NOTE 11—COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES

Litigation and Claims

The Company is from time to time party to various lawsuits, including personal injury claims and other proceedings that arise in the ordinary course of its business. With respect to all such lawsuits, claims and proceedings, the Company records a reserve when it is probable that a liability has been incurred and the amount of loss can be reasonably estimated. The Company does not believe that the resolution of any currently pending lawsuits, claims and proceedings, either individually or in the aggregate, will have a material adverse effect on its financial position, results of operations or liquidity. However, the outcomes of any currently pending lawsuits, claims and proceedings cannot be predicted, and therefore, there can be no assurance that this will be the case.

The Company completed a bankruptcy filing of its Koontz-Wagner subsidiary in July 11, 2018. This could require the Company to incur legal fees and other expenses related to liabilities from this bankruptcy filing. While the Company does not anticipate these liabilities will have a material adverse effect on its results of operations, cash flows and financial position, and although the statute of limitations has run on certain claims that the Chapter 7 Trustee for the Koontz-Wagner estate might assert, there can be no assurance of the outcome. The filing was for Koontz-Wagner only, not for the Company as a whole, and was completely separate and distinct from the Williams business and operations.
