ALTRA INDUSTRIAL MOTION CORP.
Notes to Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Interim Financial Statements
Amounts in thousands, unless otherwise noted


1. Organization and Nature of Operations
Description of Business
Headquartered in Braintree, Massachusetts, Altra Industrial Motion Corp. (the “Company”) is a leading multi-national designer, producer and marketer of a wide range of electro-mechanical power transmission products. The Company brings together strong brands covering over 42 product lines with production facilities in twelve countries. Altra’s leading brands include Ameridrives Couplings, Bauer Gear Motor, Bibby Turboflex, Boston Gear, Delroyd Worm Gear, Formsprag Clutch, Guardian Couplings, Huco, Industrial Clutch, Inertia Dynamics, Kilian Manufacturing, Lamiflex Couplings, Marland Clutch, Matrix, Nuttall Gear, Stieber Clutch, Svendborg Brakes, TB Wood’s, Twiflex, Warner Electric, Warner Linear, and Wichita Clutch.

2. Basis of Presentation
The Company’s unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with the instructions to Form 10-Q and do not include all of the information and note disclosures required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. These statements should be read in conjunction with the financial statements and notes thereto included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2014. In the opinion of management, the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements include all adjustments, consisting of normal recurring adjustments, necessary to present fairly the Company’s financial position for the interim periods presented, and cash flows for the interim periods presented. The results are not necessarily indicative of future results. The Company considers events or transactions that occur after the balance sheet date but before the financial statements are issued to provide additional evidence relative to certain estimates or to identify matters that require additional disclosure.
3. Fair Value of Financial Instruments
The carrying values of financial instruments, including accounts receivable, cash equivalents, accounts payable, and other accrued liabilities approximate fair value. Debt under the Company’s Credit Agreement including a Term Loan Facility and a Revolving Credit Facility approximate the fair values due to the variable rate nature at current market rates.
The carrying amount of the 2.75% Convertible Notes (the “Convertible Notes”) was $85 million at both September 30, 2015 and December 31, 2014. The estimated fair value of the Convertible Notes at September 30, 2015 and December 31, 2014 was $88.4 million and $99.0 million, respectively, based on inputs other than quoted prices that are observable for the Convertible Notes (level 2).
Included in cash and cash equivalents at September 30, 2015 and December 31, 2014 are money market fund investments of $0.3 million, which are reported at fair value based on quoted market prices for such investments (level 1).
The estimated fair value of the Company’s interest rate swap agreement with certain financial institutions (“Interest Rate Swap”) as of September 30, 2015 and December 31, 2014 was $(0.1) million and $0.1 million, respectively, based on inputs other than quoted prices that are observable for the Interest Rate Swap (level 2). Inputs include present value of fixed and projected floating rate cash flows over the term of the swap contract.

6. Acquisitions
Guardian Couplings
On July 1, 2014, the Company acquired all of the issued and outstanding shares of Guardian Ind., Inc. ("Guardian Couplings") for cash consideration of $17.1 million. This transaction is referred to as the Guardian Acquisition. Guardian Couplings is a manufacturer and supplier of flywheel, motion control and general industrial couplings. The Guardian Acquisition provides the Company with increased product coverage in several core markets, including energy, farm and agriculture, and specialty machinery and is expected to provide synergies with the Company's existing product offerings.
The sellers agreed to provide the Company with a limited set of representations and warranties, including those with respect to outstanding and potential liabilities. Claims for a breach of a representation or warranty are secured by a limited escrow. There is no guarantee that the Company would actually be able to recover all or any portion of the sums payable in connection with such breach.
The purchase price of $17.1 million, excluding acquisition costs of $0.2 million, is in excess of the fair value of net assets acquired by approximately $2.2 million. Current assets acquired, excluding approximately $2.0 million in cash, totaled approximately $4.0 million, non-current assets totaled approximately $9.2 million and current liabilities totaled approximately $0.3 million.
The excess of the purchase price over the fair value of the net assets acquired was recorded as goodwill. This goodwill is deductible for income tax purposes over a period of 15 years. The Company expects to develop synergies, such as lower cost country sourcing and global procurement.
The non-current assets acquired included the following intangible assets:
Customer relationships, subject to amortization
$
7,450

Trade names and trademarks, not subject to amortization
650

Total intangible assets
$
8,100

Customer relationships will be amortized on a straight-line basis over their estimated useful lives of 14 years, which represents the anticipated period over which the Company estimates it will benefit from the acquired assets.
Pro forma Results of Operations
The closing date of the Guardian Acquisition was July 1, 2014. The Company's unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements reflect the results of the operations of the acquired entities for the periods commencing after the acquisition dates.    
The following table sets forth the unaudited pro forma results of operations of the Company for the year to date period ended September 30, 2014 as if the Company had acquired Guardian Couplings on January 1, 2014. The pro forma information contains the actual operating results of the Company, including Guardian Couplings, adjusted to include the pro forma impact of (i) additional expense as a result of the estimated amortization of identifiable intangible assets; and (ii) additional interest expense for borrowings under the Credit Agreement associated with the Guardian Acquisition. These pro forma amounts do not purport to be indicative of the results that would have actually been obtained if the acquisition occurred at the beginning of the period or that may be obtained in the future.

9. Warranty Costs
The contractual warranty period of the Company's products generally ranges from three months to two years with certain warranties extending for longer periods. Estimated expenses related to product warranties are accrued at the time products are sold to customers and are recorded in accruals and other current liabilities on the condensed consolidated balance sheet. Estimates are established using historical information as to the nature, frequency and average costs of warranty claims. Changes in the carrying amount of accrued product warranty costs for each of the year to date periods ended September 30, 2015 and September 30, 2014 are as follows:

Credit Agreement
In December 2013, the Company entered into an Amended and Restated Credit Agreement (the “Credit Agreement”). The Credit Agreement amends and restates the Company’s former credit agreement, dated November 20, 2012 (the “Former Credit Agreement”). Pursuant to the Former Credit Agreement, the former lenders made available to the Company an initial term loan facility of $100,000,000 and an initial revolving credit facility of $200,000,000.    Pursuant to the Credit Agreement, the lenders made an additional term loan of €50,000,000 (the “Additional Term Loan”) to Altra Industrial Motion Netherlands B.V. The Credit Agreement kept in effect the balance (approximately $94,375,000) of the existing term loan facility (the “Initial Term Loan”) made to the domestic borrowers under the Former Credit Agreement (collectively, the two term loans are referred to as the “Term Loan Facility”), as well as the revolving credit facility of $200,000,000 made under the Former Credit Agreement (the “Revolving Credit Facility”). The Credit Agreement continues, even after the making of the Additional Term Loan, to provide for a possible expansion of the credit facilities by an additional $150,000,000, which can be allocated as additional term loans and/or additional revolving credit loans. The amounts available under the Term Loan Facility were used,

14

Table of Contents

Notes to Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Interim Financial Statements
Amounts in thousands, unless otherwise noted

and amounts available under the Revolving Credit Facility can be used, for general corporate purposes, including acquisitions, and to repay existing indebtedness. The stated maturity of these credit facilities is December 6, 2018, and there are scheduled quarterly principal payments due on the outstanding amount of the Term Loan Facility. With respect to the Initial Term Loan, the scheduled quarterly principal payments due on the outstanding amount have been reset to amortize in accordance with the new December 6, 2018 maturity date. The previous maturity of the Revolving Credit Facility and the Initial Term Loan was November 20, 2017.

The amounts available under the Revolving Credit Facility may be drawn upon in accordance with the terms of the Credit Agreement. All amounts outstanding under the credit facilities are due on the stated maturity or such earlier time, if any, required under the Credit Agreement. The amounts owed under either of the credit facilities may be prepaid at any time, subject to usual notification and breakage payment provisions. Interest on the amounts outstanding under the credit facilities is calculated using either an ABR Rate or Eurodollar Rate, plus the applicable margin. The applicable margins for Eurodollar Loans are between 1.375% to 1.875%, and for ABR Loans are between 0.375% and 0.875%. The amounts of the margins are calculated based on either a consolidated total net leverage ratio (as defined in the Credit Agreement), or the then applicable credit rating(s) of the Company’s debt if and then to the extent as provided in the Credit Agreement. A portion of the Revolving Credit Facility may also be used for the issuance of letters of credit, and a portion of the amount of the Revolving Credit Facility is available for borrowings in certain agreed upon foreign currencies.

On August 13, 2015, the Company entered into a First Amendment to the Credit Agreement which revised the definition of a “Change in Control” set forth in the Credit Agreement.
As of September 30, 2015 and December 31, 2014, the Company had $37.0 million and $40.0 million outstanding on our Revolving Credit Facility, respectively. As of September 30, 2015 and December 31, 2014, the Company had $8.0 million and $11.0 million in letters of credit outstanding, respectively. The Company had $155.0 million and $149.0 million available under the Revolving Credit Facility at September 30, 2015 and December 31, 2014, respectively.
The Credit Agreement contains various affirmative and negative covenants and restrictions, which among other things, will require the Company and certain of its subsidiaries to provide certain financial reports to the Lenders, require the Company to maintain certain financial covenants relating to consolidated leverage and interest coverage, limit maximum annual capital expenditures, and limit the ability of the Company and its subsidiaries to incur or guarantee additional indebtedness, pay dividends or make other equity distributions, purchase or redeem capital stock or debt stock or debt, make certain investments, sell assets, engage in certain transactions, and effect a consolidation or merger. The Credit Agreement also contains customary events of default.
On October 22, 2015, the Company entered into a Second Amended and Restated Credit Agreement. For more information on the Company’s Second Amended and Restated Credit Agreement see Note 16.
 
Pledge and Security Agreement; Trademark Security Agreement; Patent Security Agreement.
Pursuant to an Omnibus Reaffirmation and Ratification of Collateral Documents entered into on December 6, 2013 in connection with the Credit Agreement by and among the Company, the Loan Parties and the Administrative Agent (the “Ratification Agreement”), the Loan Parties (exclusive of the foreign subsidiary Borrower) have reaffirmed their obligations to the Lenders under the Pledge and Security Agreement. The Credit Agreement provides that the obligation to grant the security interest can cease upon the obtaining of certain corporate family credit ratings for the Company, but the obligation to grant a security interest is subject to subsequent reinstatement if the ratings are not maintained as provided in the Credit Agreement.
Pursuant to the Ratification Agreement, the Loan Parties (other than the foregoing subsidiary Borrower) have also reaffirmed their obligations under each of the Patent Security Agreement and a Trademark Security Agreement.
The Loan Parties and the Administrative Agent entered into a Pledge and Security Agreement (the “Pledge and Security Agreement”), pursuant to which each Loan Party pledges, assigns and grants to the Administrative Agent, on behalf of and for the ratable benefit of the Lenders, a security interest in all of its right, title and interest in, to and under all personal property, whether now owned by or owing to, or after acquired by or arising in favor of such Loan Party (including under any trade name or derivations), and whether owned or consigned by or to, or leased from or to, such Loan Party, and regardless of where located, except for specific excluded personal property identified in the Pledge and Security Agreement (collectively, the

“Collateral”). Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Collateral does not include, among other items, more than 65% of the capital stock of the first tier foreign subsidiaries of the Company. The Pledge and Security Agreement contains other customary representations, warranties and covenants of the parties. The Credit Agreement provides that the obligation to grant the security interest can cease upon the obtaining of certain corporate family ratings for the Company, but the obligation to grant a security interest is subject to subsequent reinstatement if the ratings are not maintained as provided in the Credit Agreement.
In connection with the Pledge and Security Agreement, certain of the Loan Parties delivered a Patent Security Agreement and a Trademark Security Agreement in favor of the Administrative Agent pursuant to which each of the Loan Parties signatory thereto pledges, assigns and grants to the Administrative Agent, on behalf of and for the ratable benefit of the Lenders, a security interest in all of its right, title and interest in, to and under all registered patents, patent applications, registered trademarks and trademark applications owned by such Loan Parties.
Convertible Senior Notes
In March 2011, the Company issued the Convertible Notes due March 1, 2031. The Convertible Notes are guaranteed by the Company’s U.S. domestic subsidiaries. Interest on the Convertible Notes is payable semi-annually in arrears, on March 1 and September 1 of each year, commencing on September 1, 2011 at an annual rate of 2.75%. Proceeds from the offering were $81.3 million, net of fees and expenses that were capitalized. The proceeds from the offering were used to fund the Bauer Acquisition, as well as bolster the Company’s cash position.
The Convertible Notes will mature on March 1, 2031, unless earlier redeemed, repurchased by the Company or converted, and are convertible into cash or shares, or a combination thereof, at the Company’s election. The Convertible Notes are convertible into shares of the Company’s common stock based on an initial conversion rate, subject to adjustment, of 36.0985 shares per $1,000 principal amount of notes (which represents an initial conversion price of approximately $27.70 per share of our common stock), in certain circumstances. The conversion price at September 30, 2015 is $26.29 per share. Prior to March 1, 2030, the Convertible Notes are convertible only in the following circumstances: (1) during any fiscal quarter commencing after June 30, 2011 if the last reported sale price of the Company’s common stock is greater than or equal to 130% of the applicable conversion price for at least 20 trading days in the period of 30 consecutive trading days ending on the last trading day of the preceding fiscal quarter; (2) during the 5 business day period after any 10 consecutive trading day period (the “measurement period”) in which the trading price per $1,000 principal amount of notes for each trading day in the measurement period was less than 97% of the product of the last reported sale price of the Company’s common stock and the conversion rate on such trading day; (3) if the Convertible Notes have been called for redemption; or (4) upon the occurrence of specified corporate transactions. On or after March 1, 2030, and ending at the close of business on the second business day immediately preceding the maturity date, holders may convert their Convertible Notes at any time, regardless of the foregoing circumstances. Upon conversion, the Company will pay or deliver, as the case may be, cash, shares of common stock, or a combination thereof, at the Company’s election. The Company intends to settle the principal amount in cash and any additional amounts in shares of stock.
If a fundamental change occurs, the Convertible Notes are redeemable at a price equal to 100% of the principal amount of the notes to be repurchased, plus accrued and unpaid interest (including contingent interest and additional interest, if any) to, but excluding, the repurchase date. The Convertible Notes are also redeemable on each of March 1, 2018March 1, 2021, and March 1, 2026 for cash at a price equal to 100% of the principal amount of the notes to be repurchased, plus accrued and unpaid interest (including contingent interest and additional interest, if any) to, but excluding, the option repurchase date.
As of March 1, 2015, the Company may call all or part of the Convertible Notes at a redemption price equal to 100% of the principal amount of the Convertible Notes to be redeemed, plus accrued and unpaid interest to, but excluding, the redemption date, plus a “make-whole premium” payment in cash, shares of the Company’s common stock, or combination thereof, at the Company’s option, equal to the sum of the present values of the remaining scheduled payments of interest on the Convertible Notes to be redeemed through March 1, 2018 to, but excluding, the redemption date, if the last reported sale price of the Company’s common stock for 20 or more trading days in a period of 30 consecutive trading days ending on the trading day prior to the date the Company provides notice of redemption exceeds 130% of the conversion price in effect on each such trading day. On or after March 1, 2018, the Company may redeem for cash all or a portion of the notes at a redemption price of 100% of the principle amount of the Convertible Notes to be redeemed, plus accrued and unpaid interest (including contingent and additional interest, if any) to, but not including, the redemption date.

The Company separately accounted for the debt and equity components of the Convertible Notes to reflect the issuer’s non-convertible debt borrowing rate, which interest costs are to be recognized in subsequent periods. The note payable principal balance at the date of issuance of $85.0 million was bifurcated into a debt component of $60.5 million and an equity component of $24.5 million. The difference between the note payable principal balance and the value of the debt component is being accreted to interest expense over the term of the notes. The debt component was recognized at the present value of associated cash flows discounted using a 8.25% discount rate, the borrowing rate at the date of issuance for a similar debt instrument without a conversion feature. The Company paid approximately $3.7 million of issuance costs associated with the Convertible Notes. The Company recorded $1.0 million of debt issuance costs as an offset to additional paid-in capital. The balance of $2.7 million of debt issuance costs is classified as other non-current assets and will be amortized over the term of the notes using the effective interest method.
Because the last reported sale price of the Company's common stock did not exceed 130% of the current conversion price, which was $26.29, for at least 20 of the last 30 consecutive trading days in the fiscal quarter ended September 30, 2015, the Convertible Notes are not convertible at the election of the holders of the Convertible Notes at any time during the fiscal quarter ending December 31, 2015. The future convertibility will be monitored at each quarterly reporting date and will be analyzed dependent upon market prices of the Company's common stock during the prescribed measurement periods.
The carrying amount of the principal amount of the liability component, the unamortized discount, and the net carrying amount are as follows as of September 30, 2015:

11. Stockholders’ Equity
Stock-Based Compensation
The Company's 2004 Equity Incentive Plan (the “2004 Plan”) permitted the grant of various forms of stock based compensation to our officers and senior level employees. The 2004 Plan expired in 2014 and, upon expiration, there were 750,576 shares subject to outstanding awards under the 2004 Plan. The 2014 Omnibus Incentive Plan (the “2014 Plan”) was approved by the Company's shareholders at its 2014 annual meeting. The 2014 Plan provides for various forms of stock based compensation to our directors, executive personnel and other key employees and consultants. Under the 2014 Plan, the total number of shares of common stock available for delivery pursuant to the grant of awards (“Awards”) was originally 750,000 . Shares of our common stock subject to Awards awarded under the 2004 Plan and outstanding as of the effective date of the 2014 Plan (except for substitute awards) that terminate without being exercised, expire, are forfeited or canceled, are exchanged for Awards that did not involve shares of common stock, are not issued on the stock settlement of a stock appreciation right, are withheld by the Company or tendered by a participant (either actually or by attestation) to pay an option exercise price or to pay the withholding tax on any Award, or are settled in cash in lieu of shares will again be available for Awards under the 2014 Plan.

occurrence of certain events. Common stock awarded under the 2014 Plan is generally subject to restrictions on transfer, repurchase rights, and other limitations and rights as set forth in the applicable award agreements. The shares are valued based on the share price on the date of grant.
The 2014 Plan permits the Company to grant, among other things, restricted stock, restricted stock units, and performance share awards to key employees and other persons who make significant contributions to the success of the Company. The restrictions and vesting schedule for restricted stock granted under the 2014 Plan are determined by the Personnel and Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors.
Stock-based compensation expense recorded (in selling, general and administrative expense) during the year to date periods ended September 30, 2015 and September 30, 2014, was $3.2 million and $2.6 million, respectively. Stock-based compensation expense recorded during the quarters ended September 30, 2015 and September 30, 2014, was $1.0 million and $0.8 million, respectively. The Company recognizes stock-based compensation expense on a straight-line basis for the shares vesting ratably under the plan and uses the graded-vesting method of recognizing stock-based compensation expense for the performance share awards based on the probability of the specific performance metrics being achieved over the requisite service period.

The following table sets forth the activity of the Company’s restricted stock and performance share grants in the year to date period ended September 30, 2015:

Total remaining unrecognized compensation cost was $4.6 million as of September 30, 2015, which will be recognized over a weighted average remaining period of 3 years. The fair market value of the shares for which the restrictions have lapsed during the year to date period ended September 30, 2015 was $3.6 million. Restricted shares granted are valued based on the fair market value of the stock on the date of grant.

Share Repurchase Program

In May 2014, our board of directors approved a new share repurchase program authorizing the buyback of up to $50.0 million of the Company's common stock. The Company expects to purchase shares on the open market, through block trades, in privately negotiated transactions, in compliance with SEC Rule 10b-18 (including through Rule 10b5-1 plans), or in any other appropriate manner. The timing of the shares repurchased will be at the discretion of management and will depend on a number of factors, including price, market conditions and regulatory requirements. Shares acquired through the repurchase program will be retired. The Company retains the right to limit, terminate or extend the share repurchase program at any time without prior notice.

For the year to date period ended September 30, 2015, the Company repurchased 547,780 shares of common stock at an average purchase price of $26.08 per share.  As of September 30, 2015, up to $18.1 million was available to purchase additional shares under the repurchase program, which expires on December 31, 2016. The Company expects to fund any further repurchases of its common stock through a combination of cash on hand and cash generated by operations.
 
Dividends
The Company declared a dividend of $0.15 per share of common stock related to the quarter ended September 30, 2015. The dividend for the quarter ended September 30, 2015 was accrued in the balance sheet at September 30, 2015. The Company declared and paid a cash dividend of $0.12 per share of common stock for the quarter ended September 30, 2014

which was accrued at September 30, 2014. Future declarations of quarterly cash dividends are subject to approval by the Board of Directors and to the Board’s continuing determination that the declaration of dividends are in the best interest of the Company’s stockholders and are in compliance with all laws and agreements of the Company applicable to the declaration and payment of cash dividends.
12. Derivative Financial Instruments
Interest Rate Swap
In April 2013, the Company entered into an interest rate swap agreement designed to fix the variable interest rate payable on a portion of its outstanding borrowings, currently $75.0 million, under the Credit Agreement, at 0.626% exclusive of the margin under the Former Credit Agreement. The interest rate swap agreement and its terms are also applicable to the variable interest rate borrowings under the current Credit Agreement.
The interest rate swap agreement was designed to manage exposure to interest rates on the Company’s variable rate indebtedness. The Company recognizes all derivatives on its balance sheet at fair value. The Company has designated its interest rate swap agreement, which is forward-dated, as a cash flow hedge. Changes in the fair value of the swap are recognized in other comprehensive income until the hedged items are recognized in earnings. Hedge ineffectiveness, if any, associated with the swap will be reported by the Company in interest expense. There was no ineffectiveness associated with the swap during the quarter ended September 30, 2015, nor was any amount excluded from ineffectiveness testing for the period.
The estimated fair value of the Company’s interest rate swap agreement with certain financial institutions (“Interest Rate Swap”) was based on inputs other than quoted prices that are observable for the Interest Rate Swap (level 2). Inputs include present value of fixed and projected floating rate cash flows over the term of the swap contract.
The fair value of the swap recognized in other non-current assets, net and in other comprehensive income (loss) is as follows:

13. Restructuring
In the quarter ended September 30, 2014, the Company adopted a restructuring plan (“2014 Altra Plan”) as a result of weak demand in Europe and to make certain adjustments to its existing sales force to reflect the Company's expanding global footprint. The actions taken pursuant to the 2014 Altra Plan included reducing headcount and limiting discretionary spending to improve profitability.
In the quarter ended March 31, 2015, the Company commenced a restructuring plan (“2015 Altra Plan”) as a result of weak demand in Europe and to make certain adjustments to improve business effectiveness, reduce the number of facilities and streamline the Company's cost structure. The actions taken pursuant to the 2015 Altra Plan initially included reducing headcount and limiting discretionary spending to improve profitability. In addition, during the quarter ended June 30, 2015, the Company initiated the next step of the Plan and incurred certain costs and asset impairments relating to facility consolidations. Those activities continued in the quarter ended September 30, 2015.

The Company currently operates through three business segments that are aligned with key product types and end markets served:


Couplings, Clutches & Brakes.  
Couplings are the interface between two shafts, which enable power to be transmitted from one shaft to the other. Clutches in this segment are devices which use mechanical, hydraulic, pneumatic, or friction type connections to facilitate engaging or disengaging two rotating members. Brakes are combinations of interacting parts that work to slow or stop machinery.  Products in this segment are generally used in heavy industrial applications and energy markets.

Electromagnetic Clutches & Brakes.  
Products in this segment include brakes and clutches that are used to electronically slow, stop, engage or disengage equipment utilizing electromagnetic friction type connections.   Products in this segment are used in industrial and commercial markets including agricultural machinery, material handling, motion control, and turf & garden.

Gearing.

Concentrations
Financial instruments, which are potentially subject to counter party performance and concentrations of credit risk, consist primarily of trade accounts receivable. The Company manages these risks by conducting credit evaluations of customers prior to delivery or commencement of services. When the Company enters into a sales contract, collateral is normally not required from the customer. Payments are typically due within 30 days of billing. An allowance for potential credit losses is

maintained, and losses have historically been within management’s expectations. No customer represented greater than 10% of total sales for each of the quarters ended September 30, 2015 and September 30, 2014.
The Company is also subject to counter party performance risk of loss in the event of non-performance by counterparties to financial instruments, such as cash and investments. Cash and cash equivalents are held by well-established financial institutions and invested in AAA rated mutual funds. The Company is exposed to swap counterparty credit risk with well-established financial institutions.


15. Commitments and Contingencies
General Litigation
The Company is involved in various pending legal proceedings arising out of the ordinary course of business. These proceedings primarily involve commercial claims, product liability claims, personal injury claims, and workers’ compensation claims. None of these legal proceedings are expected to have a material adverse effect on the results of operations, cash flows, or financial condition of the Company. With respect to these proceedings, management believes that the Company will prevail, has adequate insurance coverage or has established appropriate reserves to cover potential liabilities. Any costs that management estimates may be paid related to these proceedings or claims are accrued when the liability is considered probable and the amount can be reasonably estimated. There can be no assurance, however, as to the ultimate outcome of any of these matters, and if all or substantially all of these legal proceedings were to be determined adversely to the Company, there could be a material adverse effect on the results of operations, cash flows, or financial condition of the Company. We have established loss provisions for matters in which losses are probable and can be reasonably estimated. There were no material amounts accrued in the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheets for potential litigation as of September 30, 2015 or December 31, 2014. For matters where a reserve has not been established and for which we believe a loss is reasonably possible, as well as for matters where a reserve has been recorded but for which an exposure to loss in excess of the amount accrued is reasonably possible, we believe that such losses, individually and in the aggregate, will not have a material effect on our consolidated financial statements.
 
The Company also risks exposure to product liability claims in connection with products it has sold and those sold by businesses that the Company acquired. Although in some cases third parties have retained responsibility for product liability claims relating to products manufactured or sold prior to the acquisition of the relevant business and in other cases the persons from whom the Company has acquired a business may be required to indemnify the Company for certain product liability claims subject to certain caps or limitations on indemnification, the Company cannot assure that those third parties will in fact satisfy their obligations with respect to liabilities retained by them or their indemnification obligations. If those third parties become unable to or otherwise do not comply with their respective obligations including indemnity obligations, or if certain product liability claims for which the Company is obligated were not retained by third parties or are not subject to these indemnities, the Company could become subject to significant liabilities or other adverse consequences. Moreover, even in cases where third parties retain responsibility for product liability claims or are required to indemnify the Company, significant claims arising from products that have been acquired could have a material adverse effect on the Company’s ability to realize the benefits from an acquisition, could result in the reduction of the value of goodwill that the Company recorded in connection with an acquisition, or could otherwise have a material adverse effect on the Company’s business, financial condition, or operations.
16. Subsequent Events
    
On October 22, 2015, the Company entered into a Second Amended and Restated Credit Agreement pursuant to which the Company amended its Credit Agreement. The new agreement resulted in a two-year extension of the term of the facility, the elimination of the existing Term Loan Facility, and an increase in total borrowing capacity under the facility to $350.0 million. The applicable margins for Eurodollar Loans and ABR Loans are between 1.25% and 2.00%, 0.25% and 1.00%, respectively. Collateral under the new facility remains substantially the same as under the Company's existing Credit Agreement. The Company expects to incur a non-cash charge of approximately $0.5 million during the quarter ended December 31, 2015 to write-off deferred financing costs in connection with eliminating the Term Loan Facilities under the new agreement.

General

We are a leading global designer, producer and marketer of a wide range of electromechanical power transmission products with a presence in over 70 countries. Our global sales and marketing network includes over 1,000 direct OEM customers and over 3,000 distributor outlets. Our product portfolio includes industrial clutches and brakes, enclosed gear drives, open gearing, couplings, engineered bearing assemblies, linear components, gear motors, and other related products. Our products serve a wide variety of end markets including energy, general industrial, material handling, mining, transportation and turf and garden. We primarily sell our products to a wide range of OEMs and through long-standing relationships with industrial distributors such as Motion Industries, Applied Industrial Technologies, Kaman Industrial Technologies and W.W. Grainger.
Although we were incorporated in Delaware in 2004, much of our current business has its roots with the prior acquisition by Colfax Corporation, or Colfax, of the MPT (mechanical power transmission) group of Zurn Technologies, Inc. in December 1996. Colfax subsequently acquired Industrial Clutch Corp. in May 1997, Nuttall Gear Corp. in July 1997 and the Boston Gear and Delroyd Worm Gear brands in August 1997 as part of Colfax’s acquisition of Imo Industries, Inc. In February 2000, Colfax acquired Warner Electric, Inc., which sold products under the Warner Electric, Formsprag Clutch, Stieber, and Wichita Clutch brands. Colfax formed Power Transmission Holding, LLC or “PTH” in June 2004 to serve as a holding company for all of these power transmission businesses. Boston Gear was established in 1877, Warner Electric, Inc. in 1927, and Wichita Clutch in 1949.

Business Segments
Segments

During the third quarter ended September 30, 2015, the Company realigned its management and reporting structure and corresponding reportable business segments as part of its business simplification efforts. This new structure is better aligned across the Company’s end markets and will better facilitate the Company’s strategic initiatives for growth, procurement and facility consolidation.
The Company currently operates through three business segments that are aligned with key product types and end markets served:

Couplings, Clutches & Brakes.  
Couplings are the interface between two shafts, which enable power to be transmitted from one shaft to the other. Clutches in this segment are devices which use mechanical, hydraulic, pneumatic, or friction type connections to facilitate engaging or disengaging two rotating members. Brakes are combinations of interacting parts that work to slow or stop machinery.  Products in this segment are generally used in heavy industrial applications and energy markets.

Electromagnetic Clutches & Brakes.  
Products in this segment include brakes and clutches that are used to electronically slow, stop, engage or disengage equipment utilizing electromagnetic friction type connections.   Products in this segment are used in industrial and commercial markets including agricultural machinery, material handling, motion control, and turf & garden.

Gearing.    
Gears are utilized to reduce the speed and increase the torque of an electric motor or engine to the level required to drive a particular piece of equipment. Gears produced by the Company are primarily utilized in industrial applications.



The following tables show the percentage of total revenue and segment earnings generated by each of our three segments for the quarters and year to date periods ended September 30, 2015 and 2014:

Business Outlook
Our future financial performance depends, in large part, on conditions in the markets that we serve and on the U.S., European, and global economies in general.
Foreign currency translation continues to have a negative impact on our performance, and several of our end markets were weaker than we anticipated. Performance in the oil & gas, agriculture, mining and metals end markets, which are some of our largest markets, remain challenging and continues to weigh on our performance. We have seen broad based decline in global industrial demand through the first nine months of 2015. Furthermore, we expect the challenges in our agriculture, oil and gas, mining and metals end markets to continue for some time, as many customers are beginning to implement restructuring and cost reduction programs. In addition, we have seen softening expand into other end markets that were previously unaffected. We expect these trends to continue.
We expect operating results for the remainder of the year to be lower when compared to the comparable prior year period due to these conditions. As these conditions persist, we are managing the business to the level of demand we are seeing. We expect ongoing benefits from the restructuring and cost reduction initiatives we began earlier this year. These initiatives include the 2015 Altra Plan which we commenced in the quarter ended March 31, 2015 and which has also helped improve profitability of our Bauer business. We commenced three facility consolidations in the quarter ended June 30, 2015 and we expect to continue to pursue our restructuring efforts in future quarters.
Critical Accounting Policies
The preparation of our condensed consolidated financial statements and related disclosures in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States requires management to make judgments, assumptions and estimates that affect our reported amounts of assets, revenues and expenses, as well as related disclosures of contingent assets and liabilities. We base our estimates on past experiences and other assumptions we believe to be appropriate, and we evaluate these estimates on an on-going basis. See the discussion of critical accounting policies in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2014. There have been no changes in the identification or application of the Company’s critical accounting policies during the quarter ended September 30, 2015.

The decrease in sales during the quarter ended September 30, 2015 was due to the effect of foreign exchange rates, and lower sales levels in several end markets. Of the decrease in sales, approximately $11.7 million relates to the impact of changes to foreign exchange rates primarily attributed to the exchange rate declines for the Euro and British Pound compared to the prior year. In addition, $7.8 million relates to decreased sales in various end markets, primarily oil and gas and agriculture in our Clutches, Couplings and Brakes and Gearing business segments.

million which impacted gross profit negatively. Adjusted gross profit net of this supplier provision would have been 31.6% of sales. We expect the gross profit as a percentage of sales in future periods will remain relatively consistent with the adjusted gross profit net of the supplier provision experienced in the quarter ended September 30, 2015.

Approximately $2.8 million of the decrease in SG&A relates to the impact of foreign exchange rates for the Euro and British Pound compared to the same period in the prior year.

The company commenced a restructuring plan ("2014 Altra Plan") during the quarter ended September 30, 2014 as a result of weak demand in Europe and to make certain adjustments to its existing sales force to reflect the Company's expanding global footprint. During the quarter ended March 31, 2015, the Company commenced a separate restructuring plan ("2015 Altra Plan") as a result of weak demand in Europe and to make certain adjustments to improve business effectiveness, reduce the number of facilities and streamline the Company's cost structure.
The decrease in restructuring during the quarter ended September 30, 2015 is due to the timing of certain of the actions taken under the 2014 Plan which were initiated during the quarter ended September 30, 2014, while the majority of the actions taken to date under the 2015 Plan were initiated prior to the quarter ended September 30, 2015.
