The bottom line
CVR Partners (UAN) is expected to report sales growth of 16% year-over-year as we discussed in the earlier part of this series. Some of this growth is expected to trickle down to other line items. However, the company’s bottom line is estimated to remain in the negative territory.
Loss per share
CVR Partners is expected to report a loss per share of $0.06 in the second quarter compared to a loss per share of $0.03 in the corresponding quarter a year ago.
