MUELLER WATER PRODUCTS, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES
NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
Note 1.
Organization
Mueller Water Products, Inc., a Delaware corporation, together with its consolidated subsidiaries, operates in two business segments: Mueller Co. and Anvil. Mueller Co. manufactures valves for water and gas systems, including butterfly, iron gate, tapping, check, plug and ball valves, as well as dry-barrel and wet-barrel fire hydrants and a broad range of metering, leak detection and pipe condition assessment products and services for the water infrastructure industry. Anvil manufactures and sources a broad range of products, including a variety of fittings, couplings, hangers and related products. The “Company,” “we,” “us” or “our” refer to Mueller Water Products, Inc. and its subsidiaries or their management. With regard to the Company's segments, “we,” “us” or “our” may also refer to the segment being discussed or its management.
On April 1, 2012, we sold the businesses comprising our former U.S. Pipe segment to USP Holdings Inc., an affiliate of Wynnchurch Capital, Ltd. U.S. Pipe's results of operations have been reclassified as discontinued operations, and its assets and liabilities reclassified as held for sale, for all prior periods.
Our consolidated financial statements are prepared in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”), which require us to make certain estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, sales and expenses and the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities for the reporting periods. Actual results could differ from those estimates. All significant intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated. In our opinion, all normal and recurring adjustments that we consider necessary for a fair financial statement presentation have been made. Certain reclassifications may have been made to previously reported amounts to conform to the current presentation. The condensed consolidated balance sheet data at September 30, 2012 was derived from audited financial statements, but does not include all disclosures required by GAAP.
Unless the context indicates otherwise, whenever we refer to a particular year, we mean the fiscal year ended or ending September 30 in that particular calendar year.
Note 2.
Discontinued Operations
On April 1, 2012, we sold our former U.S. Pipe segment and received proceeds of $94.0 million in cash, subject to adjustments, and the agreement by the purchaser to reimburse us for expenditures to settle certain previously-existing liabilities estimated at $10.1 million at March 31, 2012. During the first quarter of 2013, we received $4.5 million in cash for certain purchase price adjustments and reduced our loss on sale of discontinued operations accordingly.
The table below represents a summary of the operating results for the U.S. Pipe discontinued operations.

Note 3.
Income Taxes
After including the tax effect of the loss on the sale of U.S. Pipe, our U.S. deferred tax liabilities are insufficient to fully support our U.S. deferred tax assets, which include net operating loss carryforwards.  Accordingly, we initially recorded income tax expense to establish valuation allowances related to our overall deferred tax assets during the quarter ended March 31, 2012.
We reevaluate the need for a valuation allowance against the U.S. deferred tax assets each quarter, considering results to date, projections of taxable income, tax planning strategies and reversing taxable temporary differences. During the six months ended March 31, 2013, we decreased our U.S. deferred tax valuation allowance by $11.1 million, including $6.3 million included in other comprehensive income and $4.3 million in discontinued operations. Notwithstanding the valuation allowance, our net operating loss carryforwards remain available to offset future taxable earnings.
The components of income tax expense on continuing operations are provided below.

We did not allocate any income tax expense to discontinued operations in the three or six months ended March 31, 2013. We allocated $18.6 million and $22.1 million of income tax benefit to discontinued operations in the three and six months ended March 31, 2012, respectively. The allocation consisted of benefits from operations of $47.1 million and $50.6 million offset by valuation-allowance related expenses of $28.5 million and $28.5 million for the three and six months ended March 31, 2012, respectively.
At March 31, 2013 and September 30, 2012, the gross liabilities for unrecognized income tax benefits were $4.3 million and $4.3 million, respectively.
We recognize interest related to uncertain income tax positions as interest expense and would recognize any penalties that may be incurred as selling, general and administrative expense. At March 31, 2013 and September 30, 2012, we had $0.9 million and $0.9 million, respectively, of accrued interest expense related to uncertain tax positions.
Generally, our state income tax returns are closed for years prior to 2006, except to the extent of our state net operating loss carryforwards, and our Canadian income tax returns are closed for years prior to 2005. During 2012, we concluded an audit by the Internal Revenue Service (the “IRS”) for the years 2007 through 2010 with no adverse changes. We are also under audit by several states at various levels of completion. We do not have any material unpaid assessments.

ABL Agreement. At March 31, 2013, our asset based lending agreement (the “ABL Agreement”) consisted of a revolving credit facility for up to $225 million of revolving credit borrowings, swing line loans and letters of credit. The ABL Agreement also permits us to increase the size of the credit facility by an additional $150 million in certain circumstances subject to adequate borrowing base availability. We may borrow up to $25 million through swing line loans and may have up to $60 million of letters of credit outstanding.
Borrowings under the ABL Agreement bear interest at a floating rate equal to LIBOR plus a margin ranging from 175 to 225 basis points, or a base rate, as defined in the ABL Agreement, plus a margin ranging from 75 to 125 basis points. At March 31, 2013, the applicable LIBOR-based margin was 200 basis points.
The ABL Agreement terminates on the earlier of (1) December 18, 2017 and (2) 60 days prior to the final maturity of our 7.375% Senior Subordinated Notes. We pay a commitment fee for any unused borrowing capacity under the ABL Agreement of either 0.375% per annum or 0.25% per annum, based on daily average availability during the previous calendar quarter. Our obligations under the ABL Agreement are secured by a first-priority perfected lien on all of our U.S. receivables and inventory, certain cash and other supporting obligations. Borrowings are not subject to any financial maintenance covenants unless excess availability is less than the greater of $22.5 million and 10% of the aggregate commitments under the ABL Agreement. Excess availability based on March 31, 2013 data, as reduced by outstanding letters of credit and accrued fees and expenses of $37.3 million, was $156.3 million.
8.75% Senior Unsecured Notes. The 8.75% Senior Unsecured Notes (the “Senior Unsecured Notes”) mature in September 2020 and bear interest at 8.75%, paid semi-annually. Based on quoted market prices, the outstanding Senior Unsecured Notes had a fair value of $205.7 million at March 31, 2013.
During the quarter ended March 31, 2013, we redeemed $22.5 million aggregate principal amount of the Senior Unsecured Notes at a redemption price of 103%, plus accrued and unpaid interest and recorded a loss on early extinguishment of debt of $1.4 million. We may also redeem up to $33.8 million of the Senior Unsecured Notes at a redemption price of 108.75%, plus accrued and unpaid interest, with the net cash proceeds from certain equity offerings prior to September 2013. After August 2015, we may redeem the Senior Unsecured Notes at specified redemption prices, plus accrued and unpaid interest. Upon a Change of Control (as defined in the indenture securing the Senior Unsecured Notes), we are required to offer to purchase the outstanding Senior Unsecured Notes at a purchase price of 101%, plus accrued and unpaid interest. The Senior Unsecured Notes are subordinate to borrowings under the ABL Agreement.
The indenture securing the Senior Unsecured Notes contains customary covenants and events of default, including covenants that limit our ability to incur debt, pay dividends and make investments. Substantially all of our U.S. subsidiaries guarantee the Senior Unsecured Notes. We believe we were compliant with these covenants at March 31, 2013 and expect to remain in compliance through March 31, 2014.

8


7.375% Senior Subordinated Notes. The 7.375% Senior Subordinated Notes (the “Senior Subordinated Notes”) mature in June 2017 and bear interest at 7.375%, paid semi-annually. Based on quoted market prices, the outstanding Senior Subordinated Notes had a fair value of $432.1 million at March 31, 2013.
We may redeem any portion of the Senior Subordinated Notes at specified redemption prices plus accrued and unpaid interest, subject to restrictions in the indenture securing the Senior Unsecured Notes. Upon a Change of Control (as defined in the indenture securing the Senior Subordinated Notes), we are required to offer to purchase the outstanding Senior Subordinated Notes at a purchase price of 101%, plus accrued and unpaid interest. The Senior Subordinated Notes are subordinate to borrowings under the ABL Agreement and the Senior Unsecured Notes.
The indenture securing the Senior Subordinated Notes contains customary covenants and events of default, including covenants that limit our ability to incur debt, pay dividends and make investments. Substantially all of our U.S. subsidiaries guarantee the Senior Subordinated Notes. We believe we were compliant with these covenants at March 31, 2013 and expect to remain in compliance through March 31, 2014.
Note 5.
Derivative Financial Instruments
Our ongoing business operations expose us to commodity price risk and interest rate risk, which we have previously managed to some extent using derivative instruments. We have used natural gas swap contracts to manage the price risk associated with purchases of natural gas used in certain of our manufacturing processes and interest rate swap contracts to manage interest rate risk associated with our variable-rate borrowings. During 2010, we terminated all of our remaining interest rate swap contracts and we have not initiated any new interest rate swap contracts. During 2012, we terminated our remaining natural gas swap contract.
We had designated our natural gas swap contracts and interest rate swap contracts as cash flow hedges of our purchases of natural gas and our interest payments, respectively. As a result, to the extent the hedges were effective, the changes in the fair value of these contracts prior to settlement were reported as a component of other comprehensive income (loss) and reclassified into earnings in the periods during which the hedged transactions affected earnings. Gains and losses on those contracts representing hedge ineffectiveness and hedge components excluded from the assessment of effectiveness were recognized in earnings as they occurred.
Our derivative contracts were recorded at fair value using publicly observable data such as market natural gas prices and market interest rates. We did not have any derivative contracts outstanding at March 31, 2013 or September 30, 2012.
In the three and six months ended March 31, 2012, we reclassified $1.6 million and $3.0 million, respectively, related to previously terminated interest rate swap contracts to interest expense from accumulated other comprehensive loss.

Our U.S. pension plan was 103% funded at January 1, 2012 under the provisions of the Pension Protection Act. This reflects the revised governmental guidance of Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century. As a result of this revised guidance, we do not expect to make any contributions to our U.S. pension plan during 2013. For financial reporting purposes, our pension plan obligations were 86% funded at September 30, 2012.
On April 1, 2012, we changed certain provisions of our pension and postretirement benefit plans affecting U.S. Pipe participants in these plans. These changes vested all accumulated pension benefits and then froze the plan such that no additional pension benefits would accumulate. Postretirement medical benefits substantially ceased on December 31, 2012. During the six months ended March 31, 2013 we recorded a benefit of $7.4 million, which is included in income from discontinued operations, related to this cessation of benefits.

Note 7.
Stock-based Compensation Plans
During the quarter ended December 31, 2012, we granted cash-settled and stock-settled performance shares under our Amended and Restated 2006 Mueller Water Products, Inc. Stock Incentive Plan (the “2006 Stock Plan”). The performance shares are part of multi-year award cycles consisting of annual performance periods coinciding with our fiscal years, with performance goals established within 90 days of the beginning of each performance period by the Compensation and Human Resources Committee of our board of directors. Performance shares do not convey voting rights or earn dividends. Performance shares vest on the last day of the award cycle, unless vested sooner due to change in control, death, disability or retirement after accumulation of the required number of points, which are a function of age and years of service, provided that the participant continues to be employed by us through that date. We will distribute the related cash and common stock within 90 days of the end of the award cycle.
A cash-settled performance share entitles the recipient to a cash payment determined at the end of each of two annual performance periods. The amount of cash to be distributed equals the product of the number of performance shares granted multiplied by a performance factor ranging from 0.0 to 2.0 and by the closing price of our common stock on the last day of the award cycle. Compensation expense for cash-settled performance shares is charged against income over the applicable performance period based on the estimated performance factor and the closing price per share of our common stock at each balance sheet date. Outstanding cash-settled performance shares had a fair value of $5.93 per share and a total fair value of $2.2 million at March 31, 2013.
A stock-settled performance share entitles the recipient to receive a number of shares of our common stock determined at the end of each of three performance periods. The number of shares of our common stock issuable equals the number of performance shares granted multiplied by a performance factor that ranges from 0.0 to 2.0. Compensation expense for stock-settled performance shares is charged against income over the applicable performance period based on the estimated performance factor and the grant-date price of our common stock.
In 2012, we adopted the Mueller Water Products, Inc. Phantom Plan (the “Phantom Plan”). Phantom Plan awards entitle a recipient to a per-award cash payment equal to the closing price per share of our common stock on the vesting date. Awards generally vest in thirds on successive anniversaries of the grant date. Compensation expense for Phantom Plan awards is charged against income over the vesting period, based on the closing stock price at each balance sheet date until vested. Outstanding Phantom Plan awards had a fair value of $5.93 per award and a total fair value of $3.6 million at March 31, 2013.
We granted stock-based compensation awards under the 2006 Stock Plan, Mueller Water Products, Inc. 2006 Employee Stock Purchase Plan and Phantom Plan during the six months ended March 31, 2013 as follows.

We recorded stock-based compensation expense in continuing operations of $3.3 million and $1.5 million during the three months ended March 31, 2013 and 2012, respectively, and $5.6 million and $2.9 million during the six months ended March 31, 2013 and 2012, respectively. At March 31, 2013, there was approximately $6.4 million of unrecognized compensation expense related to stock-based awards.
Because the effect of including normally dilutive securities in the earnings per share calculation is antidilutive in loss periods, we exclude all stock-based compensation instruments from the calculations of diluted earnings per share in such periods. We excluded 1.6 million and 1.5 million of antidilutive instruments from the calculation of diluted earnings per share for the three and six months ended March 31, 2013, respectively.

Note 11.
Commitments and Contingencies
We are involved in various legal proceedings that have arisen in the normal course of operations, including the proceedings summarized below. The effect of the outcome of these matters on our financial statements cannot be predicted with certainty as any such effect depends on the amount and timing of the resolution of such matters. Other than the litigation described below, we do not believe that any of our outstanding litigation would have a material adverse effect on our business or prospects.
Environmental. We are subject to a wide variety of laws and regulations concerning the protection of the environment, both with respect to the operations at many of our properties and with respect to remediating environmental conditions that may exist at our own or other properties. We strive to comply with federal, state and local environmental laws and regulations. We accrue for environmental expenses resulting from existing conditions that relate to past operations when the costs are probable and reasonably estimable.
In the acquisition agreement pursuant to which a predecessor to Tyco sold our Mueller Co. and Anvil businesses to the prior owners of these businesses in August 1999, Tyco agreed to indemnify us and our affiliates, among other things, for all “Excluded Liabilities.” Excluded Liabilities include, among other things, substantially all liabilities relating to the time prior to August 1999, including environmental liabilities. The indemnity survives indefinitely. Tyco's indemnity does not cover liabilities to the extent caused by us or the operation of our businesses after August 1999, nor does it cover liabilities arising with respect to businesses or sites acquired after August 1999. Since 2007, Tyco has engaged in multiple corporate restructurings, split-offs and divestitures. While none of these transactions directly affects the indemnification obligations of the Tyco indemnitors under the 1999 acquisition agreement, the result of such transactions is that the assets of, and control over, such Tyco indemnitors has changed. Should any of these Tyco indemnitors become financially unable or fail to comply with the terms of the indemnity, we may be responsible for such obligations or liabilities.
In September 1987, we implemented an Administrative Consent Order (“ACO”) for our Burlington, New Jersey property, which was required under the New Jersey Environmental Cleanup Responsibility Act (now known as the Industrial Site Recovery Act). The ACO required soil and ground-water cleanup, and we completed, and received final approval on, the soil cleanup required by the ACO. We retained this property related to the sale of our former U.S. Pipe segment. We expect ground-water issues as well as issues associated with the demolition of former manufacturing facilities at this site will continue and remediation by us could be required. Long-term ground-water monitoring may also be required, but we do not know how long such monitoring would be required and do not believe monitoring or further remediation costs, if any, will have a material adverse effect on any of our financial statements.
On July 13, 2010, Rohcan Investments Limited (“Rohcan”), the former owner of property leased by Mueller Canada Ltd. and located in Milton, Ontario, filed suit against Mueller Canada Ltd. and its directors seeking C$10.0 million in damages arising from the defendants' alleged environmental contamination of the property and breach of lease. Mueller Canada Ltd. leased the property from 1988 through 2008. We are pursuing indemnification from a former owner for certain potential liabilities that are alleged in this lawsuit, and we have accrued for other liabilities not covered by indemnification.  On December 7, 2011, the Court denied the plaintiff's motion for summary judgment.
Walter Energy-related Income Taxes. Each member of a consolidated group for federal income tax purposes is severally liable for the federal income tax liability of each other member of the consolidated group for any year in which it is a member of the group at any time during such year. Each member of the Walter Energy consolidated group, which included us through December 14, 2006, is also jointly and severally liable for pension and benefit funding and termination liabilities of other group members, as well as certain benefit plan taxes. Accordingly, we could be liable under such provisions in the event any such liability is incurred, and not discharged, by any other member of the Walter Energy consolidated group for any period during which we were included in the Walter Energy consolidated group.
A dispute exists with regard to federal income taxes for 1980 through 1994 allegedly owed by the Walter Energy consolidated group. According to Walter Energy's last available public filing on the matter, Walter Energy's management estimated that the amount of tax claimed by the IRS was approximately $34.0 million for issues currently in dispute in bankruptcy court for matters unrelated to us. This amount is subject to interest and penalties. Of the $34.0 million in claimed tax, $21.0 million represents issues in which the IRS is not challenging the deductibility of the particular expense but only whether such expense is deductible in a particular year. Walter Energy's management believes that Walter Energy's financial exposure should be limited to interest and possible penalties and the amount of any tax claimed will be offset by favorable adjustments in other years.

14


In addition, the IRS previously issued a Notice of Proposed Deficiency assessing additional tax of $82.2 million for the fiscal years ended May 31, 2000 through December 31, 2005. Walter Energy filed a formal protest with the IRS, but had not reached a final resolution with the Appeals Division at March 31, 2013. The unresolved issues relate primarily to Walter Energy's method of recognizing revenue on the sale of homes and related interest on the installment notes receivable. The items at issue relate primarily to the timing of revenue recognition and consequently, should the IRS prevail on its positions, Walter Energy's financial exposure should be limited to interest and penalties. As a matter of law, we are jointly and severally liable for any final tax determination for any year in which any of our subsidiaries were members of the Walter Energy consolidated group, which means that we would be liable in the event Walter Energy is unable to pay any amounts owed. Walter Energy has disclosed that it believes its filing positions have substantial merit and that it intends to defend vigorously any claims asserted.
Walter Energy effectively controlled all of our tax decisions for periods during which we were a member of the Walter Energy consolidated group for federal income tax purposes and certain combined, consolidated or unitary state and local income tax groups. Under the terms of the income tax allocation agreement between us and Walter Energy dated May 26, 2006, we generally compute our tax liability on a stand-alone basis, but Walter Energy has sole authority to respond to and conduct all tax proceedings (including tax audits) relating to our federal income and combined state returns, to file all such returns on our behalf and to determine the amount of our liability to (or entitlement to payment from) Walter Energy for such previous periods. This arrangement may result in conflicts between Walter Energy and us.
Our separation from Walter Energy on December 14, 2006 was intended to qualify as a tax-free spin-off under Section 355 of the Internal Revenue Code. In addition, the tax allocation agreement provides that if the spin-off is determined not to be tax-free pursuant to Section 355, we generally will be responsible for any taxes incurred by Walter Energy or its shareholders if such taxes result from certain of our actions or omissions and for a percentage of any such taxes that are not a result of our actions or omissions or Walter Energy's actions or omissions or taxes based upon our market value relative to Walter Energy's market value. Additionally, to the extent that Walter Energy was unable to pay taxes, if any, attributable to the spin-off and for which it is responsible under the tax allocation agreement, we could be liable for those taxes as a result of being a member of the Walter Energy consolidated group for the year in which the spin-off occurred.
In accordance with the income tax allocation agreement, Walter Energy used certain tax assets of one of our predecessors in its calendar 2006 tax return for which payment to us is required. The income tax allocation agreement only requires Walter Energy to make the payment upon realization of the tax benefit by receiving a refund or otherwise offsetting taxes due. Walter Energy currently owes us $11.6 million, which includes recent tax audit and amended tax return adjustments, that is payable pending completion of an IRS audit of Walter Energy's 2006 tax year and the related refund of tax from that year. This receivable is included in other current assets at March 31, 2013.
Indemnifications. We are a party to contracts in which it is common for us to agree to indemnify third parties for certain liabilities that arise out of or relate to the subject matter of the contract. In some cases, this indemnity extends to related liabilities arising from the negligence of the indemnified parties, but usually excludes any liabilities caused by gross negligence or willful misconduct. We cannot estimate the potential amount of future payments under these indemnities until events arise that would trigger a liability under the indemnities.
Additionally, in connection with the sale of assets and the divestiture of businesses, such as the divestiture of our U.S. Pipe segment, we may agree to indemnify buyers and related parties for certain losses or liabilities incurred by these parties with respect to: (i) the representations and warranties made by us to these parties in connection with the sale and (ii) liabilities related to the pre-closing operations of the assets or business sold. Indemnities related to pre-closing operations generally include certain environmental and tax liabilities and other liabilities not assumed by these parties in the transaction.
Indemnities related to the pre-closing operations of sold assets or businesses normally do not represent additional liabilities to us, but simply serve to protect these parties from potential liability associated with our obligations existing at the time of the sale. As with any liability, we have accrued for those pre-closing obligations that are considered probable and reasonably estimable. Should circumstances change, increasing the likelihood of payments related to a specific indemnity, we will accrue a liability when future payment is probable and the amount is reasonably estimable.
Other Matters. We are party to a number of other lawsuits arising in the ordinary course of business, including product liability cases for products manufactured by us or third parties. We provide for costs relating to these matters when a loss is probable and the amount is reasonably estimable. Administrative costs related to these matters are expensed as incurred. The effect of the outcome of these matters on our future financial statements cannot be predicted with certainty as any such effect depends on the amount and timing of the resolution of such matters. While the results of litigation cannot be predicted with certainty, we believe that the final outcome of such other litigation is not likely to have a materially adverse effect on our business or prospects.

Subsequent Events
On April 23, 2013, our board of directors declared a dividend of $0.0175 per share on our common stock, payable on or about May 20, 2013, to stockholders of record at the close of business on May 10, 2013.
Note 13.        Consolidating Guarantor and Non-Guarantor Financial Information
