Statement of Accounting Policy
Statement of Accounting Policy
Statement of Accounting Policies
Basis of Presentation
The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Myers Industries, Inc. and all wholly owned subsidiaries (collectively, the “Company”), and have been prepared without audit, pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”). 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 pursuant to those rules and regulations, although the Company believes that the disclosures are adequate to make the information not misleading. It is suggested that these financial statements be read in conjunction with the financial statements and notes thereto included in the Company’s latest annual report on Form 10-K.
In the opinion of the Company, the accompanying financial statements contain all adjustments (consisting of only normal recurring accruals) necessary to present fairly the financial position as of June 30, 2013, and the results of operations and cash flows for the periods presented. The results of operations for the three and six months ended June 30, 2013 are not necessarily indicative of the results of operations that will occur for the year ending December 31, 2013.
Recent Accounting Pronouncements
In February 2013, the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") issued Accounting Standards Update ("ASU") No. 2013-02, Reporting of Amounts Reclassified Out of Accumulated Other Comprehensive Income requiring new disclosures regarding reclassification adjustments from accumulated other comprehensive income ("AOCI"). ASU No. 2013-02 requires disclosure of amounts reclassified out of AOCI in its entirety, by component, which the Company has elected to disclose in the notes (see below). We adopted this guidance effective January 1, 2013.
Translation of Foreign Currencies

All asset and liability accounts of consolidated foreign subsidiaries are translated at the current exchange rate as of the end of the accounting period and income statement items are translated monthly at an average currency exchange rate for the period. The resulting translation adjustment is recorded in other comprehensive income (loss) as a separate component of shareholders' equity.
Fair Value Measurement
The Company follows guidance included in ASC 820, Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures, for its financial assets and liabilities, as required. The guidance established a common definition for fair value to be applied to U.S. GAAP requiring the use of fair value, established a framework for measuring fair value, and expanded disclosure requirements about such fair value measurements. The guidance did not require any new fair value measurements, but rather applied to all other accounting pronouncements that require or permit fair value measurements. Under ASC 820, the hierarchy that prioritizes the inputs to valuation techniques used to measure fair value is divided into three levels:
Level 1:
Unadjusted quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.
Level 2:
Unadjusted quoted prices in active markets for similar assets or liabilities, unadjusted quoted prices for identical or similar assets or liabilities in markets that are not active or inputs that are observable either directly or indirectly.
Level 3:
Unobservable inputs for which there is little or no market data or which reflect the entity’s own assumptions.
The fair value of the Company’s cash, accounts receivable, accounts payable and accrued expenses are considered to have a fair value which approximates carrying value due to the nature and relative short maturity of these assets and liabilities.
The fair value of debt under the Company’s Credit Agreement approximates carrying value due to the floating rates and relative short maturity (less than 90 days) of the revolving borrowings under this agreement. The fair value of the Company’s $35.0 million fixed rate senior notes was estimated at $35.9 million and $36.5 million at June 30, 2013 and December 31, 2012, respectively, using market observable inputs for the Company’s comparable peers with public debt, including quoted prices in active markets and interest rate measurements which are considered level 2 inputs.
Revenue Recognition

The Company recognizes revenues from the sale of products, net of actual and estimated returns, at the point of passage of title and risk of loss, which is generally at time of shipment, and collectability of the fixed or determinable sales price is reasonably assured.

Accumulated Other Comprehensive Income

The balances in the Company’s accumulated other comprehensive income ("AOCI") as of June 30, 2013 and June 30, 2012 are as follows:

Cash and Cash Equivalents

The Company considers all highly liquid instruments purchased with a maturity of three months or less to be cash equivalents. Cash equivalents are stated at cost, which approximates market value. The Company maintains operating cash and reserves for replacement balances in financial institutions which, from time to time, may exceed federally insured limits. The Company periodically assesses the financial condition of these institutions and believes that the risk of loss is minimal.
Inventories
Inventories
Inventories
Approximately twenty percent of the Company’s inventories use the last-in, first-out (LIFO) method of determining cost. An actual valuation of inventory under the LIFO method can be made only at the end of each year based on the inventory levels and costs at that time. Accordingly, interim LIFO calculations must necessarily be based on management’s estimates of expected year-end inventory levels and costs. Because these are subject to many factors beyond management’s control, estimated interim results, which were immaterial, are subject to change in the final year-end LIFO inventory valuation and therefore, no adjustment was recorded as of June 30, 2013.
Acquisitions
Acquisitions
Acquisitions
In October 2012, the Company acquired 100% of the stock of Jamco Products Inc. ("Jamco"), an Illinois corporation that is a leading designer and manufacturer of heavy-duty industrial steel carts and safety cabinets used across many markets. The total purchase price was approximately $15.1 million in cash, net of $0.1 million of cash acquired.
Jamco's assets and liabilities are recorded at fair value as of the date of acquisition using primarily level 2 and level 3 fair value inputs. Intangible assets included in the acquisition of Jamco are trade name of $1.2 million, technology of $2.0 million, non-compete agreement of $0.1 million and customer relationships of $2.4 million. The technology, non-compete agreement and customer relationships are subject to amortization and have estimated useful lives of ten, two and six years, respectively. The Jamco trade name has an indefinite life and will be subject to periodic (at least annual) evaluation for impairment.
In July 2012, the Company acquired 100% of the stock of Plasticos Novel do Nordeste S.A. ("Novel"), a Brazil-based designer and manufacturer of reusable plastic crates and containers used for closed-loop shipping and storage. Novel also produces a diverse range of plastic industrial safety products. The total purchase price was $30.9 million, which includes a cash payment of $3.4 million, net of $0.6 million of cash acquired, assumed debt of approximately $26.0 million and contingent consideration of $0.9 million based on an earnout. The contingent consideration is contingent upon the annual results of Novel exceeding predefined earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization over the following four years.
Novel's assets and liabilities are recorded at fair value as of the date of acquisition using primarily level 3 fair value inputs. Intangible assets included in the acquisition of Novel include trade name of $1.6 million, know-how of $1.8 million and customer relationships of $2.4 million The know-how and customer relationships are subject to amortization and have estimated useful lives of ten and six years, respectively. The Novel trade name has an indefinite life and will be subject to periodic (at least annual) evaluation for impairment.

Goodwill
The Company is required to test for impairment on at least an annual basis. In addition, the Company tests for impairment whenever events or circumstances indicate that it is more likely than not that the fair value of a reporting unit is below its carrying amount. Such events may include, but are not limited to, significant changes in economic and competitive conditions, the impact of the economic environment on the Company's customer base or its businesses, or a material negative change in its relationships with significant customers. The Company conducts its annual impairment assessment as of October 1.
The change in goodwill for the six months ended June 30, 2013 was as follows:

Options to purchase 470,000 and 227,000 shares of common stock that were outstanding at June 30, 2013 and 2012, respectively, were not included in the computation of diluted earnings per share as the exercise prices of these options were greater than the average market price of common shares, and their effect on diluted earnings per share would be anti-dilutive.

Approximately $5.7 million of property, plant, and equipment has been classified as held for sale due to restructuring actions and are included in other assets in the Condensed Consolidated Statement of Financial Position at both June 30, 2013 and December 31, 2012. In July, 2013, the Company announced as part of a Lawn and Garden Segment restructuring that it will be re-opening a plant in Sparks Nevada, which at June 30, 2013 is classified as held for sale. This facility will no longer be actively marketed for sale and subsequently be reported as property, plant, and equipment in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Financial Position. The Company is actively pursuing the sale of the remaining facilities classified as held for sale.

On July 18, 2013, the Company announced that its Board approved a restructuring plan in its Lawn and Garden Segment. The planned actions announced comprise the closure of two manufacturing plants; one in Brantford, Ontario and the second in Waco, Texas. A plant in Sparks, Nevada will be re-opened in order to lower our costs to serve the West Coast market and position the segment for future growth. The restructuring actions include closure, relocation and employee related costs. The aggregate charge is expected to approximate $15.0 million, of which $3.0 million will be noncash costs. These actions are expected to improve annual operating profit by approximately $8.0 million. A portion of the benefits from these actions will begin in the fourth quarter of 2013. The majority of the benefits are planned to be realized throughout 2014 in decreased labor, overhead, plant and freight costs.
Stock Compensation
Stock Compensation
Stock Compensation
The Company’s 2008 Incentive Stock Plan (the “2008 Plan”) authorizes the Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors to issue up to 3,000,000 shares of various types of stock based awards including stock options, restricted stock, stock units and stock appreciation rights to key employees and directors. In general, options granted and outstanding vest over a three year period and expire ten years from the date of grant.
Stock compensation expense reduced income before taxes approximately $1.1 million and $0.9 million for the three months ended June 30, 2013 and 2012, respectively. Stock compensation expense reduced income before taxes approximately $1.5 million and $1.6 million for the six months ended June 30, 2013 and 2012, respectively. These expenses are included in SG&A expenses in the accompanying Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income (Unaudited). Total unrecognized compensation cost related to non-vested share based compensation arrangements at June 30, 2013 was approximately $4.8 million which will be recognized over the next three years, as such compensation is earned.
On March 1, 2013, stock options for 323,400 shares were granted with a three year vesting period. The fair value of options granted is estimated using a binomial lattice option pricing model based on assumptions set forth in the following table. The Company uses historical data to estimate employee exercise and departure behavior. The risk free interest rate is based on the U.S. Treasury yield curve in effect at the time of grant and through the expected term. The dividend yield rate is based on the Company’s historical dividend yield. The expected volatility is derived from historical volatility of the Company’s shares and those of similar companies measured against the market as a whole.

The intrinsic value of a stock option is the amount by which the market value of the underlying stock exceeds the exercise price of the option. The total intrinsic value of all stock options exercised during the three months ended June 30, 2013 and 2012 was approximately $0.8 million and $1.3 million, respectively. The total intrinsic value of all stock options exercised during both the six months ended June 30, 2013 and 2012 was approximately $1.4 million.
On March 1, 2013, 169,100 Restricted Stock Unit ("RSU") Awards were granted with a two or three year vesting period. The RSUs had a grant date fair value of $14.77 per share, which was the closing price of the common stock on the date of grant.

Restricted stock are rights to receive shares of common stock, subject to forfeiture and other restrictions, which vest over a two or three year period. Restricted shares are considered to be non-vested shares under the accounting guidance for share-based payment and are not reflected as issued and outstanding shares until the restrictions lapse. At that time, the shares are released to the grantee and the Company records the issuance of the shares. Restricted stock awards are valued based on the market price of the underlying shares on the grant date. Compensation expense is recognized on a straight-line basis over the requisite service period. At June 30, 2013, restricted stock awards had vesting periods up through March 2016.

The Company is a defendant in various lawsuits and a party to various other legal proceedings, in the ordinary course of business, some of which are covered in whole or in part by insurance.

New Idria Mercury Mine

Effective October 2011, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (“EPA”) added the New Idria Mercury Mine site located near Hollister, California to the Superfund National Priorities List because of alleged contaminants discharged to California waterways. The New Idria Quicksilver Mining Company, founded in 1936, and later renamed the New Idria Mining & Chemical Company ("NIMCC") owned and/or operated the New Idria Mine through 1976. In 1981 NIMCC was merged into Buckhorn Metal Products Inc. and subsequently acquired by Myers Industries in 1987. The EPA contends that past mining operations have resulted in mercury contamination and acid mine drainage in the San Carlos Creek, Silver Creek and a portion of Panoche Creek and that other downstream locations may also be impacted.

Since Buckhorn Inc. may be a potentially responsible party (“PRP”) of the New Idria Mercury Mine, the Company recognized an expense of $1.9 million in 2011 related to performing a remedial investigation and feasibility study to determine the extent of remediation and the screening of alternatives. Payments of approximately $0.5 million have been charged against the reserve classified in Other Liabilities on the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Financial Position as of June 30, 2013. As the Site Remedial Investigation and Feasibility Study ("RI/FS") proceeds, it is likely that adjustments to the recognized expense will be necessary to reflect new information regarding the nature and extent of site contamination, the range of remediation alternatives available, and evolving remediation standards.  The final remedial action will be selected after completion of the RI/FS.  At that time the Company is likely to have additional information regarding remedial action costs, the number and financial condition of other PRPs, the extent of their responsibility for the remediation, and the availability of insurance coverage for these expenses. At this time, further remediation cost estimates are not known and have not been prepared.

In November 2011 the EPA completed an interim removal project at the New Idria Mercury Mine site. It is expected this removal action will be part of the final remediation strategy for the site. According to informal reports, EPA's interim removal project costs were approximately $500,000. It is possible that at some future date the EPA will seek recovery of the costs of this work from PRPs.

When management believes that a loss arising from these matters is probable and can reasonably be estimated, we record the amount of the estimated loss, or the minimum estimated liability when the loss is estimated using a range, and no point within the range is more probable of occurrence than another. As additional information becomes available, any potential liability related to these matters will be assessed and the estimates will be revised, if necessary.

Based on current available information, management believes that the ultimate outcome of these matters will not have a material adverse effect on our financial position or overall trends in our results of operations. However, these matters are subject to inherent uncertainties, and unfavorable rulings could occur. If an unfavorable ruling were to occur, there exists the possibility of a material adverse impact on the financial position and results of operations of the period in which the ruling occurs, or in future periods.

Under terms of the Credit Agreement with a group of banks, the Company may borrow up to $180 million, reduced for letters of credit issued. As of June 30, 2013, the Company had $114.1 million available under the Credit Agreement.
In December 2003, the Company issued $100 million in Senior Unsecured Notes (the "Notes") consisting of $65 million of notes with an interest rate of 6.08 percent and a 7 year maturity and $35 million of notes with an interest rate of 6.81 percent and a 10 year maturity. Proceeds from the issuance of the Notes were used to pay down the term loan and revolving credit facility borrowing outstanding at that time. As of June 30, 2013, the Company has classified the $35 million of Senior Notes due in December 2013 as a long-term liability since it has the intent to refinance the debt on a long-term basis and has demonstrated the ability via capacity available under the non-cancelable revolver feature of the current Credit Agreement.

Income Taxes
The total amount of gross unrecognized tax benefit that would reduce the Company's effective tax rates at June 30, 2013 and June 30, 2012, was $1.2 million and $0.5 million, respectively. The $0.7 million increase in the gross unrecognized tax benefits from June 30, 2012 to June 30, 2013 resulted from an increase in ASC 740-10-25-6, Accounting for Uncertainty in Income Taxes, reserves related to acquired businesses and previous year tax positions. Accrued interest expense included with accrued income taxes in the Company's Condensed Consolidated Statements of Financial Position was less than $0.1 million at both June 30, 2013 and December 31, 2012.

As of June 30, 2013, the Company and its significant subsidiaries are subject to examination for the years after 2006 in Brazil, after 2007 in Canada, and after 2010 in the United States. The Company and its subsidiaries are subject to examination in certain states within the United States either after 2007 or after 2008.

Statement of Accounting Policy (Policies)
Basis of Presentation
The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Myers Industries, Inc. and all wholly owned subsidiaries (collectively, the “Company”), and have been prepared without audit, pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”). 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 pursuant to those rules and regulations, although the Company believes that the disclosures are adequate to make the information not misleading. It is suggested that these financial statements be read in conjunction with the financial statements and notes thereto included in the Company’s latest annual report on Form 10-K.
Recent Accounting Pronouncements
In February 2013, the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") issued Accounting Standards Update ("ASU") No. 2013-02, Reporting of Amounts Reclassified Out of Accumulated Other Comprehensive Income requiring new disclosures regarding reclassification adjustments from accumulated other comprehensive income ("AOCI"). ASU No. 2013-02 requires disclosure of amounts reclassified out of AOCI in its entirety, by component, which the Company has elected to disclose in the notes (see below). We adopted this guidance effective January 1, 2013.
Translation of Foreign Currencies

All asset and liability accounts of consolidated foreign subsidiaries are translated at the current exchange rate as of the end of the accounting period and income statement items are translated monthly at an average currency exchange rate for the period. The resulting translation adjustment is recorded in other comprehensive income (loss) as a separate component of shareholders' equity.
Fair Value Measurement
The Company follows guidance included in ASC 820, Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures, for its financial assets and liabilities, as required. The guidance established a common definition for fair value to be applied to U.S. GAAP requiring the use of fair value, established a framework for measuring fair value, and expanded disclosure requirements about such fair value measurements. The guidance did not require any new fair value measurements, but rather applied to all other accounting pronouncements that require or permit fair value measurements. Under ASC 820, the hierarchy that prioritizes the inputs to valuation techniques used to measure fair value is divided into three levels:
Level 1:
Unadjusted quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.
Level 2:
Unadjusted quoted prices in active markets for similar assets or liabilities, unadjusted quoted prices for identical or similar assets or liabilities in markets that are not active or inputs that are observable either directly or indirectly.
Level 3:
Unobservable inputs for which there is little or no market data or which reflect the entity’s own assumptions.
The fair value of the Company’s cash, accounts receivable, accounts payable and accrued expenses are considered to have a fair value which approximates carrying value due to the nature and relative short maturity of these assets and liabilities.
The fair value of debt under the Company’s Credit Agreement approximates carrying value due to the floating rates and relative short maturity (less than 90 days) of the revolving borrowings under this agreement. The fair value of the Company’s $35.0 million fixed rate senior notes was estimated at $35.9 million and $36.5 million at June 30, 2013 and December 31, 2012, respectively, using market observable inputs for the Company’s comparable peers with public debt, including quoted prices in active markets and interest rate measurements which are considered level 2 inputs.
Revenue Recognition

The Company recognizes revenues from the sale of products, net of actual and estimated returns, at the point of passage of title and risk of loss, which is generally at time of shipment, and collectability of the fixed or determinable sales price is reasonably assured.
Cash and Cash Equivalents

The Company considers all highly liquid instruments purchased with a maturity of three months or less to be cash equivalents. Cash equivalents are stated at cost, which approximates market value. The Company maintains operating cash and reserves for replacement balances in financial institutions which, from time to time, may exceed federally insured limits. The Company periodically assesses the financial condition of these institutions and believes that the risk of loss is minimal.
