Note 1—Business and Operations

Leslie’s, Inc. (“Leslie’s,” “we,” “our,” “us,” “its,” or the “Company”) is the leading direct-to-consumer pool and spa care brand. We market and sell pool and spa supplies and related products and services, which primarily consist of maintenance items such as chemicals, equipment and parts, cleaning accessories, as well as safety, recreational, and fitness-related products. We currently market our products through 952 company-operated locations in 38 states and e-commerce websites.

Initial Public Offering

In November 2020, we completed an initial public offering (“IPO”) of 30.0 million shares of common stock at a public offering price of $17.00 per share for net proceeds of $458.6 million, after deducting underwriting discounts and commissions of $45.0 million and offering costs of $6.3 million. We used the net proceeds from the IPO to repay the entire outstanding amount related to our $390.0 million senior unsecured notes. The remaining proceeds were used for working capital and general corporate purposes.
