Deere & Company Q2 Presentation


Comments from Cory Reed, Pres. - Production:

"Over the course of the last 9 months, fundamentals for large ag production systems have steadily improved, driving stronger economic results for our customers and enhanced visibility for our equipment order books."

"Given the positive environmental backdrop, order activity is up significantly. and all of our large ag order banks are now complete through the end of the fiscal year. For select product lines such as four-wheel drives and 8R tractors, we're now taking orders for fiscal year '22 and have visibility through the first half of the year. Furthermore, we'll open our early order program for planters and sprayers in June, which will yield some additional data points on demand for 2022."

"Furthermore, labor markets are extremely tight, delaying efforts to ramp up. To date, we have experienced frequent disruptions. However, our factory managers and supply management teams have done an extraordinary job, keeping our production schedules mostly intact without yet resorting to material work stoppages. While many of these spot disruptions are on account of various supplies, procurement of semiconductor chips remains a significant risk to our production schedule for the remainder of the year."

"To date, our suppliers have worked diligently to ensure our products continue their vital role in providing food security and critical infrastructure. And we're cautiously optimistic that they will continue to meet demand and help us ensure continuous service to our customers."

"The industry is forecast to be up roughly 10% as higher commodity prices strengthened business conditions in the arable segment, offsetting some weaknesses in dairy and livestock. Our Mannheim tractor order book extends through the end of the fiscal year, demonstrating continued progress towards executing our regional strategy focused on large and precision ag. In South America, we expect industry sales of tractors and combines to increase about 20%."

Highlights from 2020 CEO's Letter to Shareholders

John May
Chairman and Chief Executive Officer

 John May CEO John Deere

 "These promising factors set the stage for the company’s bold new operating plan taking effect in 2021, which intensifies our focus on technology, speed, and efficiency. Deere’s smart industrial strategy, we believe, could revolutionize agriculture and construction by accelerating the integration of technology with our legacy of manufacturing excellence. The strategy aims to deliver intelligent, connected machines and applications that unlock value for customers and do so in a sustainable, profitable manner."

"As the centerpiece of our smart industrial effort, company operations were reorganized around production systems, representing the way customers work. This compares with the previous structure of being aligned by product platforms or geographies. Production-system teams assess all the steps needed to accomplish a job on the farm or work site by a particular customer segment, such as corn and soybean farmers or roadbuilders. The teams then develop a comprehensive set of products and services that can best meet the needs of those customers."

"In addition, operations for technology development – our “tech stack” – were consolidated under a chief technology officer. The move leverages our ability to rapidly develop advanced technologies and bring new products to market. As well, our customer support and aftermarket capabilities were combined into a new lifecyclesolutions unit. This aligns with our goal of supporting customers over the lifetime of our products, and it will help drive growth in parts sales and service for the company and its dealers"
