Swisher Hygiene, Inc., is engaged in providing hygiene and sanitizing solutions that include cleaning and sanitizing chemicals, restroom hygiene programs and related products and services throughout North America and through nine Master License Agreements internationally. The Company operates in one business segment, Hygiene. It sells consumable products such as detergents, cleaning chemicals, soap, paper, water filters and supplies, together with the rental and servicing of dish machines and other equipment for the dispensing of those products; as well as additional services such as the cleaning of facilities. The Company markets and sells its products and services primarily through: its field sales group, including the service technicians, which pursues new customers and offers existing customers additional products and services; its corporate account sales team, which focuses on broad regional level customers; and independent third-party distributor partners. The Company competes in many markets, including institutional and industrial cleaning chemicals (which include foodservice chemicals), restroom hygiene, other facility service products, and paper and plastics. Its primary competitors in its legacy hygiene and facilities service market are large facility service and uniform providers, as well as numerous small local and regional providers, many of whom may focus on one particular product offering such as uniform rentals. The Company is subject to laws and regulations relating to the protection of the environment and natural resources, and workplace health and safety. These include, among other things, reporting on chemical inventories and risk management plans, and the management of hazardous substances.
