TRONOX LIMITED

NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

(Unaudited)

(Millions of U.S. dollars, except share, per share and metric tons data or unless otherwise noted)

1. The Company

Tronox Limited and its subsidiaries (collectively referred to as “Tronox,” “we,” “us,” or “our”) is a public limited company registered under the laws of the State of Western Australia, Australia. We are a global leader in the production and marketing of titanium bearing mineral sands and titanium dioxide (“TiO 2 ”) pigment. Our world-class, high performance TiO 2 products are critical components of everyday applications such as paint and other coatings, plastics, paper and other applications. Our mineral sands business consists primarily of three product streams—titanium feedstock, zircon and pig iron. Titanium feedstock is primarily used to manufacture TiO 2 . Zircon, a hard, glossy mineral, is used for the manufacture of ceramics, refractories, TV screen glass and a range of other industrial and chemical products. Pig iron is a metal material used in the steel and metal casting industries to create wrought iron, cast iron and steel. We have global operations in North America, Europe, South Africa, and the Asia-Pacific region. We operate three TiO 2 facilities at the following locations: Hamilton, Mississippi; Botlek, The Netherlands; and Kwinana, Western Australia, and we operate three separate mining operations: KwaZulu-Natal (“KZN”) Sands and Namakwa Sands both located in South Africa, and Cooljarloo located in Western Australia.

At June 30, 2014, Exxaro Resources Limited (“Exxaro”) held approximately 44.2% of the voting securities of Tronox Limited. Exxaro has agreed that through June 15, 2015, it would not engage in any transaction or other action, that would result in its beneficial ownership of the voting shares of Tronox Limited exceeding 45% of the total issued shares of Tronox Limited. We had service level agreements with Exxaro for services such as tax preparation, information technology services, and research and development, which amounted to $1 million and $2 million of expense during the three months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013, respectively, and $2 million and $4 million of expense during the six months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013, respectively.

Basis of Presentation

The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements are unaudited, and have been prepared pursuant to the rules and regulations of the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) regarding interim financial reporting. Accordingly, they do not include all the information and footnotes required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”) for complete financial statements, and should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2013. The Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheet as of December 31, 2013 was derived from audited financial statements, but does not include all disclosures required by U.S. GAAP.

In management’s opinion, the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements reflect all adjustments, which are of a normal recurring nature, considered necessary for a fair statement. Our unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of all majority-owned subsidiary companies. All intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation. Certain prior period amounts have been reclassified to conform to the manner and presentation in the current period.

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements, and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting periods. It is at least reasonably possible that the effect on the financial statements of a change in estimate due to one or more future confirming events could have a material effect on the financial statements.

During the three months ended June 30, 2014, we recorded out-of-period adjustments that should have been recorded during 2013 and the three months ended March 31, 2014 that increased cost of goods sold by $6 million, decreased selling, general and administrative expenses by $1 million, increased loss before income taxes by $5 million, decreased net income by $4 million and decreased income per share by $0.03. During the three months ended March 31, 2014, we recorded out-of-period adjustments that should have been recorded during 2013 that decreased cost of goods sold by $5 million, increased selling, general and administrative expenses by $1 million, decreased loss before income taxes by $4 million, decreased net loss by $3 million and decreased loss per share by $0.02. For the six months ended June 30, 2014, these out-of-period adjustments decreased cost of goods sold by $3 million, increased selling, general and administrative expenses by $1 million, decreased loss before income taxes by $2 million, decreased net loss by $2 million and decreased loss per share by $0.01. Certain of the adjustments recorded in each of the three months had an offsetting effect within the six months. After evaluating the quantitative and qualitative aspects of the adjustments, we concluded the effect of these adjustments was not material to any previously issued consolidated financial statements or our expected annual results for 2014.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

During 2014, we adopted accounting standards update (“ASU”) 2013-5, Parent’s Accounting for the Cumulative Translation Adjustment upon Derecognition of Certain Subsidiaries or Groups of Assets within a Foreign Entity or of an Investment in a Foreign Entity , which addresses the treatment of the cumulative translation adjustment into net income when a parent either sells or liquidates a part or all of its investment in a foreign entity or no longer holds a controlling financial interest in a subsidiary or group of assets within a foreign entity. The adoption of this guidance did not have an impact on our consolidated financial statements.

In May 2014, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (the “FASB”) issued ASU 2014-9, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (“ASU 2014-9”) , which states that an entity should recognize revenue to depict the transfer of promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the entity expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services. This guidance is effective for periods beginning after December 31, 2016, and will be applied either retrospectively or on a modified retrospective basis. We have not yet determined the impact, if any, that ASU 2014-9 will have on our consolidated financial statements.

2. Anadarko Litigation

In May 2009, we commenced an adversary proceeding in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York (Manhattan) (the “Bankruptcy Court”) against Kerr-McGee Corp. (“Kerr-McGee”) and its parent, Anadarko Petroleum Corp. (“Anadarko”), related to the 2005 Spin-Off of Tronox Incorporated (Tronox Incorporated v. Anadarko (In re Tronox Inc.)), 09-1198 (the “Anadarko Litigation”). Pursuant to the plan of reorganization, we assigned the rights to any pre-tax proceeds that may be recovered in the Anadarko Litigation.

On December 12, 2013, the Bankruptcy Court ruled in favor of the plaintiff, and found that Kerr-McGee acted with intent to delay, and hindered Tronox Incorporated’s creditors when it spun off Tronox Incorporated. The court held Anadarko liable, and indicated damages in the range of $5 billion to $14 billion, subject to a set off against claims that Anadarko filed as a creditor in Tronox Incorporated’s 2009 bankruptcy filing.

On May 29, 2014, the Bankruptcy Court approved a settlement with Anadarko for $5.15 billion. We will not receive any portion of the settlement amount. Instead, 88% of the $5.15 billion will go to trusts and other governmental entities for the remediation of polluted sites by Kerr-McGee. The remaining 12% will be distributed to a tort trust to compensate individuals injured as a result of Kerr-McGee’s environmental failures.

We received a private letter ruling from the U.S. Internal Revenue Service confirming that the trusts that held the claims against Anadarko are grantor trusts of Tronox Incorporated solely for federal income tax purposes. As a result, we believe we will be entitled to tax deductions equal to the amount spent by the trusts to remediate environmental matters and to compensate the injured individuals. These deductions will accrue over the life of the trusts as the $5.15 billion is spent. We believe that these expenditures and the accompanying tax deductions may continue for decades.

3. Income Taxes

Our operations are conducted through our various subsidiaries in a number of countries throughout the world. We have provided for income taxes based upon the tax laws and rates in the countries in which operations are conducted and income is earned.

Effective tax rate

     109     —       33     (5 )% 

The effective tax rate for each of the three and six months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013, differs from the Australian statutory rate of 30% primarily due to valuation allowances in the United States, income in foreign jurisdictions taxed at rates lower than 30%, and withholding tax accruals. Additionally, the effective tax rate for the three months ended June 30, 2014 is impacted by losses in jurisdictions where we record tax benefits combined with income taxed at rates lower than 30%.

We have valuation allowances against specific tax assets in various jurisdictions where, based on the tax laws of each relevant country, we cannot objectively assert that the deferred tax assets are more likely than not to be realized.

We continue to maintain a full valuation allowance related to the total net deferred tax assets in the United States, excluding the deferred benefit for the alternative minimum tax credit. Future provisions for income taxes will include no tax benefits with respect to losses incurred and tax expense only to the extent of current alternative minimum tax and state tax payments until the valuation allowance in the United States is eliminated. Accounting Standards Codification 740, Income Taxes , requires that all available positive and negative evidence be weighted to determine whether a valuation allowance should be recorded.

(1) Our participating securities do not have a contractual obligation to share in losses; therefore, when we have a net loss, none of the loss is allocated to participating securities. Consequently, for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013, the two class method did not have an effect on our loss per ordinary share calculation, and as such, dividends paid during the year did not impact this calculation.
(2) Loss per ordinary share amounts were calculated from exact, not rounded income (loss) and share information.

In computing diluted loss per share under the two-class method, we considered potentially dilutive shares. Anti-dilutive shares not recognized in the diluted earnings per share calculation were as follows:

Short-term Debt

UBS Revolver

We have a global senior secured asset-based syndicated revolving credit facility with UBS AG (the “UBS Revolver”) with a maturity date of June 18, 2017. The UBS Revolver provides us with a committed source of capital with a principal borrowing amount of up to $300 million, subject to a borrowing base. At June 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013, our borrowing base was $294 million and $210 million, respectively. During each of the three and six months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013, we had no drawdowns or repayments on the UBS Revolver. At June 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013, there were no outstanding borrowings on the UBS Revolver.

ABSA Revolving Credit Facility

We have a R900 million (approximately $85 million at June 30, 2014) revolving credit facility with ABSA Bank Limited (“ABSA”) acting through its ABSA Capital Division (the “ABSA Revolver”) with a maturity date of June 14, 2017.

(1) Average effective interest rate of 4.8% and 4.9% during 2014 and 2013, respectively.

Term Loan

On March 19, 2013, we, along with our wholly-owned subsidiary, Tronox Pigments (Netherlands) B.V., and certain of our subsidiaries named as guarantors, entered into a Second Amended and Restated Credit and Guaranty Agreement (the “Second Agreement”) with Goldman Sachs Bank USA, as administrative agent and collateral agent, and Goldman Sachs Bank USA, UBS Securities LLC, Credit Suisse Securities (USA) LLC and RBC Capital Markets, as joint lead arrangers, joint bookrunners and co-syndication agents. Pursuant to the Second Agreement, we obtained a $1.5 billion senior secured term loan (the “Term Loan”). The Term Loan was issued net of an original issue discount. At June 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013, the unamortized discount was $8 million and $11 million, respectively. During the three and six months ended June 30, 2014 we made principal repayments of $6 million and $10 million, respectively. We had no repayments during the three and six months ended June 30, 2013.

On April 23, 2014, we, along with our wholly-owned subsidiary, Tronox Pigments (Netherlands) B.V., and certain of our subsidiaries named as guarantors, entered into a Third Amendment to the Credit and Guaranty Agreement (the “Third Agreement”) with the lender parties thereto and Goldman Sachs Bank USA, as administrative agent, which amends the Second Agreement. The Third Agreement provides for the re-pricing of the Term Loan by replacing the existing definition of “Applicable Margin” with a grid pricing matrix dependent upon our public corporate family rating as determined by Moody’s and Standard & Poor’s (with the interest rate under the Third Agreement remaining subject to Eurodollar Rate and Base Rate floors, as defined in the Third Agreement). Pursuant to the Third Agreement, based upon our current public corporate family rating by Moody’s and Standard & Poor’s, the current interest rate per annum is 300 basis points plus LIBOR (subject to a LIBOR floor of 1% per annum) compared to 350 basis points plus LIBOR (subject to a LIBOR floor of 1% per annum) in the Second Agreement. The Third Agreement also amended certain provisions of the Second Agreement to permit us and certain of our subsidiaries to obtain new cash flow revolving credit facilities in place of our existing asset based revolving credit facility. The maturity date under the Second Agreement and all other material terms of the Second Agreement remain the same under the Third Agreement.

The Third Agreement resulted in a modification for certain lenders and an extinguishment for other lenders. Accordingly, we recognized an $8 million charge during the three months ended June 30, 2014 for the early extinguishment of debt resulting from the write-off of deferred debt issuance costs and discount on debt associated with the Second Agreement. We also paid $2 million of new debt issuance costs related to the Third Agreement during the three months ended June 30, 2014.

Senior Notes

On August 20, 2012, our wholly-owned subsidiary, Tronox Finance LLC, completed a private placement offering of $900 million aggregate principal amount of senior notes at par value (the “Senior Notes”). The Senior Notes bear interest semiannually at a rate equal to 6.375%, and are fully and unconditionally guaranteed on a senior, unsecured basis by us and certain of our subsidiaries. The Senior Notes were initially offered to qualified institutional buyers pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), and outside the United States to non-U.S. persons pursuant to Regulation S under the Securities Act.

On September 17, 2013, Tronox Finance LLC issued $900 million in aggregate principal amount of registered 6.375% Senior Notes due 2020 in exchange for its then existing $900 million in aggregate principal amount of its 6.375% Senior Notes due 2020. The Senior Notes are guaranteed by Tronox and certain of its subsidiaries. See Note 19.

Capital Leases

We have capital lease obligations in South Africa, which are payable through 2031 at a weighted average interest rate of approximately 14%. At both June 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013, such obligations had a net book value of assets recorded under capital leases aggregating $21 million and $23 million. During each of the three and six months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013, we made principal payments of less than $1 million.

Fair Value

Our debt is recorded at historical amounts. At June 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013, the fair value of the Term Loan was $1,487 million and $1,524 million, respectively. At June 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013, the fair value of the Senior Notes was $953 million and $924 million, respectively. We determined the fair value of the Term Loan and the Senior Notes using Bloomberg market prices. The fair value hierarchy for the Term Loan and the Senior Notes is a Level 1 input.

Debt Covenants

At June 30, 2014, we had financial covenants in the UBS Revolver, the ABSA Revolver and the Term Loan; however, only the ABSA Revolver had a financial maintenance covenant that applies to local operations and only when the ABSA Revolver is drawn upon. The Term Loan and the UBS Revolver are subject to an intercreditor agreement pursuant to which the lenders’ respective rights and interests in the security are set forth. We were in compliance with all our financial covenants as of and for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014.

Security

We have pledged the majority of our U.S. assets and certain assets of our non-U.S. subsidiaries in support of our outstanding debt.

15. Noncontrolling Interest

Exxaro has a 26% ownership interest in each of our Tronox KZN Sands (Pty) Ltd. and Tronox Mineral Sands (Pty) Ltd. subsidiaries in order to comply with the ownership requirements of the Black Economic Empowerment legislation in South Africa. Exxaro is entitled to exchange this interest for approximately 3.2% in additional Class B Shares under certain circumstances. Exxaro also has a 26% ownership interest in certain of our other non-operating subsidiaries. We account for such ownership interest as “Noncontrolling interest” in our unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements.

Tronox Limited Management Equity Incentive Plan

On June 15, 2012, we adopted the Tronox Limited Management Equity Incentive Plan (the “MEIP”), which permits the grant of awards that are comprised of incentive options, nonqualified options, share appreciation rights, restricted shares, restricted share units, performance awards, and other share-based awards, cash payments, and other forms as the compensation committee of the Board in its discretion deems appropriate, including any combination of the above. Subject to further adjustment, the maximum number of shares which may be the subject of awards (inclusive of incentive options) is 12,781,225 Class A Shares.

Restricted Shares

During the six months ended June 30, 2014, we granted restricted shares which vest ratably over a three-year period. These awards are classified as equity awards, and are accounted for using the fair value established at the grant date.

The following table presents a summary of activity for the six months ended June 30, 2014:

 

     Number of

    Weighted Average

     1,034,034      $ 20.55   
  

 

 

   

 

 

 

At June 30, 2014, there was $8 million of unrecognized compensation expense related to nonvested restricted shares, adjusted for estimated forfeitures, which is expected to be recognized over a weighted-average period of 1.5 years. The total fair value of restricted shares that vested during the six months ended June 30, 2014 was $2 million.

Restricted Share Units (“RSUs”)

During the six months ended June 30, 2014, we granted RSUs which have time and/or performance conditions. Both the time-based awards and the performance-based awards are classified as equity awards. The time-based awards vest ratably over a three-year period, and are valued at the weighted average grant date fair value. The performance-based awards cliff vest at the end of the three years. Included in the performance-based awards are RSUs for which vesting is determined by a Total Stockholder Return (“TSR”) calculation over the applicable measurement period. The TSR metric is considered a market condition for which we use a Monte Carlo simulation to determine the grant date fair value.

Options

During the six months ended June 30, 2014, we granted options to purchase Class A Shares, which vest ratably over a three-year period and have a ten-year term. The following table presents a summary of activity for the six months ended June 30, 2014:

The aggregate intrinsic values in the table represent the total pre-tax intrinsic value (the difference between our share price at the indicated dates and the options’ exercise price, multiplied by the number of in-the-money options) that would have been received by the option holders had all option holders exercised their in-the-money options at the end of the second quarter. The amount will change based on the fair market value of our stock. Total intrinsic value of options exercised during the six months ended June 30, 2014 was $1 million. We issue new shares upon the exercise of options. During the six months ended June 30, 2014, we received $2 million in cash for the exercise of stock options.

At June 30, 2014, unrecognized compensation expense related to options, adjusted for estimated forfeitures, was $13 million, which is expected to be recognized over a weighted-average period of two years.

Fair value is determined on the grant date using the Black-Scholes option-pricing model and is recognized in earnings on a straight-line basis over the employee service period of three years, which is the vesting period. The assumptions used in the Black-Scholes option-pricing model were as follows:

 

     February 10,
2014
    June 19,
2014
 

Number of options granted

     910,375        1,155   

Fair market value and exercise price

   $ 21.98      $ 27.25

Expected term (years)

     6        6   

Per-unit fair value of options granted

   $ 8.17      $ 10.80   

The fair value is based on the closing price of our Class A Shares on the grant date. The risk-free interest rate is based on U.S. Treasury Strips available with maturity period consistent with expected life assumption. The expected volatility assumption is based on historical price movements of our peer group.

T-Bucks Employee Participation Plan (“T-Bucks EPP”)

During 2012, we established the T-Bucks EPP for the benefit of certain qualifying employees of our South African subsidiaries. We funded the T-Bucks Trust (the “Trust”) with R124 million (approximately $15 million), which was used to acquire Class A Shares. Additional contributions may be made in the future at the discretion of the Board. The T-Bucks EPP is classified as an equity-settled shared-based payment plan, whereby participants were awarded share units in the Trust, which entitles them to receive Class A Shares upon completion of the vesting period on May 31, 2017. Participants are entitled to receive dividends on the shares during the vesting period. Forfeited shares are retained by the Trust, and are allocated to future participants. Compensation costs are recognized over the vesting period using the straight-line method. During 2012, the Trust purchased 548,234 Class A Shares at $25.79 per share, which was the fair value on the date of purchase. The balance at both June 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013 was 548,234 shares.

18. Segment Information

The reportable segments presented below represent our operating segments for which separate financial information is available and which is utilized on a regular basis by our chief operating decision maker to assess performance and to allocate resources. In identifying our reportable segments, we also considered the nature of services provided by our operating segments. We have two reportable segments, Mineral Sands and Pigment. Our Mineral Sands segment includes the exploration, mining, and beneficiation of mineral sands deposits, as well as heavy mineral production, and produces titanium feedstock, including chloride slag, slag fines, and rutile, as well as pig iron and zircon. Our Pigment segment primarily produces and markets TiO 2 . Corporate and Other is comprised of our electrolytic operations, all of which are located in the United States, as well as our corporate activities.

Segment performance is evaluated based on segment operating profit (loss), which represents the results of segment operations before unallocated costs, such as general corporate expenses not identified to a specific segment, interest expense, other income (expense), and income tax expense or benefit.

Net sales and income (loss) from operations by segment were as follows:

19. Guarantor Condensed Consolidating Financial Statements

The obligations of Tronox Finance LLC, our wholly-owned subsidiary, under the Senior Notes are fully and unconditionally (subject to certain customary circumstances providing for the release of a guarantor subsidiary) guaranteed on a senior unsecured basis, jointly and severally, by Tronox Limited (referred to for purposes of this note only as the “Parent Company”) and each of its current and future restricted subsidiaries, other than excluded subsidiaries, that guarantee any indebtedness of the Parent Company or its restricted subsidiaries (collectively, the “Guarantor Subsidiaries”). The Subsidiary Issuer, Tronox Finance LLC, and each of the Guarantor Subsidiaries are 100% owned, directly or indirectly, by the Parent Company. Our subsidiaries that do not guarantee the Senior Notes are referred to as the “Non-Guarantor Subsidiaries.” The guarantor condensed consolidating financial statements presented below presents the statements of operations, statements of comprehensive income (loss), balance sheets and statements of cash flow data for: (i) the Parent Company, the Guarantor Subsidiaries, the Non-Guarantor Subsidiaries, and the subsidiary issuer, on a consolidated basis (which is derived from Tronox historical reported financial information); (ii) the Parent Company, alone (accounting for our Guarantor Subsidiaries, the Non-Guarantor Subsidiaries, and Tronox Finance LLC on an equity basis under which the investments are recorded by each entity owning a portion of another entity at cost, adjusted for the applicable share of the subsidiary’s cumulative results of operations, capital contributions and distributions, and other equity changes); (iii) the Guarantor Subsidiaries alone; (iv) the Non-Guarantor Subsidiaries alone; and (v) the subsidiary issuer, Tronox Finance LLC.

 

21


Table of Contents

The guarantor condensed consolidating financial statements are presented on a legal entity basis, not on a business segment basis. The indenture governing the Senior Notes provides for a Guarantor Subsidiary to be automatically and unconditionally released and discharged from its guarantee obligations in certain customary circumstances, including:

 

    Sale or other disposition of such Guarantor Subsidiary’s capital stock or all or substantially all of its assets and all of the indenture obligations (other than contingent obligations) of such Subsidiary Guarantor in respect of all other indebtedness of the Subsidiary Guarantors terminate upon the consummation of such transaction;

 

    Designation of such Guarantor Subsidiary as an “unrestricted subsidiary” under the indenture;

 

    In the case of certain Guarantor Subsidiaries that incur or guarantee indebtedness under certain credit facilities, upon the release or discharge of such Guarantor Subsidiary’s guarantee or incurrence of indebtedness that resulted in the creation of such guarantee, except a discharge or release as a result of payment under such guarantee;

 

    Legal defeasance, covenant defeasance, or satisfaction and discharge of the indenture obligations;

 

    Payment in full of the aggregate principal amount of all outstanding Senior Notes and all other obligations under the indenture; or

 

    Release or discharge of the Guarantor Subsidiary’s guarantee of certain other indebtedness.

We revised each of our guarantor condensed consolidating financial statements as of December 31, 2013 and for each of the three and six months ended June 30, 2013 regarding the presentation of intercompany activities between the Parent Company, the Guarantor Subsidiaries, the Non-Guarantor Subsidiaries, and the subsidiary issuer. These revisions, which we determined are not material to our prior year condensed financial statements or consolidated financial statements based on quantitative and qualitative considerations, did not affect our consolidated financial position, consolidated results of operations or consolidated cash flows. The revisions were as follows:

 

    The condensed consolidating financial statements previously issued were not prepared under the equity method of accounting. In accordance with Rule 3-10 of Regulation S-X, we have properly prepared our revised condensed consolidating financial statements under the equity method of accounting.

 

    In the condensed consolidating financial statements previously issued, Tronox Finance LLC, the subsidiary issuer, was included in the “Parent Company” column. In the revised condensed consolidating financial statements, we have properly included Tronox Finance LLC in a separate column.

 

    Two subsidiaries which were incorrectly classified as “Guarantor Subsidiaries” have been reclassified to “Non-Guarantor Subsidiaries” in the revised condensed consolidating financial statements.

 

    Certain financial statement line items have been expanded and reclassifications were made to enhance transparency.
