Vertiv Holdings Co
Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements (Unaudited)
(Dollars in millions, except as otherwise specified and per share amounts)

(1) DESCRIPTION OF BUSINESS

Vertiv Holdings Co ("Holdings Co", and together with its majority-owned subsidiaries, “Vertiv”, "we", "our", or "the Company"), formerly known as GS Acquisition Holdings Corp ("GSAH"), provides mission-critical infrastructure technologies and life cycle services for data centers, communication networks, and commercial and industrial environments. Vertiv’s offerings include power conditioning and uninterruptible power systems, thermal management, integrated data center control devices, software, monitoring, and service. Vertiv manages and reports results of operations for three business segments: Americas; Asia Pacific; and Europe, Middle East & Africa.

(2) BASIS OF PRESENTATION AND SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

The unaudited condensed consolidated interim financial statements have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") in the United States of America and the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") and include the accounts of the Company and its subsidiaries in which the Company has a controlling interest. These condensed consolidated interim financial statements do not include all of the information and footnotes required for complete financial statements. In management’s opinion, these financial statements reflect all adjustments of a normal, recurring nature necessary for a fair presentation of the results for the interim periods presented.

The presentation of certain prior period amounts includes the reclassification of intangible amortization expense, restructuring costs and net foreign currency (gain) loss into separate components within operating expenses to conform to the current period presentation.

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP in the United States requires the Company to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual amounts could differ from the estimates. On an ongoing basis, management reviews its estimates based on currently available information. Changes in facts and circumstances may result in revised estimates. Results for these interim periods are not necessarily indicative of results to be expected for the full year due to, among other reasons, the continued uncertainty of general economic conditions due to the COVID-19 pandemic that has impacted, and may continue to impact, our sales channels, supply chain, manufacturing operations, workforce, or other key aspects of our operations.

Restatement of Previously Issued Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements

The notes included herein should be read in conjunction with the Company's restated audited consolidated financial statements included in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K/A filed with the SEC on April 30, 2021 (the "2020 Form 10-K/A").

As previously disclosed in our 2020 Form 10-K/A as filed on April 30, 2021, we restated the Company’s previously issued consolidated financial statements as of and for the year ended December 31, 2020, as well each of the quarters within 2020 to make the necessary accounting corrections related to warrant accounting. We have restated herein our condensed consolidated financial statements as of and for the quarter ended March 31, 2020. We have also restated related amounts within the accompanying footnotes to the condensed consolidated financial statements.The impact to the quarter ended March 31, 2020 was a decrease to net loss of $60.6, an increase to Warrant liabilities of $55.7 and a corresponding decrease to Additional paid in capital of $116.3.

(3) REVENUE

The Company recognizes revenue from the sale of manufactured products and services when control of promised goods or services are transferred to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration the Company expects to be entitled to in exchange for those goods or services.

Term Loan due 2027

On March 2, 2020, we completed a refinancing by entering into (i) Amendment No. 5 to the Prior-Asset Based Revolving Credit Agreement (as defined below), by and among, inter alia, Vertiv Group Corporation, a Delaware corporation (“Vertiv Group” or the “Borrower”) and an indirect wholly owned subsidiary of the Company, Vertiv Intermediate Holding II Corporation, a Delaware corporation (“Holdings”) and the direct parent of Vertiv Group, certain direct and indirect subsidiaries of Vertiv Group, as co-borrowers and guarantors thereunder, various financial institutions from time to time party thereto, as lenders, JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., as administrative agent (in such capacity, the “ABL Agent”), and certain other institutions as collateral agents and letter of credit issuers (the “ABL Amendment” and, the Prior Asset-Based Revolving Credit Agreement as amended by the ABL Amendment, the “ABL Revolving Credit Facility”), which ABL Amendment extended the maturity of, and made certain other modifications to, the Prior Asset-Based Revolving Credit Agreement and (ii) a new Term Loan Credit Agreement, by and among, inter alia, Holdings, Vertiv Group, as borrower, various financial institutions from time to time party thereto (the “Term Lenders”), and Citibank, N.A., as administrative agent (in such capacity, the “Term Agent”) (the “Original Term Loan Credit Agreement”), which Original Term Loan Credit Agreement provided for a $2,200.0 senior secured term loan (the "Term Loan"), the proceeds of which were used, together with certain borrowings under the ABL Revolving Credit Facility, to repay or redeem, as applicable, in full certain existing indebtedness and to pay certain fees and expenses as further set forth below. The refinancing transactions resulted in a reduction of our debt service requirements and an extension of the maturity profile of our indebtedness.

The proceeds of the Term Loan, together with certain borrowings under the ABL Revolving Credit Facility, were used to repay or redeem in full the outstanding indebtedness (the “Refinancing”) of the Borrower and of Vertiv Intermediate Holding Corporation, a Delaware corporation (“Holdco”) and an indirect parent of the Borrower, under the Borrower’s prior senior secured term loan credit facility the Borrower ’s and Holdco’s outstanding notes and to pay fees and expenses in connection with (a) entry into the Original Term Loan Credit Agreement, (b) entry into the ABL Amendment and (c) such repayments and redemptions.

Subject to certain conditions and without consent of the then-existing Term Lenders (but subject to the receipt of commitments), the Borrower may incur additional loans under Credit Agreement (as an increase to the Term Loan or as one or more new tranches of term loans) (“Incremental Term Loans”) in an aggregate principal amount of up to the sum of (a) the greater of $325.0 and 60.0% of Consolidated EBITDA (as defined in the Credit Agreement), plus (b) an amount equal to all voluntary prepayments, repurchases and redemptions of pari passu term loans borrowed under the Term Loan Credit Agreement and of certain other pari passu indebtedness incurred outside the Credit Agreement utilizing capacity that would otherwise be available for Incremental Term Loans, plus (c) an unlimited amount, so long as on a pro forma basis after giving effect thereto, (i) with respect to indebtedness secured by the Collateral (as defined below) on a pari passu basis with the Term Loan, the Consolidated First Lien Net Leverage Ratio (as defined in the Credit Agreement) would not exceed 3.75:1.00 and (ii) with respect to indebtedness incurred outside of the Credit Agreement and secured by the Collateral on a junior basis with the Term Loan or that is unsecured, the Consolidated Total Net Leverage Ratio (as defined in the Credit Agreement) would not exceed either (A) 5.25:1.00 or (B) if such indebtedness is incurred in connection with a permitted acquisition or other permitted investment, the Consolidated Total Net Leverage Ratio in effect immediately prior to the consummation of such transaction (the amounts referred to in clauses (a), (b) and (c), collectively, the “Incremental Amount”). Subject to certain conditions, the Borrower may incur additional indebtedness outside of the Credit Agreement using the then-available Incremental Amount in lieu of Incremental Term Loans.

11

The Term Loan amortizes in equal quarterly installments in an amount equal to 1.00% per annum of the principal amount, which commenced June 30, 2020. The interest rate applicable to the Term Loan is, at the Borrower’s option, either (a) the base rate (which is the highest of (i) the prime rate of Citibank, N.A. on such day, (ii) the greater of the then-current (A) federal funds rate set by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York and (B) rate comprised of both overnight federal funds and overnight LIBOR, in each case, plus 0.50%, (iii) LIBOR for a one month interest period, plus 1.00% and (iv) 1.00%), plus 2.00% or (b) one-, two-, three- or six-month LIBOR or, if agreed by all Term Lenders, 12-month LIBOR or, if agreed to by the Term Agent, any shorter period (selected at the option of the Borrower), plus 3.00%. Additionally, concurrent with the refinancing, Vertiv Group entered into interest rate swap agreements with an initial notional amount of $1,200.0, which was reduced to $1,000.0 during the first quarter of 2021 and will remain at $1,000.0 until the maturity of the Credit Agreement in 2027. The swap transactions exchange floating rate interest payments for fixed rate interest payments on the notional amount to reduce interest rate volatility. The borrowing rate of the Term Loan as of March 31, 2021 was 2.87%.

The Borrower may voluntarily prepay the Term Loan, in whole or in part, subject to minimum amounts, with prior notice but without premium or penalty (other than, subject to certain exclusions, a 1.00% premium on any prepayment in connection with a repricing transaction prior to the date that is six months after entry into the Term Loan Amendment). The Borrower is required to repay the Term Loan with 50% of Excess Cash Flow (as defined in the Credit Agreement), 100% of the net cash proceeds of certain asset sales and casualty and condemnation events and the incurrence of certain other indebtedness, in each case, subject to certain step-downs, reinvestment rights, thresholds and other exceptions. Any portion of the Term Loan that is repaid or repaid may not be re-borrowed. Unless accelerated subject to the Terms of the Term Loan Credit Agreement, any amounts not otherwise prepaid or repaid shall mature on March 2, 2027.

The Borrower’s obligations under the Term Loan Credit Agreement are guaranteed by Holdings and all of the Borrower’s direct and indirect wholly-owned U.S. subsidiaries (subject to certain permitted exceptions) (collectively, the “Guarantors”). Subject to certain exceptions, the obligations of the Borrower and the Guarantors under the Credit Agreement and related documents are secured by a lien on substantially all of the assets of the Borrower and the Guarantors (the “Collateral”).

The Credit Agreement contains customary representations and warranties, affirmative, reporting and negative covenants, and events of default. The negative covenants include, among other things, restrictions on the ability of Holdings, the Borrower and its restricted subsidiaries to grant liens or security interests on assets, undertake mergers and consolidations, sell or otherwise transfer assets, pay dividends or make other distributions and restricted payments, incur
indebtedness, make acquisitions, loans, advances or other investments, optionally prepay or modify terms of certain junior
indebtedness, enter into transactions with affiliates or change lines of business, in each case, subject to certain thresholds and exceptions.

On March 10, 2021, the Borrower, as the borrower, Holdings and certain direct and indirect subsidiaries of the Borrower,
as guarantors, entered into an Amendment No. 1 to Term Loan Credit Agreement (the “Term Loan Amendment” and, the
Original Term Loan Credit Agreement as amended by the Term Loan Amendment, the “Credit Agreement”) with the Term
Agent and the Term Lenders party thereto, which Term Loan Amendment made certain modifications to the Original Term
Loan Credit Agreement, including reducing the interest rate margins as specified above.

Pursuant to the Amendment, among other modifications, the interest rate margin for the Borrower’s outstanding term loans under the Credit Agreement was reduced by 0.25%, to 2.75% in respect of term loans bearing interest based on the LIBOR rate and to 1.75% in respect of term loans bearing interest based on a base rate defined in the Credit Agreement. The Company recognized a loss on the extinguishment of debt of $0.4 related to the Amendment.

The maturity date for such term loans remains March 2, 2027, and all other material provisions of the Credit Agreement remain materially unchanged.

ABL Revolving Credit Facility

The ABL Amendment extended the maturity of, and made certain other modifications to, the Revolving Credit Agreement, dated as of November 30, 2016 (as amended, restated, supplemented or otherwise modified from time to time prior to March 2, 2020, the “Prior Asset-Based Revolving Credit Agreement”), by and among Holdings, the Borrower, certain subsidiaries of the Borrower, as co-borrowers (the "Co-Borrowers"), various financial institutions from time to time party thereto, as lenders (after giving effect to the ABL Amendment, the “ABL Lenders”), the ABL Agent and certain other institutions from time to time party thereto as collateral agents and letter of credit issuers. The ABL Revolving Credit Facility is available to the Borrower and the Co-Borrowers and provides for revolving loans in various currencies and under U.S. and foreign subfacilities, in an aggregate amount up to $455.0 with a letter of credit subfacility of $200.0 and a swingline subfacility of $75.0, in each case, subject to various borrowing bases. Borrowings under the ABL Revolving Credit Facility are limited by borrowing base calculations based on the sum of specified percentages of eligible accounts receivable, certain eligible inventory and certain unrestricted cash, minus the amount of any applicable reserves. Borrowings under the ABL Revolving Credit Facility were used on March 2, 2020, together with the proceeds of the Term Loan, to consummate the Refinancing and for working capital purposes. Thereafter, borrowings under the ABL Revolving Credit Facility may be used for working capital and general corporate purposes.

Subject to certain conditions and without the consent of the then-existing ABL Lenders (but subject to the receipt of commitments), commitments under the ABL Revolving Credit Facility may be increased to up to $600.0.

The interest rate applicable to loans denominated in U.S. dollars under the ABL Revolving Credit Facility is, at the Borrower’s option, either (a) the base rate (which is the highest of (i) the prime rate of JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A. on such date, (ii) the greater of the then-current (A) federal funds rate set by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York and (B) rate comprised of both overnight federal and overnight LIBOR, in each case, plus 0.50%, (iii) LIBOR for a one month interest period, plus 1.00% and (iv) 1.00%), plus an applicable margin (the “Base Rate Margin”) ranging from 0.25% to 0.75%, depending on average excess availability or (b) one-, two-, three- or six-month LIBOR or, if available to all ABL Lenders, 12-month LIBOR or any shorter period (selected at the option of the Borrower), plus an applicable margin (the “LIBOR Margin” and collectively, with the Base Rate Margin, the “Applicable Margins”) ranging from 1.25% to 1.75%, depending on average excess availability. Certain “FILO” denominated loans have margins equal to the Applicable Margins, plus an additional 1.00%. Loans denominated in currencies other than U.S. dollars are subject to customary interest rate conventions and indexes, but in each case, with the same Applicable Margins. In addition, the following fees are applicable under the ABL Revolving Credit Facility: (a) an unused line fee of 0.25% per annum on the unused portion of the commitments under the ABL Revolving Credit Facility, (b) letter of credit participation fees on the aggregate stated amount of each letter of credit equal to the LIBOR Margin and (c) certain other customary fees and expenses of the lenders, letter of credit issuers and agents thereunder.

The Borrower and Co Borrowers may voluntarily repay loans under the ABL Revolving Credit Facility, in whole or in part,
subject to minimum amounts, with prior notice but without premium or penalty. The Borrower and Co Borrowers are
required to make prepayment s under the ABL Revolving Credit Facility at any time when, and to the extent that, the
aggregate amount of outstanding loans and letters of credit under the ABL Revolving Credit Facility exceeds the lesser of
the then applicable aggregate commitments and the then applicable borrowing base. Subject to the satisfaction of certain
customary conditions and the then applicable borrowing base, any amounts repaid may be re borrowed. Unless terminated subject to the terms of the ABL Revolving Credit Facility, all commitments under the ABL Revolving Credit Facility shall terminate, and any loans outstanding thereunder shall mature, on March 2, 2025.

The Borrower’s and Co-Borrowers’ obligations under the ABL Revolving Credit Facility are guaranteed by the Guarantors (including certain Co-Borrowers as to the obligations of other Co-Borrowers) and, subject to certain exclusions, certain non-U.S. restricted subsidiaries of the Borrower (the “Foreign Guarantors”). No Foreign Guarantor guarantees the obligations of the Borrower or any Co-Borrower that is a U.S. subsidiary of the Borrower. Subject to certain exceptions, the obligations of the Borrower, Co-Borrowers, Guarantors and Foreign Guarantors under the ABL Revolving Credit Facility and related documents are secured by a lien on the Collateral and, subject to certain exceptions and exclusions, certain assets of the Co-Borrowers that are non-U.S. subsidiaries of the Borrower and certain assets of the Foreign Guarantors (collectively, the “Foreign Collateral”). None of the Foreign Collateral secures the obligations of the Borrower or any Co-Borrower that is a U.S. subsidiary of the Borrower.

13

The ABL Revolving Credit Facility contains customary representations and warranties, affirmative, reporting and negative covenants (including as to borrowing base-related matters), and events of default. The negative covenants include, among other things, restrictions on the ability of Holdings, the Borrower, the Co Borrowers and the restricted subsidiaries of the Borrower to grant liens or security interests on assets, undertake mergers and consolidations, sell or otherwise transfer assets, pay dividends or make other distributions and restricted payments, incur indebtedness, make acquisitions, loans, advances or other investments, optionally prepay or modify terms of certain junior indebtedness, enter into transactions with affiliates or change lines of business, in each case, subject to certain thresholds and exceptions. In addition, the the ABL Revolving Credit Facility requires the maintenance of a minimum Consolidated Fixed Charge Coverage Ratio (as defined in the ABL Revolving Credit Facility) on any date when Global Availability (as defined in the ABL Revolving Credit Facility) is less than the greater of (a) 10.0% of the aggregate commitments and (b) $30.0, of at least 1.00 to 1.00, tested for the four fiscal quarter period ended on the last day of the most recently ended fiscal quarter for which financials have been delivered, and at the end of each succeeding fiscal quarter thereafter until the date on which Global Availability has exceeded the greater of (a) 10.0% of the aggregate commitments and (b) $30.0 for 30 consecutive calendar days.

At March 31, 2021, Vertiv Group and the Co-Borrowers had $433.9 of availability under the ABL Revolving Credit Facility (subject to customary conditions, and subject to separate sublimits for letters of credit, swingline borrowings and borrowings made to certain non-U.S. Co-Borrowers. Net of letters of credit outstanding in the aggregate principal amount of $21.1, and taking into account the borrowing base limitations set forth in the ABL Revolving Credit Facility. At March 31, 2021, there was no borrowing balance on the ABL Revolving Credit Facility.

(7) LEASES

The Company leases office space, warehouses, vehicles, and equipment. Leases have remaining lease terms of 1 year to 20 years, some of which have renewal and termination options. Termination options are exercisable at the Company's option. Terms and conditions to extend or terminate are recognized as part of the right-of-use assets and lease liabilities where prescribed by the guidance. The majority of our leases are operating leases. Finance leases are immaterial to our condensed consolidated financial statements.

(8) INCOME TAXES

The Company's effective tax rate was 24.0 percent and (7.1) percent for the three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020, respectively. The effective rate in the current three month period is influenced by the mix of income between our U.S. and non-U.S. operations and reflects the negative impact of Global Intangible Low-Taxed Income (GILTI), which is partially offset by the benefit of changes in the U.S. valuation allowance. The effective rate for the comparative three month period was primarily influenced by the mix of income between our U.S. and non-U.S. operations, and the impact of valuation allowances offsetting the tax effect in the U.S. and certain other jurisdictions. The prior period also reflects discrete tax adjustments related to (1) a change in our indefinite reinvestment liability caused by movement in foreign currencies and legislative changes enacted during the quarter, and (2) adjustments related to uncertain tax positions.

The Company has provided for U.S. federal income taxes and foreign withholding taxes on all temporary differences attributed to basis differences in foreign subsidiaries that are not considered indefinitely reinvested. As of March 31, 2021, the Company has certain earnings of certain foreign affiliates that continue to be indefinitely reinvested, but it was not practicable to determine the impact.

On March 18, 2020, the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCR Act), and on March 27, 2020, the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) were each enacted in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The FFCR Act and the CARES Act contain numerous income tax provisions that impact the Company, such as relaxing limitations on the deductibility of interest and the use of net operating losses arising in taxable years beginning after December 31, 2017. However, due to the significant interest and net operating loss carryforwards subject to valuation allowance, the FFCR Act and CARES Act positions do not have a material impact on the company’s annual effective tax rate or tax position.

(11) FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS AND RISK MANAGEMENT

In accordance with ASC 820, the Company uses a three-tier fair value hierarchy, which prioritizes the inputs used in measuring fair value. Observable inputs are from sources independent of the Company. Unobservable inputs reflect the Company’s assumptions about the factors market participants would use in valuing the asset or liability developed based upon the best information available in the circumstances. These tiers include the following:

Level 1 — inputs include observable unadjusted quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities

Level 2 — inputs include other than quoted prices in active markets that are either directly or indirectly observable

17

Level 3 — inputs include unobservable inputs in which little or no market data exists, therefore requiring an entity to develop its own assumptions

In determining fair value, the Company uses various valuation techniques and prioritizes the use of observable inputs. The availability of observable inputs varies from instrument to instrument and depends on a variety of factors including the type of instrument, whether the instrument is actively traded and other characteristics particular to the instrument. For many financial instruments, pricing inputs are readily observable in the market, the valuation methodology used is widely accepted by market participants and the valuation does not require significant management judgment. For other financial instruments, pricing inputs are less observable in the marketplace and may require management judgment.

Recurring fair value measurements

We elected to apply fair value option accounting to the Tax Receivable Agreement. A summary of the Company's financial instruments recognized at fair value, and the fair value measurements used, follows:

Balance Sheet Location Total Quoted prices in active markets for identical assets (Level 1) Other observable inputs (Level 2) Unobservable inputs (Level 3)

Total liabilities $ 344.6  $ 68.5  $ 120.5  $ 155.6 

Tax Receivable Agreement — value is determined using Level 3 inputs. The measurement is calculated using unobservable inputs based on the Company’s own assumptions including the timing and amount of future taxable income and realizability of tax attributes. When valuing the tax receivable liability at March 31, 2021, we utilized a discount rate of 3.8%. The discount rate was determined based on the risk-free rate and Vertiv's implied credit spread. A one percentage point change in the discount rate would result in a change in value of approximately $9.0 at March 31, 2021. Significant changes in unobservable inputs could result in material changes to the tax receivable liability.

18

Details of the changes in value for the Tax Receivable Agreement are as follows:

2021 2020
Beginning liability balance, January 1 $ 155.6  $ — 
Tax receivable agreement, initially recorded —  133.4 
Change in fair value (2.3) (16.9)
Ending liability balance, March 31 $ 153.3  $ 116.5 

Interest rate swaps — valued using the LIBOR yield curves at the reporting date. Counterparties to these contracts are highly rated financial institutions. The fair values of the Company’s interest rate swaps are adjusted for nonperformance risk and creditworthiness of the counterparty through the Company’s credit valuation adjustment (“CVA”). The CVA is calculated at the counterparty level utilizing the fair value exposure at each payment date and applying a weighted probability of the appropriate survival and marginal default percentages.

Public warrants — as the Public warrants are traded in active markets, their value is derived using quoted market prices and are classified as Level 1 financial instruments.

Private warrants — the fair value of the Private warrants is considered a Level 2 valuation and is determined using the Black-Sholes-Merton valuation model. The significant assumptions which the Company used in the model are:
Warrant valuation inputs March 31, 2021 December 31, 2020

Tax Receivable Agreement

Tax Receivable Agreement generally provides for the payment by us to the Vertiv Stockholder of 65% of the cash tax savings in U.S. federal, state, local and certain foreign taxes, that we actually realize (or are deemed to realize) in periods after the closing of the Business Combination as a result of (i) increases in the tax basis of certain intangible assets of Vertiv resulting from certain pre-Business Combination acquisitions, (ii) certain U.S. federal income tax credits for increasing research activities (so-called “R&D credits”) and (iii) tax deductions in respect of certain Business Combination expenses. We expect to retain the benefit of the remaining 35% of these cash tax savings.

For purposes of the Tax Receivable Agreement, the applicable tax savings will generally be computed by comparing our actual tax liability for a given taxable year to the amount of such taxes that we would have been required to pay in such taxable year without the tax basis in certain intangible assets, the U.S. federal income tax R&D credits and the tax deductions for certain Business Combination expenses described above. Except as described below, the term of the Tax Receivable Agreement will continue for 12 taxable years following the closing of the Business Combination. However, the payments described in (i) and (ii) above will generally be deferred until the close of our third taxable year following the closing of the Business Combination. The payments described in (iii) above will generally be deferred until the close of our fourth taxable year following the closing of the Business Combination and then payable ratably over the following three taxable year periods regardless of whether we actually realize such tax benefits. Payments under the Tax Receivable Agreement are not conditioned on the Vertiv Stockholder’s continued ownership of our stock.

Under certain circumstances (including a material breach of our obligations, certain actions or transactions constituting a change of control, a divestiture of certain assets, upon the end of the term of the Tax Receivable Agreement or, after three years, at our option), payments under the Tax Receivable Agreement will be accelerated and become immediately due in a lump sum. In such case, the payments due upon acceleration would be based on the present value of our anticipated future tax savings using certain valuation assumptions, including that we will generate sufficient taxable income to fully utilize the applicable tax assets and attributes covered under the Tax Receivable Agreement (or, in the case of a
19

divestiture of certain assets, the applicable tax attributes relating to such assets). Consequently, it is possible in these circumstances that the actual cash tax savings realized by us may be significantly less than the corresponding Tax Receivable Agreement payments we are required to make at the time of acceleration. Furthermore, the acceleration of our obligations under the Tax Receivable Agreement could have a substantial negative impact on our liquidity.

The Tax Receivable Agreement provides for the payment by us to the Vertiv Stockholder of 65% of the cash tax savings realized (or deemed realized) over a 12-year period after the closing of the Business Combination. In the twelfth year of the Tax Receivable Agreement, an additional payment will be made to the Vertiv Stockholder based on 65% of the remaining tax benefits that have not been realized. The timing of expected future payments under the Tax Receivable Agreement are dependent upon various factors, including the existing tax bases at the time of the Business Combination, the realization of tax benefits, and changes in tax laws. However, as the Company is obligated to settle the remaining tax benefits after 12 years, the Company has concluded that the liability should be measured at fair value and recorded within other long-term liabilities in the unaudited condensed consolidated balance sheets. The Company has estimated total payments of approximately $191.5 on an undiscounted basis. The initial fair value of the estimated liability resulting from the Business Combination of $133.4 was included as an adjustment to Additional paid in capital. Subsequent measurements are recorded in Interest expense, net and Accumulated other comprehensive income, as appropriate based on the passage of time, change in risk-free rate and implied credit spread. Cash flows of the Tax Receivable Agreement are discounted at an appropriate rate for the applicable duration of the instrument adjusted for our own credit spread. The fair value movement on the tax receivable agreement attributable to our own credit risk spread is recorded in Other comprehensive income. These estimates and assumptions are subject to change, which may materially affect the measurement of the liability.

We have recorded $1.8 and $9.0 in Interest expense, net for the three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020, respectively, in the consolidated statement of earnings (loss). An unrealized gain of $4.1 and $25.9 was recorded in Accumulated other comprehensive income, related to the change in fair value of the tax receivable liability from the Business Combination to March 31, 2021 and March 31, 2020, respectively.

Interest Rate Risk Management

From time to time the Company may enter into derivative financial instruments designed to hedge the variability in interest expense on floating rate debt. Derivatives are recognized as assets or liabilities in the Consolidated Balance Sheets at their fair value. When the derivative instrument qualifies as a cash flow hedge, changes in the fair value are deferred through other comprehensive earnings, depending on the nature and effectiveness of the offset.

Concurrent with the refinancing on March 2, 2020, the Company designated certain interest rate swaps with an initial notional amount of $1,200.0 as cash flow hedges.

The Company uses interest rate swaps to manage the interest rate mix of our total debt portfolio and related overall cost of borrowing. At March 31, 2021 interest rate swap agreements designated as cash flow hedges effectively swapped a notional amount of $1,000.0 of LIBOR based floating rate debt for fixed rate debt. Our interest rate swaps mature in March 2027. The change in the fair value of interest rate swaps of $33.9 was recorded in Accumulated other comprehensive (loss) income on the balance sheet at March 31, 2021. The total fair value at March 31, 2021 consisted of $10.0 current portion recorded in Accrued expenses and other liabilities and a $11.1 non-current portion recorded in Other assets. The Company recognized $2.7 and zero in earnings for the three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020, respectively. At March 31, 2021, the Company expects that approximately $10.0 of pre-tax net losses on cash flow hedges will be reclassified from Accumulated other comprehensive income (loss) into earnings during the next twelve months.

Foreign Currency Exchange Rate Risk Management

We conduct business in several major international currencies and are, therefore, subject to risks associated with changing foreign currency exchange rates. We enter into various contracts that change in value as foreign currency exchange rates change to manage this exposure. Such contracts limit exposure to both favorable and unfavorable currency exchange rate fluctuations.

20

Other fair value measurements

We determine the fair value of debt using Level 2 inputs based on quoted market prices. The following table presents the estimated fair value and carrying value of long-term debt, including the current portion of long-term debt as of March 31, 2021 and December 31, 2020.

(13) SEGMENT INFORMATION

Beginning in the first quarter of 2021, the primary income measure used for assessing segment performance and making operating decisions is operating profit (loss). Segment performance is assessed exclusive of Corporate and other costs, foreign currency gain (loss), and amortization of intangibles. Corporate and other costs primarily include headquarters management costs, stock-based compensation, other incentive compensation, global IT costs, change in warrant liabilities, asset impairments, and costs that support global product platform development and offering management.

Vertiv determines its reportable segments based on how operations are managed internally for the products and services sold to customers, including how the results are reviewed by the chief operating decision maker (CODM), which includes determining resource allocation methodologies used for reportable segments. During the first quarter of 2021 we reorganized our internal reporting and realigned our operating segment structure to how our CODM, our Chief Executive Officer, now allocates resources and makes decisions. The changes resulted in the identification of two new operating segments, 1) North Asia and 2) Australia & New Zealand, South East Asia and India (ASI) which previously were reported as our legacy Asia Pacific operating segment. Given the similarities of economic characteristics and other qualitative factors, we aggregate these operating segments, such that our reportable segments are unchanged.

In conjunction with the realignment, the Company concluded the new operating segments also comprised reporting units and the company tested goodwill for impairment for each reporting unit both immediately before and immediately after the business realignment. The Company allocated goodwill to the two new reporting units based on their relative fair value.
21

The goodwill impairment tests under both the legacy and new reporting unit structures concluded that no impairment existed during the first quarter of fiscal 2021.

Summarized information about the Company’s results of operations by reportable segment and product and service offering follows:

Americas includes products and services sold for applications within the data center, communication networks and commercial/industrial markets in North America and Latin America. This segment’s principal product and service offerings include:

Critical infrastructure & solutions includes AC and DC power management, thermal management, and modular hyperscale type data center sites.

Integrated rack solutions includes racks, rack power, rack power distribution, rack thermal systems, and configurable integrated solutions; and hardware for managing I.T. equipment.

Services & spares includes preventative maintenance, acceptance testing, engineering and consulting, performance assessments, remote monitoring, training, spare parts, and digital critical infrastructure software.

Asia Pacific includes products and services sold for applications within the data center, communication networks and commercial/industrial markets throughout North Asia and ASI. Products and services offered are similar to the Americas segment.

(14) EARNINGS (LOSS) PER SHARE

Basic earnings per ordinary share is computed by dividing net earnings attributable to holders of the Company's Class A common shares by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period. Diluted earnings per ordinary share is computed by dividing net earnings attributable to holders of the Company's Class A common shares by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period increased by the number of additional shares that would have been outstanding related to potentially dilutive securities or instruments, if the impact is dilutive.

The details of the earnings per share calculations for the three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020 are as follows (in millions, except per share and per share amounts):

Three months ended March 31, 2021 Three months ended March 31, 2020
(as restated)
Net income (loss) attributable to common shareholders $ 31.7  $ (208.3)
Weighted-average number of ordinary shares outstanding - basic 349,603,701  240,656,864 
Dilutive effect of equity-based compensation and warrants 3,844,884  — 
Weighted-average number of ordinary shares outstanding - diluted 353,448,585  240,656,864 
Net income per share attributable to common shareholders
Basic $ 0.09  $ (0.87)
Diluted 0.09  (0.87)

Additional stock awards and warrants were outstanding during the three months ended March 31, 2020, but were not included in the computation of diluted earnings per common share because the effect would be anti-dilutive. Such anti-dilutive awards and warrants represented 5.4 million and 33.5 million shares for the three months ended March 31, 2020, respectively.

(15) COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES

The Company is a party to a number of pending legal proceedings and claims, including those involving general and product liability and other matters. The Company accrues for such liabilities when it is probable that future costs will be incurred and such costs can be reasonably estimated. Accruals are based on developments to date; management’s estimates of the outcomes of these matters; the Company’s experience in contesting, litigating and settling similar matters; and any related insurance coverage. While the Company believes that a material adverse impact is unlikely, given the inherent uncertainty of litigation, a future development in these matters could have a material adverse impact on the Company. The Company is unable to estimate any additional loss or range of loss that may result from the ultimate resolution of these matters, other than those described below.

On May 10, 2018, the jury in the case of Bladeroom Group Limited, et al. v. Facebook, Inc., Emerson Electric Co., Emerson Network Power Solutions, Inc. (now known as Vertiv Solutions, Inc.) and Liebert Corporation returned a verdict in favor of the plaintiff in the amount of $30.0. The jury found the defendants breached a confidentiality agreement with Bladeroom, were unjustly enriched by such breach, improperly disclosed or used certain of the plaintiff’s trade secrets and the misappropriation of such trade secrets was willful and malicious. On March 11, 2019, the court entered orders in the case affirming the original award of $30.0 and imposing an additional award for punitive damages of $30.0 as well as attorney fees and interest. Under the terms of the purchase agreement with Emerson, the Company is indemnified for damages arising out of or relating to this case, including the above amounts. On August 12, 2019, judgment was entered, confirming the award entered on March 11, 2019. Emerson has submitted an appeal, and in connection with the appeal has submitted a surety bond underwritten by a third-party insurance company in the amount of $120.1. As of March 31, 2021, the Company had accrued $96.1 in accrued expenses, the full amount of the judgment, and recorded an offsetting indemnification receivable of $96.1 in other current assets related to this matter.

On December 28, 2017, Vertiv acquired Energy Labs, Inc. (“Energy Labs”). The purchase agreement contained a provision for contingent consideration in the form of an earn-out payment based on the achievement of 2018 operating results. The range of outcomes was zero to $34.5. On June 4, 2019, Vertiv notified the selling shareholders of Energy Labs of Vertiv’s determination that the applicable 2018 operating results had not been achieved and that no contingent
24

consideration was due to the selling shareholders. On September 6, 2019, the selling shareholders of Energy Labs notified Vertiv of their dispute regarding the contingent consideration due to them. The selling shareholders assert that the applicable 2018 operating results were exceeded and that Vertiv owes $34.5 in earn-out, the highest amount of earn-out possible under the agreement. As of March 31, 2021 and December 31, 2020, the Company had accrued $2.8 in accrued expenses. Discovery is underway and a trial has been scheduled for February 2022. While Vertiv believes it has meritorious defenses against the assertions of the selling shareholders of Energy Labs, Vertiv is unable at this time to predict the outcome of this dispute. If Vertiv is unsuccessful, the ultimate resolution of this dispute could result in a loss of up to $31.7 in excess of the $2.8 accrued as well as costs and legal fees.

At March 31, 2021, there were no known contingent liabilities (including guarantees, taxes and other claims) that management believes will be material in relation to the Company’s consolidated financial statements, nor were there any material commitments outside the normal course of business other than those described above.

Overview

We are a global leader in the design, manufacturing and servicing of critical digital infrastructure technology that powers, cools, deploys, secures and maintains electronics that process, store and transmit data. We provide this technology to data centers, communication networks and commercial and industrial environments worldwide. We aim to help create a world where critical technologies always work, and where we empower the vital applications of the digital world.

Key Developments

Below is a summary of selected key developments affecting our business during first quarter 2021:

On March 10, 2021, Vertiv Group Corporation, a Delaware corporation (the “Borrower”) and an indirect wholly owned subsidiary of Vertiv Holdings Co, Vertiv Intermediate Holding II Corporation, a Delaware corporation
(“Holdings”) and the direct parent of Vertiv Group, and certain direct and indirect subsidiaries of the Borrower
entered into an Amendment No. 1 to Term Loan Credit Agreement (the "Term Loan Amendment") with Citibank,
N.A., as administrative agent (in such capacity, the “Term Agent”), and the lenders party thereto, which Term Loan
Amendment amended the Term Loan Credit Agreement, dated as of March 2, 2020 (as amended by the Term
Loan Amendment, the “Term Loan Credit Agreement”), by and among Holdings, the Borrower, the Term Agent and
the lenders from time to time party thereto, to, among other things, reduce the interest rate margin for the
Borrower’s outstanding term loans under the Term Loan Credit Agreement by 0.25%, to 2.75% in respect of term
loans bearing interest based on the LIBOR rate and to 1.75% in respect of term loans bearing interest based on a
base rate defined in the Term Loan Credit Agreement. The maturity date for such term loans remains March 2,
2027, and all other material provisions of the Original Term Loan Credit Agreement re main materially
unchanged.
On December 17, 2020, the Company announced its plans to redeem for cash all of its outstanding public warrants to purchase shares of our Class A common shares. In December 2020, $156.5 of cash was generated from the exercise of 13.6 million public warrants. In January 2021, 9.3 million public warrants were exercised generating cash proceeds of $107.5. Public warrants that remained unexercised as of 5 p.m. New York City time on January 19, 2021 were no longer exercisable, and the registered holders of such unexercised public warrants became entitled to receive the redemption price of $0.01 per warrant. All public warrants were exercised or redeemed as of January 22, 2021.

As previously disclosed in our 2020 Form 10-K/A as filed on April 30, 2021, we restated the Company’s previously issued consolidated financial statements as of and for the year ended December 31, 2020, as well each of the quarters within 2020 to make the necessary accounting corrections related to warrant accounting.

Net Sales

Net sales were $1,098.4 in Q1 2021, an increase of $201.1, or 22.4 percent, compared with $897.3 in Q1 2020. The increase in sales was primarily driven by recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic in the APAC segment coupled with demand gains in critical infrastructure and solutions. By offering, critical infrastructure & solutions sales increased $166.4 including the positive impacts from foreign currency of $14.4. Services & spares sales increased $15.5, including positive impacts from foreign currency of $7.8. Integrated rack solutions sales increased $19.2 including the positive impacts from foreign currency of $3.7.

Excluding intercompany sales, net sales were $501.5 in the Americas, $357.4 in Asia Pacific and $239.5 in EMEA. Movements in net sales by segment and offering are each detailed in the Business Segments section below.

Cost of Sales

Cost of sales were $740.4 in Q1 2021, an increase of $130.1, or 21.3 percent compared to Q1 2020. The increase in cost of sales was primarily due to the flow-through impact of higher net sales volume. Gross profit was $358.0 in Q1 2021, or 32.6 percent of sales, compared to $287.0, or 32.0 percent of sales in Q1 2020.

Selling, General and Administrative Expenses

Selling, general and administrative expenses (SG&A) were $250.1 in Q1 2021, a decrease of $14.7 compared to Q1 2020. SG&A as a percentage of sales were 22.8 percent in Q1 2021 compared with 29.5 percent in Q1 2020. The decrease in SG&A was primarily the result of fixed cost reduction actions in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, including discretionary spending cuts, and one-time transaction related bonuses in 2020.

26

Other Operating Expenses

Other operating expenses include amortization of intangibles, restructuring costs, foreign currency (gain) loss, and other operating expense (income). Other expenses was $28.1 for Q1 2021. This was a $6.3 decrease from Q1 2020. The decrease was primarily due to a change in foreign currency (gain) loss of $8.7, partially offset by increased restructuring costs of $3.1.

Loss on Extinguishment of Debt

Loss on extinguishment of debt was $0.4 in Q1 2021 related to lender fees associated with the Term Loan Amendment. This was a $173.6 decrease from the Q1 2020 loss that resulted from the repayment of indebtedness from the Business Combination and the subsequent Refinancing Transactions. In Q1 2020, we recognized a $99.0 write-off of deferred financing fees and a $75.0 early redemption premium on our $500.0 of 12.00%/13.00% Senior PIK Toggle Notes due 2022 (the “2022 Senior Notes”), $750.0 of 9.250% Senior Notes due 2024 (“2024 Senior Notes”) and $120.0 of 10.00% Senior Secured Second Lien Notes due 2024 (the “2024 Senior Secured Notes” and, collectively with the 2022 Senior Notes and 2024 Senior Notes, our “Prior Notes”).

Change in Fair Value of Warrant Liabilities

Change in Fair Value of Warrant Liabilities represents the mark- to -market fair value adjustments to the outstanding warrants issued in connection issued in connection with the IPO of GSAH. The change in fair value of the outstanding warrants during Q1 2021 was $13.6. The change in fair value of stock warrants is the result of changes in market prices deriving the value of the financial instruments.

Interest Expense

Interest expense, net, was $24.1 in Q1 2021 compared to $68.9 in Q1 2020. The $44.8 decrease is primarily due to the reduction in outstanding borrowings resulting from the business combination and lower interest rates secured through the debt refinancing, as described in Note 6 to the consolidated financial statements, offset by an increase due to accretion on the Tax Receivable Agreement and net settlement payments on the Company's interest rate swaps.

Income Taxes

Income tax expense was $10.0 in Q1 2021 versus $13.8 in Q1 2020. The effective rate in the year-to-date period is primarily influenced by the mix of income between our U.S. and non-U.S. operations, and reflects the negative impact of Global Intangible Low-Taxed Income (GILTI), which is partially offset by changes in valuation allowance in the U.S. For the three months ended March 31, 2020, income tax expense was primarily influenced by the mix of income between our U.S. and non-U.S. operations and changes in valuation allowance offsetting the tax effect in the U.S. and certain other jurisdictions as well as discrete tax adjustments related to remeasurement and legislative changes impacting the indefinite reinvestment liability and changes in the liability for uncertain tax positions.

The Q1 2021 tax expense is lower than Q1 2020 primarily due to the change in mix of income, non-U.S. tax incentives and changes in valuation allowances in the U.S.

The effective tax rate in Q1 2020 reflected the effect of significant valuation allowances offsetting tax benefits otherwise generated by losses in that period. The effective tax rate in Q1 2021 reflects a more customary relationship between tax expense and pre-tax results, as profits were generated more consistently across jurisdictions than in the prior period.

Business Segments

The following is detail of business segment results for the three months ended March 31, 2021. Segment profitability is defined as operating profit (loss). Segment margin represents segment operating profit (loss) expressed as a percentage of segment net sales. For reconciliations of segment net sales and earnings to the Company’s consolidated results, see Note 13 — Segment Information, of the Company's condensed consolidated financial statements. Segment net sales are presented excluding intercompany sales.

Americas  
(Dollars in millions) Three months ended March 31, 2021 Three months ended March 31, 2020 $ Change % Change
Net sales $ 501.5  $ 466.7  $ 34.8  7.5  %
Operating profit (loss) 126.4  91.5  34.9  38.1  %
Margin 25.2  % 19.6  %

Americas net sales of $501.5 in Q1 2021 increased $34.8, or 7.5 percent from Q1 2020. Sales growth was primarily driven by hyperscale demand in critical infrastructure and solutions, specifically in AC power and thermal product lines. By offering, net sales increased in critical infrastructure & solutions and integrated rack solutions by $39.4 and $2.8, respectively, partially offset by a decrease in service and spares by $7.4. Americas net sales were negatively impacted by foreign currency by approximately $2.2.

Operating profit (loss) in Q1 2021 was $126.4, an increase of $34.9 compared with Q1 2020. Margin improved primarily due to contribution margin improvements (volume leverage), and fixed cost management.

Asia Pacific  
(Dollars in millions) Three months ended March 31, 2021 Three months ended March 31, 2020 $ Change % Change
Net sales $ 357.4  $ 223.9  $ 133.5  59.6  %
Operating profit (loss) 53.1  20.9  32.2  154.1  %
Margin 14.9  % 9.3  %

Asia Pacific net sales were $357.4 in Q1 2021, an increase of $133.5, or 59.6 percent from Q1 2020. Sales increases in this segment were driven by COVID 19 recovery in China and India. Additionally, this segment experienced strong growth in large project lines such as data centers, 5G projects, and wind power. By offering, net sales increased in all offering categories, including gains in critical infrastructure & solutions, integrated rack solutions and service & spares of $100.0, $17.3 and $16.2, respectively. Additionally, Asia Pacific net sales were positively impacted by foreign currency of approximately $13.6.

Operating profit (loss) in Q1 2021 was $53.1, an increase of $32.2 compared with Q1 2020. Margin improvements were driven by leverage of fixed costs from high volume.

Europe, Middle East & Africa
(Dollars in millions) Three months ended March 31, 2021 Three months ended March 31, 2020 $ Change % Change
Net sales $ 239.5  $ 206.7  $ 32.8  15.9  %
Operating profit (loss) 33.4  20.8  12.6  60.6  %
Margin 13.9  % 10.1  %

EMEA net sales were $239.5 in Q1 2021, an increase of $32.8, or 15.9 percent from Q1 2020. Sales increases were primarily due to deployment of large Colocation data centers in Europe. By product offering category, critical infrastructure & solutions and service & spares increased by $27.0 and $6.7, respectively, offset by a decline in integrated rack solutions of $0.9. Additionally, Europe, Middle East & Africa net sales were positively impacted by foreign currency of approximately $14.5.

Operating profit (loss) in Q1 2021 was $33.4, an increase of $12.6 compared with Q1 2020. Margin improved primarily due to fixed cost savings and contribution margin improvements (volume leverage, operation productivity, and pricing).

Vertiv Corporate and Other

Corporate and other costs include costs associated with our headquarters located in Columbus, Ohio, as well as centralized global functions including Finance, Treasury, Risk Management, Strategy & Marketing, IT, Legal, and global product platform development and offering management. Corporate and other costs were $108.2 and $111.2 in Q1 2021 and Q1 2020, respectively.

28

Capital Resources and Liquidity

Our primary future cash needs relate to working capital, operating activities, capital spending, strategic investments and debt service. In connection with the consummation of the Business Combination on February 7, 2020, the Company used $1,464.0 of the proceeds from the Merger Consideration and PIPE Investment to pay down its existing debt. On March 2, 2020, Vertiv announced the closing of a new seven-year $2,200.0 term loan, the proceeds of which were used to repay in full its previous term loan and redeem in full its high-yield bonds, including its 9.25% senior notes, 12.0%/13.0% PIK toggle senior notes and 10.0% second-lien notes. On March 10, 2021, we amended our Term Loan Credit Agreement whereby the interest rate margin for our outstanding term loans under the Credit Agreement was reduced by 0.25% to 2.75%. The maturity date for such term loan remains March 2, 2027, and all other material provisions of the Credit Agreement remain materially unchanged. Additionally, Holdings, Vertiv Group and certain of its subsidiaries closed an amendment on their $455.0 ABL Revolving Credit Facility which extended the maturity to March 2, 2025.

In addition to the cash inflow generated from the closing of the merger with GSAH, we believe that net cash provided by operating activities, augmented by long-term debt arrangements and the ABL Revolving Credit Facility, will provide adequate near-term liquidity for the next 12 months of independent operations, as well as the resources necessary to invest for growth in existing businesses and manage our capital structure on a short- and long-term basis. We expect to continue to opportunistically access the capital markets and financing markets from time to time. Access to capital and the availability of financing on acceptable terms in the future will be affected by many factors, including our credit rating, economic conditions, and the overall liquidity of capital markets. There can be no assurance that we will continue to have access to the capital markets and financing markets on acceptable terms.

At March 31, 2021, we had $677.2 in cash and cash equivalents, which includes amounts held outside of the U.S., primarily in Europe and Asia. Non-U.S. cash is generally available for repatriation without legal restrictions, subject to certain taxes, mainly withholding taxes. We are not asserting indefinite reinvestment of cash or outside basis for our non-U.S. subsidiaries due to the outstanding debt obligations in instances where alternative repatriation options other than dividends are not available. Our ABL Revolving Credit Facility provides for up to $455.0 of revolving borrowings, with separate sublimits for letters of credit and swingline borrowings and an uncommitted accordion of up to $145.0. At March 31, 2021, Vertiv Group and certain other subsidiaries of the Company had $433.9 of availability under the ABL Revolving Credit Facility, net of letters of credit outstanding in the aggregate principal amount of $21.1, and taking into account the borrowing base limitations set forth in the ABL Revolving Credit Facility.

Long-Term Debt Obligations

There is a discussion in Note 6 — Debt of the consolidated financial statements of the long-term debt arrangements issued by the Company with certain of our subsidiaries named as guarantors or co-borrowers.

Summary Statement of Cash Flows

Three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020

(Dollars in millions) 2021 2020 $ Change % Change
Net cash provided by (used for) operating activities $ 60.7  $ (194.7) $ 255.4  (131.2) %
Net cash used for investing activities (17.9) (8.5) (9.4) 110.6 
Net cash provided by financing activities 102.9  279.3  (176.4) (63.2)
Capital expenditures (16.8) (6.7) (10.1) 150.7 
Investments in capitalized software (1.1) (1.8) 0.7  (38.9)

Net Cash provided by (used for) Operating Activities

Net cash provided by operating activities was $60.7 in Q1 2021, a $255.4 increase in cash generation compared to Q1 2020. The increase in cash generation was primarily driven by higher sales and operating profit, lower cash paid for interest expense as a result of debt pay down and refinancing, improved trade working capital, and reduced one-time costs associated with the SPAC transactions in Q1 2020.

29

Net Cash used for Investing Activities.

Net cash used for investing activities was $17.9 in Q1 2021 compared to net cash used for investing activities of $8.5 in Q1 2020. The increased use of cash over the comparable period was primarily the result of increased capital expenditures.

Net Cash provided by Financing Activities

Net cash provided by financing activities was $102.9 in Q1 2021 compared to $279.3 in Q1 2020. The decrease in cash generation was primarily the result of Q1 2020 having many non-recurring financing activities such as the proceeds from the Business Combination of $1.827.0 partially offset by payments to the Vertiv Stockholder of $341.6 and repayments of Prior Notes of $1,370. Additionally, there were net borrowings on the ABL and Term Loan of $131.1 and $119.0, respectively. In Q1 2021, the financial activity was driven by proceeds from the exercise of warrants totaling $107.5.

Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates

The preparation of financial statements and related disclosures in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the condensed financial statements, and income and expenses during the periods reported. Actual results could materially differ from those estimates. The preceding discussion and analysis of our consolidated results of operations and financial condition should be read in conjunction with our condensed consolidated financial statements included elsewhere in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q. The 2020 financial statements, as restated as part of our Form 10-K/A filed on April 30, 2021, includes additional information about us, our operations, our financial condition, our critical accounting policies and accounting estimates, and should be read in conjunction with this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q. Our significant accounting policies are described in Note 1 - Summary of Significant Accounting Policies of Form 10-K/A.

This Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, and other statements that Vertiv may make, may contain forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, with respect to Vertiv’s future financial or business performance, strategies or expectations, and as such are not historical facts. This includes, without limitation, statements regarding the financial position, capital structure, indebtedness, business strategy and plans and objectives of Vertiv management for future operations. These statements constitute projections, forecasts and forward-looking statements, and are not guarantees of performance. Vertiv cautions that forward-looking statements are subject to numerous assumptions, risks and uncertainties, which change over time. Such statements can be identified by the fact that they do not relate strictly to historical or current facts.

The forward-looking statements contained or incorporated by reference in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q are based on current expectations and beliefs concerning future developments and their potential effects on Vertiv. There can be no assurance that future developments affecting Vertiv will be those that Vertiv has anticipated. Vertiv undertakes no obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as may be required under applicable securities laws. These forward-looking statements involve a number of risks, uncertainties (some of which are beyond Vertiv’s control) or other assumptions that may cause actual results or performance to be materially different from those expressed or implied by these forward-looking statements. Should one or more of these risks or uncertainties materialize, or should any of the assumptions prove incorrect, actual results may vary in material respects from those projected in these forward-looking statements.

Forward-looking statements included in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q speak only as of the date of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q or any earlier date specified for such statements. The Company undertakes no obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as may be filed with the SEC by Vertiv required under applicable securities laws.

ITEM 3. QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK

On a regular basis, Vertiv monitors third-party depository institutions that hold its cash and short-term investments, primarily for safety of principal and secondarily for maximizing yield on those funds. The Company diversifies its cash and short-term investments among counterparties to minimize exposure to any one of these entities. Vertiv also monitors the creditworthiness of its customers and suppliers to mitigate any adverse impact.

Vertiv uses derivative instruments to manage exposure to volatility in interest rates on certain debt instruments. Derivative financial instruments used by the Company are straightforward and non-leveraged. The counterparties to these instruments are financial institutions with strong credit ratings. Vertiv maintains control over the size of positions entered into with any one counterparty and regularly monitors the credit rating of these institutions. See Note 11 to the Unaudited Consolidated Financial Statements for additional information about hedges and derivative financial instruments.

ITEM 4. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

The term "disclosure controls and procedures" is defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 as "controls and other procedures of an issuer that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by the issuer in the reports that it files or submits under the Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported, within the time periods specified in the Securities and Exchange Commission’s rules and forms." Our disclosure controls and procedures are designed to ensure that material information relating to us and our consolidated subsidiaries is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our President and Chief Executive Officer and our Chief Financial Officer, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding our required disclosures.

Our management, with the participation of our President and Chief Executive Officer and our Chief Financial Officer, conducted an evaluation of the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures as of March 31, 2021 (the end of the period covered by this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q). Based upon that evaluation, our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer have concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures were not effective as of March 31, 2021, because of material weaknesses in internal control over financial reporting described below.

Management of the Company is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting as such term is defined in Rules 13a-15(f) and 15d-15(f) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.
Management has assessed the effectiveness of the Company’s internal control over financial reporting as of March 31, 2021 based on criteria established in the Internal Control-Integrated Framework in 2013 issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (COSO).

A material weakness is a deficiency, or a combination of deficiencies, in internal control over financial reporting, such that there is a reasonable possibility that a material misstatement of the Company's annual or interim financial statements will not be prevented or detected on a timely basis.

Management has identified material weaknesses in controls related to (a) not fully designing, implementing and monitoring general information technology controls in the areas of user access and program change-management for systems supporting all of the Company’s internal control processes; and (b) the aggregation of open control deficiencies across the Company’s financial reporting processes because the controls were not fully designed and operating effectively.
32


Notwithstanding the identified material weaknesses, management has concluded that the consolidated financial statements included in this quarterly report on Form 10-Q present fairly, in all material respects, the Company's financial position, results of operations and cash flows for the periods disclosed in conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (U.S. GAAP).

Remediation Plan

We currently are implementing a number of actions, as described below, to remediate the material weaknesses described in this Item 4. Company management is committed to ensuring that our internal controls over financial reporting are designed and operating effectively.

General Information Technology Controls (GITCs)

We continue to make progress in advancing foundational elements of our GITCs. These elements are providing value as we are leveraging them in the design of our future state processes and controls within Oracle, which is expected to go-live in 2021. Our remediation plan includes, but is not limited to:

Implementing new, relevant IT systems;
Implementing improved IT change management policies and procedures, control activities, and tools to ensure changes affecting financial IT applications are identified, authorized, tested, and implemented appropriately;
Implementing improved processes for requesting, authorizing, and reviewing user access to key systems which impact our financial reporting, including identifying access to roles where manual business process controls may be required;
Implementing appropriate segregation of duties in relevant systems that impact internal control over financial reporting;
Increasing resources dedicated to monitoring GITCs to ensure compliance with policies and procedures; and
Implementing additional training to ensure a clear understanding of risk assessment and monitoring activities related to automated processes and IT systems and GITCs.

Financial Reporting

We continue to make progress on our automated and manual business process controls, including reports generated from these IT systems, that are dependent upon the completeness and accuracy of information from the affected GITC material weakness. These elements are providing value as we are leveraging them in the design of our future state processes and controls within Oracle, which is expected to go-live in 2021. Our remediation plan includes, but is not limited to:

Frequent communications between our Audit Committee and management regarding our financial reporting and internal control environment;
Expanded Business Unit Finance, Accounting and Reporting and Information Technology teams through the addition of experienced and qualified resources;
We will improve the process and controls in the determination of the appropriate accounting and classification of our financial instruments and key agreements;
Delivery of additional internal controls training, as well as policy and control standardization where possible;
Re-designed internal controls processes as part of our Sarbanes-Oxley program to drive accountability and efficiency;
Instituted monthly review of financial statements disaggregated by key business units, and functional areas to evaluate results, observe adherence to policies and agree on necessary actions;
Engaged outside resources to assist with the design and implementation of a risk-based internal controls plan, enhance process documentation, provide company-wide training, and help with management's self-assessment and testing of internal controls.

When fully implemented and operational, we believe the controls we have designed or plan to design will remediate the control deficiencies that have led to the material weaknesses we have identified and strengthen our internal controls over financial reporting.

The material weakness will not be considered remediated until the applicable controls operate for a sufficient period of time and management has concluded, through testing, that these controls are operating effectively.

Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

We have undertaken strategic remediation actions, as discussed above, to address the material weaknesses in our internal controls over financial reporting. These remediation actions continued throughout the quarter ended March 31, 2021 but have not materially affected our internal control over financial reporting.
