Weather conditions may materially impact the demand for RCN products.
Weather conditions can have a significant impact on the farming economy and, consequently, on our prospective operating results. Weather conditions affect demand for the fertilizer products sold by RCN, and thus can affect the volumes it can sell and the prices that it receives. For example, adverse weather such as flood, drought or frost can cause a delay in, or even the cancellation of, planting, reducing the demand for fertilizer. Adverse weather conditions can also impact the financial position of the farmers who will buy from Royster-Clark Resources LLC (which will be our exclusive distributor) including to those which Royster-Clark Resources LLC extends credit. This, in turn, may adversely affect the ability of those farmers to meet their obligations in a timely manner, or at all. Accordingly, the weather can have a material effect on our prospective business, financial condition, results of operations and liquidity.
