Co-CEO Remarks

“Tronox delivered fourth quarter top-line performance largely in-line with expectations,” commented John D. Romano, co-Chief Executive Officer. “We generated $686 million in revenue in the fourth quarter of 2023, an increase of 6% compared to the prior year. This included a 38% increase in other products due to additional sales of pig iron, as well as opportunistic sales of ilmenite and a portion of a rare earths tailings deposit in South Africa, which is a key part of our funding strategy for our rare earths business. Tronox delivered an Adjusted EBITDA of $94 million in the quarter, $11 million below the bottom end of the previously guided range of $105-$125 million, and an Adjusted EBITDA margin of 13.7%. The lower than expected performance was primarily a result of a delayed restart by our steam supplier at Botlek and higher costs from unanticipated downtime stemming from running at lower rates. We expect to recover at least $15 million in insurance proceeds in 2024 from the downtime at Botlek to cover the costs incurred to continue providing uninterrupted service to our customers while working around the supplier outage. To mitigate operational cost pressures, we continued to proactively manage expenses and cash. Free cash flow was $51 million for the fourth quarter, an improvement of $88 million over the third quarter of 2023.”

Mr. Romano added, “The operating challenges we experienced in the last six months are not indicative of the standard we hold ourselves to at Tronox. We are addressing these challenges head-on in 2024. In 2023, we ran at the lowest utilization rates on record in order to manage inventories and free cash flow in light of lower market demand. As we look ahead into 2024, we are adjusting our operating rates to support the market recovery currently underway. This will set Tronox up to realize a step change in our earnings power after working through the remaining higher cost inventory on the balance sheet. For the first quarter of 2024, we are expecting TiO2 volumes to increase 12-16% and zircon volumes to increase 15-30%, both compared to the fourth quarter, and we expect TiO2 pricing to remain relatively flat to the prior quarter. While we expect a headwind from non-repeating sales in other products and higher cost inventory moving off the balance sheet, this will be offset by lower operating costs due to higher utilization rates. As a result, we are expecting first quarter adjusted EBITDA to be $100-120 million and adjusted EBITDA margins to be in the mid-teens range.”

Mr. Romano concluded, “We are continuing to focus on opportunities for growth, namely the rare earths space. We are confident that our vertical integration strategy will continue to provide a distinct competitive advantage. We remain optimistic about the short-, medium- and long-term potential for Tronox through value creation from our leading sustainable mining and upgrading solutions.”


Fourth Quarter 2023 Results

(Comparisons are to prior year (Q4 2023 vs. Q4 2022) unless otherwise noted)

The Company reported fourth quarter revenue of $686 million, an increase of 6%, primarily driven by higher sales volumes of TiO2 and other products.

Revenue from TiO2 sales was $519 million, an increase of 9% driven by a 16% increase in volumes and 1% exchange rate tailwind, partially offset by a 6% price decrease in average selling prices and a 2% unfavorable mix impact. Sequentially, TiO2 sales decreased 7%, driven by a 4% decrease in volumes, a 1% unfavorable mix impact, a 1% decline in average selling prices and a 1% exchange rate headwind.

Zircon revenue decreased 37% to $57 million, driven by a 26% decline in volumes and an 11% decrease in average selling prices. Sequentially, zircon revenue increased 73%, driven by an 82% increase in volumes, partially offset by a 9% decrease in average selling prices.

Revenue from other products was $110 million, an increase of 38% year-over-year, due to additional sales of pig iron, as well as opportunistic sales of ilmenite and a portion of a rare earths tailings deposit in South Africa.

Net loss attributable to Tronox in the quarter was $56 million, or a loss of $0.36 per diluted share, compared to a net loss attributable to Tronox of $15 million, or loss of $0.09 per diluted share in the year-ago period. Adjusted net loss attributable to Tronox (non-GAAP) was $60 million, or a loss of $0.38 per diluted share.

Adjusted EBITDA of $94 million represented a 17% decrease compared to the fourth quarter 2022, driven by lower average selling prices and higher operating costs from lower production rates, partially offset by higher volumes, lower average freight costs and exchange rate tailwinds. Adjusted EBITDA margin was 13.7% for the quarter.

Sequentially, Adjusted EBITDA decreased 19% due to higher operating costs from lower production rates and lower product pricing, partially offset by higher volumes, favorable exchange rate tailwinds and lower average freight costs.

The Company’s selling, general and administrative expenses were $70 million in the quarter. Net interest expense was $37 million. Depreciation, depletion and amortization expense was $69 million.


Full Year 2023 Results

The Company reported full-year revenue of $2,850 million, a decrease of 17% year-over-year. Net loss attributable to Tronox was $316 million, or a loss of $2.02 per diluted share. Excluding non-recurring adjustments totaling $292 million or $1.87 per diluted share, adjusted net loss attributable to Tronox (non-GAAP) was $24 million or a loss of $0.15 per diluted share. Adjusted EBITDA of $524 million decreased 40% compared to $875 million in the prior year. Adjusted EBITDA margin was 18.4% for the year.


Balance Sheet, Cash Flow and Capital Allocation

Tronox ended the year with $2.8 billion of total debt, $2.6 billion of net debt and a net leverage ratio of 4.9x on a trailing twelve-month basis. As of December 31, 2023, available liquidity totaled $761 million, including $273 million in cash and cash equivalents and $488 million under existing revolving credit agreements.

Free cash flow for the year was a use of $77 million. Capital expenditures were $261 million. The Company returned $89 million to shareholders in the form of dividends in the year.


Sustainability

Tronox is nearing the conversion of 40% of its power in South Africa to power from the significant solar project developed in partnership with SOLA Group. Enabled through a power purchase agreement with SOLA, this project is one of South Africa’s largest solar installations. The Company expects to receive power in the coming months, which will significantly reduce total carbon emissions globally and mark the first significant step for Tronox on its journey to net zero in 2050. Renewable power and energy efficiency projects are key to achieving the stated 2030 greenhouse gas emissions intensity reduction target of 50%, so the Company is excited to mark such a significant milestone. On the horizon are several additional renewable power projects that are critical to delivering against this roadmap.
