Oil-Dri Corporation of America engages in developing, manufacturing, and/or marketing sorbent products. Segments The company has two major customer groups, Retail and Wholesale Products Group and Business to Business Products Group. The Retail and Wholesale Products Group customers include mass merchandisers, wholesale clubs, drugstore chains, pet specialty retail outlets, dollar stores, retail grocery stores, distributors of industrial cleanup and automotive products, environmental service companies and sports field product users. The Business to Business Products Group customers include processors and refiners of edible oils, petroleum-based oils and biodiesel fuel; manufacturers of animal feed and agricultural chemicals; distributors of animal health and nutrition products; and marketers of consumer products. Products The company’s sorbent products are principally produced from clay minerals, primarily consisting of montmorillonite and attapulgite, and to a lesser extent, other clay-like sorbent materials, such as Antelope shale, which the company refers to collectively as its ‘clay’ or its ‘minerals’. The company also produces Oil-Dri branded floor absorbents, Agsorb and Verge agricultural chemical carriers, and ConditionAde and Calibrin enterosorbents used in animal feed. Examples of the company’s adsorbent products are Oil-Dri synthetic sorbents, which are used for industrial cleanup; and Pure-Flo, Perform and Select bleaching clay products, which act as a filtration media for edible oils, fats and tallows. Also, the company’s Ultra-Clear product serves as a purification aid for petroleum-based oils and by-products. Agricultural and Horticultural Products The company produces a range of granular and powdered mineral absorbent products that are used for crop protection chemical carriers, drying agents, bulk processing aids, growing media components and seed enhancement media. The company’s brands include Agsorb, an agricultural chemical carrier and drying agent; Verge, an engineered granule agricultural chemical carrier; Flo-Fre, a highly absorbent microgranule flowability aid; Terra-Green, an improving media supplement; and Pel-Unite, an animal feed binder. Agsorb and Verge carriers are used as an alternative to agricultural sprays. The clay granules absorb active ingredients and are then delivered directly into, or on top of, the ground providing a more precise application than chemical sprays. Verge carriers are spherical, uniform-sized granules with very low dust. Agsorb drying agent is blended into fertilizer-pesticide blends applied by farmers to absorb moisture and improve flowability. Agsorb also acts as a flowability aid for fertilizers and chemicals used in the lawn and garden market. Flo-Fre microgranules are used by grain processors and other large handlers of bulk products to soak up excess moisture, which prevents caking. Animal Health and Nutrition Products The company produces, or uses contract processors to produce, various products used in the livestock feed industry. Majority of these products are sold under the Amlan trademark. The company’s various Calibrin and ConditionAde products are used in animal feed and each has different attributes that improve animal health and development, such as adsorbing naturally occurring mycotoxins or managing intestinal bacterial and fungal biotoxins. The company’s MD-09 moisture manager product is another feed additive for the reduction of wet droppings in poultry. Pel-Unite and Pel-Unite Plus products are specialized animal feed pellet binders. These products are sold through a network of feed products distributors in the United States and/or through agreements with animal health and nutrition products distributors in Latin America, Africa, the Middle East, and Asia. Beginning in 2014, these products were also sold by sales people employed by the company’s subsidiary located in China. Bleaching Clay and Purification Aid Products The company produces a range of bleaching, purification and filtration applications used by edible oil, jet fuel and other petroleum-based product processors worldwide. Bleaching clays are used
