LSB Industries, Inc. (“LSB” or “the Company”), (NYSE: LXU), today announced that on Saturday, January 14, 2023 it began the phased restart of its Cherokee, AL (“Cherokee”) facility after being shut down in late December 2022 as a result of the extremely cold temperatures that impacted much of the United States.
LSB management now expects fourth quarter 2022 Adjusted EBITDA to be in the range of approximately $100 million to $105 million, which includes the previously announced $5 million to $7 million impact to operating profit of the Cherokee outage coupled with the effects of declines in selling prices of ammonia and other nitrogen products that occurred during December.
