The Company reported operating income of $92 million for the first quarter of 2011, compared to operating income of $103 million in the fourth quarter of 2010, and an operating loss of $31 million in the first quarter of 2010.  Adjusted EBITDA for the first quarter of 2011 was $179 million, down from $205 million in the fourth quarter of 2010, and up from $46 million in the first quarter of 2010.  The sequential decline in earnings was the result of the moderate improvement in pricing and lower scheduled maintenance downtime costs being more than offset by cost inflation primarily related to fuels, higher seasonal energy usage, and the impact of benefit cost timing in the quarter.

 

Net sales for the first quarter of 2011 were $1.58 billion, down slightly from $1.63 billion in the fourth quarter of 2010 and up 8 percent compared with sales of $1.46 billion in the first quarter of 2010.  The sequential decline in sales in first quarter 2011 reflects modestly higher selling prices, more than offset by seasonally lower volumes.
