Note 2. Basis of Presentation and Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

 

Basis of Presentation and Use of Estimates

 

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“US GAAP”) and pursuant to the accounting and disclosure rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) for interim reporting purposes. The results reported in these unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements are not necessarily indicative of results that may be expected for the entire year. These unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the information contained in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021. The year-end condensed balance sheet data was derived from the audited financial statements in the Annual Report on Form 10-K but does not include all disclosures required by US GAAP.

 

The preparation of these unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements requires the Company to make estimates and judgments that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, revenues and expenses, and related disclosures of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the Company’s financial statements. Actual results may differ from these estimates under different assumptions and conditions. Estimates utilized in the preparation of these unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements relate to the collectability of account receivables, the valuation of inventories, estimated earnings on uncompleted contracts, useful lives and potential impairment of long-lived assets. Changes in estimates are reflected in the periods during which they become known. Actual amounts may differ from these estimates and could differ materially. These financial statements reflect all adjustments that in the opinion of management are necessary for a fair statement of the financial position, results of operations and cash flows for the period presented, and are of a normal, recurring nature.

 

The Company has one operating segment, Architectural Glass and Windows, which is also its reporting segment, comprising the design, manufacturing, distribution, marketing and installation of high-specification architectural glass and window products sold to the construction industry.

Principles of Consolidation

 

These unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements consolidate TGI and its subsidiaries Tecnoglass S.A.S (“TG”), C.I. Energía Solar S.A.S E.S. Windows (“ES”), ES Windows LLC (“ESW LLC”), Tecnoglass LLC (“Tecno LLC”), Tecno RE LLC (“Tecno RE”), GM&P Consulting and Glazing Contractors (“GM&P”), Componenti USA LLC, ES Metals SAS (“ES Metals”), and Ventanas Solar S.A (“VS”), which are entities in which we have a controlling financial interest because we hold a majority voting interest. To determine if we hold a controlling financial interest in an entity, we first evaluate if we are required to apply the variable interest entity (“VIE”) model to the entityand if we are not, the entity is evaluated under the voting interest model. All significant intercompany accounts and transactions are eliminated in consolidation, including unrealized intercompany profits and losses. The equity method of accounting is used for investments in affiliates and other joint ventures over which the Company has significant influence but does not have effective control.

 

TGI and certain wholly owned subsidiaries with functional currency different than the U.S. dollar have long-term intercompany loan balances denominated in foreign currencies that are remeasured at the current exchange rate in effect at the balance sheet date. Such loan balances are not expected to be settled in the foreseeable future. Any gains and losses relating to these loans are included in the accumulated other comprehensive income (loss), which is reflected as a separate component of stockholders’ equity.

 

Recast of Prior Year Period Financial Statements

 

On November 8, 2021, we announced that we entered into a purchase agreement with Ventanas Solar S.A. (“VS”), a Panama domiciled company that acts as an importer and distributor of the Company’s products in the Republic of Panama. VS was affiliated with family members of Jose M. Daes, the Company’s Chief Executive Officer, and Christian T. Daes, the Company’s Chief Operating Officer. Pursuant to the Agreement, the Company through ES acquired 95% of the shares of VS for $4.0 million, which were paid for through the capitalization of certain accounts receivable of ES from previous sales to VS. The transaction was consummated in December 2021 and is part of the Company’s continued strategy to vertically integrate its operations. In June, 2022, the remaining 5% interest was contributed to the Company, and now is a fully owned subsidiary of the Company.

 

The acquisition of VS was deemed to be a transaction between entities under common control. As a result, the assets and liabilities were transferred at the historical cost of VS, with prior periods retroactively adjusted to include the historical financial results of the acquired company for the period they were controlled by the previous owners of VS in the Company’s financial statements.

 

The following table includes the financial information as originally reported and the net effect of the VS acquisition after elimination of intercompany transactions:

Derivative Financial Instruments

 

The Company recognizes all derivative financial instruments as either assets or liabilities at fair value on the condensed consolidated balance sheet. The unrealized gains or losses arising from changes in fair value of derivative instruments that are designated and qualify as cash flow hedges, are recorded in the condensed consolidated statement of comprehensive income. Amounts in accumulated other comprehensive loss on the condensed consolidated balance sheet are reclassified into the condensed consolidated statement of income in the same period or periods during which the hedged transactions are settled.

 

Adoption of New Accounting Standards

 

In June 2016, Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued Accounting Standards Update (ASU) 2016-13, Financial Instruments—Credit Losses (Topic 326). This ASU represents a significant change in the allowance for credit losses accounting model by requiring immediate recognition of management’s estimates of current expected credit losses. Under the prior model, losses were recognized only as they were incurred, which FASB has noted delayed recognition of expected losses that might not yet have met the threshold of being probable. The new model is applicable to all financial instruments that are not accounted for at fair value through net income, thereby bringing consistency in accounting treatment across different types of financial instruments and requiring consideration of a broader range of variables when forming loss estimates. ASU 2016-13 was effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019, . The FASB issued ASU 2019-10 and ASU 2019-11 during the fourth quarter of 2019 that postponed the effective date to the year beginning after December 15, 2022 for smaller reporting companies. In February 2020, the FASB issued ASU 2020-02 “Financial Instruments – Credit Losses (Topic 326) and Leases (Topic 842), which amended SEC Staff Accounting Bulletin No. 119 (SAB119) which contains interpretative guidance from the SEC aligned to the FASB’s ASC 326.

 

We adopted this standard using the modified retrospective approach at the beginning of fiscal year 2022 as we no longer qualified as a smaller reporting company. The adoption of this ASU did not have a significant impact on the Company’s earnings or financial condition. Refer to additional disclosures in Note 4.

 

Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements

 

In March 2020, the FASB issued ASU 2020-04, “Reference Rate Reform (Topic 848): Facilitation of the Effects of Reference Rate Reform on Financial Reporting”. The amendments in this Update provide optional expedients and exceptions for contracts, hedging relationships, and other transactions affected by reference rate reform if certain criteria are met. The amendments in this Update apply only to contracts, hedging relationships, and other transactions that reference LIBOR or another reference rate expected to be discontinued because of reference rate reform. The expedients and exceptions provided by the amendments do not apply to contract modifications made and hedging relationships entered into or evaluated after December 31, 2022, except for hedging relationships existing as of December 31, 2022, that an entity has elected certain optional expedients for and that are retained through the end of the hedging relationship. The amendments in this Update are effective for the Company through December 31, 2022, with early adoption permitted. The Company’s outstanding debt, which bears interest based on LIBOR. contains provisions for transitioning into a benchmark reference rate prior to the discontinuation of LIBOR in 2023. Our interest rate swap derivative contract will be adjusted accordingly.

 

In September 2022, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) issued Accounting Standards Update (ASU) No. 2022-04, Liabilities – Supplier Finance Programs (Subtopic 405-50): Disclosure of Supplier Finance Program Obligations. The ASU requires a buyer in a supplier finance program to disclose information about the program’s nature, activity during the period, changes from period to period, and potential magnitude. For the Company, this standard is effective beginning after January 1, 2023. As this ASU relates to disclosures only, there will be no impact to the Company’s consolidated results of operations and financial condition

 

We reviewed all other recently issued accounting pronouncements and concluded that they were either not applicable or not expected to have a significant impact to the condensed consolidated financial statements.

Trade Accounts Receivable

 

In the ordinary course of business, we extend credit to customers on a generally non-collateralized basis. The Company maintains an allowance for expected credit losses which is based on management’s assessments of the amount which may become uncollectible in the future and is determined through consideration of our write-off history, specific identification of uncollectible accounts based in part on the customer’s past due balance (based on contractual terms), and consideration of prevailing economic and industry conditions. Uncollectible accounts are written off after repeated attempts to collect from the customer have been unsuccessful.

 

Trade accounts receivable consist of the following:

Contract Assets and Liabilities

 

Contract assets represent accumulated incurred costs and earned profits on contracts with customers that have been recorded as sales but have not been billed to customers and are classified as current. In addition, a portion of the amounts billed on certain fixed price contracts that are withheld by the customer as a retainage until a final good receipt of the complete project to the customers satisfaction. Contract liabilities consist of advance payments and billings in excess of costs incurred and deferred revenue, and represent amounts received in excess of sales recognized on contracts. The Company classifies advance payments and billings in excess of costs incurred as current, and deferred revenue as current or non-current based on the expected timing of sales recognition. Contract assets and contract liabilities are determined on a contract-by-contract basis at the end of each reporting period. The non-current portion of contract liabilities is included in long-term liabilities in the Company’s condensed consolidated balance sheets.

Note 6. Debt

 

The Company’s debt is comprised of the following:

 

   September 30, 2022   December 31, 2021 
Revolving lines of credit  $328   $279 
Finance lease   210    306 
Other loans   -    239 
Senior Secured Credit Facility   172,500    204,257 
Less: Deferred cost of financing   (4,349)   (6,026)
Total obligations under borrowing arrangements   168,689    199,055 
Less: Current portion of long-term debt and other current borrowings   434    10,700 
Long-term debt  $168,255   $188,355 

 

In October 2020, the Company closed a $300 million five-year term Senior Secured Credit Facility consisting of a $250 million delayed draw term loan and a $50 million committed revolving credit facility which bears interest at a rate of LIBOR, with a 0.75% floor, plus a spread of between 2.50% and 3.50%, based on the Company’s net leverage ratio. In December 2020, we used $23.1 million proceeds of the long-term debt facility to repay several credit facilities. Subsequently, in January 2021 we redeemed the Company’s existing $210 million unsecured senior notes, which had an interest rate of 8.2% and mature in 2022 using proceeds from this new facility and incurred in an extinguishment cost of $10.9 million including $8.6 of call premium to exercise the call option.

 

In November 2021, the Company amended its Senior Secured Credit Facility to (i) increase the borrowing capacity under its committed Line of credit from $50 million to $150 million, (ii) reduce its borrowing costs by an approximate 130 basis points, and (iii) extend the initial maturity date by one year to the end of 2026. Borrowings under the credit facility now bear interest at a rate of LIBOR with no floor plus a spread of 1.50%, based on the Company’s net leverage ratio, compared to a prior rate of LIBOR with a floor of 0.75% plus a spread of 2.50%, resulting on total annual savings of approximately $15 million at current levels of outstanding borrowings, since entering into our inaugural US Bank syndicated facility in October of 2020. The effective interest rate for this credit facility including deferred issuance costs is 3.23%. In relation to this transaction, the Company accounted for costs related to fees paid of $1,496. This was accounted for as a debt modification and $1,346 of fees paid to banks were capitalized as deferred cost of financing and $150 paid to third parties recorded as an operating expense on the consolidated statements of operations for the year 2021. In March 2022, we voluntarily prepaid $15 million of capital to this credit facility which has decreased our net leverage ratio and triggered a step down in the applicable interest rate spread to 1.5%. Additionally, on September 30, 2022 we voluntarily prepaid $10.0 million of the term loan and $6.7 million under the revolving line of credit which is fully unused as of September 30, 2022.

 

As of September 30, 2022, the Company was obligated under various finance leases under which the aggregate present value of the minimum lease payments amounted to $210 and weighted average remaining lease term of 25 months. Differences between finance lease obligations and the value of property, plant and equipment under finance lease arises from differences between the maturities of finance lease obligations and the useful lives of the underlying assets.

 

Maturities of long-term debt and other current borrowings are as follows as of September 30, 2022:

 

      
2023  $434 
2024   2,586 
2025   15,018 
2026   15,000 
2027   140,000 
Thereafter   - 
Total  $173,038 

 

The Company’s loans have maturities ranging from a few weeks to 5 years. Our credit facilities bear a weighted average interest rate of 3.74% as of September 30, 2022.

Note 7. Hedging Activity and Fair Value Measurements

 

Hedging Activity

 

During the quarter ended March 31, 2022, we entered into interest rate swap contracts to hedge the interest rate fluctuations related to our outstanding debt. The effective date of the contract is December 31, 2022 and, thus, we shall have settlement dates each quarter, commencing March 31, 2023. Our contracts are designated as cash flow hedges since they are highly effective in offsetting changes in the cash flows attributable to forecasted LIBOR.

 

We record our hedge contracts at fair value and consider our credit risk for contracts in a liability position, and our counter-party’s credit risk for contracts in an asset position, in determining fair value. We assess our counter-party’s risk of non-performance when measuring the fair value of financial instruments in an asset position by evaluating their financial position, including cash on hand, as well as their credit ratings.

 

As of September 30, 2022, the fair value of interest rate swap contracts was in a net asset position of $9.2 million. We had 16 outstanding interest rate swap contracts to hedge $125 million related to our outstanding debt through November 2026. We assessed the risk of non-performance of the Company to these contracts and determined it was insignificant and, therefore, did not record any adjustment to fair value as of September 30, 2022.

 

We assess the effectiveness of our interest rate swap contracts by comparing the change in the fair value of the interest rate swap contracts to the change in the expected cash to be paid for the hedged item. The effective portion of the gain or loss on our interest rate swap contracts is reported as a component of accumulated other comprehensive income and is reclassified into earnings in the same line item in the income statement as the hedged item in the same period or periods during which the transaction affects earnings. The amount of gains, net, recognized in the “accumulated other comprehensive income” line item in the accompanying consolidated balance sheet as of September 30, 2022 that we expect will be reclassified to earnings within the next twelve months, is $9.2 million.

 

The fair value of our interest rate swap hedges that are classified in the accompanying consolidated balance sheets as of September 30, 2022 are as follows:

 

   Derivative Assets    Derivative Liabilities
   September 30, 2022    September 30, 2022
Derivatives designated as hedging instruments under Subtopic 815-20:  Balance Sheet Location  Fair Value     Balance Sheet Location  Fair Value 
                 
Derivative instruments:                   
Interest rate swap contracts   Other current assets   $9,197     Accrued liabilities   $- 
Total derivative instruments   Total derivative assets   $9,197     Total derivative liabilities   $- 

 

The ending accumulated balance for the interest rate swap contracts included in accumulated other comprehensive income was $9,197 as of September 30, 2022.

Fair Value Measurements

 

The Company accounts for financial assets and liabilities in accordance with accounting standards that define fair value and establish a framework for measuring fair value. The hierarchy prioritizes the inputs into three broad levels. Level 1 inputs are quoted prices (unadjusted) in active markets for identical assets or liabilities. Level 2 inputs are quoted prices for similar assets and liabilities in active markets or inputs that are observable for the asset or liability, either directly or indirectly through market corroboration, for substantially the full term of the financial instrument. Level 3 inputs are unobservable inputs based on the Company’s assumptions used to measure assets and liabilities at fair value. A financial asset’s or liability’s classification within the hierarchy is determined based on the lowest level input that is significant to the fair value measurement.

 

The carrying amounts of the Company’s financial instruments, including cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable, accounts payable and advances from customers approximate their fair value due to their relatively short-term maturities. The Company bases its fair value estimate for long term debt obligations on its internal valuation that all debt is floating rate debt based on current interest rates in Colombia.

 

The fair values of derivatives used to manage interest rate risks are based on LIBOR rates and interest rate swap curves. Measurement of our derivative assets and liabilities is considered a level 2 measurement. To carry out the swap valuation, the definition of the fixed leg (obligation) and variable leg (right) is used. Once the projected flows are obtained in both fixed and variable rates, the regression analysis is performed for prospective effectiveness test. The projection curve contains the forward interest rates to project flows at a variable rate and the discount curve contains the interest rates to discount future flows, using the one-month USD Libor curve.

 

As of September 30, 2022, financial instruments carried at amortized cost that do not approximate fair value consist of long-term debt. See Note 6 – Debt. The fair value of long-term debt was calculated based on an analysis of future cash flows discounted at current market rates, which are level 2 inputs.

 

The following table summarizes the fair value and carrying amounts of our long-term debt:

 

   September 30, 2022   December 31, 2021 
Fair Value   171,250    194,285 
Carrying Value   168,255    188,355

Vidrio Andino Joint Venture

 

On May 3, 2019, we consummated a joint venture agreement with Saint-Gobain, a world leader in the production of float glass, a key component of our manufacturing process, whereby we acquired a 25.8% minority ownership interest in Vidrio Andino, a Colombia-based subsidiary of Saint-Gobain. The purchase price for our interest in Vidrio Andino was $45 million, of which $34.1 million was paid in cash and $10.9 million paid through the contribution of land on December 9, 2020. On October 28, 2020, we acquired said land from a related party and paid for it with the issuance of an aggregate of 1,557,142 ordinary shares of the Company, valued at $7.00 per share, which represented an approximate 33% premium based on the closing stock price as of October 27, 2020.

 

The land will serve the purpose of developing a second float glass plant nearby our existing manufacturing facilities which we expect will carry significant efficiencies for us once it becomes operative, in which we will also have a 25.8% interest. The new plant will be funded with proceeds from the original cash contribution made by the Company, operating cashflows from the Bogota plant, debt incurred at the joint venture level that will not consolidate into the Company and an additional contribution by us of approximately $12.5 million if needed (based on debt availability as a first option).

 

In the ordinary course of business, we purchased $4,923 and $13,964 from Vidrio Andino during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022, respectively, compared to $4,129 and $10,957, during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021, respectively. We also had outstanding payables to Vidrio Andino for $4,398 and $2,834 as of September 30, 2022, and December 31, 2021, respectively. We recorded equity method income of $1,821 and $5,070 on our Consolidated Statement of Operations during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022, respectively, compared to $1,291 and $3,170 recorded during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021, respectively.

Note 11. Commitments and Contingencies

 

Commitments

 

As of September 30, 2022, the Company had an outstanding obligation to purchase an aggregate of at least $82,877 of certain raw materials from a specific supplier before November 30, 2030.

 

On May 3, 2019, we consummated a joint venture agreement with Saint-Gobain whereby we acquired a 25.8% minority ownership interest in Vidrio Andino. The purchase price for our interest in Vidrio Andino was $45 million, of which $34.1 million was paid in cash and $10.9 million was contributed through a parcel of land to be used for the building of a second factory. On October 28, 2020, the land was paid for through the issuance of an aggregate of 1,557,142 ordinary shares of the Company, at $7.00 per share, which represented an approximate 33% premium based on the Company´s share price as of October 27, 2020.

 

The joint venture agreement includes plans to build a new plant in Galapa, Colombia that will be located approximately 20 miles from our primary manufacturing facility, in which we will also have a 25.8% interest. The new plant will be funded with proceeds from the original cash contribution made by the Company, operating cashflows from the Bogota plant, debt incurred at the joint venture level that will not consolidate into the Company and an additional contribution by us of approximately $12.5 million to be paid if needed (based on debt availability as a first option).

 

General Legal Matters

 

From time to time, the Company is involved in legal matters arising in the regular course of business. Some disputes are derived directly from our construction projects, related to supply and installation, and even though deemed ordinary, they may involve significant monetary damages. We are also subject to other type of litigations arising from employment practices, worker’s compensation, automobile claims and general liability. It is very difficult to predict precisely what the outcome of these litigations might be. However, with the information at our disposition as this time, there are no indications that such claims will result in a material adverse effect on the business, financial condition or results of operations of the Company.

 

Note 12. Subsequent Events

 

On October 6, 2022 we entered into a one-time settlement of a project. The conditions were determined to have existed as of the date of the balance sheet and therefore were recorded the related expenses on the results of operations and accounts payable on the balance sheet as of September 30, 2022.

Overview

 

We are a vertically integrated manufacturer, supplier and installer of architectural glass, windows and associated aluminum products for the global commercial and residential construction markets. With a focus on innovation, combined with providing highly specified products with the highest quality standards at competitive prices, we have developed a leadership position in each of our core markets. In the United States, which is our largest market, we were ranked as the second largest glass fabricator as well as the second largest metal company serving the United States in 2021 by Glass Magazine. In addition, we believe we are the leading glass transformation company in Colombia. Our customers, which include developers, general contractors or installers for hotels, office buildings, shopping centers, airports, universities, hospitals and multi-family and residential buildings, look to us as a value-added partner based on our product development capabilities, our high-quality products and our unwavering commitment to exceptional service.

 

We have more than 38 years of experience in architectural glass and aluminum profile structure assembly. We transform a variety of glass products, including tempered safety, double thermo-acoustic and laminated glass. Our finished glass products are installed in a wide variety of buildings across a number of different applications, including floating facades, curtain walls, windows, doors, handrails, and interior and bathroom spatial dividers. We also produce aluminum products such as profiles, rods, bars, plates and other hardware used in the manufacturing of windows.

 

Our products are manufactured in a 3.8 million square foot, state-of-the-art manufacturing complex in Barranquilla, Colombia that provides easy access to North, Central and South America, the Caribbean, and the Pacific. Our products can be found on some of the most distinctive buildings in these regions, including One Thousand Museum (Miami), Paramount Miami Worldcenter (Miami), Hub50House (Boston), Via 57 West (New York), Ae’o Tower (Honolulu), Salesforce Tower (San Francisco), Trump Plaza (Panama), and Departmental Legislative Assembly (Bolivia). Our track record of successfully delivering high profile projects has earned us an increasing number of opportunities across the United States, evidenced by our expanding backlog and overall revenue growth.

 

Our structural competitive advantage is underpinned by our low-cost manufacturing footprint, vertically integrated business model and geographic location. Our integrated facilities in Colombia and distribution and services operations in Florida provide us with a significant cost advantage in both manufacturing and distribution, and we continue to invest in these operations to expand our operational capabilities. Our lower cost manufacturing footprint allows us to offer competitive prices for our customers, while also providing innovative, high quality and high value-added products, together with consistent and reliable service. We have historically generated high margin organic growth based on our position as a value-added solutions provider for our customers.

 

We have a strong presence in the Florida market, which represents a substantial portion of our revenue stream and backlog. Our success in Florida has primarily been achieved through sustained organic growth, with further penetration taking place into other highly populated areas of the United States. As part of our strategy to become a fully vertically integrated company, we have supplemented our organic growth with some acquisitions that have afforded us incremental control over our supply chain while maintaining efficient lead times. In 2016, we completed the acquisition of ESW, which gave us control over the distribution of products into the United States from our manufacturing facilities in Colombia. In March 2017, we completed the acquisition of GM&P, a consulting and glazing installation business that was previously our largest installation customer.

 

19

 

 

The continued diversification of the group’s presence and product portfolio is a core component of our strategy. In particular, we are actively seeking to expand our presence in United States outside of Florida. Since 2017, we have been expanding our presence in U.S. residential markets which went from less than 5% of our sales to nearly 36% of our revenues for the full year 2021. We believe that the quality of our products, coupled with our ability to price competitively given our structural advantages on cost and our efficient lead times given our vertical integration, will allow us to generate further growth in the future.

 

Our company has focused on working with The Power of Quality, always ensuring that our vision of sustainability is immersed into every aspect of our business, including social, environmental, economic and governance variables (ESG), that help us make decisions and create value for our stakeholders. We carry out a series of initiatives based on our global sustainability strategy, which is supported on three fundamental pillars: promoting an ethical and responsible continuous growth, leading eco-efficiency and innovation and empowering our environment. As part of this strategy the Company has voluntarily adhered to UN Global Compact Principles since 2017 and in pursuit of our cooperation with the attainment of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) joined in 2021 a program to dynamize, strengthen and make visible the management of greenhouse gas emissions as a carbon neutral strategy set out by the Colombian government for 2050.

Comparison of quarterly periods ended September 30, 2022 and 2021

 

Revenues

 

The Company’s operating revenues increased $70.1 million or 53.3%, from $131.7 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2021, to $201.8 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2022.

 

Strong sales during the third quarter of 2022 were driven by strong U.S. residential and commercial market activity, where sales increased $70.3 million, or 57.0%, from $123.2 million in 2021 to $193.5 million in 2022. Commercial market sales increased $43.8 million, or 60.6% from $72.2 million to $116.0 million as we continue to execute on our growing backlog. Single family residential market sales increased $26.3 million, or 44.3%, from $59.4 million in 2021 to $85.8 million in 2022, and account for 42.5% of total sales during the quarter ended September 30, 2022. Sales to Latin-American markets, including Colombia, decreased $0.1 million, or 1.7%, from $8.4 million in 2021 to $8.3 million in 2022.

Gross profit

 

Gross profit increased $53.7 million, or 104.0%, to $105.3 million during the three months ended September 30, 2022, compared with $51.5 million during the same period of 2021. This resulted in gross profit margin reaching 52.2% during the third quarter of 2022, up from 39.2% during the third quarter of 2021. The 1,300-basis point improvement in gross margin can be mainly attributable to operating leverage
