Seasonality Because the company primarily sells agricultural commodity products, its business is exposed to seasonal fluctuations in demand for nitrogen fertilizer products in the agricultural industry. As a result, the company typically generates greater net sales in the first half of the calendar year (year ended December 31, 2015), which it refers to as the planting season, and its net sales tend to be lower during the second half of each calendar year, which it refers to as the fill season. Environmental Matters The Federal Clean Air Act The federal Clean Air Act and its implementing regulations, as well as the corresponding state laws and regulations that regulate emissions of pollutants into the air, affect the company through the federal Clean Air Act's permitting requirements and emission control requirements relating to specific air pollutants, as well as the requirement to maintain a risk management program to help prevent accidental releases of certain substances. The regulation of air emissions under the federal Clean Air Act requires that the company obtains various construction and operating permits and incur capital expenditures for the installation of certain air pollution control devices at its operations. Various regulations specific to the company’s operations have been implemented, such as National Emission Standard for Hazardous Air Pollutants, New Source Performance Standards, and New Source Review. Release Reporting The company’s facility periodically has excess emission events from flaring and other planned and unplanned startup, shutdown and malfunction events. Such releases are reported to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (the EPA) and relevant state and local agencies.
