Joy Global Inc. (JOYG) filed Annual Report for the period ended 2011-10-28.
Highlight of Business Operations:On July 11, 2011 we entered into a Share Purchase Agreement (“SPA”) with TJCC Holdings Limited, a corporation controlled by The Jordan Company, L.P., to acquire 534.8 million shares of common stock, or approximately 41.1%, of IMM, for HK$8.50 per share, or approximately $584.2 million subject to exchange rate fluctuation. IMM is a leading designer and manufacturer of underground coal mining equipment in China. On July 28, 2011, August 16, 2011 and September 2, 2011 we purchased approximately 136.5 million, 102.0 million and 127.2 million shares, respectively, of IMM for a total of $376.7 million. These shares were purchased on the open market and represent approximately 28.1% of the total outstanding shares of IMM. On December 20, 2011, MOFCOM approved the purchase of IMM shares covered by the SPA and the acquisition is expected to close on or around December 30, 2011. At such time, we will have a controlling interest of approximately 69.2% of IMM s outstanding common stock and accordingly will be required under Rule 26.1 of the Hong Kong Takeovers Code to make an unconditional cash tender offer to purchase the remaining outstanding shares and options to purchase shares at a minimum per share purchase price of HK$8.50. If all of the shares and options to purchase shares of IMM common stock are purchased, the aggregate purchase price would be approximately $456.1 million subject to exchange rate fluctuation. We expect that this investment in IMM will strengthen our presence in China and other emerging markets. IMM reported revenues of RMB 1,942 million ($306.3 million) and operating profit of RMB 417 million ($65.8 million) for its most recent fiscal year ending December 31, 2010. During fiscal 2011, our initial investment in IMM was accounted for under the equity method and we recognized estimated income of $3.4 million.
Underground Mining Machinery net sales for 2011 were $2.6 billion compared to $2.1 billion for 2010, and included a $287.7 million increase in aftermarket sales and a $162.1 million increase in original equipment sales. Aftermarket sales increased across all regions. Specifically, aftermarket sales increased in the U.S. and Australasia by $113.5 million and $55.6 million, respectively, primarily due to the strengthening of the parts and rebuild markets in these regions. Additionally, strong parts demand in China caused aftermarket sales to increase by 56.8%, or $52.1 million. The increase in original equipment sales was led primarily by increased room and pillar sales in both the U.S. and South Africa and by roof support sales for longwall application equipment orders in Australasia. These increases were partially offset by decreased longwall equipment volumes in Eurasia and China. Foreign currency translation favorably impacted sales by $77.4 million.
Operating income for the Underground Mining Machinery segment was $595.3 million in fiscal 2011, compared to operating income of $433.9 million in fiscal 2010. Operating income was favorably impacted by $175.1 million due to higher sales volumes, $52.2 million due to favorable manufacturing overhead absorption and $45.4 million in favorable overall price realization. These increases were partially offset by $67.9 million of unfavorable changes in material price variances due to rising steel costs and other surcharges, $49.4 million of increased product development, selling and administrative expenses and $6.6 million from a prior year foreign currency gain that was not repeated in the current year. Foreign currency translation favorably impacted operating income by $17.9 million.
Product development, selling and administrative expense was $602.0 million, or 13.7% of sales, in 2011, compared to $480.6 million, or 13.6% of sales, in 2010. Before acquisition transaction costs of $19.7 million in 2011, product development, selling and administrative expenses totaled $582.3 million, or 13.2% of sales. Product development costs increased by $20.8 million, which is attributable to research and development activities on new or existing products and increased personnel for smart services activities. Selling costs increased by $34.0 million due to travel, warehouse costs to support increased parts volumes and the inclusion of $5.6 million from LeTourneau s mining equipment business. Administrative expenses increased primarily due to acquisition transaction costs.
Underground Mining Machinery net sales for 2010 were $2.1 billion compared to $2.3 billion for 2009, and included a $223.2 million decrease in original equipment sales, partially offset by a $71.3 million increase in aftermarket sales. Net sales in 2010 increased by $92.9 million due to the effect of foreign currency translation. Original equipment sales decreased by $182.8 million in the United States and $61.5 million in Australasia, primarily due to decreased longwall equipment shipments in both regions. Original equipment sales also decreased in South Africa by $112.9 million, primarily due to decreased room and pillar and longwall mining equipment shipments. These decreases were partially offset by a $115.8 million increase in original equipment sales, primarily of longwall equipment, in China. Aftermarket sales were up in all regions, but most significantly in South Africa, primarily due to complete machine rebuilds.
