Chemtura Reports Fourth Quarter And Full Year 2012 Financial Results

Mr. Rogerson continued, “In 2012 Chemtura started to show its true potential. Chemtura AgroSolutions demonstrated that it can return to is former performance levels. Industrial Engineered Products sustained the improvements of 2011 and grew both revenues and profitability. Both of these segments have now demonstrated they can deliver the margins expected of strong specialty chemicals businesses. Consumer Products started to deliver improved performance after the below trend performance in 2011. For the company as a whole, Adjusted EBITDA grew by 9%, Adjusted EBITDA margins expanded to 14% and managed basis earnings per share from continuing operations grew by 27%. Cash provided by operations, less cash used in investing activities, or free cash flow, increased to $78 million in 2012 compared to $1 million in 2011.”


”In 2013, Chemtura is committed to delivering further improvement through a relentless focus on what we can control,” observed Mr. Rogerson. “We will preserve the pre-divestiture percentage margins of our remaining businesses by rapidly eliminating stranded costs arising from the Antioxidant sale. We will then drive them higher by continuing to invest in innovation bringing products with improved performance to existing customers and accessing new applications and customers. We will continue the focus on margin management that has expanded percentage margins again in 2012. Exploring portfolio transformation opportunities remains a priority.”

“Improved economic demand conditions in 2013 from the industrial markets we serve, either regionally or globally, will leverage our performance,” concluded Mr. Rogerson. “The year has started with comparable industrial demand conditions to those we experienced in the fourth quarter of 2012 which makes the first quarter challenging. Nevertheless, we see opportunities for demand recovery as the year progresses led by the Asia-Pacific region. With the investments we have made in people and facilities, our businesses are better positioned than in the past to capture the benefits of economic recovery as it occurs.”
