|Segment Reporting [Abstract]
The Company’s products and operations are managed and reported in two operating segments: Fire Safety and Specialty Products.
The Fire Safety segment manufactures and sells fire retardant and firefighting foam products, as well as specialized equipment and services typically offered in conjunction with these retardant and foam products.
The Specialty Products segment produces and sells P2S5 used in several end markets and applications, including lubricant additives, various agricultural applications, various mining applications, and emerging electric battery technologies. Within the lubricant additives end market, currently the Company’s largest end market application, P2S5 is primarily used in the production of a family of compounds called ZDDP, which is considered an essential component in the formulation of engine oils with its main function to provide anti-wear protection to engine components. P2S5 is also used in pesticide and mining chemicals applications.
Interest income, interest expense, other income (expense) and certain corporate operating expenses are neither allocated to the segments nor included in the measures of segment performance by the chief operating decision-maker (“CODM”). The corporate category is not considered to be a segment. The CODM is the Company's CEO.
The Company’s CODM uses the segment net sales and Adjusted EBITDA to assess the ongoing performance of the Company’s business segments and to allocate resources. The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, as adjusted on a consistent basis for certain non-recurring or unusual items in a balanced manner and on a segment basis. These non-recurring or unusual items may include acquisition and integration related costs, management fees and other non-recurring items.
