Our net sales for the first nine months of 2012 were $573.6 million, a decrease of $24.3 million, or 4%, from the first nine months of 2011 net sales of $597.9 million. The decrease was due primarily to lower ammonia and UAN sales volume, partially offset by higher ammonia average selling prices.

Net cash provided by operating activities was $424.6 million for the first nine months of 2012 compared to $376.2 million in 2011. The $48.4 million increase in cash provided by operating activities in 2012 was primarily due to a $32.6 million increase in net earnings and a decrease in the amount of cash invested in working capital during the period. Net earnings included noncash depreciation and amortization expense of $13.9 million and $17.4 million during the nine months ended September 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively, and a non-cash unrealized (gain) loss on derivatives of $(9.6) million and $4.4 million during the nine months ended September 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively.
