Kevin J. Zugibe, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Hudson Technologies commented, “Our third quarter results demonstrate that we continue to grow our business and expand our customer base. We achieved record revenues in the third quarter, significantly surpassing our revenues for the third quarter in 2010. Furthermore, our nine months revenues surpass our record 2010 full year revenues. Despite an industry-wide decline in the price of R-22 refrigerant (“R-22”) which impacted our margins, we achieved strong revenue growth due to increases in the total volumes of product sold and in services performed in the third quarter. While our pricing expectations for R-22 did not materialize, the expansion of our business and customer base should serve us well when market conditions stabilize.
