MINERALS TECHNOLOGIES INC. AND SUBSIDIARY COMPANIES
NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(Unaudited)

Note 1.  Basis of Presentation and Summary of Significant Accounting Policies


The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared by management of Minerals Technologies Inc. (the “Company”, “MTI”, “we”, or “us”) in accordance with the rules and regulations of the United States Securities and Exchange Commission. Accordingly, certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles have been condensed or omitted. Therefore, these financial statements should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and notes thereto contained in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019. In the opinion of management, all adjustments, consisting solely of normal recurring adjustments necessary for a fair presentation of the financial information for the periods indicated, have been included. The results for the three-month and nine-month periods ended September 27, 2020 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ending December 31, 2020.

Company Operations


The Company is a resource- and technology-based company that develops, produces and markets worldwide a broad range of specialty mineral, mineral-based and synthetic mineral products and supporting systems and services.


The Company has four reportable segments: Performance Materials, Specialty Minerals, Refractories and Energy Services.

The Performance Materials segment is a leading global supplier of bentonite and bentonite-related products and leonardite. This segment also provides products for non-residential construction, environmental and infrastructure projects worldwide, serving customers engaged in a broad range of construction projects.

The Specialty Minerals segment produces and sells the synthetic mineral product precipitated calcium carbonate (“PCC”) and processed mineral product quicklime (“lime”), and mines mineral ores then processes and sells natural mineral products, primarily limestone and talc.

The Refractories segment produces and markets monolithic and shaped refractory materials and specialty products, services and application and measurement equipment, and calcium metal and metallurgical wire products.

The Energy Services segment provides services to improve the production, costs, compliance, and environmental impact of activities performed in the oil and gas industry. This segment offers a range of patented and unpatented technologies, products and services to the upstream and downstream oil and gas sector throughout the world.


Use of Estimates


The Company employs accounting policies that are in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles and require management to make estimates and assumptions relating to the reporting of assets and liabilities and the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the consolidated financial statements and the reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the reported period. Significant estimates include those related to revenue recognition, valuation of long-lived assets, goodwill and other intangible assets, income taxes, including valuation allowances, and pension plan assumptions. Actual results could differ from those estimates.


Recently Adopted Accounting Standards

Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments


In June 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-13, “Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments”, which replaces existing incurred loss impairment guidance and establishes a single allowance framework for financial assets carried at amortized cost.  The Company adopted this guidance on January 1, 2020 using a modified retrospective transition method.  The Company did not record a cumulative-effect adjustment upon adoption of this standard.  Adoption of this standard did not have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

Recently Issued Accounting Standards


Changes to accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (U.S. GAAP) are established by the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) in the form of accounting standards updates (ASUs) to the FASB’s Accounting Standards Codification. The Company considers the applicability and impact of all ASUs.  ASUs not listed below were assessed and determined to be either not applicable or are expected to have minimal impact on our consolidated financial position and results of operations.

Investments - Equity Securities, Investments - Equity Method and Joint Ventures, and Derivatives and Hedging


In January 2020, the FASB issued ASU 2020-01, “Investments - Equity Securities, Investments - Equity Method and Joint Ventures, and Derivatives and Hedging”, which addresses the accounting for the transition into and out of the equity method and measuring certain purchased options and forward contracts to acquire investments.  The standard is effective for interim and annual periods beginning on or after December 15, 2020.  The adoption of this standard is not expected to have a material impact on the Company’s financial statements.

Note 2.  COVID-19


In March 2020, the World Health Organization categorized the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) as a pandemic. Around the world, the Company has been closely adhering to all government regulations as they are issued. Applicable governmental directives across the United States and other global locations have typically permitted the continued operation of essential critical infrastructure sectors. As the Company supplies products and services to many essential industries, including critical manufacturing and energy sectors, all of our operations have qualified as essential businesses. Accordingly, all of the Company’s production facilities are currently operational. In a few locations, however, sites were temporarily impacted by the pandemic.


The recent economic environment related to the rapidly evolving global pandemic, which has slowed business activity in several key end-markets, negatively impacted the Company’s second and third quarter results and may continue to impact our results in the fourth quarter. The extent to which our operations will continue to be impacted by the pandemic will depend largely on future developments, including the continued severity of the pandemic and future actions by government authorities to contain it or treat its impact. These conditions are highly uncertain and cannot be accurately predicted.  The Company will continue to actively monitor and respond to the COVID-19 pandemic.


As we cannot predict the duration or scope of the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on our customers and suppliers, the negative financial impact to our future results cannot be reasonably estimated, but could be material.  We are actively managing the business to maintain cash flow and we have significant liquidity. We believe that these factors will allow us to meet our anticipated funding requirements.


On March 27, 2020, the U.S. government enacted the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (“CARES Act”) which includes modifications to the limitation on business interest expense and net operating loss provisions, and provides a payment delay of employer payroll taxes during 2020 after the date of enactment with 50% due by December 31, 2021 and the remaining 50% due by December 31, 2022. The CARES Act is not expected to have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.
