Rentech Nitrogen Partners, L.P. Announces Results For Third Quarter 2013

Nine months ended September 30, 2013

Revenues for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 were $256.8 million, compared to $169.2 million for the comparable period in the prior year. Revenues increased due to the contribution of $110.0 million of revenues from the Pasadena Facility, partially offset by a 13% decline in revenues from the East Dubuque Facility. Results in the current period were significantly impacted by unfavorable weather. In the spring of this year, product deliveries from both facilities were reduced and delayed by wet weather which caused a delayed and abbreviated planting season and lower product demand and prices. Significant increases in exports of urea from China also contributed to the downward pressure on nitrogen pricing. Furthermore, in anticipation of lower production due to the October turnaround of the East Dubuque Facility, a portion of ammonia inventory was held to meet the expected increase in demand for the fall 2013 application season. These effects were partially offset by higher deliveries of UAN in the third quarter of 2013, shifting expected revenue from the fourth quarter to the current period.

During the nine months ended September 30, 2013, Rentech Nitrogen generated operating income of $32.7 million compared to $90.3 million during the comparable period in the prior year. Operating income in the current period was reduced by lower gross profits at the East Dubuque Facility, negative gross margins that reflected write-downs of product inventories and loss on goodwill impairment at the Pasadena Facility, and the addition of SG&A expenses and depreciation and amortization expenses for the Pasadena Facility.

Adjusted EBITDA for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 was $75.1 million, compared to $99.7 million in the corresponding period in 2012. Adjusted EBITDA excluding Partnership level expenses, totaled $81.6 million for the current period. The East Dubuque Facility and the Pasadena Facility reported $84.2 million and ($2.6) million in Adjusted EBITDA, respectively, during the nine months ended September 30, 2013. Further explanation of Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, has been included below in this press release.
