"We delivered good financial results in the second quarter growing net sales 13% amidst a challenging operating environment impacted by COVID-19," said Bill Siwek, President and CEO of TPI Composites.

"As of today, all of our manufacturing facilities have returned to pre-COVID-19 capacity levels. We believe this positions us well for a strong second half of the year given the strong demand we are seeing from our customers.

"We announced today we extended two supply agreements with GE: one in Iowa through 2021 with an option to extend through 2022 and one in Juarez, Mexico through 2022. We will also be adding another production line in Mexico to provide for GE's wind turbine technologies in North America. Additionally, we announced today that we signed a multi-year agreement with Nordex for two manufacturing lines in our Chennai, India manufacturing facility, where we plan to start production in the first quarter next year. These new manufacturing lines and extensions of contracts added approximately $800 million of potential contract value.

"We continue to invest in our team by adding talented professionals with diverse backgrounds. We announced today that we hired Jim Hilderhoff as our Chief Commercial Officer responsible for all commercial activities at TPI. Jim brings over 30 years of experience of commercial leadership experience at Wabtec and GE.

"We remain nimble from a capital structure standpoint. We completed an amendment to our debt facility which gives us additional flexibility as we navigate through the dynamic macro environment. Our liquidity at the end of the quarter was $138.4 million, composed of $96.7 million of cash and cash equivalents and approximately $41.7 million of total availability under various debt facilities.

"While we believe we have executed well while navigating the COVID-19 pandemic with all of our plants currently operating at or above planned capacity, several of our manufacturing facilities, in particular Mexico and India, are operating in regions with high levels of reported COVID-19 positive cases. As such, we may be required to reinstate temporary production suspensions or volume reductions at these manufacturing facilities or at our other manufacturing facilities to the extent there is a significant resurgence of COVID-19 cases in the regions where we operate or there is an outbreak of COVID-19 cases in any of our manufacturing facilities. Due to the fluid nature of COVID-19 and the potential impact on our business we will not be providing 2020 guidance at this time.

"In closing, the hard work and tireless efforts of our associates allowed us to deal with COVID-19 over the last few months have enabled us to reach pre-COVID capacity levels. I want to thank each associate for their dedication in these trying times. We remain encouraged by the growth opportunities and runway in both the wind and transportation markets and look forward to creating value for our shareholders for years to come," concluded Mr. Siwek.

Second Quarter 2020 Financial Results

Net sales for the three months ended June 30, 2020 increased by $43.0 million or 13.0% to $373.8 million compared to $330.8 million in the same period in 2019. Net sales of wind blades increased by 15.3% to $348.1 million for the three months ended June 30, 2020 as compared to $301.8 million in the same period in 2019. The increase in net sales was primarily driven by a 10% increase in the number of wind blades produced during the three months ended June 30, 2020 compared to the same period in 2019 largely as a result of increased production at our China facilities and our Matamoros, Mexico facility. The increase was also due to a higher average sales price due to the mix of wind blade models produced during the three months ended June 30, 2020 compared to the same period in 2019. The impact of the fluctuating U.S. dollar against the Euro in our Turkey operations and the Chinese Renminbi in our China operations on consolidated net sales for the three months ended June 30, 2020 was a decrease of 0.3% as compared to the same period in 2019. Although our net sales increased for the three months ended June 30, 2020 compared to the same period in 2019, we estimate that our net sales were adversely impacted by approximately $96 million, based upon wind blade sets which we had forecasted to produce at our Mexico, Iowa, Turkey and India manufacturing facilities in the period under non-cancellable purchase orders associated with our long-term contracts but were unable to do so as a result of to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Total cost of goods sold for the three months ended June 30, 2020 was $378.6 million and included $6.9 million related to lines in startup and $4.0 million related to lines in transition during the quarter. This compares to total cost of goods sold for the three months ended June 30, 2019 of $308.2 million and included $14.7 million related to lines in startup and $8.2 million related to lines in transition during the quarter. Total cost of goods sold as a percentage of net sales increased by approximately 8% during the three months ended June 30, 2020 as compared to the same period in 2019, driven primarily by the increase in direct materials and warranty costs primarily relating to a warranty remediation campaign for a specific wind blade model for one of our customers, and COVID-19 related costs associated with the health and safety of our associates and non-productive labor, partially offset by a decrease in startup and transition costs, the impact of savings in raw material costs and foreign currency fluctuations. The impact of the fluctuating U.S. dollar against the Euro, Turkish Lira, Chinese Renminbi and Mexican Peso decreased consolidated cost of goods sold by 3.2% for three months ended June 30, 2020 as compared to the same period in 2019.

General and administrative expenses for the three months ended June 30, 2020 totaled $6.9 million, or 1.8% of net sales, compared to $9.2 million, or 2.8% of net sales, for the same period in 2019. The decrease as a percentage of net sales was primarily driven by lower travel and training costs due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Income taxes reflected a provision of $49.3 million for the three months ended June 30, 2020 as compared to a provision of $0.5 million for the same period in 2019. The increase in the provision was primarily due to a change in the forecasted annual effective tax rate as of June 30, 2020 in comparison to the forecast at March 31, 2020 and the earnings mix by jurisdiction in the three months ended June 30, 2020 as compared to the same period in 2019. More specifically, income taxes for the three months ended June 30, 2020 was the result of applying a revised forecasted annual effective tax rate to a quarter that was significantly impacted by losses in several jurisdictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
