Roper Technologies, Inc. and Subsidiaries
Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements (unaudited)
All currency and share amounts are in millions, except per share data

1.    Basis of Presentation

The accompanying Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements for the three and six months ended June 30, 2019 and 2018 are unaudited. In the opinion of management, the accompanying unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements reflect all adjustments, which include only normal recurring adjustments, necessary to state fairly the financial position, results of operations, comprehensive income and cash flows of Roper Technologies, Inc. and its subsidiaries (“Roper,” the “Company,” “we,” “our” or “us”) for all periods presented. The December 31, 2018 financial position data included herein was derived from the audited consolidated financial statements included in the Company’s 2018 Annual Report on Form 10-K (“Annual Report”) filed on February 25, 2019 with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) but does not include all disclosures required by U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”).

Roper’s management has made estimates and assumptions relating to the reporting of assets and liabilities and the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities to prepare these Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements in conformity with GAAP. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

The results of operations for the three and six months ended June 30, 2019 are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the full year. You should read these unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements in conjunction with Roper’s audited consolidated financial statements and the notes thereto included in its Annual Report. Certain prior period amounts have been reclassified to conform to current period presentation.

Changes in Segment Reporting Structure

During the first quarter of 2019, we implemented a realignment of our reportable segment structure. The new reportable segments continue to provide a transparent view into Roper’s operations and capital deployment objectives. The Company’s new reporting segment structure reinforces Roper’s diversified, niche market strategy by reporting based upon business models instead of end markets. The four new reportable segments (and businesses within each - including acquisitions since the realignment) are as follows:

Application Software - Aderant, CBORD, CliniSys, Data Innovations, Deltek, Horizon, IntelliTrans, PowerPlan, Strata, Sunquest
Network Software & Systems - ConstructConnect, DAT, Foundry, Inovonics, iTradeNetwork, Link Logistics, MHA, RF IDeas, SHP, SoftWriters, TransCore
Measurement & Analytical Solutions - Alpha, CIVCO Medical Solutions, CIVCO Radiotherapy, Dynisco, FMI, Gatan, Hansen, Hardy, IPA, Logitech, Neptune, Northern Digital, Struers, Technolog, Uson, Verathon
Process Technologies - AMOT, CCC, Cornell, FTI, Metrix, PAC, Roper Pump, Viatran, Zetec

The day-to-day operations of our businesses, our organizational structure, and our strategy remain unchanged. All prior periods have been recast to reflect the changes noted above.

Accounting Policies Update

The Company adopted the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") Accounting Standards Codification ("ASC") Topic 842, Leases (“ASC 842”), as of January 1, 2019 using the cumulative effect transition method for leases in existence as of the date of adoption.

Our accounting policies are detailed in Note 1 of the Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements of our Annual Report. Changes to our accounting policies as a result of adopting ASC 842 are as follows:

Leases - The Company adopted ASC 842 on January 1, 2019 using the cumulative effect transition method for leases in existence as of the date of adoption. The reported results for 2019 reflect the application of ASC 842 guidance while the reported results for 2018 were prepared under the previous guidance of ASC 840, Leases (“ASC 840”). The adoption of ASC 842 represents a change in accounting principle that recognizes right-of-use (“ROU”) assets and lease liabilities arising from all leases based on the present value of future minimum lease payments over the lease term. Consistent with ASC 840, lease expense for minimum lease payments

8

Table of Contents

is recognized on a straight-line basis over the lease term. The Company’s adoption of ASC 842 had no impact on our Condensed Consolidated Statement of Earnings or our Condensed Consolidated Statement of Cash Flows.

We elected the package of practical expedients permitted under the transition guidance within ASC 842, which allowed us: (i) to carry forward the historical lease classification, (ii) not to reassess whether any existing contract contains a lease, and (iii) not to reassess initial direct costs for existing leases.

Operating leases are classified as non-current operating lease ROU assets and current and non-current operating lease liabilities on our Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheet. Finance leases are not material.

Adoption of ASC 842 resulted in the recognition of operating lease ROU assets and total operating lease liabilities of $274.0 and $282.7, respectively, as of January 1, 2019. Certain of the ROU assets and total operating lease liabilities have been reclassified within the held for sale line items on the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheet related to the classification of the Gatan business as held for sale. The difference between the operating lease ROU assets and total operating lease liabilities is the reclassification of previously recognized deferred rent liabilities against operating lease ROU assets. The adoption of ASC 842 did not result in an adjustment to retained earnings and it did not impact our deferred tax assets or liabilities.

The Company’s operating leases are primarily for real property in support of our business operations. Although many of our leases contain renewal options, we generally are not reasonably certain to exercise these options at the commencement date. Accordingly, renewal options are generally not included in the lease term for determining the ROU asset and lease liability at commencement.

Variable lease payments generally depend on an inflation-based index and such payments are not included in the original estimate of the lease liability. These variable lease payments are not material.

Discount rates are determined based on Roper’s incremental borrowing rate as our leases generally do not provide an implicit rate.

2.    Recent Accounting Pronouncements

The FASB establishes changes to accounting principles under GAAP in the form of accounting standards updates (“ASUs”) to the ASC. The Company considers the applicability and impact of all ASUs. Any recent ASUs not listed below were assessed and determined to be either not applicable or are expected to have an immaterial impact on the Company’s results of operations, financial position or cash flows.

Recently Adopted Accounting Pronouncements

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASC 842, which included the recognition of right-of-use lease assets and lease liabilities on the balance sheet and the disclosure of other key information about leasing arrangements. The Company adopted ASC 842 on January 1, 2019 using the cumulative effect transition method for leases in existence as of the date of adoption. See Note 1 of the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements for details.

In May 2014, the FASB issued ASC 606, which created a single, comprehensive revenue recognition model for all contracts with customers. The Company adopted ASC 606 as of January 1, 2018 using the modified retrospective transition method resulting in a $14.3 increase to beginning retained earnings.

In June 2016, the FASB issued an update which amends the measurement of credit losses on financial instruments by requiring entities to use a forward-looking approach based on expected losses rather than incurred losses to estimate credit losses on certain types of financial instruments, including trade receivables. This update is effective for public entities for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019, with early adoption permitted. The Company is evaluating the impact of this update on its results of operations and financial condition.

3.    Weighted Average Shares Outstanding

Basic earnings per share were calculated using net earnings and the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding during the respective period. Diluted earnings per share were calculated using net earnings and the weighted average number of shares of common stock and potential common stock outstanding during the respective period. Potentially dilutive common stock consisted of stock options based upon the trading price of Roper’s common stock. The effects of potential common stock were determined using the treasury stock method. Weighted average shares outstanding are shown below:

For the three and six months ended June 30, 2019, there were 0.596 and 0.644 outstanding stock options, that were not included in the determination of diluted earnings per share because doing so would have been antidilutive, as compared to 0.678 outstanding stock options that would have been antidilutive in the respective 2018 periods.

4.    Business Acquisition and Assets and Liabilities Held for Sale

On April 18, 2019, Roper acquired 100% of the shares of Foundry, a leading provider of software technologies used to deliver visual effects and 3D content for the entertainment, digital design, and visualization industries. The purchase price was $536.0, net of cash acquired. The results of operations of Foundry are included in Roper's Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements since the date of the acquisition within the Network Software & Systems reportable segment. Supplemental pro forma information has not been provided as the acquisition did not have a material impact on Roper's Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements.

The Company recorded $311.1 in goodwill and $269.5 of other identifiable intangibles in connection with the acquisition; however, purchase price allocations are preliminary pending final tax-related adjustments. The majority of the goodwill is not expected to be deductible for tax purposes. The amortizable intangible assets include customer relationships of $215.3 (16 year weighted average useful life) and technology of $42.6 (8 year weighted average useful life).

Assets and Liabilities Held for Sale

During the second quarter of 2018, Roper and Thermo Fisher Scientific, Inc. (“Thermo Fisher”) entered into a definitive agreement under which Thermo Fisher would acquire 100% of the shares of Gatan, Inc. (“Gatan”), a wholly owned subsidiary of Roper, for approximately $925.0 in cash. On June 10, 2019, Roper and Thermo Fisher announced a mutual termination of this agreement due to the challenges in obtaining regulatory approval in the United Kingdom.

The Company remains committed to completing the sale of Gatan. The Company has engaged in marketing efforts and expects to reach an agreement with a buyer within the next twelve months.

At December 31, 2018 and June 30, 2019, the assets and liabilities of Gatan were classified as held for sale on Roper’s Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets. The Company recognized a deferred tax liability of $10.0 associated with the excess of book basis over tax basis in the shares of Gatan during 2018.

The Company closed on its sale of Princeton Instruments, Photometrics, Lumenera, and other brands (collectively, the “Imaging” businesses) to Teledyne Technologies Incorporated on February 5, 2019 for approximately $225.0 in cash. The results of the Imaging businesses are reported in the Measurement & Analytical Solutions segment through such date. The sale resulted in a pretax gain of $119.6, which is reported within “Gain on disposal of business” in the Condensed Consolidated Statement of Earnings. In addition, we recognized income tax expense of $31.1 in connection with the sale, which is included within “Income taxes” in the Condensed Consolidated Statement of Earnings. The assets and liabilities of the Imaging businesses were classified as held for sale on Roper’s Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheet at December 31, 2018.

5.    Stock Based Compensation

The Roper Technologies, Inc. 2016 Incentive Plan (“2016 Plan”) is a stock-based compensation plan used to grant incentive stock options, nonqualified stock options, restricted stock, stock appreciation rights or equivalent instruments to Roper’s employees, officers, directors and consultants.

Stock Options - In the six months ended June 30, 2019, 0.721 options were granted with a weighted average fair value of $67.87 per option. During the same period in 2018, 0.660 options were granted with a weighted average fair value of $57.45 per option. All options were issued with an exercise price equal to the closing price of Roper’s common stock on the date of grant, as required by the 2016 Plan.

Roper records compensation expense for employee stock options based on the estimated fair value of the options on the date of grant using the Black-Scholes option-pricing model. Historical data is used to estimate the expected price volatility, the expected dividend yield, the expected option life and the expected forfeiture rate. The risk-free rate is based on the U.S. Treasury yield curve in effect at the time of grant for the estimated life of the option. The following weighted average assumptions were used to estimate the fair value of options granted during current and prior year periods using the Black-Scholes option-pricing model:

Cash received from option exercises for the six months ended June 30, 2019 and 2018 was $49.1 and $39.3, respectively.

Restricted Stock Grants - During the six months ended June 30, 2019, the Company granted 0.294 shares with a weighted average grant date fair value of $315.00 per restricted share. During the same period in 2018, the Company granted 0.357 shares with a weighted average grant date fair value of $277.72 per restricted share. All grants were issued at grant date fair value.

During the six months ended June 30, 2019, 0.170 restricted shares vested with a weighted average grant date fair value of $193.50 per restricted share and a weighted average vest date fair value of $311.77 per restricted share.

Employee Stock Purchase Plan - Roper’s stock purchase plan allows employees in the U.S. and Canada to designate up to 10% of eligible earnings to purchase Roper’s common stock at a 5% discount to the average closing price of the stock at the beginning and end of a quarterly offering period. Common stock sold to employees pursuant to the stock purchase plan may be either treasury stock, stock purchased on the open market, or newly issued shares.

During the six months ended June 30, 2019 and 2018, participants in the employee stock purchase plan purchased 0.012 and 0.011 shares of Roper’s common stock for total consideration of $3.6 and $2.8, respectively. All shares were purchased from Roper’s treasury shares.

Table of Contents


An evaluation of the carrying value of goodwill and indefinite-lived intangibles is required to be performed on an annual basis and on an interim basis if an event occurs or circumstances change that would more likely than not reduce the fair value of a reporting unit below its carrying value. There have been no events or changes in circumstances which indicate an interim impairment review is required in 2019. The Company will perform the annual analysis during the fourth quarter of 2019.

8.    Fair Value of Financial Instruments

Roper’s debt at June 30, 2019 included $4,100 of fixed-rate senior notes with the following fair values:
$600 3.000% senior notes due 2020
604

$500 2.800% senior notes due 2021
504

$500 3.125% senior notes due 2022
509

$700 3.650% senior notes due 2023
729

$300 3.850% senior notes due 2025
317

$700 3.800% senior notes due 2026
730

$800 4.200% senior notes due 2028
856



The fair values of the senior notes are based on the trading prices of the notes, which the Company has determined to be Level 2 in the FASB fair value hierarchy.

9.    Contingencies

Roper, in the ordinary course of business, is the subject of, or a party to, various pending or threatened legal actions, including product liability and employment practices that, in general, are based upon claims of the kind that have been customary over the past several years and which the Company is vigorously defending. After analyzing the Company’s contingent liabilities on a gross basis and, based upon past experience with resolution of its product liability and employment practices claims and the limits of the primary, excess, and umbrella liability insurance coverages that are available with respect to pending claims, management believes that adequate provision has been made to cover any potential liability not covered by insurance, and that the ultimate liability, if any, arising from these actions should not have a material adverse effect on Roper’s consolidated financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

Roper or its subsidiaries have been named defendants along with numerous industrial companies in asbestos-related litigation claims in certain U.S. states. No significant resources have been required by Roper to respond to these cases and Roper believes it has valid defenses to such claims and, if required, intends to defend them vigorously. Given the state of these claims, it is not possible to determine the potential liability, if any. In April 2018, a stockholder derivative complaint was filed in Sarasota County, Florida against the Company, nominally, and its directors and former chairman & chief executive officer (“CEO”), alleging the directors breached their fiduciary duties and were unjustly enriched by the compensation earned by the nonexecutive directors and the CEO in 2015 and 2016. The matter was settled in June 2019, subject to court approval, which is pending. Under the terms of the settlement, the Company agreed to, among other things, expand future disclosures regarding its compensation practices, submit a new director compensation plan to shareholders for approval in 2020, and pay plaintiff’s attorneys’ fees and expenses.

11.    Revenues from Contracts

Disaggregated Revenue - We disaggregate our revenues into two categories: (i) software and related services; and (ii) engineered products and related services. Software and related services revenues are primarily derived from our Application Software and Network Software & Systems reportable segments. Engineered products and related services revenues are derived from all of our reportable segments except Application Software and comprise substantially all of the revenues generated in our Measurement & Analytical Solutions and Process Technologies reportable segments. See details in the table below.

Remaining performance obligations - Remaining performance obligations represents the transaction price of firm orders for which work has not been performed and excludes unexercised contract options. As of June 30, 2019, the aggregate amount of the transaction price allocated to remaining performance obligations was $3,044.8. We expect to recognize revenue on approximately 59% of our remaining performance obligations over the next 12 months, with the remainder to be recognized thereafter.

(2) The non-current portion of deferred revenue is included in “Other liabilities” in our Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets.

The change in our net contract assets/(liabilities) from December 31, 2018, to June 30, 2019 was due primarily to the acquisition of Foundry, which increased net contract liabilities by $23.1 as of June 30, 2019, and the timing of payments and invoicing relating to SaaS and PCS renewals, partially offset by revenues recognized in the three and six months ended June 30, 2019 of $235.5 and $543.7, respectively, related to our contract liability balances at December 31, 2018.

In order to determine revenues recognized in the period from contract liabilities, we allocate revenue to the individual deferred revenue, BIE or customer deposit balance outstanding at the beginning of the year until the revenue exceeds that balance.

Impairment losses recognized on our accounts receivable and unbilled receivables were immaterial in the three and six months ended June 30, 2019.

12. Leases

The Company’s operating leases are primarily for real property in support of our business operations. Although many of our leases contain renewal options, we generally are not reasonably certain to exercise these options at the commencement date. Accordingly, renewal options are generally not included in the lease term for determining the ROU asset and lease liability at commencement. Variable lease payments generally depend on an inflation-based index and such payments are not included in the original estimate of the lease liability. These variable lease payments are not material.

For the three and six months ended June 30, 2019, the Company recognized $16.8 and $32.7 in operating lease expense, respectively.

The following table presents the supplemental cash flow information related to the Company’s operating leases for the six months ended June 30, 2019:

ITEM 2.
MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

You should read the following discussion in conjunction with Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2018 (“Annual Report”) as filed on February 25, 2019 with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) and the Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements included elsewhere in this report.

Information About Forward-Looking Statements

This report includes “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the federal securities laws. In addition, we, or our executive officers on our behalf, may from time to time make forward-looking statements in reports and other documents we file with the SEC or in connection with oral statements made to the press, potential investors or others. All statements that are not historical facts are “forward-looking statements.”  Forward-looking statements may be indicated by words or phrases such as “anticipate,” “estimate,” “plans,” “expects,” “projects,” “should,” “will,” “believes” or “intends” and similar words and phrases. These statements reflect management’s current beliefs and are not guarantees of future performance. They involve risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed or implied in any forward-looking statement.

Examples of forward-looking statements in this report include but are not limited to statements regarding operating results, the success of our operating plans, our expectations regarding our ability to generate cash and reduce debt and associated interest expense, profit and cash flow expectations, the prospects for newly acquired businesses to be integrated and contribute to future growth and our expectations regarding growth through acquisitions. Important assumptions relating to the forward-looking statements include, among others, demand for our products, the cost, timing and success of product upgrades and new product introductions, raw material costs, expected pricing levels, expected outcomes of pending litigation, competitive conditions and general economic conditions. These assumptions could prove inaccurate. Although we believe that the estimates and projections reflected in the forward-looking statements are reasonable, our expectations may prove to be incorrect. Important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from estimates or projections contained in the forward-looking statements include but are not limited to:

general economic conditions;
difficulty making acquisitions and successfully integrating acquired businesses;
any unforeseen liabilities associated with future acquisitions;
limitations on our business imposed by our indebtedness;
unfavorable changes in foreign exchange rates;

Overview

Roper Technologies, Inc. (“Roper,” “we,” “us” or “our”) is a diversified technology company. We operate businesses that design and develop software (both license and software-as-a-service) and engineered products and solutions for a variety of niche end markets.

We pursue consistent and sustainable growth in earnings and cash flow by emphasizing continuous improvement in the operating performance of our existing businesses and by acquiring other businesses that offer high value-added software, services, engineered products and solutions that we believe are capable of achieving growth and maintaining high margins. We compete in many niche markets and believe we are the market leader or a competitive alternative to the market leader in most of these markets.

As discussed in Note 1, during the first quarter of 2019, we implemented a realignment of our reportable segment structure. The new reportable segments continue to provide a transparent view into Roper’s operations and capital deployment objectives. The Company’s new reporting segment structure reinforces Roper’s diversified, niche market strategy by reporting based upon business models instead of end markets. The four new reportable segments (and businesses within each - including acquisitions since the realignment) are as follows:

Application Software - Aderant, CBORD, CliniSys, Data Innovations, Deltek, Horizon, IntelliTrans, PowerPlan, Strata, Sunquest
Network Software & Systems - ConstructConnect, DAT, Foundry, Inovonics, iTradeNetwork, Link Logistics, MHA, RF IDeas, SHP, SoftWriters, TransCore
Measurement & Analytical Solutions - Alpha, CIVCO Medical Solutions, CIVCO Radiotherapy, Dynisco, FMI, Gatan, Hansen, Hardy, IPA, Logitech, Neptune, Northern Digital, Struers, Technolog, Uson, Verathon
Process Technologies - AMOT, CCC, Cornell, FTI, Metrix, PAC, Roper Pump, Viatran, Zetec

The day-to-day operations of our businesses, our organizational structure, and our strategy remain unchanged. All prior periods have been recast to reflect the changes noted above.
