Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements

 

Note 1. Basis of Financial Statement Presentation

 

The condensed consolidated financial statements contained herein are unaudited and have been prepared from the books and records of KEMET Corporation and its subsidiaries (“KEMET” or the “Company”). In the opinion of management, the condensed consolidated financial statements reflect all adjustments, consisting only of normal recurring adjustments, necessary for a fair presentation of the results for the interim periods. The condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with the instructions to Form 10-Q, and therefore, do not include all information and footnotes necessary for a complete presentation of financial position, results of operations, and cash flows in conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“U.S. GAAP”). Although the Company believes that the disclosures are adequate to make the information presented not misleading, it is suggested that these condensed consolidated financial statements be read in conjunction with the audited financial statements and notes thereto included in the Company’s fiscal year ended March 31, 2011, Form 10-K (the “Company’s 2011 Annual Report”).

 

Net sales and operating results for the three and nine months ended December 31, 2011 are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the full year.  The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its wholly-owned subsidiaries. In consolidation, all significant intercompany amounts and transactions have been eliminated.  Certain prior year amounts have been reclassified to conform to current year presentation.

 

The significant accounting policies followed by the Company are presented in the Company’s 2011 Annual Report.

 

Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements

 

New accounting standards adopted

 

There were no accounting standards adopted in the nine month period ended December 31, 2011.

 

New accounting standards issued but not yet adopted

 

In June 2011, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) 2011-05, Presentation of Comprehensive Income.  ASU 2011-05 revises the manner in which entities present comprehensive income in their financial statements.  The new guidance removes the presentation options in Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 220, Comprehensive Income, and requires entities to report components of comprehensive income in either (1) a continuous statement of comprehensive income or (2) two separate but consecutive statements.  The ASU does not change the items that must be reported in other comprehensive income.  In December 2011, the FASB issued ASU 2011-12, Comprehensive Income.  ASU 2011-12 defers the requirement in ASU 2011-05 that companies present reclassification adjustments for each component of AOCI in both OCI and net income on the face of the financial statements.  ASU 2011-12 requires companies to continue to present amounts reclassified out of AOCI on the face of the financial statements or disclosed in the notes to the financial statements.  ASU 2011-12 also defers the requirement to report reclassification adjustments in interim periods and requires companies to present only total comprehensive income in either a single continuous statement or two consecutive statements in interim periods.  ASU 2011-05 and ASU 2011-12 will be effective for fiscal years and interim reporting periods within those years beginning after December 15, 2011.

 

In September 2011, the FASB issued ASU 2011-08, Guidance on Testing Goodwill for Impairment.  ASU 2011-08 gives entities testing goodwill for impairment the option of performing a qualitative assessment before calculating the fair value of a reporting unit in Step 1 of the goodwill impairment test.  If entities determine, on the basis of qualitative factors, that the fair value of a reporting unit is more likely than not less than the carrying amount, the two-step impairment test would be required.  Otherwise, further testing would not be needed.  ASU 2011-08 will be effective for fiscal and interim reporting periods within those years beginning after December 15, 2011.

 

The adoption of these accounting standards will not have a material effect on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.  There are currently no other accounting standards that have been issued that will have a significant impact on the Company’s financial position, results of operations or cash flows upon adoption.

 

Restricted Cash

 

A guarantee was issued by a European bank on behalf of the Company in August 2006 in conjunction with the establishment of a Value-Added Tax (“VAT”) registration in The Netherlands.  The bank guarantee is in the amount of EUR 1.5 million ($1.9 million). A deposit was placed with a European bank for EUR 1.7 million ($2.1 million). The deposit is in KEMET’s name, and KEMET receives any interest earned by this deposit. However, the deposit is pledged to the European bank, and the bank can use the

money if a valid claim against the bank guarantee is made. The bank guarantee will remain valid until it is discharged by the beneficiary.  Restricted cash of $2.1 million and $2.3 million is included in the line item “Other assets” on the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets as of December 31, 2011 and March 31, 2011, respectively.

 

Warrant Liability

 

Concurrent with the consummation of the tender offer as discussed in Note 2, “Debt”, the Company issued K Financing, LLC (“K Financing”) a warrant (the “Platinum Warrant”) to purchase up to 26.8 million shares of the Company’s common stock, subject to certain adjustments, representing, at the time of issuance, approximately 49.9% of the Company’s outstanding common stock on a post-Platinum Warrant basis. The Platinum Warrant was subsequently transferred to K Equity, LLC (“K Equity”). The Platinum Warrant was exercisable at a purchase price of $1.05 per share.

 

On December 20, 2010, in connection with a secondary offering in which K Equity was the selling security holder, K Equity exercised a portion of the Platinum Warrant representing the right to purchase 10.9 million shares of the Company’s common stock to the underwriters of the secondary offering, who exercised their full portion of the warrant at a price of $12.80 per share in a cashless exercise and received a net settlement of 10.0 million shares of the Company’s common stock.  These shares were sold as part of the secondary offering and KEMET did not receive any of the proceeds from the transaction.  K Equity retained the remaining portion of the warrant.

 

On May 31, 2011, K Equity sold a portion of the Platinum Warrant to Deutsche Bank Securities Inc., in connection with the offering of 7.0 million shares of the Company’s common stock, at a public offering price of $14.60 per share.  This transaction resulted in a 7.5 million share reduction to the outstanding warrants due to K Equity’s cashless exercise.  K Equity retains the remaining portion of the warrant, representing the right to purchase 8.4 million shares of the Company’s common stock.

 

Fair Value Measurement

 

The Company utilizes three levels of inputs to measure the fair value of (a) nonfinancial assets and liabilities that are recognized or disclosed at fair value in the Company’s consolidated financial statements on a recurring basis (at least annually) and (b) all financial assets and liabilities. Fair value is defined as the exchange price that would be received for an asset or paid to transfer a liability (an exit price) in the principal or most advantageous market for the asset or liability in an orderly transaction between market participants on the measurement date. Valuation techniques used to measure fair value must maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs.

 

The first two inputs are considered observable and the last is considered unobservable. The levels of inputs are as follows:

 

·                  Level 1—Quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.

 

·                  Level 2—Inputs other than Level 1 that are observable, either directly or indirectly, such as quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities, quoted prices in markets that are not active, or other inputs that are observable or can be corroborated by observable market data for substantially the full term of the assets or liabilities.

 

·                  Level 3—Unobservable inputs that are supported by little or no market activity and that are significant to the fair value of the assets or liabilities.

 

Assets measured at fair value on a recurring basis as of December 31, 2011 and March 31, 2011 are as follows (amounts in thousands):

Revenue Recognition

 

A portion of sales is related to products designed to meet customer specific requirements. These products typically have stricter tolerances making them useful to the specific customer requesting the product and to customers with similar or less stringent requirements. Products with customer specific requirements are tested and approved by the customer before the Company mass produces and ships the product. The Company recognizes revenue when title to the products transfers to the customer.

 

A portion of sales is made to distributors under agreements allowing certain rights of return and price protection on unsold merchandise held by distributors. The Company’s distributor policy includes inventory price protection and “ship-from-stock and debit” (“SFSD”) programs common in the industry.

 

The SFSD program provides a mechanism for the distributor to meet a competitive price after obtaining authorization from the Company’s local sales office. This program allows the distributor to ship its higher-priced inventory and debit the Company for the difference between KEMET’s list price and the lower authorized price for that specific transaction. Management analyzes historical SFSD activity to determine the SFSD exposure on the global distributor inventory at the balance sheet date.  The establishment of these reserves is recognized as a component of the line item “Net sales” on the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations, while the associated reserves are included in the line item “Accounts receivable, net” on the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets.

 

The Company provides a limited warranty to customers that the Company’s products meet certain specifications. The warranty period is generally limited to one year, and the Company’s liability under the warranty is generally limited to a replacement of the product or refund of the purchase price of the product. Warranty costs as a percentage of net sales were less than 1% for the quarters and nine month periods ended December 31, 2011 and 2010. The Company recognizes warranty costs when they are both probable and reasonably estimable.

 

Use of Estimates and Assumptions

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires management to make estimates, assumptions, and judgments. Estimates and assumptions are based on historical data and other assumptions that management believes are reasonable.  These estimates and assumptions affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements. In addition, they affect the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period.

 

The Company’s judgments are based on management’s assessment as to the effect certain estimates, assumptions, or future trends or events may have on the financial condition and results of operations reported in the unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements. It is important that readers of these unaudited financial statements understand that actual results could differ from these estimates, assumptions, and judgments.

10.5% Senior Notes

 

On May 5, 2010, the Company completed a private placement of $230.0 million in aggregate principal amount of the Company’s 10.5% Senior Notes due 2018 (the “10.5% Senior Notes”).  The private placement of the 10.5% Senior Notes resulted in proceeds to the Company of $222.2 million. The Company used a portion of the proceeds of the private placement to repay all of the outstanding indebtedness under a credit facility with K Financing, a EUR 60 million credit facility and a EUR 35 million credit facility with UniCredit Corporate Banking S.pA. (“UniCredit”) and a term loan with a subsidiary of Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. The Company used a portion of the remaining proceeds to fund a previously announced tender offer to purchase $40.5 million in aggregate principal amount of the 2.25% Convertible Senior Notes and to pay costs incurred in connection with the private placement, the tender offer and the foregoing repayments. Debt issuance costs related to the 10.5% Senior Notes, net of amortization, were $5.6 million as of December 31, 2011; these costs are being amortized over the term of the 10.5% Senior Notes.

 

On October 26, 2010, the Company filed a Form S-4 to offer, in exchange for the outstanding 10.5% Senior Notes due 2018 (“Old Notes”), up to $230.0 million in aggregate principal amount of 10.5% Senior Notes due 2018 and the guarantees thereof which had been registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended. The Form S-4 was declared effective on December 14, 2010 and on January 13, 2011 the Company completed the exchange for all of the Old Notes.

 

The Company had interest payable related to the 10.5% Senior Notes included in the line item “Accrued expenses” on its Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets of $4.0 million and $10.1 million at December 31, 2011 and March 31, 2011, respectively.

 

Revolving Line of Credit

 

On September 30, 2010, KEMET Electronics Corporation (“KEC”) and KEMET Electronics Marketing (S) Pte Ltd. (“KEMET Singapore”) (each a “Borrower” and, collectively, the “Borrowers”) entered into a Loan and Security Agreement (the “Loan and Security Agreement”), with Bank of America, N.A, as the administrative agent and the initial lender. The Loan and Security Agreement provides a $50 million revolving line of credit, which is bifurcated into a U.S. facility (for which KEC is the Borrower) and a Singapore facility (for which KEMET Singapore is the Borrower).  The size of the U.S. facility and Singapore facility can fluctuate as long as the Singapore facility does not exceed $30 million and the total facility does not exceed $50 million.  A portion of the U.S. facility and of the Singapore facility can be used to issue letters of credit.  The facilities expire on September 30, 2014.

 

Debt issuance costs related to the Loan and Security Agreement, net of amortization, were $1.0 million and $1.3 million as of December 31, 2011 and March 31, 2011, respectively.  These costs are being amortized over the term of the Loan and Security Agreement.  There were no borrowings against the Loan and Security Agreement as of December 31, 2011 or March 31, 2011.

Convertible Notes

 

In November 2006, the Company sold and issued its 2.25% Convertible Senior Notes due 2026 (the “Convertible Notes”) which are unsecured obligations and rank equally with the Company’s existing and future unsubordinated and unsecured obligations and are junior to any of the Company’s future secured obligations to the extent of the value of the collateral securing such obligations. In connection with the issuance and sale of the Convertible Notes, the Company entered into an indenture (the “Convertible Notes Indenture”) dated as of November 1, 2006, with Wilmington Trust Company, as trustee.

 

The Convertible Notes bore interest at a rate of 2.25% per annum, payable in cash semi-annually in arrears on each May 15 and November 15. The Convertible Notes were convertible into (i) cash in an amount equal to the lesser of the principal amount of the Convertible Notes and the conversion value of the Convertible Notes on the conversion date and (ii) cash or shares of the Company’s common stock (“Common Stock”) or a combination of cash and shares of the Common Stock, at the Company’s option, to the extent the conversion value at that time exceeded the principal amount of the Convertible Notes, at any time prior to the close of business on the business day immediately preceding the maturity date of the Convertible Notes, unless the Company had redeemed or purchased the Convertible Notes, subject to certain conditions. The conversion rate was 34.364 shares of common stock per $1,000 principal amount of the Convertible Notes, which represented a conversion price of approximately $29.10 per share, subject to adjustments.

 

The terms of the Convertible Notes were governed by the Convertible Notes Indenture. The Convertible Notes were to mature on November 15, 2026 unless earlier redeemed, repurchased or converted. The Company was entitled to redeem the Convertible Notes for cash, either in whole or in part, any time after November 20, 2011 at a redemption price equal to 100% of the principal amount of the Convertible Notes to be redeemed plus accrued and unpaid interest, including additional interest, if any, up to but not including the date of redemption. In addition, holders of the Convertible Notes had the right to require the Company to repurchase for cash all or a portion of their Convertible Notes on November 15, 2011, 2016 and 2021, at a repurchase price equal to 100% of the principal amount of the Convertible Notes to be repurchased plus accrued and unpaid interest, if any, in each case, up to but not including, the date of repurchase.

 

On November 15, 2011, holders of the Convertible Notes exercised their right to require the Company to repurchase their Convertible Notes, as such, $36.5 million of Convertible Notes were extinguished at 100% of the principal amount of the Convertible Notes plus accrued and unpaid interest.

 

On May 17, 2010, $40.5 million in aggregate principal amount of the Convertible Notes was extinguished.  The extinguishment resulted in $1.6 million loss on early extinguishment of debt. The calculation of the loss is as follows (amounts in thousands):

Platinum Credit Facility

 

On May 5, 2009, the Company executed a credit facility with K Financing, an affiliate of Platinum Equity Capital Partners II, L.P. (the “Platinum Credit Facility”). The Platinum Credit Facility consisted of a term loan of $37.8 million (“Platinum Term Loan”), a line of credit loan (“Platinum Line of Credit Loan”) that could be borrowed from time to time (but not reborrowed after being repaid) of up to $12.5 million and a working capital loan (“Platinum Working Capital Loan”) of up to $12.5 million. On May 5, 2010, the Company applied a portion of the proceeds of the 10.5% Senior Notes to extinguish the Platinum Term Loan, the Platinum Line of Credit Loan, and the Platinum Working Capital Loan.  The extinguishment of the Platinum Credit Facility resulted in a $33.3 million loss on early extinguishment of debt due to the significant debt discount allocated to the Platinum Credit Facility upon issuance.

Note 3. Impairment Charges

 

During the third quarter of fiscal year 2012, the Company incurred impairment charges totaling $15.8 million related to its Tantalum Business Group (“Tantalum”).  Due to customer demands for lower Equivalent Series Resistance (“ESR”) capacitors the Company evaluated the costs it would need to incur in order to modify the product line in Evora, Portugal to enable it to produce lower ESR capacitors.  Based on this evaluation, the Company has idled equipment with a net carrying value of $15.8 million and plans to dispose of the equipment.  The impairment amount of $15.8 million was the carrying amount of the equipment less the scrap value net of disposal costs.  The impairment charge is recorded on the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations line item “Write down of long-lived assets” in the three and nine months ended December 31, 2011.

Table of Contents

 

includes implementing programs to make the Company more competitive, removing excess capacity, moving production to lower cost locations and eliminating unnecessary costs throughout the Company.  Restructuring charges in the nine months ended December 31, 2011 relate to this plan and are primarily comprised of termination benefits of $6.1 million related to facility closures in Italy that will commence during fiscal year 2013 and the Company incurred charges of $4.5 million to participate in a plan to save labor costs whereby a company may temporarily “lay off” employees while the government continues to pay their wages for a certain period of time.  These charges are a continuation of the Company’s efforts to restructure its manufacturing operations within Europe, primarily within Film and Electrolytic. Construction has commenced on a new manufacturing facility in Pontecchio, Italy, that will allow the closure and consolidation of multiple manufacturing operations located in Italy.  In addition, the Company incurred $1.2 million in personnel reduction costs primarily due to headcount reductions in the Mexican operations of Tantalum.  In addition to these personnel reduction costs, the Company incurred manufacturing relocation costs of $1.6 million for relocation of equipment to China and Mexico.

 

Nine months Ended December 31, 2010

 

Restructuring expenses in the nine months ended December 31, 2010 are primarily comprised of manufacturing relocation costs of $4.3 million for relocation of equipment from various plants to Mexico and China as well as a distribution center relocation project.  In addition, the Company incurred $0.9 million in personnel reduction costs due primarily to headcount reductions for twelve individuals at the upper management or executive level related to the Company’s initiative to reduce overhead within the Company as a whole.

Note 6. Goodwill and Intangible Assets

 

On June 13, 2011, the Company completed its acquisition of Cornell Dubilier Foil, LLC (whose name was subsequently changed to KEMET Foil Manufacturing, LLC), a Tennessee based manufacturer of etched foils utilized as a core component in the manufacture of aluminum electrolytic capacitors.  The purchase price was $15 million plus or minus an adjustment amount, of which $11.6 million (net of cash received) was paid at closing and $1.0 million is to be paid on each of the first, second and third anniversaries of the closing date.  The Company recorded goodwill of $1.1 million and amortizable intangibles of $1.7 million.  The allocation of the purchase price to specific assets and liabilities was based on the relative fair value of all assets and liabilities.  Factors contributing to the purchase price which resulted in the goodwill (which is tax deductible) include the trained workforce. Pro forma results are not presented because the acquisition was not material.

In fiscal year 2012, the Company expects to contribute up to $1.9 million to the pension plans of which the Company has contributed $0.8 million as of December 31, 2011.  The Company’s policy is to pay benefits as costs are incurred for the postretirement benefit plans.

 

Note 9. Stock-based Compensation

 

Stock Options

 

At December 31, 2011, the Company had four stock option plans that reserved shares of common stock for issuance to executives and key employees: the 1992 Key Employee Stock Option Plan, the 1995 Executive Stock Option Plan, the 2004 Long-Term Equity Incentive Plan (collectively, the “Prior Plans”) and the 2011 Omnibus Equity Incentive Plan (the “2011 Incentive Plan”). All of these plans were approved by the Company’s stockholders. The 2011 Incentive Plan has authorized the grant of up to 4.8 million shares of the Company’s common stock, which is comprised of 4.0 million shares under the new plan and 0.8 million shares which remained under the Prior Plans. The 2011 Incentive Plan authorizes the Company to provide equity-based compensation in the form of (1) stock options, including incentive stock options, entitling the optionee to favorable tax treatment under Section 422 of the Code; (2) stock appreciation rights; (3) restricted stock and restricted stock units; (4) other share-based awards; and (5) performance awards.  Options issued under these plans vest within one to three years and expire ten years from the grant date.  Stock options granted to the Company’s Chief Executive Officer on January 27, 2010 vest 50% on June 30, 2014 and 50% on June 30, 2015..  If available, the Company issues shares of Common Stock from treasury stock upon exercise of stock options and vesting of restricted stock units.

 

On October 31, 2011, the Company granted a total of 376,000 options pursuant to the 2011 Incentive Plan to certain non-executive key members of the management group.  These options vest on a pro-rata basis over a three year period and expire on October 31, 2021.  The exercise price of the options was $9.22 per share (not less than 100% of the value of the Company’s common shares on the date of grant).  The grant date fair value per share was $4.95, $5.94 and $5.98 for the tranches that vest on October 31, 2012, 2013 and 2014, respectively.

 

The Company measured the fair value of these employee stock option grants at the grant date using the Black-Scholes pricing model with the following weighted average assumptions:

In the “Operating activities” section of the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows, stock-based compensation expense was treated as an adjustment to Net income for the nine month periods ended December 31, 2011 and 2010. Approximately 66 thousand and 118 thousand stock options were exercised in the quarter and nine month periods ended December 31, 2011, respectively.  Approximately 11 thousand stock options were exercised during the quarter and nine month period ended December 31, 2010.

 

Restricted Stock

 

The Company grants shares of its common stock as restricted stock to members of the Board of Directors and the Chief Executive Officer. Restricted stock and restricted stock units granted to the Board of Directors vest within one year while restricted stock granted to the Chief Executive Officer on January 27, 2010 vests 50% on June 30, 2014 and 50% on June 30, 2015. Once vested, restricted shares cannot be sold until 90 days after the Chief Executive Officer or the member of the Board of Directors resigns from his position.  The contractual term on restricted stock is indefinite. In the third quarter of fiscal year 2012, 50 thousand shares of restricted stock units were granted to the non-management members of the Board of Directors.  In the second quarter of fiscal year 2011, 47 thousand shares of restricted stock were granted to the non-management members of the Board of Directors.  As of December 31, 2011, there was $0.6 million in unrecognized compensation costs related to the unvested restricted stock based compensation arrangements granted.

 

2012/2013 LTIP

 

During the first quarter of fiscal year 2012, the Board of Directors of the Company approved the 2012/2013 LTIP, a new long-term incentive plan based upon the achievement of an Adjusted EBITDA target for the two-year period comprised of fiscal years ending in March 2012 and 2013.  At the time of the award, participants will receive restricted shares of the Company’s common stock of up to 100% of the award earned.  The Company assesses the likelihood of meeting the Adjusted EBITDA financial metric on a quarterly basis and recorded a recovery of $1.3 million in the quarter ended December 31, 2011 and no expense for the nine month period ended December 31, 2011.  The Company will continue to monitor the likelihood of whether the Adjusted EBITDA financial metric will be realized and will adjust compensation expense to match expectations.

 

2011/2012 LTIP

 

During the first quarter of fiscal year 2011, the Board of Directors of the Company approved the 2011/2012 LTIP, a long-term incentive plan based upon the achievement of an Adjusted EBITDA target for the two-year period comprised of fiscal years ending in March 2011 and 2012.  At the time of the award, participants will receive at least 10% of the earned award in restricted shares of the Company’s common stock; and the remainder of the award earned will be realized in cash.  The Company assesses the likelihood of meeting the Adjusted EBITDA financial metric on a quarterly basis and recorded expense of $1.3 million in the nine month period ended December 31, 2011, based on this assessment. The Company recorded no expense for the quarter ended December 31, 2011.  As of December 31, 2011, the Company had accrued $5.6 million and the related liability is reflected in the line item “Accrued expenses” on the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets and $0.6 million in the line item “Additional paid-in capital” on the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets.  The Company will continue to monitor the likelihood of whether the Adjusted EBITDA financial metric will be realized and will adjust compensation expense to match expectations.

 

2010/2011 LTIP

 

During the second quarter of fiscal year 2010, the Board of Directors of the Company approved the 2010/2011 LTIP, a long-term incentive plan based upon the achievement of an Adjusted EBITDA target for the two-year period comprised of fiscal years ending in March 2010 and 2011.  At the time of the award and at the sole discretion of the Compensation Committee, participants may receive up to 15% of the award in restricted shares of the Company’s common stock, and the remainder of the award will be realized in cash.  During the second quarter of fiscal year 2012, the Company paid the cash component of the award and issued 15% of the total award in restricted shares.

Note 10. Income Taxes

 

During the third quarter of fiscal year 2012, the Company incurred $2.1 million income tax expense which is comprised of $1.4 million related to two foreign tax jurisdictions that imposed new tax laws which limited the utilization of net operating losses and $0.7 million primarily related to income taxes for foreign operations.

 

During the third quarter of fiscal year 2011, the Company incurred $0.6 million of income tax expense which primarily relates to foreign operations.  There was no U.S. federal or state income tax expense due to the utilization of net operating loss carryforward deductions and a valuation allowance on net deferred tax assets.

 

Income tax expense for the nine month period ended December 31, 2011 was $5.9 million, comprised of a $6.9 million income tax expense related to foreign operations, a $0.9 million U.S. federal income tax benefit related to a prior year settlement, and $0.1 million of state income tax benefit.

Note 13. Concentrations of Risks

 

Sales and Credit Risks

 

The Company sells to customers globally.  Credit evaluations of the Company’s customers’ financial condition are performed periodically, and the Company generally does not require collateral from its customers.  One customer, TTI, Inc., accounted for over 10% of the Company’s net sales in the quarters and nine month periods ended December 31, 2011 and 2010.  There were no customers’ accounts receivable balances exceeding 10% of gross accounts receivable at December 31, 2011 or March 31, 2011.

 

Electronics distributors are an important distribution channel in the electronics industry and accounted for 43% and 51% of the Company’s net sales in the nine month periods ended December 31, 2011 and 2010, respectively.  As a result of the Company’s concentration of sales to electronics distributors, the Company may experience fluctuations in the Company’s operating results as electronics distributors experience fluctuations in end-market demand or adjust their inventory stocking levels.

 

Employee Risks

 

As of December 31, 2011, KEMET had approximately 10,000 employees, of which 600 are located in the United States, 5,000 in Mexico, 2,500 in Asia and 1,900 in Europe.  The number of employees represented by labor organizations at KEMET locations in each of the following countries is:  3,300 hourly employees in Mexico (as required by Mexican law), 700 employees in Italy, 600 employees in Indonesia, 100 employees in Portugal, 200 employees in China, 250 employees in Bulgaria, 200 employees in Finland and 100 employees in Sweden.  For fiscal year 2011 and the current fiscal year to date, the Company has not experienced any major work stoppages. The Company’s labor costs in Mexico, Asia and various locations in Europe are denominated in local currencies, and a significant depreciation or appreciation of the United States dollar against the local currencies would increase or decrease labor costs.

 

Note 14. Condensed Consolidating Financial Statements

 

The 10.5% Senior Notes are fully and unconditionally guaranteed, jointly and severally, on a senior basis by certain of the Company’s 100% owned domestic subsidiaries (“Guarantor Subsidiaries”) and secured by a first priority lien on 51% of the capital stock of certain of our foreign restricted subsidiaries (“Non-Guarantor Subsidiaries”).  The Company’s Guarantor Subsidiaries and Non-Guarantor Subsidiaries are not consistent with the Company’s business groups or geographic operations; accordingly this basis of presentation is not intended to present the Company’s financial condition, results of operations or cash flows for any purpose other than to comply with the specific requirements for subsidiary guarantor reporting. We are required to present condensed consolidating financial information in order for the subsidiary guarantors of the Company’s public debt to be exempt from reporting under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.

 

Condensed consolidating financial statements for the Company’s Guarantor Subsidiaries and Non-Guarantor Subsidiaries are presented in the following tables (amounts in thousands):
