“With much of the strong U.S. harvest already in the grain bins, and with healthy crop production across Europe and South America, we are experiencing the third consecutive year of robust global harvests,” continued Mr. Richenhagen. “Elevated crop production is pressuring grain prices and farm income, resulting in softer demand for farm equipment. In North America, industry sales have progressively declined through the first nine months of the year. Weaker demand from the large farm sector resulted in significant declines in industry retail sales of high-horsepower tractors, combines and sprayers. More stable sales of hay and forage equipment and small tractors, due to more normal conditions in the livestock sector, has provided a partial offset to the decline in large agricultural equipment. Industry retail sales in Western Europe declined more modestly from 2014 levels. Margins for dairy producers remained weak, and lower commodity prices kept market demand soft from the arable farming segment. Declines were most pronounced in the United Kingdom, Finland and Germany. Industry demand in South America has weakened throughout 2015. The lower sales were driven primarily by significant declines in Brazil due to weakness in the general economy, changes to the government financing program and softness in the sugar sector. Longer term, we are optimistic about the fundamentals supporting commodity prices and farm income as well as healthy growth in our industry.”

North America

Net sales in the North American region decreased 15.7% in the first nine months of 2015 compared to the same period of 2014, excluding the negative impact of currency translation. Inventory reduction efforts and weaker industry demand, particularly from the row crop sector, contributed to lower sales. Declines in sales of sprayers, combines and implements were partially offset by modest growth in sales of protein production products. Lower sales and production volumes and a weaker sales mix contributed to a reduction in income from operations of approximately $71.9 million for the first nine months of 2015 compared to the same period in 2014.

South America

AGCO’s South American net sales decreased 17.7% in the first nine months of 2015 compared to the first nine months of 2014, excluding the impact of unfavorable currency translation. Sales declines in Brazil were partially offset by sales growth in Argentina and other South American markets. Income from operations decreased approximately $55.4 million for the first nine months of 2015 compared to the same period in 2014 due to lower sales and production volumes, the negative impact of currency translation, and a weaker mix of sales.

Europe/Africa/Middle East

Excluding unfavorable currency translation impacts, net sales in EAME declined 5.8% in the first nine months of 2015 compared to the same period in 2014. Sales declines were the largest in Germany, Scandinavia and Russia. Income from operations decreased approximately $82.0 million for the first nine months of 2015, compared to the same period in 2014, due to lower sales and production volumes as well as unfavorable currency translation impacts. These headwinds were partially offset by the benefits of operational efficiencies, SG&A cost reduction initiatives and new product sales.

Asia/Pacific

Net sales in AGCO’s Asia/Pacific region, excluding the negative impact of currency translation, declined 5.9% in the first nine months of 2015 compared to the same period in 2014. Losses from operations increased approximately $19.8 million in the first nine months of 2015, compared to the same period in 2014, due to lower sales and increased market development costs in China.

Outlook

Lower industry demand for farm equipment across all regions and the unfavorable effect of foreign currency translation are expected to continue to negatively impact AGCO’s sales and earnings for the remainder of 2015. AGCO’s 2015 net sales are expected to range from $7.5 to $7.6 billion. Gross and operating margins are expected to be below 2014 levels due to the negative impact of lower sales and production volumes coupled with a weaker sales mix. Benefits from the Company’s restructuring and other cost reduction initiatives and a lower tax rate are expected to partially offset the volume-related impacts. Based on these assumptions, 2015 earnings per share are targeted at approximately $3.20, excluding restructuring and other infrequent expenses.

Safe Harbor Statement

Statements that are not historical facts, including the projections of earnings per share, sales, industry demand, market conditions, commodity prices, currency translation, farm income levels, margin levels, investments in product and technology development, restructuring and other cost reduction initiatives, production volumes, tax rates, and general economic conditions, are forward-looking and subject to risks that could cause actual results to differ materially from those suggested by the statements. The following are among the factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from the results discussed in or implied by the forward-looking statements.

  • Our financial results depend entirely upon the agricultural industry, and factors that adversely affect the agricultural industry generally, including declines in the general economy, increases in farm input costs, lower commodity prices, lower farm income and changes in the availability of credit for our retail customers, will adversely affect us.
  • A majority of our sales and manufacturing take place outside the United States, and, as a result, we are exposed to risks related to foreign laws, taxes, economic conditions, labor supply and relations, political conditions and governmental policies. These risks may delay or reduce our realization of value from our international operations.
  • Most retail sales of the products that we manufacture are financed, either by our joint ventures with Rabobank or by a bank or other private lender. Our joint ventures with Rabobank, which are controlled by Rabobank and are dependent upon Rabobank for financing as well, finance approximately 50% of the retail sales of our tractors and combines in the markets where the joint ventures operate. Any difficulty by Rabobank to continue to provide that financing, or any business decision by Rabobank as the controlling member not to fund the business or particular aspects of it (for example, a particular country or region), would require the joint ventures to find other sources of financing (which may be difficult to obtain), or us to find another source of retail financing for our customers, or our customers would be required to utilize other retail financing providers. As a result of the recent economic downturn, financing for capital equipment purchases generally has become more difficult in certain regions and in some cases, can be expensive to obtain. To the extent that financing is not available or available only at unattractive prices, our sales would be negatively impacted.
  • Both AGCO and our finance joint ventures have substantial account receivables from dealers and end customers, and we would be adversely impacted if the collectability of these receivables was not consistent with historical experience; this collectability is dependent upon the financial strength of the farm industry, which in turn is dependent upon the general economy and commodity prices, as well as several of the other factors listed in this section.
  • We have experienced substantial and sustained volatility with respect to currency exchange rate and interest rate changes, including uncertainty associated with the Euro, which can adversely affect our reported results of operations and the competitiveness of our products.
  • Our success depends on the introduction of new products, particularly engines that comply with emission requirements, which requires substantial expenditures.
  • Our production levels and capacity constraints at our facilities, including those resulting from plant expansions and systems upgrades at our manufacturing facilities, could adversely affect our results.
  • Our expansion plans in emerging markets, including establishing a greater manufacturing and marketing presence and growing our use of component suppliers, could entail significant risks.
  • We depend on suppliers for components, parts and raw materials for our products, and any failure by our suppliers to provide products as needed, or by us to promptly address supplier issues, will adversely impact our ability to timely and efficiently manufacture and sell products. We also are subject to raw material price fluctuations, which can adversely affect our manufacturing costs.
  • We face significant competition, and if we are unable to compete successfully against other agricultural equipment manufacturers, we would lose customers and our net sales and profitability would decline.
  • We have a substantial amount of indebtedness, and, as result, we are subject to certain restrictive covenants and payment obligations that may adversely affect our ability to operate and expand our business.

Further information concerning these and other factors is included in AGCO’s filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including its Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2014 and subsequent Form 10-Qs. AGCO disclaims any obligation to update any forward-looking statements except as required by law.

During the three months ended September 30, 2014, the Company recorded a credit of approximately $24.1 million for the reversal of previously recorded long-term stock compensation expense.

2. RESTRUCTURING AND OTHER INFREQUENT EXPENSES

During the second half of 2014 and the first half of 2015, the Company announced and initiated several actions to rationalize employee headcount at various manufacturing facilities located in Europe, China, Brazil, Argentina and the United States, as well as various administrative offices located in Europe, Brazil, China and the United States. The aggregate headcount reduction of approximately 1,950 employees in 2014 and 2015 was initiated in order to reduce costs in response to softening global market demand and reduced production volumes. The Company recorded restructuring and other infrequent expenses of approximately $46.4 million and $14.6 million, respectively, during 2014 and 2015 associated with these rationalizations, primarily related to severance and other related costs. Approximately $19.0 million of severance and other related costs were paid during 2014. In addition, during the nine months ended September 30, 2015, the Company paid approximately $23.2 million of severance and other related costs. The remaining $15.9 million balance of severance and other related costs accrued as of September 30, 2015, inclusive of approximately $0.9 million of negative foreign currency translation impacts, will be paid primarily during 2015 and 2016.

3. INDEBTEDNESS

5. ACCOUNTS RECEIVABLE SALES AGREEMENTS

At September 30, 2015 and December 31, 2014, the Company had accounts receivable sales agreements that permit the sale, on an ongoing basis, of a majority of its wholesale receivables in North America and Europe to its 49% owned U.S., Canadian and European finance joint ventures. During the third quarter of 2015, the Company entered into an accounts receivable sales agreement that permits the sale, on an ongoing basis, of its wholesale receivables in Brazil to its Brazilian finance joint venture. As of September 30, 2015 and December 31, 2014, the cash received from receivables sold under the U.S., Canadian, European and Brazilian accounts receivable sales agreements was approximately $1.1 billion and $1.2 billion, respectively.

Losses on sales of receivables associated with the accounts receivable financing facilities discussed above, reflected within “Other expense, net” in the Company’s Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations, were approximately $4.0 million and $13.4 million during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015, respectively. Losses on sales of receivables associated with the accounts receivable financing facilities discussed above, reflected within “Other expense, net” in the Company’s Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations, were approximately $4.8 million and $19.0 million during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014, respectively.

The Company’s finance joint ventures in Brazil and Australia also provide wholesale financing to the Company’s dealers. As of September 30, 2015 and December 31, 2014, these finance joint ventures had approximately $19.7 million and $43.3 million, respectively, of outstanding accounts receivable associated with these arrangements. In addition, the Company sells certain trade receivables under factoring arrangements to other financial institutions around the world.

7. SEGMENT REPORTING

The Company’s four reportable segments distribute a full range of agricultural equipment and related replacement parts. The Company evaluates segment performance primarily based on income (loss) from operations. Sales for each segment are based on the location of the third-party customer. The Company’s selling, general and administrative expenses and engineering expenses are charged to each segment based on the region and division where the expenses are incurred. As a result, the components of income (loss) from operations for one segment may not be comparable to another segment. Segment results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014 are as follows:
