During the three months ended September 30, 2013, Rentech Nitrogen generated an operating loss of $18.3 million, compared to $29.2 million of operating income during the comparable period in the prior year. The primary cause of the operating loss in the current period was a loss of $30.0 million due to the impairment of goodwill related to the Pasadena Facility. The operating loss was also increased by lower gross profits at the East Dubuque Facility, negative gross margin at the Pasadena Facility that reflected a write-down of product inventories, and the addition of selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses and depreciation and amortization expenses for the Pasadena Facility.Adjusted EBITDA for the three months ended September 30, 2013 was $16.1 million, compared to $32.9 million in the corresponding period in 2012.
