US Silica Holdings Inc was incorporated as a Delaware corporation on November 14, 2008. On January 31, 2012, the Company completed an initial public offering of common stock (the "IPO"). It is domestic producer of commercial silica, a specialized mineral that is a critical input into a variety of attractive end markets. It has developed core competencies in mining, processing, logistics and materials science that enable us to produce and cost-effectively deliver over 250 products to customers across these markets. In its largest end market, oil and gas proppants, its frac-sand is used to stimulate and maintain the flow of hydrocarbons in horizontally drilled oil and natural gas wells. Its commercial silica is also used as an economically irreplaceable raw material in a wide range of industrial applications, including glassmaking and chemical manufacturing. In recent years a number of attractive new end markets have developed for its high-margin, performance silica products, including solar panels, specialty coatings, wind turbines, polymer additives and geothermal energy systems. Its operations are organized into two segments based on end markets served: Oil & Gas Proppants, and Industrial & Specialty Products. In the Oil & Gas Proppants segment, it serves the oil and gas recovery market providing fracturing sand, or "frac sand," which is pumped down oil and natural gas wells to prop open rock fissures and increase the flow rate of natural gas and oil from the wells. The Industrial & Specialty Products segment consists of over 250 products and materials used in a variety of industries including, container glass, fiberglass, specialty glass, flat glass, building products, fillers and extenders, foundry products, chemicals, recreation products and filtration products. The Company's trademarks, includes "U.S. Silica" and products such as "OTTAWA WHITE". Its operations may be subject to broad environmental review under the National Environmental Policy Act ("NEPA").
