Nine months ended September 30, 2013Revenues 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.
