Based on Company estimates.

“Demand for larger agricultural equipment continues to be elevated with healthy farm income expected across the major agricultural production regions, and easing supply-chain constraints are enabling industry production to keep pace with demand,” stated Hansotia. “Commodity prices remain at supportive levels, but the recent volatility, due to uncertainty of current year crop production in the northern hemisphere, has influenced farmer sentiment of late.”

Global industry production and retail tractor sales were down modestly in the first six months of 2023 compared to last year's elevated levels with lower sales of smaller equipment more than offsetting increased sales of larger equipment. Industry retail sales for tractors in North America were down approximately 2% in the first six months of 2023 compared to last year. The decline was driven by weaker sales in smaller tractors partially offset by improved sales of high-horsepower tractors, which increased approximately 13% in the first six months of 2023 compared to the same period in 2022. North America industry retail tractor demand for 2023 is expected to be relatively flat compared to 2022. Industry retail sales for combines in North America increased significantly in the first six months of 2023 compared to 2022 due mainly to improving supply chains.

In Western Europe, industry retail tractor sales decreased approximately 1% in the first six months of 2023 compared to strong levels in the same period of 2022. Farmer sentiment in the region continues to be negatively affected by the conflict in Ukraine and input cost inflation. Significant declines in Italy and Spain were mostly offset by higher industry sales in Germany, the United Kingdom and France. Forecasts for healthy farm income in Western Europe are expected to support relatively flat retail demand for equipment in 2023. Industry retail sales for combines in Western Europe increased significantly in the first six months of 2023 compared to 2022 due to supply chain constraints experienced in 2022.

South American industry tractor retail sales decreased 3% during the first six months of 2023 compared to 2022 levels. Retail demand in Brazil was negatively affected by the depletion of the subsidized loan program prior to the June 30 fiscal year end. Healthy farm income, supportive exchange rates and continued expansion in planted acreage in Brazil are driving increased investments in high-tech farm equipment resulting in an outlook of relatively flat demand for the South American tractor industry in 2023 compared to strong levels last year.

North America

North American net sales grew 33.8% in the first six months of 2023 compared to the same period of 2022, excluding the negative impact of currency translation. The growth resulted primarily from increased sales of high-horsepower tractors, combines and application equipment along with the positive effects of pricing to mitigate inflationary cost pressures. Results in the first half of 2022 were negatively impacted by a cyberattack. Income from operations for the first six months of 2023 was approximately $133.5 million higher with operating margins expanding over 500 basis points compared to the same period in 2022. Operating income benefited from higher sales and production, positive net pricing and a favorable sales mix.

South America

Net sales in the South American region increased 26.7% in the first six months of 2023 compared to the same period of 2022, excluding the impact of unfavorable currency translation. Strong sales growth in Brazil was partially offset by lower sales in Argentina. Increased sales of high horsepower, higher margin tractors, as well as increased sales of Momentum planters and favorable pricing drove most of the increase. Income from operations in the first six months of 2023 increased by approximately $89.3 million compared to the same period in 2022, and operating margins were 20.0%. The improved South America results reflect the benefit of higher sales and production as well as a favorable sales mix.

Europe/Middle East

Europe/Middle East net sales increased 33.2% in the first six months of 2023 compared to the same period in 2022, excluding unfavorable currency translation. The improvement was driven by increased sales of high-horsepower tractors, utility tractors and parts along with favorable pricing. Strong growth in Germany, Turkey and France accounted for most of the increase. Results in the first half of 2022 were negatively impacted by a cyberattack. Income from operations improved $211.1 million and operating margins expanded 320 basis points in the first six months of 2023, compared to the same period in 2022 as a result of higher sales and production.

Asia/Pacific/Africa

Net sales in Asia/Pacific/Africa increased 4.9%, excluding the negative impact of currency translation, in the first six months of 2023 compared to the same period in 2022. Higher sales in Australia and China were partially offset by lower sales in Japan. Income from operations declined by approximately $25.7 million in the first six months of 2023 compared to the same period in 2022 due primarily to a weaker mix of sales and higher logistics costs.

Outlook

AGCO’s net sales for 2023 are expected to be approximately $14.7 billion, reflecting improved sales volumes and pricing. Gross and operating margins are projected to improve from 2022 levels, reflecting the impact of higher sales and production volumes as well as pricing and a favorable sales mix. These improvements are expected to fund increases in engineering and other technology investments to support AGCO’s precision agriculture and digital initiatives. Based on these assumptions, 2023 reported earnings per share are targeted at approximately $14.82 and adjusted earnings per share at approximately $15.25 (1) .

Safe Harbor Statement

Statements that are not historical facts, including the projections of earnings per share, production levels, sales, industry demand, market conditions, commodity prices, currency translation, farm income levels, margin levels, strategy, investments in product and technology development, new product introductions, restructuring and other cost reduction initiatives, production volumes, tax rates and general economic conditions, are forward-looking and subject to risks that could cause actual results to differ materially from those suggested by the statements. The following are among the factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from the results discussed in or implied by the forward-looking statements.

  • Our financial results depend entirely upon the agricultural industry, and factors that adversely affect the agricultural industry generally, including declines in the general economy, adverse weather, tariffs, increases in farm input costs, lower commodity prices, lower farm income and changes in the availability of credit for our retail customers, will adversely affect us.
  • A majority of our sales and manufacturing takes place outside the United States, and many of our sales involve products that are manufactured in one country and sold in a different country. As a result, we are exposed to risks related to foreign laws, taxes and tariffs, trade restrictions, economic conditions, labor supply and relations, political conditions and governmental policies. These risks may delay or reduce our realization of value from our international operations. Among these risks are the uncertain consequences of Brexit and tariffs imposed on exports to and imports from China.
  • We cannot predict or control the impact of the conflict in Ukraine on our business. Already it has resulted in reduced sales in Ukraine as farmers have experienced economic distress, difficulties in harvesting and delivering their products, as well as general uncertainty. There is a potential for natural gas shortages, as well as shortages in other energy sources, throughout Europe, which could negatively impact our production in Europe both directly and through interrupting the supply of parts and components that we use. It is unclear how long these conditions will continue, or whether they will worsen, and what the ultimate impact on our performance will be. In addition, AGCO sells products in, and purchases parts and components from, other regions where there could be hostilities. Any hostilities likely would adversely impact our performance.
  • Most retail sales of the products that we manufacture are financed, either by our joint ventures with Rabobank or by a bank or other private lender. Our joint ventures with Rabobank, which are controlled by Rabobank and are dependent upon Rabobank for financing as well, finance approximately 50% of the retail sales of our tractors and combines in the markets where the joint ventures operate. Any difficulty by Rabobank to continue to provide that financing, or any business decision by Rabobank as the controlling member not to fund the business or particular aspects of it (for example, a particular country or region), would require the joint ventures to find other sources of financing (which may be difficult to obtain), or us to find another source of retail financing for our customers, or our customers would be required to utilize other retail financing providers. As a result of the recent economic downturn, financing for capital equipment purchases generally has become more difficult in certain regions and in some cases, can be expensive to obtain. To the extent that financing is not available or available only at unattractive prices, our sales would be negatively impacted. In addition, Rabobank also is the lead lender in our revolving credit facility and term loans and for many years has been an important financing partner for us. Any interruption or other challenges in that relationship would require us to obtain alternative financing, which could be difficult.
  • Both AGCO and our finance joint ventures have substantial accounts receivable from dealers and end customers, and we would be adversely impacted if the collectability of these receivables was less than optimal; this collectability is dependent upon the financial strength of the farm industry, which in turn is dependent upon the general economy and commodity prices, as well as several of the other factors listed in this section.
  • We have experienced substantial and sustained volatility with respect to currency exchange rate and interest rate changes, which can adversely affect our reported results of operations and the competitiveness of our products.
  • Our success depends on the introduction of new products, particularly engines that comply with emission requirements and sustainable smart farming technology, which require substantial expenditures; there is no certainty that we can develop the necessary technology or that the technology that we develop will be attractive to farmers or available at competitive prices.
  • Our expansion plans in emerging markets, including establishing a greater manufacturing and marketing presence and growing our use of component suppliers, could entail significant risks.
  • Our business increasingly is subject to regulations relating to privacy and data protection, and if we violate any of those regulations, or otherwise are the victim of a cyberattack, we could be subject to significant claims, penalties and damages.
  • Attacks through ransomware and other means are rapidly increasing, and in May 2022 we learned that we had been subject to a cyberattack. We continue to review and improve our safeguards to minimize our exposure to future attacks. However, there always will be the potential of the risk that a cyberattack will be successful and will disrupt our business, either through shutting down our operations, destroying data, exfiltrating data or otherwise.
  • We depend on suppliers for components, parts and raw materials for our products, and any failure by our suppliers to provide products as needed, or by us to promptly address supplier issues, will adversely impact our ability to timely and efficiently manufacture and sell products. Recently suppliers of several key parts and components have not been able to meet our demand and we have had to decrease our production levels. In addition, the potential of natural gas shortages in Europe, as well as predicted overall shortages in other energy sources, could also negatively impact our production and that of our supply chain in the future. It is unclear when these supply chain disruptions will be restored or what the ultimate impact on production, and consequently sales, will be.
  • Any increase in COVID-19, or other future pandemics, could negatively impact our business through reduced sales, facilities closures, higher absentee rates, and reduced production at both our plants and the plants that supply us with parts and components. In addition, logistical and transportation-related issues and similar problems may also arise.
  • We recently have experienced significant inflation in a range of costs, including for parts and components, shipping, and energy. While we have been able to pass along most of those costs through increased prices, there can be no assurance that we will be able to continue to do so. If we are not, it will adversely impact our performance.
  • We face significant competition, and if we are unable to compete successfully against other agricultural equipment manufacturers, we would lose customers and our net sales and performance would decline.
  • We have a substantial amount of indebtedness, and, as a result, we are subject to certain restrictive covenants and payment obligations that may adversely affect our ability to operate and expand our business.

Further information concerning these and other factors is included in AGCO’s filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including its Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2022 and subsequent Form 10-Qs. AGCO disclaims any obligation to update any forward-looking statements except as required by law.

3. RESTRUCTURING EXPENSES

In recent years, the Company announced and initiated several actions to rationalize employee headcount in various manufacturing facilities and administrative offices located in the U.S., Europe, South America, Africa and China, as well as the rationalization of its grain and protein business, in order to reduce costs in response to fluctuating global market demand. As of December 31, 2022, the Company recorded approximately $6.8 million of accrued severance and other costs related to such rationalizations. During the three and six months ended June 30, 2023, the Company recorded an additional $6.1 million and $7.5 million, respectively, of severance and other related costs associated with these rationalizations in connection with the termination of approximately 55 employees, and paid approximately $1.7 million and $2.7 million, respectively, of severance costs. The remaining $11.2 million of accrued severance and other related costs as of June 30, 2023, inclusive of approximately $0.4 million of negative foreign currency translation impacts, are expected to be paid primarily during 2023.

8. SEGMENT REPORTING

The Company’s four reportable segments distribute a full range of agricultural equipment and related replacement parts. The Company evaluates segment performance primarily based on income from operations. Sales for each segment are based on the location of the third-party customer. The Company’s selling, general and administrative expenses and engineering expenses are generally charged to each segment based on the region and division where the expenses are incurred. As a result, the components of income from operations for one segment may not be comparable to another segment. Segment results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2023 and 2022 are as follows (in millions):
