ChlorovinylsIn the Chlorovinyls segment, third quarter 2012 net sales were $329.1 million compared to $347.2 million during the third quarter of 2011. The decline in net sales was driven by lower vinyl resin sales prices, partially offset by higher vinyl resin sales volumes and higher caustic prices. The segment posted operating income of $73.8 million in the third quarter of 2012, compared to operating income of $46.3 million for the same quarter in the prior year. The $27.5 million increase in operating income was primarily due to lower feedstock costs, higher vinyl resin sales volumes and higher caustic sales prices, partially offset by lower vinyl resin sales prices.
