Commitments and Contingencies


The Company has been named as a defendant in lawsuits alleging personal injury from exposure to asbestos allegedly contained in, or accompanying, products made by the Company. The Company is a co-defendant with numerous other defendants in these lawsuits and intends to vigorously defend itself against these claims. The claims in the Company’s current lawsuits are similar to those made in previous asbestos-related suits that named the Company as a defendant, which either were dismissed when it was shown that the

Company had not supplied products to the plaintiffs’ places of work or were settled for immaterial amounts. The Company cannot provide any assurances that any pending or future matters will be resolved in the same manner as previous lawsuits.

As of September 30, 2023, the Company was subject to the claims noted above, as well as other potential claims that have arisen in the ordinary course of business.

Although the outcome of the lawsuits, legal proceedings or potential claims to which the Company is, or may become, a party to cannot be determined and an estimate of the reasonably possible loss or range of loss cannot be made for the majority of the claims, management does not believe that the outcomes, either individually or in the aggregate, will have a material adverse effect on the Company’s results of operations, financial position or cash flows.


The Company previously entered into related party operating leases with Ascent Properties Group, LLC ("Ascent"), for two building lease agreements and two equipment lease agreements in Arvada, Colorado. In connection with such leases, the Company made fixed minimum lease payments to the lessor of $242 and $211 during the three months ended September 30, 2023 and 2022, respectively, and $466 and $422 during the six months ended September 30, 2023 and 2022, respectively. The Company is obligated to make payments of $486 during the remainder of fiscal 2024. Future fixed minimum lease payments under these leases as of September 30, 2023 are $6,271.
