Management Discussion
  • •Sales increased $31.4 million to $147.0 million. The increase in sales was primarily due to a rebound in Ecoservices volumes and the impact of the pass-through of higher sulfur costs.
  • •Gross profit increased $3.6 million to $38.5 million. The increase in gross profit was primarily due an increase in sales volumes partially offset by higher production and maintenance costs.
  • •Operating income increased by $1.7 million to $11.6 million. The increase in operating income was due to an increase in gross profit, which was partly offset by higher selling, general and administrative expenses.
