Kevin J. Zugibe, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Hudson Technologies commented, “Our second quarter results built upon our strong first quarter performance as we continued to benefit from our efforts to focus on our long term strategies for growing our refrigerant and reclamation businesses. The 2012 year has been favorably impacted to date by the significant increase in the sales price of R-22 refrigerant following the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) issuance in January 2012 of ‘No Action Assurance’ letters to producers and importers of R-22 that, until the EPA’s issuance of a final rule, limits the amount of R-22 that can be manufactured and/or imported in 2012 by approximately 45% from the amount allowed in 2011. While we cannot predict when a final rule will be issued, we currently anticipate that a final rule may not be issued until the end of this year or later.

“Until the EPA issues a final rule, there will be uncertainty in the market as to future supplies of virgin R-22. The issuance of a final rule from EPA would provide a level of certainty, at least as to the available supply of virgin R22 through 2014, that we believe the industry needs to plan for and assess the future virgin supply available to serve the refrigerant aftermarket. From our perspective, there has been strong refrigerant demand during this year’s cooling season. We expect that such strong demand, coupled with a clearly defined final rule on future reductions in available virgin supply, will further support the supply/demand imbalance which, along with existing price increases in R-22, should positively impact the market opportunities for our R-22 reclamation business.

“This was a very strong quarter for our Company and we remain confident that we are well positioned to take advantage of the ongoing opportunities related to the R-22 phase down and the ultimate phase out of virgin production and the benefits that we anticipate can be derived from a vibrant reclamation market.”
