Financial report summary

  • Our distribution business is highly dependent on our ability to maintain favorable relationships with suppliers.
  • We depend on a global network of suppliers to source our products, including our own branded products and products we have exclusive distribution rights to. Product quality, warranty claims or safety concerns could negatively impact our sales and expose us to litigation.
  • We face intense competition both from within our industry and from other leisure product alternatives.
  • More aggressive competition by store- and internet-based mass merchants and large pool or irrigation supply retailers could adversely affect our sales.
  • We depend on our ability to attract, develop and retain highly qualified personnel.
  • Past growth may not be indicative of future growth.
  • We are subject to inventory management risks. Insufficient inventory may result in lost sales opportunities or delayed revenue, while excess inventory may negatively impact our gross margin.
  • The cost of chemical products could increase our cost of sales and adversely affect our results of operations and financial condition.
  • We store chemicals, fertilizers and other combustible materials that involve fire, safety and casualty risks.
  • We conduct business internationally, which exposes us to additional risks.
  • Changes in tax laws and accounting standards related to tax matters have caused, and may in the future cause, fluctuations in our effective tax rate.
  • We may be adversely affected by changes in LIBOR reporting practices or the method in which LIBOR is determined.
  • Disruptions from natural or man-made disasters or extreme weather, public safety issues, geopolitical events and security issues, labor or trade disputes and similar events could have a material adverse effect on our business.
Management Discussion
  • On March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization declared the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) a pandemic, and on March 13, 2020, the United States declared a national emergency. States and cities have taken various measures in response to COVID-19, including mandating the closure of certain businesses and encouraging or requiring citizens to avoid large gatherings. Most of our North American operations are and have been continuously open for business as we are designated as an essential business in almost all of our markets. Our operations in Europe closed for a short period during the first half of 2020 in France, Spain and Italy, in order to comply with local authorities’ orders. Our products are used to maintain and protect outdoor commercial, residential and municipal environments through chemically-balanced, virus and bacteria-free swimming pool water. We also supply products used in the prevention of runoff, flood, fire and other natural disasters. These products are essential to the health and safety of the general public. As a result, our supply chain generally remains intact, with our customers continuing to meet end-user needs.
