Tronox Reports First Quarter 2019 Financial Results

Published

STAMFORD, Conn., May 9, 2019 /PRNewswire/ --

First Quarter 2019 Highlights:

  • Revenue of $390 million down 12 percent versus first quarter 2018; down 9 percent excluding $12 million of revenue in prior-year quarter from Electrolytic business sold in September 2018; primary drivers were 10 percent lower pigment sales volumes and $6 million of unfavorable Euro translation
  • Revenue down 9 percent versus fourth quarter 2018, as higher pigment sales volumes were more than offset by lower zircon, feedstock and pig iron sales volumes due to shipment timing
  • Income from operations of $16 million; Adjusted EBITDA of $80 million (Non-GAAP) reflected transitioning TiO2 pigment market conditions that improved as the quarter was completed and the financial impact of certain actions taken in operations in preparation for moving from a long to short feedstock position following the closing of the Cristal acquisition
  • For the second quarter 2019, Adjusted EBITDA (Non-GAAP) of $125 million to $135 million expected for legacy Tronox driven by improved pigment market conditions, increased zircon shipments and the margin benefits of the actions taken in operations prior to closing the Cristal acquisition (1)
  • GAAP diluted loss per share ($0.27); adjusted diluted loss per share of ($0.18) (Non-GAAP)
  • Continued to successfully work with our pigment customers on margin stability initiatives; TiO2 pigment selling prices 2 percent lower than prior-year quarter and 1 percent lower than prior quarter on local currency basis

Strategic Developments:

  • Transformational acquisition of Cristal TiO2 business completed on April 10, 2019
  • Sale of Cristal's former North American TiO2 business to INEOS Enterprises for $700 million closed on May 1, 2019 and divestiture of 8120 paper laminate grade to Venator Materials closed on April 26, 2019
  • Repurchased 14 million Tronox shares directly from Exxaro Resources at a price of $14.32 per share on May 9, 2019, using portion of proceeds from INEOS transaction

1) For the Company's guidance with respect to second quarter 2019 Adjusted EBITDA, we are not able to provide without unreasonable effort the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, or reconciliation to such GAAP financial measure, because certain items that impact such measure are uncertain or out of our control, or cannot be reasonable predicted.

Tronox Holdings plc (NYSE:TROX) ("Tronox" or the "Company"), the world's leading integrated manufacturer of titanium dioxide pigment, reported revenue of $390 million for the first quarter 2019, down 12 percent from $442 million in the prior-year quarter and down 9 percent from $429 million in the prior quarter.  Excluding revenue of $12 million in the year-ago quarter from the Electrolytic business sold in September 2018, revenue declined 9 percent versus the prior-year quarter.  Income from operations of $16 million compared to $14 million in the year-ago quarter and $68 million in the prior quarter.  Net loss attributable to Tronox of $34 million, or ($0.27) per diluted share, compared to a net loss attributable to Tronox of $44 million, or ($0.36) per diluted share, in the year-ago quarter and a net loss attributable to Tronox of $5 million, or ($0.05) per diluted share in the prior quarter.  Net loss attributable to Tronox in the first quarter 2019 included transaction costs primarily related to the Cristal acquisition, debt modification costs and a charge to indemnify Exxaro Resources for capital gains tax pursuant to the Mineral Sands Completion Agreement that, combined, totaled $11 million or $0.09 per diluted share.  Excluding these items, adjusted net loss attributable to Tronox (Non-GAAP) was $23 million, or ($0.18) per diluted share.  Adjusted EBITDA of $80 million compared to $117 million in the prior-year quarter and $120 million in the prior quarter.

The Board of Directors declared a quarterly dividend of $0.045 per share payable on May 31, 2019, to shareholders of record of the company's ordinary shares at the close of business on May 20, 2019.

Jeffry Quinn, chairman and chief executive officer of Tronox commented on the recent developments by noting, "The closing of the game-changing Cristal acquisition comes at an opportune time, as pigment markets in Europe and Asia are stabilizing, inventories are normalizing as destocking runs its course, and North American market conditions remain resilient. We continue to successfully work with our pigment customers on our unique win-win margin stability initiative and now with the closing of the Cristal transaction, we will accelerate our work on this important initiative." 

Discussing the unique positioning of Tronox as an integrated pigment producer in favorable feedstock conditions, Quinn stated, "Furthermore, we are in an advantaged position to benefit from both zircon and feedstock integration. We expect zircon to continue to deliver significant profitability and margin enhancement," Quinn continued, "and we expect to fully derive the benefits of vertical integration in future quarters that were substantially muted in the first quarter." 

Finally, because of these positive developments, Quinn stated, "For the second quarter of 2019, we expect Adjusted EBITDA (Non-GAAP) to range between $125 million to $135 million for legacy Tronox, a substantial increase from the first quarter."

First Quarter 2019

First Quarter 2019 versus First Quarter 2018

Revenue of $390 million was 12 percent lower than $442 million in the year-ago quarter primarily due to lower pigment sales volumes, the absence of revenue from the Electrolytic business sold in September 2018 and unfavorable Euro translation, partially offset by higher zircon selling prices.  Revenue was 9 percent lower excluding $12 million of revenue from the Electrolytic business in the prior-year quarter. 

Pigment sales of $286 million compared to $333 million in the year-ago quarter.  Sales volumes were 10 percent lower as customer destocking in Europe and Asia continued in the first quarter.  Selling prices were 2 percent lower on a local currency basis and 5 percent lower on a U.S. dollar basis, as translation of the Euro was a $6 million headwind on revenue. 

Titanium feedstock and co-products sales of $104 million increased 7 percent from $97 million in the year-ago quarter.  Zircon sales of $64 million increased 5 percent from $61 million in the year-ago quarter driven by 17 percent higher selling prices, partially offset by 10 percent lower sales volumes due to the timing of shipments.  Pig iron sales of $19 million were level to the year-ago quarter, as 2 percent higher selling prices were offset by 2 percent lower sales volumes.  Feedstock and other products sales of $21 million increased from $17 million in the year-ago quarter primarily driven by higher synthetic rutile and slag fines sales volumes.  There were no ilmenite sales in the first quarter compared to $5 million in the year-ago quarter, as we were not actively selling ilmenite in the market in preparation for increased internal requirements following the closing of the Cristal acquisition.

Adjusted EBITDA of $80 million was 32 percent lower than $117 million in the year-ago quarter.  Higher zircon selling prices and favorable foreign exchange on costs were more than offset by lower pigment and zircon sales volumes, unfavorable overhead absorption related to planned maintenance in South Africa, higher costs for coke, electrodes, anthracite and labor, higher one-time SG&A costs associated with re-domiciliation and other initiatives, and a $9 million royalty refund received in the year-ago quarter.

First Quarter 2019 versus Fourth Quarter 2018

Revenue of $390 million decreased 9 percent from $429 million in the prior quarter, as higher pigment sales volumes were more than offset by lower sales volumes for feedstock, zircon and pig iron due to the timing of shipments.

Pigment sales of $286 million increased 9 percent from $263 million in the prior quarter.  Sales volumes increased 10 percent driven by the normal seasonal increase coupled with positive momentum in March in European and Asian markets as destocking runs its course.  Selling prices were 1 percent lower on a local currency basis and 2 percent lower on a U.S. dollar basis.  The impact of translation of the Euro on pigment sales was negligible compared to the prior quarter. 

Titanium feedstock and co-products sales of $104 million decreased 37 percent from $166 million in the prior quarter, driven by lower sales volumes for CP slag, zircon and pig iron due to the timing of shipments.  Zircon sales of $64 million were 22 percent lower than $82 million in the prior quarter, as 3 percent higher selling prices were more than offset by a 24 percent decline in sales volumes due to shipment timing.  Pig iron sales of $19 million decreased 24 percent from $25 million in the prior quarter on 24 percent lower sales volumes, also due to shipment timing, while selling prices were level.  Feedstock and other products sales of $21 million decreased 64 percent from $59 million in the prior quarter.  There were no ilmenite sales in the current or prior quarter, and there were no CP slag sales in the current quarter in preparation for increased internal requirements following the closing of the Cristal acquisition, compared to $29 million of sales in the prior quarter.

Adjusted EBITDA of $80 million was 33 percent lower than $120 million in the prior quarter, driven primarily by lower sales volumes for feedstock and zircon due to shipment timing, unfavorable foreign exchange on costs and higher pigment unit costs related to planned maintenance undertaken in the fourth quarter 2018 that reduced margins on pigment products sold in the first quarter.

Other Financial Information

Selling, general and administrative expenses were $67 million compared to $76 million in the year-ago quarter and $50 million in the prior quarter.  Selling, general and administrative expenses primarily attributable to the Cristal acquisition were $8 million in the first quarter 2019 compared to $20 million in the year-ago quarter and $7 million in the prior quarter.  Interest expense of $49 million was level to the year-ago quarter and prior quarter.  On March 31, 2019, debt was $3,375 million and debt, net of cash and cash equivalents, was $1,641 million, including $666 million of cash restricted for the Cristal transaction.  Liquidity was $1,947 million comprised of cash and cash equivalents of $1,734 million, including $666 million of restricted cash, and $213 million available under revolving credit agreements.  In the first quarter 2019, capital expenditures were $25 million and depreciation, depletion and amortization expense was $47 million.

Forward Looking Statements

Statements in this release that are not historical are forward-looking statements within the meaning of the U.S. Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These forward-looking statements, which are subject to known and unknown risks, uncertainties and assumptions about us, may include projections of our future financial performance based on our growth strategies and anticipated trends in our business. These statements are only predictions based on our current expectations and projections about future events. There are important factors that could cause our actual results, level of activity, performance or achievements to differ materially from the results, level of activity, performance or achievements expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements. These and other risk factors are discussed in the company's filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), including those under the heading entitled "Risk Factors" in our Annual Report on Form 10-K/A for the year ended December 31, 2018.

Moreover, we operate in a very competitive and rapidly changing environment. New risks and uncertainties emerge from time to time, and it is not possible for our management to predict all risks and uncertainties, nor can management assess the impact of all factors on our business or the extent to which any factor, or combination of factors, may cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in any forward-looking statements. Although we believe the expectations reflected in the forward-looking statements are reasonable, we cannot guarantee future results, level of activity, performance or achievements. Neither we nor any other person assumes responsibility for the accuracy or completeness of any of these forward-looking statements. You should not rely upon forward-looking statements as predictions of future events. Unless otherwise required by applicable laws, we undertake no obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether because of new information or future developments.

Use of Non-U.S. GAAP Financial Information

To provide investors and others with additional information regarding the financial results of Tronox Holdings plc, we have disclosed in this press release certain non-U.S. GAAP operating performance measures of EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin and Adjusted net loss attributable to Tronox and a non-U.S. GAAP liquidity measure of Free Cash Flow.  These non-U.S. 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-U.S. GAAP financial measures presented by the company may be different from non-U.S. GAAP financial measures presented by other companies. Specifically, the company believes the non-U.S. 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.  With these first quarter of 2019 results, we have modified our definition of the Adjusted EBITDA metric to now exclude all realized and unrealized gains and losses caused by foreign currency re-measurement to be more consistent with how we report this metric to our lenders.  We have revised the comparable periods for consistency.  The presentation of these non-U.S. GAAP financial measures is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for results or guidance prepared and presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP.  A reconciliation of the non-U.S. GAAP financial measures to U.S. GAAP results is included herein.

For the Company's guidance with respect to second quarter 2019 Adjusted EBITDA, we are not able to provide without unreasonable effort the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, or reconciliation to such GAAP financial measure, because certain items that impact such measure are uncertain or out of our control, or cannot be reasonably predicted.

Management believes these non-U.S. GAAP financial measures:

  • Reflect the ongoing business of Tronox Holdings plc in a manner that allows for meaningful period-to-period comparison and analysis of trends in its business, as they exclude income and expense that are not reflective of ongoing operating results;
  • Provide useful information to investors and others in understanding and evaluating the operating results and future prospects of Tronox Holdings plc;
  • Provide an additional view of the operating performance of the company by adding interest expense & income, income taxes, depreciation, depletion and amortization to the net income. Further adjustments due to gain (loss) on extinguishment of debt, stock-based compensation charges, transaction costs associated with acquisitions, foreign currency re-measurements, impairments, settlements of pension and postretirement plans, impacts of tax settlements on non-income related taxes, severance expense, and noncash pension and postretirement expense and accretion expense are made to exclude items that are either non-cash or unusual in nature;
  • Adjusted EBITDA 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 U.S. GAAP and does not purport to be an alternative to measures of our financial performance as determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP, such as net income (loss). Because other companies may calculate EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA differently than Tronox, EBITDA may not be, and Adjusted EBITDA as presented in this release is not, comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies, and
  • We believe that the non-U.S. GAAP financial measure "Adjusted net income (loss) attributable to Tronox Holdings plc" and its presentation on a per share basis provide useful information about our operating results to investors and securities analysts. We also believe that excluding the effects of these items from operating results allows management and investors to compare more easily the financial performance of our underlying businesses from period to period.
