LEGGETT & PLATT, INCORPORATED
NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED CONDENSED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(Unaudited)
(Amounts in millions, except per share data)
1. INTERIM PRESENTATION
The interim financial statements of Leggett & Platt, Incorporated (“we”, “us” or “our”) included herein have not been audited by an independent registered public accounting firm. The statements include all adjustments, including normal recurring accruals, which management considers necessary for a fair statement of our financial position and operating results for the periods presented. We have prepared the statements pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission. Accordingly, certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("GAAP") have been condensed or omitted pursuant to such rules and regulations. The operating results for interim periods are not necessarily indicative of results to be expected for an entire year.
The December 31, 2015 financial position data included herein was derived from the audited consolidated financial statements included in Form 10-K, but does not include all disclosures required by GAAP. For further information, refer to the financial statements and footnotes included in our annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2015.
Reclassifications
Certain reclassifications have been made to the prior period's information in the Consolidated Condensed Financial Statements and related notes to conform to the third quarter 2016 income statement and September 30, 2016 balance sheet presentation. The first reclassification was a result of changes in our management organizational structure and related internal reporting (See Note 4 - Segment Information). The final was a balance sheet reclassification associated with new accounting guidance for the presentation of debt issuance costs as discussed below.

2. ACCOUNTING STANDARD UPDATES
    
The Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) regularly issues updates to the FASB Accounting Standards Codification that are communicated through issuance of an Accounting Standards Update (ASU).   Below is a summary of the ASUs, effective for current or future periods, most relevant to our financial statements:
 
ASU 2016-09 “Improvements to Employee Share-Based Payment Accounting”:  Simplifies the financial reporting for share-based compensation.  We adopted this guidance in the first quarter of 2016:
All income tax effects of stock-based compensation are now classified within income tax expense, rather than recognizing some of the effects in additional contributed capital.  To the extent tax deductions from stock-based compensation payments differ from the compensation cost recognized for financial reporting purposes, the tax effects are recorded as discrete items in that quarter.
Prospective application was required, and the impact of adopting this new guidance resulted in an additional tax benefit of $8.8 recorded in the third quarter of 2016, and $17.1 for the first nine months of 2016.
This ASU impacted the calculation of the dilutive effect of stock-based compensation on earnings per share, which resulted in an increase in our average diluted shares outstanding of approximately .5 shares.      
The income tax effects are now classified as cash flow from operations, rather than cash flow from financing activities. We have elected to apply this cash flow classification guidance prospectively.
Consistent with our past practice, when shares are withheld from the issuance of stock to fund the payment of the employee’s taxes, the payment is classified as a financing activity.
We have elected to continue to estimate the number of stock-based awards expected to vest, rather than electing to account for forfeitures as they occur.

ASU 2016 -02 “ Leases”:  Requires that a lessee recognize a right-of-use asset and a lease liability on the balance sheet for most lease arrangements. This ASU will be effective January 1, 2019, and we are assessing all potential impacts of the standard. Currently, we anticipate adopting this standard January 1, 2019. We believe it will most significantly impact our assets and liabilities for the addition of right-of-use assets and the corresponding lease liabilities on the balance sheet. We are evaluating its impact on our statements of operations and cash flows.


6



ASUs 2016-13 “Financial Instruments - Credit Losses”, 2016-15 “Statement of Cash Flows (Topic 230): Classification of Certain Cash Receipts and Cash Payments (a consensus of the Emerging Issues Task Force)”, and 2016-16 “Income Taxes (Topic 740): Intra-Entity Transfers of Assets Other Than Inventory” are currently being evaluated, however, we do not expect these updates to materially impact our future financial statements.
 
ASU 2015-03 “Simplifying the Presentation of Debt Issuance Costs”:  Changes the presentation of long-term debt issuance costs in the financial statements to a reduction of the related liability rather than as a separate asset. We adopted this ASU in the first quarter of 2016 and retrospectively reclassified net deferred loan costs associated with each of our long-term debt issuances from assets to long-term debt on the balance sheet.  The adoption of this ASU did not have a material impact on our financial statements.             

ASU 2014-09 “Revenue from Contracts with Customers”:  Supersedes most of the existing authoritative literature for revenue recognition and prescribes a five-step model for recognizing revenue from contracts with customers. In July 2015, the FASB deferred the effective date of this ASU by one year, which results in the new standard being effective January 1, 2018. In addition, the FASB has issued several amendments to the standard during 2016. This standard permits two transition methods, the full retrospective method or the modified retrospective method. The new standard will also require expanded disclosures pertaining to revenues from contracts with customers in the notes to the financial statements.

We established a cross-functional implementation team in 2014 to assess all potential impacts of this standard We continue to make progress in implementing the new revenue standard and in evaluating its impact on our future financial statements. We have not yet selected a transition method. We will apply the guidance at the new revenue standard’s effective date of January 1, 2018.

3. INVENTORIES
About 50% of our inventories are valued using the Last-In, First-Out (LIFO) cost method and the remainder using the First-In, First-Out (FIFO) cost method. We calculate our LIFO reserve (the excess of FIFO cost over LIFO cost) on an annual basis. During interim periods, we estimate the current year annual change in the LIFO reserve (i.e., the annual LIFO expense or benefit) and allocate that change ratably to the four quarters. Because accurately predicting inventory prices for the year is difficult, the change in the LIFO reserve for the full year could be significantly different from the amount currently estimated. In addition, a variation in expected ending inventory levels could also impact total change in the LIFO reserve for the year.
The following table contains the LIFO (expense) benefit included in continuing operations for each of the periods presented.

4. SEGMENT INFORMATION
Our reportable segments are the same as our operating segments, which also correspond with our management organizational structure. During the fourth quarter of 2015, our logistics operations, which primarily include intercompany transportation activity, were moved from Residential Furnishings to Industrial Materials. This segment change was retrospectively applied to all prior periods presented.
We have four operating segments that supply a wide range of products:
Residential Furnishings—components for bedding and furniture, fabric and carpet cushion
Commercial Products—components for office and institutional furnishings, adjustable beds and consumer products
Industrial Materials—drawn steel wire, fabricated wire products and steel rod
Specialized Products—automotive seating components, tubing and sub-assemblies for the aerospace industry, specialized machinery and equipment, and commercial vehicle interiors
Each reportable segment has a senior operating vice-president that reports to the chief executive officer, who is the chief operating decision maker. The operating results and financial information reported through the segment structure are regularly

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED CONDENSED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS—(Continued)


(Unaudited)
 


reviewed and used by the chief operating decision maker to evaluate segment performance, allocate overall resources and determine management incentive compensation.
 
Separately, we also utilize a role-based approach (Grow, Core, Fix or Divest) as a supplemental management tool to ensure capital (which is a subset of the overall resources referred to above) is efficiently allocated within the reportable segment structure.
The accounting principles used in the preparation of the segment information are the same as those used for the consolidated financial statements, except that the segment assets and income reflect the FIFO basis of accounting for inventory. Certain inventories are accounted for using the LIFO basis in the consolidated financial statements. We evaluate performance based on EBIT (Earnings Before Interest and Taxes). Intersegment sales are made primarily at prices that approximate market-based selling prices. Centrally incurred costs are allocated to the segments based on estimates of services used by the segment. Certain of our general and administrative costs and miscellaneous corporate income and expenses are allocated to the segments based on sales. These allocated corporate costs include depreciation and other costs and income related to assets that are not allocated or otherwise included in the segment assets.

5. DISCONTINUED OPERATIONS AND ASSETS HELD FOR SALE

Discontinued Operations

During the fourth quarter of 2014, we divested the majority of our Store Fixtures reporting unit, which was previously part of the Commercial Products segment. We sold the final Store Fixtures business in the fourth quarter of 2015. Total consideration for these businesses was approximately $72 during this time period. No significant gains or losses were realized on the sale of these businesses.

(1) Subsequent activity for businesses divested in prior years has been reported as discontinued operations in the table above.
In the second quarter of 2016, we reached a settlement of our antitrust claims against The Dow Chemical Company, by agreeing to release our claims regarding this matter for a net cash payment of approximately $38 (pre-tax, after deducting expenses). Of this $38, $31.4 was associated with our former Prime Foam Products unit (previously part of the Residential Furnishings Segment), which we sold in March 2007. The after-tax income associated with the settlement was approximately $25, of which approximately $20 is reflected in discontinued operations for the nine months ended September 30, 2016.  With this second quarter settlement, this matter was fully resolved.

Other Long-Lived Assets
 
We test other long-lived assets for recoverability at year-end and whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying value may not be recoverable. Fair value and the resulting impairment charges noted above were based primarily upon offers from potential buyers or third party estimates of fair value less selling costs.
 
Goodwill Impairment Reviews
 
We test goodwill for impairment at the reporting unit level when triggering events occur, or at least annually. We perform our goodwill impairment review in the second quarter of each year. Our reporting units are the business groups that are one level below the operating segment level.

2015
During the first quarter of 2015, the Steel Tubing unit met the held for sale criteria. Because fair value less costs to sell had fallen below the carrying amount, we fully impaired this unit's goodwill and incurred a $4.1 goodwill impairment charge in the first quarter of 2015.

In the second quarter of 2015, we performed a quantitative analysis under the two-step model, and all of our reporting units were determined to have a fair value in excess of their carrying amounts in a range of 55% to 86% of their respective fair values.

2016
Because all reporting units had fair values that exceeded carrying value by more than 55% during the 2015 review, we performed a qualitative assessment (Step Zero Analysis) for our annual goodwill impairment review in the second quarter of 2016. Among other things, we considered i) the excess in fair value of the reporting unit over its carrying amount from the most recent quantitative analysis, ii) macroeconomic conditions, iii) industry and market trends, and iv) overall financial performance. Based on the Step Zero Analysis we concluded that it is more likely than not that the fair value of the reporting units exceeded their carrying amount, except for our CVP reporting unit.

With regard to our CVP reporting unit, in the second quarter of 2016 we sold one of our two remaining businesses.  Additionally, real estate associated with the remaining CVP business reached held for sale status during the second quarter of 2016.  As a result of these two events, the fair value of the CVP reporting unit (consisting of one remaining business) had fallen below its carrying amount, and we fully impaired the remaining $3.7 of goodwill for this reporting unit.

(1) Performance Stock Unit Awards
We grant Performance Stock Unit (PSU) awards in the first quarter of each year to selected officers and other key managers. Expense is recognized using the straight-line method over the three-year vesting period. These awards contain the following conditions:

A service requirement—Awards generally “cliff” vest three years following the grant date; and
A market condition—Awards are based on our Total Shareholder Return [TSR = (Change in Stock Price + Dividends) / Beginning Stock Price] as compared to the TSR of a group of peer companies. The peer group consists of all the companies in the Industrial, Materials and Consumer Discretionary sectors of the S&P 500 and S&P Midcap 400 (approximately 320 companies). Participants will earn from 0% to 175% of the base award depending upon how our Total Shareholder Return ranks within the peer group at the end of the 3-year performance period.
Grant date fair values are calculated using a Monte Carlo simulation of stock and volatility data for Leggett and each of the peer companies.

For outstanding awards, we intend to pay 65% in shares of our common stock, although we reserve the right to pay up to 100% in cash. The additional amount that represents 35% of the award will be settled in cash, and is recorded as a liability and adjusted to fair value at each reporting period.

(2) Profitable Growth Incentive Awards

Certain key management employees participate in a Profitable Growth Incentive (PGI) program. The PGI awards are issued as growth performance stock units (GPSUs). The GPSUs vest (0% to 250%) at the end of a two-year performance period. Vesting is based on the Company's or applicable profit center's revenue growth (adjusted by a GDP factor when applicable) and EBITDA margin at the end of a two-year performance period. The 2016 and 2015 base target PGI awards were less than .1 shares. If earned, we intend to pay half in shares of our common stock and half in cash, although we reserve the right to pay up to 100% in cash. Both components are adjusted to fair value at each reporting period.

A brief description of our most significant acquisitions by year is included below.
2016
In August 2016, we acquired a distributor of geosynthetic products for a cash purchase price of $11.3. This business expands our presence in the converting and distribution of geotextiles and geosynthetic products, which contributed to the recognition of $2.0 in goodwill from the acquisition.
Also in 2016, we expanded our Aerospace Products business unit with the acquisition of a U.S. fabricated tubing business for a purchase price of $16.4. Factors contributing to the recognition of $3.8 in goodwill from the acquisition included further expansion of our tube forming and fabrication capabilities, and adds precision machining to our aerospace platform.
2015
In 2015, we acquired a 70% interest in a European private-label manufacturer of high-end upholstered furniture for office, commercial and other settings for a purchase price of $22.7. This business is complementary to our North American private-label operation and allows us to support our Work Furniture customers as they expand globally. We will acquire the remaining 30% in 2018 and 2020, per the terms of the agreement, and have recorded a long-term liability of approximately $12 for the future payments. Future payments are based upon a calculation that incorporates future EBITDA. The recorded liability is based upon estimates and may fluctuate significantly until the payment dates. Fluctuations in this liability will be reflected in interest income or expense on the Consolidated Condensed Statement of Operations.

The results of operations of the above acquired companies have been included in the consolidated financial statements since the dates of acquisition. The unaudited pro forma consolidated net sales, net earnings and earnings per share as though the 2016 and 2015 acquisitions had occurred on January 1 of each year presented are not materially different from the amounts reflected in the accompanying financial statements. Certain of our acquisition agreements provide for additional consideration to be paid in cash at a later date and are recorded as a liability at the acquisition date. At September 30, 2016, there was no material remaining consideration payable other than the liability discussed above.

2016 Acquisition of Noncontrolling Interest

In 2016, we purchased the remaining 30% ownership in an Asian joint venture for $35.2. This business manufactures seat frames and lumbar support systems and is in the Automotive Group of our Specialized Products segment.
