NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (Unaudited)

A. ACCOUNTING POLICIES
In our opinion, the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements contain all adjustments, of a normal recurring nature, necessary to fairly state our financial position at September 30, 2021, our results of operations and comprehensive income (loss) for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020, cash flows for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020 and changes in shareholders' equity for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020. The condensed consolidated balance sheet at December 31, 2020 was derived from audited financial statements, but does not include all disclosures required by accounting principles generally accepted ("GAAP") in the United States of America.
Recently Adopted Accounting Pronouncements.In January 2020, the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") issued ASU 2020-01, "Investments-Equity Securities (Topic 321)," "Investments-Equity Method and Joint Ventures (Topic 323)," and "Derivatives and Hedging (Topic 815): Clarifying the Interactions between Topic 321, Topic 323, and Topic 815," which clarifies that an entity should consider observable transactions when either applying or discontinuing the equity method of accounting for the purposes of applying the measurement alternative in accordance with Topic 321. ASU 2020-01 clarifies that for certain forward contracts or purchased options to acquire investments, an entity should not consider whether, upon settlement of the forward contract or exercise of the purchased option, the underlying securities would be accounted for under the equity method or the fair value option. We adopted ASU 2020-01 prospectively beginning on January 1, 2021. The adoption of the standard did not have a material effect on our financial position or results of operations.

Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements.In August 2020, the FASB issued ASU 2020-06, "Debt-Debt with Conversion and Other Options (Subtopic 470-20) and Derivatives and Hedging-Contracts in Entity's Own Equity (Subtopic 815-40): Accounting for Convertible Instruments and Contracts in an Entity's Own Equity." ASU 2020-06 simplifies the accounting for convertible instruments by reducing the number of accounting models for convertible debt instruments and convertible preferred stock. ASU 2020-06 is effective for us for annual periods beginning January 1, 2022. We are currently reviewing the provisions of this pronouncement and the impact, if any, the adoption of this guidance has on our financial position or results of operations. The effect will largely depend on the composition and terms of the financial instruments at the time of adoption.

B. ACQUISITIONS
In the third quarter of 2021, we acquired all of the share capital of Steamist, Inc. ("Steamist") for approximately $56 million in cash. This amount is subject to working capital and other adjustments. Steamist is a manufacturer of residential steam bath products that are complementary to many of our plumbing products. This business is included in our Plumbing Products segment. In connection with this acquisition, we recognized $31 million of definite-lived intangible assets, primarily related to customer relationships. The definite-lived intangible assets are being amortized on a straight-line basis over a weighted average amortization period of 11 years. We also recognized $29 million of goodwill, which is not tax deductible, and is related primarily to the expected synergies from combining the operations into our business.

In the first quarter of 2021, we acquired a 75.1% equity interest in Easy Sanitary Solutions B.V. ("ESS"), for approximately €47 million ($58 million), including $52 million of cash and $6 million of debt that will be paid out over two years less any pending or settled indemnity matters. These amounts are subject to working capital and other adjustments. The cash payment was made to a third-party notary on December 29, 2020 for the acquisition of this equity interest in advance of the transaction closing on January 4, 2021. ESS is a manufacturer of shower channel drains and offers a wide range of products for barrier-free showering and bathroom wall niches. This business is included in our Plumbing Products segment. In connection with this acquisition, we recognized $32 million of definite-lived intangible assets, primarily related to customer relationships. The definite-lived intangible assets are being amortized on a straight-line basis over a weighted average amortization period of 10 years. We also recognized $35 million of goodwill, which is not tax deductible, and is related primarily to the expected synergies from combining the operations into our business.
The remaining 24.9% equity interest in ESS is subject to a call and put option that is exercisable by us or the sellers, respectively, any time after December 31, 2023. The redemption value of the call and put option is the same and based on a floating EBITDA value. The call and put options were determined to be embedded within the redeemable noncontrolling interest and were recorded as temporary equity in the condensed consolidated balance sheet at September 30, 2021. We elected to adjust the redeemable noncontrolling interest to its full redemption amount directly into retained (deficit) earnings.

B. ACQUISITIONS (Concluded)

In the fourth quarter of 2020, we acquired substantially all of the net assets of Kraus USA Inc. ("Kraus"), a designer and distributor of sinks, faucets and accessories for the kitchen and bathroom, for approximately $103 million and an additional cash payment of up to $50 million to be paid in 2023, contingent upon the achievement of certain financial performance metrics for the year ending December 31, 2022. As of the closing date of the acquisition, the contingent consideration was assigned a fair value of approximately $8 million. Refer to Note G for additional information regarding the subsequent remeasurement of the contingent consideration liability. This business expands our product offerings to our customers and our online presence under the Kraus brand. This business is included in our Plumbing Products segment. In connection with this acquisition, we recognized $25 million of indefinite-lived intangible assets, which is related to trademarks, and $49 million of definite-lived intangible assets, primarily related to customer relationships. The definite-lived intangible assets are being amortized on a straight-line basis over a weighted average amortization period of 10 years. We also recognized $20 million of goodwill, which is generally tax deductible, and is related primarily to the expected synergies from combining the operations into our business. During the first quarter of 2021, we revised the allocation of the purchase price to certain identifiable assets and liabilities based on analysis of information as of the acquisition date, which resulted in a $1 million decrease to goodwill. The working capital adjustments were finalized with the seller in the second quarter of 2021, resulting in no significant changes.
In the fourth quarter of 2020, we acquired substantially all of the net assets of Work Tools International Inc. and Elder & Jenks, LLC (collectively, "Work Tools") for approximately $53 million, including $48 million of cash and $5 million of debt that will be paid out in 18 months less any pending or settled indemnity matters. Work Tools expands our product offering to our customers as it is a leading manufacturer of high-quality precision painting tools and accessories including brushes, rollers and mini rollers for DIY and professionals. This business is included in our Decorative Architectural Products segment. In connection with this acquisition, we recognized $7 million of indefinite-lived intangible assets, which is related to trademarks, and $27 million of definite-lived intangible assets, primarily related to customer relationships. The definite-lived intangible assets are being amortized on a straight-line basis over a weighted average amortization period of 12 years. We also recognized $7 million of goodwill, which is generally tax deductible, and is related primarily to the expected synergies from combining the operations into our business. The working capital adjustments were finalized with the seller in the first quarter of 2021, resulting in no significant changes.
In the first quarter of 2020, we acquired all of the share capital of SmarTap A.Y Ltd. ("SmarTap") for approximately $24 million in cash. SmarTap is a developer of a smart bathing system that monitors and controls the temperature and flow of water. This acquisition provides an adaptable solution for a wide range of products as it is compatible with showerheads, hand showers, spouts and shower jets. This business is included in our Plumbing Products segment. In connection with this acquisition, we recognized $10 million of definite-lived intangible assets, primarily related to technology, which is being amortized on a straight-line basis over a weighted average amortization period of 5 years. We also recognized $14 million of goodwill, which is not tax deductible, and is related primarily to the expected synergies from combining the operations into our business.

C. DIVESTITURES
On May 31, 2021, we completed the divestiture of our Hüppe GmbH ("Hüppe") business, a manufacturer of shower enclosures and shower trays. In connection with the divestiture, we recognized a loss of $18 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2021, which is included in other, net in our condensed consolidated statements of operations. This loss resulted primarily from the recognition of $23 million of currency translation losses that were previously included within accumulated other comprehensive income (loss). The sale of Hüppe does not represent a strategic shift that will have a major effect on our operations and financial results and therefore was not presented as discontinued operations. Prior to the divestiture, the results of the business were included in our Plumbing Products segment.
On November 6, 2019, we completed the divestiture of our Milgard Windows and Doors business ("Milgard"), a manufacturer and distributor of windows and doors for proceeds of approximately $720 million, net of cash disposed. During the nine months ended September 30, 2020, a $17 million pre-tax post-closing adjustment related to the finalization of working capital items was recorded to income from discontinued operations, net in the condensed consolidated statements of operations, as a gain on the divestiture of Milgard. Of the $17 million, we received $15 million in cash as of September 30, 2020, which is presented in investing activities on the condensed consolidated statement of cash flow as proceeds from disposition of businesses, net of cash disposed. The remaining $2 million was received in two monthly installments throughout the remainder of 2020.
On November 14, 2019, we entered into a definitive agreement to sell Masco Cabinetry LLC ("Cabinetry"), a manufacturer of cabinetry products. We completed the divestiture of Cabinetry on February 18, 2020 for proceeds of approximately $989 million, including $853 million, net of cash disposed. The remaining $136 million was accounted for as preferred stock issued by a holding company of the buyer; refer to Note G for additional information. In connection with the sale, we recognized a gain on the divestiture of $585 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020, which is included in income from discontinued operations, net in the condensed consolidated statement of operations.
As the sale of Milgard and Cabinetry represented a strategic shift having a major effect on our operations and financial results, these businesses were presented in discontinued operations separate from continuing operations for the nine months ended September 30, 2020, as applicable. There was no activity for the three months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020.

G. FAIR VALUE OF FINANCIAL INVESTMENTS
Preferred Stock of ACProducts Holding, Inc. As described in Note C, in conjunction with our divestiture of Cabinetry, we received preferred stock of ACProducts Holding, Inc., the holding company of the buyer, with a liquidation preference of $150 million. We did not have the ability to exercise significant influence, and the fair value of this security was not readily available. We elected to measure this investment at cost (less impairment, if any) adjusted for observable price changes in orderly transactions for identical or similar investments of the same issuer for subsequent measurements of fair value. As the preferred stock was received in conjunction with the sale of Cabinetry, we determined the cost to be the fair value of the preferred stock at the time of sale, which was determined to be $136 million and was included in other assets in our condensed consolidated balance sheet.

In May 2021, we received, in cash, $166 million for the redemption of the preferred stock, including all accrued but unpaid dividends, and recognized a gain of $14 million which was included within other, net in our condensed consolidated statements of operations.

Prior to the redemption, dividends earned on this investment were included within other, net in our condensed consolidated statements of operations with a corresponding increase to our basis in the investment. We had dividend income of $6 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2021, and $3 million and $7 million for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020, respectively. The preferred stock was reported at the carrying value of $146 million in other assets in our condensed consolidated balance sheet at December 31, 2020.

Kraus Acquisition Contingent Consideration.As described in Note B, we may be obligated to pay up to an additional $50 million in 2023 for the Kraus acquisition contingent upon the achievement of certain financial performance metrics for the year ending December 31, 2022. The measurement of the liability for contingent consideration is based on significant inputs that are not observable in the market, and is therefore classified as Level 3 inputs. Examples of utilized unobservable inputs are estimated future revenues and earnings of the acquired business and an applicable discount rate. The estimate of the liability may fluctuate if there are changes in the forecast of the acquired business' future revenues and earnings, as a result of actual levels achieved, or in the discount rate used to determine the present value of contingent future cash flows. All subsequent remeasurements from the initial estimate at the time of acquisition are recorded in other, net in our condensed consolidated statement of operations, as described in Note N. The fair value of the liability was estimated to be $22 million and $8 million as of September 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020, respectively, using probability weighted discounted cash flows and a discount rate that reflects the uncertainty surrounding the expected outcomes, which we believe is appropriate and representative of a market participant assumption.

Fair Value of Debt.The fair value of our short-term and long-term fixed-rate debt instruments is based principally upon modeled market prices for the same or similar issues, which are Level 1 inputs. The aggregate estimated market value of our short-term and long-term debt at September 30, 2021 was approximately $3.2 billion, compared with the aggregate carrying value of $3.0 billion. The aggregate estimated market value of our short-term and long-term debt at December 31, 2020 was approximately $3.3 billion, compared with the aggregate carrying value of $2.8 billion.

I. DEBT
On March 4, 2021, we issued $600 million of 1.500% Notes due February 15, 2028, $600 million of 2.000% Notes due February 15, 2031 and $300 million of 3.125% Notes due February 15, 2051. We received proceeds of $1,495 million, net of discount, for the issuance of these Notes. The Notes are senior indebtedness and are redeemable at our option at the applicable redemption price. On March 22, 2021, proceeds from the debt issuances, together with cash on hand, were used to repay and early retire our $326 million 5.950% Notes due March 15, 2022, $500 million 4.450% Notes due April 1, 2025, and $500 million 4.375% Notes due April 1, 2026. In connection with these early retirements, we incurred a loss on debt extinguishment of $168 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2021, which was recorded as interest expense in the condensed consolidated statement of operations.

On September 18, 2020, we issued $300 million of 2.000% Notes due October 1, 2030 (the "2030 Notes") and received proceeds of $300 million, net of discount, for the issuance of the 2030 Notes. Also on September 18, 2020, we issued an incremental $100 million of our existing 4.500% Notes due May 15, 2047 (the "2047 Notes") and received proceeds of $119 million, including a premium, for the issuance of the 2047 Notes. The incremental $100 million will form a single series with the existing $300 million of 4.500% Notes due May 15, 2047. The 2030 Notes and 2047 Notes are senior indebtedness and are redeemable at our option at the applicable redemption price. On September 29, 2020, proceeds from the debt issuances were used to repay and early retire our $400 million 3.500% Notes due April 1, 2021. In connection with this early retirement, we incurred a loss on debt extinguishment of $6 million for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020, which was recorded as interest expense in the condensed consolidated statement of operations.

On March 13, 2019, we entered into a credit agreement (the "Credit Agreement") with an aggregate commitment of $1.0 billion and a maturity date of March 13, 2024. Under the Credit Agreement, at our request and subject to certain conditions, we can increase the aggregate commitment up to an additional $500 million with the current lenders or new lenders.
The Credit Agreement provides for an unsecured revolving credit facility available to us and one of our foreign subsidiaries, in U.S. dollars, European euros, British Pounds Sterling, Canadian dollars and certain other currencies for revolving credit loans, swingline loans and letters of credit. Borrowings under the revolving credit loans denominated in any agreed upon currency other than U.S. dollars are limited to $500 million, equivalent. We can also borrow swingline loans up to $100 million and obtain letters of credit of up to $25 million; outstanding letters of credit under the Credit Agreement reduce our borrowing capacity. At September 30, 2021, we had no outstanding standby letters of credit under the Credit Agreement.
Revolving credit loans bear interest under the Credit Agreement, at our option, at (A) a rate per annum equal to the greater of (i) the JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A. prime rate, (ii) the Federal Reserve Bank of New York effective rate plus 0.50% and (iii) if available, adjusted LIBO Rate plus 1.0% (the "Alternative Base Rate"); plus an applicable margin based upon our then-applicable corporate credit ratings; or (B) if available, adjusted LIBO Rate plus an applicable margin based upon our then-applicable corporate credit ratings. The foreign currency revolving credit loans bear interest at a rate equal to adjusted LIBO Rate, if available, plus an applicable margin based upon our then-applicable corporate credit ratings.
The Credit Agreement contains financial covenants requiring us to maintain (A) a net leverage ratio, as adjusted for certain items, not exceeding 4.0 to 1.0, and (B) a minimum interest coverage ratio, as adjusted for certain items, not less than 2.5 to 1.0.
In order for us to borrow under the Credit Agreement, there must not be any default in our covenants in the Credit Agreement (i.e., in addition to the two financial covenants, principally limitations on subsidiary debt, negative pledge restrictions, legal compliance requirements and maintenance of properties and insurance) and our representations and warranties in the Credit Agreement must be true in all material respects on the date of borrowing (i.e., principally no material adverse change or litigation likely to result in a material adverse change, since December 31, 2018, no material ERISA or environmental non-compliance, and no material tax deficiency). We were in compliance with all covenants and no borrowings were outstanding at September 30, 2021.

Restricted Stock Units.Restricted stock units are granted to our key employees and non-employee Directors. These grants did not cause net share dilution due to our practice of repurchasing and retiring an equal number of shares in the open market.

We granted 662,980 restricted stock units in the nine months ended September 30, 2021 with a weighted average grant date fair value of $57 per share. In the nine months ended September 30, 2021, 141,461 shares were issued and 15,487 restricted stock units were forfeited. During the nine months ended September 30, 2020, we granted 437,170 restricted stock units with a grant date fair value of approximately $47 per share and 7,930 restricted stock units were forfeited.

P. OTHER COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES
We are involved in claims and litigation, including class actions, mass torts and regulatory proceedings, which arise in the ordinary course of our business. The types of matters may include, among others: competition, product liability, employment, warranty, advertising, contract, personal injury, environmental, intellectual property and insurance coverage. We believe we have adequate defenses in these matters. We are also subject to product safety regulations, product recalls and direct claims for product liabilities. We believe the likelihood that the outcome of these claims, litigation and product safety matters would have a material adverse effect on us is remote. However, there is no assurance that we will prevail in these matters, and we could, in the future, incur judgments or penalties, enter into settlements of claims or revise our expectations regarding the outcome of these matters, which could materially impact our results of operations.

Q. INCOME TAXES

Our effective tax rate of 30 percent and 32 percent for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021 was impacted by $10 million and $15 million of income tax expense, respectively, due to losses providing no tax benefit in certain jurisdictions from the termination of our qualified domestic defined-benefit pension plans and a business divestiture. The tax rate in the nine-month period also includes a $16 million income tax expense from the elimination of disproportionate tax effects from accumulated other comprehensive income (loss) relating to our interest rate swap following the retirement of the related debt, and the termination of our qualified domestic defined-benefit pension plans.

Our effective tax rate of 23 percent and 24 percent for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020 was impacted by a $10 million and $13 million reduction in income tax expense, respectively, resulting from IRS guidance released during the third quarter of 2020 that allows us to exclude certain high-taxed foreign income from the U.S. tax effects on Global Intangible Low-Taxed Income.

We report our financial results in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") in the United States of America. However, we believe that certain non-GAAP performance measures and ratios used in managing the business may provide users of this financial information with additional meaningful comparisons between current results and results in prior periods. Non-GAAP performance measures and ratios should be viewed in addition to, and not as an alternative for, our reported results under GAAP.
The following discussion of consolidated results of operations and segment and geographic results refers to the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021 compared to the same periods of 2020.

NET SALES
Net sales increased 11 percent and 19 percent for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021, respectively. Excluding acquisitions, divestitures and the effect of currency translation, net sales increased nine percent and 15 percent for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021, respectively. The following table reconciles reported net sales to net sales, excluding acquisitions, divestitures and the effect of currency translation, in millions:

Three Months Ended September 30, Nine Months Ended September 30,

Net sales, excluding acquisitions, divestitures and the effect of currency translation $ 2,131 $ 1,964 $ 6,079 $ 5,303
North American net sales increased 10 percent for the three months ended September 30, 2021. Higher sales volume of plumbing products as well as favorable net selling prices of paints and other coating products and plumbing products and to a lesser extent builders' hardware products, in aggregate, increased sales by nine percent. The acquisitions of Kraus, Work Tools and Steamist increased sales by three percent. Such increases were partially offset by lower sales volume of builders' hardware, lighting and paints and other coating products, which in aggregate decreased sales by two percent. North American net sales increased 15 percent for the nine months ended September 30, 2021. Higher sales volume of plumbing products, and to a lesser extent, higher net selling prices of paints and other coating products and plumbing products, in aggregate, increased sales by 12 percent. The acquisitions of Kraus, Work Tools and Steamist increased sales by three percent and favorable currency translation increased sales by one percent. Such increases were slightly offset by lower sales volume of paints and other coating products, which decreased sales by one percent.

International net sales increased 17 percent and 37 percent for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021, respectively. In local currencies (including sales in currencies outside their respective functional currencies), net sales increased 15 percent and 29 percent for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021, respectively. Higher sales volume and, to a lesser extent, favorable sales mix and net selling prices of plumbing products increased sales by 17 percent and 28 percent for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021, respectively. The acquisition of ESS increased sales by three percent for both the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021. These increases were slightly offset by the divestiture of Hüppe which decreased sales by five percent and three percent for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021, respectively.









23


Net sales in the Plumbing Products segment increased 16 percent and 32 percent for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021, respectively. Higher sales volume increased sales by nine percent and 22 percent, and favorable net selling prices increased sales by four percent and two percent for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021, respectively, and favorable sales mix increased sales by two percent for the nine months ended September 30, 2021. The acquisitions of Kraus, ESS and Steamist increased sales by four percent and five percent for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021, respectively. Favorable foreign currency translation increased sales by one percent and three percent for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021, respectively. These increases were slightly offset by the divestiture of Hüppe which decreased sales by two percent and one percent for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021, respectively.

Net sales in the Decorative Architectural Products segment increased four percent for the three months ended September 30, 2021 primarily due to favorable net selling prices of paints and other coating products and to a lesser extent builders' hardware and lighting products. Such increases were partially offset by lower sales volume of builders' hardware, lighting and paints and other coating products. Net sales in the Decorative Architectural Products segment increased three percent for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 due to favorable net selling prices of paints and other coating products and to a lesser extent higher sales volume of builders' hardware products. Such increases were partially offset by lower sales volume of paints and other coating products. The Work Tools acquisition increased sales by one percent for both periods.

OPERATING PROFIT
Our gross profit margin was 34.2 percent and 35.3 percent for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021, respectively, compared to 37.9 percent and 36.2 percent for the comparable period of 2020. Gross profit margins for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021 were negatively impacted by increased commodity and transportation costs. This decline was partially offset by increased sales volume, higher net selling prices and cost savings initiatives as well as favorable sales mix for the nine month period.

Selling, general and administrative expenses, as a percentage of sales, was 16.7 percent and 16.6 percent for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021, respectively, compared to 16.5 percent and 17.6 percent for the comparable period of 2020. Selling, general and administrative expenses for the three months ended September 30, 2021 were negatively impacted by increased other expenses (such as marketing costs, labor costs and travel and entertainment costs), partially offset by the leverage of fixed expenses due primarily to increased sales volume. Selling, general and administrative expenses for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 were positively impacted by leverage of fixed expenses due primarily to increased sales volume and cost savings initiatives.

Operating profit in the Plumbing Products segment for the three months ended September 30, 2021 was negatively impacted by increased commodity, transportation and marketing costs as well as increased labor costs. These negative impacts were partially offset by higher net selling prices and increased sales volume. Operating profit in the Plumbing Products segment for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 was positively impacted by increased sales volume, higher net selling prices, favorable sales mix, cost savings initiatives and a positive currency impact. These positive impacts were partially offset by increased commodity costs, transportation costs and labor costs.

Operating profit in the Decorative Architectural Products segment for the three months ended September 30, 2021 was negatively impacted by increased commodity costs, lower sales volume and higher transportation and marketing costs. These negative impacts were partially offset by higher net selling prices, and to a lesser extent, favorable sales mix. Operating profit in the Decorative Architectural Products segment for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 benefited primarily from higher net selling prices, cost savings initiatives, favorable sales mix and lower fixed expenses in our lighting business. These positive impacts were partially offset by increased commodity costs, lower sales volume and higher transportation costs.








24


OTHER INCOME (EXPENSE), NET
Interest expense for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021 was $26 million and $253 million, respectively, compared to $40 million and $110 million for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020, respectively. The decrease in interest expense for the three months ended September 30, 2021 as compared to the same period in the prior year is due to interest savings related to debt refinancing in the first quarter of 2021 and the absence of the loss on debt extinguishment recorded in connection with the early retirement of debt in the third quarter of 2020. The increase in interest expense for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 as compared to the same period in the prior year is primarily due to the $168 million loss on debt extinguishment which was recorded as additional interest expense in connection with the early retirement of debt in the first quarter of 2021.

Other, net, for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021 was $17 million and $438 million, respectively, compared to $4 million and $22 million for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020, respectively. Other, net, for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021 included $4 million and $430 million of net periodic pension and post-retirement benefit cost, respectively, which includes $406 million of settlement loss related to the termination of our qualified domestic defined-benefit pension plans for the nine months ended September 30, 2021. Additionally, other, net included a loss of $18 million related to the divestiture of Hüppe for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 and $14 million expense from the revaluation of contingent consideration related to a prior acquisition for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021. These amounts were partially offset by a $14 million gain recognized on the redemption of the preferred stock of ACProducts Holding, Inc. and $6 million of related dividend income for the nine months ended September 30, 2021, and $5 million and $7 million of earnings related to equity method investments for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021, respectively.

Other, net, for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020 included $9 million and $25 million, respectively, of net periodic pension and post-retirement benefit cost and $3 million and $7 million, respectively, of dividend income related to preferred stock of ACProducts Holding, Inc. Other, net for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020 also included $1 million of foreign currency transaction gains and $6 million of foreign currency transaction losses, respectively.

INCOME TAXES

Our effective tax rate of 30 percent and 32 percent for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021, respectively, was higher than our normalized tax rate of 25 percent. The increase in the rate was primarily due to an additional $10 million and $15 million of income tax expense in the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021, respectively, due to losses providing no tax benefit in certain jurisdictions from the termination of our qualified domestic defined-benefit pension plans and a business divestiture. The nine-month rate was also impacted by a $16 million income tax expense from the elimination of disproportionate tax effects from accumulated other comprehensive income (loss) relating to our interest rate swap following the retirement of the related debt, and the termination of our qualified domestic defined-benefit pension plans.

Our effective tax rate was 23 percent and 24 percent for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020, respectively. Our tax rates were lower than our normalized tax rate of 25 percent due primarily to a $6 million reduction in income tax expense in both periods, resulting from IRS guidance released during the third quarter of 2020, that allows us to exclude certain high-taxed foreign income from the U.S. tax effects on Global Intangible Low-taxed Income. Also, our effective tax rate for the nine-month period was lower than our normalized tax rate due to an additional $5 million income tax benefit on stock-based compensation.

INCOME AND INCOME PER COMMON SHARE FROM CONTINUING OPERATIONS - ATTRIBUTABLE TO MASCO CORPORATION
Income from continuing operations for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021 was $220 million and $278 million, respectively, compared to $275 million and $618 million for the comparable periods of 2020. Diluted income per common share from continuing operations for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021 was $0.89 and $1.07, respectively, per common share, compared with $1.05 and $2.31, respectively, per common share for the comparable periods of 2020.

OTHER FINANCIAL INFORMATION
Our current ratio was 1.8 to 1 at both September 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2021, net cash provided by operating activities was $595 million. Our cash flows from operations benefited from higher operating profit, offset by changes in working capital and pension contributions related to the settlement of our qualified domestic defined-benefit pension plans.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2021, net cash used for financing activities was $1,095 million, primarily due to $1,326 million for the early retirement of our 5.950% Notes due March 15, 2022, 4.450% Notes due April 1, 2025, and 4.375% Notes due April 1, 2026 and $160 million of related debt extinguishment costs. Net cash used for financing activities was also impacted by $878 million for the repurchase and retirement of our common stock (including 0.7 million shares repurchased to offset the dilutive impact of restricted stock units granted in 2021), $154 million for the payment of cash dividends, $43 million for dividends paid to noncontrolling interest and $14 million for employee withholding taxes paid on stock-based compensation. These uses of cash were partially offset by proceeds, net of issuance costs, of $1,481 million due to the issuances of $600 million of 1.500% Notes due February 15, 2028, $600 million of 2.000% Notes due February 15, 2031 and $300 million of 3.125% Notes due February 15, 2051.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2021, net cash provided by investing activities was $43 million, primarily due to the $166 million received, in cash, for the redemption of the preferred stock of ACProducts Holding Inc., partially offset by $82 million of capital expenditures and $56 million for the acquisition of Steamist, Inc.
Our cash and cash investments were $854 million and $1.3 billion at September 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020, respectively. Our cash and cash investments consist of overnight interest-bearing money market demand accounts, time deposit accounts and money market mutual funds containing government securities and treasury obligations.

Of the $854 million and $1.3 billion of cash and cash investments held at September 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020, $465 million and $385 million, respectively, was held in our foreign subsidiaries. If these funds were needed for our operations in the U.S., their repatriation into the U.S. would not result in significant additional U.S. income tax or foreign withholding tax, as we have recorded such taxes on substantially all undistributed foreign earnings, except for those that are legally restricted.

On March 4, 2021, we issued $600 million of 1.500% Notes due February 15, 2028, $600 million of 2.000% Notes due February 15, 2031 and $300 million of 3.125% Notes due February 15, 2051. We received proceeds of $1,495 million, net of discount, for the issuance of these Notes. The Notes are senior indebtedness and are redeemable at our option at the applicable redemption price. On March 22, 2021, proceeds from the debt issuances, together with cash on hand, were used to repay and early retire our $326 million 5.950% Notes due March 15, 2022, $500 million 4.450% Notes due April 1, 2025, and $500 million 4.375% Notes due April 1, 2026. In connection with these early retirements, we incurred a loss on debt extinguishment of $168 million, which was recorded as interest expense for the nine months ended September 30, 2021.

On September 18, 2020, we issued $300 million of 2.000% Notes due October 1, 2030 and received proceeds of $300 million, net of discount, for the issuance of the 2030 Notes. Also on September 18, 2020, we issued an incremental $100 million on our existing 4.500% Notes due May 15, 2047 and received proceeds of $119 million, including a premium, for the issuance of the 2047 Notes. The incremental $100 million will form a single series with the existing $300 million of 4.500% Notes due May 15, 2047. The 2030 Notes and 2047 Notes are senior indebtedness and are redeemable at our option at the applicable redemption price. On September 29, 2020, proceeds from the debt issuances were used to repay and early retire our $400 million 3.500% Notes due April 1, 2021. In connection with this early retirement, we incurred a loss on debt extinguishment of $6 million, which was recorded as interest expense for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020.

On March 13, 2019, we entered into a credit agreement (the "Credit Agreement") with an aggregate commitment of $1.0 billion and a maturity date of March 13, 2024. Under the Credit Agreement, at our request and subject to certain conditions, we can increase the aggregate commitment up to an additional $500 million with the current lenders or new lenders. See Note I to the condensed consolidated financial statements.



26


The Credit Agreement contains financial covenants requiring us to maintain (A) a net leverage ratio, as adjusted for certain items, not exceeding 4.0 to 1.0, and (B) a minimum interest coverage ratio, as adjusted for certain items, not less than 2.5 to 1.0. We were in compliance with all covenants and no borrowings were outstanding under our Credit Agreement at September 30, 2021.

As part of our ongoing efforts to improve our cash flow and related liquidity, we work with suppliers to optimize our terms and conditions, including extending payment terms. We also facilitate a voluntary supply chain finance program (the "program") to provide certain of our suppliers with the opportunity to sell receivables due from us to participating financial institutions at the sole discretion of both the suppliers and the financial institutions. A third party administers the program; our responsibility is limited to making payment on the terms originally negotiated with our supplier, regardless of whether the supplier sells its receivable to a financial institution. We do not enter into agreements with any of the participating financial institutions in connection with the program. The range of payment terms we negotiate with our suppliers is consistent, irrespective of whether a supplier participates in the program.

All outstanding payments owed under the program are recorded within accounts payable in our condensed consolidated balance sheets. The amounts owed to participating financial institutions under the program and included in accounts payable for our continuing operations were $45 million at both September 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020. We account for all payments made under the program as a reduction to our cash flows from operations and reported within our increase in accounts payable and accrued liabilities, net, line within our condensed consolidated statements of cash flows. The amounts settled through the program and paid to participating financial institutions were $170 million and $97 million for our continuing operations during the nine months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020, respectively. A downgrade in our credit rating or changes in the financial markets could limit the financial institutions' willingness to commit funds to, and participate in, the program. We do not believe such risk would have a material impact on our working capital or cash flows, as substantially all of our payments are made outside of the program.

We believe that our present cash balance, cash flows from operations, and borrowing availability under our Credit Agreement are sufficient to fund our near-term working capital and other investment needs. We believe that our longer-term working capital and other general corporate requirements will be satisfied through cash flows from operations and, to the extent necessary, from bank borrowings and future financial market activities.

COVID-19 IMPACT AND GENERAL BUSINESS CONDITIONS
During 2020, certain aspects of our businesses were adversely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Many, but not all, of our businesses remained operating because the products we provide are critical to infrastructure sectors and day-to-day operations of homes and businesses in our communities as defined by applicable local orders. Operational activity that was previously slowed at certain of our facilities as a result of the pandemic and governmental orders, largely resumed normal capacity by the third quarter of 2020. This has enabled us to progress on fulfilling production backorders that developed, as well as to meet current consumer demand, which has continued to be strong in the first nine months of 2021.

We continue to be committed to the safety and well-being of our employees during this time, and, led by our cross-functional Infectious Illness Response Team, we are employing best practices and following guidance from the World Health Organization, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and local authorities.

Finally, we are experiencing and expect to continue to experience higher commodity and transportation costs, and supply chain disruptions, particularly disruptions related to our ability to source products, components and raw materials. We are also experiencing and expect to continue to experience labor cost inflation and constraints in hiring qualified employees. We plan to offset the potential unfavorable impact of these items with productivity improvement and other initiatives.










27


OUTLOOK FOR THE COMPANY
We continue to execute our strategies of leveraging our strong brand portfolio, industry-leading positions and the Masco Operating System, our methodology to drive growth and productivity, to create long-term shareholder value. We remain confident in the fundamentals of our business and long-term strategy. We believe that our strong financial position and cash flow generation, together with our investments in our industry-leading branded building products, our continued focus on innovation and disciplined capital allocation, will allow us to drive long-term growth and create value for our shareholders.
