 1,500 and 1,600 full-time and part-time employees worldwide, respectively.

Factors Affecting Our Business


19

Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations


Net Sales

Overview

Demand for our products is influenced by economic conditions. We closely monitor publicly available macroeconomic trend data that provide insight to commercial and residential market activity; this includes Gross Domestic Product growth indices, the Architecture Billings Index and the Consumer Confidence Index, as well as housing starts and existing home sales.

Demand for our products is also influenced by consumer preferences. In addition, our channel partners raise or lower their inventory levels according to their expectations of market demand and consumer preferences, which directly affects our sales.

Markets

We compete in both the commercial and residential markets in North America and primarily the commercial market in the Pacific Rim. Our business operates in a competitive environment across all our product categories, and excess capacity exists in much of the industry. We continue to see efforts by various competitors to price aggressively as a means to gain market share.

We continue to see a decline in demand for our traditional resilient products, including VCT and particularly vinyl sheet products used in residential applications. The decline in vinyl sheet is driven by consumer trends, which have continued to favor alternate products, including luxury vinyl tile ("LVT") products.

The flooring market continues to experience LVT growth. Given its attractive visuals and performance characteristics, LVT growth has exceeded that of the overall flooring market. We believe LVT growth has and will continue to come partially at the expense of other product categories in both the soft and hard surface flooring markets.

We are the largest producer of VCT which is primarily used in commercial environments.

Tariffs

Tariffs impact the cost of products we import from China. The U.S. government announced a tariff of 10% on certain flooring products imported to the U.S. from China, effective on September 24, 2018 with an additional 15% effective on May 10, 2019. In order to partially offset the impact, we implemented price increases that went into effect in the fourth quarter of 2018, and additional price increases that went into effect in the second quarter of 2019 on select impacted products. On November 8, 2019, an exclusion on tariffs of certain flooring products was announced. The exclusion applies retroactively to September 24, 2018. We filed for tariff refunds on these products in 2020. Additional products were added to the exclusion in the second quarter of 2020, also retroactive to September 24, 2018. The exclusions are scheduled to expire in August 2020. In addition, we reduced prices on select impacted products in the fourth quarter of 2019.

Net sales for the three months ended June 30, 2020 decreased compared to the three months ended June 30, 2019 primarily attributable to lower volumes due to the COVID-19 pandemic and shelter-in-place related business disruptions, including the temporary closing of many independent customer retail locations and the postponement of certain commercial projects, partially offset by increased activity with home centers.

Cost of goods sold


21

Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations


Cost of goods sold for the three months ended June 30, 2020 was 83.0% of net sales compared to 79.6% of net sales in the three months ended June 30, 2019. The change was primarily due to lower sales volume and related reduction in production capacity, which led to accelerated recognition of period expenses in cost of sales.
.

Selling, general & administrative expenses

Selling, general and administrative expenses for the three months ended June 30, 2020 decreased compared to the three months ended June 30, 2019 due to cost reduction measures implemented in response to the impact of COVID-19 and lower executive transition costs, partially offset by $4.7 million of income from a transition service agreement and a $2.5 million benefit from an early lease termination fee in 2019.

Income tax benefit

There was no income tax benefit for the three months ended June 30, 2020 compared to income tax benefit of $2.7 million for the three months ended June 30, 2019. The prior year tax benefit was due to a reduction in our U.S. valuation allowance due to the tax impact of the gain on disposal of discontinued operations resulting from a resolution of our antidumping case.

Discontinued operations

For the three months ended June 30, 2019, a $9.4 million gain on disposal of discontinued operations was realized primarily due to the resolution of an antidumping case.

Net sales for the six months ended June 30, 2020 decreased compared to the six months ended June 30, 2019 primarily attributable to lower volumes due to the COVID-19 pandemic and shelter-in-place related business disruptions, including the temporary closing of many independent customer retail locations and the postponement of certain commercial projects, partially offset by increased activity with home centers.

Cost of goods sold

Cost of goods sold for the six months ended June 30, 2020 was 83.1% of net sales compared to 81.7% of net sales in the six months ended June 30, 2019. The change was primarily due to lower sales volume and related reduction in production capacity, which led to accelerated recognition of period expenses in cost of sales.

Selling, general & administrative expenses

Selling, general and administrative expenses for the six months ended June 30, 2020 decreased compared to the six months ended June 30, 2019 due to cost reduction measures implemented in response to the impact of COVID-19 and lower executive transition costs, partially offset by $9.3 million of income from a transition service agreement and a $2.5 million benefit from an early lease termination fee in 2019.

Income tax benefit

Income tax benefit was $0.3 million for the six months ended June 30, 2020 compared to income tax benefit of $3.0 million for the six months ended June 30, 2019. The effective tax rate for the six months ended June 30, 2020 of 1.5%

22

Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations


compared to the rate of 21.0% for the same period of 2019. The change in effective rates is primarily driven by the mix of income among tax jurisdictions and the effects of unbenefitted losses.

Discontinued operations

For the six months ended June 30, 2019, a $9.3 million gain on disposal of discontinued operations was realized, primarily due to the resolution of an antidumping case.

Liquidity and Capital Resources
Our primary sources of liquidity are, and we anticipate that they will continue to be, proceeds from asset sales and borrowings under our credit facilities. We believe these sources are sufficient to fund our capital needs and planned capital expenditures, and to meet our interest and other contractual obligations in the near term. Our liquidity needs for operations vary throughout the year with the majority of our cash flows typically generated in the second and third quarters.
Cash and cash equivalents totaled $34.1 million as of June 30, 2020, of which $17.2 million was held in the U.S.

Operating activities
Operating activities for the six months ended June 30, 2020 used $6.9 million. Cash was used primarily by net changes in working capital, primarily inventories and receivables, partially offset by accounts payable and accrued expenses and net non-cash expenses, primarily depreciation and amortization. Operating activities for the six months ended June 30, 2019 used $33.8 million of cash, primarily due to a reduction in accounts payable and accrued expenses and an increase in receivables, partially offset by net non-cash expenses, primarily depreciation and amortization.
Investing activities
Net cash used for investing activities of $10.9 million and $15.5 million for the six months ended June 30, 2020 and 2019, respectively, reflected purchases of property, plant and equipment.
Financing activities
Net cash provided by financing activities for the six months ended June 30, 2020 was $25.0 million. Cash provided primarily reflected the borrowings under our Term Loan Agreement and ABL Credit Facility, partially offset by payments to our ABL Credit Facility. Net cash used in the six months ended June 30, 2019 was $79.1 million, and primarily reflected purchases of treasury stock and repayments of our revolving credit facility.
Debt
On June 23, 2020 we entered into a Third Amendment to the ABL Credit Facility (the "Amendment"), which reduces commitments from $100 million to $90 million, amends the interest rates applicable to the loans, modifies certain financial maintenance and other covenants, and permits indebtedness under the Term Loan Agreement defined below. The Amended ABL Credit Facility provides for a borrowing base that is derived from our accounts receivable and inventory, collectively, with the equity interests in the guarantors, the Amended ABL Priority Collateral, subject to certain reserves and other limitations. The Amended ABL Credit Facility matures in December 2023.


23

Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations


The Amendment permits us to grant a first priority security interest in real estate, machinery and equipment and intellectual property collateral to the Term Loan Agent (collectively, the “Term Loan Priority Collateral”). Bank of America, N.A., as administrative agent and collateral agent (in such capacities, the “ABL Agent”) will not have a security interest in the real property securing the Term Loan Agreement (as defined below) but will have a second priority security interest in machinery and equipment and intellectual property constituting Term Loan Priority Collateral.
Borrowings under the Amended ABL Credit Facility will bear interest at a rate per annum equal to, at our option, a base rate or a Eurodollar rate equal to the London interbank offered rate (“LIBOR”) for the relevant interest period, plus, in each case, an applicable margin determined in accordance with the provisions of the Amendment. The base rate will be the highest of (a) the federal funds rate plus 0.50%, (b) the prime rate of Bank of America, N.A., and (c) LIBOR plus 1.00%. The applicable margin for borrowings under the Amended ABL Credit Facility will be determined based on the Company’s Consolidated Leverage Ratio (as defined in the Amendment) and will range from 1.75% to 3.00% with respect to base rate borrowings and 2.75% to 4.00% with respect to Eurodollar rate borrowings. In addition to paying interest on outstanding principal under the Amended ABL Credit Facility, we will pay a commitment fee to the lenders with respect to the unutilized revolving commitments thereunder at a rate ranging from 0.375% to 0.50% depending on the Company’s Consolidated Leverage Ratio.

In addition, the Amendment also amends certain financial covenants. The Amended ABL Credit Facility requires, among other things, that we maintain a minimum Consolidated Cash Flow (as defined in the Amendment) for the three-fiscal quarter period ending September 30, 2020 and for any four-fiscal quarter period ending thereafter, have minimum Availability (as defined in the Amended ABL Credit Facility) of $30 million and, during a Financial Covenant Trigger Period (as defined in the Amendment), maintain a minimum Consolidated Fixed Charge Coverage Ratio (as defined in the Amendment) of at least 1.00 to 1.00 (such covenants, the “Financial Covenants”).

On June 23, 2020 we also entered into a new term loan facility with Pathlight Capital LP as the administrative agent ("Term Loan Agreement"). The Term Loan Agreement provides us with a secured term loan credit facility of $70 million (the “Term Loan Facility”). The borrowing base is derived from the Company’s machinery and equipment, intellectual property and real property, subject to certain reserves and other limitations. The Term Loan Facility is scheduled to mature on June 23, 2025. The principal balance of the Term Loan Facility is payable in quarterly installments beginning in June 2021. We used the proceeds of the Term Loan Facility to pay down the Amended ABL Credit Facility.
Borrowings under the Term Loan Facility will bear interest at a rate per annum equal to LIBOR for a three-month interest period, plus an applicable margin of 12.00%.
We must use cash proceeds from certain dispositions, including sales of real estate, equity and debt issuances and extraordinary events to prepay outstanding loans under the Term Loan Facility, subject to specified exceptions, including the prepayment requirements with respect to the Amended ABL Credit Facility. Prepayments of loans under the Term Loan Facility prior to the third anniversary of the closing date are subject to certain premiums.
All obligations under the Term Loan Agreement are guaranteed by each of our wholly owned domestic subsidiaries that individually, or together with its subsidiaries, has assets of more than $1.0 million and are secured by a first priority lien on the Term Priority Collateral and a second priority lien on the ABL Priority Collateral.
The Term Loan Agreement contains a number of covenants that, among other things and subject to certain exceptions, restrict our ability to create liens, to undertake fundamental changes, to incur debt, to sell or dispose of assets, to make investments, to make restricted payments such as dividends, distributions or equity repurchases, to change the nature of our businesses, to enter into transactions with affiliates and to enter into certain burdensome agreements.
In addition, the Term Loan Agreement requires us to comply with the Amended ABL Credit Facility Financial Covenants.

24

Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations


The Term Loan Agreement also contains customary affirmative covenants and events of default, including a cross-default provision in respect of certain material indebtedness and a change of control provision. If an event of default occurs, the lenders may choose to accelerate the maturity of the Term Loan Facility and require repayment of all obligations thereunder.

As of June 30, 2020, there were no borrowings outstanding under our Amended ABL Credit Facility, while outstanding letters of credit were $3.9 million. Total net availability under the Amended ABL Credit Facility and Term Loan Facility as of June 30, 2020 was $82.3 million.
 
We are required to pay a commitment fee, payable quarterly in arrears, on the average daily unused amount of the revolving Amended ABL Credit Facility, which varies according to the net leverage ratio and was 0.20% as of June 30, 2020. Outstanding letters of credit issued under the Amended ABL Credit Facility are subject to fees which will be due quarterly in arrears based on the applicable margin described above plus a fronting fee. The total rate for letters of credit was 2.375% as of June 30, 2020.

All obligations under the Amended ABL Credit Facility and Term Loan Facility are guaranteed by each of our wholly owned domestic subsidiaries that individually, or together with its subsidiaries, has assets of more than $1.0 million. All obligations under the Amended ABL Credit Facility and Term Loan Facility, and guarantees of those obligations, are secured by all of the present and future assets of the Company and the guarantors, subject to certain exceptions and exclusions as set forth in the Amended ABL Credit Facility, Term Loan Facility and other security and collateral documents.

Due to its stated five-year maturity, this obligation is presented as a long-term obligation in our Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheet. However, we may repay this obligation at any time, without penalty.

Our foreign subsidiaries had available lines of credit totaling $8.5 million; there were $4.2 million borrowings under these lines of credit as of June 30, 2020.

Debt Covenants

The Amendment also amends certain financial covenants. The Amended ABL Credit Facility and the Term Loan Facility require, among other things, that we maintain a minimum Consolidated Cash Flow (as defined in the Amendment) for the three-fiscal quarter period ending September 30, 2020 and for any four-fiscal quarter period ending thereafter, have minimum Availability (as defined in the Amended ABL Credit Facility) of $30 million and, during a Financial Covenant Trigger Period (as defined in the Amendment), maintain a minimum Consolidated Fixed Charge Coverage Ratio (as defined in the Amendment) of at least 1.00 to 1.00 (such covenants, the “Financial Covenants”).

As of June 30, 2020, the minimum Consolidated Cash Flow and the Fixed Charge Coverage Ratio covenants were not applicable. As of June 30, 2020, we were in compliance with the minimum availability requirement of $30 million.

See Note 11 to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements for additional information related to the ABL Amendment and Term Loan Facility.

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements
We do not have any off-balance sheet arrangements.

Contractual Obligations

On June 26, 2020, we entered into new Headquarters (HQ) and Technical Center lease agreements with High Properties. The term of the HQ lease will be ten years and four months, with an anticipated commencement date of June 1, 2021. Under the terms of the HQ lease, we will lease an aggregate of 58,500 square feet in two existing adjacent buildings located in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. During the first sixteen months of the HQ lease term, we will pay an initial monthly rental rate of $26.75 per square foot, plus operating expenses and real estate taxes, subject to a rent abatement period, with a gradual rate increase for each twelve month period thereafter, culminating with a monthly rental rate of $31.97 per square foot, plus operating expenses and real estate taxes, during the final twelve months of the HQ lease term. The term of the Technical Center lease will be ten years and seven months, with an anticipated commencement date

25

Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations


of March 1, 2021. Under the terms of the Technical Center lease, we will lease 32,143 square feet of an existing building also in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. During the first sixteen months of the Technical Center lease, we will pay an initial monthly rental rate of $11.71 per square foot, plus operating expenses and real estate taxes, subject to a rent abatement period, with a gradual rate increase for each twelve month period thereafter, culminating with a monthly rental rate of $13.30 per square foot, plus operating expenses and real estate taxes, during the final twelve months of the Technical Center lease. Both leases will be recorded as operating leases.

Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk
For information regarding our exposure to certain market risks, see "Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk" in the Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations section of our 2019 Annual Report on Form 10-K.

Item 4. Controls and Procedures

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

The Company maintains a system of disclosure controls and procedures to give reasonable assurance that information required to be disclosed in the Company's reports filed or submitted under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the "Exchange Act"), is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the rules and forms of the SEC. These controls and procedures also give reasonable assurance that information required to be disclosed in such reports is accumulated and communicated to management to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosures.
  
During the evaluation of disclosure controls and procedures and our internal control over financial reporting as of December 31, 2019 conducted during the preparation of our financial statements, which were included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019, our management identified a material weakness in internal control over financial reporting relating to the design and implementation of information technology general controls (ITGCs) over two information technology (IT) systems that support our processing of certain sales incentives, which are recorded as a reduction of net sales and accounts receivable. As a result, business process automated and manual controls that are dependent on the affected ITGCs were ineffective because they could have been adversely impacted. These control deficiencies were a result of: risk-assessment processes inadequate to identify and evaluate responses to risks in the financial reporting process; and failure to implement monitoring control activities when involving a third party service provider. This control deficiency did not result in any identified misstatements to the consolidated financial statements as of and for the year ended December 31, 2019 and there were no changes to previously released financial results. However, the control deficiency create a reasonable possibility that a material misstatement to our consolidated financial statements will not be prevented or detected on a timely basis and, therefore, we concluded that as of December 31, 2019, our internal control over financial reporting was not effective.

As of June 30, 2020, the material weakness was not yet remediated. As a result, our Chief Executive Officer and Interim Chief Financial Officer, together with management, concluded that, as of June 30, 2020, our disclosure controls and procedures were not effective. We have implemented and continue to implement measures designed to ensure that the deficient ITGCs for the two IT systems that support our processing of certain sales incentives are remediated. We have also updated our risk-assessment process to better identify risks in the financial reporting process and have implemented monitoring control activities when using a third party service provider. As we continue to implement these measures, we may determine that additional steps may be necessary to remediate the material weakness. The material weakness will not be considered remediated, however, until the controls are designed, implemented and operate for a sufficient period of time and management has concluded, through testing, that these controls are operating effectively. We expect that the remediation of this material weakness will be completed prior to the end of 2020.

Change in Internal Controls over Financial Reporting
On June 26, 2020, our Board of Directors and Douglas B. Bingham mutually agreed that Mr. Bingham would step down from his position as Senior Vice President, CFO and Treasurer and principal financial officer. The role and responsibilities of principal financial officer of the Company previously held by Mr. Bingham were assumed by Gregory D. Waina, as Interim Chief Financial Officer.


27


Except for the material weakness described above, no changes in our internal control over financial reporting occurred during the fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2020 that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.
