19. Commitments and Contingencies


From time to time, the Company is party to pending or threatened lawsuits arising out of or incident to the ordinary course of business. The Company carries professional and general liability insurance coverage and other insurance coverages. In the opinion of management and upon consultation with legal counsel, none of the pending or threatened lawsuits will have a material effect upon the consolidated financial position, operations, or cash flows of the Company.


The Company carries a broad range of insurance coverage, including general and business auto liability, commercial property, workers’ compensation, cyber risk, and general umbrella policies. As of December 31, 2021 and 2020, the Company accrued $3,169 and $2,467, respectively, for assessments on insurance claims filed, which are included in other accrued expenses in the accompanying consolidated balance sheets. As of December 31, 2021 and 2020, the Company recorded $2,594 and $2,052, respectively, in other receivables from its non-healthcare insurance carriers related to these insurance claims, which are included in other receivables in the accompanying consolidated balance sheets. The receivables are paid when the claim is finalized and the reserved amounts on these claims are expected to be paid within one year.

Environmental Matters

Operations at certain facilities currently or previously owned or leased by the Company utilize, or in the past have utilized, hazardous substances generally in compliance with applicable law. Periodically, the Company has had minor claims asserted against it by regulatory agencies or private parties for environmental matters relating to the handling of hazardous substances by the Company, and it has incurred obligations for investigations or remedial actions with respect to certain of these matters. There can be no assurances that activities at these facilities, or future facilities owned or operated by the Company, may not result in additional environmental claims being asserted against the Company or additional investigations or remedial actions being required. The Company is not aware of any significant remediation matters as of December 31, 2021. Because of various factors including the difficulty of identifying the responsible parties for any particular site, the complexity of determining the relative liability among them, the uncertainty as to the most desirable remediation techniques and the amount of damages and clean-up costs and the time period during which such costs may be incurred, the Company is unable to reasonably estimate the ultimate cost of claims asserted against the Company related to environmental matters; however, the Company does not believe such costs will be material to its consolidated financial statements.

In addition to potential claims asserted against the Company, there are certain regulatory obligations associated with these facilities. The Company also has a third-party specialist to review the sites subject to these regulations annually, for the purpose of assigning future cost. A third party has conducted a preliminary assessment of site restoration provisions arising from these regulations and the Company has recognized a provisional amount. As of December 31, 2021 and 2020, the Company recorded an environmental remediation accrual of $12 and $68, respectively, which is included in other accrued expenses in the accompanying consolidated balance sheets.


The Company has provided certain standard pre-closing warranties in connection with the sale of its quick lube facilities, which closed on December 11, 2020. The pre-closing warranties made by the Company in the related Asset Purchase Agreement survive for six months following the closing date. The Company is not aware of any warranty liabilities with respect to the former quick lube facilities that require accrual at December 31, 2021.
