sorry looked this up and i had them confused with ALDW or NTI this whole sector along with oldie CLMT has the potential for big div especially the new three, they are small however and subject to periodic shut down and variable div from quarter to quarter.
Consolidated gross margins will be lower. The illinois facility has high gross margins, but the new pasadena facilty is a lower margin business. This will drag down the overall consilidated margin for the company. I think as they company goes forward with both plants opperating its more important to watch EBITDA growth. and of course the growth in interest expense based on the new debt levels they have incured with the purchase of the new facilty and the upcoming expansion projects.
