|Basis of Presentation and Accounting Policy Information||Basis of Presentation
Thermon Group Holdings, Inc. and its direct and indirect subsidiaries are referred to collectively as “we,” “our,” or the “Company” herein. We are one of the largest providers of highly engineered industrial process heating solutions for process industries. We offer a full suite of products (heating units, heating cables, temporary power solutions and tubing bundles), services (engineering, installation and maintenance services) and software (design optimization and wireless and network control systems) required to deliver comprehensive solutions to some of the world's largest and most complex projects.
Our condensed consolidated financial statements are prepared in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States ("GAAP") and the requirements of the United States Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") for interim financial information. Accordingly, the accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements do not include all disclosures required for full annual financial statements and should be read in conjunction with our audited consolidated financial statements and notes thereto for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2021 ("fiscal 2021"). In our opinion, the accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements reflect all adjustments considered necessary to present fairly our financial position at September 30, 2021 and March 31, 2021, and the results of our operations for the three and six months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020. Certain prior year amounts have been reclassified to conform with the current year's presentation.
Impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic
The COVID-19 pandemic and the measures being taken to address and limit the spread of the virus have adversely affected the economies and financial markets of many countries, resulting in an economic downturn that negatively impacted, and may continue to negatively impact, global demand for our products and services. Although we believe the general economic environment in which we operate has improved since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, we may experience a decline in the demand of our products and services or disruptions in raw materials required for manufacturing that could materially and negatively impact our business, financial condition, results of operation and overall financial performance in future periods. We have experienced increased costs across our global supply chain as we focus on meeting growing demand from our customers. In certain circumstances, we have had issues with a lack of availability of certain raw materials as well as increases in costs of our raw materials due to: use of alternate suppliers, higher freight costs, increased lead times, and expedited shipping. Also, we have seen construction labor inefficiencies and increased overtime in certain of our facilities due to temporary shortages in raw materials required for production. These increased costs have contributed to lower-than-anticipated margins in the three and six months ended September 30, 2021.
On April 11, 2020, the Canadian government officially enacted the Canadian Emergency Wage Subsidy (the “CEWS”) for the purposes of assisting employers in financial hardship due to the COVID-19 pandemic and of reducing potential layoffs of employees. The CEWS, which was made retroactive to March 15, 2020, generally provides “eligible entities” with a wage subsidy of up to 75% of “eligible remuneration” paid to an eligible employee per week, limited to a certain weekly maximum. On September 23, 2020, the Canadian government announced that the CEWS program would be extended through the summer of 2021 and announced certain modifications to the subsidy calculation. Our Canadian operations have benefited from such wage subsidies and have received related distributions from the Canadian government. During the three and six months ended September 30, 2021, we recorded subsidies for which we qualify in the amount of $571 and $1,510, respectively. For the three and six months ended September 30, 2020, we recorded subsidies of $2,532 and $4,948, respectively. This was recorded as an offset or reduction to the related underlying expenses and assets, accordingly. We anticipate our benefit from the CEWS program to decline in fiscal 2022 as we become less qualified for the subsidy.
Use of Estimates
Generally accepted accounting principles requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosures of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reported period. While management has based their assumptions and estimates on the facts and circumstances existing at September 30, 2021, actual results could differ from those estimates and affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, disclosures of contingent assets and liabilities and the corresponding revenues and expenses as of the date of the financial statements. The operating results for the three and six months ended September 30, 2021 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be achieved for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2022 ("fiscal 2022").
We increased our allowance for doubtful accounts at September 30, 2021 to $3,310 from $2,074 at March 31, 2021. The increase in the period is an accrual for bad debts related to potentially uncollectible receivables in our EMEA reportable segment.
Restricted Cash and Cash Equivalents
The Company maintains restricted cash related to certain letter of credit guarantees and performance bonds securing performance obligations. The following table provides a reconciliation of cash, cash equivalents, and restricted cash included in prepaid expenses and other current assets and restricted cash included in other long-term assets reported within the condensed consolidated balance sheets that sum to the total of the same such amounts shown in the statements of cash flows.
Amounts shown in restricted cash included in prepaid expenses and other current assets and other long-term assets represent those required to be set aside by a contractual agreement, which contain cash deposits pledged as collateral on performance bonds and letters of credit. Amounts shown in restricted cash in other long-term assets represent such agreements that require a commitment term longer than one year.
Correction of an Error
During the current quarter, we identified an error in our previously issued unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements as of and for the three months ended June 30, 2021, as well as our consolidated financial statements as of and for the three months ended March 31, 2021. The error was due to underreported warranty costs associated with the operational execution of a large project in our US-LAM segment that completed in a prior year for which we are supplying engineering services, installation services, and equipment. Management evaluated the materiality of the error from a qualitative and quantitative perspective and concluded that the error was not material to any one quarterly period. Accordingly, we corrected the error in the consolidated balance sheets at March 31, 2021 and consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive income for the three and twelve months ended March 31, 2021. We also corrected the error in the unaudited condensed consolidated balance sheets at June 30, 2021, and unaudited condensed consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive income for the three months ended June 30, 2021 is as follows:
Recent Accounting Pronouncements
Reference Rate Reform - In March 2020, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update 2020-04 - Reference Rate Reform ("ASC 848"). The update is intended to provide temporary optional expedients and exceptions to the GAAP guidance on contract modifications and hedge accounting to ease the financial reporting burdens related to the expected market transition from the London Interbank Offered Rate (LIBOR) and other interbank offered rates to alternative reference rates. As of September 30, 2021, we have not yet elected any optional expedients provided in the standard. We will apply the accounting relief, if necessary, as relevant contract and hedge accounting relationship modifications are made during the reference rate reform transition period.
Income Taxes - In December 2019, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update 2019-12 - Income Taxes ("ASC 740"): Simplifying the Accounting for Income Taxes. This ASU amends ASC 740 to simplify certain requirements related to income taxes, specifically as it relates to interim period accounting for changes in tax law and year-to-date loss limitation in interim period accounting. The new standard is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2020. We adopted this standard effective April 1, 2021, and such adoption did not have a material impact on our consolidated financial statements.
