Management Discussion
  • CT revenue for the year ended December 31, 2020, decreased $69.0 million, or 57.8% compared to 2019. The decrease in revenue was largely a result of the volatile macro-environment. Contributing to the volatility were OPEC-related actions disrupting market pricing and resulting in oversupply of hydrocarbons, and the COVID-19 impact on productivity and customers during the year. Partially offsetting the decrease were new revenues in 2020 from the introduction of sanitizing, surface cleaning and disinfecting products.
  • Loss from operations for the CT segment increased $42.8 million for the year ended December 31, 2020, compared to 2019. The increased loss from operations for 2020 was due to impairment charges of fixed and long-lived assets of $54.7 million, further impacted by lower revenue related to reduced demand. The provision for excess and obsolete inventory in 2020 included charges of $8.4 million. In 2020, the Company recognized a loss of $9.9 million for the amended terpene agreement due to adjustments to the Company’s expected usage, combined with product mix changes using lower concentration of terpene. In 2019, the Company recognized a loss of $15.8 million for the amended terpene agreement.
