AMPHENOL CORPORATION

NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

(Unaudited)

(dollars in thousands, except per share data)

 

Note 1—Basis of Presentation and Principles of Consolidation

 

The condensed consolidated balance sheets as of March 31, 2011 and December 31, 2010 and the related condensed consolidated statements of income and cash flow for the three months ended March 31, 2011 and 2010 include the accounts of Amphenol Corporation and its subsidiaries (the “Company”).  All material intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation. The financial statements included herein are unaudited. In the opinion of management, all adjustments, consisting of normal recurring adjustments, necessary for a fair presentation in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America have been included.  The results of operations for the three months ended March 31, 2011 are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the full year.  These financial statements and the related notes should be read in conjunction with the financial statements and notes included in the Company’s 2010 Annual Report on Form 10-K.

 

Note 2—Reclassifications

 

In 2011, the Company changed the presentation of the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Cash Flow to present purchases and sales/maturities of short-term investments on a gross basis, which had been presented on a net basis for the three months ended March 31, 2010.  As a result, amounts in the accompanying Condensed Consolidated Statements of Cash Flow for the three months ended March 31, 2010 have been reclassified to conform to the current year presentation.

Note 4—Reportable Business Segments

 

The Company has two reportable business segments: (i) Interconnect Products and Assemblies and (ii) Cable Products. The Interconnect Products and Assemblies segment produces connectors and connector assemblies primarily for the communications, aerospace, industrial and automotive markets. The Cable Products segment produces coaxial and flat ribbon cable and related products primarily for the communications markets, including cable television. The accounting policies of the segments are the same as those for the Company as a whole. The Company evaluates the performance of its business segments on, among other things, profit or loss from operations before interest, income taxes and stock-based compensation expense as well as other costs such as headquarters expense allocations, amortization related to certain intangible assets and nonrecurring gains and losses.

 

The segment results for the three months ended March 31, 2011 and 2010 are as follows:

Basic earnings per share (“EPS”) is computed by dividing net income attributable to Amphenol Corporation by the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding. Diluted EPS is computed by dividing net income attributable to Amphenol Corporation by the weighted-average number of common shares and dilutive common shares issuable upon the exercise of outstanding stock options. A reconciliation of the basic weighted average common shares outstanding to diluted weighted average common shares outstanding for the three months ended March 31, 2011 and 2010 is as follows (dollars in thousands, except per share amounts):

Note 8—Commitments and Contingencies

 

The Company and its subsidiaries have been named as defendants in several legal actions in which various amounts are claimed arising from normal business activities.  Although the amount of any ultimate liability with respect to such matters cannot be precisely determined, in the opinion of management, such matters are not expected to have a material effect on the Company’s financial condition or results of operations.

 

Certain operations of the Company are subject to environmental laws and regulations which govern the discharge of pollutants into the air and water, as well as the handling and disposal of solid and hazardous wastes. The Company believes that its operations are currently in substantial compliance with applicable environmental laws and regulations and that the costs of continuing compliance will not have a material effect on the Company’s financial condition or results of operations.

 

Subsequent to the acquisition of Amphenol from Allied Signal Corporation (“Allied Signal”) in 1987 (Allied Signal merged with Honeywell International Inc. in December 1999 (“Honeywell”)), the Company and Honeywell were named jointly and severally liable as potentially responsible parties in connection with several environmental cleanup sites. The Company and Honeywell jointly consented to perform certain investigations and remediation and monitoring activities at two sites, the “Route 8” landfill and the “Richardson Hill Road” landfill, and they were jointly ordered to perform work at another site, the “Sidney” landfill. All of the costs incurred relating to these three sites are currently reimbursed by Honeywell based on an agreement (the “Honeywell Agreement”) entered into in connection with the acquisition in 1987. Management does not believe that the costs associated with resolution of these or any other environmental matters will have a material adverse effect on the Company’s consolidated financial condition or results of operations. The environmental investigation, remediation and monitoring activities identified by the Company, including those referred to above, are covered under the Honeywell Agreement.

Note 9—Stock-Based Compensation

 

In May 2009, the Company adopted the 2009 Stock Purchase and Option Plan (the “2009 Option Plan”) for Key Employees of the Company and its subsidiaries.  The Company currently also maintains the 2000 Stock Purchase and Option Plan (the “2000 Option Plan”).  The 2000 Option Plan and the 2009 Option Plan authorize the granting of additional stock options by a committee of the Company’s Board of Directors, although the Board of Directors has indicated that it does not intend to make any additional option grants under the 2000 Option Plan. As of March 31, 2011, there were 10,176,100 shares of common stock available for the granting of additional stock options under the 2009 Option Plan. Options granted under the 2000 Option Plan and the 2009 Option Plan vest ratably over a period of five years and are exercisable over a period of ten years from the date of grant.

 

In 2004, the Company adopted the 2004 Stock Option Plan for Directors of Amphenol Corporation (the “Directors Option Plan”). The Directors Option Plan is administered by the Company’s Board of Directors.  As of March 31, 2011, the maximum number of shares of common stock available for the granting of additional stock options under the Directors Option Plan was 140,000.  Options granted under the Directors Option Plan vest ratably over a period of three years and are exercisable over a period of ten years from the date of grant.

 

The grant-date fair value of each option grant under the 2000 Option Plan, the 2009 Option Plan and the Directors Option Plan is estimated using the Black-Scholes option pricing model. The fair value is then amortized on a straight-line basis over the requisite service period of the awards, which is generally the vesting period. Use of a valuation model requires management to make certain assumptions with respect to selected model inputs. Expected share price volatility was calculated based on the historical volatility of the stock of the Company and implied volatility derived from related exchange traded options. The average expected life was based on the contractual term of the option and expected employee exercise and historical post-vesting employment termination experience. The risk-free interest rate is based on U.S. Treasury zero-coupon issues with a remaining term equal to the expected life assumed at the date of grant. The expected annual dividend per share is based on the Company’s dividend rate.

 

Stock-based compensation expense includes the estimated effects of forfeitures, which are adjusted over the requisite service period to the extent actual forfeitures differ or are expected to differ from such estimates.  Changes in estimated forfeitures are recognized in the period of change and impact the amount of expense to be recognized in future periods.  For the three months ended March 31, 2011, the Company’s income before income taxes and net income were reduced for stock-based compensation expense by $6,320 and $4,582, respectively.  For the three months ended March 31, 2010, the Company’s income before income taxes and net income were reduced for stock-based compensation expense by $5,443 and $4,022, respectively. The expense incurred for stock-based compensation is included in selling, general and administrative expense in the accompanying Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income.

Note 10—Shareholders’ Equity

 

In January 2011, the Company announced that its Board of Directors authorized a stock repurchase program under which the Company may repurchase up to 20,000,000 shares of its common stock during the three year period ending January 31, 2014 (the “Program”). During the three months ended March 31, 2011, the Company repurchased approximately 3,400,000 shares of its common stock for $188,503.  Through April 30, 2011, the Company has repurchased a total of approximately 4,300,000 shares of its common stock for $238,817. At April 30, 2011, approximately 15,700,000 shares of common stock may be repurchased under the Program.

 

The Company pays a quarterly dividend on its common stock of $.015 per share.  For the three months ended March 31, 2011, the Company paid and declared dividends in the amount of $2,633 and $2,642, respectively.  For the three months ended March 31, 2010, the Company paid and declared dividends in the amount of $2,595 and $2,600, respectively.

 

Note 11—Benefit Plans and Other Postretirement Benefits

 

The Company and certain of its domestic subsidiaries have two defined benefit pension plans (the “U.S. Plans”), which cover its U.S. employees and which represent the majority of the plan assets and benefit obligations of the aggregate defined benefit plans of the Company. The U.S. Plans’ benefits are generally based on years of service and compensation and are generally noncontributory.  Certain U.S. employees not covered by the U.S. Plans are covered by defined contribution plans.  Certain foreign subsidiaries have defined benefit plans covering their employees (the “International Plans”). The following is a summary, based on the most recent actuarial valuations of the Company’s net cost for pension benefits, of both the U.S. Plans and the International Plans and other postretirement benefits for the three months ended March 31, 2011 and 2010.

For the three months ended March 31, 2011, the Company made cash contributions to the Plans of $15,000 and estimates that, based on current actuarial calculations, it will make a cash contribution to the Plans in 2011 of approximately $23,000, the majority of which is to the U.S. Plans.  Cash contributions in subsequent years will depend on a number of factors, including the investment performance of the Plan assets.

 

The Company offers various defined contribution plans for U.S. and foreign employees. Participation in these plans is based on certain eligibility requirements. The Company matches the majority of employee contributions to U.S. defined contribution plans with cash contributions up to a maximum of 5% of eligible compensation.  During the three months ended March 31, 2011 and 2010, the total matching contributions to these U.S. defined contribution plans were approximately $688 and $500, respectively.

 

Note 12Goodwill and Other Intangible Assets

 

As of March 31, 2011, the Company has goodwill totaling $1,536,506 of which $1,462,957 is related to the Interconnect Products and Assemblies segment with the remainder related to the Cable Products segment.  For the three months ended March 31, 2011, goodwill increased by $3,207, primarily as a result of currency translation.

 

The Company’s intangible assets are subject to amortization except for goodwill. A summary of the Company’s amortizable intangible assets as of March 31, 2011 and December 31, 2010 is as follows:

Intangible assets are included in other long-term assets in the accompanying Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets.  The aggregated amortization expense for the three months ended March 31, 2011 and 2010 was approximately $3,300 and $3,100, respectively.  As of March 31, 2011, amortization expense estimated for each of the next five fiscal years is approximately $14,100 in each of 2011 and 2012, $10,800 in 2013, $8,900 in 2014, and $8,400 in 2015.

 

Note 13—Debt

 

Revolving Credit Facility

 

In August 2010, the Company refinanced its senior credit facility. The $1,000,000 unsecured revolving credit facility (the “Revolving Credit Facility”) matures in August 2014. The net proceeds from the refinancing were used to repay $247,000 of borrowings outstanding under the Company’s previous senior unsecured credit facility.  At March 31, 2011, borrowings and availability under the Revolving Credit Facility were $250,200 and $749,800, respectively.  At December 31, 2010, borrowings and availability under the Revolving Credit Facility were $103,600 and $896,400, respectively.  As of March 31, 2011, the Company pays interest on borrowings under the Revolving Credit Facility at a spread over LIBOR. The Company also pays certain annual agency and commitment fees. The Revolving Credit Facility requires that the Company satisfy certain financial covenants.  At March 31, 2011, the Company was in compliance with the financial covenants under the Revolving Credit Facility.  The Company paid fees and expenses of approximately $6,900 in conjunction with the Revolving Credit Facility, which are deferred and amortized into interest expense through its maturity.

 

Senior Notes

 

In November 2009, the Company issued $600,000 principal amount of unsecured 4.75% Senior Notes due November 2014 (the “Senior Notes”) at 99.813% of their face value.  Net proceeds from the sale of the Senior Notes were used to repay borrowings under the Company’s senior credit facility.  Interest on the Senior Notes is payable semi-annually on May 15 and November 15 of each year to the holders of record as of the immediately preceding May 1 and November 1. The Company may, at its option, redeem some or all of the Senior Notes at any time by paying a make-whole premium, plus accrued and unpaid interest, if any, to the date of repurchase.  The Senior Notes are unsecured and rank equally in right of payment with the Company’s other unsecured senior indebtedness. The fair value of the Senior Notes at March 31, 2011 was approximately $639,000 based on recent bid prices.

Receivables Securitization Facility

 

A subsidiary of the Company has entered into the Receivables Securitization Facility with a financial institution whereby the subsidiary can sell an undivided interest of up to $100,000 in a designated pool of qualified accounts receivable (the “Receivables Securitization Facility”). The Company services, administers and collects the receivables on behalf of the purchaser. The Receivables Securitization Facility includes certain covenants and provides for various events of termination and expires in May 2013.  In accordance with previous accounting guidance, the receivables sold under the Receivables Securitization Facility were accounted for off-balance sheet as sales of receivables.  The Company adopted Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) No. 2009-16, Accounting for Transfers of Financial Assets (“ASU 2009-16”) on January 1, 2010. As a result, the Company no longer accounts for the value of the outstanding undivided interest held by investors under the Receivables Securitization Facility as a sale. In addition, transfers of receivables occurring on or after January 1, 2010 are reflected as debt issued in the Company’s Condensed Consolidated Statements of Cash Flow, and the value of the outstanding undivided interest held by investors at December 31, 2010 and March 31, 2011 is accounted for as a secured borrowing and is included in the Company’s Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets as long-term debt.  At March 31, 2011, borrowings under the Receivables Securitization Facility were $93,800.   Additionally, in accordance with ASU 2009-16, fees incurred in connection with the Receivables Securitization Facility are included in interest expense.

 

The carrying value of borrowings under the Company’s Revolving Credit Facility and Receivables Securitization Facility approximated their fair value at March 31, 2011.

 

Note 14—Contingent Consideration

 

In connection with an acquisition made during 2010, the Company was required to make contingent consideration payments to the sellers in April 2011 based on certain 2010 profitability levels of the acquired company, and the Company may be required to make contingent consideration payments to the sellers in 2012, based on certain 2011 profitability levels of the acquired company, up to a maximum undiscounted amount of $59,000. In April 2011, the Company made the first contingent consideration payment in the amount of $40,000.  The second contingent consideration payment of $19,000, which is based on certain 2011 profitability levels of the acquired company, is due in April 2012.

 

The Company determined the fair value of the liability for these contingent consideration payments based on a probability-weighted approach.  The probability-weighted approach resulted in a scenario that the Company believes is most likely and will result in the maximum $59,000 contingent consideration being paid in accordance with the purchase agreement entered into in connection with the acquisition. The fair value of the first contingent consideration payment paid in April 2011 is included in accrued acquisition-related obligations on the accompanying Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets at March 31, 2011 and December 31, 2010 in the amount of $40,000 and $39,615, respectively. The fair value of the second contingent consideration payment due in April 2012 is included in other long-term liabilities on the accompanying Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets at March 31, 2011 and December 31, 2010 in the amount of $18,268 and $18,092, respectively.

 

Note 15—Fair Value Measurements

 

The Company follows the framework within the Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures topic of the FASB Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”), which requires fair value to be determined based on the exchange price that would be received for an asset or paid to transfer a liability (an exit price) in the principal or most advantageous market for the asset or liability in an orderly transaction between market participants. These standards establish market or observable inputs as the preferred source of values. Assumptions based on hypothetical transactions are used in the absence of market inputs. The Company does not have any non-financial instruments accounted for at fair value on a recurring basis.

 

The valuation techniques required are based upon observable and unobservable inputs. Observable inputs reflect market data obtained from independent sources, while unobservable inputs reflect the Company’s market assumptions. These two types of inputs create the following fair value hierarchy:

 

Level 1     Quoted prices for identical instruments in active markets.

 

12


 


Table of Contents

 

Level 2                Quoted prices for similar instruments in active markets; quoted prices for identical or similar instruments in markets that are not active; and model-derived valuations whose inputs are observable or whose significant value drivers are observable.

 

Level 3     Significant inputs to the valuation model are unobservable.

 

The Company believes that the assets or liabilities subject to such standards with fair value disclosure requirements are short-term investments, which are independently valued using market observable Level 1 inputs. The Company’s Level 1 short-term investments consist primarily of certificates of deposit with original maturities of twelve months or less. As of March 31, 2011 and December 31, 2010, the fair values of short-term investments were $98,422 and $98,341, respectively.  The impact of the credit risk related to these financial assets is immaterial.

 

The Company does not have any other significant financial or non-financial assets and liabilities that are measured at fair value on a non-recurring basis.

 

Note 16—Income Taxes

 

The provision for income taxes for the first quarter of 2011 and 2010 was at an effective rate of 27.5% and 26.1%, respectively. The lower rate in 2010 is primarily attributed to a $1,900 reduction in tax liabilities for unrecognized tax benefits due to the expiration of various statutes and the completion of certain audits of the Company’s prior tax returns.

 

The Company is present in over fifty taxable jurisdictions, and at any point in time has numerous audits underway at various stages of completion. With few exceptions, the Company is subject to income tax examinations by tax authorities for the years 2007 and after.  The Company is generally not able to precisely estimate the ultimate settlement amounts or timing until the close of an audit.  The Company evaluates its tax positions and establishes liabilities for uncertain tax positions that may be challenged by local authorities and may not be fully sustained, despite the Company’s belief that the underlying tax positions are fully supportable. As of March 31, 2011, the amount of the liability for unrecognized tax benefits, which if recognized would impact the effective tax rate, was approximately $24,363, the majority of which is included in other long-term liabilities in the accompanying Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets.  Unrecognized tax benefits are reviewed on an ongoing basis and are adjusted for changing facts and circumstances, including progress of tax audits and closing of statute of limitations. Based on information currently available, management anticipates that over the next twelve month period, audit activity could be completed and statutes of limitations may close relating to existing unrecognized tax benefits of approximately $5,000.

MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS
OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

 

(dollars in millions, unless otherwise noted, except per share data)

 

Results of Operations

 

Quarter ended March 31, 2011 compared to the quarter ended March 31, 2010

 

Net sales were $940.6 in the first quarter of 2011 compared to $771.0 for the same period in 2010, an increase of 22% in U.S. dollars and 21% in local currencies. Sales of interconnect products and assemblies (approximately 93% of sales) increased 25% in U.S. dollars and 24% in local currencies in the first quarter of 2011 compared to the same period in 2010 as a result of a broad strengthening from a product, customer and geographic perspective ($877.5 in 2011 versus $703.6 in 2010). Sales increased in most of the Company’s major end markets including wireless devices, industrial, automotive, military/aerospace and wireless infrastructure.  Sales of cable products (approximately 7% of sales) decreased 6% in U.S dollars and 8% in local currencies in the first quarter of 2011 compared to the same period in 2010 ($63.1 in 2011 versus $67.4 in 2010). This decrease is primarily due to lower spending in North American broadband markets.

 

Geographically, sales in the United States in the first quarter of 2011 increased approximately 19%, compared to the same period in 2010 ($323.5 in 2011 versus $272.9 in 2010).  International sales for the first quarter of 2011 increased approximately 24% in U.S. dollars, and 23% in local currencies, compared to the same periods in 2010 ($617.1 in 2011 versus $498.1 in 2010). The comparatively weaker U.S. dollar for the first quarter of 2011 had the effect of increasing sales by approximately $6.4 compared to foreign currency translation rates for the same period in 2010.

 

The gross profit margin as a percentage of net sales was approximately 32.3% for both the first quarter of 2011 and 2010.  The operating margins in the Interconnect Products and Assemblies segment increased approximately 1.0% in the first quarter of 2011, compared to the same period in 2010, primarily as a result of higher volume levels and proactive and aggressive management of all elements of costs. The operating margins in the Cable Products segment decreased by approximately 3.1% in the first quarter of 2011 compared to the same period in 2010, primarily as a result of higher relative material costs and lower volume.

 

Selling, general and administrative expenses increased to $118.0 or 12.5% of net sales for the first quarter of 2011, compared to $104.1 or 13.5% of net sales for the same period in 2010. The increase in expense in the first quarter of 2011 is primarily attributable to increases in selling expense resulting from higher sales volume and increased research and development spending relating to new product development. Selling, general and administrative expenses include stock-based compensation expense of $6.3 for the first quarter of 2011, compared to $5.4 for the same period in 2010.

 

Interest expense for both the first quarter of 2011 and 2010 was $10.0, reflecting similar average debt levels and interest rates.

 

Other income, net, increased to $1.7 for the first quarter of 2011, compared to $0.5 for the same period in 2010, primarily related to higher interest income on higher levels of cash and short-term investments.

 

The provision for income taxes for the first quarter of 2011 and 2010 was at an effective rate of 27.5% and 26.1%, respectively. The lower rate in 2010 is primarily attributed to a $1.9 reduction in tax liabilities for unrecognized tax benefits due to the expiration of various statutes and the completion of certain audits of the Company’s prior tax returns.

 

The Company is present in over fifty taxable jurisdictions, and at any point in time has numerous audits underway at various stages of completion. With few exceptions, the Company is subject to income tax examinations by tax authorities for the years 2007 and after.  The Company is generally not able to precisely estimate the ultimate settlement amounts or timing until the close of an audit.  The Company evaluates its tax positions and establishes liabilities for uncertain tax positions that may be challenged by local authorities and may not be fully sustained, despite the Company’s belief that the underlying tax positions are fully supportable. As of March 31, 2011, the amount of the liability for unrecognized tax benefits, which if recognized would impact the effective tax rate, was approximately $24.4, the majority of which is included in other long-term liabilities in the accompanying Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets.  Unrecognized tax benefits are reviewed on an ongoing basis and are adjusted for changing facts and circumstances, including progress of tax audits and closing of statute of limitations. Based on information currently available, management anticipates that over the next twelve month period, audit activity could be completed and statutes of limitations may close relating to existing unrecognized tax benefits of approximately $5.0.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

Cash flow provided by operating activities was $107.7 in the first three months of 2011 compared to $31.8 in the same 2010 period.  Cash flow provided by operating activities for the 2010 period includes the effect of adoption of the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) No. 2009-16, Accounting for Transfers of Financial Assets (“ASU 2009-16”), which was effective January 1, 2010 and resulted in a decrease to cash provided by operating activities of $82.0 in 2010.  The decrease in cash flow provided by operating activities for the first three months of 2011 compared to the same 2010 period (excluding the effect of adoption of ASU 2009-16 in 2010) is primarily due to an increase in components of working capital and a $15.0 contribution made to the Company’s U.S. defined benefit pension plan during the first quarter of 2011, partially offset by an increase in net income and an increase in non-cash expenses including depreciation and amortization and stock-based compensation. The components of working capital as presented on the accompanying Condensed Consolidated Statements of Cash Flow increased $44.1 in the first three months of 2011 due primarily to an increase of $46.0 in inventory and increases of $16.9 and $4.0 in accounts receivable and other current assets, respectively, which were partially offset by an increase in accounts payable of $23.8.  The components of working capital increased $14.7 in the first three months of 2010 due primarily to an increase of $43.9 in accounts receivable and increases of $17.2 and $3.2 in inventory and other current assets, respectively, which were partially offset by increases in accounts payable and accrued liabilities of $30.3 and $19.3, respectively.

 

The following describes the significant changes in the amounts as presented on the accompanying Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets at March 31, 2011. Accounts receivable increased $25.7 to $744.2 reflecting the heavy weighting of sales in March 2011 compared to December 2010 and translation resulting from the comparatively weaker U.S. dollar at March 31, 2011 compared to December 31, 2010 (“Translation”). Days sales outstanding was approximately 71 days at March 31, 2011 compared to 68 days at December 31, 2010.  Inventories increased $53.8 to $603.0, reflecting an increase in raw materials inventory to support sequential sales growth and the impact of Translation.  Inventory days increased from 77 at December 31, 2010 to 85 at March 31, 2011. Land and depreciable assets, net, increased $4.5 to $371.5 primarily due to capital expenditures of $23.2 and Translation offset by depreciation of $23.9. Accounts payable increased $29.3 to $414.3, primarily as a result of an increase in purchasing activity during the period and the impact of Translation. Total accrued expenses decreased $1.9 to $267.8 primarily due to the payment of incentive compensation during the quarter, partially offset by an increase in accrued income taxes.  Accrued pension and post-employment benefit obligations decreased $6.7 to $169.9, primarily due to a contribution of $15.0 to the Company’s U.S. defined benefit pension plan, partially offset by pension expense and Translation.

 

For the first three months of 2011, cash flow provided by operating activities of $107.7, net borrowings of $149.6 and proceeds from the exercise of stock options including tax benefits from stock-based payment arrangements of $16.5 were used to fund purchases of treasury stock of $188.5, capital expenditures of $23.2 and dividend payments of $2.6, which resulted in an increase in cash and cash equivalents of $67.1. For the first three months of 2010, cash flow provided by operating activities of $31.8, net borrowings of $48.6 and proceeds from the exercise of stock options including tax benefits from stock-based payment arrangements of $3.8 were used to fund capital expenditures and acquisition-related payments of $18.4 and $3.0, respectively, to purchase short-term investments of $8.4 and to fund dividend payments and payments to shareholders of noncontrolling interests of $2.6 and $1.0, respectively, which resulted in an increase in cash and cash equivalents of $47.1.

 

In August 2010, the Company refinanced its senior credit facility. The $1,000.0 unsecured revolving credit facility (the “Revolving Credit Facility”) matures in August 2014. The net proceeds from the refinancing were used to repay $247.0 of borrowings outstanding under the Company’s previous senior unsecured credit facility.  At March 31, 2011, borrowings and availability under the Revolving Credit Facility were $250.2 and $749.8, respectively. At December 31, 2010, borrowings and availability under the Revolving Credit Facility were $103.6 and $896.4, respectively. As of March 31, 2011, the Company pays interest on borrowings under the Revolving Credit Facility at a spread over LIBOR.  The Company also pays certain annual agency and commitment fees. The Revolving Credit Facility requires that the Company satisfy certain financial covenants.  At March 31, 2011, the Company was in compliance with the financial covenants under the Revolving Credit Facility.

 

In November 2009, the Company issued $600.0 principal amount of unsecured 4.75% Senior Notes due November 2014 (the “Senior Notes”) at 99.813% of their face value.  Net proceeds from the sale of the Senior Notes were used to repay borrowings under the Company’s senior credit facility.  Interest on the Senior Notes is payable semi-annually on May 15 and November 15 of each year to the holders of record as of the immediately preceding May 1 and November 1. The Company may, at its option, redeem some or all of the Senior Notes at any time by paying a make-whole premium, plus accrued and unpaid interest, if any, to the date of repurchase.  The Senior Notes are unsecured and rank equally in right of payment with the Company’s other unsecured senior indebtedness. The fair value of the Senior Notes at March 31, 2011 was approximately $639.0 based on recent bid prices.

 

A subsidiary of the Company has entered into the Receivables Securitization Facility with a financial institution whereby the subsidiary can sell an undivided interest of up to $100.0 in a designated pool of qualified accounts receivable (the “Receivables Securitization Facility”). The Company services, administers and collects the receivables on behalf of the purchaser. The Receivables Securitization Facility includes certain covenants and provides for various events of termination and expires in May 2013.  In

accordance with previous accounting guidance, the receivables sold under the Receivables Securitization Facility were accounted for off-balance sheet as sales of receivables. The Company adopted ASU 2009-16 on January 1, 2010. As a result, the Company no longer accounts for the value of the outstanding undivided interest held by investors under the Receivables Securitization Facility as a sale. In addition, transfers of receivables occurring on or after January 1, 2010 are reflected as debt issued in the Company’s Condensed Consolidated Statements of Cash Flow, and the value of the outstanding undivided interest held by investors at December 31, 2010 is accounted for as a secured borrowing and is included in the Company’s Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets as long-term debt.  At March 31, 2011, borrowings under the Receivables Securitization Facility were $93.8. Additionally, in accordance with ASU 2009-16, fees incurred in connection with the Receivables Securitization Facility, which are included in other expense, net for prior periods, are included in interest expense.

 

The carrying value of borrowings under the Revolving Credit Facility and Receivables Securitization Facility approximated their fair value at March 31, 2011.

 

The Company’s primary ongoing cash requirements will be for operating and capital expenditures, product development activities, repurchase of its common stock, funding of pension obligations, dividends and debt service.  The Company may also use cash to fund all or part of the cost of acquisitions.  The Company pays a quarterly dividend on its common stock of $.015 per share. For the three months ended March 31, 2011, the Company paid and declared dividends in the amount of $2.6. The Company’s debt service requirements consist primarily of principal and interest on the Senior Notes, the Revolving Credit Facility and the Receivables Securitization Facility.

 

The Company’s primary sources of liquidity are internally generated cash flow, the Revolving Credit Facility, the Receivables Securitization Facility and cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments.  The Company expects that ongoing cash requirements will be funded from these sources; however, the Company’s sources of liquidity could be adversely affected by, among other things, a decrease in demand for the Company’s products, a deterioration in certain of the Company’s financial ratios or a deterioration in the quality of the Company’s accounts receivables.  However, management believes that the Company’s cash, cash equivalents and short-term investment position, ability to generate strong cash flow from operations, availability under its Revolving Credit Facility and its Receivables Securitization Facility will allow it to meet its obligations for the next twelve months.

 

In January 2011, the Company announced that its Board of Directors authorized a stock repurchase program under which the Company may repurchase up to 20 million shares of its common stock during the three year period ending January 31, 2014 (the “Program”). During the three months ended March 31, 2011, the Company repurchased approximately 3.4 million shares of its common stock for approximately $188.5. Through April 30, 2011, the Company has repurchased a total of approximately 4.3 million shares of its common stock for $238.8. At April 30, 2011, approximately 15.7 million shares of common stock may be repurchased under the Program.

 

For the three months ended March 31, 2011, the Company made cash contributions to its two defined benefit pension plans (the “U.S. Plans”) of $15.0 and estimates that, based on current actuarial calculations, it will make a cash contribution to the Plans in 2011 of approximately $23.0, the majority of which is to the U.S. Plans.  Cash contributions in subsequent years will depend on a number of factors, including the investment performance of the Plan assets.

 

Environmental Matters

 

Subsequent to the acquisition of Amphenol from Allied Signal Corporation (“Allied Signal”) in 1987 (Allied Signal merged with Honeywell International Inc. in December 1999 (“Honeywell”)), the Company and Honeywell were named jointly and severally liable as potentially responsible parties in connection with several environmental cleanup sites. The Company and Honeywell jointly consented to perform certain investigations and remediation and monitoring activities at two sites, the “Route 8” landfill and the “Richardson Hill Road” landfill, and they were jointly ordered to perform work at another site, the “Sidney” landfill. All of the costs incurred relating to these three sites are currently reimbursed by Honeywell based on an agreement (the “Honeywell Agreement”) entered into in connection with the acquisition in 1987. Management does not believe that the costs associated with resolution of these or any other environmental matters will have a material adverse effect on the Company’s consolidated financial condition or results of operations. The environmental investigation, remediation and monitoring activities identified by the Company, including those referred to above, are covered under the Honeywell Agreement.

Safe Harbor Statement

 

Statements in this report that are not historical are “forward-looking” statements within the meaning of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 and other related federal securities laws, and should be considered subject to the many uncertainties and risks that exist in the Company’s operations and business environment. These uncertainties and risks, which include, among other things, economic and currency conditions, market demand and pricing and competitive and cost factors, are set forth in Part I, Item 1A of the Company’s 2010 Annual Report on Form 10-K. Actual results could differ materially from those currently anticipated. The Company does not undertake any obligations to update such forward-looking statements.

 

Item 3.    Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk

 

The Company, in the normal course of doing business, is exposed to the risks associated with foreign currency exchange rates and changes in interest rates.  There has been no material change in the Company’s assessment of its sensitivity to foreign currency exchange rate risk since its presentation set forth in Part II, Item 7A “Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk” in its 2010 Annual Report on Form 10-K.  As of March 31, 2011, the Company’s average LIBOR rate was 0.25%.  A 10% change in the LIBOR interest rate at March 31, 2011 would have no material effect on interest expense. The Company does not expect changes in interest rates to have a material effect on income or cash flows in 2011, although there can be no assurances that interest rates will not significantly change.

 

Item 4.    Controls and Procedures

 

Under the supervision and with the participation of the Company’s management, including the Company’s Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, the Company has evaluated the effectiveness of the design and operation of its disclosure controls and procedures as of the period covered by this report. Based on their evaluation, the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer have concluded that these disclosure controls and procedures are effective to ensure that information required to be disclosed by the Company in reports that it files or submits under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in Securities and Exchange Commission rules and forms and such information is accumulated and communicated to management, including the Company’s principal executive and financial officers, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure. There has been no change in the Company’s internal controls over financial reporting during its most recent fiscal quarter that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, its internal control over financial reporting.

 

PART II - OTHER INFORMATION

 

Item 1.            Legal Proceedings

 

The Company and its subsidiaries have been named as defendants in several legal actions in which various amounts are claimed arising from normal business activities. Although the amount of any ultimate liability with respect to such matters cannot be precisely determined, in the opinion of management, such matters are not expected to have a material adverse effect on the Company’s financial condition or results of operations.

 

Item 1A.         Risk Factors

 

There have been no material changes to the Company’s risk factors as disclosed in Part I, Item 1A of the Company’s 2010 Annual Report on Form 10-K.
