4. Acquisition

On April 5, 2007, the Company acquired all of the outstanding shares of TB Wood’s for $24.80 per share, or aggregate consideration of $93.5 million. As part of the TB Wood’s acquisition, the Company retired $18.7 million of TB Wood’s indebtedness and paid $9.2 million to retire options under the TB Wood’s equity plan. TB Wood’s is an established designer, manufacturer and marketer of mechanical and electronic industrial power transmission products.

The TB Wood’s acquisition has been accounted for in accordance with SFAS No. 141. The closing date of the TB Wood’s acquisition was April 5, 2007, and as such, the Company’s consolidated financial statements reflect TB Wood’s results of operations from that date forward.

The Company has not completed its final purchase price allocation. The preliminary value of the acquired assets, assumed liabilities and identified intangibles from the acquisition of TB Wood’s, as presented below, are based upon management’s estimates of fair value as of the date of the acquisition. Goodwill and intangibles recorded in connection with the acquisition of TB Wood’s have not yet been allocated across the business units acquired nor have the values been finalized. The final purchase price allocations are not expected to have a material impact on the Company’s financial position or results of operations. The preliminary purchase price allocation is as follows:

 

Total purchase price, including closing costs of approximately $2.0 million

Net assets acquired

 

$

66,473

 

Excess purchase price over the fair value of net assets acquired

 

$

56,960

 

 

The excess of the purchase price over the fair value of the net assets acquired was recorded as goodwill.

The estimated amounts recorded as intangible assets consist of the following:

 

Customer relationships, subject to amortization

 

$

31,040

 

Trade names and trademarks, not subject to amortization

 

 

11,784

 

Total intangible assets

 

$

42,824

 

 

 

Customer relationships are subject to amortization over their preliminary estimated useful lives of 16 years which is the Company’s preliminary estimate of how long the Company will benefit from the acquired assets.

The following table sets forth the unaudited pro forma results of operations of the Company for the quater and year to date periods ended September 29, 2007 and 2006 as if the Company had acquired TB Wood’s at the beginning of the respective periods. The pro forma information contains the actual operating results of the Company and TB Wood’s with the results prior to April 5, 2007, for TB Wood’s, adjusted to include the pro forma impact of (i) additional interest expense associated with debt issued on April 5, 2007 in

connection with the TB Wood’s Acquisition; (ii) additional depreciation expense as a result of estimated depreciation on fair value of fixed assets; (iii) additional expense as a result of estimated amortization of identifiable intangible assets; (iv) and an adjustment to the tax provision for the tax effect of the above adjustments. The unaudited pro-forma financial information for the year to date period ended September 29, 2007 includes a non-recurring charge to step-up the value of acquired inventory sold of $0.7 million. These pro forma amounts do not purport to be indicative of the results that would have actually been obtained if the acquisitions occurred at the beginning of the respective periods or that may be obtained in the future.

During 2006, the Company purchased all of the outstanding share capital of Hay Hall for $51.0 million, including $1.8 million of closing costs. The Company completed its final purchase price allocation during 2006, which resulted in the Company recording approximately $12.4 million in goodwill. In addition, the Company recorded $16.4 million in intangible assets.

5. Inventories

Inventories located at certain subsidiaries acquired in connection with the TB Wood’s acquisition are stated at the lower of current cost or market, principally using the last-in, first-out (LIFO) method. All of the Company's remaining subsidiaries are stated at the lower of cost or market, using the first-in, first-out (FIFO) method. Market is defined as net realizable value. Inventories at September 29, 2007 and December 31, 2006 consisted of the following:

In the year to date and quarter to date period ended September 29, 2007, the LIFO reserve increased $0.3 million and $0.1 million, respectively, which was recorded as a component of costs of sales in the accompanying condensed consolidated statement of income and comprehensive income.

8. Income Taxes

The estimated effective income tax rates recorded for the quarters ended September 29, 2007 and 2006 were recorded based upon management’s best estimate of the effective tax rate for the entire year. The change in the effective tax rate from 37.8% at September 29, 2006 to 35.4% at September 29, 2007, principally relates to a change in the earnings mix among tax jurisdictions. The 2007 tax rate differs from the statutory rate due to the impact of non-U.S. tax rates and permanent differences.
 
The Company adopted the provisions of FASB interpretation No. 48, “Accounting for Uncertainty in Income Taxes – an interpretation of FASB 109” (“FIN 48”) as of January 1, 2007. In accordance with the transition provisions of FIN 48, the cumulative effect of applying the pronouncement has been reported as an adjustment to the January 1, 2007 balance of retained earnings. As a result of the adoption, the Company recorded an increase to its tax reserves and a decrease to retained earnings in the amount of $0.2 million. FIN 48 provides a comprehensive model for the financial statement recognition, measurement, presentation and disclosure of uncertain tax positions taken or expected to be taken in income tax returns.
 
As of January 1, 2007, the company had $2.3 million of unrecognized tax benefits, of which $1.2 million, if recognized would reduce the company’s effective tax rate and $0.9 million would result in a decrease in goodwill. As a result of the acquisition of TB Wood’s completed during the second quarter, the Company increased its unrecognized tax benefits by approximately $3.3 million.
 
At September 29, 2007, the Company had $6.4 million of unrecognized tax benefits, of which $2.0 million, if recognized would reduce the Company’s effective tax rate and $4.2 million would result in a decrease to goodwill.
 
Included in the balance of unrecognized tax benefits are amounts related to proposed tax filing positions which were under review by foreign taxing authorities. Subsequent to September 29, 2007, the Company received resolution from the foreign tax authorities regarding these tax positions. As a result, the Company will reverse approximately $1.8 million of unrecognized tax benefits, which will reduce the Company’s effective tax rate in the fourth quarter of 2007.
 
The Company and its subsidiaries file consolidated and separate income tax returns in the U.S. federal jurisdiction as well as in various state and foreign jurisdictions. In the normal course of business, the Company is subject to examination by taxing authorities in all of these jurisdictions. With the exception of certain foreign jurisdictions, the Company is no longer subject to income tax examinations for the tax years prior to 2004 in these major jurisdictions. Additionally, the Company has indemnification agreements with the sellers of the Colfax and Hay Hall entities, which provides for reimbursement to the Company for payments made in satisfaction of tax liabilities relating to pre-acquisition periods.
 

The Company recognizes interest and penalties related to unrecognized tax benefits as a component of income tax expense in the condensed consolidated statements of income and comprehensive income.. At January 1, 2007 and September 29, 2007, the Company had $0.3 million and $1.6 million of accrued interest and penalties, respectively.

9. Pension and Other Employee Benefits

Defined Benefit (Pension) and Postretirement Benefit Plans

The Company sponsors various defined benefit (pension) and postretirement (medical and life insurance coverage) plans for certain, primarily unionized, active employees (those in the employment of the Company at or hired since November 30, 2004). Additionally, the Company assumed all post-employment and post-retirement welfare benefit obligations with respect to active U.S. employees.

10. Long-Term Debt

Revolving Credit Agreement

The Company maintains a $30 million revolving borrowings facility with a commercial bank (the “Revolving Credit Agreement”) through its wholly owned subsidiary Altra Industrial Motion, Inc. (Altra Industrial). The Revolving Credit Agreement is subject to certain limitations resulting from the requirement of Altra Industrial to maintain certain levels of collateralized assets, as defined in the Revolving Credit Agreement. Altra Industrial may use up to $10.0 million of its availability under the Revolving Credit Agreement for standby letters of credit issued on its behalf, the issuance of which will reduce the amount of borrowings that would otherwise be available to Altra Industrial. Altra Industrial may re-borrow any amounts paid to reduce the amount of outstanding borrowings; however, all borrowings under the Revolving Credit Agreement must be repaid in full as of November 30, 2010.

Substantially all of Altra Industrial’s assets have been pledged as collateral against outstanding borrowings under the Revolving Credit Agreement. The Revolving Credit Agreement requires Altra Industrial to maintain a minimum fixed charge coverage ratio (when availability under the line falls below $12.5 million) and imposes customary affirmative covenants and restrictions on Altra Industrial. Altra Industrial was in compliance with all requirements of the Revolving Credit Agreement at September 29, 2007.

There were no borrowings under the Revolving Credit Agreement at September 29, 2007 and December 31, 2006, however, the lender had issued $2.9 million of outstanding letters of credit on behalf of Altra Industrial as of both dates.

In April 2007, Altra Industrial amended the Revolving Credit Agreement. The interest rate on any outstanding borrowings on the line of credit were reduced to the lender’s Prime Rate plus 25 basis points or LIBOR plus 175 basis points. The rate on all outstanding letters of credit were reduced to 1.5% and .25% on any unused availability under the Revolving Credit Agreement. All borrowings under the amended plan must be repaid by November 30, 2010.

The additional $105.0 million has the same terms and conditions as the previously issued Senior Secured Notes. The effective interest rate on the Senior Secured Notes, after the follow-on offering is approximately 9.7% after consideration of the amortization of $5.5 million net discount and $6.5 million of deferred financing costs.

11.25% Senior Notes

On February 8, 2006, Altra Industrial issued 11.25% Senior Notes (“Senior Notes”), with a face value of £33 million.

Assets under capital leases are included in property, plant and equipment with the related amortization recorded as depreciation expense.

11. Stockholder’s Equity

 

In June 2007, the Company closed its secondary public offering of 12,650,000 shares of its common stock, par value $0.001 per share (the “Shares”), which included 1,650,000 sold as a result of the underwriters’ exercise of their overallotment option in full at closing.

There was no Preferred Stock issued or outstanding at September 29, 2007.

 

Stock-Based Compensation

 

The Company’s Board of Directors established the 2004 Equity Incentive Plan (the “Plan”) that provides for various forms of stock based compensation to independent directors, officers and senior-level employees of the Company The restricted shares of common stock issued pursuant to the Plan generally vest ratably over each of the five years from the date of grant, provided, that the vesting of the restricted shares may accelerate upon the occurrence of certain liquidity events, if approved by the Board of Directors in connection with the transactions.

 

The Plan permits the Company to grant restricted stock to key employees and other persons who make significant contributions to the success of the Company. The restrictions and vesting schedule for restricted stock granted under the Plan are determined by the Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors. Compensation expense recorded during the year to date periods ended September 29, 2007 and 2006 was $1.1 million ($0.7 million net of tax) and $0.5 million ($0.3 million, net of tax), respectively and $0.3 million

In December 2006, the Genstar management agreement was terminated. There are no amounts in accruals or other liabilities payable to Genstar as of September 29, 2007.

13.

Concentrations of Credit, Business Risks and Workforce

Financial instruments, which are potentially subject to concentrations of credit risk, consist primarily of trade accounts receivable. The Company manages this risk by conducting credit evaluations of customers prior to delivery or commencement of services. When the Company enters into a sales contract, collateral is normally not required from the customer. Payments are typically

due within thirty days of billing. An allowance for potential credit losses is maintained, and losses have historically been within management’s expectations.

Credit related losses may occur in the event of non-performance by counterparties to financial instruments. Counterparties typically represent international or well established financial institutions.

No one customer represented 10% or more of the Company’s sales for the quarters ended or year to date periods ended September 29, 2007 and 2006.

Approximately 20.2% of the Company’s labor force (15.3% and 48.5% in the United States and Europe, respectively) is represented by collective bargaining agreements.

 

One of our four U.S. collective bargaining agreements expired in August 2007. An agreement was reached in September 2007 with the union that extends the collective bargaining agreement through August 2010. The agreement reached provides for certain wage increases over a three year period, transition of health insurance premiums to a union administered plan and other benefits. In addition, the defined benefit plan will be frozen effective December 31, 2007, with all eligible plan participants transitioned to a 401 (k) defined contribution plan. This is considered a pension curtailment in accordance with SFAS No. 88 (Employer’s Accounting for Settlements and Curtailments of Defined Benefit Plans and for Termination Benefits). The Company evaluated the amendment to the defined benefit plan and concluded that there was no curtailment gain/loss in connection with this change.

Net sales to third parties are attributed to the geographic regions based on the country in which the shipment originates. Amounts attributed to the geographic regions for long-lived assets are based on the location of the entity, which holds such assets.

The net assets of foreign subsidiaries at September 29, 2007 and December 31, 2006 were $70.6 million and $46.8 million, respectively.

The Company has not provided specific product line sales as our general purpose financial statements do not allow us to readily determine groups of similar product sales.

15. Commitments and Contingencies

General Litigation

The Company is involved in various pending legal proceedings arising out of the ordinary course of business. None of these legal proceedings are expected to have a material adverse effect on the financial condition of the Company. With respect to these proceedings, management believes that it will prevail, has adequate insurance coverage or has established appropriate reserves to cover potential liabilities. Any costs that management estimates may be paid related to these proceedings or claims are accrued when the liability is considered probable and the amount can be reasonably estimated. There can be no assurance, however, as to the ultimate outcome of any of these matters, and if all or substantially all of these legal proceedings were to be determined adversely to the Company, there could be a material adverse effect on the financial condition of the Company.

We have been indemnified for certain pre-existing legal and environmental matters for matters prior to certain acquisitions.

16. Restructuring, Asset Impairment and Transition Expenses

Beginning in the first quarter of 2007, the Company adopted a restructuring program intended to improve operational efficiency by reducing headcount, consolidating its operating facilities and relocating manufacturing to lower cost areas. The restructuring charges for the quarter and year to date periods ended September 29, 2007 were approximately $0.2 million and $1.2 million, respectively.

The Company’s asset impairment and losses on sales of assets for the manufacturing consolidation program for the year to date period ended September 29, 2007 were $0.1 million. The Company does not expect any significant additional asset impairment and losses on sale of assets through the completion of this program.

The Company’s total transition expense for the manufacturing consolidation program for the year to date period ended and quarter ended September 29, 2007 was approximately $1.2 million and $0.2 million, respectively.

In connection with the Company’s acquisition of TB Wood’s, the Company adopted a restructuring program intended to consolidate operating facilities and reduce duplicate staffing. The estimated costs of this restructuring program were recorded as a part of purchase accounting and increased goodwill. During the quarter ended September 29, 2007, the Company added $0.7 million to the restructuring accrual for additional restructuring expenses, primarily severance.

17. Subsequent Event

 

On October 19, 2007, the Company acquired substantially all of the assets of All Power Transmission Manufacturing, Inc. (“All Power”) for $7.3 million. Approximately $5.0 million was paid at closing and the remaining $2.3 million of consideration was issued in the form of a note payable, due in installments over a 2 year period.

 

One of our four U.S. collective bargaining agreements expired in September 2007. In October 2007, an agreement was reached which extended the existing collective bargaining agreement. The negotiations also resulted in a provision to close the Erie, Pennsylvania plant by December 2008 through the transfer of manufacturing equipment to other existing facilities and a ratable reduction in headcount.

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

 

The following discussion of the financial condition and results of operations of Altra Holdings, Inc. should be read together with the audited financial statements of Altra Holdings, Inc and related notes included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December   31, 2006 and Form S-1 filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on June 4, 2007. The following discussion includes forward-looking statements. For a discussion of important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from the results referred to in the forward-looking statements, see “Forward-Looking Statements.” in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December   31, 2006 and Form S-1 filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on June 4, 2007.

General

We are a leading multinational designer, producer and marketer of a wide range of mechanical power transmission products. Our product portfolio includes industrial clutches and brakes, enclosed gear drives, open gearing, couplings, machined-race bearings, belted drives and other related products which are sold across a wide variety of industries. Our products serve a wide variety of end markets including general industrial, material handling, mining, power generation, transportation, automotive and turf and garden. We primarily sell our products to OEMs such as John Deere, Carrier and General Electric and through long-standing relationships with industrial distributors such as Motion Industries, Applied Industrial Technologies, Kaman Industrial Technologies, Bearing Distributions, Inc. and W.W. Grainger.

Recent Acquisition

On April 5, 2007, the Company completed its acquisition of TB Wood’s Corporation (“TB Wood’s”) pursuant to a cash tender offer for all of the outstanding shares of TB Wood’s common stock for $24.80 per share. This was followed by a short form merger (the “Merger”) of Forest Acquisition Corporation, the Company’s wholly-owned subsidiary, with and into TB Wood’s. This resulted in TB Wood’s becoming a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company. In connection with the merger, all remaining outstanding shares of TB Wood’s common stock (other than those held by shareholders who properly perfect dissenters’ rights under Delaware law) were converted into the right to receive the same $24.80 cash price per share paid in the tender offer (net of the holder without interest and less any required withholding taxes).

Secondary Public Offering

In June 2007, the Company closed its secondary public offering of 12,650,000 shares of its common stock, par value $0.001 per share (the “Shares”), which included 1,650,000 sold as a result of the underwriters’ exercise of their overallotment option in full at closing. In the offering the Company sold 3,178,494 Shares and certain selling stockholders, including Genstar Capital, the Company’s largest stockholder, sold an aggregate of 9,471,506 Shares.

Critical Accounting Policies

The preparation of our condensed consolidated financial statements and related disclosures in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires management to make judgments, assumptions and estimates that affect our reported amounts of assets, revenues and expenses, as well as related disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities. Management believes there have been no significant changes in our critical accounting policies since December 31, 2006. See the discussion of critical accounting policies in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2006.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

In June 2006, the FASB issued FASB Interpretation No. (“FIN”) 48, “Accounting for Uncertainty in Income Taxes – An Interpretation of FASB Statement No. 109”, which prescribes a recognition threshold and measurement attribute for the financial statement recognition and measurement of a tax position taken or expected to be taken in a tax return. The Company adopted FIN 48 on January 1, 2007. See Note 8 to the condensed consolidated financial statements for the impact of adoption of this pronouncement.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The discussion of EBITDA (earnings before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization) included in the discussion of Results of Operations below is being provided because management considers EBITDA to be an important measure of financial performance. Among other things, management believes that EBITDA provides useful information for our investors because it is useful for trending, analyzing and benchmarking the performance and value of our business. Management also believes that EBITDA is useful in assessing current performance compared with our historical performance because significant line items within our

 

17

statements of operations such as depreciation, amortization and interest expense are significantly impacted by acquisitions. Internally, EBITDA is used as a financial measure to assess the operating performance and is an important measure in our incentive compensation plans.

EBITDA has important limitations, and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of our results as reported under generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (“GAAP”). For example, EBITDA does not reflect:

cash expenditures, or future requirements, for capital expenditures or contractual commitments;

changes in, or cash requirements for, working capital needs;

the significant interest expense, or the cash requirements necessary to service interest or principal payments, on debts;

tax distributions that would represent a reduction in cash available to us; and

any cash requirements for assets being depreciated and amortized that may have to be replaced in the future.

EBITDA is not a recognized measurement under GAAP, and when analyzing our operating performance, investors should use EBITDA in addition to, and not as an alternative for, operating income and net income (each as determined in accordance with GAAP). Because not all companies use identical calculations, our presentation of EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies. The amounts shown for EBITDA also differ from the amounts calculated under similarly titled definitions in our debt instruments, which are further adjusted to reflect certain other cash and non-cash charges and are used to determine compliance with financial covenants and our ability to engage in certain activities, such as incurring additional debt and making certain restricted payments.

To compensate for the limitations of EBITDA we utilize several GAAP measures to review our performance. These GAAP measures include, but are not limited to, net income, operating income, cash provided by (used in) operations, cash provided by (used in) investing activities and cash provided by (used in) financing activities. These important GAAP measures allow our management to, among other things, review and understand our uses of cash period to period, compare our operations with competitors on a consistent basis and understand the revenues and expenses matched to each other for the applicable reporting period. We believe that the use of these GAAP measures, supplemented by the use of EBITDA, allows us to have a greater understanding of our performance and allows us to adapt to changing trends and business opportunities.

Quarter Ended September 29, 2007 Compared with Quarter Ended September 29 , 2006

Net sales. Net sales increased by $44.0 million, or 39.0%, from $113.0 million for the quarter ended September 29, 2006 to $157.0 million for the quarter ended September 29, 2007. The increase in sales was primarily due to the inclusion of TB Wood’s which contributed $30.3 million. The remaining increase was driven by strong sales in the aerospace and defense, material handling, motion control, energy and mining markets.

Gross profit. Gross profit increased by $14.6 million, or 48.1%, from $30.4 million (26.9% of net sales), for the quarter ended September 29, 2006 to $45.1 million (28.7% of net sales) for the same period of 2007. The increase is primarily due to the inclusion of TB Wood’s during the third quarter 2007, price increases, additional low cost country material sourcing and implementation of productivity improvements.

Selling, general and administrative expenses. Selling, general and administrative expenses increased by $5.1 million, or 26.0%, from $19.5 million for the quarter ended September 29, 2006 to $24.6 million for the quarter ended September 29, 2007. The increase in selling, general and administrative expenses is primarily due to the inclusion of TB Wood’s in the quarter ended September 29, 2007, additional amortization of intangible assets associated with the TB Wood’s acquisition and increased costs associated with being a public company, partially offset by the termination of the management advisory fee agreement and the elimination of certain duplicate costs related to the TB Wood’s acquisition.

Research and development expenses. Research and development expenses increased by $0.9 million or 70.7% from $1.3 million to $2.2 million. The increase in research and development expense is primarily due to the inclusion of TB Wood’s in the quarter ended September 29, 2007.

Restructuring During the first quarter of 2007, we initiated a restructuring program intended to improve operational efficiency by reducing headcount, consolidating our operating facilities and relocating manufacturing to lower cost areas. We recorded approximately $0.2 million of restructuring expense in the third quarter of 2007.

EBITDA. To reconcile net income to EBITDA for the quarter ended September 29, 2007, we added back to net income $2.0 million provision of income taxes, $11.4 million of interest expense and $5.8 million of depreciation and amortization expenses. To reconcile net income to EBITDA for the quarter ended September 29, 2006, we added back to net income $2.3 million provision of income taxes, $6.6 million of interest expense and $3.6 million of depreciation and amortization expenses. Taking into account the foregoing adjustments, our resulting EBITDA was $23.5 million for the quarter ended September 29, 2007 and $16.2 million for the quarter ended September 29, 2006. The increase is due to the acquisition of TB Wood’s and Warner Linear, price increases, volume, and cost savings measures.

Interest expense. We recorded interest expense of $11.4 million during the quarter ended September 29, 2007, which was an increase of $4.8 million, from the quarter ended September 29, 2006. The increase was due to $2.4 million of interest associated with the Senior Secured Notes that were issued in the second quarter of 2007, $3.3 million pre-payment premium and the write-off of $0.8 million of deferred financing costs associated with the pay-down of the Senior Notes. This was offset by the pay down of the Subordinated Notes during the quarter ended September 29, 2006 and a lower average outstanding balance of 11.25% bonds during Q3 2007. For a description of the Senior Secured Notes, the Senior Notes and the Senior Subordinated Notes please see Note 10 to our Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements in Item I of this Form 10-Q.

 

Provision for income taxes. The provision for income taxes was $2.0 million or 31.7% of income before taxes for the quarter ended September 30, 2007, versus a provision of $2.3 million, or 37.9% of income before taxes for the quarter ended September 30, 2006. The 2007 provision as a percentage of income before taxes was lower than that of 2006, primarily due to the effect of reductions of tax rates in several foreign jurisdictions and change in earnings mix among tax jurisdictions.

Year to Date Ended September 29, 2007 Compared with Year to Date Ended September 29, 2006

Net sales. Net sales increased by $105.3 million, or 30.3%, from $347.5 million for the year to date period ended September 29, 2006 to $452.8 million for the year to date period ended September 29, 2007. Without including the impact of Hay Hall, acquired February 10, 2006, Warner Linear, acquired May 18, 2006, and TB Wood’s, acquired April 5, 2007, sales increased by 9.0%. The increase in sales was driven by strong sales in the aerospace and defense, material handling, motion control, energy and mining markets.

Gross profit. Gross profit increased by $34.5 million, or 36.4%, from $94.6 million (27.2% of net sales), for the year to date period ended September 29, 2006 to $129.0 million (28.5% of net sales) for the same period of 2007. The increase is primarily due to

 

19

the acquisition of TB Wood’s, the inclusion of Hay Hall and Warner Linear for the full year to date period ended September 29, 2007, additional low cost country material sourcing, price increases and implementation of productivity improvements.

Selling, general and administrative expenses. Selling, general and administrative expenses increased by $13.2 million, or 22.9%, from $57.4 million for the year to date period ended September 29, 2006 to $70.5 million for the year to date period ended September 29, 2007. The increase in selling, general and administrative expenses is primarily due to the acquisition of TB Wood’s, the inclusion of Hay Hall and Warner Linear for the full year to date period ended September 29, 2007, additional amortization of intangible assets associated with the TB Wood’s acquisition and increased costs associated with being a public company, partially offset by the termination of the management advisory fee agreement and the elimination of certain duplicate costs related to the TB Wood’s acquisition.

Research and development expenses. Research and development expenses increased by $1.9 million, or 50.9%, from $3.8 million to $5.7 million. The increase is mainly due to the inclusion of TB Wood’s in the year to date period ended September 29, 2007.

Restructuring During the first quarter of 2007, we adopted a restructuring program intended to improve operational efficiency by reducing headcount, consolidating our operating facilities and relocating manufacturing to lower cost areas. We incurred approximately $1.2 million of restructuring expense in the year to date period ended September 29, 2007.

EBITDA. To reconcile net income to EBITDA for the year to date period ended September 29, 2007, we added back to net income $7.1 million provision of income taxes, $31.2 million of interest expense and $16.4 million of depreciation and amortization expenses. To reconcile net income to EBITDA for the year to date period ended September 29, 2006, we added back to net income $6.5 million provision of income taxes, $19.4 million of interest expense and $10.3 million of depreciation and amortization expenses. Taking into account the foregoing adjustments, our resulting EBITDA was $67.6 million for the year to date period ended September 29, 2007 and $46.9 million for the year to date period ended September 29, 2006. The increase is due to the acquisitions of TB Wood’s, inclusion of Hay Hall and Warner Linear for the full year to date period, price increases, volume, cost savings measures and the termination of the management advisory services agreement.

Interest expense. We recorded interest expense of $31.2 million during the year to date period ended September 29, 2007, which was an increase of $11.8 million, from the year to date period ended September 29, 2006. The increase was due to the $4.6 million in interest associated with the additional $105 million of the Senior Secured notes being outstanding for 6 months of 2007, the interest associated with Senior Notes outstanding for an additional six weeks during the first quarter of 2007 of $0.8 million, the $7.5 million pre-payment premium and the write-off of $2.0 million of deferred financing costs associated with the pay-down of the Senior Notes. The increase was partially offset by a decrease in interest expense on the Senior Notes after the February redemption and June and September pay-downs and the Subordinated Notes due to pay down on these notes during the first three quarters of 2007 and 2006. For a description of the Senior Notes and Senior Secured Notes, please see Note 10 to our Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements in Item I of this Form 10-Q.

 

Provision for income taxes. The provision for income taxes was $7.1 million, or 35.4%, of income before taxes for the year to date period ended September 29, 2007, versus a provision of $6.5 million, or 37.8%, of income before taxes, for the year to date period ended September 29, 2006. The reduction in the 2007 provision from the 2006 provision principally relates to the effect of reductions of tax rates in several foreign jurisdictions and a change in earnings mix among tax jurisdictions.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

Net Cash

Cash and cash equivalents totaled $30.0 million at September 29, 2007 compared to $42.5 million at December 31, 2006. Net cash used in operating activities for the year to date period ended September 29, 2007 resulted mainly from cash provided by net income of $12.9 million and the add-back of non-cash depreciation, amortization, stock based compensation, amortization of inventory fair value adjustment, disposal of fixed assets, loss on foreign currency, accretion of debt discount/premium and deferred financing costs of $22.2 million and a decrease in other current assets and liabilities of $4.1 million offset by a net increase in trade receivables and inventories of $9.2 million and a decrease in accounts payable and accrued liabilities of $8.4 million.

Net cash used in investing activities of $124.7 million for the year to date period ended September 29, 2007 resulted from $117.9 million, net used in the purchase of TB Wood’s and $6.8 million used in the purchases of property, plant and equipment primarily for investment in manufacturing equipment.

Net cash provided by financing activities of $89.3 million for the year to date period ended September 29, 2007 consisted primarily of proceeds from the issuance of Senior Secured Notes for $106.1 million, proceeds from the secondary offering of $49.6

 

20

million and borrowings from the revolving line of credit of $8.3 million. This was offset by the payment of debt issuance costs of $3.7 million, payments on the revolving line of credit for $9.8 million, the payment of $58.4 million on the Senior Notes, payment of public offering costs of $2.0 million, payments on mortgages of $0.2 and payments of capital lease obligations of $0.5 million.

Net cash flow used in operating activities, for the year to date period ended September 29, 2006 resulted mainly from cash provided by net income of $10.7 million and the add-back of non-cash depreciation, amortization, stock based compensation, accretion of debt discount, amortization of deferred financing costs, amortization of inventory fair value adjustment, disposal of fixed assets, loss on foreign currency, gain on curtailment of post-retirement benefits and the provision for deferred taxes of $12.8 million, and a net increase in other current assets and other operating assets of $0.5 million offset by an increase in trade receivables and inventories of $3.7 million and a decrease in accounts payable and accrued liabilities of $9.4 million.

Net cash used in investing activities of $60.4 million for the year to date period ended September 29, 2006 resulted from $50.7 million used in the purchase of Hay Hall, $3.6 million for the purchase of Bear Linear and $6.1 million used in the purchases of property, plant and equipment primarily for investment in manufacturing equipment and for the consolidation of our IT infrastructure.

Net cash provided by financing activities of $45.0 million for the year to date period ended September 29, 2006 resulted primarily from the proceeds of $57.6 million from the issuance of the Senior Notes in connection with the Hay Hall Acquisition, proceeds from mortgages of $2.5 million offset by payments made on the senior subordinated debt of $12.5, payments on capital leases of $0.1 million and debt issuance costs of $2.5 million.

Liquidity

Our primary source of liquidity will be cash flow from operations and borrowings under our senior revolving credit facility. See Note 10 to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements for explanation of our senior revolving credit facility. We expect that our primary ongoing requirements for cash will be for working capital, debt service, capital expenditures and pension plan funding.

We incurred substantial indebtedness in connection with the Colfax Corporation, Hay Hall and TB Wood’s acquisitions. As of September 29, 2007, taking into account these transactions, we had approximately $300.8 million of total indebtedness outstanding (including capital leases and mortgages). We expect our interest expense, arising from our existing debt, to be approximately $28.7` million on an annual basis, through the maturity of the Senior Secured Notes, in 2011.

Our senior revolving credit facility provides for senior secured financing of up to $30.0 million, including $10.0 million available for letters of credit. As of September 29, 2007, there were no outstanding borrowings and $2.9 million of outstanding letters of credit under our senior revolving credit facility.

We had $11.3 million outstanding on the TB Wood’s revolving credit facility as of September 29, 2007. No additional borrowing are allowed under this agreement. As of September 29, 2007, there was $11.3 million outstanding under the TB Wood’s Credit Agreement, and $6.5 million of outstanding letters of credit.

We made capital expenditures of approximately $6.8 million and $6.1 million in the year to date periods ended September 29, 2007 and September 29, 2006, respectively. These capital expenditures will support on-going business needs.

We have cash funding requirements associated with our pension plan which are estimated to be $0.6 million during the remainder of 2007, $3.8 million in 2008, and $1.9 million thereafter.

Our ability to make scheduled payments of principal and interest, to fund planned capital expenditures and to meet our pension plan funding obligations will depend on our ability to generate cash in the future. Based on our current level of operations, we believe that cash flow from operations and available cash, together with available borrowings under our senior revolving credit facility will be adequate to meet our future liquidity requirements for at least the next two years. However, our ability to generate cash is subject to general economic, financial, competitive, legislative, regulatory and other factors that are beyond our control. See the section entitled “ Changes in general economic conditions or the cyclical nature of our markets could harm our operations and financial performance” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2006 for further discussion .

We cannot assure you that our business will generate sufficient cash flow from operations, that any revenue growth or operating improvements will be realized or that future borrowings will be available under our senior secured credit facility in an amount sufficient to enable us to service our indebtedness, including the notes, or to fund our other liquidity needs. In addition, we cannot assure you that we will be able to refinance any of our indebtedness, including our senior revolving credit facility and the notes as they become due. Our ability to access capital in the long term will depend on the availability of capital markets and pricing on commercially reasonable terms at the time we are seeking funds. See the section entitled “Our substantial level of indebtedness could adversely affect our financial condition, harm our ability to react to changes to our business and prevent us from fulfilling our

 

21

obligations on the notes.” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2006 for further discussion. In addition, our ability to borrow funds under our senior revolving credit facility will depend on our ability to satisfy the financial and non-financial covenants contained in that facility.

Contractual Obligations

During the year to date period ended September 29, 2007 the Company redeemed £29.1 million aggregate principal amount of their outstanding Senior Notes. As of September 29, 2007, the remaining principal balance was £3.9 million, or approximately $7.9 million. The remaining principal balance is due February 13, 2013.

In April 2007, we completed a follow-on offering of an aggregate of $105.0 million of the existing Senior Secured Notes. As of September 29, 2007, the remaining principal balance on our Senior Secured Notes was $270.0 million. The balance is due December 1, 2011.

In connection with the TB Wood’s acquisition, we assumed $5.3 million of variable rate demand revenue bonds. $3.0 million of these bonds mature in 2024 and $2.3 million mature in 2022. In addition, we refinanced concurrent with the acquisition $13.0 million of TB Wood’s revolving credit agreement. Payments of $0.4 million are due over the remainder of 2007. Payments of $1.5 million are due in the years 2008 and 2009. The remaining $7.9 million is due in 2010.

Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures about Market Risk

Information concerning market risk is contained in the Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations contained in our Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission for the year ended December 31, 2006 and Form S-1 filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on June 4, 2007. There were no material changes in our exposure to market risk from December 31, 2006.

Item 4. Controls and Procedures

Our management, with the participation of the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, evaluated the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”)), as of September 29, 2007.

In designing and evaluating the disclosure controls and procedures, management recognizes that any controls and procedures, no matter how well designed and operated, can provide only reasonable assurance of achieving the desired control objectives.

Based on our evaluation, our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures are designed at a reasonable assurance level and are effective to provide reasonable assurance that information we are required to disclose in reports that we file or submit under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in Securities and Exchange Commission rules and forms, and that such information is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, as appropriate, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

There has been no change in our internal control over financial reporting (as defined in Rules 13(a)-15(f) and 15(d)-15(f) under the Exchange Act) that occurred during our fiscal quarter ended September 29, 2007, that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

PART II—OTHER INFORMATION

Item 1. Legal Proceedings

The Company is involved in various pending legal proceedings arising out of its ordinary course of business. None of these legal proceedings is expected to have a material adverse effect on the financial condition of the Company. With respect to these proceedings, management believes that it will prevail, has adequate insurance coverage or has established appropriate reserves to cover potential liabilities. There can be no assurance, however, as to the ultimate outcome of any of these matters, and if all or substantially all of these legal proceedings were to be determined adversely to the Company, there could be a material adverse effect on the financial condition of the Company.

Item 1A. Risk Factors

The reader should carefully consider the Risk Factors listed in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2006 andForm S-1 filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on June 4, 2007. These factors could cause our actual results to differ materially from those stated in forward looking statements contained in this Form 10-Q and elsewhere. Management does not believe there have been any material changes in our risk factors as stated in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2006 other than those (i) updated by the risk factors section of the Company’s Form S-1 filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on June 4, 2007 and (ii) as updated by the risk factors stated below. All risk factors stated in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2006 and Form S-1 filed on June 4, 2007 are incorporated herein by reference.

 

We may be subject to work stoppages at our facilities, or our customers may be subjected to work stoppages, which could seriously impact our operations and the profitability of our business.

 

As of September 29, 2007, we had approximately 3,400 full time employees, of whom approximately 42.6% were employed outside the United States. Approximately 500 of our North American employees and 45 of our employees in Scotland are represented by labor unions. In addition, our employees in Europe are generally represented by local and national social works councils that hold discussions with employer industry associations regarding wage and work issues every two to three years. Our European facilities, particularly those in France and Germany, may participate in such discussions and be subject to any agreements reached with employees.

 

Two of our four U.S. collective bargaining agreements will expire June 2, 2008 and February 1, 2009. We may be unable to renew these agreements on terms that are satisfactory to us, if at all. Additionally, approximately 160 employees in the TB Wood’s production facilities in Mexico are unionized under collective bargaining agreements that are subject to annual renewals.

 

One of our four U.S. collective bargaining agreements expired in August 2007. An agreement was reached in September 2007 with the union that extends the collective bargaining agreement through August 2010. The agreement reached provides for certain wage increases over a three year period, transition of health insurance premiums to a union administered plan and other benefits. In addition, the defined benefit plan will be frozen effective December 31, 2007, with all eligible plan participants transitioned to a 401 (k) defined contribution plan. This is considered a pension curtailment in accordance with FASB No. 88 (Employer’s Accounting for Settlements and Curtailments of Defined Benefit Plans and for Termination Benefits). The Company evaluated the amendment to the defined benefit plan and concluded that there was no curtailment gain/loss in connection with this change.

 

One of our four U.S. collective bargaining agreements expired in September 2007. An agreement to close the Erie, Pennsylvania plant was reached. The plant will be closed by December 2009 and the union agreement has been extended through the expected closure date.

 

 

If our unionized workers or those represented by a works council were to engage in a strike, work stoppage or other slowdown in the future, we could experience a significant disruption of our operations. Such disruption could interfere with our ability to deliver products on a timely basis and could have other negative effects, including decreased productivity and increased labor costs. In addition, if a greater percentage of our work force becomes unionized, our business and financial results could be materially adversely affected. Many of our direct and indirect customers have unionized work forces. Strikes, work stoppages or slowdowns experienced by these customers or their suppliers could result in slowdowns or closures of assembly plants where our products are used and could cause cancellation of purchase orders with us or otherwise result in reduced revenues from these customers.
