Rentech, Inc. Expands Wood Chipping Capacity and Processing Services in Chile; Announces New Long-Term Processing Agreement with Astillas Exportaciones Limitada

Rentech, Inc. announced a new long-term processing agreement between its subsidiaries, Fulghum Fibres Chile (Fulghum), Forestal Pacifico and Forestal Los Andes, and Astillas Exportaciones Limitada (Astex Ltda.), the Chilean subsidiary of Japan's Mitsubishi Corporation. The new processing agreement would expand the volume of eucalyptus wood to be processed and sold under contract to Astex Ltda. The five-year contract includes the mutual option to extend for two additional five-year terms. The contract provides for guaranteed minimum volumes using a base fee, excess fee and shortage fee arrangement, similar to the tolling contract structure of Fulghum's North American contracts. Rentech's subsidiary, Forestal Pacifico, will process the bark produced from the mill and sell it as biomass fuel to local industrial customers. Rentech's trading subsidiary, Forestal Los Andes, will utilize uncommitted capacity at the mill to produce chips for sale in South America or abroad. The project's unlevered return is expected to be in the high teens based on the guaranteed minimum volumes under the new agreement with Astex Ltda. Utilization of any uncommitted capacity of the expanded mill would result in higher returns. Rentech, Inc. also announced that Fulghum will rebuild its current mill in Concepción, Chile, near the port of Puchoco to increase production capacity. With the expansion, the annual processing capacity of the mill will increase from 180,000 bone dry metric tonnes (BDMT) to 400,000 BDMT of logs with bark. In addition, the facility's capacity to process logs without bark will increase from 40,000 to 100,000 BDMT per year.
