IDEX CORPORATION
NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(Amounts in thousands except share data and where otherwise indicated)
(unaudited)

1. Basis of Presentation and Significant Accounting Policies

The Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements of IDEX Corporation ("IDEX" or the "Company") have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("U.S. GAAP") applicable to interim financial information and the instructions to Form 10-Q under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. The statements are unaudited but include all adjustments, consisting only of recurring items, except as noted, that the Company considers necessary for a fair presentation of the information set forth herein. The results of operations for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021 are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the entire year.

The Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements and Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations set forth in this report should be read in conjunction with the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020.

Recently Adopted Accounting Standards

In December 2019, the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") issued Accounting Standards Update ("ASU") 2019-12, Simplifying the Accounting for Income Taxes, which eliminates the need to analyze whether the following apply in a given period (1) exception to the incremental approach for intraperiod tax allocation, (2) exceptions to accounting for basis differences when there are ownership changes in foreign investments and (3) exceptions in interim period income tax accounting for year-to-date losses that exceed anticipated losses. This ASU is also designed to improve the application of income tax-related guidance and simplify U.S. GAAP for (1) franchise taxes that are partially based on income, (2) transactions with a government that result in a step-up in the tax basis of goodwill, (3) separate financial statements of legal entities that are not subject to tax and (4) enacted changes in tax laws in interim periods. The Company adopted this standard on January 1, 2021. The adoption of this standard did not have a material impact on the Company's Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements.

2. Acquisitions and Divestitures

All of the Company's acquisitions of businesses have been accounted for under Accounting Standards Codification ("ASC") 805, Business Combinations. Accordingly, the accounts of the acquired companies, after adjustments to reflect the fair values assigned to assets and liabilities, have been included in the Company's Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements from their respective dates of acquisition. The results of operations associated with the acquisitions of ABEL Pumps, L.P. and certain of its affiliates ("ABEL") and Airtech Group, Inc., US Valve Corporation and related entities ("Airtech") have been included in the Company's condensed consolidated results since the dates of acquisition on March 10, 2021 and June 14, 2021, respectively.

The Company incurred acquisition-related transaction costs of $0.7 million and $1.3 million in the three months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020, respectively, and $4.4 million and $3.1 million in the nine months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020, respectively. These costs were recorded in Selling, general and administrative expenses and were related to completed transactions, pending transactions and potential transactions, including transactions that ultimately were not completed. The Company recorded a $2.5 million fair value inventory step-up charge associated with the completed 2021 acquisition of ABEL in Cost of sales during the nine months ended September 30, 2021 and a $9.1 million fair value inventory step-up charge associated with the completed 2021 acquisition of Airtech in Cost of sales during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021. The Company also recorded a $4.1 million fair value inventory step-up charge associated with the completed 2020 acquisition of Flow Management Devices, LLC ("Flow MD") in Cost of sales during the nine months ended September 30, 2020.

Contract Balances

The timing of revenue recognition, billings and cash collections can result in customer receivables, advance payments or billings in excess of revenue recognized. Customer receivables include both amounts billed and currently due from customers as well as unbilled amounts (contract assets) and are included in Receivables on the Company's Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets. Amounts are billed in accordance with contractual terms or as work progresses. Unbilled amounts arise when the timing of billing differs from the timing of revenue recognized, such as when contract provisions require specific milestones to be met before a customer can be billed. Unbilled amounts primarily relate to performance obligations satisfied over time when the cost-to-cost method (defined below) is utilized and the revenue recognized exceeds the amount billed to the customer as there is not yet a right to invoice in accordance with contractual terms. Unbilled amounts are recorded as a contract asset when the revenue associated with the contract is recognized prior to billing and derecognized when billed in accordance with the terms of the contract. Customer receivables are recorded at face amount less an allowance for doubtful accounts. The Company maintains an allowance for doubtful accounts for expected losses as a result of customers' inability to make required payments. Management evaluates the aging of customer receivable balances, the financial condition of its customers, historical trends and the time outstanding of specific balances to estimate the amount of customer receivables that may not be collected in the future and records the appropriate provision.

The composition of Customer receivables was as follows:
September 30, 2021 December 31, 2020
Billed receivables $ 352,238 $ 273,536
Unbilled receivables 14,956 14,752
Total customer receivables $ 367,194 $ 288,288

Advance payments, deposits and billings in excess of revenue recognized are included in Deferred revenue which is classified as current or noncurrent based on the timing of when the Company expects to recognize the revenue. The current portion is included in Accrued expenses and the noncurrent portion is included in Other noncurrent liabilities on the Company's Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets. Advance payments and deposits represent contract liabilities and are recorded when customers remit contractual cash payments in advance of us satisfying performance obligations under contractual arrangements, including those with performance obligations satisfied over time. The Company generally receives advance payments from customers related to maintenance services which the Company recognizes ratably over the service term. The Company also receives deposits from customers on certain orders which the Company recognizes as revenue at a point in time. Billings in excess of revenue recognized represent contract liabilities and primarily relate to performance obligations satisfied over time when the cost-to-cost method (defined below) is utilized and revenue cannot yet be recognized as the Company has not completed the corresponding performance obligation. Contract liabilities are derecognized when revenue is recognized and the performance obligation is satisfied.

The composition of Deferred revenue was as follows:
September 30, 2021 December 31, 2020
Deferred revenue - current $ 45,055 $ 28,374
Deferred revenue - noncurrent 31,025 30,354
Total deferred revenue $ 76,080 $ 58,728

Performance Obligations

A performance obligation is a promise in a contract to transfer a distinct product or service to the customer. A contract's transaction price is allocated to each performance obligation and recognized as revenue when, or as, the performance obligation is satisfied. For contracts that require complex design, manufacturing and installation activities, certain performance obligations may not be separately identifiable from other performance obligations in the contract and, therefore, not distinct. As a result, the entire contract is accounted for as a single performance obligation. For contracts that include distinct products or services that are substantially the same and have the same pattern of transfer to the customer over time, they are recognized as a series of distinct products or services. Certain contracts have multiple performance obligations for which the Company allocates the transaction price to each performance obligation using an estimate of the standalone selling price of each distinct product or

service in the contract. For product sales, each product sold to a customer generally represents a distinct performance obligation. In such cases, the observable standalone sales are used to determine the standalone selling price. In certain cases, the Company may be required to estimate standalone selling price using the expected cost plus margin approach, under which it forecasts the expected costs of satisfying a performance obligation and then adds an appropriate margin for that distinct product or service.

The Company's performance obligations are satisfied either at a point in time or over time as work progresses. Performance obligations are supported by contracts with customers that provide a framework for the nature of the distinct product or service or bundle of products and services. The Company defines service revenue as revenue from activities that are not associated with the design, development or manufacture of a product or the delivery of a software license.

Revenue from products and services transferred to customers at a point in time approximated 95% of total revenues in each of the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020. Revenue on these contracts is recognized when obligations under the terms of the contract with the customer are satisfied. Generally, this occurs with the transfer of control of the asset, which is in line with shipping terms.

Revenue from products and services transferred to customers over time approximated 5% of total revenues in each of the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020. Revenue earned by certain business units within the Water, Energy, Material Processing Technologies ("MPT") and Dispensing reporting units is recognized over time because control transfers continuously to customers. When accounting for over-time contracts, the Company uses an input measure to determine the extent of progress towards completion of the performance obligation. For certain business units within the Water, Energy and MPT reporting units, revenue is recognized over time as work is performed based on the relationship between actual costs incurred to date for each contract and the total estimated costs for such contract at completion of the performance obligation (i.e., the cost-to-cost method). The Company believes this measure of progress best depicts the transfer of control to the customer which occurs as the Company incurs costs on its contracts. Incurred cost represents work performed, which corresponds with the transfer of control to the customer. Contract costs include labor, material and overhead. Contract estimates are based on various assumptions to project the outcome of future events. These assumptions include labor productivity and availability; the complexity of the work to be performed; the cost and availability of materials; the performance of subcontractors; and the availability and timing of funding from the customer. Revenues, including estimated fees or profits, are recorded proportionally as costs are incurred. For certain business units within the Energy and Dispensing reporting units, revenue is recognized ratably over the contract term.

As a significant change in one or more of these estimates could affect the profitability of the Company's contracts, the Company reviews and updates its estimates regularly. Due to uncertainties inherent in the estimation process, it is reasonably possible that completion costs, including those arising from contract penalty provisions and final contract settlements, will be revised. Such revisions to costs and income are recognized in the period in which the revisions are determined as a cumulative catch-up adjustment. The impact of the adjustment on profit recorded to date on a contract is recognized in the period the adjustment is identified. Revenue and profit in future periods of contract performance are recognized using the adjusted estimate. If at any time the estimate of contract profitability indicates an anticipated loss on the contract, the Company recognizes provisions for estimated losses on incomplete contracts in the period in which such losses are determined.

The Company records allowances for discounts and product returns at the time of sale as a reduction of revenue as such allowances can be reliably estimated based on historical experience and known trends. The Company also offers product warranties (primarily assurance-type) and accrues its estimated exposure for warranty claims at the time of sale based upon the length of the warranty period, warranty costs incurred and any other related information known to the Company.

6. Earnings Per Common Share

Diluted earnings per common share ("EPS") attributable to IDEX is computed by dividing net income attributable to IDEX by the weighted average number of shares of common stock (basic) plus common stock equivalents outstanding (diluted) during the period. Common stock equivalents consist of stock options, which have been included in the calculation of weighted average shares outstanding using the treasury stock method, restricted stock and performance share units.

ASC 260, Earnings Per Share,concludes that all outstanding unvested share-based payment awards that contain rights to nonforfeitable dividends participate in undistributed earnings with common shareholders. If awards are considered participating

(unaudited)
securities, the Company is required to apply the two-class method of computing basic and diluted earnings per share. The Company has determined that its outstanding shares of restricted stock are participating securities. Accordingly, EPS attributable to IDEX was computed using the two-class method prescribed by ASC 260.

Basic weighted average shares outstanding reconciles to diluted weighted average shares outstanding as follows:
Three Months Ended September 30, Nine Months Ended September 30,
2021 2020 2021 2020
Basic weighted average common shares outstanding 76,010 75,352 75,957 75,423
Dilutive effect of stock options, restricted stock and performance share units 442 608 451 696
Diluted weighted average common shares outstanding 76,452 75,960 76,408 76,119

Options to purchase approximately 0.3 million shares of common stock for both the three months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020, and 0.3 million and 0.6 million shares of common stock for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020, respectively, were not included in the computation of diluted EPS because the effect of their inclusion would have been antidilutive.

7. Inventories

The components of inventories as of September 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020 were:
September 30,
2021
December 31,
2020
Raw materials and component parts $ 212,427 $ 173,248
Work in process 41,586 29,436
Finished goods 99,911 87,226
Total inventories $ 353,924 $ 289,910

Inventories are stated at the lower of cost or net realizable value. Cost, which includes material, labor and factory overhead, is determined on a first in, first out basis.

8. Goodwill and Intangible Assets

The changes in the carrying amount of goodwill for the nine months ended September 30, 2021, by reportable business segment, were as follows:
FMT HST FSDP IDEX
Goodwill $ 670,442 $ 1,012,448 $ 413,315 $ 2,096,205
Accumulated goodwill impairment losses (20,721) (149,820) (30,090) (200,631)
Balance at December 31, 2020 649,721 862,628 383,225 1,895,574

Balance at September 30, 2021 $ 701,665 $ 1,119,599 $ 375,820 $ 2,197,084

ASC 350, Goodwill and Other Intangible Assets,requires that goodwill be tested for impairment at the reporting unit level on an annual basis and between annual tests if an event occurs or circumstances change that would more likely than not reduce the fair value of the reporting unit below its carrying value. In the first nine months of 2021, there were no events or circumstances that would have required an interim impairment test. Annually, on October 31, goodwill and other acquired intangible assets with indefinite lives are tested for impairment. Based on the results of the Company's annual impairment test at October 31, 2020, all reporting units had fair values in excess of their carrying values.

Total intangible assets $ 883,165 $ (269,799) $ 613,366 $ 666,060 $ (250,497) $ 415,563

The Banjo trade name and the Akron Brass trade name are indefinite-lived intangible assets which are tested for impairment on an annual basis in accordance with ASC 350 or more frequently if events or changes in circumstances indicate that the assets might be impaired. Based on the results of the Company's annual impairment test at October 31, 2020, these indefinite-lived intangible assets had fair values in excess of their carrying values. In the first nine months of 2021, there were no events or circumstances that would have required an interim impairment test on these indefinite-lived intangible assets. The Company uses the relief-from-royalty method, a form of the income approach, to determine the fair value of these trade names. The relief-from-royalty method is dependent on a number of significant management assumptions, including estimates of revenues, royalty rates and discount rates.

Amortization of intangible assets was $16.2 million and $40.7 million for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021, respectively. Amortization of intangible assets was $11.1 million and $31.1 million for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020, respectively. Based on the intangible asset balances as of September 30, 2021, amortization expense is expected to approximate $15.7 million for the remaining three months of 2021, $61.3 million in 2022, $58.1 million in 2023, $53.6 million in 2024 and $52.0 million in 2025.

Issuance of 2.625% Senior Notes in 2021

On May 28, 2021, the Company completed a public offering of $500.0 million in aggregate principal amount of 2.625% Senior Notes due June 2031 (the "2.625% Senior Notes"). The net proceeds from the offering were approximately $494.7 million, after deducting the issuance discount of $0.6 million, the underwriting commission of $3.3 million and offering expenses of $1.4 million. The net proceeds were used to redeem and repay the $350.0 million aggregate principal amount outstanding of its 4.20% Senior Notes due December 15, 2021 and a $6.7 million make-whole redemption premium, with the remaining balance used for general corporate purposes. The 2.625% Senior Notes bear interest at a rate of 2.625% per annum, which is payable semi-annually in arrears on June 15 and December 15 of each year. The 2.625% Senior Notes mature on June 15, 2031. The 2.625% Senior Notes were issued under an Indenture, dated as of December 6, 2010 (the "Base Indenture"), between the Company and Wells Fargo Bank, National Association, as trustee (the "Trustee"), as supplemented by the Fourth Supplemental Indenture, dated as of May 28, 2021 (the "Supplemental Indenture" and, together with the Base Indenture and other supplements thereto, the "Indenture"), between the Company and the Trustee.

The Company may redeem all or a portion of the 2.625% Senior Notes at any time prior to maturity at the redemption prices set forth in the Indenture. The Indenture and 2.625% Notes contain covenants that limit the Company's ability to, among other things, incur certain liens, enter into certain sale and leaseback transactions and enter into certain mergers, consolidations and transfers of substantially all of the Company's assets. The terms of the 2.625% Senior Notes also require the Company to make an offer to repurchase the 2.625% Senior Notes upon a change of control triggering event (as defined in the Indenture) at a price equal to 101% of the principal amount plus accrued and unpaid interest, if any. The Indenture also provides for customary events of default, which include nonpayment, breach of covenants or warranties in the Indenture and certain events of bankruptcy, insolvency or reorganization. Generally, if an event of default occurs, the Trustee or holders of at least 25% of the then outstanding 2.625% Senior Notes may declare the principal amount of all of the 2.625% Senior Notes to be due and payable immediately.

On May 17, 2021, the Company provided notice of its election to redeem early, on June 16, 2021, the $350.0 million aggregate principal amount outstanding of its 4.20% Senior Notes at a redemption price of $350.0 million plus a make-whole redemption premium of $6.7 million using proceeds from the Company's 2.625% Senior Notes. In addition, the Company recognized the remaining $1.3 million of the pre-tax amount included in Accumulated other comprehensive loss in shareholders' equity related to the interest rate exchange agreement associated with the 4.20% Senior Notes and wrote off the remaining $0.1 million of deferred issuance costs and $0.1 million of the debt issuance discount associated with the 4.20% Senior Notes as well as $0.4 million of deferred taxes for a total loss on early debt redemption of $8.6 million which was recorded within Other expense (income) - net in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations during the nine months ended September 30, 2021.

Issuance of 3.00% Senior Notes in 2020

On April 29, 2020, the Company completed a public offering of $500.0 million in aggregate principal amount of 3.00% Senior Notes due May 2030 (the "3.00% Senior Notes"). The net proceeds from the offering were approximately $494.4 million, after deducting the issuance discount of $0.9 million, the underwriting commission of $3.3 million and offering expenses of $1.4 million. The net proceeds were used to redeem and repay the $300.0 million aggregate principal amount outstanding of its 4.50% Senior Notes due December 15, 2020 and the related accrued interest and make-whole redemption premium, with the balance used for general corporate purposes. The 3.00% Senior Notes bear interest at a rate of 3.00% per annum, which is payable semi-annually in arrears on May 1 and November 1 of each year. The 3.00% Senior Notes mature on May 1, 2030.

On April 27, 2020, the Company provided notice of its election to redeem early, on May 27, 2020, the $300.0 million aggregate principal amount outstanding of its 4.50% Senior Notes at a redemption price of $300.0 million plus a make-whole redemption premium of $6.8 million and accrued and unpaid interest of $6.1 million using proceeds from the Company's 3.00% Senior Notes. In addition, the Company recognized the remaining $1.4 million of the pre-tax amount included in Accumulated other comprehensive loss in shareholders' equity related to the interest rate exchange agreement associated with the 4.50% Senior Notes and wrote off the remaining $0.1 million of deferred issuance costs and $0.1 million of the debt issuance discount associated with the 4.50% Senior Notes for a total loss on early debt redemption of $8.4 million which was recorded within Other expense (income) - net in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations during the nine months ended September 30, 2020.

Revolving Facility

On May 31, 2019, the Company entered into a credit agreement (the "Credit Agreement") along with certain of its subsidiaries, as borrowers (the "Borrowers"), Bank of America, N.A., as administrative agent, swing line lender and an issuer of letters of credit, with other agents party thereto. The Credit Agreement consists of a revolving credit facility (the "Revolving Facility") in an aggregate principal amount of $800 million with a final maturity date of May 31, 2024. The maturity date may be extended under certain conditions for an additional one-year term. Up to $75 million of the Revolving Facility is available for the issuance of letters of credit. Additionally, up to $50 million of the Revolving Facility is available to the Company for swing line loans, available on a same-day basis.

Borrowings under the Credit Agreement bear interest, at either an alternate base rate or adjusted LIBOR plus, in each case, an applicable margin. Such applicable margin is based on the lower of the Company's senior, unsecured, long-term debt rating or the Company's applicable leverage ratio and can range from 0.00% to 1.275%. Interest is payable (a) in the case of base rate loans, quarterly, and (b) in the case of LIBOR loans, on the last day of the applicable interest period selected, or every three months from the effective date of such interest period for interest periods exceeding three months.

At September 30, 2021, there was no balance outstanding under the Revolving Facility and $7.2 million of outstanding letters of credit, resulting in a net available borrowing capacity under the Revolving Facility at September 30, 2021 of approximately $792.8 million.

At September 30, 2021, the Company was in compliance with covenants contained in the Credit Agreement and other long-term debt agreements.

12. Derivative Instruments

The Company enters into cash flow hedges from time to time to reduce the exposure to variability in certain expected future cash flows. The types of cash flow hedges the Company enters into include foreign currency exchange contracts designed to minimize the earnings impact on certain intercompany loans as well as interest rate exchange agreements designed to reduce the impact of interest rate changes on future interest expense that effectively convert a portion of floating-rate debt to fixed-rate debt.

The effective portion of gains or losses on interest rate exchange agreements is reported in Accumulated other comprehensive loss in shareholders' equity and reclassified into net income in the same period or periods in which the hedged transaction affects net income. The remaining gain or loss in excess of the cumulative change in the present value of future cash flows or the hedged item, if any, is recognized in net income during the period of change. See Note 16for the amount of loss

reclassified into net income for interest rate contracts for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020. As of September 30, 2021, the Company did not have any interest rate contracts outstanding.

In 2010 and 2011, the Company entered into two separate forward starting interest rate exchange agreements in anticipation of the issuance of the 4.50% Senior Notes and the 4.20% Senior Notes. The Company cash settled these two interest rate contracts in 2010 and 2011 for a total of $68.9 million, which was being amortized into interest expense over the 10 year terms of the respective debt instruments. In conjunction with the early redemption of the 4.50% Senior Notes on May 27, 2020, the Company accelerated the recognition of the remaining $1.4 million of the pre-tax amount included in Accumulated other comprehensive loss in shareholders' equity related to the 4.50% Senior Notes and recorded such as Other expense (income) - net in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations during the nine months ended September 30, 2020. In conjunction with the early redemption of the 4.20% Senior Notes on June 16, 2021, the Company accelerated the recognition of the remaining $1.3 million of the pre-tax amount included in Accumulated other comprehensive loss in shareholders' equity related to the 4.20% Senior Notes and recorded such as Other expense (income) - net in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations during the nine months ended September 30, 2021. As of September 30, 2021, there was no balance in Accumulated other comprehensive loss related to the cumulative unrealized gain (loss) on derivatives.

13. Fair Value Measurements

ASC 820, Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures,defines fair value, provides guidance for measuring fair value and requires certain disclosures. This standard discusses valuation techniques, such as the market approach (comparable market prices), the income approach (present value of future income or cash flow) and the cost approach (cost to replace the service capacity of an asset or replacement cost). The standard utilizes a fair value hierarchy that prioritizes the inputs to valuation techniques used to measure fair value into three broad levels. The following is a brief description of those three levels:

Level 1: Observable inputs such as quoted prices (unadjusted) in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.
Level 2: Inputs, other than quoted prices that are observable for the asset or liability, either directly or indirectly. These include quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities in active markets and quoted prices for identical or similar assets or liabilities in markets that are not active.
Level 3: Unobservable inputs that reflect the reporting entity's own assumptions.

The following table summarizes the basis used to measure the Company's financial assets (liabilities) at fair value on a recurring basis in the balance sheets at September 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020:
Basis of Fair Value Measurements
Balance at September 30, 2021 Level 1 Level 2 Level 3

The carrying values of the Company's cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable, accounts payable and accrued expenses approximate their fair values because of the short term nature of these instruments. At September 30, 2021, the fair value of the outstanding indebtedness under the Company's 2.625% Senior Notes, 3.00% Senior Notes, 3.20% Senior Notes, 3.37% Senior Notes and other borrowings based on quoted market prices and current market rates for debt with similar credit risk and maturity was approximately $1,248.9 million compared to the carrying value of $1,198.7 million. At December 31, 2020, the fair value of the outstanding indebtedness under the Company's 3.00% Senior Notes, 3.20% Senior Notes, 3.37% Senior Notes, 4.20% Senior Notes and other borrowings based on quoted market prices and current market rates for debt with similar credit risk and maturity was approximately $1,127.6 million compared to the carrying value of $1,049.3 million. These fair value measurements are classified as Level 2 within the fair value hierarchy since they are determined based upon significant inputs observable in the market, including interest rates on recent financing transactions to entities with a credit rating similar to the Company's rating.

14. Leases

The Company leases certain office facilities, warehouses, manufacturing plants, equipment (which includes both office and plant equipment) and vehicles under operating leases. Leases with an initial term of 12 months or less are not recorded on the balance sheet; the Company recognizes lease expense for these leases on a straight-line basis over the lease term.

Certain leases include one or more options to renew. The exercise of lease renewal options is at the Company's sole discretion. The Company does not include renewal periods in any of the leases' terms until the renewal is executed as they are generally not reasonably certain of being exercised. The Company does not have any material purchase options.

Certain of the Company's lease agreements have rental payments that are adjusted periodically for inflation or that are based on usage. The Company's lease agreements do not contain any material residual value guarantees or material restrictive covenants.

Supplemental balance sheet information related to leases as of September 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020 was as follows:

Net amortization (169) (135) (508) (407)
Net periodic cost $ 112 $ 175 $ 334 $ 525

The Company expects to contribute approximately $3.4 million to its defined benefit plans and $1.0 million to its other postretirement benefit plans in 2021. During the first nine months of 2021, the Company contributed a total of $3.3 million to fund these plans.

Effective September 30, 2019, the IDEX Corporation Retirement Plan ("Plan"), a U.S. defined benefit plan, was amended to freeze the accrual of retirement benefits for all participants. This action impacted fewer than 60 participants, as the Plan had been closed to new entrants as of December 31, 2004 and frozen as of December 31, 2005 for all but certain older, longer service participants. Subsequent to the freeze, termination of the Plan was approved in November 2019. Participants were notified in February 2020 and the Plan was terminated in May 2020. During the nine months ended September 30, 2021, the Company settled its remaining obligations under the U.S. pension plan through a combination of lump-sum payments to eligible participants who elected them, and through the purchase of annuities from Legal and General, an A rated third-party insurer. The Company recognized a net loss of $9.7 million, which was recorded within Other expense (income) - net. The net loss consisted of $10.7 million related to previously deferred pension related costs, partially offset by $1.0 million related to an increase in plan assets remaining after the settlement. As of September 30, 2021, the Plan had surplus plan assets of

(unaudited)
approximately $10.9 million, consisting of investments in equities of $1.1 million and fixed income of $9.8 million. These plan assets are included in Other current assets on the Company's Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets and will be used to fund the Company's other retirement benefit plans over the next twelve months.

20. Legal Proceedings

The Company and certain of its subsidiaries are involved in pending and threatened legal, regulatory and other proceedings arising in the ordinary course of business. These proceedings may pertain to matters such as product liability or contract disputes, and may also involve governmental inquiries, inspections, audits or investigations relating to issues such as tax matters, intellectual property, environmental, health and safety issues, governmental regulations, employment and other matters. Although the results of such legal proceedings cannot be predicted with certainty, the Company believes that the ultimate disposition of these matters will not have a material adverse effect, individually or in the aggregate, on the Company's business, financial condition, results of operations or cash flows.

In evaluating whether to accrue for a contingency, the Company considers the facts and circumstances asserted, historical experience, the likelihood of prevailing and the severity of any potential loss. In the second quarter of 2021, the Company recorded a contingent reserve of $3.9 million associated with a Corporate transaction indemnity for a prior divestiture. During the three months ended September 30, 2021, the Company reached and paid a final settlement of $3.5 million.

21. Income Taxes

The Company's provision for income taxes is based upon estimated annual tax rates for the year applied to federal, state and foreign income. The provision for income taxes increased to $35.3 million for the three months ended September 30, 2021 compared to $17.4 million during the same period in 2020. The effective tax rate increased to 23.4% for the three months ended September 30, 2021 compared to 14.4% during the same period in 2020 primarily due to the impact of the finalization of the Global Intangible Low-Tax Income ("GILTI") regulations enacted in the third quarter of 2020 as well as a decrease in the excess tax benefit related to share-based compensation in the current period.

The provision for income taxes increased to $96.0 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 from $63.8 million during the same period in 2020. The effective tax rate increased to 22.5% for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 compared to 18.7% during the same period in 2020 primarily due to the impact of the finalization of the GILTI regulations enacted in the third quarter of 2020 as well as a decrease in the excess tax benefit related to share-based compensation in the current period.

The Company and its subsidiaries file income tax returns in the U.S. federal jurisdiction as well as various state and foreign jurisdictions. Due to the potential for resolution of federal, state and foreign examinations and the expiration of various statutes of limitation, it is reasonably possible that the Company's gross unrecognized tax benefits balance may change within the next twelve months by a range of zero to $0.3 million.

Sales in the third quarter of 2021 were $712.0 million, which was a 23% increasecompared to the same period in 2020. This reflects a 15% increase in organic sales, a net 7% increase from acquisitions (Airtech - June 2021 and ABEL - March 2021) and a1% favorable impact from foreign currency translation.Sales to customers outside the U.S. represented approximately 49%of total sales in the third quarter of 2021 compared to 51% during the same period in 2020.

Sales in the first nine months of 2021 were $2,050.0 million, which was an 18% increase compared to the same period in 2020. This reflects a 12% increase in organic sales, a net 3% increasefrom acquisitions (Airtech - June 2021, ABEL - March 2021 and Flow MD - February 2020) anda 3% favorable impact from foreign currency translation. Sales to customers outside the U.S. represented approximately 52%of total sales in the first nine months of 2021 compared to 50% during the same period in 2020.

Gross profit of $311.6 million in the third quarter of 2021 increased $60.1 million, or 24%, compared to the same period in 2020 and gross margin of43.8% in the third quarter of 2021 increased 50 basis points from 43.3% during the same period in 2020. Gross profit of $910.3 million in the first nine months of 2021 increased $152.0 million, or 20%,compared to the same period in 2020 and gross margin of 44.4% in the first nine months of 2021 increased 70 basis points from 43.7% during the same period in 2020. These increases are a result of higher volume and price capture, partially offset by the fair value inventory step-up charges related to both the ABEL and Airtech acquisitions, inflation and supply chain constraints.

Selling, general and administrative expenses increased to $147.2 million in the third quarter of 2021 from $117.4 million during the same period in 2020 and to $426.7 millionin the first nine months of 2021 from $369.8 million during the same period in 2020.The increasein both comparative periods was primarily due to higher fixed and variable compensation expenses and amortization from both the ABEL and Airtech acquisitions. Additionally, expenses in the first nine months of 2021 include the impact of the settlement for a Corporate transaction indemnity and higher professional fees related to acquisitions as compared to the prior year period. As a percentage of sales, selling, general and administrative expenses were 20.7% for the

third quarter of 2021, up 50basis points compared to 20.2% during the same period in 2020, and 20.8%for the first nine months of 2021, down 50 basis points compared to 21.3% during the same period in 2020.

The Company incurred $3.2 millionand $8.6 million of restructuring expenses and asset impairments in the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021, respectively,primarily related to severance benefits for cost reduction actions consisting of employee reductions as well as asset impairments related to property, plant and equipment resulting from the consolidation of certain facilities. The restructuring expenses in the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020 primarily related to severance benefits for cost reduction actions primarily consisting of employee reductions due to lower demand as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Operating income of $161.2 millionin the third quarter of 2021 was higher than the $131.2 million recorded during the same period in 2020, while operating margin of 22.6% was flat compared with the same period in 2020. Operating income of $475.0 million and operating margin of 23.2% in the first nine months of 2021 were up from the $381.7 million and 22.0%, respectively, recorded during the same period in 2020. The increase in operating income in both comparative periods was driven by higher volume and price capture, partially offset by amortization and the fair value inventory step-up charges related to the ABEL and Airtech acquisitions, inflation, supply chain constraints and targeted increases in discretionary spending.

Other expense (income) - netincreased to $0.6 million of expense in the third quarter of 2021 compared to $0.7 million of income during the same period in 2020, primarily due to$1.2 million of losses on trading securities. Other expense (income) - netwas $17.0 millionof expensein the first nine months of 2021 compared to $7.3 million of expense during the same period in 2020, primarily due toa $9.7 million noncash loss related to the termination of the U.S. pension plan in the current year period. Other expense (income) - netincludes a loss on early debt redemption of $8.6 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 and $8.4 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020.

Interest expense decreased in both comparative periods as a result of lower interest rates on the Senior Notes, partially offset by an increase in the amount of debt outstanding compared to the prior year.

The Company's provision for income taxes is based upon estimated annual tax rates for the year applied to federal, state and foreign income. The provision for income taxes increased to $35.3 millionin the third quarter of 2021 compared to $17.4 million during the same period in 2020. The effective tax rateincreased to 23.4% in the third quarter of 2021 compared to 14.4% during the same period in 2020. The provision for income taxes increasedto $96.0 millionin the first nine months of 2021 compared to $63.8 million during the same period in 2020. The effective tax rate increased to 22.5%in the first nine months of 2021 compared to 18.7% during the same period in 2020. The increase in both comparative periods was primarily due to the impact of the finalization of the GILTI regulations enacted in the third quarter of 2020 as well as a decrease in the excess tax benefit related to share-based compensation in the current period.

Net income attributable to IDEX of $115.7 millionin the third quarter of 2021 increasedfrom $103.8 million during the same period in 2020. Diluted earnings per share of $1.51in the third quarter of 2021 increased $0.14, or 10%,compared to the same period in 2020.

Net income attributable to IDEX of $330.6 millionin the first nine months of 2021 increasedfrom $276.7 million during the same period in 2020. Diluted earnings per share of $4.33in the first nine months of 2021increased $0.69, or 19%, compared to the same period in 2020.

The table below illustrates sales, operating income and EBITDA contributed by each segment on a basis of total segments (not total Company) for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021. Segment operating income and EBITDA exclude unallocated corporate operating expenses of $17.3 million and $14.2 million for the three months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020, respectively, and $59.9 million and $48.9 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020, respectively.

The Company believes that additional borrowings through various financing alternatives remain available, if required.

The Company also has Senior Notes outstanding. For a discussion of the Company's Senior Notes, please see Note 11in the Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements. At September 30, 2021, the Company was in compliance with covenants contained in the Credit Agreement and other long-term debt agreements.

Operating Activities

Cash flows from operating activities for the first nine months of 2021 decreased $5.7 million, or 1%, to $402.2 million compared to the first nine months of 2020 primarily due to unfavorable changes in working capital, partially offset by higher earnings. At September 30, 2021, working capital was $1,114.3 million and the Company's current ratio was 3.4 to 1. At September 30, 2021, the Company's cash and cash equivalents totaled $806.5 million, of which $527.3 million was held outside of the United States. The COVID-19 pandemic (including the emergence of variant strains) has impacted and may continue to impact the Company's operating cash flows through direct and indirect effects on the Company's operations, customers and supply chain. Although the Company has been able to operate through the COVID-19 pandemic with only temporary shutdowns, any future disruptions due to operational shutdowns may impact the Company's ability to operate as well as generate operating cash flow. Based on currently available information and management's current expectations, the Company anticipates that it has sufficient cash on hand and sufficient access to capital to continue to fund operations for at least the next twelve months.

Investing Activities

Cash flows used ininvesting activities for the first nine monthsof 2021 increased by $468.6 million to $624.2 million compared to the same period in 2020, primarily due to higher cash outflows for acquisitions and capital expenditures.

Financing Activities

Cash flows provided byfinancing activities for the first nine months of 2021 were $24.5 millioncompared to $20.8 million used in financing activities during the same period in 2020, primarily due to share repurchases in 2020 that did not reoccur in 2021, partially offset by the redemption of an incremental $50.0 million of Senior Notes as compared to the prior year period and lower proceeds from stock option exercises.

Capital Expenditures

Cash flows from operations were more than adequate to fund capital expenditures of $45.5 millionand $39.4 million in the first nine months of 2021 and 2020, respectively. The Company believes it has sufficient operating cash flow to continue to meet current obligations and invest in planned capital expenditures. Capital expenditures are generally expenditures for machinery and equipment that support growth and improved productivity, tooling, business system technology, replacement of equipment and investments in new facilities. Management believes that the Company has ample capacity in its plants and equipment to meet demand increases for future growth in the intermediate term.

Share Repurchases

On March 17, 2020, the Company's Board of Directors approved an increase of $500.0 million in the authorized level of repurchases of common stock. This approval is in addition to the prior repurchase authorization of the Board of Directors of $300.0 million on December 1, 2015. Repurchases under the program will be funded with future cash flow generation or borrowings available under the Revolving Facility. There were no share repurchases during the nine months ended September 30, 2021. During the nine months ended September 30, 2020, the Company repurchased a total of 876 thousand shares at a cost of $110.3 million. As of September 30, 2021, the amount of share repurchase authorization remaining is $712.0 million.

Non-GAAP Disclosures

Set forth below are reconciliations of Adjusted gross profit, Adjusted operating income, Adjusted net income, Adjusted EPS, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA to the comparable measures of gross profit, operating income, net income and EPS, as determined in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("U.S. GAAP"). The Company has reconciled Adjusted gross profit to Gross profit, Adjusted operating income to Operating income; Adjusted net income to Net income; Adjusted EPS to EPS; and consolidated EBITDA, segment EBITDA, Adjusted consolidated EBITDA and Adjusted segment EBITDA to Net income. The reconciliation of segment EBITDA and Adjusted segment EBITDA to net income was performed on a consolidated basis due to the fact that the Company does not allocate consolidated interest expense or the consolidated provision for income taxes to its segments.

Given the acquisitive nature of the Company, which results in a higher level of amortization expense from recently acquired businesses, management uses EBITDA as an internal operating metric to provide another representation of the businesses' performance across the Company's three segments and for enterprise valuation purposes. Management believes that EBITDA is useful to investors as an indicator of the strength and performance of the Company and a way to evaluate and compare operating performance and value companies within the Company's industry. Management believes that EBITDA margin is useful for the same reason as EBITDA. EBITDA is also used to calculate certain financial covenants, as discussed in Note 11in the Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements in Part I, Item 1, "Financial Statements" such as EBITDA interest coverage, which is EBITDA divided by consolidated interest expense. In addition, this report presents Adjusted EBITDA, which is EBITDA adjusted for items that are not reflective of ongoing operations, such as fair value inventory step-up charges, restructuring expenses and asset impairments, the impact of the settlementfor a Corporate transaction indemnity, the loss on early debt redemption and the noncash loss related to the termination of the U.S. pension plan, and Adjusted EBITDA interest coverage, which is Adjusted EBITDA divided by consolidated interest expense. Management believes that Adjusted EBITDA is useful as a performance indicator of ongoing operations. The Company believes that Adjusted EBITDA is also useful to some investors as an indicator of the strength and performance of the Company and its segments' ongoing business operations and a way to evaluate and compare operating performance and value companies within the Company's industry. The definition of Adjusted EBITDA used here may differ from that used by other companies.

This report references organic sales, a non-GAAP measure, that refers to sales from continuing operations calculated according to U.S. GAAP but excludes (1) the impact of foreign currency translation and (2) sales from acquired or divested businesses during the first 12 months of ownership or prior to divestiture. The portion of sales attributable to foreign currency translation is calculated as the difference between (a) the period-to-period change in organic sales and (b) the period-to-period change in organic sales after applying prior period foreign exchange rates to the current year period. Management believes that reporting organic sales provides useful information to investors by helping to identify underlying growth trends in the Company's business and facilitating easier comparisons of the Company's revenue performance with prior and future periods and to its peers. The Company excludes the effect of foreign currency translation from organic sales because foreign currency translation is not under management's control, is subject to volatility and can obscure underlying business trends. The Company excludes the effect of acquisitions and divestitures because they can obscure underlying business trends and make comparisons of long-term performance difficult due to the varying nature, size and number of transactions from period to period and between the Company and its peers.

Table of Content

Organic sales have been reconciled to net sales and EBITDA has been reconciled to net income in Item 2 under the heading "Non-GAAP Disclosures." The reconciliation of segment EBITDA to net income was performed on a consolidated basis due to the fact that the Company does not allocate consolidated interest expense or the consolidated provision for income taxes to its segments.

Management uses Adjusted gross profit, Adjusted operating income, Adjusted net income, Adjusted EPS and Adjusted EBITDA as metrics by which to measure performance of the Company since they exclude items that are not reflective of ongoing operations, such as fair value inventory step-up charges, restructuring expenses and asset impairments, the impact of the settlementfor a Corporate transaction indemnity, the loss on early debt redemption and the noncash loss related to the termination of the U.S. pension plan. Management also supplements its U.S. GAAP financial statements with adjusted information to provide investors with greater insight, transparency and a more comprehensive understanding of the information used by management in its financial and operational decision making.

In addition to measuring the Company's cash flow generation and usage based upon the operating, investing and financing classifications included in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows, the Company also measures free cash flow (a non-GAAP measure) which represents net cash provided by operating activities minus capital expenditures. The Company believes that free cash flow is an important measure of operating performance because it provides management a measurement of cash generated from operations that is available for mandatory payment obligations and investment opportunities, such as funding acquisitions, paying dividends, repaying debt and repurchasing the Company's common stock.

The non-GAAP financial measures disclosed by the Company should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. The financial results prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP and the reconciliations from these results should be carefully evaluated.

Critical Accounting Policies

As discussed in the Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020, the preparation of financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires management to make estimates and judgments that affect the reported amount of assets and liabilities, disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities, and reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates. There have been no changes to the Company's critical accounting policies described in the Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020.

Item 3.Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk

The Company is subject to market risk associated with changes in foreign currency exchange rates and interest rates. The Company may, from time to time, enter into foreign currency forward contracts and interest rate swaps on its debt when it believes there is a financial advantage in doing so. A treasury risk management policy, adopted by the Board of Directors, describes the procedures and controls over derivative financial and commodity instruments, including foreign currency forward
49
Table of Content
contracts and interest rate swaps. Under the policy, the Company does not use financial or commodity derivative instruments for trading purposes, and the use of these instruments is subject to strict approvals by senior officers. Typically, the use of derivative instruments is limited to foreign currency forward contracts and interest rate swaps on the Company's outstanding long-term debt. As of September 30, 2021, the Company did not have any derivative instruments outstanding.

Foreign Currency Exchange Rates

The Company's foreign currency exchange rate risk is limited principally to the Euro, Swiss Franc, British Pound, Canadian Dollar, Indian Rupee, Chinese Renminbi and Swedish Krona. The Company manages its foreign exchange risk principally through invoicing customers in the same currency as the source of products. The effect of transaction gains and losses is reported within Other expense (income) - net in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations.

Interest Rate Fluctuation

The Company does not have significant interest rate exposure due to all of the $1,200.1 millionof debt outstanding as of September 30, 2021 being fixed rate debt.

Item 4.Controls and Procedures

The Company maintains disclosure controls and procedures that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in the Company's Exchange Act reports is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC's rules and forms, and that such information is accumulated and communicated to the Company's management, including its Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, as appropriate, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

As required by SEC Rule 13a-15(b), the Company carried out an evaluation, under the supervision and with the participation of the Company's management, including the Company's Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, of the effectiveness of the design and operation of the Company's disclosure controls and procedures as of the end of the period covered by this report. Based on the foregoing, the Company's Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer concluded that the Company's disclosure controls and procedures were effective as of September 30, 2021.

There has been no change in the Company's internal control over financial reporting during the Company's most recent fiscal quarter that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, the Company's internal control over financial reporting.

PART II. OTHER INFORMATION
Item 1. Legal Proceedings

The Company and its subsidiaries are party to legal proceedings arising in the ordinary course of business as described in Note 20in Part I, Item 1, "Legal Proceedings," and such disclosure is incorporated by reference into this Item 1, "Legal Proceedings." In addition, the Company and six of its subsidiaries are presently named as defendants in a number of lawsuits claiming various asbestos-related personal injuries, allegedly as a result of exposure to products manufactured with components that contained asbestos. These components were acquired from third party suppliers and were not manufactured by the Company or any of the defendant subsidiaries. To date, the majority of the Company's settlements and legal costs, except for costs of coordination, administration, insurance investigation and a portion of defense costs, have been covered in full by insurance, subject to applicable deductibles. However, the Company cannot predict whether and to what extent insurance will be available to continue to cover these settlements and legal costs, or how insurers may respond to claims that are tendered to them. Asbestos-related claims have been filed in jurisdictions throughout the United States and the United Kingdom. Most of the claims resolved to date have been dismissed without payment. The balance of the claims have been settled for various immaterial amounts. Only one case has been tried, resulting in a verdict for the Company's business unit. No provision has been made in the financial statements of the Company, other than for insurance deductibles in the ordinary course, and the Company does not currently believe the asbestos-related claims will have a material adverse effect on the Company's business, financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

In evaluating whether to accrue for losses associated with legal or other contingencies, the Company takes into consideration factors such as the facts and circumstances asserted, historical experience, the likelihood of prevailing and the severity of any potential loss. In the second quarterof 2021, the Company recorded a contingent reserve of $3.9 million associated with a Corporate transaction indemnity for a prior divestiture. During the three months ended September 30, 2021, the Company reached and paid a final settlement of $3.5 million.
