Analysis of Results
Sales for the 2013 fourth quarter totaled $168.3 million, compared to sales of $206.5 million for the 2012 fourth quarter. This decrease was due to lower ammonia and urea ammonium nitrate solution (UAN) average selling prices and lower ammonia sales volume, which was partially offset by higher UAN sales volume. Ammonia average selling price decreased compared to the prior year due to high industry-wide inventory and UAN average selling price decreased due to weaker global nitrogen market conditions compared to the prior year period. Ammonia sales volume decreased due to a shorter fall ammonia application season compared to 2012, while UAN sales volume increased due to customers rebuilding their inventory levels.
Comparing the fourth quarter 2013 to 2012, TNCLPs:
· Ammonia average selling prices decreased by 34 percent and UAN average selling prices decreased by 15 percent;
· Ammonia sales volume decreased by 4 percent and UAN sales volumes increased by 7 percent; and
· Realized natural gas cost per MMBtu decreased by 1 percent.
Sales for the full year totaled $736.2 million, compared to sales of $780.1 million in 2012. This decrease was due to lower sales volume which was partially offset by higher ammonia selling prices. The sales volume decline was due primarily to planned plant turnaround activities completed during the third quarter. UAN average selling price was unchanged from last year,
