Item 2. MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS (CONTINUED)

We generated net cash flows from operating activities of $15.8 million during the three months ended September 30, 2021 compared to $9.6 million during the prior year period. Capital expenditures were $17.8 million and $39.3 million during the three months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020, respectively, with the decrease primarily related to lower capital spending on our simplification/modernization initiative.







        RESULTS OF CONTINUING OPERATIONS
        SALES
        Sales for the three months ended September 30, 2021 were $483.5 million, an
        increase of $83.2 million, from $400.3 million in the prior year quarter. The
        increase in sales was driven by organic sales growth of 19 percent and a 2
        percent favorable currency exchange impact.

RESTRUCTURING AND RELATED CHARGES AND ASSET IMPAIRMENT CHARGES

As of September 30, 2021, we have $25.9 million of U.S. net deferred tax assets, of which $57.0 million is related to net operating loss, tax credit, and other carryforwards that can be used to offset future U.S. taxable income. Certain of these carryforwards will expire if they are not used within a specified timeframe. At this time, we consider it more likely than not that we will have sufficient U.S. taxable income in the future that will allow us to realize these net deferred tax assets. However, it is possible that some or all of these tax attributes could ultimately expire unused, especially if our end markets do not continue to recover from the COVID-19 global pandemic. Therefore, if we are unable to generate sufficient U.S. taxable income from our operations, a valuation allowance to reduce the U.S. net deferred tax assets may be required, which would materially increase income tax expense in the period in which the valuation allowance is recorded.

Item 2. MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS (CONTINUED)

For the three months ended September 30, 2021, Metal Cutting sales increased 20 percent from the prior year quarter. Aerospace end market sales increased in all regions as airplane manufacturing began to recover. Energy sales increased in the Americas as oil and gas drilling improved, partially offset by declines in Asia Pacific driven by China wind power generation. Sales in our general engineering end market increased in all regions, as manufacturing activity continues to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic. Transportation end market sales increased in all regions due to improved automotive manufacturing levels, despite the ongoing supply chain challenges caused by the shortage of semiconductors. On a regional basis, the sales increases in the Americas and EMEA were driven by increases in all end markets. The sales increase in Asia Pacific was driven by increases in the general engineering, aerospace and transportation markets slightly offset by a decrease in the energy market. For the three months ended September 30, 2021, Metal Cutting operating income was $29.2 million compared to an operating loss of $23.6 million in the prior year quarter. The year-over-year increase was driven primarily by organic sales growth, $1 million of restructuring and related charges compared to $26 million in the prior year quarter, favorable product mix, approximately $4 million of incremental simplification/modernization benefits and favorable pricing, partially offset by approximately $11 million due to the restoration of previously reduced salaries and other cost-control measures that were taken in the prior year and certain manufacturing inefficiencies.

For the three months ended September 30, 2021, Infrastructure sales increased by 21 percent from the prior year quarter. The U.S. oil and gas market drove a year-over-year increase in the energy market. Sales in our earthworks end market increased primarily due to growth in mining, partially offset by a decline in construction. In general engineering, the increase in sales was across all regions. On a regional basis, the sales increase in the Americas was driven by increases in all end markets. The sales increase in EMEA was driven by increases in the general engineering and earthworks markets slightly offset by a decrease in the energy market. The sales increase in Asia Pacific was driven by increases in the general engineering and energy markets slightly offset by a decrease in the earthworks market.

Item 2. MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS (CONTINUED)

For the three months ended September 30, 2021, Infrastructure operating income was $26.0 million compared to $7.3 million in the prior year quarter. The year-over-year change was driven primarily by organic sales growth, favorable pricing, restructuring and related charges in the prior year quarter of $3 million that did not repeat in the current quarter and favorable product mix, partially offset by approximately $3 million due to the restoration of previously reduced salaries and other cost-control measures that were taken in the prior year and higher raw material costs.

For the three months ended September 30, 2021, Corporate expense decreased by $0.2 million from the prior year quarter.
