Tronox Incorporated Reports Fourth Quarter and Fiscal 2011 Results

Feb 20, 2012 - Press Releases

OKLAHOMA CITY, Feb. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Tronox Incorporated (TROX.PK), one of the world’s leading producers and marketers of titanium dioxide pigment, today announced results for the fiscal fourth quarter and year ending December 31, 2011.  

Fourth quarter 2011 net sales were $382.6 million, a 17.4 percent increase from $325.8 million reported in the prior year’s fourth quarter.  Income from operations in the quarter was $99.7 million compared with $52.5 million in the prior year quarter.  Net income for the quarter was $66.2 million versus a loss of $39.5 million in the previous year’s period.

On a non-GAAP basis, fourth quarter adjusted income from operations was $110.9 million compared with $44.8 million in the prior year.  Adjusted net income was $77.4 million compared with $30.9 million in the same period in 2010.  Adjusted EBITDA for the quarter, excluding restructuring and other non-recurring expenses, was $138.7 million compared with $55.1 million in the prior year.

Fourth quarter 2011 net sales of $382.6 million decreased by 17.8 percent sequentially from $465.4 million in the third quarter of 2011; this decrease is in line with expected seasonal revenue patterns.  Fourth quarter income from operations of $99.7 million increased sequentially over income from operations of $99.2 million in the third quarter of 2011.  Fourth quarter adjusted EBITDA was $138.7 million compared to third quarter record adjusted EBITDA of $141.0 million.

Tronox‘s fourth quarter results were very strong in light of the unusual headwinds that our industry faced,” said Tom Casey, Tronox‘s chairman and chief executive officer.  “The fourth quarter of every year is typically a lower sales volume period, which was compounded last year by reductions in sales volumes resulting from customer inventory management, the government-led slowdown of the rate of economic activity in China and the tragic flood in Thailand.  Fourth quarter sales volume declined in all regions but the price increases achieved in the quarter allowed
us to produce adjusted EBITDA of $138.7 million, which was within 2% of our all-time record adjusted EBITDA reported in the third quarter of 2011.”  

Casey continued, “We continue to believe that TiO2 demand will grow at rates roughly correlated to GDP growth over the long term, and that incremental supply at both the pigment and ore levels of our supply chain will remain limited.  We expect revenue and adjusted EBITDA to be higher in 2012 than 2011.”

Fiscal 2011 Results

For 2011, Tronox reported net sales of $1,651.0 million, income from operations of $321.4 million, and net income of $873.0 million, including the gains due to fresh-start accounting effected in January, 2011.  Higher sales were driven by increases in both sales price and sales volumes of TiO2 and mineral products.

Pigment Segment Results

Fourth Quarter 2011

Pigment sales for the fourth quarter of 2011 were $349.2 million compared with $285.5 million during the same period in 2010 and $429.2 million in the third quarter of 2011.  Income from operations totaled $112.1 million during the quarter, which represented a $66.8 million increase over the same period last year and a $12.8 million decrease from the third quarter of 2011.  The year-over-year increases were primarily due to the effects of higher selling prices and partially offset by decreased volumes, partially offset by higher production costs and selling, general and administrative expenses.  Additionally, the
Company added to its lower than customary inventories and accelerated certain maintenance activities in the fourth quarter.

Fiscal 2011

Pigment sales for fiscal 2011 were $1,513.5 million, a 41.7 percent increase over the same period in 2010, primarily driven by increased TiO2 prices and volume growth.  Income from operations for the pigment segment increased $206.8 million to $376.5 million in 2011, compared with $169.7 million in 2010.  The increase in income from operations was due to the effects of both higher TiO2 sales prices and volumes, and was partially offset by higher production costs and selling, general and administrative expenses.

Electrolytic and Other Chemical Products Results

Fourth Quarter 2011

Electrolytic and other chemical products sales for the 2011 fourth quarter decreased $6.4 million to $27.8 million, compared with $34.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2010 and $36.0 million in the third quarter of 2011.  The electrolytic and other chemical products segment reported a loss from operations of $1.5 million for the fourth quarter of 2011, compared with income of $1.4 million during the same period last year and a loss of $0.9 million in the third quarter of 2011.  The decreased profitability was primarily the result of unplanned outages at our sodium chlorate
facility in Hamilton, Mississippi that reduced sales volumes and raised costs.  This production facility was restored to commercial production in the fourth quarter.

Fiscal 2011

Net sales for fiscal 2011 were $128.7 million compared with $128.3 million in 2010.  Income from operations for fiscal 2011 decreased $5.4 million to $0.4 million from $5.8 million in 2010.  Decreased profitability was driven by decreased sales volumes, higher production and delivery costs and selling, general and administrative expenses, partially offset by the effects of higher average pricing.  

Corporate and Other

Fourth Quarter

Corporate and other reported an operating loss of $10.9 million for the fourth quarter of 2011, compared with income of $5.8 million during the comparable prior year period and a loss of $24.8 million in the third quarter of 2011. A primary reason for the change is reimbursements of environmental expenditure of $7.7 million in 2010 versus nil in 2011.  In addition, the loss was affected by costs associated with the Exxaro Mineral Sands acquisition, including legal and professional fees, which totaled approximately $3.8 million, and the post-emergence accounting for intangible assets, stock compensation, pension and postretirement healthcare benefit costs not
allocated to the business lines.

Fiscal 2011

For fiscal 2011, corporate and other reported a loss of $55.5 million compared to income of $34.1 million during 2010.  A primary reason for the change is reimbursements of environmental expenditures of $47.3 million in 2010 that declined to only $4.5 million in 2011 as the Company exited bankruptcy and transferred responsibility for environmental remediation to the trusts established as part of the plan of reorganization. In addition, the loss was affected by costs associated with the bankruptcy and the acquisition of Exxaro‘s mineral sands operations, including banker fees, legal and professional fees and the registration rights penalty of
approximately $28.2 million.  Audit and professional fees related to a three year audit of the Company’s financial statements increased costs by approximately $17.3 million.  Included in corporate and other is $3.0 million of amortization of intangible assets recorded as part of the fresh-start accounting at emergence from bankruptcy.  Litigation/arbitration settlement benefit totaled $9.8 million in 2011 versus nil in 2010.

Business Outlook

We expect modest growth in the first quarter driven largely by both increased sales volume and average prices compared to the fourth quarter of 2011.  In the absence of a major economic disruption in Europe, China or elsewhere, we anticipate that demand growth rates will increase at a greater rate in the second quarter and the second half of 2012.  

“We have established relationships with a diversified portfolio of customers.  We continue to work with many of our major customers on both commercial and technical innovations that will be mutually beneficial,” said Casey.  “We believe that these relationships allowed us to do relatively well in the fourth quarter and will continue to support our progress going forward.  We achieved average price increases in each quarter of 2011 and we expect to achieve average price increases both in the first quarter of 2012 and for the full year.  In addition, we expect sales volumes to increase in the first quarter over the 2011 fourth quarter, to increase again in the second quarter of 2012, we expect both sales volumes and average prices to be higher in the second half of 2012 than in the first half.”

Casey concluded, “Our combination with Exxaro Mineral Sands will make us the only fully vertically integrated global TIO2 producer in the world, assuring us of feedstock supply and offsetting the substantial feedstock price increases by allowing us to participate in the strong margins at both levels of the supply chain.  In fact, we will have approximately 200,000 metric tonnes of feedstock over our consumption requirements.  Because we anticipate the titanium feedstock market will remain strong in 2012, we will benefit by being a net seller in this market.”

Fresh-Start Accounting

On February 14, 2011, (the “Effective Date”), Tronox Incorporated emerged from bankruptcy and continued operations as reorganized Tronox Incorporated.  As a result, the Company applied fresh-start accounting under ASC 852 as of January 31, 2011, whereby the U.S. GAAP financial statements after January 31, 2011 are not comparable to the financial statements prior to that date.  Fresh-start accounting required resetting the historical net book values of Tronox‘s assets and liabilities to their estimated fair values as of January 31, 2011. References to
“Successor” refer to Tronox and its consolidated subsidiaries after January 31, 2011, after giving effect to the cancellation of old common stock issued prior to January 31, 2011, the issuance of new common stock and settlement of existing debt and other adjustments in accordance with the reorganization plan, and the application of fresh-start accounting. References to “Predecessor” refer to Tronox and its consolidated subsidiaries prior to January 31, 2011.

Conference Call/Webcast

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information

To provide investors and others with additional information regarding Tronox‘s operating results, we have disclosed in this press release certain non-GAAP financial measures, including, Adjusted Income from Operations, Adjusted Net Income, and Adjusted EBITDA, excluding restructuring cost. These non-GAAP financial measures are a supplement to, and not a substitute for or superior to, the Company’s results presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. The non-GAAP financial measures presented by the Company may be different than non-GAAP financial measures presented by other companies.

The non-GAAP financial measures are provided to enhance the user’s overall understanding of the Company’s operating performance. Specifically, the Company believes the non-GAAP information provides useful measures to investors regarding the Company’s financial performance by excluding certain costs and expenses that the Company believes are not indicative of its core operating results, as well as the impact of fresh-start accounting. The presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures are not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for results or guidance prepared and presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP.

Tronox has provided a reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures used in this release to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures:

  • Adjusted income from operations differs from GAAP income from operations in that it excludes the impact of non-recurring items, fresh-start accounting related adjustments, and other bankruptcy related charges or credits.
  • Adjusted net income differs from GAAP net income in that it (i) excludes the impact of non-recurring items, fresh-start accounting related adjustments, and reorganization charges or credits, and (ii) is adjusted for the associated tax impact of all these changes.
  • Adjusted EBITDA differs from GAAP net income in that it (i) excludes interest expenses, taxes, depreciation, amortization and stock based compensation charges, and (ii) excludes the impact of non-recurring items, fresh-start accounting related adjustments, and reorganization charges or credits and write-off of financing costs completed prior to emergence from bankruptcy.

Management believes these non-GAAP financial measures:

  • Reflect Tronox‘s ongoing business in a manner that allows for meaningful period-to-period comparison and analysis of trends in Tronox‘s business, as they exclude expenses that are not reflective of ongoing operating results;
  • Provide useful information to investors and others in understanding and evaluating Tronox‘s operating results and future prospects in the same manner as management and in comparing financial results across accounting periods;
  • Provide additional view of the operating performance of the Company by adding interest expenses, taxes, depreciation and amortization to the net income. Further adjustments due to fresh-start accounting, and stock based compensation charges attempt to
    exclude items that are either non-cash or non-recurring in nature; and
  • Enable investors to assess the Company’s compliance with financial covenants under its debt instruments Tronox‘s term loan has maintenance financial covenants that use EBITDA as part of the measures, e.g. Consolidated Leverage ratio, which is a ratio of Indebtedness to Consolidated EBITDA; and Consolidated Interest Coverage Ratio which is a ratio of Consolidated EBITDA to interest expenses.
  • In addition, Adjusted EBITDA, excluding restructuring expenses, is one of the primary measures management uses for planning and budgeting processes and to monitor and evaluate financial and operating results. Adjusted EBITDA is not a recognized term under GAAP and does not purport to be an alternative to measures of our financial performance as determined in
    accordance with GAAP, such as net income (loss). Because other companies may calculate EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA differently than we do, EBITDA may not be, and Adjusted EBITDA as presented in this release is not, comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies.
