| Seth Goldstein, CFA |

CF Industries is the largest nitrogen producer in North America, with production based in the United States and Canada. CF's plants, which benefit from low-cost North American natural gas, are connected to its main customers in the U.S. Corn Belt by an extensive distribution network of pipelines, rail, and barge, giving the company a transportation cost advantage over foreign competition without pipeline access.
