NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(unaudited)
1. Significant Accounting Policies
Basis of Presentation
In the opinion of management, the accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements contain all adjustments necessary for a fair presentation of results for such periods. Albany International Corp. (Albany, the Registrant, the Company, we, us, or our) consolidates the financial results of its subsidiaries for all periods presented. The results for any interim period are not necessarily indicative of results for the full year.
The preparation of financial statements in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the amounts reported in Albany International Corp.’s Consolidated Financial Statements and accompanying Notes. Actual results could differ materially from those estimates.
The information included in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q should be read in conjunction with Albany International Corp.’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021.

2. Reportable Segments and Revenue Recognition
In accordance with applicable disclosure guidance for enterprise segments and related information, the internal organization that is used by management for making operating decisions and assessing performance is used as the basis for our reportable segments.
Machine Clothing:
The Machine Clothing (“MC”) segment supplies permeable and impermeable belts used in the manufacture of paper, paperboard, tissue and towel, nonwovens, fiber cement and several other industrial applications. We sell our MC products directly to customer end-users in countries across the globe. Our products, manufacturing processes, and distribution channels for MC are substantially the same in each region of the world in which we operate.
We design, manufacture, and market paper machine clothing (used in the manufacturing of paper, paperboard, tissue and towel) for each section of the paper machine and for every grade of paper. Paper machine clothing products are customized, consumable products of technologically sophisticated design that utilize polymeric materials in a complex structure.
Albany Engineered Composites:
The Albany Engineered Composites (“AEC”) segment provides highly engineered, advanced composite structures to customers in the commercial and defense aerospace industries. The segment includes Albany Safran Composites, LLC (“ASC”), in which our customer SAFRAN Group (“Safran”) owns a 10 percent noncontrolling interest. AEC, through ASC, is the exclusive supplier of the LEAP program of advanced composite fan blades and fan cases under a long-term supply contract. The LEAP engine is used on the Airbus A320neo, Boeing 737 MAX, and COMAC 919 aircraft . AEC's largest aerospace customer is the SAFRAN Group and sales to SAFRAN (consisting primarily of fan blades and cases for CFM's LEAP engine) accounted for approximately 12 percent of the Company's consolidated Net sales in 2021. AEC net sales to Safran were $125.4 million and $81.6 million in the first nine months of 2022 and 2021, respectively. The total of Accounts receivable, Contract assets and Noncurrent receivables due from Safran amounted to $76.4 million and $79.6 million as of September 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021, respectively.
Other significant programs by AEC include the Sikorsky CH-53K, F-35, JASSM, and Boeing 787 programs. AEC also supplies vacuum waste tanks for the Boeing 7-Series programs, and specialty components for the Rolls Royce lift fan on the F-35, as well as the fan case for the GE9X engine. In 2021, approximately 47 percent of AEC sales were related to U.S. government contracts or programs.

A subsidiary within our Machine Clothing segment has been a partner in a joint venture (“JV”) that supplies paper machine clothing products to local papermakers in Russia. In March 2022, we made the decision to cease doing business in Russia, including giving notice to our JV partner of our intent to exit the venture. As a result, we recognized $1.6 million expense in the consolidated statement of operations, representing reserves against the risk of uncollectible customer receivables and obsolescence of certain inventory destined for Russian customers. We also wrote down the net book value of our investment in the aforementioned JV to reflect our intent to exit such venture, resulting in $0.8 million impairment loss during the first quarter of 2022.

In the third quarter, we took actions to settle certain pension plan liabilities in the U.S., leading to charges totaling $49.1 million, which were included as Corporate expenses and other. This led to a reduction of unfunded pension liabilities of $6.2 million.
Revenue Recognition:
Products and services provided under long-term contracts represent a significant portion of sales in the Albany Engineered Composites segment and we account for these contracts using the percentage of completion (actual cost to estimated cost) method. That method requires significant judgment and estimation, which could be considerably different if the underlying circumstances were to change. When adjustments in estimated contract revenues or costs are required, any changes from prior estimates are included in earnings in the period the change occurs. Changes in the estimated profitability of long-term contracts could be caused by increases or decreases in the contract value, revisions to customer delivery requirements, updated labor or overhead rates, factors affecting the supply chain, changes in the evaluation of contract risks and opportunities, or other factors. Changes in the estimated profitability of long-term contracts increased operating income by $2.6 million for the third quarter of 2022 and $2.0 million for the first nine months of 2022. Adjustments in the estimated profitability of long-term contracts increased operating income by $2.1 million and $2.4 million for the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2021, respectively.

We do not disclose the value of unsatisfied performance obligations for contracts with an original expected duration of one year or less. Contracts in the MC segment are generally for periods of less than a year. Most contracts in the AEC segment are relatively short duration firm-fixed-price orders. Remaining performance obligations on contracts that had an original duration of greater than one year totaled $600 million and $155 million as of September 30, 2022 and 2021, respectively, and related primarily to firm contracts in the AEC segment. Of the remaining performance obligations as of September 30, 2022, we expect to recognize as revenue approximately $46 million during 2022, $124 million during 2023, $107 million during 2024, and the remainder thereafter.

3. Pensions and Other Postretirement Benefit Plans
The Company has defined benefit pension plans covering certain U.S. and non-U.S. employees. The Company also provides certain postretirement benefits to retired employees in the U.S. and Canada. The Company accrues the cost of providing these benefits during the active service period of the employees.
The composition of the net periodic benefit cost for the nine months ended September 30, 2022 and 2021, was as follows:

Settlement charge49,128    
Net benefit cost/(credit)$50,816 $2,462 $(952)$(745)
The amount of net benefit cost/(credit) is determined at the beginning of each year and generally only varies from quarter to quarter when a significant event occurs, such as a curtailment or a settlement. In the third quarter, we took actions to settle certain pension plan liabilities for a plan in the U.S., leading to charges totaling $49.1 million. No similar charges were incurred in the prior year.
Service cost for defined benefit pension and postretirement plans are reported in the same line item as other compensation costs arising from services rendered by the pertinent employees during the period. Other components of net periodic benefit cost are included in the line item Other (income)/expense, net in the Consolidated Statements of Income.

The weaker Euro during the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2022 led to the gains on foreign currency related transactions during such periods.

(1) Calculated at estimated annual tax rates of 28.9% and 30.0% for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022 and 2021.
Income tax expense for the quarter was computed in accordance with ASC 740-270, Income Taxes – Interim Reporting. Under this method, loss jurisdictions, which cannot recognize a tax benefit with regard to their generated losses, are excluded from the annual effective tax rate (AETR) calculation and their taxes will be recorded discretely in each quarter.
The Company's policy for releasing income tax effects from accumulated other comprehensive income is the specific identification approach, whereas these items are released to income tax expense when the individual items are disposed of, terminated or extinguished.
The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act lowered the U.S. corporate tax rate from 35% to 21% as of December 31, 2017, creating residual tax effects as a result of the remeasurement of deferred tax assets and liabilities originally established in other comprehensive income. As a result of the U.S. pension liability settlement (see Note 3), and consistent with the Company's policy, in the third quarter of 2022, the Company recorded a net tax benefit of $5.2 million for the release of the residual tax effects within other comprehensive income related to the U.S. pension settlement.
