CEO Commentary

Jeffry N. Quinn , chairman and chief executive officer, commented, "Tronox delivered solid financial results in the quarter despite the significant reduction in demand and other challenges associated with the COVID-19 pandemic. Our results were consistent with the outlook provided at the time of our first quarter earnings release. TiO 2 volumes declined 19 percent quarter over quarter, and TiO 2 pricing was sequentially flat. Zircon sales volumes and price were both up by 2 percent sequentially owing to shipment timing and favorable product mix. We delivered Adjusted EBITDA of $142 million and an Adjusted EBITDA margin of 25 percent, once again benefitting from the resiliency of our vertically integrated business model and synergies from the Cristal acquisition, as well as focused cost reduction actions that we implemented at the outset of the pandemic. I am pleased with our delivery of these results given the ongoing macroeconomic environment and the challenges the men and women of Tronox overcame in the quarter. As an organization, we have remained relentlessly focused on the health and safety of our employees, managing our ongoing operations, and preparing for the future. The efforts of our people to proactively implement stringent and prudent access protocols and other safeguards at all our worldwide locations preserved our ability to operate and continue to meet our customers' needs.

"During the quarter, we also signed a definitive agreement with Eramet S.A. to purchase TiZir's TTI facility. This highly strategic acquisition will further our vertical integration strategy by increasing our titanium feedstock production capacity, thereby enabling our ability to meet our internal feedstock requirements and better serve our pigment customers. The addition of the facility to our portfolio will reduce our costs by reducing our reliance on third party feedstock suppliers and presenting an opportunity for cost and operating synergies. We continue to work through customary closing conditions and regulatory approvals.  As for Jazan, the amendment of the Jazan TSA will allow Tronox to increase technical and managerial resources devoted to the project as it continues to advance towards sustainable operations late in 2021.

"As we look to the third quarter, we are encouraged by the momentum carried forward from June, the strongest month of the second quarter. While the timing of re-opening of economies across the globe remains uncertain and subject to week-by-week developments, as of today, we anticipate TiO 2 volumes to continue to improve in the third quarter relative to the second quarter and for the zircon market to remain relatively stable as compared to the last several quarters.

"We are utilizing our integrated business planning capabilities to ensure we continue to satisfy our customers' needs, providing the same high level of service our customers have grown to expect from Tronox, while prudently managing working capital. As a result of the successful implementation of cost savings and disciplined management of our capital expenditures, we are confident in our ability to generate strong free cash flow for the year. Available liquidity of over $1.1 billion is more than sufficient to fund the TTI acquisition and support our business."

Mr. Quinn concluded, "I am very pleased that we have continued to deliver on our commitments, especially considering the challenges presented by the continued global macroeconomic uncertainty due to COVID-19. Our ability to confront these challenges and protect our people and our business, all while delivering reliable, high-quality product for our customers is a demonstration of our capabilities as a leading TiO 2 producer and the value of our vertically integrated business model."

Financial Summary for the Quarter Ending June 30, 2020

Tronox reported revenue of $578 million for the second quarter 2020, a decrease of 30 percent compared to second quarter 2019 revenues of $827 million on a pro forma basis.  Income from operations of $49 million compared to $84 million in the year-ago quarter on a pro forma basis.  Net loss attributable to Tronox was $4 million , or $0.03 per diluted share, compared to a net income from continuing operations attributable to Tronox of $26 million , or $0.17 per diluted share, in the year-ago quarter on a pro forma basis.  Net loss attributable to Tronox in the second quarter 2020 included transaction costs related to the acquisition of TTI, integration costs related to the Cristal acquisition, and a tax valuation allowance that totaled $9 million or $0.06 per diluted share.  Excluding these items, adjusted net income attributable to Tronox (Non-GAAP) was $5 million , or $0.03 per diluted share.  Adjusted EBITDA of $142 million decreased 29 percent compared to $200 million on a pro forma basis in the prior-year quarter.

Note: Since Tronox and Cristal combined their respective businesses on April 10, 2019 and to assist in the following discussion of second quarter 2020 performance compared to the second quarter 2019, we have provided the results on both a pro forma basis and a reported basis.

  • Feedstock and other products sales of $44 million decreased 46 percent from $81 million

  • Adjusted EBITDA of $142 million was 29 percent lower than $200 million in the year-ago quarter, driven primarily by lower sales volumes due to COVID-19, absence of deferred margin benefit, increased costs, and one-time costs related to our South African mining and beneficiation operations during the countrywide lockdown; this was partially offset by synergies, favorable foreign exchange rates, and improved ore grades at our Australian mine sites

  • Adjusted EBITDA of $142 million decreased 18 percent compared to $174 million , driven primarily by lower TiO 2 sales volumes due to COVID-19, lower feedstock and other product volumes, increased costs, and one-time costs related to our South African mining and beneficiation operations during the countrywide lockdown; this was partially offset by synergies, favorable foreign exchange rates, and improved ore grades at our Australian mine sites

  • SG&A expenses were $80 million compared to $94 million , due to cost reductions

  • Interest expense of $47 million increased from $45 million in the previous quarter, due to new debt issuance

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 including the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and anticipated synergies based on our growth and other 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, actual synergies, or achievements to differ materially from the results, level of activity, performance, anticipated synergies or achievements expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements. Significant risks and uncertainties may relate to, but are not limited to, the risk that a regulatory approval that may be required for the TTI transaction is delayed, is not obtained or is obtained subject to conditions that are not anticipated; the risk that the TTI transaction does not close or that the related transaction agreement is terminated; the risk that expected synergies, operating efficiencies and other benefits expected from the TTI transaction will not be realized or will not be realized within the expected time period; business and market disruptions related to the COVID-19 pandemic, market conditions and price volatility for titanium dioxide, zircon and other feedstock materials, as well as global and regional economic downturns, including as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, that adversely affect the demand for our end-use products; disruptions in production at our mining and manufacturing facilities; and other financial, economic, competitive, environmental, political, legal and regulatory factors. These and other risk factors are discussed in the Company's filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

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, synergies 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, including its presentation on a per share basis, 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 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, integration costs, purchase accounting adjustments, 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.

Unaudited Pro Forma Financial Information

On April 10, 2019 , we announced the completion of the acquisition of the TiO 2 business of Cristal which impacts the comparability of the reported results for the second quarter of 2020 compared to the second quarter of 2019.  Since Tronox and Cristal have combined their respective businesses effective with the merger date of April 10, 2019 , the three and six months ended June 30, 2020 reflect the results of the combined business, while the three and six months ended June 30, 2019 reflect the results of the combined business from April 10, 2019 . To assist with a discussion of the second quarter of 2020 and the second quarter of 2019 results on a comparable basis, certain supplemental unaudited pro forma income statement and Adjusted EBITDA information is provided on a consolidated basis and is referred to as "pro forma information."  The pro forma information has been prepared on a basis consistent with Article 11 of Regulation S-X, assuming the merger and merger-related divestitures of Cristal's North American TiO 2 business and the 8120 paper laminate grade had been consummated on January 1, 2018 . In preparing this pro forma information, the historical financial information has been adjusted to give effect to pro forma adjustments that are (i) directly attributable to the business combination and other transactions presented herein, such as the merger-related divestitures, (ii) factually supportable, and (iii) expected to have a continuing impact on the combined entity's consolidated results. The pro forma information is based on management's assumptions and is presented for illustrative purposes and does not purport to represent what the results of operations would actually have been if the business combination and merger-related divestitures had occurred as of the dates indicated or what the results would be for any future periods. Also, the pro forma information does not include the impact of any revenue, cost or other operating synergies in the periods prior to the acquisition that may result from the business combination or any related restructuring costs.
