“We’re encouraged by our first quarter results and with the progress made since the virus first appeared during this period last year,” said Nick Pinchuk, Snap-on chairman and chief executive officer. “Our performance shows significant improvements from the pandemic-shocked first quarter of 2020, and demonstrates our growing accommodation to the virus environment driving an upward trajectory. We also believe the comparisons to pre-pandemic 2019, particularly in the Snap-on Tools Group, clearly testify to the strength and resilience of our markets and operations throughout the challenges of the COVID environment, attest to the continuing opportunities along our varied and abundant runways for growth, and confirm our ability to take full advantage of those possibilities. In pursuit of expanding with repair shop owners and managers, during the quarter we completed the coherent acquisition of Dealer-FX Group, Inc. to extend our strategic visibility into new vehicle technologies and platforms, as well as to enhance our expertise and position with respect to dealership service and repair operations. We continue to build our ongoing advantage in our products, brands and people, further developing the capabilities that enabled our performance in the quarter, and that we believe, will facilitate increased progress as we move forward through 2021. Finally, I want to thank our franchisees and associates worldwide for their ongoing contributions, unfailing dedication, and continued confidence in our future.”
