Thermon Group Holdings, Inc. and its direct and indirect subsidiaries are referred to collectively as “we,” “our,” or the “Company” herein. We are a provider of highly engineered industrial process heating solutions for process industries. Our core thermal solutions product - also referred to as heat tracing - provides an external heat source to pipes, vessels and instruments for the purposes of freeze protection, temperature and flow maintenance, environmental monitoring, and surface snow and ice melting. In addition to our heat tracing products, we also provide (i) industrial process heating solutions focused on advanced heating and filtration solutions for industrial and hazardous area applications, which are sold under our Thermon Heating Solutions (or “THS”) brand, and (ii) temporary power products that are designed to provide a safe and efficient means of supplying temporary electrical power distribution and lighting at energy infrastructure facilities for new construction and during maintenance and turnaround projects at operating facilities, which are sold under our Thermon Power Solutions (or “TPS”) brand. As a manufacturer, we offer a full suite of products (such as heating units, heating cables, tubing bundles and control systems) and services (such as design optimization, engineering, installation and maintenance services) required to deliver comprehensive solutions to complex projects.
The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with our audited consolidated financial statements and notes thereto for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2020, ("fiscal 2020"). In our opinion, the accompanying consolidated financial statements reflect all adjustments considered necessary to present fairly our financial position at December 31, 2020 and March 31, 2020, and the results of our operations for the three and nine months ended December 31, 2020 and 2019.
Impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic
The recent 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 has negatively impacted, and may continue to negatively impact, global demand for our products and services. We may experience a decline in the demand of our products and services that could materially and negatively impact our business, financial condition, results of operation and overall financial performance in future periods.
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 lay-offs 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 distributions from the Canadian government during the nine months period ended December 31, 2020. During the three and nine months ended December 31, 2020, we recorded subsidies in the amount of $979 and $5,928, respectively, for which we qualify, as an offset or reduction to the related underlying expenses and assets, accordingly.
Use of Estimates
Generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) 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 our management has based their assumptions and estimates on the facts and circumstances existing at December 31, 2020, 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 nine months ended December 31, 2020 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be achieved for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2021 ("fiscal 2021").
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 statement of financial position that sum to the total of the same such amounts shown in the statement 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.
Recent Accounting Pronouncements
Financial Instruments- In June 2016, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update 2016-13 Financial Instruments -Credit Losses (“ASC Topic 326”), which amends the guidance on the impairment of financial instruments. The standard adds an impairment model, referred to as current expected credit loss, which is based on expected losses rather than incurred losses. The standard applies to most debt instruments, trade receivables, lease receivables, reinsurance receivables, financial guarantees and loan commitments. Under the guidance, companies are required to disclose credit quality indicators disaggregated by year of origination for a five-year period. The new guidance is effective for fiscal years and interim periods within those fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019. We adopted this standard effective April 1, 2020, and such adoption did not have a material impact on our consolidated financial statements.
Intangibles- In January 2017, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update 2017-04 Intangibles - Goodwill and other (“ASC Topic 350”), which amends and simplifies the accounting for goodwill impairment by eliminating step 2 of the goodwill impairment test. Under the amended guidance, goodwill impairment will be measured as the excess of the reporting unit’s carrying value over its fair value, not to exceed the carrying amount of goodwill for that reporting unit. The changes are effective for annual and interim periods beginning after December 15, 2019, and amendments should be applied prospectively. Early adoption is permitted for any impairment tests performed after January 1, 2017. We adopted this standard effective April 1, 2020, and such adoption did not have a material impact on our consolidated financial statements.
Reference Rate Reform - In March 2020, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update 2020-04 - Reference Rate Reform ("ASC Topic 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 December 31, 2020, 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 Topic 740"): Simplifying the Accounting for Income Taxes." This ASU amends ASC 740 to add, remove, and clarify disclosure requirements related to income taxes. The new standard is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2020. We are still evaluating the impact of this new standard.
