NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS - UNAUDITED

(in thousands except for share and per share data)

March 31, 2021

NOTE 1 — Basis of Presentation

The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared by CTS Corporation (“CTS”, "we", "our", "us" or the "Company”), without audit, pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission. Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles have been omitted pursuant to such rules and regulations. The unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the financial statements, notes thereto, and other information included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10‑K for the year ended December 31, 2020.

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements reflect, in the opinion of management, all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring items) necessary for a fair statement, in all material respects, of the financial position and results of operations for the periods presented. The preparation of financial statements in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reported period. Actual results could differ materially from those estimates. The results of operations for the interim periods are not necessarily indicative of the results for the entire year. Certain reclassifications have been made to prior year amounts to conform to the current year presentation. The reclassifications had no impact on previously reported net earnings.

NOTE 2 – Revenue Recognition

The core principle of Topic 606 is that an entity should recognize revenue to depict the transfer of promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the entity expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services. The guidance provides a five-step process to achieve that core principle:

 

Identify the contract(s) with a customer

 

Identify the performance obligations

 

Determine the transaction price

 

Allocate the transaction price

 

Recognize revenue when the performance obligations are met

We recognize revenue when the performance obligations specified in our contracts have been satisfied, after considering the impact of variable consideration and other factors that may affect the transaction price. Our contracts normally contain a single performance obligation that is fulfilled on the date of delivery based on shipping terms stipulated in the contract. We usually expect payment within 30 to 90 days from the shipping date, depending on our terms with the customer. None of our contracts as of March 31, 2021 contained a significant financing component. Differences between the amount of revenue recognized and the amount invoiced, collected from, or paid to our customers are recognized as contract assets or liabilities. Contract assets will be reviewed for impairment when events or circumstances indicate that they may not be recoverable.

To the extent the transaction price includes variable consideration, we estimate the amount of variable consideration that should be included in the transaction price utilizing the most likely amount method based on an analysis of historical experience and current facts and circumstances, which requires significant judgment. Variable consideration is included in the transaction price if, in our judgment, it is probable that a significant future reversal of cumulative revenue under the contract will not occur.

NOTE 3 – Business Acquisitions

On December 30, 2020, we acquired 100% of the outstanding shares of Sensor Scientific, Inc. (“SSI”). SSI is a manufacturer of high-quality thermistors and temperature sensor assemblies serving original equipment manufacturers (“OEMs”) for applications that require precision and reliability in the medical, industrial and defense markets. SSI has complementary capabilities with our existing temperature sensing platform and the acquisition expands our presence in the medical end market. It also provides high quality ceramic processing capabilities and valuable customer partnerships that expands our temperature sensing product portfolio and builds on our strategy to focus on innovative products that sense, connect and move.

The purchase price, which includes assumed changes in working capital, of $10,309 has been allocated to the fair values of assets and liabilities acquired as of December 30, 2020. The allocation of the purchase price continues to be preliminary pending the completion of the valuation of intangible assets and finalization of management's estimates, which are expected to occur in the second quarter. The information included below represents our current estimate of the purchase price allocation.

The following table summarizes the consideration paid and the fair values of the assets acquired, and the liabilities assumed as of the date of acquisition of SSI:

Goodwill represents value the Company expects to be created by combining the operations of the acquired business with the Company's operations, including the expansion of customer relationships, access to new customers, and potential cost savings and synergies. Goodwill related to the acquisition is expected to be deductible for tax purposes.

All contingent consideration is payable in cash and is based on success factors related to the integration process as well as upon the achievement of a revenue performance target through the year ending December 31, 2022, with the possibility of prorated interim payments. The Company recorded $2,000 as the acquisition date fair value of the contingent consideration based on an estimate of the

probability of achieving the performance targets. This represents the maximum amount of contingent consideration payable by the Company. This amount is also reflected as an addition to the purchase price and will be evaluated quarterly.

As of March 31, 2021, $150 of the contingent consideration became due based on revenue targets achieved and will be paid out in the second quarter. As of March 31, 2021, and December 31, 2020, $950 and $800 were recorded in accrued expenses and other liabilities and $1,050 and $1,200 in other long-term obligations, in each case, respectively.
