Financial report summary

?
Risks
  • Our Lime and Limestone Operations are affected by general economic and regulatory conditions in the U.S. and specific economic and regulatory conditions in particular industries.
  • In the normal course of our Lime and Limestone Operations, we face various business and financial risks that could have a material adverse effect on our financial position, results of operations, cash flows and competitive position. Not all risks are foreseeable or within our ability to control.
  • We quote our lime and limestone products on a delivered price basis to certain customers, which requires us to estimate future delivery costs. Our actual delivery costs may exceed these estimates, which would reduce our profitability.
  • Governmental fiscal and budgetary constraints, legislative impasses, and extended government shutdowns have in the past, and may in the future, adversely impact our financial condition and results of operations in various ways.
  • Our mining and other operations are subject to operating risks that are beyond our control, which could result in materially increased operating expenses and decreased production and shipment levels that could materially adversely affect our Lime and Limestone Operations and their profitability.
  • We incur environmental compliance costs and liabilities in our Lime and Limestone Operations, including capital, maintenance and operating costs, with respect to pollution control equipment, the cost of ongoing monitoring programs, the cost of reclamation and remediation efforts and other similar costs and liabilities relating to our compliance with Environmental Laws. We expect these costs and liabilities to continue or increase, including possible new costs, taxes and limitations on operations, including regulation of greenhouse gas emissions. Similar environmental costs and liabilities may also be faced by some of our customers.
  • The lime and limestone industry is highly regionalized and competitive.
  • To maintain our competitive position in the lime and limestone industry, we may need to continue to increase the efficiency of our operations and expand production capacity, obtain financing for any such projects and acquisitions at reasonable interest rates and acceptable terms and sell any resulting increased production at acceptable prices.
  • We may be adversely affected by any disruption in, or failure of, our information technology systems, including due to cyber-security risks and incidents.
