“AGCO delivered record first quarter sales and earnings as healthy farm economics continue to support robust global demand,” stated Eric Hansotia, AGCO’s Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer. “Despite this elevated demand, supply chain constraints compounded by the impacts of the war in Ukraine continue to negatively influence our operations. Our results reflect substantial price increases to offset rising material costs, higher logistics expenses, and other manufacturing inefficiencies. Favorable farm fundamentals accompanied by heightened interest in AGCO’s precision ag solutions are supporting healthy order boards that remain well ahead of last year’s levels. We remain focused on minimizing the impact of supply chain disruptions and inflationary cost pressures to deliver strong full-year sales and earnings growth. In addition, our increased investments in premium technology, sustainable smart farming solutions and enhanced digital capabilities support our farmer-first strategy and position us for future growth.”

“Crop prices are near record levels and are helping farmers offset inflationary pressures from higher fuel, fertilizer and other input costs. The resulting elevated levels of farm income are expected to extend strong end-market demand,” stated Mr. Hansotia.

“Supply chain constraints limited global industry production and the corresponding retail sales in the first quarter,” continued Mr. Hansotia. “North American industry retail tractor sales were down approximately 1% in the first three months of 2022 compared to last year. Lower sales of smaller tractors, which declined from record levels in 2021, were partially offset by increased sales of high horsepower units. Despite continued strong demand, retail sales of large row-crop agricultural equipment was 11% below the first quarter of 2021 due to supply chain constraints, which limited deliveries. Industry retail tractor sales in Western Europe, which also were restricted by supply chain challenges, decreased approximately 6% in the first three months of 2022 compared to strong levels in the first quarter of 2021. Farmer sentiment has been negatively impacted by the war in Ukraine, as well as input cost inflation, but forecasts for healthy farm income in Western Europe are expected to support solid retail demand for equipment throughout 2022. In South America, industry sales increased during the first three months of 2022 in both Brazil and Argentina. Strong crop production levels as well as elevated commodity prices are supporting positive economic conditions for farmers who continue to replace an aged fleet. Despite the slower than expected start in North America and Europe, we continue to expect full year 2022 industry retail sales to be above 2021 levels in all major regions.”

North America

Net sales in the North American region grew 15.0% in the first three months of 2022 compared to the same period of 2021, excluding the negative impact of currency translation. The increase resulted from the impact of pricing to mitigate inflationary cost pressures, along with increased sales of tractors as well as grain and protein equipment, partially offset by lower sales of Precision Planting products. Income from operations for the first three months of 2022 decreased approximately $20.1 million compared to the same period in 2021. A weaker sales mix primarily caused by chip-related supply constraints related to the Precision Planting business as well as higher operating expenses resulted in lower first quarter operating income.

South America

AGCO’s South American net sales increased 41.8% in the first three months of 2022 compared to the same period of 2021, excluding the impact of favorable currency translation. Sales grew strongly across all markets, driven by the continued strength in industry demand and positive pricing impacts. Income from operations in the first three months of 2022 increased by approximately $29.9 million compared to the same period in 2021 and operating margins reached 12.9%. The improved South America results reflect the benefit of higher sales and production, a favorable sales mix, and pricing that offset material cost inflation.

Europe/Middle East

Net sales in Europe/Middle East increased 15.0% in the first three months of 2022 compared to the same period in 2021, excluding unfavorable currency translation impacts. Higher sales of tractors and replacement parts along with favorable pricing impacts resulted in the increase. Income from operations grew approximately $18.0 million in the first three months of 2022, compared to the same period in 2021, while operating margins expanded to 11.6%. The improvements were the result of higher net sales and production volumes.

Asia/Pacific/Africa

AGCO’s Asia/Pacific/Africa net sales increased 17.5%, excluding the negative impact of currency translation, in the first three months of 2022 compared to the same period in 2021. Higher sales in Australia, Japan and Africa were partially offset by lower sales in China. Income from operations improved by approximately $13.0 million in the first three months of 2022 and operating margins expanded by approximately 4.5% compared to the same period in 2021 due to higher sales and a richer sales mix.

Outlook

The health, safety and well-being of all AGCO employees, dealers and farmer customers continue to be AGCO’s top priority. The ability of the Company’s supply chain to deliver parts and components on schedule is currently difficult to predict. The following outlook is based on AGCO’s current estimates of component deliveries. AGCO’s results will be impacted if the actual supply chain delivery performance differs from these estimates.

AGCO’s net sales for 2022 are expected to range from $12.5 billion to $12.7 billion, reflecting increased sales volumes and pricing partially offset by negative foreign currency translation. Gross and operating margins are projected to improve from 2021 levels, reflecting the impact of higher sales and production volumes as well as favorable pricing to offset material and labor cost inflation. These improvements are planned to fund increases in engineering and other technology investments to support AGCO’s precision ag and digital initiatives. Based on these assumptions, 2022 earnings per share are targeted in a range from $11.70 to $11.90.

Safe Harbor Statement

Statements that are not historical facts, including the projections of earnings per share, production levels, sales, industry demand, market conditions, commodity prices, currency translation, farm income levels, margin levels, strategy, 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.

  • COVID-19 has negatively impacted our business, initially through closures, higher absentee rates, and reduced production at both our plants and the plants that supply us with parts and components, and more recently through supply chain challenges, including the inability of some of our suppliers to meet demand and logistics and transportation-related companies to deliver products in a timely manner. In addition, we have had to incur various costs related to preventing the spread of COVID-19, including changes to our factories and other facilities and those related to enabling remote work. We expect COVID-19 to continue to impact our business, although the manner and extent to which it impacts us will depend on future developments, including the duration of the pandemic, the timing, distribution and impact of vaccinations, and possible mutations of the virus that are more contagious or resistant to current vaccines. Measures taken by governments around the world, as well as businesses, including us, and the general public in order to limit the spread of COVID-19 will impact our business as well. These measures have included travel bans and restrictions, quarantines, shelter in place orders, curfews, business and government office closures, increased border controls or closures, port closures and transportation restrictions. The impacts of COVID-19 and such measures could include decreases in demand for our products, factory closures, increased absentee rates, reduced production, incurrence of additional costs due to the adherence to cleaning requirements and social distancing guidelines and increased costs of labor, parts and components and shipping, incurrence of impairment charges, slower collections and larger write-offs of accounts receivable, among other changes.
  • 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 less than optimal; 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 require 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 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 be subject to significant claims, penalties and damages.
  • Attacks through ransomware and other cyber-attacks are rapidly increasing. While we have implemented the safeguards that we believe are reasonable, we always will be subject to the risk that one of these attacks is successful and disrupts or damages our business.
  • 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. Recently suppliers of several key parts and components have not been able to meet our demand and we have had to decrease our production. It is unclear when the supply chain issues will be restored or what the ultimate impact on production, and consequently sales, will be.
  • Although as a general proposition our business has not experienced significant inflation in many years, beginning in the second half of 2021 we experienced significant inflation in a range of costs, including for parts and components, shipping, and energy. While we have been able to pass along most of those costs through increased prices, there can be no assurance that we will be able to continue to do so. If we are not, it will adversely impact our performance.
  • 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 performance 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.
  • We have interests in two joint ventures that operate in Russia. We are able to continue our role in those joint ventures as a result of a time-limited general license from the Office of Foreign Assets Control of the U.S. Department of Treasury that, following its most recent extension on April 25, 2022, expires on May 25, 2022. In due course, we may need to dispose of our investments, and there could be other consequences that we do not foresee.

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, 2021. AGCO disclaims any obligation to update any forward-looking statements except as required by law.

8. 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, 2022 and 2021 are as follows (in millions):
