Rentech Reports Results For Third Quarter 2012

Financial Highlights

Results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012 and 2011 exclude those of Agrifos LLC since Rentech Nitrogen acquired Agrifos subsequent to September 30, 2012.

Three months ended September 30, 2012

Consolidated revenues for the three months ended September 30, 2012 were $60.2 million, compared to $38.6 million for the comparable period last year. Revenues were derived almost entirely from sales of nitrogen fertilizer products through Rentech Nitrogen.

Consolidated operating income for the three months ended September 30, 2012 was $16.6 million, compared to an operating loss of $53.7 million for the three months ended September 30, 2011. During the third quarter of 2011, Rentech reported a $58.7 million loss due to impairments for the Company’s abandoned alternative energy projects. Rentech also extinguished a liability of $7.9 million related to its previously abandoned coal-to-liquids conversion project at its fertilizer plant.

During the three months ended September 30, 2012, Rentech’s nitrogen products manufacturing segment generated operating income of $29.2 million, compared to $10.4 million during the comparable period in the prior year. EBITDA for Rentech’s nitrogen products manufacturing segment was $32.9 million for the period, compared to $12.9 million in the corresponding period in 2011.
