Oil-Dri Corporation of America develops, manufactures and markets sorbent products. The company’s sorbent products are principally produced from clay minerals, primarily consisting of montmorillonite and attapulgite, and other clay-like sorbent materials, such as Antelope shale, which is referred to as ‘clay’ or ‘minerals.’ Its sorbent technologies include absorbent and adsorbent products. The company also produces Oil-Dri branded floor absorbents, Agsorb and Verge agricultural chemical carriers and ConditionAde and Calibrin enterosorbents used in animal feed. Adsorbent products attract impurities in liquids, such as metals and surfactants, and form low-level chemical bonds. Its 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, its Ultra-Clear product serves as a purification aid for petroleum-based oils and by-products. Segments The company’s segments are derived from the different characteristics of 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 and marketers of consumer products. Agricultural and Horticultural Products The company produces a range of granular and powdered mineral absorbent products that are used as carriers for crop protection chemicals, drying agents, bulk processing aids, growing media components and seed enhancement media. Its 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, a growing 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 preventing caking. Animal Health and Nutrition Products The company produces several products used in the livestock feed industry under the Amlan trademark. Calibrin and ConditionAde enterosorbent products are used in animal feed to absorb naturally-occurring mycotoxins found in feed. These products work to improve animal health and productivity. The company’s MD-09 moisture manager product is a feed additive for the reduction of wet droppings in poultry. Pel-Unite and Pel-Unite Plus products are specialized animal feed binders used in the manufacture of pelleted feeds. These products are sold through a network of feed products distributors in the United States and primarily through exclusive distribution agreements with animal health and nutrition products distributors in Latin America, Africa, the Middle East and Asia. Bleaching Clay and Purification Aid Products The company produces an array of bleaching, purification and filtration applications used by edible oil, jet fuel and other petroleum-based product processors worldwide. Bleaching clays are used by edible oil processors to adsorb soluble contaminants that create oxidation problems. The company’s Pure-Flo and Perform bleaching clays remove impuriti
