    These are the exact results that were pre-announced in the end of January. There is nothing new here. The positive EBITDA giudance for 2014 was also pre-announced in January. The important part will be to hear what comments they make about the current quarter during the conference call.

    I like them. It is good to hear them say that demand was already high in January and they expected markets to be under supplied for 2014. January was very cold as well, if demand is high then it is a very good sign for demand for the rest of the year. Also, if you believe the above it is good to hear that their contracted percentage is going down so they do not have to sell sand for below market prices anymore.

     

    Generally, the conference call brought good news from silica, and their price responded accordingly.
