Keyuan Petrochemicals Inc. an independent manufacturer and supplier of various petrochemical products in China announced the Company's financial results for the quarter ended September 30th, 2013.

Sales for the three months ended September 30, 2013 were approximately $150.3 million, compared to $164.3 million for the three months ended September 30, 2012, a decrease of $14 million, or 8.5%. The decrease was mainly due to lower sales quantities as a result of the 40-day production interruption in the quarter ended June 30, 2013.

Normally it takes a short period of time for the facilities and equipment to reach to their optimum conditions after routine maintenance. The Company sold 129,066 tons of petrochemical and rubber products at an average price of $1,094 and $1,888 per metric ton, respectively, in the three months ended September 30, 2013, compared to 155,249 metric tons of petrochemical products and rubber products at an average price of $982 and $2,423 per metric ton, respectively, in the three months ended September 30, 2012.

The average sales price for petrochemical products for the three months ended September 30, 2013 increased by approximately 11% compared to the same period of 2012. Petrochemical segment revenues for three months ended September 30, 2013 account for 86% of the total revenue.

Although the average selling price during the three months ended September 30, 2013 was higher than that at the same period of 2012, the overall quantity of sold products decreased by 15%, which caused total sales for the three months ended September 30, 2013 to decline.

Sales for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 were approximately $453.8 million, compared to $532.1 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2012, a decrease of $78 million, or 14.7%.

Overall cost of sales was approximately $140.0 million for the three months ended September 30, 2013, or 93% of sales, as compared to the cost of approximately $160.5 million, or 98% of sales for the three months ended September 30, 2012.

The decrease in the cost of sales was mainly due to the lower sales quantities due to the routine inspection and maintenance of the facilities in the quarter ended June 30, 2013 and the higher average selling price of $1,151 per metric ton for the three months ended September 30, 2013, as compared to $1,059 per ton for the three months ended September 30, 2012.

Overall cost of sales was approximately $432.4 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2013, or 95% of sales, as compared to approximately $512.3 million, or 96% of sales for the nine months ended September, 30, 2012.
