Financial report summary

Management Discussion
  • Our consolidated net sales for the third quarter of 2019 were $75.5 million compared to $79.8 million for the same period in 2018. Our consolidated operating loss was $19.2 million compared to $16.6 million for the same period in 2018.  The items impacting our operating results are discussed in more detail below and under “Results of Operations.”
  • The on-stream rates of our plants affect our production, the absorption of fixed costs of each plant and sales of our products.  It is a key operating metric that we use to manage our business.  In particular, we closely monitor the on-stream rates of our ammonia plants as ammonia is the basic product used to produce all upgraded products.  The on-stream rates noted below exclude Turnaround days, when applicable.  
  • At our Cherokee Facility, the ammonia plant’s on-stream rate for third quarter of 2019 was 90% compared to 97% for the same period of 2018. During the third quarter of 2019, the Cherokee Facility’s on-stream rate was impacted by certain power outages experienced by our utility provider and a local flooding event requiring our ammonia plant to be temporarily shut down.  Our target on-stream rate for this ammonia plant for 2019 is 95%.
