On December 18, 2013, the Company and its joint venture, Zeolyst International, entered into a ten year real estate tax abatement agreement with the Unified Government of Wyandotte County, Kansas. The agreement utilizes an Industrial Revenue Bond (“IRB”) financing structure to achieve a 75% real estate tax abatement on the value of the improvements that were constructed during the expansion of the Company and Zeolyst International’s facilities at the jointly-operated Kansas City, Kansas plant. A similar tax abatement agreement has been executed on an annual basis since December 18, 2013 with respect to additional plant expansions during those years.
During the year ended December 31, 2019, the original IRB financing structure from December 2013 was exhausted. In order to fund future plant expansions, the Company entered into an additional IRB financing structure on December 19, 2019 with similar terms and conditions, which also provides for 75% real estate tax abatement on the value of future improvements. The financing obligations and the industrial bonds receivable have been presented net, as the financing obligations and the industrial bonds meet the criteria for right of set off conditions under GAAP.
