ITEM 2. Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results
of Operation
Forward-Looking Statements
The following discussion contains forward-looking statements about future events and expectations within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. We have based these forward-looking statements on our current expectations and projections about future results. When we use words in this document such as "anticipates," "intends," "plans," "believes," "estimates," "projects," "expects," "should," "could," "may," "will," and similar expressions, we do so to identify forward-looking statements. Examples of forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, statements we make regarding future prospects of growth in the petroleum additives market, other trends in the petroleum additives market, our ability to maintain or increase our market share, and our future capital expenditure levels.
We believe our forward-looking statements are based on reasonable expectations and assumptions, within the bounds of what we know about our business and operations. However, we offer no assurance that actual results will not differ materially from our expectations due to uncertainties and factors that are difficult to predict and beyond our control.
Factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from expectations include, but are not limited to, availability of raw materials and transportation systems; supply disruptions at single-sourced facilities; ability to respond effectively to technological changes in our industry; failure to protect our intellectual property rights; hazards common to chemical businesses; occurrence or threat of extraordinary events, including natural disasters and terrorist attacks; competition from other manufacturers; sudden or sharp raw materials price increases; gain or loss of significant customers; risks related to operating outside of the United States; the impact of fluctuations in foreign exchange rates; political, economic, and regulatory factors concerning our products; future governmental regulation; resolution of environmental liabilities or legal proceedings; inability to complete future acquisitions or successfully integrate future acquisitions into our business; and other factors detailed from time to time in the reports that NewMarket files with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including the risk factors in Item 1A. "Risk Factors" of our 2011 Annual Report, which is available to shareholders upon request.
You should keep in mind that any forward-looking statement made by us in this discussion or elsewhere speaks only as of the date on which we make it. New risks and uncertainties arise from time to time, and it is impossible for us to predict these events or how they may affect us. We have no duty to, and do not intend to update or revise the forward-looking statements in this discussion after the date hereof, except as may be required by law. In light of these risks and uncertainties, any forward-looking statement made in this discussion or elsewhere might not occur.

Continuing from the first half of 2012, nine months 2012 reflect very strong results. Both revenue and operating profit increased from the first nine months of 2011. Our cash flows from operations remained strong during the nine months 2012, allowing us to pay off a net $99.3 million in debt. Our working capital position also improved from last year.
During 2012, we made some significant changes to our debt structure. In March 2012, we entered into a new $650 million five-year, unsecured revolving credit facility, which replaced our previous $300 million unsecured revolving credit facility. The new credit facility provides us with a significantly lower cost of borrowing and increased operating flexibility to execute our long-term business plan. In April 2012, we used funds available under the new $650 million revolving credit facility to redeem all of our outstanding 7.125% senior notes in the aggregate principal amount of $150 million. In May 2012, we paid off the outstanding balance of the Foundry Park I mortgage loan agreement.
