REGINA, Feb. 3, 2014 /CNW/ - Input Capital Corp. ("Input") (TSX Venture
Exchange: INP) is releasing its monthly update for January 2014
summarizing canola deliveries and the acquisition of new multi-year
Input continues to make canola deliveries despite the significant
backlog in the grain handling and transportation system. The record
Canadian harvest of 2013 and increasing demand for railcars from the
oil industry has temporarily overloaded the rail lines in western
"We are in the midst of an unusual dynamic," said President and CEO Doug
Emsley. "Export terminals are at low inventory levels due to strong
end-used demand for our products while country elevators are at the
limit of their working capacity. The railway system is struggling to
keep up and this has resulted in Input seeing delays to its production
being called in for delivery. We are currently delivering against our
December contracts and could see the timing of our deliveries extend
beyond March 31 and into our next fiscal year."
Gord Nystuen, Vice-President of Market Development added, "The plugged
rail lines have also led to a significant decrease in net prices being
realized by farmers across the Prairies. Our marketing plan has
insulated us from this low price environment, having locked in net
prices early in the season."
