Energy and chemical revenues decreased by approximately 6% in the fourth quarter of 2012 to €17.2 million from €18.3 million in the same quarter last year, as a result of lower pulp production.Pulp production decreased to 349,517 ADMTs in the current quarter from 364,876 ADMTs in the same quarter of 2011, primarily due to greater than planned maintenance downtime at our Celgar mill, partially offset by record production at our Rosenthal mill. In the current quarter, equipment and process disruptions at the Celgar mill resulted in approximately 14,000 ADMTs of lost production.We took ten days (approximately 18,100 ADMTs) of scheduled maintenance downtime at our Stendal mill in the fourth quarter of 2012, compared to 15 days (approximately 27,900 ADMTs) in the same quarter of 2011. We currently have no scheduled maintenance downtime for the first quarter of 2013.
