The East Dubuque plant has the flexibility to significantly vary its product mix. This enables us to upgrade our ammonia production into varying amounts of acid and liquid and granulated urea each season, depending on emand, pricing and storage availability.

We have a regional advantage with our strategically located facilities. Our nitrogen fertilizer facilities, located in Coffeyville, Kansas, and East Dubuque. Illinois, provide geographical advantages in that we are located in the U.S. Farm Belt and Mid Corn Belt regions. As a result of our close proximity to these agricultural markets, we are able to cost-effectively sell substantially all of our products at a high margin, whereas a significant portion of our competitors' revenues ore derived from the lower-margin industrial market. In addition, our on-site storage facilities allow for better timing of product pickup and application by customers across both regions.

Our Coffeyville fertilizer plant's close location to the Union Pacific main line increases our transportation cost-advantage by lowering the costs of bringing our products to customers. Our products leave the plant either in trucks for direct shipment to customers, incurring no transportation cost, or in railcars for destinations located principally on the Union Pacific Railroad. We do not ny intermediate transfer, storage, barge freight or pipeline freight

Our East Dubuque fertilizer plant primarily sells its product within 200 miles of the facility as Illinois and Iowa are the two largest corn producing an nitrogen fertilizing consuming states. The plant also benefits from its li_ . on the Mississippi River and its direct access to a barge dock as well as the nearby rail spur serviced by the Canadian National Railway Company. In most cases, customers purchase nitrogen products from the facility and then arrange and pay to transport the products to their final destination by truck. As a result, the plant generally does not incur shipping costs.

Our company benefits from positive trends in the nitrogen fertilizer market. We believe that as a pure-play nitrogen fertilizer company we are well positioned to benefit from positive trends in the nitrogen fertilizer market in general and the UAN market in particular, including strengthening demand, tightening supply, rising crop prices and increased corn acreage.

We derive substantially all of our revenue from the production and sale of nitrogen fertilizers, primarily in the agricultural market, whereas most of our competitors are diversified into other crop nutrients, such as phosphate and potassium significant sales into the lower-margin industrial market. Nitrogen fem production is a higher margin, growing business with more stable demand compared to the production of phosphate and potassium because nitrogen is depleted in the soil more quickly and therefore must be reapplied annually.
