Basis of Presentation

The accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America (“GAAP”) for interim financial information and in conformity with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulation S-X.  Accordingly, these unaudited financial statements do not include all of the information and footnotes required by GAAP for complete financial statements and, therefore, should be read in conjunction with the financial statements and related notes contained in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2014.

The unaudited condensed financial statements included in this document have been prepared on the same basis as the annual condensed financial statements and in management’s opinion reflect all adjustments, including normal recurring adjustments, necessary to present fairly the Company’s financial position, results of operations and cash flows for the interim periods presented.  We have made estimates and judgments affecting the amounts reported in this document.  The actual results that we experience may differ materially from our estimates.  In the opinion of management, the disclosures included in these financial statements are adequate to make the information presented not misleading.

Operating results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2015, are not necessarily indicative of results for the year ending December 31, 2015.

We currently operate in two segments, specialty petrochemical products and specialty synthetic waxes.  All revenue originates from United States’ sources, and all long-lived assets owned are located in the United States.

The Company owns a 35% interest in AMAK, a Saudi Arabian closed joint stock company which owns and is developing mining assets in Saudi Arabia.  We account for our investment under the equity method of accounting.   See Note 15.
