1. Segment Information
The Company has four reportable segments based on its geographic locations: Europe, North America, Latin America and Asia Pacific. In connection with the Company’s acquisition (the “Vitro Acquisition”) of the food and beverage glass container business of Vitro S.A.B. de C.V. and its subsidiaries as conducted in the United States, Mexico and Bolivia (the “Vitro Business”) on September 1, 2015 (see Note 15), the Company has renamed the former South America segment to the Latin America segment. This change in segment name was made to reflect the addition of the Mexican and Bolivian operations from the Vitro Acquisition into the former South America segment. The acquired Vitro food and beverage glass container distribution business located in the United States is included in the North American operating segment. These four segments are aligned with the Company’s internal approach to managing, reporting, and evaluating performance of its global glass operations. Certain assets and activities not directly related to one of the regions or to glass manufacturing are reported with Retained corporate costs and other. These include licensing, equipment manufacturing, global engineering, and certain equity investments. Retained corporate costs and other also includes certain headquarters administrative and facilities costs and certain incentive compensation and other benefit plan costs that are global in nature and are not allocable to the reportable segments.
The Company’s measure of profit for its reportable segments is segment operating profit, which consists of consolidated earnings from continuing operations before interest income, interest expense, and provision for income taxes and excludes amounts related to certain items that management considers not representative of ongoing operations as well as certain retained corporate costs. The Company’s management uses segment operating profit, in combination with net sales and selected cash flow information, to evaluate performance and to allocate resources. Segment operating profit for reportable segments includes an allocation of some corporate expenses based on both a percentage of sales and direct billings based on the costs of specific services provided.
Financial information for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014 regarding the Company’s reportable segments is as follows:
Financial information regarding the Company’s total assets is as follows:
Receivables consist of the following:
In conjunction with the Vitro Acquisition, the Company remitted approximately $147 million related to value added taxes owed as a result of certain internal restructuring transactions undertaken by Vitro, S.A.B. de C.V. related to the closing of the Vitro Acquisition. This amount is included in “Other receivables” above and is expected to be refunded to the Company in approximately twelve months.
The Company uses various factoring programs to sell certain receivables to financial institutions as part of managing its cash flows. The amount of receivables sold by the Company was $336 million, $276 million, and $209 million at September 30, 2015, December 31, 2014, and September 30, 2014, respectively. Any continuing involvement with the sold receivables is immaterial.
Major classes of inventory are as follows:
4. Derivative Instruments
The Company has certain derivative assets and liabilities which consist of natural gas forwards and foreign exchange option and forward contracts. The Company uses an income approach to valuing these contracts. Natural gas forward rates and foreign exchange rates are the significant inputs into the valuation models. These inputs are observable in active markets over the terms of the instruments the Company holds, and accordingly, the Company classifies its derivative assets and liabilities as Level 2 in the hierarchy. The Company also evaluates counterparty risk in determining fair values.
Commodity Forward Contracts Designated as Cash Flow Hedges
In North America, the Company enters into commodity forward contracts related to forecasted natural gas requirements, the objectives of which are to limit the effects of fluctuations in the future market price paid for natural gas and the related volatility in cash flows. The Company continually evaluates the natural gas market and related price risk and periodically enters into commodity forward contracts in order to hedge a portion of its usage requirements. The majority of the sales volume in North America is tied to customer contracts that contain provisions that pass the price of natural gas to the customer. In certain of these contracts, the customer has the option of fixing the natural gas price component for a specified period of time. At September 30, 2015 and 2014, the Company had entered into commodity forward contracts covering approximately 6,300,000 MM BTUs and 1,800,000 MM BTUs, respectively, primarily related to customer requests to lock the price of natural gas.
The Company accounts for the above forward contracts as cash flow hedges at September 30, 2015 and recognizes them on the balance sheet at fair value. The effective portion of changes in the fair value of a derivative that is designated as, and meets the required criteria for, a cash flow hedge is recorded in the Accumulated Other Comprehensive Income component of share owners’ equity (“OCI”) and reclassified into earnings in the same period or periods during which the underlying hedged item affects earnings. Unrecognized gains of $2 million and $1 million at September 30, 2015 and 2014, respectively, related to the commodity forward contracts was included in Accumulated OCI, and will be reclassified into earnings over the next twelve to twenty-four months. Any material portion of the change in the fair value of a derivative designated as a cash flow hedge that is deemed to be ineffective is recognized in current earnings. The ineffectiveness related to these natural gas hedges for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014 was not material.
The effect of the commodity forward contracts on the results of operations for the three months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014 is as follows:
The effect of the commodity forward contracts on the results of operations for the nine months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014 is as follows:
Forward Exchange Derivative Contracts not Designated as Hedging Instruments
The Company may enter into short-term forward exchange or option agreements to purchase foreign currencies at set rates in the future. These agreements are used to limit exposure to fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates for significant planned purchases of fixed assets or commodities that are denominated in currencies other than the subsidiaries’ functional currency. Subsidiaries may also use forward exchange agreements to offset the foreign currency risk for receivables and payables, including intercompany receivables, payables, and loans, not denominated in, or indexed to, their functional currencies. The Company records these short-term forward exchange agreements on the balance sheet at fair value and changes in the fair value are recognized in current earnings.
At September 30, 2015 and 2014, various subsidiaries of the Company had outstanding forward exchange and option agreements denominated in various currencies covering the equivalent of approximately $600 million and $520 million, respectively, related primarily to intercompany transactions and loans.
The effect of the forward exchange derivative contracts on the results of operations for the three months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014 is as follows:
The effect of the forward exchange derivative contracts on the results of operations for the nine months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014 is as follows:
Balance Sheet Classification
The Company records the fair values of derivative financial instruments on the balance sheet as follows: (a) receivables if the instrument has a positive fair value and maturity within one year, (b) other assets if the instrument has a positive fair value and maturity after one year, (c) other liabilities (current) if the instrument has a negative fair value and maturity within one year, and (d) other long-term liabilities if the instrument has a negative fair value and maturity after one year. The following table shows the amount and classification (as noted above) of the Company’s derivatives:
