CVR Partners, a manufacturer of ammonia and urea ammonium nitrate (UAN) solution fertilizer products, has announced a net loss of US$25 million, or 22 cents per common unit, on net sales of US$86 million for 4Q19, compared to a net loss of US$1 million, or 1 cent per common unit, on net sales of US$98 million for 4Q18. Adjusted EBITDA was US$14 million for 4Q19, compared to US$33 million for 4Q18.

CVR Partners had a net loss of US$35 million, or 31 cents per common unit, on net sales of US$404 million for full-year 2019, compared to a net loss of US$50 million, or 44 cents per common unit, on net sales of US$351 million for full-year 2018. Adjusted EBITDA for full-year 2019 was US$117 million, compared to US$90 million for 2018.

“For the full-year 2019, CVR Partners achieved year-over-year increases in net income and EBITDA,” said Mark Pytosh, CEO of CVR Partners’ general partner. “The business also achieved higher fertilizer sales volumes and stronger product pricing during the year, and as a result, distributed a total of 40 cents per unit during 2019 despite continued weather impacts that created less than desirable market conditions during the year.

“Looking forward, we anticipate strong demand for spring nitrogen fertilizer application and currently expect 92 million to 95 million acres of corn to be planted this year,” Pytosh said.
