Rentech Nitrogen Partners, L.P. Announces Selected Results And Cash Distribution For Second Quarter 2014

Stocks in this article: RNF

Rentech Nitrogen Partners, L.P. (NYSE: RNF) today announced selected financial results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014. The partnership is completing its review of impairments of goodwill of its Pasadena facility. The partnership expects an impairment of goodwill, a non-cash item, related to the Pasadena facility in the second quarter of 2014 of up to the remaining balance of approximately $27 million. The partnership currently expects to file its form 10-Q on schedule on Monday, with complete financial results for the periods. In the interest of timely disclosure, the partnership elected to disclose the partial results contained in this press release.

D. Hunt Ramsbottom, CEO of Rentech Nitrogen, said, “Market conditions have improved for our East Dubuque facility, leading us to issue 2014 guidance today of approximately $100 million of Adjusted EBITDA for that facility. The same strength in ammonia prices that is helping results at East Dubuque is hurting our margins at Pasadena. Significantly lower product margins for Pasadena in recent weeks have led us to reduce our outlook for the year, to an Adjusted EBITDA loss of approximately $10 million. We expect to implement a restructured operating plan designed to generate positive Adjusted EBITDA from Pasadena’s fertilizer operations, even in a pricing environment as unfavorable as today’s. Additionally, we have engaged an advisory firm to help us evaluate terminalling proposals we have received, and consider other opportunities to maximize the value of our site along the Houston Ship Channel.”

Mr. Ramsbottom continued, “The East Dubuque facility had a seasonally strong quarter, driven by robust demand and the increased output at that plant. We have locked in the majority of our sales and natural gas purchases for the year for East Dubuque.”

Summary of Selected Results

The partnership currently expects to record in the second quarter an impairment of goodwill related to the Pasadena facility of up to the remaining balance of approximately $27 million. The partnership is completing its review of the goodwill and its impairment related to the Pasadena plant. The partial results reported below do not reflect the impact of any goodwill impairment in the second quarter.
