"AGCO continued its strong operational performance in the first quarter and set records for first quarter operating income and earnings per share," stated Eric Hansotia, AGCO’s Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer. "Favorable market demand and positive market response to our technology-focused products helped produce sales growth and margin expansion across all regions. Outstanding execution from our team allowed us to minimize the impact of ongoing supply constraints, and an improved pricing environment helped offset material and freight cost inflation. Healthy farm fundamentals are driving robust replacement demand and our order boards remain well ahead of last year. With increased visibility for the coming quarters, we have raised our net sales and earnings forecast for 2021 while enabling continued investment in our premium technology, smart farming solutions and enhanced digital capabilities."

"The ongoing economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic is putting pressure on global grain inventories which are well below last year’s levels," stated Mr. Hansotia. "As a result, prices of soft commodity are supporting more favorable farm economics as well as increased demand for machinery. These improved conditions are expected to generate industry growth across all the major markets in 2021."

"North American industry retail sales increased in the first three months of 2021 compared to the same period in 2020," continued Mr. Hansotia. "Sales of low horsepower tractors moved above prior peak levels while demand for high horsepower tractors also improved. With the fleet age remaining extended, industry retail sales of North America large agricultural equipment grew approximately 12% in the first quarter. Industry retail sales in Western Europe also increased in the first quarter of 2021 with growth across nearly all major markets. With higher wheat, dairy and livestock prices projecting favorable farm economics, farmer sentiment is expected to remain strong in Western Europe, supporting increased equipment demand in 2021. In South America, industry sales increased during the first three months of 2021 driven by improved demand in both Brazil and Argentina as well as recovery in the smaller export markets. A healthy first crop as well as favorable exchange rates are supporting positive economic conditions for farmers who continue to replace an aged fleet. Our long-term global view remains positive. Increasing demand for commodities, driven by the growing world population, as well as rising emerging market protein consumption and biofuel use, are expected to support elevated farm income and healthy conditions in our industry."

North America

AGCO’s North American net sales increased 9.7% in the first three months of 2021 compared to the same period of 2020, excluding the positive impact of currency translation. Increased sales of tractors, parts, grain and protein equipment and Precision Planting products generated most of the increase. Income from operations for the first three months of 2021 grew approximately $14.0 million compared to the same period in 2020 and operating margins reached 12.3%. Higher sales and production as well as the benefit of favorable pricing contributed to the improvement.

South America

Net sales in the South American region increased 83.8% in the first three months of 2021 compared to the same period of 2020, excluding the impact of unfavorable currency translation. Sales grew across all markets with the largest increases in Brazil and Argentina. Income from operations in the first three months of 2021 increased by approximately $25.0 million compared to the same period in 2020. The improved South America results reflect the benefit of higher sales and production, in addition to a richer sales mix with improved pricing offsetting material cost inflation.

Europe/Middle East

AGCO’s Europe/Middle East net sales increased 11.5% in the first three months of 2021 compared to the same period in 2020, excluding favorable currency translation impacts. Sales growth was achieved in all major markets with high horsepower tractors and parts showing the largest increases. Income from operations increased approximately $42.0 million in the first three months of 2021, compared to the same period in 2020, due to higher net sales and production volumes.

Asia/Pacific/Africa

Net sales in Asia/Pacific/Africa increased 65.9%, excluding the positive impact of currency translation, in the first three months of 2021 compared to the same period in 2020. Higher sales in China, Australia as well as Africa produced most of the increase. Income from operations improved by approximately $22.3 million in the first three months of 2021, compared to the same period in 2020.

Outlook

The health, safety and well-being of all AGCO employees, dealers and farmer customers continues to be AGCO’s top priority during the COVID-19 pandemic. The following outlook does not contemplate any further sales or production disruptions caused by the pandemic.

AGCO’s net sales for 2021 are expected to range from $10.6 billion to $10.8 billion, reflecting improved sales volumes, pricing and positive foreign currency translation. Gross and operating margins are projected to improve from 2020 levels, reflecting the impact of higher sales and production volumes as well as margin improvement initiatives. These improvements are planned to fund increases in engineering and other technology investments to support AGCO’s precision agriculture and digital initiatives. Based on these assumptions, 2021 earnings per share is targeted in a range from $8.40 to $8.60.

Safe Harbor Statement

Statements that are not historical facts, including the projections of earnings per share, sales, industry demand, market conditions, commodity prices, currency translation, farm income levels, margin levels, investments in product and technology development, new product introductions, restructuring and other cost reduction initiatives, production volumes, tax rates and general economic conditions, are forward-looking and subject to risks that could cause actual results to differ materially from those suggested by the statements. The following are among the factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from the results discussed in or implied by the forward-looking statements.

  • The Company is uncertain of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic due to increased volatility in global economic and political environments, market demand for its products, supply chain disruptions, workforce availability, exchange rate and commodity price volatility and availability of financing, and their impact to the Company’s net sales, production volumes, costs and overall financial condition and liquidity. The Company may be required to record significant impairment charges in the future with respect to certain noncurrent assets such as goodwill and other intangible assets and equity method investments, whose fair values may be negatively affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. The Company also may be required to write-down obsolete inventory due to decreased customer demand and sales orders. Additionally, the Company is closely monitoring the collection of accounts receivable, as well as the operating results of it finance joint ventures around the world. If economic conditions around the world continue to deteriorate, the Company may not be able to sufficiently collect accounts receivable, and the operating results of its finance joint ventures may be negatively impacted, thus negatively impacting the Company’s results of operations and financial condition. The Company is also closely assessing its compliance with debt covenants, the recognition of any future applicable insurance recoveries, cash flow hedging forecasts as compared to actual transactions, the fair value of pension assets, accounting for incentive and stock compensation accruals, revenue recognition and discount reserve setting and the realization of deferred tax assets in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.

  • Our financial results depend entirely upon the agricultural industry, and factors that adversely affect the agricultural industry generally, including declines in the general economy, adverse weather, tariffs, increases in farm input costs, lower commodity prices, lower farm income and changes in the availability of credit for our retail customers, will adversely affect us.

  • A majority of our sales and manufacturing takes place outside the United States, and, many of our sales involve products that are manufactured in one country and sold in a different country, and as a result, we are exposed to risks related to foreign laws, taxes and tariffs, trade restrictions, economic conditions, labor supply and relations, political conditions and governmental policies. These risks may delay or reduce our realization of value from our international operations. Among these risks are the uncertain consequences of Brexit, Russian sanctions and tariffs imposed on exports to and imports from China.

  • Most retail sales of the products that we manufacture are financed, either by our joint ventures with Rabobank or by a bank or other private lender. Our joint ventures with Rabobank, which are controlled by Rabobank and are dependent upon Rabobank for financing as well, finance over 50% of the retail sales of our tractors and combines in the markets where the joint ventures operate. Any difficulty by Rabobank to continue to provide that financing, or any business decision by Rabobank as the controlling member not to fund the business or particular aspects of it (for example, a particular country or region), would require the joint ventures to find other sources of financing (which may be difficult to obtain), or us to find another source of retail financing for our customers, or our customers would be required to utilize other retail financing providers. As a result of the recent economic downturn, financing for capital equipment purchases generally has become more difficult in certain regions and in some cases, can be expensive to obtain. To the extent that financing is not available or available only at unattractive prices, our sales would be negatively impacted.

  • Both AGCO and our finance joint ventures have substantial accounts receivable from dealers and end customers, and we would be adversely impacted if the collectability of these receivables was not consistent with historical experience; this collectability is dependent upon the financial strength of the farm industry, which in turn is dependent upon the general economy and commodity prices, as well as several of the other factors listed in this section.

  • We have experienced substantial and sustained volatility with respect to currency exchange rate and interest rate changes, which can adversely affect our reported results of operations and the competitiveness of our products.

  • Our success depends on the introduction of new products, particularly engines that comply with emission requirements and sustainable smart farming technology, which requires substantial expenditures; there is no certainty that we can develop the necessary technology or that the technology that we develop will be attractive to farmers or available at competitive prices.

  • Our production levels and capacity constraints at our facilities, including those resulting from plant expansions and systems upgrades at our manufacturing facilities, could adversely affect our results.

  • Our expansion plans in emerging markets, including establishing a greater manufacturing and marketing presence and growing our use of component suppliers, could entail significant risks.

  • Our business increasingly is subject to regulations relating to privacy and data protection, and if we violate any of those regulations or otherwise are the victim of a cyber attack, we could incur significant losses and liability.

  • We depend on suppliers for components, parts and raw materials for our products, and any failure by our suppliers to provide products as needed, or by us to promptly address supplier issues, will adversely impact our ability to timely and efficiently manufacture and sell products. It remains unclear, how, if at all, the recent outbreak of the coronavirus will impact the agricultural industry, our suppliers or our global operations.

  • We are subject to raw material price fluctuations, which can adversely affect our manufacturing costs.

  • We face significant competition, and if we are unable to compete successfully against other agricultural equipment manufacturers, we would lose customers and our net sales and profitability would decline.

  • We have a substantial amount of indebtedness, and, as a result, we are subject to certain restrictive covenants and payment obligations that may adversely affect our ability to operate and expand our business.

Further information concerning these and other factors is included in AGCO’s filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including its Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020. AGCO disclaims any obligation to update any forward-looking statements except as required by law.

2. RESTRUCTURING EXPENSES

In recent years, the Company has announced and initiated several actions to rationalize employee headcount in various manufacturing facilities and administrative offices located in the U.S., Europe, South America, Africa and China in order to reduce costs in response to softening global market demand. The Company also has undertaken rationalizations of its grain and protein business during 2019 and 2020. As of December 31, 2020, the Company had approximately $16.8 million of accrued severance, facility closure and other costs related to such rationalizations. During the three months ended March 31, 2021, the Company recorded an additional $1.3 million of severance and related costs associated with further rationalizations, and paid approximately $6.2 million of severance and facility closure costs. The remaining $11.6 million of severance, facility closure and other related costs as of March 31, 2021, inclusive of approximately $0.3 million of negative foreign currency translation impacts, are expected to be paid primarily during 2021.

7. SEGMENT REPORTING

The Company’s four reportable segments distribute a full range of agricultural equipment and related replacement parts. The Company evaluates segment performance primarily based on income from operations. Sales for each segment are based on the location of the third-party customer. The Company’s selling, general and administrative expenses and engineering expenses are generally charged to each segment based on the region and division where the expenses are incurred. As a result, the components of income from operations for one segment may not be comparable to another segment. Segment results for the three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020 are as follows (in millions):
