The board of directors (the "Directors" or the "Board") of Techtronic Industries Company Limited ("TTI" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the audited consolidated results of the Company and its subsidiaries (together, the "Group") for the year ended December 31, 2020 together with the comparative figures in 2019.

BUSINESS REVIEW

We are pleased to announce that 2020 was an outstanding year for TTI with exceptional revenue and profit growth. We reported sales of US$9.8 billion, an increase of 28.0%. Our second half sales grew an exceptional 42.3%, outpacing the market. Increased strategic investment in new product, manufacturing capacity, geographic expansion, and our in-field marketing initiatives is the driving force behind our industry leading extraordinary growth.

TTI continued to strengthen its global leadership position with robust sales growth in every business unit and in all geographic regions. North America delivered growth of 29.5%, EMEA grew 19.1% and ROW grew 30.6%. Our Power Equipment business, representing 89.0% of total sales, grew 28.5% to US$8.7 billion. Our MILWAUKEE Professional, the RYOBI DIY, and the RYOBI Outdoor businesses all delivered double-digit growth. Our Floorcare business produced sales growth of 23.6% to US$1.1 billion.

Gross margin improved for the 12th consecutive year, from 37.7% in 2019 to 38.3% in 2020. This gross margin improvement is a direct result of the launching of high margin new product, disciplined mix management, exceptional productivity gains and volume leverage. Additionally, our relentless focus on operational excellence improved productivity throughout our operations.

A major strategic initiative for TTI is our commitment to building out a world class e-commerce capability.

We achieved fantastic traction with e-commerce and Buy Online Pickup in Store (BOPIS). We have worked closely with our customers, capitalizing on the accelerated shift to online and BOPIS. An example of our world class leadership in e-commerce is The Home Depot presenting us with their Omnichannel Interconnected Partner of the Year award in 2020.

Our response to COVID

When it became clear that the coronavirus was a global issue, our immediate priority was to focus on the safety of our employees, their families, our customers and end-users. We are incredibly proud of the way our global team managed throughout this pandemic, staying safe while supporting our customers.

Starting in April 2020, we made a bold decision to further accelerate investment in additional sales/field marketing specialists, engineers, new product development resources and geographic expansion to seize market share and drive above market growth. We also made the bold decision to aggressively expand manufacturing capacity in China, Vietnam, Mexico, and North America and we invested in higher levels of inventory to better serve our customers.

Financial Performance

EBIT increased 29.0% to US$868 million, with the EBIT margin improving by 10 basis points to 8.9%. Net Profit rose 30.2% to US$801 million, with earnings per share increasing 30.1% over 2019 to US43.80 cents. We invested in inventory to support our above market growth levels, while working capital management remained best-in-class at 14.0% of sales.

REVIEW OF OPERATIONS

Power Equipment

Our Power Equipment segment delivered sales growth of 28.5% to US $8.7 billion. During the period, we seized on the opportunity to aggressively invest in our business and grew operating profit 27.3% to US $844 million. All geographies and all business units contributed to this tremendous performance. Based on our bold and aggressive investments, we believe MILWAUKEE is the #1 global Professional Tool brand and RYOBI is now the #1 DIY Tool brand worldwide.

MILWAUKEE Professional Business

The 25.8% growth in our flagship MILWAUKEE Professional business was propelled by our innovative new products. In 2020, we expanded our industry leading M18 and M12 cordless product platforms while introducing the breakthrough cordless MX FUEL Equipment System. We also expanded our existing line up of power tool accessories, PACKOUT storage solutions, Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and mechanics hand tools. These new product introductions, combined with our focus on end user conversions and strong commercial execution, drive the exciting growth momentum of this business.

Power Tools

Our MILWAUKEE Professional business continued to convert users from traditional power sources including corded, pneumatic, hydraulic and petrol tools to our lithium cordless battery technology. Leading the way is the MILWAUKEE M18 system with 213 tools on the platform, the M12 system with 125 tools and the MX FUEL range with 10 products.

The MILWAUKEE M18 platform continued to launch a series of best in class additions. For example, in the cordless nailing category, our new M18 FUEL Framing Nailers and Staplers all deliver powerful performance, eliminating compressors, hoses and gas cartridges. In addition to expanding into new product categories, we introduced our next generation M18 FUEL SAWZALL Reciprocating Saw.

We also expanded the MILWAUKEE M12 subcompact cordless platform with a series of innovative tools. One of most successful innovative new products for the company was the exciting M12 FUEL HATCHET 6 Pruning Saw that is widely accepted in the professional landscaping industry.

Storage

The MILWAUKEE PACKOUT storage system continues to expand to meet the professional's growing tool storage, transportation, and organizational needs. New innovations to the system of over 36 interchangeable products include the PACKOUT Customizable Work Surface, PACKOUT 16QT Cooler, M18 PACKOUT Light/Charger and PACKOUT 2-Wheeled Cart.

RYOBI

RYOBI is the #1 DIY Tool brand in the world featuring 123 tools, 44 outdoor products, and 15 cleaning products in the ONE+ battery system alone. In 2020, the RYOBI business delivered double-digit growth driven by a stream of new product launches featuring the next generation RYOBI ONE+ HP brushless series. The subcompact design and exceptional performance of these HP brushless tools have enhanced the entire global RYOBI DIY platform. With 18 new ONE+ HP and 7 new 40V HP products launching in early 2021, our RYOBI HP new product pipeline is extremely exciting. We will continue to invest heavily in expanding our global DIY leadership position with these high-end HP brushless products and expect that it will catalyze growth in the DIY arena for years to come.

The RYOBI Outdoor business delivered another year of outstanding results, led by our global leadership of cordless mowers and cordless handheld outdoor equipment. Our range of 19 cordless RYOBI mowers is leading the revolution from the legacy petrol market to our environmentally friendly lithium cordless technology. In 2020, we began building a state-of-the-art manufacturing operation in the USA to produce cordless mowers and support the extensive growth of the RYOBI Outdoor cordless platforms. The RYOBI 40V system now contains 52 innovative products that deliver petrol-like power, from the quiet WHISPER series blowers, to string trimmers, hedge trimmers, chain saws, sprayers, edgers, and many more.

Floorcare

Our Floorcare business accounted for 11.0% of TTI total sales, with sales increasing 23.6% to US$1.1 billion, while generating US$24.6 million of operating profit, up 138.0% from 2019. These results reflect our disciplined efforts to transition our floorcare business from legacy products to our key strategic categories of cordless and carpet washing. In addition, our exit from underperforming geographies and expansion of in-house manufacturing contributed to our strong performance.

We delivered double-digit growth in carpet washing led by the success of our HOOVER POWERDASH, HOOVER SMARTWASH and VAX PLATINUM carpet cleaning product lines. Our success in carpet washing is also driving excellent sales growth in our after-market carpet cleaning formula ranges.

In 2020, our cordless ONEPWR system gained encouraging traction in both the HOOVER and VAX brands. The ONEPWR cordless family now includes 13 products on the same universal battery platform.

The Global Floorcare business is now well positioned to deliver consistently improving sales and financial performance in the future.

DIVIDEND

The Directors have recommended a final dividend of HK82.00 cents (approximately US10.55 cents) per share with a total of approximately US$193,404,000 for the year ended December 31, 2020 (2019: HK58.00 cents (approximately US7.46 cents)) payable to the Company's shareholders whose names appear on the register of members of the Company on May 24, 2021. Subject to the approval by the shareholders at the forthcoming annual general meeting of the Company, the proposed final dividend is expected to be paid on or about June 18, 2021. This payment, together with the interim dividend of HK53.00 cents (approximately US6.82 cents) per share (2019: HK45.00 cents (approximately US5.79 cents)) paid on September 18, 2020, makes a total payment of HK135.00 cents (approximately US17.37 cents) per share for 2020 (2019: HK103.00 cents (approximately US13.26 cents)).

NOTES TO THE CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

1. Basis of Preparation and Accounting Policies

The consolidated financial statements have been prepared on the historical cost basis except for certain financial instruments that are measured at fair value, as appropriate.

The consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with Hong Kong Financial Reporting Standards ("HKFRSs").

The financial information relating to the years ended December 31, 2020 and 2019 included in this preliminary announcement of annual results 2020 do not constitute the Company's statutory annual consolidated financial statements for those years but are derived from those financial statements. Further information relating to these statutory financial statements required to be disclosed in accordance with section 436 of the Companies Ordinance (Cap. 622) is as follows:

  • The Company has delivered the financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2019 to the Registrar of Companies as required by section 662(3) of, and Part 3 of Schedule 6 to, the Companies Ordinance (Cap. 622) and will deliver the financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2020 in due course.

  • The Company's auditor has reported on the financial statements of the Group for both years. The auditor's reports were unqualified; did not include a reference to any matters to which the auditor drew attention by way of emphasis without qualifying its reports; and did not contain a statement under sections 406(2), 407(2) or (3) of the Companies Ordinance (Cap. 622).

Application of Amendments to Hong Kong Financial Reporting Standards ("HKFRSs")

Amendments to HKFRSs that are mandatorily effective for the current year

In the current year, the Group has applied the Amendments to References to the Conceptual Framework in HKFRS Standards and the following amendments to HKFRSs issued by the Hong Kong Institute of Certified Public Accountants ("HKICPA") for the first time, which are mandatorily effective for the annual period beginning on or after January 1, 2020 for the preparation of the consolidated financial statements:

Amendments to HKAS 1 and HKAS 8

Definition of Material

Amendments to HKFRS 3

Definition of a Business

Amendments to HKFRS 9, HKAS 39 and HKFRS 7

Interest Rate Benchmark Reform

Except as described below, the application of the Amendments to References to the Conceptual Framework in HKFRS Standards and the amendments to HKFRSs in the current year had no material impact on the Group's financial position and performance for the current and prior years and/or on the disclosures set out in these consolidated financial statements.

Impact on application of Amendments to HKAS 1 and HKAS 8 Definition of Material

The Group has applied the Amendments to HKAS 1 and HKAS 8 for the first time in the current year. The amendments provide a new definition of material that states "information is material if omitting, misstating or obscuring it could reasonably be expected to influence decisions that the primary users of general purpose financial statements make on the basis of those financial statements, which provide financial information about a specific reporting entity." The amendments also clarify that materiality depends on the nature or magnitude of information, either individually or in combination with other information, in the context of the financial statements taken as a whole.

The application of the amendments in the current year had no impact on the consolidated financial statements.

Impacts on application of Amendments to HKFRS 9, HKAS 39 and HKFRS 7 Interest Rate Benchmark Reform

The Group has applied the amendments for the first time in the current year. The amendments modify specific hedge accounting requirements to allow hedge accounting to continue for affected hedges during the period of uncertainty before the hedged items or hedging instruments affected by the current interest rate benchmarks are amended as a result of the on-going interest rate benchmark reform. The amendments are relevant to the Group given that it applies hedge accounting to its benchmark interest rate exposures.

The amendments also introduce new disclosure requirements to IFRS 7 for hedging relationships that are subject to the exceptions introduced by the amendments to IFRS 9.

The Group has floating rate debt, linked to London Interbank Offered Rate ("LIBOR"), which it cash flow hedges using cross-currency interest rate swaps. The amendments permit continuation of hedge accounting even though there is uncertainty about the timing and amount of the hedged cash flows due to the interest rate benchmark reforms.

The Group retained the cumulative gain or loss in the cash flow hedge reserve for designated cash flow hedges that are subject to interest rate benchmark reforms even though there is uncertainty arising from the interest rate benchmark reform with respect to the timing and amount of the cash flows of the hedged items. Should the Group consider the hedged future cash flows are no longer expected to occur due to reasons other than interest rate benchmark reform, the cumulative gain or loss will be immediately reclassified to profit or loss.

The application of the amendments has no impact on the Group's consolidated financial statements.

The Group has not early applied the following new and amendments to HKFRSs that have been issued but are not yet effective:

Except for the amendments to HKFRSs mentioned below, the directors of the Company anticipate that the application of all other new and amendments to HKFRSs will have no material impact on the consolidated financial statements in the foreseeable future.

Amendments to HKFRS 9, HKAS 39 and HKFRS 7, HKFRS 4 and HKFRS 16 Interest Rate

Benchmark Reform - Phase 2

Amendments to HKFRS 9, HKAS 39, HKFRS 7, HKFRS 4 and HKFRS 16 Interest Rate Benchmark Reform - Phase 2 relate to the modification of financial assets, financial liabilities and lease liabilities, specific hedge accounting requirements and disclosure requirements applying HKFRS 7 Financial Instruments: Disclosures to accompany the amendments regarding modifications and hedge accounting.

  • Modification of financial assets, financial liabilities and lease liabilities. A practical expedient is introduced for modifications required by the reform (modifications required as a direct consequence of the interest rate benchmark reform and made on an economically equivalent basis). These modifications are accounted for by updating the effective interest rate. All other modifications are accounted for using the current HKFRSs requirements. A similar practical expedient is proposed for lessee accounting applying HKFRS 16;

  • Hedge accounting requirements. Under the amendments, hedge accounting is not discontinued solely because of the interest rate benchmark reform. Hedging relationships (and related documentation) are required to be amended to reflect modifications to the hedged item, hedging instrument and hedged risk. Amended hedging relationships should meet all qualifying criteria to apply hedge accounting, including effectiveness requirements; and

  • Disclosures. The amendments require disclosures in order to allow users to understand the nature and extent of risks arising from the interest rate benchmark reform to which the Group is exposed to and how the entity manages those risks as well as the entity's progress in transitioning from interbank offered rates to alternative benchmark rates, and how the entity is managing this transition.

As at December 31, 2020, the Group had several LIBOR bank loans which will be subject to the interest rate benchmark reform. The Group expects no significant gains or losses should the interest rate benchmark for these loans change and the Group is in the process of assessing the impact of the application which may have a potential impact on the hedge accounting and related disclosures made in the consolidated financial statements of the Group resulting from the reform on application of the amendments.

Amendments to HKAS 1 Classification of Liabilities as Current or Non-current and related amendments to Hong Kong Interpretation 5 (2020)

The amendments provide clarification and additional guidance on the assessment of right to defer settlement for at least twelve months from reporting date for classification of liabilities as current or non-current, which:

  • specify that the classification of liabilities as current or non-current should be based on rights that are in existence at the end of the reporting period. Specifically, the amendments clarify that:

    • (i) the classification should not be affected by management intentions or expectations to settle the liability within 12 months; and

    • (ii) if the right is conditional on the compliance with covenants, the right exists if the conditions are met at the end of the reporting period, even if the lender does not test compliance until a later date.

  • clarify that if a liability has terms that could, at the option of the counterparty, result in its settlement by the transfer of the entity's own equity instruments, these terms do not affect its classification as current or non-current only if the entity recognizes the option separately as an equity instrument applying HKAS 32 Financial Instruments: Presentation.

In addition, Hong Kong Interpretation 5 was revised as a consequence of the Amendments to HKAS 1 to align the corresponding wordings with no change in conclusion.

Based on the Group's outstanding liabilities as at December 31, 2020, the application of the amendments will not result in a reclassification of the Group's liabilities.
