Net cash flow used in investing activities in the first nine months of 2013 was $144.2 million compared to $72.7 million used in the first nine months of 2012. The increase in cash used in 2013 was primarily the result of the third quarter 2013 purchase of Brinderson (for a purchase price of $143.8 million, net of $3.8 million in cash acquired). Also in 2013, we received $18.3 million during the second quarter in connection with the sale of our fifty percent interest in the German joint venture. 2012 capital expenditures of $33.7 million, net of partner payments, reflected a significant investment for our coating facilities in Louisiana and Canada. Capital expenditures in 2013 are expected to be approximately $30 million. Also in 2012, we recorded purchases of Fyfe Asia (for a net purchase price of $39.4 million) and Fyfe Latin America (for a net purchase price of $3.0 million).
Net cash flows from financing activities provided $112.7 million during the first nine months of 2013 compared to $12.4 million provided in the first nine months of 2012. During 2013, we entered into a new credit facility and borrowed $147.6 million (gross purchase price) to fund the purchase of Brinderson and used $5.0 million for facility financing fees. During 2012, we borrowed $26.0 million to fund the purchase of Fyfe Asia and for working capital and joint venture investments. In the first nine months of 2013, we used $19.0 million to repurchase 833,552 shares of our common stock through open market purchases and in connection with our equity compensation programs, as compared to $6.4 million to repurchase shares in the first nine months of 2012.
Net cash flow for the first nine months of 2013 was a $7.0 million use of cash.
