14:23 EDTRNF, RTKDolphin III seeks rapid spin off of Rentech wood fibre business
Dolphin Limited Partnership III, L.P. and certain affiliates, a long-term sizable holder of Rentech (RTK), announced that it is informing RTK's shareholders of certain strategic initiatives Dolphin has advocated to RTK as a result of its interaction with the company during the past 18-months in order to enhance the value of Rentech Nitrogen Partners (RNF) and generate a significant increase in RTK's current share price: (i) the rapid spin-off vs. an IPO, which is subject to a customary discount, underwriting fees and market risk, in a Master Limited Partnership of its wood fibre processing businesses; and (ii) the establishment of a strategic alternatives process to maximize value for RTK's 59.8% interest in RNF. Dolphin III believes that a successful strategic alternatives process that drives RNF to approximately $30 per unit would generate a near 50% increase in RTK's current share price. A spokesperson for Dolphin III added, "With an expeditious spin-off of the wood fibre processing businesses, the strategic alternatives process should explore: (i) methods to efficiently recombine the remainder of RTK (23.25 million RNF units, its General Partner and sizable federal and state NOL's) with RNF to create a more sizable and liquid MLP; (ii) repurchasing RNF units to capitalize on the severely depressed price (currently a significant discount to the replacement value of its facilities); and (iii) a sale to a strategic acquirer. From October 2012--May 2013, Dolphin III and its outside advisors presented a plan that, in its view, would have efficiently recombined RTK and RNF in a new MLP. Since then, with RNF down more than 50% and greatly underperforming its peers, lower projected cash distributions, and larger RTK NOL's, the review should also include a re-examination of the Dolphin III Plan. More recently, Dolphin III's outside advisors also identified potential opportunities for RTK and RNF to create value with and without a recombination.

07:02 EDTRTKRentech secures additional loan commitment of up to $63M from GSO Capital
Rentech, Inc. (RTK) announced that GSO Capital Partners LP, the credit investment arm of Blackstone (BX), has increased its credit facility for Rentech by up to $63M. The majority of the proceeds from this new facility are expected to fund completion of Rentech’s Canadian wood pellet projects through positive cash flow. Rentech now estimates the cost to complete the construction of its Canadian wood pellet projects to be $125M-$130M. Rentech expects that the new term loan, together with its other cash resources, will be sufficient to fund its Atikokan and Wawa pellet projects until they have been commissioned and begin to generate positive cash flow. Rentech currently estimates that the cost to acquire and construct the two plants will be $125M-$130M, up from $105M. The majority of the increase is due to delays in construction and higher labor costs for installation of electrical and mechanical components. Rentech expects that working capital and the cost to commission the plants will add approximately $6 to $10 million to the estimated total project cost. Rentech does not expect the plants to generate positive EBITDA or cash flow for the year 2015. Annual stabilized EBITDA projected for both plants remains in line with previous guidance of C$17M-C$20M.
