The company has demonstrated a pattern of positive earnings per share growth over the past two years. We feel that this trend should continue. This trend suggests that the performance of the business is improving. During the past fiscal year, RENTECH INC turned its bottom line around by earning $0.00 versus -$0.06 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an increase in earnings to $0.05 from $0.00.
