The Company sold 685,000 tons of sand into the Oil and Gas markets for hydraulic fracturing, which produced $33.3 million in contribution margin for the second quarter, compared to 535,000 tons and a contribution margin of $16.7 million in the second quarter of 2011.

Second quarter Industrial and Specialty Products segment revenues were $50.1 million, a year-over-year increase of approximately 4%. The ISP segment sold 1,098,000 tons and delivered $14.0 million in contribution margin, compared to 1,106,000 million tons and a contribution margin of $14.8 million in the second quarter of 2011.

The ISP segment has more than 1,400 customers, produces over 200 products to such diverse end-markets as glass containers, flat glass, paint, chemicals and electronics.

SG&A expense was $9.7 million for the second quarter of 2012 compared to $6.0 million for the second quarter of 2011. The increase was driven by additional staffing to support our growth and the administrative requirements of a public company.
