Rentech Announces Results For Third Quarter 2013

Rentech, Inc. (NASDAQ: RTK) today announced its results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2013. Rentech owns and operates wood fibre processing and nitrogen fertilizer businesses. Rentech also owns technologies designed to produce certified synthetic fuels and renewable power, when integrated with third-party technologies, that it is seeking to license or sell.

Rentech’s financial results reflect the consolidated results of Rentech, Inc. and its subsidiaries, including its wood fibre processing business and Rentech Nitrogen Partners, L.P. (Rentech Nitrogen). The results of the wood fibre processing business are reported as two operating segments: Fulghum Fibres (wood chipping) and wood pellets. The results of Rentech Nitrogen are reported as the nitrogen products manufacturing subsidiary of Rentech, which includes two operating segments: the East Dubuque Facility and the Pasadena Facility. Results of the energy technologies business are reported in a separate segment.

D. Hunt Ramsbottom, President and CEO of Rentech, said, “We are extremely pleased with the performance in our wood fibre processing business, as Fulghum Fibres generated solid gross margin of 19% and progress continues to be made on our two wood pellet production facilities. Fulghum remains on track to generate annualized revenues and EBITDA of $95 million and $20 million, respectively. Construction of the Atikokan and Wawa pellet facilities in Eastern Ontario commenced in August, and we remain on schedule to meet our pellet delivery obligations to OPG and Drax next year.”

Mr. Ramsbottom continued, “The nitrogen fertilizer business reported cash distributions that were in line with our expectations reflected in our guidance of August 8. Although prices for our products, and all nitrogen products, have declined significantly from earlier in the year, we expect the nitrogen market to improve during the fourth quarter as we believe buyers are deferring additional purchases until this year’s late harvest is completed. This could lead to improved pricing and volumes as we move into fall and spring application periods.” Mr. Ramsbottom added, “The turnaround at the East Dubuque Facility was completed safely and on time. We’re now in the commissioning phase of our ammonia production and storage capacity expansion project at the facility. We expect to commence the ammonium sulfate expansion and reliability enhancement projects at our Pasadena Facility next month. The additional volume from these expansion projects should position us well in 2014.”
