Eagle Materials Inc. and Subsidiaries
N
otes to Unaudited Consolidated Financial Statements

 

(A) BASIS OF PRESENTATION

The accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements as of and for the three- and nine-month periods ended December 31, 2018 include the accounts of Eagle Materials Inc. and its majority-owned subsidiaries (collectively, the Company, us, or we) and have been prepared by the Company, without audit, pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission. These unaudited consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements and the notes thereto included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on May 23, 2018.

Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles have been condensed or omitted pursuant to such rules and regulations, although we believe that the disclosures are adequate to make the information presented not misleading. In our opinion, all adjustments (consisting solely of normal recurring adjustments) necessary to present fairly the information in the following unaudited consolidated financial statements of the Company have been included. The results of operations for interim periods are not necessarily indicative of the results for the full year.

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, disclosures of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements, and the reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

RECENTLY ADOPTED

In May 2014, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) issued Accounting Standards Update (ASU) ASU 2014-09, “Revenue from Contracts with Customers.” ASU 2014-09 supersedes the revenue recognition requirements in “Revenue Recognition (Topic 605),” and requires entities to recognize revenue in a way that depicts the transfer of promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the entity expects to be entitled to in exchange for those goods or services. We adopted the new standard on April 1, 2018 using the modified retrospective approach. The adoption of this standard did not affect our consolidated financial statements. We have included expanded disclosure of our revenue recognition policies in Footnote (C) to the Unaudited Consolidated Financial Statements.

In March 2017, the FASB issued ASU 2017-07, “Improving the Presentation of Net Periodic Pension Cost and Net Periodic Postretirement Benefit Cost,” which revises the accounting for periodic pension and postretirement expense. This ASU requires net periodic benefit cost, with the exception of service cost, to be presented retrospectively as nonoperating expense. Service cost will remain a component of Cost of Goods Sold and represent the only cost of pension and postretirement expense eligible for capitalization. We adopted the standard on April 1, 2018 using the retrospective method for presentation of service cost and other components in the income statement. We prospectively adopted the requirement to limit the capitalization of benefit cost to the service cost component. The impact of adopting this standard was not material to our financial statements.

In January 2017, the FASB issued ASU 2017-04, “Simplifying the Test for Goodwill Impairment,” which eliminates the second step of the goodwill impairment test. Under the new standard, an entity should recognize an impairment charge for the amount by which the carrying value of the reporting unit exceeds the reporting unit’s fair value. We adopted this standard effective April 1, 2018, and it will be effective for our annual goodwill impairment tests in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019.

PENDING ADOPTION

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-02, “Leases,” which supersedes existing lease guidance to require lessees to recognize assets and liabilities on the balance sheet for the rights and obligations created by long‒term leases and to disclose additional quantitative and qualitative information about leasing arrangements. The standard will be effective for us in the first quarter of fiscal 2020, and we will adopt the standard using the modified retrospective approach. We are currently assessing the impact of the ASU on our consolidated financial statements and disclosures, as well as our internal lease accounting processes.

In January 2018, the FASB issued ASU 2018-01, “Land Easement Practical Expedient for Transition to Topic 842.” This ASU permits the Company to elect not to evaluate under the new lease guidance land easements that existed or expired before the adoption of the ASU 2016-02 and that were not previously accounted for as leases. We will adopt ASU 2018-01 concurrently with the adoption of ASU 2016-02 in the first quarter of fiscal 2020.

 

(B) CASH FLOW INFORMATION—SUPPLEMENTAL  

Cash payments made for interest were $17.8 million and $19.8 million for the nine months ended December 31, 2018 and 2017, respectively. Net payments made for federal and state income taxes during the nine months ended December 31, 2018 and 2017 were $35.2 million and $68.8 million, respectively.

(C) REVENUE

On April 1, 2018, we adopted the new accounting standard ASU 2014-09 (Topic 606), “Revenue from Contracts with Customers,” and all the related amendments to contracts using the modified retrospective method.  The adoption of ASU 2014-09 had no impact on our financial statements at the time of the adoption.

We earn Revenue primarily from the sale of products, which include cement, concrete, aggregates, gypsum wallboard, recycled paperboard, and frac sand. The vast majority of Revenue from the sale of cement, concrete, aggregates, and gypsum wallboard are originated by purchase orders from our customers, who are primarily third-party contractors and suppliers. Revenue from our Recycled Paperboard and Oil and Gas Proppants segments is generated primarily through long-term supply agreements that mature between 2018 and 2025. We also earn Revenue from transload services and storage; we recognize Revenue from these services when the product is transferred from the rail car to the truck or silo, or from the silo to the railcar or truck. We invoice customers upon shipment, and our collection terms range from 30-65 days. Revenue from the sale of cement, concrete, aggregates, and gypsum wallboard that is not related to long-term supply agreements is recognized upon shipment of the related products to customers, which is when title and ownership are transferred, and the customer is obligated to pay.  

Revenue from sales under our long-term supply agreements is also recognized upon transfer of control to the customer, which generally occurs at the time the product is shipped from the production facility or transload location. Our long-term supply agreements with customers define, among other commitments, the volume of product that we must provide and the volume that the customer must purchase by the end of the defined periods. Pricing structures under our agreements are generally market-based but are subject to certain contractual adjustments. Historically the pricing and volume requirements under certain of these contracts have been renegotiated during volatile market conditions. Shortfall amounts, if applicable under these arrangements, are constrained and not recognized as Revenue until agreement is reached with the customer and there is no risk of reversal. 

The Company offers certain of its customers, including those with long-term supply agreements, rebates and incentives, which we treat as variable consideration. We adjust the amount of revenue recognized for the variable consideration using the most likely amount method based on past history and projected volumes in the rebate and incentive period.  Any amounts billed to customers for taxes are excluded from Revenue.

The Company has elected to treat freight and delivery charges we pay for the delivery of goods to our customers as a fulfilment activity rather than a separate performance obligation. When we arrange for a third party to deliver products to customers, fees for shipping and handling that are billed to the customer are recorded as Revenue, while costs we incur for shipping and handling are recorded as expenses and included in Cost of Goods Sold.

Other Non-Operating Income includes lease and rental income, asset sale income, non-inventoried aggregates sales income, distribution center income, and trucking income, as well as other miscellaneous revenue items and costs that have not been allocated to a business segment.

See Footnote (M) to the Unaudited Consolidated Financial Statements for disaggregation of Revenue by segment.

(D) ACCOUNTS AND NOTES RECEIVABLE

Accounts and Notes Receivable have been shown net of the allowance for doubtful accounts of $9.2 million and $8.6 million at December 31, 2018 and March 31, 2018, respectively. We perform ongoing credit evaluations of our customers’ financial condition and generally require no collateral from our customers. The allowance for non-collection of receivables is based upon analysis of economic trends in the construction industry, detailed analysis of the expected collectability of accounts receivable that are past due, and the expected collectability of overall receivables. We have no significant credit risk concentration among our diversified customer base.

We had Notes Receivable totaling approximately $3.7 million at December 31, 2018, of which approximately $0.7 million has been classified as current and presented with Accounts Receivable on the balance sheet. We lend funds to certain companies in the ordinary course of business, and the notes bear interest, on average, at 4.5%. Remaining unpaid amounts, plus accrued interest, mature in fiscal 2025. The notes are collateralized by certain assets of the borrowers, namely property and equipment, and are generally payable monthly. We monitor the credit risk of each borrower by assessing the timeliness of payments, credit history, credit metrics, and our ongoing interactions with each borrower.

(E) STOCKHOLDERS’ EQUITY

During the nine months ended December 31, 2018, we repurchased 2,189,100  shares at an average price of $87.62. Subsequent to December 31, 2018, we repurchased an additional 340,000 shares through January 25, 2019, at an average price of $64.94. Including the repurchases subsequent to December 31, 2018, we have authorization to purchase an additional 1,660,328 shares.

(H) Share-BASED EMPLOYEE COMPENSATION

On August 7, 2013, our stockholders approved the Eagle Materials Inc. Amended and Restated Incentive Plan (the Plan), which increased the shares we are authorized to issue as awards by 3,000,000 (1,500,000 of which may be stock awards). Under the terms of the Plan, we can issue equity awards, including stock options, restricted stock units (RSUs), restricted stock, and stock appreciation rights to employees of the Company and members of the Board of Directors. Awards that were already outstanding prior to the approval of the Plan on August 7, 2013 remain outstanding. The Compensation Committee of our Board of Directors specifies the terms for grants of equity awards under the Plan.

Long-Term Compensation Plans

OPTIONS

In May 2018, the Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors approved the granting to certain officers and key employees an aggregate of 62,179 performance vesting stock options that will be earned only if certain performance conditions are satisfied (the Fiscal 2019 Employee Performance Stock Option Grant). The performance criteria for the Fiscal 2019 Employee Performance Stock Option Grant are based upon the achievement of certain levels of return on equity (as defined in the option agreements), ranging from 10.0% to 20.0%, for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2019. All stock options will be earned if the return on equity is 20.0% or greater, and the percentage of shares earned will be reduced proportionately to approximately 66.7% if the return on equity is 10.0%. If the Company does not achieve a return on equity of at least 10.0%, all stock options granted will be forfeited. Following any such reduction, restrictions on the earned stock options will lapse ratably over four years, with the initial fourth lapsing promptly following the determination date, and the remaining restrictions lapsing on March 31, 2020 through 2022. The stock options have a term of ten years from the date of grant. The Compensation Committee also approved the granting to the same officers and key employees of 51,814 time-vesting stock options, which vest ratably over four years (the Fiscal 2019 Employee Time-Vesting Stock Option Grant).  

In August 2018, we granted 1,741 options to members of the Board of Directors (the Fiscal 2019 Board of Directors Stock Option Grant). Options granted under the Fiscal 2019 Board of Directors Stock Option Grant vest immediately and can be exercised from the date of the grant until their expiration of the tenth anniversary of the date of grant.

The Fiscal 2019 Employee Performance Stock Option Grant, the Fiscal 2019 Employee Time-Vesting Stock Option Grant, and the Fiscal 2019 Board of Directors Stock Option Grant were valued at the grant date using the Black-Scholes option pricing model. The weighted average assumptions used in the Black-Scholes models to value the option awards in fiscal 2019 are as follows:

Stock option expense for all outstanding stock option awards totaled approximately $0.9 million and $3.0 million for the three and nine months ended December 31, 2018, respectively, and approximately $1.1 million and $3.3 million for the three and nine months ended December 31, 2017, respectively. At December 31, 2018, there was approximately $7.6 million of unrecognized compensation cost related to outstanding stock options, which is expected to be recognized over a weighted average period of 2.5 years.

RESTRICTED STOCK

In May 2018, the Compensation Committee approved the granting to certain officers and key employees an aggregate of 57,756 shares of performance vesting restricted stock that will be earned if certain performance conditions are satisfied (the Fiscal 2019 Employee Restricted Stock Performance Award). The performance criteria for the Fiscal 2019 Employee Restricted Stock Performance Award are based upon the achievement of certain levels of return on equity (as defined in the award agreement), ranging from 10.0% to 20.0%, for the fiscal

year ending March 31, 2019. All restricted shares will be earned if the return on equity is 20.0% or greater, and the percentage of shares earned will be reduced proportionately to approximately 66.7% if the return on equity is 10.0%. If the Company does not achieve a return on equity of at least 10.0%, all awards will be forfeited. Following any such reduction, restrictions on the earned shares will lapse ratably over four years, with the initial fourth lapsing promptly following the determination date, and the remaining restrictions lapsing on March 31, 2020 through 2022. The Compensation Committee also approved the granting to the same officers and key employees of 48,130 shares of time-vesting restricted stock, which vest ratably over four years (the Fiscal 2019 Employee Restricted Stock Time-Vesting Award). The Fiscal 2019 Employee Restricted Stock Performance Award and the Fiscal 2019 Employee Restricted Stock Time-Vesting Award were valued at the closing price of the stock on the date of grant and are being expensed over a four-year period.

In August 2018, we granted 15,950 shares of restricted stock to members of the Board of Directors (the Board of Directors Fiscal 2019 Restricted Stock Award), which vest six months after the grant date. The Board of Directors Fiscal 2019 Restricted Stock Award was valued at the closing price of the stock at the date of the grant and is being expensed over a six-month period.

The fair value of restricted stock is based on the stock price at the date of grant. The following table summarizes the activity for nonvested restricted shares during the nine months ended December 31, 2018:

(J) PENSION AND EMPLOYEE BENEFIT PLANS

We sponsor several defined benefit pension plans and defined contribution plans which together cover substantially all our employees. Benefits paid under the defined benefit plans covering certain hourly employees are based on each employee’s years of service and qualifying compensation over the last few years of employment.

The following table shows the components of net periodic cost for our plans:
