On November 4, 2013, USEC Inc. (USEC) reported its Q3 2013 financial results,
with revenue down 46.0% YoY to $303.8 million. According to the Company, the
decline was attributed to the 47% decline in volume of SWU sales, which makes
up a significant portion of the total revenue. SWU revenue stood at $295.8
million for the quarter versus $559.5 million in Q3 2012. Net loss was $44.3
million, or $9.04 per basic and diluted share, compared with net income of
$4.5 million, or $0.92 per basic and diluted share, in Q3 2012. John K. Welch,
President and CEO of USEC said, "Although we reported a net loss and a
negative gross profit margin, this was largely due to the significant amount
of non-production expenses related to the transition of the Paducah GDP.
Without those substantial expenses, we would have reported a gross profit for
the quarter and year to date." The Full Research Report on USEC Inc. -
