OM Group's CEO Discusses Q1 2012 Results - Earnings Call Transcript

On the right-hand side of the chart, and this is important are the three platforms that we built by executing our transformation strategy. These businesses contributed nearly $67 million of EBITDA or 81% of the consolidated total excluding corporate expenses. Most of our economic performance is now driven by businesses with exposure to attract it, long-term end market dynamics and by businesses that are better rewarded for the value they bring to customers not for selling materials by the pound.

Our strategic platforms provide multiple task for organic growth as well opportunities for synergistic acquisitions to create shareholder value.

Turning to slide 5, the execution of our strategy enhances our ability to grow profitably and sustainably. As these charts demonstrate trailing 12-month sales have nearly doubled compared to 2009 while adjusted EBITDA has more than doubled, and this does not yet reflect a full year of VAC results. OM Group is definitely on the move.

Turning to slide 6, through strategic realignment of our portfolio and solid execution of our strategy, we’ve created a diversified materials company with growing exposure to attractive end markets. With our platforms established, we are clearly focused on enhancing the value of this company by continuously developing our capabilities, identifying and acting on synergistic acquisitions, investing in organic growth and improving our operating execution. What does this take us, our vision as a company where sales grow faster than GDP and earnings grow faster than sales due to our operating leverage. We remain committed to prudent financial and operational management to maintain earnings growth and cash flow generation, and we’ll continue the strategy to create long-term shareholder value.

Slide 7, includes our key enterprise priorities for 2012. We’ve already discussed the positive impact from our VAC acquisition, not only through its contribution to our sales and earnings, but to the effectives we had on our portfolio transformation and our ability to build off that platform in the future. We’ve introduced new products, our activity level remains high in both sales and development of new products, and we’re seeing opportunities to gain market share through increased customer penetration and expansion in our new accounts and regions. All of these actions help us to deliver against our strategic objectives and bring about transformation of our portfolio.
