Note 1. Organization and Description of Business




Concrete Pumping Holdings, Inc. (the "Company") is a Delaware corporation headquartered in Thornton, Colorado. The condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its wholly owned subsidiaries including Brundage-Bone Concrete Pumping, Inc. ("Brundage-Bone"), Camfaud Group Limited ("Camfaud") and Eco-Pan, Inc. ("Eco-Pan").


Nature of business


Brundage-Bone is a concrete pumping service provider in the United States ("U.S.") and Camfaud is a concrete pumping service provider in the United Kingdom ("U.K."). Their core business is the provision of concrete pumping services to general contractors and concrete finishing companies in the commercial, infrastructure and residential sectors. Most often equipment returns to a "home base" nightly and these service providers do not contract to purchase, mix, or deliver concrete. Brundage-Bone has approximately 100 branch locations across approximately 21 states, with its corporate headquarters in Thornton, Colorado. Camfaud has approximately 30 branch locations throughout the U.K., with its corporate headquarters in Epping (near London), England.


Eco-Pan provides industrial cleanup and containment services, primarily to customers in the construction industry. Eco-Pan uses containment pans specifically designed to hold waste products from concrete and other industrial cleanup operations. Eco-Pan has 20 operating locations across the U.S. with its corporate headquarters in Thornton, Colorado. In addition, we have concrete waste management operations under our Eco-Pan brand name in the U.K. and currently operate from a shared Camfaud location.




The Company’s sales are historically seasonal, with lower revenue in the first quarter and higher revenue in the fourth quarter of each year. Such seasonality also causes the Company’s working capital cash flow requirements to vary from quarter to quarter and primarily depends on the variability of weather patterns with the Company generally having lower sales volume during the winter and spring months.
