Tronox Reports Second Quarter 2021 Financial Results

STAMFORD, Conn., July 28, 2021 /PRNewswire/ —

Second Quarter 2021 Financial Highlights:

  • Record revenue of $927 million increased 4 percent sequentially, driven primarily by 5 percent higher TiO2 average selling prices and 5 percent higher zircon average selling prices
  • Income from operations of $150 million; Net income of $77 million
  • GAAP earnings per share of $0.46; Adjusted diluted EPS of $0.61 (Non-GAAP); the difference is due to second quarter debt extinguishment costs
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $237 million, in line with guidance; Adjusted EBITDA margin of 26 percent (Non-GAAP); sequential improvement driven primarily by increased TiO2 and zircon selling prices
  • TiO2 sales volumes increased 1 percent sequentially, driven by continued recovery led by North America and Europe
  • Zircon sales volumes continue to be very strong, but declined 5 percent sequentially from record first quarter levels as expected

Strong Financial Position and Cash Flow:

  • Generated a record $150 million in free cash flow in the second quarter after investing $60 million in capital expenditures
  • Continued deleveraging with debt repayments of $135 million in the second quarter and $70 million completed in July for a total of $205 million, reducing total debt to $2.8 billion

Dividend Increase and Third Quarter Outlook:

  • Board declared a quarterly dividend of $0.10 per share representing an increase in the quarterly dividend rate of $0.02 per share, equating to a $0.40 per share annual dividend, reflecting the Board’s confidence in the business model and cash flow generation capabilities
    • The quarterly dividend will be payable on Friday, September 10, 2021, to shareholders of record of the Company’s ordinary shares at the close of business on Monday, August 9, 2021
  • TiO2 and zircon prices expected to continue to increase
  • TiO2 sales volumes expected to decline 5-10 percent sequentially from record second quarter levels, due to supplier and logistics constraints
  • Zircon sales volumes expected to remain elevated above 2019 and 2020 quarterly volume levels, benefiting from sales from inventory, though lower than second quarter 2021 levels
  • Adjusted EBITDA expected to increase to $245$260 million despite anticipated lower sales volumes and increased production costs which will be partially offset by expected price improvements and the roll off of second quarter operational disruptions

——
Note: For the Company’s guidance with respect to third quarter 2021 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 measures are uncertain, out of the Company’s control or cannot be reasonably predicted.

Tronox Holdings plc (NYSE:TROX) (“Tronox” or the “Company”), the world’s leading integrated manufacturer of titanium dioxide pigment, today reported its financial results for the quarter ending June 30, 2021, as follows:

Tronox achieved another record quarter of TiO2 volumes and key financial metrics including revenue, EPS, Adjusted EBITDA, and free cash flow.  Second quarter revenue increased 4 percent sequentially, primarily driven by higher TiO2 and zircon average selling prices. TiO2 sales volume grew 1 percent sequentially led by growth in North America and Europe.  Increases in TiO2 selling prices in all regions resulted in a 5 percent sequential improvement globally.  Revenue from zircon sales decreased 2 percent sequentially, as improved pricing was partially offset by lower volumes, as expected.  Tronox delivered Adjusted EBITDA of $237 million, another record achievement for the company.  Adjusted EBITDA margin was 26 percent. 

Commenting on these results, John D. Romano, co-chief executive officer, stated, “Jean-François and I are pleased with our solid second quarter performance, which was in line with the guidance we issued in April.  TiO2 volumes came in within the range, albeit at the low end, mainly due to supply chain challenges that limited vessel and container availability at a time when inventories were already at abnormally low seasonal levels.  We successfully implemented planned regional pricing initiatives for both TiO2 and zircon, offsetting headwinds from unfavorable foreign exchange rates, inflationary pressures, and operational disruptions that we foreshadowed on our first quarter earnings call.  This included EBITDA headwinds of $10 million from the planned maintenance shutdown of our synthetic rutile production facility and $4 million from longer than anticipated downtime at our Botlek pigment plant due to an extended supplier shutdown, as well as $5 million from unexpected downtime at our Stallingborough pigment plant due to mechanical issues, each of which will roll off in the third quarter.”

Jean-François Turgeon, co-chief executive officer, added, “We believe we are still early in the cycle.  Regional pricing initiatives are continuing across both TiO2 and zircon.  Demand remains very strong driven by a recovery across all of our end markets, and we are working very hard to support the demand of our customers. For the third quarter, we are balancing strong customer demand against our ability to deliver based on continued supplier and logistics constraints.  Taking these factors into consideration, we expect TiO2 volumes to decline 5-10 percent sequentially, which still represents growth compared to third quarter volumes in 2020, 2019, and 2018.  Zircon sales volumes are expected to remain elevated above 2019 and 2020 quarterly volume levels, benefiting from sales from inventory, though lower than second quarter 2021 levels.  Zircon pricing improvement in the third quarter is expected to more than offset the volume headwind.  While the operational disruptions from the second quarter will roll off, continued pressures on the cost side of the business from inflation and raw material price increases, as well as chlorine availability issues, are expected to partially offset continued price increases in the third quarter.  As a result, we anticipate Q3 2021 Adjusted EBITDA of $245$260 million.”

Mr. Romano added, “This is a critical time for Tronox.  While overcoming these various challenges, we are simultaneously focused on progressing project newTRON, our enterprise-wide cost reduction initiative that will transform our business and more than offset raw material and fixed cost inflation, enabling us to remain among the lowest cost TiO2 producers and enhance service to our customers.  Our vertically integrated business model continues to differentiate us from our competitors providing security of supply, a global footprint that we can leverage to our customers’ advantage, and co-products that contribute significant value to our portfolio.  We generated an impressive $150 million in free cash flow in the quarter and repaid approximately $200 million of debt through the end of July.  We are on a journey of transformation, and continue to deliver on our commitments to our stakeholders. We demand a lot of our organization, and our people continue to respond.  We are grateful for the ongoing efforts of our colleagues around the world to deliver safe, quality, low-cost, sustainable tons for our customers.”

Mr. Turgeon concluded, “Producing safe, quality, low-cost, sustainable tons is a key part of our strategy and how we strive to differentiate ourselves.  Though sustainability has long been a part of everything we do at Tronox, we are improving how we disclose our progress and efforts related to our Environmental, Social, and Governance performance as it becomes an increasingly critical focus area for our stakeholders.  This week, we published our 2020 sustainability report that highlights our commitments to improvements for the future.  It provides detail on how we will align ourselves with a global warming scenario below 2° Celsius and achieve an aspirational goal of net zero greenhouse gas emissions and zero waste to external dedicated landfills by 2050.  The report also reinforces our “Journey to Zero” to achieve zero injuries, zero incidents, and zero harm.  We invite all stakeholders to review this report on our website to learn about our accomplishments to date and the aggressive goals we have set for the future.”

Financial Summary for the Quarter Ending June 30, 2021
Tronox reported revenue of $927 million for the second quarter 2021, an increase of 60 percent compared to second quarter 2020 revenues of $578 million.  Income from operations of $150 million compared to $49 million in the year-ago quarter.  Net income attributable to Tronox was $73 million, or $0.46 per diluted share, compared to a net loss attributable to Tronox of $4 million, or $0.03 per diluted share, in the year-ago quarter.  Net income attributable to Tronox in the second quarter 2021 included debt extinguishment costs that totaled $23 million or $0.14 per diluted share.  Excluding these items, adjusted net income attributable to Tronox (Non-GAAP) was $96 million, or $0.61 per diluted share.  Adjusted EBITDA of $237 million increased 67 percent compared to $142 million in the prior-year quarter.

  • TiO2 sales of $740 million increased 59 percent compared to $466 million; sales volumes increased 45 percent versus the year ago quarter, driven by global market recovery in all regions; selling prices improved 9 percent on a U.S. dollar basis and 6 percent on a local currency basis year over year

  • Feedstock and other product sales of $66 million increased 50 percent from $44 million in the prior year period, primarily due to an improved pig iron market
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $237 million increased 67 percent compared to $142 million, driven by increased sales volumes and prices across all products and improved production costs, partially offset by unfavorable exchange rates and the previously cited operational disruptions in the quarter
  • Selling, general and administrative (“SG&A”) expenses were $77 million compared to $80 million in the prior year period
  • Interest expense of $36 million decreased from $47 million in the year-ago quarter, due to lower debt levels and reduced interest rates as a result of the first quarter refinancing transactions

  • Feedstock and other product sales of $66 million decreased 8 percent compared to $72 million due to timing as, despite higher pig iron selling prices, some pig iron volumes rolled into the third quarter
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $237 million increased 5 percent compared to $225 million, driven primarily by higher selling prices across all products, increased TiO2 volumes, and improved production costs, partially offset by the previously cited operational disruptions in the quarter and unfavorable exchange rates
