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, 2018.

The unaudited condensed financial statements included in this document have been prepared on the same basis as the annual 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 months ended March 31, 2019 are not necessarily indicative of results for the year ending December 31, 2019.

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

In addition, we own a 33% interest in AMAK, a Saudi Arabian closed joint stock company, which owns, operates and is developing mining assets in Saudi Arabia. We account for our investment under the equity method of accounting. See Note 16.

Accounting Standards Adopted in 2019

In February 2016, the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") issued ASU 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842), as amended by ASU 2017-13, 2018-01, 2018-10, 2018-11, and 2019-01, in order to increase transparency and comparability among organizations by recognizing lease assets and lease liabilities on the balance sheet for those leases classified as operating leases under prior GAAP and disclosing key information about leasing arrangements. The new standard requires that a lessee should recognize a liability to make lease payments (the lease liability) and a right-of-use asset representing its right to use the underlying asset for the lease term on the balance sheet. The Company adopted ASC 842 in the first quarter of 2019 utilizing the modified retrospective transition approach. The Company has elected (1) the package of practical expedients, which permits it not to reassess under the new standard its prior conclusions about lease identification, lease classification, and initial direct costs for any existing leases as of the adoption date, and (2) the hindsight practical expedient when determining lease term and assessing impairment of right-of-use assets. In addition, the Company elected the practical expedients related to (1) certain classes of underlying asset to not separate non-lease components from lease components and (2) the short-term lease recognition exemption for all leases that qualify. The adoption of ASC 842 on January 1, 2019 resulted in the recognition of right-of-use assets of approximately $17.0 million and lease liabilities for operating leases of approximately $17.0 million on its Consolidated Balance Sheets, with no material impact to retained earnings or Consolidated Statements of Operations. See Note 8 for further information regarding the impact of the adoption of ASC 842 on the Company's consolidated financial statements.
