Terra Nitrogen Company, L.P. Declares Cash Distribution


DEERFIELD, Ill., July 28, 2010 (BUSINESS WIRE) —Terra Nitrogen Company, L.P. (TNCLP) (NYSE: TNH) today declared a cash distribution for the quarter ended June 30, 2010, of $2.36 per common limited partnership unit payable August 25, 2010, to holders of record as of August 10, 2010.


Cash distributions depend on TNCLP’s earnings, which can be affected by nitrogen selling prices, natural gas costs, seasonal demand factors, production levels and weather, as well as cash requirements for working capital needs and capital expenditures. Cash distributions per limited partnership unit also vary based on increasing amounts allocable to the General Partner when cumulative distributions exceed targeted levels. With this distribution, TNCLP cumulative distributions exceed targeted levels.


TNCLP will report full second quarter 2010 results on August 5, 2010.




Terra Nitrogen Company, L.P. is a leading manufacturer of nitrogen fertilizer products.
