Free cash flow equals cash flow provided by (used in) operating activities less capital expenditures (Non-GAAP)

Tronox Limited (NYSE:TROX) reported revenue of $492 million for the second quarter 2018, an increase of 17 percent compared to $421 million in the second quarter 2017 and 11 percent compared to $442 million in the first quarter 2018.  Income from operations of $65 million increased from $32 million in the year-ago quarter and $14 million in the prior quarter.  Net income from continuing operations attributable to Tronox Limited of $36 million, or $0.29 per diluted share, increased from a net loss from continuing operations attributable to Tronox Limited of $19 million, or ($0.16) per diluted share, in the year-ago quarter and a net loss from continuing operations attributable to Tronox Limited of $44 million, or ($0.36) per diluted share in the prior quarter.  Net income from continuing operations attributable to Tronox Limited in the second quarter 2018 included transaction costs primarily related to the Cristal acquisition, the release of tax valuation allowances, a share-based compensation reversal and a debt extinguishment loss that, combined, totaled $3 million or $0.02 per diluted share.  Excluding these items, adjusted net income from continuing operations attributable to Tronox Limited (Non-GAAP) was $39 million, or $0.31 per diluted share.  Adjusted EBITDA of $147 million increased 48 percent from $99 million in the year-ago quarter and 30 percent from $113 million in the prior quarter.

Jeffry Quinn, president and chief executive officer of Tronox said: "Our TiO2 business once again delivered strong results, posting revenue growth of 17 percent, adjusted EBITDA growth of 37 percent, an adjusted EBITDA margin of 34 percent and free cash flow of $93 million.  This high level of performance clearly reflected the benefits of vertical integration with all our assets in full operation and favorable market conditions across pigment, feedstock and co-products.  We continue to see balanced supply and demand and favorable market conditions across the entire value chain of our business.  In pigment, we believe producers globally continue to run at high utilization rates and, though there may be transient inventory builds in some sales channels, we believe inventories, in aggregate, are at normal and not excessive levels across the industry.  In addition, we are working successfully with our pigment customers on value stabilization initiatives with the intent to dampen margin volatility across the cycle.  In feedstock and co-products, we see tightening supply-demand balances, particularly in zircon and high-grade feedstock.  As a fully integrated producer, we expect to benefit at both feedstock and pigment levels.

Quinn continued, "The last several weeks have seen significant progress toward closing the Cristal TiO2 acquisition.  We received approval from the European Commission conditional upon divestiture of a paper laminate product grade we supply from our facility in the Netherlands.  We submitted to the Commission an executed definitive agreement with Venator Materials PLC to divest the paper laminate product grade and are awaiting final approval.  We also entered into a binding Memorandum of Understanding with Venator for the negotiation of a definitive agreement to sell Cristal's Ashtabula, Ohio, TiO2 production complex to Venator if a divestiture of Ashtabula is required to secure final regulatory approval in the United States.  This agreement enables us to vigorously defend the merits of the Cristal transaction in U.S. District Court, while ensuring we are prepared to move swiftly with a remedy transaction at a reasonable valuation if a divestiture of Ashtabula is required.  We look forward to the opportunity to demonstrate at the preliminary injunction hearing in U.S. District Court, as we did in the recent Part 3 Hearing before the FTC's Administrative Law Judge, how this pro-competitive, output-enhancing combination will benefit customers throughout North America and around the world and position us to succeed in a fiercely competitive global market." 

Second Quarter 2018

Tronox TiO2

TiO2 segment revenue of $492 million increased 17 percent compared to $421 million in the year-ago quarter, driven primarily by higher pigment and zircon selling prices.  Foreign currency translation benefitted revenue growth by approximately 2 percent, or $8 million, due to strengthening of the Euro.  Pigment sales of $354 million increased 16 percent compared to $306 million in the year-ago quarter, as average selling prices increased 17 percent (15 percent on a local currency basis) while sales volumes were 1 percent lower.  Pigment selling prices were higher in all regions.  Titanium feedstock and co-products sales of $123 million increased 23 percent from $100 million in the year-ago quarter, driven primarily by favorable zircon market conditions.  Zircon sales of $78 million more than doubled from $38 million in the year-ago quarter, as selling prices increased 47 percent and sales volumes increased 39 percent.  Pig iron sales of $20 million increased 54 percent from $13 million in the year-ago quarter, as selling prices increased 4 percent and sales volumes increased 52 percent.  Feedstock and other products sales of $25 million declined from $49 million in the year-ago quarter due to the timing of shipments, as CP titanium slag sales were $4 million lower than in the year-ago quarter and there were no ilmenite sales in the second quarter compared to $11 million of ilmenite sales in the year-ago quarter.

Compared sequentially, TiO2 revenue of $492 million increased 11 percent from $442 million in the first quarter, driven primarily by higher pigment, zircon and CP titanium slag sales volumes.  Pigment sales of $354 million increased 6 percent from $333 million in the prior quarter, as selling prices were level (1 percent higher on a local currency basis) and sales volumes increased 7 percent.  Translation of the Euro was a $3 million headwind on pigment sales in the second quarter.  Titanium feedstock and co-products sales of $123 million increased 27 percent from $97 million in the prior quarter, driven by higher zircon and CP titanium slag shipments.  Zircon sales of $78 million increased 28 percent from $61 million in the first quarter, as selling prices were level and sales volumes increased 27 percent.  Pig iron sales of $20 million increased 5 percent from $19 million in the prior quarter, as selling prices were 3 percent lower due to product mix and sales volumes increased 10 percent.  Feedstock and other products sales of $25 million increased 47 percent from $17 million in the prior quarter, as CP titanium slag sales in the second quarter totaled $14 million compared to no sales in the prior quarter and, conversely, there were no ilmenite sales in the second quarter compared to $5 million in the prior quarter.

TiO2 adjusted EBITDA of $169 million increased 37 percent from $123 million in the year-ago quarter.  Higher pigment and zircon selling prices were the primary drivers, partially offset by higher input costs which have since moderated and, to a lesser extent, unfavorable foreign exchange.  Compared sequentially, TiO2 adjusted EBITDA of $169 million increased 22 percent from $138 million in the prior quarter, driven by higher pigment and zircon sales volumes and favorable foreign exchange, primarily the South African Rand.  TiO2 income from operations of $108 million improved from $61 million in the year-ago quarter and $52 million in the prior quarter.  TiO2 delivered free cash flow of $93 million in the second quarter, as cash provided by operating activities was $120 million and capital expenditures were $27 million.

Consolidated

Selling, general and administrative expenses were $79 million, which included $27 million of transaction costs primarily related to the Cristal acquisition, compared to $63 million in the year-ago quarter, which included $9 million of transaction costs primarily related to the Cristal acquisition, and $76 million in the prior quarter, which included $20 million related to the Cristal acquisition.  Other income (expense), net, of $29 million benefited from significant foreign currency gains due to the strengthening of the U.S. dollar versus the South African Rand, compared to an expense of $3 million in the year ago quarter and an expense of $9 million in the first quarter.  Interest expense of $48 million compared to $47 million in the year-ago quarter and $49 million in the prior quarter.  On June 30, 2018, debt was $3,169 million and debt, net of cash and cash equivalents, was $1,477 million, including $656 million of cash restricted for the Cristal transaction.  Liquidity was $2,004 million comprised of cash and cash equivalents of $1,692 million, including $656 million of restricted cash, and $312 million available under revolving credit agreements.  Capital expenditures were $27 million and depreciation, depletion and amortization expense was $49 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 for the year ended December 31, 2017.

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 Tronox Limited's financial results, 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.  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.

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

  • Reflect Tronox Limited's ongoing business 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 Tronox Limited's operating results and future prospects;
  • Provide additional view of the operating performance of the company by adding interest expenses, taxes, depreciation, depletion and amortization to the net income. Further adjustments due to gain (loss) on extinguishment of debt and stock-based compensation charges are made to exclude items that are either non-cash or unusual in nature;
  • Assist investors to assess the company's compliance with financial covenants under its debt instruments;
  • 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 Limited" 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.
