LSB Industries Inc. Reports Downtime at Cherokee Plant for Unplanned Maintenance

LSB Industries Inc. announced that its chemical plant facility in Cherokee, Alabama was taken out of service in late November 2014 for unplanned maintenance related to the replacement of a bearing in the facility’s ammonia plant, and a subsequent gasket leak and damage to insulation material which occurred upon start-up of the plant. The company anticipates that the plant will be out of production for approximately 30 days as a result of necessary repairs, returning to service by the end of the year. This downtime has and will continue to result in lost fixed cost absorption while the plant is not operating, as well as lost production, which is expected to total approximately 16,000 tons of ammonia, representing saleable product of approximately 20,000 tons of UAN, 9,000 tons of AN Solution and 1,700 tons of ammonia. During the downtime, the Cherokee Facility has been supplying, and anticipates it will be able to supply, most of its customers’ demands for UAN, AN Solution and ammonia from its inventory and, as a result, expects it will end 2014 with lower than previously anticipated inventory levels. The company plans to notify the market when the Cherokee Facility is returned to service.
