SUGAR LAND, Texas, Jan. 24, 2013

SUGAR LAND, Texas, Jan. 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --CVR Partners, LP (NYSE: UAN),
a master limited partnership and manufacturer of ammonia and urea ammonium
nitrate (UAN) solution fertilizer products, today declared  a cash
distribution of 19.2 cents per common unit for the fourth quarter of 2012.


The distribution as set by the board of CVR GP, LLC, the general partner of
CVR Partners, will be paid Feb. 14, 2013, to unitholders of record on  Feb. 7,

As expected and previously included in the company's 2012 guidance, the
scheduled plant turnaround in October significantly impacted fourth quarter
cash available for distribution. The company's next turnaround is scheduled
for the 2014 fourth quarter.

CVR Partners' fourth quarter cash distribution brings the cumulative cash
distributions paid or declared for the 2012 full year to $1.81 per common
unit, which exceeds the company's distribution guidance of $1.70 to $1.80 per
common unit.

Primarily due to the expansion of its UAN plant and no turnaround in 2013, the
company continues to expect a significant double-digit increase in cash
available for distribution for the full year of 2013 as compared to the 2012
full year.

Formal 2013 financial guidance will be provided with the release of the
company's 2012 fourth quarter and full year results on Feb. 27, 2013, after
the close of New York Stock Exchange trading.Chief Executive Officer Byron
