The reduction in profits in 2020 can largely to attributed to COVID-19 pandemic that slowed sales worldwide. 2018 was a significant year in United States which passed the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act which reduced the federal corporate income tax from 35% to 21%.

As a result of the worldwide economic downturn in 2009, the lowest net income as a percent of sales occurred in 2009 at -12.6%. This was the first time that net income had been a negative number for the consolidated public companies.
