As we have throughout the turbulence, we’ve leveraged our Snap-on Value Creation Processes to maintain and further develop our ongoing advantages in our people, our brands, and our products. In that regard, we were again honored with product awards from both Motor Magazine and Professional Tool & Equipment News, reflecting our success in connecting with customers and translating that deep insight into winning innovations, adding to the strength of our product line-up and driving our significant progress. Finally, I want to thank our franchisees and associates worldwide for their unfailing dedication, for their valuable contributions, and for their confidence in our possibilities as we proceed through the remainder of 2021 and beyond."

Outlook

COVID-19, its subsequent variants, as well as related supply chain inefficiencies, continue to impact economic activity worldwide in 2021. Snap-on is accommodating to the virus-related turbulence and is pursuing opportunities in this mixed environment. The company believes that our markets and our operations have demonstrated and possess considerable resilience against the impact of the virus and that there will be ongoing advancement in the midst of the pandemic. The trajectory of progress, however, may be uncertain due to the evolving nature and duration of the current situation and in 2021, quarterly year-over-year comparisons to 2020 performance may be less meaningful than comparisons to pre-pandemic periods.

Snap-on expects to make continued progress along its defined runways for coherent growth, leveraging capabilities already demonstrated in the automotive repair arena and developing and expanding its professional customer base, not only in automotive repair, but in adjacent markets, additional geographies and other areas, including extending in critical industries, where the cost and penalties for failure can be high. In pursuit of these initiatives, the company now anticipates that capital expenditures in 2021 will approximate $90 million, of which $53.8 million was incurred in the first nine months of the year. Snap-on continues to respond to the global macroeconomic challenges through its Rapid Continuous Improvement (RCI) process and other cost reduction initiatives.

Snap-on currently anticipates that its full year 2021 effective income tax rate will be in the range of 23% to 24%.

Non-GAAP Measures

References in this release to "organic sales" refer to sales from continuing operations calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States ("GAAP"), adjusted to exclude acquisition-related sales and the impact of foreign currency translation. Management evaluates the company’s sales performance based on organic sales growth, which primarily reflects growth from the company’s existing businesses as a result of increased output, expanded customer base, geographic expansion, new product development and pricing changes, and excludes sales contributions from acquired operations the company did not own as of the comparable prior-year reporting period. Organic sales also exclude the effects of foreign currency translation as foreign currency translation is subject to volatility that can obscure underlying business trends. Management believes that the non-GAAP financial measure of organic sales is meaningful to investors as it provides them with useful information to aid in identifying underlying growth trends in the company’s businesses and facilitates comparisons of its sales performance with prior periods.

For the nine months ended September 26, 2020, the company is including operating earnings before financial services, consolidated operating earnings, net earnings, diluted earnings per share and its effective tax rate, all as adjusted to exclude the impact of $11.5 million of restructuring charges ($9.3 million after tax or $0.17 per diluted share) for exit and disposal activities that occurred in the six months ended June 27, 2020.

Management believes that adjusting these measures to exclude the restructuring charges provides more meaningful year-over-year comparisons of the company’s 2021 operating performance. For a reconciliation of the 2020 adjusted metrics, see "Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures" below.
