Latest News and Events from HMI May 6, 2021 SUBJECT: Polyurethane Shortages – Prices On March 11, 2021 we last wrote to address the continuing concern of polyurethane shortages across the market (reference copy at https://hmicompany.com/learning-resources/news-events/ ) We continue to have confidence that HMI customers need not be concerned with the current market shortages as our inventory and supply chain management has us and you in a good position. However, the overall market upheaval has seriously affected the cost of our most recent purchase of selected raw materials. This fact will require that HMI raise our price $.10 per pound, effective May 12th. We are projecting these prices to hold for the next 1-2 months. HMI is working hard to absorb most of the cost increases of recent purchases. Even with this cost increase, most of our concrete lifting foams will remain under $2,000.00 a barrel set with NO shortage in supply for HMI customers. It is also important to note that, all HMI Elite pricing and shipping discounts will remain in place. As we monitor the competitive landscape we continue to hear reports within the industry that many are struggling with poly shortages and drastic price increases. Our goal is to always provide our customers with a competitive advantage with materials and equipment. Now may be an opportune time to promote your availability and positioning. Thank you for business and for continuing to be a loyal partner with HMI. Jeff Cvetezar & Brian Cvetezar March 11, 2021 SUBJECT: Polyurethane Shortages – NOT A CONCERN FOR HMI CUSTOMERS As many of you may have read or heard there are continuous reports of polyurethane product shortages and an anticipated forecast for continued shortages over the next several months. Following numerous inquiries from our customers, we have decided to address this issue. HMI has completed an extensive review of our inventory of raw material, and availability of our components from suppliers. Simultaneously we also completed updated projections allowing for strong growth by HMI customers for polyurethane concrete lifting products over 2020 demand. We are confident in projecting that no HMI customer will experience a business interruption due to lack of supply of polyurethane concrete lifting products in the foreseeable future. Our historic bulk purchasing practices and the unique formulation of HMI products for concrete lifting has created this unique and advantageous circumstance while the bulk of the market will be stressed to meet demand. Unfortunately we are simultaneously experiencing increases in the cost of our raw materials due to the market demand and short supply. This situation may force us to increase prices in the months ahead (we are predicting a $.05 – $.10 increase by middle/end of April). We assure you that we are doing everything to hold our prices right now. All HMI Elite pricing and shipping discounts will stay in place, with no changes. This is the time for you, our valued HMI customer, to leverage your competitive advantages against your competition who will be experiencing shortages and major price increases. Thank you for business and for being a loyal partner with HMI.

The USDA Certified Biobased Product Label verifies that the product or product family’s amount of renewable biobased ingredients meets or exceeds levels set by USDA. Biobased products are finished or intermediate materials composed in whole or in significant part of agricultural, forestry, or marine ingredients. “We are honored to have been awarded the USDA Biobased Certification and Product Label,” said Jeff Cvetezar, HMI President. “The certified biobased content along with the high percentage of recycled content in our polyurethane products show that HMI is not only dedicated to producing the highest quality product on the market, but also is committed to environmental responsibility.” All biobased amount claims are verified by independent labs and monitored by the USDA. Consumers may feel secure in the accuracy of the biobased amount and be empowered in making better informed purchasing decisions. “We are proud that Hydraulic Mudpumps, Inc. (HMI) has earned the USDA Certified Biobased Product Label,” said Ron Buckhalt, USDA BioPreferred Program Manager. “Biobased products add value to renewable agriculture commodities, create jobs in rural communities and help our nation decrease its reliance on foreign-sourced and non-renewable petroleum.” The label is estimated to be on certified products and available for consumers by early May this year. The following is an example of the label: About USDA BioPreferred The USDA BioPreferred program was created by the Farm Security and Rural Investment Act of 2002 (2002 Farm Bill), and expanded by the Food, Conservation, and Energy Act of 2008 (2008 Farm Bill).
